Well, I'd better get this up before I forget! Alrighty, folks, I've been packing since I got home and have just been to Wal-Mart to pick up more supplies (moisterizer, umbrella (both of which I've needed for a while), and bug dope). I've got $80 to spend, with at least maybe $42 on meals if I spend $7 on each of the 6 meals we gotta pay for. I'm also gotta pack a brekky and a lunch for the road tomorrow, since I've gotta be there at 4:15 A.M.. I'll get to sleep on the bus, tho, thankfully. I'm bringing along with quite a few things--writing materials, Brisingr (which I haven't read since Winter Break, :shakefist: college apps!), and some drawing stuff, to name a few. I'm gonna be printing off some ref tonight and hopefully--HOPEFULLY--get some sketching done on the bus (making use of some anti-carsick patches I'm gonna use ^_^). This includes the next page of Angry Kitty (but no coloring; I'm not risking my Prismas)!

Now, as I think I said before, I'm gonna be going off to San Antonio, Texas. We're going to be performing twice on Monday (March 9). First is at 11 AM at the Alamo, and the second is at 3:30 PM at the Mexican Marketplace. If anyone is going to be downtown in San Antonio this day, I HEARTILY encourage you to come and watch us! If you want to know who I am, point your eyes towards the flutes and look for the big brown bush (with a rat tail braid) :). (I understand if you aren't ^^; ) If possible on both our counts, feel free to come up to me afterwards and talk to me. Just tell me who you are online, first :XD:...I hope I didn't just do something that placed me into a big, scary adventure...^^;

Well, anyway, I think that's all the important stuff. Thank you, wish us luck, and I'll be back on Friday ^_^ See ya!!

See last journal mostly.
-Rings of Dualty: All I've gotta do is figure out the boss and we are SET!! Folks, I've said it before, I'll say it again: NEVER EVER EVER make a dungeon based off of a real type of establishment and attempt to have it work for both purposes!

Sorry, folks, but life's been eating me alive (har-de-har-har). I've had to contend with auditioning for Lawrence (which, imho, coulda gone better *gulp*), homework, Solo & Ensemble (I GOT A *1 ON MY SOLO!! :yay: ), Dad getting a new router (though I'm still gonna have to wait whenever the microwave's on, I think >X( ), and other things (read: renting Okami (for two five-dayers and a couple days late the second time), Trauma Center: Second Opinion, and de Blob, since I recently began a membership at Family Video, thus getting 30 days half-price rentals). Not only that, but I've also got other things to do in the upcoming weeks.
First off is the huge week Ima have this week. Every day sans Wednesday after school, I'm rehersing with Drama Club for our play, Charlotte's Web. Guess who's Templeton? :D :D :D I was--still am--elated when I found out that not only do I (at last!) get a part in a theatre event at school, but I get the part I wanted!! Also, I'm gonna be going to some State Honor Band thing on the 4th, which means I gotta practice the music like HELL tomorrow and Tuesday. And, finally, the BIG news: I'm gonna be heading off to San Antonio on the Band Trip starting at 4:15 a.m. Central time this Friday! ^_^ I'll update with further details before I leave, but I'm excited. I'm in debt that's not something to sniff at to my father, so I'd better be going, and I know I'm gonna have a good time (especially since, according to the Forecast Channel on my Wii, it's gonna be over 70ºF on Friday and it's still gonna be at or below the 30s here). Now, let's see what horrible wrench karma's got in store...It might be starting to show already. I've been sick for the past couple of weeks with a cold that's glutted my right ear with gunk. And now, just as I'm getting better from that cold, I think I've contracted at least a minor stomach virus. It had BETTER STAY minor, or I'm going to be in the dictionary for "pissed off".

In other, more recent news, I'm gonna be sending my Wii in to get repairs. A bit after renting de Blob, it started having issues turning on. I'll try to do something that the hotline said before I talked to a help desk woman and set up a tentative repair, but it's prolly in need of assistance anyway. Gonna cost me a FURTHER $85 (which includes $10 S&H), but, dammit, it's gonna be worth it if I can't find the problem beforehand. But now I wonder about my DS (Phat), which I also wanna send in someday for a touch screen that occasionally double-taps...Oh, well. I guess that's all for now! See ya!!

OH! Almost forgot! Mel got a laptop for Valentine's Day, meaning I CAN FINALLY GET THE COMPUTER A LOT AGAIN!! I'll be forced to wear headphones, though, since she's got ears like a bat when she's sitting in the dining room and she hates me making any noise at all, which also includes voice chat (aka TALKING ON THE PHONE...)>_>#. But the point is that I'll be on the computer more, I hope. This'll be great for both my social and school life; my AP Psych class uses a website a lot. So, NOW, I'm off. See ya!!

-EBA Fic: It's down to the wire, now: Time for the final songs! Well, when I write them out. Still got some stuff to figgure out, but I'm excited that it's almost finished!!

-KH: PoT: Finished the first Toy Story bit, starting on...the next one.
-" " CO: After an e-mail from one of my readers (which totally surprised me and I think made my day), I promised to get to work on this one ASAP. And, lo and behold, that same Sunday morning after church, I came up with the plot for the Melee Arena part coming up. Got some started, but gotta rewrite/edit because I forgot about Tracey ^^;
-Angry Kitty: Gotta start on chapter four; started page 4 ages ago, and am going to try to transfer a panel from my sketch to the paper, since I can't quite get Mars to stop reminding me of Max from one of the stages in EBA.
-WG: Starting to color the Hard Dragon pic I DS Lightdesked in the style I learned from Drawing I and am working on the Plant Talents list still. Have all of Part 5 ready for updating, but I'm LAZEH.

...Well, however that word is spelled. Whatever. XD; Anyway, Merry Late Christmas to all you who celebrate it, and happy winter solstice to anyone else, and...that Jewish holiday I don't dare try to spell since I know I can't ^^; and what have you. So, referring to the first part of this, here's my loot from Christmas and my birthday (hide your women and chillun's, 'cuz FT's officially an adult!! :cries: ) :

***GOT ITEM!!***
Games
- Guitar Hero III - Wii (X-mas) (I've beaten Normal Career, not 5* yet. ALMOST got a FC on When You Were Young today, though!! Missed ONE note!! >X• )
- Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood - DS (B-day) (I'm kinda mixed on it so far. Just got Shads, game could be a little bit better (for one, the music. If I'm in Green Hill Zone, I should get GHZ's song, right? Well, at least it was a good song for a "starting out" theme.). Eggman runs, I'm terribly sorry to say this, but he runs like a fruit ^^; I LOVE how well-done the Codex is in terms of how much from previous games they've mentioned.)

