This WIP doesn’t get enough love! I am really intrigued with the world setting and the characters, though I admit I still have a hard time figuring out who is who on the team. Of course, it’s not a big issue, so I hope to see more content soon! It is very well-written.
As for who caught my interest–Trouble. I have a weakness for childhood friend tropes and him being an RO just adds more to it. The MC I play is no-nonsense but soft-hearted deep down and the dynamic she can have with not just him is something that I am keen to explore and find out more about. Plus, I live for the drama.
Also speaking of which, the MC is the youngest person to ever become a captain. May I ask at what age it happened? Unless it’s already mentioned somewhere and I missed it.
*I remember we got to pick Trouble’s gender in this special, but perhaps you might want to change it to B, since Trouble doesn’t appear? As for me, B defaulted to male (although I believe there was one instance where their pronouns were they/them).
*I checked with all the girls, and Trouble uses he/him pronouns when he responds to your accusations of them
*I just realized Eight is missing ahhh
Alright! Well I have to give a lot of credit to Model Citizens: Unmasked’s blog (known as thenickelportrust on tumblr)! Most of the blogs usually answer asks that are about lore or character/RO reactions to an MC’s actions/behavior, and as for the reactions, they usually have the same format.
Ask: How would the ROs react if they came home after a trip/work to the MC sleeping in their bed, wearing (or holding) an article of their clothing? (*many of these are hypothetical scenarios!)
B: would combust [answer]
Zero: would also combust [answer]
and so on~
But MC:U’s blog is where I, at least, first saw In-Character Asks! Every week, Rena holds a poll for which character the followers want to ask questions about. After the results from the poll come in (you decide how long the poll is open of course), for a certain amount of time afterwards, people can send in asks directed towards a specific character, and you’d answer as if you are that character. Rena doesn’t only do main characters either - if you can do this without spoiling Hunter’s Sacrifice, you can include side characters! (One of the ROs’ pets, Trixie, had her own in-character ask session and it was personally one of my faves )
I’m not sure if it originated elsewhere, but I also first saw Fun Fact Friday on MC:U’s blog. Basically every Friday, you could give fun facts about a particular character(s)! There’re other alliterations that I see on other WIP blogs too, such as Fluff Friday.
And if you want to keep us updated with where you’re at in writing HS, you can let us know there too! Really there’s a variety of things you can do on Tumblr, and I’m sure you’ll come up with things you want to do if you decide to create one for HS
Hunter’s Sacrifice and Raven’s Flight have a tumblr now.
You are greatly invited to drop by and say hi, ask some questions and share your thoughts on the plot and the characters. I will be also posting about writing progress (and maybe some worldbuilding), so you can see what exactly is happening with the story.
Thanks for your encouragement! Hope to see you soon
