tiny bubbles  
I got two thirds of the way through the ms and my brain couldn't take it anymore, so I took a nap on Ted. Now it's late and I'm all awake, so I guess I'm going to do a tiny bubbles posting, 'cause I've been collecting links and stuff for one for a couple weeks now. Now to see if I can find them all...

From Deirdre, Enchanted Doll. This is generally NWS. And from Marith, Sous la Mer, which is NWS at *all*, but holy wow, beautiful work. I cannot help wondering if everybody's breasts look that perfect underwater. (Very possibly, since fat floats.) :)

In browsing DeviantArt galleries, I've come across heise, who only seems to do portraits, not sequentials, which is a shame because her anime realism style is extremely pretty and it'd be neat to see a story told that way. :) And this guy's portraits just blew me away. Wow. Even if I don't like Cristina Aguilera that much, his Marilyn portraits (and his X3 portraits) are incredible. :)

Being an Alaskan, I thought this was especially giggle-worthy. :)

And under "sheerly adorable", Tammy sent me a story about an orphaned baby hippo adopted by a 100 year old tortoise.

I think there's more stuff somewhere, but I'm too sleepy to look for it now. G'night, then. :)

Shiny bubbles!

Your icon has me mesmerized.

Feh! They must bounce or spin to be properly hypnotic! :)

Nuh-UH. *Still* icons can be mesmerizing, too! So THERE! *ptlthtllblllt*!

*mesmerized by pandas*

(*looks sekritly delighted at Tersa, 'cause the tiny shiny bubbles mesmerize me too!*)

Fine. Apparently I'm more resistant to mesmerism than you. :P

Probably because your own personality is so overwhelming it can't be distracted by little things like shiny bubbles.

Overwhelming... Wow... You've managed to find something I've never been called before.

Yay, you! :)

Now that I am not running on only *five* hours of sleep, I can also note that the bubbles remind me very much of the shiny metal hoops in the juggling act in Cirque's "Corteo".

Which is out on DVD now, so if you have the ability to get it through Netflix, you should watch, because it is fabu. If only for the shiny bubble hoops!

Yow, you're right, Heise's art is amazing.

I thought you'd like her stuff! :)

Hey, I'm working on Protector of the Flight, and MAN, the wordiness -- slash, slash, slash. Then transcribe. Just did 3 day copy edits for Heart Quest. I am SO with you there in the whine box.

Regarding X-Men
I've a friend who works for the Onion in their A/V department, and she had this to say:

Saw X-Men: The Last Stand this morning. Note for the fans: Stay through the credits. There's a very short scene at the end that will probably make you roll your eyes, but it's a big ol' setup for the next film. I'm not glad the writers did what they did, but I'm glad I saw it, so I won't be going "What the fuck?" at X-Men 4.

So. For what it's worth. Thought you might like to know. :)
