Hiatus Tentatively Over

Journal Entry: Fri Jan 15, 2016, 8:35 AM
Gallery l Watch Me l Note Me l FF.net l tumblr l AO3 l AFF.net

Alrighty! As anyone who still pays any attention to this page will have noticed, new stuff is showing up! :D

After two years (!) of nothing save half a dozen status updates to assure everyone I was still alive, I'm actually getting back into uploading actual, like, art things. It's amazing.

In my last Journal was the announcement that I was moving. That went through, I now live in a new place, but unfortunately there were some hiccups. Where I am right now was meant to be a temporary place until another, more permanent home was found. This was meant to be a kind of stepping stone to find a place in the area that we wanted.

Well, that didn't happen. The assistance we were meant to get was abruptly yanked out from underneath us and we've been staying at the temp place ever since. That plus another fairly large and unexpected life change that took place about a year ago was what kinda knocked me for a major loop and sabotaged my creativity, and it's been doing a good job of keeping it down as well.

I'd like to say that after two years I'm finally finding me feet again and there are no worries I'll suddenly disappear again, but there's more.

I am working hard on keeping myself creatively active - it's kind of a necessity for my sanity. I've organized how I keep track of my projects a little better and set myself some regular dates for deadlines on certain things. Hopefully this will help to keep myself from stacking up too many things at once and losing all motivation in doing anything out of despair. I have a couple of new kinds of things I'm working on - some uploads will be popping up soon - and to everyone who has been waiting for the return of Star Trek Teenies, progress is being made there as well. We're still not at the point of uploading strips even within a month (or two, depending on how slow I continue to go) but behind the scenes progress is still being made. I'll be uploading a mini STT update soon after I post this Journal as proof. :)

On the downside of all this is some more life-upsetting things along the lines of what swept my legs out from under me last time.

The temp home is indeed temp, and as of June/July we will no longer be able to live here. And unlike the last move, I have no idea of where I will end up living after I get kicked from my current home. I live in fairly constant fear of ending up homeless (it's a paranoia that's been there since I was tiny) and unless I can find a place that I can afford by the middle of the year, that's where my mind keeps taking me as a likely outcome. Fun times. And on top of this, if it wasn't enough, there are some major family related relationship changes going on as well. One in particular that I've been trying to brace myself for for more than a year is coming close to a head, and it's freaking me out a little bit.
(Actually if I'm honest it's scaring the crap out of me. I don't do well with confrontation and I can't see what's going to happen going down any other way. Every simulation I play out in my mind is either confrontation or backing down to any accusations thrown my way, which won't solve anything.)

Hm. That got a little more personal than I was intending. Ah well.

TL : DR

I'm back and uploading stuff!
Star Trek Teenies might be making a comeback in a couple of months!
But life shit is still going down so who knows how long it will last!
Root for me!

Finding the time to work on new props / characters for the Star Trek Teenies is turning into something of a nightmare. But we'll get there! The teenies shall return! <3
More than halfway through the scripts I need to have a year long buffer for STT. Planning on getting supplies for new sets today. We move forward!
Writing up a bunch of Star Trek Teenies scripts and planning out new props. Some big things are on the way for our tiny heroes!
After a long hibernation, attempting to shake off the snow and dust to get things going again. :3

Curious, what is it you come here for?

Raven Ehtar: I have drawn a dedication to one of your older FanFiction works, "What's My Name?". I hope you like it ^^' I tried my best... I consider WMN to be one of my favorite pieces of literature ever!

There's some bad reflection on the graphite, hope you don't mind ^^'

Thank you for granting us the masterpiece that is "What's My Name?"!

Oh, wow, really? :omfg:
I think this is the first art that WMN? has inspired! (That I've heard of, anyway.)

I'm really touched, m'dear, thank you. WMN? was such a huge part of my life while I was writing it, I'm happy to see that it's touched others as well. :heart:

Of course! I'm actually surprised that you don't have much fans ;-; I think it's because people generally don't know who B is. *Sigh*

This story was actually the first FanFiction I ever dared to show my father, who is a moderate anime fan. He is now also a fan of you because of the "wondrous imagery", quote my dad. Ever since reading your story, I have to admit, my life changed. Don't doubt yourself; this story influences others more than you'd think. I began to appreciate everything I have even more, and discover the obscure beauty in wordplay, imagery, and symbolism. I never realized that you can set up such a life-like situation, and make me feel like I was watching an anime, not reading literature, with just words. ;0;

I just reread it recently again. This story also completely changed my take on B's younger life. After reading it, I began abandoning calling B "BB" or "Beyond Birthday", instead prefering "B" or just "Beyond". He began appearing more whole, more real. Every time I draw art of him (which I do all the time), I feel liked that I was obligued to show a little of what he was. For my recent B painting, for example, I gave him a faint smile, and large, rather innocent eyes that did not smile with the lips. Seriously, this story changed EVERYTHING.

... Ookie, that was a long rant XD I'm just soooo honored that senpai has noticed me.

Have a good day!

I'm sorry for taking a while to get around to replying, but I was at a bit of a loss for words.

I'm happy and a little stunned that something that I wrote for fun could have such a profound effect on someone. Humbled would be the best word, I suppose. I really don't know what to say other than thank you. Thank you for reading, and thank you for reaching out to tell me what you thought, how it affected you. It may sound a little silly, but it changes me to know how my readers feel. It makes me strive to be better and more worthy. :)

Thank you, m'dear, and I look forward to seeing more wonderful art from you. You have talent, and seem to be coming to grips with digital pretty quickly!
