Mewtwo


I’m actually loving Mewtwo this time around. He feels like a much more powerful character in this game. Confusion has a larger area of effect. Disable needs more range, though. 

I have been using him pretty often; he might even be my second main, now. I just love that he has a reflect move and a way to spam projectiles against counter-characters.

Lately, I’ve been trying to learn Rosalina because I hate her. I’ve been doing For Glory One-on-one battles, and she’s always the character I lose to. So, I’m trying to learn her so that I know how to beat her. The only problem is that when I use her online I win. Rosalina needs to be nerfed. Either Luma needs to be easier to kill or else Luma needs to share a damage meter with Rosalina, because Luma’s absorption of hits is ridiculous.

I participated in my first tournament, and I’m happy to report that I didn’t come in last. I didn’t do well, either. Haha. I’m somewhere in the middle, and that’s good enough for me. The big problem is that I still haven’t found a main to replace my Ice Climbers, yet.

I am happy that they’re doing DLC, though. Lucas is awesome. Mii Fighter costumes are rad. I hope we get more of everything.

Creatures and Monsters of The Unraveler - PART 2

My novel is filled with crazy beasts of my design. On this side project I'm working on, I'm creating nice artwork and describing some of the lesser-seen monsters of my world. So, to show a few of the creatures, I'm compiling a best-of monster list of creatures that exist in my novel.

Click the names to go to the full post about each creature!
(...or start at Part 1)



Munlo

Description: Munlo are one of the most eaten creatures in the Unraveler universe. They are two-legged lizard-like creatures that are about the size of a pig. They have a taste comparable to bacon, however more chewy. They have a main of white fur along their spines, webbed feet for ease of navigating rivers, and a slithering tail that can latch on to the surroundings. The fangs are defensive, and only rarely are able to kill anyone. The teeth within their mouths are no more dangerous than the teeth of a toothbrush. They are aggressive to deal with, however, the ease at which they reproduce keeps them too valuable of a food source to not use.



Szip

Description: Szip originally evolved from living on the hides of giant creatures with rocky husks. Back then, they would use their needle mouths to feed off of blood. After the rocky giant creatures went extinct, however, szip addapted to live in the mountains. Now, they tend to simply go after smaller insects and small mammals for food, but are more often prey themselves (and prey for each other!).


Latcher

Description: The Bull Latcher is the largest (and scariest) of the three, and is the featured image at the top of this post.  It has evolved teeth and extended spines. It tends to latch on the biggest creature it can find, usually onto animals the size of whales. The Bull Latcher is about as tall as a human. Bull Latchers are the most aggressive, and if a giant predator is threatening its host, it will detach and attack the predator and then reattach to its host if both have survived.


Bewildered Vat

Description: The Bewildered Vat is a very strange creature. It is a slow liquid in a hardened outer shell. The liquid is acidic and poisonous, and it can launch bubbles rapidly to attack. It eats insects and dissolves them into its core. As strange as it may appear, it actually is fairly intelligent, having a soupy brain that is comparable to a sloth's. People have given this creature several nicknames, including, Death's Soup, The Living Cauldron, and the Reaching Pot.



Arbuscula


Description: The Arbuscula is a sentient tree creature. It has four spiderlike legs and a great maw of a mouth. Some of the leaves are light-sensitive, which give the arbuscula a sense of sight. Arbuscula come in a variety of appearances and several different tree-breeds have been discovered. Although they are very hostile, they will often sit quietly and wait until their enemies leave. Any small-sized prey, however, will be killed if the risk is low enough.

Part 1

Moon

I took a few pictures of the moon with my camera one morning. The sky was just too creepycool not to.

Lately I've been thinking of the moon. She just doesn't get how badly it's going for her. The sun feeds into her insanity. The sun shines and smiles and gives in. The moon learns the love the darkness, to shut the door, to lock herself in. The sun complies, because the sun enjoys a quiet sky. The moon makes waves, though, sends the tide over the docks. The sun complies. The sun cut a slot to put food under the door. The sun changes the moon's chamber pot and stocks her fallout shelter's minifridge. The waves, the Earth, we can do nothing. Outer space is just not our place. The stars are too far to hear. They dot the sky like ants and do not see. The clouds come, and you know the storm follows. The sun hides and waits it out and does nothing. Go back inside.
