I cannot go back to Elsweyr
I cannot go back to Elsweyr
For my home now it is not.
Like the shifting sands where I was born,
The memories run hot.
I cannot go back to Elsweyr
Even though it once was home,
For if I go to Elsweyr
I will only be alone.
There is emptiness in Elsweyr
Where there once were loving hands.
Mother, Father, if you hear me now...
I hope you found warm sands.

I am taking deep breaths
I am taking deep breaths.
I drink a cup of coffee in the afternoon
because my grandmother did, and sometimes it helps.
I am taking deep breaths,
and trying to move forward
one step at a time
to carve a niche for myself
though it seems like possibly the worst time to try.
I am taking deep breaths,
and trying to hold my heart in one piece
because the world has become a scary place
and holding back will not make it less so.
I am taking deep breaths.
One foot in front of the other.
I do not know the future.
I only know the next step.

Everything You Are
Halvden shifted restlessly in the den, anger seeping into his dreams of late. The Widow Queen had wasted no time in taking her islands back, and though he had sworn to bow to Thyra, he seethed at the thought that she went along with the Vanir queen's wishes so easily. To add insult to injury, though Kenna had taken him back, had permitted him in their shared den, she had forbidden him from sleeping in the same nest, instead forcing him to the far corner.
Kenna's anger baffled and unsettled him. His actions had been a means to an end. Could she not see that? Glory, honor, and power for him meant that it would pass to their kit as well.
But all that was shattered now, and in his dreams shrieking, witless things clawed at him while voices in the dark echoed accusations that it was all his doing. The mocked him, infuriated him. So it had gone since he'd returned to answer for his crimes. The dream-beasts closed in and, as always, he expected the dream to end with Caj defeating him, shaming

I will be hitting up AnthrOhio here in a couple weeks if anyone else is going. Planning to be there Friday only again this year, because some things happened that prevented me from doing pre-reg and hitting up the whole weekend. Maybe next year.

Since the panels I most want to see are on Friday, this means my plan of bringing my SO as a handler won't work, so time in my mask will be severely limited. Between panels I normally nerd out in the Artist Alley or browse the Dealer's Den.

Also camera batteries are still up for grabs:  Free* camera batteriesI have like 4 SLR batteries I got not realizing they weren't quite the right size for my camera. As I got them as a freebie thanks to coupon codes, they are free to a good home, provided you pay the shipping (which probably won't be much if you're in the US). So if your camera takes these and you want them, please let me know:
 (no need for shipping if you're going to the con, just tell me ahead of time and I'll bring them to give you)

By the way, if anyone going to AnthrOhio wants to make me an offer on this dream catcher:  Dark vs Light Dreamcatcher by Lyrak

It's the one I have for sale that would be the biggest pain in the arse to ship so I'd love to be able to just deliver it the heck in person. Also my cat keeps eyeballing it like he wants to attack it and I need to get it off my wall for its own safety. LOL
Finding ways to tease Garnet away from my sister's universe at last, and hopefully pull her into a better character, which will lend itself to better writing. We'll see where this exploration goes.
I have another thing to upload but I'm trying to get more active again and my body is complaining at me so I can't see straight right now. I want to be able to get the process shots up on my blog first so I can link to that from the main file. Bear with me. x.x;
May the 4th be with you.

I have some appointments today but I'm wearing my glitter for Carrie anyway.
Knee update: Muscles are back but now the tendon is messed up and I get to wait for THAT to heal. Also I seem to be forgetting what a normal night's sleep is because without being able to get out and walk I'm not burning nearly enough energy and my brain is punishing me for it.

In the meantime my SO has ordered some more shelf-ish things for organizing so hopefully we can clear up some of the stuff surrounding my scanning station so I can actually use it again (the kitchen is slowly taking over the house). Mostly I need my chair back so I can sit while I scan because knee. And there is kitchen stuff in my chair. There is kitchen stuff everywhere. This is what happens when you live with someone who actually COOKS but you have no cabinet space.

If you want to make me happy, give me honest praise, chocolate, money, expensive cars, a million dollars... =P OK I doubt anybody's going to give me those last two. But I can try, right?

Yes, I am this much of a dork.

But seriously, I do adore comments. Don't require them (I am notorious for the fave-and-run myself, I realize not everyone can think of something to say), but I do love them. :)

Holy crap I got an art Tumblr:

Also an Instagram which I forget about a lot but sometimes post sketches on:…

Hi there! I've been searching out fellow enthusiasts of W&B dolls, as I am actually looking to sell one, and want it to go to a good home!…
Not sure if you're in the market, but just thought I'd share :) :heart:

Augh he is a cutie. I've spent more than I would like recently, though, so unfortunately not looking right now. Hope you find him a good home!
Hawock Featured By Owner Mar 6, 2017
Hey no problem! He's a sweetie, so I just wanted to share ^_^
I'm open to take payment plans also, if you ever want to take a look again :D
