DDLC - Write Me An Ending: Retrospective/Making Of
WARNING: Doki Doki Literature Club Spoilers!

DDLC: Write Me An Ending *LIVE*, Retrospective and Making Of...

On February 23rd, 2018, about 24-28 viewers tuned in to what was supposed to be a simple comedic playthrough of a modded Doki Doki Literature Club game. What they got was a little more than they bargained for: fake blood shooting through the screen, rearranged scenes involving Monika, and more. The stream went over pretty well, and you can briefly watch an archived version of here until March 9, 2018.
With that, I'd like to talk about what led to this stream, what went into it, and what I plan to fix in the future.
What led to DDLC: Write Me An Ending...

I've been pretty low-key on my like of DDLC. My blind reaction was essentially, "Yeah, I know where this is going, but it's cool anyway." I'm a fan of the wave of post-modern games that have been coming ou

A Thing on Glory and Fame: A Small Rant
So for a bit, I've been hearing/getting messages about how "I'm only in it for the fame and glory" and things like that when it comes to what I do. Which you all know, I make SFM posters when the ideas are hot on my mind.
I would like to open up and say that, I have never thought about the glory, the fame, or anything close to that when it comes to SFM. You do not have to believe me when I say it, to each their own accord. But, I make SFM posters because it's something I love doing. It helps take my mind off of the negativity and it's fun as hell being able to share my ideas. Also, it helps distract me from my own negative thoughts.
Yeah, I know that I've been using SFM for like. . . Two years now? Can't recall, honestly. But, I really only started getting heavily into advanced lighting as of recently. Being a slow learner sucks. I already know that I have a long way to go before I can be considered "good". And I will do my best to improve every bit I can, even if it's ju

39%
17 deviants said Making Of Featurette - A faux documentary of the making of WotA, with the actors giving behind-the-scenes interviews, b-roll footage of on-set shooting, and other trivia facts like how the actress for Seija is classically trained.

13 deviants said Alternative Facts of Eastern Utopia Adaptation - Follows Aya after the events of WotA as she uses her newfound press to make a tabloid, only to learn a lesson about the dangers of fake news.

10 deviants said Seija's Side of the Story - A running commentary of WotA by Seija, followed by an adaptation that depicts Seija as the hero and everyone else as bloodthirsty villains.

4 deviants said Escape of the Amanojaku - Going a bit off the rails, Seija is given to Rikako for research, being the only amanojaku ever captured. However, using trickery and mindgames, Seija plans her escape. This would be portrayed as a horror story.
I'd like to give a huge thanks to everyone who wished me a happy birthday! Here's to a good 30th year!

To put in in perspective, that's about 4 years of Garry's Mod, 10 years of theater, 8 years of Touhou. I've been around a while. Personally, I'm okay with growing older: just more experience to rack up!
Half of me is worried I won’t get Wrath of the Amanojaku done on time for the DDC five-year anniversery deadline. In addition to bouts of writer’s block and lack of time when I don’t, I’m also scared that something could happen in the walfas community between now and then that would require more attention, or at least hinder my ability to get help with the comic.

But the other half of me remembers the message of the comic: to never give up in the face of hopelesness, in the face of an enemy whose only driving desire is to see you and your friends suffer, in the face of losing everything you hold dear and everyone you care about. If I’m gonna finish this comic, I also gonna have to live by it.
And now, a short PSA on art theft for those who don't quite seem to understand art theft.

To help those of you who have trouble understanding art theft, here is a simple test whether or not you have committed art theft or not:
Question 1: Did I make what I uploaded?
A. Yes, because I sat down and actually made every little bit of it.
B. Yes, because I uploaded it to my account. Somebody else did all the hard stuff, but since it's on my account, it must mean I made it!
C. Sort of. I used pre-existing assets from another artist.
D. No, but I'm re-uploading it from another site for one reason or another.
E. No, but nobody's going to know otherwise!

If you answered A, then you're not an art thief! Congratulations!

If you answered B, not only are you an art thief, but you're also too stupid to even realize you're an art thief. When people call you out for being an art thief, you literally cannot comprehend it's your fault and why nobody believes you made what you did while they link to the original. I pity you. Please get help.

If you answered E, you're a vanilla art thief, but beware: we live in an age where anyone can look up anything, and anyone can link back to the original artist and prove you're a thief.

If you answered C or D, then it's time for Question 2: Did I credit the original artist?
A. Yes.
B. No, because it's a publicly available asset or made with a program that does not require credit/permission.
C. No, but it doesn't matter: I just want more people to see this person's work.
D. No, because I should get all the credit!


If you answered A, you're still not an art thief! Now let's hope you have permission to use their assets.

If you answered B, you're not an art thief! Transformative works, works using publicly available assets, or art made with pre-fab programs are all original art in themselves, and it'd be a hassle to give credit every single time; especially if the program or assets are widely used. In the least, at least tell us what program you used or where you got the resources. (Special thanks to Reimu-and-Cirno for pointing this one out.)

If you answered C, you're not an art thief, but it's bad manners to not credit the original artist. Go credit them: at least people will thank you for showing them the original artist.

If you answered D, you're an art thief for claiming the credit for somebody else's work. Give them the damn credit!

And remember, folks: just because you uploaded it to your page doesn't mean you automatically "made it" unless you actually did make it.

Project updates, personal news, and daily advice (unless I'm sick or something comes up) can be found on my Tumblr blog.

I'm an writer, musician, tutor, animator, voice actor, artist, quasi-life coach, and generally nice guy.

I make satirical comics, animated comedy videos, and tons of guides on everything from writing to psychology. I specialize in prefab programs like Garry's Mod, Walfas, MMD, ComiPo, and so on. I mainly use them as outlets for my writing.

I'm a huge Touhou fan (as you might tell by half the content on my page) and own virtually all of the games (yes, I do play the games), and although I'm pretty knowledgeable about the series, I'm not the "end-all-be-all authority" on Touhou: all of my knowledge comes from Touhou Wiki and the guidebooks. I tend to be vocal about emphasizing good ol' vanilla content, but I still think you're free to do what you want. (I will warn you that non-vanilla content has always been hard, no matter the series.)

As much as I like making stuff, my goal is to help other people make stuff. I do my best to help people hold higher standards for themselves both online and offline. In addition to all of my writing and Walfas guides, I also write tons of psychology/self-help guides based on stuff that's help me and others. Again, I'm no expert: I just really like sharing ideas I think others would find useful.

One of my big goals is to help improve both the Walfas community and its public image within the Touhou community. We've already come a long way from the early days in 2008, and it's already gotten to a point where the Walfas community has been invited to speak at multiple anime conventions. My hope is to continue I raising the community's standards higher so that Walfas becomes even more widely accepted among Western Touhou fandom.

If you meet me, please don't treat me like some superstar or infallible god: I just make the stuff I make as a hobby, and all I really want is to fit in, help people out, and have fun. If you hang out in the Walfas community long enough, you will encounter me, and you'll find I'm just an ordinary guy behind the insanely high production values and personal standards. I'm not omnipotent, so don't treat me as such (it never ends well for anybody). Treat me as you would treat your friends. (Or, if you're socially awkward, treat your friends as you would treat me.)

You may use any of my original characters or my DNA in any of your projects without my permission unless I explicitly say, "Don't do that." Of course, this is extremely rare, so go ahead and use them. All of my OC DNAs are in this thread, but my most used DNAs are down below.

I have a very, VERY sarcastic sense of humor, but if I include you as a cameo, it's because I admire you or your work, so any off-color jokes I make are only out of good fun. (In real life, I actually avoid being a smartass because it's actually quite harmful to both the self and others. I believe it should only be reserved for writing satires because it's a powerful tool for getting points across.)

I am also very, VERY critical: I have absurdly high standards for art of all mediums, but not to be a jerk, but because I think everyone has more potential than they think. We're all prone to mistakes (even me), but some do more than others, and I want to help them become the best whatever they can be. My biggest lesson to everyone is this: you are better than you think you are, always.
