Izuku: I guess I’ll just undress you in my hea-

Self Motivation

I tend to get very frustrated when I’m checking my email/AO3/ffn/tumblr account every few hours for updates/kudos/new comments/reblogs/likes etc.

That’s why I need some cheering up, especially now that I haven’t written in nearly a week at all.

These are the stats of my fic as of today (Wednesday, Feb 22nd)

157 Kudos already!! Yay!! :)
Half of the comments are my answers, but that still makes roughly 150 comments on AO3! That’s incredible! Then there are 33 fic subscriptions, which is still 50 less than on ‘Instinct’, but I guess Major Character Death and such a lengthy fic isn’t for everyone ^^ Given the circumstances, I think the numbers are amazing!

A higher hit rate and over 100 reviews on ffn! Wow!

Then there are people who send me asks and private messages about the fic, and that’s another thing that makes me incredibly happy!

Not to forget, the ten or so people who always like/reblog my chapters on tumblr!

There are 75 wonderful people following this blog, which is far more than I ever thought I’d get on a blog that is dedicated to only one fic!

Thank you all for your support & I love you all <33

I love my story, I love to think about the plot and imagine all the scenes, I love to write it, and I love to see the reader’s reactions every week. That’s what I’m writing and posting for. It makes me happy and that’s all that counts. Keep doing what makes you happy!

Augh, so I thought I must’ve just slept funny on my arm two nights ago, but I guess all the skidding around my bike was doing day before yesterday (lots of loose gravel on the trails) meant I was yanking the handlebars around to try and correct, and I guess this is an old injury flaring up, which is apparently a thing that happens now. At least it’s just the one arm.

Don’t break both arms at the elbows, kids. It’s still annoying years later.

Decided to post some of my real art that isn’t fandom related to my blog, just to see what would happen if I posted something personal. Such a game changer. So, here are some portrait studies for this evening…

I do take requests if I feel like it and I’m dying for things to draw so please put some in my ask box!!

ooc :: i love how gil took up being a mage / caster just to make a jab at the grand caster / solomon. it is a mockery of sorts but he’s also here to prove that there’s nothing people can’t do if they put their mind to it. 

Sorry for being mostly inactive yesterday, but I’ve been working on sprucing up the blog and editing the HTML code all day!  Unfortunately, I think I’m going to have to rewrite my code from the ground up because I can’t get anything to work the way I want to anymore!  Stupid tumblr code update. TT^TT

However!  I did manage to get one thing to work; the blog now has page numbers!  Yay pagination!  You can scroll to the bottom of the blog and there are a row of numbers you can use to jump from page to page!  As of writing this, there are 43 pages!

Ever since yesterday, I’ve had a clear image in my head of what I want Yurza’s son to look like. 

I may add some more stuff to him (depending on whether I actually get around to making a proper pic for him/name him lol) but he is a volcano god who now, very much against his will, resides underneath the ocean. He is one of Yurza’s children, her oldest son, and is thus known by the orc people and those who worship him as ‘Eldest Brother’ or ‘Honored Brother’. 

a redraw of this year old thing!! had a lot of fun w this one despite having to kick my own ass for a whole month in order to actually finish it
