I must not know a thing

Wed Mar 25, 2015, 6:50 PM
I love it when I have people who wanna remind me about shit I already know.

It's like a good number of people just think I live under some rock, or in some cave, and I can't possibly understand the far out concept that they wish to beat into my head.

You the...

Neltharion is Deathwing's name!



Neltharion the Black by Ghostwalker2061

Father of the Black Dragonflight by Ghostwalker2061



No!  Really?  Really?  Deathwing really is Neltharion?!  What a concept!

And here I thought the stories I was writing was about some mentally ill puppy named Mr. Squishy, stuck in a sad sagging cardboard box left out in the rain to sit and whimper...being ignored to by those callous humans walking by.

I had no idea that Mr. Squishy was this powerful godlike being who was responsible for the near total destruction of an entire planet under the control of Cthulhu and Pals.

Oh, and Sargeras is NOT Tirek!

Really?  I didn't know that.

Next thing you guys are gonna tell me that the sky is blue and the grass is green.

Because I don't think my fragile, simple mind could ever handle the concept of the sky being blue and the grass being green.

I think that might really shatter my understanding of reality.

Oh, please...please don't reveal THAT to me.

The only reason why this still happens is because people don't really pay attention.  They think that they can get into a conversation and automatically know what it is a person is discussing...when really simple reading would have solved the problem.

So, please, unless you honestly want me to label you as Mr. or Mrs. No-Shit Sherlock...go back and read the informative stuff first before assuming that I don't know what you know.

Especially on a fan drawing.  Usually I draw things I already know about.  

So, I think considering I have a whole folder dedicated to Neltharion's pics as well as a folder dedicated to the story I'm writing on him...I hope to all of you that it's obvious I know who it is I'm talking about.

Shenseiju the Sacred Beasts

Mon Mar 23, 2015, 2:42 AM
Aka the Dragon Aspects.

Adding more flavor into Pandaria.  I even decided to have them use their own language for who the Aspects are.

First off, yeah, I'm using Japanese rather than Chinese because well...I know Japanese better than Chinese.  

Some of the actual Pandaren language survived even the slavery.  The Pandaren once had their own actual language, but when they were enslaved by the Mogu, the Mogu forced them to speak their dialect of Titan.

So, what resulted was an odd mixture of Pandaren, which is a mixture of mostly Mandarin Chinese and Japanese and Mogu Titan.

So, important words would still be written in original Pandaren.

Such as the Sacred Beasts, their word translated as Dragon Aspects.

However, I modeled the Dragon Aspects after the Japanese Elements, which is similar to the Classical Greek Elements.  Earth, Air, Fire, Water, and the fifth....which is in Japanese called Void, or really Heaven.

In Greek, or even Pagan beliefs, the fifth is known as the soul or the spirit.

And the reason why I decided to use the Japanese elements rather than the standard Chinese elements...which are Earth, Fire, Water, Wood, Metal...well...Earth and Metal would basically not fit very well, since both are represented by Neltharion himself.

 photo page0_4_zps8wljmcec.jpg

I suppose I could substitute Wind for Wood...in some ways because of Ysera...but really...the Japanese one fits a bit better when it comes to the Aspects.

But the elements aren't the actual elements like they are in the Greek Classics...Fire isn't really Fire in Japanese elements...nor is Earth really earth, and so on...

The elements in Japanese myths are metaphysical representations of the body and the mind, as well as the mood.  


So, I'll start with Earth, since it is at the base.  Earth in Japan is the foundation.  Makes sense.  It's Earth.  Same with Neltharion.

Neltharion is seen as the pillar which supports the world in Pandaren Myths.  He is called Shugodoju.  The Sacred Beast of Earth.  However, he also has a second name, that of the Great Beast.  Daiyaju.  And the Pandarens have lots of stories about Daiyaju and his wacky adventures through Pandaria.  It's cute.


Father of the Black Dragonflight by Ghostwalker2061


Neltharion represents Earth to them because he became the building blocks upon which they built their empire after they overthrew the Mogu.  Granted as stated in the other journal, Neltharion himself worked in subtle ways but the Pandarens still recognized what he did.

Also, in Pandaren myths, Shugodoju is also the embodiment of matter, all things material.  Which goes back to our friendly Special Relativity Equation and what Neltharion is a part of that.

So, he's not really the Beast of Earth as much to the Pandaren as he is the Beast of Mass and Matter.

I kinda painted the Pandarens actually having a little bit more of an understanding of who Neltharion was than the rest of the world, which is why they respect him so much.  And because of him, they learned how to manipulate the physical elements, which is earth, fire, air, and water...and they are different from the Metaphysical Elements that the Beasts represent.

Next on the pillar we have Water...the Beast of Water, aka Shugomizuju.  And this is Ysera.

Ysera the Awakened Dreamer by Ghostwalker2061


Ysera is associated with plants, nature, ecosystems, and dreams. Dreams are formless, fluid things, whether they are still waters or torn by storms of nightmare.

Just like the sea is torn by the hurricanes that batter it.

And plants are usually associated with water. Water also has a soothing presence, which seems to fit how Ysera is the most.

Next is fire, and it's Alexstrasza, and most of you are going: "No fucking shit!"


Alexstrasza Life Binder by Ghostwalker2061

So, yeah, like the obvious of Earth being for Neltharion, Fire is Alexstrasza.

And it fits again like Neltharion.  Her fire can both create and destroy.  Can heal and kill.  So, no brainer there.

