I can relate alot to that there lol. Gale was based off of me; personality and look (just a lil bit taller, im short D And I've used him before all this in a lil writing of my own along with alot more characters. And Kiba has his own little world lol.
Speaking of The Gates, I was thinking about bringing that back...but with a more present setting to it. It was gonna involve the conclusion to what happened so many years ago along with people like Brooke's descendants. It's still fuzzy but I've been shooting ideas at Vicious.
