Piercing the Swordsman, Chapter 4

One of the next times he arrived, the martial artist looked pensive. “Having a good day?” Snugglemagne asked. “Actually, yes, I have. May not even need any attention today,” he joked. “Oh well, I’m glad to hear that, I guess,” even though he wasn’t glad to hear it. The king laughed weakly. No point in concealing his disappointment, right? Picking up on that, the cat asked, “You don’t want a break, maybe?” he smiled, “I haven’t been working you too hard?” The king drew himself up in mock-affront. “I don’t work out furiously just to be put off by kneading the strongest being in Pure Heart Valley.” Mao laughed. “I mean, you’re not kneading any magic. That’s where most of my strength comes from. The muscles themselves shouldn’t be much trouble.” He rubbed his chin speculatively. “Wouldn’t it take much more doing for you to massage someone more physically imposing like yourself?” If he was perfectly honest, the king had gotten hand cramps occasionally.

I believe we are in dire need of Separation of Corporation and State.

Alliteration Station is your destination should you decide to enter my account nation.

My username, tagline, and avatar all correspond to my (real life) initials "M. S." Turned counterclockwise, the 'M" looks like the Greek Sigma, coincidentally corresponding to "S" in our Semetic/Latin alphabet (in math, used as summation) and the actual "S" looks like a lemniscate (infinity symbol). Thus, Sum of Infinity. :lol:

Fun facts: the websites Ethical Ocean (responsibly sourced fashion) and Terracycle (upcycling otherwise un-recyclable things, sourced from average participants like you!) both have icons that resemble the second "S" symbol.

As for my ID pic . . . once upon a time I was working towards becoming a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine. Now, though, I am shifting focus to a bachelor's in environmental science after I get a two or three year nursing degree. I've kept the design because I like it. My "robe" is actually a lab coat and if you look at the staff, the shapes look like the letters "DVM"- a play off of the veterinary symbol (you know, the Caduceus with a snake twined around a staff). I've now met a handful of herbalists and want to explore this more "traditional" medicine as well, outside of formal schooling. Vegetable gardening is your own personal preventative healthcare. ;)

Maybe one day I'll work up enough narcissism to actually finish and polish this next version of my ID: menollysagittaria.deviantart.c…

But, I do like both of them. Hm. Maybe I'll let my Watchers vote on which one they like better.

Purple Palazzo Pants for the win!!! They have all the flowy-ness of a skirt without worrying about crossing legs or showing something you don't want to. Haha. And yes, I do have some like this IRL. They're a bit warmer purple, though.

Current Residence: Sol's third planet
Favourite genre of music: A cappella, handbells, full orchestra. Spanish music. Lyrics are the main factor for rating other songs.
Favourite style of art: Does this mean favorite kind to make or to look at? XD
Favourite artist: My mother. sta.sh/0309ghxbo32 Disclaimer: I am human, and subject to bias.
Also olafpriol, the artist behind the webcomic "The Property of Hate." See my favorites folder for it. You'll have to go to their site to get updates, as I don't think they're very active here anymore.WORTH IT tho. If you liked The Neverending Story or anything with a dreamlike quality you're going to flip over this.
Operating System: A brain. And what an amazing "system" it is. Seriously. Think about it ;-)
Skin of choice: A skin thick enough to weather troubles, but not so thick that I cannot feel.
Favourite cartoon character: Toph Bei Fong, Ty Lee, and Aang <3 (and Captain Planet, heh) Does Asgore count as a cartoon?

And here is a short story I wrote about an owl spirit:

Team Edward?

Team Jacob?

Apparently a third team has formed, abandoning their previous (lost) cause.

Prepare for trouble! make it double!
To protect the world from Vampiration...
To ignore all Werewolves within our nation...
To announce the evils of Bella's love...
To extend our cause to the stars above!
......Jesse! James!
Team Rocket blasts off to thwart Twilight!
Though the Wolves and Vampires bite bite bite!
Meowth, that's right!


(Didn't you get the memo? They are no longer called
"Mary Sues." Now they're "Meyer Stephs.")

MetellaStella, hey do you wanna check out my art?

hey, can you do a jellyfish icon please? I liked your fox icon and I've tried looking for free jellyfish icons but there are none and if there are, other users are using them. I seen requests are open. if you don't mind that is. 
MetellaStellaHobbyist Traditional Artist
Since I've posted those, I no longer have access to Gimp. However, I could most likely make a pixel icon on my iPad. So, you're OK with the 100 P price? 
no I don't think so 
MetellaStellaHobbyist Traditional Artist
Did you want to bargain for a lower price, then?
