โœจ Personal Updates: April 13th, 2021 โœจ

๐ŸŽ€ Hello, guys. I have a new updates/journal post today. I've got some new stuff to talk about and am excited for some stuff. So I figured I'd write a new update today.

๐ŸŽ€๐ŸŽ€๐ŸŽ€๐ŸŽ€๐ŸŽ€

๐ŸŽ€ First off, I finally got myself a job interview! I quit my first job in August of last year, so I've been job hunting since then. And someone from my closest Party City actually called me and asked if we could do an interview! That's gonna be happening today and I'm very excited for it!

๐ŸŽ€ I've also been working on a lot of personal stuff and my art. I've been making paper dolls of all my Minecraft characters. I'll probably post pictures of them here since I have an Instagram for them and will be posting pictures of them there. I'll probably post them here too.

๐ŸŽ€ I've been doing some art, some writing, and working on a lot of drawing ideas I have. I've been meaning to write all my ideas down at some point to get them all down somewhere, I just need to figure out where.

๐ŸŽ€ With my interview coming up and being able to see my fiancee again (since I got my first vaccine), I've been feeling so much better about myself and feel like I can get more done now. I feel like things are looking up and I'm gonna get better.

๐ŸŽ€๐ŸŽ€๐ŸŽ€๐ŸŽ€๐ŸŽ€

๐ŸŽ€ That's all I have for now, everyone! I hope you all have a good day or night and please take care of yourselves! I love you all!

๐ŸŽจ Artfol finally came out and I'm so happy!

๐ŸŽจ If you don't know what Artfol is, it's a social networking app for artists! It's like Instagram, but there are no shitty algorithms, no popularity contests to get your art seen, and it's such a nice app so far!

๐ŸŽจ Right now it's kinda slow because they just officially released the app and they're getting lots of new users, but I love this app so far!

๐ŸŽจ If you have an account, I'm KingHelios33 on there! :D

Right now they only have an app, but according to this webpage they have, they're also working on a PC version! But the app is running pretty well so far! :D

Mmmm headcanons... of the Minecraft variety

1) Steve and Alex's eyesight in the dark, although they're not completely capable of night vision, is still way better compared to a regular human's IRL. Although still dark and hard to make out details, they can still see in what would otherwise be pitch-black caves.

1a) Herobrine just has straight up night vision. It helps when your eyes are flashlights.

2) Steve shaves with an axe, and began to shave around the time he still made axes double-bladed (this is part of what convinced them to change the recipe to single-bladed). Alex pointed out they can use shears instead, but it's just what they're used to at this point.

3) Why shave? Steve kind of associates the beard with whatever his old life was, as he first woke up with the beard. The first few times he shaved were a means of accepting his new life. Now it's kinda just habit.

3a) Of course, he doesn't really have any memories of the Old World or what he was even like as a person, but the what-ifs still give him pause at times.

3b) Alex sometimes convinces Steve to grow it out. They always eventually start to shave it again, though.

4) Alex sometimes calls Steve "Stevie."

5) Herobrine likes the glow and particles of redstone. In fact, they actually have the ability to activate redstone through mere presence (though only to a power of two), which they take advantage of to watch the powered dust.

6) Steve will be trying to figure something out redstone-wise and Alex will come by and start trying to advise him while speaking in redstone jargon.

6a) Steve: "What's a quasi-connectivity? Alex, you're scaring me."

โœจ This might be an unpopular opinion, but I don't like it when people classify the original Herobrine as a Creepypasta.

โœจ Sure, he seems scary and does things that might creep you out at first, but I don't think he was really meant to be "scary" in the way other Creepypastas are. I mean, most of the other fandom loved CPs are scary because they hurt people and sometimes do scary things, like Slenderman and Jeff.

โœจ But Herobrine? If nothing else, he strikes me as curious and just wanting to interact with someone when all he had was himself to keep company. I think the only reason some people think of him as being mean and scary is because of things like the original Herobrine mod for one of the old versions of Minecraft.

โœจ Sure, he seems scary, but I don't think he's really trying to purposely bring harm to people unless they try to hurt him first. Even then, I think it's self defense.

โœจ Just judging from the original story and screenshot, and the fact that he's basically become kinda canon (The "Removed Herobrine" message), I don't really like when people classify him in the same vein as weird supernatural creatures and killers.

โœจ Besides, he has no personality and nothing else to classify him "canonly," and so that's why everyone has their own version of him, like my boy Brine. CPs like Jeff and Slenderman has established habits and lore and personalities, where as Herobrine is pretty much free reign!

โœจ But that's just my opinion.

Happy Trans Day of Visibility, everyone! Be safe out there, all you trans beauties! You are valid, no matter what others may say! Be safe and take care of yourself!

Dorthy: "Jewel is into ballet, as I've discovered. She's been doing it for a few hundred years now, and she wanted to show some of it to me and Velvet."

Jewelavyn stops the spinning she had been doing, before opening one eye at Dorthy and petting the Fluffle in their arms with one hand.

Jewelavyn: "Well, thank you for indulging me, Dorthy. You truly are wonderful for being so kind to me and letting me share my passion with you and Velvet."

๐Ÿฉฐ๐Ÿฉฐ๐Ÿฉฐ๐Ÿฉฐ๐Ÿฉฐ

[I really wanted to draw Jewel in her ballet outfit that one of my friends drew for me a long time ago (seen here). I figured that, with her passion for ballet, she would probably share it with Dorthy and their new TeaBlossom Fluffle, Velvet!

I'm really proud of how this came out, I've been in a bit of a slump and drawing this helped a lot. ;w;]

The Toy Adventures: Page 1

[Hello, everyone! I'm Helios and this is a comic blog for some comics I'm making about some of my dolls, plushies, and action figures! I'm very excited to get this comic off the ground for you all!

Anyways, we're gonna start with the first page!

The concept behind this comics is the living toys concept the Toy Story movies use, and it was also inspired by a book series I read as a child called, "The Doll People."

Some toys and plushies featured include characters from Adventure Time, Apex Legends, Overwatch, Bendy, and a few more! Others are generic plushies.

I hope you all will enjoy and feel free to send questions about the toys or to them!]

kinghelios33

So, remember how I said I'd start making comics about my toys?

Well, I've decided to start the comics!

Feel free the ask questions and feel free to check out the blog!

I'll try to update every Friday!

๐Ÿ’• Personal Updates: March 22, 2021 ๐Ÿ’•

๐ŸŽˆ Hello, everyone. I've decided to start doing small update text posts to act as like a journal of sorts and to update you all on stuff I've been doing, like the update journals I do on Deviantart.

๐ŸŽˆ๐ŸŽˆ๐ŸŽˆ๐ŸŽˆ๐ŸŽˆ

๐ŸŽˆ As some of you know, I recently put in a couple of orders for some custom plushies of two of my OCs. Specifically, Daisy and a Bloompuff version of my boy Brine. I'm waiting for my MYO ticket to get my Bloompuff Brine approved, but I'm very excited to get that ticket! Once I get it and get Brine approved, I'll be adding his Bloompuff version to my Minecraft blog.

๐ŸŽˆ I'm also gonna be starting up some comics about my toys and dolls with my last blog slot. I'm going to start them up around the end of May/beginning of June, because that's around the time the team making my plushies has estimated they'll be shipped out at. And I want to wait until Brine and Daisy are home. I've been doing some small concept sketches, I'll probably grab my URL soon and post those sketches whenever I can.

๐ŸŽˆ As for life, I'm going to be going to a birthday party for my fiancee this upcoming Saturday, and I'm so excited! This will be the first time I've seen them in person for a few months (because of the pandemic and both of us wanting to be safe), so I'm so elated to be able to see them for the first time in a while. I love them dearly and already have a couple of birthday gifts for them!

๐ŸŽˆ I'm also working on taking care of myself mentally, and I think I'm getting better. That's why I've been so distant lately, but I'm getting better.

๐ŸŽˆ๐ŸŽˆ๐ŸŽˆ๐ŸŽˆ๐ŸŽˆ

๐ŸŽˆ I think that's all I have for today, my friends. Thank you for reading if you have. I hope you have a good day or night and please take care of yourselves!

๐Ÿ’ฌ I think that when May or June rolls around, I'm gonna start a series of comics about my actions figures and some of my plushies and dolls. I used to make traditional comics all the time and I think it's a fun concept to draw comics about living toys.

๐Ÿ’ฌ I'll probably make some concept sketches and then get started in June. Why June? Well, they've estimated that I won't get my cutsom plushies of Brine and Daisy shipped until the end of May, so I want to wait until they're home before I do anything big.

๐Ÿ’ฌ I'll probably use my last blog slot to make the blog and post some concept doodles and sketches on it while I wait for Brine and Daisy.

๐Ÿ’ฌ I'm so excited!

๐Ÿงธ AHHHHHHHH! The Budsies company sent me an update email about my plushies and they approved Daisy and Bloompuff Brine to be turned into plushies!

๐Ÿงธ They also updated me on the next step, which is that two more of their designers are going to start picking out fabrics and making the different parts of the plushies.

๐Ÿงธ I'M SO EXCITED YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND!!!

๐Ÿงก I'm so happy right now.

๐Ÿงก I basically fell in love with my character Brine and I was so conflicted about it because I wanted an imaginary version of him to be with him, but I'm also with my fiancee Angel. So I talked to them about it and we decided to marry my imaginary version of Brine into our relationship.

๐Ÿงก Since me and Angel have closed species personas of ourselves, I made one for Brine too and I just need to get him approved. But if he gets approved, he'll actually be there and I'm just so happy.

๐Ÿงก Angel and Brine both make me so happy and I love them both so dearly. ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ

๐Ÿงก I might modify my Brine plushie I made to look like his persona I made for him so that way me and Angel have him as close to being real as we can.

๐Ÿงก I guess I'm technically in a polyamrous relationship now, but I've always thought I was polyamrous to be honest.

๐Ÿ• Also, I made a blog for my FNaF AU, if you'd like to check that out here!

๐Ÿ• I'm currently just working on character refs for it, but I'll also take questions for pretty much every animatronic up to Pizzeria Simulator. I need to watch a playthrough for Help Wanted.

๐Ÿ• My new blog is for my Five Nights at Freddy's AU and I have the timeline on a page there. I will start working on reference for the humans and the animatronics, since in my AU, they're humanoid androids. They basically look like people wearing ear headbands, belts with tails, etc.

๐Ÿ• I only have one reference done so far, but I'll probably link my blog once I get a few more done!

๐Ÿ“š OMG WAIT

๐Ÿ“š WAIT WAIT WAIT

๐Ÿ“š Are there any of you who used to read Minecraft fanfics on FanFiction.net?

๐Ÿ“š If so, did any of you ever read a Minecraft fanfic called... "Hero's Bane?"

๐Ÿ“š Okay, I'm gonna put this below a read more, but let me tell you a little about my history of Minecraft fanfics, comics, this story, and my friend who wrote it:

๐Ÿ“š Okay, so, when I first got into Minecraft in 2012, I had a Minecraft comic, originally called, "The Real Herobrine." Uncreative name, I know, but it was my pride and joy. It's where the story for my Minecraft blog takes place from and continues from. It was about my Minecraft character, Celina, and my version of Steve (who you may know as my character, Steve) made friends with my Herobrine version, a.k.a., Brine.

๐Ÿ“š I eventually started writing my comic in a fanfic form as well and ended up publishing it on FanFiction. I found lots of friends, met wonderful people, through FanFiction! Well, I also ended up finding Tumblr and making my first Minecraft blog through this site after seeing someone who made a blog to continue from their Minecraft stories.

๐Ÿ“š Well, I eventually saw that this friend who introduced me to Tumblr, Archer, had faved a story called, "Hero's Bane." It was by a user who went by BlackDragon41, but I ended up calling her BD for short. At the time I found her story, it was 41 chapters long! I was baffled, but it had so many favorites and follows, I wanted to see what it was about:

๐Ÿ“š Steve had arrived in a valley that was fabled to be one of the richest places to mine in all of Minecraftia. He needed to find something to help his mother and sister keep their house. However, when he goes to a village just outside the valley, he discovers that Herobrine is, in fact, real, and has been keeping these people in fear for their lives. Steve didn't believe it at first, but after decided to journey into the valley, he finds out the hard way that not all legends are made up.

