i don't mind the laser carbines really, I mean I liked the other gadgets the PTC made, ie: hammer of Thor and the magnet aura that supposedly kept him away, I don't roll my eyes at the lasers, it feels acceptable to have that in there.

I also like father paranoia, but I wish I knew more about him

Just two.

1. I wish I had learned more about all the other blogs before I started my blog.

2. I wish I had done more pre-planning.

I've a few :/ All of which are for Stopping Lights

Jumping the gun
Incorporating things at the wrong time
Not tying up loose ends when I have the chance
Video schedule/long pause between videos (then again, videos were never a huge part in SL)
Teaming up with Joker
Not sticking to my plan/script (but I do have fun just winging it now XD)

I'm sure that there are others, but those are the biggest ones...

I could say a lot of things, but right now the biggest is regretting even starting AEQ before my life was stable again.

I've come up with another.

I regret not being meaner to my characters in The Lovers. The Refugees is correcting this Wink

Should have planned more. I figured that since I had the first few posts planned I could improvise. I was sadly mistaken.

TooM could have done with fewer attempts at codes and puzzles. I started it when I didn't have a very clear idea of the mythos, and there are a lot of things that are just aping the way other blogs worked. I regret not forging my own path a little more.

K-OS, seriously, K-OS is the biggest regret I have.
I could've done this so much better, but I skullfucked the pacing and had to do damage control like the world was ending and I still think the character sucks balls.

Otherwise, I dunno.

*looks at some of the other posters in this thread. Decides to withhold harsh words*

I wish I had begun foreshadowing a little bit more, and known what I wanted to do with my character from the beginning. I got thrown into writing when people started reading and treating 'me' as the character. Therefore, I had to rush what I wanted to do with 'her.' Other than that, I'm too early in to tell what else I will regret.

I have an IMF regret; not waiting until I had a reliable computer with which to upload the videos, resulting in my sister holding Entry #5 to ransom before I managed to outsmart her.

All of my blog. All of it.

Specifically the beginning.

It shouldn't have ever existed and it should have ended a month ago. But people started liking it, so I decided to continue.

Now I'm not so sure anymore...

A regret for Little Lion Man; waiting until it had been going for over four months to figure out the plot. I'm actually kind of worried that the upcoming plot will be a shark-jumping moment.

I regret not killing Kay during the time when she was attacked by the Bleeding Tree. It's been a long hard struggle to find a new direction for my blog to go since then and it made a lot of the experience a lot less fun for me then it was before that mini arc.

VH & IT, and FMS

It could have worked well, had I not rushed the plots of VH & IT, and then decided to cross them over with my joke blog FMS.

Totally burnt my brain out and left the plots a tangled, rushed, and messy mess with no decent resolution. It worked out in the end with no pacing. Also it was kinda vague on stuff like Sarah's death. It didn't answer what I wanted it to answer very well.

Also the characters, Nate was too genre savvy to be realistic in the setting, and Sarah was the personification of Unjustified Directed Rage.

Don't know if this is allowed here because I wasn't the blogger in question, but I regret being lazy and not really trying to solve that riddle for a month. I'm sure that hindered you, even if you're too nice to say so.

Oh god, both of my blogs still ongoing and I have about ten bajillion regrets.

23 Seconds, it could have been so much more; but Quetz and I got busy with Return To Slender and suddenly everything collapsed; a whole testing blog filled with fifty posts and we still haven't updated in god knows how long. Fifty characters was TOO MUCH even with the main "core" of characterization and nothing really shines. Collector is too cryptic because his characterization was only done recently, the companion blog doesn't even EXIST yet and if this damn thing ever gets done there will have to be a celebration.

Not only that; the whole thing was supposed to stand on its own. Now it's just ambience for RTS and if anyone ever cares/ pays attention to it it'll be a miracle.

And as for RTS; regrets might not be the best word, but I feel horrible that I'm leaning on my other writers and I'm HEAVILY skirting the line between blessed with suck and refuge in audacity. Spencer is a horrific product of bad writing and the only reason I'm still writing him is because he has a voice of his own.

A tumblr is a horrible place to have delivery requests sent and UHG UHG UHG. Maybe I can meet everyone's expectations eventually...?

Chill, Spazz. Don't beat yourself up over it.


Thage: I really liked the premise of PNSN, if you recall, I considered rewriting it in that 'Compleat Edition' thread that never got off the ground. I think Fizzy's best moment was when Zero got her to admit she wasn't fearless. I will always remember that as being a big moment.

Deleting all of the previous posts from The Lonely Rainbow and only devoting a week of every few months to it instead of continuing with my character's development. I would've had more fun with the blog had I of actually done more developing and committed myself to it more than just "oh hey I feel like doing this for the first time in weeks trolololol".

Going too fast with Blutigen Ivy and rushing the plot more than I had intended. I had originally planned to go at least two Slenderless weeks to develop the character and get a better feel of him, but crossover quickly disease hit my friend and I and we went too fast.

To get this one off my chest:

I regret dangling like three or four threads early on cause I had no idea what I was doing and wanted to give myself something to call back to later, a plot hook. the figurine, the box in general...

Bad konaa. You cannot write a Slenderblog like you write your DnD campaigns.

I regret making my Slenderman into a Slenderwoman. I also regret giving up on it so early.

Though I did leave it open to where I could start back up again...
