Yahhh me too (sometimes)... it's pretty time consuming though! Hopefully I will be able to write more eventually, I still work on it in my head a lot. It also doesn't help that I have like 3 other stories in my head too... so I alternately think about those as well and about getting them written. BTS is definitely the most fleshed-out one however...
Oh, I suppose I'll do another one while I'm at it!
Edit- by the way, I just realized Lunie's post was from like a year ago... lol, but that's ok! Glad someone resurrected this thread!Lehn Marthill
(from The Blood-tinged Stone)
1- Originally Lehn was Ren, but I really thought Rin and Ren seemed a little too cutesy together... Lehn is a maybe a little bit of a girly name, especially with how I spell it, but I just think it works for him overall. Unfortunately, with stupid Vocaloid (sorry if anyone likes Vocaloid, I mean really, I'm sorry.... >.>) there are characters named Rin and Len... soooo just wanting to establish that mine were first =). Oh and the last name is pretty newish... so it's subject to change.
2- I definitely felt that Rinhelyd needed a human counterpart to remind her of her childhood, but in a more positive light. Since Lehn's childhood is so traumatic and difficult (despite him being human in a human world), they kind of have that common ground that they can build a bond upon. Lehn is an introvert that is trying to break out of his shell, whereas Rin is more of a troubled soul trying to find stability... so he is also a foil to her in that aspect.
3- Originally Lehn was actually a thief-type character, still living on the streets but more of your tough guy/badass kind of person... However, I've read a lot of books, seen anime etc with this exact kind of character wayyy too much, so I wanted him to be a little more original I guess? I'm not sure if he comes off that way at all, but I definitely intend to develop him more as a character (if I continue writing of course...)
4- Lehn also gets beaten/raped twice so far in the story... and that's only by chapter 4... I really worry about him (and his cruel creator).
ok, one more...Aarelyn
(also from BTS)
1- I thiiiink I originally came up with this name when making a character for the MMORPG Asheron's Call. I've always loved names that start with 'A', and I have a bother named Aaron, so her name is slightly based off of his. I used this name a lot when making game characters, so it was natural for me to make a WoW character with this name. To be honest I'm not sure if the WoW character or the story character came first, but it may have been about the same time.
2- Aarelyn acts as Rin's buddy character, but also sort of a mentor. Personally I don't think Rin likes her very much at first, as she is way too upbeat for Rin's tastes, but she discovers that Aarelyn also has a very serious side when it comes to magic as well as the animosity between her race and humans.
3- I think Aarelyn's hair has changed shade/color/texture occasionally, but I think I pretty much came back to how she was originally. Also, she was more serious overall when I first thought of her character in BTS, but upon the development of Cynerra's character, I decided I needed one that was a little more fun and energetic. Her magic has also changed a lot from how I thought of it originally, and it's always evolving in my head...
4- Aarelyn's markings rarely show in my drawings, but they are on her shoulder area. She also has a very good reason for having an affinity for humans...
Ok, that's it for now =)
