For those that frequent both communities, you may have noticed that the 2010 Princess Tutu Secret Santa event just got rolling.
Due to work and etc, I'm not going to have time to do this for [livejournal.com profile] theslayers this year. Heck, Asatira is having to do most of it for PTT this year.. Someone else will have to take it up.

I know a couple of the mods are on my FL. Because you guys are awesome and inexplicably put up with me. It seems weird to post to the comm with nothing but an I can't do it this year... I don't even have some Slayers art hanging around to buffer with. But if anyone asks about it and is willing to do it instead, I can send all my stuff from last year along.

I just finished coloring so much secret Santa art in the last couple of days, it's crazy. And my hands aren't killing me yet. A little ache~y, but not bad yet. Small miracles.

All of my Secret Santas for the 3 I participated in have now delivered, and I love my gifts.

Downside of being an artist doing virtual Secret Santas, there is no secret once you start posting. I'm surprised that some people recognize my stuff, but I guess my "style" is pretty solid these days.

So now to share my secret santa stuff (received and given) here.

I'd say not to look if you think you had me, but I'm pretty sure you two have already figured me out correctly. (Besides, the reveal is tomorrow.)

And to end things out, Happy New Year!
...and a couple of Mucha-style pieces at the line-art stage.

Still more art in the pipeline.

So who would've ever guessed?
[livejournal.com profile] asatira and I pulled an April Fools prank yesterday. Haha. And evidently, we had quite a few people going on it.

Anyway, if you've ever read "The 213 Things Skippy is No Longer Allowed to Do in the U.S. Army", this is along the same lines. Only with Fakir. And Kinkan Academy. And stuff.

So without further rambling from my diseased self, here's "The 30 Things Fakir is No Longer Allowed to Do at Kinkan Academy."

  1. Not allowed to violently shake any other student.

  2. Not allowed to grab any other student.

  3. Not allowed to touch any other student except during supervised dance practices.

  4. No, especially not Mytho.

  5. Not allowed to lock Mytho in any of the following places: bathroom, bedroom, janitor's closet, library storage room, Mr. Cat's office, girls' dormitory, dungeon, or crypt.

  6. "Because he had an opinion" is not a reason to punish someone.

  7. Not allowed to use the Lohengrin Sword to settle verbal disputes.

  8. Odette did not "have it coming," and that was a horrible thing to write about Swan Lake.

  9. Ahiru's hair is not a toy.

  10. Nor is Ahiru's hair a leash.

  11. Nor is it a handle.

  12. I must not challenge people to duels while drunk.

  13. I must not drink alcoholic beverages.

  14. If I'm going to bitchslap people, I should be prepared to receive the same.

  15. Must not call Rue a skank anymore.

  16. Once was okay, but throwing water at Autor on three separate occasions goes beyond the definition of "turnabout."

  17. The crows will not eat me.

  18. "The pen is mightier than the sword" is purely metaphorical, and I should not test this.

  19. I must not assume ownership of any other person.

  20. Calling Princess Kraehe "a mangy, carrion-feeding, half-molted crow" is probably a bad idea.

  21. Must not tell Ahiru's blonde, pigtailed friend anything negative about my mood, situation, or state of mind.

  22. I do not have to fight for Mytho's honor.

  23. The answer to "Fakir, I'm bleeding" is not "Live with it."

  24. When Mr. Cat asks me if I would like to demonstrate a grand jete for the class, I am not allowed to reply "No," even if it's true.

  25. Not allowed to tell Autor that if he likes The Prince and the Raven so much, he must call me Lohengrin.

  26. Not allowed to demand that Autor call me anything but my given name, including the word "Master."

  27. I am no longer allowed to sleep in the library for three nights in a row.

  28. No "paper mill" jokes around the Oak Tree of Wisdom.

  29. When dancing the pas de deux from Giselle, I must not drop my partner and say, "It looks like she's alive after all!"

  30. There is no such thing as a living nutcracker, and I must not tell Ahiru otherwise.

  31. I must not threaten girls for looking in Mytho's general direction.

  32. Even if I am a knight, murder is still illegal, and I should not threaten people with it.

  33. Even if I really do mean it.

  34. Not allowed to force the town to skip Autumn and Winter just because it's too dangerous for Ahiru to migrate.

  35. Not even is she is "that bad" at being a duck.

  36. Not allowed to use "Drosselmeyer forced me to" as an excuse, even if it's true.

  37. Not allowed to bring "live steel" into class as a ballet prop.

  38. Must not call Drosselmeyer "sado-masochistic old bastard". (He's your grandpa, and not above teaching you respect by sticking you in a story again.)

  39. Not allowed to run down the streets yelling "You're all being controlled by a story!" It takes forever to calm down the old men in the "Neighborhood Watch".

  40. Not allowed to throw your dorm-mate out a window, even if they can land just fine.

  41. I am not authorized to teach the younger ballet students.

  42. I am no longer allowed to provide musical instruments to children.

  43. May not test story ideas out on my classmates.

  44. Even if it is Femio.

  45. Not my teachers either.

  46. May not reserve front-row seats at the ballet recitals for water fowl.

  47. May not perform a pas de deux with a duck for class exams, regardless of my relationship with said duck.

  48. Or at stage recitals.

  49. Must not start any story with "Once upon a time, there was a man who died...".

  50. May not challenge anyone teachers or upperclassmen to the "field of honor".

  51. No longer allowed to perform ancient rites on magical swords in the main square. (Cleaning the blood out of that fountain took weeks.)

  52. May not trade your new roommate out for a bird.

  53. My teacher is not an animal, and I should stop implying that he once was one.

  54. I am not to threaten Lillie for "putting weird ideas in Ahiru's head". It just can't be helped.

  55. May no longer create Frankenstein-esque children out of wood.

  56. Or any other material.

  57. I am not to point out that most of my classmates will never make it as ballerinas.

  58. Talking to Ahiru's friends will only result in pain, hers or mine.

  59. Talking to Ahiru in front of her friends will only result in pain, hers or mine.

  60. Not allowed to write stories causing woe to befall the Neighborhood Watch, as that will only make them more determined to stalk me with intent to harm.

  61. Not allowed to threaten any potential suitors of Ahiru's with a sword.

  62. Even if it is Femio.

  63. Not allowed to compare Ahiru to an alligator.

  64. Or a cow.

  65. Not allowed to give Ahiru's friends false gossip.

  71. Not allowed to destroy clocks of any size because "I don't like the gears."

  72. Not allowed to write departures from Kinkan for annoying acquaintances.

  73. Especially not Ahiru's annoying friends.

  74. Not even Femio.

  75. "Moron" is only a term of endearment from my perspective. Others may disagree. Violently.

  76. Not allowed to hide Mytho's pants as punishment. He won't care, anyway.

elfgrove: (plotting)
I'm writing all the names on papers right now and throwing them in a green leprechaun-type hat (I have it from St. Patrick's day, I'm not THAT weird.) I'll start pulling names in a few minutes.
51 participants.

EDIT: Okay! All of the name match-ups are done. I'm sending out assignment notices via DA Notes or LJ Private Messages. Whatever way works, but I'm trying it with LJ-PMs first.

Your LiveJournal Private Message inbox should be located here Give me a day or two to ship all of the assignments out. It's gonna take me a bit. There are 51 notices to send.

Asatira, Coppelia, if you can give me a hand on this part, I'll email you part of the match-up list and the draft form letter I'm using to notify assignments. You two should each already have your assignments in your LJ inboxes.

EDIT2: Also...
Cosplayers? Larpers? LAWL.