Books
- Brisingr - Christopher Paolini (X-mas) (AT LAAAAAAAST!!! Left off last night at the start of "Unexpected Guests" or whatever that chapter's called. The pace is as slow and steady as ever, which is good in some ways (read: Chris's signiture throw-something-small-in-that-will-actually-have-some-significance-later-on attack and the entirety of "Shadows of the Past"--character/relationship development).)
- The Fire Eternal - Chris d'Lacey (B-day) (Yes, two Chris's! X3) (Haven't read it yet--I got Brisingr before this one. But I can't wait!! :excited: )

Other
- 4 G2 Mini Pilot pens (red, blue, green, black) (when you call THIS the best stocking stuffer ever, you know you're a completely hopeless dork)
- Can of Silly String (stocking stuffer)
- 2 eggs Silly Putty (Normal red, Bright light blue (you'll understand why it's "bright" when you see the putty itself O.O), stocking stuffer standby)
- Blinking Rudolph-style nose (stocking stuffer) (I don't know, don't ask, but it's actually pretty cute ^_^)
- Generic Rubik's cube (stocking stuffer) (this one has holo stickers instead of opaque ones, and it doesn't make that clicking sound when you twist it--a slightly unpleasant sliding sound, instead. Still cool)
- Notepad where I wrote down all my loot (stocking stuffer)
- 2 mini puzzle cubes (stocking stuffers) (they're those, like, 1.5"(cubed) cubes with impossible puzzles made of plastic bits and tiny ball bearings that rattle annoyingly and are addicting as hell--grown-ups, you know what I mean, right?)
- 2 "Glow mouth" (stocking stuffer) (those things that make people's mouths glow at parties and concerts and stuff)
- light-up spinner toy (stocking stuffer) (one of those wheels on two strings that you twirl around to twist up, then pull on the strings to watch the thing whiz. This one has little LED's! ^_^)
- Puzzle box (X-mas) (One of those clear plastic boxes with some money inside that you have to solve the maze to get out. It was really fun! Hard, but fun!)
- Mug, vanilla cocoa (X-mas) (Haven't used them yet. Tho I hate vanilla, I might wanna try that cocoa.)
- Matchbox music box (Jingle Bells verse) (X-mas) (From the Gammers (grandparents), cute little windup-free music box that plays the verse of Jingle bells when you take it out of the matchbox. It has a tiny panorama on it that animates while it plays, like any good music box should have. Adorable ^_^)
- Dirk (B-day) (Yeah, my godmother was studying (teaching?) in Scotland, so she got me a real dirk for my birthday. Sure, it's not a REAL good weapon, BUT IT'S A WEAPON!! :D:D:D)
- CD/FM Radio player w/ear buds that suck (B-day) (The reception's actually pretty nice. I asked for it since I got bored of listening to my normal CDs outside while picking up the yard for lawn mowing. Now, I can listen to 96.9 The Fox while working--songs that I dunno are coming on and often pretty good ones ^_^)
- GH boxer shorts w/guitar-shaped tin (B-day) (No, I kid you not. They're red with pictures of the black controller on them and the logo on the butt. ...Hey, this means I can go ahead and sew my boxers I made in middle school to the leggings I made from old flannels and have TWO pairs of pajama pants to work with! No more using safety pins!! ^_^ Still need to find a place to put the tin, though...)

So, yeah, that's my haul this year. VERY good year, in my opinion, VERY good. I'm very happy. Sure, I can't get DL content in GHIII, but it's got TTFATF and Knights of Cydonia--I'm a happy ferret :D And Chronicles ain't what I thought it'd be, but it's still good.

Anyway, though, in other news, I've got to buckle down this week and hurriedly finish my college applications. However, my mood tells it all. I'm...just not feeling it. But I'm gonna have to try. I've got a TON of stuff I need in by the 15th of next month, and I ain't got much time at all. Pray that I get it all done. This is, like, Early-set Senioritus--the most deadly kind that occurs BEFORE you're accepted to college!! Ooooh, maaaan...*shudders* I wish the Agents existed in real life, 'cuz I definitely need them about now TnT .

Welp, posted up three new writings on here and I'm going off to post up some new chapters in my fanfics (EBA fic and Zelda fic, iffen you're interested), then get to work on some compositions. Therefore, I've gotta get outta here! See ya!!

No, I'm NOT dead!! I'm just finally updating quick on the compy the night after our final performance of "Thoroughly Modern Millie", our high school musical this year. I was fortunate enough to be in the pit, and it was so worth it :D As well, earlier, I had to do the hell known as Show Band. The good news is that I had the best season I've ever experienced with the Fond du Lac Marching Cardinals this year. Not only that, but at the wrap-up party, during the caption awards, I WON SOMETHING!! "Best Attitude" and, since our drum major's printer wasn't cooperating with her, a $1 pen that Mel (stepmom) says has a tutu on it. I like it regardless. Yeah. So, after ages of long bus rides and a solid week of sitting in a pit and feeding on sour gummi worms, I'm finally back, able to do homework again |D; Not for long, hopefully, though; I've got to finish filling out my THIRD job application that I'm actually going to CALL a week later to check up on, this time for the nearby Subway. God, let me get it :fingerscrossed:

Speaking of applications, Dad's been riding my ass about college apps. It's important for me because, as a music student, I need to audition. And time's running short on me, I can feel it. Ugh. Let's not forget two difficult classes this year, AP Psych (FUNN[I]EST. CLASS. EVAR.) and Advanced Algebra, though they're really only difficult due to the homework requirements. I've got to do a daily assignment in Algebra (which I haven't been good at keeping up with lately ^^; ) and read stuff for AP Psych (which I never do, despite the fact it's very interesting and engaging once I start reading). Anyway, those classes, plus a fun (but HARD) Drawing I class, have been, in tandem with the above-mentioned musical obligations, eating my very life force for the past few months. I've got to get my ass back in gear and start drawing stuff again, seriously. I mean, it's been, what, an eon since I posted the last page of Angry Kitty? Yeah, and things keep coming up in the new idea dept.

Here's one now: I've gotten an idea for an RPG story that uses characters that each have some weird quirk, as well as a different puzzle game to play during certain attacks in-game.
Due to that: I thought up a new puzzle game and I REALLY want to program it somehow. Seriously. I'm hoping I'll get that opportunity if I, like, nab a programming book or scrounge up someone on dA or something who is willing to help me with it. If I play it and have fun, then I'll try to refine it and sell it. I really think I might be able to get away with a profit (paying anyone who helps, of course). Anyone know a great amount of programming?

Another idea: Seeing as I'm in the hole for funds, I've decided to--hell, beware, you might just freeze over soon--try and sell prints. However! These prints won't be of my real pictures, and perhaps never will be, seeing as I know that there're WAY better pictures out there. What I'm hoping for is to use some of my designs, which originally were done for t-shirt ideas. However, dA doesn't do t-shirts (yet; they're losing money not doing so, I swear it), so I'm shooting for practical items, like mugs and mouse pads and magnets (M-Alliteration - 550 x 3). Now, I'm not asking anyone to buy them out of pity, but I'm asking to buy them if you honestly like them and are willing to add that much more crap to your stockpile of stuff at home or office (like, honestly, mouse pads? The only people I'd think of getting any would be my school, since the last computer lab I went into was using useless sheets of paper for mouse pads...). I'll be pricing at low prices, no matter how little profit I'd be making, since I know for a fact that nobody wants to spent $10 on a magnet. (I know I don't!) I have some hopefully-nifty stuff up sometimes, then, so just hold on if you're interested, oh non-existent people this applies to.

ANYWAY!! So, I've got to get back to homework, so...let's see...anything else...? Well, my usual status thing, but that'll be it, otherwise!! See ya!!

--Creative Status--
-EBA Fic: Got a bonus song stage ready to go, debating on how to approach it and if I should intersect it with another story idea of mine. If anyone can give me a good idea on what to do in terms of a stage for "Build Me Up, Buttercup", I will draw you a free giftart and give you credit in the chapter!!(This song is way too catchy and lively for its own good, especially with what the lyrics are saying!)
-Zelda Fic: See my FF.net account for recent shtuff; mainly focused on figuring out how to build a co-op dungeon for them to go through after the next chapter. (*too lazy to update on here for this, too*)
-KH: PoT: Started on Bit 13 today, but I still gotta figure out how best to split the world into two stories, among other things.
-" " CO: ...Well, got Luc's fighting style set, now that I've Brawl, but I still need to figure out some plot...
-Angry Kitty: Got chapter 1 written of a written form of it and am working on chapter 2; started page 4 ages ago, and am going to try to transfer a panel from my sketch to the paper, since I can't quite get Mars to stop reminding me of Max from one of the stages in EBA.
-WG: Going to color the Hard Dragon pic I DS Lightdesked and am working on the Plant Talents list still. Have all of Part 5 ready for updating, but, as said above, I'm a lazy-ass mutha-f***er. XP

Last call for summer fun! Yeah, one and a half more weeks and I'm back in school. That means fiddling with my schedule ASAP, since I wanted a study hall and I'll have to give up either AP(?) Psych or Chemistry...Ugh...I'm also in the pit orchestra for the school musical, Fairly Modern Milly, I think it's called. I wanted to sing, but I now realize that I NEED LESSONS. BAAAAAAAD. >_<;; Hey, I'm good enough to sing at church with no problem, though, so it's not ENTIRELY hopeless...Anyway, I hope that I'll somehow get my ass in gear and find a way to get the fourth page of Angry Kitty done and a picture I promised Sevvy. However, two things are intruding, mainly: One) My sudden urge to write up a storm again and Two) The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time: Master Quest.
Bit of sad news, there...
...
...
...
...I officially am afraid to play SSX On Tour again.
Wanna know why?
IT.
PERMANENTLY CORRUPTED.
MY.
ENTIRE.
WHTIE.
MEMORY CARD.
THAT'S 1019 BLOCKS WORTH OF DATA (be it open or used) THAT I CAN'T USE ANYMORE!! :censored: :cries:
All of my data...Paper Mario: TTYD...SSX3...TONS of data. Including some data for games I just got: THUG2 and Bloody Roar: Primal Fury included. And I'm REALLY pissed at that second one. Why? No real cheat codes exist that can help me get by until I unlock everything I at least HAD. And that game is FUCKING HARD AS HELL. Not just that, I need to beat it a gazillion times before I can finally unlock Beast Mode ;.; And, as I said, IT IS HARD. I had to practice at LEAST an hour with each fighter before I attempted to go through Arcade Mode. Man...if they only had the real, actual story instead of the tournament stuff they have in this one, it'd be better...Hell, even if it actually had BLOOD instead of stupid sparks--the package even SAYS it has blood--that'd be better. Gah. Regardless, though, probably actually thanks to a cosmic ray, according to my dad, the memory card is now ba-ROWKE. It corrupts any data I save on it now.
I still feel as if I could've saved it by deleting all the SSX On Tour data when I found something get corrupted when I was using it for cleaning-my-room music...

And by the way...

...

...I believe that Diamond is officially gone. Yes, Mom, this means that all of the pokémon you traded to me are gone. AND I NEVER EVEN GOT TO TOTALLY FINISH THE GAME!! I still had to catch the remaining Legendaries that I can get normally...>,_,< IT SUCKS. And now, things are going to be ENTIRELY different once Platinum comes out and I get it to replace Diamond. I'm going to miss out on the original stories...that's probably the WORST part of it. That and the fact I ported over so many of my guys from Sapphire...

Oh, well. At least I have a viable excuse to get Platinum, now ~.^

IN OTHER NEWS!!

Band Camp is officially over. That's the thing that's been helping keep me from the Internet for two weeks solid. All I have now is to go to two-hour things on Monday and Thursday nights until school starts, after which it'll be a different schedule. I'll also have my Tuesday nights filled with pit orchestra stuff for the musical. It's Jazz-time music--I AM NOT MISSING ANYTHING. Anyway, so now that that's done, I guess I'm trying to unwind while I can. Senior pics were taken yesterday, I've still got to find a job for during the school year as much as I'd hate to (I suck enough with getting homework in on time as it is--I'm not looking forward to revisiting Late Assignment City), and I've got some stuff up today. I'm being lazy and holding off on updating WG because I'm a lazy ass XD;;

Anyway, I might not post before school begins--just a heads-up. So, until next time, see ya!!

Yeah, I'm sorry about the huge wait, everyone...I was hanging out on :iconcarephrii: a lot (still am). But I've just uploaded all the latest parts of Kingdom Hearts: Puzzle of Truth for y'all! ^_^ However, last I checked, Part 5 of Ch. 12 isn't showing...I'm getting a preview, but nothing when I click the link. And I'm using the normal computer. *shrugs* Oh, well.
ACT: I got a compostite score of, I think, 26. I'd need to check, but I'm lazy right now. Anyway, I've got more stuff I should upload, but I've still got fanfiction.net to deal with...Oh, and a new page of Angry Kitty! Lookit! Lookit!! ^_^
Band Camp's starting week after next...which means summer is essentially over for me. :cries: Oh, well. It's been a LOT more productive than normal, IMO. Still haven't gotten a job yet, though, and I'm seriously considering getting one for, like, weekends during the school year. Dammit, I'm lazy--I can just go online and finish a job application to Wal-Mart and I'm done...Too frikkin' lazy and too much desire to get things written. *sighs* Oh, well. That's just me, I suppose.

Well, anyway, then, I'm off. See ya!!

