Cleaning my hard drive of all the Dragon Age doodles I never finished. So here, have the most punk ass bitch m!Lavellan to ever walk the earth. And possibly the only man to ever rock plaidweave. He’s got vallaslin he saw in a dream and an eye that allows him to see into the Fade. Refers to himself in the third person as “THE RAVEN.” Gary Stu incarnate.
mr G’s colleague hired me to revamp the chem lab’s security manuals and microsite so between breaks and goofing off like a noob i read SCP stuff at the cold af office and interpreted the materials as i see it. the second pic is a very basic database interface for SCP staff, ever since switching jobs i missed crafting UIs. i really want an SCP Foundation skin for my computers lmao
The sprite of “Gary Stu” from the 2010 April Fool’s prank, “Another Days Sim Date” was originally from a work called “Rose x Diary”.
Started and left unfinished in March 2010, it was my first attempt to create a point and click adventure (like Xolga and Mr. Toko). I decided to not continue the project due to poor scripting, a somewhat predictable and unoriginal story, and nothing really just clicked with me. Overall, it was supposed to be on the horror/drama side, but I think I failed to achieve that graphic wise.
Here’s how the story went:
(Note: A lot of these characters have the same names as the characters in Kingdom Days Sim Date. I tend to reuse names in projects that have been discontinued…)
A young boy wakes up in an unknown place. He doesn’t remember anything including his name and face. The place he is in seems to be a mansion in ruins, making it difficult to get around. As he moves about, he finds pieces and pages of an old diary belonging to boy named Daniel. The events written in the pages seem awfully familiar to him and he comes to realize that the diary must belong to him.
The diary and flashbacks eventually revealed that Daniel and his brother, David became orphans after their parents passed away. The mansion belonged to a man named Ferris who lived with his daughter, Rose. Ferris was a close friend of Daniel’s parents and allowed him and his brother to live with him.
As Daniel continues to search the mansion for clues, he finds Ferris’s body crushed under rubble and mourns his death. Later he discovers a closed off room and finds Rose. She refuses to speak and shows much discomfort around him. He finds more pages from his diary about the romance that bloomed between him and Rose, but some pages revealed that his brother was greatly jealous of him as he had a one sided crush on Rose. Daniel tries to ask Rose about the situation, but she still refuses to speak to him.
Daniel and Rose travel through the mansion together and eventually find his brother’s dead body. However, his death appears to be a murder as there is blood everywhere and a knife wedged in his chest. Daniel is initially shocked at the sight, but Rose embraces the lifeless body and cries. As Daniel tries to comfort Rose, she looks at him and mutters “Why, David?”
Our main character “Daniel” realizes that he is in fact not Daniel, but the jealous and troubled brother, “David” who killed Daniel. All of the events in the diary seemed familiar to him because he was always with Daniel. As David tries to collect his thoughts and as Rose weeps, another earthquake occurs. David attempts to convince Rose to escape the mansion with him, but she continues to whisper “I want to be with Daniel.” David hesitantly exits the room and leaves the mansion. From outside, he watches the mansion crumble to the ground.
I like to uphold a ‘make your character how you want’ opinion, but when I see a 15 year old who is a level 7 SHIELD agent and has secret super powers and can speak every language under the sun and is the unknown sibling of one of the Avengers, I’m sorry but I can’t get behind that. Make your character how you want but at least put effort into trying to make them semi-realistic?
