Yeah at the very least the name Malhare has some more creative thought put into it. Honestly a good handful of those prediction names are merely superior to the laziness of just “Glitchtrap”. Booooooo.
I honestly want them to bring Ballora back at some point. She’s like the only one that didn’t get any treatment in HW, and I truly think she deserved better. I mean maybe I’m biased, since she’s my favorite of the Circus line (if UM was any indication).
Yeah that’s a bit annoying, and I’m pretty sure it was only done just so they could bring back Kellen’s voice. Nonetheless I’m fine with the Molten Freddy we got, despite its faults and all, but I still hope Ballora gets some justice maybe somewhere down the line.
The Glamrocks are all colourful and fun I guess but honestly I want to see the finalised in-game models. Vanny is atrocious, maybe like Scraptrap it'll grow on me but I pray Vanny won't actually look like that in SB.
Me too honestly. While I like art and stuff, with FNaF they usually can’t compare to the actual models. Also the art looks like it was made by Fizsi, which is a bad start-
For designs themselves, I’m honestly pretty mixed. They have style, I’ll give them credit on that regard, but maybe I’m just outgrowing the designs of these characters. I don’t feel all that interested looking at them, and they feel more like OCs to me. Then again though that’s the art, and the models could look way better (current fanmade models are underwhelming). But even then I don’t feel too confident with them being good enemies. But I have a little hope, so we’ll see how that plays out exactly.
I’m just glad Vanny’s not the driven into the ground design of a goth bitch with rainbow hair and shredded clothes. It’s refreshing almost, but still underwhelming. Though I’m curious, I don’t hear you complaining about designs that often (at least I don’t think), so what makes this Vanny atrocious in your eyes-
Where to start, firstly while I understand your feelings on the 'driven into the ground' design I personally really liked the uniqueness of that design and really this design Funko pumped out is the antithesis of that design. It's literally just another Spring Bonnie costume but white and I despise that on so many levels. I get that Vanny has Afton's presence in her head but she should stand out from him and this horrid design just reinforces the notion she's just William 2.0 which is not a good look for this game.
Design wise I'm not overly fond of this hourglass figure in fact I really don't like that hourglass figure for most of the animatronics. There's something just inherently superior to the chonky FNAF 1 designs especially for Freddy who as a bear would be more physically wide anyway #bringbackthebarreltorsos. But the hourglass figure and the bunny boobs just make it look like someone got Ballora's model and edited it with bunny features. It's tackiness to the nth degree.
In short character-wise and design-wise this figure is the height of lazy
Hmm, you do raise some good points there. Especially now that you mention her basically being William Number Two with the design, which is a bit of a bad start, yeah. And yeah skin tight suit sets me off a bit as well, kind of too furry-like for me-
But hey wow someone else likes that about the FNaF1 designs, yay-
Chica and Freddy are chonky girls and bois, miss me with that hourglass crap. I'll kind of let it go though as the square shoulder pads and angular designs of the Glamrocks is a really good fit for the Glamrock aesthetic of the 80s.
Yeah, it’s almost a little sad. With Night’s server thriving as much as it is, it’s almost like the end of an era for this wiki. Many people have dwindled their activity or flat out left because of it. I would’ve too, and I’ve been wanting to leave for quite some time now, but I really only come back so we can talk here. It’s like my last resort to really existing in this place.
Something about a user called "LolbitLover" who's pretending to be someone lese under another account, a user called "Waveprotogen221" is being harassed for (at least from what I can tell) no reason (mainly by a user called "Chickenoodles3", who was also being homophobic), etc.
I'm telling all the Discussion monitors because I hope I'll catch someone who's on and can sort this out. Besides, it might take a team effort to deal with everything.
I think there needs to be a staff position specifically for dealing with discussions because it seems that people just assume they can do whatever they want when issues have to be reported to be noticed by staff. Others have agreed with me.
Otherwise, we'll just have to wait for forum retirement because then staff members will have to focus on discussions
If you're the one who just deleted his replies: Thanks, though I don't think that just doing that will stop him. I think you have to make your presence in the discussions clear enough so he'll be forced to pay attention. He keeps coming in and bugging us again and again.
I know I could move this to discord, but I would like to continue having these little messages here for the sake of it (even though nobody can really barge in on us if it's just a DM). Plus, keep me on the wiki for at least a little bit of something, as you know.
