Hey everyone! Thank you all so much for the birthday wishes! I usually don't make a fanfare or announce it in real life cuz I'm low key so to get such warm wishes online is always a lovely feeling.

I turn 26 this year... *YES I'M ACTUALLY REALLY OLD NOW LOL* But funnily enough, for some reason I thought I was turning 27. I told my doctor this when I visited her for a checkup and was worried because there's a certain series of vaccines you're supposed to get if you're a woman to prevent you from getting a type of cancer that I forgot the name of lolol. Anyways, insurances usually only cover it until you turn 27, after which you have to pay about $100+ per shot. I thought I was going to miss the cut off date and she was all confused and was like... "No, you turn 26 this year."

And it was like I had actually magically gotten a whole year younger instead of getting a year older!!! *A*

BUT ANYWAYS. Thank you everyone ^^

Now, for the news you've been waiting for. If you follow me on my tumblr account, you'll know that I've finally gotten around to working on Raindrops. I post snippets and little updates and pictures of sketches. But to summarize, I finally planned/thumnailed all of the pages based off of my script and it looks like the total number of pages you'll get for Chapter 8 will tentatively be.... (are you ready for this?) A whopping 85 pages! (cover art/extras not included). That's like a whole book by itself!!! I'm seriously considering splitting it up into 3 acts, but I guess part of the reason why I like doujinshi is that I can dictate how long a story is and when to break the flow.

Anyways, I will sometimes post sketches of the rough pages that I am starting to finally work on now that thumbnail planning is done. Here are a
few:

LOL see those hideous nonsensical scribbles?! They’re all thumbnails of doujinshi layout page planning. I am capping it at a tentative 85 pages total for Raindrops 8. *thank god I never thought I’d reach the end of that script* Slowly but surely… Sketching will finally be able to get underway now! 
Don’t bother trying to decipher what you see they make no sense whatsoever to anybody but me.

Here, have some Sango and Kagome panels from tonight’s Raindrops rough page sketches. 
I’ll just post some of my WIP stuff for now to keep your anxiety at bay. Look I’m working!
(ノ´ヮ´)ノ*:・゚✧

The Inu-tachi from Page 5 of Chap 08 rough sketches.
~(‾▿‾~)

If you want to get more updates on Raindrops progress follow me on tumblr! I most likely will not post any WIP stuff relating to Raindrops on DA.

And while it's good news that progress is finally underway, the bad news is well... IT'S 85 FRICKIN' PAGES. And I usually will not start posting up the doujinshi until I've sketched ALL OF THE PAGES. I don't know if I'll post them up as I clean them (meaning the old formula of once a week) or if I'll post them up once I've finished the entire thing (which means a page a day maybe?) 

Anyway, point is: You probably won't be seeing any actual pages anytime soon. But uhhhh have some WIP sketches to stave off your anxiety!

Also as a side note, if you're a SessKag fan and frequent Dokuga, you'll know that the site is once again in need of some fundraising to keep going! 
One of my oldest running fandoms that I’m still actively a part of since Single Spark was around. Even if I’m more of a creeping participant nowadays, lol. Don’t know what I’d do if Dokuga were to be gone. The site itself is really a testament to the dedication of it's fans, whom have continued to love and create content for this alternative crack couple in the Inuyasha world and it's really amazing! I'd say sesskag fans arguably keep the Inuyasha fandom itself continually alive. Please help if you can!

The site needs about $2574.00 per year to operate, so every little bit helps! Spreading the word would be just as helpful! >.<

Gargoyles Fanbabies: Kitty and Mags by YoukaiYume
Gargoyles Fanbabies: Kitty and Mags

Prompt from Tumblr: "Curious question: I see that you reblogged your obvious love for Gargoyles (the ship is so intense and awesome btw X3) and I was wondering if you ever made or thought of ideas of Goliath and Elisa's children?"

Another fanbaby question! lol Well… I know that the creator stated that they’d eventually raise an adopted human child down the line. But if they actually could have children? Like through magical means maybe? They’d probably look like this?

Twins-maybe?! Elisa’s coloring with a dash of Goliath’s purple. I imagine them to be thick as thieves, constantly getting into trouble and causing all sorts of havoc for the clan. They get along fairly well, but when they fight, it’s an all out brawl and then after they’ve taken it out on each other they’d bond over how many bloody bruises and broken ribs they’d given each other cuz man, that punch to the gut was awesome, amirite? Their parents usually get mad over their tendency to solve problems with their fists instead of diplomacy but they don’t see what the big deal is cuz their wounds will just heal at sunrise, Geez calm down Dad.

For now I’m calling them Kitty and Mags.

Kitty’s actual name is Katherine Maza, named after Princess Katherine. She also goes by Kat, Kitty, or KitKat. Don’t call her Princess or she’ll punch you in the face. If she had a choice, she’d never have to brush her hair. She also has a tendency to try to adopt every stray dog and cat that she finds while on patrol (what do you mean she can’t? They live in a frickin’ castle there’s plenty of room). Kitty is also randomly good at playing the piano which is impressive since she doesn’t have the usual 5 digits of a human. She really wanted to play Violin, but her talons kept severing the strings.

Mags Maza is named after the Magus (because thinking about the Magus still HURTS and I need someone to honor him, OK?!). A lot of fanbabies I’ve seen of Goliath and Elisa are usually female so decided to shoot for a male design. I wanted him to look like a more boyish version of Goliath. His wings are more reminiscent of Elisa’s Wing design (in comparison, Kitty has her Dad’s wings). Of the two, Mags is actually the more level-headed one. When he’s with his sister though, they tend to goad each other on, so they usually have to be separated while on patrol. He loves watching Kung Fu movies—especially ones with Jackie Chan—even the really terrible gems like “The Tuxedo.” Mags is a surprisingly good cook, and can give Broadway a run for his money. He looks up to his Mom a great deal, and one day aspires to be the first official Gargoyle Cop.

