Very nice! I especially like "Breathless"--the expression is just perfect!

As for "Be Careful"...it's kinda strange to see that one. There's emotion there, but they both kind of look like they're holding back.

"Messed up and off-balanced" maybe? Thanks for the comments!

Very well done vignettes--just the spot for before grading finals.

Re: Arc of the Wolf: True Bearings - Artwork

I just read through this. Lobster Wars is my next chapter. A few comments.

"She sings!" had me all choked up. The whole story of Cory's return home was amazing. Rachel's fall was well done-as someone who's had to deal with that type of situation, I thought you got the "feeling" of the situation dead on. Your explanation of Scotty's work on the Enterprise, particularly the short bit about him going EVA, was dynamite imagery. Usually, when I read anything, I read very fast-superfluous words are ignored and assumed as I gather the 'meat' of the story. It's actually useful when reading some of the less-polished work on this sight. Cuts down on the pain in my grammarian soul. That having been said-I read every word, every sentence you write. It's just such beautiful prose that I don't want to risk missing a key word or nuance. IMO, you could easily support yourself as a fiction writer if you gave it the kind of passion and effort these tales reflect. I'd buy anything you published, guaranteed.

Oh, I can't wait to see what you think of that one.

I'm honored. Seriously, I am. My very favorite author is Norman Maclean, who approached writing as his father taught him: "It's good, now cut out a third of the words." If I ever get to be as half as good as he is, then I'll be happy.

Funny enough, I've never felt the urge to write original fiction; fanfic allows me to indulge in several passions (history, psychology, writing and in this case, Star Trek). I think I get my best compensation from it just... putting it out there and hoping people enjoy it, and maybe even take something away from it. In my day-job of sorts, I'm a stringer for the local paper, where I'm paid by piece to write little human-interest stories. By night, I just read or write fanfic, when I'm not doing household chores.

Again, thank you very much for the kind words. I'm touched, and humbled by them.

Reading my way through the stories and thoroughly enjoying the insight into Scotty [and others]. Your work has a lot of internal drive and honesty to them that I find absorbing. So well done on a great job.

Thank you very much! I hope that I don't end up disappointing by stumbling along the way.

Re: Arc of the Wolf: True Bearings

Well "Lobster Wars" was a kick. And that line about"Understanding what it was like to have a home...." was priceless-I wish I could write something that insightful just once-then I could die content. I have to admit, I was a bit disappointed, though. I wanted to keep reading but it all ended.

::laughs:: Well, it didn't end, but there are a lot of big stories missing between this and the next part. As I said before, if people don't mind reading 'em out of context, there are quite a few more stories. But I've given up trying to explain the parts that are missing, and figured I'd hold off on posting them until I actually filled in the gaps.

Thanks so much for reading, and commenting!

Random picture, from the story 'Bookends'. It is warm and fluffy and makes me happy. The picture, that is, not the story. About an hour and a half (real quick piece) on a Wacom Bamboo, in Photoshop CS2.

Sleepy, early-morning Scotty for the win! It does. I have a thing for warm yellow light. I'm gonna go to bed regardless, but I was glad I managed to successfully draw something for once and finish it.
