Hey guys, I'm still working on my next story and drawing so in the meantime to stay active I decided to make kind of a history of where my characters came from, both from Dragon's Rule and Before Your Eyes. Believe it or not, they come from the same little story I wrote back in middle school, along with Kit, a character I use on a fantasy wolf rpg sight, found here: thekumariwolves.ohmylife.net/f… she has been with me three years at the end of this month! And just for fun, this will not only include the history, but if those characters were around how they would react. Along with a few follow up questions for my lovely characters, all in all this will be a long journal but it will be one of the funniest I ever write and one that let's you get to know about me. Should it be way long…it will be two journals. Here, a handy key for following along
An O before a name will mean old. OE: Old Elem.
Way back in middle school in eight grade in art class we had a project to make a kind of logo for a world we would want. I made this globe split between elements and from there, my first story was born. Now, it was a world where there were two realms, Light and Dark.
L: What now?
D: Like us.
M: no no no , light and dark civilizations.
M: Right..Anyway let's get to know the civilization before we know the characters. There was also another realm, a realm were the Counsel lived, yes that Counsel my idea of including all mythological creatures is a very old one. The addition of gods/goddess is new though. The difference was, except back in the days of middle school, it was just bests. Fero still existed, and Cerberus, same design same personalities. Midnight didn't a much less serious dragon, Gruffin was there back then.
Midnight: Humph, what good could any dragon do if they weren't serous?
M: Hey you weren't in the key -.- and well he did some good. Anyway, in each half of the world there was an alter that represented the other world; the planet literally looked like a yin yang symbol. Long ago there was a war of course, to determine power, it was deiced that a leader would be chosen from one land until they died, then the other would step up. The leader was decided by a council on earth, and would stand before a dragon statue in the land that was their opposite at their own alter. If the dragon's eyes glowed they were accepted if not they weren't. The people and animals of the land were born with a symbol on them, on each shoulder was a symbol, light on one dark on the other, the halves of the circle. The one of their own land would glow.
Right then, let's get to the characters. Old Elem was about the same age as current Elem but a lot more…emotionally unstable, got worked up over the little things and stressed over everything easy.
E: ……I…I'm go glad you changed me.
OE: I'm so hurt you changed me!!! *Sob* Ugh I hate you!! *death glare.
M:Right…old Ace was the same age as old Elem and was just a normal human but with gold hair and armor, he was kind a perfect but sucked at fighting given the name 'golden boy' by Elem.
A: yeah I kind of thought I was perfect when I was younger.
OA: our not me, you are no longer perfect.
J: Housecat, I would have had so much fun with the old you.
M: Oh but you did Jet! Old Jet was in the realm where the counsel lived, still the angel, still the marks on the wings but was so much more depressed. Basically he was an teen who oozed anger but was kinda cool in his own right. ….you ever see Amanda Show and Moody's point? He was Splanding.
J: *pinches bridge of nose* Ugh I was that uptight!! I'm known to be the joker now.
OJ: *Stares off in the distance silently as the wind blows though his hair and sighs a deep melodramatic sigh*
A: BWAHAHAHAH JET!!!! Oh I like this Jet, he shuts up.
J: Shut it Housecat.
E: *laughing unconquerably* Ace you…and jet you….Oh this is too good!!!
OE: I'm happy! I'm Sad!!!
OA: What is so funny? Why do they laugh?
M: Ok, let's not forget Liz, back then she was…she was a unicorn named Heather. And she was petrified of EVERYTHING.
L: And now I fight alongside these guys without question. And yeah I have killed before, puh Unicorn *Rolls eyes*
Heather: What???Ahh what was that!! *Bolts.*
M: So, premise of the story, a new leader coms forth, a Dark leader named Spike. While Spike is no longer in the BYE story…he kina turned into Dark.
M: Not really, he was evil.
D: Dang, so I was their Yomi?
M: Yep. Ok, so Spike is getting chosen, the dragon statue glows, but Old Elem hears a voice in her head saying how this was a bad choice. So, she has a dream that night of meeting the dragon, turns out, Spikey boy found a way to steal a dragon egg, he bribed them.
L: And I thought old Jet was the melodramatic one.
M: Anyway, she leaves and goes on a quest bid of the dragon to learn the elements of the world, go to the dark land, take this book which teachers her how to get to the plain of the others, learn the rest of her training there then go fight Spike, take back the egg and have another take place as leader. She leaves, and the first thing she encounters . Then Elem meats a pack of wolves, dark wolves, led by a white female wolf, Kika.
