Sea Spell

… I think I officially have a soda addiction.

You know those "book by you" sites where you could be the hero of your own romance story and whatnot? Well… I got one. It's called "Sea Spell" and I made it about Vika and Kyrill. I love it! It gave me so many ideas, and the characters in the book are almost exactly how Vika and Kyrill would act. Plus the book itself is better than I thought it was going to be. I definitely recommend getting one of those books — you won't be disappointed! I personally stayed away from the vampire one, though (I think it's called First Bite), I'm not big into vampires; I think they're grotesquely overrated (not to sound like a pretentious blowhard hahaha).

Other than that, I'm really getting into this one band Counterparts. At first I thought they were generic metalcore what with the constant screaming, but now I think they're really good! I just got into them, but I already love almost every song I heard by them. Also, Coheed and Cambria is really good too. My favourite album by Coheed and Cambria is "Year of the Black Rainbow" and my favourite songs by Counterparts are "Cursed", "Decay", "Wither", "Compass", and "Debris."

Anyway, so I've been doing a lot of writing lately, as well as well as planning out the art for the story of MDC. I actually want to get the story up soon, as a webcomic! :D I have all the materials for it, I just need to draw draw draw…

So next up on the character roster: Rose!

(WARNING: spoilers and all that)

Rose Connelly: Uptown Princess )
Again, please tell me what you think!!

Anyway, I'm going to wrap up for now. See ya!!

So I realise that I haven't written in over a year! I am so so so so so so sorry about neglecting this blog. I truly am. Things have been pretty hectic and a lot has happened over the past year and a half. But I also haven't been updating due to laziness. =/ I'll take you back to right after I last updated…

Around the autumn of 2012 I rekindled a romantic relationship with someone I will call "J" (not the J I talked about in a previous entry — and by the way, our band broke up). A lot of drama happened with that… Basically, it proved to be a huge mistake, as they were in love with three other people, and I was in love with someone else myself. I still am in love with that person, but I was really hurt due to J, because I wanted to focus on just them and put my feelings for the other person on the backburner, even though J was always thinking about the other people. And then they accused of me leaving them for the person I'm in love with, even though I didn't and they left me multiple times for someone else. I made a point not to talk about the other person in front of J (for the most part), but they talked about the other people they had feelings for excessively to me. So, all in all, my love life has been mostly terrible. But I'm never taking J back again, though I wish we could be friends still since we've been friends for a long time. Regardless, this spanned for about… 9 months? Until I finally gave up. I don't need that crap in my life.

I saw The Birthday Massacre three times since my last entry. It was awesome!!! They remembered me every time!!!

My beloved cat, who I adored so so much, died of feline leukemia in late November 2012. Then my grandpa, the Russian Orthodox priest, also succumbed to his cancer in January 2013, right after Old-Calendar Christmas (which is 7 January). He was diagnosed with lymphoma a year before, but it turned into also leukemia, which is what he died from. It was so very, very sad, and it affected a lot of people in the Russian Orthodox community. Right around that period J broke up with me for the first time. But yeah, I used to have philosophical conversations with my grandpa, and he took such good care of me. He was very funny and very smart and a great father figure to a lot of people. He was also a total badass, supposedly he'd performed exorcisms before and succeeded. In fact, my godmother — who is my mom's younger sister — told me that demons used to torment her, but he did a moleben and they went away. That's it! I miss him terribly; we all do.

The succeeding months were largely uneventful aside from the whole drama with J. On a lighter note, I've been getting a lot of ideas for MDC; in fact, I completely changed it around in some ways. I've decided to have Kyrill, who is Vika's main love interest, as the other main protagonist of the story, and have the books be half his art diary too. So one chapter is Vika, the next chapter is Kyrill, the next chapter is Vika, etc.. You get what I mean. It largely focuses on their battle with a demonic entity known as the Ash Lady (who kind of looks like Slenderman but is in fact female Satan), but it also mainly focuses on the relationship between Vika and Kyrill. So it's a love story as well as a fantasy story. I should probably update my user info…

Anyway, the island of Saltsong (where the story takes place) is up by Maine, off the coast of a (fictional) industrial city called Castle Rock (anybody get the reference? C:), which you can see from Full Moon Beach. By the way, the village where Vika and Kyrill and some other characters live in isn't called Soundscarp anymore. It's called Full Moon Bay. And Saint Féchín's Academy was built in White Crossings, a town north of Full Moon Bay. It's a huge, gothic castle with emerald-green floral Victorian wallpaper and Victorian sconces and its school colours are now black and emerald. Its mascot is still the raven. The uniforms are:

White oxford shirts or white polos for boys
Black pants or black knee-length shorts for boys (but girls can wear the pants too)
A black blazer with the school crest for both boys and girls
A black or green tie for both boys and girls
White blouses with oxford collars for girls
Emerald-and-black plaid kilt skirts for girls

However, you can somewhat customise the uniform.

Truly, Saltsong is a beautiful, magical place.

So, besides that, I gave up on doing Rose's character sheet. I decided to work on Finn instead. He's not a new character, but he's new in the whole main MDC character roster. The character roster is as follows:

Finn McCormick — gold
Geist Zabat — silver
Rose Connelly — pink
James Hidalgo — red
Lain Tachibana — orange
Cedric Cellestino — yellow
Davey Ross — yellow

Dem Foy — lime-green
Lee Desai — green
Cassielle von Siebold — turquoise
Pax de Croft — blue
Vika Foy — indigo/blue-violet
Kyrill Voronov — violet
Morgana Lockheart — purple

I'll just post some basic information on Finn… (I'll post more details some other time.)

WARNING: Spoilers!

Finn McCormick: Golden Boy-Next-Door )

So? Tell me what you think!

Well, I shall go for now, but I'll try to update much more frequently from now on. See ya!! 

Flopdolls.

Hello, hello! Writing again. I've been very nauseous the past two days, but it's finally subsided. I didn't get much sleep the other night so the next day I was all energetic and anxious, and I felt great. But then the night following was hell! I was so nauseous and tired. Now, tonight I'm not doing anything but I was so sick in the car that I was glad to get outside and go home. :C

Anyway, I didn't come here to incessantly complain about my personal ailments, I came here to talk about some updates!! They're minor, but I did create this journal to talk about MDC and to record updates and such.

I'm almost finished with the sketch part of my first two character sheets!! They're of the same character, who is a protagonist of mine but not the main protagonist Vika. I have a colour coded order of how I do my main characters.

Pink--Rose
Red--James
Orange--Lain
Yellow--Davey
Yellow-green--Dem
Green--Lee
Turquoise--Cassielle
Blue--Pax
Indigo--Vika
Violet/Purple--Kyril
Violet Red--Morgana

So, Rose is first (even though I guess technically she should be last), and I'm almost finished with sketching her two character sheets but then I have to colour them in. I have to get a tracing pad and a B pencil, and then transfer the sketches to a watercolour sheet. I have to finish up the sketches first, and then I'll paint them. I'm also done with Rose's profile, so when I'm finally done with her concept sheet I'll post everything! I can't wait. James is next, by the way.

By the end of next week I'm going to try to at least start colouring the concept sheets, and I'm gonna ask my friend who lives with me if I can borrow her desk because sadly I do not have one. But I'll be getting one soon, yay!


So it's:

Sketches: Almost done! 4.5 out of 5 stars
Colouring: Haven't yet started 0 out of 5 stars
Profile: Done! 5 out of 5 stars

Hopefully it'll be up soon!

OK, now I'll post a survey that I found a while ago.

Writer's survery! )

OK, well, that was fun and long. I'll write some other time.
