Character Giveaway!

Posted 5 days, 7 hours ago by Scientist

I think this is the last of the characters I don't have a solid idea or place for! :o How exciting. I probably won't be making any more cast cuts until I really start going through and adding profile content rather than just making things look nice, so this will be the last giveaway for a while~

Click to visit their profile! They have extra art. 

Just comment on this bulletin if you're interested and I'll choose someone by the end of the day. :> 

You don't have to include any future plans or anything to be considered. Just post!

Do note that I'll be glancing at your current characters to see what you've done with them. If you have all your characters hidden or if all your character profiles are blank you will be less likely to be chosen. Sorry! ;u; I just don't want the design to rot somewhere else like it did here lol.

Edit: since I play co op with my fiance my gates are closed most of the time! ;u; if you wanna stop by or trade ping me on discord and i can open em for ya. Its Scientist#3627 <3

2 characters looking for a new home!

Posted 19 days, 6 hours ago by Scientist

Heya. I'm looking to get rid of these kiddos. If they don't go within a week or so I'll probably be giving them away somehow because I'm tired of looking at them and having no idea what to do with them ahaha. :'> If we're mutuals you can write for them! Just a small thing with your plans and such. Nothing too long.

  • I'm mostly looking for art or redesigns of characters here if I can't sell them outright. I can add usd to meet commission prices or for customs. 
  • I'm a little picky with art styles (I prefer semi realistic or anime styles, but can be swayed by some nice toony styles sometimes!) but please don't be afraid to offer!
  • Most designs have prices/values on their profiles at this point but if you don't see a price feel free to ask.
  • Please post your estimated turnaround time and what style/amount of art you're willing to draw when offering 
Thanks so much for looking! Hope you have a good day! ♥️

Hello! I have this boy here just collecting dust. :'> I had a plan for him when I traded for him but ended up filling that role with a different character/design in the end, so now I don't have any ideas! 

8350554_mW2vsjfVy.png?1573309278

Comment here on the bulletin if you're interested in taking him off my hands. I'll pick a new owner by the end of the day. :) No need to write anything, but if you want to include a sentence or two about what you plan on doing with him that's fine! Just nothing too long and keep in mind it's not required to be chosen. :'>

P.S. - I still have a few designs I'm looking to get rid of here. The characters there are subject to change as I find roles for some and decide to get rid of others that aren't listed there currently. :> Mostly looking for art or resales as I don't really have any other designs I need for my stories.

Thanks for looking! \n_n/

New year purge and all that!

Posted 2 months, 21 days ago by Scientist

Heya. :> Figured I might as well post a bulletin about this as well; I'm not feeling too attached to these designs and probably don't need them for my stories so I'm taking offers on them! Some I'd really like to be rid of (might have a giveaway in a while if they don't trade off soon) so please offer whatever you like! I can sell a few so ask if you're interested in just buying 'em outright, otherwise I'd be most interested in art since I'm not really looking to get any more designs. 

> > > Most likely gunna get rid of < < <

You can also offer on designs here, I'll just be pickier. 

Also my friend has stuff here

If you're interested in Immycat's stuff please ping her


  • I'm looking for art or redesigns of characters here. I can offer usd to make up the difference in price as well if you're interested in redesigning a character and want a lower priced design.
  • I'm a little picky with art styles (I prefer semi realistic or anime styles, but can be swayed by some nice toony styles sometimes!) but please don't be afraid to offer!
  • Most designs have prices/values on their profiles at this point but if you don't see a price feel free to ask.
  • Please post your estimated turnaround time and what style/amount of art you're willing to draw when offering 
  • Some are obviously more tentative than others.
Thanks so much for looking! Hope you have a good day! ♥️

Flattened folders or nested folders?

Posted 2 months, 24 days ago by Scientist

How would you prefer to see characters arranged?

