My character for the ancient world history/Pokemon crossover group, Pokemon-of-Avalon!
Introducing Amy Apirana Sumiura, the Jigglypuff! This group is a nice change of pace in that I only have ONE main character I have to deal with, as opposed to, like, twelve.

My Personal NPCs:
Okay, so I've been doing a lot of thinking this summer. Considering that I still don't have a job and don't see any chances of me getting one unless I can get to graduate school this spring and get a degree in Graphic Design or something (don't worry, I'm still with my parents, so they're helping me out here), I was thinking of cutting waaaaaaay back on the fanart that gets me nowhere here and instead start working on stuff that can get me moneys, like proposals for original manga series and commission examples. And boy, I have a lot of examples I can think up of, such as Facebook/Twitter banners, dA icons, character expression icons, dA folder icons, dA page decorations, Pokemon team and trainer illustrations (two kinds!), character reference sheets, and more, in addition to the types of commissions I can typically offer. I really want to offer as many options that I can do as possible, as that would probably work the best in terms of getting offers.
So unfortunately, this may mean that I *may* drop out of Auroris-OCT sometime, though I won't decide for sure until I see what Round 2 requires and if that will take up too much of my time. I guess I could use it to try out Manga Studio since I haven't really been able to do so yet.
More tellingly, though, I was also thinking of eventually removing Amy Apirana Sumiura and friends from Pokemon-of-Avalon, not just because of my need to work on things that'll bring in money, but more significantly, I just haven't been able to think of very many ideas for it as of late. About 96% of the RPs that me and ChicoChikorita do together were plotlines I've come up with myself that I want to try out, so if you've been wondering why we haven't been RPing much as of late, that's why. And the truth is, Amy's main storyline and character arc is pretty much already successfully completed. I am really, really happy that this is the very first time that not only I've been able to pull off a romance storyline ending in marriage, but have it actually published too. With another person's character! (Rallen and Jody doesn't count since they're both mine, hahaha.) So that pretty much scratched my itch to pull off a storyline like that, not to mention that because it's by far the most successful incarnation of Amy I've ever done, I don't feel like writing any more storylines with a main character with her name in it. Except for maybe one original story later, but that'll take a lot of time.
Plus, I have a boyfriend now who's soooooooooo nice to me and I really, really love~. Yes, he was a former PMD-E member too, amazingly enough. No, I won't tell you who it is because he deactivated his account and doesn't plan to ever come back. XD
So it makes sense that, since I'm a big fan of happy endings and leaving things at that point, I would eventually do the same to this group here. Amy, Ryoshi, and friends will still technically live in Aether, by the way. They're not going to leave; they love staying there way too much. It's just that we won't be RPing as them in any more new adventures after our great big ending RP coming up after our Mission 4, that's all. This way, Cecil gets to bring in a whole new cast of his own so he can keep on having fun in the group.
If I was still in college, I think things would be different. I'd probably continue on with this along with him~. But given how I just graduated, and he still has like three more years left, and how I have ideas for original series that I want to have published, this is the best course of action I can think of.
Oh, and one more thing. Speaking of original stuff...I just found out today that my entry for Tokyopop's Manga-Fu competition was chosen among the top ten semifinalists!!
(It's pretty obvious; it's the one with Jenna fighting against the first megabeast.)
