5/29 Check out my Patreon! See if any of the tiers interest you!
5/10 Ugh. I got a fun idea for a story in the shower last night, but it requires a sex scene. Anyone want to write it for me?
5/3 Success! And now! *sigh* And now back to work.
4/29 This TBoGaH chapter is kicking my ass.
4/24 It took that ankle over a week to get back down to a normal level of pain!!
4/14 My left ankle has been pretending to be sprained for a few days now, and it’s distractingly painful.
4/11 Sometimes I make the final keystrokes of a chapter or story with a great flourish, and throw my hands up in triumph with the rebounding movement.
4/5 You’d think this would be a perfect opportunity to get caught up on posts… but why would I do anything other than write in all this free time???
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*
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.
Sofia the First: Sofia has a dilemma concerning her sister, and there’s only one princess that can give her exactly the advice she needs.
AEL: The Dragon Quartet, 9 From the Nine Worlds, Mansfield Park, The Hundred Days, The Riddle-Master Trilogy
The Dragon Quartet by Marjorie B. Kellogg -- Once upon a time I found the first book of these four at a used bookstore. I believe I was in my mid-to-late teens at the time, and I will frankly admit that it was the beautiful cover that caused me to buy the thing for,...
State of the union -- My joint pain has still been very bad, especially in the hands and wrists. I tested negative for Rheumatoid Arthritis and a variety of autoimmune disorders, so fibromyalgia is the next possibility we're looking at. Taking a new drug that I...
AEL: The Collegia Magica, King Solomon’s Mines, Oz briefly, The Haunting of Hill House, Sofia the First, two O’Brians, The Outlaws of Sherwood, The Wind in the Willows, Misery, two Austens, To Kill A Mockingbird
The Collegia Magica by Carol Berg -- This was my second time through these books, and I find them a very interesting experience. The world the author has created is solidly conceived, makes sense, and fascinates. The characters she populates it with are excellent,...
02/18: You may protest that I have taken and posted this precise photo multiple times in the past. The only thing I would have to say in response to that is that my dog is incredibly cute, and it's fun to see my character wall progressing. Then look at these two...
Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug and Chat Noir: On seeing a new set of Nathaniel’s drawings with a new subject, Chloé’s at it again.
Well, it's been, like, six months since my last Productivity Log, so I hardly know what to say XD There's no way I'll remember everything I've wanted to mention about everything I've worked on, so this is likely to be a little random and scattered. To start with, the...
01/20: I try not to take pictures of every single cute outfit I wear; I really do. But this scarf matched my springy green dress soOoOo well, I just had to document it. OK, we went to Disneyland, the way we do. This time Mostle and Jakebii came with us, but brother...
Rurouni Kenshin fanfiction by kuroiyousei: How might things have gone if Saitou, rather than Kenshin, had beaten some sense into kenkaya Zanza and become his guiding force?
12/29: I pulled out of the garage and saw this guy just chillin' beside the fence. He was there for so long, sometimes asleep but sometimes startled by human comings and goings, that I kinda worried about him. It was super cold that day, and the spot didn't seem...
DC Animated Universe: Lois is too sick to join her boyfriends on the date she had planned. And though they, of course, enjoy each other’s company in any context, can they enjoy the type of evening she had in mind without her?
11/13: It looks like I forgot this one in the last TWIP entry. I just thought these clouds looked cool on the way to work: 11/18: And here's my adorable dog enjoying the bed in various states of the linens being changed. And wot about Piper sneepin' on the laptop!! I...
The proof copies came a lot sooner than I expected (that is, than Amazon originally said they would), and I love they way they look. I think for a future edition I will make the gutter margins a little wider, and there is at least one spot where the word processor did...
Because of the hideous behavior of its creator, I have stepped away from Rurouni Kenshin. I don't have active plans for new stories in that fandom except as pertain to my ongoing stories Aku Soku Zan(za), Blood Contingency, Heretic's Reward, and my His Own Humanity...
Yes, that's right: my darling sister finished drawing the cover illustration for this novel, which is now in the process of publication. The link above leads to the official site, where there are purchase links to Amazon and Barnes & Noble. At the moment only the...
AEL – The Wine-Dark Sea, SW I-II Novelizations, The Tin Woodman of Oz, Bambi/Bambi’s Children, Netflix, The Clone Wars, VLD, Miraculous, Castlevania
The Wine-Dark Sea by Patrick O'Brian -- One thing that's really sweet about these books is that they're unexpectedly slice-of-lifey. The lives happen to be very unusual by the standards of the modern American reader, but we get looks into the everyday and often...
Matías Soto Perez, a very normal human teenager from Earth, suddenly finds himself living a double life, but not the cool kind where he’s a superhero or something; instead, he’s just one of several “monsters” magically summoned every night to another world by a power-hungry alien to help in conquering neighboring villages… and in more mysterious pursuits. Awake in one world whenever he’s asleep in the other, Matías is first catastrophically distracted and then approaching the verge of mental exhaustion. He and the rest of the monsters must find a way to stop the summoning before it makes an even bigger mess of their lives!
Aight, catching up. Again. 10/08: Yes, it's blurry, but it was so cute. Galileo is always so helpful with the laundry. 10/11: I've mentioned before that a sweat shirt or jacket or coat on the end of the couch (where some of us always temporarily drape these things) is...
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...
Two Weeks In Photos: Suki, Heeky, Breathtakey
Halloween is a roller coaster of emotion and adventure for three girls, who just might learn some things in the process.
Two Weeks In Photos: Two things I saw while working, Little Animals
It's that time of year again! The month in which I try to write as many small stories as possible, based on prompts from anyone and everyone! The rules are the same as for Monthly Story Prompts, and on that page you'll also find a list of fandoms I'm familiar with in...
Two Weeks In Photos: A lot of work cats (the last of the clinic pictures) and little else
