Storytelling by Kittengoo Storytelling by Kittengoo

A comic I made to remind myself why I do what I do, hopefully it will help you too!

See if you can spot the fictional characters used and name them ;3

only (probably) new thing to you about this work I can say, I've got a shock at the second panel.

Did you REALLY faced something like this or straightly this in your life? I've never faced or even heard about such situation....
or even about my take on Pokemon when I tell to someone in reality(in Poland Pokemon fans are the hell rare and almost everyone knows only a childish stereotype
of them)- then I see on people faces that they MIGHT feel in such way, but they never said it for real.

Anyway, like many people said it well and better than I would be able to, you made great work here :clap: and I agree with you! :D

I've always hated being told, "You know it's not real, right?" It seems wrong to say "Yes, of course I know the difference between reality and fiction," although I do, because it's... they ARE real. This is brilliant and lovely.

Amen to this! It's always reassuring to see others who totally get the meaning of of a good story...especially for someone like me who aspires to write her own stories. It's easy to forget what the purpose is when you see so many good books go unheard and some...subpar ones...become so famous and talked about. But that's really not the point, huh? It isn't about the fame or money or how many fanclubs you have...some of the best books and movies and TV shows I've experienced in my life have NEVER been heard of, or made into movies (in a book/TV show's case) or ever had merchandise made for it, but that doesn't make them inferior.

Actually...THIS right here is the whole reason I started writing in the first place. I remember getting lost in the story, feeling a "rush" for characters and events, and I really wanted to recreate that for others. So thanks, Mae, for reminding me of my purpose! :3

I see a sparkling vampire under the bad stories panel, haha.

Stories are important because they help us make sense of life, which can be filled with confusion. I just finished The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, a powerful recount of a cancer patient whose cells formed the backbone of medical research worldwide over the past century, yet whose family or descendants never went to college (a trend which is happily changing). A multi-layered investigation from the ivory towers of John Hopkins to the gritty street life of the Lackses, on how respect in research - or the lack of it - can impact families and societies,  I got the sense of the deep despair the family faced, yet their solemn optimism for the vast scientific contributions of their ancestor's cells, and am very glad for the years put into weaving the story together from all the scattered emotions, memories and records.

If I head down the path of research, I'll hang this story ahead of me as guidance: rigginsroom.weebly.com/uploads…

This is absolutely true. Fiction has influenced many lives and we wouldn't have the world of today without it. By the way, do you like classic literature books? If so, what literature book is you favorite?

I adore the classics! :) My favorites are ; Animal Farm (George Orwell), Lord of The Flies (William Golding), and I like Shakespeare's works too (especially Macbeth).

Cool! Lord of the Flies is definitely a fave of mine. I'm gonna start reading Shakespeare soon, because I found a copy of "The Complete Works of William Shakespeare" on my Dad's shelf. I also really like Jane Eyre (Charlotte Bronte) and The Time Machine (H.G. Wells)

There was a time when I was lost and afraid. I would stay inside and read during recess to avoid the torment. I would read and wish that one day my favorite heroes would come and save me.

Then I read a book. A very special book.

It was the story of a girl who never felt she belonged. So much so, she even considered death. But someone told her to hang on. So she lived. She became a librarian. Then she became a sister. Then an aunt. A Remembrancer. An Abhorsen. And finally, a hero. And all because she did not give up. Because she found people who believed in her. Because she found a family.

That girl's name is Lirael. She inspired me to become a hero myself. And I would have been lost without her.

As well as the Joker, Elsa from Frozen (I STILL have to see that! We have the DVD and everything...), AND the infamous flying car from Harry Potter.

Stories are very powerful things. They make us think, they make us feel and they inspire us, and even if they are just fiction they do so much for us in reality that we sometimes don't think about. I doubt there is anyone in this world that have not heard or read a story that has done this for them in some way or another. This is also why I love stories and try to make up some by myself even if it's not always easy. :)

I agree, which is why it's so important to give children quality entertainment. With adult stuff it's more forgivable to show crap since adults should know from right and wrong, but children are sponges.

I'd put a little more credit to their intelligence, but that'd be hypocritical of me since I'm living proof that kids can be super impressionable.

There needs to be some sort of quality assurance in anything targeted towards kids...
