Planning for stories and stuff.
Word, dawg.

This is a world I made mostly for my own use, but I made it a public world anyways. I'll be posting things about story outlines, my characters, my comics (including fan comics), WIPs, ect... It's pretty much a world where I can store information and/or plan things. xD

Below are short descriptions of my stories to help you know what's going on. xD It also shows which characters are in which story, along with their extended profile if I have one made. Some stories aren't mentioned because I don't work on/think about them often. Therefore, not all of my characters are mentioned.

Random Stefan Talk

I'm not sure this'll be interesting to you guys, but oh well. xD;

Just now, I've noticed a recent change in Stefan's speech patterns.
I was reading a comic I wrote last year and was kind of PERTURBED by Stefan's dialogue. Well, not perturbed. More like confused. BUT I TOOK THE S.A.T. TODAY, SO... Actually, I hated the vocabulary section. I'M SO BAD WITH VOCAB! ;0;
Anyways, Stefan's dialogue was really weird! o___o In the comic, I mean. Let me list two strangeo-mabobs...

1) HE'S CALLING GABE "GABE"! THIS IS REALLY WEIRD! Stefan never calls him Gabe... well, almost never. Stef almost always calls him "Gabriel", for whatever reason. (In general, he does this with everyone. He calls Jo "Janet", and Danny "Daniel"... No real reason for it, but it's what he does. It's possibly an attempt to distance himself from other people by not using nicknames... or he just likes talking in lots of syllables. |D)
Sometimes Stefan will call Gabe "Gabe", but that's pretty much only when he's exceptionally drunk, or has a lot of words coming out of his mouth making "Gabe" roll off the tongue easier. (The latter isn't really easy to portray in comics. xD) Although Stefan is drunk in that old comic, I don't think I had him intentionally call Gabe by his nickname. Even when he's drunk, Stef is more likely to use the name "Gabriel" over "Gabe".
/a lot of talk about NOTHING.

2) WEIRDO SLANG...! Look at this! "Sucked", "cut the act"... Actually, "cut the act" isn't that bad. I'll let it slide. BUT "SUCKED"...! I can't even imagine him saying that... xD It's not a bad word or anything (because Stefan's not opposed to swearing), it's just... a weird slang term that I can't imagine in his mouth. It's like him saying "that's wicked" or... idk. xD;;

Basically, his speech seems more casual than it is now. I think it miiight be because of this.
THAT'S RIGHT. Learning how to draw suits has made Stefan more up-tight. xD;;; Actually, that's partially why I had never bothered to learn how to draw suits after I designed Stefan... because then I would want to draw ties, and then Stef would look more official, and then he'd become more up-tight! 8D; Haha. He used to be more ostentatious with his gestures. I think it was because he used to look kind of showoff-y for always having his shirt partially unbuttoned. (?)
But maybe it's my imagination. xD I think Stefan's just gradually become more of a prude over time. :M;; But he's fun.

By the way, I wonder if any of you noticed that some time this year I started drawing Stefan's hair differently?
IT'S TRUE!

...okay, so it's not that much of a difference. But it made drawing him a lot easier! 8D; I initially didn't want to change the way i drew his hair (like how I didn't want to learn to draw suits)... mostly because of stubbornness, but also because it kind of makes him look younger or something. I-I DRAW MY CHARACTERS TOO CUTESY... Somehow, separating the bangs from the rest of the hair = cutesy. Idk.

WOW, RANDOM TALK! I'M SURE THAT WAS INTERESTING! 8D But not really.
Um. Yeah, thanks for reading! xD; I wonder if any of you actually find it fun to read me talking to myself about my characters. But I do like comparing them with how they were and how they are now. :D

30 Day Character Meme: Gabe

Over the last month, I've been doing this 30-day character meme with Gabe. :V Now that it's finished, I guess I'll post it here! Why not. It's kind of ridiculously long, and kind of random... but whatever. xD ENLIGHTEN YOURSELF ON THE ...

Your Lesson On Tim

Okay, titles... yeahhh... I never know. |D

Anyways, I can't believe I never showed this to you guys!

External Image

I had my theO username on there, so I must've intended to put it up in this world... o_o
Here's where his old profile is located: [click]
And here's a (not very) brief summary of how Tim's stayed the same or changed since I first made him:

Same
*Pretty much his appearance. I just couldn't draw him that well before... xD I've been drawing his standard blue tartan shirt since WAAAAY BACK. xD (And by way back, I mean 2 years ago. -u-)
*He's still cowardly, but not in the same sense that I had originally intended. I first wanted him to be like "wimpy-cowardly" like... idk, maybe as in he couldn't handle blood-and-gore/fights/heights/etc. In that sense, he's completely different because Current Tim is a bit of a thrill seeker and loves roller coasters. :D SOMETHING YOU MAY'VE NEVER KNOWN...
But anyways, he's still cowardly in the way that he doesn't assert his own opinions, and doesn't stand up for others even if he thinks he should. I guess that's more passive, than cowardly...
*Tim is still easily persuaded by others! Yes indeedy. But it's different because I originally meant for it to be he believed in what other people told him, but now it's more like he gets talked into "believing" something even if he's not to consensus with himself on the subject. (I'm not sure if I just used the word consensus correctly or not...)

