Baby puppy and his watermelon
Hi Coffee, I think this is some concept-ish art you’d want to see.
New OC? Persona? Yeessss. I recycled her name from an old Crystal Chronicles fanfic I wrote once upon a time (and of course never finished).
» Alias: “The Armory”
» Female, aged 24
» Height: 5’6”
» Weight: ~140lbs
» Rank: Guildmaster
» Eye Color: Mauve
» Hair Color: Dark Violet
» Magic: Demons’ Arsenal
Jerdani is, in the simplest terms, kind of a derp. The effects of her magic, “Demons’ Arsenal”, render her a bit soulless at times, so she seems to be in a catatonic, daydreaming daze a lot in her downtime. She’s a relaxed, laid-back kind of person, taking things at her own slow pace.
COMPLETELY different in battle though. Demons’ Arsenal is a magic system that turns Jerdani’s inner demons into beings with actual forms, and also allows her to create weapons associated with these demons. She summons these demons into her consciousness and uses the weapons and battle abilities associated with them. As she’s able to summon demons consecutively, she can fluidly switch between evasive, defensive, and offensive styles of battle, depending on the weapon. All she needs to do is say the name of the demon she wants.
Of course, this does mean silencing her in any way would render her Arsenal useless. Also, any anti-demon energies can suppress the Arsenal.
At these moments, Jerdani has one trump card, one last weapon that lies outside the Arsenal.
Mabui, the Origin Lance.
This lance has been in Jerdani’s possession since the moment she was born, and she can wield it at any given moment. She’s an expert with this lance, and its appearance is the only time Jerdani actually seems to come alive. Mabui can only be wielded for 15 minutes at most, though, before it retreats on its own. While using Mabui, Jerdani can use all of the battle abilities associated with her other weapons.
Back to these other weapons, though, the demons in her Arsenal are all very loyal to Jerdani, and will even appear in her shadow to communicate with the 3rd dimension. Some of the most-used demons have developed the ability to temporarily appear in the 3rd dimension as well, if only for a short while.
Because each demon is a separate entity, over the course of extended combat, each fresh summon will gradually inhibit Jerdani’s pain receptors, as damage to Jerdani is damage only to the demon currently summoned. So unless her Arsenal warns her of her body’s situation, she can keep fighting until she drops dead. Too many summons will also drain her.
Currently, the weapons in her Arsenal include:
» Twin scimitars, associated with Verus, a wolf demon.
» A scythe, associated with Erenus, a tree sprite demon.
» Bladed fans, associated with Thania and Uruk, Naga twin sisters.
» A nodachi, associated with Muroma, a moon spirit.
» A battleaxe, associated with Dwarf, a demon bear.
» A chain whip, associated with Kerlus, a cobra demon.
» A Japanese staff, associated with Yuta, a sea dragon.
And then of course, Mabui, a lance lying outside the Arsenal.
Nope! I didn’t reblog that ask thingy but I’m happy to answer them!
Artemis: Favourite animal?
Good question! I actually really don’t know. I like a lot of animals in general, really! Manatees, otters, rabbits, horses, snakes, wolves, foxes, falcons…There’s really too many for me to decide what my favorite is.
Hades: If you could meet a person from history, who would it be and why?
Well, considering Brian Jacques has recently passed, and considering his Redwall series were my childhood’s lifeline, AND also considering I’ve always wanted to meet him, I’d definitely venture to Hades to talk to Brian Jacques. I don’t even need to know the entire mythos of Redwall anymore; I just want to talk about his writing and his keen attention to detail over a nice cup of tea.
Zeus: If you ruled the world, what would you change?
Another difficult question. Half of me wants to say “nothing”, just to sit back and watch the world burn. Or really, just to watch humans continue to dash themselves into oblivion.
Another part of me, however, would want to change the societal concerns we have today. Because that’s not something even a god can change overnight, I think I’d want to encourage some sort of Renaissance of any and all arts across the entire globe. I have an entire thought process on this, but I think I’ll refrain from writing THAT essay for now. xD
If I can get all of the classes I need between next fall quarter 2013 to spring quarter 2014, I can graduate with my creative writing degree in the spring.
But my plans need to work perfectly for this.
Why hello, Anxiety, it’s been a while since last we chatted, yes? Sit down, have some tea. You’re a guest here at least until May 21st. Just try not to knock over the china, okay? Last time you made such a horrible mess of things and it took me a full week to clean up after you.
It’s a wonder I still forgive you, Anxiety, because you made such a lasting impression the last time you visited.
Just keep it to constant palpitations and the occasional nightmare, and we’ll be on good terms, okay?
1. Put your iTunes on shuffle. Give me the first 6 songs that pop up.
Shit, and my sister just used my iTunes account to buy a bunch of Vocaloid songs. This is me praying nothing embarrassing comes up.
The Lollercaust of Thought
Black Out City (ft. Anamanaguchi) - BIT.TRIP RUNNER OST
The Bottom Feeders - Darren Korb, Bastion OST
Gust of Heir - Homestuck Vol. 8
If It Isn’t Love - New Edition
Glimpse of Winter - Approaching Nirvana
I’m surprised at the sudden appearance of New Edition, but I do recommend that music video for 80s-style African American boy band shenanigans. Also, I can’t find a good video for The Lollercaust of Thought. You can find it on Youtube but it’s Guitar Hero stuff, if you’re okay with the endless clacks and fake lightning strikes of Star Power.
