Danko's Flaming Heart

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, Dec. 5, 2020




I couldn't have been older than 11 when I read The Flaming Heart of Danko by Maxim Gorky. And boy, did it cut me with the finest of fine glass. Even now thinking about the short story hurts somewhere deep in my soul.

And yet, I love it so ...

The Struggle for Reality

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, Nov. 21, 2020



What is real, really?

Can we trust our senses that what information they are giving us is objective? There are many thinkers and philosophers that posit we cannot. That as long as the messages get to our brains, it feels real even if it isn't.

The Highway to Hell

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, Nov. 14, 2020



Unless they are an old-timey Disney villain or similarly classic cartoon villain, nobody wants to be evil or bad starting off. Nobody's ambition is to be the villain in their own story. (note I say ‘villain’ and not ‘antagonist’)

Everyone is out to be the hero.

So why aren ...

Character Design Brainstorming: The Witch

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, Sept. 19, 2020



The witch is different than a sorceress, though their affinity with magic and their powers often can overlap: the sorceress carries status; the witch carries fear.

It's not that the sorceress is not potentially feared or the witch is not potentially respected- it's that the core of their ...

Character Design Brainstorming: The Sorceress

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, Sept. 5, 2020



The Sorceress is a powerful figure in fiction, just like the Priest/Priestess/Clergy.

In works where magic or God are present and in direct communion with the characters, both can perform miracles, or otherwise astounding feats beyond normal mortal limits.

In works where there is no magic or God ...

Character Design Brainstorm: The Man (or Woman) of the Cloth

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, Aug. 29, 2020



There are many tropes and many archetypes that we use for character designs. I had a couple of years go (have I really been at it this long!?) done a series of articles on the standard character type/functionality archetypes.
