- I told myself that I wasn't going to participate in the Zelgan Big Bang, but then I got the most perfect idea, which I outlined to the tune of about fifteen hundred words. Basically I want to write (a highly condensed version of) A Hundred Years of Solitude set in the universe of Breath of the Wild. Even if no one ends up reading it, it's more or less writing itself, so I'm not too concerned.

- In the meantime, I sneezed and four thousand words of Peach/Bowser smutfic came out. This story (such as it is) needs another thousand or so words and a lot of editing, but I'll probably post it at some point over the coming week.

- I commissioned Kathryn Layno to draw a more mature version of Princess Zelda – Queen Zelda, if you will – as an illustration for The Marriage of Lanayru, and she did good work (link).

- I commissioned Promsien on Tumblr to draw Calamity Ganondorf, or what Calamity Ganon would look like in Breath of the Wild if it had a human form. She came up with something truly incredible (link), which has fueled me with inspiration to write the Big Bang fic.

- I kicked off the process of commissioning Lightsintheskye to illustrate The Legend of the Princess, and we've already got one illustration squared away. I'm not sure that she'll post it; and, if she doesn't, I might wait until I've recommenced work on the story to post it myself. In any case, this artist is an absolute joy to work with, and I'm starting to get the feeling that her talent doesn't have any real limits. This is a little scary, but it's also kind of awesome.

- Commissioning people actually involves a lot of writing, not to mention a great deal of creative and emotional energy. On one hand, you could say that I'm just as bad as one of those furries from the 2000s who commissioned multiple artists to draw their Neopet personas. On the other hand, you could say that I am very passionate about art and writing and storytelling, and that I'm simply using The Legend of Zelda as my current medium. I'll move on eventually, but for the time being I think I'm doing good work where I am.

- I translated two pages from the newly released Hyrule Encyclopedia and then reblogged them with added commentary (here and here).

- More tag wrangling on Tumblr. I removed a lot of stuff that I didn't particularly care for yet reblogged just to be nice to the artists and/or the fandom. This made me feel horrible, but it was cathartic. I also deleted a bunch of entries here on Dreamwidth in which I was trying to process my feelings about Tumblr-based Zelda fandom. That nonsense is childish and not worth my time.
