Guild Wars 2 – Fanfiction

Just after setting my goals, I had an amazing offer. One of my goals was to write fanfiction again. If you’ve been here before you’ll probably have seen some Guild Wars 2 fanfics floating around (you can find them here). A few of my Guild Wars 2 friends decided to do an amazing collaboration between writers and artists for charity, a Wintersday zine.

Zorav is the mastermind behind this project, but she isn’t doing it alone. She’s had the help of wonderful people who coordinated and edited the fanfics to the masterpieces that they are now. She launched the crowfunding campaign to raise funds for the zines and anything beyond the production costs would go to charity. In the two charity events she moderated, $42,000 went to charity.

Taking part in such a zine has been an experience. There were 71 artists and writers who contributed. Each writer collaborated with an artist to tell their story. Amazing pieces were submitted, in both art and writing.

It felt weird to hold a book with my work in it. It isn’t the first time I’ve had my work in print, but this was different. This wasn’t a newspaper, this was something I was passionate about, with amazing art by Eames, in full colour, printed on gorgeous paper.  It was definitely something I’m proud of and I showed it off to anyone who wanted to see it (mostly family and friends who don’t know anything about Guild Wars 2).

The applications for the Wintersday Zine have been closed already, but the crowdfunding has yet to start. So if you’re interested in buying a zine filled with great art and stories, keep your eye out this fall.

101 Goals, 1001 Days: To Read List 2018

Every year I set my Goodreads Reading Challenge. I’ve kept it on 30 for the past years and this year I’ll raise it. I have more time and I do want to read (and review) more books. Let’s go for 40. It’s only ten books more and I’ve finished a few books in less than two days, so it’s definitely doable. It depends on how well the books are written though.

There are still a few books on my to-read list from last year. We moved halfway through the year and I still haven’t unpacked all of my books. Some of those are still in boxes and I have no idea in which box they are. I know there are new books in series I read last year or which I’ll read this year. If I get my hands on those, I’ll definitely add them to my to-read list.

 

Here’s a partial list of what I’ll be reading next year:

A bet was made…

I’ve started writing this story months ago and wrote a short prologue to it. Please let me know what you think and if you’re interested in reading the rest :)

Two beings made a bet that won’t only change their lives, but has terrible consequences for everyone involved. And possibly the world.
