A rock opera (AMVs ideally) set in a world of anthropomorphic “besthommen” where everything is founded on an extended elements system. Centres around the titular pink pterosaur and her quest to find out more about the legendary “Candora’s Vox”.
In the planning phase. Wrote some lyrics but haven’t designed much.
I’m kinda sorta thinking about combining Fuchsia White and Remėx the Avian
Fuchsia White kinda… went nowhere too fast. The idea of a rock opera with a distinctive visual aesthetic based around “besthommen” (furries, roughly speaking) was really neat but I never really came up with a story to tell, more than a method of character creation and the vaguest background.
I wrote eighteen thousand words about my gender. Which, by the way, is literally nearly as much as my Stablehand explanation post (aka WSP) and “autobiography” post combined, which were ~10k words each. (It took me two weeks.)
Hmm, if I’m doing the geek programming thing with Fuchsia White probably the way it works is Pterosaurs had gender before Candora and then subsequent inherits* just left off that part of the interface to create a genderless race, Fuchsia being a relic based on the old model that happened to be an inherit of Candora or one of hers that didn’t have the change
Yesterday I got a very interesting idea for the Fuchsia White universe
Previously what I had was that literally everything (everything) in the universe was made by hard work in kind of a weird satirical extension of this idea/myth of the American frontier where everyone’s a pioneer and everything was made by the ‘hard work of our forefathers’, and that everything was ‘elementalist’, with this system where there were a potentially infinite number of elements, each as deep as typical overused fantasy elements
Yesterday while trying to think of how Fuchsia White’s universe originally began I randomly imagined that the universe was actually made up of programming code,
The “Gatekeeper” idea I had for the Kai Project was pretty interesting but honestly the monstergame paradigm and its portal world paradigm together are kind of… needless extra complication? Like why is it necessary to have living portals, I realised
I may instead put a similar portal thing in Fuchsia White where each locale is created by creating its (inanimate) portal, because it fits really well with the “elementverse” concept where things are created to different elements but the definition of element is really broad
Currently “Nebulus” as a name for the home of my tentative newest character “Sinopia Grey” comes to mind, which would be a sort of endless sky city of clouds
37, 42 and 48 for the. fuchsia, rite? was that the name idr
37. How is your character’s imagination? Daydreaming a lot? Worried most of the time? Living in memories?
Fuchsia is definitely very imaginative and likes to fantasise about things, whether they’re probable and immediately relevant to the now or not.
42. What does your character want most? What do they need really badly, compulsively? What are they willing to do, to sacrifice, to obtain?
Haha well… Fuchsia is fairly self-sufficient but I know from a song I was working on a bit very recently she REALLY wants to know the unknown. Learning stuff about her ancestor Candora made her just really really want to know what it was like to be Candora and what was going through her mind and sorta, what on earth Candora would have wanted for whoever discovered her “Vox”. She wants to have a dialogue with the past and with her idol she will never be able to have, particularly in an era where nobody else wants anything to do with Candora.
Fuchsia is pretty much giving up the opportunity to form her own dreams and aspirations in order to learn about Candora and do what she wanted but in a way to learn about the unknown is what Fuchsia most wants anyway so it’s both a sacrifice of sorts and a dream come true.
48. How are your character’s gestures? Vigorous? Weak? Controlled? Compulsive? Energetic? Sluggish?
I’d say at first Fuchsia’s gestures are pretty quick and snappy and confident, but then again I see being more controlled, calm, and fluid aligning with her overall character better. She’s probably the latter most of the time but sometimes the former. The way she behaves would probably make Virid nervous and fidgety, but the unnamed “punk” sparklecat would probably find it cool.
I realised yesterday that if I get any amount of my Fuchsia White thing done it will be literally true that I’m not a woman but I play one on TV
Hmm probably Fuchsia’s weapon will simply be “Candora’s Vox”, this sort of microphone/megaphone-like thing that allows her to do interesting effects with her voice and gives her powers, sorta in the same spirit as the Stablehand Soulful archetype
I realised I’d really liked the couple of silly vaguely-metal ‘quietly rasp-scream the lyrics’ things I’d put in the intro song because they were so weird and silly, to the point it might make sense to just go with ‘occasionally just suddenly a bold rocker’ being part of her personality
You know, I really like the idea of a fantastical world where the world is a big focus, but
Where instead of anybody worshipping any kind of nature god or natural force or source of magic or ANYTHING like that, everything is framed in terms of the hard work and ingenuity of ordinary people
Like, ordinary people created the categories of magic in use today and the concept of magic itself as like an innovative invention and somehow established the world itself as a grand fantastic place for future generations to delight in according to a vision of what would be a cool world to live in with a wide range of possibilities
Kinda like the popular romanticised legend of how America came to be I guess but more generalised
I’d have to figure out what they started from because that’s a little unclear to me but this sure is an idea
I could have the modified SH attributes for the Kai Project at the top level of my element system and create the element hierarchy from there
