Okay, I've been inactive for too long. It's time to make a comeback! (Or at least, that's the plan...
First of all, compatibility issues I've complained about in past journals are no longer a problem. I should now be able to upload anything at anytime, within reason. And barring disaster.
Of course, that raises the question of why I haven't posted anything lately. The most honest answer is that I've been kinda lazy
Even if I wasn't, though, I've had a slight case of writer's block while working on The Quest for the Wheat Sword
and my one-shot story, "Stand Out." Also, these past few months have been kinda busy (I know, that doesn't excuse my summer laziness
), but I should have some time off over the holiday season, so I hope to get some
I still can't quite get myself into the mood to work on my stories, so I'm gonna try posting bios for some new Omnitrix aliens. With any luck, that will get me back into the swing of things. Of course, I can't promise I'll actually get them done in the near future, so to help
encourage me, here's a sneak preview on the aliens I'm planning out:
- Barring disaster, this guy should be posted mere moments after this journal goes up, so I won't say much about him. All I will
say is that he fills a role similar to Ghostfreak and Alien X.
*The Mythos Pentagram
- This is actually a group of five mythology-themed aliens. One of them, Stonehide, I posted early to enter in a contest. The rest will work their way out sooner or later...
- (Pronounced "lazy eye") I wanted to have an alien like XLR8 and NRG, and this is the best I could come up with
Anyways, he's a sloth-like alien with eye-based powers. He's quickly becoming one of my favorites, so he should be up fairly soon. Just wait and "see" what he can do
- This alien's powers are straightforward enough that I can't tell you much without giving it all away
- Two aliens that are almost
completely unrelated. The only thing they have in common is that they were inspired by Binkatong
's contest here: binkatong.deviantart.com/journ…
I probably won't actually enter the contest, since we can't choose our own songs, but after hearing about the contest I started getting ideas of my own. Rather than tell you what they can do, though, I'll direct you to the songs they were inspired by and see if you can guess. Wingbreaker: www.youtube.com/watch?v=xgkbjh…
- I haven't yet come up with a name for this guy. I'm considering "Micromind", but that sounds too much like a certain movie that came out not too long ago: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Megamind
If you guys come up with a better name, I'm open to suggestions. Oh, but that means I'll have to tell you what he can do, doesn't it. Darn. Well, this alien is loosely based on one of the new Pokemon: bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wik…
- I knew
I was forgetting something! Gateway is loosely based on the game Portal
. I haven't actually played it (yet!), but that's mostly because I hadn't known much about the game until recently. I want to postpone Gateway until after I've actually played Portal, but I've read enough about the game online to have a general idea on what I want to do for this one...
Well, I think that's about it for now. Until someday:
