Rate My Fantroll
My troll is going to be really loud and obnoxious, since his sign is the Egyptian hieroglyphic for voice. He's going to have a rooster lusus since a rooster is a really loud and abnoxious animal. He claims that he's really good at "projecting" and such. What do you think would be a good quirk for him? Thanks for your time.

Hmm, that’s a pretty solid idea so far!

I was unable to find a non-phonetic hieroglyphic for voice unfortunately, so I can’t come up with any quirks based on the symbol itself. Loudness obviously brings to mind CAPS LOCK, but that’s hardly a quirk by itself. Perhaps since since roosters are associated with cawing at the sun, and sun gods in general, you could prefix each line with a text based version of the sun? Something like this <O>? You could even make a little rooster head if you wanted (o)> or (O)>. Capping no letter but O and stretching them out for emphasis could also be a possibility, making his text seem rather OOOver dramatic and lOud. Don’t go too crazy with the stretched O’s though, save them for when he’s really annoyed or boastful or what have you.

More ideas could be replacing c with a < to represent an open beak, gaping mouth, or megaphone, and making bird puns such as “ruffled feathers” and “pecking order”.

Best of luck with it!

I thought I'd submitted a fantroll yesterday for review. Should I submit it again? I guess my internet's acting weird again =_=

Would a lusus that was something like this h t t p : / / i m g u r . c o m /Toyj1 except covered in feathers after the initial collar, and not as awfully done (I'm no artist) be a little too whacky and awful? My idea was to cross a hummingbird with a narwhal. Sorry the linked is chopped up. u o u

Sure why not?

Some lusus have rather absurd designs so go on! C:

in general, is it okay if a fantroll has a streak in their hair? (as long as its not some goofy color like pink, neon green etc.)

One streak is okay but this is mostly to show off their blood color. Theory: Eridan had his streak because he wants to show off to the people that he is of a high caste. This is probably an ego or a pride thing.

"Anonymous asked ratemyfantroll a question:

will you still be analyzing/rating fan trolls during the week, or will you only be posting on the Fridays now?”

So my e-mail informs me that this question was asked, yet I can’t find it in the message box? Er, at any rate…

We will still be rating and reviewing submissions during the week, don’t you worry! The Fantroll Friday spotlight is on top of that, and won’t be interfering, so we will be reviewing submissions as soon as we get them!

Is it alright if we submit a fantroll that has already been reviewed by other another blog? owo

Sure thing!

Can trolls have tattoos and pierceings?

Well, Meenah has piercings, though I don’t think we’ve seen anyone with a tattoo. I’d say yes, but piercings, at least, seem more like a highblood thing. -M
