oh hello again!
          	
          	looks like i fell off the face of earth again, but time and time again i find myself back here. there's just so much to do on this website.
          	
          	i'm going to try venture in the forums again, even though the servers have changed and i'll have to relearn a ton of stuff. i'm still trying to find some writing to post (something i won't ditch 1/5 of the way in), but until then, i want to see the new mdc and see what's up with graphic threads and coding playgrounds. 
          	
          	if anyone has any advice on how to navigate the new forums properly, feel free to hit me up!

Hello hello!
          Posted another entry to my graphics book. It's kinda obvious; made a little picspam/aesthetic fanart for THE DRAGON REPUBLIC by R.F. Kuang (because I am very clearly obsessed with this book). I sent it to the author and she posted it on her twitter, so that's exciting!

          THE POPPY WAR series is probably one of my most favorite at this point. I highly recommend it to everyone, but please keep in mind that it IS an adult book and contains very, very dark and often triggering things. It's all handled really well and if it's something up your alley, I'd highly recommend you give it a read! I can promise you it gets even better in the sequel.
          
          Thank you!

Hello hello!
          I've been super busy lately, but I just wanted to drop by and say this: if anyone has read THE DRAGON REPUBLIC by R.F. Kuang, please message me so we can sob for the rest of eternity together because I am SO devastated.
          
          In the meanwhile, I hope I can get a book or another short story or something up soon, but no promises because my schedule is basically all over the place right now. Hope everyone is doing well!

Hello lovelies,
          Just dropping by here to say that I'm going to be busier and more inactive for the next bit, because the semester just started, as did my job. I'm a senior this year and my major is super demanding so I'll be more inactive. Once things settle down, I'm gonna try to design more and get something uploaded though!
          
          Thank you for giving this a read!

Hello hello,
          A question for everyone, if you could take a moment to answer— would anyone be interested in reading "Charlie's Vineyard" or "Crow Come Calling" if they were put up again?
          
          I would have to post completely new versions as the old ones were wiped from my drafts, but it's been a while so I wonder if anyone is interested at all.
          
          Thank you for your time, lovelies!

Eid Mubarak lovelies! 
          
          I decided to post a short stories collection to put up some old short stories I wrote while I figure out how to finish a whole novel. Due to many entries exploring themes exploring mental illness and trauma/abuse, I've marked it as mature. Full content and trigger warnings are available inside, and you can check out the book here, titled "Echoes": https://www.wattpad.com/story/196841199-echoes-short-stories
          
          I also updated my graphics portfolio with the cover for my short story collection if you wanna check that out! https://www.wattpad.com/770059774-little-artist-⭑-a-graphics-portfolio-01-echoes
          
          Hope everyone who's celebrating today has a fun-filled, blessed day, and I hope the rest of you have a great Sunday!
          
          Thank you for reading!

hello hello!
          i've decided to start up a graphics portfolio again if y'all are still interested in checking out my photoshop dabbles! the first entry to "little artist" is up and i hope to update it frequently.
          
          in the meanwhile, i'm not quite sure how to use this new and updated wattpad (especially how to get back in touch with fellow designers) so if you're in on any know-how, please hmu!
          
          thank you lovelies!

Hello hello hello lovelies!
          Your resident dinosaur lokiofasgard_ is back! Not sure if any of y'all remember me but it's been a while and I'm excited to be here again.
          
          I used to go by Serena (Valdez) before but i am switching to a new penname now— Safiya Abdul Mannan.  
          
          At the moment I don't have a game plan in mind, but I'm thinking of possibly putting (a tweaked version of) "Charlie's Vineyard" back up since I've had people asking about it! Will also be designing things here and there in the meantime, although I don't think i'll open up to requests any time soon.
          
          Also, if we were mutuals at any point and we're not anymore, please let me know !! I unfollowed a lot of people before I went on hiatus (long story) but I don't like having a skinny ratio and I'd like to be following old friends/mutuals again.
          
          In the meanwhile, hope everyone is doing well and can't wait to be properly active here again!

@lokiofasgard_ I've been working a lot, I have two part time jobs. It can get exhausting! So I decided to come back on here in time to enter the Watty's and maybe get back into designing.

@_affable oh that would actually be fun! i have no idea how to use the new forums so it'd be nice to figure it out with someone + i want to build up my examples again too so a thread could be fun!
            
            i've been super busy and got just a moment to breathe so i decided to come back on here again. how about you?

_affable

@lokiofasgard_ Yeah! Let me know if you want to start a graphic thread. The forums are so different now, I'd love to have someone to be in a thread with.
            
            How have you been?
