I'm heading back for an extra year of high school on the Tuesday the 26th of August. '
I'll be a super senior.
I feel embarrassed saying that, but I find it necessary.
I wanted to let you know of this because I wanted to let you know I may be gone at times. I'm going to be extremely busy, I'm guessing- with trying to work my scehdule into a job, senior project, scholarship hunting, all that.
I didn't feel ready, plus I was concerned about my lack of scholarships- so I decided to stay an extra year. (Plus, still had my senior project / PE credit to do. )
I sometimes get that sense of " failure" but other times, I remember the senior party, and winning not once, but twice. I won one of the grand prizes which was a jar of mooonies. It was the best day in my life.
So I pocketed it in the bank. Best prize ever! I also won a suitcase. I was very happy.
Well, that's it for that topic. Let me tell you how far I am in the senior project itself.
I finished chapter 8 and I'm about half way done with chapter 9. I'm almost done with the story! Please note- I've been doing this without the advice of my teacher at the high school, because we got out of touch. When I come back to high school, I'm going to talk to her about what she's missed. As for the quality, I'm hoping it's okay... I've had a few rough spots without her help that I could have really needed her for, that I might be able to fix with her help. I don't feel comfortable giving a story away that has problems..
Netheron is a very unique story, though. At least, to me. It's my first time completing an original story instead of a fanfiction one, and it's also the first Steampunk/Victorian themed story I've done with Sci Fi themes and a touch of fantasy. That said, because I've done fanfiction works in the past, I understand it may suffer certain quality issues. I'm trying to over rule those, so please be patient. I don't find myself writing much fanfiction these days, as well. I want to branch out a bit. It's not my first time writing original fiction- I've written various fiction writings when I was younger.
I found myself a bit overwhelmed in some areas of writing the story. I'm hoping the artwork I create makes up for some of the lack of actual visuals. At this rate, it's taken me, 8 months to write this story and plan it all out, while doing other things, almost 9 months. I'm hoping it will turn out good in the end, I spent many hours on it. I better graduate after this LOL
In the meantime, I will have an upcoming feature of some elements of the story itself when I complete the writing part of it. Because I have yet to still draw some characters in a good stance (Such as Otto who I am currently drawing right now) I may use that post as an updater to draw all the main characters. The characters in the story list as followed:
Main charactersEstelle Mari Violetta
(Her role is very Elsa like, or Maleficent like... so she counts as both a main character and a villain)
Evette "Mae" Victorine
(Note: She hates being called by her first name)Clarence "Otto" Othan
(He does too)Side characters Drusilla Vernice Violetta
(Goes by "Drusilla Vernice Victorine"
taking the original last name of Mae and pretending she gave Mae it. )Julian Monette
(In some ways, he count as a villain as well. )VillainsEstelle Mari Violetta
(In the beginning)Alexander Brindlewood
(Leader of a rebellion. Enemy of Estelle)Esmeralda
(Forgot her last name. Servant of Estelle. She's the ultimate baddie in this. )
Note: I have character designs for all of these characters, I haven't showed Otto, Julian, Alexander, or Esmeralda yet, but I plan to.
The main character of this story is Mae Victorine.