Kit: Hey!!! Is she were I come from?
M: Yes she is, she's a little like you.
Kit: *wags tail* I didn't know I was so old.
m: Ok, in the pack are two wolves, Black Tip and Tip, pure black/white with opposite tips, yin and yang. From he pack she learns he elements are represented by animals, and can be taught to her by those animals. She learns wolves are Thunder, as they howls. Lets see, otters were water, a falcon was wind, hedgehog was earth, lion was fire, chaeta was lightning, light and dark were tiger and dragon, and the elements of combat, offence and defense, were bear and squirrel. in the forest is Rebel, a unicorn who has been hurt. She takes care of him, he was hurt by Spike as a symbolic the peace of the world is disturbed yada yada yada.
OE: Why do you sound so bored with our story!! *Sobs*
OA: You know it's perfect.
OJ: ……… …. ……It is….
M: Because it was written suckaly. She moves on, they meet a warrior in gold old Ace who is *dun dun duaaa* Brothers with Spike!!!
A: Ace…Spike…you see the relation here.
M: Shut up, they wert originally going to be brothers, I didn't plan things well back then. So, they fight, realize they need each other become friend and move on Oh and in the last town Bella and Balthazar, the dove and raven sowed up, yeah remember those guys? . The story ended half way to the dark lands, a demon joined the team but he was a good guy, not really he was a double agent, then a squirrel joined, then Heather the Liz unicorn. Jet is not really with them yet, but he can contact them at nigh, like the Council did with the current Elem. He would train them and stuff, and stand there while the wind blew majestically though his hair and feathers while he looked off into the distance.
So then, that is the story, sadly it never ended, and oh yeah….Jet and Ace were constantly fighting each other for Elem's love, and to them love was the hardest fight there was.
OEJA: *shrugs and embarrassed blushes*
E:…Really? Love! *laughs* Oh Jet, oh Ace, which one of you love me more? The world is in danger but we have all the time to worry about it.
A: I love you more, so much more I don' care about how moody and handsome that guy is, I'm mister perfect. I can win you over and save the world!
J:…..silence…….I'm just so cool and full of angst, you must love me. But you must not for we must save the world.
E:A:J *busts into laugher*
M: Ok settle down kids. Let's talk a little about me now. This story just got too out of hand, I added characters that represented my friends and he sorry just kind of faded away. Most of the characters were based on friends and Elem was 'my' character…in a way. See back then I didn't really make my characters persona, they were just character, my creations and had their own personalities, often unlike my own. That was Elem, she was going to have my mindset but act noting really like me. Then my second story came along, Dragon's rule. See, the original characters were still there underlying, because the original characters not only were biased on life and experiences and friends but from my dreams. Many of which recuing or having the same main figures in them with stories of their own. I won't go into what they were about, those were personal but taking some of the main ideas, main character and personalities I decided to make a story of my own.
Dragon's Rule was born!!!
L: Doesn't every kid love the story of their birth?
D: Oh yeah, this is fun *munches on popcorn*
J: Ohhh I want popcorn. *Steals/shares*
M: o.O Hehe you are all my babies in a way. Anyway, so I made new characters…..kind of, see my main guys evolved. Old Elem turned into Light, old Ace? He turned much older, much wiser and turned into Leon. Dark we've already been over. That spooky unicorn? She became Princess Titanna, well as I said before, the Princess was a friend's of my character, Heather was biased off of that friend, she changed as much as the Heather to Liz and I as much as old Elem to new Elem. Old moody Jet? He became Lee, but with a tragic past of being a killer because he liked to kill and was evil with good inside, and a maser of every weapon.
Lee: I'd like to think I got the best update from that.
L: Cool…so Elements always your thing?
M: *shgus* Hey I thought it was a good idea back then, why not shift it and make it cooler, you know involve the Elemental family. They changed again by the way, for Kit. That story took a long pause, and I wanted to include some of my old baby into Kit.
Kit: So that's why I have Sister Wind at my aid, and have Light as my past life.
L: Wait say what now.
M: Different Light, you in essence but with a lot more attitude and hatred for the rules, kind of thinks she's above the rule and does her own thing.
L: Yeahs how'd I get like that?
M: It would be you in the modern day,
D: *shgus* She sounds the same to me.
L: Mrrh. *Slaps in back of head*
E: hey I haven't spoke in a while. Oh look a super fluffy wolf! *Hugs Kit*
K: Ack…come on now, I'm the leader of a pack, have been though three mates, two litters, one of which had one survivor and the death of rest *growls*
M: Uh…right, you would kill me if we met right?
