...Oh man...

Journal Entry: Sat May 31, 2014, 7:00 AM


*QUICK EDIT 26/07* I'm currently halfway through my vacation at Lago de Garda (or, as you all might know it, the Garda Lake in Italy) and the weather so far has been bad-bad-good-bad-GREAT-thunderstormalldayfuckthisshit.  I'm typing my newest TF2 story (currently all else is on hiatus, 'm sorry, I wanna get ahead in this story) and loving the vacation.  If I won't weigh 90kg by the time I'm back, though, I'll probably have a tapeworm or something because lord the food.  THE FOOD.  They have the best pastas in the world here, I swear to god.  Photos forthcoming, they're all on my cellphone.  Gabriel Dantan is making me sweat and those thunderstorms are making me worry.  Peace and love and happiness to all of you and see you in half a week. ***

...I don't do a lot of stuff anymore lately, especially writing-wise, and for that I feel sorry...  But it's with good reason!  I'm re-reading my first lengthy original story (titled 'Last stop' for the time being, I might remedy that title) for the first time, trying to work out the kinks and get it ready to be proofread before sending it to publishers far and wide!  (Mostly far - I didn't write in my maternal language, so I'll have to go at least overseas with the story for it to have any chance at getting published).  The process is: write, re-read, edit, re-read edit 1, edit again, have proof-read and critiqued, edit one last time, briefly re-read myself to see if it works for me (and edit if necessary), send to publishers.  It's a lot of work, but I want this to be perfect.   So if you don't see me often, or if you do see me and I seem preoccupied, that's probably why.

My head is a barrel of plot twists and turns-of-phrase right now.

Also, since I hope to complete this phase at least by the end of the summer vacation (and by that I mean MY summer vacation, so end of July), I'll already be amassing candidates for the position of proofreader.

If you wish to be a proofreader, you have to:
- be a native speaker of English (I do not accept non-native speakers, no matter how great your level of English is.  I'm sorry, but as a non-native speaker with a level that's near-native, I know first-hand that NOTHING beats native speakers' control of their mother tongue)
- be willing to read a 300+ book in max. 1 month's time, commenting included.
- be willing to sign a confidentiality agreement.  I am NOT risking ANYTHING with this story, so no matter how close or not close we are, if you're not willing to officially swear secrecy on every aspect of this story with genuine penalties imposed on breaching that secrecy, you're not getting the first word of this story.

That said, what's in it for you?
- a reward: 6 months' premium membership here on DA plus a twenty dollar gift, a mention in my book's dedication (for fellow writers, this means free publicity!) as well as on social media (I'm on tumblr, facebook, twitter, patreon, etc etc) and first pick when the next section of my story is up for proofreading.
- my neverending gratitude
- the chance to read my story before it's even published.  I mean, think about it.  My story could be nothing, but it might be big, and then you'd be able to say 'I proofread that!' :D

(Yeah, the last one sounds like a joke, doesn't it?  But hey, if you like my stories, there's a slim chance others'll like my original story...)

Art... by prosaix :iconmishacollins-plz: I am a Misha Minion and avid Mishappreciator.

L4d-francis-pagebuddy by tattiOsala Francis is my inner badass.

I am a woman of not many talents. I love to write - it's my life and joy - and I love working with DAZ Studio making really horrendously stupid renders of things no one ever looks at anyways. I love my watchers because let's face it, they're awesome in their own special ways, all of them. ...I am a wiseass, I have no humor and I am completely and utterly random.

:iconamongststars: Finished works: 8 'long' stories (more than 1 chapter) and 38 short stories :iconamongststars:

Current Residence: Brasschaat, Belgium
Favourite genre of music: Happy Hardcore!
Favourite photographer: TonyCorey (beware: nude photography!)

Ask Duran, my favourite fighter!
Artistic-only blog - no freaky fandom posts, random reblogs and personal problems there.

