Doll-finzzzz~! I'm giving the image hosting site Imgur a try at a friend's recommendation, after ranting hardcore at them about Photobucket being a butt. (Dreamwidth, I love you, and I am 100% going to store more images here and love it, especially for accessibility, but you currently don't have the image organization tools that I require. I have well over five hundred pictures of crocheted things alone, and don't care to try and sort through all of them every time I want to get to a Dreamsheep icon, for example.)

Anyway, these are all of the dolphins I've made so far for ICON, the local SFF con, one of whose staff members commissioned me to make a little somethin' for the Con Benefactor bags. They only need seventeen, but I'm like, why stop there? So I'm currently up to twenty-six, and there's still another week-and-a-half before the con for me to make more.

Lots of colors were specifically requested, or I probably (definitely) would've gone with all pale blue/periwinkle/gray/vaguely-real-dolphin-color-ish. (The color of the four light-blue-ish dolphins in the top of the picture is listed as "lavender" on the yarn. I mean, it looks a lot more blue-ish to me, but there's something like a 25-50% chance I'm a carrier for red/green colorblindness, so.) I think I'm kinda glad for that request, because it's actually made using the same pattern over and over again less boring :P I love how naturally the yarn tends to stripe, too.

I wanted to take advantage of my sick day to actually make a post here about... idk, what I've been up to? Thoughts about FFXV? (I have not yet talked to the secretary yet, so shit has yet to hit the fan. PLEASE DO NOT SPOIL ME FOR THE LAST BATTLE.) My weird, unexpected ship of the game? The fact that I am sick for the second time in two months?

But I am sick so you just get a vague jumble of nonsense. But, uh, I am alive. When was the last time I posted here? Geez.

\o/ Pun success!

I've finally found it: The perfect pun to use for romantic orientations in my Potions collection!

Roman-tonic :D

I gave serious thought to just adding "oil" to the end of romantic orientations, but it just didn't sit right with me. I'm definitely glad I gave myself the time to find something else.

Now I just gotta find something good and punny for gender identities. Gender Fluid and Genderflux Capacitor only cover two identities, and there's a lot more out there to think about.

Having realized because of a fic that I spend a lot of time cheating at/faking eye contact, I have come to the conclusion that I would probably recognize faces better if I spent more time actually looking at them.

The things you inadvertently learn/figure out because of fic, I tell ya.
