IDK. I was wondering if I should start using my more "professional", real name. I made an account on here called "dwgrandy", but I haven't been using it. That's the name I use for my new art blog and to present myself professionally online. Since I sorta take commissions now and have gotten passable enough to show my art to friends and family... Should I drop the "cosmictruffle" moniker? Use dwgrandy for certain things and cosmic or others? OR what? Overthinking time :)

How is erryone? I haven't had free time to draw stuff that isn't commissions which sucks. School is cranking down, I have five essays due in the next two weeks. Chipping away at my belly, found out I've lost 20 pounds since the start of summer (replacing pop with water was a great idea!). Reading a bit, watching lots of TV. Wanna start a Sonic fanfic/comic I've been planning for ages. How are y'all?

Just a random twentysomething who likes dark things, English, art, and video games.

I'm very interested in cartoons, fanart and the like. I try to experiment with many different styles in my artwork as well. I also do a bit of writing on the side, so perhaps some of that stuff will show up here too!


Commissions: Nope
Trades: Selective
Requests: No, but you can suggest stuff if you want

Hey, I know you don't really check this account a lot, but if you do see this, let me say that I LOVED A Joint Venture, and I really consider that to be the best Vecpio fic ever. You did a fantastic job with that fic!

Awww! Thanks so much, that means a lot to hear!

AJV was my baby for a long time. I had soooooo much fun writing it, and I didn't even really make much of a plan. I started working on a version from Vector's point-of-view, for fun and also to rewrite the story, because when I wrote it I was much less experienced at writing. I sort of regret a couple plot points, as well.... but I can't do anything about that.

I definitely do need to re-cultivate my online presence. Having a six-day manual labour workweek takes a lot out of me, and I haven't been very inspired to do fanwork either, mostly been working on personal sketches and writings. I have at least one big Sonic fanfic in me (not slash, just an adventure story that'd probably make a good comic), and one Vecpio slash that's like one-fifteenth plotted and might not amount to anything. I don't feel as drawn to my slash stuff as I used to, but I miss writing it.

Look at me, blabbing my life story. Apologies :P

No that's OK. Glad to see you responded! In fact, let me also say that A Joint Venture is one of the many fics that actually inspired me to start writing Vecpio (they're not on, it's on a different site, but if you really wanna read them, just tell me. I started writing about a month ago so they might not be best thing ever.), and I often find myself re-reading AJV cause of how good it is.

Reading your comment, you mentioned that you sorta have planned another Vecpio fic, do you intend for this to be a sequel to AJV or it's own fic? (you don't have to answer this if you don't want to)

And finally one more thing, you mentioned a comic when it came to your adventure fic, and it reminded of this one time where I wondered if someone actually made a AVJ comic (i guess you could say seeing a whole bunch of sonic slash comics could have inspired that). How do you think that'd be?

Thanks for everything! You really do seem like a great person to talk to! And you ship Vecpio, which makes things double better, cause I barely see anymore Vecpio, I have a friend who drew it and wrote fics, but kinda moved onto another fandom.

Late reply again... I suck. I promise to check this more often XD

I do really wanna read them, if you're willing to share! I'm happy you like to reread AJV, sometimes I do the same, but it's more of a thingy where I just overanalyze all of my work and see what I liked and what I can do better.

The other fic would be standalone. I really want to do something more... diverse, let's say. AJV didn't really involve much besides the romance, and thus the world, to me, felt a bit underdeveloped. I think it could be fun to write something with more thought-out mysteries and action, with the romance still a key point. IT's just hard with the majority of the Sonic game-canon cast being goody-two-shoes, and my lack of ability at creating good OCs to drive the plot. But that might change soon. Maybe more characters having importance besides just the Chaotix trio would be nice, too. But I tend to struggle with getting ideas off the ground. I didn't even really plan AJV and that's the cause of most of my problems with it.

I don't know if I understand that question. Do you mean how would an AJV comic be? Or what I planned for the other fic/comic? To my knowledge, there's no AJV-inspired things out there, but I think there was another Vecpio slash that was a comic, so you might be thinking of that. It could definitely be a fun challenge if I could also expand and fix the story along with it.

I am pretty great, I must say :B I like talking to you too. I'm kind of all over the place these days but I am trying to have nice conversations and actually create stuff instead of mindlessly browsing the net. There don't seem to be any Vecpio folks around nowadays, save for a few die-hard fans. I knew one person I talked to a lot, but she kinda disappeared. I'm also seemingly in the minority among slash writers, being a gay dude instead of a gal, haha.
