I jut realized that I forgot to answer one of Zeta's questions. Anyway, the best emotion is happiness.
Master Of Chaos a écrit :Bandit Keith is very...Uh...Well, it's easy to see why...Er....Ah I got nothin.
Congrats Dreamer-San! Wait, this feels familiar...
1: What is your inspiration for writing?
2: How did you get into VN's?
3: Why did you make me a Tsundere in the crackfic you twisted evil puppy kicking no good two timing jerk!? I have no Tsundere traits ever and you know it! THAT IS THE TRUTH! WHY DO YOU HATE ME SO MUCH!? HUH!? WHY!? In your crackfic, the AAOers were genderflipped. What gave you this idea?
4: Can you name all of your RP characters off the top of your head?
5: Do you have an actual Attorney's Badge in RL?
6: How did you manage to get this much influence on AAO?
7: What is your favorite moment out of any Nasuverse work? You can just hint at it if you don't want to spoil.
I don't really know what this question could mean. Do you mean who inspired me to start writing, or how I get my inspiration? I'll just say that I don't really know where my inspiration comes from... If I had to answer, I guess I would say that it comes from experiencing new things. (Oh, and thanks for the congratulations)2.
It started off with a bunch of freeware VNs that probably ranged from "bad" to "decent", though I probably thought they were great back then. I don't remember any specific names, but I could probably find a few if I really wanted to. Anyway, it wasn't until someone recommended Yume Miru Kusuri to me that I really got into Visual Novels.3. You're doing it now. Obvious Tsundere.
I think everyone thinks about how things would be if their favorite characters were gender-flipped, and real life people get gender-flipped all the time in fiction. So, why not?4.
AAO, MAYBE, but I'd struggle a lot with it. All of them ever? No chance. I'm doing my best to forget some of my earlier RP characters, who were extremely shallow, but even without that, I'd probably forget a bunch of them. I don't have a super-memory.5.
By making everyone into my shadow-puppet.7.
That one scene in Fate/stay Night, HF route. More specifically, the one where the narration tries to make Kotomine sound threatening no matter what he does, to the point of somehow making him sound threatening just by ordering a second helping of mapo tofu. It's just so ridiculous that it works somehow even if it's funny when you think about it. That's the scene that always sticks out to me.

What's your favorite video game genre?
What's your favorite music? (I don't mind if it's video game music or just music.)
Do you play any Sims type of games?
Thank you, Ryuu. I'd say that my favorite video game genre is Strategy RPGs. Whether they're actually tactical or more about just overpowering the enemy ridiculously, I tend to be fond of them. My favorite music tends to come from video games... I seem to be extremely fond of music that plays at particularly poignant moments, though I also like listening to the opening music and credits music of games.
Drey Wilkins a écrit :Oh, congratulations GD!
You have my thanks, Drey.
S.S. Sleuth a écrit :Congrats GD. Have fun being ruler of the month of July. Be a fair and just ruler. Or abacus.
Thanks Sleuf. Your A-rank in staves will never be forgotten.
NihilisticNinja a écrit :Congrats GD.
Since your favorite type of character has already been asked... is there any particular character archetype that you heavily dislike or think is incredibly overused?
Thank you for the congratulations, NN. This is going to sound predictable, but I dislike "Modern Tsunderes". Allow me to clarify. Using the VNDB as a source, there are two kinds of "Tsundere" that people tend to be familiar with. A "Modern" one is that type that switches personalities about 10 times every five minutes, constantly switching between sweet and being a jerk. A "Classic Tsundere" is the type that starts off hostile or cold, but warms up and remains friendly. I don't mind the Classic kinds, but Modern ones are just... They can be written well (Especially if paired with a deadpan snarker) but most of the time I dislike them. If they have any personality beyond being a tsundere, I can probably like them. This goes for male characters as well as female characters.
$Fth a écrit :1) When you create a post in an RP, what are the main steps you take in the creation of the post?
2) What about steps in creating a character?
3) What are flaws you feel are prominent in your writing?
