I was bored and I'm procrastinating on writing my novel, and I wanted to do something for BTFF, so I wrote a dialogue guide. In it, I'll be walking through how to make your dialogue interesting and engaging. But first off...
It's interesting. Duh. But why is it interesting?
- It adds realism. Not everyone talks like a robot. Having the characters talk like real people makes it more believable.
- It adds clarity. It may seem like simple speech would be easier to understand than messy human speech, but characters that don't sound like textbooks make the reader more willing to process what's being said, making the plot more clear.
- It adds emotional torque. The secret to good storytelling is to make people feel something, and what better way to do that…

So, I know this probably isn't a good thing, but I still don't know what is going to happen in BTEF season 1 past Episode 13, and even then it's iffy. So, in order to help me plan, I want to know what you guys want. So I'm taking polls.
If you have any suggestions for what should happen, or have a problem with anything I've done so far, please let me know so I can improve future episodes.
Also, what Charged Forms do you want to see?Read More >
Some of you may have noticed that there is a new rule at the bottom of Community Guidelines. What it's trying to say is basically "don't be a jerk to other users", but right now it's not very clear because I spat it out in a few seconds while trying to stop some behavior on chat that was obviously unacceptable. People have been saying that being mean to each other for the sake of meanness and calling each other names and stuff is fine because there isn't a rule about it, though honestly not doing so should be a matter of common courtesy. But now there is a rule, so there.
My hope is that this new policy will deter all the unnecessary and pointless drama that has been running rampent all over the wiki (to quote Lumin8, turning this into the …Read More >
Alright, sorry I haven't been on much, last weekend was the opening night of my school play and I was busy as all heck. DX I probably will continue to be inactive until this Thursday (I only have 5 days of academic classes this month so my teachers are loading me up with homework blaaaaah), but then I'll be on a ton again. :3
Now anyway, the point. This year I'm participating in Script Frenzy, a challenge to write 100 pages of script in the month of April. And I fully intend to win this year~ (Helps that I have my own computer now so I don't have to wake up at 5 in the morning and squeeze all of my writing from then until six.) Here I'm going to keep track of my progress, maybe post some quotes.
I'm writing three episodes of BTEF for this Sc…

So, when playing around with this new Sculptris program, I end up making a lot of heads/busts/bodies of aliens that I have no use for. So, I'm putting them up for adoption! You want one, just claim it and you can do what you will with it. Use it for an alien, a hero, a villain, whatever. First come first serve. I won't be taking requests, but if you want a screenshot of the alien from another view, I can do that for you.Read More >
