VTCobaltblood's Supreme Warbler Application

Recommended Posts

Ckey/BYOND Username: VTCobaltblood

Position Being Applied For: Skrell Deputy

Past Experiences/Knowledge: 5 years wiki editing experience, very familiar with the syntax and some technical workings like templates. GitHub contributor. Some minor writing experience. My activity on the skrell discord. Going to admit I actually lack experience in writing settings, so here goes something..?

Examples of Past Work: 

Essay: Skrell Crime because cmon everyone expected me to write THAT


Additional Comments
I was originally going to present several essays, but I really wanted to get the app out today, so I'll probably append the second, and maybe even a third essay later.
I would also like to admit upfront that I tend to get very heated on subjects I'm passionate about, so I might sometimes be harsh and combative, as seen by my 2 forum strikes. I try to avoid that, and it doesn't mean that I'm averse to feedback and critique - in fact, I like to consider myself to be very open to suggestions - I just think that some of it may be wrong, and that's something for lore staff to consider.

I was asked to -1 this "trash application" (VT's words, not mine). But when have I ever done as I was told?

+1. Fantastic member of the community with a relatively good record, otherwise joyous to be around. Roleplays great characters and I think they're more than capable as another Skrell deputy.

Second essay, smaller in scope, on skrell humor. It was discussed on the skrell discord extensively, but I thought it is worth a mention here as an example of my work, and my general direction and vision for the skrell - making them very much unlike humans in many ways, making them inferior to humans in some regards (mainly, their monoculture... which i haven't touched in this essay, but heavily implied in the skrell crime one - the other culture is literally outlawed, and even that is mainly uniform) and generally making them more than "humans but logical and better" - instead, I wish to expand on their completely unique ways of thinking which a human would never have, and illustrate how a skrell would never have some human thoughts cross their mind.

Where do you intend to take Skrell? What direction do you want to expand towards?

Yeah I like this and I'm not saying this just because I want to be able to walk into a room and say a non-sequitir sentence and have a warblrysm.

 

I wanna see Skrell have some super alien stuff that if a human went to Jargon and took a tour, they'd go "This is weirder than when I took a trip to Mars" because honestly, the most alien race I can think of right now are just Vaurcae I'd say Dionaea too but like............NEL (Not Enough Lore) so it'd be great to have Skrell added to that list and stand on a more colored ground than the mush they're on right now. Soooo uh....+1 right? Yeah...

Hi!

I like your essay on criminal aspects a lot, and think it would fit very will into our lore. That addition will add a lot of new possible skrell characters, and I've actually already made a character with the concept of it and enjoyed it a lot - I also feel like you'd fit well into the lore team, so, accepted! Welcome to the team!
