W-Wait… do you mean for all of them? ._. omg, bless you. Elbaite and Alaeru effectively have the same answers, because they are my sonas :D Maxixe is my villain gemsona, so her answers are a different.
4: How does your OC behave typically under severe stress?
Alæru ( / Elbaite) : Alæru goes into hyper-adrenaline primal survival mode when under extreme stress. Whether this is a quiet and calm state, or a loud and violent one depends on the scenario. Her various senses are easily overwhelmed. If anything threatening is added into the mix, she becomes protective, vicious, and focused on “escaping to safety”… namely a calm, natural area. Protecting any loved ones, natural habitats, or “innocents” is her number one priority above this. Personal safety is readily sacrificed for most all living things (except enemies, naturally), regardless of how frightened, defensive and triggered she is. Llyr: He stays terrifingly calm to calculate the path of least resistance and/or of greatest benefit. Unlike his twin (and in spite of the “strong” “i’m a king goddammit” vibe he tries to throw around, uhhg), Llyr cares deeply for living things, his family, and his people – he will nearly always put them before himself if anyone else is affected by a bad situation. He rarely loses his cool under any type of stress; unless a certain favorite sibling ((Rhea – I’m lookin’ at you @cyanea-capillata )), his familiar, or Alæru happens to be in trouble. Nyx: Nyx is either a mix of calm and avoidant, or bullying and violently defensive? He is very defensive even when not truly threatened; his ego is everything. So, when under real stress, heheh… oh jeez. He’s a quick-witted, self-preserving demi-god of death. He’ll do whatever it takes to get out quickly and unscathed, ideally. Although he prefers the coward’s way out, he’s also incredibly strong and likes to show off, so I suppose his reaction depends on what, or who, is causing the stress. If it’s anyone he has something to prove to, he’ll become confrontational. Gwenythe: Gwen keeps her cool no matter what, and rarely shows any emotion in any type of stressful environment, situation, or confrontation. She’s such a powerful and experienced warrior, no one really intimidates her, save for a few gods and special monsters. Gwenythe uses her advantages in battle and other tough scenarios to keep the few people she cares for protected. She cares little for her own life and will weather anything. Seriously. Fuckin’ anything. She’s pure af. Fiore: Fiore is a precious emotional bon bon and she must be protected, because she doesn’t handle stressful situations well at all. She cries easily when overwhelmed!! And she’s so empathetic, and sympathetic, almost any bad times that befall anyone will make her upset/inspired to help them simultaneously. In spite of her being quick to tears and easily afraid, she tries to overcome her fears – and she will always buck up to protect her friends, animals, and plants when they are in danger. She fights while crying a lot. Heheheh. She prefers peace and compromise in any situation, and detests conflict. Sahar: Sahar is a demigod of justice, and easily the most fair of all the characters in their universe – this plays into how they reacts to stressful scenarios as well. They are level-headed and seek a course of action that benefits all life in their dominion; personal safety, ego, and relationships are irrelevant to them even in times of fright or confrontation. Like Fiore and Rhea, they prefer a peaceful compromise over fighting, but Sahar definitely is not fully opposed to bringin the smackdown!! They will do what is necessary to keep the universe in balance. Brais: Brais doesn’t become outwardly emotional at first. He definitely becomes less patient and meticulous… If pushed too far verbally/emotionally/personally during a stressful situation, or if someone breaks the rules of nature and magic to an extreme degree, he’ll burst with as much energy as a magnitude 10 earthquake!! He tries to be calm to do his job, he tries to be the bigger person always and usually always is, but he is so emotionally invested in protecting the worlds, he often can’t help but eventually become passionate in energetic situations – especially stressful ones. Draegan: This asshole. Uhhg. He gets defensive as fuck, patronizing, violent, and enjoys harming,torturing, and ultimately getting revenge on whatever upsets him. He doesn’t handle stress well at all and often throws tantrums if things don’t go his way. Torben: Torben is hella chill… it’s almost like he’s permablazed, he’s so calm in terrible situations. He’s such a buddy and a calming pal, he just tries to make sure everyone else is okay and doesn’t worry much about anything else. He accepts bad situations incredibly well and is always able to calmly think of a solution, if there is one. He detests fighting and nearly always runs away from violent confrontation. Maxixe: Maxixe becomes huffy and angry when anything doesn’t go her way! She knows she’s brilliant so she rarely loses her cool, unless someone outwits her or a situation is simply too out of hand for her skillset…. then she goes …. I mean, she just goes. She’ll do whatever it takes to win, survive, or escape – she’ll often use irratic and irrational methods of inflicting damage to get away or kill whatever is bothering her.
