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

Warning: if you are bad at fire emblem you will turn into Garfield

I had a dream that I… uh… became Garfield
But the weird thing about it was that I had only become Garfield in the future, due to some decision I had made in the past. It was some kind of karmic punishment or something.

I wasted zero time figuring out how to get back to the past and break the Garfield curse, which was apparently accomplished by retreating to the cat bed in the far room and sitting in it. …At least, that’s what I really hoped would work. After a few attempts I figured out how to shrink to a small size along with the bed.

Dark Street Fighter, show me the forbidden oldschool copying verifications

So I had a dream that… started out really ordinary, but then after a certain point got progressively weirder and weirder.

First my brother’s parrot was crawling around the walls of its cage trying to get out in order to threaten to bite me, and kept finding doors to get out, after which I’d shoo it back in. Instead of just one like in reality, there were like three doors on the cage; it was built a lot more like the cage we used to keep parakeets in (which had two doors).

The dream then, naturally,

#NotWhatYouOrdered

So today I managed to dream in marketing campaigns and Undertale AUs.

The first part of the dream I can remember was me waking up. Only unlike in real life, at the foot of my couch-bed there was a vending machine with about 20 different choices in it. All of them were slightly different off-brand brown diet colas, each of them—probably because it was my vending machine—priced at five cents. I took out a “200 cent” coin reasoning that I should get a lot of change back, but the machine didn’t accept it because it was from the Philippines.

The mythopoeia of Saralya

One thing to keep in mind was that this was from a slightly earlier version of Tyrian than the “definitive” version in 2014 when I started retouching a big handful of things, so it might seem a little different from the notes/pictures in my blog tag—the Chayavana are still referred to as “deva” for one. However, you can bet any specifically-named Chayavana/”deva” you see here would definitely have been a part of Tyrian.

Final note: remember while reading this that I was about 16 at the time, and this might as well have been my theme song. This was by the time I’d actually started to get pretty damn good at making foreign names that were linguistically intelligent and not just “I’ll pick this really common word because it sounds exotic in my language”, but man are the Indian/Japanese influences apparent here.

With that, here it is.

Last night I had a dream that… well… can’t really be conveyed well except in the form of a hastily-drawn doodle comic. So here you go.

(I dramatised it a bit, but minus a bit of extra dialogue putting wordless thoughts into words this is pretty much exactly how it went)

cubebasic

So… yeah. I went to spy on the Cube Army and apparently turned into some kind of cube whistleblower uncovering sphere corruption or something.

Things that are apparently true in the world of this dream:

  • Cubes have just enough sentience to move, though you need to put them on conveyor belts to get them anywhere
  • Cubes have a life history
  • Cubes can fly, but only if they have degrees; they can graduate (complete with mortarboard) just by going through a door. Humans still can’t do any of this.
  • Cubes might be ruled over by spheres…? I don’t quite understand it?
  • Just to be clear, the cubes we’re talking about look exactly like the default grey cubes that appear in Blender and probably other 3d programs, and are always the same size. Which I didn’t draw to scale but is probably about 60 cm to a side.

Soul and Void

So Stablehand just got fucking terrifying today
…I’m joking.

But once again, I just made up something that was such a concept it scared me


So, I’ve sort of been messing around with the idea of “Soul”, as an opposite… force? I guess? to Void. Void is the main supernatural/Weird thing that affects Stablehand’s planet. Because Void permeates the universe of Aluma, people can use the magic-like “cirque” to manipulate their environment and make cool technologies, travel to and from the Aether that Void comes from, and transform themselves into cyborg-like technotranscendents or furry-like biotranscendents.

This was a long, rather detailed dream that I forgot like half the details of when I woke up, but here’s everything I remember.

I started out in this house that looked kinda like this

bertrude_room_1
There really was just a void around everything, including the table in the centre, but nobody really noticed it. And although this was the upper story of the house, you couldn’t see the lower story through the void. This was going by video game logic, I guess.

I walked around the roughly ring-shaped room,

I’ve been working on Asekai sprites some more, and feel like this is a good time to post them, so here they are.

Yard Bird is an “alternate” evolution for Feuvog, a phoenix-like creature connected to seasons, ambience, and life. (“Alternate” is a nice way of putting it… these “alternate” evolution routes actually happen when you do a bunch of stuff wrong.)

Why “Yard Bird”? All of Feuvog’s “standard” stages are named “(something)vog”, so I wanted its alternate ones to be all named “(Something) Bird”. The first thing I thought of was “Yard Bird”,
