For those following my InuYasha x YuYu Hakusho crossover, Affinity has just updated. Another installment will be coming in the next few days. Meanwhile, I found a bit of fanart in the depths of my archive. Kurama (the male lead in Affinity) is famous for using a red rose as a weapon. James from Pokemon‘s Team Rocket (I officially claim him as my first anime crush) is also prone to flourishing a red rose. So my good friend jupeboxgal created this art for me ages ago. Enjoy!

This guy calms me down. And makes me smile. Both good things when entering the final push on a manuscript.

I rummaged through my fandom file for something to post and found this bit of art for Unspoiled. That fic garnered a lot of attention, from chibi art to full illustrations, cosplay, and even comics. Like this set of panels by Mako.
from Chapter 24, “Showery, Flowery, Bowery”
Too cute! Story art is the best, but author art can be fun, too! Definitely gonna use this to create another blog header. Maybe one day, I’ll have a forth-sona for every mood. Thanks, FoxOfTwilight! ::twinkle::
I have permission from chunxing to share a series of sketches she created for Tsumiko, the title character in Tsumiko and the Enslaved Fox. Isn’t it lovely when an artist can give us a range of expressions and mood, filling in several facets of a personality? Thank you, chunxing! Continue reading
Let’s have something fandom-y today, shall we? I’ve always loved lila-me’s illustrations for Unspoiled. She illustrated every chapter (sometimes every scene within a chapter) and created several whimsical asides.
My Fair Lady by lila-me

When Sesshoumaru came to collect her at the appointed hour, wide, golden eyes took in every detail of her appearance before the young lord announced, “You smell nice.”
Hisoka looked askance at Higurashi and wondered if the young woman realized just how high a compliment she’d been paid. When she blinked and blushed, he thought perhaps she did.

Although it’s not a complete list, by any means, many links to fanart for my stories can be found on this index page >>
Lots of YAYZ! I’m already seeing the beginnings of a trickle of fanart for Tsumiko and the Enslaved Fox, which I most definitely WILL want to share here … but not until more of you have received your copies of the book. (Keeping this blog as spoiler-free as possible.) In the meantime, I just received this from Fox, the artist responsible for my profile picture.

My stories tend to embrace quiet moments. This one is from Chapter 26 of Unspoiled.
In Marble Walls by lila-me
Here’s a bit of fanart for a story that started something of a trend. Impeccable was my first story with 100-word chapters.
Youkai Shitsuji by j lianne-d
I’m regularly reminded by readers that Hisoka-sensei may not be IY canon… but he should be. I have a small pile of fanart for the longsuffering, diplomatic neko-youkai. Here’s one of them!
Disdain by lila-me
There’s been a quiet clamor for fics from those who ship Hisoka with Kagome. I’ve given permission for a few other fandom writers to add him to their stories. And as I’ve mentioned before, Hisoka-sensei has a place in my upcoming original story. Which has seen its share of delays but is most definitely COMING SOON!
Do you remember/like the good sensei?
