Dude, I've read David-ya's blog, but seriously could you help me to increase Damon's Hatsu Transmutation to Level 2 or 3? I have no ideas at moment on how to use fire in different ways, if you could help, please Fire Fist (Pirate-King) 17:26, August 30, 2014 (UTC)
Yo Ya. I was wondering if I could use Eros Genesis for Arashi Shunki to explain how he was born. I was also wondering do the people who preform the spell have to be of the same race or just be of a race that is compatible with one another?

Yo mind if I use either Neptune or Sol from that planetary key page? I think either of them would fit my character well. Maybe even Saturn but that's if they're available. Don't worry, as following by the rules, I'm only choosing one. after I find out whether they're avaiable.
I'll go with Sol then thanks
In case you didn't get the other message, I got that green quin pic finished. I can't really speak for the quality, but let me know if it works for ya. Flame Lizard (talk) 04:15, September 19, 2014 (UTC)

Guess Who :3Edit
Hey Yahoo, I've been thinking since you've written for Mira once before, I was wondering if you could write for her brother in the RP. When you get this, please message me your response, you'd really be helping out. Thanks,

No, sorry, but not happening.
He's noteworthy enough and I'm never approving stuff like parents and grandparents or children. Cousins though, that could work if the character is minor. If you want to make a cousin of Jura, sure, I suppose. I'd rather not, but rules are rules -- as I think about it, Jura is minor enough to fit this.
Well, for one, character development is the number one priority first and foremost- put this above plot and fighting, I cannot stress this enough. Develop your characters well- avoid cliches unless you're going to expand or subvert them. A chapter or two without anything happening is fine, if you use it to develop your characters- let the "breather" chapters give the reader an insight into the character's mind, their likes and dislikes, their fears, etc. I mean, what's the point of trying to set up emotional or awesome moments with characters if the audience can't connect with them?
As for plots, go wild, do what you really want instead of following any formulas. You shouldn't have to contain your ideas to the universe you're writing in- look at Daybreak, that's basically a toku story masquerading as a shonen story, and see how many people like that. In essense, it's up to you what you want to write about- just remember, as long as it has some connection, whether in concepts or world to the original series, you're good to go.
Fights themselves are pretty difficult to write up- but just remember to make them as flashy as possible. It doesn't matter who the winner of a fight is, as long as it's well done. Oh and plot might matter too. Honestly, I don't think I can really offer any fight advice, other than use the entire movelist of your characters and apply them creatively, make the fight as much as a battle of wits as a battle of immense forces- that way, the audience will be in for a treat. Also, take into consideration the environment, the weather, the characters' personal phobias and things they hate- that way you can always mix it up and make no battle the same as the last one.
Well, translation takes just a few steps.
For example, take the Frozen Devil Ice Dance (凍魔氷舞, Tōma Hyōbu) spell from my Ice Devil Slayer Magic.
Go to nihongodict.
Search for a word relating to Freeze, but never search for the word with the –ing suffix. In my example, I got Tōkō (凍港); aka Frozen Harbour (so search Frozen). The kō港 means harbour. Copy the kanji of Tōkō and remove the second kanji, which is, obviously, kō. Tō is 'frozen', so go to Ice Devil (氷魔, Hyōma) and replace Hyō (氷, Ice) with Frozen (凍, Tō).
Ta-da—We've got the first word of the spell, Frozen Devil (凍魔, Tōma).
The second part is a little bit trickier. In "Ice Dance", both kanji can be in any order, really, so just go with the order that sounds better.
If you know basic shōnen manga and as I stated above, Ice is Hyō (氷).
Dance usually appears as (ダンス, dansu). Don't use this. A normal word such as dance, a universal one is never written in katakana or hiragana, but always in kanji. Dance itself is舞 Mai, and Ice is 氷 Hyō. Put them together, and you'll have Hyōmai. However, that doesn't sound too good.
Go up one or two options, and you'll see 舞踊, Buyō, dancing. You notice that Mai and the first kanji of Buyō are the same—and Bu sounds better.
You don't need to change the kanji, just change the pronunciation—you'll have Hyōbu.
I apologize if it's too complicated, but for a shorter version, search up Star (星, Hoshi). Then put that kanji in the translator on nihongodict, and you'll see underneath that, "sei", which also means star. Shorten Hoshi to Sei whenever you make a spell about it from now on.
