aqualass: hey I was just about to log off.
cheydostudio: Lucky me then. (:
I wanted to ask you something.
But is it short because I have to do homeschool stuff?
cheydostudio: Oh, no worries. I think it’s pretty simple.
aqualass: Great. what is it?
cheydostudio: Remember when you told me your parents are scientists?
aqualass: That’s your question? heheh j/k Yeah I remember.
Do you need me to ask them to do some SCIENCE for you? ;)
cheydostudio: Haha, no science, thanks.
But I was wondering how they got posted to that island you guys live on.
It sounds like the kind of thing I want to do right now.
Or need to do. Ugh.
aqualass: i really dunno about that
How come your thinkign about this stuff?
cheydostudio: Sigh. No particular reason.
Well, not one that’s short.
aqualass: Sorry I can’t stay longer.
cheydostudio: That’s a good idea.
Maybe I can try to catch Wen online, too.
aqualass: heh, hopefully when ou do he’ll be in a good mood.
cheydostudio: Oh be nice. P:
I decided to make some changes to Delia and let Aronshy get closer to what she used to be, taking those elements from Delia that really cannot exist outside of whoever gets the island and its supernaturalness.
What helped was remembering that Delia’s username, cheydostudio, comes from her last name (Cheydo, derp) and the fact that she worked for her parents’ art studio. She was originally a commercial artist with a bit of a disgruntled side, but mostly cheerful and dependable.
One reason for this test-type post was to test out their personalities put into the new-ish situations. I don’t think they’ve changed a lot, but then, it’s been a while since I wrote any of them. The easiest was always Vivane, but I digress. Another reason to test was to see how the chats would look in a prose situation.
Writing it here in my blog, it feels too much like the chat pngs and prosies, since that’s what I was moving on to after the chat concluded. Even before I started testing a proper prose bit, it just felt like when I was doing things the way I did. Writing it all out with the understanding that I’d fire up Photoshop when the words were done.
That doesn’t feel right for some reason. If it looks the same, then who’s to say that I won’t just keep doing it the same minus graphics, and the prose will remain prosie and not extend to a real/full chapter?
Still have some work to do, I guess. It’s hard to just discount the chats aspect entirely. It also doesn’t strike me as a good idea to treat them like a phone conversation or the like in narrative.
I’m tired, but I can’t seem to find an opportunity to sleep.
