Fun Buns
Bunny rabbits even though some are technically hares :)
The little blue gal in the bottom right is my old bun Blu who passed away last week :( Goodbye Blu you were a good rabbit. :(
Magneto's Family
Magneto is a silver-fox grandpa - pass it on :D

Clockwise from top: 

Magneto and Rogue have a baby - Charles Xavier - in the AoA timeline. I love Rogneto.

Mag's twin babies Pietro and Wanda.

Pietro and Wanda at around six?

Magneto with his granddaughters Luna Maximoff and Talia Wagner.

Characters belong to Marvel.

Art is all mine.
Where the Antelope Play
I don't get why people are so obsessed with wolves when antelope are RIGHT there :P
Antelope are amazing.
Pictured here: Oryx, gemsbok, Thomson's gazelle, impala, kudu, gerenuk, dik-dik, blackbuck, springbok, okapi, sable and pronghorn. I know the pronghorn isn't technically an antelope, but I freakin' LOVE them, so I had to draw. :D
Art is mine.
Done in felt-tipped ink pens.
Brb kids
The second much-belated piece for ShadowPhoenix… for an art trade I am doing with her. :)

These are my characters Peregrine, Griffin and Sparrowhawk. They are avian - people with both the physical characteristics of humans and birds.

Peregrine - is the eldest of the three siblings. She is bossy, impatient and a show-off. She has the body (more or less) of a 14-year-old human girl, but the silver wings of a peregrine falcon. She also has the amazing speed of a peregrine falcon, making dives fast enough to cause sonic booms. She can also manifest a gigantic pink sword that is a psionic blade - a weapon created from her mental energy. She is voiced by Ashleigh Ball. ;)

Griffin - the middle child. 12 years old. He is cunning and sly and a foil to his jock sister and shy younger brother. Griff seeks adventure beyond the small island home he and his siblings were raised on. Like his sister has falcon powers, Griff has the capabilities of an owl. He navigates primarily through sound instead of sight. (In fact, he flies better with a blindfold!) He has echolocation powers like a bat or an owl. Griffin also has taloned hands and feet (like the  mythical beast he is named after) He is voiced by Gene Mirman.

Sparrowhawk - AKA Sparrow. 9 years old and the weakest flier of all three siblings. He is mercilessly teased by his brother and sister. Sparrow can barely fly, though he has the plumage of a Sparrowhawk. But he has strong psychic/psionic capabilities and the power to read  portents/prophecies by looking down at the landscape or the sea. He is voiced by Bobby Moynihan.

I love these three little birdie kiddos. :) I can't wait to see your take on them, Shadow!

Art and characters are mine.
Nick and Legolas
A much-belated piece for the amazing ShadowPhoenix!…

This is a ref for an art trade for her. I promised to post it sooner for her, but my life recently has been absolutely nuts :P

This is Nick and his snow leopard/stag hybrid pet he named "Legolas." No connection to Lord of the Rings, unfortunately. :( Nick is four years old and thinks his new pet is a cross between a Lion and a Pegasus, so he names him "Legolas." Legolas can teleport and has other psionic powers. He also loves, loves squeaky toys :)

Sorry, Shadow, this is so late - I cannot wait to see your take on them. ;)

Did you change at all this year?

Definitely. I suppose it's hard to go thru cancer, stem cell transplant and parenting a 2-year-old WITHOUT changing. I think I am more impatient with what I consider "petty" problems ... or others complaining about "petty" things, tho I know everyone has problems and specific things that are important to them and I do need to respect that. I also worry less about what I consider "minor" things; Is the laundry caught up? Is the floor vacuumed? I am not a slob, but I definitely am not so bothered by those things as I used to be. But then again "simple" activities like playing with my toddler or cuddling with my husband are things I can't take for granted anymore. I also don't like to "go out" as much anymore - I suppose that's what comes of being sick and bedridden for so long haha. A great "vacay" is staying home, eating spaghetti and watching TV with my hubby.

Did you dye your hair?
I would have laughed at this a few years ago, but I did dye my hair purple in February. I felt like Nightcrawler from the X-Men. :D

Did you get your hair cut?
Twice. Shaved bald as a babee's butt :P I finally have some hair now and am proud of it!

Did you get good grades?
I am proud to say YES!!! As far as post-transplant patients go. My white blood cells are doing their thing!

Did you drive?
Not often, unfortunately. Again, being a post-transplant patient I was forbidden to for a while there.

Did you move at all?
I spent approximately four months, give or take, at UAB in Birmingham on the BMT Unit or the UAB Townhouses. I am beyond grateful to be home now. :)

Did you go on any vacations?
Haha four months in cancer treatment away from home is NOT what I call a vacation, tho parts of it were so bizarre I couldn't help but laugh at them. Next year, perhaps I can take a "real" vacation.


Did you meet any new friends this year?
Yes. Online and otherwise irl. I was blown away by the generosity and compassion of strangers who I now consider friends.

Did any of your friendships end?
I wouldn't say "end" exactly, but this year and its circumstances taught me to distance myself from certain people in my life.

Did you dislike anyone?
People who would say off-color things, but I would get annoyed and then shrug it off and say "meh ..."

Did you make any new enemies?

Gee, I hope not :D

Did you resolve any fights?
Again nope

Who was your closest friend?
My darling hubby and the amazing

Did you grow apart from anyone?
Yes, one very close friend in particular.

Do you have any regrets when it comes to your friendships?

Yes, I wish I had been more assertive about my own feelings/desires/needs and perhaps prevented one certain relationship from turning toxic.

Have you had your birthday yet?
Yep, August.

Pulled an all nighter?
Several in the BMT Unit and otherwise. Cancer suuuucks. :(

Drank Starbucks?
Nope. :D

Bought something(s)?
Lots and lots of vintage X-Men comic books :P

Met someone special who changed your life?
The amazing staff at UAB's BMT Unit as well as fellow cancer patients and caregivers. They are truly angels on Earth.


What are you thinking about?
Eh, this year-in-review I suppose :D

Would you get married if you could right now?
Welp, I am soooo ... :D

How did you feel when you woke up today?
Happy, energetic :)

Are you good at hiding your feelings?
Haha, not at all :D

Have you ever had a really big fight with a best friend?
Yes, recently, in fact. It changed the entire dynamic of our relationship.

Do you like to have long hair or short hair?
Short, but I would prefer it long :D

Would you be able to tell someone you love them, even if you didn't feel it?
No, of course not.

Which of your friends do you argue with the most?
My husband and my sister-in-law as far as "friendly" arguments, debating stuff, opposing views. As far as violent fighting, heavens no! :(

How many texts are in your inbox?

None, I guess.

Who was your last text message from?
My girl Koey :D

Who was the last person you rode in a car with?

Who took your profile picture?

My hub

Would you rather smile over a lie or cry over the truth?
Definitely cry over the truth... unless the "lie" was a funny prank then ... :D

What’s on your bedroom floor right now?

My bab's toys.

Do you trust people too easily?
I like to assume the best in others, I am an optimist, but I don't consider myself gullible.

Are you satisfied with what you currently have in life?
Yes!!! A loving mate, great family, great community, great pets and a darling kiddo. I am very happy. :)

Last thing you ate?
Ham-and-bean soup. Eating it right now :P

How many people are you texting?
Currently, zilch

Will you be in bed within twenty minutes?

I don't think so ...

What is the last non-alcoholic beverage you had?

Cherry Pepsi, baby

Tagging anyone who wants to do it!

Cheers to 2018!!!
