Thank you, Rooney! I like the posture of this potential kick.

That's cool, Melody; I like that color scheme and the "SV" text. I also think the cut-off dark hand pinching the kernel is very well-drawn.

Thank you!

Is Meander's metanoia resembling somebody with ADHD, possibly concentrating on too many things at one time and losing the big picture in the process?

According to my notes on this style, it is a representation of what ADHD has the potential to become given time for evolution. Those with ADHD and similar attention deficits cannot focus on any one task for very long, but those who have surmounted the negative aspects of short attention spans and mastered their ADHD are able to juggle many tasks at once. This neurological trait could become very useful in our increasingly complex and diversified world. It was Meander's misfortune that he was trying to apply this ability without the neurological structure required to support it.

As for SV representing an individual with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, I think that this is only partially true; he is more focused on the catharsis of his past, and whatever it takes to create that. He doesn't seem to be continually drowning in the details like a person with a truly debilitating Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder. Malice is a complex subject, and SV is avoiding breaking that down like how Meander had to break "intelligence" down into "attention". I think he bit off way more than he could chew. (pun intended)

Many years ago, NofNA was originally conceived to showcase a variety of psychological and neurological disorders, but it has since evolved from that and now showcases the stories and situations that surround and create people and history, disorders or none.

That's a good analysis; Because NofNA takes a lot of energy to make, some aspects of internal story structure may be reused. I agree with Stella though: in the future, different structures may emerge.

I do think it's interesting that, so far, the male leads have taken precedence in being the catalysts for the stories. I have a truckload of female leads for future stories. Let's see where they take us.

Personally, the only martial arts experience I have is book-studying some wu shu and wu shu theory, as well as having a friend who has been attending wu shu classes for many years. (I also took Tae Kwon Do twenty years ago, but it hardly counts as practically none of that has been committed to long-term memory). The gross majority for what you see in NofNA is my 10+ years of interest in psychology and neurology, and how those aspects of the mental landscape manifest in human behavior. Learning about psychology and its sociological counterpart gave me a real respect for the human brain that I don't quite have for other animal brains (yet?). It is a really incredible organ in us.

Through NofNA, I hope to continue to share what I've learned in an entertaining fashion. I think there will definitely be a running theme (or themes) that will become more apparent as more stories are added.

Very creative, Kiniro!

I have a backlog of gift art to update the gallery with, but when I do, I'll put this in.

Thank you Stella! You're right. I do enjoy the "lion's mane".

Hey Zinou,

That made my day. What a great image! Sure shows me up...

It'll be interesting to see readers' reactions to future arcs as well. There are some controversial arcs planned.

Due to inactivity, the roleplay forums have been moved (or archived) into their own forum:

If you'd like, you may still log in and continue your personal stories.

It looks very nice, Kest. The dynamism of the crossing leap comes through clearly.

I'm not sure if I was supposed to, but I've gone ahead and placed it in the reader art folder.

I just want to let everyone know that a NofNA fancomic is A-OK with me.

Especially if it's an arc of your own design!

As per your request, the archives have now been updated.

Hi RC,

Currently, I don't have plans for that kind of interconnecting story. We'll see.
14  Main / NofNA / Re: Syncope on: July 22, 2008, 08:41:00 PM
I do think that's why he named himself Syncope. Technically speaking, the act of syncopation is a brief disruption or suspension of rhythm or structure. It could be in the sense of a physiological glitch. But it also has application in music and linguistics.

Zinou, of course, please post it anywhere you like. I don't claim any ownership; you're certainly free to do what you will with such a nice piece, including sale.
