Hello, World

Journal Entry: Sun Jul 14, 2013, 5:08 PM
Image by the Great and Talented Steven E. Gordon


Hello, DeviantArt. It is I, BlazeRocket, here with another whiney journal entry.

I just wanted to appologize to all of you, because I've been so absent. I'm still working on Evo things, I swear, I just... I haven't been uploading. Or finishing them, really. I haven't been finishing much of anything, these days.

See, the long and short of it is I'm depressed. Like... really. It's not good. It's killing, among other things, not only my ability to be creative, but my desire to be creative. All I want to do any more is sleep.

I want to want to be creative. So it's not all lost. And when I DO force myself to pick up a pencil for my own enjoyment, it's always Evo that comes out of it. My love of Evo is the only constant in my life, atm.

So yes. If you're one of the people who's only just started watching me, I'm sorry o__o I want to kick this funk and get back to my old self, I really do. If you've been watching me for a while, or have been waiting for me to update the EOC... god, I'm SO sorry.

I'm trying to get better. Hopefully I'll be there soon. But until such a time as that, I just wanted to give a heads up about the lack of updates. I'm still here. I'm just a little hollow.

An Open Request to my HugBox

Lonely


Recently, I uprooted and moved, again. I've moved before, but this was still a new experience for me. When I moved from Montana to Washington, I took a week and toured the different cities I was thinking about moving to, so I would know which one to pick. When I moved to Japan, I had a career waiting for me, and a network of forigners who were relocating, just like me, to rely on. When I moved to Seattle, I had school work to engross me, and introduce me to new people. But when I moved to California... I had no job waiting for me, and only the vaguest idea of what the city was like.


It's been about four months now, I guess, and I can honestly say I've never felt so crushingly, disparingly, crippelingly alone in my entire life.


I have job offers, so things are finally moving forward in that department, and I've found a Swing Dance scene that's active and just a walk+bus ride away, but none of that changes the fact that I feel alone.






Role Play


I've had a lot of luck, in the past, making friends on the internet. Especially here, on DA.  So I'm casting my net, once again. I know it's sort of egotistical, asking people to come to me, but I clearly fail at making friends, or this wouldn't be a problem.

I'm very fandom oriented, so if you'd like to chat about X-men: Evolution, that would make my day. I also enjoy escaping my own crushingly lonely life by pretending to be other people-- you know. Role Play. I'm a terrible speller, but I do try, really hard, to be a good RP partner, and to give as good as I get.

So. I guess. If any of that tickles your fancy-- chatting or Role Playing, or whatever-- send me a note?




I'd really appreciate it.

An Update with Birthday Wishes

Journal Entry: Fri Oct 26, 2012, 1:15 AM
Image by the Great and Talented Steven E. Gordon


Happy Birthday, Muffin!

First up-- yesterday, BARELY yesterday, but yesterday none the less, was my dear friend :iconmuffinelf:'s birthday. I owe her SO many presents it's not even funny o____o I was TRYING to get my new set up, er, set up in time to wish her TIMELY birthdays, buuuut, clearly that didn't happen. But just by BARELY.

But anywho. It's muffinelf's birthday, she's awesome awesome, and everyone should wish her a (late) happy birthday. Draw her pictures of Toad. She likes that ^_^



New Setup?

Meanwhile-- Yes! A new set up. I have recently moved. AGAIN. I... seem to do that a lot, given how much I dislike moving. >_> Yet MOVE I DO. And never little moves. Always crossing, like, minimum two states. This time, I've moved Allllll the way to southern California. The move was long, and hard, but the weather is so worth it o____o
It's taken me longer than I care to admit to get my computer and internet back. I've been working on Evo comics, of ALL sorts-- Evo Everlasting, Ask Evo, Prize Comics I owe SOMEONE from since FOREVER AGO, plus a super seekret new comic I'm working on with someone else which is. Oh my god. So hillarious. And Evo. BOTH. You folks are gonna LOVE IT. But yeah. I only just now got everything set back up, so-- Whoo. Hopefully updates soon!



Disappointment

Speaking of updates... I admit I'm a bit disappointed at the lack of activity over at the Evo-Obsessed-Club. On the one hand, I realize I can't expect the same level of activity that I used have, right after such a hiatus. Not to mention, with a show like Evo that's off air, it's hard to find fans who are actually dedicated and active any more. Still, I got several notes, asking why the contests had stopped, and then when I finally go and put up a new contest... nothing. It's almost over and I've still not gotten ONE entry. Colour me disappointed. I'm wondering if I should give up my death-grip on the past, and accept that the fandom is just not the same now as it was back in 2000. I don't want to, though. Things were so good, and so fun back then.  Ahh well. I guess I'm just nostalgic.

Miss Cranky-Pant's Thoughts on Fandom

Journal Entry: Fri Jun 10, 2011, 10:25 AM
Image by the Great and Talented Steven E. Gordon


So, recently, a number of people have approached me asking for advice on how to go about making a X-men fan series. And by "a number" I totally mean "three" .... which is APPARENTLY enough to warrant an entire journal entry! WHOO!

Now- this should go without saying, but I'm going to make a point of it anyway- These are JUST MY TWO CENTS. God knows, I am a HORRIFIC writer. I come up with HORRIBLE ideas, my dialogue is stilted, and I can't write action to save my life. That said- I have been with X-men Evolution since day one (that's back in 2000, youngin's!), and been reading X-men comics even longer. I may not be able to write myself, but I know BADNESS when I see it. I push myself, and I push myself HARD to avoid falling into a number of traps that always PISS ME THE HELL OFF in others work. Which is probably why I rage so easily... If I can control the rampaging moron-thoughts in my head, and not spew them indiscriminately on to the internet, then WHY CANT YOU?! >.O ...  See, that, right there? That rage? That is why I don't read fan fiction any more. S'not healthy. Does that make me a hypocrite? You bet! Am I going to stop doing EE? HECK NO. And therein lies the dichotomy of being meeeeee.

However, that's all getting off track. I shall now attempt to talk about how to go about creating a fan series, and a few (read: THREE THOUSAND) common mistakes that make me want to punch baby animals. BECAUSE FANDOM R SRSS BSNS :stare:



Creating a Fan Series


:grump:First things first: the ONLY reason you should ever undertake something like this is if you have so many ideas, so much love for a show, so much drive that you can't stand it. YOU have to have a story to tell, and the tweaked out brain that won't let you rest if you don't. You can do a series without this, but odds are that it'll wither and die off sooner rather than later.