And often, in various myths outside of Judeo-Christian beliefs that fire is the devil...Fire is often the representation of life.

So, the Shugohiju, aka Beast of Fire is Alexstrasza. Because fucking Life-Binder, guys.

So, even to the Pandaren, this again was a no brainer.

Next!

Wind...the Shugofuju is the Beast of Wind.  Which is Nozdormu.

Doctor Whozdormu by Ghostwalker2061


Wind is often associated with to freedom of movement, growth over time, and experience could fit Nozdormu. And he he's very elusive and evasive, hard to pin down. 

Wind is also often associated with change, like the line of "the winds of change."  Nozdormu is a being that flows like the sands of time.  And wind is again associated with the desert, which is again Nozdormu's home.  The Caverns of Time is in the desert where Uldum and Tanaris are located.

And Nozdormu's favorite motif, his calling card is the hourglass, which has sands that empty from the top to the bottom.  He often appears in a fierce torrent of wind and sand as well, and disappears in much the same way.

So the Pandaren take a good note of that and assigned him with his Metaphysical Element of Wind.

And the last one, but not least, is Shugokugeki, aka the Beast of the Void...or the Beast of Cosmic Energy.

Malygos the Spell-Weaver Redesign by Ghostwalker2061


And that is Malygos.  And no, I'm not saying also Kalecgos.  Because for one thing, the Pandarens, besides those who are from the Wandering Isle, know Shugokugeki is Malygos.  They aren't informed of his demise.

The Void in Japanese Element Mythology is associated all things that are energy.  Which again has to do with Special Relativity and Malygos being the other side of that equation.  Because in this universe, Einstein created god dragons.

But that is not the main reason why the Pandaren chose him to be the Beast of Void.  

The main reason why is because of Malygos' lively humor.  Void is associated with power, creativity, spontaneity, and inventiveness.  Which pretty much spells out Malygos prior to the Sundering.

Void and that of the concept of Ki Energy (yes that Ki Energy), is often associated with vigor.

Malygos himself was probably the second Aspect who visited Pandaria often after the Pandarens established their new government.  Neltharion probably no doubt showed Malygos a lot of what he had done for Pandaria, the mountains he created, the fact that he was able to teach a culture how to respect the land and that his presence did influence their lives.

So, pretty much Malygos was just as respected and loved by the Pandarens like Neltharion.  

So, there we go.

One thing I have to say about my version of Pandaria.

In the rest of the planet, prior to the Sundering...or hell even prior to the Second War, the Dragon Aspects were rarely seen.  They did their work mostly in private and behind the scenes...under the noses of the mortals who walked upon Kalimdor.

Seeing a dragon was a rare sight in on itself.  

But I often wanted to make the point that perhaps the reason why a lot of shit happened on Azeroth, was because the Aspects themselves refused to at least educate the mortals on how to properly take care of the world.  

Mostly because the Aspects felt that such interaction was beneath them.  Which explains Ysera being rather snappy if not outright condescending to Malfurion when he spoke with her during the making of the Dragon Soul.

Because pretty much the mortals were like onto an amoeba to the Aspects.  And how many times have you attempted to lower yourself down to even communicate with them?

But because of their aloofness, the problems that happened during Azeroth's recent history, such as the Nexus War, were caused because  of lack of dialog between the Dragonflights and mortals.

Hell if Malygos had really done his job right, and maybe teach the mortals to be respectful of magic, the Nexus War probably wouldn't have happened.  Hell, maybe the Sundering would have never happened, I dunno.

But I wanted to build Pandaria up to be this place where what was normal for the Aspects, was pushed aside.  

Neltharion got involved, in of course more subtle ways, but still got involved.  He was a teacher, not someone who held the Pandaren's hands every step of the way.

He instilled lessons about respecting the land and the physical elements and these lessons are still being taught today.  Hell, Math Nut deduced it was one of the reasons why even after the Pandaren Empire was dissolved the moment Shaohoa became the mists...that the Pandarens were under any sort of threat of instability for losing their main body of government.

They were more than capable of holding themselves up despite Shaohao's absence.  Whereas anywhere else on Azeroth, this would have led to anarchy.

The Pandarens could make the change from having an Emperor to not having one rather smoothly.

Hell it's probably one of the many reasons why the Pandarens could remember the Aspects so fondly was because they were a part of their lives.  Whereas everyone else remembers that Alexstrasza was that one dragon who was made into a baby factory for the Horde, Neltharion was that one dragon who like to make life miserable for everyone else, and Malygos was that one dragon who started a genocidal war because the mortals weren't following the magical rules that they didn't know existed.

My two cents, I guess.

And Garrosh Laughs Silently

Thu Mar 19, 2015, 3:09 AM
Here is something :iconrenndor: and I have been messing around with....

The Great Beast and Neltharion, and how its gonna soon all come crashing down upon him.

Basically take a huge legend and place it upon the shoulders of Mr. Squishy, and watch that legend squish him flat.  

Because everyone is gonna be expecting Neltharion to be this noble, stately, great and powerful god-like creature.

When in reality, he's so far away from that as if being the Great Beast and being the failure that is Neltharion is like being in the Delta Quadrant when really you're trying to get back home, and there's about 75 years between them...not to mention 90 thousand light years.

As in, they are so far apart, they may never meet.

But Garrosh is gonna have fun with this.  Because well...it's Garrosh.  It's what he does.


He just loves to be there to watch everyone put Nel on a pedistal and then when he screws up, he falls so hard...the Sundering would just look like a minor earthquake in LA.

