In Agone

If you account for the time lapse, two years ago today in this moment I was sitting in the Eternal City, having cheesecake and foam-laden coffee in Piazza Navona.  Two years.  It doesn’t feel to be more than a season or so.  I’m still so in love with Rome, I’m almost a goddamned adult, it’s been two years, I don’t know what’s happened.  It made me want to be on the moon, seeing it like that in the middle of everything.  One day I’ll be back.

"I don’t know what’s going on, and I’m probably not smart enough to understand if somebody was to explain it to me. All I know is we’re being tested somehow, by somebody or some thing a whole lot smarter than us, and all I can do is be friendly and keep calm and try and have a nice time till it’s over."
Kurt Vonnegut, The Sirens of Titan

About 150 pages in, I don’t know what any of these people are doing and I love it.

characterdesigninspiration:

Quite a few people requested some form of trait/personality generator, and here’s the result!  I wanted to keep it vague enough that the options could work for any universe, be it modern, fantasy, scifi, or anything else, so these are really just the basics. Remember that a character is much more than a list of traits, and this should only be used as a starting point– I tried to include a variety of things, but further development is definitely a must.

Could pair well with the gender and sexuality generator.

To Play: Click and drag each gif, or if that isn’t working/you’re on mobile, just take a screenshot of the whole thing (multiple screenshots may be required if you want more than one trait from each category).
