Sailor Moon Crystal season 3 trailer is so beautiful! My phone has already crashed. The first four pictures are from Twitter and I screencaped the other six. I am so excited that Uranus has her mask and cape when they first appear.

Not Dead

This blog is not dead, just a little neglected. Okay yeah so a LOT neglected. 2015 for me was consumed with two major cross stitch projects.

 

One was the Laser Disc cover of Sailor Moon S that featured Sailor Mercury (Mizuno Ami)/Jupiter (Kino Makoto).

I also plan to do two more covers one of Mars (Hino Rei)/Venus (Aino Minako) and the one with Uranus (Tenoh Haruka)/Neptune (Kaioh Michiru).

 

The second big project of 2015 for me was a piece call ‘Soul’ but to me it became ‘how many time am I going to un-stitch this and redo it’.

I have also joined the app CraftyAmino as ruka_roxy83 which is where I put my cross cross stitch progress.

Also in Dec I started drawing again through Jan 2016 has not seen much drawing. Currently working on a small cross stitch commission and then I have two fun mini cross stitch pieces planned for myself before I tackle another big piece. Hopefully this will give me time to get back into drawing.

Also give me time to finally finish sketches from 2014 and work on editing some of my fan fiction stories. At least I have a lot to keep me busy.

Sailor Moon Fanfictions

I have been writing Sailor Moon fanfiction since 2006 when I entered a drawing of Sailor Moon turned evil to a contest and one of the rules was there had to be a back story. This thought bubble ended up becoming my first fanfic (as well as multi chapter fic) called Dark Senshi which ended up being 29 chapter with a prologue and epilogue.

I later did a piece of art for each Dark Senshi and then a group drawing of them.

Technopoptart of Deviantart did an awesome line art for me of the Dark Sensh.

After I completed “Dark Senshi” (2006-2008) I wrote quick pieces about each of the Senshi before Usagi became Neo Queen Serenity called “Before Crystal Tokyo” (2008) which only took a few months to write. I got a pretty piece of fanart from nads6969 from Deviantart of all the Senshi in their Cosmic forms.

Then in Aug 2008 I tried to continue the story with “Crystal Tokyo: After The Fall” which sprang from a Juno X Setsuna fanfic I was trying to write but I have not been able to finish the story. While I was working on “Before Crystal Tokyo” I started to work on a fanfic called “First Senshi” (2008-2014) which is about the first girls to become Senshi long before the time of the Silver Millennium. Some of those chapters came easily where as others took awhile to write. Sailor-Aurora of Deviantart gave me some beautiful pieces of some of the First Senshi.

I also write snippets about each Senshi which I call “Senshi Diaries” which I do not believe will ever be finished as I add a new piece when I am inspired.

In Mar 2009 I started working on “Sailor Moon Behind the Scenes” and I am trying to write one for all 200 episodes. I am unsure at this point if I will do the movies/specials or PGSM or Sailor Moon Crystal but there is a possibility. My “Sailor Moon Behind the Scenes” fanfic was inspired by fanart that kymoon of Deviantart did.

The Making Of by Kymoon

My big Sailor Moon fanfiction project which was also started in 2008 is “Senshi Love” in which I write stories based around pairings whether they are canon or non canon. Most are pairings I like but some have been inspired by other people’s fanart.

I post my stories on either DA or FF.net

North Carolina Marriage Equality

I can’t believe it. I am in total shock. Happy total shock. I honestly did not think that North Carolina would ever have same sex marriage.

I just can’t believe that yesterday the same sex marriage ban was overturned in NC. I cried it made me so happy. The night before my wife and I did a handfasting ritual to each other at my house to show our love and dedication to each other. As soon as she found out yesterday she called. I smile because now I know that no matter which one I loose first I can legally marry my wife or my boyfriend but I am not look for that to happen anytime soon because I want them both in my life for as long as I. I am just ecstatic to know that I now the answer is yes no matter who I choose to marry.

Marriage Equality

America has come so far yet is still so far behind. Only 19 out of 51 states and DC is same sex marriage legal. Also eight Native American tribal jurisdictions allow same sex couples to marry. Back when North Carolina was voting on whether or not to allow same sex marriages a straight male friend said that the reason he did not support same sex marriage is because a marriage was a union between one man and one woman. He didn’t care if same sex couples wanted to live together and/or get a civil union, just that he didn’t support same sex marriage. I told him I would be fine with a civil union if civil unions had the same rights a marriages.

Same sex marriage is still not legal in North Carolina and that makes my heart hurt. Ever since I was a little girl I have wanted to get married. To wear a pretty white dress, have my dad walk me down the aisle and dance with him to “Butterfly Kisses”. At the time I always thought I would be getting married to a guy because I was always dating a guy. I never left myself date a girl. Now those are dreams that will never come true. I started to say those are dreams that will never come true as long as I live in North Carolina but that is not the case.

I love my girlfriend and it is not secret to her that I want to marry her. I loved her for year before we became a couple. Even if North Carolina ever legalized same sex marriage we could still not get married because she is already legally married to her husband, whom I am also dating. I love him so much and do not want to be without him either but things with him are less than a year new. I am not at that stage where I want to marry him, yet. My heart physically hurts when I am not around her. I have thought about proposing to her but then deciding against it for number of reasons with the main one being she is already married. I do not doubt her love for me.

She was saying the other say about reality crashing down and dreams and I didn’t want her to know I felt the same about certain things. In away I guess she already knew which is why I didn’t hesitate to write this tonight knowing she would probably read it before I see her later this week. I hate that reality and society will not let us be together completely. I do enjoy my alone time, yet I hate going to bed at night which is why I think I stay up so late sometimes. So when I do finally go to bed I don’t have to think about going to bed.

The other thing is sometimes I do not think my boyfriend will ever get used to calling me his girlfriend to other people. When the three of us were first talking last year and the question was posed if him and I were out together would I call him my boyfriend. I didn’t answer right away because my immediate answer was yes but I knew that would scare him off and sure enough he said there was no reason to call me his girlfriend. I played it off and was like yeah people would see your wedding band and think you are cheating on her. Over the months I have shoved it to the back on my mind and not thought about it. The latest thing though was with a bunch of friends/acquaintances at a coffee shop where we have our regular monthly hang out. The three of us were talking to new people and he was like this is my wife and this is my friend. I had a sad moment but I brushed it off and didn’t let it get to me. Later that night my girlfriend and I were talking to the same couple and the girl was trying to keep people straight so we were like A is with E, R is with D, R is with M, J is with R. Then the girl looked at me and was like so who are you with. I don’t know if she saw me hesitate but I wanted so bad to say I am with J and R but I paused to let my girlfriend say something. When she didn’t say anything I said it was complicated. As the coffee shop was closing down my girlfriend and I was laughing about it cause it was kinda funny cause it was just like out of the blue, oh and who are you with. Cause at one point in the night we both swear the girl looked at me and said “your husband said….” but then we figured she was talking to my girlfriend. She went to go throw something in the care and was like tell what happen and it took me a second to figure out what she was talking about. When I told him he shrugged and said I don’t care who you tell. That frustrated me and made me want to smack him. I think he honestly means he doesn’t care who I tell but he doesn’t realize how much it hurts when he still introduces me as his friend instead of his girlfriend. Then the other day he told my girlfriend he doesn’t want to stop me from finding someone else and having a “normal” relationship. Screw normal! I don’t want normal! I want her and I want him! When she told me that I wanted to cry. Maybe one day I will talk to him about this but I am just not ready yet….

I seem so strong about wanting to marry her and I guess I don’t feel that strongly about marrying him because sometimes I feel like I get mix signals from him. I love him and I want him in my life forever. I want to get to that place where I want to marry him. Right now I am not at the point where I feel the urge to marry him yet I also don’t know why I keep torturing myself with thoughts of marrying her. Things would have to change a lot in North Carolina and in America for me to ever marry my girlfriend the way our lives are right now.
