Shitty day today so I got out of the house for a smoke. As I took a walk outside in the seemingly mid-summer heat in my favorite yet heavy as fuck hoodie, I started to think about Silver.
Like with all my other characters who at times would be my #1 favorites and other times I would pick others over them, Silver was slowly taking up the #1 spot. I began coming up with stories throughout the entire walk (all of which I feel like I cannot form into a story. I’m that much of a shitty writer. Heck, I don’t consider myself a writer!) and as I did, I used Silver as my own persona. With the help of my amazing hoodie, I snuck off into the night as a young, silver-haired dilinquent looking for trouble.
Silver was not meant to be a persona of myself rather, he was inspired by an actor and then I slowly built on his personality. I made him around 10 years younger than the actor, gave him a piercing, a phrase carved into his arm, a pet rat, a shitty personality, and odd hobbies. Silver hung out with kids older than him, a bunch of shabby layabouts who thought nothing of him. He had a huge crush on the one called Cat.
This scenario popped in my head as I walked: The crush on Cat, buying her a kitty keychain, about to give it to her when he secretly finds her making out with Alex, another girl from the group. Him being crushed by this also came to mind. Then was the story of Chompy the Chihuahua, Silver’s pet rat. He was named after a bad joke. Chompy was large and ate anything you can imagine and he would also fetch small trinkets for Silver.
Another thing that came to mind was the Centifer language and Silver’s true Centifer name. His English name is Roy but his Centifer name is Aryen. His nickname is Silver in both languages. I was thinking of changing all character’s names to their Centifer names in my stories.
That’s pretty much it for now. The battery on my phone is dying and I have nothing more to say. Welp, see ya.
