It has been quite a number of years, hasn't it? I kind of forgot how many years its been. Thank you for the feedback though.
To be fair, I find that's not entirely accurate. The first was abandoned due to it being my first thing on THP and making some pretty big mistakes that I wasn't aware of. Although I suppose the other 2 abandons of 2/2b are right, even if I can't remember the circumstances surrounding that anymore.
That's really the tricky thing, since I kind of want to do RiG, but I also want to try and do something new. That was the original idea behind doing that Teahouse thing, but as always I tend to just jump into ideas and expect that I can flesh out the details as I do it, instead of planning out the things before hand and then writing it.
While writing a new character is something I want to do, I also really do enjoy writing Reina.
It probably isn't, but it does always come back to haunt me. I think part of it is because Reina was a character I very loosely made, and it was more THP creating her I think. I just wrote her, but a lot of her key features were all created by the voting process. She's just a character I have a lot of fond memories of.
Yeah that's a fair point. I don't remember all the specifics I had planned (and a lot of RiG was kind of made up on the fly as I did it), but I still remember some of the general highlights. It would still be odd to write it again after so many years though.
I want to say, thank you to all so far for their feedback, it is pretty helpful.
I will admit, I think a big part of my wanting to 'finish' RiG, is because I don't want the character to just kind of wither on the vine. Part of this is because when I write now, I really want the character to have some kind of artwork, and I'm a stickler for ensuring OCs have actual original artwork, instead of taking a character from some other franchise and rebranding it or something.
So it just turns out that Reina Roots is a character I have artwork of, which makes her very easy and accessible to write. Ichidou Isuke is another, although I still really need to figure out what her power/ability is since she's a native Gensokyoian.
I remember having a Dragon character at one point as well, come to think of it. Although having an actual Dragon protagonist in Gensokyo has its own interesting wrinkles.
I have some other OCs, but as they aren't created with Touhou in mind, I don't really want to use them and slap them into a setting they weren't created for.
All that aside, I also think I just really want to try and get myself to write again. It is a bit of forcing on my part, but... I can't really get anywhere if I don't at least try to force myself to do something, I think.
