I don't think I'll be writing too much fanfiction with him anymore. You could adopt him if you want? I'll give ownership of his character pages and shit over to you. I may start from scratch with a new character. I think you could really capture what I was going for with Greg Ryder.
I think you would do an excellent job with Greg Ryder. You have a very firm grasp on what kind of person Greg is and I can't think of a better person to adopt him. I'm sick of seeing him sitting in limbo like the way he is :(
Anyway, the basic idea of my new character is (haven't named him yet) the son of a mob boss who is a pacifist, and his dad sends him to Bullworth Academy for his freshman year. I haven't decided which mob family he is going to belong to. It's going to be one of the Liberty City mob families from GTA, probably. He has seven older brothers that are all made men, and they're either working for the family, in jail, and in one case, dead. His father had mistresses so he isn't quite sure who his mother is. He's looked at as the runt of the litter because he's not a tough guy who isn't interested in going down the criminal path, but he is an incredible musician. He sings and plays guitar.
He gets bullied a lot at Bullworth but there will be instances where he snaps and lashes out at his offenders, but he is normally very good at keeping his cool. He makes friends who protect him but he is just too nice for his own good.
I feel like he is a very different character than Greg because Greg is a tough kid who comes from a rough background but this character comes from a family of means who want him to someday join the family. He wants to be in a rock band but his father wouldn't approve of that at all.
That was just what I brainstormed. What do you think?
I like the idea. He isn't someone who's steered on a warpath like Greg would be, he is someone who could see the destruction wrought by his family, and has decided to fight against that and make a clean life for himself.
Would this be during the continuity of Bully? I've considered a story with a new character set during a 1989-1993 period of time. That was a time when culture was changing and so I thought of writing with a character during these changing times. It's a Reagan-Bush era, the Gulf War begins to shift into play, Hair Metal is being replaced with Hip-Hop, Grunge, and Alternative Rock. It could cover several topics such as Crabblesnitch as a young, up-and-coming teacher, Neil could be the leader of the Greasers, etc.
That would be interesting! I haven't thought about when it would be taking place.
I was thinking perhaps in the early 2000's right before Bully started. I was thinking while characters like Johnny, Ted, and Derby were freshman and before Jimmy came along. We would get to see these characters before they were clique leaders and such.
I have this idea that maybe my character and Ted became best friends freshman year, but then he started taking football seriously and became popular, leaving my character in the dust. I think it would be interesting to see a humble Ted, desperately wanting to be popular and beloved by everyone.
What do you think? Do you have any ideas for Greg? I can help you brainstorm.
Hey, dude. It's been a while since I've talked to you, so I wanted to message you hoping things are going well, and wanted to wish you a happy birthday! My birthday is tomorrow and I'm going to be 18. I feel old, but that's just my ols soul talking. Anyways, hope that things are going good for you and hope you have a great birthday, dude.
Thank you for those tips. They really helped. I completed the game! You are right. Ganondorf's palace was easy. Just like the moon in Majora's Mask. An easier version of the moon children's games. I did have to fight Ganon twice, because I kept running out of magic to fire arrows at him, then slice his tail.
The ending was kinda a let down. But it makes sense now, with Navi flying away. Why Link went off in search of her. Majora's Mask really does pick up where Ocarina of Time leaves off.
What's awesome about the final battle with Ganon is that there are several ways to beat him. You can use bombs or arrows or whatever to hit his tail. But if you have the Biggoron Sword, then you can somersault in between his legs and just hit his tail from behind. That's usually what I do because I find it hilarious xD
Personally, I really liked the ending because it is the setup for Majora's Mask. That's just my opinion tho and I can see why you didn't like the ending as much.
As you're probably aware, sometimes blogs get caught up in the newsfeed and as a result, I don't get to read every single blog post that gets put up, so thanks for sending me these. I'll check them out. BTW, we should plan something for your prologue chapters with Greg and C-Money!
You offered to tell me on that blog how to beat the boss. I thought I'd reply here, in case the blog gets lost on the feed or something.
That would be great! The whole dungeon is confusing to me. A friend did loan me a guide book just for the last dungeon, and where all the heart pieces are to give me extra help, but her daughter ripped out the pages with the boss battle and drew on them.
Any tips you have will be very appreciated. I'm desperate to complete Ocarina of Time, because I've been playing it since N64. The version I play now is the 3DS version, if that makes any difference.
I did manage to make it through the dungeon a couple of times, but because Ganondorf kept killing me, seemed pointless to fight my way to him, if I wasn't going to actually fight him. So I stopped. On the 3DS version, I've never bothered to do the dungeon. Just saved and quit.
Okay, this is how to beat Ganondorf (on the N64 version, which is what I have always played it on).
Before you even go to fight him, make sure you completed the quest where you get the Biggoron Sword because it makes the boss fight a LOT easier. Also make sure you are stocked up on Fairies or potions to help you during your fight.
Make sure to do this in either of the four corners of the room otherwise Ganondorf will make the floor fall. When Ganondorf throws energy at you, you need to correctly time your sword strike against the ball of energy BEFORE it hits you. Think of it like volleyball. He will throw the ball to you and you have to hit it right back at him. You just have to use your reflexes and good timing to beat him. Now when Ganondorf throws the projectile where his energy attack turns purple and a bunch of balls of energy get launched at you at once. When he does this, make sure to power yourself up with a spin attack and let it loose when the attack is about to hit you. Hits them all right back at him.
After you hit him with energy, you have to shoot a light arrow at him. Navi isn't there to help you in this battle so you won't be able to target him and launch the arrow. You have to aim and shoot at him.
After following these steps, you have beaten Ganondorf. But the game isn't over yet! If you complete this battle and you still need help on the finale, then let me know!
Also, the 3DS version is a lot easier than the original, so I'm sure you'd be fine on the final dungeon haha. My friend completed the Water Temple on the 3DS version in 30 minutes, and he said that a lot of the dungeons were made to be easier (probably cuz Nintendo thought that the difficulty level of the original game would be too much for a mainstream young audience today. At least that's MY theory haha).
Oh! I was going about the fight all wrong. Using my shield to deflect. Judging by what you have told me, the fight seems a lot like that mini-boss in Forsaken Fortress in Wind Waker, the one you beat to get the skull hammer.
I did notice the game was much easier. You know the temple behind the graveyard? I hated that temple. I could beat it, but sometimes I just couldn't be bothered with it. On 3DS did it on first try.
I can't wait to fight him! Will be a while. I was shopping, and found GTA: San Andreas remastered on PS3. It is completely disorienting playing the game with PS3 game controls, but who knows I might actually get to complete flight school this time, without getting someone to help me.
