I'm still struggling with a dry period, especially with writing. I had an idea of where I wanted to go with Last Ones Alive, but I've been rethinking that. The introduction of Freya is part of that. She could end up being an addition to where the story was going, or she may be a complete change in direction. There are some things I know will be in either way, and I may reveal some of those. That would include some background on what has been going on in New York and revisiting Laine at the mall.
As for other writing, I'm out of ideas for ME fan fiction, except for the Other Worlds crossover. I'm not sure how much time I'll put into that right now. I'm about a third of the way through my re-read of The Dark Tower books (plus certain closely related books). As part of that re-read, I just finished The Talisman. There's a bit of history mentioned there that would be interesting to explore (not Jack Sawyer related). But my main writing focus is Last Ones Alive, it just needs to simmer some more.
As for Daz, I feel like I've hit a wall creatively because of lack of skill. So, I'm looking to expand that skill set. I plan on working it from both sides, both rendering and post-work. The most recent render shows a touch more post-work than usual (the "magic effect"). I'm still somewhat limited on the render side by my PC (not enough RAM for a complicated scene). So I may try to render layers and put them together in Photoshop.
All of this is to say my output may slow down a bit for a while. But the goal would be for higher quality, or at least more complex, pieces.
Let me end by saying thank you to everyone who has viewed, favorited, and/or commented on deviations. I appreciate your support.
