So I picked up this dragon as fodder back in August:

a feathery black dragon with pale circuit markings

And I said to myself, "Self, that dragon would be fantastic with cream rather than antique!" At that point there were literally no obsidian/obsidian/cream dragons for sale, however. Not a one! So I looked for male dragons that were obsidian/obsidian/maize circuit; also not a one. (There were obs/obs/maize dragons. Just not with circuit.) So, I picked up this gentleman and resigned myself to breeding the dragon I wanted:

a leathery black dragon with pale pink circuit markings

Each and every hatchling that those two dragons made had a 1/8th chance of being a female with cream. It took September, October, November, December, January, February, and finally a nest in Msrch, but at last:

a feathery black dragon with pale orange circuit markings

There were twenty-one hatchlings, because the final nest had four, but Cheris there was the nineteenth. For a 1/8th chance, getting the dragon on the 19th try is... not bad, given how long some breeding projects take! (At least neither of them were coatls.) In total, there were 3 with cream - 14.3% rather than 25%. There were 2 Skydancers - 9.52% rather than 15%. (Cheris was not one of them when she hatched, either. Shh.) However, instead of 10 or 11 female hatchlings, there were 13, so... the RNG didn't entirely hate me? :v

Anyone else complete (or give up on) a project recently?

So, the latest Wonder Woman trailer is out and I have watched it approximately twenty times.

Just look at it.



Here are just five things I love about this new trailer for one of my most anticipated cinema events of 2017. Wonder Woman is going to be in a movie, everyone!

Winter releases this time around felt a little subdued. I don't know if that's because of politics or whether it's saying something about the books coming out. In February there were some hyped releases, like The Stars Are Legion by Kameron Hurley (which I had to tap out of) and A Conjuring of Light by V.E. Schwab (I still need to read the second book), but otherwise I didn't feel the same energetic push for other titles that I'm used to. Of course, I'm behind on the brand spanking new because what is time management (I don't know, even having read a time management self-help book). Read more... )

Ten icons, yay!

Originally I'd planned to do a set of Lasswell exclusively, but with relatively limited resources (and cropping being a pain in the arse to still get what I wanted) I decided bah, Rain can sneak in also. Lasswell doesn't let the dumbarse out of his sight anyway when he can help it --

Then a crystal icon, because of course. And one of Shera's chibi design because Shera ~

Photobucket

Thanks to everyone who let us know that Photobucket images were not loading properly on some pages. The problem seemed to be mostly limited to HTTPS requests; Dreamwidth maintains a list of known high-traffic image sites that support HTTPS, so that our secure content proxy service doesn't cache them unnecessarily. Unfortunately Photobucket seems to have recently changed their site configuration such that HTTPS requests aren't being served as expected, and we've now taken it out of our list of "proxy-exempt" sites.

If you continue to have issues, make sure you're not using HTTPS Photobucket links. It's a bit counterintuitive, but if you use HTTP instead, it will be automatically transformed on our end to an HTTPS link that uses p.dreamwidth.org.

Hope that clears everything up for now! Let us know if it doesn't...

I love making icons :D Well, sort of. In times past, I could be very diligent about making a background for every icon and all that jazz, but these days I'd much rather just crop and edit the lighting, colouring, etc. of the picture itself. I guess these days I just go for a simpler style.

6 100x100 icons of Sakurauchi Riko
6 100x100 icons of Koizumi Hanayo
12 200x200 icons of Kaname Madoka or Ultimate Madoka

The Madoka icons are bigger because Tumblr, but they'll work just fine on DW!

If anyone wants to request Madoka Magica icons, feel free! I'm really happy to make them!

The Lending Shelf of My Dreams

Today, I'm doing a collaboration project with Jenny, Claire, and Chelsea! They'll have posts/videos up at their projects today, so definitely check them out.

I was super happy when they all agreed to come do this with me, because there's nothing I like more than ~seducing~ people into reccing books. My tombstone, probably: "She really liked recs. Like, really." There's an art to recommending books: figuring out your audience, trying to remember what books you've read, and deciding which they might take to. So recs can be pretty specific to each individual, but there are some books that you lie in wait with for every reccing opportunity available...just in case. I wondered: if I had a shelf with extra copies of ten books only for lending to people, regardless of their tastes, what books would I stock?

This is that list. Read more... )

Be sure to check out Jenny, Claire, and Chelsea! I'm sure their lists will be GREAT, and then after you've seen all the lists you'll be inspired to make your own and you'll @ me on Twitter to tell me about it...right? #seduction
