so what do YOUR characters think about on the verge of death *smiles brightly* ?
IT DEPENDS ON
WHATS GOING ON LMFAO if it’s like. A situation where he’s fighting?? Then I think he’d be thinking about like…All the things he has to do and take care of. He’s not very much a people-person in that he’s good with them, but he really appreciates people, and he does want to help and protect people. He’d think about his momma and just like. Things that he had to do, as more of a motivation thing?? He’s got to do this and that so he can’t fuck up now!!!
But if it’s like. He fell and he’s laying at the bottom of some hill beat and busied and can’t do nothing without some help and he’s going to die there he’d be much more likely to just think about all the things he DIDNT do and all the mistakes he’s made. If he’s left to his own and it’s not really a battle against someone or something he’d probably be more likely to give up sooner bc idk it would have been ‘his fault’ sort of thing you done fucked up and he’s not fighting FOR something?? ???? Like if that makes sense??? lmfao. He’d panic more left by himself by a lot
Felix I don’t think it would be different depending on the situation. I think he’d be worried about the people that like…depend on him?? Like that he’d be letting someone down by dying or getting killed.
Jin if it was against someone in a fight or something to that nature, it’d probably be really angry and like. No I’m not going to fucking go down like this there are so many things i haven’t had a chance to do or see yet ur gunna regret this, buddy.
If it’s the other, then i think it’d be the opposite and all the thing’s she’s been lucky enough to do, and people she’s met, and the family in her life and things like that?? A lot more optimistic than w/ bounty. She’s been able to travel all over everywhere and it’d be nice to reflect on that.
what preexisting works influenced your character creations? what are your characters based on, whether they’re personal experience/interests or if they were inspired by existing media?
It’s really no big surprise that Bounty is based a lot off of Ginko from Mushishi, both with some effort and subconsciously. The most obvious thing he’s based off of is a dream I had ((after marathoning Mushishi the first time golly gee)) But I guess a lot of the dream is just his design… lmfao and this sounds dumb spelled out but I guess there was always sort of an idea of like. BECAUSE in rpgs and stuff you normally have the good or bad option to pick from and i guess more recently there have been more middle-ground options and just. I guess??? Going along with walking that line where ur reputation is like 0. It’s not bad or good because you do things on both side of the line and it just sort of evens out??? ???
Jin started out as basically a love-interest for an old old rp but that didn’t last long because rping love is weird and hard. A lot of her came from I guess Esmerelda and I guess Thieves-Guild Oblivion stuff ((to be fair, a lot of the rp came from thieves guild oblivion stuff looking back on it. )) I ended up looking into Roma-travelers a lot, and travelers in general like hitch hikers and just people that can travel and move without being tied down to a home or anything like that?? Because the idea of that fascinates me to no end, and while the whole story of Bounty sort of revolves around that a little, I think Jin emphasizes it most?? idk
Felix is based off a dog. No dog in particular. Just sort of the idea of a dog.
And I guess?? I mean the whole world itself is. IDK I can name like. a handful of things that I know inspired it a lot. Like Earthsea, Journey, Oblivion/Skyrim. Renaissance stuff in general esp the faires and stuff I’ve gone to. Tales of Symphonia
Vacation in Rhode Island where we’d just drive around until we found somewhere neat looking, and we’d explore that area some. One time we found Fort Wetherill and just explored inside ((unfort we didn’t have flashlights w/ us so we couldn’t go TOO far inside)) and then we spent all day climbing the cliffs around it.
And I can think of like. Two times when I was little that idk the FEELING??? inspired the story??? When I lived in my first house it was this trailer park and at the end of our road there was a wooden fence. Like
this kind. And behind it was just like really tall grass that I couldn’t see over, and we weren’t allowed to go past the fence but like I REALLY wanted too always, and to see what was there and what was past it and everything like that!!! A couple times I tried but I never got really far bc my brother tried to keep me out of trouble but just the IDEA of this whole world past there was really cool and the idea of just being able to GO
And then the other time is like. At a friends’ house she lived be a golf course?? All we had to do was jump a fence and one time we did and walked for hours it seemed like and she knew where she was going or at least said she did. And we found this like really tall light-house-but-not sort of building and a trampoline and?? idk it was really cool
and I guess there’s these little small woods that are by my house that I used to explore in, or just. when I ride my bike anywhere I just sort of go and I dont know where I’m going or anything and it’s just the idea of being able to do that and being that free.
Just like the whole idea of exploring and adventuring and just being able to GO is the idea of everything I guess. Because Bounty and them travel a lot, and they deal w/ all these people and other things sure, but??? LIKE they’re the ones traveling and moving about always and that gives them this chance to meet hte people and do these things. If they were tied down then they would have never been able to!!
And like Bounty hates being tied down and having to settle down and stuff like that idk
I D K
what kind of things annoy bounty, felix and jin
Bounty gets irritated kind of easily because he’s a huge baby. He doesn’t really like kids, esp when they’re rambunctious and don’t listen. Well to be fair that reigns true for anyone. Like, he likes people, he does, but for a vast majority of people he doesn’t really want to hang out with you he’d rather people watch or something.