So, with the arrival of Night’s server, I made the rash idea that we, as the Safe Room, should transition over to his server. Afterall, it basically has all the same users, channel, and more, and is essentially everything I wanted when it came down to the SR. Night did what I couldn’t, and I’m proud of him for that. So, I thought it would be a good idea for us to do some kind of merge/transition thing, so there wouldn’t be two servers that basically have the same things, only with one being better than the other.
But, uh oh, I accidentally tore us apart. The other SR members didn’t seem too fond of the idea, with very few of them willing to move on at first. But somehow it got really extreme, almost to the point of fighting, and nobody can agree on anything. We’re stressing each other out, inflicting pain on one another, and I can safely say every one of us just wants this to end. And we still haven’t resolved this whole thing, so when we do eventually pick this issue back up, I fear it’ll bring out the ugly again.
Hey I just though I'd tell, and we're still talking about your stories so keep your head on. The Puppet Mother may be garbage as a theory but as a plot point in a story it's fantastic and at this point given I can't locate any craps to give about canon I value fun storytelling over what's canon compliant.
Actually I would like to make the argument that "Puppet Mother" is not what It's Been So Long was about in the first place. You've heard me say it before, but what you didn't hear me say before was the evidence to back this claim (I'm going to refer to the characters as Mikey and Allison from here on out for the sake of simplicity).
Sure, there's one line that says it won't be long before Allison becomes a puppet, but that does not in of itself automatically mean she becomes the Puppet animatronic. Since the song never specifies what puppet she becomes, it's open to interpretation. She could be a puppet to her emotions, her guilt, all that sad stuff. The fact that it could sound like she becomes the puppet character though could be an intentional reference to the character of the same name in the game. It wouldn't be the first time TLT has referenced something in the game without it directly meaning that thing ("Shocking, ain't it," "I hope you die in a fire," etc.).
Now that may not seem like much, but it doesn't hold a candle to what suggests otherwise. Something TLT has always made important with their FNaF songs (except for the first and fourth I guess) is the significance with the music video. It's Been So Long, Die in a Fire, and I Can't Fix You all have videos that tie into their specific song: they're connected. That said, there's enough information backed by the video to show that Allison does not become Puppet.
Let's talk about this video. We see right at the beginning that Mikey runs away to Freddy's while Allison is on the phone. Then, when the song cuts to the chorus after showing some shots of Mikey enjoying his time there, we see a scene showing Allison outside the pizzeria, confused as to where Mikey is. It then resumes to showing Mikey enjoying time at Freddy's, before he is ultimately murdered by Purple Guy. The Puppet stuffs the four main children, and then Freddy ends up stuffing Mikey into Golden Freddy (at least, the viewer knows that's what is going to happen).
So let's step back, now that we know what happens in this video, shall we? We know this all happens in the span of only a day, since nobody is ever shown leaving, and it would be illogical to assume Mikey would somehow stay overnight. Therefore, there could have been no way for Allison to have become Puppet, since it shows up in the same day we know she's alive on. Plus, the video shows the Puppet floating around the bodies of the dead children, including Mikey's. If Allison were the Puppet, this this would contradict with the literal title of the song, which implies she has not seen her son in a long time, even though she would have just seen his dead body as Puppet. See, doesn't line up.
But that's just the video, which could be disregarded if you were to merely listen to the song. So how about the lyrics themselves? Well, they too aren't very nice towards this idea of Puppet Mother either.
Let's turn to the main line of the song itself. "It's been so long since the last I've seen my son lost to this monster to the man behind the slaughter." There's a lot to be said from this alone, actually. This shows there's a time gap from when this song is being sung compared to when Mikey disappeared, since you wouldn't say "it's been so long" if... well, it hasn't been that long. This shows that Allison is still alive days after Mikey has disappeared when she's singing, and not dead possessing the Puppet. This is further shown by her addressing in the lyrics of "it lingers in my mind," "since you've been gone," and some others, which would not make logical sense for her to say if a few days had not gone by. But this is especially obvious with everyone's favorite "man behind the slaughter line," since it shows that she knows there was some kind of killer. Since she is never shown to have gone to the pizzeria Mikey ran to, she wouldn't know there was some kind of killing until afterward when the news would speak of this. And since this is all on a different day from when Puppet appears Mikey gets stuffed, the pieces don't line up, meaning Allison cannot be Puppet.
To conclude, TLT never intended on the mother becoming the Puppet, as this does not line up with the information provided in the lyrics and music video. It was all just false information spread from misunderstandings in the general audience. And wow, I can't believe I took something as ridiculous as this and made a statement on it.
