Main Plot Ideas

Post  Acalanatha on Sat Aug 25, 2012 10:21 am

Sorry I clogged Derpiihooves' DA with this idea.

I just thought it would funny if the main plot was that the male main protagonist is forced to go to the all female wing of the school and Dean Molestia was being all the etchi-ness that was occurring.

I can't wait to see the final product.

I'm still not entirely sure how to respond. The game is a very emotionally-charged story. I'm constantly moved by the amount of passion that our writers put into making a very heartwarming experience. So no, it's not a game that exploits any sexual tropes to the extreme that you mentioned on the dA post, but I think that everyone will probably find something to enjoy.

When I had applied for being a writer for the Pinkie Pie route, I had developed an entire arc within a few minutes in my head. Much like Katawa Shoujo, Kanon, Shuffle!, etc., there is much room for putting emotionally striking pieces into an eroge. But, just like Clannad, it doesn't have to have the sexual content to be an emotional and visual masterpiece.
I am very eager to see where the writers take this VN... I, much like many others, was hoping to be a part of the Dev team for this. Unfortunately I didn't make it, but I can't really complain. For one, many, MANY other people who are probably a hundred times more talented than I am applied. And two: I'm just damn glad this thing is being made in the first place.

So sorry. All of the Japanese games/CG's I've ever seen have been of "that" variety to some degree.

But seeing how much effort, love, attention and emotion being put into this game makes me excited to the see the final product no matter kind of game it is.
Even just the concept work is amazing.

Thank you for your hard work and time to send a donation.

Don't sweat it. We've intentionally been very vague about the game up to this point. You can expect some more concrete details to trickle out now that we have a full writing staff.

If anyone was a tsundere i would go for Twilight or Rarity, seems to fit with their characters, don't know what Rainbow Dash would be thoughh, apart from that Pinkie would be the manic pixie dream girl of the group.

I actually have to agree with simonheros on this one. I see it like this:

Rainbow Dash - The tsundere one, who likes to skip school. Can be pretty bulky and aggressive on the outside, but on the inside she has a caring and loving heart. This can be seen very well in Season 2's "Read it and Weep". The protagonist is pushed around by her, as she forces him into things like exercising with her. She keeps her word in anything she promises, no matter how crazy that promise may be.

Rarity - The character that does things her own way, which is usually very creative (Pinkie may be random with her solutions to things, but Rarity actually plans things out rather than "somehow, it just works"). More brains than brawn (she may seem like she's not smart, but she is. Refer to Season 1's "Dog and a Pony Show", and Season 2's "Sweet and Elite".), though she can be rather clueless and absent-minded at times. She is very generous, and likes to help people out in tight situations.

Applejack - The character with a bulky figure. She tends to solve problems with force, but only when she is pushed to a corner and has no other choice. It wouldn't have to be fights, either. Even though she can be rather hot-tempered over things, she is , like Rainbow Dash, especially honest with everything she does. She makes sure anything she does goes exactly as she planned. She puts her friends before herself to the point where it harms her (Refer to Season 1's "Applebuck Season"), and I can see the protagonist helping her with this issue.

Pinkie Pie - Pretty much any super moe hyperactive anime girl. Very lively/energetic (though you never see her do as much sports as Rainbow Dash, she is moving all the time), and would very often break the 4th wall. She is a lot smarter than what she shows on the outside. I imagine the writers having a field day with all the potential 4th wall jokes and the protagonist telling Pinkie to stop. She's generally very trusting in her friends, but sometimes that ends up getting the best of her. Seeing Pinkie Pie having this sense of insecurity, I see the protagonist comforting her over the issues, but sometimes it backfires on him as well.

Twilight - The basic heroine for your typical bishoujo. She is nice most of the time, but is not really one to open up to new ideas. She likes to look for "reasons" in anything she does, and uses logic/facts to deal with situations. Often, Twilight likes helping people, though she doesn't always make the best decisions. She tries to keep everything in order (By which I mean, as far as following a daily schedule and being very precise about it), but the protagonist wouldn't take her as seriously as everybody else would. As the story progresses, though, I see the protagonist realizing he wouldn't take her seriously enough, and this would ultimately lead to drama.

Fluttershy - Nice most of the time and tries to keep everything in order, much like Twilight. The difference here is that she's super shy and isn't as powerful in her words as Twilight, so nobody really listens to her. I imagine the protagonist would tease her a lot. If she has to (even for her own selfish reasons), she can explode very suddenly, and suddenly becomes a force not to be reckoned with. I can see a few unexplainable things happening here too, like her aggressiveness giving her sudden strength to break through cement walls or something.

.... if any of that made sense to you. I think this mindset would work best for these characters personally, though I'd love to be surprised by whatever the final game comes up with.

That made sense but i do not agree with your conclusions, i'll answer with my opinions on each character but not what each path will be as it is an area i am keeping off my mind for the surprise in the end.

Rainbow Dash - While she seems like the perfect fit for a tsundere i don't quite believe she is one, as the pieces may all be there they don't quite make a picture. She is a jerk and confrontational, but the tsundere has a caring heart that she denies the existance of, (Or vice versa), she is willing to show that she is caring and loyal to her friends, she will be a jerk and harsh to the main character but she treats it in the same way a sport's coach insults the team in all those 'Based on a true story' underdog films. The only defrosting we are likely to see is her admitting that she may have feelings for someone due to her tomboyish and rather childish personality.

Rarity - She is smart and she knows how to use it, i put her in the tsundere listing because it has been shown how she knows what she wants and how to make it happen, but she is also the element of genorosity, this makes the tsundere harder to be likely as a tsuntsun doesn't show her kindness, i am unsure about her in general as i haven't really cared for her as she is one of my least favourite characters in the show.

Applejack - Pretty much, she is the big sis of the group who is there for them even if it harms her, but she isn't the agressive type unless they have really annoyed her, going more for a 'kiss and make up children' reponse to problems.

Pinkie Pie - Manic Pixie Dream Girl, in every part of the character type, she has hidden depths and is not as idiotic as she looks Luna Lovegood style, but she is pretty insane though the best attachment to a MPDG is a cloudcuckoolander, not as much trying to fix a problem for her but more enjoying the ride.

Twilight Sparkle - I was thinking more of the nerdy straight arrow of the group trying her best to keep them under control, she is more focused on the task in hand than her friendships at times she really does care, as underneath she is a low level kuudere, with a rather cold outside and a warm inside.

Fluttershy - The shrinking violet of the group, she is not as much keeping the peace but keeping herself out of the fire in an attempt to avoid confrontation with others, while she will break out of this if she needs to help her friends, she is less likely to do it for herself. But i find the teasing to be unlikely, as even Hisao with his idiotic logic isn't as social inept and rude to start teasing the shy girl.

These are my thoughts on the characters in comparisson with your conclusion.

I discussed this a bit with my friend, and revised my previous post. I agree with Applejack and Pinkie Pie, and you pointed out some things that I hadn't, though I do want to mention things about the rest:

andy25100 wrote:Rainbow Dash - While she seems like the perfect fit for a tsundere i don't quite believe she is one, as the pieces may all be there they don't quite make a picture.

Actually, you pointing that out, I agree with you. Dash doesn't fit for a tsundere, but everything I've stated other than calling her that, I still stand by. If anybody, I imagine Twilight being the tsundere.

Yeah, I wouldn't say Rarity's the tsundere. Like I added in my revised post, she's the creative one in my eyes. Also worst pone? D:

I agree with her trying to take care of her friends, but sometimes doesn't do it the best way (I actually revised that in my post). I don't agree with her being a kuudere, though. She shows care in everything she does, and makes it pretty clear too. Examples of this include "Feeling Pinkie Keen" and the final season 2 episode, where she drops her emotions on her friends about her brother constantly.

She is definitely one to avoid conflicts whenever she expects one. She likes to help, but only if she knows it will not harm her. If she has to, though, she will help, but by that point she usually snaps.

As far as teasing goes, I'm pretty sure most people would, as it would most likely be a major cause of some of her phobias in the first place. Not to mention, she already has a past experience of being bullied/teased by others in Season 1's "Cutie Mark Chronicles". I actually envisioned the protagonist to make more of a friendly kind of teasing, much like how Yuuichi Aizawa teased his cousin and the main heroine Ayu in Kanon.

I think we have both reached a general consensus on the opinions of the characters as i haven't got any more to really add especialy with the amount of information we have on the characters. But yes, Rarity is my least favourite pony as i find her annoying, haughty and sometimes inept in how she deals with her problems.
