Aetherbells |Open Species|| What Are Aetherbells?|
Created from the souls of those who have died suddenly, Aetherbells were crafted by the two faced Goddess of Harmony, Astraea.
To save the souls destined to become voids -the emptiness between existence- Astraea gave them a second chance to live happy lives. She moulded the souls into Aetherbells and tasked them with retrieving essence from living beings. As long as they consumed essence regularly they would be spared from the painful transition into voids. Depending on the way they collect this essence they are classified into two categories.
| Yumebells VS Akumabells|
Yumebells (Healers) gather essence by saving people from sudden deaths -most often like the ones they suffered.

[Tutorial] How to create/improve your speciesHow to create or improve your species – An Unconventional Tutorial
Disclaimer: If you are a seasoned species owner, some sections of this tutorial may be ‘blatantly obvious’ to you. However, to make sure that new species owners understand these principles they have been included in this tutorial.
I'm not going to outline 'How to pick a unique species name' or 'How to modify a real animal into a species', or other topics that most popular species creation tutorials cover. Those very tutorials were the ones I read when I first started creating species. However with some insight and a lot more experience, I realised they no longer explained the best way to create, or define a closed species. I could even argue that their existence helped to create some of the issues that closed species communities face now, such as an extreme focus on traits and selling value as opposed to lore and species interactivity.
In today's species community and ma
How to: Closed SpeciesThere are a lot of people who don't understand or even hate the idea of closed species. This journal should bring you closer to my view of closed species and why certain things are handled the way they are.
Maybe you just had the wrong image of "closed" species?
Update May, 2017: I'm honestly super amazed by how many people viewed this already and how many of you found this helpful, so I spent some time on redoing the entire layout to make it easier to read! ;w;
These are just my personal experiences and opinions, they don't apply to everyone and are surely not flawless. I really took my time to think this through. English is my 3rd language so excuse me for any grammar, spelling or wording mistakes.
Tips on: How to make an original species?I got asked by a few people but I wrote out this response to jasper-chan's ask on my tumblr. since it's all written out I feel like it'd be at least somewhat appreciated to those who are curious of what I keep in mind while making an original species
WARNING it's a little messy but if you are confused then feel free to ask me questions I'll do my best to answer properly
In general I’d suggest to think "what physical characteristics should be involved with my species? and how can i make it unique?"
for a species to be a species (especially closed species) there should be at least some distinctive physical trait that they're born with.
imo it’s not a very good species if they can take off what would make them a species. for example, a group of kemonomimis that likes to wear a specific fashion is more of a culture than a species. I wouldn’t add their fashion into their main descrip
