08.12.18. Now that the Trading Post has been operating for exactly a month, we'll be making some changes in response to some problems that have arisen since it's introductions. Comments can no longer be edited after a certain amount of time, so we ask that you post ONE strudel per comment, so that you can hide the comments after it has been traded off. Posting multiple in the same comment causes confusion if you cannot hide just one strudel in particular. ALSO if your strudel is not on the masterlist, please post to the Can't find your strudel? entry on the StrudelCupboard (https://www.deviantart.com/strudelcupboard) to help us find any missing babies! We're super quick about updating!

i really really really want to see more ppl experimenting with their art, esp in the wings of fire fandom (i love u all but please. Please. stop copying realtense) so this is what i'm going to do to encourage that. what is the challenge? draw something out of your comfort zone! if you usually draw w lines, try lineless. if you usually use muted colors, try bright ones. if you usually draw standing poses, do an action pose. throw some cubism in there. go buckwild. genuinely just stretch yourself beyond your comfort zone and what is... well, 'fandom popular'; the ability to diversify your style is a strength, not a hindrance. what are the re

Now that it has been a few days, and I have drank all the alcohol in the house, and knowing that my following on here is smaller and less likely to flood me full of "god why did I post that", I'll just post this quick, hard and dirty recital of facts as an update.

The good: Chloe Rose Cat LTF arrived. She is gorgeous. Needs new eyes. Was dropped in marinara sauce first night I had her due to new kitten Bumi, which is yes, named after Aang's son from Legend of Korra. He is just as crazy as the name implies. Also adorable.

The bad: USPS can suck my non existant pecker. That is all.

The ugly:   This may be a repeat for some of you. Please bear with. My mom has been diagnosed with liver cancer. I am in no way shape or form wanting to talk about it right now.

Mom's cancer is inoperable. Chemo and radiation aren't an option due to it being on her liver, and that's what processes the radiation. It is on both lobes, so they can't cut it out. She can take a pill, but it will only slow growth, and prolong the ultimate diagnosis. The only "cure" is a liver transplant that the oncologist says has never been successful in California, because no one lives long enough to get a match. Her prognosis is 6-12 months. He thinks she's already had it at least a year, and it's already been a mini-miracle that she hasn't shown any of the symptoms as it is very aggressive and fast growing type. There is, quite literally, nothing we can do but sit back and watch and wait.

I was never any good at that. Thanks again for all the support and comments. If I don't reply, it's not that I'm not appreciative, I just can not coherently express anything but rage and grief at the moment, and anything else is beyond me.

Here is some of my recent favorites!
