yes, I'm still alive. (People were starting to wonder.) I didn't even have anything bad happen to me, apart from a hundred and seventy classtests that needed marking between February and now. (Still not quite done with those.)
I haven't had much time for art recently. I did have a very nice experience working with gaming magazine Mephisto
, who are publishing a new edition of "Himmel über Aachen", an adventure for "Engel" ("Angels"), for which I did two illustrations I'm not allowed to show yet. Look forward to them later this year.
Or buy the book. Or catch me on 18 April on the ROle-Playing Convention in Cologne at the Mephisto booth. (OMG, how long I've been waiting to say that!
The entire clubs thing is doing strange things - I *keep* getting requests for my "You never expect the Hogwarts inquisition" to go into "DracoXGinny" clubs. I don't get how this ship could ever even arise (apart from Draco being male and Ginny being female, which, knowing fandoms, seems rather a factor against that particular ship...) and it's beginning to tick me off. Why does every fanon always have to be about sex/romance (which is completely ludicrous in canon)? Argh.
Talking about fandoms, I'm still on Heroes, which you can see from my latest submission. I know Heroes fans are getting fewer and fewer, but if you're into this stuff, you'd make me one happy bunny if you'd venture over to my fanfiction account and leave me a comment or two there. :^^: [link]
I've become completely wrapped up in my fics about paramedics. The profession totally fascinates me, and I've been reading a lot of blogs and accounts by paramedics. Did you know that "Staying alive" is a good way to get into the right rhythm when you do CPR? Similarly helpful is "Another one bites the dust." Be careful not to sing this one in front of the relatives though, warns Peter Canning, Connecticut paramedic and author of several books on the matter...
It's the Easter holidays, so I hope I can also FINALLY get to the 1,111,111 kiriban for *DameOdessa
- I haven't forgotten!!
