    • What is the difference betweening copying, and inspiration?

      6 years ago

      DeadlyTiger1

      Before I start, I would just like to say in no way am I looking for pity or an answer to this post. I only wish to get these thoughts out of my head, and onto a wall.

      As some of you know I am a writer, or at least I want to be. One of my greatest paranoia in writing is that I will be accused of copying something that has either inspired me, or has had similar roots as my story. Such as mythology roots. I am terrified to do anything that the God of War franchise has already done because of an irrational fear of comparison. And this fear, or paranoia cripples me. It's like being dragged down by an anchor, and no matter how hard I try, I can't break the rope that binds me to it.

      Part of me then thinks of the idea that originality is dead, and all stories are just copies of one another with just slight mortification taken from different stories. This then just makes me feel even more depressed.

      I understand that there is always going to be that guy who thinks that X copied Y because both the antagonist of each story hates ice cream, and wears silly hat, but for whatever reason I feel like this is going to be the majority of the responses to my work. It's not even that I'm afraid of criticism, or hate. I know I can take the negative opinions, and the venom.

    • Character Motivation, and...stuff

      6 years ago

      DeadlyTiger1

      I feel like this is a deserving topic to talk about seeing how it's currently the river I'm trying to build a bridge over, and just how important it can be to a story, or character.

      Let's take Bane, and the Joker from the last two Batman movies as our examples. All through out "the Dark Knight" the Joker's motives were clear. He wanted to prove that given the right circumstance, we'd all shove each other off a cliff to save our own skin. But what did Bane want to do? At one point in the film he says he's Gotham's reckoning, like he's going to make the city pay for something it did. But then later on, he says he wants to save Gotham by giving it back to the people. I guess you could say that the reason for this is because Bane wasn't actually the one holding the cards, and instead it was that girl who had made the plan, making Bane just her figure head. The point that I'm trying to make is that by not defining Bane's motivations from the start, that it actually worsened the movie. That is for me at the least.

      Now, why am I talking about this? Well, it's actually quite selfish in a way... I'm hoping that by talking about good, and bad character motivations that, somehow, I will gain inspiration to actually write good reasons for my character to do the things that they do, instead of just for plot convenience. Because let me tell you what, I have been working on this book in some shape or form for the past five years already, and by now you'd think I'd have at least half of the book written by now, and I don't even have that. And it truly depresses me, it's not even like I don't know where I want to take the characters. I just don't know where to start, or how to start. It's like I have this giant marble block in front of me, and I know what I want the sculpture to look like, but I don't know what to work on first. Should I chisel out its head first? Maybe one of the arms...If it's a girl should I put nipples on the boobs, and then how big do you make the breasts? And nobody likes beach ball sized ta-tas, everyone thinks that they will, but nobody wants that.

      And now this journal has nothing to do with character development, or motivation, and I have completely lost my train of thought, so just have this pic.

    • Bionicle's lore

      6 years ago

      DeadlyTiger1

      Did anyone ever actually pay attention to the Bionicle's lore? That shit was dark! The primmest of story always dealt with God, and Satan, and that the two were brothers. Of curse LEGO didn't actually call them by those name, but rather Mata Nui, and Makuta respectfully, but you get the point. The story for the first toy line was basically that Makuta was just corrupting the island's animals into attacking the inhabitants, and it actually doesn't take a dark turn until around the second toy line when it gets explained that Makuta has put his brother into a coma, and that the Toas had to save him. Soon after that the conflict escalate that Mata Nui is not just in a coma, but is actually slowly dying, and that our heroes have to find this ancient relic that will restore his immortality, or everything will go to hell in a hand basket.

      And if that not enough, there is a mountain in the Bionicle's universe which is described to always be in the shadows, and that God's love has never touched it. How metal is that? In another toy line, the villains use these crossbows that launch these little leech suckers thing, and that the reason behind it is because the leeches will literately suck the life force from its victim.

      LEGO also very blatantly kills off the original cast, and even had Tahu's mask, or helmet just hanging in a tree with cracks in it. In that same toy line, the villains are described as Toa hunters. Who each one of them have their own kill counts on multiple heroes.

      And you know what? I fucking loved it all!

    • Weird dream

      6 years ago

      DeadlyTiger1

      So I had this really weird dream last night were I was talking to this guy in an elevator about Game Grumps. And I pretty much said, "I don't like them. At first they were funny but then it just turned into these two idiots who couldn't talk about the game. Let alone pay attention to it when it's telling them what to do, and then complain that the game isn't intuitive enough." Then after I say that, I turned around, and the guy who started the conversation is Egoraptor, and I just get completely flustered, and exclaim, "Jesus Christ, man! I didn't know it was you!' And all Egoraptor says to me before the dream ends, in the most passive aggressive way possible said, "No it's alright. I thought the first episodes of Game Grump were better anyway."

      I feel as though now I need to find a dream interpreter, and ask him what this means. Either that or I need to never eat a burrito before bed, ever again.

      So today I had the wondrous luck of stumbling across a Korean flash animation by the name of "There she is!!". The story takes places in a world filled with anthropomorphic rabbits, and cats. Where any mixed romantic relation of the two is a social taboo, which serves as the main conflict for the series. The animation follow the relationship between a male cat, Nabi, and a female rabbit, Doki who the later is madly in love with Nabi. Unfortunately however, Nabi fearing of social disapproval, is fairly closed to Doki's signs of affection, and doesn't begin to open up until later on.

      What is possibly the best part about the series is the lack of voice acting. Rather than having three to four minutes of characters chatting back, and forth, the story is told through movements, and expressions of the characters with rock music playing over it. It's was honestly something truly refreshing to watch over the flood of Egoraptor styled parodies, and to be perfectly honest is better than anything he could ever produce. Especially with his current maturity.

      My only irrelevant grip with the series is that the lyrics tend to be more fitting for Doki's view, but instead is coming from a male's perspectives. But besides that everything flows beautifully, and is easily worth the time to watch, and appreciate it.

      The Jackal's Court
      His weight is your jury. Your defense; your regrets.
      In his court there is no mercy, no brutality. Only pure judgement.

      The Prince, and the Hero
      A prince's life is showered in fame, and glory. He sleeps in a soft,warm bed, safe in his tower as his people praise him for the work of his fathers. He does not know, or understand the hardships that bought him these prizes.

      A hero's life is a crooked path walking on the brink of insanity as the lines of morality begin to blur, and fade into obscurity. He does not walk this path for wealth, or for righteous proclamation, but so that no other need to follow him.

      Just somethings I felt like sharing. The first is obviously about the Egyptian god Anubis, and the latter is going on the idea of a prince taking the thrown from his father when he's done nothing to deserve it. The hero variant is based on a character of mine who is somewhat hypocritical on the concept of who is innocent.

      I don't know if I'm that smart to think of that. Briggs' thing was he wanted to serve Equestria, when he heard Spark's angle he thought he was right, and did what he thought was best for Equestria, the same way the Triumvirate does..nobody is evil just because they're evil, they think what they're doing is right, Briggs' conversion shows how thin the line was between good and bad in the story; the chapter really was in every sense a rally, a final push for both sides, one last bit of betrayal for the Triumvirate, one last fight for the good guys

      Well, that's the most glowing review i've ever gotten. Thank you smiley12.gif

      And to what you said about the story,

      Gates. The questions' about Gates' past have been really the central point of the story, and is possibly the most important part, so i'm happy i'm showing that well

      Motives. I also do go deeper into the motives later on, and that plays a big role too.

      The characters: I was actually worried I wasn't doing a good job capturing the mane six that well, something about putting words in the mouth of a character that isn't mine is tricky, but im glad someone thinks I'm doing well.

      All in all, thank you, I'm always open to feedback, so send it at me as you wish
