3/26 Ordered a box of sugar-free Red Vines and got SUGARFUL Red Vines. Can’t remember when I’ve been so disappointed and annoyed.
3/19 Except for careening toward financial ruin and worrying about catching the plague, isolation is actually pretty fun.
3/4 Various circumstances
including binge-watching a season and a half of Sofia the First have limited my art intake these past two weeks, so I’m putting off my AEL until next week. I kinda want it offset anyway.
2/25 Actual chapter posted!
2/23 Have some Heretic’s Reward interludes. Actual chapter pending.
2/19 Geez, this AEL keeps going and going. I guess I’ll finish it tomorrow?
2/4 I may have watched 12 hours of Sailor Moon last weekend instead of doing anything productive, but not this weekend! ASZz part at linear completion!
1/21 Working on some TWIP’s today in between stories.
1/11 I think tie prices are the clothing industry’s way of saying, “We don’t make enough money off men.”
1/6 Ruptured ovarian cyst(s) keeping me in bed for days on end is driving me toward financial disaster, but at least I have time for
Skyrim binging The Clone Wars writing!
1/2 So lots of random crap around this place suddenly isn’t working. Sorry about that!
1/1 Happy new year!
12/29 Faffing about with site stuff. Sorry if anything’s illegible.
12/25 Happy Christmas to anyone into that!
12/20 Should I be starting another long story? Absolutely not. Am I? I’ll let you guess.
12/19 Geez, how do you explain “I’m out of spoons” to 3- and 5-year-olds?
12/18 Editing a story in the morning instead of watching an episode is very effective! I’ll never catch up on the Arrowverse that way, though XD
12/16 After-Dinner Brandy is almost done! Get ready for Trowa’s long story in way more detail!
12/15 It’s just occurred to me that Cap’n Crunch’s hair is white and he’s never been promoted beyond cap’n. Incompetence? Prejudice? What’s been holding him back so long?
12/14 New writing is easy now; editing I still don’t have a lot of time for XD
12/11 I’ve reached linear completion on After-Dinner Brandy!
12/10 New method for consistently writing even while working a lot.
12/08 SoOoOo busy. Gotta figure something out.
12/07 NQF has gone very poorly on both ends this year. *sigh*
Well, folks, I yet live. But everything has changed. Of course my darling Waybee died, and that was tragic. Then I had a fibromyalgia flare-up so bad it made me realize I had to leave the veterinary field. Yesterday was my last day at the clinic. My future is...
Ze likes fashion, football, and social justice. He likes Star Wars, friends, and tabletop roleplaying. Can this meeting between totally dissimilar strangers go anything but badly?
Two Weeks In Photos: 3/5 Suki
Two Weeks In Photos: NEW KITTIN!! A few other things, but mostly Suki
Two Weeks In Photos: Birthday presents, nerdery, Little Animals, Santa Fe
Though the circus has settled in for its winter break, Trowa Barton (acrobat, animal-handler, and werebeast beta) still has his hands full — with a newly acquired lion he’s sure is more than it appears, the return of former romantic partner and current alpha-friend-with-benefits Heero, and tiny niece Relena growing up much too fast.
On the night of November 11, 2004, I heard from outside my apartment a sad meowing. Looking out the window revealed a small cat running from one apartment door to the next to the next, crying for someone to let her in out of the freezing cold. Immediately I ran to...
Rurouni Kenshin fanfiction by kuroiyousei: Orchard-hand Sano is pulled from his small-town life to assist royal knight Hajime in restoring the usurped throne to Kenshin, the rightful king, and the two of them may find a connection beyond only this quest.
Two Weeks In Photos: Little Animals and some other random stuff, including Waybee’s last appearance
15 days 'til I turn 39! 08/08: Little Animals: 08/11: So often the lighting in my house in terrible for taking pictures. I suppose I should experiment with the settings on my phone camera, and maybe use a flash sometimes? But it's really annoying. 08/12: You know...