Father of the Black Dragonflight by Ghostwalker2061

So, here is the idea....




Garrosh is on-record as being against Nel, or "Deathwing", as is most of the rest of the Horde. So it'd not be credible for him or the general Horde population to advance that viewpoint directly. He'd have to advance that aim indirectly, via subterfuge. 

One REALLY good vehicle to doing so would be Baine. Since Baine's faction already has a positive, rather...zealous...view of Nel, they'd probably latch onto the legend of the Great Beast, and promote it more widely. Even attach nigh-religious connotations to it. They'd amplify and raise the populace's expectations of Nel higher and higher.

So if Garrosh can maneuver Bain and his faction into the right place, and have agents supply the right prompting and context, he may be able to get Bain's faction to advance this plan automatically. Since Bain's faction would think it their own plan, in Nel's interest, and their "duty" to the heart of the world.

Similarly, the Celestials would want the populace to respect & revere Nel as the Great Beast again. They'd announce him as such, give the populace their word that Nel is the Great Beast. Further, they'd want to make Nel look good, so they'd speak up his (past) accomplishments, grow and amplify the legend further. And that'd play into Garrosh's hands perfectly.

Garrosh can even fan the flames further by deliberately setting his viewpoint (Nel is a monster) against Baine & the Celestials' viewpoint. This creates a false dichotomy, and generates a conflict that makes people take sides between the two offered choices. That intensifies the feelings all around, and spreads the news & conflict more widely.

Nel screwing up would then pull the rug out from Garrosh's' opponents, strengthening Garrosh's' narrative, and convincing many to switch to his side now that there is "proof" they were lied to. Proof that they can only trust Garrosh, not Bain, the Celestials, Shaohao, etc.

Garrosh would also hope that Nel's screwing up would blow back hard on Baine, either weakening Bain's faction, convincing them that their views of Nel were wrong, or both. That'd make a potential adversary weaker, and it might bring them back into the fold with Garrosh if it convinced them that they were wrong.

The Black's Rage by Ghostwalker2061




More generally, Nel isn't going to be able to live up to the Great Beast's legend; it's bigger than he is. And he's technically only half of what made up the Great Beast anyway; the other half is in Deathwing. Indeed, most of the core competency of Nel 1.0 is actually in Deathwing, not Nel. 

Nel also has huge problems with Social Anxiety, fear of being judged, fear of failure, etc. It only makes him more stressed and emotional, more prone to failure. Effectively, the chasm between the legend and reality means he has a lot further to fall-- and he knows it.

Those that were close to Nel 1.0, like the Celestials and Shaohao, will also fall prey to the legend & their memory of Nel 1.0. They'll interpret him in that light instinctively, since that's who they know and remember. Further, they never experienced any "partitioning" of Nel, or any "parasite". It's just something they've heard about-- like an old injury of Nel's. They don't have the context or information to know otherwise, and they can't really get access to much of that context given how complex Nel's problems are and how out of the loop they are. 

Garrosh's Prisoner by Ghostwalker2061



The trials the Celestials and Shaohao give to Adventurers to "overcome" their Sha emotions won't work at all for Nel. Nel's problems aren't at all like the simple problems the Celestials are used to dealing with in mortals. They won't know where to even begin.

As noted previously, Nel embodies both the virtues of the celestials and the flaws of the Sha. And the same is true for Deathwing, who has both sets of virtues and flaws himself. And these manifest in very complex ways in both personalities. On top of that, the virtues aren't always good, and the flaws aren't always bad in reality. 

For instance, one of the big components of the Black Aspect's fall was their feeling of duty, their fortitude in defending the world. And for both personalities, that virtue has lead to some dark places, and made them shoulder tremendous burdens. 

Sorting out this complex, chaotic mess is beyond anything the Celestials have had to deal with before. Not to mention the fact that Nel's personality only represents half of the problem they're confronting.


Either they no longer believe Nel is the Great Beast, or that the Great Beast is a big lie...or a combination of the two...

One possibility is that the Pandaren reject Nel as the Great Beast, which'd only make Nel feel more like a failure relative to his past.


Another possibility is that it proves Nel is the Great Beast, but that the legend of him is a big lie. That would also imply the Sacred Beasts (Aspects and Dragons) are a lie. 

This could be a vehicle for Garrosh to replace that "failed" narrative with his own narrative about what Nel, the Aspects, and the Dragons are-- that they are monsters, enemies of the mortals, of the world. It would also undermine Pandaren culture and worldview, reduce trust in the Celestials, and empower the Sha. And it could make people flock to him, given the "obvious" evidence, and how they were lied too. Further, it would weaken dragonflights in general, and the black and blue dragonflights especially, given their already weak positions.

The Aspects allowed Slavery!

Wed Mar 18, 2015, 4:37 AM
I am hoping that this is a title grabber.  Because oh my god...

Yes, I am even blaming Neltharion for this one.  So, no the Squishy isn't blameless here.

Mostly it has to do with Nel 1.0 and the other Aspects.  Rather than squishy Nel 2.0 who's the broken Woobie we have to hug.

Black in the Circle by Ghostwalker2061



So, I have to beg the question.  When the Mogu enslaved Pandaria, how the fucking hell could the Aspects let that happen?

I knew you were a bitch, Alexstrasza, but I didn't think you were a heartless bitch.

I know I'm gonna be called out about that statement.

But, blech, I don't care.

