Monsters Working Aloft

RSS

Fandom, after all, is born of a balance between fascination and frustration: if media content didn’t fascinate us, there would be no desire to engage with it; but if it didn’t frustrate us on some level, there would be no drive to rewrite or remake it.

please use ur new super power

It’s not a super power, it’s a survival technique actually ^^;

My higher pitched “cute/friendly” voice that isn’t at all like my regular speaking voice I’ve just realized is my “disarming mechanism” for dealing with strangers and authorities. o_o

Time to go work out and get so fucking swole, you guys.

On Developing a New Character

"Okay, so, a high school freshman girl who loves metal and magical girl manga who happens to be a werewolf."

"Alright, and she should dress in these cute metalhead dresses."

"Oh! And what if, to cope with the alarming werewolf transformation, she associates it with kinda like being a magical girl."

"…And maybe she tries being a magical girl as a werewolf?!"

Together we’ll touch the stars.

What’s this from? I love it!

This is Rai and her not yet named dragon and they’re actually just characters floating in a nebulous idea of a fantasy adventure comic that involves space, magic, and alien robots.
It’s on the backburner until I finish some other stories first. Hopefully there will be more of Rai and dragon friend in the future though!

He's the man that's got what you need.

But you say he’s just a friend?

I couldn’t think of anything but that line. XD

Well, my main character was a homunculi designed to be a war weapon, but was too sympathetic to actually kill anyone, so he was put into permanent storage. He emerges years later from the remains of the facility and goes on a journey to figure out what to do, fighting forces that turn out to be those people who made him. Also, giant anime styles fights are involved >_>

Speaking of anime style fights, Kilo Monster used to be able to transform into a golden dragon, super saiyan style. 

//shuffles in// for the uh meme thing, uhm, my (main) oc is not the best socially, due to not being raised the same as his peers u3u (If you could, could you tell me more about Kilo? He's my favorite ouo; but you don't have to obviously!) (Also I feel I should note I'm a big fan of your comic and can't wait to see poor Kilo in the comic again ;n; )

Kilo Monster doesn’t really know anymore how to be like other Zid’ral, having grown up in the melting pot that is Centro. He feels very disconnected from his original culture.

(Don’t tell anyone this, buuutttttt, we’ll be seeing poor Kilo Monster in three more pages…;D)

mines a crazed, hispanic, wolfman, barbarian who lives in a post-apocalyptic wasteland and may or may not be a incredibly dysfunctional manifestation of my macho power fantasies

Kilo Monster started out as a warped macho power fantasy but was subverted in his latest evolution where his greatest power comes from his sensitivity and kindness.