:grump:In the same branch of thinking, you have to do this for YOU. If you're planning on doing a series to get fans... stop. Just- just stop. Having people who enjoy your work is, of course, a bonus, and there's nothing wrong with throwing in a nod to them, but overall? A fan series is something you do for YOURSELF.  Yaay narcissism :D

:grump:Now, even though you're doing this for yourself... also keep in mind that it should be FUN. If you're enjoying creating the series, people will enjoy reading it. The minute it becomes an obligation in your life, then you've got a problem. There's nothing wrong with creating a schedule, and trying to stick to it, but remember: it's JUST FANDOM. It's not a project you can put in a portfolio, and it's CERTAINLY not something you'll ever get any money for. So if your friend calls you and wants to hang out, and you find yourself sitting at home muttering ANGRILY to yourself how you COULD be hanging out with your friend, but nooo, you had to finish this stupid comic for the update tomorrow? Stop. Put the pencil down. Go play. I promise you the fandom will still be there when you get back.

:grump:Specifically speaking on fan comics now, I can guarantee that if you do a comic long enough, eventually you'll look back on that first page and go "... DAYUM. I freakin' SUCKED back then. I have IMPROVED SO MUCH." This is a good thing! You're developing your critical eye, and improving your drawing skills! Hurrah! The problem will come when that little voice starts whispering in your head "Hey, you know what- I should go back and redraw this page. Just so it looks more like the others, and so I don't have to see my old terrible drawings anymore :D." This is a mistake. Because you have now just created a loop. You'll re-do these first few pages, but then, you'll get to the middle pages- and your work is CERTAINLY better than that now, so you'll just redo THOSE pages too... and now you're caught back up to where you were, but- heck you've improved again, so you'll redraw THOSE, and- well now you've improved and those FIRST pages look like crap again! Shit! Best redraw them AGAIN... Every comic I've seen, fan comic or no, that has tried to go back and re-draw old pages has spluttered, stalled, and ultimately just ended. Don't be afraid of your old work. Keep it around as a reminder of how much better you've got, and PUSH EVER ONWARDS. Don't ever go backwards.

:grump:A BIG one, this, but... Just... just don't use OCs. Just freakin' don't. You're doing a FAN SERIES. You know why people are fans? Because they fell in love with the characters and stories of the show. You know what no one cares about? Your OC. It's tough to hear, I know. Your friends will suck you off, I promise you, telling you how awesome your story is, and how cool your OC is, and how much they love your comic. The rest of the universe, will, at best, roll their eyes and move on. I know this contradicts the first point, which is to do this for yourself, but if you're looking to be successful outside your circle jerk of friends, then leave the OCs out. If you simply MUST introduce your own character into a starring role, introduce them gradually. Start your comic out with just canon characters, and then slowly, over time, introduce your character into the comic. Small parts at first, slowly giving me more and more screen time. This is still no guarantee that people won't roll their eyes, but they may be willing to give you a chance, this way.

But seriously. Don't use OCs.

:grump:Here's one specific to Evo that I am... INSANELY guilty of! If you're going to use Comic!Canon to influence your Evo!Canon, then for the love of god, try and integrate it naturally. And if there's Evo canon that already contradicts your desired point of Comic!Canon (*cough*Kurt's eyes*cough*) then guess what? TOUGH NOOGIES. (there's actually more that I'm more guilty of but... I'm actively trying to edit that out of the future scripts of EE, so YOU HAVEN'T SEEN IT YET AHAHAAHAHAHAHAHahem o.o) You're stuck with Evo!Canon. Suck it up, fellow comic fans. u.u

:grump:Remember: In Character Action = In Character Consequences. This is actually something I'm stealing from Role Play etiquette, but it applies here as well. If you're going to have a character take some action, say, Cyclops punches a police officer in the face (which... actually isn't in character, but more about that in the last point), then according to the displayed history of action taken by police in canon of Evo... Scott'sa headed to jail! Don't have the characters doing outrageous things without raising the stakes to match it. If you don't, the action falls flat, and loses all tension, as well as coming across as poorly written.  Nooo thankyou.

:grump:A good point for just life in general, but don't be a dick. Chances are, in your comic, you'll have your own OTPs that you wanna play with. That's fine (just keep the next point in mind). Be prepared to have rival pairing fans come out of the woodwork though. Is this dickish of them? Yes. yes it is. But don't be a dick back. Take the high road. This is... actually just good advice in general, so I'm going to amend this point to "avoid teh dramaz". A fan series will be your baby. You'll love it, and treasure it ways that are unnatural to sane people. Which means any slightly differing opinion, any criticism, any stupid comment will make you want to EXPLODE IN A RAGE at that person. ... or maybe that's just me o.o I do have anger management issues >.> Regardless! Take a step back from the keyboard. Take a breath. Just.. Just try not to be a drama llama. It's hard, I know. Belieeeeeeve me I know. o.o But try.

:grump:And now, for the BIGGEST one, the one which will segue directly into the common mistakes made... Keep your characters IN CHARACTER. Again, the reason people became fans in the first place was because they liked the characters, the plot, the stories. It behooves you to try and stay as close to these as possible. Waaaaaaaay too often (an yes, I'm looking at YOU, yaoi!fangirls >.O )  a character gets twisted around, until the only way they recognizable as themselves is by their name. I know we all wish that X would do Y to Z, but that's when you have to sit down and REALLY THINK. THINK about if X would ACTUALLY do that to Z. If Z would REALLY react in that way. My own personal pitfall is focusing SOLELY on my favourite characters, and having the side characters react in whatever way best facilitates my darlings looking awesome. But even if you don't really care about them- or even don't like them? It's still up to you to write them RIGHT, if you're going to include them. Trust me- the interactions will seem ALL THE MORE AWESOME, because they'll have that "ring 'o' canon" instead of just being mindless fan!fap. I'm not saying Gambit and Beast can't be ZOMG OTP, but you damn well best find a way to do it that's in-character and plausible for BOTH of them, or it'll just be silly fan Possession Sues.


Jesus sparkling christ on a cracker I'm a hypocrite. >_> MOVING ON!



