Character Development 2.1Whuz crackin' m' lackin's? As you may know, I love characters. I love OCs, I love making them, I love developing them, I love writing with them. Though I don't do it as much any more as I would like, roleplaying is one of my favorite ventures. Not knowing what your partner(s) will contribute to the story next keeps you on your toes and is good practice for fleshing out characters by exposing them to these situations they may not usually experience. And of course, the biggest part of any roleplay is the characters, right? Well the problem I have been running into lately is people with characters who, to put it bluntly, majorly suck ass. Like they might have good qualities, but they have one or more major things that make you go "yeeeeergh", like a stripper with no teeth. So I'm face-lifting this guide once again to continue to help out you kiddies when it comes to developing characters.Character Development 2.13 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This

"It's open!" I yell. Pewdie shifts in my arms. I stroke his dirty blonde hair. A few seconds later, Cry enters the room. I glare at the floor for a second, then put on my fake smile.
"Ellos Cry." I say cheerfully.
"Hello Stephano." He says, equally as cheerful. We're both smiling but we both know those smiles are fake. We've never been able to get along. He looks down at the sleeping swede in my arms. He looks at me and glares. He leans in to shake

"He was up all night playing Slender." I look back at Pewdie. He's so beautiful. I look back at cry. He's looking at Pewdie too.

Chemical RainAcid droplets coat the inside of your bitter heart,Chemical Rain1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
Twisting and turning, all the while burning
Down to your last ounce of regret...
But it's too late to turn back the hands of fate,
Wishing all of the dreams- so many nightmares-
Would fade away into oblivion;
It evaporates and fills my lungs,
Leaving a dismal, bitter scar...
As it sinks into me, burning away at my heart,
Within the dying embers I see nothing but pain...
Precarious glow; tearing at the depths of my soul...
Unable to ever quench my insatiable thirst,
As the tides roll down my cheeks
Falling away from all the sorrows I've ever known;
A dream within a dream...

"Bye Stephano. Thanks for having us over," Felix said giving me a bro-hug before leaving with Marzia. Just as they were leaving, Jennifer pulled up and waved to them as they drove off, before ducking inside.
"You're back late," I said simply as she brushed the snowflakes off her hood and flipping it off her head.
"Sorry, my meeting ran late. We qualified for nationals!" She explained excited. I smiled as she cheered for herself.
"I take it Martin and Mayo are celebrating?" I guessed as I closed the door. She nodded before walking down and flopping on the couch.
"How about we celebrate too?" I asked as I sat at the piano. She giggled and sat next to me before idly tapping keys. After a few notes I noticed that she was playing a specific tune, and I joined in with a smile. She played against me, but also in tune with me. I began to play faster, a more intricate melody, and she joined in. Not long after we were laughing, and she was playing all the way up the keys.

SlaughterBlood. It was everywhere. In soaked and stained the grass scarlet, the daises' white petals were red with gore. The hills matched the dawning sun, red like a lake of blood. Bodies of wolves lay dead or dying, the same colour as the wet grass beneath them, hiding their grey fur, coating it. Their golden eyes were closed, or glassy and sightless, staring almost unbelievingly at their comrades and allies. All the blood had flowed; there was none left, and no more grass for it to stain.Slaughter2 years ago in Settings More Like This
As the humans made their way away from the scene, guns holstered, metal ends shinning briefly in the blood-red sun, a single word, unspoken and unheard, danced around their heads. Slaughter.

Listen to the ponies saying my, oh my.
Look up at the moon with sleepy eyes,
Look up at the stars stretching all across the skies.
Little butterflies who Flutter all day long,
Shy away, go to sleep, wake up healthy and strong.
Sleep, My Little Pony, wish the night away,
For tomorrow, is another day of play.
Little filly with no mark,
No time to go search, it is to dark.
Sleep, my precious one,
Soon will rise the sun.

You've got nothing to fear.

To her, you will not hail.
You will be one of the great pegsi,

Caffeens Species InfoCafféens are an original species made by me! They are fairly simple, but I thought I should write up some info on them anyway!~Caffeens Species Info4 months ago in Profiles More Like This
I added some more examples of Cafféens, and also some info on how they're born!
First off, there are two types of them. Coffee, and Tea! Coffee types have coffee beans for ears, while the tea ones have tea leaves! One thing they both share in common is that they both have a cup or mug on the ends of their long thin tails. The cup is filled with whatever coffee or tea they are based off of. They otherwise look like tiny chibi humans!
The beverage can be any kind of coffee or tea! Chai Tea, Earl Grey Tea, Café Mocha, Cappuchino, Black Coffee, etc. The colours of their hair and clothing will then be based on their beverage.
They also smell like the drink they are based on! Yum! They are constantly warm too, and it feels like your holding a nice warm mug

Snow crunched under Leopardnose’s paws. She let her tail drag behind her while her two brothers padded ahead. Above them, the sun shone blissfully in the clear afternoon sky.
How is this possible…? This must be some sort of dream, perhaps…?
But no matter how hard she tried, Leopardnose knew that this wasn’t a dream.
She and her brothers were banished.
“We’re almost out of Clan territory,” Pineheart announced from up ahead.
“I can’t tell if I’m relieved…or heartbroken to hear that!” Ashwhisker joked, trying to lighten the mood.
Leopardnose let out a low growl and flashed out her tail. Her actions were clear: Sissy in a bad mood. Don’t talk to her!
Ashwhisker quickly got the message and didn’t say anything after that.
With a snort, Leopardnose continued to glower at her paws. She wished Pineheart would not walk so quickly, but she knew his reasons.

For new love sung by the burning pyre.
Swan’s wings, ends clipped, in the blood of a maiden dipped,
For your freedom clipped, soaked in the blood of our newfound desire.
A ball of our hair that has been caught,
To brings us together in a trysting knot, as did Tristan and Isolde, lovers forever, entwined flowers bold.
All these things in my iron pot cast,
I know this spell will last,
Our love’s new bird will sing.

Our hair; together one like us.
Never to leave the other; for we are one.
Never to desert; for we are one,
Never to mistrust; for we are one,
Never to be parted by wane nor woe; for we are one,

By the time he had cut Cheren, Bianca, himself, me and my pokemon each a slice only a little cake was left. Before I began to eat my own slice, I called Haxorous to help me serve my pokemon.
"Fine, go feed them, but if I've already eaten your slice when you get back don't be mad!" Black called after me. Reshiram ate her slice in one bite. It wasn't that much to her since she was used to eating a lot of pokemon food.

"Jack, I said no ball in the hall."
Reminded Jinny with her call
-"But what is it about my ball
that I can’t play with it in the hall?"
Jinny glared at the little clown
"It will turn the hall upside down."
-“Turn upside down? That's a neat trick!
How do you do that? With a kick?"
-"You kick that ball and I'll pull your ear
You can play outside, but never here."
Jinny walked away and left Jack aware
about the ball in the hall, it was no dare.
Jack quickly ran the hall to play outside
but running made his shoelaces untie
He tripped and the ball flew off his hands
It knocked four vases and two table stands
And right after the loud "crash" and "crack"
Jinny came back furious shouting at Jack
'What did I say? Didn't you listen at all?!'
- 'Yes, I did, you said no ball in the hall!'
- 'Then why did you disobeyed me if you knew?'
- ' I didn't! It was the ball, it didn't listen to you.'
The angry Jinny walked over to Jack
whose big, silly head got a smack.
