Regarding my story The Sand, Our Lives, and any other story I write, I just wanted to say that I am not going to go "oh I should avoid clichés, I should make strong characters, I should make them serve the plot, I should do this or follow this rule and bla bla bla" no.

I refuse to.

I am not writing for anyone's enjoyment. I am not writing something to get more attention. I am not writing so people can read a "refreshing" story with cool characters or concept or any of that.

I am writing to tell the story of my characters. Every character that I write, I first think of them as an individual. What happened in their life, why they are who they are, how they react to this or that. I am telling their story. I will write how they are. I am not writing according to what people want to read. I am writing the story of my characters.

I don't care about sob stories or someone created for the simple sake to be just be something that served to impact the main character's life. An example is Netihk. He was Ranik's lover that taught him many things and they genuinely loved each other. But he went to try save the village that they were living on and was probably caught in the fire or caught by the bandits in that fire. Ranik fled the scene and abandoned him and the village. To this day Ranik doesn't know if he's alive or not.

This was not written to go as something you should feel bad about or feel sad for Ranik. Netihk was a genuine individual who also found love in another person. But he had a good heart and fought for what he believed in, even if it seemed hopeless. So he ran to save the village while it burned and was being pillaged by bandits. Ranik wasn't the same. All his life, Ranik had to fight tooth and nail just to survive and that had become engraved into his brain. Survival and self-protection are his highest priorities. It doesn't make his love for Netihk any less real and good. But we aren't all heroes and we don't all fight for the safety of others. 

This is how I think of it. You write to tell the story of these people you create and care about, even if they embody many ugly aspects of humanity. There is more I could say but I'm tired and it's almost 3am. But this is just a note. I don't care that it's cliché and I don't care if anyone thinks I should change this character or the other to make them stronger and be more like the "modern symbols" like a strong character and shit. I will depict them exactly as they are, not what modern writing tells me I should write them as.

Awww thank you :heart: I didn't expect anyone to know until it was over or something xD My birthday going by unnoticed isn't very uncommon lol

Thank you for being so nice to me Q_Q If you're offering to give me something then I won't argue XD

Hmm well... how about... could you draw your favorite scene of chapter 2? I really liked the one you drew of Andro in chapter 1 and I'd love to see what you would come up for chapter 2 :meow:

Aww you're so awesome Q_Q The fact that I'm getting fanart is still not very set in my head xD I never expected that to happen honestly but I' very happy :)
