[b] [u]Bonus 2: How I fell in love… [/u] [/b]
It’s been 3 weeks since we arrived at Massak's hometown, and the contrast between the cold of the gusting snow and the warmth of the villagers still surprises me.
We are resting in our quarters, me and the wolf I’ve started to feel very close to lately. I feel him stir in his sleep as he is spooning me with one of his arms wrapped around my chest. I feel his breath stirring my neck fur and hair as I think about recent events.
When we first arrived here, the situation we found ourselves was hotter than a snake’s back slithering across the outback for days. Not everyone was happy as a kid at Christmas that we were here. We’d come here to perform a wedding ceremony for the two best mates of my fluffy wolf. Since they are both men – the kind of real men who regularly risk their lives for others – most outsiders were dead set against it. As soon as we’d a
|dont hesitate to look inside for more work ), i love to get comments and critiques to know more. also most always open to commissions hehe|
prices can be seen here
|some of the stuff i found the most interesting so far|
So, it’s 7 am and I find myself taping my fingers next to the keyboard since 5 am thinking about this journal.
Sincerely since we are here I can’t say otherwise it’s great to finally relax some and not walk only on stress through the day. I am able to work on my writing, and catch up on my reading and stuff like that.
We were at Fc and sincerely, except the fire alarm at 4 30 I the morning thanks to an idiot, it was great. It felt even different not having a table but actually wandering around without having any real planning but mine.
Allowed me to see some old friend I didn’t saw since my very first Ac and chat a bit with him. It was really great to see leo magna and vince suzukawa after all this years.
At the same time it allowed me to meet other people I talked only through emails like graveyard greg, k-9, Jan from sword and sausages. And realize they were even funnier and nice in real life than on emails.
Even spend some time talking with the gneech that didn’t had a table either, and the people at rabbit valley.
Of course they were some “pissy mc priss” too but hell if I care at this point. To them I want to tell them a few words still.
If you are jealous of me because I am happily married to zura or that my characters are happily mated, well spend some time wondering why you are alone instead. When I see leo talk about his husband with that look in his eyes, or vince talk about his husband too or being next to his husband I know I am not the odd one around. We are just happy that’s it.
If on the opposite you are jealous because of my productivity well grow a pair and “hit me” with yours in return instead of trying to give me frostbite just when I say hi to you in the morning. Believe me, you got no idea of what I been through in life, and your frostbite are just a breeze to me.
On other notes it was great to spend some time with ace of keys, spypolygon and others. Just chatting over a drink, coffee or pizza about different stuff and forgetting about other stuff.
Now I still have to iron some details with the people at Rabbit valley but there is a big chance my books and comics will be distributed by them.
Same way spending some time with leo talking about the illustrations of “Heart behind the mask” was damn nice too and showing good progress.
I even had some time to talk with Rukis and was happy to see she was tired, normal for a convention, but doing okay and happier where she lives now.
We still have around a month here in California and I find myself checking on my dogs in france more than anything else as they are the only thing I miss there.
I think being able to hold them once again will be the only thing making me smile through the jet lag and my parent’s questions like we have the code to a missile launcher hidden somewhere without knowing it. Hehe.
Other than that the next novel is up to ch 14 so far and I admit I appreciate the different world myself even if I miss my usual one in a way.
And well the cd is up to 9 songs so far and SHOULD be out for Ac. We are even talking about doing a kind of “small party” with foxamoore to let people listen to it. Always nice when you hear an amazing music composer say “This is so different than what I usually write but it’s going to be AWESOME.” Hehe
It sure gives me a smile.
In any case I hope everyone is okay, and once zura is out of her flu we will be talking if we want to add Fc to our roaster of conventions or not.
But, by the way, be warned there is a BIG chance this Eurofurence will be our last for a while. I haven’t missed a Eurofurence since I was 25 and I got a LOT of great friends here. But the organization, if I can call it that way, is just starting to drive me nuts and ready to chew bricks. We go to a convention to relax, sell some stuff and see friends. NOT get stomach aches.
But I will be keeping people informed as we decide more along the way, we do have our reservation this year. Even if we nearly had to end up in a fight to get a room. Not sure about a table at the den so far although.
But well AC is all set up for us we just wait for a table confirmation.
So there it is for January at this point.
I hope everyone is okay.
