I've now just finished editing The Freezing Fog... at last!! And now's the time to work on a synopsis! I'm new to the synopsis and query letters, so if anyone here has any advice to give me, I would greatly appreciate it. :la:
I'm so excited to have really, finally finished this book :blush: I've been working on it for a year and 3 months, and to think I can get started on the second one... gaaah I'm so excited! (don't mind me :XD:) Also to start building a proposal package and contacting agents!
Looks like I'll be sticking with Mallady and Lars for a while. =)

On another note.... season 4 of Game of Thrones has started up.
That first episode was AWESOME. JUST AWESOME.
...with the Hound giving some of the best lines I've ever heard. :XD: But really, everyone's acting was wonderful, the scenes were great--can't wait for next week! :love: And Drogon, Viserys, and Rhaegal are getting so big! Dany should watch out.

Does anyone else here watch Game of Thrones? :?

*Commission List:

I will do single portraits/head-shots of people, creatures, or animals for either one of the following:

$30.00 mailed to me by money order,
A full-year Deviant Art premium membership given to me,
Or 2,400 points on Deviant Art.

A reference photo is required for me to draw from. All works will be digital, with simple/no backgrounds, and can be in either color or black and white. The definition of a head shot is strictly the head and neck; with a person's portrait I will draw all the way to the tops of their shoulders.
Payment can be given in full at the start of the commission, or if you prefer you can send me half of it at first and half of it when the picture is finished. You may also wait to send full payment until I'm halfway done with the picture, in which I'll send you a progress shot of it so you may see that I am committed to working on it before you pay.
Payments are final, there are no refunds. If you decide to pay me half in the beginning and then, before I am finished with the picture, decide you don't want it anymore, then you do not have to pay me the rest.
I do commission works just as good as my own personal works. My quality of art is professional and all commissions are treated as such. You should give my gallery a browse to make sure before commissioning that my artwork is something you like initially. I prefer to draw and paint things realistically, so take that into consideration; however if you want a different look, I might not be opposed to trying something different. The best way to find out is to ask!  
Also, be sure to keep in mind that I have the right to display all finished pictures as I see fit, whether it's in my portfolio, here on Deviant Art, or anywhere else.

P.S. Your id pic is very pretty :)

:XD: I don't know if I can really see Tseng smiling as he snowboards, but I can totally see Genesis doing that in the picture. :D

:love: Oh, thank you! :la:

Hahaha would Tseng ever really smile, honestly? :P

Genesis so would!

You're welcome!

Well actually, now that you mention it... :XD: Tseng does smile once or twice in Crisis Core, for a moment.

Sooo... what do you know about Luxiere? There seems to be absolutely no information about him. Anywhere.
BahamutDeusModus Feb 22, 2014  Professional General Artist
He's a very minor character in Crisis Core that seems to idolize Zack. Kunsel is a definite friend of Zack and you see him here and there throughout the game and get frequent emails from him, but Luxiere only pops up once or twice, and then sends a few emails to Zack during more of the latter half of the game.
The last time you hear from him is an email Zack gets shortly after escaping Nibelheim with Cloud; Luxiere asks where Zack is, and says he has an idea that perhaps if Zack lets Luxiere catch him, then he might get a promotion and be able to help Zack out then.
It seems to me like he does idolize Zack, but is rather ignorant of Shinra's inner workings and what would really happen if Zack was caught.

Hmm. Kinda sad.

Weren't most people ignorant of ShinRa's inner workings? But Luxiere still sounds ignorant. Does anyone know what happens to him after Crisis Core?

BahamutDeusModus Feb 26, 2014  Professional General Artist
Most people were ignorant of them, yeah, but I think most of the employees knew what was going on, even if they didn't know everything. That's why it's hard for an employee to leave Shinra and retire, because oftentimes there's so many secrets that the employees are constantly/secretly watched for the rest of their lives. I heard that in extreme cases the former employee is executed... Makes someone not want to work for Shinra, if they knew that stuff.
No, as far as I know, Luxiere never gets mentioned again. Poor guy; I think he meant well...

I figured maybe we'd start writing here instead. :P Besides, if I had anymore questions, it would be easier to come to your page instead of waiting for you to respond.


So, what do you know about snowboarding at Icicle Inn?


If I can find it, I'll link it to you :)

BahamutDeusModus Feb 22, 2014  Professional General Artist
Okay, sounds good to me. :giggle:

Well, other than the people who snowboard on the hill just behind the inn, when you play the original game, you get to snowboard down the other side of the hill and into the valley there (I think the valley has a name, but I forget what it's called--I only played the game once so far). And during that snowboarding time, you get to dodge trees and ice walls and rocks and all sorts of fun/lethal objects. :XD:
I was not a very good snowboarder.....

You don't need to go out of your way, but if you see it, you can let me know. :giggle:
