No matter how bad a day I’m having, these never fail to cheer me up. Something about seeing the Happily Ever After for one of my favorite faery tales…even if the spell isn’t completely broken.
If you like these or if you’re in the mood for a little more faery tale Happily Ever After, try reading The Queen’s Tale by willowbough.
These are so beautiful! :’)
I love their babies! SO CUTE!
‘Anamnesis’ is a Steampunk novel-in-progress about a Victorian-esque clockwork kingdom set in a fancifully re-imagined American West. Its inhabitants are clever and resourceful, and have compensated broadly for…
Reposting for the day shift. Interested in Steampunk fiction? Why not take a look and follow along?
Damn, I predict I’ll be writing ridiculous amounts of fanfiction for this when it’s complete (if that’s okay with gunmetal-skies of course). Reccing this to everyone~
PS to gunmetal-skies: I commented on this over at Watpad (that’s what it’s call right?) in case you’re curious of what I thought of it in more detail. Short summary: it really grabbed me and I want to read MOAR!
I’M DOING THE FINAL EDITS ON MY FIRST EVER FINISHED NOVEL! THAT WILL BE PRINTED IN ACTUAL BOOK FORM (ONLY 5 COPIES BUT WHO CAAAAAREEEESSSSS~) AND MY SISTER IS MAKING THE COVER ART AND GUNMETAL-SKIES IS HELPING ME MAKE IT PROPER ENGLISH! CAN YOU TELL I AM UNCONTROLLABLY EXCITED?!?!
*ehem* Carry on.

SIGNAL BOOST THIS BECAUSE I DON’T WANT ANYONE TO BE AFFECTED BY THIS FUCKING THING
WELL FUCK ME SIDEWAYS
So: laptop is dead. I was incredibly low-spirited about this yesterday, because it has been a terrible week full of very trying things, and this was just kind of the last straw. And I woke feeling absolutely awful and depressed, and thought about just staying in bed all day.
But then I made myself get a shower and get dressed. And then I thought, ‘screw this.’ My mantra to myself all week has been ‘I am not a victim’, and I’m not; not of circumstance, not even of my own stupidity.
So I went to the mall and bought myself a new writing notebook (who needs computers? RAWR) and then I went to the internet cafe, and now I’m here, doing what I intended to do this weekend even with a dead laptop. And that’s launch the Anamnesis Mass Media Project.
Because here’s the thing: in between (doubtlessly stirring) renditions of ‘The Weather Song’ and coloring my giant summer seminar poster this week, I started thinking that maybe advertising my novel all over the internet isn’t just a great way to let my family members know I’m not actually dead and solicit unbiased feedback from friends and strangers - maybe it’s also a great way to let a publisher know that people care about the book and are interested in seeing it become a real novel. Now, publication for Anamnesis is quite a ways off, but that means I’ve got time to stir the internet waters a bit - and knowing that people are interested is also a great way to motivate me to push through and finish the thing, even though I have very, very little time right now and am constantly riddled with doubt that it’s worth the effort.
SO. Friends, Romans, Countrymen - Anamnesis has officially hit the world wide web today.
I encourage anyone who likes Steampunk and/or fantasy and/or reading to check it out, because I would love love LOVE some honest and unbiased feedback. But even if you aren’t even remotely interested, it would be an enormous help to me if you’d go and ‘like’ the Facebook page, or - better yet - spread the world to any friends and followers you might have who are interested in Steampunk and/or fantasy and/or reading. I’d sincerely appreciate it. <3
All that being said, without further ado …

Everybody check out this amazing novel-in-the-making!
It’s gone. It’s dead. I’ve lost about 25 pages of my novel, all the gift exchange files, a ton of other things. Oh my god, I cannot handle this right now. The laptop was TWO MONTHS OLD. And now I have no computer.
Fuck, you have all my sympathy! Computers crashing is one of the worst parts of technology. Was it insured? If so, you can always take it back to the shop and have them recover your data. Or if you bought it online, there should be someone you can call linked form their website (though I’m not all that sure about how costumer service works outside of Sweden…)
And don’t worry about my edits, I’ll make do. Focus on your own novel and things.
Edit: I see the magnificent insaneboingo has found a help number for you to call. I hope they can fix things up for you a-sap!