Common Pitfalls


Here's some of the more common pitfalls that cause me rage! In alphabetical order. OooooOOOOooo! A lot of these have no basis in canon, but some do. PERSONALLY, I think they're all worth heeding >.> There are... a lot more than these, but these are the ones I see a lot, that make me face palm the hardest.

Avalanche
:nuu:S'ok, as an adopted child who was in the system, let me bring the good news to you all. ORPHANAGES DO NOT EXIST IN AMERICA ANY MORE. Not the way you all are writing them at least. There are foster homes, and the occasional religious organization that creates a home for orphaned children but orphanages? .... no. Evo's geo-political-economic society is VERY similar to ours, in this world, just plus!mutants. It stands to reason they would not have orphanages either. Please, please, please, for the love of god, stop having Lance's origin stories set in an orphanage. It's overly dramatic, uninformed, and just... no. Plus: It says, IN THE SHOW, they say he's in "Foster Care." Check out "The X-Impulse" if you don't believe me.  Foster Care is NOT an orphanage. They are VERY DIFFERENT THINGS.
:nuu:Lance is not, to any displayable means, Mexican. He doesn't have an accent. At no point does he bust out a "Dios mio!" Stop making his speak Spanish. This guy probably isn't even passing English o______o
:nuu:And a creepy one! Stop making Lance a rapist. :D Does he have rage issues? Yes. Yes he does. Is he the kind of guy who rapes? .... noooooo. :stare:. Punch, maybe! He's big on hitting and oh man does he LOVE grabbing! But- I find it incredibly OOC to turn him into a rapist. So. No. Bad fandom! no cookie! If you turn Lance into your default rapist!bad guy, you are a bad writer, and you should feel bad. And probably stop writing.

Blob
:nuu:It's ok to write about fat people! If I had a nickle for every time Freddy just ISN'T WITH THE BROTHERHOOD... I'd have a lot of nickles. Don't leave him out just because you think he's "gross" (you shallow fuck). HE'S THERE, DEAL WITH IT, or STOP WRITING THE BROTHERHOOD.
:nuu:Again with the rape thing? Ok, can we just say from here on out that NONE OF THE BROTHERHOOD are the types to rape? Yeah, I know, Freddy got all creeper and kidnapped Jean, but he would have beat her to death out of frustration and anger before he ever got around to unzipping his fly. STOP MAKING EVO GUYS RAPE PEOPLE, FANDOM. FUCKING. STOP IT. >.O

Cyclops
:nuu:A sick in the mud? Oh hell yes. A RAGING ASSHOLE? Nooooo. Cyclops is a nice guy, with a strong moral comps and sense of responsibility. He's a stickler for the rules. Every time he tried to break rules in canon, it IMMEDIATELY came back to bite him in the ass. He's not going to be ordering people around, making them do the work for him, getting off on a power trip. He's a team player, and at the end of the day, genuinely cares about his teammates. Make him a hardass, yes, but don't forget that he also has a heart.
:nuu:Also remember: He DOES have a sense of humor. He CAN take a joke. Don't have him blowing his shit over every little thing. Maybe a bunch of little things piled up over time, sure, but don't make him your generic cut-out Meanie Authority Figure.

Gambit
:nuu:If'n ya'll have de Gambit or any ot'er character tahk lak diz in ya'll works? Y'need t'be shawt in de fahce, shure t'ing cherie! Ah wouldn' lahh t'ya'll.
In all seriousness, over-writing an accent is one of the sure ways to piss EVERYONE OFF EVER. I will go on record, and tell you right now that Marvel LIED TO ALL OF YOU. There is no reason fucking EVER, to right "I" as "Ah". EVER. STOP. DOING IT. In any given sentence, you should have maybe one or two dropped letters, and, at MOST, one misspelled word for the sake of pronunciation. Have some FAITH in your audience. You would be surprised how much a person can infer from just that. There is NO NEED to beat us over the head with it.
:nuu:Gambit referring to himself in the 3rd person was a staple of XtAS. Not Evo.
:nuu:Cajun and French are different. You can have him use both if you want, but at least figure out which is which, and use them right >/
:nuu:NOT A TEENAGER, SORRY FANGIRLS. Gambit is, like the other Acolytes in Evo, Early to mid Twenties. He and Rogue can't have their teen-love because he's NOT A TEEN. They can have vaguely-statutory-love, but just give it up on the teen thing.

Jean
:nuu:Surprisingly, Jean is NOT the epic bitch you want to make her into! She is a popular girl, and she does get jealous and a little overly girl!power at times, but really? Nooooot the epic cunt so many people write her to be. She's smart, good looking, caring, and empathic. She's not a manipulative, backstabbing whore. Stop projecting your high school insecurities onto her. It makes you look pathetic. :stare:

Magneto
:nuu:Ughh *sigh* This one is hard, because... he was not always well written in canon, often times coming across as amazingly 1-dimensional, but just- remember he's NOT a cruel, heartless beast of a man. Driven? Yes. Cold? Probably! But... ehh. Try to remember his motivations. He was in the concentration camps in WWII. He as experienced the worst humanity has to offer, BUT! freaking BUT! He also has a family. And more than anything, he wants to create a perfect world for his family, where they can all be safe. The mission statement has branched out from that, clearly, but it's important to remember basic driving things. He's a hard man, because he has to be, but- don't make him more hard than he NEEDS to be.

Multiple
:nuu:A CHILD! The youngest of both the Brotherhood and the X-men.
:nuu:His powers are based on kinetic energy, and exponential. The "real" Jamie is not the only one who can duplicate. Every single one of his duplicates can ALSO duplicate.
:nuu:The only mutant to have his powers since birth (not counting physical mutations, such as Kurt's ... general... entire body region >.>) Cannon ball did not rocket out of his mom's cooch, nor did Kitty Pryde just sort of fall out one day. Mutations from Birth are limited to Mr. Multiple here.

Mystique
:nuu:The way most people write Jean is how they should be writing Mystique. She is one baaaad mother fu- ... *ahem* The OTHER thing about Mystique is that she's PAINFULLY smart. She's not going to go running willy-nilly into situations she doesn't know anything about. her powers make her a spy. She habitually gathers intel before missions, so is very rarely caught off guard. She's also not stupid. She won't antagonize a situation she can't win, and she won't just run around acting like... a stupid one-note villain.

Nightcrawler
:nuu:OH SWEET JESUS WHERE TO BEGIN.
He's not a cutter. :stare: STOP THAT. The really, really neat thing about Kurt is that his life freakin SUCKS. I mean... just look at him. He has EVERY REASON IN THE WORLD to go be Mr. Emo Sad Angst Pants in the Sewer with the rest of the pity party, but that's the thing! he ISN'T. Kurt is a HAPPY GUY. He laughs. He makes jokes. He loves life. Especially now that he's at the institute! Yeah he's got bouts of depression, but in the end, he overcomes, reminds himself that God loves him and made him this way for a reason, and then goes out for a burger. To make him a goth depressed cutter is to take away the aspect of his personality that makes him an interesting character. "Oh, well, he's just HIDING his angst, so that the others th-" NO. STOP. SHUT UP. STOP DOING THAT.
:nuu:Kurt's tail is part of his body. Like his fingers. Or his legs. Or his nose. It does not have a mind of its own. It might switch back and forth if he's aggravated, or droop if he's sad, but it won't sneak off and grab a Pepsi while he's not paying attention, or specifically act AGAINST his wishes, when he's actively thinking about it. He is not Magellan from Eureeka's Castle. Stop that.
:nuu:Kurt is an incredibly gentle soul. He would never intentionally hurt anyone. And to take this one a step further. I shouldn't have to say this, but he's NOT A NAZI. >.O Jeeeesus.

Quicksilver
:nuu:Oh. Fucking. Christ.
I... I don't know how to do this one without beating people with a board with a nail in it. LET ME TRY TO BE OBJECTIVE.
He's FUCKING FAST. Unless you're Jean Grey, or have somehow managed to sneak up on him from behind, you're not going to "catch him by the wrist" or "Pin him against the wall" or any of this bullshit. He will see you coming, laugh at you, let you get really close, then ZIP BEHIND YOU AND BITCH SLAP YOU.
:nuu:He's not a fucking girl, and he's not girly. Is he lean? Yes. Is he meticulous and narcissistic? Yes. Is he a hysterical, incapable screaming femmy -albino-boy? NO. So STOP WRITING HIM LIKE THAT. He's not albino, and he's not feminine. LOOK AT HIS CHARACTER DESIGN. He's actually rather olive skinned, and the BOY has some MUSCLES. Yes, they're lean, in form with his power, but he's not a weakling, by any stretch of the imagination. He's not a "girl" and he's not "feminine." If you write him like this, you're twisting him so far out of character, he's no longer the character the rest of us love. Stop it. Go waist your shitty writing on your shitty OCs that no-one cares about. STOP SHITTING ON CHARACTERS PEOPLE LIKE WITH YOUR TERRIBLE WRITING.
:nuu:He's a PERFECTIONIST and a REALIST. It means if he sees a situation is going poorly, and he will likely not come out on top, HE WILL RUN THE FUCK AWAY. Some call this cowardice. That's a fair interpretation, but I prefer to think of it as shrewdness. No seance in staying in a fight you've no chance at winning. THIS however, does not mean he can't fight. He's perfectly capable. Go back and watch the throws he executes on Scott and Evan in Speed and Spyke if you don't believe me. This is a guy who can punch you 50 times in the blink of an eye, if he wants. So stop making him a whaling girl!Substitute. SERIOUSLY. I WILL FUCKING END YOU.

Rogue
:nuu:STOP WRITING "AH" FOR I. GUGHGHGHHGHG. GUGHHGHHHHHHHHH. I cannot possibly express to you how much this makes me instantly hate whatever it is I'm looking at. I could never really get on board with Rogue in the comics for THIS EXACT REASON. I know I'm not the only one who feels like this too.
:nuu:Stop finding "Magical sudden ways" she can get around or control her powers. One of funnest aspect of Rogue is how her powers separate her from others. Nine times out of ten, people have her get around her power so she can make out and get it it ON with another person, which, if this is why you're going to do that? That's a CRAPPY REASON. Seriously, it reflects poorly on you, as a person. If, despite this, you're STILL going to have her get around her powers... Keep in mind that she has spent the last so many years of her life covered up, away from skin to-skin contact, and, depending on when in the time line you have this happen, at least a year training herself that touching = thoughts in her heads, pain (in some cases), danger for other people, and SHOULD BE AVOIDED AT ALL COSTS. You just have her JUMP ON UP IN THAT SEX after controlling her powers.... ugh. No. There would be mental barriers to get past, before she was comfortable touching anyone. Yeah, she's a teenager, and yeah, she may be horny as hell, but she's also EXTREMELY SKITTISH. Sooo... stop using Rogue as your surrogate Sex-Sue. It's disrespectful to the character >/

Sabertooth
:nuu:Is not the type to settle down and get all lurvy with any of the canon characters of Evo. He MIGHT have had a kid with Mystique, but I will tell you now, that was some angry, violent as hell sex. He's not going to nurture, or protect ANY of the current cast members. I know he had such a relationship with Blink in the comics. But guess who's not in Evo. That's right. And guess who's never shown any inclination of paternal or romantic protectiveness towards ANYONE  in Evo? ... Sabertooth, to name one.

Scarlet Witch
:nuu:... Not actually as Goth as you might think o.o
:nuu:Her hair is red when she's "The Scarlet Witch" and black when she's "Wanda." It's not hair dye. It's her powers. If you need an expiation on how her powers work... thaaat's a topic for another time -___-

Shadowcat
:nuu:ITTY BITTY KITTY TITTIES. Seriously, the girl's, like, an a-cup. For the love of god, stop giving her huge honking tits. Girls of all cup sizes can be beautiful, and to insinuate that Kitty needs bigger tits to be attractive is insulting to the character, and to women as a whole.
:nuu:VERY INTELLIGENT. Kitty is a nerd in disguise. She may talk like a valley girl (though, never to the extent that people want to write it as), but this bitch is SMART.