My army of Ellises:
TakeNoShit - aka 'Ayliss'
:iconhorsecanada9: - aka 'my pervy dominant!Ellis' + Ellis to my Keith + Tony to my Pepper + Sam and Cas to my Dean + Rainbow Dash to my Applejack (my waifuu and the sweetest gal)
:iconellislash: - aka 'my fireball engineer'
:iconxcheckmate:
:iconjinx-lin: - aka 'dat Ellis'
:iconcyxfliite:
:iconphantomoftheserpents: - Ellis to my Nick to my Ellis
:iconunhingedhick: - aka 'my hot Ellis' (and actually Ellis) (and the husband to my Nick wooooo yeah! :iconloveyouplz:) + the greatest Cas that ever was and ever shall be

And then there's...
:icontrossidevil: - Castiel to my Dean / supports JarrodXGabriel / amazing person
:iconjonaxdrayda: - loves my hugs, the Witch Hunter to my Smoker-rificness, and teases me in Minecraft
:iconthenaitsyrk: - Sass-tiel and just plain amazing dude. With a trenchcoat. And a face stuck in 'bewildered' mode.
:iconnayoh: - sweet like sugar and shining like a constellation.
:iconanonymk: - Trev-tastic man that is the platonic and utterly brotherly love of my life :D

Shade's Faves

:iconhorsecanada9:
My darling sweet wonderful and amazing pervy Ellis waifuu - but that isn't the sole reason she's in here. She is a wonderful artist, inspired and inspiring, drawing from My Little Pony to Left 4 Dead 2, with a dash of original art here and there. Her style is beautiful - DEFINITELY worth a look!!

:iconunhingedhick:
Ellis is an amazing guy, a great roleplayer (we roleplay Nellis together, and it's always amazing, no matter how short or long we explore a specific setting) and - honestly - one of the most talented artists I've come across to date. I mean it, his art... has this kind of darker edge, even his more recent MLP stuff, but it's invariably amazing. (Not to mention I've seen him draw and he's just... he seems to draw the art out of the empty paper. I love watching him create, it's wondrous, almost magical) Go give his gallery a look!!

Zphal
An amazing artist, both as a writer and drawing-wise. A constant inspiration and motivation for me, driving me to be better, try more, and never to be untrue to what I want to do. The art kind of speaks for itself, so go take a look! I can guarantee you'll be hooked - I know I was!

:iconellislash:
Sweet, wonderful, with talents in so many fields I cannot even enumerate all of them! She's amazing as a writer, unparallelled in GMod and SFM, and her drawings are just wonderful! Worth a look any day!

:iconladyredms:
'Blind Man's Bluff' - that kind of says it all. A series so wonderfully well-written, so suspenseful, filled with emotions and action and... well, everything a reader craves, including the things you didn't even KNOW you craved. Start reading right away!

:iconinvadersaph:
An absolute wizard with GMod. She is able to set an atmosphere so well that it transcends the picture and oozes out of the screen. And her drawings rock as well, simple and beautiful... All in all, her work is wonderful and her gallery certainly merits a visit!

:iconalexkingofthedamned:
Cosplayer, writer, maker of fine drawings, and allround artist extraordinaire, it seems every day I find out more there is to like about him. It is impossible to describe him in a few words, so I'm not even going to try, afraid as I am of not doing him justice. Go pay his gallery a visit and find out for yourself just how versatile an artist he is!

:iconkytri:
Artist of '(This Is) The Worst Idea You Ever Had' (or TWIYEH for short) and 'Sin Pararse' - her style is simple yet effective, her story is compelling and her characters are so easy to identify with. A wonderful webcomic artist with great talent and skill!

:iconorinocou:
The artist behind the FF6 comic, an appreciator of chickens, cooking, and an allround wonderful artist, her gallery will surprise and entertain you, and you'll always get a smile on your face when you see her art, as the style is simply charming.

:iconredheadligeia:
Writer of 'Snowbowl', which is just the greatest, most suspenseful and breathtaking Team Fortress 2 story you will ever read - you should actually stop reading here and go read it right away, no dawdling!

:D You had me at 'Unlike all the other Robin Hoods, I can speak with an English accent.'

...Just kidding, you had me the moment you climbed onto the stage. ;p

I have to agree with the announcer guy, though, you guys have amazing swordmanship! :happydance:
