Another shortish post of Shadows and Trolls

First up, a WIP of Shinju's and Kresnik's Shadows.

Now... some random scenes from logs and a height comparison. I really need to try to keep relative heights in mind...

Some cursed!Shinju doodles, kind of inspired by the AU post in... UA. Haha.

Shinju Troll basic concept. I may end up changing this.

Troll Ryoko and her lusus, Aurora the wyvern. The WIP is here.

I wanted a new avatar for my Tegaki, so I did something simple and cute.

Well, time to do that double meme and study for my Latin test some more.

Kresnik is not impressed with his Shadow, at all. 8T

At least your Shadow doesn't want to kill everyone.

Because drugging people and beating them up is so much better.

You're wrong... even if your Shadow hurts others... at least he cares about something other than himself.

[Turns to instruction manual in how to deal with Shinju Gouka]
hellfire_gouka: (srsly)

[Which chapter? 8Ta]

[He looks like he's depressed again, so chapter 4]
hellfire_gouka: (WTF)

*... what is going on*

[identity profile] gene-driver.livejournal.com 2010-09-27 02:03 am (UTC)(link)
[Self-loathing seems to be the cause this time]
hellfire_gouka: (awkward)

[personal profile] hellfire_gouka 2010-09-27 02:09 am (UTC)(link)

The second most common Shinju in depression, the self-loathing variety. First off: Why is he hating himself? Has he done something to harm you or others? If he's harmed you, but you've moved on, the best thing to do is forgive him. If others, you should try to get him to talk to that party and convince them to forgive him (or even better, hand them this guide). Or, has he failed to do something he thought he should have? If everything turned out alright, remind him of this. If not, reassure him that everyone makes mistakes, and that he'll succeed next time. Perhaps he is demeaning himself, saying he's a terrible person? Remind him of his good points, tell him that everyone has their faults, and that faults don't define a person.]

*... feels like someone is talking about him behind his back*

[....This is ridiculous, why should he even do this. It's not like Shinju's feelings matter in the end.


Everyone has their faults. [Right, reading straight of this book]
hellfire_gouka: (clouded eyes)

[personal profile] hellfire_gouka 2010-09-27 02:19 am (UTC)(link)
[Looks at him]

... I... I g-guess... you're right. [Looks down slightly, but seems a little less... depressed]

[identity profile] gene-driver.livejournal.com 2010-09-27 02:24 am (UTC)(link)
[That's some progress he supposes]
hellfire_gouka: (weary)

[personal profile] hellfire_gouka 2010-09-27 02:27 am (UTC)(link)
[puts a hand over the scar on his arm, looking to the side] ... thanks.

[identity profile] gene-driver.livejournal.com 2010-09-27 02:42 am (UTC)(link)
[...Let's see, he seems lacking in self-confidence now]

hellfire_gouka: (down)

[personal profile] hellfire_gouka 2010-09-27 02:44 am (UTC)(link)

Well, it looks like you're dealing with a fairly common Shinju. The best thing you can do at this point is NOT to say he's useless (See Chapter 2.4). Encouragement by saying you and/or others need him is recommended. Reaffirming your friendship with him (if you are indeed his friend--if not, why are you reading this?) is also helpful. Point out what he CAN do. Dismiss what he can't. As mentioned in Chapter 1.5, interaction with animals will generally help bring his mood up a notch.]

*... wonders what else to say*

[identity profile] gene-driver.livejournal.com 2010-09-27 02:56 am (UTC)(link)

...You're not useless and others need you.
hellfire_gouka: (huh)

[personal profile] hellfire_gouka 2010-09-27 03:00 am (UTC)(link)
*Blinks. That came out of nowhere.* E-eh?

[identity profile] gene-driver.livejournal.com 2010-09-27 03:01 am (UTC)(link)
I stated that you're not useless and I'm reaffirming my friendship with you.
hellfire_gouka: (hopeful)

[personal profile] hellfire_gouka 2010-09-27 03:04 am (UTC)(link)
[Oh Kresnik, always going for the direct method.]

Our... o-our frendship...?

[identity profile] gene-driver.livejournal.com 2010-09-27 03:09 am (UTC)(link)
Yes, in addition, you can navigate and function well despite being blind.
hellfire_gouka: (weary)

[personal profile] hellfire_gouka 2010-09-27 03:11 am (UTC)(link)
[Maybe you should be a little more subtle]

... Kresnik... why are you saying all of this? Are you just trying to make me feel better?

[identity profile] gene-driver.livejournal.com 2010-09-27 03:17 am (UTC)(link)

I'm attempting to raise your confidence.

[identity profile] gene-driver.livejournal.com 2010-09-27 03:20 am (UTC)(link)
Because you appeared depressed.
hellfire_gouka: (weary)

[personal profile] hellfire_gouka 2010-09-27 03:22 am (UTC)(link)
But why are you trying to change that?

[identity profile] gene-driver.livejournal.com 2010-09-27 03:29 am (UTC)(link)
Being depressed inhibits your ability to function well.
hellfire_gouka: (hidden)

[personal profile] hellfire_gouka 2010-09-27 03:30 am (UTC)(link)
... so, you just want me to be able to "function well".

[identity profile] gene-driver.livejournal.com 2010-09-27 03:34 am (UTC)(link)
I'm certain that others wouldn't want you to remain depressed either.

[...Did he do something wrong?]

[Sighs. So much for this instruction manual]

Don't worry, mun should have it typed up tomorrow or something.]
