Fan Art (1 of 2), birthdays and rabbit holes

I'm still pretty damn sick. Fevers all through yesterday and last night (without the insulating power of scotch, I'm sorry to say), plus any number of other symptoms. Despite this fact, I did wake up this morning, and it was January 27. Which means that I have successfully cheated death for another year.

The best birthday present I could receive was seriously cool fiction, and that's been heartily available thanks to Down the Rabbit Hole day. See, I share my birthday with Lewis Carroll, and so this fellow called Crisper (fellow being unisex, because hey, how should I know?) suggested that instead of a crappy meme about how many pieces of Halloween Candy you received or something like that, this should be a meme where for 24 hours you write about the strange new world you woke up in, through the looking glass or down the rabbit hole.

I loved the very idea of it. And so I wrote a five part entry myself. If you'd like to have a look, they're here: Part One, Part Two, Part Three, Part Four, and finally Part Five. Feel free to have a look if you want.

If you'd like to see some more primo examples of Down the Rabbit Holery, my good friend Greg Fishbone has been collecting examples of the best he's seen today. If you've been following along on Livejournal and seen one or two that Greg's missed, send them along to him for inclusion.

As it is my birthday, I should mention a couple of gifts I've recently received. Namely, two pieces of art, both coming out of Arisia (which I still owe you a report from -- I've been very sick recently, in my defense). One really needs an entry all to itself, so it'll go up in a bit. This one, however, is an adorable Snarky in the Snow (not exactly Sad Snarky in Snow, either), done by the talented Poinko of Fever Dream. (You know, that comic title is apropos given how I feel...) It's so cute, and Snarky looks so thrilled! Yay!

The other piece of art... heh. You'll see.

Damn. I hope you start feeling better soon. I'd send some healing energy your way but I've been told of late that my energy boosts have a tendency to knock people onto their asses. *shiftyeyes* Featherweights, I swear... ;)

Anyway, I hope you'll be feeling better soon. Take care.

Oh my god, that is too cute for words.

Then again, a sad Snarky in snow would probably be pretty cute, too...

I'm not sure what this indicates, Eric, but not only do you share a birthday with Lewis Carroll and Mozart, but you also share your day with the liberation of Auschwitz by the Russian Army. I'm not sure what, if anything that does to your writing mojo, but there it is.

(Loved the rabbit-hole story, and the artwork, btw, as have I enjoyed reading every damn word you've posted here for 3 months -- keep it up)
