    Should I Delete All My OC Stories?

    Including Sid's stories. If so, should I either wait until I improve my writing or never make another one at all. I'm not trying to guilt-trip or bother anyone. I just wanted to know what people think I should do and why. Can someone give me the answer?

    What Being a True Hero is All About

    Being a hero is more than just being big and strong. You need to be friendly, kind, empathetic, compassionate, apologetic, and forgiving especially towards those who need it. You don't have to be perfect or infallible, but you do have to be good. Those are the signs of a true hero, in my opinion.

    Here's What Makes a Good Villain (In My Opinion)

    I just love writing characters a lot. From heroes, to anti-heroes, to supporting characters, etc. But if there's one thing I'd love to write more, it's the villains and anti-villains. Whether big or small, serious or goofy, sympathetic or monstrous, villains are one of my breads and butters in terms of character writing. I'm not saying that I don't like writing hero characters or any other

    Villain Critique Choices

    I have two choices to pick between that I want to do a villain critique for: Count Bleck and Dimentio, both from Super Paper Mario. The problem is that I don't know which one to pick first since both of them are very great, well-written, and nuanced villains.

Shelter, by Porter Robinson and Madeon - Song Review · 7:20pm October 13th

Good afternoon, everyone. I'm back to continue the new series: Song Review

Before we get started, here are the rules for this new series:

First, if you haven't seen, read, played, or heard of any of these songs and/or the media that they appear in, there will be spoilers. You have been warned. Also, keep in mind that I haven't seen, heard of, and/or known a lot about every song out there, so if you have a song that you want to show me and I haven't known about him or her yet, please be sure to lend me some information through either reply or via PM.

Second, This is all just my personal opinion and you don't have to agree with me if you don't want to. Just please be nice, constructive, and considerate, especially when telling me why you disagree in the comments down below or via PM.

And finally, any great song counts, even fan-made or original songs.

Okay, let's start this review with one of the most beautiful and heartbreaking songs I've ever seen and listened to: Shelter

This song almost made me cry in every aspect. From the story, to the visuals, to the music, to the lyrics, it's an all-around feels trip. That's one of the reason why it's one of my favorite songs to listen to. And here's why:

  1. Story Overview: Now, I know that this song is actually a love song, but judging by the music video alone, it's still heartbreaking because of its new story.

    Shelter tells the story of Rin, a 17-year-old girl who lives her life inside of a futuristic simulation completely by herself in infinite, beautiful loneliness. Each day, Rin awakens in virtual reality and uses a tablet which controls the simulation to create a new, different, beautiful world for herself. But all is not as it seems…

    As time passes, the simulation taps into her repressed memories, which lets her remember her past. Through flashbacks, it is revealed that in order to save her from an upcoming apocalypse, her father built a single-passenger spaceship and sent her to an unknown destination, with her brain connected to this simulation.

    If that isn't a genuinely sad and heartbreaking story, I don't know what is.

  2. Melody: The melody has this soft, somewhat cheerful, and angelic tune with a sad and depressing undertone to it, which fits the overall tone of the anime video. From the moment the story begins, you know that you're going to listen to and see something sad just from the music alone. And the voice from the singer definitely supports this, too.
  3. Lyrics: The lyrics are simple, but effective and well-written in general. They talk about the transmission from one generation to the next through parenthood and gives you the feels right away in terms of how they convey that message.
  4. Emotion(s): The emotions are extremely strong and sad at the same time. It sounds somewhat cheerful and somewhat depressing, especially when you consider the story behind it as a result.
  5. Theme(s): The theme is this: Escapism into fantasy worlds, virtual reality, the serene beauty of nature, heartbreak, and familial love. Very deep and complex.
  6. Message(s): The message is the same as the lyrics: The transmission from one generation to the next through parenthood.
  7. Overall: This song has a lot going for it. It's beautiful, It's cheerful, It's heartbreaking (Sorry that I keep saying that). This is a song that I would definitely recommend if you're interested.

What do you guys think? Do you agree or disagree? What favorite songs do you want me to review and why? Let me know in either the comments or via PM. Thank you and have a great day.
