Adrasteius: Really?  Really.

I'm all hopped up on Coke right now (no, not THAT kind of Coke.. the soda =P), so I just sketched two pages of Karma. I know there's no way in hell I can ink and color them both before Bryan returns to remove Malfactor's internet (and thus my way of transferring scanned files from Malf to Leliel ;_;), but oh well. Anyway, after reading that submitting an entry to the Tokypop Manga Contest (I'm too lazy to link it, I don't really care about competition anymore) basically gives them exclusive rights to the story, I'm a little nervous. I'm fairly well versed on the idea of rights, but I'm going to review the rules and think about this.

On the plus side, it says that group submissions are OK.

What I'm mostly worried about is not being able to use the characters Twolle and I have created--which are new people created exclusively for this story--elsewhere. The locales are old though--Vinton, as all my readers know, is the town in which all of my stories take place, and the Cereberus Mansion (which is where the story takes place) is in both Claris Project and Clarity (though it's featured more heavily in the latter than the former). I don't really care what they do with the story, but if it means that I also can't do what I want, then I ain't so sure about this. I still want to do the story and do a manga with Twolle though.

Well, let me investigate a bit first.

I'm not sure why, but when anyone outside of my immediate family (mother, father, EVIL TWIN) calls me 'Courtney' I wince inside. I can't even understand it, I just feel weird whenever someone refers to me by that name. I just feel so much better being called Lyn, although of course I would never jump down your throat or start hating you if you called me Courtney, since I know it's tough to change what you call someone.

It's not really a big deal, I'm just amazed at how I get a strange twinge when I see or hear myself being referred to as Courtney.. I guess cause I've gone by lyn for so long.
