Thank you! I’m still trying to find a perfect balance between writing enough for a reader to easily follow the story and not saying too much as to not give everything away. So, hearing you say you enjoy it + that it keeps you guessing = the best compliment I could ever get. Speculating is part of the fun, after all.
@VainCorsair And just when you think you caught them all … Thank you.
So, I won’t be only posting updates on fixed bugs & typos, I’ve decided to make a special list. A list of nicknames based on one’s traits, to be specific. Without further ado, here they are …
TEAM TITLES Zero: the Shy Strategist One: the Sarcasm Incarnate Two: the Questionable Enigma Three: the Supreme Realist Four: the Flirty Best Friend Five: the Super-dependable Crafter Six: the Secretive People Person Seven: the Heroic Younger Brother Eight: the Nonsensical Applicator of Ideas Nine: the Smiling Diplomat Ten: the Fighting Popsicle Eleven: the Obsessive Moral Compass Twelve: the Cheerful Tester of Theories Captain: the ??? Leader; also the (un)lucky 13
OTHERS B: the (Tries-to-be) Polite Napoleon Trouble: the Loving Troublemaker Raven: the Gracious President with suspicious Timing Unknown: Unknown
Okay!~ Ooh, are you able to share what you’re writing for NaNoWriMo?
Hmm, well I will have to wait and see as Raven’s quite mysterious… but I expected him to be reserved, and polite yet intimidating. The kind of person who can smile while he threatens you (lol) and keeps his cards close to his chest.
Ah, okay, I was wondering if it was just a regional difference in spelling!
aaahhhhhhh I’m looking forward to it XD
I actually enjoyed his way of speaking too, haha. Little character quirks are fun, and his own didn’t bother me at all ^-^
They’re well on their way!! I’m super excited to see more of them
seriously SO. EXCITED. Ooh, would we be able to get a side story of their reunion from Trouble’s POV? (By the way, I wouldn’t mind paying for it either, like if you released some side stories as special content on Patreon or another platform? Seraphinite is planning to do that for her series, The Wayhaven Chronicles, and I want to support her too!)
I guess I wasn’t clear enough, haha. I’ll be working on this lovely WIP. Wrapping up Raven’s talk and the like.
That sums up Raven pretty nicely. Raven might not be the best fighter there is, but this Chancellor certainly wields words like daggers.
Hah, that is good to hear. I was unsure if I overdid it.
I … didn’t even consider this option before. If there will be enough interest for it, I’ll definitely include it Side stories are always fun. I didn’t know Seraphinite is planning to do this! Hers will be an interesting read~
Can I just grant you the achievement of becoming the most relentless Typo Hunter? Thank you!
(Whoops, sorry) Ahh, okay! Yayyy, good luck!! I’m sure you’ll be able to progress even further with the story
Yes. Someone to watch out for, that’s for sure~
YES whoop >_< I hope people become as interested in Trouble as I am lol. Yup, she answered an ask about it on her tumblr! I don’t know what scenarios she plans on writing, but I do know one of them will be from UB’s POV (or is just N and/or F’s?..) when (if) the MC finds out UB are vampires and becomes scared/distrustful of them. Yay for angst!! XD
It’s no problem at all! I actually find it kind of fun? Ahaha
I updated character descriptions (both in the demo and here) to clarify certain personality traits of each individual. Let me know, if it is any help.
That would be nice. I hope eventually most of the main cast will become as interesting as Trouble is to you.
Maybe I need to get on tumblr …
Hello interest! I do appreciate your willingness to step forward. There’s nothing quite like a person telling you they are interested in reading more about your story and her characters. Is it okay to ask, who caught your attention?
Maybe I should just do a poll to see how readers feel about getting different takes on the story. Or would it be better to wait until the next update for you to get a better feel for the characters?
To be fair I could care less about Trouble I mean I wouldn’t mind them in the story but they just do interest me but ultimately it’s your story and if you think it will make the story better go for it.
I think mostly Trouble and Twelve, though Zero got me curious about them. I guess it’s because they seem like the most extroverted and I seem to be drawn to characters like that aka I have a type
And Zero just seems like a really sweet person? They’re nice
My apologies for the late reply. My answer won’t be particularly interesting, nor helpful, I’m afraid
My Captain (possible spoilers)
It’s somwhat hard to say right now as he is dealing with the super freaking sad death of Four, so his demeaner is likely more apathetic.
I would say that he is a compassionate and honest person who will do whatever he can to help others. Despite this, his face does tend to appear somewhat emotionless if one doesn’t know where to look. If one knows him, or is at the very least used to being around him, A’s feelings are usually pretty obvious; if the world was less…apocalyptic(?) he would wear his heart on his sleeve, so to speak.
Anyway, Cap A treats his team as equals and will dislike anyone behaving negatively towards them. He will abide by the rules and be polite to authority but regards the safety of others over anything else.
Sorry kirakana, I wasn’t entirely sure how to answer your question and I just kinda rambled
Anywhoo, loving the demo even though the beginning is heart-wrenching.
But in a good way! . You’re doing a great job and I’m super intrigued to see where this is going
