MISC: Go Ask Alice

Note from the Moderator.

Being the twenty-something fogey I am, I am now having to revisit these communities I built in my teens to engage in an epic battle of good vs. evil. Read: epic battle of person vs. bot.

In an effort to curb the influx of spam in my communities (thanks new management, a fine job you're doing) membership in all of my communties is now moderated. Requests for membership will be evaluated based on a simple review of your journal. I will only reject membership if I suspect a bot (i.e. few friends, many communities, recent journal).

If you feel I have made this judgment in error, you may feel free to appeal but may not receive the answer you want. I am in the habit of reporting blatantly obvious bots and spam monkies, so retaliation won't get you far. Sorry.

This information will be posted in the userinfo for further reference. Feel free to post your questions and concerns, I will try my best to address them. But please understand that I'm old now and have seen more invested days.

Cross-posted like a mother. I reckon I'm spamming myself then.

The legend of Bold Riley

Hey guys! We've finally debuted www.boldriley.com. There are currently five adventures updating by myself and four talented others. If you like fantasy, fairy tale themes and lesbians then I hope you'll come by and have a read!

The above image is a promotional postcard I made to advertise the website for the 08/09 convention season and the Bold Riley story, Wicked Temple which we released in print and the Alternative Press Expo that was held just this past weekend in San Francisco.

Let me know what you think and thanks for reading!

A Collaborative Story Telling Experiment


hi - i'm new here but thought this was relevant to this community out of love of fairy tales.

i am posting today because my friend and i are doing a group project for a class which involves putting together a blog for a collaborative retelling of Rumpelstiltskin. we have taken the grimm brother's text and added to it together, and then posted it to our new blog. now we are hoping people will take our text, change it, add to it, etc., and post a new version of the story as the next blog entry.

we're working on the premise that this kind of storytelling allows new voices to come through old texts, and are interested in exploring what can come out of a collaborative effort like this. so we would really like if you would check it out and contribute! the blog is openrumpy.blogspot.com, and instructions for posting are on the site. the whole thing should be finished by monday morning, so take a look and add your voice! please also send us comments or constructive criticism - we want to make this as good as it can be.

i hope this is OK to post here - please remove if it's not. thanks!

New Dryad work


Begun originally in August of 2007, this surreal painting went through about five incarnations, before it evolved into the piece you see here.

The word 'mind' evokes something which is an attentive supervisor, or a nanny for our impulses, and I wanted to explore the state then, of being absent minded-that which becomes detached and seperate from the process of thinking-symbolised here by a fragile egg, taking flight from a rooted muse.

Called 'Nature of the Fragile Mind', I feel this is one of my strongest works, and you can bid on it by clicking the picture below:
