Hey, just wanted you to know that I like reading your musings about Seven. I really need to threadstalk some of your threads, I've never seen (read) him in action.

Also, your drawing skills are amazing! I'd love to see more of your art in the future. I also think you have inspired me, because recently I've thought about trying some drawing myself again. I used to draw manga-esque stuff too, but I don't draw as much anymore. Thanks for giving me back some kind of spirit. :)

Pretty much just crazy musings and other stuff

Thanks guys for your comments. =) Alice, I'm happy I could inspire you! Other artists inspire me all the time to draw; when I'm feeling particularly uninspired I usually hop on deviantART and search through the weekly popular art submissions and something more often than not pops out to me and I think 'boy, that would be fun to try to do'. Or, sometimes I'll just read something incredible and I'll want to paint it - and fail horribly usually, because painting isn't my forte.

So I think about character development a lot. Perhaps enough to call it an obsession. I lost my iPod a few months back and have neglected to replace it, so whenever I hop on public transit I usually lose myself entirely in my thoughts. It's really easy for me to do and something I passed on to Seven. I will literally zone into another world on my own if I let myself. Lately a lot of what I've been thinking about is Seven and his slowly changing attitude - and I've gotta say, to me he's on a slow boat to insanity.

But boy, is that journey gonna be fun.

It all began with his realization that his father had up and displaced him without his complete permission (sure, he went on the trip willingly but it was under false pretenses): Let's take a moment and examine Zhao Xu's psychology. It isn't exactly steadfast, sending your son to an uncertain future (I mean Seven could have died) just to prove a point. Maybe there's a predisposition for Seven to be a little off in the head.
Before this, it was uncommon to see Seven trying to manipulate conversations - now he does it all the time, unconsciously or not. He's beginning to feel a need for control, however little it is. I think I may allow him to travel down this road for a while, see where it goes. He certainly isn't as innocent and unassuming as he acts ... I think that's part of why I sort of want him to be a little crazy on the inside. I love the blissfully happy and insane.
If he ever makes it back towards Lhavit I see it ending ... not well, on his sanity.

Anyway, my thoughts were distracted by a dog that needed to take a poop and this whole post lost a lot of steam. Hah. Steam.

Until next time.
Seven Xu
