  1. I have... an idea. And it's a massive one. (Yes, I just posted a status update about this, but this needs more publicity - and this thread will give more detail anyway ) So a lot of you guys may know the acronym CBST. Perhaps you also know that it stands for The Cosmic Battle to Save the Thread and that it was an RP started on TLT. Well, the CBST-verse is a MASSIVE one with cosmere-sized potential. See, as I said, CBST started on The Longest Thread and if you know anything about TLT, you know that it's a chaotic hot mess, which is... not exactly the most stable place to start a storyline. In the two years since CBST started, I have made MASSIVE leaps and bounds to organize the craziness that started there and I think that just maybe, we could really make something fun out of this. If y'all can't tell, I'm just begging for more CBST content, please send help. I'm sure that if you're reading this here and not in my status update, you'll need a tiny bit more elaboration. So, CBST is built around the concept of Narrators: beings with nigh-infinite power that are incredibly human. The magic system is based on the concept of Light, Darkness, Order, and Chaos. @xinoehp512 and I have worked very hard on the story, the characters, and the world that CBST takes place in. It's very dear to my heart and I think since everyone reading this is here on a book fansite, y'all will love the meta undertones about authors, writing, and story tropes that are a huge part of this world in which my heart resides. So here's what I'm proposing. I want to re-tell CBST. That implies that we'd just be re-doing CBST stuff, but that's not what I mean at all. There are so many different worlds, magic systems, and plot lines that could be explored here. If this sounds interesting to you AT ALL, just say so and I will add you to a planning PM. It will require some explaining of the magic (which I will explain as concisely as I can and allow for a ton of room for y'all to experiment) but I am STOKED for this to maybe take off. Happy RPing! Love you guys. Character Sheets:
  2. Hi, all! I realized recently that I wish I was in more RPs, but I wanted it to be one that I created. So! I came up with an idea. It's technically a CBST spin off, but y'all wouldn't have to know anything about CBST to join. Basically, I'll be playing a hardened young woman named Rose Oakenwey who has decided to become a bounty hunter and is struggling to combat her powers of future sight and telekinesis. The idea is to have it be super unstructured so literally anyone can join. I'll leave this post up and then tomorrow I'll just kick it off with Rose going to a tavern to find some information about a bounty. Because taverns are great places to start a fun adventure! Don't do anyone too OP, I suppose, but any investiture is fine with me. Rose herself doesn't fit into any cosmere magic systems, but... eh, I don't care. *shrug* Anyway, I hope there's interest in this, even though it's super unplanned and kinda random! If someone wants to meet up with Rose and start trying to befriend her, I'd love that. It'll be set in a medieval-like time period on an unnamed planet. Also, here's Rose's character sheet:

    Some hot chocolate, inspired by CBST!
  6. Here's some art of Rose from the Oakenwey RP. It was a ton of fun to make.
  7. Hello, all! Unless you have a character in the CBST thread, this isn't gonna be an RP you can really participate in, but anyone's welcome to watch this go down. I'm pretty stoked for this little experiment. Tomorrow Thanksgiving will be over and THAT means we can start celebrating Christmas!!! (although I confess I've had my little tree in my room for about a week up to this point ) I was thinking about CBST - as I've proven myself prone to do - and I realized that Heather is the only one who knows about Christmas and, well, that just cannot stand. This will be in an AU set in the future. The future so that Sophie and Granite can join in and Star and Pheonix can be a fully functioning couple, and an AU so that Ember can be around. Because, let's be real, a CBST Christmas would feel so wrong without Ember getting to see snow and freak out like a kid in a candy store. And no Phar awkwardness for this holiday. Granite would be trying waaaaaay too hard to get his mother and Pheo under the mistletoe and while I think I would enjoy that, I don't want Xino to freak out; this should just be fun and honestly more for us than the characters. I wish we could all be together for the holidays and while we can't, our characters definitely can! I know this is probably going to be cheesy - I mean, c'mon, it's a cliche Christmas special, what do you expect? - but I really hope that we can just laugh at ourselves and enjoy it. I've been missing the plot on the main CBST thread, but I know that there's kinda been some pressure in that realm. The timelines with Sophie/Granite/Michael/Max and Star/Heather/Ember/Pheo need to be fixed up, Shadow hasn't been able to be here are regularly, Jay's got all sorts of school stuff to do, and I know Xino has a lot of hard stuff to write. I don't want there to be any pressure at all here though. Y'all, COVID sucks and I hope that the holidays can maybe relieve a little bit of that awfulness. Anyway, I'll leave it up to Shadow to start, But I think I'll kick it off on Monday if she can't be here. I'M SO EXCITED and I hope you are too! @Ookla the Reserved @Jaywalk @BringerofShadows
  8. OH MY SHARDS IT'S ALREADY THAT TIME OF YEAR AGAIN. Y'all, in the past year I have come so storming far in my artwork. I've learned a ton about anatomy and proportions and I've gotten better at shading and faces and it's honestly really crazy to me. I am SO GLAD my friend convinced me to do the Inktober challenge last year, because it will be a great benchmark to compare this year to. I spent an insane amount of time prepping for this and I am on the edge of my seat for each and every drawing that I'll be presenting to y'all. One thing I'm doing slightly different this year: I had the idea to put some color in one of the drawings and then I realized it would be a ton of fun if I tried to colored one thing in each drawing. (Don't worry, it's still ink :P) So I really hope that works out (there will undoubtedly be a handful and a half that are completely black and white though and I am totally fine with that). Six or seven months ago I really started using markers in my art and I have since amassed over 60 different shades. They're ridiculously fun to art with. I also decided to base a lot more of my drawings on specific quotes. Some of those quotes are from non-canon Keyed stuff, some are from CBST, some are from TLT, some are from stuff that will be in the Keyed books, and some are from me just messing around. I am SO excited to kick things off tomorrow!!!! See ya then! - Star
  9. Yay, I've completed my first Inktober drawing! Ink is... a lot easier than I expected. I still have a lot to learn, but I am immensely happy with the way this is going so far! Here's for the prompt "ring" - Star's wedding ring around Marsh's linchpin spike. *sigh* Bittersweet...
