Got to writing
Hooray. Weekend was as I wanted. Can get into a stride now.
Been sort of bridging the gap between 24 and what was once 25 since the rejigging of planning. Hopefully should all work out now. Some pretty big story events in each chapter until the end now, rather than an almost side storied first chapter to the act. So expect something significant in every one of the roughly 5-6 chapters remaining.
Honestly, feeling the pressure a lot. So much to get right and to get in now. A foot wrong could be disastrous at this stage, so there is a whole ton of attention to detail. Hence the slowing of production on each chapter right now. That doesn’t mean I’m not working. On the contray, I’m working more than I used to.
So much work, want to wriiiite
Been working for many days straight plus working on an elongated job process application.
Dear god I want to write now plz.
Saturday hurry up.
I imagine they often ask you how big Murky or Protege or Brimstone are, so here's a more personal question.... how big are YOU? And yes, I mean down there.
Not much too personal about being a size 9 in shoes, is there?
Just went over and corrected stuff from Murk in this image, mostly for fun.
The pony he wants to be inside if he got proper food, treatment and a chance to open up more?
There’s a happy little thought to tide you all over. Good stuff, Lucid.
Heya Fuzzy! I was wondering: how did you come up with the creatures in the Outer Metro? Where they inspired by any movies or video games?
The short and boring answer is…nope! Nothing!
The original idea for them (which changed completely, I should note) was inspired by a nightmare I had long long ago that never really left me. I hesitate to say what it was because thet could still influence the current thing by making people think of it.
What really inspired me is more a concept. That of the unknown fear out there. Leaving just a few clues, distinctive sounds and traits. Speed and strength. Aftermaths. Enough to get your mind thinking and trying to picture it.
I can guarentee that whatever you thought of while reading was scarier than anything I could have typed out and described from my own imagination. Thats how I subscribe to horror, personally.
Quick Writing Update
Hey guys, thought I’d give you a wee update.
I’ve written about a quarter to a third (depending on latter content) of 24 by now. I’m going to be going over it after some discussions with the editors on its first 10% or so to tighten it up in a better way.
Been a few days off writing due to excessive working hours tiring me out for coming home and having to deal with applications for a few Games Industry positions that have sprung up. So naturally that took priority.
Just letting you know how the writings going and that it is progressing quite nicely.
I’d also like to extend another thank you to everyone who wrote in or send things for my birthday. That was utterly, unbelievably surprising to me, I didn’t expect it at all! I admit I was quite overwhelmed by it, so sorry if I didn’t respond personally to every “happy birthday!” there was. Suddenly all these people wishing it, my birthdays are normally very quiet things I tend to forget myself so…wow.
Now, on with the story.
THIS IS A NON-STORY POST
This may very well be the only time you will ever see a Non-story post on this page. Almost every other time we will have those on our ooc page
But this is an exception, as we have a very special message for one of our favorite writers on their special day
Happy Birthday Fuzzy
Possibly the most unique Birthday wish I’ve ever had. Thanks guys!
You know what I'm gonna say, aren't you? Well, I'll say it anyways! Happy birthday! .. so, what perk are you choosing for your IRL level up? ;)
Fixed Time Dilation - You have attained the mental ability to project time and its effects from sequential eras as a new reality around you. You may now get away with saying what age you are rather than what the calender says! Only be what you want!
Thanks for the well wishes!
Doodle/Prrof of Concept done while very tired.
Decided I should do a full Unity piece at some point. Decided that promise should be Fuzzy’s bday present.
EDIT: Apparently this also means he got my 150th Tumblr post.
Awww, she’s so cute. Unity has been one without much art, always nice to see her! Thanks a bunch, Lucid!
Sorry Fuzzy, nobody told me your birthday was coming up or I would have taken the time to make you something nice. I’m kinda slammed with both work and classes at the moment, so have a placeholder image and a lovely coupon good for one horse ass.
All joking aside, happy birthday man, hope its a good one.
Oh gods, I said I’d never post nsfw content yet here it is! Such scandalous content in the above picture and I can’t make it go away!
Really though, thanks Pencil! Don’t worry about not knowing, no-one knew until I think devart made it clear, I never really mention these things!
