Super Llama: Llamas are awesome! (36)
My Bio
Note: Lulu's Garden by cirruscastle was painted by cirruscastle as fanart for my Final Fantasy X au sequel, "Love Her and Despair".

Final Fantasy sustained me through a graduate degree in mythology. I'm now gainfully (not) employed as a freelance writer, with less headspace to devote to fandom than of old.

I was a Trekkie, Blake's 7 and Who fan in the 70s and 80s, Babylon 5 and MYST/RIVEN fan in the 90s, and Tolkien fan since I was an embryo. I was playing video games like original Might & Magic and Temple of Apshai before a good number of you were born. In the mid-aughts, I discovered Final Fantasy, and have filled in the gaps in my gamer education by playing and enjoying most of them. FFX is still my favorite.

My website below is my liveblog of a year-long Final Fantasy marathon. 2013: Let's Play Final Fantasy!

Hi! I hope you don't mind; I've included one of your old fanarts (with link/credit) in my reposted version of Love Her and Despair, edited/revised ten years after I originally posted it. 

Not sure if this link will work, but: 
chapter with your art: auronlu.dreamwidth.org/279193.…
chapter 1 of "remastered" edition:  auronlu.dreamwidth.org/272194.…

Thanks so much!

This is a shameless plug, except not because it's for a friend who doesn't know I'm doing it (don't tell her!) — remember that Final Fantasy X graphic novel, Guardian, retelling FFX from Lulu's point of view?

DippyWerewolf is juuuuust about to post the last page this coming weekend. She's worked on it for six and a half years. I'm so proud of her, and I'm also worried she's gonna feel bummed when it's over, because it's taken so long that fandom has moved on.

Anyway, I noticed you were one of the readers who enjoyed it midway through, and I think you might enjoy it to the end, and I know she'd enjoy hearing from a few readers. So:

Guardian: A Final Fantasy Graphic Novel

And sorry for poking. But, yeah. Let's feed the good artists with feedback. They give us so much.

ARGH. I tried submitting a Final Fantasy X graphic novel (not mine, it's by DippyWerewolf ) to the right folder, but I slipped and submitted to the FFI folder by accident. 

I apologize for being an idiot. But this is a heck of a graphic novel, and the artist is posting the last page next Sunday, and I think she deserves all kinds of recognition (or, better still, readers!) for creating something AMAZEBALLS for Final Fantasy fans.

Because dang. It's basically 222 pages of gorgeous Final Fantasy X fanart in full color. 
Thanks! Still not quite confident enough to avoid a little tracing for the undersketch, but anyway, used here as pose ref.