Toad
:nuu:Much like how Lance is no longer 'Dominic Petros' in Evo, Todd is no longer Mortimer Toynbee. THIS MEANS, he's not British anymore. He would not use British slang, and he would not talk with an accent. So, uhm.... stopit.
:nuu:Todd is... Gross. Really, really gross. I know it's easy to look at the cartoon, and think "Aw, misunderstood bad boy! He just needs a girlfriend/boyfriend to believe in him, and..." let me stop you right there. The only way Todd will EVER get a significant other is if they have no sense of smell. I want you to imagine, in real life, a small guy, with greenish-grayish skin and overly large, yellowish eyes that BULGE out of his head, that match his yellowish-brown teeth that he OBVIOUSLY doesn't brush. This same guy has greasy, dirty hair, and INCREDIBLE BO due to the well known fact that he doesn't shower or bathe more often than once a month, despite being incredibly physically active. To top it off, you've seen this guy, OPENLY, in public eat bugs, off the ground, with an unnaturally long green tongue. And again- no brushing of the teeth, so dead-bug-and-dirt smell is just going to FESTER in there.
I love Toad. He is one of my FAVORITE CHARACTERS. But until he can get someone that can look past how he SMELLS, romance is just not in his cards.

Wolverine
:nuu:Unlike other X-universe, Wolverine is extremely paternal in this universe. PATERNAL. NOT ROMANTIC. Please don't write him getting it on with the students. It's just creepy.

Xavier
:nuu:I am the FIRST to lead the "Xavier is a dick" parade into "oh my god such a douche" camp, but the REALLY COOL THING about Xavier is that he is SUBTLE AS FUCK with his dickery. Unless you are seeing things from a 3rd person omniscient view, it's REALLY HARD to pick up on. So... don't have him being a dick OPENLY. He's not an evil stepfather, he's got cunning. And he DOES want what's best. for the most part, so don't forget that either.



And so ends this amazing journal of alienation. Is anyone still reading this? Have I managed to hit on at least one thing to piss everyone off? Anyone still want to be friends? Hello?

I will cap this of with a reminder: I know and am aware of what a hypocrite I am. Consider this a "learn from my mistakes" sort of message, or a "Do as I say, not as I do." Seriously, a LOT of the things I listed up there, are things that I have thought or done, and then over time come to understand better or regret. I'm TRYING to improve, and get better about it, I swear.

Life Updates

Journal Entry: Fri Mar 11, 2011, 5:29 PM
Image by the Great and Talented Steven E. Gordon



With the recent earthquake in Japan, I have received several notes asking if I'm alright. I'm pleased to let you know: I am fine. I have just recently moved back to America, and so was not in Japan at the time of these earthquakes. However, many of my friends and co-workers were, and I have been very, very concerned for them. Thankfully, everyone's checked in, but there have been too many earthquakes recently for this to be the end of it. I just hope everyone stays safe and alive.

So- Thankyou for thinking of me! I am fine.




Meanwhile- the original reason I was going to update this journal is with... not sad news, but somewhat disappointing news, for me at least. Upon my re-entry into America-land, I have returned to school, not as a teacher this time, but as a student... again. I'm getting my associates in animation to go with my previously acquired bachelor of fine art (who can tell, I know, right?).  I'm attending a very work-intensive school. And the thing is- they don't give us busy work. Every assignment I get is something I NEED to do to acquire skills and knowledge to get me into the sort of career I need to be happy in life.

Which... doesn't leave me with a whole lot of free time.

All of which amounts to... EE is basically going on something of a reluctant hiatus. If I have TIME, I will absolutely put up some more pages, but right now, my class work really, really has to come first. I'm NOT going to stop- we're JUST getting to the good stuff. But updates are going to be a lot... slower. As if they hadn't been already. I'm just making it official, so you all know; I haven't given up or gotten board of it. I just... don't have time :(

In fact, my activity at DA is going to be pretty limited in general, right now. I had hoped to re-start contests at EOC in February, but, hah, clearly that didn't happen. Once the OC Tourney is over, I'll start running contests again, though probably not challenges for a bit, and that will be the extent of my activity.

I hope you all can bare with me while I finish up my schoolin' ^_^;

2011 Calenders! Plus: LONG Overdue Journal Update

Journal Entry: Sat Dec 11, 2010, 11:10 AM
Image by the Great and Talented Steven E. Gordon


2011 Calendar


Stolen from Rain's Journal

Yup, folks, it's that time again! X-MEN EVOLUTION CALENDAR TIME!

What?

Gasp?

Can it be true?

The mesiah has come?

Yes, my friends, he has come! In the form of the most perfect calendar ever created and JUST in time for the holidays!

:iconblazerocket: and I bled, sweat, cried, and giggled a little over this masterpiece; slaved over by the top 12 Evo artists in the entire fandom, hand-picked at the time of juciestness to lend their gifts to this project. By purchasing an Evo calendar, you'll be privy to hot-off-the-presses-in-your-hand-one-of-a-kind artwork by such incredible talents as :iconalassa:, :iconprydester:, :iconprincefala:, and :icondjinn-world: just to name a sparkling few! These beauties and many, many, many more will spend month after month in your home or work space, filling your your life with bright, X-Men Evolution related joy! What better way to be that much closer to your fandom?

Now I bet you're sitting there, barely able to keep your butt from squirming off your seat, reaching for your life savings but HOLD ON FRIEND! Put that hand down! Where I can see it, please. You're probably thinking you'll need a fortune to obtain something more valuable than the Holy Grail but you, good sir, are WRONG! SO WRONG! You better get to a restroom before your bladder releases uncontrollably because these calendars are being sold for not $100 not $50 but $20 (plus S&H). That small explosion you just heard was the logical portion of your brain BEING BLOWN APART from disbelief! Just to make sure it won't grow back I will repeat!: $20 (plus S&H)!

Let me spell this out for you: For $20 (plus S&H) you will be getting 12 full color images by 12 amazing artists of 20+ of your favorite characters from your favorite show on this planet! AND IT'S A CALENDAR! It's like getting a calendar AND 12 commissioned images for only $20 (plus S&H)! That's AT MOST $2 per FULL COLOR, FULL SHADING, COMPUTER ENHANCED PICTURE MASTERPIECE! THAT'S A STEAL, PEOPLE! A STEAL! MY CAPS KEY CAN'T TAKE IT!

And if you can't believe this can be real I will PROVE YOU WRONG AGAIN. I have a SAMPLE of the genius you will be bringing into your homes! HERE: fav.me/d34m17t

I can see you have nothing more to say because this MASTERTUDE CANNOT BE DENIED!

And as if there was any of your brain left after all of this here's ANOTHER tid bit for you: All proceeds cover the production and shipping and handling of these calendars! Not a CENT goes into the creators coffers! So why would these brilliant artists lend their talent for NOTHING? OUT OF LOVE, my friends. OUT OF LOVE!

