Now little Reynard, his parents were heros but shit hit the fan and they were killed in some terrible accident. Rey was left in their home alone when the goverment seized the house hoping to get something in the house. Rey ran into the lower levels of the city and has blocked out most of that night and anything before that. He re-invented himseld as Rey the Fox. I’d like for him to be a bit of a crime-boss, petty theft and a ring of low-powered criminals, but events will occur that force him to confront those memories of his past. He is a snobbish little brat but he’s loveable too. His story is a tale best played out in a long game. I hope. I’d like for folks to affect his story.
“there is an old lycanthrope legend that got it all right. The story goes that the universe is run by two simple things,
a prime mover and a coyote.
This coyote is a wily dog born
from ancient trickster bones,
Loki, Hermes, the northwestern Raven of lore, all glimmer in his aluminum eyes.
the prime mover makes
the world simply by
dreaming of its own dreaming
spanning all, shaping all,
the coyote mostly sleeps,
his chin to the ground, one ear perked up, his body resting in the shade of the prime mover’s infinity. Coyote awakens at something like the smell of bacon and trots across the kingdom of heaven hopping down into the world,
sniffing for mischief.
And as the prime mover contemplates
the contemplation that therefore spawns existence, and time passes without passing,
the coyote sprightly follows the dusty trail back home, where he dances around the prime mover eagerly barking and yipping and telling tales of coincidence wrought, good luck won, bad luck earned, loose ends that were somehow connected, all thanks to this little mischief mutt: the longed-for lover shows up at the bus stop, the ex-roommate appears with the missing keys, the thought of a distant friend sails across the mind just as she strolls by the cafe window.”—Toby Barlow, Sharp Teeth (via bandofbrothels)
This is just a little thing to help me remember various zodiac-related things.
Sun: Capricorn (conscious self)
Moon : Capricorn (emotional instinctual-self)
Ascendent: Gemini (how people see you)
Midheaven: Pisces (career and your life goal)
Sun Sign Capricorn: Goal-oriented, money-oriented. I dream big but live in the real-world. If I want it, I will go and get it for myself. I am very straight to the point and don’t play mind games. Procrastinate not for laziness but for perfection. I want control. I want recognition. I want to be useful. Often good at planning for the future. Leaving things to chance is a nightmare. Surprisingly, very good at being witty and making people laugh. Does not trust very well. Bitter about past wrongs whether imagined or real.
Moon Sign Capricorn: Double all of the stuff in my Sun Sign together to amplify the good and not-so good things.
Then, you have the Ascendent of Gemini: Curious, learner. Questions everything. Often become too tangled in their own puzzles and forget about others. Seems to have two sides: talkitive-friendly and calm-not-quite-interested-in-things. Charming. Say what they thing people want to hear. Admires and tries to emulate those they admire. Multi-tasker. Thrive in chaos.
And finally Midheaven Pisces : Influenced by others and psychic energies such as natural intuition. This gives them spiritual perception, inspiration, and compassion for others. They do not have an easy time deciding what they want to be when they grow up. They know what they want to achieve, but they lack practicality. They are idealistic. Will fail so many times that they hit the bottom in financial, emotional or spiritual drainage. Once they hit rock bottom, their path may become suddenly clear to them. It isn’t so much making something happen that makes them succeed, but that they allow their inner person to come forth.
I’m a serious, reserved, bubbly, curious, quirky, intuitive, often-failing, creative person. I’m complicated doesn’t even begin to cover it. All taken from various sources to help me remember my good points and my need-work-areas. So I pay attention to my zodiac-sign… what of it? I follow it if just for reassurance that I’m in control (sort-of) and that everything is normal.
I will ask your color ask question-thingie! Red and green. :)
-red:is it hard for you to think up new ideas? list three of your biggest influences.
New ideas are easy for me. I mean, you could ask my friends back in Illinois about this and they will most likely say that I’m pretty good at coming up with new ideas. Insane, crazy, big ideas too. Now the real question is: Do I ever get around to working on and finishing those ideas? Rarely.
Three of my biggest influences for ideas are: Ray Bradbury/Ray Harryhausen, Jim Henson/Brian Froud, and anything I find in National Geographic magazine. That’s technically 5 but I can’t leave any of these guys out as a team. Bradbury/Harryhausen for how I write and visualize. Henson/Froud for how to bring things to life and create whole worlds. Nat. Geo for putting a touch of reality into everything else.
-green: how do you flesh out an idea? does it take a long time, do you mull over it for hours, or does it come easily? describe the process!
As I said, I get these crazy, big, and impossible ideas.It takes me a little bit to get the initial idea down and sort-of figured out. I then take another look at it and realize nothing about this work at all and scrap it. I get mad for a few hours and work on something else until I start thinking about the first idea again. I go back to the first idea and work on it again. I like to leave things alone for a while and mull things over for a day or two until I get a stroke of inspiration.
Ideas never start out as ONE DEFINITE thing for me. I add onto things during the process and eventually it becomes something better than the original and more complicated.
i originally thought up these questions for writers, but then i realized that they can really apply to anything - artists, composers, whatever. idk about you guys but i love to talk about my process so yeah

4-D Theaters? Complete with moving chairs, “back ticklers” to stimulate explosions, strobe lights, and tiny nozzles able to spray water, mist, smoke, bubbles, and up to 1,000 scents; there are hopes of furnishing 200 U.S. theaters with this equipment. Does this seem…
Anyone else kinda freaked out by this? All I can think of are the ‘feelies’ in Aldous Huxley’s ‘Brave New World’. I don’t think I want this.
“Try making a list of the most important characters in your book — anywhere from one to five main characters. And then for each character, list the defining choices that he or she makes in your book. Then try to create an outline of your novel in which those choices are front and center, along with the events that inspire those choices or come out of them. This won’t work for every type of novel, but it’s one way to see if your baroque storytelling has gotten away from your main story.”—Writing News, Videos, Reviews and Gossip - io9 (via clitorisesandsnorlaxes)
