I keep thinking I wanna rename it something with a more enigmatic sound...but the whole reason I never made one of these is I could never think of anything.

@trinity-blue: Thinking of names for a character or for something like this is definitely a challenge.

@ultra-woman: I have an easier time with characters, usually. Sometimes it's hard, but I can usually come up with something. (Although coming up with something where someone else hasn't used it, it's always the opposite. When I find myself thinking "there's no way this one's being used," it's been taken...usually by someone with like 5 posts, or worse, who never posted at all. And when I'm just taking shots I find something fairly plain like "Antonia" apparently wasn't taken.)

Concepts and locations, that's where I struggle with names the most. I wish I had Gambler's gift for naming. LL was pretty good with that too.

@trinity-blue: Yeah, true. Characters usually are easier for me too. Super-Hero names are harder, though. And the challenge for me there is very similar to your own experiences. "Surely, that one isn't taken!" And I think I've come up with this really cool super-hero name. Nope. It's taken by someone else...

I also struggle with concepts and locations. So I usually end up just going with what makes sense to me and running with it.

@ultra-woman: And I'm fine with having the same name as someone who's not around anymore. Just when it comes to the particularity of the account name, it's a mild inconvenience. Or like I was originally gonna make Trinity's hero name "Solace," fell so hard in love with it, then I discovered Sha was already using it since before I even got here. Although in hindsight, I'm glad for that because then I wouldn't have been forced to come up with something which led me to Seraph.

Honestly, probably the best solution for that particular problem. Otherwise you just end up sitting on a bunch of nameless non-executions.

@trinity-blue: Considering what Seraph means, I think it's rather pretty, ironic and very appropriate at the same time. Depending on the source, it can mean "Angelic" or "Fiery one". It's very suitable for Trinity since in my mind she looks rather angelic but she has a fiery temper. ~_^

For me, it's coming up with Super-Hero names that aren't taken rather than other users. Take Superion, for example. I came up with that by combining Superman and Hyperion. I thought I was clever until I looked it up and saw Superion is also the name of a Transformer! Grrr. Starlight is also another one I use for Akira Hoshi and then the Boys TV show comes out and guess what? Yep. Annie calls herself Starlight and I wanted to choke whoever created the character. *LOL*

Honestly, probably the best solution for that particular problem. Otherwise you just end up sitting on a bunch of nameless non-executions.

Yep and speaking for myself personally, I hate unfished concepts. I want to write it out and put it out there. So I just slap on a name and call it good. :)

@ultra-woman: There're a few reasons I chose it. Always nice to see other people making some of those reads.

Ohhhh, having a name be taken already is one thing, but it's always the worst when you come up with something (a character or concept, name or principles) and are specifically thinking that you're being original, only to find out it's already in use. I've started to learn to roll with that punch a bit better, and sometimes even just say "screw it, I'ma do what I want anyway," but it's been the case both with other CV writers and with other fictional media (comics and otherwise).

The pains of being a perfectionist...Although occasionally waiting has paid off. One thing I could work on is being more comfortable with retcons. One of the reasons I hold onto stuff so long is I hate the idea that I might attach a concept to a character, not use it (or the character) much, and later want to attach it to another. And most people are okay to just retcon something if it needs to be, but I act like I'm allergic to it/it'll kill me if I have to retcon.

Pt.1

Reality-M
Reality-M

Each imagined explosion caused his unconscious body to jump. Each word mumbled under his breath felt weighted and lasting. In Quintus' concussed mind he was back home, back in Reality-M fighting the last war his universe would ever know. He rapidly awoke however next to a quaint wood-stuff and a humble family - father, son, daughter and mother - who had seemingly taken him and nursed his wounds.

The father was a burly outdoorsmen but approached the Noir Rose with caution. And a bowl of hot soup.

"Easy guy. Its okay you're safe here."offering his optimistic reassurance.

"Wh...where am I? What happened?" trying desperately to clear his mind of all the clutter and confusion as he tried to recall the most recent events of his life

"My name is Jon. Jon Bisping and this is my family. You're about two hours south of Montreal in the Adirondacks. My boy and I found you while tracking a wolf who's been sniffing around our cabin. This" motioning for his wife and children to come closer, "this is my family."

While the charitable samaritan proceeded to introduce his loved one's, the 66th Arashikage was beginning to recall what exactly had transpired, why he was so far away from Gothic and why he was so badly injured.

"I gotta go."Abruptly Quintus ignored the soup, propping himself up with a grunt while joints cracked and muscles spasmed.

"I understand. Let me get my rifle and I'll help escort you out of here." Jon offered.

Quintus agreed with a silent nod and before long the father, son, and mamba were trekking through the remote region. Very few words had been offered or shared. Clearly still feeling the effects of his disorientation, Quintus still managed to start asking himself the more obvious questions. But before he could voice these issues;

"Over here for a minute I wanna show you something.""I need to get back to Gothic. I dont have ti"Quintus paused as he looked around his surroundings. 'when did we get here? how did we end up in a cave?- he thought.

"This way, Arashikage."Jon's voice echoed out from a deep descending path of darkness.

"WHO ARE YOU!"but the Urban Ronin's demands went unanswered. He followed the path as the sunlight behind him grew dimmer and dimmer until a torch lit stairwell seemingly revealed its secret location directly in front of him.

Now motivated by anger more then curiosity Quintus' pace quickened. And before long, as if summoned by the forbidden magic of the original shinobi's, a monolithic stairwell appeared, and eventually bled out into an enormous opening. Not an opening, a ceremonial ring. Sacred. Mystical.

The son and father were nowhere to be seen, but Quintus did not bother looking.

"I know its you. Raysh. No more theater, no more games. Show yourself."

"You know. You're not very intelligent for being. Me" He appeared as if the shadows had manifested a form directly behind the Noir Rose. Immediately Quintus spun on his heels uncorking a stylish, but slow revere crane kick.

"I am disappointed. Of all the infinite worlds. The countless realities. The one alternate version of me who has managed to cross realities and survivor is but a pathetic imitation. But I am going to change all that."

Suddenly Quintus was arrested on all sides by the mythical League of Shadows. Pulling and dragging him behind the towering shilloute of the cloaked Raysh Al Shaytan. The original Knightfall."I've found it you know. Well, not it, more accurately stated; I found one of them. And look"gesturing towards an almost blinding green luminescent pit several yards away.

"Its an anti-life equation. The key to immortality. Or so the legends go"quickly Raysh removed his sabre before plunging it deep through Quintus' startled chest."There is but one way to find out."he smiled, before the League instinctively tossed their captive in.

"Mad, sane, rejuvenated or not. Kill him when he comes up." The Devil's Head instructed
