Because I am in an impatient mood...
I shall start April's swap now. Besides, this way everyone has more time to plot things.

As promised, this month I am running a fiction/art/icon swap. If you write or draw me something from my list, I will make you an icon of your choice. I suggest listing two or three icons you'd like and keep them as general as possible as finding proper pictures can be impossible at times and if you get too specific, I may not be able to execute it properly.

I've made a list of things I'm interested in. They're broken into three catagories - smut, not smut, and art. The smut catagory doesn't necissarily demand smut as I am mainly interested in character interaction in general, but I am interested in these pairings more...smuttily? Is that a word? The not smut catagories are reserved for pairings that I don't really see being physically intimate, even if given the opportunity (although if you have a really great smut idea, by all means) and art, well, is obvious, I should think (although if any of the art ideas spark a story concept or vice versa, all catagories are a little bit flexible).

The ListCollapse )

Or, if there's an idea you have that you think I might be interested in, run it past me. If you plan on doing something for the swap, there's no need to tell me what, only that you're doing it and what you'd like in return. I trust that I will like whatever you produce.

When you're finished with your piece, post a link here, please. I wouldn't wish to miss anything.

Long time, no see.Collapse )

It would appear...
...that I am not dead.

Of course, neither am I the same person who started this journal. My interests have shifted quite radically in the past few years, but lately I have thought of this journal and the thought is consistently this:

I am not dead.

This is not something I am finished with. It might shift its form a little bit, but it is not gone.

Not yet.

I simply thought you might be interested in knowing.

Proof that I'm only mostly dead.

Make a list of all the characters in your icons. (Although you may have more than one icon of a single character, they only go on the list once.) Alphabetize it. Take the first two people on the list; that's your first pairing. Second two people; second pairing. Etc. Then write your reaction to each pairing (or a snippet of a hypothetical fic featuring each pairing).

Matchmaker, matchmaker...Collapse )

Oh my...

There is nothing quite like discovering that two characters you're quite fond of share a voice in the original Japanese...especially for creating instant, insane crossovers in your head.


At some point, I must find a way to put Vayne Solidor in full, Chinese opera makeup.


And I now really want to hear him say something in Japanese...

A post to prove I'm not dead
Although, there are days I've felt like it. As such, I don't really have much to say.

So I will rant a little.

One of my greatest pet peeves is when someone who should know more than I on a subject does not. Most recent and recurring example is this:

I've never read Alice in Wonderland. I've never read Through the Looking Glass. I keep meaning to, but I've never really had time and a copy in the same place.

I do, however, have a very lovely illustrated version of Jabberwocky. At one point, I had it memorized. I've never had a problem, even when I first discovered the poem, realizing that the poem is Jabberwocky and the creature is the Jabberwock.

I therefore want to scream every time someone who has read the complete works, who has written fiction and drawn art based on the characters, refers to the creature as Jabberwocky...which happens all the time.

Honestly, it's almost as consistent as people referring to Frankenstein's monster as Frankenstein, only without the pop-culture-mis-label to support it.

It is highly aggravating.

And on that note, I think I shall go reread the poem and look at Graemme Base's lovely art.

I am sorry for the long silence.

It is both too busy and too hot over here for productivity, I am afraid.

I am still uncertain what I think of this one. It...didn't scan well. That makes things difficult.

My first Trinity Group member. ...actually, my first non-nobody picture ever.Collapse )

Last for the day...
At least, I think it is. Again, inspired by Syvia and her vampires.Collapse )

Rainy days are for drawing...
I am deeply ashamed of any who did not see this coming.Collapse )
