ask-childphantom asked: Im sorry to bother u again, but u seemed to not have replied to the ask i had sent u about making this ask blog. i really wanted to know if this was alright. i am not to sure about child!phantom's past (nexon never says) or his personality. but i have read ur fanfiction on what u think might have been like. so i hope that i can do this well... sorry for bothering u! (>x<)
Ahh…I’m afraid I never received that ask! If I don’t reply to an ask on my main (Dolphin-Fly) blog within a week, chances are that it didn’t go through the system and that you should try sending it again. That goes for all of you~
That said, I assume the child!Phantom you are referring to is the Phantom depicted in Hot Sand and Doors to Utopia. I’m making this judgement based on the content of the blog. I regret to inform you that both of those stories were written before Nexon revealed Phantom’s true backstory—the truth of the matter is that he is actually a noble who ran away to become a thief, not a street orphan.
That said, keep the following in mind.
A lot of people still subscribe profusely to the Hot Sand version of Phantom’s backstory over the Secret Story version of Phantom’s backstory and if you present it as a AU version/HS version, it would probably still be very well received if executed properly! I personally encourage it, and am very flattered that you have chosen my Phantom backstory to use for your askblog. I wish you the best of luck.
Title: Raison D’Etre
Characters: Heroes (protag Freud/protag Evan)
Chapter: One (more to come)
Summary: While helping evacuate a city attacked by the Black Mage, Freud discovers a child who no longer has parents to care for it. Against his better judgement, he chooses to take the child in and raise him among the Heroes. And he names that found baby boy, Evan. AU story where Evan is raised by Freud and the Heroes.
Read chapter one below!
People responded really well to this, so here’s the story that I had been drawing the sketches to conceptualize it for. This is an AU STORY, which means it is OUT OF THE CANON UNIVERSE. Everything will addressed eventually, do not worry! This is my new big project~
Today’s MINI TOPIC: Maplestory RED First Impression, pros and cons based on Spadow’s update.
(The next, true article regarding Luminous has been postponed)
»go to yard sale
»buy all four of the Bartimaeus books for five bucks, with all books in fucking flawless condition (two of the books being hardback)
»for five bucks
Guys help I am overwhelmed with emotions you have no fucking idea how much I love the Bartmaeus books. I mean, like a lot of people, the ending of Ptolemy’s Gate sent me into a butthurt nerd rage (NATHHHHHHHIAAAANNIAALLLLL FUUUCCCKKKK) but god DAMN. These books are near flawless. Inventive, well written, creative, and full of loveable yet despicable characters to attach yourself to. The Bartimaeus trilogy is up there with Artemis Fowl in what inspired my writing style. For me to find all of the books in the trilogy, plus a special volume of the book that I never even knew existed all for five bucks…
Wow. Good day. Seriously good day.
The analysis for character death motives in Maplestory went over much better than I expected, with a good 35 notes.
So that leaves me with the question: Would you guys like more article pieces on Maplestory and entertainment venues, similar to the character deaths one? I was thinking of one that looked at the general flaws of the Luminous character (not personality flaws, but flaws of the class as a whole), as he was mentioned at the very tail end of the last article.
So, the question is: interested in more articles?
