#Introduction (Also my former profile)
I write fantasy, dystopia, apocalypse, & romance; I blog about home improvement, which can be all 4 of those.
Live with 3 cats, 1 husband, & my imagination.

My Current Stories Described (1/?) Show more
The Portal Closed: They’ve been locked out of the world where they spent most of their childhood, because they’re no longer children. They don’t plan to let that stop them.
The Hidden Mall: Abby and Liv were trying to hide from a bully when they found a whole bazaar behind the mall. Things have only gotten more bizarre since then.
Mdom-not-asshole/Haunted House: Mélanie was expecting another asshole owner. She was not expecting a kind man & a friendly house.
I live in cow country in the Finger Lakes, NY State, US.
Addergoole/Fae Apoc: a primer Show more
Addergoole was my first webserial and is now my 7th as well: a dark (DARK) fantasy setting in an underground boarding school where the students learn, among other things, that they are fae and can use magic.
Fae Apoc is the wider setting - named for an apocalypse that happens in 2011, when the Departed “Gods” return from Ellehem (fae-home).
At the edge of night, lay the vixens three, with fur of ruby, silver and onyx, respectively, seemingly carefree, but ears and golden eyes alert. A stranger soon approached them.
The traveler was dirty and unshaven, but knelt respectfully.
"What do you seek?" asked Ruby, curiously.
"Why are you here?" asked Silver, cautious but kindly.
"And what do you want, human?" asked Onyx, the most critical and dubious of the trio.
The castle was crumbling.
The Royals & Nobles had fled, finding themselves helpless after a curse had vanished every servant, serf & peasant.
Or so they were lead to believe.
Piece by piece the castle was disassembled, its stones used to create new homes. Most of the Royal pleasure gardens were plowed for additional farmland.
Hunting commenced in the plentiful Royal Forests, with no fear of incarceration.
The commoners finally thrived.
The idiom for the day is: (the) it factor
The wordcount goal is: 300 words.
It's been so long since i've posted stuff I've lost track a bit - but I don't think i've posted any #patreon stuff for a while. Here's the process gif for this one! It's
uncharacteristically decisive in it's realisation, by my own standards.

So I’m not going blind!
I mean, I am not having another optic neuritis episode, yay.
@aldersprig "In my day Potions was taught by a professor who was more likely to berate a first year for not already having expert knowledge than to ever offer the slightest assistance, and that was for members of his own house. And we liked it that way! You kids have it so easy today what with your weight reduction charmed cauldrons and air freshening splash guarding hats."
I have a tab open that right now reads BringBackSna
And when I forget it says “Bring Back #SnailMail,” I think it’s saying “bring Back Snape.”

I dunno why but I like this bit of the thing I'm #Writing for Cal so I'm sharing it completely without context
The Other didn’t like to talk, but that didn’t mean they couldn’t Work. The Words came out half-feral but every bit magic, “Abatu Eperu σίδερο αλυσίδες, σίδερο ράβδος όλα, Zeta!”
Nathen winced. A zeta Working was in their power range, sure, but it was a lot, and he still had healing to do with the reserves they shared.
I was cutting through a building today and finally got a picture of this bug display for @Anke
Photo warning: bugs.
And my question for @Jenkar
... Well, I don't quite know you, so... What was your favorite part of the Umbrella Academy?
if you had the ability to make it that, spontaneously, everyone in the world experienced a specific piece of media, what would it be?
That's a really hard one.
I can think of a couple things.
One of MLK's **Other** speeches.
John Oliver's recent piece on social shaming (no disrespect to the Rev. Doctor meant by putting him in company with John Oliver).
... Those are the only ones I can think of right now.
A tall woman who wears long skirts and wields power tools. A waterfall: deceptively peaceful.
