I think the only other update really worth mentioning is that I was pretty right on how I'd perceive Hamilton (the musical). I can understand why others appreciate it but don't really care much for it myself, to the extent that analyzing it has become tedious for me
That said, I'm only starting the second Act, so maybe something will change.
But overall I lean towards a story being told like Romance of the Three Kingdoms. Unfortunately or not. Maybe it might be a neutral thing.

I think I really just have one note on the overall plot and it's

I wonder if the fandom shipped Drina and the Keeper? I found it interesting how she actually apologizes for having to fight them, and obviously she delays it and makes empty threats all the way 'til level 40. Honestly, I feel bad for her. (She's more of a jerk in the original stories iirc. She's unreasonably nice to the Keeper and it's confusing (: )

Oh yeah, also, the Keeper became completely immune to all attacks (from her and her spirit animal) halfway through the fight, and somehow that angsted and amused me. Reminds me of the reactive evolution power, while simultaneously making me imagine that Drina couldn't continue mustering the will to attack them so everything she and her spirit animal did just. Missed.
Meanwhile, the Keeper beating her up as she's curled into a ball:

I finished the SA game lol.
40 levels, 9 days. Which goes to show how little commitment the game really needs as long as you understand how to get through it. I only played a little every night, sporadically too. 
The boss fights were nowhere as hard as I remembered (if they were even hard at all), so maybe I got better at gameplay? In any case, I can't level up any more without logging in (and can't login because the login system no longer exists), so it's just gonna be a permanent level 40 from now on.
Nostalgia really does make me do stuff lol. Plus procrastination manipulation.

Anyways, this is a reminder for me to take screenshots and notes before I forget to login for too long and everything resets again. I technically used a character and it was so fun. Idk, characters are always more fun to imagine than self-inserts when it comes to games lol

Oh also some headcanons so we don't end up ignoring everyone else in favor of South and Solar (note: My problem xD)
Also would you mind if we call them the Duo Bros? It's so cringe but xD reminds me of Nintendo too lol

-Decrescendo looks like a nerd but doesn't actually understand health too well. He gets along with Solar and South because he bribes them with candy/sweets (while not really understanding that he shouldn't do that) and the trio just looks so weird
-Solar will pick Vestige up, which annoys her (though also she kinda likes it xD).
-He'll also throw her
-I imagine when Vestige grows up she'll feel the urge to give relationship advice to the guys, which makes their appeal to potential romantic interests even worse because Vestige absolutely does not know what she's talking about
-Vestige, Solar, and South generally get along well but would brawl for a cup(?) of McDonald's french fries
-> Btw none of them actually have any taste when it comes to fast food too
-These three will literally inhale a cake
-I imagine that they actually like playing all types of board games but won't admit it. Solar, for example, will pull out a sword in the middle of Twister (for some reason that's also impressive lol idk) (also is this even a board game lol, I meant like general family-friendly games but was thinking board games when I typed the idea out)
-Someone in the trio (which also needs a cringe name maybe, though it depends on if "Epics" includes Tranquility or not) is scared of dogs and I dunno who it is
-> Idk I don't think it's Solar. Or maybe he's scared of them but acts convincingly enough to make it seem like he doesn't (but either way he's dumb enough to pick a fight with a big dog, like bruh)

Sorry if these all make no sense. I came up with all of 'em on the fly xD so they're probably bad quality

That's an outcome. The only outcome that isn't one is if someone gets between them, in which case they will try fighting that fight forever until an outcome is achieved
They feel like people who constantly bicker over who's stronger but trust each other in battle lol, it's weird. but they actually both kinda suck, at least atm xD like idk about South but Solar is stupid enough to go after his sunglasses if they're knocked off in the middle of an all-out brawl

Btw I think realistically speaking their powers are to regrow teeth. Or again this might just be Solar. If his teeth aren't literally rooted to his skull I can't see how he still has them.

