    Default Daydreams of an Angel and a Fish

    The Fan Works forum has seen an explosion of activity lately, hasn't it? People you see all over the place suddenly show you their impressive talents they've been training for years, which you didn't even know they had. Or, people inspired by more skilled artists start training their skills, and show their fellow posters their progress.

    It seems like all the cool posters have started writing stories. It makes sense. When you create a character in a Phantasy Star game, you're given so much freedom of creation, and spend so much time with your character, that you can't help but start to think up why s/he's there. Well, simply put, I'm feeling jealous of everyone's skills, and want to try out writing for myself. I've been building Levia for ten years, and Zorael for twenty. It's about time I put down their stories into words. Both for myself (to finally formalize their personalities), and for my fellow posters (who want to know more about my characters).

    I'm going to be doing things a bit differently. My story doesn't have a smooth beginning, middle, and end. No major conflicts to be averted, no major character flaws to overcome. My story, instead, will tell of major events in the lives of my characters, or will summarize a stage of life with a single event. Because of this (and my complete lack of training as a writer and story teller), my stories probably won't be all that interesting. At the very least, they won't be very suspenseful, and won't leave you wondering what will happen next, or how our heroes will get out of this hairy situation.

    I actually don't know how far I'll get. I'd like to go over the major points until I reach the beginning of PSO2. But I've been known to drop projects part way through. Hopefully I'll be able to get through all the major points.

    Another note, my story will be taking place in the world of christian mythology (theology? I'm not quite sure). I can see this offending both christians and atheists alike. So I want to be clear. My universe will be based on a dramatization of the bible. That is, I'm not going to say "this is right" and "this is wrong" by christian decree, but rather "this happened at this one time" and "these things totally exist". So hopefully my story will be as much christian propaganda as Wonder Woman is Greek propaganda.

    Twas pretty good. Was also funny to imagine the Zoras speaking in a biblical manner. Opens up for an interesting story.

    The dialogue is considerably thoughtful, as though you chose each word carefully. So far I'm very intrigued. I don't mind if there are no major conflicts, I'd be content in just exploring this world.

    An angel willing to leave the presence of their god because of their curiosity about the universe. Yep I'm intrigued I liked the dialogue, having an all powerful being speaking as a regular guy just wouldn't work lol.

    I can't help but feel Zorael is getting in over his head, I like the way this is turning out.
