And yet again I’ve managed to fail the simple task of writing an update on my day off. This time, however, it’s more negligence than forgetfullness. I finished my writing for the first half of 106 and had a few hours before I needed to go to bed. Dciding to take a break I took the rare oportunity to spend some time with Menoly.

Naturally, I got carried away shooting shit and didin’t have any time left.

So, instead I’m typing most of this up before work and will finish it when I get home because I need to trim my Bonsai and post some pictures with this update.

So, let’s jump into the things I can cover in this update.

We’re making regular progress with chapters, though not as mcuh as I would have liked. Which, of course, means I’m keeping up the the need but not really building much of a stockpile. Chapter 106 is halfway done and I hope to have it at least 3/4 of the way finished by my next weekend.

Of course I have a pile of other shit I need to get to as well, so let’s hope I can get through ti all. I also realize as I write this that I didn’t even touch the lemon I was working on over the weekend so I have no idea when that’s going to be anywhere close to done.

I really need tro sit down and type up a list fo all the shit I need to do but I really don’t like the idea of looking at it everyday and realizing I haven’t made any progress.

Eh, I’ll get to it….eventually. Writing it all down has been at the top of that non-existant list for months. A few more weeks won’t hurt. Probably.

What else do we have?

Ah, the Patreon is back up to where it used to be, so we’re getting close to that 10% mark. There were some declined payments back on the first that dropped us down to 7.2%. We’re back up to 8.4% and I’m really looking forward to announcing hitting the 10% milestone.

On the subject of Patreon- vaguly- I’m not fired yet, which is good. My sales still suck ass but I had a lucky reak last week that brings me up to like 20% of my required sales and we’re halfway through the month now. Not the best, but enough for me to continue collecting a paycheck for a while. I’m hoping to make it at least six months before I have to leave.

I usually prefer at least a year for my resume, but I’m not sure I’ll make it that long.

But finances aside- and that really needs to go on the list, mine are a mess right now- the Discord seems to be going pretty well.

In the sense that there’s regular usage of it and a constant stream of porn.

What more could we want?

Not sure if I mentioned tis last week, but there’s a seperate server for an RPG bot that basically serves as an idle MUD- and as I type thsi I have a feelign I did- that seems to be almost as popular as the fishing.

With all that covered I only need to post those pictures of my Bonsai- well, I think that’s it- so I’ll be back once I have those. And no, I’m not sure why I write it like this and don’t just act like it was all done at the same time. I’ll just say it’s a monologue style or something.

Aaaaaaaaand we’re back. I got home a lot later than I expected which is a shame because I was very close to having quite the early day and being abel to spend a significant amount of time writing.

It was about 1:30 when my boss- who had stopped to visit me on a job to see how I was doing- had to leave to take care of boss stuff but told me I was nearly done and that they didn’t really have anymore afternoon jobs.

Yeah, they did.

I guess I was the lucky last or something because despite all the jobs supposedly going to give our third-party contractors some work for the day- we call ’em “subs”- I managed to get stuck with a job by dispatch that took way longer than it should have. So my 2pm day turned to a 6:30 day and my writing time drastically shrunk.

But work aside, the Bonsai you’ve been waiting for;

The first two are just after watering them and the following three are after a much-needed prunning. I probably should have trimmed more from Glas- specifically near the base- but I think I’ll leave her for a bit to adjust before taking more of her leaves.

I’m really hoping Goch fills out more because she’s been putting all her effort upwards lately and getting too big for my windowsill. I was under the impression that she’d stop after the first pruning but apparently not.

Another fun thing I realized about them recently- I’ve apparently mixed them up. I was trying to figure out when the leaves would change color and learned that Goch is actually the flame tree, which sort of ruins my deliberate misnaming and what was supposed to be clashing pots.


My failures aside, I believe that covers everything for this week so I’m going to try to use the last hour I have this evening to get some progress made on the second half of 106.