0 Votes A coded navigation page that shows a few featured characters, a short plot summary and a link to more info to be found on the actual nested folder
1 Votes Flattened folders so you can see the full plot summary (collapsible) and all the characters all on one page
1 Votes A simple navigation page with small plot summaries and links to the folders (basically what it is now but with summaries)

Heya! I'm finally going to go through and clean up my character navigation page.   I don't think it's very helpful to just list the name of a plotline as a button and expect people to click on it based on the name alone and no actual info about that story so I've been meaning to redo it for a while lol.

Option 1: I thought about doing something like this but with "featured" characters, since that would allow for a summary as well as links to the most important characters. That would also allow me to keep the current layout for my folders (with themed backgrounds etc - you can see a "finished" one here) because I personally like the way they look when they're all on their own page (even with the inconvenience of clicking to look at them). The downside is that not all the characters would be visible and that it would kind of take forever to set up with the amount of plots and characters I have. 

Option 2: I also considered just doing flattened folders since it would accomplish the mostly the same thing, but then the separation of worlds and plots with subplots is kind of lost. I have two little stand alone stories that don't have anything to do with the world of the others and I like them being visually separated. I would also lose the ability to differentiate subplots (what I currently use flattened folders for) but it would be a lot easier to maintain and I could probably just merge those folders anyway. Subplot can be expanded upon easy enough on their profiles and in the actual writing so it doesn't bother me much to lose it. The real downside is that everything would just have one background so the folders wouldn't be as "themed" lol. 

Option 3: I guess I could leave it mostly the same and just add little mini plot summaries? :')

Anyway, I tossed up a poll to see what y'all like best. :> Help me out. 

Happy 2020! Any resolutions?

Posted 3 months, 4 days ago by Scientist

Do you have a new year's resolution?

3 Votes Yes!
0 Votes No!
0 Votes Maybe later...

A little bit early, but I figured I'd take the time to wish everyone happy holidays and a happy new year! Also I need a place to jot down my new year's resolutions so that they feel more "official" lol. While I'll keep my irl resolutions private, I will share a few online/creative resolutions here: 

1) I'm going to complete all of my character profile layouts. Not necessarily the content of them, since that comes with inspiration, but I at least want everything to look nice. So all the formatting will be done as well as all the aesthetics. My current goal is one profile per day until they're done. If I miss a day I have to make it up. 

2) No more buying or trading for designs I don't already have a character in mind for. For real this time lol. :'> I really need to focus on my stories instead of collecting designs ahaha. 

3) Once the profiles are done I plan on writing a certain amount for my personal writing projects every day. Probably going to set a 3-4 paragraph minimum, but can obviously write more if I'm inspired to do so. This also follows the rule of "if I miss a day I have to make it up". These may or may not be posted publicly. We'll see. 

Cheers! <3 Hope your new year is a great one!

What perspective do you like best in writing?

Posted 5 months, 8 days ago by Scientist

What perspective do you like best in writing?

1 Votes 1st person
2 Votes 2nd person (who are you omg)
4 Votes 3rd person that moves between "main" characters
2 Votes 3rd person that focuses on just one "main" character

Just got part three of my current writing project done ( yay! You can read it here if you fancy: https://toyhou.se/~literature/25978.tales-of-zenith-earth/3.the-ereon-chronciles-part-3 ) and it made me realize that I should probably settle on a perspective to write from. :'> I've been reading A Six of Crows (amazing book btw) and it's written in 3rd person but with changing character perspectives. IE, one chapter is written focusing on the thoughts and feelings of one character involved in the story and the next chapter picks up where the previous one left off but from the perspective of a different character from the group. The Witcher series does this a bit too, but it's not divided up by chapter so much as just sparsed in the story every once in a while. 

SO. My point being, do you like it when books change perspective like this every once in a while or do you prefer to just focus on one character for the entire duration or for the majority of the story? Do you like books written in 1st or 2nd person better (personally I'm a big third person fan, but there are a few books written in first person that I like)? Which of these do you like to write in? Let me know!
