THERE’S TIMES WHEN I WANT A RUSTIC CABIN IN THE WOODS AWAY FROM ALL SOCIETY
THEN THERE’S TIMES WHEN I WANT A MODERN ASS HOUSE
THEN I’M LIKE I’LL ACCEPT NOTHING MORE THAN A VICTORIAN MANOR
THEN I WANT A PENTHOUSE IN THE MIDDLE OF NEW YORK
THEN I WANT ONE OF THOSE HOUSE MADE OUT SHIPPING CONTAINERS
THEN I WANT A FRENCH CHATEAU
BUT I ALSO WANT A TREE HOUSE
AND A LITTLE COTTAGE ON THE OCEAN
HOUSES ARE SO COOL
Holy balls I looked into my old external drive and dug up this picture…
1. So, for like the 12-24 people that aren’t familiar with my life on Gaiaonline or my High School Career, I did a ton of Online roleplaying back in the day, and I frequented a particular Breedables shop called Endgame.
Basic premise of the RP was that the world was slowly ending, and the gods were to pick children to be their avatars to play game in which the winner would become gods in a new pantheon. It was kind of a mix between Battle Royale and American Gods(?). Writ was an avatar of Coyote, the Native American Trickster god.
2. Think of the chaotic neutral shenanigans that you get into playing D&D, that is Writ in a nutshell, though I would argue that he was more chaotic good.
3. Writ kinda had a pretty good life before all the godly business, his parents were both liberal new-age-ish hippie types that pretty much let him do whatever he wanted, which pretty much meant he was always out alone in the street, collecting plots and forging rivalries and alliances with other players. He was also incredibly stupid, and kinda bratty, no doubt from his parents’ loose belief that school was just another tool of “The Man”
4. He was a pretty wild kid, which led to him being a wild shapeshifting teenager, to a crazy vomit-all-over-the-spirits-of-the-dead adult. He was a drunkard, arsonist (I think? I vaguely remember explosions), and all around troublemaker for the Blacksuits. (Shadowy, goverment organization with a hand in the game).
5. He had a rivalry with Ciro, which “heated” up (Ahaha because he controls fire) a couple of times. Ciro was the only person Writ hated with a passion, considering that they were polar opposites, it was no surprise.
6. He probably wouldn’t have openly admitted it, but he was totally bisexual.
7. He had made alliances with various godlings… Sort of. It seemed that there was a general consensus that he was harmless so long as you locked up the liquor cabinet and kept him away from matches.
8. I was considering on giving Writ some psudo-immortality before the indefinite hiatus.
See, a recurring theme in Coyote stories is that about 75% of the time, Coyote ends up maimed, humiliated, or killed in some sort of manner. This constantly getting killed business was negated by his brother, Fox, being able to bring Coyote back from the dead by leaping over his body three times.
Writ’s version of immortality would’ve been that he would be able to come back to life as long as his corpse wasn’t disintegrated. The downside would be he would lose a large chunk of his memory in the process, dooming him to be the trickster that would never learn, making the same mistakes over and over again.
9. Going on that, his immortality would become the stuff of urban legends, and in the coming years, his presence would be imbued within the city’s mythology, which would’ve eventually led to some sort of flashy ascension of some kind.
10. He would’ve been a god of spontaneous inspiration and learning— the patron god of thieves, drunkards, artists, and scientists, His blessing would’ve came in the form of sudden brilliance, sharp wit, and a silver tongue, all at the price of a devotee’s sanity.
Also ask “OC?” And I’ll tell you a bunch of stuff about one if my OCs
This is actually a fair amount of fun and goodness knows I enjoy holding forth about characters I enjoy.
No sweat if you send me a character and I don’t know them. I’ll either say “I don’t know” or make something up about them based on what I learned about them from tumblr.
This is actually one of the more fun memes.
I have another Ayano one coming up, so I’ll do OC.
- An OC I made back in middle school for a gaia online shop. It took place in a nearly post-apocalyptic world, and most everything was in shambles. Gods would pick kids to be their avatars in a battle royal (It would cause too much destruction if the gods themselves fought).
- Ciro’s god was Shamash, god of the sun and justice. He hated his god, and would actually take steps to defy him (Ripping out his own eyes!)
- Before he was chosen for the game, he was a troubled youth that was nearly constantly in therapy. His parents were stiff, thoughtless, upper-middle class, and they didn’t accept any responsibility for their son’s actions. He hated them, and ran away as soon as he could.
- He originally was with a girl named Crow, who was Morrigan’s avatar. The two had a very “Fuck the police, drugs and rock and roll” relationship, but Crow eventually cheated on him and left him.
- He ran into a referee of the game, named Echo, and fell for her. Echo was mostly mute (She could only repeat the sentence said right before), and overly sweet, but she balanced him out. The two were SUPER cute, but then she was brutally murdered by another player.
- Following this, he became and alcoholic and got into drugs. He stopped caring too much about the game.
- One of the more powerful players because of his control of fire, Ciro didn’t spend much time hunting out players, but if he encountered them, he would attack on “Sight” (hahaha he’s blind)
- Tezcatlipoca’s avatar, Vale, found him, and the two forged a very… interesting bond. Ciro would help physically fight with Vale, and Vale would act as Ciro’s maid and mother, helping him deal with his crippling alcoholism.
- Ciro finally died in a fight with a boy who fought with water. The two had been almost friends for quite some time, but when Ciro found out that the boy was gay, he attacked him. He lost.
- Ciro was the first character I made specifically to be an antagonist. I gave him traits I hated in people to make him a miserable and easily-hated character, and he’s by far my favorite OC that I have ever made.
