  • Opinions please <3

    OOC:
    So.... I’ve stopped doing good story posts I feel, and that’s because I really dont feel very connected with Wilder. I think he’s a cool character, however he just doesn’t feel right. I’m very picky about what characters I use, especially when I know I’ll be using them for a long time.

    As mentioned, Marquis and the characters I used to use are personal characters of mine, and I’ve been using them for professional writing. However... I’m really attached to them. I wanna incorporate them into this setting, but I’m trying to think through it a little further to see if it’s the right choice.

    I wanna know if anyone has any thoughts on if I should try working with Wilder more and trying to get a better connection or people miss the old boys and I should bring them back, but in this story.

    (Storylines will change, EYEC is completely kaput now, but I don’t want to think more about plans with Mark until I decide whether he’s making a comeback or not



  • I am new here but I admit Marquis was a good character, he made me laugh sometimes



  • I loved Kiwi more, too.



  • @Wilder-M-Bernardi I miss Marquis, Walt, and them



  • i enjoy reading your stories and getting to know your characters. No matter if it's Wilder, Marquis or anyone else. I personally like(d) all of them.
    However you should do what makes you happy and what brings you joy. So if you feel like you're more attached to Marquis and the Crew and want to continue their story in this setting, go ahead!



  • I say do what makes you happy, and do what you enjoy doing. Why not incorporate all of them, and use them as and when you feel inspired to do so?



  • I think it's natural to feel more connected to these characters you've had for years as opposed to Wilder, whom you've only newly created (I assume?) Characters- to me, at least!- are just like real people: the more time you spend with them, the better you know them, get along with them, feel more at ease around them. You know your old characters- what drives them, what they struggle with, what makes them tick; in short, why they're interesting- because you've 'spent time with them' by writing them frequently and diversely. So I think if you want to try to find that with Wilder, you should try sticking at it. :slight_smile: Do more with him! Write him into scenarios that challenge him and see how he reacts. It'll help you figure him out (and will probably bring you pleasure, because making characters unhappy is SO much fun to write I mean, it's okay, I guess.)

    It's still worth thinking on bringing Marquis & Co. in, however! Maybe they can visit in some context? Be business affiliates, or riding lesson clients, or those really irritating people living on the next block over who only visit on weekends and throw ragers that create an unspeakable racket. You could have fun with that! :grinning:

    Either way, I hope you'll keep the blog style? It's unique and personal and just a breath of fresh air. :seedling:


  • Competition Committee

    Totally agree you should do what makes you happy story-wise. I really like anything you write, it's nice how you are able to get into character for every post, makes for great storytelling. On that note, if you think you need to bring your other characters back to continue to do so then go for it!



  • I agree, just do what you really want to do. We all do this for fun, so just go with your heart.



  • Thank you everyone for helping me out with this! It was good to hear what everyone thought so I could really try and weigh my options. I have decided that I'm going to be switching back to a storyline with Mark and Burt. It will probably be a little while till I get it up since I would like to be able to change my name again (so so sorry to the person in charge of name changing :sweat_smile: ) but I'm currently entered in a show that I believe is going to take a little while before results are out and I'd like to wait till that's over :smiley_cat:

    I'll be selling a couple story-made horses, (not my big eared boys though, I want those :laughing: ) but otherwise, I'll be taking my time to set this story up, and I want to try something new when it comes to managing my updates, while still keeping my usual style of writing since everyone seems to really enjoy it! (and thank you!!)

    So, no updates for a little while, (which "in a little while" in Marquis term is probably a few days since I run on a different clock it seems.) So i'll be working on planning out this whole new debacle ,and I get to use my own characters so I'm excited haha!

    also @Ariadne-Waters that's exactly how I see character creation as well, and although I didn't go with your advice (eek sorry) I thought you posed a really good point, and I think I'll try doing that with still incorporating Wilder and Oaklyn. Also I may just have to use "Marquis & Co" Because I absolutely love that

    I can't reply to everyone's comment, but I really appreciate all of them!! Thank you again! I'll just go back to trying to comment on everyone else's fantastic blogs when I can haha! <3 <3



  • I'm so behind :sweat: I kept meaning to come back and comment and then would always get distracted! Anyways,

    Gatsby turned out gorgeous, and I adore his name. He definitely embodies Gatsby's showy and flashy self. His head shape is beautifully refined and so nice. Revvy is also so handsome!

    As for the Wilder question, I am sad to see him go. I wonder if you could incorporate him into the story as one of your riders? Maybe Marquis buys out RWA? :thinking: I'm very interested to see where you will go with this! :heart:



  • @Clementine-Laake Wilder will still be around! I already have the blog post set up (which I'll be posting like- right now since I just realised my name has been changed back) I don't wanna say too much, but Wilder's parents are the owners of RWA, he'll still be a character in the story, I feel like I would have much more fun if I wrote from a POV that I'm more attached too
