I'm always insecure and anxious when it comes to writing about my characters.  Like, if their personality comes across correctly.  This mostly came about because of a few story chains I was in where I had to start the story:

1) A lonely adolescent kid, Tobias, who had moved around a lot had pretty much no friends, had been bullied for being "the new, loner kid," and had always had a shy nature.  He sees a kid getting bullied on one of his first days, but does nothing out of fear and a bit of apathy.  Tobias later sees the kid in the bathroom.

Next person in the story chain turns Tobias into a bully and tries to solicit money or services from the kid.  No where near where I was going.

2) A depressed teenager, Alex, had sunken deeper into his depression when the anniversary of his father's death was coming around.  The only two things he had as special "mementos" of his father was a Lego house they had built together when he was a kid and their family dog (which I can't remember his name, but it was a really unique name and it kills me that I can't remember OTL).  His mother accidentally breaks the Lego house and out of anger he storms out and rests at a park with his dog.

Later in the story chain, Alex commands his dog to kill some random person walking down the street out of spite.  Pretty much turned him into a serial killer.

3) In my most recent story chain, Rin is a simple-minded (but not naive or dumb, thank you), lazy slob (remind you of anyone? XD ).  When his sister arrives to his house to depart together on some special occasion, he had just woken up and in his sleeping attire.

Now he's an abusive, druggy boyfriend (I had left my part openly ambiguous with the characters, their relationship, and plot to allow freedom for the next people).  Granted, that was all my fault but it still saddens me.

I mean, I guess it's a lot easier to create a conflict in the story with more dramatic character "flaws," but still

I really need to work on my characterizations and descriptions when writing, I guess...

Fun Fact: My last "short" story draft for my class had a strict maximum word count of 1250 words.  I wrote 2122 words.  Fuck yeah, motherfuckers XD
I'm going to be so screwed with revising


Random Stuff:

*Finished Book 5 of Wings of Fire (which was supposed to be the last book until the author got approved to write another five).  I cried like a baby at the end.  Were they happy tears or sad tears? ^;w;^

*My friend lent me her book Love & Misadventures by Lang Leav because it's full of love poems and she thought I'd enjoy it.  Don't know if I can handle tho

*Still pining to watch Captain America: The Winter Soldier OTL

Sawp Deviants. Not too sure on how much of a presence I'll be on here, but I wanted to join anyway :P Be forewarned, I'm not too good of a drawer, so advice is appreciated :D

Drawing is pretty fun, but I like writing a lot more.

Note: Any characters with a yellow left eye and a blue right eye is slightly based off of me. Call me crazy, but I swear my left eye and right eye are more sensitive to yellow and blue light respectively

If I give you a Llama Badge, it's just me being generous with giving away free things. You don't have to return the favor :)
