Meaningful by SavedArt

This is the first critique I've ever did, but for some reason I felt it was worth doing. Impact. You made one. Definitely. It might not...

Activity


Me: Alright now that we're back Lets get to Physical Description. So you're 17 but how old do you appear?

Akira: oh 14 definitely. that way I can always look younger than I am. for a while into adulthood people will make negative assumtions about me, but after that they start asking what my secret is to looking so young. *laughs*

Me: What is your race and or species.

Akira: well race is Japanese, but species? you mean not just the beastie creatures, but the fantasy beings as well exist here?

Me: well yeah. can't have one without the other y'know.

Akira: well species sounds a bit primitive for  fantasy beings. How about supernatural race? And I think I would like to be Reaper born.

Me: Reaper born? Alright may I ask why?

Akira: Beausiris' obsession with paperwork. Think about it. Reapers are the ultimate record keepers.

Me: Fair enough. *chuckle* then we can assume your skin type and what it's like so what is your skin tone.

Akira: middling not quite fair, but not quite darker

Me: and you have hair or do you want to shave it off. *grins*

Akira: I won't shave it off, but I will keep it short. Short and straight and not too thick. And I want it Black.

Me: okay eyes.

Akira: Well Hazel. I like that idea. nothing strange about them just hazel with typical shape and eyelash length.

Me: and your sight?

Akira: about typical. I've got to have good sight in order to do my job. Though that doesn't stop me from picking out cool frames. They make me look more intellectual.

Me: didn't think you'd care about that kind of thing...

Akira: Looking young makes people take you less seriously. Shiest, Griggs, and a few other particular characters here didn't take me all that seriously until I put on the glasses. Though I have to take them off when working with Damien. That perv tries hitting on me.

Me: That Demon will hit on anything with a pulse as young as 8, it's not surprising. alright.. so Any other distinguishing marks?

Akira: Nothing yet.... wait.. birthmark. On the sides of my head. From use of forceps when I was born. Each spot is discolored

Me: Interesting. I wonder if that counts with the lore about birthmarks being how you were killed in a past life. 

Akira: I don't know... what kind of death would cause marks like that?

Me: We'll have to research that. do you believe in reincarnation?

Akira: not involved with my appearance, but yes. I also believe that imaginary friends are spirits who have not yet moved on to a new life, but still wish to be useful and so guide or keep children company. However we'll hit that subject in the personality section shall we?

Me: Sure. Height, Weight, and body build.

Akira: 5'4" 125lbs. I'm built skinny, but strong. I mean after all I work out regularly and practice martial arts. I'm a B cup, but I bind so that I can keep an androgynous appearance.

Me: okay what about Piercings or tatoos?

Akira: even though I'm a minor yes. I have a set of gauges. Not those ridiculous tea saucer sized ones just some small ones. About 6mm. I've got a Labret set that I believe is called Dolphin bites.

Me: any personal meaning behind them?

Akira: Well The dolphin bites were a 17th birthday present. Got them because hey I'm a fan of Disturbed. They can still exist in this alternate world right?

Me: well... I don't see why not. I mean certain things in history may have changed with the presence of fantasy creatures. I think we'd be a few years behind on some advancements due to humans having to fend off more dangerous predators than we have now, but a few dangerous critters wouldn't stop a few bands forming. Okay so lets move on. Are there any other unusual characteristics about you?

Akira: I'm left handed, my ears slightly point, my eyes glow in the dark like an animals.

Me: Okay Blood type.

Akira: Reapers have blood types?

Me: Reaper born children do. Your reaper parents would be retired and thus have taken human forms, but retained their own reaper genetics. How else do you think reapers are made?

Akira: I don't know I supposed they were chosen from people passed on.

Me: well yes technically. New reapers are chosen from those who die with reaper blood in their lineage. Cornelius Rosenkrantz got in on a 7 generation old connection on his mother's side. anyways, since they take on human forms when they retire they develop human blood types.

Akira: okay what about the Jelical cats then?

Me: we're getting off subject, but they are the spirits of reapers who were killed on the job and have not chosen to reincarnate yet. They don't retain their reaper genetics when they reincarnate though. Blood type!

Akira: ah... ah... AB negative?

Me: Thank you! We will have a nice long talk about reapers later on. Do you have any special abilities or powers?

Akira: Jelicals. I talk to Jelicals. I can also see on duty Reapers whether they want me to or not. I can see whose number is up and I can read a reapers book.

Me: well that all seems pretty sound to me. Your over all health?

Akira: I'm in good health. I get the typical cold or flu every now and then, but nothing a few days of rest and  some of my father's old remedies can't cure. no under lying issues unless you decide to slap me with something just to throw a wrench in my cogs.

Me: hmmm who knows maybe. We'll see what my inspiration decides. What do you smell like and what is your voice like.

Akira: smell like? uhm... leather. Leather and paper. Old books paper not fresh computer paper. The leather's got a bit of a spice to it. nut meg and olive oil to be exact. and my voice.... never thought of that before... you know what. okay... somewhere between Coleen clinkenbeard and Caitlen glass

Me: uhm.. characters please. My wife does that to me all the time then I end up having to look them up. The readers might not necessarily know off hand either.

