Happy Holidays!
Happy holidays to all my followers. I've gotten to know many of you over the last couple of years and I am very proud to call many of you friends. I love exchanging comments and replies with various artists and readers. Your interactions are why I love being here. The fanart is why I came, but the community is why I've stayed. =)

Causa Mortis: Chapter 4 - Sanctuary
There's a lot about Skyrim that Lumen doesn't like, but she loves the night sky. The stars are so crisp and bright, and while Masser and Secunda are just as brilliant in Skyrim as they are in Cyrodiil, they are made even more beautiful by the aurora blazing beneath them. Lumen is often distracted by the sky when she travels at night, but tonight she can allow it. Traveling with two Dark Brotherhood assassins and their daedric horse certainly has it's perks.
At first Lumen had been hesitant to ride on the horse with Astrid. She's comfortable with horses but she'd never been around one with glowing, red eyes before. But with a little persuasion from Astrid, and some growling from Arnbjorn, she finally relented.
"All right, tidbit. Now that we're friends, I've got a few questions of my own to ask." Arnbjorn sounds anything but friendly, and even from her high vantage on Shadowmere, he still looks menacing. He doesn't wait for Lumen to agree to answer any questions when he asks, "Mi

Blood That Binds: Part 3, First Impressions
I wake up the next morning feeling awfully good. Although the slices on my ribs look worse, Lucien's potion has completely taken away the pain. I pack up all my bags and am about to head down the stairs when I overhear guards at the counter.
"Honestly," Manheim insists, his voice sounding annoyed. "She couldn't have killed him. She was with me the whole time."
"What were you doing?" The guard demands, his voice sounding equally irritated. Manheim pauses for a minute and doesn't say anything, so I head down the stairs with my luggage.
"He watched the door while I took a bath. There was a divider and my virtue wasn't in danger. We were talking the whole time." The guard only grumbles and Manheim looks relieved, shooting me a glance that I interpret as thank you.
"What happened, anyway?" I ask as naively as I can.
Manheim shakes his head. "Rufio was murdered during the night." I gasp and the guard looks at me.
"We suspect the Dark Brotherhood is involved." He looks grim.
I laugh,

All My Merry CharactersI have put up a special page on my Tumblr, where I have collected all of my 86 (yup, 86 and counting!) OCs from the Elder Scrolls and Dragon Age universes, listing their names, races (for Elder Scrolls, as in Dragon Age the race is apparent if you look at the protag's last name), pronouns, a couple of very basic facts, and love interests.
http://norroendyrd.tumblr.com/mycharacters
I also have Anon back on, so if you aren't on Tumblr, you can still drop by in my Ask box and say hi! :D
A Group to ConsiderI have shared some of my thoughts on my characters and fan fiction in a neat little interview in group called Thedas in Love:

It caters to fan artists and writers who specialize on romantic and platonic relationships in the Dragon Age universe. They have collected a lot of interesting artwork, but the group is currently woefully understaffed (and the admin would rather not set submissions to getting accepted automatically because sometimes people post art that does not match the group's theme), so if you have matching interests and have enough time to help keep it afloat, I am sure the group would welcome your input!


Heads UpI have noticed that since I posted this journal, people have stopped giving my art comments. Yo, I am not gone yet! For all we know, I might never be! *knocks on wood*
It's just a possibility, because DeviantArt did become unavailable in my country a couple of years ago due to galleries with child pornography, which is illegal over here (some providers have since learned to block one page rather than the whole website, but you never know). I am sure I will move on to other platforms if something like this ever happens, and ask you to follow me there! In the meanwhile, do enjoy your stay!
Bumping this because the subject below has come up again.
The use of VPNs and Tor to bypass online censorship has just been made illegal in my country, so should websites I frequent (Tumblr, DeviantArt, etc.) ever become banned, I will vanish from them forever. I thought I should give an advance warning while I still can.

