My Bio
My other stuff around the web
I usually post my art to Tumblr before I post it here--my artblog is http://aiffes.tumblr.com There's more sketches and stuff there too. I'm currently collabing on a Tumblr askblog with ~kavosplz (https://www.deviantart.com/kavosplz)! It's really cool and you should all go check it out. I do post it all here eventually, but it's more fun to see it sooner and get to ask stuff! http://askadrider.tumblr.com/ ! Also there's no need to thank me for faves!

Is this the real life?

Is this just fantasy?

Caught in a landslide

No escape from reality

Look up to the skies and see

I'm just a poor boy, I need no sympathy

Because I'm easy come, easy go

Little high, little low

Anyway the wind blows, doesn't really matter to me

Mama, just killed a man

Put a gun against his head

Pulled my trigger, now he's dead

Mama, life had just begun

But now I've gone and thrown it all away

Didn't mean to make you cry

If I'm not back again this time tomorrow

Carry on, carry on, as if nothing really matters

Too late, my time has come

Sends shivers down my spine

Body's aching all the time

Goodbye everybody, I've got to go

Gotta leave you all behind and face the truth

Mama, ooh (Any way the wind blows)

I sometimes wish I'd never been born at all

I see a little silhouetto of a man

Scaramouche, Scaramouche, will you do the Fandango?

Thunderbolts and lightning, very, very frightening me

Magnifico (Oh, oh, oh, oh!)

I'm just a poor boy, nobody loves me

He's just a poor boy from a poor family

Spare him his life from this monstrosity

Easy come, easy go, will you let me go?

We will not let you go (Let him go!)

Bismillah! We will not let you go (Let him go!)

Bismillah! We will not let you go (Let me go!)

Will not let you go (Let me go!) (Never, never, never, never, never let me go!)

Will not let you go (Let me go!)

No, no, no, no, no, no, no!

Oh, mamma mia, mamma mia

Mamma mia, let me go

Beelzebub has a devil put aside for me

So you think you can stone me and spit in my eye?

So you think you can love me and leave me to die?

Oh baby, can't do this to me baby

Just gotta get out, just gotta get right out of here

Ooh yeah, ooh yeah

Nothing really matters,

Nothing really matters, nothing really matters to me

Inuyasha!  I thought it was Inuyasha!  God that was years ago!

Following you here...

Yes indeed, and yes it was. (I left a longer comment about it first but you didn't seem to want public connections of your online identities and I respect that.) I remembered some sexy Naraku/Kikyou pics :3 Quite a surprise to see we've both ended up in general fantasy/D&Dish/Tolkien-sometimes fandom!

Yes... I mostly dabble in Tolkien orcs... I have loved orcs since I was very small.  A few years ago I was trying to hunt down female orc stories in Tolkien fandom and found paltry few, so I decided to write one ;)  Now it is an epic monster fic.

I can't say I've been in a manga fandom since IY.  I remember it being exhausting at times, and I no longer have the time for that silliness.  While no fandom is without crazies, I feel like the Tolkien fandom has been pretty calm.  At least, in the circles I've run in (and I'll admit that those are limited), but then, I probably missed a big chunk of it, since I am coming in years post the movies...

I am glad you remember those Kikyo/ Naraku pics ;P

*nod* There's a lot more information on Tolkien orcs. I tend to lean towards the D&D end of things more since it's more flexible/customizable, I think literally everyone has their own homebrew, but there's not that much for orcs there, I recently made a half-orc character and wanted to find Orkish words to name him, and couldn't really find any D&D-verse wordlists so I went with a Tolkien one.

Tolkien fandom can be pretty awesome too! I dabble myself, I am also pretty into Thranduil in the new Hobbit movies (and Thranduil/Azog, shh) but I find it can be a bit..nitpicky? Like people wanting to argue EXACTLY how Tolkien meant some small detail instead of just change whatever you like as long as it's fun. (Then again it could be what parts of fandom one goes in, D&D defs has its rules lawyers.)

But I think either way we're in the same boat of just kind of making our own characters and stuff that works, it's sort of this middle ground between classic fandom which uses canon characters and original fic that uses original settings, it's flexible and inventive and I think worthy in its own right. I think there's sort of a "general fantasy fandom" that's part Tolkien, part D&D, part World of Warcraft, just generally likes elves and orcs and swords and sorcery. It's very loosely affiliated, but you see people move through it fluidly. A lot of other stuff is based on it, like the early Final Fantasy games, some anime like Record of Lodoss War, and even Western cartoons like Adventure Time.

Also I can imagine you're right about not finding many female orcs! According to some interpretations of Tolkien, I've seen it argued that they don't exist, since orcs are a created race, but Tolkien was pretty afraid of ladies existing in general. I was excited to see your focus on female orcs, I think that's really interesting and they could be tough, powerful women. (Perhaps we share a certain love of femdom? ~drow matriarchy~ just sayin~~) But I was on the orc tag on tumblr and realized orc fandom is plagued with the same problem drow fandom is--the guys look like tough warriors, the ladies have giant balloon tits and submissive body language and it's pretty much just regular male-gaze porn colored green or gray. I don't have a problem with porn--hell my stuff is secretly porn though I haven't shared most of that yet--I have a problem with BORING misogynistic porn. You draw your orc ladies like people who have lives of their own, I am down with this. Honestly "general fantasy fandom" is full of too many boring dudebro power fantasies/misogynistic sex fantasies, and could use more ladies and queer-gendered people with our vastly superior power fantasies and sex fantasies. :3

Also yeah man I burned out on Inuyasha like...five or six years ago. I had a blast there, I was just out of juice for it. I definitely swore off long-running shounen manga like that, unless they're complete and I can blow through them all at once, they do start to drag at chapter 500 or so. I haven't really strongly been in other manga fandoms, but I don't rule it out, I think it'd be cool to get into another...maybe a shorter one next time. XD
