Milestones, Turning Points, and Activity Updates – November 2019

After two months of minimal posting frequency, I have returned with a more organized month of posting! I’m pretty happy that I managed to post all that I wanted to post despite being off on the times they should’ve been posted on. I’m also thinking about changing the posting schedule from Saturday and Sunday to Friday and Saturday. Sundays are really important days to me, and the later parts of Fridays are when we actually feel like cutting loose after stuff like school and day jobs. Oh, and I’m still job hunting, by the way. I think I may be going somewhere really better, though…

Anyway, three pairs of fun stuff were posted this month! I’ll sort them by type rather than by time here:

As for what’s next, December’s gonna be a challenge to plan with all the Advent and Christmas stuff. And why not make a sched in the spirit of those seasons? I’m even planning to post one particular fanfic on Christmas Eve if there’s a chance! Also, there’s my birthday, a cousin’s wedding (also on my birthday for some reason, hahaha), and my relationship anniversary with Pat! I’d be lying if I said that dealing with all that would be no sweat, but they still excite me, yo! I better trust in the Ultimate Challenger and Guide a lot more, then!

And hey, as usual, honest constructive feedback is highly encouraged and will be highly appreciated!

Ants and Sugar

Ants and Sugar

a prompted short story by The Overlord Bear

Prompt (from r/WritingPrompts): “Your wife is literally perfect. Several years after the marriage you feel a bit bored and start to look for a little mildly thrilling affair. Turns out your wife is fallen angel/ascended demon who really loves you and is just keeping all her horrific traits sealed inside.”

Extra: “Bonus points if you make the woman he’s having an affair with an alternate persona his wife created to give him this affair, and then gently guide him back.”

Tobby’s Recommendation Yell: Mekakucity Days, Records, and Reload


Tobby’s Recommendation Yell: Mekakucity Days, Records, and Reload

edited by Pat/Burrito of Feels

The defining work of Jin, a.k.a. Shizen no Teki-P, is a big multimedia mess with beautiful Vocaloid music at its very core. Its light novels and manga are a stack of supplementary flashbacks pretending to be stories, while its anime is also a big and non-sexual piece of fanservice exclusive for the established follower, but the Vocaloid music is where the actual stories are, even making all those adaptations and supplements bearable for the imagination.

Raising and Razing

Raising and Razing

a prompted short story by The Overlord Bear

Prompt (from r/WritingPrompts): “you are a demon who was sent to earth as a final chance to better yourself, but when you get there, there is nothing you can do to help anyone. Over time you start to watch the world fall into decay, but as you are immortal, you cannot die with it. You are not accepted back into hell.”

Tobby tried to sing “Courage”

Listening to nostraightanswer’s SYNTECH 0 during my first job did a lot to me, yo. This one song didn’t stick to me that quickly, but when it did, it stuck hard. nostraightCircus is one freaking awesome musical combo, alright. Also, much like the song, Lupin’s voice is freaking beautiful~

As for producing this cover, Pat (It’s her birthday today, so y’all better greet her a Happy Birthday!) told me at first check that the mix was pretty good already, which I consider an achievement compared to previous times. I thought I’d never be able to sing this, too, but then I did a key change, and then I felt like going on fire with this. Though I’m kinda worried about whether I made my voices ring well enough, and I’m pretty sure that Pat and I still have a lot more to learn, so yeah, honest constructive feedback is still very very welcome~

Now, here’s the mp3. Also, I’m freaking happy about being on schedule yet again with my posts.

And again, I wish you all more strength and worthwhile times!

Lockpicked Love

Lockpicked Love

a Nisekoi fanfiction by The Overlord Bear

Summary: When you grow up, you find some things you did as a kid really stupid. But not everyone grows up at the same rate. Kosaki Onodera can attest to that. She’s also pretty sure that being normal doesn’t mean being some gangster. And she still wonders if the thug life really even chooses people…
