To Make You Into Something Beautiful

Sometimes the most beautiful stories are also the most melancholy. This piece was a little too short to publish traditionally, but I felt it was too powerful to leave locked away in my folder of unused poems. I hope you all get something out of it.

Dollhouse Cafe Table

Wow, this is a monochrome photo.

This is my second attempt at a dollhouse table, made at 1:12 scale. I like to think I’ve made a lot of progress since my first attempt, especially when considering the legs. While it might not be much to look at on a screen, I had to shape each of those legs by hand with a pocket knife! That takes a lot of work for someone who isn’t used to such tools.

My plans now are to make a proper scene, rather than just upload pieces of furniture. So that means next I’ll need a couple chairs, some decorations, and a backdrop. I’m confident I can make all of those, though.

It’s also worth noting that I’m still very new to this craft, so any advice would be greatly appreciated :)

School-Age Psychopomp

I recently read a very moving poem by PeriodicFable. I felt a strong connection to the poem and needed to express that connection in some verse of my own.

From a technical standpoint, I like to think of this poem as a semi-sonnet. The line structure is the same as in a Shakespearean sonnet, but I opted to release it from the usual rhyme scheme. I did try rhyming but felt the result interfered with the mood.

If you would like to read the poem this is a response to (and you should), you can find it here: A little less conversation

Chronicles of a Dwarf Fortress

I’ve started playing this game called Dwarf Fortress lately. It’s the most ponderous, difficult to understand game I’ve ever seen and it’s beautiful. The relationships and stories that emerge through the silly dwarves going about their daily lives are both hilarious and tragic. This is the first of three short stories I will be writing to chronicle my first attempt at a fortress, the imposing Barrowkeep.

Also, I don’t actually know what category to put this in. It’s an original story based on some randomly generated dwarves and the antics they got up to, but it’s also based on a game I didn’t make. Is this fan-fiction? I don’t know!

A First Try at Doll Furniture

Lately, I’ve become quite interested in dollhouses and other miniature scenes. This is my first-ever attempt at making furniture at the 1:12 scale (or any scale, for that matter). I think it came out pretty well for a first try, although I definitely have a lot of improving to do. Speaking of improving, please forgive the poor photo quality. I’m still working on proper photographic techniques at such a small scale.

Do any of you have similar hobbies or perhaps some advice you could give a first-timer? I’d love to hear from you :D
