So, what's been going on.

Because I owe you all an explanation. 

tl;dr, G+ ate me. If you want me to follow you...well, I might or might not. 

See, I won't follow you back just because you're a furry. I've learned to stop hating on furries, mind; hating on anything just plain isn't worth it. It's more like I realized exactly how out of place I feel in the fandom. I...it's to the point where I cannot consider myself a proper part of it. 


I like transformation stuff enough to do an academic term paper on it. That...doesn't mean I really like the people I've surrounded myself with. Even going in, my mindset was kinda, "wow, people are amused by this crap?" Some of you are exceptional, and you know who you are. I won't name names. 

I've also...well, kind of given up a job ever. The mere idea of a paycheck has become negative reinforcement for me; if I'm doing something "for the money," I won't be able to do it well at all. You can still commission me, but bear in mind that it'll probably be kinda formulaic - even if one of the things I really like is toying with formulas. Still, yeah, I want to write and nothing else, no matter how much people like my art. 

Re: Pokemon...sorry, but no Pokemon for me until Gen VI dies a horrible, burning death. I am more than willing to provide the fire for that. Konami can come, too. 

That said, please enjoy this. The writer will thank you:  Wave: Re-Endemic - Chapter 1: The Ends that MeetHello?
World?
Where is the world?
Is there still a world?
Where are you guys?
Can you guys hear me?
I can't see anything...
No, I can see too much. It's blinding me.
Guys? Please say something.
Of course not... Why would they say anything? How long has it been again? It's been years, right? What are years again? Three hundred days? No. Years are longer. Three hundred sixty? Maybe somewhere around there. Three sixty.
I was in the hive.
I saw pulsing visions of symbols, swirling, blue and white, twirling like music of the eye, singing, ringing my bell. I heard colors. I saw sounds. I felt the untouchable. It was neither warm nor cold. It was outside of my body and inside of my mind. So many three sixties went by since I'd felt this way. I didn't remember any of the points after and before this. This was everything to me. This was my life. It was a bath of colors and sounds dancing on the tips of my whiskers. I was aware of my body, but I also knew that I didn't have one anymore. I was fu

Shirika - more anthro mode. by KuroKarasu
Shirika - more anthro mode.
Dragons have become a guilty pleasure for me. 

I LOVE dragons as fantastical flying lizards, with some mammalian traits, that do magical things. At the same time, I realize that the idea is literally as old as time itself, and that hell, the idea of the dragon has always been "this vaguely reptilian thing with magical powers" - for good or for ill. It's overused, but still continues to work - largely because the idea of "magical flying reptile thing" can be taken so many ways. 

I'm still kind of a weirdo when it comes to the dragon fanbase, however. 

On one hand, I've become a total dracophile thanks to MonHunt and CFV (Dragonic Overlord, why are you so sexy? Fire, tail, and wings, that's why). On the other, I'm more than a little sickened by the furry fanbase in general - usually, no, I don't want to RP much of anything. Working with a certain dragon TF fanatic and being around dragon Otherkin made me think that things were getting out of hand in one way or another. 

Shirika is my kind of dragon: a throwback to the "90's dragons" like Lugia, Charizard, and Filia from Slayers, while still being an entirely new life form. She's made partially of silicon; that said, no scales or feathers, just very sleek, surprisingly sturdy, rubbery skin. Also, she has acid that melts flesh into caramel, released at will from a sac. Both silicon crystals and humans are on the menu; human women can also double as vessels for Shirika and her kind (which are amazingly diverse in form- there are some that look like glass!). 

Instead of "playing" like a normal dragon, Shirika functions much more like a black mamba with a venomous head on both ends; her neck and tail are both highly flexible. Were she ever to die, her entire body would become sand, leaving only that stone behind. (I didn't put too much detail into it, but it looks vaguely like rutilated amethyst.) There is no male in the entire species; they're parasitic only to women, explaining the whole "eat princesses" thing. 

tl;dr, Shirika is cute, rubbery, and will kill you unless you give her humans, busted computers, or crystals to eat. Enjoy. :D
