I apologize, but I'm officially done with DeviantArt. The final straw is how they let people charge for captioned images. Unless a % of the money goes to the original artist (usually Japanese) and it's by permission, this is actually flagrantly unethical. At this point DeviantArt offers no means of reporting this and even going through all the hoops you possibly can in order to do so, they reject it unless you can prove you're the artist being exploited. The irony is that I was JUST coming around to accepting captioned images as an art form because I've met several young people from around the world who were learning English because they liked them so much. That kind of net good is hard to disregard. (there's this one young Japanese kid who told me he just loves how creative a lot of you are and how fun you make learning English) Nonetheless, DA's policies aren't acceptable. This site is already incredibly hostile for creative output so I'll be looking for somewhere else. I'm not

My general problem with writing is that... I'm rarely happy with my previous iterations. I get kind of boxed in by how I'm presenting my settings or stories. So from here on out, I'm going to be organizing my Heartvault writings into "presentations". You can almost think of a presentation as a reboot, but that's not quite accurate. The best way to describe a presentation is that all canon is taken off the table unless it's reintroduced, either casually or formally. But anyone writing Heartvault can use old presentations if they wanted, turning canon into a bit of a buffet. Basically in a new presentation, all stuff from a previous presentation is Schroedinger's Canon -- existing in a state of both being and not-being retconned. I'm seriously, this is all that's been holding me back. Being neurodivergent is a real pain. I *think* the Fiend Daughter Compendium is going to be the main thing I'm not including in Presentation 2. It was an experiment sharing worldbuilding details from

Not to make too big a deal of things, but I'm back. I apologize for the long hiatus. Stuff came up in real life. I just want to assure everyone that my passion for Heartvault and a desire to write it is still white blazing hot and was throughout my absence. It killed me I was bouncing between being unable to write and not having the focus when the opportunity was there. I'll try to speedrun shaking off the rust. Want something in the meantime? A friend of mine wrote a story in the Heartvault setting recently! What's neat is that... yes, the planet is alive and it can just *grab* someone like this.
