Thread for Bubble Bucket and other Insomnia quests/crap.
Please keep this thread to:
*Discussion and arguments of quests.
*Theories about quests.
*Questions for Insomnia
*Pictures if you don't want to put them in the fan-art thread for who knows what reason.
Thank you and much love.
A larger portion either don't care or don't want them in the quest.
In addition to the fact that a partial handful are the only ones using them.
I am sorry for the inconvenience on a couple of people but please restrain image responses in my quests in the future for the consideration of other readers. Images are still A-OK on this thread of course.
[ A Couple Questions Regarding the Officers ]
>Why do you offer the ability to suggest for characters that are simply controlled by single players?
They are not controlled by a single player directly. Each character is set up to have two officers. In addition to that they are responsible to take into account all suggestions for the character they are in charge of.
In the PM'd example of:
Say the Options are A, B, or C.
All of the suggestions are for A.
Officer chooses C.
This is not the job of the officer, and if this is the chosen action then there better be a strong argument for the character to have not chosen A.
The main purpose of the officers is to minimize the micromanaging necessary for a five player tabletop game set-up turned into a quest, as well as allowing both the officers to have a little direct control over their chosen characters while still allowing the normal reader/suggester to give their ideas for both the main Direct Protagonist as well as the Four Indirect Protagonists without their input being meaningless.
I hope this makes it a little more clear.
My old unfinished One Shot is running this week until it either finishes, or Friday night.
I'd greatly appreciate anyone's participation in it.
Starting Monday, do you want me to update:
Lawyer Dog is Right for Once
Whichever is chosen will be updated 1-3 times a day or until the quest is finished.

"I know. Let's resolve our issues with a friendly handshake."
"I can agree with this."
It's closing in on two years since I started Bubble Bucket. The first near 500 updates of the quest are things of the past I am not actually that proud of. Partially because I know I could have done way better than that, and the rest is because that much of the quest was done in about five months. The next seven months were spent (not) updating two chapters. That was the first year of the quest.
The last approximate year has been one chapter alone. I've been incredibly upset with myself at my inability to move it along quickly. The multiple panel updates were definitely the cause. Single panel updates are quick to finish now that I am back to them. I am glad so many people enjoyed them, but they're done with sans special moments.
I wanted to do a slightly belated celebration of getting past 700 updates, and finishing the largest section of chapter 13. I asked a few quest artist buddies if they'd be interested in doing a guest update for me. I was pretty excited that they participated. I'm very happy how it turned out.
This quest has come a very long way, so I must give a big thank you to all of my readers. I also have to thank the people who drew and finished Section 4. All of you captured the scenes and mood of the updates very well and I am proud and thankful of everyone.
Here is a list of all the generous artists and their guest updates for Bubble Bucket.
If anyone else is interested in volunteering for a guest update, I more than welcome anyone who would like to. I have a handful of other artists that showed some interest in doing it. Get a hold of me if you would like to, I'm going to be slinging out updates to the best of my ability after a few more guest artists participate. I'll write another thank you and list once the second queue resolves.
I cannot thank all of you enough. I do not think there will be a third anniversary for the quest. If there is, it will be ending around that time. I love you guys.
Special thanks to CarbonF for Comedy Ending 002.
I SURE HOPE I'M NOT
But if the bandolier is under her shirt, then to actually use the keyboard thing she would need to... oh. I see what you did there.
I feel as though something is missing there.
Lawyer Dog is Right for Once is Completed.
Remember when I used to run update sessions? No, probably not.
August 15th @ 2PM GMT
until Chapter 13 reaches ending
August 20 @ 3AM GMT
Whichever comes first.
After the session, Quest break until I can get used to college schedule.
I am truly complimented at the winding down of Guest Artists back into normal updates. I really loved the way you guys used the palette for Section 5.
There are not enough words to say how great you all are. Thank you all for being wonderful friends.
Thank you all so much. Time for me to draw this chapter to a close!
Today marks the two year anniversary of Bubble Bucket starting.
I wish I had something special for everyone for the occasion, but I do not. I do have something 'big,' planned for the quest but I am not sure when that will happen.
Currently, I am in College. I have five classes, and 16 credit hours. This is a considerable amount of my time and focus. I would like to say I could devote more time into artwork, but things are not working out like that.
People keep asking me to resume Lilac as well.
I would love to set up a schedule or do sessions. If I do so, I will start next week.
