Q: Will you guys ever publish Hell and Elysium into a novel?
A: We would love to do that, but editing the story would be a nightmare due to the Roleplay post format and the constant shifting of point of views. If we had an editor maybe it'd be possible, but we'd prefer to do it ourselves if we had to.
Q: How do you guys create all those amazing characters?
A: We make the characters in Second Life, which is a virtual reality MMO where pretty much anything is possible. We buy all the things we need like hair, skin, eyes, clothing, accessories, etc. and we make our own shapes. It's a lot of mixing and matching of different things to create whatever we dream up in our heads. Sometimes we'll even sketch out character ideas first then try and create it in Second Life. Once the avatars are made it's a perfect reference for art and even helps us describe our characters better in the story. Second Life also lets us be able to take amazing snapshots that we can insert into the chapters since there are many gorgeous places in the game that can be settings seen in the stories. One example is the Kingdom of Sand RP sim which is the inspiration for Gehenna.
Q: How long will the story be and when will it be finished?
A: We have no set length or time since this is a roleplay and we both enjoy allowing it to unfold as it will. It's likely going be quite long and I imagine it will be years before it's ever finished simply because the characters have babies, so there's many generations to play and lots that can happen. All I can say is that it will come to a conclusion eventually, but for now we have so much plot to get through it won't be anytime soon.
Question from spicegyal7: How did you and Jen come up with the idea for hell and elysium? How did it all start?
A: Hi there spicygal7! Thanks for your question, I'm super happy to answer it :3 Hell basically started when Jenastar proposed we do a yaoi RP revolving around various types of demons, especially naga and incubi. The basic premise was having a sprawling past-fantasy setting with masters and slaves, which of course would lead to all kinds of kinky smut (we love it xP). There was no plot beyond having two hot nagas buy some sexy slaves to hump silly and make babies with. If you break the stories down, that's mostly what they are, 'cause we get our jollies from making hot characters hump and make babies lol The plots started to evolve as we went, and Jenastar gets credit for 90% of it since I am not the greatest at inventing storylines. I mostly develop individual scenes or come up with ideas for what should happen to the characters within the plotline she creates. As for Elysium, the angels were always there as a minor sub-plot, but Elysium didn't exist until I expressed my interest in actually developing the angels as characters and creating a world for them as well. I take credit for Elysium's existence, though Jenastar added a lot of elements to it inspired by similar stories she had read. Anywho, I hope that answers your questions o<o