NO! I'm NOT dead!! I'M NOT DEAD YET!! I feel hap-pyyyy, so hap-pyyyy... *THUNK* ^^; Yeah, sorry. I'm hyper again.

ANYway! Yeah, I've updated my stuff in terms of fanfiction and art. I've even put up some original artwork! Sure, it's just one piece, but it's something, right? Not the fanfiction crap I've been posting every time I come on here...
Okay, now, then, I've got some news for y'all: I'M TAKIN' THE ACT ON SATURDAY!! It was actually supposed to be a couple Sat.'s ago, but then a huge flash flood hit Fond du Lac, canceling Graduation (which I was going to play for, being in Band) and rescheduling it and causing quite a lot of fuss, such as us St. Paul's Cathedral peeps having to go to a place with a giant elk's head on the wall for church last Sunday ;.; THANK GOD, we weren't hit that badly. It was chaos, but we've survived. Anyway, though, the ACT was rescheduled--thankfully, too, since I hadn't studied. I'm going to get back to that now after I'm done updating on here. I've updated my stuff on FanFiction.net, so go there or, if you're lazy and don't mind the constant reloads that come with dA lately, read them here! AND COMMENT!! ^_^_^_^

ANYway, I didn't do stellarly on a practice test I took the other day, so I'm studying hard. Wish me luck on Saturday, please!! ^^;

Anyway, that's all. See ya!!

Well, regardless, it's Spring Break for me! I'm going to -TRY- and actually write up a storm this time! I swear it! I'm writing a chapter right now for my EBA fic, which I've just updated this account with, along with the other fanfictions I have neglected to post onto my dA account. Anyway, though, sorry for not saying much of anything lately. And I must say this now:

PERIOD. I was a bit dissapointed by Lucario at first, but now I main him constantly. He's pretty badass, and he's pretty hard to take down if you're up against a good one. However, he has a major weakness: He really just can't recover as spectacularly as Mewtwo could. His jumps are average, and his recovery move (upB) takes time to charge up, and so is not as useful as Mewtwo's Teleport. He's got a useful trick, though, in the form of his downB: Double Team. But, I think it's got less of a window for working in its animation than the FE folks' Counter move. You still need some timing with it. To get good with him, you have to not only realize his good moves (such as his boss-killer down air attack!) but get used to being dissapointed when you get KOed at high damage. Why? Because his gimmick--aura attacks are stronger the higher % he's got--WORKS. Aura Sphere still serves the same purpose Shadow Ball did, but, imo, maybe less so. I don't know why, but I don't use it as much as I did Shadow Ball.
Other characters are good, too. I find Olimar interesting, though I haven't played him much. Red (PKMN Trainer) is actually pretty good, or at least Charizard is fair. (Another good boss-killer is Charizard's sideB, Rock Smash. Do it right on the boss and kiss a hunka HP bar goodbye!) Squirtle is also pretty impressive with his speed and one of his Smashes reaches pretty high. Ivysaur ain't bad, but Razor Leaf coulda been more true to its awesome reputation of awesomeness. (Sorry, fave move in Pokémon EVER. So good for so many situations!) Pit's fun to play with, and his back air was the key to me winning against the final boss, since I couldn't beat him all the way before I discovered that attack.
As for the 3rd partiers...Snake is slow, but he's good for sneaky attacks with his explosives, seeing as he's got two attacks that involve setting proxies--true to form. He's strong, too, and has probably the most excellent recovery move in existance, vertically. Sonic...well, he's REALLY fast. Want chaos? Final Smash in World 1-2. Crazy. Griffith obviously tried, and did his grunts pretty well, but..."You're too slow!" has now made me want to blow up 4Kids before they can gloat that their mediocrity has tainted not just one of the greatest characters in gaming, but one of the greatest and most revered games in history. >_<# He's pretty different, too, to play with. His Homing Attack, neutralB, is helpful if you're close enough, and his recovery doesn't leave him entirely helpless falling--he can still attack and such, but cannot do the upB again.

Stage Builder is ADDICTING. Sure, the background music is dissapointingly annoying, but when you're playing on a stage you worked hard on with your friends and you're all having a blast, then it's worth it. Too bad there aren't more useful special pieces, but there's enough. (Needs more backgrounds, too...)
And SE is MORE than worth the price of admission. Long, hard, and fun--though annoying sometimes--and it culminates in a proper, Holy-Shit-That's-Long final level, the Great Maze. It's basically the best of all the stages rolled up into one. A pretty interesting storyline, despite the lack of dialouge, and I like it. It fits Brawl. Could've used a MUCH better ending cutscene, however...MUCH better. Kinda leaves you wanting more, imo. Least they translate the lyrics to the theme song before the credits roll!
The music is GREAT. I can tell Yoko Shimomura (I think on spelling) (KH music genius) had fun with the Gritzy Desert theme. They've got the Molgera Battle theme. They've got a kickin' Balloon Fight (well, Balloon Trip, but hey) remix. They've got a really awesome version of R/S/E Victory Road. (They DON'T have the wonderful R/S/E title theme, though, and still have the short but still sweet standard theme song, which disappointed me). THEY HAVE RIGHT THERE, RIDE ON. Awesome. I only wish that they had, for Live and Learn, Open Your Heart, HIS WORLD (Instrumental), and Seven Rings in Hand, the full versions. Oh, well, musta not been able to fit it.

Overall, if you have a Wii, GET BRAWL. Order it online if you have to! JUST GET IT!!
Well...that's pretty much it. See ya!!

It's the home stretch, people! At least, it is for me...I don't have anything big I have to worry about now ahead of me for this entire next week. All I have to do now is just sit back, relax, do my homework, and wait for one more week. What for? Well, I'll only say two things: I preordered it from EB and it comes out March 9th. :D
What exactly has been going on this week? Well, first, we had the POPS Concert, on Monday (Feb 25), and I think I sucked at it. I was so nervous, I really thought I might puke for some reason. I messed up a lot of notes and stuff, and I'm not happy. But at least it's over and done with. Then the LOOOOONG week went by, with Leap Day being a day off due to Wed. having been conference day, until today: District Solo & Ensemble Festival!! I performed in two events: One was at 8:24 A.M., a woodwind choir. Then, five hours and twenty-four minutes later, at 1:48 P.M. (or actually it was later since things weren't going according to plan there), was what I've been dreading all week: My Class A flute solo, and my first four-pager. I was so relieved when it was finished, and so surprised that he didn't have many comments--it appears my accompanist was angrier at him than I was, since she couldn't help the loud piano in that room. But anyway, I found out that I got a *1 on the woodwind choir, which was cool, but I was only surprised it was a class A piece, since it was relatively easy for me. But, then, I've been unfairly knocked down to 2nd flute for all this semester so far(unfairly because the challange resulted in a fluke--I somehow utterly forgot entirely about the challange despite practicing for it ON THE DAY OF THE CHALLANGE), so yeah. But, after my solo, I wanted to know my results before I left. I knew that I would be haunted and tortured if I didn't know right away. So I waited by watching one of my friends do her solo--she did great. But then I had to wait for half an hour doing nothing but standing, thinking, 'Where are the @#$% results?' until finally, I got them.

