So the other day I was having a stupid little thought about people having Reflector MBs that could act as mini-Hfenixata. I haven’t talked about Reflectors much cause they haven’t been developed very much but basically they reside in a host and then the host and Reflector sort of “reflect” each other, that is, bring out hidden qualities of each other through their intertwinedness. They’re basically a carryover from my dropped (and in-reboot) Tyrian project, where they were inspired by the shadows in Blue Dragon Ral Grad* (which in turn first appeared in Blue Dragon).
So I was working on fleshing out the idea I’d had of using technique trees today, and got a pretty ridiculous but great idea
All Wings-07′s cirque techniques are literally just job skills pulled from “things you should put on your resume” lists
And like, depending on which skills he upgrades it determines what job he can get :p
I like the idea his flowspace (basically a combo character screen/objectives screen that’s styled differently for each character, if you haven’t been following) is quite literally his resumé and as he upgrades techniques it changes, with the next techniques he’s going to get in there with question marks
Until Stablehand, I never realised how contradictory “things you should put on your resume” lists could be…
I feel like I need to share the inspiration for this character, because it’s an odd little story.
So, there’s this cartoon called Regular Show. I had never actually watched it, but apparently it’s one of those things where a guy won a contest and just sort of put together a bunch of random characters and things lying around and wove a concept around them. Which was basically ‘hey what if they were just sort of goofing around at college’.
One of Wings-07’s things was supposed to be that for some reason he liked to take pictures with his camera
Of course I just realised that being a bird and all, Wings would probably find looking at an image from even the best camera like being a human and looking at an image from an old black and white camera. :p
Some quickly put-together pics of Ariana and her OCs for roleplay purposes. A few parts of what’s to follow may be a little confusing if you aren’t in the roleplay, so I’ve readmored it.