But one of the things I have to do with this story is fill in a lot of holes left by Blizzard.  And when you're dealing with someone like Neltharion, I have to.

It's the only way I can make sense of it all for the story.

So, let's get this thing started.

Why is Neltharion the Main Character?



One of the main reasons why there's a huge hole in there has to do with the Player Character is a nobody.  The Player Character is not a Dragon Aspect who has been there since the beginning, or one of the Titan Watchers, or a Tol'vir, or a Mogu, or hell, even one of the many cast of main characters in the lore itself.

You as the Adventurer, as I had stated in a previous journal, do not matter in the grand scheme of things, are not really a part of the actual plot of the lore, and cannot really change the lore.

The only thing you can do is do your chores.  Like gather stuff, beat ten of those monsters, send a message to someone...that sort of thing.  At the most, you can run a dungeon and or do a raid...but really, there's not much of the story you either affect nor do you really get.

Which again is why when I took on this project, I wanted to mess around with Neltharion.  Because he can in fact affect the story, and the lore in a sense, and he has done so in the past as Deathwing, or even Nel 1.0.  

Hell, he helped shape the entire planet.  So having a person like that as the main character opens a large door.  It also allows me to really explore just what this place is about.  

And the great thing about him losing his memory is that you get to make this discovery with him.  

But again, Nel is a plot hole filler.  And yeah, a lot of what we're filling is mostly speculation.  But given how little I have to work with anyways, there's really no other way I can really do this.

So that is why the Squishy is here, folks.  He's here to really show us the Azeroth the Player Character doesn't ever see.

The Mogu as Titan Constructs



 photo 580x331xmogu01.jpg.pagespeed.ic.vPb-i3aYkC_zpsqfbiqaz0.jpg

Okay, so here's a big thing I need to handle.  The Mogu.  Who they were, what they were, and what part of the grand scheme of things did they fit.

We don't have much on them.  We do know that they were basically, to put it simply in terms we can understand, worker robots to the Titans.

Think I, Robot, (yes the one with Will Smith), and you'd get the idea.

Hell, they probably weren't on the same level as the Aspects.  If any, they may have been on a lower pecking order given that they were basically mass produced, and mono-gendered.  Which again brings me to think they basically were robotic lifeforms.  Not robots like we would make, but still...yeah.  Robots.

Still begs the question if the Mogu became mortal when they suffered from the Curse of the Flesh, why didn't they die out when they had no females to reproduce with?  Did they reproduce aesexually?  Did they build more of themselves like the concept of self replicating robots?

You know, that's a big plothole that I can't really think around it that much, so I'm just gonna say that the Curse of the Flesh did something else to them. Like...cut them off from the orders of their programmers, or screwed with their primary functions which is why they "devolved" into feudal clans.  

It didn't really change them physically, but it did mess something up.

Their Relationship with the Aspects



Okay, so we basically know what the Mogu were.  They were basically giant rock robots created by the Titans to pretty much guard and work in the Titan's R&D Lab in Pandaria, aka the Vale of Eternal Blossoms.  

Doesn't sound all that grand or majestic when I put it that way, huh?

So, being robots, and programmed by the Titans, they probably have worked with the Dragon Aspects.  I wouldn't put it passed.  

Aspects of the War of Ancients by Ghostwalker2061



Now before you purists call foul, let me remind you, we don't really know much about what went on.  I mean the dragons and the Aspects really don't appear at least to the mortal consciousness in the canon until the Well of Eternity trilogy.  That's thousands upon thousands of years of most mortals on Azeroth not knowing they had dragons...let alone Dragon Aspects.

And even then, it's not made clear.  

And I'm working a story that has a Dragon Aspect as the main character, so I gotta fill in the holes here.

So, it would make sense that one Titan construct, the Mogu, would help and work with another Titan construct, the Aspects.  

So I wouldn't put it far beyond these two groups as being at least on the friendly side.  The Titans would want their constructs to work harmoniously.  They were about Order, so this makes sense.  We just don't know about it because again, the Adventurer is a nobody and is probably not privy to the true doings of what goes on behind the scenes when they're not looking.

And in a game aspect, this level of detail is probably not necessary.  Conservation of Detail is in play here.  However, in a story being written, especially one involving one of the physical gods of the planet, yeah, we need this level of detail.

They worked together doing the Titans' work on Azeroth, with ordered precision and purpose.

That is until the Curse of the Flesh happened and the Mogu got their prime functions all screwy and started beating each other up.

It also didn't help that their administrator, aka Ra-Den, probably was either malfunctioning himself, was taken offline, got damaged...who knows...

For those of you who don't know, he's a Titan Watcher.  Not an actual Titan, but a construct that acts as the administrator to keep all the other constructs in proper functioning order.  Watchers are, I guess, could be even higher than the Aspects on the pecking order.  Not higher in power, but higher in status.  The boss's boss, basically.  Or at least holding a higher position that would get an Aspect to be very respectful to them when they were around.

Neltharion could probably kick Algalon's ass every which way till Sunday, but when it comes to the pyramid of whose over whom, then it may be Algalon over Neltharion in terms of the actual pecking order.

Like the class status of the Blitzardi.  Algalon just has more authority than Neltharion.  Given he's got his hand on the button that tells the Titans to show up and erase all the life on the planet, strip it for resources, and start over...yeah...he's got more authority over Neltharion.  Algalon can actually get on the phone with the Titans and have them drop by.  Neltharion can't even do that.

So Pecking Order....

