He comes from a long line of magicians, although he doesn’t have any family left. A few generations ago, his direct ancestry split from the magicians, so he doesn’t even know where to find them if there are any left.
He’s not very good at doing many tricks although he can pull off a few. He is the type of person to only do what he is confident in and struggles to grow. He ends up following Bae for the length of the story. He looks up to her and is jealous of her strength and ability to take action.
In the beginning, when he meets Bae, he acts as a sort of guide for her. He fakes confidence for her and tries to take her through the country. She realizes he isn’t very brave, but grows to appreciate him anyway and encourages his efforts.
I drew him wearing his performance clothes. He normally wears stuff that doesn’t stand out, but after travelling with Bae for a while, he dons these quite normally so he can be noticed. Bae and Trick sort of ground each other throughout the story. The two consider what is best for the other. She begins to see him as a little brother or younger companion that needs support and guidance.
Here are my other OC’s from this idea I like to daydream about:
Sorry to vent at you, but I'm rewatching this episode and I just got to the half elves argument and Vax just saying that Vex is obviously in love with Percy made me so uncomfortable. I'm dating a very cool human right now who I love very much, but due to circumstances I'm not comfortable telling anyone I'm related to that I'm dating them, because that would lead to a family queer religious shitshow. And then Vax just goes and outs Perc'ahlia without Vex's consent and I'm So Uncomfortable Why Vax
Yeah I noticed that too and I have a couple of thoughts
First off, Vax wears all of his emotions on his sleeve. Everything he told the girls in that room, there was nothing new, y’know? Vax is brutally open and honest and tends to expect the same thing from everyone else which becomes a point of issue in his argument with Scanlan but that’s another post so he doesn’t filter stuff, whether he’s talking about himself or other people
he’s also clearly got expectations about Percy and Vex’s relationship––his assumption she’d stay in Whitestone shows that. Vax has a sort of fairytale view of the world; you meet the person you love and you stay with them (or you don’t, but that means you didn’t love them, like his mother and Syldor). Which is why he’s honest with Gilmore, I think––because he does love Gil, but he’s also a complicated mess and at the end of the day wants to make sure Gilmore knows where he stands, much as that hurts. But he projects that same sort of brutal honesty onto Vex, who is far subtler and more methodical about her life choices, which puts them in conflict
and to get into the meta aspect, I think this is one of those cases where sitting at the table comes back to bite them, because like Marisha/Keyleth halfway alluded to, the split between what the players and the characters know is pretty wide and that gets glossed over sometimes? not to the point of metagaming, but to the point that they have to actively ignore what they know, which makes RP hard. (I also think, tbh, the fandom has something to do with this––perc’ahlia has been so prevalent for so long that it’s hard to remember they only got together like, a week ago in-game; there are expectations on them that don’t really line up with canon)
but Vax and Vex have been shifting away from each other for a while now, in terms of how they deal with the major issues of their lives and where they see themselves in the future, and I think that despite the similarity of their response to Scanlan’s exit, this is the sort of thing that’ll drive them further apart, and Vax’s attempt to air the secrets between them is part of that
Jessica and Mary were twins. Jessica’s actions put Mary in
Radley. Jessica had an affair with Peter Hastings. Melissa was born and Jason
was born AND GOD ONLY KNOWS HOW, but Charles was born too. I guess Pastor Ted
were having sex with his mental high school girlfriend or something. Mary
(WHILE BEING RADLEY PATIENT STILL!), pretend she was her sister and she seduced
Peter and she had twins. She sold one of her daughters AND THEN SHE GET OUT OF
RADLEY… Around this time Jessica and Kenneth send Charles to Radley, so at
least we know that Mary and Cece wasn’t in Radley at the same time. At least.
But I’m still curious why Jessica took Charles in a first place. But who cares
about Charles.. It was only big deal in like two or three seasons, season 7
have nothing to do with previous seasons, let’s make that clear.
Ok, so Charles become Charlotte or Cece or whatever and
transforming from boy to a girl haven’t really changed her twisted mind and she
was jealous of Alison or Spencer or.. who cares? But it’s fine, she take the
game from mona even when mona never had any real motive to start the game with,
but let’s forget about this. Wait, no. I won’t forget.
Mona always wanted to be friends with Alison and she was
obsessed with her. She even made herself a creepy room in Lost woods resort,
and then she helped Alison to run away. And then she was popular and best
friends with hannah, and then after a year Aria came back and she started
blackmailing them and only explanation we’ve got was that SPENCER, EMILY AND
ARIA TOOK HANNA AWAY FROM HER.. WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK?!
And then Cece took the game, and we should just ignore all
time gaps and wholes, and all unanswered questions we’d ever have about Cece
and how she used to kiss her own cousin.
But then she was blamed for Wildens death and she used
Alison passport to get away from the country. And as we know now, she did it
because Wren called her and told her that she has a sister. And then she met
Archer Dunhil on the plane and they fall madly in love. Sure.
And ok, I’m willing to believe it. All of it. Alex as Spencers
secret, evil twin, and Cece as transgender older sister. And I can believe that
Cece and Alex felt like that because they were having some rough time and were
jelaous. I’m willing to believe that all the clues were there only to hide the
biggest secret what was left till the very end.