Actually you're onto something there, now that I think about it there is no direct visual confirmation from the music video that the mother goes on to become the Puppet and the lyrics can be interpreted in other less literal ways than her literally possessing the Puppet.
Yes indeed he did. But, I was actually going to build off on that scene in another secret, which got cut due to me running out of time. So, since I missed my chance, I figured I would tell you about that now.
So, before we get to the scene that wasn’t added, I’m going to cover what happens in between them, which I might’ve also included if I had the time.
So, the secret spells out that Ann goes back into the house to grab a Foxy plush... but nothing becomes of it. It just rolls to the edge of the carpet as she drops dead, and is never heard from again. But it wasn’t always going to be that way.
What was going to happen was that Michael was actually going to sneak into the house to see what was happening, curious as to what would be holding Ann back from returning to the car so they could drive away. He would see what happened to his mother, seeing William sobbing over her body. This of course breaks his heart, since as you pointed out in an earlier piece he is indeed a mother’s boy. But seeing how William seemingly killed her, now he knows he absolutely has to get away. He’s able to grab the Foxy plush without William noticing as he keeps sobbing, and gets back to the car to drive off. Sammy and Liz ask him about where there mother is, and all he can respond with is how she’ll join them later.
So that’s what happened after that, but I was going to go further than that, and add a scene that would’ve cover what would’ve happened after Ann’s funeral.
The secret would’ve started with the Aftons driving home in silence as it begins to rain. After arriving home, Sammy and Liz run to their rooms, with Michael intending to do so as well. However, before he can head upstairs, William stops him from going anywhere. Turns out that he noticed the Foxy plush had disappeared, knowing Michael would be the only one sneaky enough to receive it. Furious that Michael knows what really happened, they share a cold exchange, where William demands that Michael does not speak of this to anyone, coining a line I’ve had in mind for a year: “I love those little ones, but I WILL kill you if I have to.” Knowing he has no power, Michael complies, and avoids getting choked to death... or something like that, I didn’t settle on anything yet.
This would’ve touched upon a few other things. We know that Ann’s death is what leads William to kill kids, but what about Michael? Well, this is where his hatred for Sammy would come from. He’s plagued by thoughts from this incident (“if you had entered sooner, maybe she would still be alive,” stuff like that), and is unable to lift the blame from himself. This makes him extremely bitter, and he comes to the conclusion that he has to somehow put the blame on someone else from him to feel better. And if Ann died only because she went back to retrieve a Foxy plush, who better to blame than the one who owns it? If Sammy hadn’t left it behind, she wouldn’t have to go back for it, and therefore wouldn’t have been killed. So he puts the blame on Sammy, and begins to torture him for being the reason their mother isn’t with them anymore. This would also be why Michael beheads the Foxy plush, since it held some responsibility for her death as well.
Now, is this all still canon? Probably, but a little well more thought out. Again, I would’ve included this all if I hadn’t run out of time, and I came pretty close to finishing it too. But yeah, that’s what was going to happen.
Fuck, that really gives new context into the family dynamic. Interestingly you beat Squimpus with this heated and quite hateful relationship William has with his son though in your case it's Sammy and that's so tragic. Just picturing this small teary eyed boy whose father views him as the murderer of their mother just because he can't accept the fact that title belongs to him. It really ups the despicable factor of William's character and makes me feel for Michael and Sammy so much more.
Well yeah technically I came first, even though I didn't post any of this until afterwards. But yeah I did beat them out in that regard, haha.
But yeah, I feel bad for doing it to the poor kid yet at the same time it's an interesting approach. Doing this has definitely propelled him further up my favorites list, and he may appear when I draw my six favorites from UM (yes I decided to do that). And yep, William's still an awful person here. Different in a few ways, but yeah he's a very bad man. Plus, gotta keep making you feel bad for the Afton kids somehow-
Oh, shit I always forget that detail. Unfortunately no it is not. The original drawing of this is actually a secret from First Night, where it shows a drawing Charlotte has made of her and the other children, hence why she labels herself as “me”. I decided to take that and expand it a little more, adding the other dead kids from the universe and drawing them all in better detail.
Hm. Well the characters whose names remain unchanged from the actual series come from that, obviously (Charlotte and Michael Brooks, who’s not actually on here).
