"Do you care if I might not be able to post more Gem OCs before Christmas?"

I'm self-conscious about my drawing abilities right now, so I'm not sure whether I can deliver good enough looking gem OCs without resorting to edits on known gems. I don't like that any more than you do.

Also, I'm focusing on an original universe for a long while, and I'm concerned that I have too much on my plate to focus on one or the other; as I said, I made a wiki for my OCs so developments could, and should, continue.…

Believe me, none of my properties are retiring, but that's the problem; they're vying for my attention inside my brain, and they're like crabs in a bucket.
Okay, definitely taking a nice, long break from #stevenuniverse stuff for a while as I focus on finishing the semester and working out mental issues.

I just want one thing from you, though... I've been struggling to make sense of these polymorphic sentient rocks, so barring a reasonable explanation from the Crewniverse, what would be a good theory for my gems' existence?

Given three restrictions:
1. The gems in my AU are naturally born, not manufactured by some higher power until Diamonds commission the infusion of mineral mines with life.
2. They're also varied in gender identity and appearance. No explanation so far from me other than there's no real reason for them to be all-female, either.
3. The AU's Gem-beasts are not corruptions, but throwbacks or otherwise of a different programming, accepted for what they are.
Any advice on my Gemsonas? I feel like I've come across some problems I can't rectify.

Should I post more character references from my Steven Universe AU, A Course in Advanced Rebellion, or should I expound more on its storyline(s)?

One would be easier, the other would be more interesting.

I'm going to be altering the watch statuses of some of my watches from dAhub, as I'm not liking what I'm reading from them. Anyone objecting to this, speak now.

Made my Gem-related Wiki

Journal Entry: Wed Dec 6, 2017, 8:05 PM
UPDATE: It's here! Please don't muck it up too badly.

Currently cramming for finals, but once I get that over with, I'll be dedicated to my projects for the next fortnight, give or take some weeks (you know how college is :P)

Meanwhile, my gem universe is expanding at a rate of knots, so here's a sneak preview of characters coming up.

A lot of ins and outs, a lot of strands to keep in the old Cupcake's head, but fortunately I'm on a pretty strict fanwank regime.Cough

The only reason I'm doing a Wikipedia as opposed to a folder here on DA or a blog on Tumblr or elsewhere is I want my fan universe, A Course in Advanced Rebellion, to be a living document, and the process of editing and revising art is already a difficult enough task here or on a blog; at least on a wiki, it's actively encouraged. You may disagree, but frankly my major reason for wanting to start a wiki is that I need editors and revisers more than critics and passively interested people.

If you need compensation, that's one thing I can provide -- I'd love to commission artists and writers to aid in my projects and support like-minded creatives -- but I'd mostly like to take the weight of this fandom off of me in a holistic way, not to kill off all these FCs for the purposes of focusing on totally "original" content. I figure providing a solid platform for collaborating on my work should satisfy these desires.

Art and main writings will stay on DeviantArt, so as to provide a citable source for the Wiki, but some things will be Wiki-exclusive so as to provide encyclopedic data for my AU. In addition, I'll be posting more updates on original works once my fan universe is somewhat out of the way. Hopefully that won't be a problem for those who've been following me primarily for my fandom dabblings.

In the meantime, here's my Christmas List and my call for Christmas Commissionees.

Have yourself a merry little what-have-you; Merry Christmas to those that celebrate that, Happy Hanukkah, Peaceful Bodhi Day, Yippie for Yalda, Cool Kwanzaa, and delicious Chinese-food-eating day for everyone else.

DISCLAIMER: Not intended to be a comprehensive list of worshippers and merry-makers. Don't sue me if your religious observance isn't included.

How can you help?
Keep donating, keep favoriting, keep llamaing, but most importantly, keep me company. A thank you for me going out of my way to pay attention to your stuff isn't company -- it's free advertisement disguised as compliments -- if you really have something to say to me, I have notes and a comment below to reply to. Anything above that comment will be hidden.

And please, for sanity's sake, if I post something unduly anywhere, if I insult friends or rant on about some conspiracy, don't take it personally. Don't ignore it, don't pretend it never happened, just forgive and move on.
