    Wolf it ↑

    June 25, 2017 by Rakgnarok

    Hey guys!

    So, I was checking the RP and I was thinking on what excuse could Fionn use for his servantile behaviour if asked again and i happened to recall a conversation between Fionn and Ajax Dratter in which Ajax mentions Fionn isn't a Beta or Alpha wolf and I just began to wonder what Ranking would Fionn be assigned to in wolf terminology. While I did recall the terminology of "Omega" wolves I did not recall what it exactly implied so I did a little research and here's what I got: 

    Alpha wolves are basically the leaders, they get to eat first and they get to couple with the best mate, another alpha wolf of the opposite gender, a n alpha's job is to make sure the rest of the pack respects them through constant displays of endurance and dom…

    This is just a fun little enemy I came up with for DS. Obviously, he's not meant to be canon in the slightest, nor is this really supposed to be taken too seriously. This ain't supposed to be used lmao

    There was a warrior, an evil man with many kills under his belt. However, as he grew older, he realized he might not ever be able to fight again. Thus, he turned to a witch who offered him this:

    "You may live forever, as long as you kill while doing so!"

    How could he say no? Little did he know, he was going to make the worst deal ever.

    The witch conjured up some unknown, supernatural energy, gently swirled it around... then grabbed him and branded his face with it. The warrior screamed in agony as he felt the energy take him over, and soon, he f…

    (So, with Jaz' s closure on Max and Alexis, I figured I would write this, and tell you what I think would happen. Of course, you are free to believe whatever happened in your mind, and maybe something might be canon or not. Who knows?

    Enough rambling, here it is.)

    It was a warm morning, a great day to be alive and outside. To enjoy life as it was, considering it could end at eny moment. Out in the woods, lived a brother and sister, who decided to make their life out in the quiet, where they could have some peace to themselves. Make things right. They had built a house using the environment around them, a nice little cabin in the woods. It had everything they needed. Beds, a stove, a river within walking distance. It was a good, if lonely, pl…

    So, I don't really know what I'm really doing here right now.

    I'm just kinda empty space that someone else could be using. I don't contribute much to RP, nor do I really have the interest.

    So, here goes.

    I'm likely leaving the RP, and from the looks of things concerning roles, for good.

    It's been great while it lasted, but this honestly just doesn't suit me anymore.

    I just kinda feel like when I DO post, it's not enough, and of course, that's even IF I post.

    I, of course, am available on the FNAF RP wiki, if you actually use that site.

    More likely, I'm gonna be available on Discord, as diddles#0647.

    If you use Skype, I'm gonna be Meme King. The one with the Lucoa giving a thumbs up with shades. My status should be "blyat" also.

    • a thing that's not necessarily personal for both people involved but is kinda private anyway
    • a vacation after finals to san francisco for two weeks (actually im still here, it's pretty damn nice)

    so yeah, sorry for that

    i'll be back in about nine days from SF, i might do some things or not

    These are my reviews for each character. Just so you know, I’ll be taking into account how they act inrp as well, but will basically only mention stuff based on their pages.

    ‘’That One Guy Who Everyone Feels Like Was There but Wasn’t.’’

    A pacifist Fox anthro who will harm people if he gets super mad. Despite his pacifism, he was the first to draw a weapon when spotting Alicia. :3

    How is knowing how to use a spear a weakness? (I figure this is a mistake but pointing it out cause why not?)

    Falaos believes Alicia attacked them when it was the other way around.

Instead of doing another User Rant (because let's face it, it'd be the same shit with me complaining about Toreador again) why not do a OC rant instead? basically, I'd talk about each RPers main character (so, for instance, I'd talk about Fionn but NOT Xil).

    So, there I was, watching some Noragami, when I realized...

    They have a nice coloring style in the intro!

    So, I decided to try out their coloring style for myself on that one pic of Dark I drew a while ago.

    Yeah yeah, it's a bit big cause I scanned it with my printer and shiz (also, that's a copy of that pic that I colored, not the original (cause if I mess up then the original is ruined), thus why some parts look like it's been printed)

    Basically, Noragami's style of coloring in the opening of an episode is that the character is basically black and white except for their eyes and their signature color on their clothes, thus Dark's eyes are colored and everything that is blue is colored.

    Jesus, I really am a lazy twat.

    Anyways, I have some things to say, as well as an update to make.

    First off, yes, as some of you are thinking, I have decided to leave this wiki. Maybe even all of wikia because of the shit that it's gonna go through. And knowing that this place, and many others will just fall apart and become forgotten because of this update is another thing.

    I wanna make it clear, I don't hate this place at all. It's one of the most creative places ever. The fact that someone I knew almost two years ago went on to make this amazing place, and kept it going for this long is mind boggling. And with such a huge fan base full of grand ol' people is a…

    Since we're all doing blogs for shiz now, here's an update:

    • I do the science fair things in a couple of weeks, but I'm pretty prepared for that, and totally not stressed since it's already a success in my eyes, and literally nothing can make it a failure to me now.
    • The stressful drama thing no longer plagues me either. We went to the competition, and got a few awards, but didn't move on to the next level so we're freeee!
    • Things are running smoothly with wikistuffs.
    • Schoolwork's either going to be easy af or it's going to hit me like a brick wall today when I return from March break.
    • Still haven't gotten the energy to work on art requests, but hopefully soon.
    • Finally moving my computer to a better spot in the house for me today! :D

    1. My profile; it looks shitty. Does anybody know how to make:

    red = black, and

    blue = red?

