I can speak from experience when I say that your concept for Clarion’s motivation can 100 percent work. You just have to, ya know, execute it well.
And I will be the best devoted over-the-top fan of this as I can. Maybe I should start learning to cry on command… from laughter. Hmmmmm…
And I’ll try to keep tabs on all docs. So, uh… if y’all could keep me in the loop on the docs and discord and stuff… that’d be nice. XD
Oh, and, uh, once y’all start really pushing out this great work, I can write fan-fiction about a personal character maybe meeting y’alls darling angels. Maybe. But first, the passage of Time.

Am I blinking in shock?
Blinking back tears?
Blinking because I don’t know what to say?
Wait, “David” are you our first fan??? *faints*

Sarah/Slisby will have to invite you to the google hangout. Many tears have been shed there.

@the-fledgling-artist A BIG YES TO THE EVIL KING BEING A FOIL CHARACTER FOR THE SQUAD. That’s just genius and probably makes the villain a whole lot more interesting!
@h-jones YAY! King Jorah and queen Evolet is shall be! I kinda like Evolet a bit more too. It has a similliar feel to Gisette so that fits perfectly!
I do like to think the villain will have a reason to be doing what he’s doing. It doesn’t have to be a good reason, he can just be a big meanie, but I feel like he needs motivation ya know. He could just be hungry for power, maybe he has a reason to want the kingdom of Ancore in particular?
BUT GUYS MAAAYBEEEE he is raiding and conquering all these kingdoms because of some kind of ore that is found in the earth that ACTUALLY POWERS THE TECHNOLOGY HE USES. And the more of these glowy rocks he has, the more technology he can make and the more powerfull it will be. Like a fantasy kind of electricity. What if he harvests them by using his weather machine which destroys most of the island he visits. This way the farming land would be completely ruined making people once again depend on his technology. Like he’s building his own kingdom.
ALSO what if he actually did lose a loved one because of the height of the islands AND THAT’S WHY HE MADE HIS MECHANICAL WINGS. This would mirror with Gisette who almost lost het mother, is afraid of heights because of this and now desperately wants more technology in her country so that they’ll be safer.

@theclumsy_lamplighter @i-david Yup! Just hop on the doc and write your email on either first two of the comments and I can add you to the hangouts! We’re trying to keep the doc organized, so most of our ramblings and excited yelling + tears are there, aside from this thread ^-^

@the-fledgling-artist Ahh yes I love it! She can totally do all that xD I think it’d also make sense if she happened to be with Gisette at the time, otherwise they might’ve just ignored it (depending how bad it is?) or sent for a more skilled healer. But nope, she was there, saw an adorable cranky red panda who was injured, rolled up her sleeves and goes “I got this.” or something. But either way, I heartily approve!!
@h-jones Yeah hmm, I did consider that a lot… and maybe deep down she does still feel that way? But for this comic, it’s kinda my preference that Clarion should definitely have a flat-arc in this story since she did most of her growing up and had her arc when she was younger, and struggling to make ends meet. Kinda as if she could almost have her own mini-prequel to this comic XD But yeah I feel like if she had a more defined arc, that would kinda take away the stability of the group a bit?? I don’t think that’s particularly a good move since we really want to focus on Kester, Basil’s and even Gisette’s arcs. It might get too busy otherwise, you know? I dunno 😀 I am totally open to ideas, I just don’t really want her sad backstory to become a ‘big’ thing in the story. It can be mentioned briefly but it’s still clear that she found her own way through her grief already (by caring for others) 😀
*gasp* Maybe she could offhandedly (but happily) comment that “it’s nice to be part of a family again” and one of them just heard her and just go ‘ D: ‘ … but that’s probably as far as it would go, cos she’d say it happily and instantly change the subject xD
Sorry if that was a bit contradictive! I just don’t want the story to dwell on her sob-backstory and I guess, in a way, have her character show that it is totally possible for people to heal, move on and be happy again…? Is that kinda cheesy??

Noo, Sarah, I actually really like that. I think it makes the story feel more, realistic in a way? Like she might have struggles like that, but they’re not totally destroying her as a person, so while they might come up in conversation, it doesn’t have to be this big dramatic arc thing.
I think especially because there isn’t really a good answer to a problem like that. (?) Like, even if it’s emotionally exhausting to be helping everyone around you and constantly being the ‘mom friend’, you kind of just accept that and keep helping people no matter how much it stresses you out. (Right??) *pulls out soapbox* ’cause even Jesus got exhausted from helping people, and he never stopped like, “Oh, I should stop helping people so much so I can be in a better emotional state” *crawls off soapbox*

No really, I just though I should say something about how much I’ve been enjoying this thread.
I just joined Story Embers near the beginning of this month and started actually reading stuff around when this thread started. I’ve been reading it ever since.
I was interested in the idea when it started but
I can’t drawI didn’t say anything. I can’t really do art, but you are all so good at it it’s just amazing!
So yeah, you can count me as fan 2 😉

@trallion Hi there! Aaaaahhh! I’m so glad you like it! :’)
If you ever have any suggestions for the comic feel free to share them with us! It’s so nice that there already are people that like where this is going. 🙂
