SOS, people. Foxgirl is almost ready to release the next chapter of Dragonsclaim, which even I am waiting on tenterhooks for. Well, she needs some names, by the way. This post is short but very important--crucial! Take a look at the Dragonsclaim page and read through the stuff, and see if you can find any names for the nameless people.

I am just churning out blog posts today....
If you have read and remember my post about Let's Play A Game!, you'll remember that I was planning on making a game out of my Alice story. (It is an abridged version.) Well, thanks to Shadowfox, I have successfully been able to put it on the net! (Unfortunately, it has some glitches, and I'm not done with it yet. otherwise it's great.) It's under the Games tab, very last one, and you probably have to zoom in pretty far to see it close enough to play. READ THE INSTRUCTIONS! I know I haven't finished it yet and all that, and there's probably a bunch of mistakes in there I haven't worked out yet, but give it a test run if you like, and I'm hoping to add to it soon!

If you're NOT like me who lives under a rock, then you should know that the Oscar Awards are happening. Or they happened. Or will happen soon? I don't really know. If you aren't in the same country and have no idea what I'm talking about, forget it. But anyway, I thought it would be cool to think about the Oscars. (Are they called Oscar Awards or what?) And so I wanted to do something cool for that.
I wish I could give YOU GUYS awards for being so awesome, but I am out of icons to use. Dangit. So, I have to settle with awarding some of the stories.
It's just that you guys get to choose for what. ('Cause I am feeling guilty that you don't get anything.)
The awards are as follows:
Off you go now. Go and decide. And pick something that you really believe in!

Just wanted to update you guys on some of the characters I plan to put in Lost (aka True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle: edited).
Main character: Nearra. (You should know her from what I have of Lost so far.) Pronounced nee-AIR-a.
Brother: Spyder. (name is subject to change.)
Sister: Nicole (name subject to change.)
Captain: no idea. What do YOU think his name should be? (leave a comment, please.)
Seren: another character. Why do i get the feeling that I have a character already named Seren somehwere. You can pronounce it Sair-en or Seer-in. [I say Sair-en.]
James: Seren's brother.
Violet: another girl on the ship....I don't know much about her yet....(ME [as in the honorary Tsarmina coworkers' guild member] and I are writing it together, and she made up Violet.)
Marvin and Marvis: one of them's a cat. The other one's a person. ME made them up, and I can't figure out who is who.
That's really all so far. I mean, there are a couple other people from the original Lost story (Luk, Amalia, Suzune, Raedon, Shardas, Velika, etc.) but I might edit them. I just didn't feel like listing them, to be true....
Oh yeah, and you can expect a picture coming soon. ;) (HINT, HINT)

Okay, so when I went to check my email to reply to the bazillion comments that appeared on here in a matter of seconds O_o the mail program told me they are doing matainance so I can't check my email. Phooey. Just thought I'd let you know, so I probably won't be responding any time soon because I can't receive, write, or check emails. -_________- Hooray for that. But I'm so glad that you guys are grabbing onto the comment train and hanging on tight. Love you all.

Shadow Kingdom is updated and still going strong. In fact, i'm writing it right now and I'd better get back to it :) later I have a violin concert to play, so I probably won't update for a while. Enjoy reading!

That's one weird title, but I have to say that I made the Nearra-Charlotte complex with a simple idea in mind. There's a complication in the Lost story.
There's a backstory. There's ALWAYS a backstory, right? ;)
So Weewaa (and if you don't know Weewaa by now, get OUT) told me about how in class they ahd been looking at the political side of the Wizard of Oz. Turns out the story is one big political cartoon! O_o and no, I don't mean that if you turn the pages fast enough it will make a little movie start to play. Dorothy is supposed to be the Populist Party, the Emerald City is a representation of money, the Yellow Brick Road is the path to money (yellow? gold? gold=money, right?), yada yada yada....it's actually pretty cool to look at it that way.
Weeeellll....you should know what's coming next...I thought it'd be cool to incorporate something like that into MY story. The problem was which story. I didn't want to do Shadow Kingdom because that is NOT a good story for politics, WOR was too far along, and most of the others I was just like NAH. So I settled on Lost--a story with a lot of hopes from me and yet one that isn't too developed yet. (Okay, not developed at all....I keep changing the storyline....) So tada, I am incorporating the: political state of warring countries and standby and alliance forms aftermath era (post-war) of World War 2. Phew, that's a long statement....
But wait! That's not it!
Besides the whole World War politics thing, my friend (who is a little bit wild...okay really wild) told me in class she was reading True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle by Avi in class, and that they were planning on acting it out. (She, of course, was Charlotte, and would be yelling at my friends to get into character and act and talk like Zacahriah or Jaggery....sigh....) If you haven't read the story, it's about a girl named Charlotte who is the only (and female) passenger on the ship the Seahawk, which is taking her back to....Britain?....because she was studying in America. She's like 13. Well, my class wasn't studying the True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle, and I felt kinda left out, so while she was being all the in character I jumped in adding a NEW character to the story....and then we were off! We wrote our banter down on notecards and apparently we've taken Avi's story and have gone off on a tangent. A very, very far tangent, and needless to say, it's great fun. Now as we spin this story (I use present-tense because we're not done yet) I was thinking, how great and cool would it be to put it in one of my stories? And again, the questions was WHICH story to put it in....so everybody, say it with me now....I chose....
And there's the Nearra-Charlotte Complex. In my version/parody of True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle, Nearra will be Charlotte, obviously, and I'm going to have a great time with my crazy mind and my World War 2 scheme....hehe.

Hi guys. Sorry for the no-update thing...yeah....I guess I've just been REALLY busy. So yeah anyway. I printed out what I have so far of Shadow Kingdom (and have found one typo...=.= can you find it? ;) ) and it's a freaking 94 pages. I am well on my way to an eighth of the way there!!! (did i spell eighth right? I always have trouble with that one.) anyway, it's definitely going to take a lot more work if I wanna getit finished by the end of December! *looks at all the work ahead* *GROAN* Kiddin. I love writing this thing, and I'm surprised that I've filled up so many pages when I'm not exactly at any action yet. O_o So yeah, that was that, just wanted to show you my accomplished thing so far. I think I'll be printing out more of Shadow Kingdom as I go so I can judge how far I've gotten and how thick the book would be when it's finished. Hehe.

I'm starting to create a game!
Before I go into detail, I will tell you that I have a bandage on one finger and this makes it extremely hard to type, so please forgive any typos.
So, yeah, it's a game....it's not exactly RPG, but I guess it ahs interactive content. If you've ever played Cause of Death or Suviving High School, I'm following on those lines. :) It's for Alice. You get to be "her" and follow her through Wonderland, and make choices, blah blah blah. The pictures are NOT MINE!!! I don't own them, so nobody come to me wailing that I sued your picture! (if it's yours.) The pictures are also not accurate, but I couldn't find the time to run through and draw every single person, so you'll have to stick with a general idea with the pictures I've supplied. Don't get too attached; I'll probably draw them later.
I just started, and I may bnever finish, so...

Sorry for dropping off the face of the Earth for like three weeks. ^^" I was abducted by aliens....kidding. Hehe. Anyway, I just wanted to say Happy Valentine's Day to all of you who celebrate it on this day, etc etc etc...and if you guys didn't find someone who confessed love or whatever you think of, it's okay. Don't go and cry in a corner. I don't have a lot of time, but just a quick update....
Shadow Kingdom is inching along. I've been itching to write but I got sidetracked yesterday...
By this fantastic computer animation program called MikuMikuDance (MMD). Weird title, but it's fascinating and easy to use (you know how much of a computer geek I am, tehe.) So, yeah, it's surprisingly easy but strangely difficult in the parts that SHOULD be easy. Like I can't figure out how to open up a saved file! ARGHHHHH!!!!!! It's a free download, and I suggest you try it, it's a lot easier than Flash and a lot CHEAPER too, since it's free.
Not only that, but I've been distracted with drawing, and I've FINALLY started the text part of my Alice story, except that it's a paper story and I sadly don't have anything to show you....sigh.....
Okay, I gotta go. If I can I'll show you some of the stuff I've been having fun drawing!
