Firstly, I want to thank all of my watchers and friends on this site for responding to my last journal in the way that you did. It meant so much to me that I don't think that I can effectively put it into words. Let me just say that, without all of the people commenting on my characters and pushing me to continue, none of these projects would have ever gotten this far. I might not have ever reached the Espada, let alone the Lieutenants and the members of Section 66. I thank all of you from the bottom of my heart, and I hope that you'll continue to follow the characters, fictions, and ideas that I put out there, good, bad, or horrible, and I'll always do my best to help out the community in any way that I can.
Outside of that, I just got back from my place at the beach. That's why there are SO many comments, notes, and replies that I haven't been able to respond to. I've been able to look at them from my phone and laptop, but time was impossible to find, and the few times I managed to sit down and type weren't enough for me to even make a dent in what I wanted to go. So please expect a swift correction on this subject; I'll be responding to everyone shortly.
I also wanted to let people know what's going down on these following projects.Bleach Project:
I'm currently going to be focusing solely on the 'An ---' series of fictions, setting the scene and preparing for the main fanfiction that will be the culmination of my entire Bleach project. I'm going to be devoting a lot of time to this, and it will put the character sheets on semi-permanent pause as I write them out. I know that this may upset some people. I completely understand why, too. But the fiction is where my creative spark seems to be going, and if I don't follow it, what I produce won't be as good as what I want it to be.Avatar Original Characters:
I see that a lot of my friends on this site have been falling into making Avatar characters, so I'm going to throw my own into the ring. I don't like the new show (Korra) for various reasons, but I'm in love with the Last Airbender, and I happen to have over a dozen characters that were NPCs in an Avatar-themed RP that I was running. They have their own little storyline (not sure if I'll ever make a fanfiction) that will be explained bit by bit in the descriptions of their pictures.City of Heroes Characters:
I'm in love with this game. I have been since it first came out, and I will be until it dies and shrivels away. I recently got back into it, and I've been roleplaying on the Virtue server more and more in my free time. There is a HUGE community for this stuff out there, and I'm going to jump right into it. My first step will be commissioning artwork of my four main characters. I'll then be making wiki pages on virtueverse.net (a site devoted to that single server and the characters within it). Sphinx:
This is my personal manga project. Unfortunately, five of the artists who I contacted have yet to return any sort of test-page or update on their progress. That means that it's very, very spotty at the moment. I still have major faith in one or two people who I'm talking to about tackling it, but until then, the project will be very slow moving. I might get some commissions in the future, though, just to stir up some interest.Youtube Singing:
Not many people know, but I like to sing in my spare time. I've been in bands, I've performed in the city, and I even trained under an opera singer for a couple of years. For a while, I considered doing songs on Youtube and seeing where that got me. It never happened. Doing karaoke recently has made me interested in it again, so I might take it up and give it another shot.
