For Sale-
One ego- Full of holes
Recycled opinions- whole sale
Semi-tarnished reputation- barely used
A collection of ideas- seemed good at the time
Laughs and giggles- heavily used, good condition
Expections- high and low, didn't meet standards.
Make me an offer.

Some adventure for the glory,
And others for the fun.

And it is all fun and games,
Until the wizard rolls a one.
We adventure for the treasure,
And the paths that treasure brings.

The last few chests were mimics,
Or had sharpened knives on springs.
Did you say something?
I was just admiring the ingenuity of your lyrics...
The road is long and weary,
And we travel through the night.

The darkness hiding ambushes,
And far too often wights.
Are you messing with my song again!?
Who, me? Of course not...
We explore many a shadowed dungeon,
Without any fear of death.

You died by tooth, I died by claw,
And our rogue by acid breath.
Just a muttered aside...
We're the best of traveling heroes,
And we're welcome at any inn.

If you fail your listen check one more time,
You'll be eating that mandolin!
I'm not failing any listen checks!
Of course you aren't. My mistake...
Yes, the road is fraught with per

So apparently I got a daily deviation a few weeks back, for an emoticon I did about six years ago. I did not know that that was a thing that happened. It was a... surprise to see over a thousand (and a half!) feedback messages appear in the few weeks since I last meandered in to check my account.

Woo, though. And also yay.
Thanks to the featurer, and fans and etc.

I guess you deserve some sort of an update on what I am doing currently. Well, I was making emoticons like Factory, and various comics back in my first year of university, when I had more time than I knew what to do with. That sort of... petered out when, in later years, I had much more coursework and - gasp - social events for me to resent attending. This being six years later, I am long since graduated. Now I'm a postgraduate research student (read: science wizard), who spends half of his time researching galaxies (read: SPAAAAAAACE) and the other half trying to relax from the constant, and oscillating stress levels (read: video games). Also stuff like gardening and cooking and blah blah responsible stuff (read: booooring). Point being I have basically no time at all to make pixel art or write anything. Maybe that will change, I 'unno. I tried to write a proper, no-foolin' novel last year, but that too was consumed by the research monster. Got to stop letting that guy out of the lab, really.

And yes, I did just raise your hope of updates with a journal post, only to smash them back down. Your tears are DELICIOUS.
