CHARACTER CREATING TIPS
Part 1: Appearance
A key factor in your character's design is the appearance, it affects how they're treated, and generally thought of.
The appearance should be well thought out, and should reflect your character, and not your personal tastes.
I hear many people say, "She/He looks like this because I saw a movie with this one character that was really cool", please, don't ever do this.
You can be inspired by a character you've seen, and take elements from that design and incorporate them into your own, but don't create a character just because you thought something was "cool".
And so now, here are is a list of things to consider when creating your character's appearance. Remember, these are not rules that you have to follow, just suggestions and tips to help you create a better original character
#1: Make your character's attractiveness level, match the character.
It's a common fact that not everyone is drop-dead gorgeous, but it's also known that beauty is in t
Dull MorningsIt was just another dull morning: no action whatsoever, just a quiet morning.Dull Mornings6 months ago in Humor More Like This
Smee hated this kind of morning. Quiet mornings always meant a bored crew. And whenever the crew was bored, Smee's belly was always their favourite playground. It had become a game for them, but for him it was plain torment to go through almost every morning. He found it a bloody disgrace that he had to struggle to survive his own shipmates' dangerous games.
Smee had already set up the shaving materials for his captain. Hook had been extra irritable for the past few weeks, so he decided to give him a relaxing head-and-shoulder massage after his shave today.
Now here was the hard part: getting out of his small cabin and making it across the deck, trying to get past the crew without getting another sword poked at his belly. He pulled his shorts up a bit more and his shirt down, and took his tray.
This was it. He opened the door, dodged the swords that were thrown at the door and moved forward. "M-morning," he s

Janine felt her heart beat louder with every step she took towards that ominously tall apartment building. She'd heard the explosions; she'd seen the skies clearing. People were saying on the news that it was all over, she hoped to god they were right. Despite the change in the weather and the television, she still was filled with terror for Egon. So many things could have happened to him. Her thoughts and grotesque imaginings of what those things could be were soon cut short when she was swallowed by the crowd of onlookers. They all jostling to get a better look at their heroes, she barely noticed the sights and sounds around her, all she could think of was Egon. She caught a glimpse of Peter making out with their first client, what a surprise. At least he was safe, filthy and bedraggled, but safe. All at once, Janine stepped in something that nearly tripped her, holding fast to her shoe, she looked down. Her foot was caught in a puddle of white gooey substance that by the sm

Here's what you need to play:
#1: The "Mario" section of FF.net (Prefferably, but you can use other sites too)
#2: An alchoholic beverage. Actually, it's just safer to use milk, soda, Sprite, Mountain Dew, or whatever, so go with that.
#3: A free mind, and a bored one.

Take 1 sip if:
-Luigi feels overshadowed and neglected by Mario. (Bonus points if he resents him for it too)
-A character other than Mario goes on his/her own quest, such as Luigi, Yoshi, or *gag* Mary-Sue.
-A character other than Mario has his/her own type of game, such as "Peach Party" or "Daisy Kart".
-It's a SMRPG sequel where something happens to the Star Road and Smithy comes back. (Bonus points if Geno comes back because of it)
-Mario is one, several, or all of the following characteristics: fat, lazy, greedy, bossy, selfish, and overall a bastard. Oh, and he

Rob eyed the big red button, resisting the temptation to push it. "Hey Pete, look what I found!"
The salvage operation was one of the most promising their crew has been on; the demons slaughtered everyone in the underground facility and retreated without taking any of the spoils. They did leave, however, corpses in blue and white labcoats with blood smeared all over.
"What!" Came the muffled reply from the far side of the corridor.
Many of the reinforced doors were already bashed in or broken in half. Naturally, the crew raided the blood depository first - no self-respecting vampires would let all that tasty blood get ruined. It's good we arrived in time, while there's still electricity. Not even the clan leaders knew why only facilities such as these had electricity and working technology - or if they did, they surely did not bother telling Rob.

Like all good Mario Story lines... Peach had been kidnapped...again.
The brother's in arms had now reached the castle. "Come on Luigi the Princess is waiting for us!" Mario called back at the skeptical Luigi who hasn't been on such a journey with his older sibling in a wile and not looking forward to it in the least. Mario sighed. "You'll be fine, Weegee! You know you got me to help you!" He told him reassuringly also grabbing Luigi's arm to drag him in the direction of the ominous evil castle looming over the hill side. Mario easily guided Luigi through the castle exactly to where Peach is expertly from many, many times before. The Trouble-Target Princess's eyes widen when she saw them and would have cried out if she wasn't gagged and tied. Mario ran over to her and untied her.
Luigi stood outside the doorway until the sound of clawed feet echoed to his direction. Whirling around to gape at Bowser Lu
The Princess and the Plumber"Mario, breakfast is ready!" Luigi called out to his older brother as he put two plates of eggs, pancakes, and sausages on the table. Mario walked downstairs in a rather slow pace, still half-asleep. He didn't seem very happy and he's had something, or rather someone, on his mind as of late. This worried Luigi because Mario normally woke up in a cheerful mood when it came to breakfast. What was bothering him this morning? As Luigi was finishing the rest of his eggs, he noticed that Mario barely even took a bite of his food.The Princess and the Plumber6 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
"Hey, bro, what's wrong?" Luigi asked his brother, "you barely even took a bite of your sausage and you have even touched the rest of your food." Luigi was really concerned about his brother. He was curious to find out why he was acting so weepy this morning. But Mario, not wanting to drag Luigi into his personal problem, decided to try to avoid the subject.
"Oh, nothing," Mario lied, "nothing at all." But Luigi knew Mario all too well. He knew that there was defini

What? Who do wha?
Lusaun leaned against the nearest pillar, sighing. An inner turmoil ragged inside of her. Disappointment and fear mingled with distrust edged closer at her brain. Wile Worry and confusion made it difficult for her thoughts to transform into sense.
Something didn't feel right about Dimentio
Something didn't feel right about Shada
Something was wrong. Terribly wrong.
Her senses clashed with the mingling traces of Dimentio's Power and the fading aura of Shada's blood.
Wait. Dimentio's Power? When did he become so powerful that it fades Shada's own? That got Lusaun thinking. Quickly she scanned the room, pleased to find it vacant. Pulling away the rug that ran its length down the corridor, she wiped out her spell book from her pack. Spinning around still on the floor she grasped the three crystalline claws from where they lied on bloody marble, repeating the same step with a partly disintegrated pillar. She gasped. The pilla

1) Write a story about your favorite book/movie/play/TV show, starring your favorite characters in situations of your devising. This is called fanficiton.
2) Gloat. It's almost as good—no, better!—than the real thing. The original author/creator/director should hire you to do their job for them!
3) Discover FanFiction.net. Feel unoriginal for a moment, then console yourself that no one's fanfiction could possibly be as good as yours.
4) Browse fics from your favorite book/movie/play/show. Read a few at random.
5) Die a little inside seeing the way fourteen-year-old writers molest the characters of your beloved fandom and the English language in general (even if you are fourteen yourself).
6) Be glad your fics aren't that terrible. Make all haste in posting your own, taking care to check the grammar and spelling along the way.
7) Submit your fic. Feel benevolent for nobly sharing your genius with these talentless wretches.

If Only You Were Real...It's a cold winter night. The day is almost over. Snowflakes fall from the sky, then become one in the ground. I sat on the bench, gazing at the sky. No one was around.

Mary Sue is a title given to characters in fanfiction (and sometimes original, professional work) who are simply perfect: They are beautiful, smart, friendly, always willing to help for nothing in exchange even if they can die, powerful, important in one way or other...you get the point (I will explain on emphasis later).
