Ramblings on Tuerie.
Since I saw Raie doing the talking about her main characters, I wanted to do it too~ I think her ramblings are really interesting to read. > v <
I should get a picture of Tuerie for this post, but oh well. I’ll update this later.
Old art is old. Oh god eye pain.
I feel like I should not force myself to produce ramblings, but just let my hands type what I want to talk about. This method worked when I wanted to write the one shot of Nightwalkers~ Yeah. I ramble on a lot about nonsense stuff. But anyways! Things behind this are again, rather spoilerific, so click Read More if you want to venture in my nonsense babble.
Why do people lie?
“We start lying at around age 4 to 5 when children gain an awareness of the use and power of language. This first lying is not malicious, but rather to find out, or test, what can manipulated in a child’s environment. Eventually children begin to use lying to get out of trouble or get something they want.” (Why people lie)
“The tendency to tell tales is “a very natural human trait,” explains David L. Smith, Ph.D., associate professor of philosophy at the University of New England, in Biddeford, Maine. “It lets you manipulate the way you want to be seen by others.” (Truth about Lying)
“Psychologist Robert Feldman cites self-esteem as one of the biggest culprits in our lying ways: “We find that as soon as people feel that their self-esteem is threatened, they immediately begin to lie at higher levels.” (The Psychology of Lying)
Later on, let’s look more into the psychology of society.
(I want to know more about this because though I value honesty, I find myself a liar from time to time. Hell, before coming to Exeter, I lied about a lot of things. I exaggerated my issues by a lot. And I’m really curious whether there is a plain and solid reason (psychologically and) biologically that I keep on doing that. Also, the chemistry of lying and how to detect whether someone is lying as well.
So this will be updated. Yush.)
I was going to make a new Tumblr blog for some random things I want to learn about psychology, but for now I’m just going to barf some things I collected over the net that is relevant to the topic on here. (Since a lot of Cataegis has to do with psychology.)
Why does color affect emotions?
“Colors have certain wavelengths, which can be felt and experienced. Emotions have certain wavelengths, which you can also feel and directly experience. Colors and Emotions are both composed of real physical vibrations. This means these movements of energy are affecting you even if you don’t know it. So colors and emotions are constantly affecting you in everyday life.” (How color affects emotions)
“The nervous impulses of the color channel don’t only go to the brain. Some pulses travel to the pituitary and pineal glands through the hypothalamus It is logical to assume that what we see, especially color, can affect the systems of the body. Psychologists and physiologists belive this to be true and are investigating exactly what each color can do to our bodies.” (Color Psychology)
So with that, the colors for the Imperfection crew can be interpret as:
Mono: [Red] Love, warmth, comfort, excitement, intensity
Deux: [Blue] (a color preferred by men), calmness, sadness, aloofness (it also makes food less appetizing)
Drei: [Indigo] Wisdom, self-mastery, depression, spiritual understanding, instance
Fire: [Black] Authority, power, submission/overpowering, comforting, protective, mysteriousness
Cinq: [Green] Nature, fertility, life, balance, restful, self-respect, well-being, harmony
Kuu: [Fuchsia/Magenta] (extra-spectral color, meaning it cannot be generated by a single wavelength of light) —Hot, sensual, exciting, bright, fun, energetic, feminine
Valse: [Orange] —Ambition, fun, happy, energetic, balance, flamboyant, warmth, enthusiasm, generosity, vibrant, expansive, organic
Nyolc: [White] Purity, peace, comfort, freedom, openness, isolation, kindness, wholeness, loyalty
Devini: [Silver] Neutral, corporate, classic, practical, cool, timeless, quiet, quality, evasion, non-commitment, separation, loneliness
Ashra: [Purple] —Spirituality, royalty, mystery, wisdom, transformation, independence, enlightenment, respect, wealth
List of the female characters in Cataegis.
Because I remembered someone had a post about Avatar: The Last Airbender and how each of its female character has a unique theme surrounding them. Toph with her victory over her disability, Katara with being the mother connection between everyone, Yue with giving up her life for her people, blah blah. I thought it was really interesting, so I wrote a list on my own.
I’m either a feminist or a misogynist.
List under cut.
Picture obviously taken with a photo, haha. Didn’t have the willpower to scan it.
Some concept sketches for Tea! And how his redesign is going to look like. More middle-eastern inspired because the era he is in is influenced a lot by the Ottoman Empire era.
It’s actually really fun to draw him, now! Hecouldneverescapedrapyclothes.Nope.
I feel like I should ramble about him a little bit. HMM HMM. He’s one of the characters who are going to appear in the very beginning. Timeline-wise and story-wise.
After the cut, the material is very heavily spoiled. So take precaution.
First page of my sketchbook that I started using 2 weeks ago and I’m already two pages away from the end of it. LOL
This was the lining up of all the OCs who belong to a series prior to Cataegis (including the series’ names/concepts (for the ones whose names are undecided), but all of this is going to be meshed into Cataegis now. LOL
IF YOU CARE ENOUGH. List of characters and which series they belong to.
Bottom row to top row, left to right:
1st row: Tuerie (Reincarnation), Seruchi (Reincarnation), Lina Liz (U.N.D.E.R.W.O.R.L.D.), Lena (her own series which name I refuse to disclose ahahaaaaa…), Pencil Boy (under him is Felix) (Cirque de L’espace)
2nd row: Estelle & Lightto (Cirque de L’espace), Corrine (TeChNiCoLoR), Kuroi (Time), Lait, Coffee, Tea (Trio)
3rd row: Mono, Deux, Drei, Fire, Cinq (Imperfection)
4th row: Kuu, Valse, Devini, Ashra, Amelia (Imperfection)
(Nyolc is not included because she’s Grave’s.)
TECHNICALLY THAT’S KIND OF EVERYONE.
And they’re all main characters.
Why the name Cataegis?
I originally wanted to find an alternate word for “Imperfection” because even though it’s my original title, I think there’s a book by the same name, and that may lead to copyright issues. LOL
Cataegis means ‘flaw’, but also ‘hurricane’. Which is probably how the story’s gonna go down. Tangled connections, madness, chaos, etc.
All of my characters are technically considered main characters.
Even though the story follows Tuerie, each of the character has their own story surrounding them and such. (With Kuroi, that’s a huge factor.)
A lot of people have asked me that if Tuerie is my favorite character. She’s actually not, but when I write stories that include her, she tends to have more leeway because I have a soft spot for my very first original character. u v u;; She was originally made for a self-including fiction thing on SNAFU when I first joined, and BOY did she change a lot.
I don’t know where to put Seruchi in the new plot, though. That’s the thing.
Also, today marks the day that I’m changing Imperfection’s name! I like Latin because it has cool words. Notreallyintoitforthegrammar,though.
