“I can’t wait for the next episode of Eldarya >w< I will stalk you ahah ! *rubs her hands*
But due to an hospitalization/recovery, I will not be present when it’s launched ): I trust the team with taking care of all that in any case ! (it was an expected operation, not an health problem, be reassured n_n )
This brings me to address something I really wanted to talk about for a moment :
During the last months, my role at Beemoov evolved a lot. I was asked, (and I’m also okay with it ) to take care of different projects. In order to be able to offer you more games. But obviously I’m not an octopus, and I can’t be at the oven and the mill at the same time. So I had to learn to DELEGATE. And it was really hard leaving my creations unfinished. But now it’s done !
What do I do now ? I am in charge of the universes of my games. I have to make sure that everything that’s produced is coherent and in line with what has been done since the start. Be it the storyboard, events, illustrations… all this together with a lot of meetings and other things with the various heads of the company (note: not so sure about the last sentence :X). Which takes a lot of time. With all these changes, I draw regularly, but unfortunately a lot less. So it has also been part of my new role to search for talentuous people to support me. The changes have been done softly on the games, I think it has worked well :) (not sure about that either…)
To sum up everything, the job of illustrator for MCL, just like for Eldarya has become a real team work, like a studio. It’s not rare to have five different people put hands on a single illustration. The outfits can be done by many hands too, with each person doing a different outfit for an event/episode etc…
I needed to say that, and for you to be aware, that behind every drawing (or scenario), even if I “guide” everything, now I’m very far from being the only one to intervene on it :)”
I think we can stop worrying about Moonlight Lovers now, since Chino is going to work on all the projects together ^^
guys OKAY listen. i never normally Speak Out but….. you know debate about theories can be really fun? like. the word discourse stems from communicative debate but it’s been reclaimed in this way that has come to mean not accepting there are other opinions and interpretations, alongside throwing buzzwords into the mix to invalidate another argument. also losing a respectful tone with each other so often (not all the time, but lbr!)
discussions - real discussions willing to take into other POVs - are genuinely so fun! like idk i remember at college i went to a debating society which was never my thing bc public speaking really makes me nervous haha but. it was so fun! and someone would make a HELLA SICK POINT on one side and you’d see the other person on the other side like “well… shit. okay damn. that’s … i don’t agree but that’s actually a good point and now my next point is compromised. BUT!!! A-HA! look at THIS!” and the exchanges were really 👀👀👀 in a way more positive way bc there was always a level of general acknowledgement it was just a debate at the end of the day. at the end you shake hands and that’s that lol.
you can still have heated passionate debate without it being an attack on each other or employing some tactics with certain usage of words to make the other side X and Y.
i think it’s important to remember that literally none of us can speak with full authority on stuff here, because we’re not the writers of the content. we can have our opinions and be critical. it’s gonna play out how it’s gonna play out, regardless of what we think or feel. at the end of the day, we are the audience and as a result our commentary is interpretive by nature. in fanworks we are transformative ect.
we all want to see something in a story. there are universal themes and sometimes there are more personal themes. despite taking a stance on something, there is always gonna be this undeniable level of subjectivity in some level just there because we are all individuals and it’s impossible for every single person to see things the same way. there’s also gonna be other points of view. AND THAT MAKES SENSE. bc we all want different things, we all relate to different things and have different experiences.
tbh there’s so much in this show that honestly would be so enjoyable and engaging to openly discuss together without animosity rather than conform to the way debate has regressed into something very hostile, demeaning and negative (often scary LOL) on this website.
“If your going to fall in love with me, here are some of the things you should know beforehand. I cry often. Whether it’s during a movie, a sad song on the radio, or a regular Sunday morning. I’ll cry even when I speak of things that have hurt me, even if they no longer hurt anymore. I am afraid of being left. And I am afraid of not being good enough. I will tell you the ways in which I hate myself, and not believe a single word you say when you disagree with each and every reason. You can tell me you love me countless times, but I will still be afraid of you learning me. Don’t blame yourself. I have to expect the worse, because I always get the worst. When I fall in love with you, I will love each crack in your skin and every freckle of light in your eyes. I will fall in love with the way you look while you’re sleeping, and the way your mouth curves when you say my name. I can be difficult to love, but for me loving you will always be so easy. All I ask is that you don’t give up on me, and in return, I will never give up on you. And I will love you with my entire heart. And if one day you decide to leave, I will still think highly of you. I will still remember the kind hearted person you are.”