Marissa, if you remember, is the main driving factor of the original UM. She’s Mike and Mary’s daughter, and her disappearance is what eventually leads Mike to take the job there. I thought Marissa would be a fitting name, given it sounds similar to Mary. It just felt natural.
Ricky just felt like an appropriate name for his personality, he’s kind of the hot shot guy who wants to date Marissa in the future (he’s the friend mentioned in Before the Party, by the way). Also there are these siblings at my school that I don’t really care about named Marissa and Ricki, so that was just an extra reason to use that name in particular.
Susan and Joey just fall into the hole of “a name just came to mind and I went with it”. Yes Susan came before Susie, being created in the summer of 2017.
Whitney is a little different since he’s the kid who becomes Mangle in UM. I wanted to have some fun at first, and keep the whole theme of confusing genders, hence why I gave him a genderfluid name. He also used to look pretty different, to where maybe he could be either gender. Time went by though and I eventually settled on him being a little boy, so I embraced that and made him look a little more like one, keeping some subtle nods to his original feminine appearance.
I’d put Elizabeth with the characters who come from the game section, but as I’ve talked about various times I called her that before FFPS came out, simply because she looked like an Elizabeth. Same case with Sammy, he looked like one, so I called him that.
Jimmy is simple. I came up with him when I still didn’t have a very good grasp on how big serious UM was going to be, and I knew he would be friends with Sammy, so I just picked out a name similar enough to his (having them both end in ‘-mmy’) and rolled with it.
Contrary to possible belief, Marissa’s appearance was not influenced by Susie’s or Elizabeth’s. I first came up with a design for her somewhere in early 2016, and her appearance just felt natural given that I made Mike blonde, with her eyes being blue for the same reason. I’m not sure why I gave her a bow in her hair, though perhaps it was for the intention of Mike finding it there in the safe room (which he didn’t, as it was swapped out for Mary’s picture of Foxy, but I liked the bow so I kept it). For the attire I usually draw her in, pink looked nice against the blonde hair and red bow, with blue shorts to finish the blend. Heart pattern on the chest because... I dunno, it was cute, or to emphasize that she’s a good person.
The rest of the main children don’t have that much to say about their designs, I mostly just thought of something and just went with it. Ricky’s hair started as being just brown, but it gradually became more red over time. This angered me since I hate the trope of the children looking like the characters they become (since Ricky is Foxy), but I kept it just so there’d be better variety, since Susan was also a brunette. Speaking of, I did put some thought into Susan having glasses, based on Nightmare Chica having a blind eye. And Joey... eh I don’t really have anything to say about him. Just popped into my head and boom, that’s what he looks like.
Charlotte was mostly based on her sprites in FFPS and novel design, with Sammy and Elizabeth similarly based on their in-game designs. To keep Sammy’s signature hair curl, I made his hair overall a little more curly, and made his eyes blue because of his sprite’s tears, and also because it was logical with Michael and William having blue eyes. Elizabeth was changed a little more though so she wouldn’t look exactly like Marissa though, so I made her hair a little more wavy and less blonde (will be more obvious in the UM Calendar render).
As I already described a little, Whitney’s gist at first was to look like either gender, before leaning in more on him being a boy. His hair is red as a callback to Foxy’s original color (since he possesses Mangle), with him having freckles just for him to be cute. And since his whole thing is that he’s a special needs child, I gave him some leg braces like Forrest Gump.
Like I already said before Jimmy wasn’t put together nearly as thoughtfully as some of the others. He possesses RXQ? Boom, black hair, though it started out as just really dark brown. Maybe it still is that way, I don’t know. Not like it’s really that important.
And although Mikey isn’t on here, might as well acknowledge him. I’m glad UCN played right into my hands and made The One look basically what I designed Mikey as, blonde with blue eyes. Don’t know why I made him blonde, but the blue eyes were in reference to his shirt in It’s Been So Long, before I fully incorporated it in Yellow.
It's really nice to see someone make fully fleshed out human origins for characters like Mangle and RXQ. Those two don't usually get such treatement so that's a nice change of pace from the usual main 5 maybe 6. Also like the touch of the Balloons, very poignant. Okay I think that's everything I wanted to ask about the picture.
Shame most of them really don’t get much time in the stories outside of being dead. Marissa and Ricky claimed Before the Party, and Sammy and Liz have made their rounds before, but the others seemingly only exist to be dead. It’s a shame, because I kind of thought of semi-personalities for them all, yet never get to use them. I mean I guess there’s not much to any of the others though, nothing too deserving of their own story. Except maybe Whitney though, being a special kid. He’s also the only one on the picture who hasn’t appeared in a story, not even mentioned. Maybe I can come up with a way to make him relevant, even if for a short amount of time.
Speaking of relevancy, if I find a relevant opportunity to post the original drawing of this on discord, I’ll do so and let you see it. Nothing much, but hey content is content.
So... Fallen was not an easy story to write. I was going into it after three stories that were overall more fun and relatively easy to write, and now suddenly I had to write a rich, wondrous story with emotional beats. Not the best transition, and so I had some trouble capturing the moments I wanted. And at the time I was also quite unmotivated and distracted, so for the first week or two I was stuck procrastinating. But I knew I had to finish it, for one it’d be a good exercise of trying emotional stories, and would bring some closure to William and Ann. So something had to be done for me to capture the feelings I wanted.
In comes band, and A Heart to Treasure was our final piece to our concert. After hearing it a few times, I began to notice something special in it. When I would listen, suddenly I could perfectly visualize the story I wanted to tell. I could see that sky, the red, pink, and orange among the clouds as two lovers stared into the distance. The grand musical swell, the rise of emotion, and the descent back to softness. Everything came together swimmingly, all because that one song fit the criteria I was searching for. So I plugged in that song and began typing with it. And already, there was a shift, as the writing process became that much easier. Hell it even helped out a bit with William and his words. The mellow part right around the middle seemed to really help with his reminiscing.
By the time I had finished the story, I had only the song to thank. If I hadn’t listened to it earlier, I probably wouldn’t have finished in time, or even finished it at all.
So why was it in the teaser? Well, for one, it was for people to find and listen to, so maybe they could have a similar experience to me when I was writing it. But also to show I had nothing to hide, and that this song that helped me was all I have to show. There are no secrets, only the truth. There was nothing else.
So that’s the story. I have yet to thank my band director for indirectly saving Fallen, which I will get across to her as soon as possible.
Music truly is a Godsend, food for the soul almost. I sometime literally can't even look at something I'm writing without the aid of some music in the background. Not just any music either, music chosen specifically to help the story along. I'm really glad A Heart to Treasure provided you with that special nugget that helped Fallen click together and visualise the story so intensely. It's truly a magical thing when something external propels the writing forwards, makes the whole writing process seem so much less of a painful chore and for me at least it reminds me why I fell in love with writing. There's an electrifying sensation to that moment where there's music guiding something you write and it all falls into place like some divine hand is gently guiding yours across the paper or across the keyboard. Another close alternative to music for me has always been going on a walk into some forestry or just something scening. Just lying down on the grass watching a purple or red sunset was one of the best memories I have and even though my early writing is poultry compared to now the actual process of writing that stuff was totally worthwhile.
Yep, always love help wherever it may come from. And truthfully, music really is the key to the soul sometimes. It's a grand sensation, and can pack so many things in so many different ways. Like a song I heard from my childhood says, I can't say where it comes from, but just there it is. Magically, and I'm truly grateful for that.
Yeah, I’d imagine if anyone were to ask “Who’s that” it’d definitely be about her. For one Abby really only made an appearance in Playtime, which not many people read (along with some hidden secrets in other stories, but barely anyone finds those), but also because she’s not really based on a pre-existing FNaF character. All the others it’s pretty clear who they are or what role they play, and then you just have this little girl. So yeah she’s one of the more obscure characters from that picture, but I still love her.
But what exactly do you want in it? I know I've tossed around the idea of a "Catch up on UM!" thing, but I don't know what exactly should be done to it. Like, do we need to go as far to recap some stories as a whole, focus mainly on the characters, or what-
Seems reachable. How deep do you want to go into each of the stories, and do you want me to include information from hidden secrets? Do you want the first original UM story included in this too? And how much do we want to know about the characters?
Okee-day, I can do that. Hell if I want to I could start right now, so maybe I will.
Also, that reminds me. Back when I released Fallen, I was going to make a document similar to that "SN Origins" one I sent you, since Fallen could've been... way fucking different if I released it two years ago. I imagine you'd like me to make that at some point too, yes?
Yeah, it does. I myself have a soft spot for the original pixels, sprites and all that, but by no means do the 3D models look bad, quite the contrary. However I have gone on record saying that I like how the Let’s Go games look better, which I’m not sure how other people see. Maybe that’s just the Gen 1 baby in me just treasuring that original region.
The Let's Go games do have the same sort of vibe as the anime (I mean of course they do one's a remake of Pokemon Yellow) and are far more linear and contained than the main series. They're a very different experience and I like that when a franchise gives a new experience.
Yeah, I like when a series is able to properly change up the usual formula and provide a different yet similar experience. Let's Go did that just fine for me, having the regular charm as an ordinary Pokemon game, but adding the new catching mechanic and more activities with your partner Pokemon. These changes aren't bad, and in fact make the game more fun and unique, so I applaud that. All around I really like those games.
And yeah, I kinda forgot Yellow followed the games as much as they did. Embarrassingly, I forget Jessie and James appeared in them, so though it was enough of a surprise seeing them as 3D models, it was an ectra surprise for me seeing them in the first place.
Yeah Ash kinda blows. But I'm still able to root for him as he's not the worst character in the world, and honestly his chemistry with Brock and Misty is really fun (I'm not familiar with the not-Kanto seasons). Red's much more badass and the silent hero type is always one I like (unless we're talking Pokémon Origins where he can actually speak, but that's just as good), and yeah Ash has quite the ways to go to be as good as him, but he's still fun.
Similarly, I also think Gary's a really fun character. A good counterpart of Blue, and honestly I think he's my mom's favorite character sometimes. Hell I went as him for Halloween once, so yeah Oak Jr. is quite the charmer.
Speaking of Oak Jr Professor Oak and Delia's friendship despite all the shipping jokes is quite a wholesome detail as it essentially makes the very start of the series when you pick your first Pokemon in Red and Blue feel almost familial. I really do like how casual the format of the franchise is with pure exploration and discovery of new Pokemon. Don't get me wrong I love that the franchise got more story-orientated in later generations but those early roots I think are what solidified the franchise. Plus as the creator Satoshi Tajiri I've read could be aspergic I also feel a notable kinship with him and the franchise he created.
I truly do believe that those who are aspergic come up with some of the greatest things, and I admire that quite a bit, so that's another special factor for him and his series, yep. And yeah Professor Oak and Delia is pretty cute, from what I can remember at least. Nice to get that dash of that material mixed into the show.
Cool. Hmmm... would it be too hard to name at least ten Pokémon (without looking any up)? I'd like to see which ones would end up picked. If you can, try excluding the Pikachu line and the Kanto starters since you've mentioned them earlier, but you can include them if you can't think of any others.
Hey, you did well. I'm proud, and that's a lot of Gen 1 which pleases silly me. I should give you lessons, that could be fun. Unless you don't want that, haha, I understand that that stuff may not be the best to remember.
Honestly, him just being alive. But at the same time my idea was that when he "dies" from the scoop, it would allow his body not to age anymore, allowing him to basically be eighteen for the rest of his life. But that really doesn't make sense, and also that was early UM stuff, and I have the balls to change it now if I wanted to. Back then I might've been too attached to it to really care.
And I’m not really here for that, lore is not my shtick. My goofy-ass visual timeline is one thing, but actually solving stuff, yeah no. But trying to find a solution to that in of itself doesn’t really seem like something to worry about that much in the long haul... I don’t know.
Yeah making FNAF AUs is super fun. I've made outlines for both the games and novels. The games I'd only really just tweak the existing story but the novels? Holy shit ctrl alt delete that fucker and start from scratch.
I do like your reimagined novel story, yeah. Honestly all that bugs me is that the first story in yours isn’t one based on FNaF1, since personally I find that to be a better way to kickstart a series. But I know and see how sometimes one has to make sacrifices to make a better story, so it’s not that bad of a problem.
Yeah I did think about that but honestly I wanted to keep the plot element of the Funtimes being powered by the MCI kids and Book 1 would reveal this to still be the case and Charlie would learn of her brother and friends needing spiritual release at Freddy's which would organically lead into Book 2. I decided to completely embrace the AU nature here, the books should've done their own thing completely irrespective of the games. They are not bound by the need to be an adaptation like say the movie will be which must be based on FNAF 1.
I've read up all the lore and story of KH and I feel like I've learnt a whole lot yet nothing. FNAF lore is vague but KH is like if FNAF lore was on drugs because it doesn't even pretend to make sense. Retcons and ignoring established details for days.
What's the best way to sum up what it's about? Sora and friends travel through Disney worlds and whatever else they can shove into this crossover fanfiction-esque nightmare to defeat the evil Master Xenohart or whatever incarnation he's in. Best part, the story's not even done yet. Nomura the creator/writer is basically Japanese Scott but with zero chill.
