I feel like one of my characters...

So, you know how you sometimes have a character, and you break them down so that they reveal their true feelings?
So that their hidden fears and emotions aren't a secret anymore?
How there's that one big issue your character has, and they're forced to face it?
Well... that just happened to me...

I got upset about something my sister said... and I asked my dad about it... he spent a long time explaining to me, making me do silly things, all on the grounds that I always think people are judging me.  I'm always defensive, and he pointed out that it has a bad effect on me, and that really needed to change... he was trying to help, but in the end, I was still defensive and told him it was because of how people were always judging me in Junior High; that he didn't understand what that felt like.
...it seems he was waiting to hear that all along.
And now I know how my characters feel when they're manipulated like that.

...in the past I've always had no shame in manipulating and torturing my characters... but I think I may try to be nicer and more considerate towards them from now on.

And it makes me think... how strange how something as simple is bullying can affect a person on that level... I'll have to keep that in mind with my characters...

Anyway, thought I'd share this experience... not much of a vent since I'm over it now, so I think it's ok.

So... which one of my characters should I talk to first? <w<

Rise of the Fallen Sketches 1 by PancakeShiners
Rise of the Fallen Sketches 1
So I had a really hard time sleeping last night... and this morning... lD So I sketched some of my RotF characters!

Funny how Pokemon art is the only thing I'm comfortable uploading as sketches... anything else needs to be colored, or it's not worthy.

You guys will remember Rosie as a Pikachu! Due to the species being on the list, I would have to change her species... and I decided that I'll use her for the opening event.  She has a very timid nature, and Treecko is the timid species, so that's her new species.  And those who have known me long enough probably KNOW that I'll be evolving her later on, haha!
...those people I lost contact with though.
She's using an Energy Ball to light up the dark future.

And Felicity sometimes uses Psychic out of battle (within reason) and this is one example.  Saw that in the anime, so I figured it was legit.  Still working the kinks out of that... we may need a new RotF rule.  lD

And then Blake just being adorable! His partner, Alei the Leafeon, is afraid of Houndooms... therefore, he always tries to be cute to help her understand that not all Houndooms and Houndours are mean.  :3

Now I must see if my body will let me sleep.  T_T

EDIT: Found a name YESSS

EDIT: I just realized I messed up his leg marking on the third image.  Oh well, this isn't the finished product anyway, haha

NOTE: If he was a pure Balinese, he would look like the one on the top! But he's not, so...

So, I'm using this cat for a Warriors group I have my eyes on, TheClansoftheValley 
Yeah, I know he'll be an apprentice.  He's a Balinese/Maine Coon cross (so he won't look like this exactly) but I'm not sure on his name or his clan yet... I was hoping I could get some help with that... heh...
He's based off of this character.  I'm reincarnating him, because I love him and he deserves it.
...I love Eve too of course, but nah.

I'm not sure on his history yet, exactly... that's another thing I'm not good at when it comes to Warriors characters... >.< Well... we'll just have to see...

Anyway, just wanted to get this out before I go to sleep tonight.  When I'm not sure about a character, sometimes bases help.

RotF: Not a Monster... by PancakeShiners
RotF: Not a Monster...
So I was reading a dramatic TLK comic.  Which I usually avoid but it was just so addicting.
Anyway, I felt like drawing something, and Felicity popped up.  Keep in mind with her fur tufts, I did not use a reference, and I also tend to bend the original Espurr style so I can have fun with my character.

This is nothing new.  I'm using the whole Espurr thing as a partial background for Fel, and her you can see her younger self, before she was all tough, hardened, serious, and somewhat manipulating... haha.
The only one who knows she was once like this is Slash, and let us all hope that he never tells anyone.
Speaking of which, cusackanne, we need to start working out their shared history... hehe

If you want a little more information, Felicity grew up in the closest thing to a community that existed often in the Planet's Paralysis... they didn't usually last more than a decade though, and those were the lucky ones.  The members were offered a home and protection, but had to go searching for food on their own, and many children had to do so at an early age too... that was how the world worked as a general rule.  Her egg was found by the group, but due to her species' reputation she was rather isolated and had a major impact on the baby Pokemon, which helped molded her into what she is today, a Pokemon who knows what she wants, takes it for herself; not to the point of stealing, but she's not going to dwell on hopes and dreams, or rely on others to help her.  The world used to belong to those who helped themselves, and it didn't do to hope or have faith.  She still has that mindset, and will probably ALWAYS have it.  Felicity probably would have become a terrible, if not Primal Pokemon if it weren't for her friend Slash.

If anyone's wondering, yes, this is completely legit when it comes to RotF.  Because of the nature of the Planet's Paralysis, it's extremely difficult to have a happy backstory, and many characters are going to be emotionally scarred by their experiences.  Naturally, however, I as an admin will try to stop people from going too overboard with this.

It's kinda strange though... I just realized how much my RotF characters mean to me, and why.  I pour my heart and soul into these characters, with very little effort... they have very deep and complex relationships.  They were created specifically FOR Rise of the Fallen.  My EBC characters aren't like that at all.  They're more like... copies.  Stolen personalities and histories (from my own characters, but still), and most of their relationships and stuff aren't very strong either.  That's probably why they aren't as special to me.  That and I'm really used to and comfortable with the PMD world... and I can draw Pokemon a lot better than cats.  It gets frustrating at times.  Just saying.  lD

Anyway, I've stayed up till 5:00 which was dumb but, you know... it happens.
So just take this and LET ME SLEEP.
Loading...
So I keep tabs on how many views RotF gets each day, as well as any new people who visit because I'm weird like that.
And we got 16 so far today.
WHAT THE HECK.  HOW?!?! D8

heeeeyyy Pannnn?

if it really isn't much trouble
could I please change the specie of my eeveelution character? |D;
I have so much trouble drawing Eevee and found that Espeon is a bit easier for me.

If not then that's fine~ I understand you saying no, I have had this Eevee slot for awhile now...and this is a bit sudden asking you.