Titans

Titan Watchers

Dragon Aspects

Mogu and Tol'vir

Earthen

Mortals

Bottom row, guys.

Told you, you didn't matter.

So, again, this suggest they worked together.  

Which comes to the big issue here...

How the Hell Could the Aspects Allow Slavery to Happen?






Yeah.  That's a big one.

Father of the Black Dragonflight by Ghostwalker2061

You disappoint me, Squishy!

Let's look at the canon as is, unaltered by me to really fill in the holes.

Up until 12 thousand years ago on Azeroth, the Mogu had enslaved the Pandaren and other creatures in Pandaria, and the Aspects did jack shit to stop it.

Why did they allow it to happen?  Why didn't they do something?  

Because they clearly didn't.   Or else there would have been evidence.  Hell, the only time when all five Aspects lifted a finger to do ANYTHING was during the War of Ancients.

And probably a good thing too, because they botched that up big time.

I am looking at you, Alex!  You claim to again be Little Miss Perfect and Compassionate and you allowed Slavery to flourish!

And you're no different, Neltharion!  Shame on you!

Hell, according to canon, before the Mogu even took over the place, the Jinyu were the benevolent rulers and they got their asses kicked by the Mogu.

What the fucking hell happened?

The canon doesn't say.  It honest to god doesn't say.  

I'm beginning to think that the Aspects were an afterthought by Knaak because he wanted to stick dragons in the story and have them do something.  They basically had nothing to do at all in the lore.

Hell the main synopses on the history of Azeroth doesn't even mention them until the Second War when Deathwing gave his Dragon Soul away to Nekross.

Didn't even mention the fact that the friggin Dragon Soul, when combined with the Well of Eternity, was the thing that broke the planet.

You see why I am writing the story I am writing?  I am actually giving the dragons something to do.  More than they did in the actual canon.  If they were so goddamned important, than, this should have been easy.

It almost seems like the Titans just gave them those titles just to make them feel important.

Damn canon!

But in my headcanon, they actually do shit.  

So, how do I explain thousands of years when Pandaria was under the enslavement of the Mogu...and the Aspects just let it happen...well...here's how we do it...

The Legend of the Great Beast (Neltharion)





You all probably have already heard the title, the Great Beast, spoke already.

if you read the story, you would.

The Pandarens respecting Neltharion because he was the one who enkindled the fire of inner strength in them...which gave the Pandaren the will to stand up to Lei Shen and overthrow him.

Neltharion the Liberator!  Right?

Wrong!

Neltharion did not liberate any slaves.  The truth though is that Neltharion 1.0 was a very cunning and intelligent being.  He was also a person who, because of his lengthy lifespan, thought of the big picture.  He was planning for the future rather than handling things in the now.

So, he didn't break any shackles, he didn't rally the masses, but he did confront Lei Shen.

The prologue of Rise of the Sha is written mostly from a folklore perspective.  A parable passed down by the Pandarens.  

But the truth itself is a bit different.

Neltharion probably was issuing a warning to Lei Shen and the Mogu that what they were doing would really make his job a bit harder.  They were going beyond the required safety levels for their work.  And it probably was damaging the planet.  And given the planet was Neltharion's responsibility, he had to step in and say something.  But it wasn't a warning like issuing a challenge...but more like one of the higher-ups telling the worker to stop what they were doing or they would get their hands cut off.

But the Pandarens interpret it as Neltharion standing up against what they believed to be a tyrant, and it spoke to them.  It made them want to rise up and overthrow the Mogu.

The Pandaren see Neltharion as their savior, but...really...he probably was not.  

However, I'm inclined to try and interpret in another fashion as well.  Maybe Neltharion really did hear the cries of the slaves, and wanted to do something.  But knew that if he actually did, he would be only doing more damage than any good.

Take a look at how we tend to "conquer" other countries under the guise of liberation, only to just leave and allow another even more corrupt power to take over?  

Yeah, that would have happened.  

Also, Neltharion was about long term goals given his lifespan.  He was planning for the future.  He saw what had happened to the old empire when the Mogu overthrew the Jinyu, and he saw what the Mogu were doing that was damaging the planet.  So, he knew the best option, since Lei Shen during their meeting...and Nel telling him that he needs to follow safety regulations...Lei Shen telling Neltharion to fuck-off...probably didn't sit well with Nel either.

And he realized that the time of the Mogu was over.  It's time to put in power a culture that would rule over Pandaria justly, respect the land, and not be such stuck up assholes.

So, Neltharion, in very subtle ways, prepared the Pandaren.  Neltharion 1.0, being the crafty genius bastard he was, probably nudged the Pandaren in various, secretive ways.  He wanted to make sure that they could stand on their own feet as well.  So, he didn't liberate them, he made them liberate themselves.  


And because of that, it created a stronger culture in the Pandaren.  

Give a man a fish, he'll eat for the day, teach a man to fish, he'll eat for a lifetime.  

And that's basically what Neltharion did.  Eventually, when the Pandaren overthrew their taskmasters, and started their new Empire, Neltharion probably helped in molding it to make sure that empire would not crumble.  He taught the Pandaren how to respect the land, understand its moods.  He worked with the Jade Serpent to guide the Pandaren.

Did he hold their hand while he did it?  No.  He treated them like students, and they learned so that they would learn from the mistakes of the Mogu and make sure those mistakes are not repeated.

And because he planned for the future, here was an Empire that lasted for over 12 thousand years, even after the Sundering when most other cultures were being wiped out.  