Until I next have your attention,


Another week another update. Almost missed it because I weas busy chatting with Saint and Sheep. What started as me seeign if having a group of people to bounce ideas off of becamed, well, the same thing as the chat in my weekly stream, really.

Probably should have expected that.

There’s not too much t ocover in the way of new developments or progress at the moment. I’ve had some ideas recently I’m looking into but nothing solid enough to announce here. As for progress I’m about 30% done with 104, which isn’t nearly as far as I planned but I got, well, distracted. It’s a pretty common occurance and it’s a miravle it didn;’t happen sooner with how much I’ve been focusing on getting ahead with my writing.

Beign sick probably doesn’t help, nor does all the Vodka. Regardless I’m ahead of where i need to be but behind for where I’d like ot be.

Next I suppose you’re all waiting on Bonsai pictures so let’s get them up here.

Choch, getting a bit too large for her pot. I should probably trim her soon.
Glas, who has finally resumed growing. Definitely need to thin out her base.

And with the Bonsai having made their appearance, I think the only next logical step is to thank my fantastic Patreon supporters.

46 of you glorious people, thank you all very much for your support. Next week 102 goes public and I’ll have all of your names at the end of that, too. I should probably figure out the formatting, but that sounds like a “then” problem.

We’re at 6.68% of goal which doesn’t sound like a whole lot but is absolutely incredible considering I only just launched Patreon this month.

That’s about all I have for you tonight but until I next have your attention,


Honestly I’m not even completely sure what I should be including in this update aside from a recap of the new update schedule and that Bonsai picture I promised last week.

Suppose I might as well start with that, actually.

There, not just a picture of both Bonsai but my sister’s cat is in the shot too. She calls him Tarzan for some unknown reason but I’ve taken to calling him Artyom, mainly because it annoys the hell out of her and also because for the longest time she swore up and down that he wasn’t a Russian Blue.

Hes’ a Russian Blue.

You know, in case you had any doubts.

But cats aside, there’s the latest picture of my Bonsai. You may note that Glas is no longer in her small blue pot and is, for some reason, in a large white pot.

The size was so she had more room, which should be obvious, but the color is a different story. As it so happens, the month of September is when local stores decide to start hauling out the Christmas shit for some inane reason lost to the sands of corporate time. What does that mean for the garden section at my nearest- well, no, but most conveniently located- store?

It means the already poor selection of pots becomes even smaller until you’re left with two options; brown plastic or white ceramic.

Plastic just seemed undignified so for now she’s going to be in the white pot.

She also, well, looks pretty pad. Something about her branches is off and I think I may need to trim her a bit. Might even have to remove the second trunk that I was hoping to twist around. A damn shame, that.

But if it keeps her alive I really can’t complain.

Well I can, it just doesn’t’ help much.

And would you look at that? We have content for the update.

Now that the Bonsai have been taken care of, we’ll do a quick recap on future updates.

Starting with Monday’s chapter 100, updates will now be every two weeks but will be increased to 10,000 words. Chapter 101 will be posted 2019.10.14 and 102 will be on 2019.10.28.

This change is partially to satisfy those who have complained about small chapters and partly to give myself a bit more flexibility. We’ll see how it goes.

That said, I have work in the morning so we’ll end this here.

Until I next have your attention,


I’m sitting in the hotel not really sure where to start with this. The last three days have been quite busy and I’m not sure what I should even talk about.

I suppose we’ll start with the familiar and do a quick mention of our progress. Unfortunately I haven’t gotten quite as much done as I anticipated being able to- There’s not much time in the morning and I only have an hour or so after I get back from dinner- but we are sitting at a solid 35% for chapter 95.

I hope to bring that to somewhere between 50 and 65% by the end of tomorrow but we’ll see how everything goes. According to the class head of us tomorrow is the toughest day of the week, though I don’t really see how. Today, after all, was some 114 degrees {Fahrenheit} and we were outside for a good portion of it.

