Let's try this again...(AMCA)
« on: April 27, 2017, 12:48:10 PM »
So yeah, I kinda messed up my last one, so I'm going to try this again.

Usual things apply, ask my characters/me anything and I'll respond in kind.

You have quite a few characters so I was wondering if you think they would all get along as friends? Or are there some that would be annoyed by the others personality/hobbies etc.

Tina and Lunae would click, no problem. Guns and bullets are magnets for Lunae, so that's one pair done. Kei should be able to gradually warm up to Setsuna, provided the latter doesn't trigger any flashbacks. I feel like the person who would be left out, sadly, is Tieren, who wouldn't be able to really socialise with anyone well due to his temper. Maybe Setsuna would like to take his weapon apart and learn from it, I suppose?

Overall all but Tieren would be able to get along pretty well, I reckon. Tieren would have to find some Vacuans I suppose. (feelsbadman)

So far all your characters are Beacon students (which seem to be the most common for obvious reasons), but if you were to make a character at a different school which one are you most interested in?

It's a split between Mistral and Vacuo (Haven and Shade). Mistral because with the conclusion of season 4, we might get more insight into the culture of Mistralians, plus having threads happen in that massive mountain city would be awesome, while Vacuo because a sandy desert enviroment with rural bazaars, oasises and a scorching sun just pops into my mind, and it would make a big contrast to Beacon's civilised environment. I'm not choosing Atlas because an army-based regime for a school seems boring, plus snow-covered fields doesn't leave much to the imagination.

I do try and mix stuff up, having characters transfer or originate from different continents, but have yet to get one in a different academy. Maybe if there was enough support for a team from Vacuo/Mistral maybe.

What about their weaponry? Any of your OCs that have a weapon you're particularly pleased with? Any type of weapon that you havent used but want to at some point?

All my OC's weapons are loosely based off some other weapon, be it cartoon or real, but I have to say Kei's lance-rapier hybrid stands out among them. May not be able to transform into a gun, but I'm still happy with the concept and design.  Lunae was originally outfitted with miniguns, but was denied for obvious reasons. Still want to use that one day.

You mentioned before that Setsuna wasn't named because of it's similarities between that name and his semblance. Do you have another process to name your characters and what do your characters think of their names in universe?
No criticism to harsh so hit me with your best shot.

The only thing I try to avoid is having multiple characters with the same starting letter of their first and last name (because of team names). Unfortunately Tieren got moved before I could rectify that mistake. Otherwise, I generally go with whatever rolls off my tongue.

As for your second question:

"Surely it had to be a coincidence that my Semblance turned out to be a speed one, right? Either that or my parents are psychics. It's a good name, though!"

"Being from a Mistralian family with long, lengthy traditions meant I was given a similar one to my ancestors. To be honest, I don't really mind. I get the odd look every now and then when I mention my full name, but it does make me stand out in a different way."

At this point in their mission, what does Tina think of Aurora? Of Gwylan? Of Nero? Of those three, who does she like and dislike the most so far?

All three have proven to be capable fighters, though Nero stands out for saving her from a potential injury. Aurora seems to be a natural leader (Albeit a bit racist) and Tina respects that role of command. Gwylan, being the only boy in the group, is a completely different matter, and she doesn't really know what to make of his flirtatious comments toward Aurora, mostly passing them off as unimportant comments. She feels the most trusting toward Nero since the aforementioned helped her get over her initial moment of panic, plus the life-saving moment, resulting in Nero being her most liked person in the group so far. As for dislike, well...

She doesn't "dislike" them, but feels more negative toward Aurora because of the incident on the Bullhead. Sorry Mythic.