*1!!!

I'M GOING TO STATE SOLO AND ENSEMBLE!! (I mean, I was, anyway, with the choir *1, but that really doesn't matter that much to me compared to this, since I did so much hard work!!) :ecstatic: I CAN'T BELIEVE IT!! I DID IT!!! HOLY SHIT, MY FIRST CLASS A PIECE AND I GET TO GO TO STATE!! WOO-HOOOOOO!!!
The best part is that when I was just about to get the results, I had Fatboy Slim's "Give Me My Auger Back" from On The Floor At The Big Beat Boutique [Live] [UK], and right at the section towards the end of the track that had a great leadup until the big, happy-rockage finish. And as soon as I saw my score, an open-mouthed smile came on my lips as the track went on through my head. I walked away, and when the finale started, I so wanted to just dance like a maniac out in public. XD

In other words, I'm a happy camper. Got nothing to do but wait for the 9th and do my homework each night to get on top of things and relax, and I don't really have to worry about Solo and Ensemble anymore. Sure, I still have to practice that piece daily to get things right, but I doubt State's gonna be anytime next week. ^_^ So I'm happy.
And that's all, folks! See ya!

EBA Chapter: Written a new one up and ready to upload onto the compy as soon as I have time!!

Woke up this morning, heard the sound of a car splashing through a puddle, and something just went, "Huh?" in my head. XD Yeah, us Wisconsinites just got hit with the most snow Fond du Lac's seen since it started keeping records of it. So bad was it that they canceled church!! I doubt that they'll cancel school tomorrow, though...It was weird, though: it was raining when I got up and yet it was below freezing O_O
So, during the free morning I had, I decided to do some IMing (finally...Sorry about the sorta false alarm ^^; ) and finally did some RPing with my bro, Seve. (Wait, it's Sev now, ain't it? ^^; ) I also IMed Blacktail. Things were going good, then I started to do homework and IM at the same time. Easy enough, right? Well, when I got into an RP with Sev, at one point I accidentially started doing a long detailed description of my character changing into a tubble, and, well...I basically glowed beet red and scampered out of the room, figurativly speaking. I didn't come back on the rest of the day and still am a little embaressed now :blush: I hate that kind of thing, doing something so all-out and finding out you did it to the wrong guy...I felt SOOOOO bad!! >_<;;
Ugh...but anyway, what I did the rest of today was work on the second page of Angry Kitty. I finally finished it, and uploaded it minutes before I had to go practice. I even organized my gallery so that it's in those neat little folders you see people having ^_^. I put all things related to fanfictions in one folder, all things related to comics in another, all things related to my original stories in a third, and just about everything else in the fourth. I didn't get to everything, but hey, at least they're there ^_^ Oh, and Mustoshi, you got my note?
Speaking of, actually, I have to confess something: MEEBO IS A PIECE OF CRAP!! It's just changed itself up and now, while I can easilly handle multiple convos now, I can't handle multiple accounts!! >_<;; Which means I'm stuck with my most often-used account, my Y!M account. So please, everyone, ignore my MSN account number for the moment. :(

Let's see, now...

Fanfic Status:
--I am still not able to write anything, though I have gotten some more songs for my EBA/Ouendan fics! Including a slow song, which I can use if I can't find a suitible scenario for Kiss By a Rose: I Don't Want to Miss a Thing by Aerosmith. I'd say it's dramatic, wouldn't you? Anyone who even knows what I'm talking about...? ^^;
-!-ALSO! I cannot put my fanfics on dA, pretty much, since now the school computers have blocked the main dA page (I can, thankfully, access my own still) and all of fanfiction.net, the former for "Games" and the latter for "Adult Content" or something. The fact that it's all the fault of people who can't find the decency to put the type of stuff that consists of practically 90% of the Kingdom Hearts section onto an adult fanfic site really pisses me off the most. It's like dA and furvurts: IT'S A FAMILY SITE SO DON'T PUT YOUR GOD-DAMN LEMONS ON THERE!! Besides, 95% of the people who go onto ff.net want a STORY, not a PORNO. _/# So anyway, don't expect to see much of my fanfics, either reposts from ff.net or new stuff on ff.net, for a while, until at least I'm sure and ready. (Also, I'm going to wait until I have Brawl in my posession until I further explore the story of Ash so I can get an idea of how Lucario fights, and also so that I can get an idea of how to do the Melee Arena world better.)

In Angry Kitty:
--I have updated a new comic, pain in the ass it was, too, and a new cover, as only the clueless cannot see if they're reading this from the front page. I dunno what I'm gonna do for the rest...it's a lot of work. I have to change the punchline of this next comic already since I don't have all the stuff from last time now. Anyway, though, I'll keep trying my best.
--Profiles: Still wanna try and do these. They'll be fun to do. I've already done the three anthro main characters in their later-gotten outfits. MAN, it's going to take forever to get to Mars' first--OOP! *clamps hands over mouth* Anyway, wanna do them soon. ^_^

That's pretty much it! Until next time, see ya!!

Well, slap me with a television and call me St. Eva...We DID get a snow day!! XD;; Hey, that means I can finish that homework I somehow blew off again last night! (I've been doing that a lot lately...) ;P
In other news, I finally got to a little of Zelda II today, found it's as evil as the last few times I've tried it. X.X But I cleared the first temple!! |D;; Also am addicted to Breath of Fire II again...I canNOT play it today, I MUST not!! Not when last week, when we got a cold day(less than -30 F w/windchill factor), I miscalculated myself and ended up being unable to do all my homework. Well, I'll have a chance today! After I do this journal!
In related news, I now have a keyboard to set up instead of using the Wiimote to type! (Still got this annoying keyboard screen, tho...) And with this, I bring grand tidings. No, I don't finally have that laptop, that's still a LONG way aways...but I've got the next best thing:

:i: :h::a::v::e: :i::m: :b::a::c::k:!!
YES! Dad gave me permission to use www.meebo.com, Meebo.com for those seeing "[link]" there, to be able to IM with the Wii. It's rather slow and unweildy; the first time I logged on there the sheer amount of stuff caused the poor baby to crash. :( So I'm being safe (and sane) by limiting myself to three conversations at once. I think a multi-buddy single-window convo would count as one, tho, at the price of no private fun(like personal RP's). But the important part is that I can IM people again!!
...on that note, could anyone tell me what my MSN account name was? I kinda can't remember what it was, and as for the AIM, I've been forgetting my password to that since day one, so I'm doing a new account soon. I have a new accound for MSN, tho, and will put that under my info. If I could remember my MSN name and password(prolly it's the latter), I'll put that up instead. But for now, I'll just put my new MSN name up for people.
I won't be on that much, though, since they've closed the homework vice quicker on us this Semester's start that last semester. It's hard juggling IM's and focusing on Music Theory II homework simultaneously @_@

But hey, at least I have the ability to IM again! ^_^
AND NOW FOR OTHER NEWS!

