We're preparing to bring Sfeer Theory, issue 1 to print!

Yuletide and The New Year

So from now on I will be posting from Moonsheen @ Dreamwidth. LJ's been good to me, but then it wasn't, so here we go.

A Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to everyone still checking this journal! I know I've been sparse this year. It's been a bit of a rollercoaster.

My grandmother died this year. She was the matriarch of my family in a big way, and so her absence has resulted in a lot of large changes. The old house I grew up in is being sold, and it's sad, but it's just what happens. I do miss her, but she was very unhappy and ill after my grandfather died.

It's odd that given the amount of sadness this year I can still say that on a whole I've been better then I've been in a long time. I've been able to stay in a stable, happy relationship with someone I really care about for the first time in...well, ever. I've left a job that wasn't getting me anywhere in favor of a job that, while it pays less, I find ultimately more satisfying and is closer to what I really want to do. I've eliminated a lot of the drains and stresses that made the year previous very difficult. My relationship with my family is still...complicated but it's improved, some, since I came out fully to them-- which was a pleasant surprise. And I've started to really work towards a dream that I've finally sort of admitted I have: i.e. to have a hard, published copy of something I wrote. To that end, I wrote not one book this year, but three, which, uh, needless to say has come as something of an eye-opener of what I'm capable of. To that end, I'm determined to do my best to see those books through and, if these ones don't cut it, I'll just write another, and another, until something takes.

It's oddly liberating to know I can do that. And that I have accomplished all these things. I don't find the idea so completely implausible now, and here's hoping I can really make it happen.

On a fandom front I've been a bit MIA. I participated in Yuletide this year, though.

I wrote Darkling I Listen, a Folklore fic. Folklore is a very obscure video game released for the PS3. It's kind of a flawed game with fun game play, beautiful designs, mediocre writing, and a confusingly kickass ending that made me really like it.

I received On The Way Back by FiKate, a very sweet story for Diana Wynne Jones' Hexwood. (One of my new favorite books) Mordion/Vierran, which has my heart. Schmoooop.

I also received Angels in the Aquarium, by That Person Who Did The Texts From Cephalopods Story also known as Volta_Arovet also known as That Person Who Put Up With Me While I Wrote A Book On Her Couch (and was only mildly exasperated by it). She wrote me Dane + Billy antics from China Mieville's Kraken and yes, tentacles were involved and no, amazingly they were not the sexy kind.

In conclusion, it's been a very good year.

A Monster in Paris

...oh heavens should I be that charmed by a giant dancing flea. When is this movie hitting the States, again?

Just as a heads up to my f-list, a couple of my awesome dudes, meltedpeep & odie have a very awesome cat. Sadly, this very awesome cat is also very, very sick. They've opened up cheap commissions to help offset the vet costs. So if you want some art by some good artists AND help out a kitty? Go check it out.

[Otakon] ESCA-BRO-NE

So, Otakon!

Otakon was a great deal of fun this year. It was hideously hot, and getting down there and back is usually a bit of an adventure with buses, and I had a bit of personal screaming latin chorus moments in my various attempts at costuming, but it's a con I'm always willing to accept some difficulties for because I've got a great group of people to meet there. spacetart, justbolts, and dotiscute, I am talking to you! It was great to see all of you. Wish I could do it more than once a year! It was good to see vikki as well! ...because you know, I never see vikki. Or lacunarity. Gosh. She NEVER drops by.

(also yoiyami! pengiesama! I'm really sorry I didn't get to see more of you guys!)

Anyway cosplay of this year was a very dignified and solemn affair.

By which we mean ESCA (bum bum) FLOWNE. Which was excellent. We were very old school, so a lot of those con youngsters didn't recognize us, but the people who did were SO EXCITED to see it. I'm pretty sure we were the only Escaflowne group at con. (also apparently chanting the Escaflowne theme is a good way to make people do a double take)

Anyway for PICS OR GTFO click here to see the really awesome antics captured by justbolts and her bitchin' camera. She was also our equally bitchin' David Bowie Jareth the Goblin King Folken. (it was so great to have you back!)

And here for the really rad photoshoot we did with lionboogy.

There's more, but they are floating about in other people's cameras (and Facebook galleries). This marks the first con where I made most of my own costume with minimal handholding (okay there was totally some hand holding, and tears. tears of blood. thank you my very understanding roommate and also my understanding girlfriend) from my very talented and very patient friends. MUUN HAS GAINED +1 IN SEWING. MUUN HAS ACQUIRED: A SCHOOLGIRL UNIFORM.

...guys I'm ten years older than this character. But it's okay. Otakon is sort of the con where I get to be an adult but also nerdy with my other friends who are also adult and nerdy. We sit and enjoy our love of dressing up/telling lies about cartoon characters and giant robots and the what not while also trading work stories and eating at restaurants we can all afford now. Which is exactly how I like my cons to be. So all and all, it was good times. And thank you everyone for sharing it with me.

[fic][original] And Flowers Grow In Spring

Issue #28 of Imaginary Beasts has just gone live!

Considering I know most of the authors in this issue, I can safely say it's a really good one. I wrote And Flowers Grow In Spring, a short story about life, death, greek mythology, and some kid who really hates college. Apologies in advance for the first person.
