The commission process for teenage Sherry's character picture is going swimmingly. We've settled on a sketch and it's simply lovely. Now to the next step of actually making a picture out of it.

*inhaling* it was that manga image for sherry that gave ma an impression that she's an Asian character, I pictured her to be wearing kimono like Nezuko(without pink eyes) in the future with Hugo, but now thanks to you that dream is forever lost in the void, 

ForestDweller · Author · 3 hours ago

Interesting. I don't see any Asian in her myself.

And I don't have a plan to suddenly drop Japanese culture in a Western fantasy world. I hated it at Necromance so I don't think I'm going to do it here.

I mean they can exist away from the main continent like the Akavirian continent in Elder scrolls, That is incase if you needed them to exist all of a sudden after reading something that inspires you to do as such,

Click to expand...

you know you did described her with straight black hair right? that's pretty synonymous with the traditional asian beauty... the freckles (which is primary an irish thing) aside.

Jesus Christ, a story that started like two months ago just passed this story in views. clear.png

What story was it?

ForestDweller · Author · Jan 22, 2021

The trending Sword Saint

ForestDweller · Author · Jan 21, 2021

An idea for future Hugo despair. Make Erika choose an orc over him. Hugo will have to content with Erika getting ravaged by an orc just like in his doujins. clear.png

A gentleman orc like the MC of that orc manga written by the same guy who wrote MT.

Hugo will feel like a failure for not being there when she needs him. More punishment for his act of cowardice. clear.png

ForestDweller · Author · Jan 21, 2021

The orc, of course, takes great joy in watching her grow to be a young lady with big boobs, just like her mother. clear.png

loshi1505 · Jan 21, 2021

but then erika won't go on a anti-magic golem army rampage! nor conquer the continent with air ships!

ScholarOccultCauldron · Jan 21, 2021

One question, ForestDweller. Will this story just become despair porn, or will Hugo move forwards and grow into the character originally envisioned? Isekai parents dying is a common trope, but NTR, more death, and an empty broken MC would take this into a dark Isekai territory that abuses the characters. It has been a great story so far, but I wanna know it's going to become despair porn instead of the story of a failure growing beyond his failures and becoming the person he wanted to be.

loshi1505 · Jan 20, 2021

geez watching censored eps of redo of the healer is worthless, nearly half the ep is censored in ep 2.

ForestDweller · Author · Jan 20, 2021

Wow, the next chapter is still only at 2.5k words. I thought it would already be in the 3k range.

Well writing Felicia backstory now kinda redundant because ww just finish her arc and she already get characters development, you should write her backstory in the middle of the arc right before the climax like One Piece did. 

ForestDweller · Author · Jan 21, 2021

Ha, that's my original plan until @loshi1505 convinced me to change it.

loshi1505 · Jan 21, 2021

i gave another suggestion besides that...

also suggested that if there wasn't a flash back during the climax, it could be better for it to be in conversation format with hugo... >_>

ForestDweller · Author · Jan 21, 2021

Unfortunately, conversation form won't cover all the things I want to write in the flashback since Felicia will naturally summarize things.

ForestDweller · Author · Jan 20, 2021

Imagine having an MC who saved a nearly raped girl, only to rape her himself.

I've heard of it.

blackrockshooter · Jan 20, 2021

I've started watching it. So far its good.

ForestDweller · Author · Jan 20, 2021

Okay.

loshi1505 · Jan 20, 2021

> Might just make a character like that to NTR Hugo.

please make it some random girl and not main cast in this case.

Spoiler

like fire arrow girls for example.

ForestDweller · Author · Jan 19, 2021

Damn, I actually got a good advice. Maybe putting Felicia so early in wasn't a good move since it's too much for the readers to accept Hugo being troubled by another big thing before he can make his peace with the Magocracy.

ForestDweller · Author · Jan 19, 2021

I originally planned to have the whole arc happen after he reunites with Sherry.

But then again, this tragedy won't happen if he's with her. Maybe he'll still have his PTSD but Sherry will be there to help him out.

ForestDweller · Author · Jan 19, 2021

On the other hand, it could mean he'll overcome that PTSD earlier since 

Spoiler

he'll need to to face the opponent he has to win against to get to Sherry.

[collapse]
ForestDweller · Author · Jan 19, 2021

Story popularity wise, Hugo overcoming his weakness earlier is better, but story-wise, it's more meaningful for him to do it later, after he stumbles not just once, but twice.

And having Felicia earlier is better for her character development as well.