They kept accurate records.  Despite their shorter lifespans compared to the Elves, they still remember the day the green fire came.  They do remember the Sundering quite well.  

So the legacy that Nel 1.0 left behind is still there. 

But unfortunately, Nel 2.0 doesn't have the feet big enough to fill those shoes.

And honestly, the legend itself and the legacy, it is far bigger than the Earth-Warder himself.

Sooner or later, reality is gonna smack him over the face again.

And we will see the Squishy cry like a baby.

And Garrosh laughing at him in the distance.

Genders and Blitzardi

Mass Effect 3: The Cycle Chapter 12


I thought I'd first show this off for those of you who haven't read it. 
The final story of the Kiryuu um...Continuum...has a new chapter up.

Mass Effect 3: The Cycle Chapter 12

For those of you who like Kiryuu....

Kiryuu Mechagodzilla by Ghostwalker2061

Especially that one guy who left a non-review on Rise of the Sha that had nothing to do with Rise of the Sha.  You know, if you loved Kiryuu so much, idiot, why didn't  you read and review Mass Effect 3: The Cycle.  It's the final story in the Kiryuu Saga itself.  I'd think you'd be the first in line to read that story.  Because after that story is written, there won't be anymore Kiryuu stories.

Some fan you are.  Wanna tell me how much you like Kiryuu and NOT read his final story.  

Well, that story is a collaboration between me and G-Chaser.  So, those of you who are fans of Kiryuu...go read the story.  And don't give me: "But I don't know where it is..." garbage.  I posted the link in this journal.

At the top of this journal.

Now, for the actual topic.

Gender and the Blitzardi


You know, I love discussing these guys.

The Blitzardi...if some of you haven't gotten to know who they are...well...the Blitzardi are detailed in this deviation....

The Blitzardi by Ghostwalker2061

Read it.

And they are also discussed in more detail here...

Who are the Kethosi?More along the lines of who the fuck are the Blitzardi, but that's part of the question.
You know something I might as well just talk about the Blitzardi, because these guys are the assholes of the universe.
My grandmother made sure I had a political opinion.  And this is where the foundations of the Kethosi comes from.  The Kethosi are in fact these anthropomorphic dragons from outer space.  They are highly advanced, to the point of being gods basically.  Their technology is basically, when Thor in the movie says: "Where I come from, magic and science are the same thing."  Yeah, that's the Kethosi.  They have a form of magic-science.  And that's the best way I can explain it. It goes beyond our understanding.
They are a space opera.  And Technomancy is handled like the Force, being mystical, magical, and the grounding basics of why these guys can piss on physics on a daily bases.
They range in height from 55 meters tall to friggin 80 meters.


Okay, are we caught up on who and what they are?  Can I now move on?

No?

Well, for those of you too lazy to click and read the detailed descriptions...here is what they are in a nutshell.

Khan and Me complete by Ghostwalker2061

The Blitzardi are basically a member of a species of space dragons called the Kethosi, or the Precursors in the Mass Effect story.

The Blitzardi are basically the space version of White Colonial Imperialism, meaning they believe because they are the dominant guys in the universe, that means they have the divine right to take your shit without asking.  Oh, and if you wanna complain about it, they'll just laugh at you because you are a nothing ant compared to them, in more ways than one.

Blitzardi are naturally 75-80 meters tall with Kedzuel and a few others who are rich enough to pay for the super augmentation, round out around 90-100 meters tall.  

These guys are as tall as Heisei and Legendary Godzilla.  And just as heavy, and just as destructive as well.

That is why you are an ant to them.

They are in fact, and it is literal, energy made flesh.  Their powers make them literal Physical Gods and their long lives ranges in the millions.  They have the power over electromagnetism, can manipulate both matter and energy even down to the very particles.

Tali'zorah Fights the Emperor by Ghostwalker2061


 
To put it in perspective with those who follow my Warcraft Stories.  Imagine if you put Neltharion and Malygos (Kalecgos) into a blender and turned them both into a smoothy.

And this smoothy becomes the basis of what the Blitzardi are.  

They have a lot of reasons as to why they believe themselves to be the most powerful.  Their statements of this boast isn't hollow at all.  They are physically and mentally the most powerful beings in the universe.  They can back up that claim.  

But the question is: should they?  The answer is pretty much a flat "no".  Which is why we have characters like Kedzuel and Nercine, and Blitzardi who associate with them.  Because these characters know that strength and power aren't everything, and that they know they can count on the strength of even the beings most Blitzardi consider to be lesser than they are.

But again, the Blitzardi are pretty much a race of godlike space dragons who look at our pitiful understanding of Physics and laugh out loud and to our faces.  Which is why they can do the things they can do.

And a lot of them really don't die of old age either, they just move onto the next plane of existence.  One of those being their racial hero Emperor Mae Elaena Draconis, the first Emperor who faced the Reapers in the Mass Effect Story's history.  In the actual history, she was the first to kick the ass of creatures similar to Cthulhu, earning her with: "Did you just punch out Cthulhu?"

She is the ultimate culmination of Blitzardi strength and cunning and she is the Emperor that every Blitzardi, well every military Blitzardi and Blitzardi Aristocrat try to live up to.  And there are statues dedicated to her.

Which brings to the topic of gender among the Blitzardi.  

One thing I like about the Blitzardi is that I can really have fun with them.  I can discuss at least some of my own sociopolitical views without really offending anyone.

