Hi Hi Y’all!
Plus, updated character art by the ever fabulous Juliet~
Hi Hi Y’all~
Okay, here’s the deal. Even after a few episodes I am still unsure on where I stand with Star Trek Lower Decks.
A huge part of me is like OMG THIS IS. WHAT. JUST. JUST NO.
And there is the huge part of me that is like FUNNY. REMINDS ME OF OLD TREK. LOWER CREW MEMBERS HAVE IT ROUGH. I LOVE ENSIGN BECKETT.
I don’t know if I can form a an opinion until the season is over. With the episodes I’ve seen it is way too back and forth. I mean, it is a great and welcome relief from the hard core series drama and lack of strong humor to engage in moral lessons CBS has invested into their Star Trek shows. However, it is also a basic economic move of creating shows aimed towards money making groups.
I don’t know guys. I just can’t decide. Ensign Beckett has wormed her way into my heart. That move with the Ferengi she did for Boimler was too nice. Also, she kicks Klingon ass.
Hi Hi Y’all,
Tomorrow or Sunday I will have a post explaining in full detail everything that has really been going on in the last few months, why everything has been really hectic and crazy and why Corona virus has really effected things on my end.
I do, however, should have/maybe have/possibly have/tried to have fixed everything enough that I can get back onto a schedule and have some balance again. So without further ado I would like to introduce this week’s Fan Fiction Friday:
For Avatar we have one new chapter and it’s a decent intro to the starting point of some of the side characters you’ll meet. We learn a little about the Crown Prince of the Fire Nation Ozuko’s [you’ll find out more about the name later] and his sister Princess Azumi’s characters. They are definitely starting from a place of being in a bubble and needing to learn a lot about the world. You’ll also see a bit more context around the current Avatar’s family life and the personality of the current Fire Lord Azai.
The reason these two are being updated is because during this week’s struggles I have for some reason been having dreams about some of the future ideas I had for them so I figured I could use the inspiration to write. Also, I love Juliet’s work.
Please enjoy and thanks for everything,
Hi Hi Y’all,
Here it is. The post on Dreams Askew! Well, sorry to disappoint you, and myself, but we haven’t gotten to it yet! We got so caught up in the joint character creation part that we ran out of time for our actual session. So I present you the Dreams Askew Character I will FINALLY get to be playing : Robyn “Rob” McFeever – the Bigender Raven & leader of the Pina Coladas.
Here Are The Key Points To Include were: being a bigender raven, red eyes, fucked-up hair, gloves, overalls, support from a ghost and their associated sobriety cult and what 2 talents they have from a list (infirmary and guns).
That transformed into this character. I would describe the hatchling as an individual with a small round face, large owl like red eyes, a tattoo of a lemon where a 3rd eye should be, red apple earrings, overalls that include one shoulder on/ one shoulder off, a giant image of a 1/2 peeled banana a large pouch below it one leg having a flare bottom and the other shredded off at the knee, a green scarf with yellow pineapples, an under black shirt that is actually sleeved on one side with a tight red pair of gloves and not sleeved on the other side to reveal a fruit themed sleeve tattoo and large steam punk/worker-esque worker glove and purple boots with coconuts on them.
The ghost became Barnabus “Barnie” The Peeping ghost. At the moment he is eternally trapped wearing the bottom half of a Barnie the Dinosaur mascot costume, an ironic t-shirt, surfer dude necklace, an over the shoulder Barnie bag and is bald.
My favorite last minute creative decision was making the sobriety group ‘The Pina Coladas’ actually a front for the local cult. Where my character used them to move into the fruit, vegetables and general produce area of the market area and create absolutely safe territory in an uncertain terrain. Somehow, making them all worship Rob as a savior/messiah.
So, yep… That’s Dreams Askew character creation guys! I’ll try to get artwork soon 😉
Hi Hi Y’all ~
So, my Dungeon and Dragon’s Campaign has had its session canceled a few times in a row now. Nothing serious or detrimental. However, in its place this week one of our members has us playing Dreams Askew. Wow, I was not prepared for such an idea. Might as well give it a go.
I have no idea who I’ll be or how it will go, but I’ll let you know next week how it went.
Hi Hi Y’all~
Just posting the tentative schedule for the next few Fan Fiction Friday’s!
[9/11] DC Comics Comic Theme Day #1 – DC EDITS
[9/18] Marvel Comic Theme Day #2 – House of M
Hi Hi Y’all,
Happy Mondays! We’ve survived the hurricane/tropical storm and we can get back into this new weeks normal schedule~
Also, I had a funny dream last night. I was dreaming of a one shot novella about a saint, a hero and a princess after the end of defeating the demon king. The saint was pretending to like the hero and be with him to cover up the fact he was really with the princess! Can’t remember why that was shocking but it was. Turns out she was cooperating with them because all she wanted to do was be done with this job she never wanted. Turns out the kingdom has to make a deal with the surviving son of the Demon King for peace and harmony between humans and the remaining demons. Only, he wants to marry the SAINT– since she is single.
Maybe, one day when I have time, I’ll write a one shot for it. Sounds interesting, right?
Hi Hi Y’all,
Douluo Dalu: Set in the future of the world, the grand children of grand children inherit their family abilities and more? Meeting new characters with new goals and ambitions you can follow the journey of: Tang Lili, Dugu Jia and Wang Wei. As they meet companions to form a new generation of Shrek Seven Devils and new enemies to face.
1/2 Prince: With the author creating a sequel to the series focused on the main characters’ children why not look back at what the video game world could of become? After decades of the game being off marker due to NPC’s gaining self-awareness new players dive in to a world trying to figure itself out. These new characters end up in the most broken and confused continent. Completely filled with self-aware NPCs, players who chose the worst starting continent and ruffians who want to avoid the niceties of the other continents. Can a new legend make its start on this land? Perhaps, a Princess or an Empress instead of a Prince? Either way, there’s some vampire heroine, a fallen angel cousin and a guy hiding his beauty behind a beast man character.
Hi Hi Y’all~
Sadly, my D&D session got canceled for this week and so I don’t have any new quotes or anything for my character.
Also, I am going to link a Critical Role related video on character backstory creation. I didn’t use it for this character but I wish I did when I first started playing D&D because a lot of things said about creating a good backstory are common mistakes made.
I’d also like to take one moment to point out something: D&D as a way to look at yourself and expand your view. For years all my early characters were half elves (which says a lot) and they were almost always Sorcerers (again, that says a lot). When I finally got out of that box, I grew as both a person and a writer.
Currently, I am playing a 1/2 orc druid in my main campaign and having the time of my life doing it.
