Frequently Asked Questions (last updated September 24, 2013)

Yay, two new chapters posted in one day!  :D  Trials of the Flesh is officially finished, and Magic and Steel has been updated.  Now on to update Domovoi, and then to begin Transformers: Nexus Point. 

Don't expect anything to be updated this weekend, however.  Fandemonium prep comes first.  Though do expect pictures of the "goods" to go up soon -- if I have any unsold stock it'll be offered for sale here, and I WILL take commissions even on stuff that sold out at the convention.  (That's assuming stuff DOES sell -- the fact that we got the table at the very end of the Artist Alley doesn't bode too well...)

I have to admit, my attitude toward the convention is improving some.  True, I'm still going to miss chunks of the convention, and I'm pretty well stuck with the table for most of the day Friday, since my brother-in-law can't be there and my sister doesn't want to dump her kids on Grandma for the entire day.  But since the Artist Alley is only open until 6 or 7 every day, that leaves me the evenings to go explore some.  And we're already talking about closing up shop a little early on Sunday to participate in the Scrap Cosplay competition.

Dangit, I'm going to have fun at this convention even if it kills me.  :XD:  I might be chained to a table, but I can still try to have a good time regardless, right?

One down side to having the convention in a different venue this year -- they charge for parking.  Phooey.  I'll find a way to deal...

Before the convention, however, there's one more event I need to deal with -- our library's end-of-summer breakfast.  It used to be that we had a picnic on the lawn to celebrate the end of the summer library programs, but soon we realized it's cheaper to make pancakes for a couple hundred people than it is to cook hot dogs, so we made it a pancake breakfast instead.  The fact that the library's located on the corner of Maple Street and Syrup Street had something to do with that decision too, though.  :giggle:  Obviously whoever named those streets had a sense of humor...

The last several years I've been roped into entertaining the kids at the breakfast, usually by donning a costume and greeting the crowds.  Most years it's been a Transformer costume, but I don't have a costume this year, so I'll be going as the world's shortest Darth Vader again.  :XD:  Let's see how many little kids I freak out this year.

Between convention prep and work, don't be surprised if y'all don't hear from me again until next week.  Just a warning...

Thanks to :iconkartoon12: for the idea for journal feature!  Well, she suggested "your favorite character from The LEGO Movie," so here's my weird choice.  :XD:

Hasbro has come out with its own, much-hyped Windblade character. Should I retcon and change the name of my own Windblade OC (Glory's creator)?

Saw HTTYD 2 tonight and it was amazing. Do yourself a favor and see it in the theater - it's gorgeous and that soundtrack deserves theater-quality speakers.

Do let me know once you've seen it - I can't wait to hear what you think of the ending!

Going to see the new How to Train Your Dragon movie? I'm going this weekend (as a reward for working some crazy hours) and promise not to spoil anything!

Probably not for awhile, sadly.  Hoping to soon!

I did hear that the Make-A-Wish Foundation got Dreamworks to air the film early in one theater here for a little boy with brain cancer who loved dragons... that was sweet, I think.  :)