I am pleased to be able to say I dealt with it better than a lot of them but it definitely wasn’t something I could call enjoyable.

And seeing as we’re- sort of – on the topic of my trip we’ll just continue along that vein. It’s been three days of mixed classroom and hands-on training with two more to go. We’ll be spending a lot of time outside tomorrow, which won’t be very fun, and on Friday we have a short day because people need to travel home for the weekend.

Some are only a state away, two of us live in the state, and there are a few unfortunate souls who live nowhere close to the training facility. As someone close, however, I get to enjoy the benefits of a shorted day. Not too worried about the pay because I’m getting close to the standard 40 and am already at a higher rate than my last job. The fact that I have no overhead or food expenses really helps too.

Well, I don’t have to have food expenses. Ended up buying something myself earlier because I was feeling famished but for the most part everything except my gas is covered. The restaurants are three minutes away and the training center fifteen, so I’m not going through anywhere near as much as I used to.

All in all, it’s a pretty good arrangement for this week. Next week I’ll be on the job for four days with a more experienced employee and then I’ll be back up here for a week. We’ll see how everything goes out in the field because I have a funny feeling it won’t be anywhere as simple and straightforward as training has been.

No Bonsai pictures this week- because I’m a hundred something miles away from them right now- but I did take a picture of my bags after I had packed them so feel free to enjoy the picture of everything I need to be able to just up and leave.

Well, almost everything. Can’t do much gaming with this but I can write, draw, and waste my time on the internet with everything here. Not the greatest of packers because there are only enough clothes here for about a week.

Oh, speaking of both being able to draw and not having pictures, I actually do have pictures of a drawing I did recently. I used to draw all the time, though I didn’t really have much control over what I was drawing but recently I tried my hand at it again.

So, what did Eyazahrid draw when trying to get back into it?

An ass, naturally. The best? Not even close. Recognizable? Yeah, I’d say so. Obviously I have a budding career as a creator of adult content just waiting for me to drop my writing so I can dedicate all my time to it.

Then again, I’m sure you’d all just prefer it if I added lemons to my stories, hm? Or perhaps just lemon stories, you people would probably be into that sort of thing.

Not that I have any intention of doing one anytime soon, I have no idea how I could manage to pull one off wile adding my distinctive Eyazahrid signature to it. I’m not even sure what tat signature would be, so I suppose that’s the first thing I need to fix if I’m ever going to provide you all with poorly written adult content.

Or maybe it will turn out really good, I’ll adapt it into a book or three, and then they’ll make a movie about it. Bestselling Erotic Novelist title here I come.

But seriously, I have way too much I’m still trying to get done to spend time on something like that. Maybe when I feel more caught up. Like when Sealkeeper is over.

It’s an odd thought, isn’t it? Eventually Sealkeeper will be over and I’m going to have to start a new project from scratch. Definitely going to have to have the first month of updates done for the new story before Sealkeeper ends so I can get you re-hooked on my work before you manage to escape.

Speaking of work, I’ve been redoing the Forum on and have almost finished it. Hopefully it works better than the last one. You know, for all the use that one received. I’m also trying to get a discord set up- it’s more or less done, I just have to write up some rules for it and make some dedicated channels- which I can probably finish up next week without too much trouble.

Provided I’ve finished that chapter, of course.

No stream this week, as I mentioned in the last update, and next weeks is up in the air too. All depends on what my schedule is next week and when I actually manage to get home. The week following that I’ll be back up here for training, so there will be no stream that week either.

I think that about does it- I can’t think of anything else and need to be getting to bed for training tomorrow- so we’ll call it good here.

Until I next have your attention,


Well, this is fun. I’m sure there was a whole bunch for me to talk about- not in the ‘Yeah, I was probably supposed to cover more’ but in the ‘I was supposed to cover more’- but my plans for the day- to be fair I was just going to finish chapter 94, which has exceeded our 5k standard length, and type this up- were rather rudely interrupted by one of the rooms losing the use of its outlets.

Apparently it’s become a common thing for the breaker to trip, which no one had mentioned to me yet. So common, in fact, that they managed to completely wear the poor thing out. Unfortunately for me the nearest hardware store open at 7pm- rather, that would still be open when I was leaving at 7pm- also happened to be, well, not close.

I live well outside city limits anyway so by the time I got back I should have already been in bed and this should have been posted. Judging on the above, I’m sure you can come to the conclusion that neither of those happened. You’d be right.

Switching out the breaker- a little bit of me died inside when I upped the Amp rating without checking the draw- only took a whopping minute and a half in the dark- because the sun was down before I even reached the store- which makes the fact that so much of my time was wasted to fix it ridiculous.

Hopefully the higher amperage will keep it from tripping all the time and I didn’t just condemn the house to an inevitable blaze. Suppose I could have bought the two-pole 25 Amp and just replaced one of the others too instead of jumping up to the one-pole 30 but hindsight is 20/20.

Despite what all my eye exams always said, mine is not. Those letters? Apparently I’m really good at guessing.

I’m going to toss on the customary Bonsai pictures below before I go over the things I was supposed to go over but don’t have time to. Probably just do another update later in the week- maybe another Sunday one- or a separate post addressing the larger subject.

Anyway, Bonsai;

And, as a bonus, I suppose I’ll throw in a picture of the household’s cats. Only one of them is mine.

Left to right; Oliver, Tarzan, Teto

And now that you’re all happy from the cat picture I can disappoint you with what you missed.

Huh, maybe I should have done that in reverse? Bah, who am I kidding? You came here for the pictures anyway, you don’t care about what I’m not including.

Well, aside from a teaser. I don’t have a reserve of chapters yet- though with the way this week is going I might end up one chapter ahead, we’ll see- so I can’t really tease much. I could. I won’t.

Moving on.

Wednesday Updates seem to be working fine. Overall visitors to my site had already dropped pretty low so I can’t quite determine the effect of splitting the posts- maybe it would improve if I announced the posting of the commentaries- but that doesn’t matter much anyway.

I was planning on streaming tomorrow- I have no idea what, but something– but as it so happens tomorrow is my brother’s birthday and the family wants to get together for a celebratory dinner. Depending on what time that is I may do an earlier stream but that was already inevitable because my sleep schedule has changed.

Friday I have my final paperwork for the new job and my training starts on Monday, a few hours after I normally post the chapter. You’ll probably get the chapter much earlier than normal. Well, that or late. Depends on whether or not I can get up on time.

The training is luckily only few hours north- like three or so- so I just have to get up early and drive up unlike whatever poor bastards they’re flying in from out of state.

I’ll be spending a week up there, writing after training is finished for the day, so hopefully I can at least keep up. If I’m really lucky I may even get ahead. I’ll be back Friday evening but because of the new sleep schedule I’ll probably be in bed soon after, so don’t expect a stream that week.

Following that I have a week of on-the-job training here which may keep me from streaming again and may even interrupt my writing- we’ll see how it goes- so with any luck I can get ahead over the next week so it isn’t an issue. That or I really have to crank out the chapters on Saturday and Sunday. Not fun, but doable if necessary.

That whole process will repeat again- another week up north and another on the job- before my training is ‘done’. It’s a new field, so somewhat nervous, but everything should be fine.

Well, as long as I can manage sales. That’s going to be my least favorite part of the job, I can tell. Bonuses for making sales? I’m all for that. Making sales a necessary part of your job when you’re there to install something? I hope we have something good or I’m going to end up looking for a job again.

Which would be a pity because this job seems like something I could really enjoy.

Details aside, work boils down to ‘I’ll try to get chapters out normally but don’t expect streams over the next month or so until I figure this shit out’.

And on the matter of streams, again, we’ll probably be having them earlier. You know, if I continue doing them. Only a few people ever show up so it may be better to just make a discord where we can all chat. Well, I have that actually. I’ve just only sent an invite to one person so far because its so far down on my to-do list it won’t get done until I absolutely need it.

I have some Planetside streams I need to upload to Youtube still [Might be what I end up doing tomorrow] and I hope to have chapter 94 finished and chapter 95 started tomorrow. I’d like to work a bit on my D&D campaign but I haven’t started running yet so it’s not a priority.

Think that about does it, I’ve managed to cover most of what I wanted to. The only thing left- I believe – is about Naruto and his status as the High-Prophet in Sealkeeper: He Who Binds.

Don’t really have time for that right now, so I’m going to make that its own post hopefully tomorrow or Friday.

I need to get my ass to bed so;

Until I next have your attention,


As I mentioned in an earlier update we’d probably be moving these to Wednesday which means I had extra time to carefully prepare this update. I totally did not start typing this between Warframe missions an hour and a half after I was supposed to be in bed.


Not at all.

Yeah, I totally did. Which ids dumb but time really just slips away when playing that damn game. So does money, but that’s unrelated. Me and my horrid spending habits are not up for discussion at this time.

So far progress for the next chapter is good [50%] so we’ll have another update next Monday unless something goes horribly wrong. I should probably just spend all my time writing to get that stockpile of chapters up again but the temptations of Menoly are hard to resist.

I’m trying to remember what I was supposed to be mentioning in this update but am drawing a blank, so we’ll skip over to the Bonsai pictures while I try to figure out what I’m forgetting.

And for the sake of size comparison;

As you can see, the least favored has surpassed her sister by quite a bit. I’m still waiting for them to gain color so I can confirm which is which, though, but we won’t hit 9 months until the end of next month so color is probably still a long ways off.

That’s fine, I’ve got time.

Well, no, I don’t. I’m supposed to be doing things but I get distracted. Like today, for example. I was supposed to go to bed three and a half hours ago- yes, it’s been two hours since I started this- but I’m still running missions on Warframe and writing this.


On the bright side, I did remember what I was going to say. It’s probably not the brightest plan but earlier when I was making myself some dinner it occurred to me that it’s been a very long time since I actually read a Naruto fanfiction so I had the bright idea that I’ll skim some of the newer stories tomorrow to get a feel for the current offerings.

This should be good because it will allow me to reconnect to the Naruto fanfiction community that I’m probably out of touch with but it does run the risk of me getting hooked on reading- it takes a lot less effort for me to read a story than write a chapter- so hopefully I can still finish that chapter this week.

We should be good.

Probably. Eyazahrid

There was probably more I needed to address but I’m tired and this needs to be done. If I’ve missed something let me know.

Until I next have your attention,


An update that managed to get posted before midnight? Must be a damned miracle. Unfortunately that’s the only fortunate news I have for this update.

You’ve probably seen my tweet back on the fifteenth but if you’re still unaware I put in my letter of resignation that day and have been searching for alternate employment since.

Yeah, I quit without having another job lined up. I’m well aware how dumb that was. I would try to say I needed to make sure I was properly motivated or that I like living on the edge- which is a damn lie- but the honest answer is that I reached my limit at work and handing it in on the fifteenth ensured my employers had two weeks of notice.

My letter listed the 31st as my last day, so we have about ten days for me to finish finding a job. It’s not too bad, though. I’ve already had an interview for a job I think I would enjoy quite a bit and while there is a slight pay cut it’s based on the fact that I won’t have ten hours of overtime scheduled every week.

There’s a high likelihood of overtime in this position too but with starting pay being a bit higher and three days off most weeks I’ll be in a much better position for focusing on other things.

You know, like my writing.

Of course, I’m still waiting for them to call me back. They liked me well enough to reach out to me to set up the interview and it seemed to go well so I’m hoping the delay is only because my interview was on a Friday afternoon and that I’ll here back sometime tomorrow. If I don’t I figure I’ll just give them a call myself to see if I need to resume my search.

Just didn’t feel right to be applying to other places and trying to get interviews when I’m just waiting to hear back from them.

And if I don’t get the job? Well, worse comes to worse I can always do deliveries of some kind. I have a car and if it takes me running food, cannabis, or medical supplies around the city to pay my bills then so be it.

Actually, the medical courier job I saw seemed like it might be a good fit for me too so I’ll probably try that first. I’m not too worried about it because I have those ten days with my current employer and another paycheck and a half coming from them.

Things might get a bit tight but like I said there are plenty of jobs I can do just because I have a car so I have no problem doing them until I find something more reliable. Hell, maybe I’ll end up doing them to make ends meet only to realize I really enjoy the work. We’ll have to see.

Now, you’re probably wondering how this has anything to do with yourself and why Eyazahrid has been rambling on about the fact that he needs to generate a source of income for the imminent future.

Good question.

Because I need to pay my bills and none of my lottery tickets have done me any good securing my financial future- sounds pretty good, doesn’t it? – is a very high priority. Such a high priority, in fact, that it comes before Sealkeeper or any of my other projects.

What this means for you as readers- and audience members, if you watch my streams- is that Sealkeeper is going on a soft hiatus. Chapter 90 will be up in nine or so hours but after that it may be a few weeks until I have more chapters coming out.

Streams have a slightly higher chance of continuing on any given day simply because I use games to unwind and I can stream just about anything. Nearly did one tonight, actually, but despite having already prepped tomorrow’s chapter yesterday my other weekly tasks seem to be taking more than their due time tonight.

Probably because I wrote so much about my current employment status.


Not too much more to cover with this update, I suppose.

More than a little nervous about tomorrows chapter because the expectations have been set pretty high if the reviews are anything to go by. I’m not sure why everyone seemed to love it so much- though I really need to figure that out- but I hope whatever I did right in that one I also did in chapter 90.

For the stream I’d really like to have a main game we play most weeks- actually, I’ve been wanting that since before I ever streamed- but I have no idea what I’d want to play that frequently.

I’m thinking I might need to get into an MMO again, though I haven’t played one in quite a long time. ESO was fun enough, I suppose, even if I only ran around with the Blade of Woe murdering everyone and ransacking houses but I’m tempted to give FF14 a try to see how that is. I couldn’t back when I was playing games all the time but now that I work I could definitely try out some subscription games.

Actually played EQ2 a long time ago, I wonder how that’s going these days. Terra was an old favorite too.

All I really know is that I won’t be going to WoW ever, but that leaves us with plenty of options. If you have a suggestion- or a preference between those I’ve already mentioned- please let me know.

I need something with some longevity so I can dedicate some effort to it.

All that said, let’s wrap this up with some Bonsai.

As you can see she’s grown quite a bit since you last saw her. Her sister, on the other hand, well….

She hasn’t grown all that much. With the latest branches coming in near the top I may remove some of those lower down but we’ll see. They both hit the eight month mark in about four days and that’s sad.

Not because of their age but because I can remember their birthday- plantday?- but I can’t remember those of my siblings or parents.

Or my cat, apparently. My brother told me recently that she’s already six years old. I hadn’t exactly been keeping track, to be honest, but that sounded a bit high.

He wasn’t wrong, apparently it’s been six years.

My sense of time aside, let’s finish this up because I’ve somehow managed to work on this for the last two hours. Don’t ask, I have no idea.

I don’t have a teaser for you this week- again- but I did recently show both a clean Command Center and my setup being, you know, less than set up. With that in mind, let’s get some more pictures up in this post. Why? Because I took ’em so I might as well use ’em.

Besides, I’m sure you’re all terribly curious.

Okay, maybe not. I’m going to show you anyway.

The command center is no more, my writing/work desk having been removed from my room, leaving everything pretty empty. It’s also a damn furnace in there so I haven’t spent much time after I got everything set up.

Learning that none of my spare keyboards apparently work may have had some influence on that decision. I have a new one coming in Tuesday to remedy that. We’ll be back to gaming soon enough.

Well, I could just use my gaming keyboard with the gaming pc but I’m a lazy bastard and already have it set up on the writing desk. Moving it between the two for the next few days- as I’ll be doing with my chair- is just too troublesome.

Here’s a picture showing where the rest of the command center used to be, now replaced only by the same emptiness in my heart that I harness to create my cliffhangers.

I’ve spared you the close-up of the computer were you’d be granted the image of a horrendous tangle of wires. Ended up with a handful of wires to….something…after I had set it up again but I guess they weren’t that important if I can’t figure out why I had them in the first place.

My writing desk- actually, you may note that this desk used to be the one the gaming setup was on a few updates ago- has been moved out into the loft where there isn’t a fan but it also isn’t the fiery pits of hell, which is nice. The separation also helps keep me from being too distracted.

It’s not entirely effective, but I did sit down yesterday and manage to get a thousand words down which is a lot better than progress had been over the last week. A good sign, perhaps?

Actually pretty fond of this setup, I’ve been thinking about doing it for months. I always pictured it with the smaller desk but this is probably better. What you see on the screen is actually what I’m typing right now, which means I really need to hurry up and finish this. Seriously, I had so much time before midnight that I actually mentioned it in the first damn sentence- and no, I’m not changing that or the date of the update title- but by the time this is up it’s going to be quarter to one.

Ah, fuck it. What’s the harm in one more?

There you are, my current setup. I’m sure you were all dying to know after seeing the picture of my pc on the floor Friday.

Now I need to end this damn thing so I can finish the prep for chapter 90. Remember when i said it was done? Well, not quite. Proofread the chapter- also known as eliminating all the red squiggles in the document- but I still need to upload it to and ensure the formatting is correct. Shouldn’t take too long.

I hope.

Either way, this has gone on much longer than I expected and I need to get to work and then get to bed so I can get to work that pays the bills in the morning.

Until I next have your attention,


I’m going to try keeping this brief because chapter prep and the Commentary for chapter 87 took longer than expected.

That Commentary is up, by the way. You know, in case you wanted to check it out.

So, chapter progress has improved. I had been a bit stuck with chapter 89 but chapter 90 went much faster. We;re still not up to five spares but at least we’re not falling further behind.

The vacation was good, we streamed a lot and my casino trip only ran me some $400. More than I really wanted to be spending, but i suppose it was better than sitting at home for my entire vacation.

Work still sucks, the Bonsai are doing well [pictures below], and most of the older stream have been moved to Youtube so we don’t lose them. If you’ve missed them, feel free to head on over.

And speaking of streaming, I have been debating over switching from Twitch to just Youtube for the streams. It would make saving videos easier but I’m not sure what you’d all prefer.

Let me know- PM, email, or comments are fine- and if there’s a time that’s better fro you to catch a stream live please tell me that too. [UTC, please. It helps avoid confusion.]

I don’t think there’s much else going on that needs to be mentioned.

Oh, no, there are two more things.

Working on a D&D campaign- again- which I’m thinking about posting here upon completion. If that’s something you’d be interested in let me know.

We may also be skipping the stream on Thursday because my D&D group- though we’re currently trying out Overlight- may be meeting later in the day due to some schedule conflicts. I’ll try to keep you all updated on that front.

With all that covered, I think this about does it. If I’ve forgotten anything feel free to yell at me. I’ll either write down a note for next week or- depending on how much I forgot to mention- I may even have another update in the coming week. We’ll see.

Until I next have your attention,


So, as is becoming an alarming trend lately, I have not managed to catch up on my writing. We’re still ahead- thank the gods- but our five-chapter lead has been gone for some time now. In fact, I can’t even provide a teaser because the next chapter to tease isn’t done yet.

Worse, because I’m not even managing to keep up with Sealkeeper I can’t work on any of my other projects such as the Tatsuki “Oneshot” or The Warlock of Winterhold. Then again, I’m not even sure if Warlock will ever come into being because my notes are limited and my saves seem to have been messed up.

Unless I manage to recover them I’m better off just starting a new game, in which case I’ll probably stream it. That could be interesting, I suppose, letting you all see- and perhaps influence- what we do and then getting to read the story I spin from it.

I’ll have to keep that in mind.

I’ve mentioned this in a recent tweet, but I am going on vacation soon. I’ll be off for a week and only three days have been set aside to relax at a nearby casino, so the other four days will hopefully allow me to get some actual work done. Unlikely, but my fingers are crossed.

No, wait, nevermind that. If I’m going to have a stroke of good fortune let it be at the casino, please. Covcerign my stay would be awesome, paying of my car would be fantastic, and anythign beyond thet is, well, pretty damn unlikely.

Probably have better chances with the Lottery tickets I bought earlier.

My gambling aside- can anyone say ‘retire into obscurity and write without any worries’?- I do want to mention a few of the things I need to get done here. Mostly so I feel more obligated to get them done because you’re all expecting them.

Remember that forum I set up here on the site? [There should be a link to it somewhere above you] Yeah, it’s still empty. I’ve been meaning to go through my old ideas and post them there but haven’t gotten around to it.

I want to have at least three of them polished up and posted there before the end of my vacation.

We need to regain our lead, which means five chapters ahead and I need to post a chapter during my vacation- it will be from my hotel room or possibly from my phone as I lounge by the pool if I’ve already added it to the Doc manager of so I have to get chapter 92 done by the timer I’m back- Wednesday- and I’ll have the rest of the week to finish up chapter 93.

other than those, the only other thing on my to-do list that may interest any of you would be that I’m going to post my last couple streams on Youtube. It’s really difficult and time-consuming. I totally don’t just name it, throw on some tags, and give it a basic description before walking away to do something else while it uploads for the next forty minutes.

Oh, wait, I do. Really no excuse for not having those up yet- really, I could be doing them now instead of talking about them- but I just haven’t gotten around to it. Mydia has been rather needy lately and my will is weak.

Of course, getting just those three tasks done- I make it sound simple, but that’s a good four chapters and my rate peaked at about 2.5 chapters a week – is going to be made more difficult by the next bit of news I have;

I finally got VR.

I’ve been debating getting a VR system for a while now and was mostly hesitating on the price- and because I know it will eat up my limited free time like little else- but I did finally give in. Menoly is going to immensely distracting over the week.

On one hand, that’s something that may impede my progress. On the other, it may serve as a good motivator to get the chapters done.

And speaking of chapters, 89 onward is going to bring a very rapid advance- and possibly conclusion- to the Rebellion Arc. I’m not entirely sure how that’s going to effect the rest of the story’s pacing- or plot- but I already see this part in my head so it’s going on paper.

Er, in a manner of speaking.

That’s about all I have for this week and I still need to write up that commentary- not much really stood out that I can recall, though I do have a pretty pad memory- aside from Cam’s series of reviews. I think those were more notable because she’s been absent lately and suddenly I have five reviews from her. I’ll have to pull up the other reviews for the chapter to see if there’s anything I actually need to address.

There probably is, I just hope I can get it done quickly. I have more stuff to do and need to be in bed soon for work tomorrow. I’d really appreciate it if the gods would like to favor me with a lottery win or a real good haul from my upcoming casino trip so that’s not as much of an issue.

You may consider invoking your gods to that effect, too, if you’d like to provide me with more time to write for you. Or, you know, click on an add before you go. I’ll take what I can get.

We’ll finish this up with some pictures of happy little trees- well, one of them is being as bit droopy lately- and I’ll see you all in eight hours or so with the next chapter. Ah, damn, I need a name for it still. Might save that for tomorrow right before I post.

Nothing like putting things off until the very last minute.

Here are those trees.