Different
*"Very Dense" and "A Moron"... HEHE... no. xD; I think Tim is one of the least dense of my characters. He's pretty sharp, and easily picks up quirks and thought processes of others. (Which is kind of hard for me to portray... xD) Also, while both Dare and Tim are pretty smart about analyzing people, I think Tim has the upper hand on Dare because Tim can usually tell when someone has a crush on him or is crushing on someone, while Dare tends to be pretty oblivious to romance. (NO ONE CARES, AKIOH... Well, I guess you have to care a little bit to be reading this. xD)
*Backstory, whoa! I think Tim is one of the few characters whose "backstory" is actually his main story. xD; Like with Rick, meeting Dare in 4th grade isn't his whole story, and his "crisis" in 9th grade isn't his whole story either. (Idk, Rick's storyline is probably going to be the most romance-oriented out of the three of them.)
But yeah. Tim's story revolves around conflicts with his mom regarding his birth, and being "popular" with Jake and Clair (Clair for a lesser amount of time because he does eventually break up with her). I'm thinking I should put most of the romantic-y things/scenes/whatever with Tim and Rick into Rick's storyline/perspective in A Life Like This. Of course, it'll be present in Tim's storyline as well; but probably more prominently in Rick's. Well, when he finds out Tim is bi, at least. Before that, I guess it's up to Tim.
/talking too long
*LAID-BACK-NESS... Uh. Well when I first made Tim, he was really kind of hyperactive like Dare. (I-I THINK THIS HAPPENS A LOT... because Rick was like this, too. xDD) Eventually, he became a pretty chill dude. :V I mean, he does get riled up often. But he tends to be very casual about things. I think I've mention before that he has a kind of dry, sarcastic sense of humor.
*I also mention in the meme that he's pretty angsty and cynical. I don't normally like angsty characters that much, but MEH... It's Tim! I think Tim has reason enough. The "angstyness" is mostly seen in moments regarding his mom or social status or if he thinks about his dad that he's never met. BY THE WAY, I'm kind of always secretly freaking about about Tim's social status because I come from a fairly affluent family... so it's really hard for me to empathize because I don't know of anyone who lives in a similar situation to Tim, nor have I witnessed such situations. I'm always scared of exaggerating things. ;3; Which I probably do.
Anyways, what was I taking about... Oh yeah, his cynicalness. The cynicalness is usually only in his thoughts, and it's usually directed toward his classmates where he mentally criticizes them for their superficiality/naivety. In that sense, Tim is a little arrogant because he thinks of himself as smarter than a lot of his classmates. But he also thinks it's really pathetic of him to degrade his classmates to make him feel better about himself.

YEAH, LOTS OF RANDOM TIM STUFF! All of this should probably be in his character profile, but it's not. xDD Oh well.

Thanks for reading this giant text of texty stuff! :M Hopefully it was interesting enough. xDD Tim is one of my favorites, but I just don't draw him often because I can't think of any good pictures for him... >u> Haha. Actually, I am working on one of him and Clair. (?!?!)
I'll finish that soon. It's looking pretty alright so far. ;o But there's no background. xD; AS USUAL...

THIS POST IS FINITE! As in, it ends. Right now.

Yeah, Memes!

I did a meme. FUN. Well, I did two, but I only had to draw for one of them. I'll post them both.

External Image
The only detailed panel is the last one. I'm so sorry. orz Gabe's skin color came out kind of weird here.
MAN, I NEED TO DRAW SOMEONE ELSE.
AAAAAAAAAAAGH.
I have longer footnotes on dA, but I don't feel like copying and pasting them here. xD The link on the pic leads to the meme on dA, if you care about reading footnotes for some reason.

External Image
I've actually only heard the last two from someone. This is more like a lookalike meme to me, than a "fantard" meme. xD;
So yeah. We have Danny >> Christian Siriano, Gabe >> Mark McGrath, Jo >> P!nk, and Kasey >> Nicki Minaj. YAY, CELEBRITIES...;;; Well, Christian Siriano is a designer.
Nicki Minaj looks kind of gyaru........ but maybe it's just the light hair and tan skin. xD;

YEAH!
Also, I don't think I'm going to be able to finish the summertime OFAV picture. ;~; Sorry about that. I'm also moving soon, so I won't be able to use the desktop with SAI on it for a while.

Thanks for reading, as always! :D

More Doodles and a Comic Sketch

ALL I EVER POST ARE DOOODLES!!!!! Which I suppose is the point of this world... xD I need to come up with better titles for these posts, though.

Here's some random things, now. :U

External Image
I felt like doodling those number fellows. When I multiply 4 and 8, I always think of it as some sort of friendly interaction between siblings, or something... xD; While when I multiply 3 and 6, I feel like 6 is always forcing 3 to do something for her. I-I DON'T KNOW, THAT'S... JUST WHAT I IMAGINE, SOMEHOW...
I also think 5 secretly has a thing for 4. ;D (????????) Oh. 0's dialogue isn't supposed to make sense.

External Image
I was thinking to myself one day, "What does Gabe's hair look like without hairspray...?"
Apparently, like this.

Lastly, here's a random comic I drew in a notebook. It's kind of old... from spring break. xD; Yeah. Also, it's Stefan and Gabe, which I'm sure you're sick of. B-BUT, it's kind of anti-"Stef x Gabe", if that's any consolation. :m

I was too lazy to type the text, so if you can't read anything just tell me. :>

The shadow makes no sense. IDK.
That's all. Bwaaaaah. :M I need to read Wuthering Heights... orz And Macbeth. SUMMER HOMEWORK!