5: What calms your OC down the best under severe stress?
Alæru: Spending time in the old growth forest, ideally with freshwater bodies nearby. She prefers to be alone, or with just her familiar, Rhea, or nature spirits (Rhea and her familiar actually calm her down much faster than just Alaeru by herself, but she’s a dumbass who hates to ask for help). Anyone else is questionable – they might only stress her out more. Gardening and drawing are also excellent stress relievers for her. Llyr: Swimming (he loves oceans and salt water best), hanging out with his wolf familiar/wolf pals, and watching Alaeru draw or grow flowers, probably. Weirdo. He needs help when stressed, though! Rhea and Alaeru are both excellent at calming him down by talking through things with him… he has trouble seeking out help so he tends to bottle things up and not talk about them ever. Llyr learns to communicate his feelings much better over time thanks to both of them c: Nyx: Like his brother, Nyx enjoys swimming and hanging out with the wolves. He prefers rivers and freshwater bodies to relax around… but his form of relaxing is very different. Nyx has a tendency to hunt to relieve stress, and often uses water pools to stalk from. Gwenythe: Before she made friends, Gwenythe would clean her weapons, armor, and home to relieve stress. That’s it, poor babs ;^; Cleaning is a great outlet, but she’s a warrior who gets in weird situations and isn’t often at home, so she tends to bottle up all her emotions and issues while on missions or doing her duty as a demigod. Gwen’s friends, mostly Alæru because she’s such a pushy thing, quickly learn to help her vent and help her with her problems. Fiore: Fiore loves spending time with her animal companions (mainly petting them, giving them treats, making them flower crowns, ya know~) best!! This is her favorite way to relieve stress other than planting flowers! She also loves to cook, and she has an affinity for mortal festivals and celebrations revolving around food. Sahar: To relieve stress, Sahar sings and writes, and they are also excellent at caligraphy! They prefer to sing while alone, unless they trust whoever is listening. Brais: Brais… has… a rock garden… he grows crystals in the earth and names all of them, because as an earth demigod, he’s all about the rocks. Sometimes when they get old enough, they come to life in odd ways. Whenever he’s stressed out, he usually tends extra to his crystal garden. Draegan: Fuck… I don’t know, he kills people?? Tortures people?? Designs new outfits for himself??? Creates monsters in a demon lab????? don’t even worry about what he does, except do. be very concerned. i am >_> Torben: Torben likes to watch funny things, eat good food, go on adventures with his friends, and basically just create good memories to override the bad, stressful times. He’s all about pretending stressful things don’t happen or exist, if possible! and he is constantly trying to force everyone to just “go to the beach”. Bless him. Maxixe: To relieve stress, Maxixe yells about her problems to anyone who will listen, and then she’ll groom herself like the diva she is. So much grooming. Nails, hair, clothes, all of it. It usually makes her feel much better, actually!
10: What type of people does your OC idolize the most?
Alæru: Alæru is inspired by anyone who protects nature and cares about living things other than dominant sentients. If you are thoughtful about life, she’ll take a shine to you.
Llyr: Llyr values people who balance intellect with compassion and a sense of moral justice. Nyx: Nyx rarely idolizes anyone. He values intelligence and rare power, preferably in a warrior/something strong. Gwenythe: Gwenythe comes from a society of cold, violent, and powerful beings. Genuine compassion, empathy, and kindness without personal gain are the things she idolizes most in a person. Fiore: Fiore idolizes anyone who brings unique beauty, passionate art, and new life into the world! She is so full of admiration and love. Sahar: Sahar idolizes a rare few. They are an ancient demigod who has seen much, and can be harsh in their assessment of others for good reason. Sahar idolizes those who are self sacrificing, who practice compassionate justice in every aspect of their lives, and who live by the rules of universal balance. They have a soft spot for Rhea, who is one of the few who fits their criteria of noble. Brais: Brais is a demigod of the earth, and because his dominion is the basis for all life but it is not often alive itself in the typical way, the stone is often forgotten. Anyone who respects earth, and the world they live on, how plates of stone move and shape lands… he digs ya. You like and respect the giant rock you call home? He’ll like you back ~ Draegan: Rare power, as well as superficial beauty. Most mortal beings are not up to his standards in any way, and most of the immortals are not on good terms with him, so he doesn’t really idolize anyone except Gods and Alæru (because she’s a unique hybrid/abomination who breaks all the rules of magic, rude). Torben: Torben idolizes anyone who can make him/other people laugh really hard on a consistent basis! Maxixe: Maxixe idolizes power combined with intelligence and style. She has high standards, but if a gem of power also happens to be smart, she’s gonna swoon~ I can’t really see her being impressed by humans tbh.
19: Is there anything others often admire about your OC?
Alæru: She is stupid-brave, acts confident, and is always willing to make the sacrifice play. She also protects things most people don’t care about or give a second thought to. Llyr: He is incredibly giving, loyal, and clever. Everyone likes a compassionate death god! ((Well.. except his brother and some immortals who don’t die/could give a fuck if he’s nice to souls in his care because they think they’ll never be one of them?)) Nyx: Nyx is nearly always in control of a situation, and easily commands attention. He’s also irritatingly smart. Gwenythe: … She’s a beautiful muscular battle queen who is also secretly super kind??? She can carry you to space and back??? she can give you weapons for your birthday???? omg Fiore: Fiore is so beautiful inside and out! She’s one of those people who is incredibly kind, loving, devoted, respectful, and giving. She always checks herself for selfishness and is very conscious of other’s needs. You’d have to be jerk not to at least appreciate someone like that just a little bit? Right? ;-; Sahar: Sahar is the ultimate council leader to me, or at least, as close as these poor demigods are gonna get in their universe, which is saying a lot! They are very respectable and respect others, even their enemies, and their brand of moral justice focuses on sympathy and empathy rather than law – unless universal laws of balance come into play, which are basic and the basis for reality staying together???? They are very strong and try to protect everyone. Brais: Brais is amazingly creative in his mineral garden work, an amazing listener who remembers everything about you, and so quietly caring. He has a heart of gold, although it may take others some time to learn his wonderful qualities because of his natural shyness. Draegan: …. he’s… super creatively evil??? he thinks of horrible things that you would never even fathom??? idk if that’s… admirable…. yepperoo…. i swear to god, this jackass Torben: People often admire Torben’s magnetic attitude, his upbeat vibes, and ability to make others happy/feel at ease. :D Maxixe: People really admire her clever banter, hair, fashion, and looks… until they get to know her. Then she’s just a scary manipulative bitch. c: hehehehheheheheh.
Thank you so much for sending this bb! You’re the absolute best. Also if you read this , ily
23. Do they have a good memory? Short term or long term? Are they good with names? Or faces? [nate, maybe with bonus Zack barging in XD]
Natticus: Why am I ‘Nate’ now? I’m not a yokai guy or whatever ;>ᆺ> I like to think I’m pretty smart though~ Milus is smart too but like, a different kind of smart. It’s tough to explain-
Zarrus: You’re obviously dumb Red if ya can’t even s- HEY! You callin’ me names now brick-butt!?
Natticus: As you can see, Zack is bad with names. And he might not be that smart :b
Zarrus: Oi, I can answer for myself :/ I’m not dumb, I’m just a different kinda smart than Milus or Red that’s all. Humph.
Natticus: Hmmm, I do get forgetful if I somehow end up devolving into a Pichimon. It’s tough to retain information when you’re that small ^^; I don’t end up dying or getting myself killed as often as Zack has though at least.
Zarrus: You’re probably just weak because you always run away from battles. I’m a skilled fighter ( ˇωˇ )
Natticus: I don’t run, if I can outsmart them then I don’t even need to fight them in the first place (¬ᆺ¬) You couldn’t even remember what the difference was between a Gotsumon and a Meteormon, one is a much higher level-
Zarrus: Psh, who cares, just knock ‘em in the water and they’ll sink to the bottom either way… I’ll make sure they don’t surface; easy targets makes for easy data >:3
Natticus: …See I don’t need to hoard my data and buff up if I’m smart enough to pick only the fights I know I can win. Duh. If you mess up then you’re dead-
Zarrus: But then I know what not to do!
Natticus: (-ᆺ-); I think you’ve cycled too many times if you think that’s a good strategy, but whatever. As a digimon, when in the digital world we don’t really need to remember ‘names’ the way humans do, but it’s good to know how to address a digimon if you want to get acquainted with them. Every ‘mon is different though. As such, it’s important to remember faces, or other details, very well, I don’t have any trouble with that~
Zarrus: I only remember the stuff that’s important, so rarely I’ll forget someone or something-
Natticus: Uh huh. “Rarely”. Sure.
Zarrus: Shut up Red!
Natticus: Grrr, my name’s Natticus here, or did you forget that too!?
Zarrus: I said I only remember *important* stuff ya moronmon!
Milus: *ahem* Why don’t you two calm yourselves down and finish answering the questions.
Zarrus: …What were we on about again? Memories?
Natticus: Well that’s your answer, my turn now; I haven’t cycled too many times but I feel like I remember most of my time in the Digital World, except when I was a babymon ^^;
aaahhh the screenshot though ;_; one of my favourite scenes in the whole game
Thank you!! I love that scene so much too, it’s just full of drama But the screenshot isn’t mine (I haven’t got the luxury of the PC version of DAI dehe), it’s a courtesy from dear @razildor ♥ The original is this one, I just edited it a bit with photoshop
Yooo I’m again replying all in one because I got many! I’m tagging the ones who asked off anon, hope it’s okay!
@guesswhatruru my first oc was one of those things you come up with when you’re 11. A girl with wings. Named Fly. How very original ahahah. Here’s a thing I did last year for a comparison with a super old drawing:
Nonny I’m replying the OC asks here, the inquisitor asks later ;) 1. Already answered.
5. If you could make only one of your OCs popular/known, who would it be? I think I’d pick my Zelda OC, Lotte. I’ve been developing her since 2008 (that’s the reason we almost share names haha I was 13) and she’s the one I know more about. Would take almost no effort to take her out of the whole Legend of Zelda context.
14. Introduce an OC with a tragic backstory
I don’t have any! Unless you consider Gillyflower Cousland, but I didn’t come up with the human noble origin, Bioware did haha. I have one with a tragig story tho! My interpretation of the Queen of the Woodland Realm.
10. Introduce an OC with a complicated design?
Oh, I don’t think I have any, unless outfit designs count! If it does then most of my ocs have a complicated design since I really really like layers of clothes. <:
21. Your most artistic OC
Okay, this one is confused. Does it mean the one I consider most artistic in looks or the one whos most “gifted” artistically? We’ll never know hahah However, I’ll g for the latter. I’d say Amelia. She really likes music. She plays the lute quite well and loves to dance.
31. Pick one OC of yours and explain what their tumblr blog would be like (what they reblog, layout, anything really)
I pick Gilly! Her blog would have one of those minimalistic themes and shed’s pick white and gold thones. She’d mostly blog about food. Bakery of all sorts. Always trying to keep that white/gold color scheme. She’d also write some super angry personal posts about social justice. An aestethic longsword here and there.
1. Already answered!
11. Is there any OC of yours you could describe as a “sunshine”?
Leo. He’s Lotte’s third son. Very quiet, talks only if it’s very necessary, always smiling, always wishing to help. Owns a flower shop when he’s older. Here are some doodles from last year:
26. Have you ever had to change your OC’s design or something else about them against your will?
Nope. Unless you count a few designs for school.
43. Do you have any certain type when you create your OCs? Do you tend to favour some certain traits or looks? It’s time to confess
YEAH. VERY VERY MUCH.
Also I seem to really dig freckles and light colored eyes on dark skin tones.
22. Is there any OC of yours people tend to mischaracterize? If yes, how?
No, I don’t think so. Mostly because I either don’t talk much about an oc or because I talk a lot about them, making them be known pretty well.
40. Any fond memories linked to your characters? Feel free to share! OCs always helped me going through difficult moments of my life. The stories I made up in my mind being a way to escape reality. So I have plenty of fond memories. Especially of the ones I share my cousin @onone-san.
20. Do any of your OCs sing? If they sing, care to share more details (headcanon voice, what kind of songs they like etc)?
Shame on me, I don’t have an answer to this question! Garlan Lavellan (Amelia’s bother) does sing but I haven’t thought of an headcanon voice for him yet!
