    @mamaauthoress

    Hello hello! It’s awesome to see you around again!

    @everyone

    I kinda want to drop in a character as well! Frey my boi has been talking to me for months now and he’s more than ready to get out into the world.

  • @this-is-not-an-alien

    BRILLIANT FABULOUS FANTASTIC I copied the entire thing into a writing file for future reference for Ophelia XD Thank you so much for that!

    It’s also fun to me how the neurosparkles have quite a bit of overlap.

    Like the rejection sensitivity, “Everyone in this store hates me” phenomenon, masking, and this bit!

    Oh and the…

    @emma-walker

    Hey Emma, I tried to get a message to you a few months ago, but you must have missed it. Sorry it took so long, you must have been worried about Erynne.

    Erynne hasn’t replied because she’s having some trouble at home and isn’t allowed to contact her internet friends, even though she really misses them.

    It sounds like a pretty tough…[Read more]

  • @sydney

    Aydin is my favorite XD Oh no!!! That is seriously sad, but I think it’s interesting the way you portray their two different reactions to it. I think I would probably be reacting like  Liorah – in terms of just plain panicking. *sigh* Poor girl!!  So if you had to choose, which one is the worse case?

    Hmm… I don’t think I can categ…[Read more]

    Ummm girl you NEED TO!! XD (If you join, my username is @queen_of_alvastia and by nickname is Queenie )

    Epic, I’m working on it! I sent in the request, now I’m just waiting for them to get around to it!

    There’s actually several PTSD charries in the castle I’m in XD By the way, have you ever noticed, it’s like authors are roughest on the c…

  • @miller

    Of course, I’m happy I could help! And yeah, injuring characters is tough XD

    @scoutfinch190

    As for your first questions, that’s quite beyond me XD But I can answer the latter!

    Does anyone also know if there could be a pain-killer strong enough to ease physical wounds in pill-form?

    Yes! Painkillers that work on the central nervous…[Read more]

  • @miller

    Okay I can kinda answer a few of these! I have no medical experience in this, but I do have some personal experience with both, besides some historical research for the same kinds of questions in my WIP!

    So I have a character who fell maybe a couple feet of the ground and then got hit in the head by the pulley system she built and I…

    @calidris

    I did?

    Ok it sounds vaguely familiar but I’d forgotten all about that XD

    Yes honey you absolutely did and it was honestly such brilliant advice that it stuck with me XD

    @lady-grace

    Wait.. that ain’t normal?

    @e-n-leonard

    *Oops got super sidetracked and forgot to reply*

    Thanks so much for your answers! I do like to categorize things, but I was a bit concerned about not wanting a label to wind up defining a character. Which isn’t really an actual issue for me because my characters are themselves and categorizing them other ways doesn’t change that. So…

  • @sydney

    So it’s a Character Castle in Kingdom Pen? Are you on there? I’m not on any of the Character Castles on here b/c some of the topics – well, I have different views on some of the stuff.

    Oh cool! I’m not, but I’ve been planning to join for… *awkward silence* several years now XD

    Oh, I totally get that, every character castle I’ve been i…[Read more]

  • @mamaauthoress

    Hi Laura! Of course I remember you and Rúan! I’ve been wondering if you’re okay, it’s so nice to hear from you!

    Absolutely don’t worry about it, most people on here have hit the same issue (me included) I had to pull out of all the castles because of school 😅 Anyway, it’s totally okay, it’s lovely to hear from you again!

    @e-n-leonard

    Whelp, that’d be me. Does this character castle emanate those ND vibes Cathy was talking about?

    Honestly, it does ngl XD I think the internet, in general, is WAY easier to work with for ND folks. Several reasons: I can infodump uninterrupted and if someone is bored with it they can just skim and no harm done. I can use and overuse t…[Read more]

  • @sydney

    How was your vacation?

    It was good, thank you! I had a lot of fun!

    It’s been *cough cough* interesting. And by that I mean, Sorren and Payton got in a fight. Sorren almost chokes Payton. Sorren later threatens another charrie who has PTSD; the guy’s brother comes after Sorren and knocks him out. And then there the whole “Who wants to ju…

    @arindown

    Okay here comes the actual infodump XD

    Let me count my villains… I’m skipping the regular antagonists who are just doing their job and get in the way XD (Also gonna leave out one or two minor villains because they’re major spoilers XD)

    Okay, here’s the big three!

    Hey Arindown! It’s awesome to see you around again! How have you been? How is writing? Characters behaving? What are you writing currently?

    Ooohhh YES permission to infodump!! I love nothing more!

    First of all @calidris it was so cool seeing Sebastian’s character all put together! I still love him, even though he’s horrid and evil…[Read more]

  • @sydney

    Nope….especially because I just decided to throw his mortal enemy, Sorren(Okay fine, his “Antagonist”) into the mix.

    Oh that’s a delight you sure are challenging him XD Trapping the villains and heroes together is always highly entertaining though somewhat murdery XD We used to have a castle for all the villains together and let me tell yo…[Read more]

    @sydney

    Hey Sydney, just a real quick message to say I might be a while replying! We’re currently on holiday so I’m trying to manage SE on mobile but I can’t write a lot this way 😂

    Anyway, I didn’t forget I’ll get back to you ASAP! ☺️

  • @sydney

    XD I love it!! XD Payton’s in a character castle at the moment, and I’m am proud that he has managed to keep his more obnoxious side under – relative – control…. for the moment, anyway….he did just get there…. But it’s probably because he made friends with the other character so he’s good!

    Ohhh, very impressive of him! (Don’t count on i…[Read more]

  • @sydney

    XD I know right!?! Try telling someone who’s not a writer that you can’t control you’re characters and they look at you like you’ve lost your mind…

    Well, maybe they’re right….

    Well, they’re definitely not wrong XD

    Hope you make it out alive!! See you later!! *winks at characters* Oh man, PAyton deserves (almost) everything I throw at him.…