But yessss my sister’s Vocaloid music didn’t show.
3. Grab the nearest book to you, turn to page 23, give me line 17.
“17. Omit needless words”
No I’m serious, that’s around where line 17 is on page 23 in Strunk and White’s The Elements of Style.
21. Stick your right arm out; what do you touch first? Do the same with your left.
Right: A big eraser that eternally smells like fake apples.
Left: AATR 3 script, all marked up in red, ready to be typed.
42. You are at the doctor’s office and she has just informed you that you have approximately one month to live. a) Do you tell anyone/everyone you are going to die? b) What do you do with your remaining days? c) Would you be afraid?
a) I’d tell only my closest friends and family. Beyond that, I’d remain silent about it and act like nothing’s wrong. So I wouldn’t post it to Tumblr or Facebook or deviantART or whatever.
b) With my last days, I’d do my best to have as much fun as possible. Meet the people I want to meet and hang out with them. I’d also bust my ass trying to finish a book or a chapbook, and then even try to get it published? Oh, and I’d also try to finish Arcana. That’s a story I don’t want to leave unfinished.
c) Nah, I wouldn’t be afraid at all. :) As depressing as it may sound, I actually look forward to dying. What’s beyond the current sphere of consciousness? I’m interested to know.
51. What is your current desktop picture?
I’m due for a change though, just dunno to what yet.
52. If you could press a button and make anyone in the world instantaneously explode, who would it be?
No one. I dislike and despise people, but I can never hate people to the point I want them dead, especially in a grisly death like that. Hatred leaves a bitter and sour taste in my throat, see. I’d rather not feed it.
56. You can erase any horrible experience from your past. What will it be?
This means you would be okay with me changing myself.
That said, I wouldn’t change anything that happened. I complain a lot about my dad and other frustrations involving him, but I really wouldn’t want my life any other way. It’s what created the me that is here now.
Already answered 8, yo. Hit me with another question if you’d like.
16. Do you have a collection of anything?
WELL. I do have the entire One Piece comic book series so far. I used to collect state quarters but that fell through many years ago. Also, my grandmother’s upkeeping a collection of super expensive collectible Barbie dolls…Some of those designs are great, y’know.
29. Do you have any obsessions right now?
One Piece will always be my obsession. But I’m not a rabid fan either, don’t worry. Beyond that, no, I don’t really have much to be obsessed with. A lot of writing and Arcana, I guess, but I don’t usually talk forever about them, do I? 8I
43. What’s a song that always makes you happy when you hear it?
Mermaid (ft. Anamanaguchi) from BIT.TRIP RUNNER
…I think. There are too many songs in the world.
59. Ever been on a plane?
Indeed I have! Multiple times too. I was born in Okinawa, after all, so I took the plane from there to North Carolina when I was very young. I flew back to Okinawa for vacation in 3rd grade. I’ve flown to Maryland to visit family. And then I take the plane back and forth between home and university. c:
8. If you are outside, what are you most likely doing?
Most likely, I’m walking to class. Ehehe. If not class, then I’m going to the store for groceries and other necessities. And if not that, then I’m heading to the mall for recreational shopping and the arcade. ;D
14. Who is your celebrity crush?
Hmmm! Usually I’d default to Jensen Ackles or RDJ or Chris Hemsworth, but like, I don’t really crush on them? I like ‘em, yes, but I don’t actually crush on them or any other celebrity in general. It’s extremely improbable that I would go watch a movie, for instance, to see a certain actor. I’d go to a movie to watch the freakin’ movie.
27. What was the last movie you saw?
Uhhh…I was gonna watch Iron Man 3 today but that doesn’t look probable, soooo…The last movie I watched was The Croods. (Did anyone else notice the marching band music for the hunting scene? I had to stop myself from dancing/marking time during that scene.)
45. How can I win your heart?
Oh Rinny. xD
Just be your usual, awesome, cool you, I guess. And also be honest. I’ll come to appreciate that, and I’ll also notice patterns to “you”, and I’ll come to appreciate those patterns as well. c: ‘Tis more of a matter of luck with me. |D Whether that’s good luck or bad luck, I leave to you to determine.
58. You just got a free plane ticket to anywhere. You have to depart right now. Where are you gonna go?
Take me home! Take me to Okinawa, please! xD
» Successfully finished the shitty first draft and is now revising like crazy.
» Is hearing all the dialogue in Japanese.
DAMMIT I CAN’T WIN.
I’m traveling until Monday but I wanted to hop on and say some things because its Mother’s Day.
There’s going to be a lot of imagery about families going around and I just to say this:
You’re not obligated to love your family. It’s not bad if you aren’t close to them. It’s okay to hate and be angry at people who hurt you. It’s okay to cut people out of your life, and that does not make you a bad person.
To all of you dealing with stressful or rough situations I wish you all the best and I want you to know you’re not alone.
