Theology and research and writingYou guys know what I enjoy? Theology. Like, all the theology in the effing world, especially polytheism. That's my favorite kind. It's no secret I have an affinity for the gods of Olympus, but in revamping Malach's history (which I'm still in the process of transfering from this account), I'm looking at every fuckin' religion I can: Norse mythology, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism, Haitian Vodou, Ancient Egypt, Mayan and Incan stuff--ALL the things. And it's fantastic. I'm learning so much!
See, what I'm trying to do is figure out a way in which all these varying theories and such can mesh or overlap. You might be surprised to know that there is a TON of overlap between religions you wouldn't expect. For instance, Norse mythology and Christianity and Hinduism all have a "great flood." Pretty much every religion has a pair of "divine twins," obviously everyone has an Earth god/ess. Hinduism's Kamadeva and Olympus's Eros have an awful lot in common (although Kamadeva's bowstring is made out of
Follow-upOkay, babs, so it looks like I'm going to be moving all my original stuff over to a new account for like, real life professional shiz. Don't worry, all my fanfics and whatnot will stay here, and if you're one of the few who are interested in my original stuff, you can note me and ask for the new name.
Professional EndeavorsWho's writing a comic script? This chick. Oh yes, it's a real thing. You may or may not recall me talking about it a while back, but I still firmly believe that Malach needs more media to represent her, sooo I'm writing a comic for her! I've been researching a few different formats, but I figure each employer will probably want it a little different, so I'm going with Dark Horse's model for now. They published Neil Gaiman's Sandman series, and I've heard good things about them from lots of people, so they would be my first choice to work with (haha assuming I get a choice at all). But of course, I'll be submitting the thing(s) like crazy to everyone who will take it. >.>
...I'm also considering making a professional dA account? I made a new tumblr specifically for actual serious grown-up writing bizz, so maybe I'll do the same here. Keep all my fanfics and such here and just move my original work there. I will keep you guys posted on that.
*heavy sigh*Do you babs know of any good artists who are taking commissions? Like...big ones? >_> It's really difficult sorting through al the various commission-related journals looking for what I want, so if you guys have any recommendations, they would be highly appreciated. -_-

Won't look down, won't open my eyes

Ahem.I may or may not have had a dream last night that this dating sim had somehow become just...lesbians, but with a bunch of my existing female characters--like Malach and rock-star-Sable, some magical girls, this dragon-rider princess I made recently, etc. (Except in the dream, I was just playing the game, not making it.)
it was weird. But like...it was also REALLY cool. *rolls around*
Opinions, please! For a new projectI am endeavoring to write a feminist dating sim. I’ve been playing a few of them lately, and I’m sooo tired of their tropey sexist bullshit. I like the idea of a dating sim; it’s cute, and it has potential. Which is why it’s that much sadder that they’re all EXACTLY THE SAME.
Some features I intend to include:
1) different gender options for the protagonist
2) male and female love interests of varying orientations (who are not all straight white(?) skinny pretty boys)
3) more choices—that is, more opportunity to affect the storyline
4) related to number 3, choices to argue with or get pissed off at your love interest if he/she says something that offends you
Some features I intend to completely exclude:
1) cliché anime boy tropes, i.e., the naughty flirty one, the douchebag tsundere, the scary-looking one who’s actually really nice, the childhood friend, etc.
2) “you can’t/shouldn’t do such-and-such, since yo
How to ruin your life:1) Go to YouTube and watch both Don't Hug Me I'm Scared videos
2) Ponder the meaning of life for a bit
3) Go to tumblr and browse the #padlock tag
4) Realize what exactly it is you're shipping and how unreasonably into it you are
Repeat steps 2 through 5 as needed
*cough*To the people who watched me expecting more JackRabbit: I'm afraid you're going to be disappointed. The fics I have up here were written like, a year or more ago, and I honestly have absolutely no plans for writing that couple again. >_> I mean, there's a chance you'll see stuff involving Jack--but it'll probably be Black Ice. There's a chance you'll see Bunny, too--but most likely in relation to Cupid.
The closest thing you might see is my band AU, in which 1) everybody's genderbent, and 2) it's actually a BunnyxPitchxJack ot3 thing.
So, um. I just thought I should let you guys know. Not that I don't appreciate you being here! I just know a lot of you watched me after favoriting all of my JackRabbit stuff, so I wanted to go ahead and be clear.

"Love at First Song" by hopeburnsblue
Suggester says: "This piece is so
lovely. Such a heartfelt, vivid and romantic
poem I really can't get enough of."
Gay LoveAnthology Theme: I recently had a long, painful conversation with a new friend from work. We'll call him Paul. Paul is 24 and married less than a year ago. His husband, we'll call him Pat, recently admitted that he's been cheating on Paul. I hugged Paul while he cried and cheered him on when he raged, and offered my couch if he wanted somewhere to crash - and was incredibly proud when he said, "hell no. The cheating bastard can find a street corner for all I care."
Love is heartbreak, sometimes. And it's pain. And it's kicking a sorry excuse for a partner to the curb. And that's true no matter who you are or who you love.
So, inspired by Paul and his amazing confidence in who he is and what he deserves, this mini-anthology is focused on gay love. I tried to find a bit of it from every angle. I hope you'll enjoy these personal, powerful pieces of literature. I sure did.
You know you’re in love when you sound li

ReflectionsVal's pursuit led him to the foul beast's domain. The hollowed-out cavern reeked of blood and rancid meat. The dim light he had seen as he charged through the tunnel after the monster could now be identified: torches. Rows of mysteriously lit torches lined the walls of the huge cave. At its center was a substantially large labyrinth of mirrors.
He spotted the beast entering.
He spun his silver broadsword in his hand and hurried in behind it.
His garb was a simple blue and white crusader's leather with thick armored pads and reinforcing steel studs. Lightweight and flexible, but quite effective defense against blunt blows and – in a pinch – the slashing claws of the unholy spawn of the earth. All monster-hunters wore a similar variety in Val's experience. It would serve him well in these close quarters of the mirrored maze.
Right, left, forward, left, right he turned, always catching a glimpse of the beast's tail as he wove his way through the corridors. Every so often he sp
