It has a lot of negative stuff attached to it as far as a lot of tge verse is concerned. and yeah...titles like that seem a sure way to fall into shitty stereotyping, especially when you have a female character.whos only role is to be the female character

Ya. I see your point. I was thinking their personalities determine their titles, not the other way around.

Hmm. I'l think about a new title.

I weep for Core Theory. I really do.

As for the "everyone gets a stereotype" thing, I worry about that. It seems like a great way to get a lot of bad press, so to speak. I guess basically what I mean is female character good, female character whose character is "she's a girl" bad.

Cougar is right. Attatching these labels to your proxies isn't a great idea. However, I like the concept of the vlog being told from a proxy point of view, and Slendy being known as the "Story Teller" is something unique and pretty awesome IMHO.

A few thoughts.

Minion Cam: What if the Proxies and maybe the Nightlanders could record video? Then, the video would be posted on the channel by the minions. Give both sides of something.

Titles: what if the titles were to describe fighting style? We can't fight Slender Man, but, we sure can fight other Proxies.

New name: The Huntress?

Point-responses:

Minion-cam: Excellent idea (also giving me an idea for a parody video which I want to record now), basically the "totheark" model of channel. Honestly, I'd thought this went without saying.

Titles: Titles don't really speak to me. I don't see why they're necessary (and it was one of my major, major problems with Core Theory as a whole) and the more you limit someone to a certain niche instead of letting the character develop itself, the more you pigeonhole your writing.

The new name is all right, but I would just go ahead and caution you to stay away from gendered language as a whole. (Unless you're working in German, in which case you're essentially fucked on this score.)

Name: Ya. I see how that could be bad. But, it is no longer relevant.

titles for "fighting style"?

This sounds like it could devolve into anime-combat at any moment. I would avoid that shit xD

What, you mean like the Slenderblogverse?

I'm sure a couple people jumped off a couple buildings a couple times. And we had a guy with a sword. Several, actually. And that's not even getting into the proxies...

All right, all right, all right. I don't want anything in a video that I'm not completely willing to do myself.

This is going to be in conjunction with the Vlog. The Storyteller will be recounting the Vlog in story form in his own way. So, the Daniel's Vlog and The Storytellers Blog will be parallel.

Although this sounds OK, I don't think you fully understand the amount of effort you are undertaking. 2 blogs that run parallel with a vlog may seem like something that mightn't take too much time out of your life, but you'd be surprised. At 13 you should be enjoying life instead of being huddled over a computer 24/7. There's the health concerns and stuff, but once you hit 14/15 on to college and then uni, your life is dominated by exams, coursework and deep anxiety about your increasingly high piles of the aforementioned things. It's good to have a hobby, but this is going to take a lot out of you.

It's only one blog. And, besides, I'm a writer. This is what I do. I do enjoy life. I get good grades. I'm a wrestler. I'm in the chorus. And, I still have quite a bit of time to spare. I think I can take a semi-regular Blog and a Vlog.

If you can do it, do it. I'm not trying to scare you away from it, you've got a good concept and I think it will work. I just wanted to give you a heads up.

Due to my stupidity, the blog has been recreated here: http://thestorybooktm.blogspot.com/

Also: Would anyone be willing to make a picture for me? Specifically, a picture of a black suit, and a face distorted by a big blur and static.

If it isn't possible to do it yourself, you shouldn't be doing it at all.

My request stands.

Started messing around in Gimp with a stock photo of a man in a suit. Here's what I got out of it.



I no longer need that pic. Turns out, I took The Fallen's suggestion after all. Very Happy
