Alright, so at this point I've essentially been absent from the entire internet for a year.
Really, the whole thing. Not a single community, nor forum, nor blog. I've barely even looked at DA. And every time I did log in, I looked at that pile of comments and notes building up at the top of the page, and went and ran away. Life's been keeping me really busy- I planned out a whole month long vacation to Japan, saved up the money working full time, started learning the language, and then had to cancel due to the quake. I feel pretty bummed about that, and even worse about everything the country's going through right now.
I'm really sorry to everyone who's commented or favorited without a comment in return, I'm going through all of them now and it's really making me smile to see all of them.
For anyone who I know IRL, I'll probably be at Anime North this year, so drop me a note if you'll be there too! To all my Exalted friends, I'm just now reaching the end of a year-long Exalted campaign, so I'll really have to update this account with some pictures from that. I look forwards to browsing all the other Exalted artists I follow too, and seeing what you've been up to (especially once I'm done this game- the ST's running Return of the Scarlet Empress and has asked us not to read spoilers, another reason I've been gone.)
So... if anyone's still reading this little corner of DA, hello again. I'm so sorry for vanishing.
