CrashAndDive, The Reader
Hi. I'm boring. You can probably just skip over this profile if you're looking for interesting profiles to read. There's also a lot of links, but they aren't properly hyperlinked because I don't like the basic text editor and I seem to be editing this profile thing often. The only one you really need to look at is this one - http://vikingmera.tumblr.com/post/168431307504/trying-to-get-your-story-together-like - because that's true of pretty much every story I have. XD
Made my profile pic myself. It's one of my oc's, Damien. He's a bit mentally disturbed. And he's a frickin nightlight, with neon glowy stuff. A pretty scary nightlight tho. Made with a combination of traditional and digital. Those can be kinda fun to do.
If you're more curious about my art,
I have commissions open. *shrugs*
(I'd be down for a trade of some sort too. You write a short story of some characters, and I'll draw you a picture.)
I'm a jack of all trades, master of one.
Oh yeah, also. I guess it's pretty much a well known fact that this isn't my first account anymore. So there's no use hiding it. But I've got quite a bit of stuff on this one too, namely my first storygame and commendations, so I don't think I'll be switching back over.
So just imagine that there's
+411 points (not counting 21 of them since those are the free as soon as you make an account thing)
+8 unfinished stories
+A join date of 6/19/2014
On this account.
It's hard seeing the one you love descend into madness.
This takes place a little before the comic I'm making called Alchemy Brothers. Hence the name of the story game. (There's not much to the comic yet. It's really quite pathetic so far. I'll link it when there's something decent to it.)
Anyway, there's some minor fourth wall breakage, skeletons and monsters with magic hats and gloves and science/technology, good vs bad, all that.
If you just click through without using your items, I'm afraid it's going to be a bit more on the linear side. More than half of the story is accessible only be using Energy Manipulation in different ways on different pages. There are 9 possible endings. 1 without using Energy Manipulation at all.
~There is some eye-killing changed coloured text.
~1st person present tense
Undertale belongs to tobyfox - in no way shape or form is this supposed to be cannon material. This is my own theory on their backstory, and some far fetched inclusion with gaster and all that.
I would recommend you play the real game first to catch all the little things, but it is not required to understand the story. There will be a page accessible at all times that explains the basics of the world and how I interpret things if you need it.

It's some message in Webdings, and then morse code or some shit, also in webdings. I can't remember what exactly it was. When I put it in, I'd gotten like, 2 hours of sleep the night before and my computer class is early in the morning. But yeah, that's supposed to be there. Some sort of extra tidbit for those willing to actually look it up.
It originally was something in plain english along the lines of "I'm glitching over the text box. I'm not supposed to break the fourth wall? Oh. Sorry."
But then I'm like "naaaaahhhhh that's too boring let's make it random gibberish instead. except it's not gibberish."
Edit: I think the message might be somewhere along the lines of "I'm the memory of the past"
still no clue what that morse code thing is.
Edit2: Morse code I think is "This isn't right. What's happening?", referring to the glitchiness of the thing.

I mentioned in the list of bugs that there's apparently something is fucked with the summary because it'll only display that one no matter who you kill. I wrote endings for all the other people and thought I programed it properly, but I guess not. It'll be fixed tomorrow.
Kill mom: She dies from some sort of lung thing. Garreth goes on to be a lonely depressed loner.
Kill kid: Kid dies from being sick from the black mold in the house, whether he was raised by his mother or his father. Ralph makes his breakthrough half a month late but saves people anyway.

DO NOT REPLY TO THIS POST
I will be updating it as bugs come along.
Annoyances/bugs I've noticed since the last time I've been able to work on it:
-The textbox moves a little bit frequently
-Somewhere, there's a word or two that gets cut off
-For the second character set, under the explore option, they're switched
-I just realized the green text at the end is annoying too. Too light.
-Apparently if you kill Morice, Ralph dies instead? I'll have to look into that more.
-Okay, fuck. Turns out that there's something wrong with the summary at the end, and will only show the same thing no matter who dies.
I will be working on it more tomorrow, so I'll (hopefully) be able to fix the bugs then.
Didn't realize the bug about the summary, otherwise I wouldn't have posted it yet.

Like, an actual game game thingy. With sprites and arrow keys and buttons to press. This is my final project in my Game Design class.
So yeah. Lemme know if there's anything else. The link there should work. My friend used it and is playtesting it now.
There is a small bit of sound in it. So beware. I was planning on adding background music too, but I didn't have enough time.
I've also been thinking about converting it to a cys story here, because then there'd be the ability to have a lot more options. I don't know how I would do the explore bit though.
Altogether: I spent almost 2 months on this? If I did my calculations correct, then I spent around 200 hours on this thing. Which is pretty.... disappointing, given how short it is, and that it's still buggy.
Historical Figures on 3/5/2018 1:24:09 AM
"Your Score: 60%
History Bachelor's Degree!
You know enough historical figures to have graduated from college. Well done!"
I know shit about history.
I fail almost every single history class I take.
I guessed on over half of them.
I mean like.
Just random guessing, with two options, you're bound to get 50% right unless you're trying to get them wrong.
So I feel like 60% is just barely better than blindly guessing, and is a lonnnng ways away from a history bachelor degree.
Glorious Sleep on 2/27/2018 7:45:35 PM
I don't have a 'regular basis'.
Sometimes I'll go an entire week with only 3-5 hours a night, while other times, I pass out for 12 hours at a time.
I guess 'regular basis'
I get 4-10 hours a night.
It's not very often I go over ten, though I've slept for as long as 13 hours straight.
Last night, I got 6 hours.
Night before, 9.
A couple times last week, 5.
Pulled an all nighter.
Friday to saturday, got about 10-ish.
I've also noticed that it doesn't really matter how much sleep I got the night before, I feel pretty much the same. Unless I pulled an allnighter, or only got 3 hours of sleep. 4 hours, it's 50/50 whether I feel fine or feel like crap. Occasionally I feel like crap on 5 hours. Other than that, it's pretty much the same.
Writing/art collaborations! on 2/24/2018 9:03:18 PM
Hey! Sorry I'm taking so long!
I've got some more progress done on it - I've finished the father and I'm working on the son. I've never done something of that style/quality with people interacting before, so it's a bit of a challenge there.
My art teacher, who's a bit scatterbrained, told the class of the Congressional Art Competition yesterday (all fancy sounding and shit.) And the deadline is march 24th I believe. Which would be all good and everything if we didn't have to mail the thing to somewhere in Georgia, and have all sorts of other requirements met like framing and such. Which means the real deadline is like, a week or two from now.
The winner gets their artwork put up in Cannon Tunnel, which I believe is a building either connected to or really close to the white house and is a high traffic area, and two plane tickets to fly over and see it. Highschool students only, and judging by the previous winners, I think I might stand a chance. ^^' So currently, that's taking priority. As soon as I'm done with that, I'll be getting right back to your piece.
So again, sorry! I will be finishing it though, even if it might take me a while. At most, it should be two weeks. That's worst case scenario - it's more likely to be sooner than that.

Heheheheh, I like it. It's all glowy. ^_^
Writing/art collaborations! on 2/19/2018 8:57:51 PM
I wasn't expecting it to be so violent.
Might even draw two scenes from this one. Getting the stream setup, might take me a moment.
Big plans for this one - it might take me two or six streams to finish it fully. >_>
Ending the stream for today - this is what I got so far. Still needta do the hair, and then the boy against the wall there. Needta refine the clothing a bit and smooth out the skin tones too. Roughly 3-4 hours so far?
The Arty Corner - any requests? on 2/19/2018 2:08:36 PM
Feel free to post whatever art you guys do, and open up requests yourself too. ^_^ I'd love to see it. It's always interesting seeing other styles and such.
Anyway, this is mostly because I've been having an insatiable need to draw for whatever reason. I'll be taking a few requests, though the ones from the writing prompts thread are going to have priority of course.
Requests aren't first come first serve. It's mostly just what I feel like drawing right now.
I'll be posting when I'm doing a livestream of your requests and things from the writing prompts and everything if you want to watch. Just curious though - is there anyone interested in me livestreaming other things too? I'm probably going to get started on my comic cover in a few minutes while I wait for requests to come in. I still need to figure out what the title is for it though, since I'm not so sure on 'Alchemy Brothers' anymore.
