Category: Explanations - Tales from the Apartment
 

yes... i exist... i know, i'm probably behind on like... everything at the moment... i'm sorry!  i'm going through one of my "lets procrastinate life" phases... yes. as annoying as heck. don't worry though, it'll pass.

anyway, in recent news, we placed first at out last competition! YAY!! Go D - RAYS!! the freaky part though, is that we one by .01 points. seriously. OMIGOSH CLOE IS ADORABLE!!!! sorry... just thought i should say that.... we have our next competition this weekend in Atlanta. yaaaaaay. big city traffic.

i also updated the sketchbook! so there's a site-related update!

and seriously people, don't worry, this whole thing WILL pass!!

it doesn't help that i've been getting depressed over Tsubasa a ton lately...

Tsubasa: Reseviour Chronicles is a manga that me and my sister read religiously. I LOVE it. the only problem though, is that the past four volumes have all been epic and seriously depressing for my favourite character. the series is AMAZING though!! it's just that my fav character has a huge "Kill me!" sign nailed to his forehead. you can ask Livi or Ninja. i've been randomly getting depressed over it for the past month or so.

anyway, that's all for now!

-D

 

Durithyll: yo! i just felt like posting a random blog because i CAN.Yay! Plus i haven't formally introduced you guys to the Residents yet!

Daiyori: (poofs in) great. now was this really necessary? EVERYONE knows who we are.

Jacob: (poofs in) yay! i'm the pretty boy, and he's the stingy, antisocial mooch!

Daiyori: at least i'm not whipped by my girlfriend.

Roake: (poofs in) (cuffs Daiyori upside the head)

Daiyori: ow! what is it with you and this sudden obsession with smacking people!?

Roake: Would you like to go back to the original?

~~ZAPP!~~

(Daiyori is now a smoldering pile of ashes)

Roake: (looks at Durithyll) was that really necessary?

Durithyll: not really. but do you really expect me to NOT zapp Daiyori in my FIRST blog entry? it's practically a tradition!

Roake: (shakes head) sigh...

Komasu: (poofs in) wha?

Durithyll: hey komasu! i'm just throwing everyone into this first blog entry for the sake of doing it!

Komasu: (looks around) where's Daiyori-- oh. (notices the ashes) why do you zapp him anyway?

Durithyll: Because! he's jerk! Whenever he insults me--

Jacob: which is alot.

Durithyll: --i zapp him!

Komasu: oh... so when are you going to unzapp him?

Durithyll: fine...

Daiyori: (is now unzapped) oi! i hadn't even said anything yet!

Durithyll: but you would have!

Daiyori: So!?

Durithyll: so i was just going to go ahead and zapp you!

Daiyori: what?! that's not fair! that's the stupi--

Roake: (clamps Daiyori's jaws shut) for the sake of your well-being, you need to stop spazzing.

Daiyori: !!!

Durithyll: anyway, (turns to the reader) while Roake is taking care of that... hi! i'm Durithyll! i'm 22, and currently a starving artist! This is Roake (points to Roake)

Roake: (waves with one hand, while using the other to keep Daiyori from getting himself zapped)

Durithyll: he's a fox and a crazy awesome painter and actually does that for a living. He's usually Daiyori's voice of conscience--

Jacob: And is Mr. Mom around here.

Roake: Why are you obsessed with calling me that?

Jacob: because it's hilarious! Durithyll's the one who started all this mess, so you think SHE'D be a little more helpful around the Apartment! but no! she can't even turn on the dryer!

Durithyll: Hey! that dryer is just demented!

Jacob: riiiiiight.

Daiyori: (spazzing even more under Roake's restraints due to the fact that Jacob wasn't zapped for insulting Durithyll, but HE was zapped IN ADVANCE)

Durithyll: whatever! you are such a-- hey. where's Komasu? (looks around. Komasu is no where to be seen in the main room of the Apartment)

Durithyll: (takes a deep breath) KOMASU! Get back here!!

(the closet door slowly creaks open. Komasu tentatively peeks her head out)

Komasu: y-yes?

Durithyll: (puts her hands on hips and taps her foot angrily) where do you think you're going?

Komasu: i, uh... i really needed to study for my history test on monday! i just... wanted to study for a... little bit...

Durithyll: you're "little bit" is four hours. come here. (grabs her by the arm and pulls her out of the closet, which is also her room)

Komasu: but i need to study!

Durithyll: Later! i always put things off till later! (turns back to the reader) ok, this, is Komasu! she's a bat and is currently in college. She's the youngest of us at 18 and she's also a Transformers fan! just like me! isn't that awesome!?

That's Jacob over there. He's a mechanic is completely and utterly whipped by his girlfriend, Mowo. Mowo is a cat and one of Livi's characters. They make the absolute CUTEST couple!! Anyway, hes a weasel. and a halo-obsessed gamer freak.

And last, but certainly not least, Daiyori! he's a dark grey snake and an absolute jerk!

Jacob: He's also a mooch.

Durithyll: what!? Daiyori is not a mooch!

Jacob: he's the ONLY one who doesn't have a job!

Durithyll: whatever! (turns back to the reader) he may seem jerkish, but he actually DOES care! he just hides it behind a mountain of snark. (claps hands together)

And i think that's all! now, i'm going--

Zatannii: what about me?

