I forgot that when I lost my premium membership I lost the little box that had this in the open. Until I get another one, here it is. I'll also be posting it in the bottoms of my future journal entries. Oh! There's also a new thing I wanted to add: the main difference between digital and "sketch" is that "sketch" is drawn on paper by hand. This will probably retain something closer to my older style with bits and pieces of my new one. Digital is 100% my new, realistic style unless you commission otherwise. Keep in mind that for colored ones you will have to give me color palettes and it may take a while for me to finish your requests as I do have a job and I have a pregnant sister who needs my help from time to time. That aside, thank you for watching and I look forward to drawing something for you guys!

Work in Progress

Journal Entry: Wed Sep 7, 2011, 9:59 AM
So, since I'm a terrible person and am always forgetting to update you guys, here's the low down on my life right now and all the things I'm working on:

1. I'm currently working part time as a Third Key. This is only my second job ever and my first management one. I won't say what company and I have no comment on how I feel about it. However, I do want to say that I've been working a lot here recently and so while I have time to get on here and reply I don't have the time to draw lots and submit anything, so my updates via art are gonna be a little sparse for a while.

2. My sister, whom I'm living with, is pregnant! I'm really excited, but this also means we need to move into a larger place, so I'm working even harder. That's another reason I am not updating as much.

3. I am working on my story, for those of you who are genuinely curious. I'm about 1/2 done with my revisions. My goal is to start sending it out for publishers by the end of October, which is really exciting for me!

4. In regards to my story, I may be splitting it into 3 parts instead of 2 if it grows anymore than I already has, but I'll keep you all posted on this!

5. I have another project I'm working on as well, but that one is Top Secret, so you guys will just have to wait and see! I'll definitely give you guys a look at it when it's done :) I'm gonna be so ecstatic when I actually show you guys!!

6. I went to Sac Anime this past weekend, which was exciting! I'm definitely going back next year. Also, it inspired me to work on a new cosplay: Lord Kanti from FLCL!! I'll post W.I.P. pictures when I have them, but in the mean time please look forward to that!

I can't really think of anything else that I haven't updated you guys on, but if I think of anything I'll be sure to let you all know :) Have a great day everyone! As always, thank you so much for watching me and even bothering to read these silly journals. I hope to hear from you all soon.

Cast Q and A 2

Journal Entry: Mon Jul 18, 2011, 10:08 AM
Alrighty, here's the deal. You can ask any of the characters from any of my stories any question you want. So, it's a character free for all :D You can ask anything you want, but if the question would require spoilers from the story they can and will dodge the question. Whoever you ask will answer in character, and others may end up joining in. So, yes, have fun and ask away!!

Oh, and I had a wonderful idea about this when I was taking a shower today. I'm not going to reply in this journal. I won't be telling you how I'm going to reply, but it won't be here. I promise that every question will be addressed though!

C. Dreams

P.S. I more than definitely won't reply right away, so just hang tight and I promise that I will reply before this ends(which is now not determined).

Interpreted Requests

Journal Entry: Fri May 27, 2011, 4:09 PM
Since Easter is coming up, I had a grand idea for what to do: Interpreted Requests. Now, I know the name doesn't make much sense by itself, so hear me out. An Interpreted Request is one where you only give me one or two words to go on and I draw you something that is my interpreted idea of your request. I know, it's weird, but I just thought it up, so how about it? Comment on this journal with only one or two words and I'll see what I can do. These requests are only open until the 30th, so think hard on what you want before you comment, alright? I'll post them all May 10th, and it'll be my late Easter Gifts to all of you~

Update: Now that I am done with all of the requests, I would like to leave them open for any and everyone to just have fun with it. Suggest away and I just might draw it for you :)

Yes, I just kind of parodied and referenced UsagiTenshi's notorious Sam and Crowstone comics, but jfvnkladfxgnrkjafdgkhlzdfngdfsheriodfk!!! I literally just finished writing the rough version of the first half of my story!!! I'm so excited ;A; I'm currently going to start editing the entire first half(oh dear goodness) and write the first chapter(I'm gonna die ;A; ) of Losing Oz Forever(found at my Stories-To-Come account)! Yay, so exciting~

Anyways, in honor of finishing the first half I'm gonna work on a crap ton of memes with the gang in them. Sorry for the large delay on the Interpreted Requests, it's been an interesting few weeks involving lots of schedule changes at work and three day vacation trips. I'll be jumping on those soon too, promise!