K: I would if I didn't believe in killing out of anger…
Kika: I would *laughs*
M: See, it's good to evolve. Ok then, so, after Dragon's rule I wanted to wright some more, a lot more and decided on bring the old characters back but with newish personalities. I wanted them to be more realistic, feel more alive and not be too much like the charters in Dragon's Rule. I kept the counsil but got rid of the elements to change things around, making a new story. Elem this time is indeed my persona. Kit is kind of my persona; she has my sweet side but is a lot more…peaceful. Elem has love for her family, loyalty to her friends, a strong personality, is always finding her morals, at least until they are solid, (you'll see) and is kinda quick to temper. Oh and never holds her thoughts back. I've never put myself in a character before, I didn't really want to honestly, I didn't want people to read about a charter who was a lot like me, trust issues and all.
E: Nods, exactly.
Kit: Trust issues? Why hate people before you get to know them?
OE: People are good! Unless they make you mad or sad.
L: All people have at lest some Light within.
M:Elem gets me. Maybe she can turn into a dragon and scare the others away.
OE: I know dragon.
K: I know some too.
L: Dragon Rider.
M:…well at least Elem still gets me.
E: Nods and smiles.
M: Trust issue high five!!!!
E&M: *High Five*
L: You guys are all kids you know.
M: yes and your old. Literally old as time.
D: *snickers* Old lady
L: Old man
Kit: Wait wait wait, let's talk, how come I trust people so dang easily, I meet someone and it's all 'oh yay I'll trust them, I'll put my life on the line for them if I need to.' What is up with that? People think I'm week because of my kind heart.
M: Well it's more fun to make a character that is nothing like you, it's harder to write, the more the challenge the better.
M: So yeah, that's where my lovely stories and characters come from. Elem this time around is my first ever real persona. We think alike, act alike, heck I even lay in my bed at the end of every day and do most of my thinking then (you'll see in part two) That's actually where I think of some of the best ideas for my story. Though all my characters are lose to my heart for various reasons, Elem is the closest.
J: So were basically all each other in some way?
L: That's a little odd.
E: Weren't you listening? We're all individuals.
M: Oh that's another reason I'm like Elem, in my group I step up as often as I can and be the leader.
A: But I'm the leader of this team.
E: I make decisions too ya know. And as I said, we are all our own person, change is good.
L: You're just saying that because you don't like who you are.
E: Oh shush….Heather.
A: Let's just say, we all came from some strange….very very very strange roots but we are who we are.
All: Nods in agreement.
M: Yeah, so old and new characters, what do you think of how you turned out.
OJ:…..I shall never be replicated, but I shall always evolve.
J: Still glad I'm not mister depressing fortune cookie up there, I have a personal and all who know me love it
L: Agreed, I may be a little sad or upset at my past at some times, but this guy has all the emotins of a twig. You turned out good kid, you kidna remind me of me but with a lot more life.
J: Thanks, I had a harsh past too, but deal with it in my own way. I wouldn't be me if I didn't have my smile, smirk and upbeat attitude that makes everyone's day.
L: A very good way to live.
J: Hey you too, you changed for the better because of how another helped you see yourself and fought for the goodness of the world. We can hang out any time.
L: *laughs* only when I'm not at my post with Lance.
OA: I'm sure all of my decedents are not as good as me.
Leon: I am much better than you strive to be. One who thinks he is prefect will never better himself, train to be strong or fight for anything but himself. This is why I became the first Rider.
A: Yes, a leader just like me. And a fellow feline, though I never imagined myself having a tiger homid form like your natural form.
Leon: Though may you take pride in your natural form and draw strength from it. You need to be confident in yourself to be a leader, and the great one that you are.
A: Don't I know it, thank you though sir for the advice, may I live well by following a predecessor as good as you and live up to your example.
Leon. I'm sure you will.
Spike: I seek the total dominance o the earth!!!
D: Oh please, villains like you are always so caught up in yourselves and full of speech after speech but no real action. Wanna see a real villain? Yomi, so many of my friends were lost that day, he had plans within plans, traps within traps and got stuff done though is strength not though bribary. I am nothing like you, I have darkness yes, I rival Light yes but she is my sister, and we work better together than as foes. I joke, I laugh, I paly around but I get serious and battle, and unlike you I know how to fight.
Spike: *Stunned silence*
L: I'm so proud of you Brother.
