I'm sorry to hear about your mother Boss. It's never easy losing a loved one. My full condolences.

Anyway, onto the story. I think what you're sorta dancing around, is that this guy needs to be college age. Early 20s. It's the right age where you might know just enough to get by in life, but at the same time you haven't really lost your innocence. There's still plenty of opportunity to be goofy, but there would be the ability to buckle down when he needs to.

And yeah, you don't want to go full goof. You need to make them well rounded. A goof should still be lovable, but go too goofy, and then they just become annoying.

Oh believe me, you stick around here, and you won't be able to avoid me ;)

As far as replying directly goes, it's basically as you've just seen. You hit the quote button, cut it down to what you want to say, and then reply. We also do use the '@name:' format as a framing device in our posts, but there's no like, notification system. If you want to get someone's attention you can always PM them though.

Oh wow! That's a real deep cut quote of mine. I'm honored you went digging. Yeah, that was definitely my framework at the time. These days I would say I'm looking more like "manga inspired prose". I want to transpose the feel of it into words. A big part of that is both my own moving on in life (going from college to working full time), and just he general betterment of my writing skills.

You can't rely on art as a crutch though. Building your setting is super important. Even if you don't think you're good at it to start (and let me tell you friend, none of us are), one day you will be good at it. And what's more, you're probably better at it right now than you think. Half the battle is confidence.

I think this one has struck some sort of chord. Not sure what sound it's producing yet, but it's definitely struck.

Yeah, they come and go. The main thing is that if we have an official discord, then somebody has got to moderate it, and we simply don't have that kind of time. (I take this opportunity to remind/inform that MR's mods and admins do this gig for fun, not because we're getting paid (we aren't))

Welcome to MangaRaiders!

It can definitely be hard to stay motivated. Personally, I'm motivated by a strong guilt response to keep myself busy. Like, if I quit now, then all that effort before is just a waste isn't it? But at the same time, being a writer is a big part of my own self conception. If a writer doesn't write, then what do you become right?

Of course, when it comes right down to it, we all love being creative on a base level. It's that, more than anything else, that keeps us all moving forward.

Good luck!

Just a minor hiccup with the domain. We're back to business as usual now!

Immersion maybe? Now that you say it like that, I get what you mean. But yeah, I'm not really sure what the right word for it would be.

General Discussion / Re: Too Much Inspiration

I've definitely seen people doing this exact thing. Taking things and making drawings for them. So I don't think it's all that uncommon, it's just a different way of channeling creativity.

Honestly, it reminds me of being a kid. Sticks in the yard becoming legendary swords in the mind's eye and that sort of thing. Simple imagination running wild. So I don't think it's necessary to think of it as a bad thing. You just need to work on your organization. Try sorting these things out into a pile of things you can use, and a pile of things you can't. That way if you don't have a use for something at the moment, you won't feel like it's gone to waste, because you will still have a record of it. Might just be a good way to help you learn to let go.

I mean, pretty straight forward. Pentagram = 5 points, star of David = 6 points. I don't think leaving the tattoos out is the right choice, just keep an eye out to not mix your secular and occult symbology.

We could also have a whole discussion about how upside down crosses aren't unholy, but that's for another day perhaps.

Thanks Lego! I don't really know what you mean by 'placing' scenes though? Did you mean 'pace'? I suppose both words are applicable.

Yeah, people gotta die in a war arc. Not much of a war otherwise. I just don't want our heroes to be so brutal that they become morally compromised by the end of this whole thing.

Yeah, I was concerned about potentially taking it too far there. Breathing in hot air can really cool your lungs in real life, but hey, it's the Net. Bodies are naturally more durable.

I always assumed they were part of the ecology, although definitely not a monoculture. But y'know, it's a manga forum. Gotta at least have a few.

That's great to hear! (The sold out thing, not the work thing). I can see why too! That's a damn fine Link!
