Something I hear often from other artists/writers/etc is that they enjoy it when their characters suffer.

I don't get that at all??? I'd much rather all of my characters live happily than be the subjects of tragic stories. Bits like this chapter are just means to an end for me, and honestly pretty painful to make! I am way too empathetic for my own good. >_<

And maybe the other artists/writers/etc that I talk to are all sociopaths. It's possible!

But alas, DotX finds its emotional moments anyway. They make the eventual resolution all that much better! It's suffering for the sake of suffering that I'm against. My god I am rambling.


Who do you think each character of the cast would say is their 'best friend' if asked? Now this would be separate than their girl/boyfriend, and does not need to be reciprocated between characters!

...I feel like I worded that in a very confusing way.

(Technically Monkey ball 2. Also Pikmin 3 multiplayer and Splatoon! WHAT A TIME TO BE ALIVE!)

Whenever there's a sad or dramatic moment in stories, it really makes the reader/viewer dig deep into themselves and connect with the character in pain. It makes the story and characters much more meaningful and you grow attached to them when you feel what they feel. The pain is one of the most important parts of a story (at least in my opinion). Im feeling really bad for speedy and I just wanna hug him so much. ;__;

Also, same sex couple? :0 That'd be cool, but I dont know who would be with who.

I think Gell and Goo might be best friends, or Gell and Pudding.
And when comenting about "woah" I seem to have forgot to type in my username.

Why'd you put a smile after 'Woah'? How is that funny? This is a sad scene...

Ah geez, poor Speedy. He's kinda acting really, really, really, ridiculously pitiful.And people are looking, like actually looking, in his direction. And none of this would've happened if it weren't for Clone. But then Speedy wouldn't have realized he loved
Pudding And it would be an infinite friend zone.
And NeedForSpeedy, bring it down a noch, Children can be reading this.

Answer Time!!!: 1.Pudding and Gell
2.Frisky and Goo
3.Soon-to-be Zeda and Hurricane
4.Miles and Audrey
5.Fade and Everyone!!!:)

Yes, and? What did I say that was offensive? Me suggesting a gay couple is wrong for children to read? There are commercials on TV with gay couples. Gay couples in shows. All 50 states have legalized gay marriage, but me suggesting a gay couple is wrong. There is nothing wrong with being gay. Children won't be like 'hmm im gay now!' because they read that. You cant decide if you're gay, and it doesn't rub off on people. I can't believe you're trying to cover up 'gayness', even though it's almost 100% accepted, or at least noticed, in this century. So guess what! Im not going to take it down a notch, i'll take it up one.

And to any children reading this; there is nothing wrong with being gay. Be who you are. Like who you like. It will take a while to realize who you are though, so don't jump to conclusions. Just go with lifes flow until you find the person that makes you happiest. :) I always tell myself one thing: It doesn't matter what you do or who you love. As long as its not hurting anyone and you're happy with it, do it!

Well, Pudding would probably say Frisky, and Frisky would say Pudding. Gel and Goo probably also consider each other as besties. Audrey would likely say Miles, but Miles would probably find a way around the question, unless he was taped to the wall. I think Speedy and Fade would consider each other best friends. Zeda would probably say Frisky. Clone is pretty hard to guess. Hurricane is also hard, but I think he'd say Speedy or Fade.

As for the thing with suffering characters, making them suffer just because, isn't something I enjoy. The bad things make the good things so much better, so when there is no good, the bad seems pretty meaningless. Even in Saw, the character's suffering had meaning, IIRC. The horror genre would probably be considered an exception to making your character's suffering having a purpose in the story, but I don't think that's the case.

Some Speedy and Pudding action going on possibly with the, "Best friend," topic. But can it be one sided? As for an example, what if Pudding thinks Speedy is her best friend but Clone and Speedy are? Or Pudding doesn't even feel that way?? My this is very confusing... O.o

Hes just an innocent bab and must be protected.
Also, @That Random Guy, nothing NeedForSpeed-y said nothing that children need to be protected from. Same-sex marriage and relationships are now a BIG thing, and they're going to run into it sooner or later.

@juicidalParadox I'm pretty sure that's what Hetrea God meant, so that'd most likely be a yes. If not, then sorry for bad info.

@Needrorspeedy: I'm not saying I'm Against it, I'm just saying that some younger kids might not know what it means, and some parents might not like the fact that their, I don't know, ^-year old even
knows the Word. They'd be banned from this website and there are less views. I'm not saying wha you said was Offensive, but parents might.

Poor speedy;(

Look, I am, REALLY sorry. I knew that this situation was supposed to be sad, and I wasn't thinking when I commented. I didnt even type my name. I just... don't know. I'm sorry. It bothers me to no end when I do something stupid like this, but when I don't think of something for a while, it just comes out all stupid. I'm sorry.
