So I found it. I desperately scribbled it 5 minutes before midnight while drunk as heck: Sketch survival AND Writing survival.

I failed to add to writing survival though, but I found it interesting how random and useless it was.

Still, it counts dammit!




Translation:

There was once a man who had a plan to make the world  better place

so he stole a diamond and sold it for money and gve it to a charity.

The money was stolen by  thief -  a gangster to be exact.

The gangster went on to murder, steal and control an entire city through terror and blood

but he saved a lot more lives than he took


And days 130

All in all I'm super dissapointed with myself. My time away was a great opportunity to see if my regimens could exist outside of my room and computer but I failed utterly. I did learn some things, but I definitely never had the will or chance to draw at least an urban sketch of my foreign surroundings. Dammit this is not what I hoped to be saying after being at this for long.

That being said I did get them done in their timelines so that's a start.

That being said the truth is here: Regimens DO NOT make finished projects. If you ever do regimens make sure you are learning something at least, otherwise the days where you feel zero inspiration (where a regimen should theoretically be bulletproof) you will just scribble something on a notebook in a drunken stupor, and that helps noone.

Also: 8 days till my freedom yay!

This is so perfect because I get to low key get fed trivia I would die for in an interview for story on the forums. Definitely hoping more people jump on and heck yes if someone comes up with another Litmus let's just make it one fat workshop

That being said... I'm so bad at this lel


1.) What is your MC's dream job?

He is living it: A Fisher, looking for treasures in alternate dimensions

2.) At the halfway mark of your story, your MC meets a Genie and is granted one wish. At that moment in time, what would that wish be?

Things are not going well for him, but his sister is miraculously untouched by all of it. He wishes high-level protection for her

3.) What kind of gift would your Protagonist give for Christmas?

Food. Probably not made by himself

4.) If your character existed in our world, would they watch sports? If so what would be their favourite?

Oh he'd definitely be celebratory of trialathons. Any sport that isn't solitary. Fighting? MMA. Snow? Then they've got to do that skiing and shooting thing that they do. He wouldn't find something that quite fits his forte, but he'd enjoy comparing himself to others

5.)  What would you say their best qualities are?

Rex is very comforteable with being an underdog. It's not even that, exactly. He feels exactly like a professional fisherman would: Content with the job, understanding of its difficulties, but patient and ready to grow old doing it. He is not a shounen protagonist shouting to the heavens that he'll be the best at the job, no.

6.) What would you say their worst qualities are?

He is way, way too proud. If he were honest to his aspirations, he'd find a mentor. He also refuses to admit the obvious fact that he's in the center of a grand story: His clan and parents died for a reason, but he blocks it out and wants to be mundane. Spoiler alert it doesn't work for him.


7.) Your MC wakes up on a desert island, what would they do first?

He would assume that he's back home in his city, or he fainted in a rift. He'd immediately rappel himself across the landscape to find out where he is. Depending on which universe he's in (mine or Earth) he'd either have a short time before the rift closes and be stranded there forever, or he'd find help soon enough

8.) Who is the first person to fall in love/have a crush on your MC?

I do not know

9.) Whats a hidden talent of your Protagonist?

He can beat box - not in the rapping sort of way. It sounds sort of melodic. Nobody else can do it quite like him, but it's so useless practically because it's hard to sing or rap to.


10.) What kind of music do they listen to. If they don't, what kind of music do you think would appeal to them?

- I'm suprised that I don't know this one. He'd probably listen to fast paced industrial music for sure.

I have Day 4 written down somewhere but I've lost it and will be away from my workstation for the week. When I find it i'll post. Depending on interwebs I might just write at home and post later

Day 5


The Angel Lord conquered the continent with his pure fist of good, and they sent the Villain after him.

It was a terrible tragedy: Already the kingdom of Orcs had fallen to the holy hoard of warriors. The greatest warriors were turned into plushies. Only the children were spared from the transformation. In the aftermath of the great battle the proud steel fortress was made of glass that cast a multicoloured light when the sun shone through.

The Villain would pay back this injustice thrice. He cut a course of blood in his adventure, armed with the darkest of magics until he finally found the Angel Lord.

And standing there in a puddle of blood, The Villain drew his black sword and pointed it at his sworn enemy.

The Angel Lord smiled at him and said,

"You're just in time for tea."

Day 3 "The Shieldsmith"

"It's impossible! Everyone eventually finds a way to break a shield"

"But everyone only ever creates swords."