Lent:
--Giving up: Ranch dressing.
--Taking up: Playing Diamond nightly like Mom since I never have time otherwise and I want to fully experience the game (and I want to build up my stock of berries X3)

Fanfic status:
--All of them: Basically on hold, probably until the end of semester. I've decided to put KH: PoT on hold at least until I get Brawl and maybe clear SE(and especially until I can get a glimpse of how Lucario fights for myself, for Chosen One). If I DO have time and inspiration, I might update SOMEthing over a weekend. But don't count on it.

Angry Kitty:
--New Cover: READY FOR LIFTOFF!! I will update with it as soon as I can update with...
--Page 2: Drawing = 9/16 panels done. Inking = 8/16 panels lined, considering dash-shading for black-and-white panels. Coloring = 0/5 panels done. I'll do the coloring when I don't have to worry about erasing or smudging ;P
--Character Bios: I might want to do some character bios sometime. I first, though, want to be sure I can draw them well enough. Believe me, it's harder to draw normal animals than you think. Then there's drawing females. And then you throw backgrounds into the mix, and hello @_@. Wait, that's for the comics...but the bios I should really do. Especially since I'll be working cheaply and will be doing it mostly in black and white, so I'll have to draw the characters and show them to you with information on each so that you know who's who. I also need to get a good idea of how MANY said characters I'll have. This looks like I'm gonna have a billion characters to keep track of...I have a tendency to do that X.X~* But don't expect any soon...
--Genesis.com: I will, after I have a bunch of comics up, be getting a Genesis.com page so that I can actually post all the pages I wish. I will move SoaT there when I am able to, also. (My personal webpage's bandwith SUCKS and it's runnin' outta space. I'll have to cram it full of links @_@) I'll say when I do it!

Let's see, anything else? No? Okay, then, well, let's-a go do some homework!! *The Ha-ha-no emoticon* Well, anyway, from me and my keyboard (and apparantly bigger-space-holding Wii Keyboard screen), see ya!! ^_^

YESH!! Thank God, it's DONE!! ^_^ The full-color, worked-my-tail-off-on-it page 1 of Angry Kitty!! WHEEEE!! ^_^ Now, then, I would love you all so very much if you'd please read it and comment on it, if you like it or not at LEAST. It was NOT completely fun to do, lemme tell ya...ugh...

Well, then, anyway, :party: HAPPY NEW YEAR!! :party: I hope that all of you have a wonderful and safe new year, and that you accomplish at least SOME of your resolutions. What's mine? Well, I resolve to get people birthday/X-Mas/etc presents ON MY OWN with MY OWN MONEY, not have someone else get it and say I gave it to them, or even leave them out of it. Even if this just means giftart, I'll do it. (Sadly, this may not be possible for people on here if I don't have a laptop soon...)

Actually...

MY DAD HAS ALL OF THIS MONTH OFF. All he's going to have to do is church stuff(he's treasurer), but he'll have some free time, thankfully, to do stuff now. THIS MIGHT JUST MEAN THAT I'LL FINALLY BE GETTING THE LAPTOP!! But let's not get our hopes up--he spaces just as much as I do, maybe more, and he also has a lot on his plate with church stuff alone. So, then, with that said, we can only hope that he takes the chance sometime soon in the month. :fingerscrossed:

Right, so, anyway, happy new year, look at my art, and see ya!! (Tomorrow school starts again...*sigh* 'Twas fun while it lasted...)

Yes, I have here the inked page one of Angry Kitty. I don't wanna stay on here much longer, since I've got a shower to take and then some Breath of Fire II to get back to playing. I just got through beating Augus w/Ryu(u?)/"Baba" and Rand, an armadillo who takes a page from both musclefurs' and Sonic's books in that he's RIPPED and that he can, on the overworld map, curl up and do a spin dash to travel along without having to fight people--until you crash, that is. I learned two important lessons today from it: 1) ALWAYS KEEP MORE POTIONS (Herbs) THAN YOU THINK YOU'LL NEED IF YOU CAN AFFORD THEM. I -ALMOST- got to the city after getting a bunch of cash and I died, one square away. Pissed me off, since it cuts your cash each time you die, a la Pokémon. Good thing that's it, unless you die at a boss, whom you'd have to restart. The second lesson: 2) You sometimes need more than just hope that you score lots of good hits, and that sometimes, even though you've got a really frikkin buff character--who's actually weaker than you, surprisingly--you need to have him stay back and be the healer while one guy does all the fighting. With revives at 500 a pop, the only way I could've won was by telling "Baba" to attack each turn, then have Rand heal him, even if I knew he was at full. I had a moment in the fight where it was just healing each other, but that finally passed, thank God, and I at last beat the kick-ass looking, dual-club wielding, twin-headed jackal monster with even more muscles than Rand--I think...
Along with that, I've got other games from the Virtual Console:

))N64: -Pokémon Snap -- It was my first N64 game, and not only is it nostalgia, but it's pretty fun and addicting.
   -Yoshi's Story -- A game I wanted when it came out but never did get. Now that I've played it a little bit, I'm sorry to say I'm a little disappointed at the goal being not to survive to the end but instead to eat 30 fruits. But, DAI'M, are those yoshis adorable!! ^_^

))NES: -Zelda II: The Adventure of Link -- I haven't played and finished either NES Zelda, and I should in order to add to my reputation in my circle of friends as the best at Zelda. This one's likely the most difficult of the two. Besides, it's the only side-scrolling canon Zelda in exisitance! (No, the CD-i games DON'T count)

))SNES: -ActRaiser -- I've heard good things about it, and I remember seeing it mentioned when I was doing a report on video game music a while back. And I like simulation games, despite the fact I have got 0 time nowadays. So, yeah, might as well.
   -Breath of Fire II -- It's got a protagonist who can become a dragon, a super-buff non-human party member, tons of other non-human party members, and it looked like a fun RPG. (Too bad the translation is horrific, with enough errors to make an English professor enter a 3-year coma--nothing like AYB, but disappointing nonetheless)

))TurboGrafix-16: -Dragon's Curse -- Hey, you play as a little lizard guy and other creatures in a platformer, pretty good for a furry. Besides, I wanted to try out a TG16 game once, and it's not bad. And the Lizard-Man form is ADORABLE!! Especially when you crouch down and he swoops his tail forwards. Sure, he's yellow, BUT HE'S SO FRIGGIN' CUUUUUUTE!! (Too bad I can't fathom why the next level would be so hard; there's gotta be another one around there...or maybe I just need to kick my twitch skills up a notch O_O; )

Anyway, go and check out my new page. And anyone who's interested, go on over to :iconcarephrii: and check out a tubble(a species in progress). I've gotta take a shower now, so see ya!!

