    Work that kitchen!

    The sample was one I selected based on a previous survey, which I looked up information for and then examined in greater detail a bunch with certain characteristics. Basically though I chose objects that looked 'redder' than others, which is potentially due to stuff (gas or dust) being in the galaxy of the host radiation/between us and said galaxy. As you'd only see hydrogen absorption if hydrogen is actually there...

    I don't actually go to the telescope (although I probably will at some point) to do the observing here (but incidentally I am going to a different telescope for a different project this week!). In part because as I said elsewhere, it's on the other side of the country! It is operated from Sydney however, i.e. remotely. You can send commands to it to look at this part of the sky and observe for however long, etc. I'm not actually doing that either (it's way too expensive a project - particularly one being developed so it's not even easy to use/software stuff ongoing, etc - to be entrusted to a new PhD student, haha), but I did supply the targets and information, and my supervisors are passing it on.

    Oh, the concept I was fine with, and even more so the reason they wanted it (it was going to be a gift to their girlfriend). However, the thing they wanted me to write about was weird on a whole other level, and involved their irl selves being turned into their favorite anime character along with their girlfriend.

    Also, naw! That's what I call "light reading" (in comparison to Biohazard and Feral Twilight).

    Incinermyn <-The story's also posted too.

    *sighs* I feel a little guilty now because someone else asked me almost immediately after I posted it if I'd take his/her request. We talked it over a bit, and I made it clear I didn't want to do anything too adult, but what he/she described is way out of my comfort zone. I mean, the base concept was very romantic and rather enchanting, but after they described it, I really had to turn it down... :/ The person did give me a choice, though.

    Average prices I've seen for commissions on FA: $5 for line art, $10 for flat colored pics, $15-$20 for full colored pics (including shading), $20-$30 for reference sheets (i.e. pictures describing characters from their colors, anthro/feral forms, and details such as clothing, accessories, etc.). Other art can vary drastically, and almost nothing's done for free. I've been looking for people to do requests for a while, but still nothing. I'm willing to do trades, but I honestly have no idea if anyone would accept full-length one-shots... :/

    Also, for a comic, that's pretty good. I'm not surprised at all, though, since people will pay good money for that sort of stuff. (Oh, did I mention that the person who asked me to write for him said he may help me out getting commission trades if I'm alright doing other works for him too? Nothing adult, of course. He's actually very happy with cutesy kid-friendly stuff, and keeps praising me on that. I actually just sent him a copy of the first draft and he said he loves it to death, basically.)

    Good luck with the moving!

    Well, I am hoping that we get some detections for hydrogen gas from this small sample I came up with! That is more interesting to examine and write about than 'we looked and didn't find anything for maybe these reasons'. Then I can look into more detail (why do some systems show it and not others, what is the gas doing, how that ties to the galaxy morphology, etc etc).

    If that's the case, then I'll be all for charging for my services.

    If it were all originally works, then I may've considered it. But, since it's basically a fanfic, there's no way I'd do that lest risk getting in trouble for copyright infringement. I mean, it's basically all Pokémon, so that falls under fanfics.

    Gotcha. Well, for this story, I'm trying to write a little more like my norm. Not something overly serious, given it's supposed to be both kid-friendly and humorous, but still somewhat intelligent. I mean, Pyra Jya-Luquay is one of the characters for Pete's sake and she alone demands a degree of intellectual conversation.

    wow that wouldof definitely been a weird but insightful process to be put through, although i have the maturity and mind of a middle school student, so once i get in the work force ill be able to confirm that theory lol.

About Me

  • About Slayr231
    My guess is that you saw my bold blue name and wanted to know a bit more about me. Well, you've come to the right place!

    As far as pokemon goes, my first game was Black. My parents didn't want me engulfed by the franchise when I was young, so they never let me do anything pokemon. I felt like I was missing out, bought Black on a school band trip my sophomore year of high school, and I've been hooked ever since. A word of warning, since I came into the franchise so late, I have a tendency to mix up my earlier generations, so please be a little understanding in regards to that.

    I do enjoy competitive battling, and I dare say that my grass team and NU team are pretty good! So, if you ever want to battle, drop me a message and I'll do my best to get back to you. Since I don't have wifi at my house, it will have to be on Showdown. I'm almost always up for a battle or two, so don't be shy about asking.

    As far as non-pokemon stuff goes, I also enjoy writing. Well, it's kind of obvious at this point, but I really do enjoy it. I think it would be amazing to become a professional writer someday, and I'm giving my best shot at it. I have yet to send anything out to publishers, mainly because I'm a bit too nervous to take that step, but I hope to send something out soon. Now whether that actually gets published is a different story, but I'll cross that bridge when I get there.

    If you're interested in writing, don't be afraid to leave me a message! I love getting mail, and it would be awesome to hear from you. If you have any questions about the writing craft, let me know and I'll do my best to answer them. I'm still sort of new to writing, when compared to some of you old folk, but I'm pretty confident in my abilities.

    I've been modding FF&W ever since November 8th, 2013, and I really enjoy it. I get to help people develop their skills and be in a community with fellow writers. What's better than that?
    I also like roller coasters and I play the trumpet, french horn, mellophone (a french horn for marching band), and flugel.

No longer will you have to continuously visit your blog over and over again, hoping someone has come by and helped you with your essay. Now, you can do the exact same thing, but with a thread in FF&W! Thanks to the new [Nonfiction] prefix, your essays, opinion papers, and creative nonfiction now have their own happy, little home surrounded by other literature pieces where they belong. So, next time you have an essay for school, or just wrote an essay for fun (hey, I can't be the only one who...

Alright, so many of you have noticed that I have started a sign-up for a creative writing class. For those of you that haven't noticed, then read on!

Since I think school does a terrible job of teaching creative writing and several people have expressed their interest in it, I'm going to be attempting to teach a creative writing right here on PC. I certainly don't know everything about writing, so this is just going to be an introductory course. Everything you need to know about this...

Hello everyone!

Some of you know that I have been off at a writing conference for the past few days. I'm heading back tomorrow, but insomnia strikes tonight, so I may as well write about it now. I'm just going to tell you about what I learned about not just writing, but about the writers themselves.

The more and more panels I went to, the more and more I learned something. Now, these panels were about a huge variety of topics ranging from asking how many readers is...

Before I start, I would just like to say that I don't actually want to be a garbage man when I grow up. Before you ask me why I chose the title, let me ask you a question first. Why did you click on this blog? What prompted you to read this entry while you could be doing a thousand different things? There are several answers to this simple question. Some of you clicked on this simply because I'm your friend and friends are more likely to read friend's stuff. However, I hope there's another reason...

Well, the title says it all. It's a question I've been pondering recently and I think I just might have the solution. But before we get to that, let's meet our fighters.

Chuck Norris:
Chuck Norris is perhaps the toughest human being to ever walk the face of the Earth. Countless stories and contests have been made spreading news of his, previously to be thought, impossible deeds. From choosing one lucky kid to be thrown to the sun a year, and selling pajamas with his face on it...
