I go by fourthage. The URL has a dash because someone beat me to the unhyphenated version.

I'm a bit of a magpie. I love the natural world (satisfies both the "ooh shiny!" and "color!" impulses). I also like being ridiculously fannish about made-up people and worlds. It's mostly Mass Effect right now, but I'm also into Dragon Age, Tolkien, Miyazaki movies, and other miscellaneous Japanese comics and games.

My Wrex and Bakara dragons had their first clutch.  I was hoping for four eggs because, you know, krogan fertility, but I’ll take the two I got.  Usual terms, both unnamed despite being sorely tempted to name one Mordin.

Male - Orange/Maroon/Tangerine

Female - Gold/Maroon/Slate

I won’t do this every time, because half the fun is not knowing when they’ll show up, but I figured it’d be good to get confirmation for the first set of postcards, so I know the addresses got ported over right.  It usually takes a couple of days for the postcards to be printed and mailed out, so they should start showing up at the end of the week.


guys read the fine print its hilarious

Okay, I have confirmed or responded to everyone who’s sent me their address so far.  If you didn’t get a response, please re-send or just email my gmail account (fourthage, no hyphen).  And this is not a limited window, so feel free to be added to the list at any time.

(original post)

I’ve been falling down on practicing my photography and I know that having a regular reason to do so will get me into gear.  So.  Would anyone be interested in getting postcards?  I have a nice app that both makes and mails postcards from pictures I take.  You’d get at least one a month and will obviously have to be okay with providing me your address.  If that sounds interesting, just drop me your address either in an ask (I will confirm so you know tumblr didn’t eat it), or email it to me at my fourthage gmail account.

This is really quite adorable, and I kind of love that they both have their own separate hobbies (Garrus and watercolors though—I kinda love it).

I like it!

Aw. They have so thoroughly earned this.

You guys are ridiculous  (I mean that in the nicest possible way.)  That wasn’t even the writing equivalent of a complete thought.  Though it is very nice encouragement to keep working on the things I can finish.

That’s the scale. It’s been a long journey and no one is coming out without scars.

I was going through my WIP folder and found this short snippet that I lost steam on and am pretty sure I’ll never finish.  Figured I’d throw it up on tumblr for the heck of it.

Finally getting around to answering these.

probablylostrightnow's questions:

1. How did you choose your Tumblr URL?

Tolkien reference.  I’ve gone by fourthage for years.  I still check the URL on a regular basis in hopes of getting the version without the hyphen.  

2. Is there a book, movie, or game that you love, but no one else seems to know about? If so, what is it?

I don’t think so?  Maybe LuscasArt’s LOOM?  I loved the idea of casting spells through music.
