Still Alive by loppytaffy
Still Alive
Literally a small update to let you know that I am still alive, and to give Darren an updated versian of his Red X suit (though a little battered)
Any of you who watch me may have noticed my inactivity lately. While I am not leaving dA (how could I, when joining this community was a turning point in my artistic development?), I am winding down.

I'd like to say that the stress of balancing work and house maintainance with family and social time doesn't leave me much room to relax; 12hr shifts, 6 days a week, pretty much leaves me just two hours to clean the house and remind my family that I am indeed still alive.
However, I do get a lot of time in work (depending on where I am working) to carry on with my fics. So that isn't really the excuse.

I no longer have a scanner, and without accompanying art to my fics (and new characters), I don't really want to post new chapters. However, I have used bases before and, if I truly wanted to, I could takes pictures on my phone and touch them up in MSpaint. I have done digital art long before I had a scanner. So that isn't really an excuse, either.

Unfortunately, it is a lack of passion for it. I have a long story to write for Raising Teagan, and I'd very much like to get comics drawn up to illustrate the origins of some of my characters. And the more I draw and write for Silver and Lorraine (as well as five other linked characters), the more I want them to have an original story outside of DC fan AU.

Added to that, I have been playing with two original stories of my own (a poetic short story, and a long webcomic), and with absolutely no starting point or preset boundaries, I am having trouble finding a setting; I know what characters I want in it, and roughly how I want their lives to be, but the story and aspects of it...they trouble me. Freedom is very restricting.

If you want proof that I am still alive, I go on tumblr very frequently ( It is not a Teen Titans or DC blog in any way, shape, or form, nor is it a place where I upload my art. It is where I get involved with other franchises and am just an observing fan.

Aside from that, eventually I will continue Raising Teagan, I will not leave this story unwritten. Thank you for sticking around.

I doooo! I dooooo! I'm just in an artistically difficult place right now (I have two or three original stories that I want to write/draw, and I haven't a scanner to update here)- I'm not "active" on dA so to speak, so I'd suggest getting me on Tumblr if you have one (
