<3 <3 <3
Unfortunately, my scanner decided to putz out on me. Just a long list of computer issues this week. So - Crappy photo to just respond, since this has been done for over a week. ;_;
Also, you’re wonderful. ;_;
So, I’m slowly making it through the sketch prompts. If you sent me one, worry not! I’ll get to it. ^^ But last call is through tomorrow (Sunday, Aug. 10) night. After that, prompts will be closed (So I can get back to PiP, and some original work that’s been collecting dust the past few weeks).
keeptheearthbelowff said: I love your sketch prompt idea! I'm not sure if this is a good candidate, but here's something I've always wanted to see: Hermione going to Australia at the end of book 7 to retrieve her parents and restore their memories (can this be done? I really hope so) -- with Ron in tow. That's four characters total, so ... maybe either just H and her parents, or H and R about to knock on the door?
"Come on Hermione. I know for a FACT that I’m dating the smartest Witch of our age."

So, I’m in a bit of a funk, and am hoping some of you might help poke the bear and get me moving again. Since I follow a ridiculous amount of fanfic authors on here, I’m taking a page from your books.
SEND ME A PROMPT TO SKETCH.
Here are the rules ;
- It must be of the following - Sherlock, Harry Potter, or Hunger Games.
- You must send me at minimum of 1 line of text, at most one paragraph. (This can come from a favorite fanfic, an original idea, a funny turn of phrase, etc.)
- 3 characters involved at most.
I’ll do my own fun little take on whatever is sent, and post it here within the week (hopefully). I can’t guarantee I’ll get to yours, but if I get more prompts then I can handle, I may just keep working on them and update them randomly.
It may just help me bring this little tumblr back to life….
Send all to my ask box!
I was tagged by the super awesome keeptheearthbelowff!
Rules: In a text post, list ten books that have stayed with you in some way. Don’t take but a few minutes, and don’t think too hard — they don’t have to be the “right” or “great” works, just the ones that have touched you. Tag ten friends, including me, so I’ll see.
In no particuliar order….
- The Harry Potter series. Why? WORLDBUILDING 101.
- The Aubrey-Maturin Series by Patrick O’Brian (Also known as the Master and Commander Novels). Again. Worldbuilding, but in a completely different sense. The ridiculous and amazing reference in these novels is mindblowing. That. And if you like the new series Crossbones, it’s totally inspired by Maturin.
- The Sandman Series, By Neil Gaiman and Various artists. A must read. It covers so many social issues and theological concepts and basically is a giant box of the grey area. And it’s wonderful, and thought provoking, and yes.
- Angela’s Ashes by Frank McCourt. I read this when I was 15, and I still think of how deeply it affected me.
- The Arrival, By Shaun Tan. Mindblowing. A wonderful example that not all stories need words.
- Bluebeard, Kurt Vonnegut. I read this in College, and really need to find my old copy and read it again. It kind of sneaks up on you, with how much it makes you think….
- Star Trek TNG novels. I spent a good part of my early teens (Starting around 10-11 years old) reading these. I never read young adult. I was handed a book by my father, and found an encyclopedia on our bookshelf, and went from there. So alot of the YA novels are a bit difficult for me to bite into… Because I never had that ‘awkward reading’ stage. I went straight into very well written sci-fi, with amazing vocabulary, and well written characters.
- Howl’s Moving Castle, by Diana Wynne Jones. Because I really want to understand how Miyazaki wrote his script from this…. Great book & characters. The snark, oh the snark!
- Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. Lesson learned. Not all good things go together. *shudder*
- The Hunger Games Trilogy. I blame this on the absolutely excellent fanfiction out there, that made me read the book a second time, and pick up on all the little things I overlooked the first time. PTSD / Depression / Anxiety in a main character (that can be read in a believable way) is rare.
So, I’ve barely been able to pop my ahead above my workload in the past 2 weeks, so I’m not going to tag anyone, since I probably won’t catch their reply… But everyone should do this just for fun, so you can try and remember why books stuck with you, and how the continue to influence you!
