    I don't think I'd be able to participate in a single RP and you're doing a bunch of them xD

    I think Kiba was based more on a past version of me, if that makes sense. I'm known to evolve (pun kinda intended) as a person.

    As mentioned in the previous comment, any input is really fine. judging characters as a whole is good, though if you have any thoughts on individual characters I'd love to hear them.

    I'd like critique, good or bad.

    I still think you would do wonderfully in SacredFire/DivineWater, though I know you're already much too busy as it is.

    How's PTA anyways?

    You know, I think if the Julia&Kiba thing works, there could be a sweetened ending. How Kiba's character is set up goes perfectly with it. He'll be aiding her in completing the league no matter what. Though he doesn't yet know of her wish. He could explain to her that a mere wish wouldn't be enough; that she could repair those bonds herself. Or better yet, explain to her that some friends come and go, the best ones stick forever, and that (if they are together at the time in the RP while having this conversation) he plans on making her wish come true himself. I'm sure it sounds like a terribly cliched idea, but to me it sounds rather sweet. Maybe it causes her to go deep into thought, and decide either she doesn't need the wish or that she could wish for something else (to which might have a deeper meaning). You know, once this RP ends (I hope we'll be able to finish) we should have a very sweetened and settling ending.

    Any thoughts on that?


    __

    By the way, what do you really think of my characters, anyways? I mean, am I hitting too many cliches, doing things already done, not thinking things through enough? As I've mentioned, I do enjoy all sorts of feedback.

    Random fact! (Earth & Sky)
    I play myself as Ki the Lucario. I know it's somewhat of a bad thing to use yourself in an RP, but I thought it'd be fun to have a character of myself on the sidelines, behind a character I've created.

    Hmm, you know, I feel like literally all of our characters on Earth & Sky are mainly about self-improvement. Yes, that is pretty much the point of the RP itself, though the improvement I refer to is mental/emotional.

    Though, they all grow physically stronger too.

    So, to sum up their gimmicks:
    Lucy - Gluttonous, care-free sprit (+Maternal Instinct?)
    Hailey - Mainiacally chasing vengeance
    Arcea - Puts Hailey before herself and is pretty much a follower(?)
    Julia - Semi-feminine socialite who PWNs at battles, slightly naive

    Am I getting it right there?

    I'm honestly not entirely sure, I think that tomboy-ish vibe just came off to me. Of course, I might be insane myself, so it's probably just me. I guess it's that lack of super-femininity that I had mistaken. Or maybe it's the people I've seen growing up.

    Anyways, I have gimmicks for all of my characters (Limiting it to the ones I've made ever since I came on here.

    Kiyoko (PTA) - An innocent (and easily corrupted) mind of a pure youth Zorua.
    Kiba (E&S) - Loner-type, often downing himself or feeling isolated, though expressing his deeply powerful friendship with the Pokemon that connect with him. I've made him deep in many ways, poetically, mentally, I still haven't revealed his methods for 'catching' Pokemon. He's able to connect with Pokemon on a much higher level than normal trainers, as they were his only source of friendship for years. This can be reflected with the real-life situation in which a child feeling lonely can show love and compassion for a pet, like a cat or dog, but takes it to an extreme level; Kiba considers people and pokemon to be equals. He's open to nearly any form of conversation (starved of it, in fact) but he lacks any motivation or confidence to start one himself. He is deeply shut-in, having given up on human friendship, as well as love (well, up until now in the RP), feeling as if he were destined to live a life of isolation and loneliness forever, his only companionship being Pokemon.

    I suppose, in a way, this rooted from my own feelings in the past. Years ago, I used to have thoughts like "I'm going to be alone forever" or "Only animals will ever love me". I look back on it and feel, well, stupid. In a fit of self-pity I'd neglected to see that there are people that notice.

