About me

I am an English graduate of Goldsmiths, University of London. Hobbyist writer and artist, I have been particularly active fandom in the past although not any more. My spare time involves writing, drawing, watching, reading and playing Pokemon. I also collect the cards as well as play the games.

Journalocke: Pokemon Alpha Sapphire WedlockeIt has been ages since I did a proper Nuzlocke-style playthrough of a game. In fact I think the last time I did one was well over a year ago. I had initially hoped to do a Nuzlocke or maybe even a Wonderlocke of Pokemon Y when it first came out but I just wasn't feeling it. It was a brand new generation with new Pokemon that I wanted to try out. Every Nuzlocke I tried to begin I found myself being stuck with Pokemon I had already used or weren't new generation, which makes me feel like I was missing out.
Then came along the remakes of one of my favourite Pokemon games, Ruby and Sapphire. It was then I vowed that I would do a normal playthrough with one and Nuzlocke the other.
Interesting fact: Pokemon Sapphire was the very first Nuzlocke I ever did. It was about a year or so before I decided to do my recorded run of Pokemon Black, which has become my project Scarlett's Run (Comic turned Written Fiction storylocke) where I had just heard about the Nuzl

She had that Meditite and I didn't know it had Thunderpunch. I hate myself for making that mistake. I perhaps should have realised given we were in an Electric gym but... dang it! It was such a stupid mistake. I was on the train home from work when it happened and I just stared at that screen for a whole minute before I finally sen

Black Nuzlocke: Scarlett and Saffy by Sophie-Lou
Black Nuzlocke: Scarlett and Saffy
Yet another Mother/Daughter picture-scene, this time with Scarlett and Sapphire Stone from Black Nuzlocke: Scarlett's Run. You have Scarlett on the left (about 8-years-old) and her mother Saffy.

And a cute little Aron there too. Yes, he is totally Max's son.

Sailor Moon: Venus and Ceres by Sophie-Lou
Sailor Moon: Venus and Ceres
I just felt like drawing it. It took about two hours and I purposely tried to emulate the original art style for Sailor Moon. I drew this with a combination of blunt and finely sharpened pencils of various grades. Then I digitally watercoloured it.

Anyone who has been within the Sailor Moon fandom for more than half-an-hour will come across a couple of pages regarding Ceres's role in the Sailor Quartet and her being the counterpart to Venus's role in the Inner Senshi. Ceres is the Quartets leader and, design wise, it is clear that she is supposed to be a body double for Chibiusa much like how Venus is for Moon. In addition to this Ceres is canonically accepted as the leader of the Quartet - again, like Venus is to the Inner Senshi.

There is also a headcanon that circulates now and then that Ceres sharing all of these qualities with Venus is no coincidence and that she is, in fact, the protege or even daughter of Venus herself. With mother's day just around the bend (and having lost mine) I've taken to drawing mothers and mother figures with the younger generation.

The Pen/Marker (Takeshi's) Challenge by Sophie-Lou
The Pen/Marker (Takeshi's) Challenge
I got tagged for this challenge thing by the lovely Shteev2 on update glamorously entitled Takeshi's (Pen/Marker) Challenge Tag. Fuck. 
A true work of art I think you'll agree and here is my magnum opus to contribute.

EDIT: Shteev2 and I have official declared this a true "Takeshi's Challenge" for reason explained in the comments below. So there! I am a dummy! )

The rules to this challenge are thus:

Bullet; Yellow  You must draw an OC using a pen.
Bullet; Yellow  NO SKETCHES or Guides or Refs.
Bullet; Yellow  Show your own handwriting.
Bullet; Yellow  Tag others

I have no idea is any of the rest of you have done this challenge yet or not but if you haven't I will tag RobbyCobalt , Dorriesmurf and MikamiMoon . Enjoy!

I'm feeling pretty tense right now. I have a few concerns regarding my MA application, my dad isn't well (and he loves to be a martyr for it) and this is all playing on my anxiety. I just wish I could talk to someone but... you know when you don't want to bother people?

Yes, I'm feeling a little... scared right now. Trapped, almost. My dad's issues come from having bad arthritis, depression, anxiety (guess it's genetic) and not having the right mental processes to deal with shit because my mum always handled them before. Dealing with him in a self-pitying state is pretty hard. I wish I could get away from it for a week or so but... where do I go? On holiday? Where? I'm not really a hot climate, sandy beaches place and I hate hotels, especially if you're alone. I don't have any friends to visit so, what to do?

Dealing with a father who you feel forced to bond with even though you have never really had much in common with him is hard. He annoys me to no end but I'm always worried about him because he's all I have left. If I lose my dad, I'm probably going to end up as some crazy cat lady who only leaves the house to go to work.

I want to get away but I feel like I am suffocating sometimes. I miss my mother but now this is more about wanting to be away from it all, try new things and yet have a comfortable setting to return to.

Basically, I've gone mad. Sweating a little...