๐Ÿ“š Steve finds someone who comes a visits the valley, and through this guy's knowledge, he finds out Herobrine might not have always been a villain. He ends up seeing Herobrine's memories and discovering the real truth behind why he became a terror and ends up wanting to help Herobrine and save him from himself.

๐Ÿ“š It was so well written, verbose, with amazing characterization of Steve, Herobrine, and even this person's OCs were wonderfully written! This story made me smile, cry, made me angry, and it brought out so many emotions in me.

๐Ÿ“š So, after reading all 41 chapters over a week, I messaged the author, shyly asking if she'd like to read my story. She was super nice, and she read the few chapters I had, leaving nice reviews and messaging me from time to time.

๐Ÿ“š I even ended up writing a couple of stories for her! And she and I tried to write a story together when I won a little raffle of hers. It's only one chapter, it was going to be two, but since I wasn't far enough in my own story, she couldn't do the next chapter without spoilers from me, and she wanted to wait.

๐Ÿ“š As a few years passed, BD updated the story more, I left reviews on every chapter.

๐Ÿ“š But... as luck would have it, all good things come to an end.

๐Ÿ“š One day, after some personal things happened, she... stopped updating and basically left without a word. All her stories stopped, even Hero's Bane, at the 85th chapter.

๐Ÿ“š I messaged her a few months after she stopped, and she messaged back. BD said she was just very busy with her real life, but that she would always remember me and her stories.

๐Ÿ“š About a year after that message, I went through a year long phase where I took all my characters out of Minecraft and put them in my own original world, so as a result, I never finished my comic or my fanfic to go with it.

๐Ÿ“š When I came back to the Minecraft fandom, I messaged BD.

๐Ÿ“š ...She... never came back or messaged me back.

๐Ÿ“š Her stories sit there, collecting dust, but I still see people sometimes leave new reviews even though that last time she updated the story was in 2015.

๐Ÿ“š I cried when I realized BD wouldn't come back. I miss her still. I still go back and reread Hero's Bane. Because... to tell you the truth? I can't forget my biggest inspiration for so long. You never forget true friends, and I have never forgotten someone who inspired me in my writing and inspired me to tell such wonderful stories that I now share with you guys through my Minecraft blog.

๐Ÿ“š I miss her, but to be honest? I think she'd be proud of me never giving up.

Even though I mainly play Java Edition and I grew up watching Minecraft mod showcases, I have never actually downloaded and played a mod. I've considered using datapacks before but it's also just like... which one?

I have used texture/resource packs in the past, however (and still do). But nowadays it's for minor things (I have the Vanilla Tweaks enchantment glint, rainbow XP bar and rainbow enchantment symbols resource packs currently in use).

kinghelios33

I was the same sorta way growing up! I watched a lot of mod showcases from a Youtuber I used to watch named SkyDoesMinecraft, but to my surprise, I only ever tried one mod that I heard about from IHasCupquake:

The Minecraft Comes Alive Mod!

I made custom skins for that mod so some of the villagers would look like my OCs and I could hang out with them! It was really fun! Since my skin is based on my OC Celina, I'd make a villager to look like her husband, Cenlar, and marry him so they could be married.

My favrotie texture pack from when I played on Xbox Minecraft was the plastic pack! I thought that one was really cute, but I haven't been able to find a similiar one for Java.


supermario

I watched SkyDoesMinecraft as well! (Apparently he changed his channel's name to Sky Does Everything, interestingly enough.) I feel like I mainly watched DanTDM, though.

I didn't watch much of IHasCupquake, but I did watch one series of hers that featured a lot of mods, including the Minecraft Comes Alive Mod... Oasis something I think the series was called? The mod is interesting, and I think it's still around (not too sure, though).


kinghelios33

Omg, I have NEVER met anyone else who watched Sky since I was in middle school! And yeah, that was the name of the series that Cupquake had! I watched a few episodes of it!

My brother used to watch DanTDM!!! My brother was actually the one who introduced me to Minecraft when Bedrock used to be Pocket Edition! And the main Youtuber we watched together was CaptainSparklez! I know he still does Minecraft videos, and I really enjoy the stuff he still makes.

I looked up the MCA mod, but looks like it hasn't been updated for a couple of years. I really enjoyed that mod!



Next