Things he can’t control or do really get to him. Like, obstacles that he can’t overcome by himself sort of things, or things just beyond his control that he can’t really do anything about. Mostly in the forms of like weather and nature. Sure, nature has its own thing going and he can accept and appreciate that, but like was a thunderstorm really necessary now it’s cold and he’s soaked and there isn’t a town for a while. Great now the road is muddy too. Thanks nature. That’s real great.
Like he loves traveling, but man some times….
Also new-bound books where it takes a while to stretch it out so that the words dont start to run into the middle of the page where it’s hard to read.
When people have food and are eating it like infront of you/in your company, but dont offer you any. C’mon dude.
Felix he like. People that are really idle or like indecisive and fuck whats the word it starts with like an A….. But like. In active people who are like ‘yeah i guess’ ‘well maybe’ and that sure makes him and Bounty REAL GOOD FRIENDS But just. You should have an opinion!! Like sure it’s one thing if it’s like ‘which tea do you want’ ‘oh well either is fine, whatever you’re making’ sort of thing that’s still kind of annoying but esp when it comes to BIG things or at least like. Medium things.
And like lazy people too. Like he’s had to work pretty hard, and even if you dont have to work hard for a lively-hood then like you should still like. DO something.
Spring when it’s getting warm out but the water in the rivers are still like really cold and not just like cool where it keeps you cool from the heat but its just not the right temperature for any of this.
Jin’s annoyed the least about people out of everyone, but people that don’t take care of themselves. But the most of hers are like more…like splinters and peeling paint and certain smells or when fabric tears in a way that makes it hard to mend or impossible to mend. She tries to use everything until it can’t be used any more, so when things that are still good get put to waste it really bugs her. Wasting food, or things going bad before she was able to use them((food, plants, medicine, etc)).
Really loud birds in the mornings.
your character must explain sex to a younger sibling/child/inquisitive random little bastard under the age of 13
HOW DO THEY REACT
ARE THEY ABLE TO DO IT
Bounty isn’t good with children so he wouldn’t really be the best person to go about asking. He’d rather shove off to someone else to explain, but if he HAD to he could. He’d just be like. Factual about it I guess and not really tactful.
Felix could probably explain it, but he’d be embarrassed and it’d be a very dumbed down version. ” WELL UH. Um. They…well. Some…Er well some people…” He could probably get it out after a while but I don’t think the kid’ll come out of it with any more knowledge. Where Bounty lacks some tact, Felix has a lot of it to the point where he’d just. Not be helpful. It’s also not an area he has a lot of experience with so it’s just.
Jin would be able to explain it best of them because it’s just a natural thing and there’s no real problem with talking about it bc they’re going to find out one way or another, better to know what you’re doing later on etc. She’s generally better w/ kids and talking to people than the other two so it wouldn’t be too terrible.
BS straight up would not. He’d get too embarrassed and flustered and why do they need to know that whY ARE YOU ASKING ME CAN’T YOU ASK YOUR PARENTS WHY ARE YOU HERE and just. Change the subject. He couldn’t do it.
FB could but he’s not going to sit down and talk to a 13 year old get lost you little shit.
ST would just give the general ‘when two people love each other sometimes they diddle’ shit and be like. uncomfortable but not really embarrassed.
How does your character feel about Christmas/Winter/Winter Holiday ????
Bounty doesn’t like the winter because traveling in the cold sucks. So during the winter he normally finds a nice town to settle down in for a couple months if he can and stays inside and warm. There are a lot of celebrations and festivals depending on where he stops, and he likes people watching and everything, but he’s content with just staying inside and being warm and having hot cider.
Felix really likes the winter but less so now because the winter holidays were a big family thing and obv he’s not with his family any more but he still likes watching festivals and the snow and like snowball fights and stuff, much to Bounty’s dismay
Jin doesn’t like it as much because she’s traveling and if it snows too much the caravan can’t move too well and its harder to keep her Bison healthy and warm so she has to find somewhere to camp at for a while and where she can stable her animals but unlike Bounty she hates staying in one place a lot more so she gets bored and itching to move on. Festivals are nice but normally she doesn’t have anyone to celebrate with so its like why. She’s a very social person and so it’s just awk.
BS doesn’t like winter it’s cold and awful and he’s a hopeless lonely man he just wants to stay inside and drink warm drinks and not leave ever
FB doesn’t like it it’s cold and it’s not like he’s a happy person to begin with
ST likes winter despite it being cold because there are decorations and he likes Midwinter and he makes FB enjoy it a tiny lil bit
mar* and felix* and jinkoura*
Despite being a fisherman and sailor, Pisces make him uncomfortable. Mostly because he associates them with sirens and doesn’t want to go down that road at all he’s got a hubby and doesn’t want to end up shipwrecked or sunk.
Felix is pretty quick and agile but doesn’t have good flexibility. He can’t touch his toes.
She keeps a dagger/knife on her most times and knows how to use it pretty well, but mostly focus’ on defending and disarming rather than actually causing injury. Like she doesn’t want to kill anyone but she physically could if the need arose.
