Yes This will be a very useful thread for me. I always get writer's block and need new ideas.

What a coincidence. I was just about to ask for help in the Official fanfiction thread.

Since Oleander is such a complex character I'm having a hard time writing him down. Since we all view characters differently this will be a bit hard to explain.

To me Oleander could make me laugh, get pissed off, feel sympathy, and feel other emotions. So when writing him I don't want him to come off as "Woe is me. I am angry. Look at my angry face."

Oh and the time period that I am writing in is a month or two before the camp started. I'm in the rough rough stages of my story. That's why I'm being so loose with this.

(you are asking for other peoples opinons on oleander or asking for story ideas oh well heres both) he kinda reminded me of a wanna be drill sergeant thats why I liked him because he's trying to be mean but really is'nt and I guess you could show how he went crazy and how his nightmares took over his mind

This is really making me think. I'm almost itching for a pencil now. But you did bring up something important about him that I think I was forgetting.


I never even stopped to think that he has nightmares. I only asummed that Boyd and Milla had them.

A few questions. Is Jake in Whispering Rock?

If so, then try to style what he wears around the Whispering Rock uniform. For his face, if you want it to be in the Psychonauts style go print out pictures of various Psychonauts drawings. Don't copy the pictures just pick up the style of the faces.

Hope this helped.

Yeah, I wanna draw my RPG character for a fanfic I'm writing, but I just can't draw what my head sees cause I stink at drawing.


"A few times in my life I've had moments of absolute clarity. When for a few brief seconds, the silence drowns out the noise and I can feel rather than think, and things seem so sharp and the world seems so fresh. I can never make these moments last. I cling to them, but like everything, they fade. I've lived my life on these moments. They pull me back to the present and I realize that everything is exactly the way it was meant to be."

what I do is draw several charcters in different styles pick the one that looks like the best one that matches in my head then I draw it several more times till it's just right but I have a lot of patience so it's not for everyone

Sure. Anything I really am in a writer's block that cannot be cured. Perhaps writing on something else will help.

Well, if you could write about...

...

Hm. If you could write a quick Jasper/Becky, I think I'd marry you.

Paranoidish got me hooked. I was tempted to ask for Rainbow Man, though.

Understandable.

I can't write it for crap. You just don't want to.

And now that you have something else to write about, you don't have to write about Oly, mkay?

A biography on... Walt Disney.

Really, give it to your Social Studies teacher.

Okay, fine. I don't know what you should write. Or should've written. I don't even know what we're talking about anymore.

Are you psychic? Because I was just found my 4th grade biography report on Walt Disney.

Didn't you say you were going to write a Psychonauts fanfiction? HAve you begun? Any notes you would like to post. I won't make fun or laugh or anything. I take fanfiction seriously. I've been taking a lot of things seriously lately.

Haha, I've played Psychonauts, no? Therefore I should be skilled in the psychic making.

Hmm. I've been thinking about starting a new fic, because it's been a while since the last one. I might post notes later, but I've got to... make some. I've been drawing, sorry. Freaking smiley!

He is for a while. But then he's all 'problems!' and everything is good.

A pretty general question but what is it exactly that Psychonauts do? Psychonauts like Oleander who don't go off to save the world.

Also when they are not teaching camp.

They'd make good psychiatrists, that's for sure. I suppose some of the ones who don't constantly save the world could sit back for backup.

Possibly...but would that mean in therapy they would go inside of each and every patients mind? Or simply study it from the outside.

Going inside all the time would probably get... annoying. But since they are mental experts they could study it from the outside.
