Buffy Casablanca Poster poppy wreath  RS

I'll be away for a little while....

....with my ladylove on a weeklong trip to Vermont. I feel odd going now that I haven't any income coming in but everything was booked beforehand and my sweetie would lose her deposit, so there's nothing for it except to go and have fun, as velvetwhip counseled me. And Gabrielle is never wrong. (Literally, yo.)

Try not to miss me too much Oh who the heck am I kidding? Of course I want you to miss me! I already miss y'all and I haven't left the house yet! My computer access will be extremely limited for the next week and I'm already having withdrawal symptoms and separation anxiety.  I'm also mildly freaked out that 1) we'll come back at the end of the week and the whole house will have burned down again, and 2) I'll misplace my beloved Euclid somewhere along the way. Although he insists on coming along and who am I to refuse him?

Anyhoodle in the meantime and until I return:


1 girl sepia black frame signed

"Scroll Fragment 1"

Either a follow up of sorts to my poster for clockwork_hart1's "Conclusive Etymology of A Summers".
Or a poster that is waiting to find a fic of it's own. Will customize to order. (Snaggable, not stealable.)

Gift the darling, darling kikimay with a gift subscription, if one is able to do so; she would be most appreciative. (No pressure, no pressure, just planting a seed and letting it take root.)
That is one gorgeous poster with which you leave us!

Thanks for the kind words, sweetheart. And HAVE FUN!!!! *hugs you lots and lots*


Gabrielle
Thank you - after the fact! We've just got home two days ago. I admit I've been itching to make art again and I've missed everyone!
Thanks ever so much, I'm glad you like the poster! (Banner? I like the word poster for some reason.)

And we did have a nice time, but I missed being here and playing in the sandbox with everyone.
Have a wonderful trip, darling girl!

Beautiful artwork, by the way! Reminds me of a Da Vinci's painting.
Have a wonderful trip, darling girl!

We went, we biked and hiked and ate (and drank root beer!) and took tons of photos, and now we're back! It'll take me an age to organize the photos but I hope to post the best for y'all to see. My skilz are improving!

(Btw, I love it when you call me "darling girl" - it makes me smile and my cheeks get all warm and pink-y.)

Reminds me of a Da Vinci's painting.

OH! that is an incredible compliment m'lady, thank you so much! I've often said that SMG as Buffy reminds me of a lady from Italian renaissance portraiture. I didn't have that consciously in mind when I made that, but I think I did subconsciously.

I added the title "Scroll Fragment" after I read your lovely comment. Which doesn't make sense (Da Vinci lived after Gutenberg invented the printing press) but I couldn't get that phrase unstuck from my head.
Love the effects!!

Oh gosh, thank you ever so much! I'm so glad it works for you. (I wondered if it would before I posted it, I'm always afraid of overdoing with the effects.)

And unofficially I am back, and with tons of photos - I hope to post a few of the nicest ones. My camera is truly idiot-proof. Vermont was lovely - have you ever been there?
You will be missed. There will be tears befitting of mourning widows in your absence. But have fun! You deserve to have fun and just forget about REAL LIFE for a while. Have the bestest time!

Also: My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark is one of my favourite songs and I have literally no idea what to do with it. Which is crushing. (I'm a scene geek, don't judge me). But I have voted at the 20in20 and... may have entered slayerstillness this round. Though I think i may have made a mistake with the ones I entered because I now think I like my alternatives are better but I still like my entries and hey, decisions are hard.

Oh dear me no, no tears! I hope fun was being had in my absence. Missing me is an entirely proper and correct response, however.

*HUGS YOU*

But I'm back now and all is well I hope, in your world, darling?

You said you'd deciphered my calligraphy from my awful notes, but if you need me to translate my chicken scratch let me know (I have too much time on my hands now)

My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark is one of my favourite songs and I have literally no idea what to do with it.

I don't either but I'm out of practice with text icons now. Funny thing about the song: when I first heard it in afterthebatttle's fanvid, I thought the phrase was "I want to know what you did in the dark" which was all kinds of creepy and invasive and effective I thought, because it conjoured up images of Xander wanting to get in Buffy's private life, and Dead Things' "What did you do, Buffy?" or Willow in Gingerbread...and then I found out what the actual lyric was, and the creep factor dropped way down.

may have entered slayerstillness this round.

*perks up* Which round?

Though I think i may have made a mistake with the ones I entered because I now think I like my alternatives are better but I still like my entries and hey, decisions are hard.

TELL ME ABOUT IT. There really is no way to know what will strike a chord with people. The ones I like best are rarely the ones that do well.
Thanks muchly! (And apologies for thanking you so late, we just got back on Friday - my computer access was woefully limited.) We did have a fun time and I brought back pictures and root beer. :)
You're always so very kind to me. I don't know what did I do to deserve such kindness. Thanks so much! I'm actually fine anyway. Yes, I like more icon but since I personally don't have the money is fine if the account returns to the basic setting.

Enjoy the weekend! Gabrielle is totally right. It's important to appreciate good times since in life everything changes. So hope you have a nice trip! I'll be missing you surely.

(Plus, awesome art. You choose the prettiest picture. I love Buffy in The Gift, she's so beautiful)
I don't know what did I do to deserve such kindness.

Everything you've done - just being you in all your glory, my darling, is sufficient. (I just commented on your exam post, congrats sweetie!)

Gabrielle is totally right.

Gabrielle is a very wise woman!

And we had a fun time and are back now - I've missed everyone terribly! And thank you for the compliments to my poster; she was so pretty that season wasn't she? There's no bad pictures of her in S5 I'd swear.
