Last night I had a dream that a friend on tumblr sent me a message asking if she could make her fan player character for Hyper Light Drifter work for my monarch OC I’d tentatively made when I didn’t know much about the game but her secondhand gushings
I was like, uhhh I’m still not sure how canon they are but? if this weird mess I threw together based on something I intuitively felt should exist in HLD’s world makes any sense, yeah sure why not
This was my “OC”, pretty much exactly. Their “story” was something like, they were drawn to hyperlight to gain power, and did, but became this sorta zombieish thing unable to stop bursting it out of themself, their body sort of in this constant battle between being preserved and torn apart by it. (Their central tear is like, a bust seam, and their feet no longer work right and have gone kind of limp. But I imagine them being able to throw out really powerful magic by flailing forth their entire useless body really hard.)
I still know very little about Hyper Light Drifter. In fact, now I think I know even less than I did before. :p
Napstablook’s human form (Napstablook VE) looks the way it does because I was like, with that funky quaint battle music, Napstablook would totally look like a 30s swing orchestra conductor or something. So I loosely based their appearance on Duke Ellington. I would have tried a little harder to make them androgynous but I was too lazy (I couldn’t even stick to one set of proportions lol)
Ok so, I had a dream about FNAF. But it wasn’t a stupid nightmare, it was actually just kind of a dream… commenting on the subject of having nightmares about it and saying ‘geez that’s stupid, this stuff is NOT actually scary’.
I more or less literally had a deconstruction of a nightmare. :p
(content warning: unfrightening parodies of jumpscares)
I don’t really remember the first part of the dream clearly.
It was like there was no FNAF stuff at all at first,
So, I’d been intrigued by the idea of Steven having the diamond grunts and Lapis instead of the Crystal Gems, or more precisely, what it would actually mean for the story, and I drew one of my famous Takumi doodle-storyboard-comics about it. I’ve drawn said things about three times before, and this is the first time I think I actually made a kind of good one.
First off we have a Synthesis combo. I was thinking about how RFS combo techniques are a little bit like Gem fusions but not exactly, and how given I see Sardonyx as being Synthesis maybe G.E.M.!- Garnet and Pearl could do a Synthesis combo where they move around a lot and whenever their paths intersect they can literally run straight through each other and while they’re intersecting they’ll appear as a glimpse of G.E.M.!Sardonyx.