As you can see, I had way too much fun with this. why can’t I just draw a picture of fanbabies and be like “here’s how they look” and just walk away?

SessKag: Palm Reading by YoukaiYume
SessKag: Palm Reading
Sesshomaru peered down at the crown of midnight black hair currently bowed over his hand. At the Miko's insistence, and he suspected procrastination from her morning chores, she had offered to read his palm. A ridiculous whim which he had decided to indulge.

"Aha!" Kagome exulted, turning to the Daiyoukai with an impish grin--as if she had discovered a great secret. Perhaps she had. "This here," Kagome pointed to a tiny, faint cross mark on the mound that connected his thumb, "indicates that you harbor a deep, unrequited love!"

He blinked, a fine brow lifting in mild surprise. Well, the Miko might have some talent after all. Kagome took his passive silence as confirmation, her smile grew wide with scandal.

"I'm right aren't I? Oooh who could the unsuspecting woman be!" She crowed in delight, her hand coming up to her chin to stroke a mock beard in deep thought. "Who could have caught the eye of the Mighty Lord Sesshomaru and dare deny his suit?"

The beginnings of a wry smirk tugged at his lips. Golden eyes took in the all too pleased miko through silver lashes. If she had bothered to see beyond what was in front of her...If she would only note the subtle way his fingers instinctively curled with the desire to catch her hand that still hovered above his palm--or to the way the fur of his mokomoko fell over her feet to warm her from the morning chill...she would have found the answer to her own question.

It was already enough that she belonged to his brother; must her naivete also serve as a reminder? Unrequited indeed.

"Hn. You are as blind as you are insightful," Sesshomaru huffed in amusement. His reply caused Kagome's cheshire grin to melt into an adorable pout. One that, had she been paying attention, would have noticed how the Daiyoukai leaned slightly forward with the barely restrained impulse to kiss.

Once again before anyone asks:

No I haven't forgotten about my doujinshi Raindrops.
Yes it will continue eventually.
No I don't know when. Please don't ask.
And lastly I'm going to continue to draw what I want when I want it, that includes Raindrops.

SeiyaXUsagi Fanbabies by YoukaiYume
SeiyaXUsagi Fanbabies

Someone on Tumblr inquired about Seiya/Usagi fanbabies.

Talk about opening a can of worms! Are you ready? Cuz when I create fanbabies, I don’t joke around XD

I actually designed a Seiya/Usagi fanbaby years and years ago that I only posted about once. But the truth is I had an entire backstory worked out on Seiya/Usagi’s relationship post Crystal Tokyo. You can still see some concepts for it in my DA gallery (most of which were just Kinmoku fashion). Since it is unlikely I’ll ever have time to get around to actually writing it I’ll just do a summary on their kids:

Princess Hikari— “Sailor Moon Fighter” is a result of an illicit love affair between Neo Queen Serenity and Seiya whilst they were visiting on Kinmoku. After they parted and Serenity returns to Earth, she discovers she is pregnant with Hikari. Since both Seiya and Endymion shared similar hair and eye coloring, Hikari looked close enough to Endymion that no one questioned her parentage.

When Empress Kakyuu and her Starlights visit Earth several years later for Chibiusa’s coronation and marriage to Helios, Seiya quickly realizes that he is Hikari’s biological father. This is undeniably confirmed when she awakens as Sailor Moon Fighter.

Hikari herself is very mature and perceptive for her age. Even though she felt she never quite fit in especially with Endymion and her role as princess, she always tries her best to never disappoint, and is a bit reserved. She actually shares a very close relationship to her half-sister, Chibiusa to whom she always looked up to. It was in trying to protect her elder sister during the coronation that caused her to transform to “Moon Fighter” and much to her deep regret resulted in causing a rift between them as it revealed her true parentage. Eventually, she leaves with Usagi and Seiya to traverse the universe after Usagi separates from Mamoru on mutually amicable terms. (especially after both parties feel that they've fulfilled their destiny, the well being of Crystal Tokyo is secure with Chibiusa, and they are both finally free of obligations)

Despite finding happiness with her new family, she always felt unwavering loyalty to Chibiusa and eventually returns to Earth—not as a Princess, but to serve as one of the new Queen’s Senshi, and the two reconcile. Even further down the line, she will become close friends with the fairy, Perle (Peruru). Hikari’s name means “light.”

Aika—“Sailor Star Singer” is Usagi and Seiya’s second child. She was born not too long after they started their travels. Because her family is rather nomadic and adventurous, Aika is used to living a carefree lifestyle. She is definitely more tomboyish than her elder sister, and her constant cheerfulness can sometimes bulldoze and overwhelm others to exhaustion. She can also have a quick temper but forgets grudges easily.

When Aika awakens as a Sailor Star Singer, she chooses to live on Kinmoku. There, she befriends and becomes close with Ami and Taiki’s daughter, and fellow senshi, Sailor Star Seeker. (eventually she will also gain the ability to switch genders at will). Despite her new role as one of Kinmoku’s Starlights, Aika still gets bouts of wanderlust now and then, and is considered untamable by a lot of friends. Aika’s name means “love song.”

—-In some of these sketches, especially in their family shot, you can see their clothing fashion is pretty inconsistent. This is mainly because they’re star hopping so often they adopt whatever foreign fashion is available to them. Even after their children choose their own paths, Seiya and Usagi are happy to continue to travel the universe together and experience new things.
