I've been stalking this group for a little while now, contemplating whether or not to join (schedule is all over the place at the moment, but might think about joining when it settles) and I have to say I love the species that you guys have! If you don't mind me curiously asking, but how do you come up with the species and bios for them? I'm not wanting to steal anything, I'm just amazed at them!

Hi anon!

I can’t wait for you to join us, we are always open for new faces!

Ah- I (Admin Minwoo/Wooneke) wrote all the descriptions myself actually :) So thank you a lot!

Some are based on the regular creatures; Vampires, werewolves, witches and so on. But I tried to give most something unique, or dig into the lore to give them something ‘more’. (Like the neurotic personality trait with the vampires. Did you know that old legends say that the best way to hold a vampire back is to spill rice on the ground? They need to pick every grain of rice and count them before they can resume trying to suck your blood. Resulting in them being busy so long they will not notice the sun and burn to death. pretty neat, huh?) 

Others however are my own creations, like the imaginary friends who are created because you have IF’s in the Sims but I wanted them as a race, then came the chesires (name obviously a wink to ‘Alice in Wonderland’) and so on! Musica’s, phoenixes as a shifter race, the Naum and Ixtab races and more…

This is also why I get venomous when people steal my ideas, because I work hard on them and put a lot of work in them. As for how I come up with them- If you would see my room, and the other rooms.. I al literally surrounded by books on the occult, supernatural and pseudo sciences. When I was 8 I got the ‘Vampire encyclopedia’ from my mom, and from there on I kept collecting books and reading them. My main interest lays in UFO’s and aliens (the Naum and Ixtab are based upon eye witness reports and are a mixture of all the good and bad experiences people have said to have had with aliens. I just made up the lore). But I also have many books on other supernatural subjects. 

Next to that I love fantasy and sci fi. I grew up with my mom reading the books from Tolkien to me (including doing the voices of Gandalf, Aragorn etc.) and watching STAR TREK & STAR GATE with me.

Those factors combined and with my huge overflowing fantasy and my love for writing (I study Media, Information and Communication currently at the University of Applied Sciences in Amsterdam) I always have more ideas. Honestly, I have so many more ideas already, but I do not want to add too much to the Insolitus lore. It already confuses people sometimes haha. 

Sorry, I rambled, but I do hope I answered your question!

Love,

I'm just curious, if you don't mind me asking, but where did you find the images that you use for the 'races' page? To show the species.

We have a whole page for that!

✍ MONDAY WRITE CHALLENGE

It is nice if you can corporate the para, selfpara or drabble with your CANON character line but it is not a must, do make sure you make clear if it is canon or not.

The writers challenge is made to receive feedback on your writings style or just have fun.

Challenge #1

Write a selfpara that evolves around the following picture:

Challenge #2

What would your character pick if they could go to one country in the world and live there forever? And what about if they could only read one book for the remainder of their life? Or what movie?

Updated masterlist, now on to the dorms. 

I am going to try to do little checks more often instead of one big check every one/two months. With my heavy schedule little checks should be easier to keep up to date on! :) Sorry for the inconvenience!

I feel like...I should have done this a while ago, but I feel so stuck when I get online (which is rare) I never know what to do with my character anymore. These days I am just taking up space that someone else could probably fill and I don't want to be an inactive blog that just sits and collects dust, so I am going to withdraw from Insolitus for now. If I think up a new muse, then maybe I will come back. Love you IA Family <3 So long, for now!

But we will miss you too much ;;

Be safe honey!
