Some day, they really need to make a game that's all about their NPCs or something. I just love them so much! Especially Doc, too adorable for words. I mean I love the pinatas and all, and the journals were an interesting feature, but...I sort of feel like out of every single character they have, Leafos and her family are kind of the most boring ones to choose. (Dastardos is, of course, excluded from this.)
THAT IS EXACTLY HOW and I feel! There was just so much potential for the NPCs and I'm so bummed Rare didn't do anything with them. I think the Storybook was my favourite part of the game, and I hated that they never continued it in the second one
Tori and I have been working on our own 'fanon' for quite a while now. She's finally back into writing for it, and I'm happy as a clam illustrating her stuff.
Ahhh that would be too good to be true. There's just so much story in the game that can be gleaned from dialogue. Wish there were more cutscenes or something. I really loved the opening for TIP and was convinced the entire game'd be like that ;___;
I LOVE HER FANFICS. I'm her beta reader so I get to see them first. She and I agree on a lot of things, especially on the human characters. They need more attention! I illustrate her stuff and it's all great fun.
Ah yes, Sturgeon's Law. 90% of everything is crap and all that. Oh well; here's hoping you'll like mine, and if you don't I promise I won't hold it against you. The thing with VP that there is so little fanstuff as it is and so little story in the game and yet such a great cast and setting that it just begs for stories to be written about it, I think.
Like I said, take all the time you need! I'm pretty busy myself so I understand.