    Anyways, I've also made Kiba question deep thoughts on life. Is it fate, destiny, or are you carried by your decisions? What happens when you die? Do bodies have souls or spirits? Is it wrong to want? Should life be lived modestly, or taken for as big a ride as possible?

    Of course, these things will probably show later. Seeing as you have Julia planning to approach, it might happen fairly soon. Even if she rejects him but at least starts becoming friendly and conversing with him, you'll probably get a better taste of his mind, and probably a bit of the antisocial awkwardness of it all.

    I think he might be one of my deepest characters that I've ever made, honestly. That's why I'm excited to play through E&S. A small cast of loyal players makes it a semi-frequent posting rate and keeps us all close.

    Err, got off track there.

    Raven (MaxRide) - Overpowered, so much so that the power becomes semi-useless and backfires more often than not. Very tomboyish, the she still has a touch of her feminine side, sometimes. She isolates herself on purpose, because she fears that she'll kill someone she cares about by accident, because of her unruly and unstable power.
    Tsurara (SF/DW) - I honestly made him a douche intentionally. I haven't done so, and seeing from my track record, most of my characters are heroes, whether others know it or not. I'll probably have to make a totally evil character, so that I'm not following a streak; I love individuality, as I've said before, and the same goes for my characters. Anyways, Tsurara is sexist (more so than the era normally is) believing that men are superior in all ways. He's royalty, so he acts very valiant, though if it doesn't come off as noble and professional, it's going to be very snobby and annoying. Some will love him, some will hate his guts. I have something HUGE planned for him.
    Kitsuko (SF/DW) - I made her much like Kiyoko, though instead of the timid scared type, she's the bold, outgoing kind of innocent child. The one with an imagination that maybe runs too wild, and often causes her to create trouble. She doesn't think before she speaks, she's innocent but at the same time very playful and hyper. I think "Obnoxious" could fit somewhere in there too.

    I don't really have to explain Amethyst to you, I pretty much went over everything related to her with you.

    ... An input? (And apologies for a massive rant of a VM)

    Let me get this correct, as I've only recently taken note of it:

    For Pokemon Fallout:
    -One character is a kind and caring glutton
    -One is clinically insane

    For Earth&Sky:
    -Julia is a tomboyish girl somewhat ignorant to emotion-y things, risking her life for her goals?

    Trying to figure out the gimmick for each of your characters, though I'm probably failing miserably.

    Thank you. X3

    The reason I went was for a cousin's wedding which I was dragged into by my mother. I wanted to stay in Dallas because I literally have no memory of her from before. I felt so awkward seeing her at the rehearsal. I didn't even know it was her until someone came up and congratulated her. DX

About Me

  • About PkMnTrainer Yellow
    Biography
    I'm Marin, a dedicated roleplayer and gamer. I also arrange video game music in various styles (mostly 8 bit, SNES style, or orchestral) as a hobby. I was born with a crippling social-mental disability that pretty much caused a trainwreck of problems the moment I set foot in a public school. Luckily, I've since had the opportunity to get diagnosed and get the help I needed to... compensate for my limitations to some degree. Emphasis on the fact that I was never really cured in any sense of the word.

    Needless to say, I have quite the life story that has left me with a lot of... interesting quirks. I won't assume you want to hear about any of that, though. I have a natural fondness for the English language and have been told, and I wouldn't disagree with them, that I seem to have an abnormally high understanding of vocabulary.

    If you had to ask me, and I had to put all my modesty aside and answer in an objective manner though, I'd say my greatest strength is probably perseverance.

    I consider myself a very social person, and I'm all about love n' hugs and *cough*pwning noobs and stealing their lunch money*Clears throat* stuff like that. (...Some people aren't. o-o;)

Mini-Hack: How to get PC thread updates via RSS!


This guide is a neat little hacking trick to make Blogger send you RSS updates of your subscribed threads on PC. It's useful when you want instant updates in your RP threads, though I'm afraid there's no practical way to get updates of just RP threads without simply unsubscribing to any non-RP threads.
