Well. Hello again.

You ever have one of those dreams where you realize you were supposed to be in school, but you were skipping out for so long you don't even remember the room number, much less what homework was due? Gods help you to recall the locker combo.

Yeah. Pretty much that.

I couldn't figure out the password here.

So. Some…years…ago now, Sae and I kinda put our dA here on hold, since we weren't living together anymore. I thought this was a temporary situation, and that after we got our monies more stabilized, we'd be aiming to move back in together and start cranking out fun little fanartworks and cosplays and just being generally creative all over the place. However, it seems this plan is unlikely to come to pass. In short time, Saeru shall be joining up with the Air Force, to put all that electrical engineering to use building drone jets and whathaveyou. Afterward a few years of awesomely defending our world from the inevitable invading alien robots who have come to steal all of our energy, it'll be a quick jaunt back for more university to delve into the wonders of neuroscience. And then I guess making cyborgs for world domination or something is on the horizon after that.

The reason I came back to kick out all these dA crickets with announcement of Sae's lofty prospects is to give folks who happen to still be around the heads-up: there will be no future custom Organization coats (nor wigs) from Sae. Ever.

After the auction tomorrow, that is. One last coat, and then the era is over.

I am following up on some leads for commissioners who may be able to take up the torch and fill in, but right now, there is no one confirmed with the dedicated space, time and training. I do not know when Organization cosplays will be available to the public again, but I will be facilitating as best I can to see the niche filled. Additionally, I will be compiling all of the tutorials, supply research, patterns and videos we've posted around all over into a coherent hub for posterity.

…Also: I have a bunch of Lost Art from our times of collaborations. Stuff that never got scanned. Stuff I never finished coloring. Stuff that was deemed too…uh, too silly. So I'm going to work this year to enshrine all that extra b-side and bonus materials here where it belonged tin the first place, since this account is specifically for our collabs. Meanwhile, anything that I'm working on solo these days will be posted on my original dA account, which is now sniperdusk.deviantart.com/

So, this isn't exactly goodbye. You'll still see me sweeping up in here from time to time. But just in case no further developments ever develop, please consider this closure of a sort.

The year ends...

:bulletblack: Saeru has promised me we're going to branch out into some variety of subject matter in order to continue to toil studiously to improve our skills. If everyone is down with that, we promise to continue to post KH nonsense as well.

:bulletblack: OrgXIII coat commissions are officially open = www.orgxiii.org/commish_organi…
(If you have a specific convention deadline, please reserve a slot as soon as you can before the busy summer season starts. And if you -don't- have a specific deadline, don't worry - no need to start selling plasma or other bodily fluids. We'll be here when you need us.)

:bulletblack: Besides working on requests, we both have some personal cosplay plans coming up which include Xig and Xal (finally!) plus a thing or two even more epic. Stayed tuned.

:heart: Also, please join us in celebrating :iconelemental-sight:'s awesome photography = news.deviantart.com/article/66…





...By the way, Sae's actually coming home today, pending further ice storms, hurricane winds and suicidal deer. I thought I was getting along fairly okay alone...



:iconsaeru: saeru says =

So, uh, yeah. There actually were ice storms, hurricane winds, white outs, and then I locked my keys in the car.  No suicidal deer, though.  But I still had to turn back.

It seems Canada is determined to keep me.  But I have been doing drawings while I'm up here, so look forward to a new KH comic when I return and U-E colors it.

And then, after that, I have to do some major fast costuming to get Leon and Xaldin done in time for Ohayocon at the end of January. x-x  Maybe since I'm stuck here I'll get started...

By the way, *someone* is in Canada. Again! But without me. So maybe I'll post some art on my own...? Or respond to comments myself. Yeah...that'll teach Sae....

P.S. Yes, I did change my icon. Sorry to confuse. (I just decided to have consistency on all places I post to.)

A better, stronger, tastier journal forthcoming from Sae. In the meantime, please enjoy this journal-loaf from me...

:iconsniperdusk: sniperdusk says =
Well the whole update thing didn't work out so well. (I was almost the kiriban myself. Whoops.) >XD
Anyway nothing traumatic happened other than both of us being burnt out from all the cons this year (they are finally over...whew) and then being out of the country for a long time....plus the fact that Saeru doesn't really have a place to live right now and I only kinda do. Also, we're also finishing up a ton of commissions, and we're trying to get everyone their stuff before we accept anything new.

If we owe anyone a response on anything, thank you for your patience, and we'll be returning to dA fully. (The message box is frighteningly full right now. O_o ) If there is anything urgent, feel free to e-mail one or both of us - you won't be a pest, promise.


But, the main thing to note is that we've started to use etsy to sell some of our items previously only seen at conventions. For a very long while, I was trying to develop a coherant shopping cart via our actual website (other than for our giant zippers) but I couldn't allow for international shipping easily and the weight-to-value ratios were all over so I'm still working on inventing a new formula. In the meantime, if you'd like to buy stuff now, go here = :star: orgXIII.etsy.com :star:

Many apologies for our continued disappearance. We've been preparing for the busy summer convention season.  There will be benefits to this, however, such as a complete slew of art headed your way as soon as we get a break (since I've been drawing like mad and U-E has been coloring like mad, too.)

If you are going to Anime Expo (Los Angeles, July 3rd-6th) come by and see us in Artist Alley.  We'll be the 'Kingdom Arts' booth (rogueymu is to blame for the awesome name.) Mention that you saw us on DeviantArt and we'll give you a free pin with any purchase. ^.^

Oh ho ho.  

Ho ho ho ho ho ha ha ha haaaaaa...

Wow.

So like, maybe I should be taking care of these thousands of messages that have piled up in my absence.   Really rather makes me feel terrible, since I appreciate everyone's comments and favorites so very much.  

It really is quite a bother that real life interferes with chumming on the internets.  

I think to myself: Saeru, you really ought to get to responding to those comments.  Especially the ones that have been sitting around since March of last year.  
And then I go: Yes, Saeru, you are right, but really we need to take care of this exploding toilet, or pay off this credit card bill, or go off to work, or finish this commission, etc, etc.

I sadly see people leave the internet time and time again because of the pressures of real life...
but to this I say REBEL.  REBEEEELLLLL.  'Real life' sucks enough color out of people as it is.  If one has to get offline for something, it should be for something AWESOME like a trip to Sweden, or a visit to the museum, or to write a story or draw a picture...something creative or intellectual or just plain interesting and fun. ^.^  

Anyone else out there got real life issues right now?  Annoying stuff like Final Exams or stupid jobs?  Man, it is soul-draining just to think about that stuff.  I know it's necessary, but...
ugh.
Tell me what you'd RATHER be doing right now, yes?  

On another note, I suddenly feel old-school.  I did a search for Kingdom Hearts and realized that there were tons of new artists and trends and pairings and that I really didn't recognize a thing. o.o  Could someone update me on what is ' popular ' these days?  I'm really curious, as I seem to have missed the boat(or 'ship' as it were).

Well, here I go.  *heads off to respond to comments*
Thank you to everyone who visited us in Boston!

This is sniperdusk manning the journal entry  today. In a few days, saeru and I will be living in separate locations for at least three months, so I'm going to try to get as many finished back-logged items posted by the weekend as I can. After that,  I'm going to be working on my own  non-KH fanarts as well as the stack of doodles Saeru has piled up for me to color, while Saeru and rogueymu will be producing cool new 3D items for our artist alley tables (and playing with the new kitten.)

Here is our current upcoming confirmed convention list:
- Anime Boston
- Anime Central
- Anime Expo
- Youmacon
(+ 3-5 other "maybes")

For those of you who haven't heard, Ebay has been going through some changes lately.

My own personal stance is a general disapproval of these changes, as many of my friends who sell on Ebay are being hurt by them.  U-E and I were surprised when they were instituted, and even more surprised that they were labeled as 'Fee Reductions' when they mostly end up hurting sellers in the long run.  We made a mutual decision to not be selling things on Ebay until some beneficial changes have been made.

If you'd like a full rundown on what we disapprove of, most of it can be found in this livejournal, here:
starherd.livejournal.com/30630…

I'm not going to take a stance that everything this journal says is correct and absolute, but I do support the idea of a boycott in the hopes that consumer voices can be heard and some positive changes enacted.  

If you'd like to help support, all you've got to do is simple:
Don't buy or sell anything on ebay from Feb 18th through Feb 25th.
If you want to be even more helpful, let your family and friends know, too.

Even if you don't agree and just want to do something nice for us or our friends by joining in the boycott, I'd appreciate it. ^.^
And if you don't agree and keep on using Ebay, I don't hate you for it.  *chuckles*  This is just my own opinion, and my own take on things, so I'm doing what I can to spread the word.

If you'd like some alternative e-bay auction websites, Ebid and Wagglepop have got some great deals for buyers and sellers right now. ^.^
Ebid: www.ebid.net/
Wagglepop: www.wagglepop.com/bin/Auction

Anyhow, thanks for reading!  I'll give an update on whats actually been happening with us, soon, and there are more delicious arts on the way. ^.^

This will be a quick journal entry, and I'll post more soon. ^.^  

We just got back from Ohayocon, and it was -great.-  We met a large number of awesome artists, made good money, and had some impressive photoshoots in costume.  This has inspired us to aim for one convention a month in order to help us support our habit (of drawing and cosplaying), so if you have any recommendations we would -really- appreciate it. ^.^

Also, we're finally in our new house, and just got internet back, so this is the first time in a few weeks that we've been able to get online.  We'll be a little slow responding to comments for a while, but then hopefully we'll get caught up!  New pictures are on the horizon, and its good to be in a place of our own. ^.^

We are also considering (dum dum dum) doing art commissions, but  I'll wait till we get some of the newer, better art up before I go into too many details.  

Finally, thanks to everyone for visiting us, and keep spreading the Kingdom Hearts love!

Got back from Youmacon, and it was a blast. ^.^  We'll be at Ohayocon, so I hope to see some of you there!

I've been wanting to change this journal for a while, and I thought of the most brilliant subject to bring up.

I would suppose, for the most part, that if you are reading this now, you must have some love or knowledge of Kingdom Hearts, seeing how that is pretty much the only thing we post (although if you're here for some other reason, please do let me know, as I'm already dying from curiosity.)  

To 'celebrate,' so to speak, the posting of Chapter 3 of Puppet, I did some math and came up with something interesting.

The number 78, it turns out, is the atomic number of Platinum. Pretty good element, that, don't you think?  It's nice and shiny and possesses that very nice sheen somewhere between silver and gold.  
Seventy-Eight is also the number of cards in a full Tarot deck of both Major and Minor Arcana.  Also quite an interesting fact.

But the most interesting fact, for us, the KH-loving crowd, is that 78, besides being two more than the number of trombones within the Big Parade, is the number of possible combinations of relationships within Organization 13.  

Which means that there's a Tarot card for each individual pairing.

And, I'd be willing to bet, also a few people that ship said pairing, even if you're pulling something strange like Xaldin and Larxene.

So what does this mean for you, who-so-ever you might be, that is reading this here journal?

I'd like three things from you, thats what!  
Here they are:

1. Tell me about YOUR favorite pairing, and why you like it so much.
2. Think, out of ALL 78 combinations, which is the WEIRDEST that you think could actually exist, and how.
3. Take out a 20-sided dice, an online randomizer, a deck of cards, or some-other such random-type appliance with 13-sets (or some division thereof) and randomly pick/roll two numbers that would correspond to two Organization members.  Then, write about if you believe that pair could happen, how it'd happen, if you'd like it / not like it, etc.

This, I am looking forward to.


Beyond this, there are a few things I would like to 'pimp,' so to speak.  I guess I really have Deviant-art to thank, for helping to introduce me to such peoples, and thanks to them for leaving comments so I could find their wondrous works.  Thanks to everyone, for that matter....I've really made some great friends throughout this lovely year.

