Planning for stories and stuff.
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.
The link leads to the fan comic in my portfolio. If there isn't a link, there isn't a comic yet.

Also, if you want to find posts that feature a specific character, type in the URL http://theotaku.com/worlds/variousinformation/tags/[character name]. For example, http://theotaku.com/worlds/variousinformation/tags/dare will bring you to posts about Dare. :)
Enjoy Your Stay at Various Planning!
Idk why the *u* face has been my smiley of choice, lately, but I have indeed been using it a lot in my posts and things. It just kind of happened...;;; ~*~STARS IN MY EYES~*~
I'm really behind in posting my tumblr doodles to theO, but I will post them all!! (Sorry to those of you who follow my tumblr and have already seen them;;; I do this not just so the people not following my tumblr see my sketches, but also so I can add longer footnotes/commentary on my sketches. BECAUSE. I LOVE TALKING ABOUT MY OCS;;;)
For now, have some Noland sketches from this past school year, and a new character that's part of the Nerdy and Jock crew.
I wrote that Noland doesn't like many sweets, but I think it actually goes like this: He tells people he doesn't care much for sweets, but if offered a dessert, he'll always eat it. *¬*
Stefan honestly does dislike sweets, though. I LOVE SWEETS, SO IDK HOW THIS IS EVEN POSSIBLE, BUT...
My mom also dislikes sweets. I've mentioned before, but I use my mom as reference for a lot of Stefan things... >3>;;;
If I ever get around to doing anything with Teach Me Something Good, there's this one scene or series of scenes or something where Chrys invites Noland to an amusement park and stuff goes down there. I'd really like working on Teach Me Something Good because I think it'd actually be a pretty interesting story/comic/idk what... but yeah, I just don't really feel like I can take the time to draw/write it, yet.
Some random Noland. I was trying to get a handle on his body type. I STILL STRUGGLE SO HARD, BRO... ""orz Consistency is not my strong point. :D;
This was supposed to be like some chapter cover illustration, or something. Maybe I just wanted to draw Noland in a bowtie. I. Don't. Know.... >3>;
I've briefly mentioned the scene where Noland gets asked on a date by a fellow teacher. That fellow teacher is, indeed, Prue. :V This is another scene thing that I'd like to draw/write, if I wasn't hilariously lazy. -u-b
Another chapter cover illustration thing. This pic is also kind of spoilers that I haven't mentioned, yet. I don't want to reveal to much about this, because the ending-ish part of Teach Me Something Good can come off as very "I wanted this to be unnecessarily dramatic hoo hoo look at this story"...;;; I've considered taking out this part so many times... and I still might, idk yet. "orz
(Btw, Teach Me Something Good ends around the time that Chrystal graduates, but Noland and Prue's story continues for years after TMSG.)
The title-word-stuff comes from this band from the 50's called Nolan Strong and the Diablos. :^D I only know about them because I googled Noland Strong this one time...
Also spoilers of the same nature as the previous pic, but yeah. I'mma just leave this here... :V;;;
LASTLY, here's a pic of the new character: Ned's best friend, Charlotte! 8D;
And I'm too lazy to come up with new commentary on this, so I'mma copy and paste this up, yo. >:V
So, uh. Ned has a best friend, and this is her. I feel like I haven’t designed a character like this since 2009, or something. xD MULTIPLE BELTS. CRAZY PANTS. LOTS OF BRACELETS. HAIR OVER THE EYE!!!!
Anyway, yeah. This is Ned’s best friend since 6th grade, and her name’s Charlotte Han. She’s some sort of voice of reason to Ned’s crazy hyper fool thing. Maybe.
I’m so bad at “scene” fashion, but I kind of think it’s pretty cool looking. Tacky, for sure, but SOMETIMES, YOU JUST DIG THE TACKY.
THAT'S ALL FOR NOW! Thanks for viewing, as always~~~ ;3;
Here's some stuff from the past couple week or two! :M
Prue and Nolandddd. :V They're fun to draw together. I'll make a big long post about their relationship, eventually.
I imagine Noland has like 7 pillows on his bed and uses all of them when he goes to sleep.
Some drawing of me. I was explaining to someone how I kind of choose clothes based on my characters... >3>;;;
THE SADDEST NOLAND DOODLE IN EXISTENCE!! I wasn't feeling sad at all when I drew this; I just wanted to draw a really sad crying face. xD; Noland's supposed to be around 22 here, but idk if he actually looks any younger than how I normally draw him;;;
I was listening to this when I drew this. I listen to a lot of Daughter when I draw Noland. :V;;; THIS IS STILL YOUR FAULT, KASA...
I feel like I had a reason for drawing the doodle on the top where Gabe's being a clingy idiot, but I can't remember what it was. RANDOM COMIC, WOO HOO!
Felt like drawing Noland in some outfit he'd never actually wear. RED PANTS!
Some cranky Stefan. Boo yah.
Nerdy and Jock sketches. ONE THING I REALLY LIKE ABOUT THIS GROUP is that they're all high school school kids (which is something I haven't focused on since A Life Like This), but there's no real "high school drama". Idk, I was never really into high school drama fiction like Degrassi or Glee or other things... but I do kind of like Disney Channel high school shows, like Good Luck Charlie and ANT Farm, because they're just really fun! xD So idk I guess this is like my Disney Channel boys love with swearing.
And since it's summer, have a bathing suit pic! 8D These are some friends' and my Fire Emblem OCs. My OC Wybert is the one in the hilarious old fashioned one piece...........;;;
MORE COMICS OF THESE FOOLS... sorry if you're not enjoying these as much as I am. I've been having a lot of fun drawing them. xD I haven't had a set of characters that I feel okay coming up with random stuff on the fly with in a while. These guys are giving me so much ~*~freedom~*~ (????)