Alright, I admit, I really don't have anything new to update about, except I GOT NiGHTS: JOURNEY OF DREAMS AND IT IS ALREADY SUCKING MY SOUL!! (Tho I have to say: *hears NiGHTS speak, then hears Reala call NiGHTS a guy* "I thought he was a guy...but...WHUH?!" Seriously, he sounds like a girl, but he's a guy...WTF?! What kinda screwed-up jester IS he? XD) And it's pretty hard to get used to, as well. But, wow, it feels a lot like how I thought it would when viewing NiGHTS Into Dreams... vids on YouTube. Anyway, that's fun, that's that, bleh.
It be my b-day. I'm now 17 years young! And, DAMN, do I not notice anything!! On her phone call, Mom yelled at me for not getting anything for ANYONE, regardless of how busy I am and the fact I've got no job. I REALLY should start getting my own gifts for people on birthdays and holidays, or at least try.
I hope you're not all mad at me or given up on me or something, since I haven't seen many people commenting on me or visiting...Maybe it's because I haven't updated on a timely basis for so long...*sighs* Oh, well...
Anyway, soon will begin another year. I've got games to play(wow, actually haven't played DS all day...), but I've also got stories I'll be working on and art to draw. My main project will be the page of AK (which I've been calling AG for short in my filenames for some strange reason) with inking and then coloring it. I dunno if I wanna even TRY messing it up by adding shading lines...I might just have to try coloring lightly for most areas but harder for the shaded areas. I'll color the first page and any panel where a new character/official outfit is introduced for the comic/really important scene, so that I can have SOME color in it, which I like.

In other news, ever since I started plotting out my fanfic, KH: PoT, a bit, I have decided to postpone all writing of YoruTatsu and possibly (although it's already postponed until I've got the characters fleshed out and a world completely set up, which is coming along s l  o   w    l     y) Wildale Glades, my fanfics of at least KH: PoT and its substory(/ies, since I've still got Metroid-, Sonic character-, and (eventually) EBA/Ouendan-centered fics to do, the latter of which means my EBA/Ouendan one may be postponed as well), and maybe Angry Kitty, but Mom says just let the characters take me. I'll try, Mom, I'll try! Surprisingly, I've got the main plot of Overwait Limit done with--one of the first things, actually. I still have to get in the fillers, work out anything I want to do later on after the first arc is done, and get the magic system down pat before trying it out for seriously.

Speaking of OL, I'll also, for any of you fetish horndogs out there--including the myriad musclefurs who faved Ryan Janknaw and subsequently watched me(note: I WILL be taking Ryan down after I'm done with the feral dragon style and redraw him correctly; as I said in the comment on him, I didn't do him right. Sorry, musclefurs, but I HAVE OTHER STUFF. *glares, but only in a hurtish way*)--I am going to be posting stuff I have had done for...I think since either this summer or LAST summer, sometime when I wasn't on the computer, on :iconcarephrii:. What doth this have to do with OL? Well, I'll be posting my first pic of a tubble that people online will see, albiet a pic I did when trying to--and I still am--work out the anatomy I want. I'll go into greater depth on it on the actual picture's comment. But anyone who wants to see it, please head to my fetish account, :iconcarephrii:. It'll be a while, but I'll be eventually done with the fetish pic posts, and I'll make sure that one is last so that you can instantly head over on there. Note: I won't release any more pics until I've got the anatomy CORRECT. When I do, I will put them here instead. OL belongs to me, not Carephrii; in fact, no story--except, when I compile it, The Tale of Carephrii--belongs on his account that I consider major(like WG and YT).

Anyway, enough chatter, I've got some updatin' to do, and I'm freezin'! See ya!!

Oh, man, I sound kinda like Sakurai when I'm describing my latest pics O_o;;

Anyway, MERRY Mc(late)CHRISTMAS!! I was visiting my stepsister's father's for this year, and he has no net. I got $80, I think, total, some toys o'course, Sonic Rush Adventure, The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass, a KICK-ASS COOL-looking guide for the latter, a 2000 pt Wii Points card(heh, like I'll be able to use it with the way the Shop Channel's been behaving; I can't even get ON!!), Paper Walls (Yellowcard), and...thassit I think. Enough stuff for me, tho! ^_^
I forgot to bring my DS charger, however, so I ended up with some free time(after discovering I think I'll need to send in my DS for repairs since Link rolls when running right when I don't draw a circle for him to do so ;.; Sayonnara, gazillion bucks...), during which I drew. At first I was kinda bleh, but then I got obsessed with fulfilling my fetishiness and drawing musclular AND fat draggies. Then it cooled down and led me to drawing some stuffy Mc stuff-stuffs. Like what you see submitted today! Merry Christmas!! Well, alright, the Angry Kitty thing, that's been done for a while, but I've just had no chance to get it up on here, but whatever. I'll maybe move the two dragons I drew into scraps sometime later. BUT LOOK AT MY ANGRY KITTY COVER AIN'T IT PWETTY?! *shot*
Anywho, sorry for anyone who cares, but no fanfic (heh, almost said fanf*** XP) update tonight. I don't have anything. I DO have in the works, out of pure whim, a children's story about a dragon and his experience with Christmas, one I hope will find a balance between Christian and secular with enough in the secular that it'd be showable in normal places but still showing all the important things of Christmas and stuff. It's coming along interestingly. I hope I can finish it well and submit it with pride. If it seems good enough, I'll send it to Mom and see her opinion. (She's me editor for whenever I eventually get to publishing) It's hopefully going to have as little furriness as I can manage while still being bearable to furries.
Speaking of Mom--Sorry, Mom, I wanted to send you your dragon but there's no real e-mail addy here on the guest account. So, dad says he'll do it (Me: 'Yeah, right, like THAT'll ever happen <_<# ' ). Sorry, very sorry.
Anyway, tomorrow's my birthday--anyone who cares, you don't need to draw me a pic because of the short notice(or at all, actually; I expect nothing from my friends). I'll try and draw more stuff tonight and see if I have anything new for tomorrow. So, Merry late Christmas!!

