2015 Profile Photo by OgawaBurukku 2015 Profile Photo by OgawaBurukku
I realized the other day that all my profile photos are like five years old... I gained a ton of weight last year from the stress of Hell Year (like... 10 kg, which is, uh... 22 lbs). I've already lost half of that weight this year, but I still don't look like I used to (and my hair is short, and I'm, like, older now...) so yeah. New photo. Now when people look for me at cons they will actually know what to look for, haha. And look, my graphic novel! Wee!

I am either going to be wearing a cartoon/anime shirt, probably something with magical girls, or a band shirt. That's pretty much the only thing I wear. Ever. :p

I added a dumb frame because I can.

Aww, heh. I was expecting everyone to be like "Meh, we all gain weight as we get older" but people have been a little more flattering than I expected @_@
I'm still me, there's just a little more of me, haha. Less hair than the last photo, though.

Hahaha I was still thinking of you with red hair XDD (I have photographic memory, so...faces are somewhat easy >.>) That was probably YEARS ago, oops. But hurray for updated profiles! :la:

Also I got your book in the mail! It's sho pweetty <3 However this  WHUT was my entire reaction to the side story. XD I did like the meaning behind their names though, mwehehehehehehe.

I have only had red hair twice in my whole life, haha. I like my natural hair color so I never dye it, other than those two times. Geez, yeah, how many years ago was that... 2009 maybe? So like seven years. I wanted to update my profile and include my book in it, too, so yup, time for a change. I might update it again if I can get a good picture of me selling my books at one of the last three cons (where I should have a really badass banner by then).

The side story was mad crazy, yeah XD And raunchy. Very naughty but that's what made it so fun to draw. I realized half my jokes would not get noticed but I just had fun with it. Good catch on the names! You probably didn't catch it since you got the English version without the kanji in their names, but their last names for that story include both a reference to their magical girl forms in that story (which is what you probably caught) AND a hidden reference to their actual last names (well, that they make up, anyway) used in the canon storyline. You might get it if I write them out: Arma's last name became 桜王 and Lamia's name was 估猫 .

The next bonus story is going to be a much sweeter story about what would happen if Vesta suddenly got a cold XD

I got most of the jokes, I think. It was hard to miss the ones about beauty pageants! 8D At least you had fun with it!

I DID realize eventually their names were a reference to their magical girl forms, though it took me a while with Arma and 桜. My first meaning for it whenever I think of it is "cherry blossoms as in the flower. So I was confused as to why Arma's name was "Arma Cherry Blossom King" :XD: Then I saw her name tag and went 'oh that's why.' The  part I took it as her being leader, but now that you mention their canon names, it makes much better sense XD With Lamia, I was thinking 小猫 instead and took that for the obvious cat reference! But 估 seems to mean 'sales' instead of 'prince', so I'm lost on that one.

Awww! That sounds so cute XD I can imagine the hijinks already...

It's weird but Japanese people sometimes don't make the difference between cherry blossoms and the word "cherry" in English. I remember a lot of people trying to tell me "sakura is cherry" back before I could speak Japanese very well. 

As for Lamia, 估 means "selling price" as well as "trade, sell". It's not a word used much on its own, such as 估う or whatever it is, but it was the only "price" I could find that is also read "ko", since I was going for a "koneko" pun that also had price in it. Her name is Price, not Prince ;D

I just remembered something else that's likely confusing as well (and maybe archaic by this point in the language?): you remember Urusei Yatsura's Cherry? His real name was Sakuranbo but everyone always called him Cherry! I verified this with my dictionary and that word is referring to the /fruit/ itself. Although like you say, it may be that most times people don't make the difference, haha. Entirely possible. :nod:

Hmmm, neat-o! : D So you were trying for the Koneko pun hehe--w-whut. Lamia's name is...Price...

Sakuranbou is the word for the actual fruit itself, yeah. But in English they don't often differentiate sakura from sakuranbou. I think it's just because they don't know the word for "blossom" but they know "cherry" since it sounds pretty cute.

Yeah, Lamia gives herself the name Price when she enrolls in school. No real meaning behind it, other than it fits the naming theme for everyone else's lastnames (street names and school buildings located in Savannah historical district). King, Price, Abercorn are streets, Montgomery and Oglethorpe were campus building names (though I think they may also be street names). I only changed the scheme for aeons.

I wish I could wear tee's at work. It's definitely too muggy for blouses and business shirts.
I'm in the middle of moving, so things are a little chaotic for me. But once things settle down I hope to possibly get one of your books!

Working from home is great like that... I strip down if necessary, but I also have full control of the a/c and don't usually have to leave my house. That is one of the perks (the downside being that I am responsible for EVERYTHING, haha)

Oh cool! Good luck with the move!

I believe it. Our cats can tell that as well. If they see a suitcase, they immediately jump in and lay down because you're not allowed to leave. They even seem to scowl at us sometimes.