5) Who is/are your favorite RPer(s)?
6) Least favorite?
7) Favorite RPs?
Eight) Least favorite?
9) Favorite style of universe (post apocalyptic, high school hiding a deeper story, medieval fantasy, etc.)?
10) Least favorite?
I used to take it extremely slowly by just slowly writing things out, but lately I've been favoring shorter posts that I can write more quickly, especially since the active RPs I'm in tend to go by quickly. I usually listen to calm music when writing, preferably without lyrics so that I don't get distracted. With my longer posts, I take a very long time just slowly writing it while doing other things. With shorter posts, I try to get it done in one go, allowing only a few distractions. In both cases, I make sure to edit the posts. I've made plenty of silly mistakes in the past simply because I forgot to look over my posts...2.
I think about what kind of character I'd like to write. I often try character types I haven't written before, though there are a few character types that I really like writing as. I like to think about what kind of appearance would make sense for them... This is probably going to sound obvious, but I like to ask myself "Why would this character wear this?" and that tends to help a lot. I used to think that I NEEDED absurdly detailed backstories to create a good character, but I've been moving away from that thought process recently. A great backstory helps, but a lot of people get so caught up in writing a backstory that they forget about everything else, which has happened to me in the past.3.
Describing the appearance of... Anything. People, objects, anything. I've been trying to get better at it by following some guides, and while I think I've improved, it's still my weak spot.4.
Don't know if this really counts, but I'd consider my strength to be that I'm fairly reliable when it comes to posting in RPs. I do occasionally forget, but a quick PM to me should fix that. I also like to think that I do my best to be fairly helpful to people new to RPing, though I do occasionally worry that it might seem like I don't really care at all. Finally, I think that I can describe emotions fairly well.5.
ShadowEdgeworth and Truf are probably tied for that spot. They're both absolutely fantastic writers that I enjoy RPing with.6.
I don't really think I HAVE a least favorite. That probably sounds like it's dodging the question, but for an RPer to be my "least favorite", they'd have to show absolutely no spirit in RPing and show no desire to improve at all. I can't think of anyone on this site who matches that criteria.7.
Endless Time, Requiem, and Haruhism. The Dangan Ronpa RP is also pretty fun so far, so it might be added to that list.8. Why is this the only one you wrote out as a word instead of a number?
Probably Crossover Central. It was very fun at times, but the controversy surrounding it drained all the fun away, and it had numerous problems. (A note to Enigma: I have nothing against you, and I do genuinely believe you've improved since the CC Controversies.)9.
High school hiding a deeper story, though medieval fantasy is a close second.10
. Probably sci-fi. I don't dislike it, but those tend to confuse me a lot.
enigma a écrit :I already congratulated you in the xat, but congrats again.
So, GD, who is your favorite character in all fiction? (Now, I know you don't like mystery but this isn't an inherently mystery question) Who is your favorite fictional murderer? What VN, in your opinion, has made use of emotion best? What is your favorite scene in any VN? From what you know of me, what VN (and which VN character) do you think suits me best? Same question as the last one, but about yourself?
Yay, I got two congratulations from the same person. Um... I honestly can't decide my favorite character in all of fiction. I like characters for many different reasons, so it seems unfair to compare them. Fictional murderer... Can't decide on that either, sorry. (I am boring) I think Yume Miru Kusuri made the best use of emotion (I am horribly biased when it comes to that, of course), though Little Busters! is a close contender for me with the Refrain route. And I can't help but think of you as anyone except Rena from Higurashi. As for me, I think of myself as some weird combination of a bunch of VN characters, only some of which you'd actually know.
SwagmaWampyr a écrit :So GD, lots of people probably know the answer to this, but well, I don't :V
So... your opinion on Mondo? I'm asking because... well, you know.
(No, I don't really have an opinion on Mondo myself, it's just... you know. The thing.)
I don't think anyone's actually asked me that. Anyway, I actually like Mondo. I like the direction they took his character, though he probably isn't one of my favorites. For a more in-depth answer...