Here are my plans:
Lilac: Update Monday and Thursday.
Bubble Bucket: Weekend Session.
Here's to one (hopefully) final year for Bubble Bucket.
As always, I love you guys. Take care.
Can't have a birthday without cake.
Happy birthday! I don't post much, but your quest is really fun and exciting, with an interesting world and a lot of neat-looking species. I had a hard time catching up, but I liked all of it.
One complaint I have, though, is with that part where a bunch of events were all happening at once, with different people giving suggestions to different characters and all of them listed sequentially in each post with almost nothing to divide the paragraphs. That was chaotic and slightly annoying to read. Then again, it would have been even longer if you hadn't done that, so maybe it was for the best.
While I agree they were chaotic and tedious, I did hard return separate time-lines and use italics to establish the point of view changed consistently after a point.
I also agree that it would have taken an incredible amount more time if I hadn't done it. I don't think I'd do it again though.
I try a lot of different things as I move along with the quest. I've learned a lot of good things, but I've totally made a lot of mistakes along the way.
>I'm not listed
this is a GROSS injustice!
Question and Answer Session #2
11 AM Central (-6 GMT) Saturday, September 24th.
Ask any questions concerning any quests I do.
My latest update seems to be not understood by like half the people I've asked.
The (2)Fate is not necessarily part of the question. I used the word fate and put the 2 in parentheses as a slight mechanics joke and a reminder you still have 2 since I removed the HUD.
The decision right now is how to handle Destruction, as he is approaching Epsilon.
I am very sorry for the confusion.
I have finals December 12-16. Which means I have 7 exams, a speech, and an essay to do. Which is further deepened by my next quest update being a flash animation.
(After the flash there will be a couple normal updates and then a flash to close the chapter).
At the very latest I will see everyone for the shark charity drive the day after my exams!
Take care. ♥
suggested favicon for /dis/ thread. Main quest thread already has one.
Now that shark stream is over all of my time will be devoted to either commissions or working on the flash(es) for Bubble Bucket. That time I asked for assistance for flash a long time ago--after I get some sleep would be the start. I am new to it.
Thank you for your patience. If it helps I have somewhere between a 3.7-4.0 GPA for my semesters of schooling. I'll know for sure what it is Wednesday.
Oh wow! I honestly thought this current semester was going to be a lot lighter in terms of work, but I was wrong. My finals are the start of May. Once my finals are over, I am moving out to my new home.
By May 15th, I will be returning to questing full time.
• Bubble Bucket – May/June
• Lawyer Dog is Right for Once 2 - May
• Last Words - July
• Lilac - Running
• (2) New One Shots once others finish.
I am very sorry for causing such a delay in my quests, especially Bubble Bucket. For those that care, I am at least doing very well in school! Thank you for your patience. I look forward to telling stories with you again. ♥
Looking forward to it!
Glad to hear you're doing well :) !
>Lawyer Dog is Right for Once 2
But he's already right about everything! What else can he be right about for once??? Also I dunno if "BE A DOG" will work as well a second time around... but hey, maybe you have some cool ideas planned for it? You haven't let me down so far (lack of updates notwithstanding).
fuck yes El Dirfo.
This is a farewell to my pony name, White Evening Cascade. We went through a lot together. Being as when I move we will never see each other again. You were very classy. Goodbye old friend.
This will be our final post together.
My PC was heavily damaged in shipping.
I've filed a claim, but it may be some time before I can resume my quests. Let's hope the hard drive is still functional!
I'm not asking for help this time. I'm just sorry. I really want to quest.
Let's hope for the best, I'm still drawing things.
I hope things turn out okay with the claim and that your hard drive is okay, Lilac Dream Song!! Get well soon, Octary's computer!!
Hope things get sorted out for you quickly. Good luck.
haha, aww. my desktop is the one broke, if my laptop was broken too I think I would be crying in a corner somewhere.
Thank you for the thing, we're working on it!
My new computer was dead on arrival, but the company covers it for a year, so it's being sent in to be repaired and the faulty part(s) replaced. It's put a damper on my productivity, plans, and mood. Things are delayed and there's not much I can do about it.
Finally up and running!
Thighs will begin flooding shortly.
LDIRFO2 should start soon.
Will be working on the flash for Bubble Bucket as I can get it finished, I will be working on this between thigh images/when I need a break.
All streams will be on http://www.octary.com
