In StS, Nightopia/the Night Dimension is one of the highest planes of existence, so to speak, and serves as the lucid dream world for most universes (as in, you have to be lucid to find your way there, unless you’re specifically summoned). Visitors may not be able to fly well at first, but once they get the hang of it, it’s practically second nature.

Sonic Rose can’t fly, due to the weight of all his mental burdens. It bums him out immensely, and also annoys him because it means relying on NiGHTS to get anywhere. (She kidnapped his astral self when he was younger so that Amy would play a “game” with her, see)

I have in mind that he’d manifest Red Ideya (Bravery) at a time when he felt really self-conscious about his perceived lack of intelligence, an event that NiGHTS would help him realize isn’t as disappointing as he feels.

Technically, Opal isn’t my only Gen, but the other three don’t really represent me.

Chartreuse and Marigold (aka Zathura and Shalia; art is from ‘09) were created a short while after Opal, I think, though until ‘09 they were pretty much just “there”; they had no dreamers and were pawns of Reala (later Pendula). Zathura and Shalia represented groups of people from middle and early high school I wasn’t fond of, but with that came some attitudes of mine that I’m no longer comfortable with. So if those two ever get speaking roles again, I’m altering that aspect of them.

Scarlet (art is from ‘05 or ‘06, thus it cannot be directly looked at for longer than five seconds), meanwhile, was born out of fridge logic. In WtaHM, Orange was the Gen of Claris Sinclair, one of the two playable characters of NiGHTS into Dreams. Elliot, however, didn’t have a Gen nor were there any allusions to such, and wasn’t included in group shots of the real-life crew. This confused me, so I ended up creating Scarlet, and then proceeded to not do much with him (I don’t think he was intended to be a major character).

I drew all four of my Gens in the bottom left-hand corner of felt pen doodle page #27, back in 2012 (holy crap that’s only page 27? I’m up to 87 as of this writing). Right now, I’m not sure if the other three will remain Gens or I’ll abstract them into something else.

As long as it isn’t a saftey hazard, I don’t see why we can’t have them. And yeah, if the tattoo is inappropriate or if your plugs have something inappropriate on them, then I can see why they would want them covered up it taken out. But if you have blue hair and the store or whatever wont hire you because of that, fuck them. I like your blue hair, I’ll hire you.

This.

One hundred percent support

i cant even tell you how sick to fucking death of this body policing bullshit i am. its 2014, we’ve cloned sheep, get the fuck over it and hire a person with cotton candy pink hair and metal in their face, what the fuck is the problem???

I am ALL about this. I bitch about it in the comic a lot too, lol. Fuck pointless discrimination that hammers out self expression.

Repost from dA; submitted May 11. Lots of folks have been posting art of their Gens and right now, I’m too lazy to make some new pics.
This is Blair, aka Opal (Blue subgen). She’s existed since around 2005 or so, back when fan Gens were ill-advised, and so I didn’t post any art of her until 2009. This was what she originally looked like; a few days later, I redesigned her to reflect her new outlook and values. The above image is Opal’s third design.
Opal wanders the realms and draws other Gens; she’s especially interested in Navy, Violet, and Black, because she seems to remember a time when they didn’t exist (prolly just misfired neurons; meta-reason being that I was pretty into WtaHM, which lacked Gens of those colours).

Back when Sonic and co.’s Boom designs had been recently unveiled and all we knew about the second major villain was that they were more dangerous than Eggman, I theorized that the true Big Bad was a wrathful creator deity who purged and toyed with Mobius as they saw fit until the people finally rose up and sealed them away. Out-of-story, this led to the creation of Excella, the hyper-aggressive central AI of the Ancient Land, who protects it from outsiders by turning the outsiders into crimson memory dust, and tirelessly calculates a way to free the Sealed God.
Now that Lyric has turned out to be distinctly un-divine (otherwise, what need would he have for life-extending bio-mechanics?), I’m saving this concept for a later Boom story.
Art-wise, the whole thing was inspired by a shot in the PS3 opening of Steins;Gate. There is no hiding from Excella, by the way.

Introducing the Terrible Trio, my first-ever Klonoa OCs from way back in 2005; their names are Derek, Makai, and Ren. While the details got changed around, IIRC the basic story of how they met Klonoa remained the same: he crashed-landed in a kingdom with ridiculous and restrictive laws, and the Trio helped him deal with his trespassing sentence.
Makai (17), the leader, is incredibly proficient at loophole abuse, which she’s teaching to Ren; it’s how the trio has gone so long without getting arrested. Visually she’s always had a bit of Amy Rose in her, which I decided to accentuate by making her the flashiest dresser. (She’s not a fashionista like StS!Amy, though)
Derek (14) is the quiet one, speaking and acting only when he feels it necessary. It’s a bit hard to tell here, but he’s got heterochromia; one eye is a darker shade of green, possibly from getting whacked on the head early in his life. Derek didn’t have this trait until now (he and Makai originally had yellow eyes).
Ren (11) seems cool and collected, but he can get flustered easily. His family is nobility, which helps contribute to the Trio’s long no-arrest streak. My 2011 notes said that he had a “terrible secret”, but didn’t specify what it was.
