Serenade - an Etchings story.

It's not really a proper short story, more an extended snippet relating the events in page four and five of Etchings (see previous posts) in more detail.

A note  for those on my flist who are not familiar with Inuyasha: Jaken is Sesshoumaru's servant. He is a small, irascible, wrinkled toad demon.

Anyway, on with the story. It's unbetaed and possibly a little rushed. I can't really tell at the moment.

In truth, Sesshoumaru was doubtful whether stomping down the halls with a lit lantern and an accelerated heartbeat could be rightfully called sneaking, but the intent was plain, even though the execution was abysmal.Collapse )

In which there is snogging, and Kagome's jammies die a swift and honorable death.Collapse )

Had a lot of fun doing this one. ♥

New painting.

PIcked up drawing again yesterday. Don't ask me why -- it just came over me. I found an old Sesshoumaru/Kagome story I'd started but never posted and decided to color it. Here's the result:


The first page is as always boring. It gets better though. I haven't been so excited about anything in ages. Knowing me, I'm not sure how long it'll last, but at least I took the time to do something fun again, just for myself. I haven't done that in too long.

Home sick today. I'm having to run to the bathroom every hour or so. Ugh. I particularly dislike the dry heaving.

And yet, I am still hoping to get some work done later today. We'll see how that goes.

Hi there.

I've been away from this journal for a long time, partly because I wanted to reduce my internet time, and partly because real life didn't stop being busy. It's been busy in a good way though, so who am I to complain?

Over the last few months, L. and I have been busy looking for a new place since the barely 50 qm of our old flat were getting a little cramped. It's been okay while we were still students, but we both work now, and we wanted something a bit more spacious. In October we got lucky and found an apartment close to the university at a bargain price. The negotiations (and talks with the bank plus getting the paperwork ready and making sure the flat wasn't being inhabited by goblins after all) went on for ages, but I am happy to report that since March 1st, we can call ourselves home-owners. Well, once we've paid off the mortgage that is.

With all this and work and dancing I haven't had a lot of time for other stuff. I haven't done any drawing in months (except for a bit of involuntary doodling here and there) and it's already two months ago that I've written anything. I've been too tired to miss it, but I expect I will eventually. And I also expect I'll do something about it once we've moved and settled in.

Been ill for a while -- the monthly blessing of all non-pregnant females decided that a week of torture was not enough, so it stuck around for two months.  In the end it took me ages to get my circulation up and running enough so I could leave the bed in the morning. Not fun. The doctor had no idea where it came from, so I'm glad it decided to get back to normal on its own.

It's okay now though. I'm taking everything a little slower, including work. I've also started exercising again -- really carefully. I tend to get lightheaded pretty quick. I should probably be outside in the fresh air more often, but it's very cold outside. Right now I prefer sitting with a cup of tea in front of the computer to freezing my ass off.

Progress Report #1

A recap of my work week in terms of fitness/exercise:

1 hour of non-stop dancing, 20 mins strength training
Tue3 hours dance training
Wed-- break --
Thu40 mins dancing (with a lot of boxing and lunges mixed in), 20 mins strength training
Fr50 mins dancing, jumping and boxing, 20 mins strength training -- mainly abs, butt and back

Today I'm taking a break again. I'm still pretty sore from yesterday's exercise session, which was my most intense yet. Tomorrow I'm planning to do at least another hour of dancing. If everything goes well I'll be able to extend the exercise to six days a week.  It would have been too much to start with, though. I'm pretty exhausted as it is.

As far as weight/body shape goes I lost two pounds this week and 1.6 waistline inches over the last two weeks.
