The Squad
First (and hopefully NOT only :crossfingers: revision ) picture of 2018; Kira with three of her closest friends taking a group photo. This was originally going to be a Christmas 'photo', but things got way too busy for me to finish in time. Maybe next year...

I want to tell you guys more about these peeps right here, and you may recognize them (you guys already know about Kira =P), but I kind of feel it would be obnoxious of me if I do. You will have more info about them eventually.

Apologies for the watermark. There are lazy thieves with no life out there :paranoid:
  • Listening to: Gymnopedie No. 1 - Erik Satie
  • Reading: Original story draft
  • Eating: Cheese pastry
  • Drinking: Spiked coffee
*staggers into the house after getting off work* Good God...!! I will never...EVER...go back to work the day after coming home from a 12-hour drive again!
Too tired for this

So yeah...I was away for the past few days with the family, and I just got home this morning. And I just got back from work, exhausted! I had hoped the hotel we stayed in had internet access, which they did, but the connection was insecure, meaning it was easier for some dirtbag with no life to hack me. We were watching the Weather Channel our whole stay...
I really wanted to check up here to see if you guys affected by the hurricanes were okay (you know who you are), but I'm not risking getting hacked. So for that, I am very, very sorry I've been silent here and not responding when and if you sent messages! You guys were on my mind while I was away, and I just hope you guys and your families are alright!

Hey Kira, mind if I ask you something about your story's rough draft.

Do you make up the stuff as you go to create your own world or do you research stuff to help you figure out how you wanna set up your story's world?
Shilohkai Featured By Owner Jan 8, 2018  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Hey, David. I actually do both.

Truth be told, (this is just me) I usually create my characters first, then build the world around them, making up stuff. I have an idea of what kind of world I want my story to take place in at that point, and then I do research while still making stuff up as I go along.
Sharidaken Featured By Owner Jan 8, 2018
That's exactly what I've been doing.

That's some really good thinking you have there. :) I like to make up my own characters and world as I go, of course I do take some inspiration from my favorite shows and games. But I do tend to expand my ideas a bit more if I find something catchy which is why I thought about doing some historical research on what some of my ideas might fit into.

Question: Do you know what the differences are for Twilight Princess HD and the regular version?

And would you trade in the Wii version for the HD one?
Shilohkai Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
The major differences in Twilight Princess HD and the original(s) are the graphics (obviously), the Amiibos give you items, there's more stuff to make some sidequests easier to solve, it has a Hero Mode you can access at the start, and the Cave of Shadows. Also, the world itself is just like the Gamecube version (Link is a lefty), while it's mirrored like the Wii version in Hero Mode. Most other differences are fixes, alterations, and for convenience. A text doesn't pop up when you get a Rupee after every time you turn on the game, for one.

I've been tempted, but...personally, I probably wouldn't trade it. I'd rather by a copy of the HD version and keep the other.

Shilohkai Featured By Owner Feb 15, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thank you! It means 'tranquil sea'; it's just two names I thought sounded good together as one word.