Some corrections

One, technically not my mistake, but Ma Sanniang is 31 lmiao does she look 31 in that fanart? Maybe late 20s but that,,,
there's also the entire canonical thing of her being older than the Qijian lol. Even Dada is probably like mid-twenties at most
Also, Doudou is an Aquarius (: I forgot how young he was though lol. He's like a teenage prodigy.

Second actual correction: I just remembered Liu Xuanfeng was impaled by multiple arrows while protecting Dabeng, so the wounds on that fanart don't match up. Therefore: Probably not the right series.
But lemme have my fun, I guess, lol.

I can't relate with keeping torsos out in the open xD, but I guess everyone has their own preferences. (I rush to cover up even chibi torsos lol.)
For me the improvement in the Ruin drawing is most prominent in how emotions are conveyed. The original one was kinda overdramatic and lowkey made it seem funny to me. Like the tears were literally being sprayed, like a garden hose. But I think maybe my sense of humor is just screwed up at the moment lol
Overall, I think I can see why you're not too proud of the redraw, but I will say that you shouldn't be too hard on yourself. The lighting was difficult and you tried your best. Plus redraw opportunities are many in the future.
As for stage wear, I don't really know the terms you're talking about (even emo), but I think Genesis' palette is really nice. I like the legwear they have on and the general palette. Though imo it's more uplifting than emo xD, if that makes sense? Just my view of the vibe.

Last piece reminds me of HPA!Raez and the "SHE IS MY BLOOD!" I.Q. xD that cat is gonna grow up and take out ankles :') lol Solar's sister confirmed

Ongoing » [@Specter] Nagesh and Laurie are heading for the meeting... » November 27, 2022 19:52:26

"Good to hear!" She smiles and clasps her hands together briefly. "I'll need to adjust the prompting later, like how many incorrect attempts are permitted and the initial instructions, but I'm glad it works nicely! Thanks, Laurie!"
She seems really happy about this, but then again, she really does get excited about most anything.
Nagesh is thinking back about previous points mentioned in the meeting. He seems to have somehow guessed that Chiyoko will have him try it out later, which is impressive seeing as she hasn't changed anything about her demeanor, posture, or really anything that would indicate her thoughts.

It was pretty good though. Not perfect but nothing is perfect

Love the hypothetical moment where grown-up Solar (who hypothetically is still alive and is somehow no longer as stupid) realizes what South was initially gonna do in their first meeting lol xD

Seems like the perfect opportunity to mention that my recurring thought for the past few days has been that the Alternate are good (likely Lawful Good for the majority), but if Nagesh in that one dream had straight out killed Zouken (and yes Shu-san can also do that) and stuffed his body in a bag, the other Alternate would just help, and that just kills me for some reason
Like no one talks throughout the entire process from the beginning of the beat-up to the evidence incineration and for some reason that heals my soul

Dada appreciation! It's funny to me that his name is Dada and he does become a dad by the end of the series (very nice)
He's the oldest of the Qijian (I think), so I think he probably does look like a xianxia man. But it also goes with his emotional nature. He prioritizes his family (his wife at first, the love of his life) over his destiny, in contrast to the younger Qijian (or at least some of them, like Shali), so really he's quite far away from a cultivator. Cultivators have their emotions more in check, while he's a feelings guy. I like the irony, if you can't tell.

https://i.pinimg.com/564x/99/dc/b9/99dcb956e26355179dd2e1a6e1c56aa9.jpg

Probably the most iconic pair of enemies in the series, especially since Hei Xiaohu is Hongmao's antithesis in some ways.
https://i.pinimg.com/564x/b8/1b/1b/b81b1bf91f031188f5daf749c1097af0.jpg

This image is also interesting. I think they never really fought all-out like that in the series, so this is almost startling to see. 
Though after I saw this image I saw some pretty cursed art. Like man, I don't mind LGBT+ ships, but in this case it blatantly goes against the point. Censorship aside, QXZ is very...straightforward in the relationship circles. So. Lol
Also I just realized, where is Tiaotiao appreciation. I've only seen one art piece with him in it and his face was shrouded lol