It's pretty much the same reason why the Na'vi are an allegory of Colonial Imperialism and the plight of the Native Americans, or rather ANY aboriginal culture that pretty much met the "all-mighty Whitey."  James Cameron used them as a stand-in.

But the one thing I wanted to pretty much take out of the culture of the Blitzardi was the subject of gender roles.  

Basically, the Blitzardi have no gender roles.  They are much like us, having two sexes that produce offspring much like we do.  It does take a female and a male Blitzardi to make a child.  

But that's the only time where gender is important.  Procreation.  Gender outside of making babies, has no real value upon the Blitzardi culture.  

Mostly due to the fact that both men and women among the Blitzardi are of equal strength.  

I bet some of you are asking, are there gay or lesbian, or even bi, or transgender Blitzardi?

The answer is yes.  Have I written about them?  No.  Mostly due to the fact that is a culture that I do not understand and I feel very unqualified to properly write about.  So, I leave it out.  

But gender itself, or rather the sex of the individual among the Blitzardi have no real importance.  

The original design of the Blitzardi was that both male and female were suppose to look the same.  No sexual dimorphism in the race, unlike us humans, who...yeah, you can tell if that's a woman or if that's a man.

But I got a lot of people saying: "Is it male or female?"  So, I had to slim down the females among the Blitzardi to help those who need some visual distinction.  You know, make female Blitzardi look more feminine, because we need to know if the person has boobs in order to qualify her as female.

Blitzardi females have no mammary glands.  They're not mammals.  They're more like reptiles.  Despite all that hair.

But still, despite having to give this alien species sexual dimorphism so that you all can visually identify both male and females easier...the gender of the Blitzardi has no meaning among their culture.

No, Blitzardi instead favor power, both political and military over gender.  Among the Blitzardi, since they have a class system, first born, regardless of gender, are favored.   That's why Kedzuel is Emperor and Nercine is not.  Because Kedzuel was first born.  And also because Khan thought Kedzuel looked a lot like him, and his ego got the better of him.

If Nercine were first born, she would have been Emperor instead.

Family political power is also favored over gender.  The family with a higher status is often the one who gets to pass on their surnames when they marry someone of a lower class.

Say if a male Blitzardi marries a female who's family has more political power, has a noble title that is above the male's, and is a class much higher than his...the male has to take on the female's surname.  And the same would go for a female who is of a lower class than her would-be male fiancee.  Because being forced to take on the surname of your better is a part of that power control they like.  

There are also no gender alternate names for females as well.  Which is why Mae Elaena is called Emperor and not Empress.  

Nercine's noble title is Grand Duke, not Grand Duchess.  

And we've seen examples of this in our own history.  Hell, Queen Liz...one of her many titles is Lord of Mann, and she is also called the Duke of Normandy.  

Spouses who marry into a family of a higher status than themselves do not take on any title, not Duchess, or Empress, or Queen...or Lady...they keep the title they originally had before the marriage.

So, if Kedzuel marries a woman who has no title of nobility at all...his spouse (man or woman) keeps their formal title.  Like Mr. or Ms.  or Mrs.

Kedzuel fell in love and married a human woman, though at the time he was Grand Duke Kedzuel, his spouse was called Mrs. Cara Draconis.  

So, there is a lot of gender equality among the Blitzardi and the Kethosi in general.  What gender you are isn't going to be the thing that holds you back in Blitzardi culture.

Being poorer or of a lower social class does.  A female Blitzardi not being given much opportunity has nothing to do what gender she is, but how high or low on the pecking order she is.

And the same goes with the males.  The only time where gender and sex matters is during sex.  And no, there's no male must dominate female during sex either.  

However, breeding and weeding out undesirable traits...well that's just a part of their culture.  Because Blitzardi value power, their methods of making sure that they are powerful is richly ingrained in their culture.  

But there are no gender roles, no thinking that just because that Blitzardi is a female, makes her any less of a warrior.  Hell, they even have Co-ed changing rooms in their military.  

So, I hope that some of this might clear things up if someone calls foul on the fact that I call Nercine a Duke or Mae Elaena an Emperor, rather than using Duchess or Empress.  

It's not incorrect, it's just their culture.

Great Cthulhu in Tennessee

Taken on I-40 in Tennessee near Sevierville.

Oh my god....CTHULHU IS COMING TO TENNESSEE. Oh Great Cthulhu, please accept the offering of the stupid Tennessee Drivers as an incentive to devour me last when you finally cleanse this world of its misery.

Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn.

In his house in R'lyeh, dead Cthulhu waits dreaming.

That is not dead which can eternal lie,
And with strange aeons even death may die. - H.P. Lovecraft

Yes, I know it's photoshopped....don't burst my bubble, damn it!  I can still dream that Cthulhu finally showed up and decided to end this miserable state.

Pandaria Rise of the Sha Chpt 14

Mon Mar 2, 2015, 2:45 AM

Chapter 14 of Rise of the Sha


It has been posted...

Pandaria: Rise of the Sha Chapter 14

Father of the Black Dragonflight by Ghostwalker2061

Tell me, is the Squishy cute yet?

We get the introduction of Yu'lon, the Jade Serpent.  As well as we follow Taran Zhu over to the Jade Serpent who tells him exactly who Neltharion really is.

And boy, is he ever fucking surprised...and a little embarrassed he just barked at an old friend of one of the most beloved beings on Pandaria.

Yeah, Taran Zhu, maybe next time, you should keep that mouth shut.