D: Thanks, you know I'm prud of you too Sister.
Hether: Ahhhh *still running away*
Princess Tatiana: I don't run from any challenge, not even that of my father. I live to break the rules, run free and live my life.
Liz: Well I don't know about fear but I make sure my team is always calm, no fighting amoung them. When I find a foe, I fight with all I have.
Pt: Ditto, we have somewhat different problems and I hate to kill when I don't have to but I admier your strength mermaid.
Liz: Yours too Princess.
OE: I was just…..a kid that's all…How dare you hate me!!
E: Calm down there crazy. I'm still a kid but I have my emotions in check…for the most part, I let my anger out a lot when need be. I'm confident with myself, strong, and always, always speak my mind.
L: Ditto, I'm not quite as angry as you, happy, open, trusting, love for all I meet. I too am always myself, never hiding and never holding anything back. I like you young one, I'm sure you'll be a mighty warrior someday, and the fact you have a dragon form proves that you have a heart that will never be conquered.
E: Thanks, tat means a lot. Really it does. You, you're a being who would be on the Council in my world, were the same but different, I hope I can be great like you.
L: Not as great as me?
E: No, as great as me, as the individual I am and the warrior, dragon, and council member I will become.
L: *Nods, wisely spoken*
K: Hey, what about me? I'm light but not light, rather she lives in me. Maybe like the most recent reincarnation of light, if she lived in the modern world. Yes my rise to alpha does involve other people, it's how roll playing words but I evolved a lot.
E: *Smiles* You're the kinder side of both of us, trusting an sweet.
L: yes, I like you, the version of Light with you is odd I'll admit but is still me, your kindness is our strength and you'll never let it die.
Kit: Thanks. *tail wags* you guys rock.
E: *hgus again* Ohhh your just so fluffy! Even more so than Ace, and so cute, I wish you were a little pup.
Kit: Some respect….please.
E: *Lets go and giggles* Sorry, I'm direct with my feelings remember?
K: Right… so hey, what about me and Kika?
Kika: *Looks at Kit, paces around her, her own body low to the ground and her movements almost cat like. Scofs* And what makes you a leader? What is your pack like.
Kit: Time, I have been in the pack a long time, a loner, a hunter, a delta, a beta, now an alpha. I have seen much, and leaned much. My heart leads me.
Kika: *Laughs* Aww aren't you a cute pup following your heart.
Kit: Well then miss high and mighty, how do you lead *growls*
Kika: With my head of course. *starts walking around Kit again* I give trust to none, I fought my way to this rank and lead without an alpha male. My word is final, I am confident enough for my word to be final, and so is my pack.
Kit: *Facing forward* You have no idea how much confidence I have gained in myself.
Kika: Hope it pays off. Now what of your pack, are they organized?
Kit: Ye, and loyal, wise, they are a family.
Kika: Again cute, my pack is a unit, I am a leader, a general. My pack is my army, they have squadrons, teams that know each other and know how to work tighter. Different teams for different missions. And I don't even have any of your fancy powers. You were based off of me, and you're a step down.
Kit: *Snaps* Oh please, there are so many like you out there, who are good rulers because they are made for it. I am not, I have a heart that leads my head, a kindness for the world around me, and my pack is family. Bonds give strength, I am strong because I work for it, and I have to keep working for it, not because I am natural at it.
Kika: *Nods* There we go, and that is why you came from me, and not the other way around. You have always worked to better yourself, now that you lead you do even more so. You'll do fine, you are worthy to be my 'decedent' *runs off and fades away*
Kit: *Smiles* Thank you Kika, I'll remember that.
M: Kit's part was longer because she is the most different from her origin.
Oracle: I feel so left out.
*Whole group turns to her.*
Runs at to hug
O: Ahhhhhhh. *runs away, the others follow*
And now, some closing words with a question to the BYE characters: You guys deal with mythical beasts and gods and goddesses on a daily…nightly basis, do you have any religious believes?
E: yeah, and it's all the same actually.
A: See this we will always agree on.
L: In this respect, were right.
O: I think all your characters believe in this one deep down.
J: Let us praise the almighty one.
All: All hail the Backspace key!!!!!!!
J: After all they say the almighty one can rewrite your history, the very words you utter out of your mouth and you won't even know it.
XD That's all for now guys, hope you enjoy this crazy mind of mine, I do often wonder what would it be like if my characters met, something alone these lines, especially when talking over their shared ancestry. I hope you are all well, if not may things get better soon.