Now for a series of spoilers/key moments in the series

https://i.pinimg.com/564x/28/01/eb/2801eb21cd7907d0736adc07f5bd80a9.jpg

Starting off on a lighter note. This is Lantu's first encounter with Dada (lol I know the names are weird but this was a kids' show)
I really like the mysteriousness around Dada (referencing the role he occupies) and the general scenery. It encapsulates the original moment very well.
https://i.pinimg.com/564x/6f/45/06/6f4506e0ad59eaa8740311fd12d0ffb0.jpg

Now we go darker.
This is the only fanart I've seen of Ma Sanniang, and I really do hope that means everyone hates her guts
This is the scene after the waterfall trial where she finally gets the real Ziyun sword. Shali is temporarily brought out of her brainwashed state, so you can see her reacting to this entire ordeal. Honestly this makes me so freaking angry, I hate this bastard.
https://i.pinimg.com/564x/48/83/45/488345279bf405307537e732a97e0c5f.jpg

Shali being comforted by Lantu after they attempt to unite the three swords and fail because Shali's arm has been disabled thanks to a certain bastard. This is one of the defining moments of Shal

https://i.pinimg.com/564x/f5/c2/8b/f5c28bee7395641c79183c1d06a90ce1.jpg

I like this interpretation of Hei Xiaohu. He looks childish and is cute. Though I wonder how the artist would draw his later scenes. :] (jk btw I'm pretty sure this is intended to be more fluffy. The real him is so freaking dramatic lol)
https://i.pinimg.com/564x/65/c5/1d/65c51d415c73cded198a564d1bae52d3.jpg

I don't ship the two of them, but I can see why people would. Hei Xiaohu isn't as selfless as Hongmao, but he did do a lot for her sake (while simultaneously being a threatening villain). So I think this work is nice. It would probably be something Hei Xiaohu would imagine, and I think it shows off his more innocent side well, seeing as how lovestruck he's reacting. In terms of love, he's rather pure; it's just that his intentions and actions all meld together to form his motivations, not just his feelings.

You watch QXZ, you ship Lantu and Hongmao. You can maybe ship Hei Xiaohu and Lantu as a side ship (though I would not concur), but you ship these two. No exceptions.

See? Even their friends ship them.
I think QXZ really makes a good example of how you can do romance without romance. We don't see Lantu and Hongmao canonically kiss or whatever, but you're just led to shipping them because you see how much they care for each other and what they do because they care for each other.

This might seem slightly OOC but my thoughts on Solar's design are as follows:

"HE COULD'VE BEEN A HANDSOME GUY AT THE BEACH, BUT NOOOO! NOOOOOOOOOOO!"
I am in agony (: why does he look so stupid and why does that still fit with my impressions of how my personas should be :')

Anyways those thoughts are there 'cause obviously I have nothing to show you. Like could I if I had no self-awareness? Yes. But I do have some. So.
South looks like he could be Alma's kid xD
Tranquility could kill someone with a feather duster
Also I agree, Vestige looks like she's a guy xD lol

Speaking of extensive violence, I just realized that Hei Xiaohu's character is intentionally made so that he regresses as a character as he becomes an actual villain. His debut has him killing a follower basically because of a tantrum, an action that fits the mold of an actual villain but mostly just showcases his immaturity (and immorality, though again it's more connected to his "innocence" due to him having his father as his role model). And by the end of the series, he once again kills a follower, but this time it's because he's actually morphed into the kind of person he didn't want to be. In between those two points, he's trying to become more righteous like his mother wanted (and in a way, technically doing it for Lantu's sake as well, trying to leave a good impression on her), but his goals from the start wind up getting to him at the end, and he regresses all of his actions in between the two points to become the person he didn't want to be. Only for the sake of his goal.
Yikies, huh.