Jacob: WHAT!? ZATANNII!! (whirls around the room, trying to find him) Where are you!?

Zatannii: on the computer! (the monitor screen suddenly shifts to show a blonde headed guy with a perpetual smile on his face) hi!

Jacob: (picks up one of the bar stools, intending to throw it at the computer)

Roake: hey! (lets go of Daiyori and lunges at Jacob)

Daiyori: (gasps for air) finally! i can BREATHE!

Roake: (yanks the stool out of Jaocb's hands)

Jacob: you... you...

Zatannii: hang on! i'll be there in a second! (the monitor screen blips off and back on, showing what had previously been on there)

Durithyll: ...and that was Zatannii! We met when he downloaded himself into my computer! the confusing part though... is that he can magically show up as a human... No matter how many times we ask him HOW, HE NEVER ANSWERS. he just smiles and says--

Zatannii: --"But if i told you, you'd know!" (Zatannii walks into the Apartment from the front door) (waves) hi!

Jacob: will you get out of here!?

Zatannii: love you too Jacob! (turns to he reader) hi! i'm Zatannnii! and i'm a cop!

Durithyll: he never explains how he can be a (yells at Zatannii) POLICE OFFICER as well. So Zatannii is just one big--

Jacob: --homicidal, psychopathic SADIST!!

Durithyll: i was going to say mystery... anyway, if you want to know a little bit more on how Zatannii showed up, just read the Epic Comment Posting i currently have up. I don't have the whole thing up yet, but it should be up here soon! Start with the comment that was left by "Drogan" and read down.

now that that's out of the way--

Boredom: (poofs in) sigh... hi.

Durithyll: Boredom! you're here! (lunges at Boredom and glomps her)

Boredom: get off of me! (shoves Durithyll off)

Durithyll: (not the least but offended) hi!

Boredom: ug... (places hand on fore-head) Finale insisted i show up for your first blog entry on the new site.

Durithyll: really!? I feel loved!!

Boredom: hey! wasn't my idea!! Finale is forcing me!!

Durithyll: (didn't seem to take notice) Boredom is an Elemental. that means that she is one of the aspects of art. She is the source of all the inspiration in Here (Here is the name of the reality where the Residents and the Crew exist)! but she's a jerk too... she has a semi-sadistic side in the fact that she loves seeing artist's fail to reach their dead-line because of lack of inspiration. not to mention that when she gives inspiration, it's by hitting you really hard upside the head with the "Glove of Inspiration."

The Elementals can be a bit confusing! For each aspect of art, theres an Elemental. Like there's Imagination, Artist Block, Finale, and a bunch of others! They live above all we mortals in a seperate reality the Mystery Mansion. Thery're also responsible for the creation of new realities.

If you still don't get it, just ask!

Ok, now, i REALLY need to go!

Daiyori: no you don't. you just want to fix yourself a cup of coffee.

Durithyll: that's urgent! it's past nine o'clock and i STILL haven't had my coffee yet!! so i REALLY need to go!

If any of you guys have any questions, just ask!

LEVEL OF CANON: 2 -- CHARACTER CANNON

 

Crap!! I pulled a Zanna!! OH NOES!!

BUT, i did need to move the Residents to a different site! CrazedMind just wasn't big enough! whatever. I do plan on keeping CrazedMind updated and what not, because THIS IS NOT MY FANGIRL SITE. this site is JUST for the Residents! ah... my beloved Residents! Squee! anyway, so CrazedMind will still be updated! But, I do want to spend the time being ironing out the kinks and what not of the Apartment, so CrazedMind will have to be on hold for just a little bit!

ok, enough of that!

sigh... i'm so happy i finally got this site up! it's still a bit new, so it's not complete yet, but it's close! i love the Residents so much! i REALLY wanted to get them their own site! and here it is!

Concerning the banner... This was the first of a set of banners that had recently been completed. It's of the Scribe, Famine. I'm not sure if anyone besides myself, Livi, and Ninja know this, but Famine is also Boredom's sister. Famine is NOT an Elemental, she's a Scribe. And the text on the banner looks really messy, i know. I tried fixing it, but it just wouldn't work! in case you can't tell, it says:                                 

"Another man,

Another night,
 
Another famine.


The fun just never stops."


It's actually a quote, and really bugs me. You see, Famine is immortal like all the Scribes. But for some reason, Famine is always sleeping around with mortal men (usually kings and royalty). Not because she loves them, but because she gets a kick out of sleeping with them right before she inflicts the country with famine, thus killing thousands of the people. Please, understand that i am NOT saying that i approve of this behaviour! it sickens me! But Famine is messed up. Not because of something tragic that happened in her life or anything like that, but because she just IS. And for the record, Boredom is also disgusted by Famine because of this.

Anyway, i posted a head shot of her on the Sketch book page, because if i'm gonna bust my butt on drawing all that hair detail, i want people to see it! so click on it!

Another thing! I've made a page for the Epic Comment Postings! I'll transfer ALL the comments from the one of CrazedMind (all one-hundred and six of em...) and post them onto to one of here! yay ECPs!!

I'm kind of rushed at the moment, but i just really wanted to get this published now! so expect to here back from me soon!

-D

ps: be sure to go to the "Fiction" page!
