- Really, I’ve seriously needed a journal update like yesterday, last week, last month! Now you see, Megan. This laziness of yours is precisely why you can’t keep a diary!
It’s not that I don’t have a lot on my mind. Truth be told, I could probably talk your damn ears off if you let me. I’m just very bad when it comes down to grouping all those thoughts together into a text I can share online w/ all of you. I’m sure I’m not alone. Someone, somewhere out there in DA land has got to be sharing that same problem.
Aside from that, it’s been a sad January so far. Not even hardly 3 weeks into 2016 and look at the names we’ve lost! David Bowie ...Alan Rickman, too! As an 80's child, I have a tad more sting for Bowie’s loss, but not by very much. Not much at all. The irony between Bowie and Rickman though, man. They both were 69, both well known British exports, and both have cancer to blame for our sorrow. Very sad. We seem to have reached the age where life stops giving us things and starts taking them away, to quote Indiana Jones. How very true. You suppose that’s why we cling to nostalgia? (You know it is) Something fond and wonderful that we loved and cherished that we can go back to any time we want to ...an escape back to when we don’t recall hearing quite as so many goodbyes.
Alright. Couple updates to share, but first the one that I am all but BURSTING
at the seams to share. I finally heard from Addie. I’m so, so very happy. It’s been a good 7 years at least and that’s just tragic to have to say if it wasn’t so perfectly honest. I know most of you right now are going “Who?” but if you’re a Transfan --more specifically a Metatisic fan-- Addie’s the one who was my partner-in-crime on the restoration efforts on that one. I know the saga would never have never seen the light of day on the web had it not been for her. Truly, I’m not kidding. That’s why new updates had stalled. I wasn’t going to do it without her. My morals just wouldn’t let me do that.
Speaking of irony, I learned that our health situations were rather identical sounding. We both got hit with our crisises within months of each other it seems. I really don’t want to go and pull all that unhappiness back out of the closet again. It’s over. We’re moving on. Talking to her, I made a remark describing the whole ordeal as like ‘emotional fatality’ If it wasn’t the death of a loved one, it was another surgery. Sometimes you just can’t seem to cope. I learned that Addie spent a great deal of time in and out of the hospital and back again. I’m just glad she’s well — that we both are.
There *are* new additions of the Metatisic saga
going up this week. They’re not new in the meaning that we’ve jumped right on it again. I’ve actually had these pieces for awhile now, but I had stopped putting them up when we lost track of each other as a means to delay running out of chapters for y’all to read. I apologize for that, but I know you can understand.
And I’ve updated those new additions to the banner/chapter tab:
Do you guys know that Decepticon turned 30 over the holidays?! He and Blizzard, both! THIRTY!
Christ, I’m old *lol*
Next on the list, all you ‘Back To The Future’
fans. I have finished the inks on the illustrations I did for the IDW comic’s Manhattan Project story arc. That should also be going up here this week.
And lastly ... HAPPY 10th DEVIANTART BIRTHDAY TO ME!
Thank you all so much for being my fans, my friends, loving my work. That’s the reason why I just welcomed my 10th year here on DeviantART! ~Shinju
