Right, I'm Veralidaine, and you might know me as an author on FanFiction.net, but then, you might not. I am a great fan of Tamora Pierce's series (hence the name), but my all-time favorite series is Harry Potter, by the genius known as Joanne Rowling, and this site is dedicated to her wonderfully-written books. Here you'll find my fan fiction, fan art, and just some fun stuff. Those of you who are now-disappointed Tamora Pierce fans, I will soon be doing a Tortall site, as soon as I get my act together. Then you can go there and enjoy the Tamora-Pierce-ness of it all. Keep checking... Until then, sorry, only Harry Potter... ^-^
Since I'm a bad person for fooling you, here are some pics:
A Character sketch of Veralidaine Sarrasri , A (sort of) properly done sketch of Veralidaine Sarrasri, Kitten, and Daine and Cloud. Sorry for the disappointment, guys. I'm working on it!
*cringe* Oh, dear.
Ugh. UGH. Has anyone seen the supposedly confirmed actors for Remus and Sirius?! ACK. Dracula and the crazy Dinotopia guy. Somebody end my suffering, please. In my fit of rage last night I did the above pic, which I'd had sketches for for awhile. Sorry for the cheap-ass coloring. I'm begging for Photoshop and/or a Wacom tablet for my birthday this year. Here's hoping.
But back to my rant. I've been very supportive of the HP movies so far (probably too supportive, actually), and this is making me angry. Those three kids can't carry the entire third movie by themselves - they might have managed to sort of pull it off for the first two, but the most important roles in the third book are Remus and Sirius, and if they get actors who (despite their acting ability) don't look at ALL the part, then the entire movie's shot. I'm really starting to worry. I don't think I'll go see it unless they make some drastic improvements.
Meanwhile, back in internet land, I've updated the fanart (I had to take down the old stuff; it was making me ill). I haven't updated fanfic yet, but I'm working on it. Promise. I took a ton of online quizzes (Yay! Fun-ness!), so feel free to go play with those. ALSO, I've changed e-mails to queen_maeve(at)hotmail.com. My Vink account got very bogged down and scary. It's not feeling too well right now. Feel free to e-mail me at the Hotmail account, though.
Alrighty, then. I think that about sums it all up. Let me know if any of the links/pics/etc. are not working (do it nicely, though, I have a short temper, these days). This was a kind of thrown-together-at-the-last-minute sort of update. I'll try to fix any bugs ASAP.
Let me just end with this: Thank the Gods for Study Hall. My schedule just changed. Woo.
Until next week or so, beannacht!
