Life changed, a lot. But it always does. I have a certificate in 3D animation, a computer powerful enough to run the software, a team of like-minded artists ready to I just have to finish the darn script.

Arkine: So, unfortunately, I'm going to have to shut my FS account down for a while. I know it's only $10 a month, but right now that's $10 that I don't really have available. I'll be back, though. :)

    DR DIP: Arkine it would be cheaper to save up for a yearly subscription. I stopped getting a coffee and a muffin for a week and paid for it that way

Arkine: So, it says the last post I made here was May of's been a while. Hi.

Arkine: Okay, so I am taking a much, much needed break from school. Going insane with the horse training, barn construction, etc., etc. Got addicted to a TV show, but that might actually be a good thing as it has begun to re-awaken my muse ... ass---- that he is. So, writing is very rusty, but it kind of feels good to be doing again. :)

Arkine: So, I went back to an older version of the first book in the Nihility series. It's complete, so I think I'm going to move forward with it. I'm having an editor give me a critique to see if there's still some issues that need solving. With luck, it should be published in a couple of weeks--I hope.

Arkine: I think I'm going to have to close my account. :( Finances and school being the way they are....

I suppose I can wait and see if I get a tax return, if not then I'll have to close it.

Arkine: There are days when I just wish life would leave me alone.

    Aaron James: There are days when I just wish life would stop passing me by! ;)

    Arkine: Aaron > ~L~ There's that too...

Arkine: I'm down to one class again so maybe I'll have time to do something other than drawing.

Arkine: I have a much higher respect for 2D animators than I used to. It's far more difficult than painting a scenery, or portrait--not that those aren't difficult. But anyone that thinks that animators are hack artists is full of crap, and doesn't know a damn thing about it. Sorry, just had to voice that.

    Turtle... who?: I think the sentiment applies to any craft out there that requires a certain sort of mastery to produce a desired output. We make assumptions, but sometimes only until someone tries to walk the walk can they appreciate the skill involved.

    DIS-illusioned: Hear, hear, Arkine--hear, hear!
    July 14, 2012 at 4:25PM
    Arkine: Turtle > A very good point. :) And really, it applies to any job field.

    Dis > ;)

Arkine: Blah! Seems like everytime I come back here they've changed the site in some way. Seriously, what's with the purple?
July 11, 2012 at 12:59PM
    DIS-illusioned: You have been crowned royalty. Enjoy!
    July 11, 2012 at 1:05PM
    Arkine: Dis - ~LOL~ Does that come with a pay raise?
    July 11, 2012 at 1:18PM
    Arkine: Oh, God! It doesn't go away! I tried to modify the colors and the purple just stays there. Aaaaahh! Well, changing the background to grey muted the purple a bit, I guess it's tolerable now.

    Lady & Louis: To plagiarise a comment of snodlander's, maybe they've been bought out by Cadbury's ...
    July 11, 2012 at 7:36PM
    Arkine: Lady & Louis > ~LMAO~ Maybe.... Hmmm.
    July 11, 2012 at 7:43PM
    Turtle... who?: The funny part to me is they did a survey, then the first thing implemented was the color purple. Really... How many people were like... You know what this site needs? ... bright purple??

    I think there are subliminal messages hidden in the purples.
    July 11, 2012 at 10:45PM
    Arkine: Purple - "Buy Cadbury's, buy Cadbury's, you want to eat Cadbury's...." ~L~

    Lady & Louis: A glass and a half of full-cream milk in every Fanstory review ...

Arkine: Oie, what a year. Thought I'd stop in and say, "Hi." Maybe post something? ;)
May 20, 2012 at 3:09PM
    adewpearl: Hello, my friend :-) I do hope you post!
    May 20, 2012 at 5:28PM
    Aislinge: Hey there! Glad you've surfaced. Off to read your post... Happy Monday!

Arkine: Update:

Life sucks, but we muddle through it.

Currently, I am searching for a part-time job. Still going to school--trying to refine and gain new art skills. I am attempting to put together a script, but, since I've never written one before, it's all trial and error--for the moment.

I think my muse is back from his sabbatical ... but it's slow going, the gears are rusty.