Akira: Hima nohara/Riza Hawkeye and Winry/ Miss Anderson.

Me: does everyone who voices Shin Chan voice full metal or somethng?

Akira: just abouts.

Me: alright Give me some of your mannerisms.

Akira: I don't slouch, is kind of hurts to.

Me: I thought your health was good?

Akira: just because it kind of hurts to sit like a lazy bum doesn't mean my back is damaged.

Me: hey! I resemble that remark....

Akira:  I usually have a relaxed stance. I don't feel the need to fidget or lean against an object unless I have been standing for a long period. I walk with confidence again no slouching. not like I think I'm better than anyone else, but that Iknow what I'm doing and know what I want. I tend towards a set sleep pattern. ingrained in me at a young age. 5am each morning I am up though I am slow to get going. it's not that I am lazy just... a night owl. I have a hard time sleeping and so I work late. and when I do sleep then well I'm a star fish sleeper or a captain morgan.

Me: alright. To the reader who is unfamiliar with the captain morgan sleep position, translate his one leg up position on the bottle into a sleep position.

Akira: I might make a suggestion. Sleeping pattern and position might be better suited in personality. Thats something to make a note of in the interview description.

Me: Noted. What does your face say about your personality.

Akira: nothing. When people look at me they will see what they think is a 14 year old kid and they will make their own assumptions even if I had my personality tattooed on my face.

Me: and what is your default expression?

Akira: I've been told I always have a smirk on my face. kind of like I'm looking at a younger sibling that I'm guiding and we've jsut had one of those heart felt moments you see int he movies.

Me: chick flick face then.

Akira: better than your resting bitch face.

Me: Touche. What is your self care like?

Akira: I like to be regular clean. like taking a bath every other day or whenever I've had a particularly messy day working with my parents. I like my hair cropped short because that keeps it's maintenance low. I don't do the whole makeup thing. It's a mask and anyone who wears it thinks they aren't pretty. And if they argue it it just shows more vividly their insecurity. my clothes aren't always the neatest either but hey I'm 17 I'm not expected to dress to impress anyways.

Me: and finally what is a comfortable Temperature for you?

Akira: I do not like too much heat. the range of 60s to mid 70s is perfect for me. It feels funny to be ending out this way.

Me: it's not over we've still got the  personality/personal and General history parts.

Akira: Not what I meant. more like it feels like Temperature was a funny thing of end on. like there should be more. we might have to work on that.

Me: yeah I get what you're saying. Well for now, This has been Part two of Akira's interview. Stay tuned for part 3 the most detailed part of the interview.
Interview With Akira Part 2
Part 2 of Akira's interview. you can see I like to really get into in with my characters as it helps me to write them better. it's like having an imaginary friend that people don't look at me crazy for having.

Here is part 1 of Akira's interview.

The character Akira Takagowa is the original creation of Ashley "Sethian-Motzart" Dirk 

:iconmyartismine: :iconstop1plz::iconstop2plz::iconstop3plz::iconstop4plz:
Loading...
Me: *lounging on a chase in the corner of Akira's office* Akira do you ever regret your creation?

AKira: A little sometimes. *sitting at her desk tapping away at the keys of her computer filling int he character records.* After all I was created based completely of the picture of a character in a game with a story that started out as a copy of a movie with dragons added. It does make you feel rather insignificant and.... not your own person. like you don't really belong.

Me: Do you think you can grow into your own with some work. *sitting up 

Akira: Yes of course. If you’ll help me to.

Me: Well then What do you want your full name to be?

Akira: Akira Takagowa

Me: *chuckle* we don’t know any meanings to that do we?

Akira: Not a damn thing for Takagowa, but Akira means Bright boy

Me: hehe alright then.. how do you pronounce your name?

Akira: Pretty much as it is spelled. There are general nuances within the Japanese language that would give the name a certain sound when spoken. Although for those reading who don't speak Japanese I suppose Ah-keer-ah Ta-kah-gow (Like gown without the n) ah will do.

Me: Alright well any nicknames?

Akira: Some of the clowns in the Writer's wasteland refer to me as Kira. Now that does have a meaning to it. It means killer according to Death note.

Me: And what to you prefer to be called? 

Akira: Akira, but if someone must call me by anything but my first name... Taka

Me: Lion king much? *chuckles*

Akira: No, *rolls her eyes* if they aren't going to refer to me by my first name then they can refer to me by my last and since it is a mouth full Taka will do.

Me: heh okay well next question. Birth date.

Akira: Well that’s an interesting one to discuss. I mean that could very well be one of  many different dates. After all Where shall my origins lie Earth or Atreyu or else where?

Me: hm… that is difficult… I don’t know… I’d originally created you with the idea of bringing fantasy into the real world…. So… maybe… maybe you are to set the bar for another story line all together.

Akira: how so?

Me: Well imagine if all the fantasy creatures were real.

Akira: Interesting.... You're not going to put me back on that Oil rig with that pervert are you?