Arts:
:iconmilkdeer: - If you like Kingdom Hearts art, and especially if you like the first few Organization members, go here.  She draws better than me, and there's content and humor as well.  

Stories:
:iconleonhart-less: - Fanfiction www.fanfiction.net/u/85499/leo… , for stories of Leon and Cloud. I wish I had seen this earlier, myself, as her writing really is excellent.  I especially recommend "Carthexis Neurasthenia," which is a refreshing dip into how writing really can be 'art.'

I've decided to start offering plushie commissions for Organization plush dolls, in an attempt to support myself until the end of the summer when we'll be moving.

The plushes tend to be approximately 21" high, and have up to 7 floppy joints for a variety of positions. As our aim is to make our plush dolls as soft and cuddly as possible, they are made out of black anti-pill fleece, cream alpine fleece, and either fur or human/synthetic wig hair depending on what is appropriate to the character. For maximum comfort and pleasant warmth, we use a down-like hypo-allergenic cluster fiber stuffing.  If you have any particular material requests, just let me know and I'll see what I can do.

Edit
If you're interested in a doll, just send me(8-13) a PM that includes the information listed below.  I'll keep a waiting list of anyone who has sent me a PM, and I will get started based off of who pays first.  

1. Which Organization Member you would like.
This can be any of the 13, or your own(provided you can send a reference picture ^.^ ).
2. Your zip code and/or country
So that I can calculate shipping to you.
3. Your e-mail address
Which I will use to send you an invoice. ^.^
4. Method of payment
I accept Paypal, Google, Check, or Money order.  I won't start work until after I receive payment, however (thus checks and money orders have a longer waiting period).
5. Which Options you would like
The price spread is as follows:
60$usd - Basic plush
+10$ - Voice box
+5$ - Zipper
+5$ - Chains
+5$ - Magnetized hands
+40$ - Plush-sized weapon

These can take up to a week to complete, but after you've paid feel free to poke me if you want a progress picture.

I can also make completely custom plushies, in my strange voodoo-doll style. ^.^  If there is a non-Organization character of any sort that you would like, PM me for a price quote.  These usually start at ~100$, since they're much more detailed, and often drawn up from scratch.
Hopefully I'll have an example of one soon.  ^.^  *gets back to work*

As for ART!  I've actually been drawing again.  I've got a lovely little set of things coming to you, hopefully in the next few days.  So long as I can get money doing commissions and a little off of plushies, I'll have time to make pictures. ^.^  Been working both on art I owe and some of our own stuff.  All KH, of course.  We <3 Kingdom Hearts!  

So keep an eye out! Well, if you're Xigbar. Otherwise keep two eyes in. ^.^

For those waiting on art, the time is soon.  >.>
You'll have to forgive us, for we're a bit out of practice. ^.^;  
And we're looking for a new place to live.  >.>  And about 500 other crazy tasks.
But we'll never stop drawing because...its...what we do. ^.^

This is just a quicky from :iconsaeru: .

We're not dead, we've just been extremely busy dealing with our incoming zippers, paperwork, subsequent taxes, Acen registration, Artist Alley registration, Masquerade Drama, and, most looming and imperative of all, the costumes.  Altogether it is being extremely difficult, and highly time-consuming.

But!
I have a date for our resurection.  We shall return after Mother's Day(all hail Jenova, etc), May 13th, and continue life as it once was, with plenty of drawings and comics and pictures and plushies to show you!

So forgive us, please, as we've been unresponsive to comments(I feel terrible, since I made the commitment to always try and respond), and belated in the arts that we owe people.  
(I believe the tally is at three...one picture for DrSharkykins, one for LouisDelacroix, and one for xPlutoniiumxStephx ...send me a Note if I'm missing you?)  I'll finish these up when we get back. ^.^

Also, the first plushie auctions will be coming soon!

See you all after Mother's Day!