ForestDweller · Author · Jan 19, 2021

Got an advice to show promise of Hugo growing as a person. I'm not sure how to do more of that, without just making him unrealistically brave, ignoring all the trauma he has suffered.

Ha, it's not like I can just go change all I have written 100 chapters ago. clear.pngclear.png

ForestDweller · Author · Jan 19, 2021

It's been six days since I last updated, huh? Still no real desire to write.

I want to commission a picture for Sherry, but the guy isn't responding to my PM.

ForestDweller · Author · Jan 19, 2021

Why should I? I already read that part a lot of times.

loshi1505 · Jan 19, 2021

good question, i would think to see the pacing the anime has as opposed to it's WN/LN, or manga format. videos tend to have a little extra to that medium that's often lost in the other formats.

however the bigger question is why not? the reasoning you've had previously is gone now. so why not waste some time on something enjoyable?

ForestDweller · Author · Jan 19, 2021

I don't think I'd enjoy it to be honest. 

loshi1505 · Jan 19, 2021

that's quite the assumption. is there a basis for it? like something you noticed in the previews? because so far i think it's quite well done. and i see little reason why the quality would drop seeing how far the LN has been published. unless there's budget issues. the VA's sound fine, the animation quality is good. the only concern i can think you might have is filler, but that again seems very unlikely due to where the LN is at.

ForestDweller · Author · Jan 19, 2021

*sigh* another one star review clear.png

loshi1505 · Jan 19, 2021

pffft, most ironic part of the 1star reviews, they're all based on 'the novel isn't my taste'. which in non-edgy teen speak would mean anywhere from 2star to 4star reviews normally.

kids these days i swear. *insert get off my lawn meme here*

ForestDweller · Author · Jan 19, 2021

Well, it's enough to kill my desire to write. At least for this story, since I just updated a long abandoned fanfic of mine thanks to a comment popping up out of nowhere, telling me I should update.

ForestDweller · Author · Jan 19, 2021

That's a useful review as proof that people would really rather have the usual isekai MC over whatever Hugo is.

ForestDweller · Author · Jan 19, 2021

It's also an example how one star reviews can dissuade people from reading your story.

ForestDweller · Author · Jan 18, 2021

Kinda want to have a Bakarina-like character in the story. Or at the very least, just her appearance. clear.png

FailerQt · Jan 18, 2021

She is from that villainess show right? Haven't watched that yet.

ForestDweller · Author · Jan 17, 2021

Finished OMORI. Wow, just, wow. clear.png

Spoiler

Totally won't affect my writing for Marina in the future. Nope.

I'm just glad I got to play it before I got spoiled.

What's OMORI?

Videogame

Oh.

I now have a Ko-Fi page.

I don't have anything to offer for your money though.  clear.pngOnly made it to raise funds for more artwork commissions.

ForestDweller · Author · Jan 15, 2021

@WanderingSwordNuub speaks about how he wants harem members to be well-developed.

But I can just write a story where it's a VRMMO and it's literal NPCs who fell in love with him like Overlord. Literally in their programming.

Or I could go the slave route instead, with the MC using slave spells. That's valid if the story is about a villainous hero, which is a popular trope in the isekai genre, mind you.

Loshi pretty sure he used to live in modern society,Fiora can't color his views if his past life did

Khaos321999 · Jan 15, 2021

This is unrelated but, Will there be any graphical map of the world?, not detailed, just to see the world, so even a MS paint would do,

loshi1505 · Jan 15, 2021

sure, if he was described as having a strong opinion in the first place... but he wasn't. therefor he's operating off the things he sees with his own eyes, and hears though others experiences. fiora most certainly colored his view of the matter, regardless of it being a lighter shade then fiora's pitch black dark.

ForestDweller · Author · Jan 15, 2021

@Khaos321999

It's nowhere near complete since I'm making it as the story goes along. If you still want to look at it, then I can PM it to you.

ForestDweller · Author · Jan 15, 2021

I wonder how popular Redo of A Healer would get. That's another edgy isekai fantasy, but this time, it's filled with sex and torture.

Already see comments saying how they're looking forward to the outrage from the SJWs.

hmm, maybe it's a western audience issue then?clear.png

ForestDweller · Author · Jan 16, 2021

Most western isekai fans don't even care about any OEL isekai, with the swathe of translated Japanese isekai out there.

Though I say that, but I saw someone recommending one of the more popular stories on the site just the other day...

ForestDweller · Author · Jan 16, 2021

I only ever get recommended by one person outside here, and that person no longer reads this story. Even though he used to say how he believed my story should be much more popular... clear.png