Me: No! Geez! That whole thing was written in 7th grade for one and two it was an almost word for word copy of Armageddon up until the owner charges into Perv's room.

Akira: Well then what do you have in mind?

Me: Not sure just yet. How about we continue this as an interview and go from there?

Akira: Then I will answer about my birth date. 1998 September 21st. Roughly when I was created which is also where I'd like to be placed in the timeline of this new world.

Me: 17 years you'll be this year then. shit how time has flown. you realize you'll be apart of the Millennials? and that most of my generations pretty much hates you.

Akira: I understand, but don't generations usually hate the generation after them because of some perceived notion that the younger generation has it easy? So no matter what generation you were to place me in, someone would still have an problem with me.

Me: True. So what would that make your astrological sign?

Akira: It would make me a Virgo and I was born in the year of the Tiger.

Me: what are t he odds *chuckles* Alright So I suppose we need to come up with an occupation for you.

Akira: That can be difficult since by all rights I am a minor. I may be proficient as your record keeper here in the wasteland, but not to many 17 year old teens get those kinds of clerical jobs. Were I in Atreyu I'd have been trained in the Colleges of Delain and become a record keeper there.

Me: Well then we need to work our way around the age thing. or I'll just saw screw it and drop you in Atreyu. Hope you don't mind not having indoor plumbing.

Akira: Oh har har no thank you I prefer my toilet flushing thanks. hm.. Perhaps a family business?

Me: Yes! That reminds me of the Facebook page that I follow "The Libertarian homeschooler" The family has their own business and their sons make money like an allowance by helping out with the business. 

Akira: So my parents run a business and I help out with the record keeping. They breed and sell Dragons... Well species that are related to them at least.

Me: I would assume that full size dragons would in fact be restricted. Like most large exotics. Well then we don't have to worry about Rank. Your occupation is Draco breeder with a specialty in the record keeping department. We'll slip back to this subject further in the interview. However we are going to stop here for the moment.

Akira: Why?

Me: I want to give readers a preview of how I run these interviews. It is to go with the character interview sheet.

Akira: Creator... With all due respect, you may be the writer, but I still run the interviews. 

Me: well yes, but they still need to see that. I think thats part of why the Wasteland group didn't go the way I'd hoped. Regardless here is where the interview ends for Part one of your interview. Part 2 will me quite longer as we'll be focusing on Physical Description and possibly Personality.

Akira: I aught to take a personality test. those always have good insight.

Me: then you will. until then I must post this. you keep up on everyone else's records. *gets up and leaves the writer's wasteland*
Interview with Akira Pt. 1
One of several characters that inspired the creation of the character interview, Akira was a character whom I'd created in middle school. I had never gotten around to really fleshing her own and so I started to interview her. This is just one of several methods I use to flesh out the character interview process. I like to run it like a full interview and show their personality. All the other character interviews will be between Akira and the character as she became my character record keeper when I realized I'd left my oldest character in the bin and didn't give her nearly enough attention.

Character interview questions
So as a writing prompt I put together a character interview. I started out wanting to perfect my character sheet, but then thought of how interesting it would be to sit down an interview my character. So I searched around for different character development information and worked out a list of questions (which is by no means complete as there is no end to the possible questions that could be asked of a character.) So here it is. My character interview sheet. You can interview your own characters simply by filling in the Answer lines or you could write out the interview in full prose using is sheet as a basis for the questioning. Go nuts! have fun!

Also if you have any questions that you think should be added by all means suggest int he comments with a note of what section the question should be placed in. you will be credited for your additions. 

Note: Not all of these questions will be applicable to all characters (or all worlds they are created for) so just edit as needed for each individual character and this is also where the reader suggestions come in. 

Here are a few of my characters interviews. I will link them as I get done with parts of them.

Caitlen grere by Sethian-Motzart
Caitlen grere
She's one of my older characters and one I love to torment. I once took a mary sue test for her and actually managed to break even with her even though her life is utter misery. My wife and I love to take our characters and put them in different life situations so their life's timelines are never settled. well Caitlen here has had a time of it. She's been abused, battered, killed, attacked, suffered miscarriage after miscarriage and almost never settled with a fully happy life. She's also a Thierenthrope (Think Lycanthrope, but with any animal) I've never decided what animal she takes the form of. Even though I torment her she is one of my favored characters and has quite a maternal instinct and is an excellent cook. Excellent to the point of being a Chef for the most important family in Kingston glade.

Ever wonder what your character does when you stop writing for the day? Ever wonder what they would have to say to you about the hell you put them through? ever wonder what your characters reaction would be to meeting the character of another writer? Well here is where you can see. Come along one and all and invite your friends. hell invite your enemies. Hell invite any writer who is curious!

It's nothing much right now. Just something to jump start my reconnection with an old friend. Though As I have time I may well add more.

  • Mood: Cheerful
  • Listening to: silence
  • Reading: urban farm magazine
  • Watching: computer screen
  • Playing: at writing
  • Eating: fish sticks
  • Drinking: Water
