Anonymous asked: I was messing with the idea of a quirk based around Roman numerals for a troll who's interested in history and Alternian civilization and such, where they'd capitalize the letters used in roman numerals (IVXLCDM) and use them instead of numbers ("the VIII of us are goIng to pLay a gaMe!"). I was wondering whether you think they would be fine to use given that they won't be...
Anonymous asked: Hello, I have a question, -obviously- about themed trolls. I've thought about my fantroll to be magic-based, if thats possible, and I've already designed a sign for her. I've noticed that, in the lower spectrum of blood colors, the more likely the troll with be more of a "sorcerer" if you will, given that the troll has no mutations in their blood, like Karkat. I'd...

Anonymous asked: A were-troll wouldn't be overly strange would it? Given the fact that kanaya is essentially a vampire troll, and the eternal struggle of vampires and lycans
Anonymous asked: i have a small question/theory regarding limebloods. yeah, they were made pretty much extinct, but given the sheer number of trolls in every nook and cranny of the galaxy, there must still be a couple lurking around somewhere. thus, i wanted to know if my [Alternian] fantroll is made any less special snowflake by being practically afraid of her blood colour, perhaps even moreso than Karkat was...
Anonymous asked: How do we submit to the blog now? The FAQ and About pages only have 'filler' written in them.
Anonymous asked: Well I'm in the process of making a troll and I honestly can't find something that says if there's a certain format you need to follow for making a trolltag or a Chumhandle. So do you have any tips? I seriously need help, and I feel a bit dumb for asking...
Re: Our friggin' awesome new theme/icon
Dudes and ladies, our sweet admin Q just gave the blog a sassy new theme that I played around with (I think I made it worse) and it is MUCH BETTER than the gross pucey pink thing we had going on, so check that out if you want. Also notice the handy-dandy bar on the bottom of the blog page thing that will take you to affiliates, links to the mods’ blogs, that kind of thing. Once again,...
Anonymous asked: My troll is pretty much a free spirit, and doesn't like attachments or burdens. However, filling quadrants is a really big deal. I don't really want to change her character (but it isn't out of question), so do you think there's any way to get around this?
Anonymous asked: Is it okay if you have a troll that's into telling the future?
Anonymous asked: How do you feel about changeable weapons? Like Kanaya's case. I have a troll who has Flamethrowerkind, but I'm thinking of adding leafblowerkind. Do you think that's okay?
Anonymous asked: You've mentioned that snake-themed trolls have a bad rap before, and I was wondering if you could list a few examples of things to avoid doing for myself and other people looking to use the same theme?
Anonymous asked: I just wanted to ask, can you think of any good quirks for a music-themed troll? She's a yellowblood, and her symbol is a musical triplet, though I've been kind of considering actually changing it to a bass clef to match her horns. In fact, I'm probably going to be doing that when I do my big redesign on her. I'm just looking for suggestions, since her current quirk is...

Anonymous asked: Hello! Question for fankids planets- I remember how the Beta kids had a certain connection of the theme of their planets (The four elements and their Aspect connection) as well as the Alpha kids (Some kind of burial ground and gas element). Do you think a natural disaster and type of rock would be an ideal combination? (Land Of Earthquakes and Shale, Land of Tornadoes and Sand, ect.)
museof-heart asked: Would it be acceptable for an orange-blood(what I call Tavros' color/caste, even though its not really orange. :v) to live in a relatively cold and mountainous area? Being that low on the hemospectrum I can't really see them being at all near the sea, so?

Anonymous asked: Okay, so I'm working on a yellow blooded Mage of Blood fantroll, and I really like the idea of him using his excess of blood as a weapon, either through telekinesis or whatever. However, I'm worried that's too Marry Sue-ish. :x Thoughts please?
Anonymous asked: I was wondering if you guys could answer a question on titles. I have a fankid who basically runs a time postal system, sending different objects through time so they arrive at the most convieniant moments. She would basically be secretly commanding the whole session. (She would have some limits to make her not OP) O was thinking page or muse of time? I dont know, but I would love your opinion on...
Anonymous asked: would it be ok to have a "glitch" in our sgrub session... like Trickstermode, but not. (we have a planet that clones our AU fantrolls- called PTC forms... where you can have a Negative, Positive or Division form [haha math]) + it ties in with the fancherubs that seem to pop in here and then since they're ursaminor (-) and ursamajor (+)
Anonymous asked: I have this headcanon that troll horns are based on grub behavior- Tavros has giant ones because he's not the attacking time, whereas Karkat probably rammed everything ever with his tiny grub head and thus squished them down; has anything canon jossed that yet? I mean, ignoring the ectobiology thing where they're blatantly tiny versions of the way the trolls looked in their intro pages.

Anonymous asked: Decided I wanted another fantroll, and she's going to be a teal blood who's based of Caduceas because Trauma Center is like an amazing game. I want to use a Kirin for her Lusus but I don't want to use any of those snake on a stick symbol, since that's overdone. ALSO BECAUSE SNAKE PUNS S'S EVERYWHERE ARE TERRIBLE. I already have an idea for a typing quirk, so that's...
Anonymous asked: I noticed you mentioned in reply to another anon that happy friendly trolls were fairly untroll-like, but is it alright if there is a particular reason behind it? My other trolls are, in that sense, quite troll-like otherwise.

Anonymous asked: Hii again! I'm the anon who asked about the baking troll quirks! I just wanted to say thank you real quick before asking. Can a troll have antler-like horns? Not like Vriska's where it splits into a pincer-like shape, but more of a stag or moose's antlers.
Anonymous asked: Did you get Oberon? I resubmitted him.
Anonymous asked: Hi I was wondering if basing fantrolls on constellations (ex. Karkat is Cancer, Vriska is Scorpio, etc.) was a good idea? I read somewhere that it was a good addition to fan characters.

Anonymous asked: I've got a fantroll who resents responsibilities and commitments. So, to make her less Mary Sueish, I decided to make her a Space player. I'm kinda wondering if I should make her a teal blood or a jadeblood, do you think a jadeblood is a bit much? I don't really want to make her overly troubled.

Anonymous asked: I have a seadweller fantroll who feels a little too "violent" and "competent" to me. By competent, I mean is way too much like a mass murderer. How can I balance this out? It's a he, by the way. Aren't female trolls more capable than male trolls, usually?
Sprite: Skylah Corvus
[[MORE]]Okay, so~ I have some sprites for my fantroll, Skylah. I just wanted to know your take on them, like, is the sizing of the horns right, is the hair not too out of control, etc. Although, I might submit her full intro and description for the review later. I am quite proud~ She’s a freakin’ cutie. Well done. - Mod Cait
