Long, Irritated Post About Accents and Language

Randus casts the Comprehend Language ritual and can now speak and understand Elven for however long.

Immediately realizes Orem is a massive country bumpkin (as has been joked about earlier).  To quote Rodrigo: “All the mystique is gone."  Randus just about dies laughing.

And apparently Ket speaks apparently the Elven equivalent of the General American accent.  Which…makes sense actually.

Never really seemed to…reach a consensus on what Trelle’s Elven sounded like.

Yeah, because I wanted to murder everyone, because their linguistic ideas were all wrong and I didn’t have time to diagram out all the problems with everything that was being stated. So I just stewed in agitation instead.

Okay, here’s my Critical Hit Office AU (CHO AU???)

because why not I guessimage

KET is the cutie in marketing who would be smooth and sophisticated if he were smooth and sophisticated. Instead he’s cute and kind of awkward, at least when he’s not actively… marketing (hey I’ve never worked in an office) Mostly he’s quiet, sometimes he makes jokes, once in a while he gets obviously frustrated by trying to interact with other people. He spends his breaks with Randus. He also hangs around after hours if Randus is working late. 

RANDUS is in RD. Equally awkward, but in a less pointy way. He’s always in the background fiddling with something—in fact, last week he “fixed” the coffee machine in the break room so well it occasionally gets up on little spidery legs and comes and pours you a cup of coffee if it thinks you need it. (how the coffee machine ascertains whether you need it is still in alpha. Until Randus makes adjustments, it’s best to just take the mug and make appreciative noises until it goes away. if there’s another Incident, the janitors are absolutely going on strike.) He and Ket are flatmates, and they take public transit into work together.

OREM is the guy who nobody really knows what his job is, least of all Orem. His uncle is like the president of the company or something. (he’s actually that vague if he’s asked about it. he gives off the distinct impression that this isn’t an attempt to be modest or deflecting or whatever, he genuinely doesn’t know.) He’s got a trust fund, but his parents insist that he actually work (and Dr Rivendorn and Dr Rivendorn nee Greyborn are difficult people to defy). He quickly realized that working at a coffee shop would entail actual work, but here at the office he can rely on the double combo of nepotism and the size of the company to stay relatively undisturbed.

TRELLE also works in marketing, and she and Ket regularly butt heads. They’re both really good at what they do—and candidly they’re both used to being the best at what they do, which goes a long way towards explaining the headbutting. She’s a total cutie, but everyone knows that she’s got a mysterious S.O. she keeps promising they’ll get to meet, you know, eventually. When the time’s right. Maybe the Christmas party.

finally, TORQ works in HR. He’s the character who almost never speaks. Mostly what happens is other characters go to him with their problems and he sits there like an almighty guru while they talk through their own thoughts and walk away feeling a lot better and thinking that Torq really knows what he’s talking about. His office is full of fidget objects. There’s also a couch in there that people sometimes crash on.

Comic Production Update

selfinversion:

I’ve more or less completed STAGE FOUR of my comic. This means I have all the text and speech bubbles done and I’m going to need a pair of fresh eyes to give the once over to make sure I haven’t missed any grammatical errors and spelling mistakes. Which is to say, I need a proof reader. I have to whole 17 page comic saved onto a .pdf file and a (possibly superfluous ) .docx handout for you to write out all your thoughts and corrections. In the mean time I will be working on STAGE FIVE which is preparing the sites I going to be publishing it on, finishing banners and other such details. I aiming to get this comic up and going by September.

 If you are interested in proofreading the first chapter of my comic please send me an ask, or email me at selfinversion@gmail.com.

Fair warning though, this is a mature comic and contains a fair amount of blood and gore in the first part.

The more stuck-up/condescending I consider the species of elfy-guy the longer I draw their ears.

Half-Elf -> Wood Elf (with a bonus of being also a teeny bit more animalistic) -> High Elf -> Drow -> Eladrin

like the megalocerous and its antlers, eladrin have difficulties navigating the woods native their home due to the massive size of their egos ears

why can’t there be a boob transfer system for all women?? like, a girl can be like “I have an F cup and I really want to go down a couple of sizes because my back hurts” and a girl with an A cup could be like “Oh could you transfer some of ur boob tissue to me because I’d like to go up a size” and it would be done

do you have any idea how great that would be

ok but imagine if trans boys could donate their boobs to trans girls

Comic Production Update

I’ve done it, STAGE THREE is over. The art for chapter one of my comic is completed. It’s muddy, kinda off and the mistakes I’ve made are going to haunt me for the rest of my days. However, I promised myself I would move forward and not go back and tweak unimportant details or else I may as well scrap the whole project then and there.  IT WILL DO.

Now STAGE FOUR is putting in all the text bubbles and sound effects. This part shouldn’t take me too long although I’d like a proof reader to go through everything and make sure it all makes sense. I’ll ask around when it gets to that stage but if you’re interested feel free to let me know. I’ll email you all the pages on a pdf and make a little handout for you to write your thoughts and corrections on.

After that all I have is to do is STAGE FIVE, which is creating a place to publish it online, banners, promotional stuff etc .  If all goes well I should have something to show for my YEARS of hard work by sometime this spring.*fingers crossed*

Guess what we’ll have at Nerdtacular!!! I just got my proof copy in the mail. Damian’s giving Smith kisses. He hasn’t listened to the show so he doesn’t know he’s in for heartbreak.

I’ll let you know when digital and hardcopies go on sale!

Guys, I’ve seen it. This thing is really amazing. missveryvery really outdid herself here. If you’re going to nerdtacular then you need to pick one of these up and if you’re not, then keep an eye out for when they go on sale.

Australians get so confused during winter half of the population looks like they have 6 layers on and are ready to hibernate at any given moment the other half is wearing shorts and singlets saying “it’s not even that cold mate” every ten seconds

The best part is that these halves share the same space.
