Outlaw Jesse James
- Intro Video
Basically, my version of Jesse is a sort of AU/Historical fiction/fantasy thing, depending on whatever stories he’s in with others. So I combine some historical facts with a great deal of creative/historical liberties. Easy enough to do, since his actions and character were already debated during his own lifetime and the subsequent myths the public clings to. Most of the time, I prefer playing Jesse toward the end of his life, after he’s worn out most options for potential gang members and is dealing with increasing paranoia, etc, because of it. But, I also am totally fine with jumping around in time throughout his life (again, combining the historical with the fictional, hence the “AU” factor). For example, I’ve had (and currently have) some stories involving reunions with old friends who came back into Jesse’s life into his later life, and others where it’s back in time during the height of the James (or James-Younger) gang’s exploits, and he meets various characters while hiding out in parts of Missouri, Iowa, MN, Texas and elsewhere… or even the beginning of his nine-year courtship, beginning with nursing him from a second life-threatening chest wound, with the woman was not only his first cousin but would also be come his wife.Some storylines, I play my AU Jesse as currently married to Zerelda (“Zee”). Others, I write that his wife is deceased and his children are being looked after by relatives he sees now and again, and he may have other love interests. Either way, when it comes to actual love interest or marriage-centered stories, I’m always open to considering players who might like to write for Zee or other women he’s pursuing (writing chemistry allowing, of course).