First, here's some drawing I did of them to give you a little more info on their characters:
Ned swears a lot because THAT'S JUST WHAT HIGH SCHOOLERS DO, GOSH MOM.
Ed Sheeran Lookalike (not pictured) swears the most, though.
Jack's usually really chill around his friends; half-chill, half-blushing-idiot around Ned; and occasionally a fretting mess around his Cornrow Ponytail broski.
I'll come up with names for Ed Sheeran Lookalike and Cornrow Ponytail eventually.... I'm thinking "Dmitri" for E-S-L. :m
Anyway, comics. They're traditional this time, sorry.
NED'S MELLLLLTING. So this one happens after that party thing from the previous post. Ned and Jack are chilling in a hammock in Jack's backyard. Jack was saying he wanted to dance with Ned tonight, but Ned was too busy dancing with the beautiful Jessica Marron. And Ned feels the guilt.
What follows is a beautiful slow dance scene that I will not post or draw because GOSH DANG IT IT'S EMBARRASSING.
Ned's really bad at being a nerd, because he's actually an idiot who doesn't do his homework.
Jack's actually doing alright. I mean. He does his homework, so...
Moral: do your homework.
What a great story you are telling, Jack! Tell me more about this cashier.
Are you not aroused by a shirtless Ned.
All my comments sound really deadpan right now, but that's because I'm actually really embarrassed by all of these but WANT TO SHARE THEM WITH YOU ANYWAY. """orz
~Ed Sheeran Lookalike and Cornrow Ponytail return...~ Jack hangs out with those two the most, besides Ned. By the way, Cornrow Ponytail has a girlfriend, and E-S-L has a crush on Jessica Marron from the last post. (I mean SHHHH WHAT...)
Jack's usually not irresponsible about drinking and doesn't get drunk too easily. BUT WHEN HE DOES... Idk, he becomes whatever he is here.
I'm weirdly attached to Jack here, though. Maybe I just like drawing jock kids as little giggling idiots.
Also, I have only had one real instance of interaction with one drunk person, so... I'm not really a pro at portraying drunkenness at all..................
Last one for nowwww. :D It's basically like the first comic I posted of them.;;;;
The first time Ned calls Jack "Baby," Jack's not sure exactly how he should feel about it. Eventually, he warms up to it and thinks it's kind of cute.
Ned usually calls him Jack, though, especially when he's talking about something important/being sincere/idk. :V
Alright, there we go.
Happy Sundayyyy? 8D
I made some comics with Ned and Jack. I feel compelled to call their "series" Nerdy and Jock, because I CAN SO THERE.
ANYWAY, HERE WE GO! Also, there's more swearing than I usually put in comics, because idk, I guess that's how high school kids talk. SORRY ABOUT THAT...
This one's from before they start dating, I guess. IS NED'S BUTT EVEN CUTE? HOW DO YOU DRAW GOOD BUTTS....
Jack and his friends. Dude on the left is going to be a recurring character, I think, but idk about the dude on the right. Also, Jack's hair makes no sense when he's facing the right. "orz HAIR IS WEIRD...
This is sort of the continuation of the comic from the first post. PARTY TIME, WOO. Idk, underage drinking is weird for me to draw. "orz
Still partaying it up. And Jack is a big baby.
There's supposed to be some dialogue before this where Redhead Chick asks Ned to dance, but I haven't drawn that yet. :V
The redhead girl is "the hot chick" from the dream I had that Ned and Jack came from. xD; She actually looked nothing like that in the dream, but her dream-self was too ridiculous, so I had to tame her down. I might re-draw her later, though, because I didn't really think too hard about her design here. For unknown reasons, I've decided to name her Jessica Marron.
SO YEAH, THAT'S THE COMICS YOU GET FOR NOW. Maybe you liked them. Maybe you didn't. Either way, I thank thee for viewing.
I had this dream last night where my little sister showed me a music video. In the video, there were these two high school kids at a party at someone's house. One was this kind of nerdy skinny guy, the other was this kind of cool jock guy. In the video, this "hot chick" approaches NerdGeek, and asks him to dance. The rest of the video was a montage of Nerd Geek having a great time parting with Hot Chick, while Jock Guy stared at him enviously.
The twist at the end of the video was when everyone left the party, Jock Guy takes Nerd Geek's hand and walk off together revealing that he and Nerd Geek were boyfriends the WHOLE TIME.
BOYS LOVE. Even in my dreams. xD;;;
SO SINCE THAT HAPPENED, I decided to draw this random Nerd-Jock couple! :D Their high school juniors, and I'm calling them Ned and Jack. Because of obvious reasons......
(Because Ned sounds like Nerd, and Jack sounds like Jock. Okay.)
Nerd kid is basically Justin Russo from Wizards of Waverly Place with hipster glasses slapped on. BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT HE LOOKED LIKE IN MY DREAM, OKAY... I also am unfamiliar with drawing braces. :V;;;
I didn't really remember what Jock dude looked like in my dream, so I just kind of made it up... I was looking at refs, but I lost them all and they didn't really look like how he came out, anyway. xD;
ANYWAY, I KIND OF LIKE THESE HIGH SCHOOL KIDS... I might make more little comics with them, but I don't plan on making a full-out serious story for them. :V NO HIGH SCHOOL DRAMA STORY FOR MEEEE~
So, uh, there you go. Enjoy this random BL, maybe. :D;;;;
