Original Character Thoughtform Animation: A Personal Take
I’m going to go ahead and say now and this is not an informational post on how to create thoughtforms or constructs or servitors. Those posts are a dime a dozen, and if you’re looking for that shit I will kindly direct you to the following bullets:
- How do you accidentally create a servitor? + Further Reading
- Thoughts on Thoughtforms
- How to make a Servitor.
You can dig from there as, I assure you, this is easy information to find! People are literally out there making accidental thoughtforms. It’s not difficult. If you already read my precursor babble then you’ll know that, if you’re a writer, you’ve probably already got thoughtforms running around. Depending on the amount of constraints or systems you’ve applied to the character they will be able to manifest more or less consistently pre-magic ~woowoo~ bull shit. Still, this post is going to be tackling some of the components, tendencies, issues, and things that are worth considering or taking advantage of in one’s goal to animate their own OCs.
This is an endeavor I hold near and dear to my heart, and while I’m not here to preach or tell you what you should or shouldn’t do, understand that the beginning of these guys’ existence is going to be largely dependent on your relationship with them. This shit takes time and effort, they’re not necessarily servitors you can just leave to do their own thing and expect things to be okay. This is going to be asking for way more involvement on your part then most any other constructive process. Don’t half-ass this.
With that, let’s begin.
