BEDA #15 - Ducks and Dreams

Well, BEDA's well and truly gone out the window this month. After Kitacon, I've not really been in the mood to talk because there's only been one thing dominating my mind lately and it's not something I really want to discuss with anyone. Sorry to be so cryptic.

Here, I'll make up for it by showing you the reason I was late for work yesterday. These little guys were trying to cross the road and I had to stick around and make sure they made it since there were other cars around. So cute :)



Anyway, I've not been drawing much lately because of all this junk on my mind, but I decided to get off my butt and join the pony trend. I've collected ponies my whole life, and I've been involved in the fandom since I got online in 1996, but I've never had a 'pony persona' to use. I've never really bothered before because I'm 'Reaperfox' everywhere and that name has its own identity, but with the huge Friendship is Magic movement, what can I say? I couldn't 'buck' the trend, could I? hur, hur, hur.

So, meet Luau Dreams. I'm not sure of her exact colours yet, but since the tropical ponies have always been my favourites in every generation of toys, I figure that's exactly what she should be. Besides, I've always loved the 'surf culture' aesthetic. Reaperfox represents the Halloween-loving, Autumnal side of me that gets excited every October. Luau Dreams is my beach babe Summer lovin' side. Her 'cutiemark' (god, I hate that term) is a glass of some exotic cocktail, only instead of straws she has paintbrushes. Because I'm an artist. Get it? I wasn't sure if she should be a unicorn or a pegasus; pegasi are far more fun to draw and feel more surf-y (unicorns feel too 'prim' to get themselves all wet and sandy), but I guess with unicorns being creative and emotional, they do suit me better over all.

It says something about my life that deciding all of this was the hardest thing I had to do yesterday.

I hope your mind is at ease, soon. *hugs*

Love your pony, she's absolutely adorable. I think she fits you incredibly well. :)

Thanks love *hugs* I hope so too. I hate being one of those cryptic people on LJ but I kind of want to mention it but not get into it, you know? It's always on my brain so it's mentally exhausting me. ;_;

And thank you :) I guess SOMEDAY I should take surfing lessons. Just to say I had. Would much rather do it in CA or FL than freezing cold England, though :>

Of course, I completely understand. I have those predicaments as well. I think that with me, it's so exhausting and that is why I don't wanna talk about it, because it would more out on me. Or something, close to that. Don't exhaust yourself too much; try to have at least a little time each day where you're nothing thinking about anything exhausting. :)

When you come back to Cali, I can see about arranging for you to have a surf lesson. I will warn you, I can't surf, at all. I have tried, and nearly killed myself trying (the board nearly knocked me out x_x;). But, I know a place where you can get lessons, so if you make your way down here, I will see what I can do. :D

You have no idea how dearly I want to go back to California. I miss the place so much, and WE need to like, properly hang out because the few hours we HAVE hung out have been so, so, so much fun. I'm really hoping I can sort out a few debts (my overdraft ¬_¬) this year so I can start saving to get over there again.