Alright, now, I've got four pages of a sketch of a webcomic I'm starting since I can't work on SoaT from the Wii at all. It's called "Angry Kitty," and will feature that fat, chain-and-axe-wielding kitty, as well as a few other anthros and a couple humans thrown in for good measure. I'll detail them later. But for now, since I'm short on time, let me also explain the second part of my title: I tried to upload my latest in fanfiction, but the damn computer didn't read my floppy right; it could see what files where there, sure, but opening them or even bringing up a right-click list for them? Nuh-uh. I'm going to have to use a new floppy. I'll update my FF.net account later on tonight, though, after practice and bathing. I hope I may also update with a scrap depicting some important (to me) improvement on drawing front view dragon heads. Anyway, gotta go or Dad'll kill me! See ya!

...I'm gonna tie up his superiors so he has a few days off. His being a teacher--the ONLY Physics teacher (I think) at UW-Fond du Lac at the moment--and our church treasurer, and therefore busy 24/7, is what's been taking so long for us to get the laptop. I'm wondering if Laura and I should just get it ourselves XD;; Not really, but still. Dad needs, apparantly, at least a full day off to have time to look at a new laptop. At this rate, I don't think we can expect one before Christmas Vacation, if even THAT. ;_; Sorry...Hey, maybe he gets Thanksgiving off!! *hopes highly*

In other news: Updated the descriptions of the posted PoT chapters here to include the cute chapter names I gave them at FF.net(with correct punctuation, o'course!). Also, I've ordered--FINALLY!!--Ouendan 2 from Yes-Asia, using MY BRAND SPANKIN' NEW DEBIT CARD!! Next, I'm-a gonna get me some Wii Points...Yeee!! ^_^ Anywho, gotta go, updating at school...See ya!

...And, holy fuck, am I loving it. ^_^ MP3: C, BABY! I got it Friday, and it rocks. I've had to get used to the controls--switched jump & fire around until I realized that it's more into me to press a button w/my thumb to jump; in other words, I'm literally trigger-happy. >:) I AM concerned, tho, with my game: At some points, the music starts skipping and looping like a broken record, and oftimes it takes a while for a room to load. But this game is HUGE, and Hypermode ain't as scary as I thought it would be. I still am adjusting to motion control, and still acc. press C instead of - or B to exit Scanner visor. All in all, so far it's magnificent.

But on this note, I've got 9 Friend Vouchers burning a hole in me pocket, and Fusion doesn't have it yet, acc. to my game. So, I'm asking you all, PLEASE add me to your Wii friend's list, ESP. you guys with MP3: C! I WANNA Mii BOBBLEHEAD! XD

Yes, folks, a real, live, no-lie ART UPDATE has occured!! ^_^ This means NEW ART!! Not much, BUT IT'S NEWWY!! I'm sorry to say, though, it's mostly stories. And most of it's not going on here as of yet because it's taken an ASSLOAD of time to get everything up. Here's my updates:

+ Two new WG-related pics, one a scrap and the other a deviation
+ 5 or 6 (forgot) new *EXCITING* chappies of YoruTatsu!!
+ And on my account over at FanFiction.net, I've got up two new fanfics! FANFICS!! WHEEE!! ^_^ Yeah, it's late at night, I'm nervy, not okay XD; Anyway, one of my fanfics regards Elite Beat Agents, and at the end of each chapter you will find a custom-made notechart out of ASCII, meaning you'll find a jumble of gobbledygook because the site's not in set-width font! I ask that if you want to enjoy it, then please, copy-paste it into a notebook or something with set-width font in it. I like them! A lot!! I'll be posting them with actual pictures for the things someday soon, when we get the laptop and I instal Photoshop 7 on there and stuff.
+ The other fanfic is my latest attempt at creating a ginormous fanfic AND STICKIN' WITH IT!! This time, it's Mewtwo-related(wait, it's ALWAYS Mewtwo-related!), but it's also Kingdom Hearts-, Sonic-, and even METROID-related! It's my newest big baby: Kingdom Hearts: Puzzle of Truth. Who'd've thought Mewtwo would become a hero of the Keyblade? PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD READ IT!! I've spent so much time on it, it's insane! I prolly have tons of plotholes because of how long the chapters are and how long I wait between writing them!
+ On THAT note, I have five pictures related to that fanfic up now: Two pictures of Keyblades and three of my first fanmade pokémon: Terrone, Terroge, and Terrove! I'll hopefully post up more stuff when I make more pokemon, keyblades, and other stuff related to the fic. I am a total dork, I know, and I'm sorry. But please, read the fic. I'll provide links to them at the bottom of my post.


Moving on, I also have got your dragon pic scanned in, Mom, and I will tell dad to send it to you in its three peices. Tell him if he accidentially sends one of the accidentially-saved-as-b&w ones. On that, for everyone else, I had to rescan all my color pics in because stupid Irfanview saved JPEGs as black-and-white images! I made them PNGs instead, hope they still show. Well, anyway, I've spent a GREAT deal of time on the computer busilly updating. I ask that you please, if you have time, read my fanfics--ESPECIALLY KH: PoT!!--and enjoy what little art I have up now. So, for now, at least, a hearty SEE YA!! *falls asleep*



------FANFICS-----

***Kingdom Hearts/Pokémon/Sonic/Metroid fic***

Kingdom Hearts: Puzzle of Truth    www.fanfiction.net/s/3744539/1…

Elite Beat Agents/Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan/Pokémon (of course) fic

[Insert Game Title Here]: Gotta Cheer 'em All!    www.fanfiction.net/s/3744567/1…

NOTE: In the EBA fic, there's supposed to be ASCII stuff. I think what I'll end up doing is posting the chapters on my site, in a set-width font, so that you'll be able to see them. That, or I'll just simply draw the chapter title as well when I put them up here and draw the note charts I make for them. ANYWAY SEE YA G'NIGHT EVERYBODY!!

*** NOTE: This is primarilly for the fetishfurs who watch this account. Any other fur may disregard this, but I encourage anyone with an open mind to also read this. ***

I posted something on my fetish art page, :iconcarephrii:, in my journal. It is an idea I had after veiwing someone's attempt to clear furries' names to the public via YouTube(and sounding freakilly like me). My idea is for a new site or, as a plan B, a club on here or FA, that only--ONLY--posts tame (non-pron) art of the furry fandom fetishes. Why? Because of Murphy's Law and similar processes making the furries who let themselves REALLY go be the ones that non-furries tend to focus on and base the furry stereotypes off of. (Mainly, though, it's for the fetishfurs) I want to amend this by showing that even the WEIRDEST of us, the fetishfurs, are not anywhere near as sick as people think. That, and other reasons.

But I really want fellow furries, esp. fetishfurs, to read the journal entry--which, I warn you, is long. I post here since I've got people here that could listen and consider my idea that don't watch my other account.

So, please, read my journal'n tell me what you think. (No, y'don't have to look at my weird art)--> :iconcarephrii:
