This is a mirror for Lionchilde's LJ, which may, if LJ continues to suck, become Lionchilde's main blog.

This post is pinned. Scroll down to view updates on my fiction, graphic art endeavors, occasional rambles, and (very rarely) my personal life.

You can also find a lot of this information on my sidebar, but not all because I like to keep it somewhat cohesive and simple to navigate. Since my profile page is a bit...shall we say...eccentric in style, I decided to make a post that might give people a hint about what actually goes on here and where to find the important stuff. Or possibly to run away. This is your last warning. Mwhahahahaha.

Currently, my layout is by [ profile] fruitstyle. The header is by me. If you don't know what the text refers to, you probably don't want to hear the long explantion.

Council Law
This journal is governed by The Evil Genius Council and does not conform to the normal rules of society, the internet, or the universe. Council Law is as follows.

Respect others and respect yourself. If you cannot disagree without being rude, don't post a comment.

COMMENT if you download or read something. It helps us know what is of interest to you. It's not necessary to comment on every post, but an occassional "Hey, nice set of updates" is appreciated.

Visit [ profile] so_out_of_icons to view Lionchilde's graphics that are for use by other users. This journal was created for me to monitor my own growth and there are older posts here that I would prefer people not to snag from.

DO NOT re-upload Aruna7's fanvids to YouTube. Epecially do not re-edit her openings and call them your work.

DO NOT post Lionchilde's graphics as your own. People will know anyway and you will be mocked mercilessly.

There will be no fandom bashing.
Similarly, ABSOLUTELY NO Lucas bashing. We don't always agree with his decisions, but Star Wars is his baby. If you don't like his decisions or his direction, make up your own universe and film your own movies.

You were a newbie once too. No matter how much you know about your fandom, there will be someone somewhere who knows more than you.

Violations of Council Law are punishable by frying pan and mockery.

Index of Completed Fanfiction Claims

Housekeeping post. All of my outstanding fanfiction claims are now complete (Go me.)

I've decided to make a single index post instead of different ones for each year because it's easier for me to see if there are links instead of just the collected prompts.

I don't know if I'll be making new fanfic claims this year or not; original project is taking priority right now.

These links are to the claim tables. Don't try to read the fics in the order they appear on the tables. Most of them are chapters from larger works. Use the tags or links in my profiles.

I am back! And I come bearing goodies

Hi guys, I know it's been forever, but I'm back with my own website now and with any luck I'll be able to post resources consistently.  (No promises on fanfic or anything else.)

Renewal prev 2
Download here on my site

These are free samples from my Premium Digital Resource theme pack for May. There are three soft-grunge textures. Each is 12"x12" (3600x3600 px) @ 300dpi.
View and download individual textures on Flickr. (There are extras in the gallery that won't be zipped; feel free to grab those as well.

  • Any creative use is allowed. Use them in your projects, designs, and composites. Please don't redistribute them as is. You can read my full terms here.

  • These look great both as backgrounds and overlays. Sample pack two uses one of these as an overlay. I'll have some more usage samples up over the weekend.

The longest six weeks of my life

Hello F-list! I know that I promised a fic update sometime in July. It is coming. I have had chronic tendinitis in both arms and I'm relying on text to speech software to make my blog posts and do any writing. I have another doctors appointment for it on 18 November. I still don't have a regular beta reader, but [profile] stargatefangurl has been filling in. There's a lot more beta-ing involved when using dictation software. Let's just say I have a lot done on Force Heritage, but it isn't all done in chronological order. I hope to start getting things up sometime this month.

Fic Rec: Sleepwalker

So, you guys know I don't do this very often, but I have a fic rec for you. Masters of the Universe fans, I believe you'll enjoy this.

Read my full rec here.

Also, for anyone who remembers the MOTU story I started back in 08 I'm still looking for a beta reader, but it will take some time between updates if I start it again.

Is Walking Better Really Better?

I posted this on my writing journal. I thought it was important enough to re-post here too. It's about as "personal" as I get on the internet. Deals with cultural expectations and body image, so if those issues bother you, just skip it.

Deco Dragon Eggs

Here's something for all the paper crafters out there.  I haven't tried these, but they do look like they'd make cool part favors or decorations.  They're free until May 19, 2013 at the store. Click the images go to the download page.

Deco Dragon Eggs 1

Two more after the cut.

These are available in .JPG format by clicking the "General" download.

 They'll work in any image program, but if you're interested in MyMemories Suite, my referral code is STMMMS69181. You can use that code any time for a $10 discount on the software (regularly $39.97) plus $10 in free store merchandise.

Donation Packs--Please help a little if you can.

For my design blog Please check this blog post for information If you've donated already, please leave a comment letting me know you'd like the link. Thank you for any assistance!


Hello everyone. As I mentioned in a recent post I hurt my arm really badly. It's worse than I initially thought. I don't know when I'll be able to go back to work, since my job is to type for my boss. I had a lot of unexpected big expenses in 2012, including emergency medical bills, medical equipment, and doctor visits that I needed to pay for out of pocket. Those bills are taken care of and I have enough to get by on, but things are going to be very tight.

I need a new computer. I'm not sure I can afford that, and I know I can't afford to do that and continue pay for the hosting costs related to this blog. (It's a blogspot page, so yes, it's free, but all of the content is hosted privately--and there is a lot of high res content, so I can't just switch to free plans.  Once my paid accounts on PB, Flickr and Mediafire go, so will all the freebies. That includes not only the resources but ALL of the livejournal/dreamwidth icons, all of the free graphics, and anything else that I have posted there over the years.)

I really love doing the blog, and it's important to me to keep as much of my content as possible free for everyone to use.

So, this is what I am going to do. I am looking to raise about $500 toward a new computer and/or $100 toward hosting costs.

In the next few days, I will be adding several more gift packs.

Anybody who donates any amount of money--even a dime--can choose to download ALL the gift packs I offer.  Just post a comment or leave your email address in the comment box on paypal and I will send you whatever ones you ask for.

Anybody who donates $5.00 or more can request a custom pack.

If you are on Livejournal or Dreamwidth, you can also request custom icons.
Anyone can request a custom site header or a wallpaper or other large graphic.

$1 gets you 10 icons or 1 large graphic.
$5 will get you 50 icons or 5 large graphics.
The more you donate, the more I will do for you, up to 250 icons.

I would prefer not to do slash pairings--NO, I am not a homophobe, I just think the vast majority of slash pairings in my fandoms are weird/gross and I can't type enough to provide a list of what I will and won't do--but at this point, if someone wants to donate for that, I'll consider it.

You can click here to visit my blog and use the donate button in the sidebar. You do not need a paypal account.

Thank you in advance; I really appreciate any help you can give.
