Ghost Draws A Monster

So for spurious AU reasons I’m not getting into, and random interest, I decided to create a monster-creature-being. Thought I’d post up my thought process stuff, and the sketches, all in one place. Everything drawn in Gimp, except for the stuff with text, which was in MSPaint. cw: body horror? below the cut.

February Fic Recs, 2018

On February 10th, 11th, and 12th, you’re invited to rec your favourite fics, from the all time faves to the WIPs you’re currently enjoying.

I went through my bookmarks on ao3 from 2017 and picked out some fics.
Most of these aren’t Yogs/Hats, because I wanted to showcase fics outside of that fandom as well.  There are lots and lots that I’m certain I’ve forgotten. If you’ve written in the same fandom I do- thank you for sharing your work. I hope to see more in the coming year, but if not, you and your work are still appreciated all the same. So, thanks!

The fandoms I’m actively reading in are Yogs/Hats and Critical Role. But I read anything that interests me in pretty much any other fandom, whether I’ve seen content from it or not. Find something you think I’d like? Feel free to rec me it down below, or on Discord or something.

Fics are sorted alphabetically by title. Summaries are italicized, and my comments are in parentheses. Archive Warnings will be listed where applicable, otherwise, there are none. Mind the tags, and happy reading ^^!

(Edit: fixed links, sorry!)

Hello again,

College is once again keeping me very busy (read: stressed out to hell), so apologies for the null posting these past few months. Adjusting is, as always, a challenge.

A month has passed since the polls have been up, and I’d still really appreciate it if you haven’t answered yet that you’d let me know “What would you like to see next?”

The poll is completely anonymous, takes maybe a minute or two to reply to, and only one option can be chosen so pick the one you’d like to see the most!

I want to keep the poll open as long as I can to get the most voices possible as I can…and that helps me know what fic/piece to focus on when I do finally get the chance to work on something! It’s great motivation ^^!

So if you haven’t checked that poll out yet, please do so, it’d mean a lot to me.

Thanks!

I’m curious, and though my posting has been null (I’m back in college, atm! sorry :/!)
this blog still gets some decent traffic.

So, I was hoping you might take the time to answer a quick poll? Just to let me know what you want to see in the future- what you’d like me to work on in the coming months. My free time to write has been narrowed down a lot, and some direction would be nice if you’d all like to provide input.

Once up for a couple weeks or so, or maybe a month (depends how long I remember to keep it/check it) I’ll examine the data and go from there. Depending what the result is, I might ask another poll or post something letting you know what I’ve decided to focus the majority of my writing time on.

Don’t know what the poll options are referencing? Check out my ao3 or around this blog (links on the side bar and above) or ask (down in the comments below).

Now, you can only vote once on the first poll, so choose wisely, and choose whatever you’d like to see- I’ll write any, and regardless of result I’ll probably write at least a couple of these. This just gives me a good idea of what to prioritize. Gotta give the people what they want, right :P?

Anyway!

This strawpoll is about “What would you like to see next?” regarding my fic writing in the yogs/hats fandom.

If you only answer that one, that’s fine by me- the other one is less important.

This second strawpoll is about “What fandom do you/would you read fic by me in?”. You can select multiple options on this one. If you do/would read “all of the above” don’t select all the options individually, just select the option that says, “All of Them”. This doesn’t necessarily have to include/exclude the “Other” option. You can select “Other” if there’s another fandom that I’m not thinking of that you’re like, “Ghost likes/would like this and would write for this and I would read that” or something along those lines, or if I’ve forgotten something, or if nothing else applies but whatever, etc.

Thanks for taking the time to answer! I appreciate it ^^.

Ugh, I woke up (yes, very late, at the end of the day) to all the political garbage and discriminatory shit continuing this week and

my heart is heavy and angry and hurt and sad

and I feel powerless. I wish I could hug each of my trans friends and followers. I wish I could give you some sort of support that would make things less shit.

I don’t know how.

And I know it’s not much, but all of you matter to me. I don’t care what your identity is or what the rest of the world thinks you are. To me, you are important, and you matter. Your identity is valid. You are valid.

And I know this world feels hopeless right now- it feels hopeless to me too.

But I just want you to know that I care. It’s not much, I know. But it’s something.
