so I'm doing 4 homeworks at the same time and i just wanted to say

yesterday my ela teacher hosted a carnival and we all had our own booths to run
and the booth next to mine invited me to submit the end of an incomplete story they had for a contest to win 20 bucks and i found out she's been freaking out about who to give the prize to because she loves the stories two of the people submitted and i found out I'm one of the two??? now I'm really mad because the other one is her best friend and i feel like i should have written more >:l

i think she's going to announce the winners tmrw so um
i hope i win
but i highly doubt it
because
again
the other girl is her best friend
and like 972381972398 years older than i am
so
*uhM*
wish me lucc

edit:
sO bAsIcAlLy the story is about some girl who's getting ready to sell all of her deceased father's clothes and she gets a phone call and it ends there
and i wrote that the anonymous caller who had a very familiar voice says they found his grave all dug up and his coffin wasn't in there. i also wrote that it was 4 years since that call and the case remained a mystery

Gracithe1andonly 07-29-2019 07:27 PM

omg I'm just shuffling through Eastfield to remind myself how it goes and who's involved when I rEDISCOVER THE DETAIL THAT MY ANGRY MATH BOY, CARLTON, ONCE CARRIED HIS BABY BROTHER FOR THIRTEEN MILES WITHOUT COMPLAINING UNTIL THEY MADE IT SAFELY TO THEIR UNCLE'S HOUSE.


I love that entire family so so much

Gracithe1andonly 11-30-2019 08:11 PM

so yall. I got a newish undertale au that I call auwndbdgisaj (abbreviated "That AU where Nobody Dies but Doctor Gaster is Still a Jerk") in which none of the human children that fall into the underground die, but the Handplates AU still sort of happens-
with the deviations that Gaster is trying to prevent Asgore having to kill his own kids-
and that when sans pushes him Chara is there to catch him-
and that after that everybody loves papyrus but only Chara likes Sans since she really understands him and what he's going thru-
and that eventually frisk falls and things go real south real fast-
but the main reason I love this au is because this version of Chara is SO GOOD and Sans and her are bffflllssss

(walking Frisk towards New Home)
Chara: I know youuuu… I walked with you once upon a dream... I know youuuu...the gleam in your eyes is so familiar a gleam...comedian, come on
Sans: (eyerolls) and I know it's true that visions are seldom what they seem...
Frisk: (rudely interrupts) are you two a couple
Chara: (three seconds of does not compute)
Sans: (on the floor, cracking up)
Chara: you're laughing too much
Sans: rofl
Chara: stop
Sans: (panting, wipes tears from eyes) No, no, me...and Chara? No lol
Chara: You better be sure. I mean, I love him, but...not that way!
Sans: Ye, I mean, I chara about you a lot tho
Chara: ….…..
Sans: : D
Chara: Don't lose your sans-e of self, you're getting rly awkward now
Sans: pfft nice one

katchyboo 12-02-2019 03:29 PM

...maybe i should just make an Undertale AU where all it is is NOBODY F*CKING DIED

...what should i name the six human souls...

Justice is Jesse (male)
that I know...
Kindness could be Kylie?
and Integrity could be Ingrid?
Paisley for Patience
Percy for Perseverance
and ummm
we've still got Bravery
BRANDON

...should I include Gaster...?
don't know if he actually died...

Gracithe1andonly 12-06-2019 06:43 PM

anything anybody writes about gaster is speculation, but the speculation gaster I assume is true is Zarla's Handplates gaster
this isn't to say you shouldn't write about gaster

whatever happened to him, he was here and now is not, which seems sad unless he was totally evil...

please, speculate!

My version of the six kids' names (which you can use but certainly don't have to):

Patience- Emi (Emediong Ime)
Bravery-Basil Hardy
Kindness-Ellis Greene
Justice-Justin Nima
Perseverance-Fahim Adnan
Integrity- Indy (Indira Darnell)

I have loads of headcanons about their appearances, do you have thoughts?

HannahChen2009 12-09-2019 09:08 AM

ugh all I can manage to write now is rambles and romantic stuff about my ocs (well technically they're mine and ena's; ena came up with one of them and I came up with the other and they're the physical embodiment of teenage angst it's AMAZING) but I really want to write, and at the same time I can't be motivated to do anything if anyone gets what I'm saying.

Anyways just so that I can finally get something down on paper ("paper", but whatever you know the term) I'm gonna ramble on about my characters again. No spoilers really, since I don't even know if I'm going with my current plot (I'm always constantly changing it), but the one constant in my story are these two adorable lovebirds.

So Quinn and Toshiyuki are assassins, and they're almost equally matched in every way except for magic/sorcery, which scored Quinn the equivalent of a kinda 'captain' position among the assassins, while Toshiyuki is only the vice captain.
Tosh is kinda bitter at nature and doesn't really have any friends among the assassin group; he's the closest to Quinn because they have to work closely on missions, but he's overall more of an outlier and causes Quinn quite a bit of trouble, whether intentional or not. He kinda has a inferiority complex I think, and compares himself to Quinn all the time, even though he isn't actually worse than she is and they can be said to be equals.
Quinn plays more by the rules and keeps up a friendly facade well enough with her subordinates- she doesn't smile much around them, but is generally kind. However, her subordinates are mostly older than she is. Her mother died early on and her father works for the court/power, so she started her training earlier than others normally would, and was pretty gifted in fighting and whatnot, which made her advance quickly, drawing resentment from classmates that turned out to be her subordinates, so there's this whole hostile vibe going on, and as a result she's pretty lonely most of the time.

Tosh and Quinn have this sort of tentative relationship? Like Quinn wants to be his friend, except she's too proud to admit that, and also because Toshiyuki will gives her enough of a hard time that she doesn't want to open up to him and risk anything at the same time. Tosh has been hurt by friends before and realizes that he's not as good as any of them, so he doesn't really want to get hurt again, and also because of his pride.
anyway i gotta go bc my brother wants to use my cpu lmao so i'll talk abt it later probs.

katchyboo 12-09-2019 01:40 PM

to Graci:

I actually drew a fanart about it
https://www.kidpub.com/forum3/pictur...pictureid=7822

This is it, lol
I draw a lot of fanarts

katchyboo 12-09-2019 03:35 PM

I'm gonna call the AU the Vitae AU (from the Latin word for life). I've started on a comic about it, yeet

court intrigue politics and teen angst also the only heterosexual ship with rights

Sure would love to write. Wish I had the gODDAMN TIME

katchyboo 12-24-2019 11:10 AM

To Graci:

Ooh, here's an idea. The soul colors, what if the characters who use that color attacks/soul mode killed that soul trait?

katchyboo 12-24-2019 11:16 AM

Like Undyne would have killed Kindness, Mettaton killed Justice, etc.

D: what a thought

I suppose Muffet killed Perseverance and Sans killed Integrity (because Papyrus, bless his nonexistent heart, would NEVER)

But it makes sense! Kindness doesn't come easily to Undyne, even though she loves people. She's rough. Mettaton unjustly leaves Napstablook in the dust and is threatening to do the same to Alphys. I don't know what's going on with Muffet, but Sans is a liar liar pants on fire canonically (or at least the keeper of the biggest secrets in the Underground). If they did kill those human children, maybe in doing so they murdered a little bit of the virtue in themselves.

(in my head, it's always been Asgore who killed the kids. if others were involved, they only captured them then sent them to him. his, therefore, is the highest lv in the underground barring war veterans)

Katchy, have you found my undertale fanfic yet?? I sort of want to link you, would you be interested? (I found Heartstrings btw. I find those kinds of au a bit...confusing...but interesting things can be done with them. I was very proud of myself for recognizing all the characters you used! Will go back and read it thoroughly later when I don't have applications hanging over my head.)

katchyboo 12-28-2019 08:19 AM

I'd like to read your fanfic!
Also, Sans wouldn't have made the promise to Toriel at the time Integrity came through, would he? And I think Asgore would have killed Bravery, he uses orange attacks.
Papyrus wouldn't... on purpose. From Patience's items (Toy Knife and White Ribbon), it seems like they might've been pretty young. And Papyrus could totally accidentally kill them, he's pretty strong. I think he might actually have higher ATK than Undyne, which is... (I don't want him to have done it though... Sans also uses blue attacks?)
And I think in True Pacifist, Mettaton hires Blooky as his sound assistant, which I think is adorable lol

Gracithe1andonly 12-28-2019 04:47 PM

No-- Sans wouldn't have made the promise. That makes sense. Also, Papyrus is definitely that strong. By the time we meet him in the game, he has enough control of himself to stop fighting you when you're at 1 hp. He might have gained that control after accidentally killing Patience. (But I don't think so. Papyrus is considerate enough that if he had accidentally killed Patience, he probably wouldn't be eager to fight a human again.)

YES BLOOKY WOULD BE THE BEST SOUND ASSISTANT.

