All /co/ Creations and Characters, Third Edition.
Settings and other projects also welcome.

Second edition is still good as of posting this one, but they're saying everything's getting moved to the archives soon.

There's a wiki now for these:
http://the-conservatory.wikia.com/wiki/The_/co/nservatory_Wiki

If any character or project is already popular enough (as in art, stories, or in-depth interest) then they'll probably have their own thread, so this one is more for miscellaneous discussion of new or underdeveloped things.

Only crimes listed in the logs are minor ones on Neo-Australia. Things like disturbing the peace and obstruction of justice (n the sense of some vigilantism), but the locals didn't really care enough to arrest her.

Things that happen on the human colony world wouldn't transfer over into her space file since the PKs don't give a shit about humans yet.

I'm thinking PK territory would be scattered and not a solid area.

I think a whole team of Azalfi PK agents was suggested, sounded like a plan.

That's cool. I just don't want her to become some sort of super-important figure. Like the whole of Azalfi peace relies on getting her back or some destiny shit like that.

I just think of her as one scoundrel among millions in the galaxy, just one from an unusual race.

Wasn't the original idea of the Peacekeepers that they use the people's own to police them? Similar to the Green Lanterns using locals, only in a more villainous light. It makes sense that there'd be Azalfi members of the force chasing her down in her own local system. And giving them different opinions and politics helps to get rid of the implication that everyone is a robot but Inva. There's different people, but their largely variations on a theme, rather than Inva who makes her own theme.

The PKs are still really poorly defined. I don't think they should borrow too heavily from lantern concepts, but yes, using a species' own was one of their things.

Another was doing mandatory recruitment of a certain percent of each world's population that they are protecting.

But since we haven't actually done anything with them yet, we can still pick and choose which aspects we want to use.

It's like how the spice cultists were being talked about like they were villains, but their actually just hot-blooded chefs. At worst they'd be Gary Oaks.

I like the idea that the PK's are extremely heterogenous, so that different "precincts" are governed by eccentric local PK chiefs who may have very different ideas about how to go about stamping out crime, or even what constitutes a crime. One precinct may have some fat Jabba the Hutt fucker in charge who is basically running it like a protection racket, another may have a super by-the-book Judge Dredd guy who clamps down on passing ships for having a smudgy registration number or a lewd decal on the hull. In others it may be a reasonable guy or girl who is just trying to get by.

That way you can easily also make stories where the stand-up PK from a law-abiding precinct ends up having to go beyond his jurisdiction and work in one that's totally corrupt, and similar.

This also works well with the idea that lots of different species work inside the organziation, though I will caution that some species should probably still be rare if their mentality is rather unlike the organized one the PK's run. Like spice cultists would rarely get involved, or Azalfi.

There has to be something that ties in all the different precincts together though, like some kind of central management.

Maybe there was a Cruixir disaster that spurred the organization into existence some dozens of generations ago and each branch has an agreement about which threats merit the full force of the organization.

They probably have overseers from the main Peacekeeper species, but attitudes to them are probably liable to change depending on the people. The male agent presented would probably be all down for them since he would see the mission and the law being the highest priority, while the female agent would be in it for her own people since fascism is inherently nationalistic.

So, more like what I understand the world government in One Piece is?
If we ever get to the point of making a crisis we could have the peacekeepers come to Earth, 'recruiting' for this sector of space and to weaken the government the Teuthoids pretty much run. But that's me thinking looong term.

The way I'm doing it, the Teuthoids aren't even in any parts of space where the PKs exist, they're in different spiral arms and there is very little talk between arms going on since there's a very big, mostly empty, distance between them that few ever bother venturing through.

There was some interaction a long, LONG time ago, but nothing happened outside of some races becoming aware of each other.

I have a plan near the end of the Teuthoid arc to change up the dynamics through trade routes, but I'm not going to go into detail since posting the plot outlines when it's not a comic usually kills any potential interest.

I would picture the PK's as the american police as portrayed in Hollywood movies. There is a central agency, a board somewhere distant that ostensibly sets policy and oversees. There are internal inspections and reports. But within the PK space there are THOUSANDS of precincts, and this is way way beyond what any kind of top-down control can handle. As such each PK "chief" (whatever we want to title them) has a very large say on jurisdiction, and only has to really worry about extremely infrequent inspection tours. They may not even come once in any PK officer's career! Whether the central PK agency is benevolent, indifferent or malevolent I would leave up to interpretation, but I have no plans in involving it anywhere. It exists, somewhere very far away.

I would not separate the established races way too far, personally, just for the simple reason that part of the charm of a space opera type setting (which this certainly is, much more than hard SF or anything) is to have the different species interact. Territories separated, sure, but not too distant. Perhaps inside the same quarter of the galaxy, or something, with possible "outsider" races arriving from beyond.

Side note: I have a very concrete short story in the works about the Vreen, which I previously hinted at in the third Inva story. There's a plan there, I promise, it's just that I don't want to blow it all in a text piece first.

Finally, I hope there's no danger that I'm killing the character of Inva by writing about her. If any of you feel that way, especially Log-anon, then i will immediately drop the writing, and you can of course consider everything I've done non-canonical anyway.

Trying to fit everything together while leaving plenty of room for more:
The old Azalfi empire on the Perseus arm, their greatest extent being around 15,000ly across.
Besides the core worlds, it's now a mishmash of feudal Ssura and PK. Pacifying Ssura makes slow expansion.
The Vreen... presence on the outer arm. Maybe they traveled slowly before Azalfi made hyperdrives known.
Teuthoid gov on the Sagittarius arm, resource oriented so every system is incorporated, so slow expansion.
Teuthoid gov and PK are starting to claim opposite ends of our Orion spur.

Not that I don't mind, but where are the other /coc/ people? Nobody wants to talk about lewdibutt or Shark Lass or /co/ntainment here?

See, I'm playing this as "the galaxy is big, really big, much bigger than most people even think the universe is and that means the the universe is just that much more incomprehensibly big".

The Teuthoids are in a different spiral arm, it's like the Brits and the Chinese back in the day sort of thing. The races know there are other races really far away, but don't make much effort to interact unless it is convenient.
Convince can be dammed for all Cookie cares, he went out into space to see things no human has ever seen before, and then to see things that haven't been seen before by whatever new things he encounters.

>I hope there's no danger that I'm killing the character of Inva by writing about her.
There is absolutely no danger of that happening, if anything your stories are breathing life into her.

I'm the one writing the logs, I consider all the Inva stories to be canon and draw from them while writing her in the logs.

Before you started writing for Inva the only thing I had planned for her before joining the crew of the Pineapple Cake was that she'd been on Neo-Australia for some undetermined amount of time, working for the same delivery company that Desert Buckler works for, escorting/protecting armored road trains from the radiation filled coastal farmlands to the safe inlands.

She was going to be unaffected by whatever strange radiation causes 10% of humans exposed to it to mutate a little.

No one is using the new /coc/ board yet aside from us and the supermoms crowd.

Until the old boards get moved to archive, a lot of people will stick to their "/coc/ is inactive and dead, so I don't want to post there because it's inactive and dead" mentality.

Ladybug could have her own thread on here, issue 3 of the Lovely Ladybug came out fairly recently (when I typed these words), so there would be something to talk about in it.
The General Freedom comic and other Justice Coalition series would also get discussed there.

Shark Lass hasn't had much activity lately, don't know when Mandingo is going to get back to that.

And back to /co/smic stuff
I'd rather have it that the Teuthoids are still working on claiming all of their arm, because even one arm is unimaginably huge.
I'm making it one of my goals to make sure we never downplay just how fucking big the galaxy is.

It's so big that no race has ever seriously attempted to get to the nearest other galaxy because they've never been able to fully explore this one.

I was think that empires/coalitions etc would expand in a sphere, not linear. If they're close to the spurn it wouldn't make sense to -not- venture to it. The fact that we humans even know they exist would mean they are near.
Plus, we're kind of a bridge. Hold the bridge, stem the army onthe other side. We might be a no-mans land between superpowers.

Anyways, back to Destiny stream and hopefully motivation.

To me, it'd make more sense to expand to where there are more resources.

The space between arms is relatively empty compared to the space inside of the arms, so it makes sense to me to expand along the arm.

Plus inside the arm is fuck huge. You could expand in a sphere for 1,000 light years in all directions and still never leave the arm.

I think what /co/llator means is that territories are three-dimensional. You spread "up" and "down" from the galactic plane as well as out in the spiral arm. Thus territories are big spheres, or blobs. I tried making a map to illustrate the Azalfi expansion and contraction of territory but I haven't figured out how to do it.

I think the Ssura are pretty much all over since they tend to go nomadic and wander around looking for new technology to piler. They thus pop off little colonies everywhere. I have this idea that maybe each little Ssura fleet is like a pride of predators. There's an alpha couple who rule it, and as long as they are the strongest and canniest they stay in control, and if the population on the Ssura ships gets too big they drop some off at the nearest M-class planet, and so leave a trail of them in their wake. Eventually the alpha couple get too old and weak, or just get conspired against and get defeated and dropped off themselves. Or just killed.

The basic idea is that Ssura were uplifted at a point when they weren't ready for it, and thus are still very animalistic for a spacefaring species.

I'm pretty okay with the american-chinese simile, too.

I'll get to some more traditional planetary adventures for Inva eventually. I have a few ideas floating around at the moment. First off I want to rewrite the first chapter from scratch. Then possibly expand Iro's story into a full story of its own.

The whole /co/smic thing is turning out to be sort of a beta test for written stuff in /coc/.
I don't think that many people are reading the logs, but it's not like I'm going to stop doing them because of it.

The main thing I've gotten out of /coc/ are that ideas take a while to catch on, and I mean really catch on. Like 6 months to a year after initial chatter is usually when an idea will start to go somewhere if it's going to go somewhere.

If you still feel selfconscious about it, try visiting one of the threads where Batman yells at you to work on your writing, or one of /tg/'s writefag threads.

I'm pretty well aware of how bland and monotone the space logs I've been witting are.
Honesty I was hoping that other people would've joined in on it like what happened with the Lantern Logs, but that'll probably never happen since the presentation is too different, i.e. writing the after thoughts of characters from a show as if they were going crazy compared to making up completely new content in a format where everything is in past tense.
I'm not going to stop doing them, but I would like to get better at it or at least make them more interesting, somehow. I'm not sure how to do that though since I mainly started writing them just to keep momentum going with the /co/smic /co/verse concept rather than letting it fizzle out, I guess I succeeded in that regard at lest.

Current detours I'm thinking about, but haven't developed any:

-Aa planet where it's so hot, rocks evaporate during the day and rain down during the night.
-Something to do with a nitrogen geyser
-A planet with a sea of methane and some weird plants growing at the bottom
-An alcohol nebula snared in a young, piss drunk star's gravity

Well, fortunately I had already saved all the threads linked to on the wiki back during the April Fools nonsense. All this means is that all future /coc/ threads on /co/ will need to be saved before they 404 if no one steps up and takes foolz off the current owners hands.

If someone else would feel so inclined, then they could go through foolz saving every single /coc/ thread that has been archived there.
I think someone did that already, but I'd rather have confirmation than just assume they did.

We'll just have to create a mediafire or mega archive of zipped threads. Nothing new for me, I've been doing that for years now with other threads... which is kind of sad I guess.

Noted.

IMO, which I don't hold highly, the frontpage of the wiki should look like a frontpage or an index. Right now it's hard to find out what you don't know about already. Possibly divide into categories like: completely OC, mash ups, /co/razy antics. i.e. /co/verse, trinity and Cynthia von Doom, grieve-tan and M&M Show.

As for the Q&A itself, a bit wordy for the frontpage. Conduct is a bit silly of a thing to put there considering the userbase, and it made me think 'the hulks weight in bees' would be on the wiki considering what it says is OC.

Once again I consider my opinion shit, others would likely not care about half of this stuff.

See, I have no idea how to do anything fancy with the wiki. I had to look at /tg/'s wiki just to figure out how to do that thing at the top with the board blue.

The conduct thing came about because of edit wars, the one guy who tried deleting almost everything back in 2013, and the other guy who started shit over "copyrights".

Hulk's Weight in Bees actually could be on the wiki as a meme, but I tend to shy away from adding meme articles since there's a lot of stigma over memes all across 4chan. Spreadsheet Anon's intention for the wiki was for it to be for anything /co/ made up, but most people seem to think it is /co/verse exclusive; I'll add things that aren't /co/verse, but only if I'm actually aware of them.

I'm open to any suggestions about the Q&A, anything that needs to be added or trimmed, things that need better clarification, etc.

Didn't know about the edit wars.
Hulk's weight in bees is more of a though exercise, I see it cited from time to time like Schrodinger's cat.
I see the /co/verse weight as a result of the nature of it. Where other things come and go, /coc/ tries to make an expanding cast. Most banter on /co/ is about existing properties or Donut Steel webcomics.
Could make a small article for hypercrisis, link it to http://hypercrisis.wikia.com/wiki/The_Hypercrisis_Wiki or the doc for it.

I just feel the Q&A isn't the best way to describe it all, at least on the front page.

I noticed the Webb reboot when it was first posted, then I forgot about it when the thread 404'd, then I remembered it when I head foolz might be going away.
There's probably some Heartbreaker reboot stuff that still needs to be tracked down as well.

Let's all try to avoid another total archive loss like what happened in 2010.

Well that was a rather sudden 404. It usually takes longer than just an hour and a half for a thread to 404 on /co/.

-There was some more talk about the fishing trip to the Titian-like moon. Along with a time loop.
-A mini comic featuring /co/lette, Samefag, Manny Quinn, and Nicky Two-Vests got finished.
-An action sequence in the form of text about Fistress fighting the Full Body Beat Down merc. group.
-A lot of idle chatter about Britainment, Erin, Fantomas and the dimension hopping /co/axials, along with other misc. projects like a toon villain for Carnevalor.

And Lovely Ladybug issue 0 is out.

Hmm... thread on /co/ died in the 6am - noon hours, huh? If only there was a place to continue dicussion throughout the week until it's time for the next thread to be made. Oh, wait...

So someone was asking
>What is conrad's office like? Is it in a run down building or some sort of respectable office complex? Is it lived-in or brand new? Some sort of cluttered? What's the decor like?

I think his office would have the essential office stuff. The entrance connected to at least a medium sized room with a desk in the middle of it, a swivel chair that's only able to swivel one way without getting stuck, a map posted on the wall with pins stuck in it and notes that no sane person would probably understand, a book shelf stacks of comics on it and maybe some books on the upper shelves, a window with blinds that has a view of the street. Maybe some framed newspaper clippings up on the walls of successes he's had, maybe some failures as well to serve as reminders.
There should be a connecting door to an apartment behind the office with more stacks of comics blocking view from another, much bigger map with even more notes and lines connecting things on it. There should also be a computer in this room, a decent one, not a 10 years old one, but one that's not brand new either.

The office could be in the Noir District of /co/ve to give it that detective feel, or it could be in the Modern Day District if he's working for /co/ & Friends Insurance.

Also seemingly de-aged a bit, as she was (as the idea said) to take on a role that's almost sisterly with Strummer.

As well as her trying to be "rebellious" by dying her hair (but nothing stronger than that; it would be irresponsible to go too far), only to fuck it up and end up looking really silly and everyone (even Marion, and the suit of armor without a head) found it funny. I think the comparisons were "color of a highlighter pen" and "treefrog".

Her origin story has not been directly established beyond her being a catgirl with transforming cyberarms and wearing jetboots.

The character herself is somewhat sassy, energetic and EXTREMELY self-confident to the point it sabotages her activities such as crimefighting because she goes TOO HARD and TOO FAST at the problem she faces. As a side-effect to such self-confidence she is naturally competitive.

Dunno about the short one, only that she's a human mad-scientist with a cat-obsession that hangs around the frankenwaifu, acting as a humorous amplifier to whatever scene she's taking part in.

I admit I haven't frequented /co/ in a few years, but I never really saw her being posted at all, let alone plots and scripts being created. I haven't seen a new Golden Girl comic for much to long to call her alive.
You're right in that it's a bit silly to call porn threads of her being alive, but that's what I expect when their single outstanding dimension as a character is having abnormally large breasts.
As a matter of fact, the most recent non-porn comic I saw of her was made by /aco/.

I have been busy coming up with scripts to introduce the characters properly and also establish the leading ladies' backstories properly.

One of the things I noticed after sitting back and looking at all the GG stuff as a whole, is that a lot of the stuff is not presented in a way that is accessible to the reader. There's all this "lore" (fluff), but it isn't arranged in such a way that lends itself to a story, it's just paragraphs and character summaries on the wiki.
So now I've been taking that stuff and doing my best to convert them into scripts. If nothing else, that will at least help the fluff get integrated better into the whole of the GG project.
Of course I'm not really expecting any of them to ever be drawn, I know better than that looking at both BreastQuest and Supermoms.

A day ago as of posting this, I posted a bunch of scripts in the current /aco/ thread just to see how they'd react to what GG's actual character is. It's amazing how far out of touch they are, I thought for sure more of them had read the wiki or the pastebin given how often those links are posted over there.

Once I get some feedback on the way I've condensed GG's origin, then I'll get back to Jade Empress' script. From there, the Iron Girl saga looks very incomplete to me, so that also need work. The basic ideas are there, but they're just not fully formed yet. Once all the fluff and necessary character introductions are out of the way, hopefully we can get back to the root of GG by telling jokes and using more physical humor.

One thing I am concerned about is there being too much GG discussion in the /coc/ threads. Too much of any one subject tends to poison the well after a while, but this is what everyone else is talking about lately and my writing juices are finally working for me on GG.

Aside from GG, there are other things in /coc/ I want to discuss, but there just aren't any openings or interest.

Like, I want to work on a story with Harpoonist as the main character having just become a full fledged hero in his own right during the 1980s after Spearhead retires.
Harpoonist would be investigating Carver Medical, an institution that popped up seemingly over night and has technology way ahead of what should be possible for them. The more he looks into it, the shadier they seem until he uncovers that one half of the scientists running the show is the daughter of Professor Manticore, the evil mad scientist lady who experimented on Harpoonist when he was a child!

And it'd go into him accepting that people are not defined by their lineage (despite Dr. Carver using her mother's research journal) and that she's doing more good for the world than any super has by just stopping random criminals (short of actually saving the world anyway, like from a meteroite).

That's the kind of story I'd like to work on eventually anyway.
