It's me, your very favorite bat, your best tournament staff member, your mysterious black market organ dealer.

Despite saying I would retire after Xotiathon, I've been toying with the idea of doing another OCT, one whose roots are in an idea I had before I hosted my first tournament (excepting Tourist Trap, which I inherited leadership of but did not create).

It's a fantasy OCT whose name would be Labyrinth, which gives you some idea of the setting. My main stumbling block in doing it would be getting judges who had the experience and reliability I needed, because I'm a picky soul. 

That aside, right now I am extremely tight on money because to make a long story short, this summer has been a financial blow to me and my mom for reasons including but not limited to: our car died out of nowhere and we spent a month without it before we got it back yesterday, I was out of work for much of the same time period and while I'm employed again, it's temporary since I'm only replacing someone on medical leave and I have no idea how long it will last.

Mom has a second job now, so that will help, but as our rent is still higher than a pack of college students at 4:20, we're still in about as good shape as a lizard in a snowstorm.

Things will get better! Even if I work only this week in my temp job, mom's second job will help, and I will find more work. But it would be great if I had a little more cashflow so I can obtain food and garbage bags and whatnot.

So while I understand most people are also Quite Broke, if anyone would like to toss me five dollars to draw them something like:  Ready to Defend by ChimericMachinations or  Breath of Summer by ChimericMachinations

I would be happy to! I can also Write Things for the same amount of cash, though more examples of that can be found on my tumblr. I'm more than happy to write things for your characters, fandom works, just about anything as long as it's not nsfw, because asking me to write nsfw is like trying to ask Michael Bay to make a movie where things don't explode at the slightest provocation. 

If you're interested in buying something from me, feel free to note me on dA or hit me up on discord! My account name is Cloudbat, and my number is #2416.

I stared at this for a while before realizing it was Nihirri.

Hi, Lsyn, how're you doing.
Lsyn Featured By Owner Jun 21, 2018  Hobbyist General Artist
I don't draw often ad I did before, sorry.
Hm, quite busy with work. And you?
ChimericMachinations Featured By Owner Jun 21, 2018  Hobbyist General Artist
oh, no, sorry, that wasn't meant to be an insult or anything; I was just genuinely confused and then I realized I knew that delightful bird-face.

Amusingly, the same. I just started a new office job and it eats nine hours of my day now but it's fine, I just need to make money while I figure out how to get work in my field (history).

I wanted to draw you something and it didn't happen but I didn't want you to think I forgot to wish you a happy birthday, so here's a very late happy birthday.

You're forgiven because I didn't know there were that many cake emojis in the world and they're adorable.

I did have a very good day, it was nice.