20 days 'til I turn 39! Audiobook and pain -- As I mentioned somewhere, working with my narrator on the files of the first TLY audiobook ate tons of my time. I had the Kindle book and the audio files open side by side, and was following every word to check for...
29 days 'til I turn 39! 07/22: I'm sure many people have seen this, but I felt it needed to be documented: When those folks came up with those names for Gundam Wing, did they know what lasting entertainment they would provide the fans? Two cats in harmony on the bed:...
39 days 'til I turn 39!! I promise I really am working on stuff. Two big projects (exchange fic and helping get this first TLY audiobook finished), which both more or less have deadlines, have been siphoning all my time lately... but I have gotten bits and pieces of...
07/07: I was sitting in bed with some cuddlebugs, and Hiko was doing this: https://kuroiyousei.net/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/20190707-Hiko-sneepin-next-to-Piper-and-twitching.mp4 What do you suppose he was dreaming about? Eventually I rose and wore my new plaid...
PL: Nine Decades, site/AO3 stuff (including HCBT and weeping), Castlevania fic at last!, exchange fic
Nine Decades -- I finally got back around to this! The plan was to have the final story to linear completion before moving on in my schedule, but, having recently posted Aku Soku Zan(za) on AO3, I wanted to move on to that in order to post something and prove...
AEL: The Valley of the Moon, Castlevania fanfiction, Animal Farm, Udolpho v.3, The Ambassador’s Mission, and, um, yes, Castlevania again
The Valley of the Moon by Jack London -- You may or may not be able to tell I'm working my way through a Jack London collection. Obviously it started with White Fang and The Call of the Wild, and here's the third novel. And it's been... kinda weird to go from...
05/28: Here's another work selfie, I guess? Not sure why I took this one: 05/29: My co-worker (whose name is also Robin) has been fostering some kittins, and they are the cutest things. Here are some pictures of thems: OK, so, after 9 months or so of bringing a salad...
DC Animated Universe: Clark can’t figure out why Lois, not usually given to writing gossip articles, has just come up with this fluff piece about a couple of villains at a nightclub.
Harry Potter: An acquaintance from school, who happens to be a Death Eater now, highlights everything wrong with all of Peter Pettigrew’s relationships.
Two Weeks In Photos: Little Animals, stuff I saw while working, and a couple other things (new phone!)
My mom's dad died this morning. I don't need sympathy; I'm just documenting the event. He was an abusive husband and father and one of the most annoying people I've ever met. He was never worse than incredibly obnoxious to me, but I didn't like him. I often have to...
Two Weeks In Photos: Little Animals, stuff I saw while working, some other things
Art Experience Log: A very, very brief set of thoughts on the last 30 or so books/plays I’ve read/listened to.
PL: Life update, NQF 2019, Castlevania fic, ASZz x2, BC 25 (and 7 and a little 24), After-Dinner Brandy, CS 3, New story, Site stuff
Ha ha ha ha ha, remember how last time I made one of these logs, I was like, Oh, I’ll have so much more time to work on stuff going forward! Ha ha ha ha ha ha.
Trowa promised Bernard and Catharine he would tell them the whole truth about himself one of these days. How will his long, tragic story change their feelings about him, and about him dating their son?
I was an active participant in multiple art exchange communities for many years; here you can see the least terrible images I came up with for other people. Also, my favorite exchange pictures drawn for me, as well as gift art and commissions. (This last is the most...
Here you will find a showcase of my favorite pictures I've done, that I love drawing animals, and a collection of previews/detail shots/photos for scale/etc..[ngg src="tags" ids="Visual art...
My Gundam Wing fanart is not quite a big enough collection to have its own gallery. Some of my original art is of characters you won't recognize from old stories. There is probably more Rurouni Kenshin fanart around the site that isn't yet tagged correctly to appear...
Watercolor Pencil (CretaColor Aqua Monolith) is my favorite medium. I also enjoy graphite. Prismacolors frustrate the hell out of me, though they certainly have beautiful results. I used to work with a tablet quite a bit, but these days fibromyalgia makes that...
