[Update!]

Hiya! My huge snake~ I have named him Serpentus (Serpent-us). He will be my first Katraan-based creature to help me in CALD~ Let's hope this works!~


Even though katraans are not able to change sizes-- I have decided, since this Katraan is for my CALD usage only, this one has two!

One is very...very, very large. A Normal sized Human man could Sit ontop of Serpet's head comfortably-- not too big, not too small...
The big Serpentus, would have trouble curling up in the lower level of my house.

The small one is still big-- but can perch up on my shoulders and parts of my arm well ^^~ He's like, a mid-sized anaconda, then.

He's pretty cool so far ^^~ I just like seeing him slither around in my mind... It's very smooth-- I think he'll do well!
He is supposed to be the carrier-out of my intentions. In fact, I think I might just have him, infact!
Yus yus :3

Update: There's been a lot of construction in the mindworld lately.

I added a second large island about 10-20 miles from the main island’s western coastline and colonized it with people and buildings. (I practically had to drag Morph and Aiden away from a card game they were trying to invent to come watch it rise out of the ocean.) (It was a one-time only event and I wanted them to be able to see it firsthand. They argued that they could just watch it later from my memories, but I insisted.) There is also life in the oceans now. (beforehand they had been sterile lifeless masses of blue)

Since everyone else but Saichania had added something to the mindscape, (Morph added a teleporter station, Aiden a monolithic spire) I asked Saichania if she wanted to add anything.

She didn’t know what to add at first, but eventually settled on planting a fragment of her essence, a “seed” so to speak, in the ground and seeing what would happen. A pink-purple glow formed around her heart and a small but intense spark detached itself from her and embedded itself in the soil several yards away. We waited curiously for a little bit, and then a seedling began to sprout from out of the hole. It swiftly gained height and blossomed briefly into the form of a large flower before it split into several vines that quickly grew around a central stalk, one that soon became a towering tree unlike any species on earth. It was the size of a redwood, but similar to a willow in many respects. There is a naturally growing stairway going a fourth of the way up the trunk into a shallow cavity in the wood. The vines have spread somewhat into intricate patterns in the air and some have rooted themselves in the ground. To finish it off, Saichania added a long streaming ribbon of silk that would glide through the air on its own, ever coiling around branches or vines and then off again. (she added it, not me)

Since its completion, we’ve noticed many ways it symbolically represents Saichania herself. The roots are her faith in god, a firm foundation allowing her to push off towards the sky. The outstretched branches are her longing for freedom, while the ones that arch downwards near the base of the trunk in part represent her protectiveness. (they form a sheltered area surrounding the pond I added around the trunk) There are more little bits of symbolism, but they wouldn’t make sense unless you knew Saichania really well or have seen the tree for yourself.

Now the others are all jealous and want to make something spectacular too.

I've also added a fourth MC to the list, Mecha. Unlike the rest of the gang, Mecha is not a sentient being. It's a symbiotic mechanical suit. (my avatar is of it's helmet)

Wow that all sounds really cool! . Saichania sounds very clever and mystical. Your mind world sounds very beautiful from what I have read. Im jealous!! My mind world is ok its just Im at this point where I cant put my castle anywhere because it never looks right neutral And I always start on a cliff when I get to it and it takes me forever to climb down.

Talon- Serpentus is so awesome! wow He seems so life like I was surprised he didnt jump out of the computer! What colours is he and what kind of personality does he have?

^^~ Very cool! It's all very intricate... I love it-- Saichania has made such a wonderful lifeform, I really like the decription of it-- you're very good!
But the others shouldn't be jealous D: I'm sure their additions were just fine!

Right?

:3 Good job Sai! You've done well...

And Mecha, you've made so much progress~ I'm so proud XD~

It sounds like the new Mecha charry will be interesting...

Good job!

I can definitely agree! Many people who post here make spectacular things... It's amazing!
But I'm sure you'll fix your castle problem soon enough ^^~

Thanks very much! I'm not very set on Serp's colourations-- though he has alot of earthy reds when I imagine him ^^~ Beiges and reds and browns...
He is pretty much just a cute snake right now XD
Occasionally sits up and stares-- or sleeps... Or slides around, or stares into space XD
He's actually quite a bit like Fang-- one of my other lil pets... Similar colourations, and drawing-cycle... their personalities are becoming similar too!

-Update-

Havent been trying CALD of late though I have been using my characters help when attempting WILD.
Alice is gone..... cry
I woke up this morning and saw Sage sitting on my bed and I asked where Alice was. He told me she was gone.
I got such a shock because I didnt expect her to leave that soon and without saying goodbye. I kinda just sat there not really believing it but after I mind searched i realised she was nowhere to be found. I never thought it would really happen but I guess I was wrong. My biggest regret is we didnt get to say good bye but then maybe it was easier not to sigh
Its weird theres like this empty space inside of me.

On another note though I have been seeing a black panther lately who came to me in dream months ago and eased some type of fear in my dream by speaking to me. Tonight me and Sage are going to use our combined energy to draw her to Arveya. The castle problem was fixed and i can just feel that more mind characters shall emerge in my created world. Yet i dont know how Arveya could ever be the same without Alice. But I know that with her twin sister she will find complete happiness.

Thats all for now guys.

Astraea: My condolences on Alice's departure, I know what you mean by an empty spot inside you. sadblauw

A while ago all my MC's just disappeared for a day and a half. I couldn't feel them at all, and after the first day I started to get worried that they might be gone permanently. Luckily they're all back now, but none of us knows just what happened, or if it might happen again in the future. help!

Awww... I feel your pain-- It's admirable you're handling it so well ^^.
I'm glad you're starting to move on-- you seem to have quite the plan running! You can continue-- and I can see you obviously have a good base...Congrajulations on fixing the castle problem-- And obviously, we'd love updates about any new aditions to the gang ^^~ :D

I see a good future for you! :D You're handling well-- you and Sage will get far :3~
Good luck, but you won't seem to need it~ :3

Ahh, we all go through little periods of that. A friend of mine had a serious one for a few weeks-- and because of her very integrated lifestyle with their existance, it was definately traumatizing.
Ah well-- for me, having a grip on a certain level of control over just base things ( just how violent is too violent, never allowing any harm to come to me or others from my character's presences, and making sure I always have the ability to stop my characters O-o;) at least lets me keep a good grip on their existances...
Fading has happened to one character of mine-- Kazurai, he dissapeared for awhile, but came back. Some characters, for me, are more defined and solid than others...

Ah well--
The important thing is they're there in the end when we want them to be. :3~

Oh. Another character came to me Tuesday. Not from a dream, though. She just... came. And, that's usually how my most memorable characters occur. I'm just a little too embarassed right now to talk about her, though.

I will... sometime, I guess.
