I am exceedingly proud of my collection. There are some absolutely amazing artist on this site.

The only issue that I have is with the slide show's order. It's set up from newest to oldest. I wish it were more random as there are days that I'll get on some wild kind of kick and there are suddenly 12 Star Wars pics in a row (yeesh).

Help a sista out--actually you would be helping a group--namely :iconthe-bards-college:

I tried to put "A Whole Lot" under goal...but...stupid thing only takes numbers. So I put a whole lotta numbers there instead.

You must be logged in to donate.
So, I've been busy.  Even though I haven't posted any new stories or screen shots, I've been working on other projects.  I have been editing my first work Nerevar Blue.  I love that story and now that I have a wonderful beta reader who has helped me channel my inner grammar Nazi, I am able to fix most of the mistakes I made while writing the story.  I can't thank Whisper292 enough.  Once I'm done, I will release Nerevar Blue to the Bards and to a couple of other groups.

I am working on two other projects. One is finishing up the Courtesan Series.  The ideas are there, but I haven't had much time to devote to them.  That is changing now that I have my Mondays back, but Marceline is still on top of a mountain and I haven't found the words to get her and Ondolemar down in one piece.  I'm working on it.

I'm also working on The Man Without an Emblem, a fan fiction project devoted to the marvelous anime Fairy Tail.  If you haven't watched that show, do yourself a favor: grab some popcorn, a drink of your choice and go to town on that series. 

While looking for inspiration, I thought it would be fun to see what my muses would look like if they were real people.  This is the result.

  Please note the photos are not done by me nor have I claimed them as my own; they are images found on the internet. The images used are copyright of the stakeholders, all rights reserved.  Screen shots are property of Morrowind and Skyrim ©Bethesda Softworks.  Julan Kaushibael is property of kateri-t and her amazing mod:

So without further adieu, here are my muses come to life:

Annika Blue (Nerevar Blue):    Anni and Wickerwheat 2 by Lesliewifeofbath        Annika Blue Real Life by Lesliewifeofbath  
This is her.  About a year ago, I found this model while perusing pinterest.  Seeing her gave me the idea for this project.  I wish I knew who she was.

Julan Kaushibael (Nerevar Blue): JulanKaushibael by Lesliewifeofbath  Julan Kaushibael Real Life by Lesliewifeofbath
Yeah, I always envisioned Ian Somerhalder as Julan, except with gray skin and red eyes.  Hot stuff.

Annka "Marceline" Kaushibael: Headshot Annka by Lesliewifeofbath  Annka Marceline For Real by Lesliewifeofbath
(Courtesan Series) This is Marceline, the great beauty that has Skyrim on it's knees.  She is the ultimate muse.  Again, I wish I could find the model's name.

Ondolemar (The Courtesan Series): Ondolemar Redux--For Reference Use by Lesliewifeofbath  Ondolemar Come to Life by Lesliewifeofbath
Well we knew this was coming.  No big surprise that Tom Hiddleston is my muse for Ondolemar.  He is an amazing actor, and pretty easy on the eyes. 

Aidia, my OC from The Man without an Emblem, based off of  Fairy Tail©  Hiro Mashima   Aidia Come To life by Lesliewifeofbath
Yeah, I know I have a thing for black hair/ blue eyes. Again, as this image comes from Pintrest, the actual photo and model are hard to track down. 

Laxus Dryer, from The Man without an Emblem Series: Fairy Tail©  Hiro Mashima                                 laxus by frechdachs90          Laxus Dreyar by HaitianHallow
To the left is frechdachs90 depiction of Laxus--it's very true to comic and show. HaitianHallow did an amazing job of bringing Laxus to life.

I'm not sure what Atvir Dres looks like.  Just haven't decided.  Anyway, I will be working to complete the Courtesan Series.  I gotta get that girl off that mountain.

Here's the rest:. As it stands now, when I hit group button I only see my primary group's messages. I then have to sift through each group to see where the other messages are coming from. Remember that writers are artists too.

Happy 14th. I truly love dA and spend a great deal of free time on it. On improvements: As a person who manages multiple groups, I think the group messages option should be tweaked so it's easier to get to the messages from various groups. As it stands
