(oops!)★ Mai and what would be her choice in modern clothing?
Bohemian! Mahiri, likes to be comfortable. She’s loves to look laid back even though she’s dressed up. Shawls and scarves are her favorite things. In modern times she’d prefer skirts probably. Loose and flowy not clinging to her skin.
Amao’s goals are actually a bit foggy to those within the story(ies). And it’s actually brought up a few times. Amao has actually done A LOT within his life.
He served on his family’s farm for 10 years, fought in two wars (one being a civil war and the other being against the Bogarin.) After the last war he turned to become a scholar/mage in hopes of living a life of peace. After doing that for a few years he set off on his own.
He’s traversed the Qalqian lands and Urani lands to learn more about magic and cultures. At the point he and Yesenia meet he’s still wondering around and learning what he can.
Amao is a big mystery to everyone. No one knows what the hell he wants and he pops in out at very convenient times. Always knowing more than everyone else on a situation. Amao himself says he just wants to learn. He’s always very vague which drives Yesenia mad.
Simply his goal in life to learn more about the world and the events going on around him. He’ll stalk a situation and eye from the shadows or in plain view if he wishes to. He’s not really on anyone’s side either. Having broken his ties to Qalqia after the last war. He has no sense of patriotism. He belongs to himself and does what he must to please his curiosities.
Amao quest for knowledge often puts him in a situation where he must choose a side. He will always go with the side that gets him what he wants or want to know. So he’ll come off as an ally one day and a enemy the next.
Amao’s goal to know and experience all that he can will never die out. During the wars he was put in situations where he didn’t know the full story and his actions haunt him till this day. He never wants to be that ignorant again. This fuels his motivation for knowledge. Amao will always be one step ahead of everyone else.
So working on Yesenia’s world/characters etc. Thinking her dad might not be a Nyn, well not one in the original sense I thought of them. Actually I’m returning to my original idea that people can be infused with magic and become Nyn.
Yesenia’s papa originally was named Nohtil (now No’a), he was a soldier in the Theymesian army. ———— Now I’m thinking he’s something called the Anu’shikar.
Anu’shikar: were originally the soldiers who fought in the Syri-Theymesian war. Their king (no name yet) was later to be revealed as a necromancer. He lied to his people and made them believe Theymesia simply wanted to overthrow him as they had rough relations prior.
However his reveal came too late as he already damned his soldiers to a fate they could not undo. They became, the living dead. Forced to survive on souls and blood/flesh for the rest of their lives. They were damned to live eternally serving their king however the king himself was killed by his own soldiers under No’a’s command as the king had not yet learned how to control his new minions.The entire spell was beyond his skill. They hoped that the curse would lift but the damage was done.
While the Anu’shikar may look completely human their hands have darkened to black, a sign of necromancy. The have clawed hands and the natural shifting ability of male Syri men, has been corrupted and looks more monstrous to it’s normal counterparts.
The Anu’shikar no longer can perform normal magic. Necromancy is the only their only ability. Their ties to nature have been severed permanently.
———— Many Anu live in close proximity to one another or they chose isolation. Nohtil was one of the brave who wanted to return to his home. He was met with disgust and curiosity. Many know it was not his choice to turn to Necromancy. No’a is often used as a guinea pig to test magic against the dark arts. Considering he can not die he and many like him are considered perfect training dummies.
No’a constantly tries to reconnect with nature hoping he can return to his old life. ————-
So in short, Yesenia’s papa is basically a zombie vampire thing and the Nyn are essentially an essence that can fuse with both humans/darakarr or animals. Turning them into a new being called a Nyn.
In my attempts to retain a balanced and interesting internet presence, I have found that I am going to have to be able to streamline my posting so that I can update all of the outlets at the same time (Behance, Facebook, Twitter, Website) and still use Tumblr as my same…
Yup and yup. Like I said. I’ll just post my things still but if you want anything more I’d suggest checking out my blog. I’ve always said WAY more about my work on there anyway. I guess I felt more safe to talk about whats going on in my head as I’m drawing there than on tumblr. Say the wrong thing here and you gotta apologize and shizz. Just saw someone blow up over a misunderstanding publicly without contacting the other person involved. Now people think that person is untrustworthy. Even though they cleared it up it’s still spreading like wildfire and that’s the stuff I’m talking about.
