Where was I...

Remember last post, two weeks ago, when I mentioned round two of a cold?
Cold won.
Had to go see a doctor, get some antibiotics to kick that nasty thing out of me.
I'm pretty much out of it now. Still coughing a bit, mostly due to the poor air quality caused by all the fires around here.

There are apartment news that are very slowly developing. More on that another time.

Energy level extremely low. Might be the heat. Or whatever that cold leeched out of me. Can't quite seem to whip up the strength to draw fun stuff for myself like I used to. Still, I managed to do some before I need to concentrate on serious work.



Threw these pages-ideas down together over the past...well, since last time I posted WT stuff.
Warning: fail dialogs. Just there to get the ideas across, nothing more.

I'm still having fun with the ideas, I'm just doubting it would make a good story in the end. Ah well, I'm doing this for fun only, so nah. No need to be serious (that's just the part of me that wants to nitpick and destroy what I do that's rearing up its ugly head again).
That's what happens when you're surrounded by awesome story people all the time, who all have awesome ideas. You look at your stuff and go "meh". Hey, I ain't complaining! It forces me to try and think better about story.
Since this is the equivalent of a rough first draft, no wonder it's wobbly everywhere.

Reposting the previous pages, just as a reminder. It's been a while.



Mountain Spirits stuff continuing.

This just keeps growing in awesome.
I really can't wait to see this finished... but on the other hand, I don't want it to be finished, because then it would be over. Hmm.
Are you planning on filling this out into something more akin to the other portions?

Unfortunately no. It isn't worth more of my time when I need to get back to work on some serious comic work.
I don't get paid for this, it will never go beyond the internet. I only do it for fun, and fun time is growing shorter and shorter.

Iroh. "He. Doesn't. Listen." **squees over Iroh**

*squees over the rest, too, but Iroh is, well, awesome*

( Oh, you're mentioned in glowing terms in a few comments on http://forum.rpg.net/showthread.php?t=448165 -- a fellow is watching and posting his reactions to the Avatar series, starting at the beginning.)

Run, Zhao, run! See Zhao run!

Poor Iroh- he's being too careful (maybe I'm playing him as too careful, but I can't see him acting rashly either)
He'll end up living way longer than Zhao that way.

Zhao getting swallowed reminded me of Jack getting eaten by the Kraken in the second Pirates movie XD Awesome.

I had forgotten about the Kraken (haven't seen or thought about Pirates in a long while). You're right, it does have similarities. Another subconscious shot creeping in.

OH ZHAO...

One day he is gonna anger a really nasty god. The kinda of god that doesn't use brute force but a lot of head fuckery and mind-games.

Not Azula...

If Azula became a goddess with suprenatural power...watch out world.

bwahahahahaha!! AWESOME!!! I love Zhao's solution to everything- smash it to bits!

Sometime, you can use talk. Other times, show of force to demonstrate you mean business.
Zhao is good to talk when it comes to make speeches. Negociation skills still needs work. Especially when he's in a hurry.

I'm just hoping it's not Koh...

Hmmm...you are tempting me to use Koh.
This character definitely needs more love.

Colds/flus sure are going around these days. Feel better soon!

Love these pages, though. Zhao doesn't listen but, really, where would we be if he did? :)

We'd have to make him deaf to make sure he never listened.

Zhao hasn't learned many ways to make problems disappear. The usual, simple method is simply to destroy or kill it.
I'm sure he learned a bit about diplomacy, but rarely gets the patience to use it.
Feeling way better, thank you!

Oh man, this is really interesting. I'm glad you're sharing your notes with us like this.

Also, the ending of this section? That was a pretty awesome cliffhanger!

Even if it isn't the best version that could be, it's still fun to just throw down ideas and play with them.

Next part should be a bit short- too bad, for it involves some more Zhao vs Azula fun, but their actual interaction is all a bit fuzzy in my head.
Maybe it's the cold that makes the fuzzy, ha ha!

Hehe. The image of Zhao, running scared... ^_^ That is too rich for words.

Many times, we are our own worst critics. We're composing a story, and there is always a voice at the back of our heads, asking why, and maybe this doubt creeps in: but I think this is worth telling/composing. Not only is it well thought-out, but you've researched quite a few of the elements you've used, and you're putting them together in a way that not only makes a good story, but it is also fun to read.

Alas, the cold is gone, but the malady lingers on... I hope you feel better, and soon, fingers crossed.

With those sideburns, Zhao is always fuzzy, so you're in good company. ^_^

I on the other hand, is recently sleeping my ass on..... T___T I have too much free time. So much free time, that it tricked me into slacking off and and escaping life(by sleeping for around 13 hours a day). Something is really wrong with me.

I wish I had time to sleep 13 hours a day.

I join in the chorus of compassion...glad you seem to feel better, I hope it keeps going in that direction! Also...I hope the fires stop soon! :(

Here's something that might help to put you up on your feet... 2 new songs from Les Trois Accords! (had you heard about "Tel Père, Tel Flic"? new film this Summer..haven't seen it yet but the song they made -Merci Beaucoup- is hilarious) Also, check out their hommage to RBO:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5KhjPfnRyJA

Hug!

Thanks so much for the link! I knew about the movie, but not that they had done songs for it.
Funny, I had never heard "Nicole" before- so that was more than 2 new songs for me, yay!
