Voltron is done :(

No spoilers here, but I teased myself a lot and read the spoilers ahead of time (I hate surprises).

Let’s just say that I was still shocked at how emotional I got when the end came! I heard of this anime a year ago and was sucked into it faster than a speck of light to a black hole. And never came out again.

I’m a Voltron LD fan for good…despite the fandom (which at times) is a bit toooo crazed. (petitions anyone)? It’s still a cartoon. Let’s keep things in perspective, shall we?

I’m still hoping for a sequel…Coran’s early life? Shiro’s new life? What happens to the Lions and the Garrison now?

Hubby and I are seeking out new anime to binge-watch of the same caliber as this show…any suggestions?

Voltron last season…sigh

vld

Noooooo! How can it be so? After eight seasons my recently (last year) discovered addiction will end. 😦

I haven’t seen a single episode of season eight just yet, but I did read some spoilers…which I won’t share. I know how part of it ends at least; but the fun part will be seeing how it gets there.

I’ll miss this show. I fell in love with the fan art and started making my own. I painted, drew, posted, etc. I have several whole boards on Pinterest dedicated to Voltron; including a lot of favorite ‘ships’. (couples that the fandom wants to put together).

After this ends I’m hoping for a new series, that this will go the way of Star Trek (TOS) and be renewed again or maybe a couple of movies? Spinoffs? We’re on the what sixth version of Star Trek now? Let’s see those brains stretch just a little more.

To all my fellow fandom members, it’s been an honor serving with you. Later, Paladudes.

2018! New marriage, books, and insights

Happy New Year all! It is the dawning of a brand new year…can you believe it’s 2018??? Where has all the time gone?
The older I get, the faster it goes.

So, with the start of a new year, I am drawing up my guidebook for the year; a little hint I got from an organization site on FB. To sketch out what you want to accomplish for this year. So…here goes.

First, new marriage 🙂  We are nearly three months in and still very happy.  I lost my job (as is usual in my lines of work) but we remain strong and committed. I toss out ideas and he likes them; but he is highly conventional and thinks sticking with established lines of work will pay the bills.
While I agree, I have my goals and dreams of having my art and creativity pay at least some of it.
Otherwise, we are a crazy happy couple taking care of our elderly cats and parents. 🙂

Second, my books!  In a few days Southern Comfort 5 will be released; the last in the series. 
Also, the first volume of Upstaged is on its final round of edits!  Looks for that soon 🙂
A major plus…I came back to Gay Authors site with a book that was written last century (omg) but has been edited and even has a cover; but I wanted feedback first. WOW am I ever getting great comments! I hope the rest hold up and this puppy will go up for sale, hopefully to delight the many who are not on GA.

Lastly; my insights into the new year. As many know, I do not ever post politics or religion; and I won’t start. I’ll just put out there that things are a hot mess, but they have been for a very long time and it would take more than a mortal man to fix things. Humans are greatly unchanged at their base levels and I pine for the world of Star Trek, where things seem to be much better. (call it a fiction-lovers fantasy).

My goals for this year beyond the books are to: find a day job to pay the bills (in my state), knit (for profit and non alike)…release a coloring book for adults, and to begin to sketch again to my newest love, Voltron.

What are your goals and aspirations?

Good luck and Happy New Year!

Steph
