Sooooo, you know how I had previously said that I would try for NOT having another months-long break between updates? WELLLlllllp. Life happened, and I'm so sorry I haven't been posting! I've been commenting and replying when I get chances, but no posting. I've built up almost a year's worth of stuff, so I'm sorry in advance for the oncoming spam! I tried to be very selective, so most of the daily doodles and sillier stuff is just on my Tumblr.

I am really sorry, though, guys- I've still been replying to people as often as I can, but I know I haven't been very active on here at all. The good news is that my absence has yielded lots of new drawings and two new chapters of "Highly Unexpected"! Well, completed and proofread chapters. I know I've said before that most of the story is already complete. I ended up adding in a totally new chapter this time around, which will hopefully piece together much of the story later on. I hope everyone will find the new bits to their liking! ^__^

I will be uploading as quickly as I can; there may be a delay between me posting this, and stuff showing up. My internet is a bit slow, so it may take some time.

If you haven't heard from me on a journal, comment or deviation just yet, fear not; I will be getting to you very soon! I've decided that trying to catch up BEFORE posting leads to never posting, so- here goes!


I've been working on a comic project for the past year and some change, and I think it may be ready to post online by Halloween-- that's my hope, as least! It's been a real labor of love, and though I know I have a really long way to go before I feel happy with my abilities, I do really love the world and the characters. I hope that they can bring someone a little bit of entertainment, too!

It's called "The Happy Haunting Agency", and it can be found yonder:

happyhauntingagency.blogspot.c…

This project will NOT be halting Highly Unexpected at all, so no worries! It does take away from leisure drawing, but I always make my stories a priority. ^__^



School started back up again a while ago, leaving an all-too-short summer behind. Summer was busy this year, full of adventures and, of course, Anime Fest Wichita! I revamped my Wiggins costume and finally got to attend a convention as him! Wii-Chan was Kiki, from Kiki's Delivery Service and had such a blast. We saw so many wonderful friends, and made many new ones; I never think that AFW can possibly get any better, and then, every year, it does!

I do hope that you're all doing splendidly! If you want to befriend me on Tumblr or on Facebook, feel free to do so! I'm not very active anywhere, lately, but I do love to hear all about what everyone's doing.

As always, if you ever need someone to talk to, don't hesitate to message me! I do check them, even though I don't actively post on here. I do reply as much as I can, and you guys are very important to me! I love you all! ^__^ <3

Love, waffles, gift baskets and pixie dust,

I'm hoping for more voice projects in the future! I haven't been looking too much this year, though I really would like to. If you have something in need of voices, I'm more than happy to work as a volunteer! ^__^

Hey, guys! I hope everyone is having a happy, and hopefully much better, new year so far.

I realised the other day that, though I've been drawing and writing lots, I've barely posted anything because keeping up on here has become so difficult. My hope for this year is to get caught up, post all the stuff from last year, and keep posting much more frequently.

Someone reminded me that it's been SIX MONTHS since my last real update, for "Highly Unexpected", in particular... Cue panic mode!

The truth is that I spend so much time mom-ing and teaching and taking care of others, that I rarely have time to myself to write in peace. It's just the way my life is right now. Drawing is a bit of a different matter, because I can take it with me, I can work on it in two-second increments over several days, I can talk and draw at the same time... I'm one of those weirdos who needs a peaceful space to write. ^__^;;;

I love writing H.U., particularly because the wonderful people who read it are amazing, helpful and really supportive! I wish that I had more quiet writing time, but at this time, it just isn't happening very often. I am working on chapter 18, rewriting some things that, in retrospect, were just a teensy bit not the way I wanted them to be! I am always working on it, though. Many of the future chapters are already written, waiting for my slow butt to hurry up and get to them! So, no fears- I have no intention of abandoning this story! I'm just... really slow right now.

A note on Highly Unexpected, by the way: I'm not sure what I was thinking, originally, but every time I re-read the older chapters now, I feel like the romance novel-y bits, though not graphic, really aren't super appropriate for the story itself, and so I've gone over them and cut them down a by a lot. I realise that they were pretty much as watered down as possible beforehand, but the scenes still seem a teensy bit jarring-- though I will be leaving in the romantic bits, and some things will still be hinted at. I will be keeping those parts tagged appropriately. Again, I just want my gallery to be a safe environment, and though I don't think those parts are particularly offensive in any way, they do HINT at an adult relationship, and it is a little... off, I guess. I've always felt they were a little out of place, and I still do.

Soooooo, moving on!

I've also been working super hard on a comic- not so much a /web/ comic, but a comic to be put up in batches on the web- which has ended up taking way longer than I had hoped. I really did want to share it with everyone sooner, and see whether or not it was any good! I'm still working on that when I get the time to, as well!

TL: DR
What I mean to say is, I'm so, so sorry that it takes me so long to update sometimes. I'm especially sorry because I'm amazed that you guys read the story, say nice things to me, look at my silly doodles, and it really keeps me going in my endeavors. Someday, I'll hopefully have a lot more time to just write, but for now, I have to just update as often as I can... I'll definitely try my hardest not to have another half-a-year pause!

Last year was pretty tough ( not just for me, of course, but pretty much everyone I know ); a lot happened, and being busy all the time really kicked me in the pants creatively, at least where storytelling is concerned. It's something that a lot of better people go through, yet they still manage to create beautiful things, so I realise it's no excuse, but it's definitely an inhibitor for less-than-time-savvy me. ^__^;;;;;

I've been able to keep up on comments for the most part, but it seems like there isn't enough time in each day to keep up one hundred percent. I'm going to try, though!

To my friends with literary deviations I haven't commented on yet, I am going through a HUGE reading list for friends right now, and I will be reading yours soon, too! There's a just a lot of reading right now, plus reading for Wii-Chan's school. Much to do, but I can't wait to read what you've all made!

You guys are awesome! Thank you for waiting, for reading, for looking, for suporting in all the lovely ways you do! ^__^ <3

Love, coffee, and pixie dust,

Hey, guys! *massive hugs all around*

I want to start off by saying how incredibly sorry I am for the long pause, as far as journals and actual posting go. A couple of people have actually asked about "Highly Unexpected", and as I have told them, it's still being written! I've just been slowed down a lot this year. I will be posting, with any luck, over the next few days, and replying as much as possible. If it takes a little while, I hope you'll bear with me, and I thank you for it!

We had a very long, complicated move which involved a lot of cleaning and fixing before getting to move in, and of course, I teach my daughter, so that's been keeping me plenty busy, too. ^__^   I try to check in here lots and keep up on notes and comments, but I know I've fallen short this year.

Rather than give some long explanation, I will tell you guys that you are awesome, and that I will try to post and reply a lot more often. I can't promise anything, because life is usually full of adventure, but I will certainly try.

Just preemptively, I have to say that while I've done a couple of trades, I am no longer doing them for the time being, due to some upcoming projects and a busy summer ahead with my family. ^_^  I'm really sorry, and I'll try to be available for them in the future!

I am not doing commissions openly in queue at the moment, but I am open to work if it's available!

There are some projects this year that I'm incredibly excited about, but I suppose I'll see whether they bloom or not.

I hope you all have a fabulous and magical summer, and please, do feel free to contact me on Tumblr, as I have a way easier time keeping up on there!

Love, waffles, and pixie dust,

First off, I'd like to apologize for the insanely long pause between replying and commenting on here. Since about early October, possibly late September, I honestly can't remember much at the moment, everyone here has been getting sick. First I got it, then my partner, then our daughter, and the cycle repeated itself.

We more recently experienced the loss of two pets in the span of a week- our fish, Gil; and then our cat, Lulu, lost her long battle with cancer. I rather fell out of touch with my usual sites, and have been working on getting back out into things, and being cheerful and sociable.

Writing, art, thinking of the future, and most of all, most importantly, thinking about all of you, have kept me powering through! ...Well, and coffee, but that's another matter entirely.
You are all the very best friends I could ever have wished for. If not for friends, life, I think, would be dreadfully bleak.

While I've been planning to post all of these updates, new chapters of "Highly Unexpected" and a standard poop-ton of art, tending to sick people constantly and trying to keep teaching my daughter at home have just swamped out all else.

I will be posting new chapters, and art, but because of the back log, there is likely to be a lot all at once. I also will be slow on comments, favourites, replies- just letting you all know right off the bat.

Future chapters of H.U. are in the wings, being edited when ever time can be found- and that, right now, is not often. To those who read it, you are appreciated so, so much!


Since I am unlikely to be caught up enough to post a holiday journal in time this year, I wish you all a very wonderful winter!

I LOVE YOU ALL! More than you can ever know! :heart:

Much love,

This is just a short journal, I promise! I am ever catching up on here, so please do forgive any lateness! School started up last month, and I have been teaching my little one. Lots to do! Never hesitate to stop by, and if you need someone to talk to, I am here!
I am also on Tumblr, and I am on there a little more often: cupilcopter.tumblr.com/
( It is totally safe, apart from the occasional cuss! I keep my Tumblr clean, so follow away! ^_^ )
And I post art on there first, these days! It takes so long to upload to DevArt, and to catch up first, that I find it much simpler to put things on Tumblr.

Lulu is still alive and well, and life is a bustling hub of activity! I haven't had any new voice projects, but "The Taffetas" is still undergoing work, so do check out their site, listed below! It's going to be something very special!

I will be posting new "Highly Unexpected" chapters very soon! I have one ready for sure, and may put it up tonight. I think I will... I might, now that I'm caught up on messages. I'm just so unsure of whether they're any good! ANYWEASEL.

I hope you all have a wonderful month, and I hope that Autumn arrives hastily! Hugs to you all!

Love and waffles,

Hello, everybody!

Normally, I have something in mind for writing here, like an organized little list of things that I want to say, which matter a bit because I don't often catch up on messages enough to be able to post a journal!

I've been really ridiculously sick ( super bad sinus infection ) for a while now, am finally getting better, and feel mentally capable to commenting and knowing what words I'm typing! I will be catching up to all of you lovely people over the next few days- hopefully all today, but I never bank on anything anymore!

I will be finishing up chapters 14, and hopefully 15, of "Highly Unexpected" before summer ends- I honestly thought that I would have more edited by now, but things have just gone to Hades and back. 14 is mostly done- just a few more things I want to go over before it's ready! To those who read, thank you so much for your patience! The story has not been abandoned!

:wizardhat: Anime Fest Wichita was amazing again this year! My allergies decided to make me incredibly sick the day before and the day of, so not only had I pulled an all-nighter with a painful throat ( thank GOSH for Ruby Gloom; it seriously kept me alive that night ), but I felt like I was slogging through Jell-O all day. Still, for the con to be as epic as it was, despite those things, I think says a lot about the lovely people who were there, and who ran it.
I was Kaylee from Firefly, something I've always wanted to do, but never got around to- I still need to add all of the Chinese writing to the suit, then do another shoot with my sis, but for the amount of time I had to work with in between all of the chaos, I feel it still looked okay! If I post any pics of it, and you see there's no writing on the suit, well... be forgiving! ^_^;; I just ran short of time.  

Wii-Chan was Amaterasu ( Okami ), and got so, so much love! People of AFW are so wonderful! And so is my sister, for making her reflector shield! Wii's dress, belt, tail and ears were all hand-sewn ( by meee )! I felt really proud of it, like all the extra work was definitely worth it.

Because so many things went wrong in the months leading up to the con, my costume ended up being lacking in a lot of detail, and was still about fifty sizes too big, but people were extraordinarily sweet, and we got tons of hugs and photos! I was nervous to cosplay a Firefly character at an anime convention, but there was SO many fans! So many! It was amazingggg. It does my heart good to have met so many browncoats!

Most importantly, Wii had a great time, and in the end, that's the best reason to keep going, year after year. The people were fantastic- we made so many new friends, and saw so many ones we already know... It was just a blast!

And Wii sang "Still Alive" on Rock Band in the game room. It was pretty danged adorable.


:wizardhat:  The GOOD news is that "The Taffetas" pitch project ( thetaffetas.blogspot.com/ ) seems to be coming along really nicely, and at a great speed! I can't overstate my excitement about this project! If you haven't yet, I implore you to go check it out. It's awesome. ^_^

:wizardhat:  The sad news is that, following up on my previous journal, my kitty Lulu was found to have an aggressive form of cancer caused by the feline leukemia vaccination. It is a very rare occurrence, and although the tumor is gone, things will get worse either soon, or later on down the road- it's all a matter of waiting. It's been an intense couple of months, with Ein becoming deathly ill back in May, then Lulu getting so sick in June, but we must keep on swimming! A Fflam is resilient!

Anyweasel!

:wizardhat:  As of August 3, I will officially be closing commissions again! I'll still be working with a couple of people, but our school year is, for whatever reason, starting waaaay earlier this year, as our new principal decided that kids love losing most of a month of summer!
So, we'll be dealing with a brand-new curriculum, a whole new system, and a LOT of really odd changes, and I won't be able to provide any manner of snappy service during all these new things.

If you want to be put in a queue for just in case, of course you are welcome to! Just note me, e-mail me or something of the like, and I'll let you know if I can draw you something. ^_^

I hate to have to close down so soon, but the summer just sort of got sucked away this year. There is still a whole month left to make stuff for people, and that is exciting!


I hope this journal finds you all in a great summer- some of you, I hope, a better summer than you've been having! I wish you all health, happiness and hopefully something cool to drink!

Much love and many waffles,
          M. Cat

Hello, everybody!

I'm sorry for the extremely late replies and comments! This month has been intense, more so than I initially expected. I want to thank those who have commissioned me already, and to say how exciting it's been so far! I'll be really sad to close them down in August, but for the summer, it's been a really great experience!

As those of my friends on Facebook know, my kitty was recently discovered to have a tumor, which we had thought was an abscess and tried to treat at home initially. When it didn't get any better after a short while, we took her in. Thanks to the vet allowing us to pay half at the time of surgery and half later, we were able to help her. She's now recovering, but because of the extent of the tumor and how much of her leg had to be removed, she requires a lot of care and my replies may yet be a little slow.
We are currently waiting to hear back from the pathologist about the tumor- hopes are not high, but mine remain, thanks to the encouragement of my dear friends!

I've been fortunate in having plenty of fun commissions to do so far, and have also been working on gift art for father's day ( three dads in my life! ), my mom's birthday, and am hand sewing two costumes for our local anime festival at the end of this month- one for my daughter, and one for myself. Busy, busy, busy! It does the spirit good to have lots to do, I think.

I wanted to quickly pop on, try to comment as much as possible, and spam with some art I've been meaning to put up, but haven't had the time to! I apologize in advance for this!

I will continue to catch up on literary deviations and journals as time warrants! I don't want to miss a thing, but I'm neck-deep in work at the moment! ^_^ You are all very important to me, and I promise I won't ignore you!

May you all have a splendid summer!

Love and waffles,
     
       M. Cat


Commissions notice!

I am still open, but there is a queue! Never hesitate to ask, and if you want to, just note me with the info ahead of time so I can jump on in when the next spot is available! I want to try to get to everyone before summer's end. You are always free to change your mind once it's your turn! No hard feelings will be had.


     Commission Info

I will be taking commissions for the duration of the summer, barring any major life problems! I may be stopping once school starts back up again, so get 'em while you can!  a w a


:tea:Mediums

The usual! Pencils are my specialty, but I also work with ink, paint/watercolour, mixed mediums and I can CG! I love trying new mediums, so don't hesitate to challenge me!


:tea:Prices

$15.00 for all commissions, regardless of medium! Up to two characters for the base price!

:bulletpurple: +$2.00 for an added character beyond that

:bulletpurple: +$5.00 for a detailed background ( lots going on; to clarify, I mean LOTS. A city, crowd, really intense details everywhere... I certainly don't want anyone to shy away from asking for some detail! )

Hopefully that will make things easy and fair!


:tea:Payment Method

Paypal for the time being! It is a simple and safe program, and there won't be any fees on the customer's end.
It allows for customers to perform a transaction safely and securely, without having to give me any info at all. I'm sorry if this is inconvenient to anyone!

If you absolutely can't use Paypal, checks are now welcomed also!


Here's how it goes:

:bulletpurple: I will not ask for anything whatsoever until your commission is completed!

:bulletpurple: I will send you the lineart version first, to get your approval to continue with colouring/shading, etc. This will be watermarked, not as an offense to anyone's trustworthiness, but as a standard.

:bulletpurple: I will send you a watermarked preview version of the completed product for your approval, and once you have agreed that you are happy with it and have completed the transaction on Paypal ( I will give you the e-mail address information once you are ready ), I will send you the full, unmarked file.
I will trust you, as an awesome person. Because you are awesome, and you wouldn't just steal all that hard work, now would ya? Of course not! :3

:bulletpurple: For the moment, I am unable to mail physical copies, but I ALWAYS keep the original safely with me and am looking into good shipping methods for in the future. For now, only digital copies can be commissioned! I am very sorry for this!

:bulletpurple: If you need special parental permission to give out your address, you can always refer them to me and I will be more than happy to answer any of their questions and help put them at ease. I do not share private information, over the internet or otherwise.


:tea:Info On Your Part

Never personal info, of course. This is about descriptions!
I will, as with requests, need plenty of info and lots of description on what you would like!
That means, to guarantee your complete satisfaction, I will need to know, for example, such things as:

:bulletpurple: Style and medium you'd prefer; feel free to be specific, as it is helpful and I won't mind!

:bulletpurple: Character species, etc.

:bulletpurple: Hair, skin and eye colour, etc., as well as hair length and other important physical details

:bulletpurple: Specific wishes for their facial and bodily expressions

:bulletpurple: A good idea of the character/creature's personality

:bulletpurple: General body size and height scale

:bulletpurple: Vivid wishes for background, unless you want me to make something up, which I will be more than happy to do. Pictures with no background are obviously just fine, too. ^_^

:bulletpurple: Any other stuff you have locked up in your head for me to play with! I love having lots of ideas to work with.

:bulletpurple: If there are more than one character, you may want to explain how you want them to be interacting, if at all... that sort of thing.

Please remember to tell me everything you might want me to know! Reference pictures are greatly appreciated when available, of course ( if they're available and not easy to find in your gallery, that is- I'm used to manually researching characters and not being a total bum ). :3

I will not draw anything excessively naughty, nothing romantic involving minors, etc. Mpreg and slash are welcomed, though! ^_^


:tea:Copyright Notices

:bulletpurple: Due to copyright laws, I think I will start with drawing OCs and the like, unless permission for a character can be obtained, or they are public domain. I know this will limit me to doing requests-only in the fan art category, but it would be illegal for me to make profit off of someone else's concepts, so I'm afraid I just can't. That doesn't mean you can't drop a request idea my way! I may have time eventually. ^_~


:tea:Time Allowance

Pictures with more than one character or a very detailed setting may take longer than those without. I will always work my hardest to get your drawing done within as short a time frame as possible, but I also want to be able to take the time to assure the best quality I can produce!
Basically, since you're not paying before anything is done, I ask that you give me plenty of patience.

I will notify customers of any real-life emergencies or major delays.


:tea:DeviantArt Permission

You can decide whether or not it's okay for me to post your commission on DA, or elsewhere on the internet. If you don't want me to, I won't post it anywhere.
If it's your character and you don't mind me sharing the drawing, you will receive full credit for them and lots of linkback!

You may post your commission anywhere you like, but I ask that you please give me credit for it, fi you can. Oh, and be sure to link it to me if you can, so I can see it and be all warm and fuzzy inside!

Commissions are not to be resold, please. ^_^
For business endeavors, please contact me on that note in specific, as I would be more than happy to be flexible about that.


:tea: Availability

I will be keeping one commission slot at any given time for the summer, because being a mom takes up a lot of time!


If you request one while the current in-progress slots are full, I'll jot you down and contact you once one is open, so that you can still get one if you are interested at that point.

  • Playing: Dynasty Warriors Online, RIFT
  • Drinking: CAFFEINE, SWEET MANA OF LIIIIFE
I know I have a boatload of outstanding messages, journals, art and the like to catch up on, and I promise I shall- but I wanted to first let everyone know that we are alive and well! We had a tornado right across the street ( quite literally ) on Saturday. We were lucky enough to have pretty much the whole evening in advance to know that something would be coming, so we were able to take shelter in our bathroom, along with a couple of other friends from our gaming group, and their kitty. It was a tight fit and a really scary night, but we somehow managed to not be hit  ( in our apartment building; the neighborhood was not in a good way ) at all. We heard something loud, but couldn't be sure as all lights were off everywhere and all we had was the radio giving a general area.
Our complex was trashed, but everyone in the affected apartments are safe and will be taken care of.

We've been without power for some time now, mostly due to everything power-related being ripped up out of the ground in our neighborhood, so I'm taking advantage of having it now to check in here! ^_^

I'm slowly hearing back from friends and family around here, and with each one there's a huge rush of relief.

My heart goes out so, so much to folks who didn't make it out lucky. With the power finally up, I'm still learning more news of the devastation in other areas, people losing families, homes... It's horrible. I'm going to see what can be done to help. I feel more than lucky to still be alive with my family. I feel like I should do something to help out those that weren't!

I hope you guys are safe out there, where ever each of you may be all over the world!

I know I have a boatload of outstanding messages, journals, art and the like to catch up on, and I promise I shall- but I wanted to first let everyone know that we are alive and well! We had a tornado right across the street ( quite literally ) on Saturday. We were lucky enough to have pretty much the whole evening in advance to know that something would be coming, so we were able to take shelter in our bathroom, along with a couple of other friends from our gaming group, and their kitty. It was a tight fit and a really scary night, but we somehow managed to not be hit  ( in our apartment building; the neighborhood was not in a good way ) at all. We heard something loud, but couldn't be sure as all lights were off everywhere and all we had was the radio giving a general area.
Our complex was trashed, but everyone in the affected apartments are safe and will be taken care of.

We've been without power for some time now, mostly due to everything power-related being ripped up out of the ground in our neighborhood, so I'm taking advantage of having it now to check in here! ^_^

I'm slowly hearing back from friends and family around here, and with each one there's a huge rush of relief.

My heart goes out so, so much to folks who didn't make it out lucky. With the power finally up, I'm still learning more news of the devastation in other areas, people losing families, homes... It's horrible. I'm going to see what can be done to help. I feel more than lucky to still be alive with my family. I feel like I should do something to help out those that weren't!

I hope you guys are safe out there, where ever each of you may be all over the world!

While I'm here and caught up, I guess I'll just quickly update this old thing, too! I'll be uploading two new chapters of "Highly Unexpected" in short order. I'm ridiculously nervous about them, but my hope is that they will be well received!

Before I say anything else, I just wanted to let you guys know that KingGilder, director of "Skies of Arcadia Abridged" is looking for voice actors for minor roles, and may possibly be looking for other character voices as well. You can contact him via his YouTube page:
www.youtube.com/playlist?list=… !

As I always say, it never hurts to ask, or to try out! You never know when more roles may become available!

Things, as usual, are busy- I know I sound like a broken record, but it always holds true. Wii-Chan has been taking Tae Kwon Do, and earned her first belt stripe earlier this month! So prooouud!
Most of our nights are taken up with D&D or Tae Kwon Do, alternately, and I certainly can't complain about that! ^_^

I'm continuing to work on my children's book, when there is time, with "Highly Unexpected" as a priority, because I would just love to finish a story for once, and I love the heck out of the characters. I also have a couple of friends who have kept it alive, and kept me going. I less than three yooouuu!

...Aaaaand...

For more frequent updates, you can follow my Tumblr: cupilcopter.tumblr.com/

I post lots of doodles and stuff that never make it here! ...You know, if you're interested in that kind of thing.
It is easier to catch up on there, and more of my friends have switched to it because of the virus issues from DeviantArt. Yes, DA, I'm looking at you! You really ought to be more stringent about checking your ads and their content before allowing them to be everywhere.

I shan't go into much further detail! I just wanted to update this and wish you guys an awesome year, and let you know that I'm still alive! ^_^

Greetings, everyone! I'm EXTREMELY sorry for how long it's taking me to get through comments, notes, journals and deviations! I've been swamped, and am going to focus on catching up over the next couple of weeks. If you're waiting to hear from me, know that I will get to you soon! My daughter's birthday is almost here, so I've been buried in art and crafting for many things. My hands are permanently curled into a talon-like knitting/sewing/drawing/laundry-carrying/dish-washing/surface-scrubbing grip. That, and there is much else going on, too, not the least of which is the pets' sudden festive need to cover every inch of the house in some organic substance or other.

I just wanted to pop in and wish everyone very happy holidays, and to say the biggest possible thank-you for everything. The friends that I've found in this community are amazing. I am more grateful for you all than I can ever express. You guys are amazing!!! :heart::heart::heart: /mushiness


:snowflake:I hope that you all stay safe, warm, and find much happiness! :snowflake:

Lots of love,

Okay, I've been trying to catch up on messages here for TWO WEEKS, trying to just be totally all caught up before posting anything so no one feels snubbed, and... I can't seem to.
SOoooooo, I am posting a few things and then I promise I shall be catching up as often as possible! There is just too much to do, not enough hours in the day, and MAN do you guys ever reply quickly! I need super powers just to communicate digitally!

That being said, I'm sorry for my absence! I know I sound like a broken record, but things have just been incredibly busy. 'Tis the time of year for it! I do read my comments very often, but sometimes I'm so overwhelemd by how sweet they are, I feel like I need to take time to come up with something not totally stupid to say in return! Sometimes I look back at flustered comments and wonder what the heck I was even trying to say at the time. Do you ever have that problem?

Between teaching, cleaning, taking care of the family, dealing with medical stuff, ren faire prep for the fall faire ( we finally got to volunteer this year, and it POURED on us all day, haha )... Lots to do, and never a dull moment!

I really want to thank all of you guys so, so, so much for everything!
ILU FR SRSsssss


:tea: The Good :tea:

I haven't said anything about it here yet because I'm not sure what is considered okay, as far as talking about it in public goes, but I am too excited to hold it back any longer! That, and they also seem to have been listing other current volunteer VAs on there, so I assume it's not too hush-hush.

I'm EXTREMELY happy to announce that I'm currently signed up to be the volunteer voice actress for Elena in The Taffetas, an upcoming web series pitch project! I hope that this is a role I will be able to keep playing for as long as possible, because I'm falling more and more in love with the world and the characters every day, but even if not, I support it with all my heart!

This project looks incredible, you guys, and they still need talent ( not just VAs, but artists, and all other manner of volunteers ), so give 'em a look!

On the voice acting frontier, and also just because they're both awesome series, there have been more Skies of Arcadia Abridged and Colorful Five episodes which I haven't updated here simply because I've been too swamped to write up a new journal!
The part with the admirals in episode 5... ah mah gaaaawwwd

Be warned of the usual warnings I give: contains coarse language, some naughty humor and plenty o' Pony references!

SoAA 5 : youtu.be/QTELHDqQpGs

The Bad

Now, I'd like to make it very clear that the following is not in any way a vie for pity, but rather, a hopeful message!

I'm going to be open here, because this place has been my home-away-from-home for almost eight years, and I feel comfortable talking about stuff here that I wouldn't elsewhere.

I've not really brought it up anywhere seriously before, partly because I was ashamed, and partly because everyone else had other things going on their lives. It was just never the right time.

I have severe, constant anxiety and panic attacks. I have for as long as I can remember ( I recall pacing the floor of my room every night as a kid to try to wear myself down to the point of being tired, making lists of why I felt guilty, which was usually about my parents being unhappy or people not having food, or what world events made me sad and how I wished, so hard, that I could help ), but in recent years it's gotten a lot worse. Anyone else who goes through it probably knows what I'm talking about. You are literally your worst enemy.
I know there are way worse things, and that's a huge part of what's made me fight the heck out of it. ( Protip: Help others out and focus on outside problems as much as possible. It's a great way to realise that, not only are you totally not alone, but there is a whole world out there full of others who have it worse and need your help, and the time you'd otherwise waste feeling scared for no good reason! )

Another thing that I never really openly talked about is that I also had a lymphoma/leukemia scare earlier this year which sent me into this whole "okay, I'm probably going to be a goner soon for real instead of just thinking about it and my family's going to be left all alone, my daughter won't have a mom, growing up, my partner will be alone, and my friends won't have anyone to be a leaning shoulder anymore... Man, I really need to live every day to the fullest in case medicine doesn't help" and all the other things that go through your head when your doctor mentions the big "L" word and then tells you that you have to wait six weeks to see if you return to normal. I felt then, even more than ever before, that it was time to do as much as possible, and try to right all the wrongs of the past.
So far, it's just been angry lymph nodes due to carrying too much heavy stuff and generally mistreating my very sad arms.

The blood tests came back great, with the exception of anemia, and while the crippling fear abated a little, the fire beneath my backside to make the most of life and conquer said fear remained.
Gratefulness +500!

Lately, it all seemed to be focusing more and more on art and writing, how much worse they were in the past, and the biggest issue of all has been how stupid I felt for posting fanfiction. These are, at least I assume, natural feelings for all people who create to go through, but when you spend every waking moment, especially at night when sleep won't come, thinking, thinking, thinking, over-analyzing, worrying... It spirals into a very dark place, very rapidly.

While I've actually come to learn some amazing lessons through this whole process, and through fighting to overcome the fear ( completely med-free, since my family's history with meds is not so fabulous, and also because I'm afraid of medicine )... There have been a lot of negative things that continue to resurface. Some of you reading this will surely know the feeling. I'm really hoping that all of this will teach me how to help others out, and maybe find a widespread way to help them fight it.

Anysteve, I started becoming increasingly afraid that my fanfictions would keep me from being able to be a serious writer, or that Disney would one day find me and take me away in an unmarked van for writing romance scenes about two of their male characters, never to be seen again.

I ended up cleaning out massive amounts of old art and finally felt a little better after doing so. I will continue to do so with work I feel is no longer good.

I'm still constantly debating the fan stories. I love writing them in between original projects because they are fun, a lot more relaxing than real stories, and I feel like maybe they make a handful of people happy. That's all that most storytellers can ever hope for, isn't it?


:tea: The Unexpected :tea:

Speaking of...
New chapters of "Highly Unexpected" will be finding their way here over time, though there will probably be a bit of a gap during the holidays. I'm also trying to finish up my children's book and "Widget", but I do love how amazing everyone has been over my silly little fic. I sometimes feel like fanfiction is the biggest waste of time, like I'm just being an idiot writing it, like it's horrible because it's implied that the two characters have an adult relationship and I've ruined the movie and... and then I get these incredible messages and even a story ( ! ) involving the characters and I just... I know I say it often, but words cannot express!

I'd like to think that fanfiction isn't a waste of time, isn't something stupid, but is in fact something as worthwhile as writing an original story, because when it is executed properly, it can bring a lot of happiness to others, and possibly give greater depth to characters who only have a short amount of screen time, and not a lot of attention from their creators.

I put a lot of love and thought into my own characters when I write normally, and I try to give that same energy to characters that aren't mine, too.

Anyway, thanks for giving this crazy lady hope that she's not a total failure!

I hope the new season finds you all in better times, higher spirits, and on fairer tides!

Love, peace and waffles,

Bumping down my old, long journal for a couple of random things, nothing dramatic or lengthy, so hopefully this won't bog down your message centers too heavily!

Before I go on and forget my manners, how are you guys? I hope everyone is well!


I can't post this on DevArt because it's just 'shopped screencaps, not anything property-wise that's really mine ( and not Disney's ), but I wanted to share! This is the only place where I know people who enjoy Wiggins and Ratcliffe!

You know all those slash pictures/videos of random characters 'shopped together? Not that there's anything wrong with them, but... Well, I've decided to try my hand with a pairing of which I'm fond! I felt it only fair.

( It's Wiggins and Ratcliffe! Perfectly work safe, nothing naughty )

Manly men, manly hugs! Manly manly manly. ( The result of the awesome screencap parties Wii and I have... Possibly sugar, as well. )
THE TRUE (B)ROMANCE IN POCAHONTAS. Who wants to see John Smith, anyway?

My "skills" are lacking horribly... But it was fun, at any rate.


And now for something completely different. :iconjohncleeseplz:

Tagged by :iconairy-f:! Thanks! I don't do these very often any more, and they're quite fun.


1) What are you doing right now?
Illustrating a book I've been working on, and doing chores. ( And, yes, editing chapters 9-12 of "Highly Unexpected"! ^_^ )

2) what is your favourite show?
Oh, jeez... It's so hard to choose... Currently, I'd say Reaper, The IT Crowd, Merlin, Perfect Strangers, Glee, So You Think You Can Dance and Big Wolf on Campus.

3) What would you like to do as Job?
My super impossible dream job is being Wiggins at a Disney park, but...
Voice actor/ game developer/ anything to do with animation and making animated films or games!

4) Sea or Mountain?
Mountain! :3

5) Favourite Pet?
I reeeaaally want a budgy some day!

6) If you had to sing a song of your choice what would it be?
Probably something from Pocahontas. XD

7) Are you a Facebook addict?
Maybe not an addict, but it's the only way to get people to talk anymore, especially since most everyone I know lives very far away.

8) Are you happy now Harry Potter is Over or you wished for more movies?
I'd be happy with more books!

9) Have you got brothers or sisters?
One sister, one step-sister, and one sister-in-law!

10) Do you still have some of the good old Vhs?
Almost all my favourite movies are still in VHS format in my home ( THREE MUSKETEERS WOOO! )... Except for Quest for Camelot. That one I only have on DVD. ^_^;;
( I still don't own Pocahontas! I'm working on fixing that! )


     My questions!

1. Preferred mode of transportation: dragon, gryphon, broom, or other?
2. What is your favorite thing to drink?
3. Do you have any video game crushes/idols?
4. What is the most interesting pair of socks that you own?
5. If you could, would you go on a paranormal investigation? Who would you bring along and where would you most like to go ( if you were going )?
6. Pancakes or waffles?
7. Most favorite pairing at this very moment?
8. What song would you say best describes you currently?
9. If you had to choose, which Dungeons and Dragons class would you want to be in real life?
10. Do you have an item you feel is lucky?


    I taggeth: all of you! All of yooouuuu! Hahahahahahahaaaa THE POWER! THA POWAAAAA!

Anyone who is bored and wants to do this. Knock y'selves out!

  • Watching: Perfect Strangers and Jyu-Oh-Sei
  • Playing: Amnesia and Eternal Darkness
  • Drinking: CAFFEINE, SWEET MANA OF LIIIIFE
I wrote this out right after I got back from AFW, but I've had such a hard time of catching up on messages here that it's now a bit old.

I hope to have an update with pictures/videos eventually, but as my sister did not have her camera out on the only day we were there, I don't think there will be very many.
We were in the fashion show, so when that surfaces, it ought to be nice and awkward/funny to watch! ^_^

( There is one on FB, but I don't know if it's okay for me to share it here. Once there is one on YouTube, I'll try to share it in case anyone is interested )

IT WAS AMAZING and we met Skies of Arcadia cosplayers right off the bat! I NEARLY DIED OF HAPPINESS. I hope I didn't scare them with the noise of fangirlish excitement that I emitted, sort of like a teapot boiling. There was super sweet lady who talked with all of us and was a Tales fan, too, but I didn't recognize the character because I fail at life! She looked so familiar, but I couldn't place it! I'll probably remember later. Uggh, I'm such a dork.

If you are reading this, it was great talking to all of you, and also the really awesome girls ( one Lugia ) I got to talk Tales of Vesperia shop with as we walked through the hotel.
I need to start taking names! It's always so rushed when I'm not by myself!
SOCIAL INEPTITUDE, GO!

Wii-Chan was a great Repede again, and next year I'm making her something way cooler! Poor baby was awfully overheated during rehearsals.

She did amazingly in the end and won the "Most Ferocious" award! She is so stoked! Her very first award! I am so proud!!!

We met so many amazing people, including some Hanna is Not a Boy's Name cosplayers ( thanks much for the hugs! ), a lovely Sora we met two years ago, Horo/Holo of Spice and Wolf ( who was awesome and gave Wii-Chan a sweet pep-talk before we had to go onstage for the cosplay fashion show; we will never forget your kindness! It meant so much to Wii because she loves Spice and Wolf and Holo is her idol, so hearing words of wisdom and courage from her hero will probably stay with her for life. :heart: ) and just GAH SO MANY GREAT PEOPLE.

I love all those guys! It's such a supportive, close, familial atmosphere... I don't ever get family reunions, and this is more like one for me, only better because we actually get along. X3

Our friend Derek, who runs the newest and best game shop in town, Hero Complex ( www.facebook.com/pages/Hero-Co… ) was also running lots of stuff there. That guy never ceases to amaze me.

Aaaaand Troy freaking Baker, Eric freaking Vale and Peter freaking Pixie! Troy was kind enough to sign my copy of Tales of Vesperia. Yessssss. It says "Happy Gaming!" :iconimhappyplz:

The timing was a bit unfortunate for me, because I had to have a tooth extracted the day before we went- so I've been on and off tired, hurting like crazy, facially poofed up, partially unable to talk and unable to eat. x_x   

If I talked to you and seemed kind of quiet or not very smiley, it was because I was having trouble smiling/speaking! I love meeting new people!

But it was so awesome anyway! And I no longer have to worry about that tooth. It made all the trauma at the dentist's feel like a distant memory!

The saddest was that the talented and wonderful Cassandra Hodges passed away not but a week before the con, at which we were hoping to finally meet her... She will be dearly missed and we were all incredibly sad for both her and her loved ones. We miss you, Cassi! I loved all your voice work and you seemed like a wonderful person! :heart:

...Despite the tragedy, everyone pulled together beautifully and it was wonderful to be able to go again, after having missed out last year.

I'm going to go ice my face now and try to regrow some gums! XD

May you all have a fantastic July!


                    Love and Waffles,

I am psyched and terrified that I play Zelda in it. I don't know if I did her justice, but playing both kid AND adult Zelda has to count for something, right? Right?

I creep myself out with the psuedo-little-kid voice. o _ o It's like something out of a horror film. I do not know why my director is awesome and does not notice/acknowledge this creepiness.

Episode 4 is my fave so far. Dear gawd, I have lol'd so much. Aaaaaaaah.


This has been incredibly fun to do and has presented me with some other fun opportunities for playing squeaky ladies in other projects, so it's been better than a good experience, it's been a good awesome fun good experience! Or something like that.


Those on FB ( hissss ) already know about Wii-Chan's asthma, so I shan't rehash it too much here. The good news is that she will hopefully be improving soon!

Aside from real life things, there is not much to report. I just wanted to bump down the old journal and share the two new eps. Our director and fellow VAs could use some more love, I'm sure! Can never have too much, I say!

..."Guildeus Maximus" is on hiatus due to work overload. I am hoping to pick it back up soon! I really wasn't ready to start posting when Eme/Kitty announced it... Cats needs moar time!

Highest of Fives!

Journal Entry: Tue Feb 8, 2011, 7:27 AM
Photobucket

So much has happened since my last journal! I hardly know where to begin, so I'll just start, keep it simple, and then stop. That seems like a good strategy.

I hope you all are having a fabulous February! If not fabulous, then at least not horrible.

I'd like to note, first of all, that I AM, in fact, still writing "Highly Unexpected", I'm just completely stuck on the current bit. I don't know whether or not to bother writing about Ratcliffe shmoozing his way out of trouble, because honestly ( DARN YOU, DISNEY ) I do not see how he did it. I have been researching my bum off, and I truly cannot understand how Ratcliffe, given the background described in the art book by his creators, got out of such a heap of trouble. King James I is portrayed as an idiot in the second film, even though there's no evidence to support that, simply because he would HAVE to be in order for him to let Ratcliffe traipse around doing whatever! ( I love how Queenie is classy and has to make up for the King's jerkishness, lolzorz )
Any suggestions, guys? Should I just leave it out and stick to Wiggins' point of view, or would that be cheapening it? Thoughts are welcome!


Aaaanyway! There's actual real-life stuff I've been doing and the usual drama, stress and worry that everyone experiences, but I don't like to put that on the internet, because frankly, it's boring and no one's interested anyway!

A few days ago, I launched a new once-in-a-while World of Warcraft-themed webcomic, which was prompted a little prematurely by husbandy-type-person/guild leader seeing a glimpse of the site layout and announcing to EVERYONE that it was ready to do when it TOTALLY WASN'T. -_-;;
Cue totally panicked, fast-working Tal!

I am planning on taking on commissions soon! I've been asked a lot, surprisingly, and my answer is still YES! I am hoping that this little comic will help me to become faster-working and keep me motivated to draw even on days when I don't feel it's working out.

I felt that a webcomic would be a fun little way to have a side project without it being a strain on anyone else and that it might promote the guild a little bit, too, or at least keep its members entertained... If only it were funny! Alas!

Sooo, for those who troll WoW, I present Guildeus Maximus!
guildeusmaximus.blogspot.com

We celebrated the second episode of Skies of Arcadia Abridged last month, which I did not post about on FB because my grandpa watches me on there and some of the jokes are quite rude. ^_^ Family first, as they say! The link it below in my "links" section, for anyone interested. I was pretty tired on the day that I recorded, so my stuff's subpar, but it's always so much fun, even when you're not feeling the greatest!

Wii and I are working on a new costume set, too, which sadly is not yet Quest for Camelot, though we are still trying to plan it. That is a big undertaking and I am still working on the mechanics of a Ruber wig.
I am determined to be Ruber one day, but not this year! It's simply too much this year.
Instead, we're planning out a Dragon Hunters cosplay because it is much simpler for such a busy year, and because my costume will not require me to buy a wig ( thank heavens )! I'm tired of having lungs full of Aquanet!
I hope to make a little Lian-Chu plushie to carry around with me, since I don't have anyone who would be willing to go as him. I wish I could, but I'm, uh... not really built for it. ^_^;;
We're trying to convince my sister to go as Jennyline so we'll be closer to a full set, but I don't think she's buying into it!  XD   
( The costume she's making is going to kick arse, though! I am just too excited about it!!! )

I also tried my best to convince Wii to be Zaza, but she is bound and determined to be Hector! Like I didn't see that one coming a mile away! Zaza is just so cuuuuuuuuuuuute. *whines* And they have the same gap-tooth because Wii is in between teeth at the moment! *cuteness flail*
Ah, well, at least the Hector suit will be cozy. We use her cosplay suits a lot in between events, because they're comfy and warm. ^_^


Anyway, Cat rambles too much! I hope you guys have a better month that what it sounds like everyone is having. I am hoping for more peace in this world in the days to come! :heart:

Love to all!
Thank you for always being patient with me, guys!!!

    Love and waffles,

Late New Year Friend Feature!

Journal Entry: Thu Jan 13, 2011, 6:25 AM
Photobucket

LOADIN' THIS ONE IS GONNA BE A DOOZY! Sorry, folks!


A happy, though now late, new year to you all!

It's been pretty crazy here, as always, but I finally got round to finishing this! I had hoped to have this ready by New Year's Eve, but alas! It was not meant to be.

Looking to the past and over the year 2010, I see a lot of sadness for the world and some for our own lives, my family's and those of friends. We've overcome hurdles both enormous and small.
My hope, as with every year, is that the next will be a happier and more hopeful one... Also, that the world will not meet its end or be overrun with disgruntled zombies. Friendly ones would be fine, of course.

We have so many plans for this new year and I hope at least one or two will come to fruition through enough hard work!
What are some of yours?


As a small but cheerful tribute to the past year and decade, the years before them, and the ones ahead, I am featuring every active friend I have ( active as in still on this site to my knowledge ^_^; ). HOWEVER, if you are somehow not on this list, pleasepleaseplease do inform me! This was a long list to put together and I'm assuming now rather than later that I will manage to forget someone despite my best efforts.
I also have omitted a couple of people of whom I'm unsure about whether they would want their stuff posted!

I chose the pieces that I happen to like the most at the moment ( HARD. TO. CHOOSE. ), but I urge you to visit their entire galleries if you can, as they're all amazing and you can't guage a person's works with only one picture or story!

I know it's not much, but thank you all so much for everything!!!

...Phew! I think that's everybody!

A merry and bright new decade to you all!

A big apology in advance if I am later than usual in replying: Wii-Chan has been sick with the flu and we are now two days behind in school work, so we will be cramming information and super-studying to catch up over the week and weekend. I'm also trying to aide in the search for a more... er... working car, as Delphi ( Delphinus ) is finally sounding her death cries. So, thanks as ever for your patience! ^_^

Tales of Turning Twenty-Three

Journal Entry: Sat Dec 18, 2010, 10:33 AM
Alliteration!
Yes, that's right, I'm REALLY an old man now. Let the heckling commence, Rita!

Hello again, everyone!

What a month! I bet it's been crazy for you guys, too! I've been scrubbing, cleaning, teaching, sewing and drawing in one big blur!

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR ALL THE BIRTHDAY WISHES!
I was amazingly gifted with a BEAUTIFUL drawing from my very sweet friend :icona-amamiya:, too, which just... Completely amazed me and was totally unexpected. And from my belov'd :iconbonnie-furry: and and... So many wonderful greetings from so many good friends... I have never felt so loved before! :heart: Thank you from the bottom of my blastia heart!

It was kind of just a workday and my camera died while I was briefly visiting the family, but I did snag a couple of MySpacian pictures with Wii when we got home.
We also had a school party day which involved making crafts and watching "The Polar Express"! There were double the students there as from last year. Good times!

Photobucket

Wii-Chan got a GIANT box of Hello Panda, too!

Photobucket

...And I stole it for a quick nom.

Photobucket

You can kinda see how messy my room is on laundry day! Eech.

I love how terrified poor Ein always looks... He's a really boisterous little fellow, but he tends to look worried or sad a lot in pictures. We have the same forehead wrinkles, as Eme/Kitty pointed out. I guess both owner and pet are neurotic SOBs, huh?

( And no, she wasn't beating him up, I promise-- they wrestle a lot, and they kept pouncing on each other while I was snapping pictures. He does his fair share of pouncing, too! )

This is why my sister does the photography. I'm leavin' it to her!

She also got me a new freaking tablet!!! I can't wait to start CGing again!!!!11 EEeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! Thank you so so so much, Meggo!

We then ended the day snuggled up on the couch playing Tales of Vesperia 'til Wii fell asleep slumped on my shoulder. :heart:


Then, a week or two ago, amidst all the insanity and running around in the freezing cold, we were fortunate enough to have a couple of fun times, too. We went with my mom and sister to see a screening of the Muppet Christmas Carol at a local theatre which has been playing older holiday films... Oh, it was magical!
I saw it on the big screen when I was about my daughter's age and I still remember the impression it left on me. We own an old VHS copy, but our VCR is slowly dying and half of the movies won't play any longer, so it was just a double whammy of goodness.
For us to be able to see it in a theatre was magnificent. We're Muppet nuts, and Wii and I LOVE Christmas Carol in particular ( Michael Caaaaiiiine <3 ). Wii might be the only six-year-old who gets excited when she sees Paul Williams's name in the credits.
We were singing along to all the songs that we've come to know by heart... And "Bless Us All" still makes me cry like a big ol' girl.
Wiccans can like Christmas movies, too, after all! ;3

We also got to go look at all the beautiful lights, which is one of my favourite things about this time of year. I love me some faerie lights, yes I do!

And old news now, but...
Great Googly Moogly!
I won a subscription!!! ( Thankyouthankyouthankyou, nice people! )I haven't had one o' thems in a looooong time. I forgot how much fun image enabling could be!
I've never won first place in anything!

Soooo, now that I can have images in here, all of the things I dreamed about doing have suddenly poofed away and I have no clue what the best use of this would be! D:
I have wanted to do a friend feature for ages, but have so many on here that I'm not sure how to fit them all in one journal ( and I'm afraid of accidentally leaving someone out! ).


We've been watching a ton of Quest For Camelot, which, in movie terms, amounts to us just watching it every night ( Pocahontas all over again, basically ). ^_^; I made myself hoarse doing Ruber's song VERY loudly ( we act out the scenes, so Wii was doing the minion dance around the living room... Ahhh, I love having someone to nerd out with! ).
If I wasn't so sure our neighbours were all crazy, dysfunctional, drunken jerks, I'd care that they probably think we're insane.

Wii drew these two pictures of her favourite characters:

Photobucket

The Griffin

Photobucket

...And Devon and Cornwall!

She's never all that big into the human characters. XD

Me: So, how would you like it if I made you a Kayley costume for the festival?

Wii: Okaaay... *long pause* ...But I just really wish I could go as the Griffin.

Me: ...That might be a little tricky.

Wii: I know, but he's just so cool! *moves hands around to emphasize this point*

Me:  q_q *prepares for hand-sewing fun fur and foam beaks*

Photobucket

It's one of those fandoms that makes me sad because I can never cosplay as my favourite character due to physical limits. Do you guys ( who cosplay ) have that from time to time? I could never pull off Ruber, but I would just LOVE to play him. I think his crazy expressions and voice would just be a blast to do at a con.
Gwaaahhh.

Okay, back to sewing and drawing cards! I love you guys so much!

Love and holiday waffles,

Hello again, everyone!

I just wanted to let you all know why I've been absent ( partially ) and why it may be a little while before any new chapters and the like are up.
As most of you know ( due to the frequency of my complaints ) my computer has been unhappy and slowly dying for some time now. Kitty was sweet enough to help me by totally revamping Bricky, but an unfortunate side effect was that we had to format my drive. I was unable to save a great portion of my files ( I had tried to burn data in the past, but the disk drive was going kaput, too ), though luckily I had e-mailed MOST of my Wiggins story to myself and backed up almost all of my writing. I've had this sort of thing happen too many times not to.

I am currently trying to reinstall old programs and locate all of my stuff.
In the meantime, I am still working on "Highly Unexpected", I'm just feeling discouraged because I did lose a lot of small parts that I had written and neglected to back up. Please do bear with me as I get things back up and running! And a big huge ol' thank you to those of you who have been reading it- that means the world to me! Me and my silly little things. :3


In other news, the Skies of Arcadia Abridged project is out! Actually, it's been out for a while now, but I haven't been able to catch up on messages here enough to feel okay about posting a journal. I feel like a jerk if I don't talk to everyone first, and THEN post.

( I play the crazy redhead with Pippi hair, for those who don't know who Aika is. ^_^; I'm credited as "CupilCopter" because my old account was shut down over AMVs. I didn't really get any warning to take them down, so... Yyyup. New account now!
MY GAWSH the other voices are great! I didn't get to hear them before recording, and it was so hard to wait. )

As a note, the director has warned that there are sound issues in this episode- there are usually kinks to work out at first, after all. My mic sounds incredibly loud to me, at least, so... um... Sorry for any broken ear drums!

I'm already working on some sewing and the like for the holidays, but as a warning: I will be absent a good deal during the holiday season. My daughter's birthday is also in December, so it's a pretty busy time. ^_^ Mainly because I am that one annoying family member who gives handmade gifts. EVILEVILEVIL! :iconruberplz:

I also wanted to just quickly say that I am constantly amazed RIGHT OUT MY SHORTS at the friends I've made on here. There is so much charity, kindness, support and love going on here that it would make the Gromble puke. When ever I need a reminder that the entire world isn't just an industrial-sized box of douches, this is where I come. That, and GivesMeHope, but that's another matter entirely.
In other words, you guys are amazing.

(( I keep finding old, OLD messages/comments in my inbox that just got buried somehow... Lovely, sweet comments I never replied to for what ever reason! D:  I hope no one ever thought I was ignoring them... Now I want to reply 'cause they look so sad, un-replied to, but some are so old I'd probably just confuse people. x_x  I know that a lot of people I see don't reply to EVERY message, but dang I feel so horrible! I feel like a big fat jerk for not even seeing some of them at all! Does that ever happen to you guys? ))

I love you guys, and I hope you have a delightful and safe November!

                Love and very cold waffles,
