And so it begins...

A lot of work has been put into this, so I hope everyone who reads this story of ours enjoys it.

And glad to see you're along for the ride, Fortis! I promise the next chapter won't disappoint!

I never knew about that Kenpachi bit. I guess when you apply that fact then Ichigo's win makes a bit more sense, but even still, a soul reaper of Kenpachi's level could very well still curb stomp a rookie like Ichigo while still holding back. For plot's sake I understand why it happened, but personally I can't get behind that possibility under a normal circumstance.

Always cool to see your fan art man. Can't wait to see the individual pieces!

Damn man you're really killing the animations dude! Just imagine a full length animated Coryn vs Lego short. Ah man that would be so dope.

And I think it's cool that you summarize your yearly artwork with a theme. Show us more. NOW!!!

Dawg that's a really nifty program you got going on there! Those programming chops of yours definitely looks like they come in handy.

And great work as always suuper! Beautiful faces all around.

It's funny cause I remember taking a glance at the Retcon forest piece back when Dots was really active. And then years later, after finally deciding to tear through DOTS in one read, I couldn't find the damn thing. Good to know you still got it saved after all these years.

And yeah, I think that arc we had going would be a great place to start. I still got so many ideas for that damn thing too. Once my other obligations are fulfilled, I'm going to be giving DOTS some more attention again.

But DOTS ending would kinda suck though. Then again, all great things come to an end eventually.

So for one of my goals for 2019, I've decided to look into different ways to make some sort of profit from doing things I love. Obviously I know that you should generally do the things you love simply because you love them, and that you should not focus on the idea of making thousands of dollars from your passions because quite frankly, it's a not simple process and can easily crash and burn in your face. However, after seeing so many different testimonials from people online who went from being broke to rich just by following their dreams over the years (granted, a lot of these are probably fake), I figured I could at least try it out and tackle this idea as a side project while still maintaining my full time job for the time being.

So what exactly do I love the most, you ask? Well...

-Playing fighting games
-Anime and Manga

Out of these three passions, I decided that making a profit from writing will be my main focus. To specify though, when I say making a profit from my writing, I don't mean making a profit from writing books as you probably assumed. I mean it in a more niche sense. A freelance writing sort of sense.

I'm going to break into the freelance world. And I'm going to do it by producing copywriting content.

Now I know what you're asking: "Fro, how the hell are you going to become a freelance writer without any relevant experience? Do you even have a portfolio?!"

No I don't. But I do have three other things that'll help: Google, a freelance website called "Upwork" and infinite patience.

Upwork is essentially a free website for freelancers from all walks of life to find work in their particular field. There are of plenty jobs ranging from small, one time short projects, to larger ongoing projects that pay a hefty sum when completed. I've heard good and bad things about Upwork, but one thing is for sure: It's legit, and its possible to make some reasonable profit from it if you're willing to put in the work.

So here's my plan:

I'm going to start out by fishing for some short and easy low paying writing jobs just to build up my portfolio and my experience in general. Once I get some decent testimonials from my clients, I'll start working my way up to the more lucrative paying gigs. While doing this, I'll also be doing extensive research on Copywriting (Which I'm already doing) and whatever other writing niches I may get myself into. That way I can learn as I'm going, and not waste time with doing months of research without putting any of that knowledge into action.

I'm not trying to make millions from doing all this. That would be impossible, especially for a site like Upwork (although I have heard freelancers from Upwork grossing over a 100k. Not sure if that's true or not yet though).
I'm just trying to get my foot into the door. There's going to be frustrations and failures along the way I'm sure. But at least I'm taking a chance with it y'know? And besides, like I said this will be only be a side hustle, so I won't be dedicating my entire life into this freelance thing. I still got my real job to fall back on if things don't necessarily work out.

I've already submitted a proposal to a client who needs someone to write web content for their new leggings company. I'm not really expecting to land the job, but hey if I do, then that'll be a great start for me.

Oh, and here's the link for the site I mentioned if any of you guys are interested. https://www.upwork.com/

That great to hear Manimal! The majority of life is a mundane struggle, but learning to appreciate those little things and taking positives from even the most crappiest of situations is what makes us feel alive as humans. Keep on man! I hope forming that band finally works out for you.

I'm on the same boat as Coryn pretty much. Lost a lot of weight and got a lot of writing done in 2018. I'm looking to carry on that momentum into 2019 and improve on my consistency. Also, 2018 was the first year I actually felt good about my work. I want to feel like that all through 2019.

Ahhhhhh I see where I got confused now.

I was unaware that Dots was taking place while Lego was working on Dystop 2. Lego pretty much took ideas used in Dots as inspiration and applied them in Dystop 2.

Now that I understand the discrepancy, I'll be honest with you here. There's no way to completely clean this up as I'm sure you know already. Even if we go with your suggestion, the whole thing will still come off as messy. Especially to newer readers getting into the canon. However, damage control is damage control, and it's definitely needed in this case. Looking forward to your offical write up on this for the timeline doc. An update for that portion of the guide has been long overdue.

I'm still curious as to what Lego thinks of all this. This is his mess after all. Maybe he'll have some alternatives of his own.

Any questions?

After reading all of that I got thousands, but I'll stick with a few for now.

For starters, when a story starts and ends on a particular date in irl, is that the date we go with in canon? Even if the author intended the story to take place within a particular time frame? To clarify, let's go with The Strand of Truth and Drifter as examples. The Strand of Truth was posted and finished near the end of X017, with Drifter preceeding not long after it in March of X018 (Or whenever i posted that damn story). However, in actual canon, The Strand of Truth was written to take place sometime in X016, just before my real life hitaus from the forum, with Drifter taking place a year later. If we were to go by the "present" rule, then Drifter would take place in just few months after the strand of truth, which, in terms of story, wouldn't make sense since Drifter was written to serve as an explanation behind my character's disappearance during that time frame. I'm guessing this is partially the problem with Dystop as well, correct?

Secondly, If I read what you wrote correctly, Achan and Akan were officially introduced to the raiders in Dots??? How can that be if they already appeared near the end of Dystop 2? Shouldn't the raiders already know who they are? That part is really fuzzy to me. They appeared during the ecchiworld arc, right? I think I should reread that section, because now I'm feeling like I missed something.

And finally, 4kids goes bankrupt and rebrands when exactly? X011? X012? According to Lego, the rebrand happened long after the 4kCu undergone their mission, which I guess would be years after then? Of course, there's that time loop thing, which further complicates things. I don't know man. I'm really confused at this point.

I have no objections to any decisions made on your end regarding this matter. All I hope is that by the end of it this entire fiasco will finally make some damn sense.

Lego a soundcloud rapper? What timeline is this? :ohmy:

Not too bad there homie. You definitely got potential. I would work on flow and delivery for the most part. There were points where you were rapping off beat and kept on with it. Other than that, you're decent. Nice beat selection by the way.

I should rap more myself now that I think about it...   :-\

Bonus Post: Officially beginning my quest to read the entirety of Mortal Combat these next few weeks. Wish me luck people.