I noticed a lot of people having some frustrations over Taran Zhu, and I can kinda see why.  He tends to blab about stuff he really doesn't understand.  Granted, yeah, we don't understand Pandaria and their social structure and culture, but thing is though, Taran Zhu shouldn't be shoving into our faces about the war between the Alliance and the Horde.

Granted, yes, it's not a pretty war, but there is a good reason behind it.

The Horde was an invading alien species that came to Azeroth for the sole purpose of conquering and enslaving because they fucked up their own planet trying to kick off another group of peaceful aliens all on the grounds of a misunderstanding that happened two centuries ago!

Trust me, there's gonna be a big gripe about Draenor and Oshu'gun later...because even the time frame doesn't really make sense, unless the Orcs themselves are so primitive in keeping up their own history that a crash landing of a friggin spaceship is considered ancient history to them.

Kinda makes me wonder if the Mayan and the Aztecs were more advanced than these idiots.

But still, the story is, Draenor was being fucked over by war, so Gul'dan devised a plan with fucking Sargeras the Dark Lord himself...to come and conquer Azeroth.

So, you can see why I found Taran Zhu's preachy statement in Pandaria about why the Horde and Alliance should be best of friends and let by gones be by gones kinda stupid.  It's easy for him to say that because Pandaria has been living in its own little world for the last 10 thousand years.

Which is why I think in my story, Taran Zhu, many times, will be ending his own shoe when he opens his mouth.  ESPECIALLY when he deals with Neltharion and the other Aspects.

He Lived Long and Prospered

Sat Feb 28, 2015, 3:01 AM


I'm guessing everyone knows about the death of Leonard Nimoy, aka Mr. Spock...from Star Trek, his notable role among many others.

And the atrocious butchering of that line he did in Wrath of Khan done in Transformers 3.

But I thought I'd show the last tweet of our favorite pointy-eared science officer.

I think it's beautiful.

A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory. LLAP

I love it.

And my favorite Star Trek Movie...



Spock's Death and funeral.

Tue Feb 24, 2015, 9:19 PM


You know, I'm starting to think we're being attacked by Bizzaro-Snowmiser.

Because we just got snow again that covered the melt that happened yesterday.  And we're getting more snow Wednesday night.  



Damn it...

Fuck off, Snowmiser!  I know I love nostalgia and I kinda want everything to go back to the 1990s, but I didn't mean having the weather of the 1990s.

Or, perhaps, this really is the result of Mt. (We can't pronounce its name) Eyjafjallajökull.

Just like the 1990s snows were the result of Mt. Saint Helens.

*sigh*

Neltharion vs. the Sha of Doubt

Tue Feb 17, 2015, 9:12 PM


Rise of the Sha by Ghostwalker2061

I think I have an idea of what may happen with the fight between Nel and the Sha.

Well, I'm gonna have Doubt play into Nel's own doubts.  His doubts about himself, his past, Deathwing, his powers....that sort of thing.  Because Neltharion doubts himself a lot.

However, the plan is to have someone trying to give him some encouragement.

And the idea behind how I'm gonna do that is to have Neltharion, once he awakens, decide to take this battle a little bit higher....as in, let's take it up above the stratosphere.

There was an undone fight I wanted to do with Pyrothraxus, having him fight Shäzyx up above the stratosphere...

Well, since I'm not finishing the Crimson Dragon II, I decided to give that fight to Neltharion and the Sha.

For one thing, it would lesson the collateral damage.  Because much like what Goku and Vegeta say: He needs a lot of room to fight.

Like a barren wasteland...Piccolo's favorite place to fight in.  Or live in.

So, that's what I plan to do with Neltharion as well.  But there's not much of barren wastelands around Pandaria, so he's gonna take it up into the air.

Now, you might think, wouldn't Neltharion be too far away from his element to fight adequately?

Dude, Neltharion doesn't need to throw around the elements to prove his strength.  He's got his fists too.

But no, Nel's not gonna be too far from his element.  He's got water and air, especially ice in the atmosphere to call upon as well.

Or hell, he could take it deep into the planet's core too.  But I wanna do a high speed fight in the air.  Which Neltharion is capable of doing.  Get him into the air, and he can use the air currents to his advantage.  
It might be kinda fun...

PMing Me on fanfiction.net

Mon Feb 16, 2015, 4:01 PM


So I got this from one of my buddies here on DA....

honestly, i don't think many people know how to PM you on fanfiction.net, but still it not that hard to figure out. but yeah, i can see how that can get annoying real quick when you review section is filled with nothing but useless rumbling. 

So apparently there's a bunch of people out there that aren't smart enough to push a single button that's on the front page of my fanfiction.net account...

So, I am going to be the nice person and show you all how to do it properly so that...this...

Comments that Aren't Relevant to StoryGuys, do I honestly have to tell you where these sort of comments go...
Mostly, I'm pissed off, because this wasn't an anon review and therefore, harder to get rid of...
But let me tell you something.  If you wanna thank me for inspiring you, that's fine.  I like to hear that.
But there is a time and place for it.
Putting that into the review section of a story you have no plans on reading in the first place...is NOT the place to put that in.
As in, for the love of God, PM me with that kinda shit.
Don't put it in the review box.  I like to keep things relevant to the story I'm writing in the review.
If you have no intention in offering critiques or comments, or anything related to the story I'm writing to perhaps help me get better as a writer or tell me what you like about the story...or what I need to work on...then don't bother saying anything in review box itself.
Just PM me.  
How hard is it to PM someone?  


Doesn't happen again.
