The Voice in the Water


Listen to the crashing of the waves, the flow of a stream, the roar of a waterfall, or the patter of the rain.

Commander Spitfire · 4:29pm June 6th

And now we reach the fourth of our five living Phoenix-born, and General Sentry's second: Commander Spitfire.

Hopefully doing some art for phoenix-born will help me get back into the grove. Till next time.

Dissertation is in! · 3:49am June 3rd

Terrible news everyone, my dissertation is in, and I have officially graduated. Now I have to find a job.

So, between sending in job applications and looking for post-docs, I'm going to start getting back into Phoenix-born Rising, and hopefully finish up the Trials arc. Since I've been away from my baby, it's going to take a bit to get back into the grove. But, hopefully it won't take too long.

Thank you everyone for your patience.

The Smooze · 2:32pm April 19th

Heya! I'm not dead! I needed a break from my disseration, so I decided to come up with a bit about the Smooze from Splintered Sky.

Splintered Sky isn't dead. I swear. I'm going to get back to it once I have the time to focus on something other than getting this PhD done.

Anyhow, here's Nitor's version of the unstoppable purple blob monster.

Kestrel maturation as an analog to a growing phoenix chick · 7:57pm Dec 29th, 2021

Hey all.

So, good news. Over the winter break, I managed to carve out a little time for myself to re-work my outline for the final part of book two of Phoenix-born rising. It still needs work, because I'm not happy with some of the recent parts, but it feels good to have a chance to write "not job application / thesis" stuff for a bit. So, things are underway.

I may have inadvertently created a 5-man band. · 9:39pm Nov 14th, 2021

So, when Red at Overly Sarcastic Productions posted a new video on "The Smart Guy" trope from the "five man band" trope, it got me thinking about Phoenix-born Rising (Which isn't dead! I'm outlining things! PhDs are hard! Don't judge me!), and how the five phoenix-born kinda fall into the trope. Not perfectly, but there are parallels.

D'compose - Lord of Unlife · 4:37pm Sep 2nd, 2021

Between working on the next chapter and my thesis, I needed a bit of a brain break, so I decided to put pecil to paper and come up with Splintered Sky's version of D'compose.

Cryptograms (aka tiny plants) · 6:13pm Aug 26th, 2021

Inspiration has been fleeting due to the stress of my dissertation. So, while I try to get my creative mojo going again, allow me to distract you all with pretty pictures of tiny plants taken with the super-macro setting on my camera (my actual camera. I don't have a smart phone, nor do I want one).

First up - Liverworts!
