character cores

The problem with writing outside the homestuck fandom is that homestuck makes writing in-character so easy. Homestuck is long af and full of pesterlogs to examine. They’re easy to find, easy to pick apart, full of well-developed verbal patterns specific to every character, even color-coded with character-specific quirks. Other pieces of fiction don’t have that. Books have dialogue, sure, but you have to leaf through them to find certain scenes and the characters don’t always have verbal patterns manufactured to stand out. Visual-audio fiction is even worse because you have to find the meaty dialogue that reveals the character. For a movie, it means watching it, and for a game, you gotta like look that shit up. Staying in-character is just harder, at least on the perfectionistic level homestuck got me used to.

Previously seen on this post. I’m making a separate post for this trend based off of the interest it received. 

Another reason for this post and trend is I have seen some people expressing concern about using the other because of how the ‘____ deserves better’ trend became peculiar to the struggle of LGBT and characters of color faced in media in 2016. From what I’ve seen, what we want for Kara is different than the fight we had for Lexa. This isn’t about LGBT issues specifically, and we don’t want to confuse the two, especially with the anniversary of Lexa’s death coming up in a couple of weeks. 

Instead, this trend is for us to express our concerns we have with the show as a whole this season, not only with Kara’s character development but the treatment of other core characters on the show like James or M’gann or even Alex and Kara’s relationship as sisters being shoved to the side.  (This is a great post going into that with references.)

It’s not about ship wars. It’s not about bashing one character or couple. It’s for us to go to the network and creators and tell them that this is not the show we signed on for in season one. It’s us going to the network and creators as a unified front and saying we miss the show we fell in love with. 

It’s us going to them and asking, “Where is our Supergirl?”

I need Pete Nowalk to explain to me WHY they decided to kill Wes Gibbins other than shock value. Because Wes was still the character will more story lines to offer. Are you seriously telling me that Wes Gibbins, the core of the show, with a growing relationship with Annalise, a potential story line if he was indeed the snitch, his case with the Mahoney, a relationship with Laurel, a potencial baby on the way, the character that gets the core 5 moving and creates the complix, drama and tension can be more disposable that Frank Delfino, a character who basically has no other story line to go? Killed Annalise’s baby, and has not relationship with any of them anymore.

Are you telling me you chose a white character that will most likely get white redemption for being a disgusting person over a black mentally ill man? I’m done. HTGAWM is cancelled.

Kanan in S3 - A Missed Opportunity

Alright…. This has been a long time coming but last week’s episode is the final straw.

All season I’ve been waiting for them to develop Kanan’s disability and by extension change how he interacts with the Ghost crew most notably with Hera. But Lucasfilm have really dropped the ball with this and it’s getting unbearable.

Since Holocrons of Fate, Kanan’s blindness hasn’t once impacted how he operates on a day to day basis. He can fire the cannons, he can run around without guidance, he can fight. I’m not saying he shouldn’t be able to do these things, but his disability doesn’t get acknowledged nearly enough.

It’s particularly aggravating in regards to Hera. They were so used to being able to communicate non-verbally with glances and smiles in the first two seasons, and since losing that, Lucasfilm frankly haven’t tried to put something in its place.

I know run time is short, and there’s a lot to get through, but small gestures mean a lot and would be subtle rewarding hints to mature and attentive watchers of the show.

It’s the first day of the Armored Core Character Design Challenge! Here’s the ground work, artists!:

The Rules:

-Each designated month I will have chosen a Raven (nickname given to Pilots of Armored Cores) from the in-game Arena Rankings to focus on. Every pilot in the Arena has a character description that functions as their backstory, describing their personality, fighting style, reasons for becoming a Raven, as well as relations to other Pilots in-game. Using the character’s description, dialogue (if available) and the appearance/load-out of their AC, you will design these various, mercenaries. Based on your interpretation of these clues, create a character you think fits the profile!

The world of Armored Core 3 is not a pretty one;

“Set in a post-apocalyptic future, Armored Core 3 depicts a world where mankind has sought refuge underground after a catastrophic global nuclear war broke out on the surface. Those who survived formed a subterranean society called Layered. Layered is ruled by an AI simply known as The Controller, which dictates nearly everything that goes on in this world. The two major corporations, Mirage and Crest Industries along with a smaller group known as Kisaragi, all vie for dominance and control over Layered’s land and assets. All is not well with The Controller however, and odd events begin to occur. With the number and scope of these errors, some might even go so far as to suggest that the system may be failing…”

Within Layered, the Arena was created, an organized colosseum where Ravens are allowed to fight each other using their mechs as a form of Public Spectacle, winning sums of money, AC parts, and fame amongst the masses. Being a Raven is not an easy job however, though lucrative, it is also highly dangerous. These mechs push the limits of human ability, and one must be highly skilled in order to operate them. Pilots must be ready to face death head on, knowing full-well that their value as a Raven holds only enough water as their own abilities can provide. Ravens are usually contracted as Mercenaries, and with the political climate rising in the cramped and grim world of Layered, one may find themselves under the gun of another Credit desperate Pilot…
