I just figured out why Aluma has these impossible-sounding mythical creatures that in reality all happen to coalesce in the flaredrakeicorn and the kamaileopard
Eight different Antecedents each saw one of Arkturuse’s two Patron-Accessories and each one had a different impression of it. For instance Vistula the Dawn looked at Xera Flaredrakeicorn and saw them as a bright white griffin-like creature with a bluegreen shimmer, the “umao”, some Antecedent in Grævonia looked at them and went ‘oh it’s a bright kinda fiery thing this obviously must be the Phoenix’
With Zyra Kamaileopard there are these extinct creatures right and so the Antecedents look at it and they think they see the extinct creatures, kind of an amusing inversion of a cryptid story where people find the ‘bigfoot’ in something way more amazing that nobody realises exists because people were too busy talking about cryptids
That makes me think, it’s kinda possible other Aetherbosses’ Accessories had some role in Aluma too. I can’t immediately think of what Rosetta and Clearfill would be doing, but Dark Teapot is already known to have done stuff in Aluma under a male persona called Sigmund Wren. It’s possible The Air and Spiral may have followed him during that time.
So for a long time I had this idea of the “flaredrakeicorn” and the idea Mega-Mierundaro/Arkturuse would have two Accessories that each represented Xai and Zed but I never really had them designed. It is now time to fix that.
Arkturuse’s Accessories are made of these mythical animals:
flaredrakeicorn: Es – AEX (flardraco) / U – TEZ (phoenix) / W – ATX (unicorn) / V – ATZ (griffin thing)
kamaileopard: Ft – AEZ (leijon) / Fn – TEX (cœlailurus) / M – TTZ (kamaileo) / S –
Hoo boy, another mess. Let’s start with the Infiltrator.
Yesterday River Monsters reminded me that skates existed, so I looked them up and I was just like whoa look at these things they’re so crazy. They almost look like an MB already, haha.
So, I thought, why not turn them into one? And I started designing this skate/ray MB that can flatten and extend its body seemingly endlessly in order to eavesdrop on everyone and everything (yeah, somehow its skin can just kinda hear I guess.
Recently I’ve been thinking about the fact that no matter how hard I try to call Yanha “it” and “they”, I keep accidentally thinking of them as “he” for some reason. On one hand, it felt wrong because nothing about them is really all that “male”, but on the other hand, I just couldn’t stop myself, and I thought that was really weird. I wondered if it was just the fact that as a human, I was just too used to everything being forced into the categories of “male” and “female” or what.
Then recently, when I was kind of messing around trying to think of new MB ideas,