I’m going to forget about Maya, Ian, Garrett and Wilden.
I’m not going to ask why they never explained what was Jenna
doing, I’m not going to ask about Lucas, Paige, Melissa and Jason anymore. NAT
club? Forget about this! It was never important. I won’t ask why Archer was
flirting with Alison and having an affair with her even when he was in love
with Charlotte. Alison wanted to get Cece out, so he never had to persuade her
to help her. I don’t care why you can’t turn your back on a Hastings, or what
happened to Tippi the bird. I won’t even bother to ask for how long Mary was
with Alex, was she with her while she was living in London? Or was it actually
Alex dressed up as a guy in a dollhouse? That’s why spencer felt like she knew
But tell me just one thing. Only one thing I need to know
HOW THE HELL ALEX BUILD THIS BUNKER UNDER ALREADY BUILT
I’d like to think that this show was special for me, and all
journey was just great.
But let me say this, that since season 4 it was just
different. It was tiring, because all we could get out of it is more questions.
And this whole Addison story was like a slap for me.
There were s omany ways to end this show. With Ezra,
Melissa, Lucas and Cece together, even with Jason. But it’s not only the finale
I’m pissed at. I’m pissed on whole last 3 seasons. It was like in season 4 all
the writers decided they don’t give a fuck anymore. They were like:
Oh shit, look what all the fans are doing on Tumblr, all
these theories and how they pick up the smallest things (WHICH WERE TOLD US TO
BE IMPORTANT! JUST HAVE A LOOK ON ALL MARLENE PLL TWEETS AND CLUES………….) and
making bad ass theories.
You know what, I’m just …
Thank you all theorists here and fans who made this pll
journey so great. You guys are the only reason that this show was special. Ok,
you and Troian.
In ur dojo taking screenshots like a creepy stalker.
The always awesome @operatordevavani and I met up to trade, and we ended up just hanging out chatting and doing goofy shit in their dojo. We eventually ran a few missions without either of our computers dying. Yay, success! We should do this again soon. :D I was tempted to invite @johauna-darkrider to our little shindig but they were in the Void the entire time.
I need to add more of my WF artist friends in game and/or steam so we can goof off some more. :3 But I’m actually a bit intimidated by them and their l33t skillz. Um, so yeah, if you want to add me, I’m xiaodenden in game.
Manufactured either in the US or in France/Belgium c.1869~1870′s - serial number 204. .32 cap and ball twin-shot cylinder, single action with spur trigger, brass knuckle folding handle, brass frame, blued cylinder. A very streamlined version of Louis Dolne’s more famous Apache pepperbox, without the useless folding blade and with a noticeably slimmer profile due to its reduced cylinder capacity. There’s no way to know if that gun was a copy or a production of Dolne himself, but the lack of name and the use of a caplock firing mechanism indicates it might have in fact been an American production.
An anonymous asker wanted me to comment on a certain analysis of Dipper and Mabel’s relationship, encountered elsewhere on the Internet, which interpreted their bond as a destructive and unhealthy one. Anon shared the original analysis with me in full, but was kind enough to provide me with a point-by-point summation of the poster’s arguments, each of which I will address herein.
A) Mabel may learn lessons, but she easily forgets them later on and doesn’t actually tangibly change as a person and doesn’t actually learn anything as her behaviour is still roughly the same.
Mabel’s a more static character than her brother, I grant you that. Dipper’s the protagonist, and as such the character whose growth is the series focus; he’s an avatar of creator Alex Hirsch himself, so there’s a lot of gentle self-deprecation in the way he’s written. But I tend to think that, in terms of story, it makes sense for Mabel to maintain a certain childishness, because that part of her comes to a head during the Weirdmageddon arc, when she has to choose between eternal childhood and the hard reality of growing older.
Dipper himself doesn’t change much during the series; he learns various smaller lessons to the effect of “just let things happen and don’t try to rush them,” but, until the finale, fails to fully imbibe the larger lesson about growing up. The events of Weirdmageddon give us Dipper at his best; he sheds the pervasive need to be seen as an adult that has characterized him from the beginning and in so doing appears at his most mature. He becomes a realist. He stops getting in his own way. At the same time, Mabel relinquishes her selfishness, the world which revolves around her, and her unwillingness to move forward, even granting Dipper the freedom to stay with Ford if he so chooses. They each grow in a far more definite way than they did over the course of the series proper, in which their character flaws were excellent plot fodder. (It’s also worth noting that in the show, as in real life, maturation is a process; we tend to revert to type, and it’s rare that one definitive “lesson” alters our tendencies. We have to learn again and again.)
The goal I set for myself today was to make 10 rooms, which brings the grand total up to 19 (out of a total of 25 that will be in the first level).
It’s been really fun doing level design for this game for a number of reasons.
Although a lot of the games I’ve made could be described as “zelda-likes” (in one way or another), I’ve actually made surprisingly few games that are grids of single-screen rooms, a la the original Legend of Zelda. The last one I can think of was Ninja the Explorer back in 2012.
It’s an interesting mode of level design. Each room needs a clear idea, clear goals and a simple challenge standing in the player’s way. One of the things that has been interesting about this game is taking that design philosophy which is mainly associated with retro 2D games, and applying it to 3D space.
