This is basically a thread for people to ask for help with fanart or fanfiction or other stuff (I'm guessing it go's in this forum since fanart and fanfiction but I could be wrong) so come here if you need ideas or have writers block

Yes This will be a very useful thread for me. I always get writer's block and need new ideas.

What a coincidence. I was just about to ask for help in the Official fanfiction thread.

Since Oleander is such a complex character I'm having a hard time writing him down. Since we all view characters differently this will be a bit hard to explain.

To me Oleander could make me laugh, get pissed off, feel sympathy, and feel other emotions. So when writing him I don't want him to come off as "Woe is me. I am angry. Look at my angry face."

Oh and the time period that I am writing in is a month or two before the camp started. I'm in the rough rough stages of my story. That's why I'm being so loose with this.

(you are asking for other peoples opinons on oleander or asking for story ideas oh well heres both) he kinda reminded me of a wanna be drill sergeant thats why I liked him because he's trying to be mean but really is'nt and I guess you could show how he went crazy and how his nightmares took over his mind

This is really making me think. I'm almost itching for a pencil now. But you did bring up something important about him that I think I was forgetting.


I never even stopped to think that he has nightmares. I only asummed that Boyd and Milla had them.

A few questions. Is Jake in Whispering Rock?

If so, then try to style what he wears around the Whispering Rock uniform. For his face, if you want it to be in the Psychonauts style go print out pictures of various Psychonauts drawings. Don't copy the pictures just pick up the style of the faces.

Hope this helped.

Okay, I've got a question for you all: if Sasha and Milla were to walk into a bar (and no, this is not a joke set-up), what drinks would they order?

Milla strikes me as the sort to order one of those crazy fancy drinks with the names I can never keep straight (Cosmopolitans, maybe? Hm.), but I'm not sure which one. (Oh, Full Throttle fanfic with your beer and whiskey characters, you have spoiled me so.)

As for Sasha, he probably doesn't drink at all, but if he did...? I have no idea what he'd drink.

(And yes, I just got to page three of the fic I owe shinzuku, and yes, Milla did just forcibly drag Sasha into a pub. I have no idea why. *facepalm*)

I can only really see Sasha drinking out of courtesy ordering wine and a little fancy glass of that. In fact we do see Sasha drinking just that.

Though I do think Milla would have a more exotic drink.

Writing always does seem to take far too long espically when others know about it. Let's just say I am a very slow writer who hates to be rushed. I have to get in the writing mood and then I'm writing not one not two pages but ten or eleven at a time.

You can make up a character and be the part you want, just keep record of each person. All you have to do if you want to make up a character is just give me their bios and description. Please and thanks.
