Anyone with siblings can likely verify that the most valuable and sought after position of power is the legendary “I owe you one”.  Wars have been fought, tales have been told, and numerous rug-burns have been administered in the pursuit of such power.

I remember an instance where a lady was offered a free trip to Paris. Hotel, travel, all covered. The catch being that the person contacting her was an “artist” and there was some “pigments” they wanted her to bring back with her that could only be gotten in that country.  I am not sure what crazy logic… Continue reading #1507: Lets get some shoes.

I know some folks would be like “wouldn’t his first worry be she was a shapeshifter pretending to be Wildy.” but I’m fairly certain Biggs would confidently claim no one in their right mind would want to pretend to be his sister. And that heck, most folks in their right minds wouldn’t even want to… Continue reading #1508: You think you know someone…

Seriously. If there is anything I have learned, it’s that trying to self diagnose something via the internet will likely only lead a person into panicking and coming to the wrong conclusions.  I generally go by the rule that I will never know more about a particular subject due to reading it on the internet… Continue reading #1509: Who needs to think when you have an app for that.

I think the trickiest part of writing at times is when characters have opinions about certain subjects that I know full well will run counter to opinions of some of the audience. Mainly because it never fails that someone out there is going to assume that because one of my characters feels a certain way… Continue reading #1510: Just icing on the cake.

Backgrounds and I continue to have a hostile relationship with one another.  On one hand, I cannot help but feel I am mega bad at them. On the other, I know I won’t get any better unless I keep smushing my face into them.  On the other other hand, I am a lazy creature.  On… Continue reading #1511: I AM A SUBTLE CREATURE.

I remember when I first started off doing DMFA and someone asked me if there was going to be any species divides.  In that “Cat furry chases Mouse furry” or “Dog furry is naturally against Cat furry” or “lion character chasing down gazelle character” kind of way.  Ultimately I decided against them because my terrifying… Continue reading #1512: Us and Them and Those.

#1513: But who is keeping score? published on

Hooray for background/foreground characters that will never get seen/used again!  I honestly think that is one of the reasons I dislike scenes that involve multiple characters or public places…well other than they also tend to be more work.  You end up using designs and liking them and then waving goodbye to them as they sink… Continue reading #1513: But who is keeping score?

Biggs didn’t really discover the truth to Mab’s hiding technique until years later.  Up until then he thought she was just really good at the game.  Which in a sense she technically was.
