Dwalin WIP by Technoelfie
Dwalin WIP
Work in progress of Dwalin, one of the dwarves from The Hobbit and a serious badass. I would have attempted Thorin because that's where my heart lies but my skill is so unequal to that it's not even funny, so Dwalin it is. I'd forgotten how effing hard hair was. And skin. And, well, everything else.

Hello everybody,

long time no see. I'm back online, sort of. My free time is still quite limited -- I have a kid now, a PhD that I need to finally finish this year and after that a bit of a career change to organize, but I'm back. 

I've stopped doing creative work for several years. At one point, I decided that if it doesn't make money I can't really justify spending time on it, but I've wised up recently. Some things just need to be done to feed the soul, for no other reason other than if you don't do them, you're just half a person. I was like that for a while, doing only reasonable grown-up things, and I've shriveled up inside because of it. Well, no more. 

I've picked up writing again, to start with. I've updated Hope is the Thing with Feathers (FFN/Dokuga) yesterday. I hope to finish it soon, the last chapter is a remix of Serenade, expanded and adjusted to fit the context of Hope. it was that snippet that jump-started Hope in the first place, so I like that it comes full circle nicely at the end.

My current passion lies in the Hobbit fandom. I've fallen hard for Thorin Oakenshield, King under the Mountain and sulky special snowflake. It's the very first time that I find myself smitten with a character played by a real, live actor, so that's a bit disconcerting for me. Given my tastes so far, I'd have thought I would be lusting after Thranduil, who couldn't be more like my Sesshoumaru head canon if he tried, but no dice. Thorin it is. I'm so smitten, in fact, that I'm writing 2nd person fanfic about him, which I never thought I would in a million years. I didn't even know that was a thing until I took a look at tumblr for the Thorin gifs and got sucked in.

I don't paint or draw right now. I thought I never will again, but I'm already feeling a faint impulse to doodle, so who knows? I do enjoy doing watercolors with my toddler. One deterrent is the fact that I hate everything I've ever drawn/painted, except for Death of a Sun God, which is the one picture where I actually used reference (forced my hubby to hang half-off the sofa and shone a lamp into his face). I avoid looking at my gallery because I cringe so hard. It's not quite the same with my writing, but close.

But it's a journey, right? 

So, here are my current online haunts if anyone of you is interested in connecting:

MY TUMBLR
ME AT AO3
ME AT FFN

I advise everyone to read this Doujinshi ^_^ I am sure that she all interested ))

 

“Memories”

 

SesshoumaruxYume - InuYasha

 

reenigrl.deviantart.com/art/Me…

 

Two long lost friends seperated by war but reunited by her death. After many long years Yume has lost all memory of her child hood freind . As Yume is about to fall into the world of Eternal darkness she is rescued by a handsome demon with long silver hair and the mark of a crescent moon on his forehead. This man seems so familiar to her but at the same time a stranger. Will Yume ever find out who this handsome man is that saved her from death? Or will a new love bloom that will recover her hidden memories of a long lost past.

sent an angel to watch over you last night but it came back.
I asked “why?”
The angel said “angels don't watch over angels.”
Twenty angels are IN your world. Ten of them are sleeping, nine are playing, one is reading this message.
Send this to ten friends including me. I guess if I don't get it back I'm not one of them. As soon as you get five replies, someone you love will quietly surprise you.
Please read, not joking. God has seen you struggling with something. God says its over. A blessing is coming your way.
If you believe in God send this message on. Please don't ignore it. You are being tested. God is going to fix two things BIG tonight in your favor. DROP Everything and pass it on. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. Don't break this chain.
Send to 14 friends in 10 minutes. It's not that hard

Hi, I just wanted to know if you plan on continuing Serendipity. It is amazing and the only good Kagome and Kakashi fanfiction I've ever read. You are an amazing writer and I do really hope you haven't given up on it.