Thank you guys for putting up with me, I love you ALL~

P.S. I was messing around and made a new journal skin. You like? ;D

My sister and her fiance just gave me my birthday gift because they only have 15 days to return it in case it's broke or stops working. So, they wanted me to test it. GUESS WHAT IT IS!! :iconimhappyplz: It's a fire-trucking TABLET!!! I'm so excited! I'm using it for everything in order to get further acquainted with it and so I can draw with it on a more daily basis. So, you may get a lot of spam drawings in the future, many of which will be quite crappy. Just hang in there, guys. I promise that I'll get to the good stuff soon~

OC Meme

Journal Entry: Thu Apr 21, 2011, 3:41 PM
Stolen from Arcubabyy~

List 12 of your original characters:

1. Ecilla
2. Andrew
3. Chess
4. Loudags
5. Mortemus
6. Dildrem
7. Difyr
8. Orohitz
9. Etor
10. Lehoi
11. Eledor
12. Blyfra

01)Who would make a better college professor, 6(Dildrem) or 11(Eledor)? What subjects would they teach?
Oh goodness, definitely Eledor. For starters, he's hundreds of years old and he's also not a serial killer. He would teach History and she would, more than likely, teach Psychology 101.

02) Do you think 2 (Andrew) is hot? How hot?
More like amusing and cute. On a scale from cute to hot, he'd rank 1(pretty darn cute) rather than 10(smoking hot).

03) 12 (Blyfra) sends 8(Orohitz) on a mission. What is it, and does it succeed?
Well, with her being the Witch of the West, the idea of her sending Orohitz on a mission is pretty amusing. But, if she had to, it would probably be to have him spy on the Wizard of Oz, and it would fail miserably, because he would forget it pretty quickly.

04) What is or would be 9's(Etor) favorite book?
He has no feelings, so it's pretty impossible for him to have a "favorite" anything, but if I am allowed to choose for him, I would pick The Steadfast Tin Soldier.

05) Would it make more sense for 2 (Andrew)to swear fealty to 6(Dildrem), or the other way around?
Well, I suppose it would make more sense for Andrew to swear fealty to Dildrem, although either way it makes no sense if they are both in their right minds.

06) For some reason, 5(Mortemus) is looking for a roommate. Should he share a studio apartment with (Etor)9 or with 10(Lehoi)?
Umm, Etor. For starters, he would be fascinated by him, because he has no hour glass that signifies his life span and he is so very much like the clocks he adores and surrounds himself with. Lehoi would be too annoying for him to handle.

07) 2(Andrew), 7(Difyr) and 12(Blyfra)have dinner together. Where do they go, and what do they discuss?
Umm, well, this is actually an interesting situation, considering who everyone is. Andrew would be trying to make sure that the two don't kill each other while deciding where to go. They would end up going nowhere.

08) 3(Chess) challenges 10(Lehoi) to a duel. What happens?
Lehoi runs away screaming and crying.

09) If 1(Ecilla) stole 8's(Orohitz) most precious possession, how would s/he get it back?
He more than likely wouldn't, because he would forget that it was stolen and every time he would think to look for it he would forget all over again. It would pretty much be just sad D:

10) Suggest a title for a story in which 7 (Difyr) and 12(Blyfra) both attain what they most desire.
Um, "Humanity in the Walls of Oz"? I dunno xD

11) What kind of plot device would you use if you wanted 4(Loudags) and 1(Ecilla) to work together?
Well, um, this is a complicated one to explain. I'm going to skip it :iconimhappyplz:

12) If 7(Difyr) visited you for the weekend, how would you get along?
Pretty well, actually. She's a cool dude!

13) If you could command 3(Chess) to perform any one task or service for you, what would it be?
THIS IS SO HARD :iconicryplz:

14) Does anyone on your friends list write or draw 11(Eledor)?
Umm, well no to writing, but UsagiTenshi has drawn him.

15) If 2(Andrew) had to choose sides between 4(Loudags) and 5(Mortemus), which would it be?
Mortemus, because they get along quite well. Loudags does not particularly care for Andrew.

17) If you chose a song to represent 6(Dildrem), which song would you choose?
American McGee's Alice soundtrack - Time To Die

18) 1(Ecilla), 8(Orohitz), and 12(Blyfra) are having dim sum at a Chinese restaurant. There is only one scallion pancake left, and they all reach for it at the same time. Who gets to eat it?
Probably Blyfra, because Ecilla is too nice to take the last anything and Orohitz would forget why he wanted it.

19) What might be a good pick-up line for 2(Andrew) to use on 10(Lehoi)?
Well, IF it were to ever happen, and it never would, he'd only have to say "If all the stars from heaven fell and the world was in chaos, I'd protect you straight until the end." and he'd have him.

20) What would 5(Mortemus) most likely be arrested for?
Stopping someone's time before it was supposed to, which would(kind of) fall under "Murder"

21) What is 6's(Dildrem) secret?
She's a mass murdering psychopath? But everyone knows that...

22) If 11(Eledor) and 9(Etor)were racing to a destination, who would get there first?
Eledor, only because he could disappear and reappear within a blink of an eye.

23) If you had to walk home through a bad neighborhood late at night, would you feel safer in the company of 7(Difyr) or 8(Orohitz)?
Difyr. Orohitz is strong, but forgetful. He probably would forget he was even with anyone.

24) 1(Ecilla) and 9(Etor) reluctantly team up to save the world from the threat posed by 4's(Loudags) sinister secret organization. 11(Eledor) volunteers to help them, but it is later discovered that he/she is actually a spy for 4.(Loudags) Meanwhile, 4(Loudags) has kidnapped 12(Blyfra) in an attempt to force their surrender. Following the wise advice of 5(Mortemus), they seek out 3(Chess) , who gives them what they need to complete their quest.
Wait, how is that a question a@ And none of it makes any sense!! Oh boy, this is a nice ending.

So, if anyone wants to kidnap this meme, feel free! It's actually pretty fun xD

Reasons for Silence

Journal Entry: Sat Mar 26, 2011, 12:34 PM
As all of you more than definitely know, there has been a natural catastrophe in Japan recently and there are a great many other deviants stepping up and saying something about it. Usually, I too would be saying something as well, but I have been silent. I do have a reason, and it is this: I wanted to get my facts straight before plunging you all in head first along side me.
I am honored to say that I am currently watching a deviant by the name of yuumei who was calm headed enough to set the record straight for people like myself as well as for the people jumping down each others throats because they believe that one way of helping is better than another. For those of you who want to learn more about the situation, please feel free to check out her journal to do so. Update: You can now also check out sylphielmetallium's journal to find out what you can do if you don't have the money to donate yourself.
So, in order to help as much as I can, I would like to dedicate my commissions to aiding the efforts in Japan. All profit will go to the Red Cross. Edit: When I say that, I mean you would not pay me for the commissions. You would be donating directly to the Red Cross instead of paying me at all. All you'd have to do is send me a screen capture of your receipt showing that you did donate and then I would do your commission based on the amount you donated. Since I don't have a job yet after the move, this is all that I can do. I would really appreciate your help in all of this! Thank you, and please do what you can to help Japan, even if it's just spreading the word and watching a youtube video.

Story Related Information

Journal Entry: Fri Mar 25, 2011, 9:38 PM
Edit: So, today someone made a point that a male character dressed in pink and purple makes him appear either feminine or homosexual and not at all like a Cheshire cat. Do you guys think this is an honest problem I should consider fixing or do you think I should stick with Chess's colors? I want to know your honest opinion, maybe even your first reactions to a cat-man dressed in fuchsia and purple. I know this is a random question, but I really am wondering.

Since I am closing in on the halfway point in plot, not story size, I have come to some realizations of changes that have long been in the making. I figured I'd update you all on them while the changes are being made that way you guys have a chance at input.

I'm nearing the plot halfway point and the number of pages is really growing. Based on how many I have now, over 300 and almost 400, the next half will be twice that size. Now, while I know keeping it as a single book would be more preferred, I doubt anyone here would honestly want something like a 1,000 page book. Heck, based on the rate of illiteracy, a 1,000 page book wouldn't sell. At all, really. Especially since my story is something between young adult fiction and regular adult fiction. So, I'm turning my book, Bizarre Izland, into a two to three part series. How does that sound to you guys?

So, for the longest time you all have known my story under the title "Bizarre Izland". While it isn't exactly a bad name, it isn't a good one either. So, I'm going to rename it. To be honest, it was originally just a temporary name anyways. I've put off renaming it because I didn't feel close enough to the major points for it to honestly be necessary. If that makes any sense at all, really. Anyways, I've been working on trying to find a name, and I think I've found one. How does How Many Miles is Wonderland? sound? Now, keep in mind that this would be the overall title. I still have to come up with subtitles. So it would be How Many Miles is Wonderland?:____________________. I thought it was a good title, and I was talking to UsagiTenshi on the phone not but an hour ago and she agreed, but I wanted to hear what you guys thought.

I just wanted to hear your thoughts on all of this. Also, is there any one picture in my gallery you like best? While I do have a picture titled "Bizarre Izland Cover 1" and so on, I want to hear from you guys. Maybe there's a picture that would be better suited as the cover. Heck, if it's a two or three part series, I'll be needing more than one. What do you guys think?

Thank you all again for your support and patience with me after the years of being on dA and the years I've spent on my story. I love your guys like family! Have a great day :)

Vital Organ Expoding Day

You know it's true. I had this awesome, horrific and quite macabre picture planned, almost completely done and kick arse, but I don't have the program to finish it on the computer available to me and it's not quite done, so it will be late. In the mean time, I hope this day was as easily forgotten for you as it was for me, or in the very least that it was memorable for good reasons :)

Update: The picture, as promised, was actually posted yesterday, but I didn't post it here because it didn't involve anyone from B.I. If you're still interested in seeing it, it is right here:

So, I'm gonna tell you guys a story, a very important one. It all started about a month ago. My family and I live in a house with a roommate and we paid the utilities and they paid the rent(it was $600+ for us, $500- for her, so it evened out, kind of). We couldn't pay more, she couldn't pay more, so we co-existed quite well. Once night, it was discovered that she was attempting to, literally, move out of the house without our knowledge. Basically, move out while we were sleeping and we'd never be the wiser.
So, she did move out and she paid January's rent. The next rent is not due until February 15th and we don't have the money to pay for it. Back before all of this my sister who lives in California suggested to Mom that she send for us and that we could live with her. Mom, knowing that it is for the best, said yes. So, I and arpellias are moving to California within the next couple of weeks. We've been packing and getting things situated and everything, but I just thought I'd let you all know.
Update: I'm leaving Tuesday, February 8th 2010 around 10AM. Just so you all know.
Edit: Also, as a warning for the duration of time before I leave as well as the first day or two I'm there I'm not really gonna be on at all. Just thought I'd warn you guys.

Now, for something completely unrelated, UsagiTenshi posted this in her journal and I thought it might be fun to try out. I reserve the right to say, "I'm not sure" or to say "pass" if it makes me uncomfortable or I just do not believe that it is my place to say. Basically, you comment on this journal and I will (to the best of my abilities):

1. Tell you something I've learned about you by looking at your dA page for 13 seconds.
2. Tell you which color you remind me of.
3. Tell you my first memory of you.
4. Tell you what animal you remind me of.
5. Ask you something I've always wondered about you.
6. Tell you my favorite thing about you.
7. Give you a weird nickname.
8. Tell you my honest opinion about you. Hopefully I know you well enough.....
9. Confess something to you that I didn't dare say before. <--- This is the question I reserve all rights for.
10. Challenge you to post this on your journal. that order and numeric system. Anyways, you all have a great night and sweet dreams. I need to get some stuff ready for the weekend.

Signing Out,
C. Dreams

Another test, nothing too exciting. I made a cute doodle and thought it would be a great journal skin, so here it is. Does anyone have any idea how to make a footer? Like, one that's centered like my header? I have no clue how and I have a picture that compliments the header.

Deactivating Hacker

Journal Entry: Sun Jan 9, 2011, 11:05 AM
Okay, most of you guys have probably heard of this, but there has been a hacker or a series of hackers getting into artist's accounts and then deactivating said accounts. If you want to know more, here is an article on it and here is a journal compiling all sorts of information on the matter. Guys, please be careful. Seriously, it's getting scary. I'm pretty sure briannacherrygarcia was just hit, because she said nothing about deactivating her account and then suddenly posted a journal with the title "WHY DIDN'T YOU BELIEVE ME?" with the journal only saying "I TOLD YOU I WAS GOING TO DO IT, BUT YOU DIDN'T BELIEVE ME!" and now her account is deactivated. Edit: I have learned that she was actually hit, and more than just on here, the poor thing. If you want to learn more about what she had to go through, click here.

So, guys, if you see any cryptic messages from me and I suddenly go missing, know that I didn't do it and that I would never leave this place. I doubt it will happen to me, I'm not popular or big enough for it to happen, but who knows. It could happen to anyone. Again, be careful. I don't want to see any of you guys disappear suddenly D:!

Just in case note: I love you guys so much! You've given me so much support and enjoyment these years on here and while it's been one heck of a roller coaster, it's been one heck of a ride! Much love, dearies.

-C. Dreams

P.S. Here are some screen captures of things involving the hackers, now known as Icarus and Ethical. Now my question is whether or not there is more of them and when they will strike next. I mean, now that the handles of these guys are out, will this inspire copycat hackers to try and follow the style of these guys? All I'm gonna say is that now is not an ideal time to be a part of the dA community.

I'm Not For Sale...

Journal Entry: Fri Jan 7, 2011, 1:40 PM
"...and neither are you."

Alrighty, I'm going to start this story at the beginning. I have a job and a really nice coworker of mine has told me that if we get off the same time on any given day he'd give me a ride home. So, at one point in time we talked about dreams and goals and he mentioned that he really wants to help stop the human slave trade. I know, that last sentence sounds a little confusing, because you would think that he dreams of going back in time and doing it, but that's not the case. In fact, the slave trade is alive and thriving all over the world. Heck, I live in America and it's even in my backyard, so to speak.

There is a book by David Batstone called Not For Sale about the return of the global slave trade and how we can fight it. That same coworker lent me this book and it has been a real eye opener. If you've never heard of it, I would definitely suggest you try and get your hands on it. Think about this: How many times have you seen a young girl on the corner selling her body and thought "Why would they choose that for themselves?" How many times do you honestly know that she chose it for herself in all honesty and factuality? Yes, factuality is not a word, but ignore that for a moment, this is important. I can almost guarantee that none of you can claim that you have never thought it and/or that you knew. This is the mindset that culture is forcing on us.

There are millions of slaves being sent somewhere far from home all around the world and it's about time for us to put a stop to it. So, I think I've found something that will be a huge cause for my Awareness-Project group. I would appreciate all the help I can get, because it's not me you're really helping. It those people out there, those slaves, who you are bringing to the light and giving the justice that they can barely save the strength to dream of.
