"What we have here, is an extreme lack of Zusammengehörigkeitsgefühl..."
....................................


From middle-of-nowhere Kansas, USA.
No, I don't live on a "farm," but I AM surrounded by fields and we have a petting zoo... (3 cats, 3 dogs, 2 horses, 3 ducks, 2 geese, 2 rabbits, and a hell of a load of chickens)
I'm currently in college and double majoring in History and Theology.
I have a huge passion for History, if you can't tell by my story lines, especially the period of the American Revolution and the Founding, as well as world history from 1900 to 1960. World War Two and the falling action is my favorite era to research. I have too many books on Nazi-era uniforms, help.
(No. I'm not a freaking Neo-Nazi)
I'm a Traditionalist Roman Catholic who is not afraid to randomly bring up Canon #284 in conversation.

I swear I'm friendly, I'm just shy and anxiety ridden. :I

Currently have a boat load of story lines and between all of them and school work, I have a short attention span when it comes to my projects, so there's just tons of art of various characters all over my gallery.
The Damned is my special baby though, and I hope to really get working on it soon. I just... feel like I still need to research more. XP
Also quite a lot of for-the-fun-of-it concept art. >.>
I do a lot of satirical stuff and things that may be deemed "politically incorrect," and a CRAP TON of doodles involving my huge cast of clergymen. You have been warned.

C:

So um... yeah! Thanks for visiting my page! Any comment or critique on my art, or more specifically, my writing is appreciated. ~~

Heellooooo DeviantART!


I've been quiet, I know, but I've been HELLA busy. Took Holocaust, US Military History and History of the Catholic Church (II) this year and the work load from those three alone (minus two other totally useless classes why oh why did I waste my expensive freaking tuition on them??) have been kicking my butt!! Had to buy 8 extra books for term paper research as well as a boat load of primary sources and historical articles I was reading through.... Essentially, I haven't stopped writing or reading this semester! But summer is almost here!!
I'll be busy this summer as well (getting new ducks, want to work with my horse A LOT, taking a summer class, visiting friends in Texas for all of May), but I really really really want to make some substantial progress on development of The Damned and maybe.. just maybe... get some chapters written.
My Church History professor has been so amazing! He quite literally DEMANDED to read my short stories and he really loved what I had written for TD. His commentaries really just inspired me and MEGA boosted my confidence as a writer, so I need to capitalize on that and do some meaningful work. My term paper for my Holocaust class has also helped me fill in some Third Reich cultural gaps in my knowledge to help the setting feel more authentic and it gave me some ideas to patch up my plot holes.

Next year, I plan on doing a more intensive study of the Allgemeine SS and the Sicherheitspolizei to polish Chalmar's development. My college has this big shabang called "Discovery Day" where the students do in depth studies on certain subjects (literally anything they want) and then give a presentation. My counselor (the head of the History Department) really wanted me to do one this year, but I only got an idea for what I wanted to do here recently. (Originally I wanted to do an in depth study of why the movie Dunkirk SUCKS). I want to do a study on the process and difficulties of writing historical fiction, get in touch with some researchers who have worked on films or books before, showcase some bad historical films (coughDunkirkcough) and some good ones, and then use the primary example of me efforts and problems to developing Chalmar Stromann to be as true to history as I can.
SO IF THAT WORKS OUT, THAT'LL BE A TON OF FUN AND IT'LL GIVE ME AN EXCUSE TO BUY EXPENSIVE RESEARCH BOOKS THAT I WOULDN'T LET MYSELF BUY OTHERWISE, YAY GOING BROKE BECAUSE OF MY MAJOR!!


Expect a looooot of Mathis and his new Dachau buddies when I get back home and have a scanner though... I know I said I didn't like that type of fiction, but I was working on Mathis' history and got waaay too attached to some of his old (and some dead) friends from back when everything about his life sucked.




All I've really got left for this year is finals and then moving out! Got a lot of stuff in my inbox that I've been hoarding, and I promise I'll get to replying and commenting soon!

For now.... I should really sleep so that I'm not half-asleep for this paper presentation tomorrow and don't just suddenly fly off the handle and spout German.
(I do plan to spout SOME German, because it's not a Kyra-presentation if she doesn't say anything auf Deutsch.)
