Delays for Geek Fun

So this past weekend was Comic Con here in Seoul. Unfortunately, it means that I didn't have time to edit appropriately. I will add Chapter 8 - The Grotto's Secret on Saturday with the following chapter back on normal schedule. 

As for Comic Con, it was the first time I had ever attended one so I thoroughly enjoyed myself. 
Inside Comic Con, Day 2
It was Friday, Saturday and Sunday, but I was only there Saturday and Sunday. On Saturday, I dressed up as a modern Jane from Tarzan. It was fun. Today, friends and I went through as members of SIMS. 

Then there were three
First there were two
 The one on the left is the creator of these fabulous little trinkets. They succeeded, and were brilliant for finding one another in the crowd.

The cosplay (costumes) were amazing. Mine wasn't so great, but I saw some beautiful ones throughout the course of the weekend. 

My favorite part - besides being there and seeing so much geek - was my bag. I liked this not so much because it's fantastic, but because it turned out better than I expected it to. It's another one of the wearable art items. I love having the ability to create items with electronics. I don't like making robots, but I like adding sparkle and shine to my things.  Since I went as Jane, I wanted to add something to my bag connected with Jane and Tarzan. This line is one of my favorites: "Are you sure it's sanitary?"

My family knows that I'm slightly scared of germs. Not a lot, but I tend to take the safe road when possible. 
I hope some of you were able to enjoy gathering with fellow geeks whenever possible. It's an awesome opportunity to meet people on your same wavelength. I'm fortunate that my family is fairly geeky, just not quite the same level of geek.

Chapter Four - The Board and Council

The town center was the oldest and grayest part of the town, though, even there the buildings were still colorful with the stone buildings being blue-gray, pink-gray and lavender-gray. In the center of town, marking the absolute center of the town, was a park area with a fountain in the center, the fountain led down into an underground grotto which was currently overflowing with people not unlike the fountain above it. “Looks like it’s connected,” Ramses said. “I think Mederei said it was had healing properties.” “That would be the place to look for the tapestries.” “Mama,” a child whispered loudly. Why was it when children whispered they yelled? “Why is that man so brown?” “Shh, honey, he’s probably from the capital region.” “No, Mama, they’re black, he isn’t. He’s brown, and scary looking.” The boy, blonde haired and blue eyed like his mother, was probably from the town. It was said that on the Isle of Caergwl├ón, the darkest were those in the capital and from there, they lost their color…

Chapter Nineteen - Negotiations

And we're back! Apparently my computer was sick, needed a reboot and now I'm in the process of organizing it all over again. Ah well. 

She was annoyingly brilliant, stubborn and naive; he was equally brilliant and stubborn, but not as naive. Kiango and Mederei were too valuable to the kingdom to remain in constant battles, but that's where they often found themselves. Both trying to solve a problem to help their families, friends or kingdom, but often going about it the completely opposite ways. Both had the power and prestige related to their families, and both wielded that power in strange and unusual ways. Kiango used his influence to lead the younger members of the society, but unlike other members of the royal family, had little magic. Mederei's magical power had to remain regulated and hidden because of the rules. How much of Mederei's ability Kiango knew about though ... They would always remain in conflict with one another, but there had to be some way they c…

Winter Hiatus

It's really chilly here in Seoul at the moment, so I took advantage of my Christmas present to weave some more cloth. Also, due to it being the end of the school year (Korean schools run from March to February), I'm currently busy with finishing up school, and getting things ready for next year.

All that said, I'm taking a hiatus from Mederei's story until March. Thankfully, I'm not leaving you on a terrible cliff-hanger, though. Posting in January and February will be sporadic as I find the time to write while getting other things done. 

For those interested in the weaving, the brownish color has flecks of gold in it, but is a rayon, acrylic mixture. The black is cashmere I received back in Buffalo a couple years back. It's been woven and washed and looks freaking amazing. I think I'll make it into a dress.

Below is a photo from the light show in downtown Seoul. It was beautiful, but cold that night.

Stay warm!
