I was thinking some major changes might be able to make my creative juices flowing again. So I have paused my Larika story for now. I hope I will write it someday.
I have another story being created from scratches. And I'm using it for my BJD universe.
So I want to share, what I have so far.
It's a fantasy story inspired by the Viking age. So inspired by our world around year 800-1000 A.D.
I'm not aiming for historical accuracy since it's a fantasy, but I really like the Viking age, so I thought I would take some inspiration from it.
As usual, I will try and see if I can write a multiple viewpoint story.
The story isn't very developed yet. So I don't feel confident sharing the ideas, as they might very well change.
So far I have some vague concepts for my dolls, but I know a bit about my IH Jessica.
She intends to prove to the people of her country and herself that she isn't a coward, so she joins a journey across the ocean to a different continent that is known to be hostile towards her people, in order to seek an alliance against yet another country they have been fighting for decades.
Also, I'm changing my name back to Lise.
It's rather complicated, but I know people don't see me as anything other than a girl, and by enforcing the name "Nikki" I challenge people (in real life mostly) and they take this as an invitation to completely disregard my gender and identity. I don't want to be optimistic and live in hope that people will suddenly understand, so that's it. I will endure it, as I always have, but this time I won't be living in a fake hope of understanding.
