Missing PiecesLong after the rest of the team had retired for the night, Dr. Schrader stayed up at the dig site. His work was illuminated only by the moon and one small lantern, but even so he just couldn't stop himself. Maybe it would be more sensible to carry on tomorrow, but when on the edge of an archaeological break-through there was no way that anyone could expect him to sleep.Missing Pieces by SamCyberCat
He dusted some dirt from the surface of a pottery fragment, then took a moment to examine the pattern on it. These lines were what he was coming to recognise as being typical of Azran work.
“You certainly are a puzzle, aren't you?” he hummed to the fragment.
“Did someone say something about puzzles?”
Schrader jumped with a start and hastily turned around to see who had crept up on him. He grabbed hold of the lantern and shone it ahead, but quickly found that his worries were for nought, as the light settled on the grinning face of Elizabeth Riddleton. She wasn't connected to the dig team, but she
Squawking at Chimneys - Part TwoCrow's first few days at the Weathered Duke's Hotel saw him pick up the ropes with relative ease. After Umid had shown him around and told him what was expected of him, the rest seemed to just slide into place. Although Crow hoped that his grand holiday to London wouldn't be taken up entirely by cleaning rooms and ironing bedsheets, he was glad to have somewhere to stay with no string attached.Squawking at Chimneys - Part Two by SamCyberCat
Perhaps soon they'd trust him enough to let him go wandering around the city, although the suspicious glares he kept receiving from Becky suggested this would not be the case. No amount of Crow's charm could get through to Becky after he'd tried to pickpocket her on his first day here.
Outside of Becky though, both Umid and Margaret seemed to be passively fond of Crow, while Max regarded him with a vaguely mystified awe. It took Crow a while to get use to Max himself, given that the boy seemed to talk almost entirely as if he was a game-show host. Apparently Margaret thought he was going through
24th March 2015: I just wanted to make a new journal to get the old one off my page, but I'm not sure I actually have anything to say, haha.
Sorry that updates around here have been pretty slow. This is in no small part due to working a lot of hours and my priorities being in other places. I've also admittedly been doing more writing than drawing at the moment, but I hope that sometime in the future I'll be able to become faster at doing both.
Hope you're all doing well and take care!

I am happy for my work to be featured in most groups that ask. However I do NOT want my work to be featured in anti groups (i.e. groups against a certain character, series or pairing) or groups that have anti-homosexuality rules (or other rules in favour of prejudice). Thank you for understanding.
Please ask before taking any of my work to post on other websites. This includes for use on Tumblr. I have my own account there and would prefer to post my work myself. If there's anything here that you particularly want me to post on Tumblr then let me know and I will, since most of my older stuff isn't posted there.
Also, I work away from home without Internet access from Friday-Monday almost every week. So I probably won't be around to answer messages during that time.
Professor Layton Spoilers: My dA account will contain spoilers for all of the Professor Layton games. These may be posted openly anywhere on my submissions, journals or in conversations in the comments section. So please tread with caution if you're avoiding spoilers for any of the games.
Lastly, I hate to have to say this, but please don't message me asking me to contact other people on your behalf (e.g. "This person hasn't been replying to my notes, can you ask them why?"). It's uncomfortable for me to deal with messages like this and most of the time I get sent these messages it's about something that isn't anything to do with me. Please respect that my time online is limited and I'm not your messenger-pigeon.
