  • Quotes you can build a character off of

    You know those quotes that are just so awesome that you can't help but think "I want to say that" those quotes that you just think "wow" well, why not make a character based on those? You can either quote something else, or make up something new, or somewhere in between.

    Go nuts.

                    Quotes, or song lyrics rather, I have built characters off of:

                    Chosen of Serenity-
                    "There are things we can't recall, Blind as night that finds us all
                    Winter tucks her children in, her fragile china dolls
                    But my hands remember hers, rolling around the shaded ferns
                    Naked arms, her secrets still like songs I'd never learned"

                    Water Aspect -
                    "Hook me up a new revolution
                    'Cause this one is a lie
                    We sat around laughing and watched the last one die"


                    Renegade Midnight-
                    "I will learn to love the skies I'm under"


                    Chosen of Endings -
                    "Brave lady could you see me in the
                    Wait, nameless like a stone"


                    "If only the clockworks could speak

                    I wouldn't be so alone
                    We burn every magnet and spring
                    And spiral into the unknown"


                    "And so lying underneath those stormy skies
                    She'd say, "Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
                    I know the sun must set to rise"


                    Chosen of Secrets-
                    "I know I'll wither so peel away the bark
                    'Cause nothing grows when it is dark
                    In spite of all my fears, I can see it all so clear
                    I see it all so clear"

                      So I'm making God-Kicking Boot, an Exalted webcomic, now. Updates on Sundays. Full-color, mediocre but slowly improving art. It's a thing.

                      The absence of a monument can, in its own way, be something of a monument also.
                      -Roger Zelazny

                          "Take my love, take my land, take me where I cannot stand,
                          I don't care, I'm still free. You can't take the sky from me."

                            So prepare for the coup of the century.
                            Be prepared for mirkiest scam.
                            Meticulous planning
                            Tenacity spanning
                            Decades of Denial
                            (Malfeas-as-Green Sun, with ED's voice as a faint whisper)
                            is simply why I'll
                            be King, Undisputed, Respected, Saluted
                            (ED Alone, bofuscating green sun with open-fanged roar)
                            And Seen for the Wonder I Am!
                            Yes my teeth and ambitions are bared.
                            (Full Infernal Chorus)
                            Be Prepared!

                              More seriously, perhaps, I used to like 'Death is lighter than a feather; duty is heavier than a mountain.'
                              I cn't seem to recall where that came from. I think it's a Wheel of Time quote? The nature of taa'veren and reincarnating, doomed heroes does have its appeal here...
