Hey everyone, me again!
I hope everyone had a great Summer...well, despite what's been going on around the world. I won't go into it, but according to the news, it's been one heck of a Summer for 2017, and I can only hope that everyone will soon keep a level head and just...calm down.
We can only hope Fall and Winter will settle things down. *sigh* Anyway, nothing really much new with me. I'm still writing my Legacy story and I can't believe it's coming to a close soon. It's been a blast writing it and I'm so glad to be able to use a subject that not a lot know about. African mythology has been sadly ignored in literature and I can only hope through my stories that more people will pay attention to it. Seriously, it's amazing. There's so many different folklore, mythologies, and characters that would put most Greek and Roman mythology to shame.
One of my faves is the story of Anansi, the trickster Spider God from the Ashanti mythology. He's a little bit more known, which I'm glad for, but still doesn't get enough love.
Another that I really enjoy and love is the Yoruba mythology, which my story is based on. I truly love how easy it is to see that many of the Greek and Roman gods we know today are basically derived from them, go check for yourself. So yeah, it was fun and I'm already thinking of new story ideas, like Native American. So we'll see. I wanted to thank those of you who took the time and respect to read my stories and give me the comment, suggestions, and extra eyes for typos I so desperately needed, instead of those who ignored. You know who you are, and I truly thank you.
Anyway, besides that, I wanted to know if there is anyone out there who is willing to do a special kind of pic for me. I'm really looking for someone to do a pic of Marvel's Black Panther and Storm meeting and conversing with my (very) old Sailor Moon characters Sailor Sirius and her cousin Polaris. Black Panther is basically one of the first Black superheroes from Marvel and he has always been my idol growing up in New York. Not because he was Black, but because of how much he cared for his people, justice, and what was right. Sailor Sirius stood for that too, and as she was the first Black Sailor Senshi, and later on her cousin, I thought it would be awesome if they would meet, as I have a bit of Sailor Sirius meeting Princess Tiana, Disney's first official Black American Princess.
So please, is there anyone out there willing to help me out? It's really important to me, especially with the Black Panther movie coming out and I just wanted to celebrate that.
Please note me.
Other than that, I'm just here.
Thanks a bunch, and again, thank you to those here with hearts big enough to take the time to read my stories, instead of just being one of those "SQUUUUEEE! That pic is so cuuuuuuute! I'm gonna dieee!" girls here.
Take care, and have a wonderful Fall.
