Anonymous asked: What was, or is, your inspiration for Blackout?

Oh, uh, that’s a tough one… Kinda, haha.

Well, to be honest, a whole lot of things inspire me to work on this? The most obvious is, of course, the Digimon franchise itself, the anime seasons, even the games, the manga, the expanded universe, etc. 

Aside from that, I guess I’m inspired by the same things that inspire other people to do stuff?

Music, music is very important to me, also long walks and nature in general? Going out for a walk in the evening is my favorite thing to do, it lets me think and observe people and life around me. 

And of course then there are my favorite books, and inspiration for Blackout comes from all sorts of places - from things like the Narnia and Harry Potter series to literature like Divine Comedy, Faust, Paradise Lost, Master and Margarita, etc. Hell, even mythology and religion from all over the word, or some science and history stuff.

Favorite movies and cartoons and anime as well, I’d say a fair amount of things in Blackout was inspired by Miyazaki’s works and anime like Children Who Chase Lost Voices, Natsume’s Book of Friends, Fullmetal Alchemist and Avatar: The Last Airbender, then Disney’s, Pixar’s and Dreamwork’s movies… And a lot of others, really. 

When it comes to characters, it’s the same I guess? For example Caedemon’s character is influenced a bit by Wolverine, Bigby from The Wolf Among Us and Joel from The Last of Us, and Ayame’s character reminds me a bit of Elisa Maza from Gargoyles.

Talking to the co-creators and friends kinda helps a lot as well? And then there’s just a desire to create something the we love together and share it with people I guess? 

I am in the office now and it feels like it’s the seventh circle of Hell

I get emotional over how many cool and amazing Digimon there are and how many of them I’d like to show in Blackout because seriously.

your fic is actually happening, what do

Lmao yeah, if fog appeared out of nowhere as well I think I could be concerned haha. But it felt kinda weird sitting in total darkness with no lights anywhere and hearing police sirens pass buy, like… “Did the substation explode, what the hell”

Sigh

Yeah, why wouldn’t we have a FUCKING BLACKOUT in half of the district. Kinda weird seeing how the weather’s okay and I have no idea what the hell happened but judging by the sounds from the highway it caused a road accident or two.

This summer really lacks thunderstorms…

The last one was very warm, but we also had thunderstorms several times a day, and now it’s either blistering heat for three weeks without any rain, or it’s raining for two weeks non-stop.  I prefer thunderstorms tho. There’s nothing like seeing one approaching and hearing the distant thunder.
