I probably should have posted this journal a few days ago, but oh well.
To anyone who hasn't been following me or my antics, I'm out of TBOS-OCT as of said few days ago. Please give your support to the winners, especially Oreramar, who's going to have one heck of a time balancing both her schoolwork and her OCT entry against the wonderful TG-Garfieldo.
Now I said before that I'd promised to talk about Bobu and Ricco's misadventures after I'm done with the OCT, but then it kind of occurred to me: what if I made a novel out of my TBOS entries, the publishable kind of novel? Of course, I would have to replace the characters that belonged to other awesome people here on DeviantArt with my own, and change a lot of key aspects so that I won't plagiarize RobinRone's awesome ideas. Not to mention all the trimming I would have to do to make each "round" a manageable length. In all honesty, making a novel is a whole different beast, as you don't need to worry about giving appropriate screen time to one's "opponents" and basically making each "round" stand out on its own in an episodic manner as instead of adding to the overall plot of the story.
Of course, I could always share my plans for the theoretical Round 5 and 6, but then I'd be potentially spoiling the ending of a publishable idea. What do you guys think? (Of course, I can always privately share said plans to those who still want to know, I just don't want to publicize it.)
In the meantime, there's still a few leftover TBOS-related stuff I still need to put up, such as the Holiday Exchange thing a while back, and some pseudo-giftart for the awesome Oreramar.
Hope everyone else is doing fine out there.