Hope all is well with everyone!
December 30, 2011 at 1:01PM
    Turtle... who?: My muse is in the bathroom crying I believe. Very sad. Won't come out. Not even for coffee. Maybe for a cookie... I think I'll try again today.
    December 30, 2011 at 3:01PM
    Aislinge: I know how that goes, when the muse takes a sabbatical and leaves you behind. Keep trying--those muses come back eventually :-) Try some good dark chocolate ...
    December 30, 2011 at 3:42PM
    Arkine: Turtle > Oreoes and milk might do the trick. ;)

    Aislinge > I love dark chocolate. ;)
    December 30, 2011 at 3:59PM
    nor84: Fire your muse, Turtle, and recruit a new one. There must be more of them out there.
    December 30, 2011 at 5:28PM
    Turtle... who?: Oreoes, perhaps dipped in dark chocolate...? That sounds right tasty.

    And, Nor, now that you mention it, there is a muse whispering from the closet. Might see what she has to say, right after I lick the wounds of hosting a contest. Boy, am I not cut out for that.
    December 30, 2011 at 5:43PM
    Arkine: Nor84 > ~L~ That sounds like good advice right now. ;)
    December 31, 2011 at 5:41PM

Arkine: Hey look, I'm still alive! ~L~ Just thought I'd drop by and give an update as to current events ... for those that would like to know.

I am maintaining a 4.0 GPA at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh. It's a lot of work but I'm really enjoying it too.

Nihility is still on hold, sorry about that.

My GLBT Erotica might be in print soon, hopefully.

Life has really thrown me for a loop though, some outside stuff has happened--I won't go into details but, it's been very stressful.

I really miss you guys! I hope things are well with everyone!
September 25, 2011 at 6:50PM
    adewpearl: I'm impressed :-)
    September 25, 2011 at 7:00PM
    Turtle... who?: Time moves too fast... Way to go on the GPA! :)
    September 25, 2011 at 7:59PM
    Aislinge: Miss you! Hope everything quiets down enough for you to come on back. See you at NaNo this year??
    October 12, 2011 at 9:02AM

Arkine: I've been accepted to the Art Institute of Pittsburgh (online). I'll be taking classes for a Bachelor's in Media Art and Animation. If you want to see my newest pictures, just go over to FanArtReview, I'm under the same user name: Arkine
July 2, 2011 at 12:01PM
    adewpearl: Congratulations :-)
    July 2, 2011 at 12:27PM
    Arkine: Thanks Brooke! I'm really excited about it. :D
    July 3, 2011 at 3:34PM
    MyYiaYia: Wow! I have been wondering what happened to you. I sure miss your novel. Can't get my vampire fix.
    August 16, 2011 at 11:42PM
    Sefiros: if you could I'd like you to check out my blog at: thank you in advance.
    August 24, 2011 at 8:17AM
    lpstribling: Arkine - Rock on! That's wonderful. I'm very happy for you and look forward to hearing about it. What will your major be?
    September 13, 2011 at 7:29AM
    Arkine: Deb > Yeah, sorry about that. I had to put Nihility on the back burner ... for now, but restashured that it is pretty much the engine behind all that I do. ;)

    Sefiros > I'll take a look!

    Ipstribling > My majore is Media Art and Animation. It's been a lot of fun so far, but a lot of work too. Thx!
    September 25, 2011 at 6:42PM

Arkine: Life moves at break-neck speed.

Okay, so "The Stripling" my short horror story has been disabled because it is now published.

I am also writing under the pen name:
Cody Falinn

For those interested in viewing the website and/or published works there is a link in my profile.

I will be going to school for a second degree so time is EXTREMELY limited. Sorry, but I probably won't be able to keep up with most of your writing. I will try to pop in and review stuff when I can.

For the moment I am working on finishing some older stories that are all close to "ready for publishing". That's why I haven't posted any chapters for Nihility lately. I will continue working on it--again as time permits.

Anyhow, I hope everyone is doing well!
June 21, 2011 at 8:46PM
    nor84: Great news!
    June 21, 2011 at 9:03PM
    lpstribling: Well done, Arkine! That's fantastic news! Good on you!
