Hey all!

I really have been away for a while and I'm sorry for that. I've been engrossed by the PJO/HoO (Percy Jackson and the Olymians / Heroes of Olympus) fandom and they're all on tumblr. - If ever you're looking for me, you can find me there as mab-speaks. I also run a ship blog for the fandom's ultimate bromance to romance duo - jercyjuice and I've taken up Arting in an effort to grow my skills and have a creative outlet when the words just aren't coming. My art blog is mabscribbles.

I've been writing up a storm the past several months. I counted my words made so far in that fandom starting 7 months ago and it's: 190,365 ... so yeah, a lot. I've also made a few podfics and started a PJO writer/artist 18+ chat room. It's keeping me very busy.

In the world of HP, the third annual HP Horror Fest just posted reveals at [livejournal.com profile] hp_darkarts and it was a blast to mod. I made art for it. Disturbing art. I kept with my tradition of torturing poor Teddy Lupin. (I only torture my favorite characters)

I'll stick it under a spoiler tag if you'd rather not see. TW: blood, self harm.

Summary: As a Metamorphmagus, Teddy Lupin has always struggled with what he "actually" looks like. In a moment of insanity he decides to find out for himself.

See it on Ao3

It was my first attempt ever at using a tablet to color - and my tablet is obsolete. Still, I think it effectively got the horror message I was going for across. *wry smile*

In other news related to art, there's a new daily drawing community on dreamwidth started by a local writing buddy of mine and I'm having fun participating and drawing for the prompts. All doodles are PG-13 and under and can be from any fandom. There's no limit to how often or infrequent members participate either.

So check it out if you're interested. I see a lot of improvement in my ability in just the past month from drawing something every day.



Here was my doodle for today:

This is Nico di Angelo, son of Hades, just waking up. He's normally pretty brooding and not a morning person. Just figures that the only clean mug he can find was left by Will Solace, son of Apollo. Maybe after he's had his morning coffee, Nico will be in more of a sunshine mood. :P

I've booked my tickets for my summer fangirl trip to London! I'll be staying with [livejournal.com profile] writcraft and have plans to meet up with some other UK-rs too! Can't wait. I'll be flying out on 30 July and coming home on 7 August.

All right. I think that's enough for an update right now. I have to run my daughter's friend home in a sec. I miss you f-list, and I promise I'm not going to be away forever. I'm just following where my muse is leading and I trust that eventually it will return me to HP. Hogwarts will always be home. XD

Yay Mab! LOL, I feel like I've lucked out, since I get to see you on tumblr and in the chat all the time. :)

That's so exciting about your UK trip, though! So much fun meeting fandom people. :D

I'm so happy I lucked out to find a couple of f-list kindred spirits willing to jump off the fandom cliff with me. :P It's totally safe though, we've got bungees.

Yeah. I'm way stoked about this trip. It'll be my first time outside of the country. XD

Also, thanks for the drawing comm link! looks cool :)
I tried daily drawing awhile ago but I didn't stick with it... I'll have a look at this comm and maybe give it another go :)

That would be super cool! It's totally all levels welcome too. And, there's no minimum participation requirements. So nothing like signing up and feeling like failing when you don't manage to do it every day.

Glad you have not given up on us forever. Enjoy your 2nd fandom, 3rd or whatever it is. :)

d'aww. I could never really LEAVE HP. It's more like I'm on sabbatical. Just sampling some other things for a year or so.

I'd count this as my second fandom. The only other time another fandom drew me away from HP was SPN and 3 months later, season five ended and my favorite character died.

I dunno. I just love book fandoms a million times more than television ones. I didn't think another series would ever inspire me like HP did. Still, HP is in my blood. I'll be back.

*hugs you*

HIIII Omg how nice to have a new fandom! And I wish I could go on Tumblr as frequent as I would like, but limited internet connection made me unable to do it. ):

And that sketch is looking dang good! <3

Awww. That bites about your internet connection. But it may be a blessing in disguise. Tumblr has managed to suck me dry of several hours without me realizing it. :P

Thanks for the encouragement on my sketch. I am beginning to be able to see where the flaws are when I'm drawing now, and it's been fun to try and figure out how to work around it, to learn perspective, anatomy, etc... I figure it's rare for a person to start out and just get it right, so I try not to judge myself too harshly and just do it daily, then look back at the beginning and see that improvement is happening. :P

Yeah, but hopefully I will get unlimited connection soon and I can kick up my Tumblr gear again. :) And I know right! Tumblr and its ability to make time go.

That's awesome! It's the best way to see your own artwork: acknowledge the good and the bad, and build it to be better. And that it's never gonna turn out /always/ great even when you get the hang of it. It's also the best feeling when you notice that you're improving as well. GO MAB!! <3

ehhhh.. not quite back back as of yet. More like just popping in to say hi and I'm still alive, kicking, and thinking fondly of my lj friends. ^.^

It's so nice to see you post! I completely understand about the getting caught up in Tumblr syndrome as a new fandom takes over for quite a bit; it happened to me with hockey for a while.

And that's a shitload of words. I'm jealous of all the time you have.

lol. Yeah. Tumblr though, I do try to limit myself to only going on a couple of times a day, just to answer my asks, reblog a few things or post something and I "attempt" to not get too caught up talking.

As far as time though... I really don't have much time at all. Most of the time I spend on creative works is stolen from real life... Like, I currently have a mount doom of laundry, and until yesterday, hadn't really given my house the maintenance clean it needs.

- yesterday I took a look around and NOTICED. Oh shit.. maybe the clutteredness of my brain is related to the clutteredness of my habitat? *clean frenzy*

Here's hoping the new organization and cleanliness translates into shaking out the rest of my projects in progress. :P

I haven't truly been on tumblr in a while. I do check my favorite fic-writing tumbrs each day in case there's a new snippet that's been posted :)

So good to hear from you!

That sketch is totally adorable (as opposed to your Teddy piece which was so awesomely terrifying!!). And congrats on all the word-making! <3 <3