If you’re a person who post and shuts up, you’re more than likely not gonna catch issues however you DO miss out on meeting and connecting. However you HAVE to censor yourself. As a person who writes and wants to tackle certain subjects within her work this is really staggering. I can’t talk about rape, abuse, mental issues with my characters because it’s triggering or someone may not like how I’m going about it. Which is fine but the thing with tumblr is, people can’t simply dislike something. They have to explain why they don’t like it and then somehow it’s a stain on YOUR character for producing such things. They reblog, other people see it, they get mad and now you have a mob on your tail. I’ve probably revealed like…..1% of what actually goes down in Mai’s story alone, because of this.
I made a separate blog with Yesenia’s story and I even find myself censoring there too. I tried not to but I’m like fuck it. Not worth the trouble.
Sitting on this site watching and reading people’s opinions a multitude of things has finally gotten to me. I can’t be as engaged as I was with this site.
I’ll post what I do because I have a bunch of friends here and I don’t want to just abandoned them, ya know? But anything further…not foreseeing it in the future as of now. I’ll post what I deem is proper for tumblr.
Tumblr does feel like a home but it’s a home without a corner to retreat to. You can’t get anything off your chest without someone catching a fit. Everything is being taken soooo seriously all the time.
I have a Wix blog which is pretty fun, you can keep a link to yours on here and just blog there then return to tumblr every so often? :3
Yeah in my early days of tumblr all my post were blog post from my blogger. I probably will revert back to copying and pasting what I do over there onto here. It’s just sitting here and looking at this damn website all day, I can’t really take it anymore. It USED to be very inspirational to me. And I have to admit I’ve had the most success communicating with artist through this site. So I’m not leaving but I am going to limit my time on here significantly.
I’ve never been on a blogging site that I felt I have to censor myself so much also. Tumblr isn’t safe, you can voice your opinion as long as it’s the right opinion and quite frankly I’m just tired of seeing opinions overall. Good or bad, I’m just at a point I want ppl to stfu and draw. I follow art and fashion blogs yet I see so much shit that has nothing to do with what I signed up for. Now don’t get me wrong, everyone is entitled to their opinions but thats all that this site has become. A Cesspool of just people bitching left and right. People don’t know how to discuss, all they do is point fingers and whine and moan. Oh and it’s even more annoying when a blogger’s fans come into the mix.
Tumblr is becoming DA all over to me. It’s just not fun anymore.
The only thing I can think of is to just post my work and gtfo. Don’t linger or anything. Post and go. It’s sad that I feel like the only way for me to function is to be away from people. I’ve met so many great people yet i wish there was somewhere else.
I thought of creating a forum to talk about stories and stuff BUT I’m no where near popular enough for something like that to happen.
So I’mma just go back to my little corner on the internet until I can think of something better.
I miss old school blogging platforms….. I seriously been thinking of going back to Blogger/ Wordpress.
Tumblr, as of late, I just want to escape it. I know we have SERIOUS problems in our world but sometimes you don’t want to be reminded about how people hate your race, and how shitty the world is every fucking day. I’ve actually blocked reblogs as a whole. But by doing that, I miss out on funny things etc.
It’s so draining…
Tumblr Savior can only block so much.
I hate the old blogs platforms because I SERIOUSLY feel like I’m talking to myself but at the same time it doesn’t make me wanna go sulk in the corner.
I want to be social. I like talking to people but I don’t know. What do?
I was bored last night yet in a writing mood. lavahanje suggested I write Iivari and Kaseem interacting so I did! Writing I figured is probably the best way you guys are going to learn of my characters. So if you are curious about them be prepared to read. I’ll mostly do quick scenes and character building studies. Interactions and what not. I’m always open for suggestions on scenes! The more I write the better I’ll get. So don’t be afraid to ask or suggest things. I’ll even try NSFW stuff O_o…. yeah I said it. Like I said the more I write the better I’ll get, lol.
I’m going to tell you the difference between them.
