Cho could remember the cold. She was dressed in only her nightgown and was barefooted. The cold of the stone bricks burned into her skin. In any other circumstances, she would have vigorously protested, but the looks on the faces of her guards kept her silent. She was distantly aware of stumbling several times and the grazes running down her legs and arms, but the panic of the situation kept her silent. Although nobody had said anything to the young girl, Cho was aware that this was no training drill.

FFSKYE.
That drawing is beautiful! Great job! ;w;

I the plants and her hair, and the pattern of the dress is super pretty, too. ;w;

Heartless - July 10, 2011 02:36 PM (GMT)
so is that gonna be her layout pic O:

skyekittie - July 11, 2011 01:28 AM (GMT)
Thanks, Dorothy! <3

This is going to be her layout picture, but I have a nicer one where I actually finished the background, rather than just adding a few plants and transparency orz;;;

skyekittie - July 14, 2011 06:10 AM (GMT)
Double post, sorry. ;;;;;

I haven't had much time to work on my app because of homework. D:
I made up a (quick) ref though~

I've also finished one chapter of her story and I estimate I only have four chapters to go. C: then all the content will be done and I only have to draw (but that is the part I'm worst with orz;;; )
I might do adoptables next and try and do a few trades before the deadline.

Heartless - July 18, 2011 01:18 AM (GMT)
O NO NOT A DOUBLE POST

i think you should try maybe to do an original image for her ref? reusing the app image seems kind of lazy tbh ffff

i wanna read her story! make sure you link her page when you finish o3o

and i'm gonna try to make an adopt set too so we can do trades |D

skyekittie - July 18, 2011 05:55 AM (GMT)
REBEL ppffff

I was thinking that actually. xD a different image will help show her different clothing choices as well. C:

I'm such a bad writer;;; orz, I'm worried about how it will turn out!

And yes! 8D A trade sounds awesome!

How much more content do you have, Hearty?

icecakes - July 18, 2011 06:53 AM (GMT)
;A;
I DID NOT KNOW ABOUT THIS AT ALL! WRY ARE WE NEVER ONLINE AT THE SAME TIME ANYMORE?!?!?!
She looks so pretty! and just sdkfubdsfsdf

/useless post

Heartless - July 18, 2011 04:00 PM (GMT)
it's secretly one of my pet peeves when people reuse layout images for ref shots... or ref shots for layout images ffff

i have like... two unorganized pages in word right now orz i really need to get on stuff, i've mostly been scribbling down plans
/DISORGANIZED

QUICK, CAPTURE AND TAG IT SO IT CAN'T ESCAPE

skyekittie - July 22, 2011 08:10 AM (GMT)
Thanks Icy! ;A;
Come on more often~~~

Hearty, (I swear, I just wrote 'Meaty' o__o;; )
I'm not sure how much time I'll have to do a proper ref orz;;;;;
that one is pretty gross anyway, so I might re-do the entire thing if I have enough time
but I agree it looks pretty lazy *rolls*

Today I started working on my own petlookups~ I have Ci's done. C: The background is the same, but I fixed up some problems with the coding, added an image and some more content. After this, I have to do Ryuku and Lanse.

EDIT:
I've made my adoptable set. C:

ADOPTABLE SET.
IT IS ADORABLE.

HNNNG. /froths

skyekittie - July 24, 2011 03:38 AM (GMT)
Thanks, Dodo~ 8D

I've made a board here for adopt trades.

almost done with all my written content!!

skyekittie - August 7, 2011 11:05 AM (GMT)
double post because I am ~rebel~

Aside from Cho's story, all of her written content is done!!
now I need to finish off the rest of her chapters and draw some more art
I'm going to be pretty busy with school this week, but I'm pretty hopeful that I'll get everything done whooo~!

Question: should I include a why me/why not me and a why choquii section? tbh, I find them pretty stupid but ahhh I don't know, some people think they are needed.

Heartless - August 7, 2011 02:39 PM (GMT)
i never do why me/why not me
why me: this application
why not me: stuff you didn't like in this application

IT'S PRETTY SELF EXPLANATORY


for the why choquii... it kind of depends
if there's some like super special reason you want her then i spose so
but in general if you reason is just "i like uc rg aishas and also she has a nice name" then i'd go with no as those reasons go without saying
(honestly like 99% of them time even wen people have "why this pet" with other reasons, their other reasons are super flimsy and you can tell they're just adding them in to try and seem like "i don't just want her cuz she's uc!!!" )

so basically... no to the why me/why not me
for the why this pet, include it if you want but your app won't have some big gaping hole if you choose not to



are you doing dedications?
i remember when back in the day, dedications were the thing, but then they kind of fell out of style
but whilst doing my app stalking i noticed that a lot of people are doing them!
and i'm kind of just like "this app is my dedication" ffffff

Some people are stupid because what you put in an app is totally up to you. I honestly still write the why me, but I think the why not me is stupid because I'm very critical of myself, and I'll probably tell the foster something that would make them uncomfortable.

Anyway, I'm rambling now. What I'm trying to say is that if you feel comfortable writing those sections, then by all means, go for it. And if you don't want to write it, then leave it out. Don't even mention it - maybe the foster won't notice.

It's the people that actually force their opinions on the foster that bother me...


"WHY ME...

I don't like Why Mes so I'm not going to write one. I think they're stupid and this application should show you why you should choose me."


It just seems arrogant to me whenever people do that.

But now I'm just ranting, so I'll shut up now. :C

Heartless - August 7, 2011 05:15 PM (GMT)
"i included this why me section so that i can tell you i'm not writing a why me section" ffff

if you put in a why me, i'd suggest doing a why not me
just doing "why me" comes off as kind of arrogant ffff
like LOOK AT ALL MY GOOD QUALITIES, the point of the "why not me" is to balance that out
which is why i'm a fan of just leaving them out...
i've never seen anyone say anything in a "why me" section that a foster couldn't gather from simply looking at your account/your app

save for sometimes people pull the "now i know all the other applicants promise this but I MEAN IT FOR REALSIES"
but uhh what applicant doesn't feel that way ffff

personally i dislike application sections as whole, they just seem like a bunch of stating the obvious to me xD
o app process, look what you make me do (o o)9

Or you could write a why me and include other reasons why not me in that why me so that it doesn't seem too arrogant? Idk. Like Hearty said, it's pretty easy to tell what you will and won't do from an app. >>

skyekittie - August 8, 2011 08:14 AM (GMT)
Thanks for the opinions! I'm going to leave the sections out and hope that my app/accounts speak for me I guess. xD; (should probably keep working on updating my petlookups oops)
I hate the application sections as well. D| It is so awkward to write about yourself

Uhhh as for a dedication...I'm thinking of just doing a petlookup. Kudos who the people who have time for multiple petpages, a userlookup, galleries, etc... But I agree, the hours spent on my app should really be dedication enough. 8D;;