Terefir turned his back on a 15 year course in The Academy of Smithery and went into the mountains... To create shields. All the educators' hopes in the 17 year old prodigy who'd lived his whole life on campus were dashed. They'd expected him to forge at least two weapons worthy of being carried by heroes in his life time. In fact, some of the weapons he'd created during his studies were already being used by royalty across the nation. His enchantment and handiwork were rivalled to none.

And now he abandoned it to make shields.


500 years later, The Demon Lord revived and successfully brought a meteor down upon the world. All the kingdoms fell. The earth boiled in flames and even that which survived was ravaged by bloodthirsty beings.

But there is a mountain where the grass is still green and where survivors found themselves unharmed by the missiles that fell from the sky.

In his hundred years, Terefir never managed to make a shield that a hero could carry into a battle, but he did make gigantic ones that covered his workshop, and with that, he saved 400 souls. 400 souls who, at least for a little moment were alive and well.

And where there is life, there is hope.

Mwahahaha yesss juicy trivia from your universe.

An interdimensional chef would be quite the Toriko manga.

The farmer switcheroo. I wonder how common that one is haha. Has Coryn done it before?

Gonna answer my own quiz in relation to Kingfisher

1- He can escape pretty easily
2- They don't have any. Can't have any, being pretty much supermen and women
3- I don't know dammit haha
4- Jeez I have no idea. Probably someone famous though
5- Yes. Fishers who specialize in cuisine do exist, although they are more spice-based cooks than exotic animal hunters (rifts have no biological material)
6- Rex has got to block it or he has problems
7- It wouldn't be odd, dimension hopping, but he wouldn't be that successful. There isn't much of an art scene in my universe. Everything is very utilitarian, just between a dystopia and functioning society.
8- I haven't thought about it, but English seems wrong.
9- No
10 - Yes. They're the backbone of all cities' economies

Day 2

Deep cover in an African-American ghetto sounded dubious to me at first. Anything to do with finding leads into how drugs came in on the streets was always a pipe dream, so I wasn't surprised when after the first five years of writing reports and insinuating myself in the scene the checkbacks between my handler in Langley became fewer and fewer, and when 9/11 came around not even I was paying attention to the safe box with all my agency information.

Katrina pretty much wiped out the rest of whatever information they had on me, I suppose, and my Country was too busy fighting another war.

I've been the enemy of communists, capitalists and the deep state in the same life time. I've both identified with and loathed the people I've come to learn to live with, and I've gotten a taste of the life of crime, even with my safe box.



At 65 years old, chugging a beer on the couch and watching baseball I got a call.

"We have one last job for you, Agent Carmichael. Then we're terminating your contract."

"I understand. Who's the target?" 

I wasn't even mad.

I got my service revolver, went out, found the drug dealer they'd suddenly developed an interest in and plugged him in the head and chest. I was surprised at how easy it'd been, considering I hadn't fired a gun in the past decade. The Revolver I put back in my safebox, which I let sink in a nearby river before circling back home.



The next morning I accepted my award.

"For 30 years you've been the pillar and support of our community and school here, Principal Reggie Carmichael. Thank you."

Amidst the cheers, I smiled and felt that at last, the life I'd managed to build in this little corner of the universe was finally my real life. That I really was the loveable but strict  Reggie Carmichael, divorced but still doing his best. I existed again.

I've just learnt that such a school exists and I've never wanted to watch an anime about bartending so bad till now.

Wherever he learnt it's definitely German though. I imagine the loads of etiquette and geography he's supposed to learn, like learning to be a sommelier on steroids.


Also: I know dieties have fleshy bits but do all gods have livers? Do they get hangovers?

I sort of wanted Dionysus to be in the story as well: Either he's trying to find a way to finally get drunk, or he's a manager for the whole business and what-not

So my writing dropped to zero after pulling out of the writing survival thing. I think I'm coming to terms with the simple necessity of doing something every day if you want to be OK at it. Here's to hitting a week again!

Day 1


Samson was a bartender of the gods, and the gods did doth drink when they had to.  He had the easier side of business though, his brother, Talisman had to actually find the alcohol and run the distillery. Last week, he had to literally travel to the fields of Elysium to steal hops from the gardens. Almost got caught in the process.

Here, all he had to do was mix drinks, speak every language known to man and non-man, and put on a winning smile and personality.

He loved it though. Usually. Today it was the Vikings, and while Vikings were satisfied with any relatively alcoholic brew, he had to prepare to repair the bar after they smashed it. It was tradition at this point.

Dodging an axe that came flying towards his head, Samson poured a specially ordered cocktail for a particularly beautiful looking Valkyrie and sighed. It was going to be a long night.