Here's the story: https://www.kidpub.com/book-page-or-...ion-2955161771

It's an undertale prequel (read: me getting veerryyy curious about why Sans is so depressed yet would stand up to you anyway, also about the vague hints Flowey drops about what happened before you fell)

I think where this theory breaks down is that more than one character can use the same kind of attack, and one character uses more than one kind. If I remember correctly, Asgore can do both orange and blue. So can Papyrus??? (It's been a long time since I've played oof.)

katchyboo 12-29-2019 05:05 AM

Papyrus can't use orange attacks as far as I know. (I love how we're just completely nerding out on Undertale lol) Yeah, you're right about that. Maybe the monsters learnt the attacks/soul modes from the humans, and taught them to other monsters? Oh, and Undyne does say that Papyrus is "just too innocent and nice". So yeah, maybe Sans isn't as lazy as we thought...?

Idk, I think Sans is just as lazy as he looks in the game. But I think he hasn't always been that way.

Just looked at Papyrus's fight, you seem to be right

katchyboo 01-03-2020 12:02 PM

In one of the neutral endings, if you've killed some people but not Papyrus, Sans lies to him and tells him they're on vacation. Maybe, if Papyrus did accidentally kill Patience, Sans told him they were just knocked out or something?

Gracithe1andonly 01-05-2020 11:33 PM

Even with a very naÔve and trusting read of papyrus I don’t know if you could conceal that from him. In the undertale verse it seems very...noticeable...if you kill someone. Like, would his LOVE increase? Would he feel that?

You can kill Papyrus???
.. i see. the game developers had an evil streak.

katchyboo 01-09-2020 06:58 AM

they do that

He might, but it takes more than one EXP to gain LOVE, doesn't it? And at the start of the game, there's not really anything there to indicate you're actually killing them. He might not know what it means. And, also, he's really strong, surely he'd have to have gained LOVE at some point?

Gracithe1andonly 02-06-2020 12:02 AM

Depends if LOVE is the only way to become strong. And though you're right that Papyrus might not understand what it means, I feel like his instincts are good enough that he'd be deterred from fighting a human again

I gave up on Parable again. I looked at all I had to do for school and thought to myself, I need my desk back. So I took all my papers and notebooks and made them into a stack and put them on the floor, knowing this meant I'd have to consciously decide to reactivate my writing brain. could have cried. i want to finish parable while covid is reigning

Gracithe1andonly 04-03-2020 11:05 PM

tfw you made two different characters with the same name in two totally different stories, but because one of them is a total jerk you block the existence of the other one temporarily from your memory and when you try to remember his name later you cant until u look through the character lists ://

their names are both jack, one is a jerk the other is a child who ostensibly hasn't had the opportunity to be a jerk on purpose yet

maybe I need to change the child's name
dang, son, my homeslice, jack paper my boi, you've ruined three (3) boys' lives now and one of them is a minor character from a completely different story, congrats

please email me back lol
I didn't know you were still active on here but if you see this there's a good chance I'm not gonna look back on Kidpub for like 2 months so please email me snow
I finished the 5th draft of Daughter of Light and I've started sending it out to agents (eek) and I would love it, if you have the time, if you would read it. you don't need to feel obligated to, obviously, but if you're interested I'll send it to you.

Syafai 04-24-2020 02:59 AM

ok, yeah. hi.
I don't write as much as I used to.

It's kind of funny how most of what I wrote two years ago, in 2018, which is when I was last active, was about gay 11-year-old detectives and space (aliens, especially were sort of my thing). Yeah, nothing like that anymore.

Now, I for the past few months have been trying to get my keyboard more used to typing for hours on end. I am writing again, just not on here.

I will think about putting a link somewhere to the websites I am extremely active writing on, if anyone is interested. This isn't said with pride, but if I do this, don't be surprised if you're offended by something. I have a pretty big mouth. Confront me for my words, I deserve it.

It will take me a while to think about though, since I made it clear in my signature that I said a lot of edgy shit when I was younger and I do not want to be associated with that anymore. It's just not me. I'm not going to specify on anything, but I may have told lies. I may have offended the people in ways I can't imagine doing again (note: I mean direct, intended offense to a certain community in specific)

I'll update this 'rant' with info on the more juicy stuff I'm writing soon.

edit:

Ok so I've been writing just small unfinished descriptions of made-up scenarios that pop up in my head. I also wrote a character last night and I'm really proud of him lol. That's basically all it is.

Hi, kiddo. Welcome back. Remember me? Do you still go by Sy or Sumayyah?

WHO'S THE CHARACTER YOU WERE WRITING I WANT DETAILS

Thinking a lot about your change and my lack thereof over these years. hmu if you come back to KidPub and want to hear a maudlin rant from an adult whose adulthood is solely legal and has not yet been accepted.

Gracithe1andonly 11-16-2020 11:48 PM

me, writing 13: look at this precious boi, he's so funny and smart an d he deserves the whole world
also me: he killed his twin on impulse and deserves to s u f f e r
