Just a few updates. I've figured out how I'm going to write out this damn thing. The chapters are going to be broken up into parts since many chapters will be long and extend for some time. Not only that but, I have several character clusters that I will be changing focuses on constantly along with having events happen at the same time with another.
This will help break up tensions and keep things in check while giving readers an understanding of ripple effects. Basically, one group influences the other groups even though, while they may not be near each other or even in the same 'areas'; their
Each 'part' is going to be focused on specific characters at a given time. There is going to be a lot of cross referencing between the groups and the parts. So paying attention details are going to be critical if readers seek to know what the hell is going on or why something is happening.
As for how many parts each section will have, is hard to say. In other words, I write what I write. While I do have an outline of plots, arcs and climaxes, I still have no idea how long each one will be. It all depends on the flow.
For my own sake and to keep dA from going, "YOU HAVE A DEVIATION TITLED DIS ALREADY!"
, I'm labeling the written form as N.FM
[Novel Forsaken Memories]
while the comics will be C.FM [Comic Forsaken memories]
to keep them separated. Each one will have a link to the other.
Reminder: Forsaken Memories will not
be the focus of my channel. Sadly, it's just easier to write as I'm still trying to get my own original work to take off. So I will be posting other writing from time to time that have no relation to this.FORSAKEN MEMORIES IS JUST FOR THE FUCK OF IT. Nothing
of it will ever be canon due to so many issues and ties it has. I'm not joking. I'm surprised we were able to pull it off. It was giving me something to write about for fun while I work on trying to get my shit in gear.
Now a few things I need to clarify before I begin to upload pages:
IMPORTANT HEADS UP!!!!
A few things I need to make sure is clear and understood by everyone:
THE STORY HAS NO RELATION TO ANYTHING KIRBY OR ITS DAMN FRANCHISE OR FANDOM!
Nothing and I mean nothing, in the story is related to anything in that damn franchise and fandom. The only reason why you would even see it in groups that deal with the damn thing is because of the sprites. There's nothing I can do about the sprites sadly.
They're simply a means to an end.
By this statement, I will come forward and state I will be extremely annoyed, bordering insulted . . . if I see it faved into collections dealing with damn kirby. Sadly, as much as this will . . . annoy the ever living hell out of me . . . I can't control how society connects shit.
So, don't expect me to be very . . . "kind" if my work even becomes associated with that shit. I don't hate the games . . . but I no longer want to be associated with it anymore with my work.
I am breaking away from it and moving onto more original work.
If I could draw better than what I do, I would draw the comics but since I can't, I'm using the sprites to create the comics. I still like working with the sprites, just now what they're associated with.
The written story will be written with characters that look human and some that will be anthropomorphic based.
THERE WILL BE SPOILERS!!!!
There is nothing I can do about this. The pages will be fully written out and kept in their 'cluster'. I'm still working on the finer details of how I want things to go alas however, things are easier to figure out when you're writing it than sitting staring at it.
If you don't want to have the comics ruined . . .
DON'T READ THE WRITTEN VERSION.
Stupid simple solution.
THE HORROR THEMES STILL APPLY!!!!
I will become very detailed with discritpions . . . A little more so than I can in the comics.
So, if it has a block on it and you see those wonderful flashing
warning signs . . . I don't even want to fucking hear it.
I've given out more than what I should for warnings. Don't like it?
Will I still be working on the comics? YES!
However, as I mentioned in several journals
, it's going to take me longer due to needing sprite sheets and one in particular, needs to be completely custom made. That in itself, we're looking at possibly of 3-5 months depending on Masked-Gamer
availability and not to mention, my own sheets I need to fix and put together. Will the story differ from the comics?
Yes and no.
The story is literally the comics but in a written and slightly more detailed form. The story is the script. This is actually far more helpful because I can write out scenes better and discuss them with Masked-Gamer
about parts and plan ahead.
Naturally, the two variations are going to be different from each other both from the obvious and with details. Even though they're both essentially the same thing. The way I see it as a coin. It's still a coin but with two different sides.
So, due to this, I don't even want to see a damn comment stating along the lines or close to: "But the story goes like this"
, or "The comics had this."
No fucking shit the story had this and the comics had that. They're two different mediums of portraying a story. Why movies based off books tend to be different. There is only so much one medium can show and tell. But put it together, and you get a picture regardless of how it's shown or told. How often will pages be posted?
No clue. I've got like . . . too many projects on my mind I'm doing at once. Not to mention work and what little of a life I dare claim. The pages I can work on at work after lockdown and with the network back in the control rooms, I can post pages from work. But even then, it will still take time.
I will be listing how many pages each section has as well to help you get a feel of what you're reading. Not sure if I want to put it in the title or in the comment section. I'll toy around with it.
Anyhow, I think that's honestly it. I'm not sure what else I can spell out that I haven't already covered. Enjoy my walls of text!