So, if you want to give your love to the cause, note me and say "RAIN! I WANT A CALENDAR!" All payments will be done through paypal, all details given after you note me with "RAIN! I WANT A CALENDAR!" and hopefully something a little more like a question about how I'm doing or something about the weather and DEFINITELY your address so we know where to send it to. Otherwise...I mean....you can pay for it but if I don't know where I'm sending it...well I've just got myself yet ANOTHER copy of AWESOME IN TANGIBLE FORM...and your money. ;)

WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?!*

*This was my sister JCRobin's write-up from last year. It was...kind of TOO epic to try to follow. I did change the artists listed as they are different from last year's. Seriously though, we have an AMAZING calendar this year. YOU NEED TO CHECK IT OUT.






Long Overdue Update

*splutter coughs* What? I live? I... I DO! Not that you'd be able to tell, based on my recent lack of updates. I apologize for that, folks, I really do. I recently quit my job in Japan so I could move back to Amurika-land which... was chaos. I worked for the Japanese government, so I was treated to BONUS levels of Japanese red-tape in order to leave the country (and. Y'know. Get my last paycheck >_>). Add to that the usual excitement and chaos involved in packing everything you own to be sent across an ocean, and that accounts for my radio silence BEFORE moving. Now, almost half a year later (Jeeeeeze time flies) I'm finally settling back into my homeland, my reverse culture shock receding, and feeling ready to start updating my account again.

Whiiiich would be easeir to do if I had a working scanner. -_____- I HAVE EE to upload- I swear I do. PLUS a bunch of other things. But unless I want to haul them all down to a public scanner, scan there, send back to my home computer, and work with sub-to-random-quality scans at home... ehhh. I'd just as soon wait until I can buy my OWN scanner again. Soon though. I swear you're not watching me in vain, and that the account isn't dead!

I've been busy since returning home. After arriving in Amurika land, I detoured to LA again, to visit :iconrainrach: and :iconjcrobin: again, for San Diego ComiCon. It was my first time at this particular con, and my second con EVER- WAOW. What a trip!

After that, I was back in Montana for a month or two, as my boxes and boxes of things from Japan arrived... destroyed. I've never had problems with shipping things before, but for SOME REASON, this time.... My collection of Copic Markers was destroyed. I specifically packed them so they wouldn't rattle around, and wouldn't be damaged in shipping, but when they arrived, the box had been opened, and not only were a number of markers just flat out MISSING, they had not been properly repackaged. Because of this, almost all of their caps had popped off from rattling around in their cases, and approximately $400 worth of markers were RUINED. Completely dry. Iiiii was kind of devastated. I HAD been planning on finishing my Senses contest entry with them but- hah- guess not.

I also got one box, which, when I had sent it, had been full of books and a few sketch books. When it arrived it contained ONE of my books, and a tube of rose-scented moisturizer which I had never seen before in my life. Turns out that the contents of at least three boxes had gotten mixed around. The woman who's box arrived with some of my sketch books was able to track me down on Facebook, and thankfully I got those returned, but everything else is still lost in the void.

The SECOND box of books I sent home- this after having agonized over which books I wanted to keep, and which to donate to my local library- is still missing. I received a letter from the post office saying they found a label with my name on it, but they have yet to be able to track down the box it belongs to. So there go all my art-recourse books, as well as some books I just really, really liked (enough to take WITH me to Japan, and want to take WITH ME back to America). I'm just glad I decided to put my S.E.G. sketchbooks in my luggage at this point.

After chilling in Montana, and riding out the worst of my reverse culture shock, I moved out to the west coast, again, where I met the amazing AND talented :iconmuffinelf:. For y'all youngin's who don't recognize her names- muffinelf is one of The Old Ones, one of the ones involved in the Evo fandom from BACK IN THE DAY, when it was first showing on TV. She was a regular at Lesli's Groovy, which was like a WAY COOLER and MORE AWESOME version of the EOC, and I had always liked her style. Anyway. I DONE GOT TO MEET HER. Frickin' AWESOME. We hung out on Halloween, and geeked it up hard core. Loveit.

Other than that, I've been keeping busy running the EOC as best I can without a friggin' SCANNER, and... oh yeah. Back in school, for a quick stint to get an Associates. Because. Y'know. School was so much fun the FIRST time round. I am, actually, really enjoying myself this time. Probably because I'm studying what I always wanted to study in the FIRST place.

That's most of what I've been up to. Not that y'all care, but there you have it anyway :B I'm looking forward to getting back into posting EE asap, so please just bare with ma liiiiittle longer while I get my hands on a scanner.

On my continuing (sort of) inactivity

Journal Entry: Wed May 26, 2010, 4:33 AM

I know, I know, I've been a bad artist. I've posted, like- jack all recently. My apologies. I've had an influx of "real life" again though, as it happens. Some of it is annoying- like preparing to move over the ocean... again. Only this time I have to deal with the government. Because. Y'know. They're my boss now. :/ I mean- Yaaay for a government paycheck and all, but oh my god, the red tape in getting out o.o
Some of it is just... life. Like catching the plague from my students. Oh joy, oh rapture.
Some of it is good- like preparing for rainrach coming to visit me.

Oh yes. You read correctly. :iconrainrach: the one and only, is coming ALL the way to Japan. To see ME. not you. She will be HERE in less than 24 hours, and we are going to ROCK THE HELL out of Japan. It's going to be pretty intense. INTENSELY AWESOME, that is.

She's taking me to Tokyo Disney for my birthday :iconiloveyouplz:

In my down time, though, I've been scripting for EE, and I plan on getting back into the swing of things soon! I appreciate folks sticking with me and all.






RAIN IS COMING TO VISIT ME IN JAPAN HO MAH GAWD
SO FREAKING EXCITED
Like... seriously. You people have no idea the amount of awesome this lady carries with her at all time. I have looked her in the face, and her sheer beauty and talent is blinding. It's like looking into the face of 10,000 suns. 10,000 suns who ARE MAH FRIEND.


my birthday is may 30. PRESENTS? 8D?




Memage!