Despite my verbal lambasting I actually really enjoy the series becuase it's stupidly brilliant in it's brilliant stupidity. It has charm and something very endearing at its core. Likeable characters, great music, cool gameplay and the fact that if you acknowledge the story is on drugs it's a fun ride redeem it for me. It's what FNAF could be if Scott just stopped with leading us on and just accepted what an incoherent trainwreck the story of the franchise is.
Well Jengus Christler, sounds like a lot to handle. If it’s an insane idea in of itself then I can’t imagine what it’s like to have a wack story. I must admit I do like insane energy too, especially when done right, but yeah that seems like a bit much.
It's honestly not that hard to follow, it's a battle of light and darkness with Disney and Square Enix characters along with Nomura's OCs. If you accept the fact the story is nuts it's honestly a lot of fun, I think my acceptence and relationship with stories like FNAF really helped me enjoy KH where most other people are instantly turned off.
Yeah it was admittedly pretty light on the background. I think I thought it would work for the feel, or that it would be to mimic fading text. Whatever though, I’m glad it was “enjoyable”. Should we rank it-
I mean, we don’t have to put it in general. The reason we separated SN and FN from general is due to them being too different from the others, so comparing them to general would be unfair. If you think IM is comparable to the big stories though then sure, we can find a place for it.
Poetry, helping a few other writers bounce ideas around for their stories kinda like the thing we've got going on. Really I'm just trying to relax, Wi-Fi has been giving me trouble but it's not beyond salvage.
I mean there's AngelicCreeper's impressively gigantic fictional universe I've had the honour and daunting task of having ideas bounced off me. Then there's a friend of mine Fanatic97 who wrote a rewrite of the novels called The Restless which has just been pure cathartic joy to read through. Then there's a friend from Uni called Lotte who is in the middle of writing something and we just work together bouncing books and written pieces and sources of inspiration off one another.
As for the cake, I don't think I'm much of a chef.
Might as well, I used to use that stuff years back and I'm pretty sure people thought I forgot to shower. So I went back to flowers and immediately some dude told me I smelled wonderful. Still kinda weirded out by that but it's a much better thing to hear.
Wasn’t creepy exactly but it was kind of weird. He was sitting next to me and then kinda slid his chair over while I was working. At first I thought he was looking at what I was doing, but then he said that whole “you smell great”. So that was a bit strange.
Yeah, true. It did kick off the UM Bits after all, so we wouldn't have had all those other stories without it, even if Chance Meeting was the one that actually got me to continue in the first place. So yeah, it's important alright, but I also just like its simplicity as a story, much how I like FNaF1. Nice little parallel there I guess.
I originally would stay up to do my drawings but I feel like my motivation is dwindling and I’m beginning to grow tired of doing it all the time. It’s not like I can stop though since I have things to do for the people in the server.
No it’s not me beating myself up, just the truth, though I guess I did exaggerate a bit. A good portion of my drawings have been for a grim universe that wields some graphic and unsettling imagery, with a larger portion being me portraying Pokémon as less cartoonish creatures and making them more animal-like. Not that’s not bad, it can just come off as surprising and unnerving sometimes. But yeah I guess I did leave out the good ol’ happy and cartoony pictures.
I’d like to, I want to make more Pokémon drawings and stuff from Purple, hell even some more memes about us wiki folk. But I also have a lot of requests, which honestly kind of disencourage me to work. Which sucks, because I’d like to roll out some content-
When I had less it was kind of a thing to get me to draw, like “hey I want to draw a Pokémon (or something) what should I do” but then I also started saying in the server stuff like “hey if you do this for me you get a free request” and then they’d give me something to make. But now they’ve kinda piled up as I’ve been working on things and I guess I hadn’t prepared for this.
No it's not, but I can see how you might think that. I went at this guy with the same method I use when interpreting Pokemon, which is where I'll find animals similar to the Pokemon and then mash them all together to make a creature baring some resemblance to the original Pokemon. Only this time, it's not a Pokemon: it's Jevil, everyone's favorite Deltarune boss.
For this, I put him together as a sort of spider monkey, fox, and bat hybrid. I thought it would be interesting to take the whole idea of "being free locked outside" to the level where Jevil is some creature that would sneak into Castle Town from the outside wild, and then would cause chaos among residents.
