Hello all! How long has it been since my last --- Oh? October? Well then, that simply won't do. I need to be more open than that.
Anyways, first I'll start with myself. School just let out for the next two weeks for the holidays, which is amazing. Grades are alright and much better than they were earlier this year, so I am pleased with myself there. I'm beginning to mess with college applications and investigate which colleges I might want to apply to, some of my future time might be occupied with that.
Now, the reasons that most of you watch me: my stories. First off, Overthrown released Chapter 16 last month, as did TtA after a long-unofficial hiatus. Chapter 17 is coming along. I didn't write much of it due to a post-NaNO slump, but I have come up with lots of good ideas for it. It is the end of Part 1 of my first story, so I urge you to be on the look out for it.
Transcending the Abyss is now back in full working order, which Chapter 7 being worked on constantly. There's not much else to say other than we're happy to be working on it again.
Now, my newest project: Operation: Saltus Valley.
Operation: Saltus Valley Chapter One [Part One]

It's a spin-off from Overthrown that deals with the backstory of a certain minor character that ties into the main story. It is not necessary to read Overthrown to enjoy it, but there are references to that work that readers of both might recognize. I urge you to check it out. It's a different style than my other stories.
And now, my favorite part. I've been rather busy, but fortunate enough to be able to acquire a few commissions from some wonderful artists I know.
by my good friend and excellent artist,
for an upcoming project of mine...
by the ever-awesome
. It depicts the Scyther, Darney (Pronounced: Dar - Nay) in a scene from Chapter 16 of Overthrown.
for my friends
. We make a pretty good team if I do say so myself. It was a Christmas present to two authors who are completely awesome.
The next few deviations were not commissioned by me, but were either true fan art or part of an exchange.
by a recent friend and reader,
. I appreciate her drawing some much-needed far art for TtA! And, her skills as an artist are improving rapidly, so go check her out if you wish.
. This was the result of a post-chapter review conversation between her and myself. Somehow the topics of how our characters would react in the rain came about and this happened.
all by in exchange for some unused Nintendo Club codes of mine. The first is of myself and my good friend, , while the second is a portrait of two characters set to appear in the same project I mentioned in Mystic's drawing. The third is of Kida the Zangoose and Jack the Golduck from Operation: Saltus Valley (see above).
And there are more commissions that aren't ready yet, but will be here soon. Will update accordingly.
Until the next time, FalloftheKnights signing off...