    I mean seriously.

    Doesn't look all that good to me. Kinda stupid, actually. I've picked at the code but I can't seem to figure it out.

    Also, regarding this shit;

    Google disabled the music thing. Why Google? It worked just fine the way it is.

    Does anyone know if a replacement exists, or will people have to simply (god forbid) open my music in a new tab?

    Jaz is currently having security certificate issues which aren't allowing her to come onto mainspace wikia, meaning she can only access chat and nothing else.

    She doesn't know when she will be able to get back. Maybe days, weeks, months, who knows. Hopefully, it won't be that long, though.

    Til the problem is fixed, I will be in control of the carriages and will be keeping parts up, so don't be surprised if instead of Jaz posting the next part it's me. Hopefully, she'll be back by the time this part closes, but just informing you.

    So, I was sitting here in Science, bored, and I started drawing random lines, and then I was like "I should make the Swordsmen letters!" and so I am.

    And then I was like "How can I make a font?" and I looked it up and it looked simple enough.

    SO yeah, that's about it, gonna make the Swordsmen Letter system and make a font of it.

    Swordsmen Letters

    If you notice patterns then you are cool (people in chat don't count cause I told em)

    UPDATE: Ok, so, the font has been made, but unfortunately, due to things, it has to be downloaded in order for it to be seen. And since I can't give you all the download, no one can actually see it.

    Hey everyone! 

    So, I've been talking to some friends lately and reading some comics they write in MS paint, kinda like homestuck, and I decided it'd be a fun project to try, so now I have started a little comic of my own, here's the link if you wanna check it out.

    The comic works by suggestions, meaning that the readers get to suggest what action the main or current character will take, hopefully you guys will find it entretaining!  :p

    Sorry Jaz, I know you probably cant read it because whitelist, I mean, if you could I bet you'd easily be able to make a comic 100 times better than mine considering you've got some mad MS paint skills and story writing skills.

    So, I've been a fan of the Monster Hunter series for some time now, and especially the themes that play when you fight the monsters themselves. As I doubt you all would be interested in the specific anatomy of each and every monster in the series, I'm just going to post the links to the themes I personally like the most as well as a short description of the monster it is attached to.


    This high-energy theme belongs to Zinogre, the Thunder Wolf. Zinogre is a very unpleasant monster to encounter because, despite it's impressive size, it is extremely agile. Seriously, Sparky here does backflips, mid-air rolls, and back slams, all while charging up with lightning. Once he is fully charged, enters a kind of super mode where all of his attac…

    On the side, watching the Death elemental’s training were a blue wolf anthro, a dragon anthro, a girl with long white hair and a man with a faux hawk, they were respectively, Sylvan or Sub for short, Wisp, Momo, and Max.

    It's 56°F outside at the moment. Why is this good?

    It feels amazing, that's why. Look, it's been in the, well, very cold range. (I live somewhere in the Northeast coast of the United States, It can get cold, although not Minnesota cold.)

    Also, it's March!

    Why is this great? Because February sucks!

    I mean, Valentine's day sucks, winter sucks, etc. sucks, you get it.

    But it ends on the midnight of the 28th day. Probably because the people who made February a month hate it so much that they couldn't bear 31 days of it.

    Twenty-One Pilots - Heathens - Sound cool

    Wrabel - 11 Blocks - A friend said this song was poorly written, but I think it was well sung.

    All American Rejects - No explanation needed

    Jacksepticeye - Don't ask, just listen.

    You don't reply to the RP after a certain time.

    You only invited PBE to join the RP because you wanted him to make theories about DS. (Or at least that's what I believe)

    You yelling about your video game shiz in chat annoys me sometimes. Like, what are we supposed to do? Calm your shiz and get back to playing bruh.

    The party system, like I said, will be Final Fantasy based. At the beginning of battles you can choose up to four Elementals, so you have to be wise in your decision. When coming up with your party of Elementals, you have to keep allies, the advantage system, and the relationships system in mind. All three will be explained later

    Allies are characters that can be summoned by an Elemental and will perform a select action every turn they're out. Allies are acquired through specific quests. An ally will stay out on the field to up to five turns, depending on how powerful they are. When an Elemen…

    If most of you guys didn't leave the FNAF wiki, it wouldn't have fallen to crap as it has now, so I'm just happy to have known you guys when you were active on that wiki.

    So Merry Christmas to those users.

    And as for the users who have never been on the FNAF wiki

    Merry Christmas to you too :)

    I don't have presents for you tho

    Title says it all. I've been on Wikia with a proper account for two full years now. Looking back, I'm so very happy I made this decision. I've grown so much here, and met so many wonderful people. I thank all of you for making this past year so memorable.