I don't feel like posting the entire meme again, but :iconrachelillustrates: deserves a feature anyway ^0^ She's all sorts of awesome, and I have always always always just totally loved her style. I wish I could make such swoopy lines and delisicious colour like her. o.o

On Combo Attacks, Llamas and Memes

Journal Entry: Fri Apr 2, 2010, 1:55 AM
Image by the Great and Talented Steven E. Gordon




First of all: I like the Llama Pins! I would like a special Llama. Won't you please give me a Llama? They're free to giiiiive :D
Llama Whore by PatrickRuegheimer


That out of the way... Continuing with my trend of asking other people to do my thinking for me being interested in the opinions of others, I am, once again, curious. Of aaaaall the Evo characters out there, what sort of combo attacks do you think there are? For example, most people are familiar with the "Fastball Special." That would be a Wolverine-Colossus combo attack, in which Colossus launches the slashing furry what it is Wolverine at a target. Ouch.

I'm wondering though- what OTHER combo attacks could there be. What combo attacks would you LIKE to see? What would you call them?

Telll meeeeeeee.





Memage!

I done stole this from the most excellent and awesome :iconrainrach:

On Assigning a Numeral Value

Journal Entry: Sat Mar 27, 2010, 4:53 AM
Image by the Great and Talented Steven E. Gordon




Just because I'm curious... What sort of numbers would YOU, gentle page viewer, give our lovely Evo cast? It's always difficult to find a base line, I think, when you're starting from NOTHING, and the numbers are arbitrary. Is 10 high, or is 100? You don't know until you have other characters to compare them with, and then- what numbers do you assign THAT character? And then there's balancing to take into consideration... It's not very fair to give one character all stats that are maxed out, and another character shit stats. Though that may be how things are, generally, for now, I'm trying to keep things even. So if one character has crap for strength, maybe they make up for it with an impressive defensive skill, or high power damage. Or maybe they have a High power damage, but it strikes at random.


This question is completely impromptu, and has nothing whatsoever to do with any video game that I may or may not be programming. CLEARLY. Totally. 100%. >_>

So. If you had to assign the following stats to the basic cast of Evo... what sort of numbers would you give out?
Note: If I were programming a game, and I'M NOT SAYING I AM, but if I were, these would not be the only stats involved. These would be simply a starting point, to work forward. If I were programming a game, I might say more stats will eventually be programmed in. BUT I'M NOT SAYING ANYTHING.

Hit Points
Attack (How hard they could conceivably punch someone)
Power (How OFTEN they can use their mutant abilities)
Defense (How hard they are to hit)
<img src="fc09.deviantart.net/fs71/f/201…"  width="420"/>
Yeah.... yeah... totally impromptu... >_>

On Needing Assistance

Journal Entry: Fri Mar 5, 2010, 7:04 PM
Image by the Great and Talented Steven E. Gordon




So in some of my (nonexistent) free time, I've been working on this project. Never you mind what it is. Just know it involves sprites. X-men Evo sprites. And a LOT of them.

I enjoy spriting, but it's not really my FAVOURITE thing to do. Especially when the other part of this project is really what I want to be focusing on. So I'm wondering if there's anyone out there who DOES enjoy spriting, and would be willing to help me? I could always go to one of the spriting coms, and beg there, but I thought I'd look here, first.

For now, what I need are sprites of these guys
<img src="fc09.deviantart.net/fs71/f/201…"  width="420"/>

    And I need them in the following poses:
  • Frontal
  • Facing the side (left or right, it doesn't matter, I can always flip horizontal to get the direction I need)
  • A general attack pose
  • A general "I'm being hit! :O" pose

Sort of like this:



Sooooooo.... any takers? I may ask over at the EOC, as well. Eventually I'll need the FULL cast sprited, but for now- just these guys.

I'm using Sailor Moon: Another RPG as my bases, and you can find those all over the net, but a good place to start is here: www.chronomorphosis.com/azha/

On Shoes and Ships and Sealing-wax

Journal Entry: Fri Jan 8, 2010, 8:06 PM
Image by the Great and Talented Steven E. Gordon


Back in the Weeaboo Holy Land, hating the Japanese inability to properly insulate their homes (except you, Hokkaido. You're coo' ). And I felt- TIME FOR A NEW JOURNAL. Not only because calenders are no longer for sale, but because there needs to be some re-capping. >d

Staying with :iconrainrach: and :iconjcrobin: was AMAZING. I got to meet JC's friend :iconstars-and-garters: who is freakin' awesome, and my GOD. The adventures we had. The Things Rain has seen me do. NO ONE ELSE has gotten me to do these things during a first-meeting. I can only hope they were able to properly clean up that poor chair after I left, and that they didn't throw out the blood. And JC- JC took me to her theater, and let me get up on stage with them. AWESOME. I will never forget- Professor X as an exotic dancer. *sigh*

But all of that pales in comparison to the Evo-a-Thon, and the accompanying Evo Drinking Game. I should preface this with statement that drinking games are a BAD idea, as they take the entire drinking thing out of your control, and though you CAN stop whenever you want... you probably won't.

Case in point: Me. Iiiiiiiiii got... we shall say "Smashed." Smashed seems like a good word for it. To the point where I actually said the word "Ascohol" in COMPLETE SERIOUSNESS. Also: "My fuck is shitted." Yeah. How do I know this?

BECAUSE WE TOOK VIDEO.

That's right. There is video EVIDENCE of my retardation. Part of me really wants to put it on youtube, and the other, more sober part of me goes "DEAR LORD. LOOK AT HOW YOU LOOK. DO YOU REALLY WANT THAT ON THE NET?" so I'll probably put it up under "private" and make you subsribe to be able to see it. Hah. Because anyone cares that much.

But yes. In the end we had 9 drinking conditions:
*Professor X is a DICK
*Lance crotch shots
*Girls acting like whores
*Kurt getting KOed
*Catch phrases
*Property damage
*Freddy NOT losing his chill
*Unnecessary characters
*Cheesy endings

Annnnnd looking at that list, we should have KNOWN. Yet really. I was the only one who got smashed. ON CAMERA at least. Rain, interestingly enough, doesn't show up on film (We think it's due to the lack of a soul) and JC has the drinking tolerance of a freakin' High School Football player, so REALLY. It's just me being an idiot.

Rain is in possession of the final tallies, but... yeah. It's pretty staggering. There are portions of the evening that I DO NOT REMEMBER.



Awesome.






In other news- ANYONE WANT A FREAKIN' CALENDER? Rain and I each have an extra (the proof from our printings), and we want to give them away as contest prizes, but we're not sure what kind of contests to run. WE NEED FREAKIN' SUGGESTIONS. Gimmie.






From here on down is bitching. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.

<bitchy rant #385924>
On another, mostly unrelated topic- What is it about clubs that make people think they're SO EASY to run? Seriously. Running a club takes a LOT of time, and no small effort if you actually want it to have any tiny modicum of success. Getting members, keeping those members ACTIVE, having contests and activities that are fun and engaging? NOT SO EASY, ACTUALLY.
And then- people have the NERVE to contact you saying "Hey! We're just starting up a club of our own, you should affiliate with us! 8D"

How to put this nicely.


NO.


I work my ASS off to have a successful club. And when I get a note on my wall or whatever saying "Hey! People should pay attention to MY club!" it's REALLY annoying. All the other club owners I talk to agree. You know how I got my club to where it is today? Fun contests that run ON TIME (though... I realize recently this is debatable -_-) and by sending out notes. A LOT. OF NOTES. Asking politely if people were interested in joining. At least 100 members at EOC are there because I sent out 500 notes. I PUT THE WORK IN. And you just want to snipe my members? I DON'T THINK SO.

I am VERY particular about my affiliations. I don't ask anyone to affiliate with me because I'm confident in advertisement by members, and my clubs own staying power. If you DO want to affiliate with me, you better have a damn good club, because I'm really. Fucking. Particular. Again- all my club-operating friends agree u.u And we do talk about it. A lot.

I just recently re-opened the Wanda Club, to try out this new Group thing, and see if it's something I want for the EOC, and when I did, I found notes all over the wall, and in the inbox. The EOC gets smacked with this every now and again too.

ITS OBNOXIOUS.


STOP IT.



</bitchy rant #385924>






Oh, and one last thing. In the last 3 months while my computer's been kaputz, I haven't been checking any messages. I'm going to be clearing the 200+ deviations and 1200+ messages, so if there was anything you REALLY wanted me to see or comment on, let me know, because it's GETTIN' BALEETUDED, BABY.

On Being Back in the US(s)A

Journal Entry: Wed Dec 16, 2009, 10:12 AM
Image by the Great and Talented Steven E. Gordon


Well that's been up long enough, wouldn't you say? Time for something new. I'm currently in LA, acting the part of a latchkey kid of :iconrainrach: and :iconjcrobin: (Daddy and Mommy don't love me enough to take time off for me T^ T). We've been having awesome adventures so far, fighting dinosaurs, eating tacos, stealing shopping carts from homeless men, going shopping, meeting :iconstars-and-garters: and another DA-er whos SN I don't know, saving the planet, skipping through things that I TOTALLY NEED TO SEE, learning about makeup, and just generally frolicking through LA like Godzilla through Tokyo. Soon... very soon... we will partake of great amounts of alcohol, while talking our way through X-men: Evolution. IT SHALL BE MAGICAL.

In the meanwhile- I have updates for the club, but lack a computer with which to DO them, which is frustrating. I'll be in MT soon enough though... hopefully I'll be able to get stuff done before then, but it IS NOT LOOKING VERY LIKELY. Y ^ Y

Also: Buy a calendar.




2010 Calendar

Stolen from JC's Journal


EDIT: CALENDER ORDERS NOW CLOSED!!!

Yup, folks, it's that time again! X-MEN EVOLUTION CALENDAR TIME!

What?

Gasp?

Can it be true?

The mesiah has come?

Yes, my friends, he has come! In the form of the most perfect calendar ever created and JUST in time for the holidays!

:iconblazerocket: and I bled, sweat, cried, and giggled a little over this masterpiece; slaved over by the top 12 Evo artists in the entire fandom, hand-picked at the time of juciestness to lend their gifts to this project. By purchasing an Evo calendar, you'll be privy to hot-off-the-presses-in-your-hand-one-of-a-kind artwork by such incredible talents as :iconjarofloosescrews:, :iconrainrach:, :iconprincefala:, and :iconmeltedpeep: just to name a sparkling few! These beauties and many, many, many more will spend month after month in your home or work space, filling your your life with bright, X-Men Evolution related joy! What better way to be that much closer to your fandom?

Now I bet you're sitting there, barely able to keep your butt from squirming off your seat, reaching for your life savings but HOLD ON FRIEND! Put that hand down! Where I can see it, please. You're probably thinking you'll need a fortune to obtain something more valuable than the Holy Grail but you, good sir, are WRONG! SO WRONG! You better get to a restroom before your bladder releases uncontrollably because these calendars are being sold for not $100 not $50 but $20 ($24 overseas). That small explosion you just heard was the logical portion of your brain BEING BLOWN APART from disbelief! Just to make sure it won't grow back I will repeat!: $20 ($24 overseas)!

Let me spell this out for you: For $20 ($24 overseas) you will be getting 12 full color images by 12 amazing artists of 20+ of your favorite characters from your favorite show on this planet! AND IT'S A CALENDAR! It's like getting a calendar AND 12 commissioned images for only $20 ($24 overseas)! That's AT MOST $2 per FULL COLOR, FULL SHADING, COMPUTER ENHANCED PICTURE MASTERPIECE! THAT'S A STEAL, PEOPLE! A STEAL! MY CAPS KEY CAN'T TAKE IT!

And if you can't believe this can be real I will PROVE YOU WRONG AGAIN. I have a SAMPLE of the genius you will be bringing into your homes! HERE: jcrobin.deviantart.com/art/Evo…

I can see you have nothing more to say because this MASTERTUDE CANNOT BE DENIED!

And as if there was any of your brain left after all of this here's ANOTHER tid bit for you: All proceeds cover the production and shipping and handling of these calendars! Not a CENT goes into the creators coffers! So why would these brilliant artists lend their talent for NOTHING? OUT OF LOVE, my friends. OUT OF LOVE!

So, if you want to give your love to the cause, note me and say "JC! I WANT A CALENDAR!" All payments will be done through paypal, all details given after you note me with "JC! I WANT A CALENDAR!" and hopefully something a little more like a question about how I'm doing or something about the weather and DEFINITELY your address so we know where to send it to. Otherwise...I mean....you can pay for it but if I don't know where I'm sending it...well I've just got myself yet ANOTHER copy of AWESOME IN TANGIBLE FORM...and your money. ;)

WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?!