I just wanted to sneak in an explanation that if I suddenly vanish off th

Sorry if I don't reply Stamp by LiquidKrystal Reply Comments Stamp by Mirz123 [Stamp] Gratitude by Creepiest

Stamp: Love Commenters by Flame-of-the-Phoenix .: Read the comments :. Stamp by Beti-Kot friends STAMP by peterdzign

Why don't I always respond to comments?

I can't stress it enoughI have checked my inbox, and realized that some of the comments there are over two months old. This makes me tremendously guilty, and while I've made journals and polls about the matter, I was recently given to understand that some commenters are far from forgiving when an artist is lingering with a reply.
Please, please, please, I beg of you: understand this.
I read, and appreciate, and love every comment. The fact that I take a while to reply, or sometimes forget to reply, does not mean that I am arrogant or negligent. It means that I am too busy, or maybe too tired to find the right words.
Much as I enjoy contributing to this community, I also have some off-line obligations, such as studying (I only just recently got my Master's Degree in linguistics, and I might give a shot to post-grad education) and working as a translator and occasional English tutor to support my family. Our relationship is far from smooth, but we are all working to improve it. Plus, few as they are, I have a c


And why do I respond to comments in a certain way?

Dear people of the world!I have recently noted a somewhat exasperating trend in my replies to comments. They usually go along the lines of '.... and I hope you like the drawing/comic/story!'. I know this may seem nagging and annoying to some - but the reason I share the stuff I come up with on this website is to hear what other people think about it. I am always striving to improve my skills, and hearing feedback is important to me! Plus, I always gets stupidly excited when I come up with a concept or plotline, and I hope in my heart of hearts that it will resonate within the viewers' souls.
So, while I appreciate you staying in my gallery long enough to share the stories about how you levelled up your video game character, or how excited you are to be the first to comment, or which song you are listening to right now, or how to get to your favourite pancake restaurant (that actually happened), or what you think of your pubic hair (that also happened), eventually I AM going to be a kill-joy and ask this


Please check out these journals if you wanna support my amazing friends!

Important Note!My good friend :iconblueoakrogue: is opening commissions!

If you have funds to spare, be sure to check out her awesome work! Here are some of the lovely commissions and gift art :iconblueoakrogue: made for me before:




As you can see, her art is characterized by a thorough approach to detail, and a unique, recognizable style that is perfect for illustrating fantasy. As a client, I was never disappointed with my commissions, and I have always felt overwhelmingly flattered to receive gift art from such a wonderful artist!
The same, I believe,  can be said of others here on DA, too!
Here are the commissions :iconblueoakrogue: did for them:

Blessed are the readers, champions of the artI am happy to announce that a good buddy of mine, :iconarlesienne:, has finally decided to share her lovely Dragon Age stories with the public on DeviantArt! I spent quite a good deal of time convincing her writing's quality merits it being distributed further than among the closest circle of friends, and it will be amazing if she gets the exposure she deserves!
Here's the first story she's posted! If you can spare a moment, be sure to drop by and give it a peek!
Wanna support a lovely artist?I really love the great, spectacularly detailed, and colourful Elder Scrolls fan art produced by :iconfrozenmudcrab:
Here are some of my favourite pieces in their gallery:





(Fun fact: Thanks to their wonderful artwork, I am now seriously considering shipping my Skyrim OC Many-Scars with Uthgerd the Unbroken!)
They haven't been so active on DA, lately, however (which made me rather sad), so the other day I've decided to drop by and see how things were going. And as it turns out, :iconfrozenmudcrab: has got commissions open!

If you have money to spare, here's another lovely artist to add to your list of potential commission artists to consider! :D
Sweet Commissions!Hello again y'all!
My awesome friend :iconmutantenfisch: has commissions open until May!

He has an amazing drawing style, and his prices are quite reasonable. Plus, he is open to shipping originals to you, which is extra-awesome!
I can't think of what I might have like commissioned for myself (yet?), thus so far I am giving a signal boost.

I am afraid that, while I know and love Gravity Falls, I have only rumour-based knowledge of Pokemon, so I do not think I can arrange an in-character 'meeting' between these two. :shrug:
