Awesomeness. Pure Awesomeness.

OK. I haven't been good on updating, especially not last month. Let me tell you what's up:

ART STUFF:

- Over these past 5 months, I realized I need to learn a lot of shit to bring my vision to life. So, the actual story won't start up for another 2 years, at best.

- BUT, for the sake of this year's 10th anniversary, every member WILL have a design finished before December. Said designs might change in the future, but you'll have at least a prototype.

- I've still been drawing a lot. BUT, the only thing I've drawn for you guys is the monsters. No new human stuff I want to show you. I've drawn humans a LOT, but all of it is just practice. Like I said, I have a lot to learn.

- I won't show you any of the monsters till later. I like updating in bulk and I feel this is for the best, in case I need to make any last minute edits to earlier designs.

- For example, it was a mistake to show you those early designs for the Dragon and Chiropteran - they look different now. Don't even get me started on how much the human characters have been changing; they're really different from what was previously shown and they'll keep changing until I'm satisfied. That's why I don't want to keep updating, because it would be a waste of time. I know it's hard to trust that I'm actually doing something, but I am. It's just changing a lot.

STORY STUFF:

- I haven't continued writing my outline since February. I'm scrapping it and starting a new draft.

- "Instrumentality" is a working title. It'll be called "The Atomist."

- A big reason this won't start up for a long time is because I need to learn about a lot of different cultures. Some of you guys have been good in helping me with that, but there's still so much I need to learn.

- And also sexualities/gender identities. Those need representation, too.

- So much has changed.

- This is definitely, absolutely, at its core, pure fan-fiction, so I technically have license to use the characters from all the franchises I'm throwing into the same bucket, but... I don't wanna do that. I don't even wanna use characters from Alien/Predator. It would distract too much. Imagine Danny Glover in a Gundam, fighting a Lacuna-made Terminator in the Dream World. That's not what's gonna happen. I'm not writing fan-fiction about the characters, I'm writing fan-fiction about the worlds, and what would happen if they all existed in the same continuity.

- Obviously Alien/Predator will take presidence over everything else, so that aesthetic will come out the most. It's hard bringing Giger's style out in animation-style. Still learning.

- I'm just gonna drop this on you: Chiropterans can shapeshift because their bodies are 100% Particle-Wave Matter, aka Hard Light. Particle-Wave Matter is, to put it simply, "organic" Hard Light. It's the same stuff the Xenos are made of. No, Xenos can't shapeshift. It's complicated.

- I mentioned all the cool shit Hard Light can do, so how do Predators even stand a chance? I'm working on the science behind this, but basically, plasma bolts can fuck up a Hard Light configuration. So, yeah, hot things are bad for Hard Light armor (Xeno blood included). Am I making any sense? You know what I'm trying to get at, right? Would that work?

- Teleportation is not a thing. It will never be a thing.

- That's all I can think of right now. So yeah, sorry for no pics since Christmas. I'll make it up to you with the creature designs.

- Oh, yeah - all the Black Liquid Monsters are made of that Particle-Wave Matter stuff. They're just known as animals, though, and not all of them want to kill humans. It's weird. I know it's weird. I'll clear that up later.

It's fine Bloo, I can relate on how art for projects changes over time and concepts for the storyline itself change, too. I look forward to December more than just for the next Hobbit movie now. I wish you luck in this endeavor Bloo.

^ I don't understand the point you're making. Yes, there's a difference between someone's gender identity/expression/whatever and their biological sex, and the person who messed with their paperwork is very stupid for not comprehending that, but... Well, what are you saying? Because I think we may actually agree, in which case I have just argued with myself like an idiot.

Also, @Bloo: This thing seems to get bigger every time you post an update. I'm curious to see where it goes next. The idea of xenos being made of light is an interesting take, to say the least.

Very relatable Bloo. All in all eagerly awaiting December.

Heathen heart, rebel mind and a twisted soul.

"the person who messed with their paperwork is very stupid for not comprehending that"

That's what I understand from that post. It's not that different gender identities are stupid - it's just that, a medical form asking for your biological sex is not an invasion of privacy the same way a random person asking "BUT WHAT'S YOUR REAL NAME?????!" is.

ANYWAY.............

@SR: Thanks, dude. And I haven't forgotten about talking about your own project tomorrow.

@DL: Yeah, sorry that I lumped all the normal Drones/Warriors together into the same design. I'm gonna try to make variants for you guys, so that you're all slightly unique.

@DD: Yeah, it's weird how I even came to that. I guess it all started with Fire Hunter's character, 'cause I had to explain his regeneration + reincarnation ability somehow.

Don't worry, normal Xenos don't share those abilities. They're the same as they've always been.

What I'm saying is that genders should not be applied to people, only to their bodies. If there is to be gender equality, then non-binary genders are completely useless socially, unless they identify people with no genitals or with both; and linguistically they're a complete clusterfuck. I think there should be less need for people to identify with genders, not a need to add a cubic shit ton of them so people can complain about things you can't know in a language that doesn't exist. It's already hard to learn languages that assign binary genders to objects, how the hell is anyone going to communicate in a language that has a different gender for each person?

Look, I know there's a lot of non-binary identities and it seems fucking ridiculous. I agree that it sounds ridiculous, especially when the most vocal non-binary people seem to list their genders as "fuck off*," but here's the thing: a majority of these people aren't doing it to "stick it to the man," nor are they becoming non-binary because it's a cool trend. It's like being gay. They can't help it. Yes, gay people do identify with the their biological sex, but that's not the point - the point is that they can't help being gay anymore than a non-binary can help not being male or female.

It's weird because we don't grow up being taught that stuff, even though they've existed for a really long time.

I don't understand it anymore than you do because I'm a heterosexual cisgendered male. There's no way I would know what it's like to not identify with being either male or female, or feeling like a woman while I have the body of a man. No one can adequately explain it to us.

If they could just identify with being the gender they were born as, I'm sure they'd do it just so they wouldn't have to deal with all the bullshit they get. It doesn't work like that, no matter how convenient it would be. It's just the way they are. "Why can't gay people just be straight?" "Why don't poor people just buy more money?" "Why don't dead people just become alive again?"

*And honestly, I can understand why they list their gender as "fuck off," or some other seemingly pretentious/annoying thing. You're a guy - imagine everyone calling you a girl, or an it, or anything that isn't the gender you are, even after having told them millions upon millions of times. After 5, 10, 20+ years, you just get fed up with it. "What's your gender? No, your REAL gender? I bet you're just doing it for attention!!!!!" 'Fuck off' indeed.

As for the language thing - it's not like we don't make up names all the time. I can name every Pokemon type. Pokemon types aren't made up words, sure, but there's a lot of them. There are more Pokemon types than genders (or they're pretty goddamn close in numbers). If people can remember Pokemon types, they can sure as hell remember genders. Besides, it's not like words haven't been made up before. (There are 50+ Legendary Pokemon alone. Some people can instantly tell what a Pokemon's name is when they see it, despite there being 700+ normal Pokemon, and I can guarantee that at least half of those names are made up.)

By the way, I don't speak any European languages, but I do know that some of them gender specific objects. Why is that? (This one isn't exactly part of the sex argument, I'm just asking since it was brought up. I've just never known why.)

---

I really don't feel like I'm going to convince you, though. I don't blame you. I'm not exactly an authority on gender studies and I've been wrong before. I just know that people can't help feeling what they feel. They just do. They're in the minority, but that doesn't mean they don't exist and that they don't deserve to be acknowledged. The only reason it would be hard to learn these things in any language is because we've refused to acknowledge them for so long.

Admittedly, he only reason I feel so strongly about this is because I've met real trans people and real non-binary people. Before, I was extremely queerphobic (dunno if that's a word, but I guess you know what I mean). They're not doing it for attention. They're just like you and me - they're real.

They're real, and yet no one acknowledges them. Pokemon, on the other hand...

OK, just to prevent this thread from being hijacked, let's move this particular discussion to the OT Thread, if you guys don't mind.

You guys are having one of the most stupid and pointless conversations ever. Even if you did come to an agreement it wouldn't matter.

Cut that shit out.

YES, ASK ME ABOUT THE THREAD TOPIC.

I'm gonna elaborate on Fire Hunter's (legit) reason for having regeneration. Someone ask me, "Why the fuck does Fire Hunter have regeneration? Isn't that, like, stupid?"

Edit: Here's a thing - since the member characters are (obviously) gonna reenact some of the bigger fights from our RPGs, there's eventually gonna matchups like this:

Peterson VS Fire Hunter
The Doctor VS Dave
Deathdrop VS Fire Hunter
(what the hell else happened)

It's gonna be a long time before you get to see it in action, but... it's gonna happen, so, like, that's cool.
