  2. Chapter IX, in which Anna finds herself at the end of the rainbow
All the time she was stuck in the confusing and dangerous Wyssun World, Anna was desperately trying to get home. But as it always happens in fairy tales, the way home is shorter than one thinks. The end!
The relationship between human-alvan hybrid Yaret and his best friend, a pureblooded Alva named Féargas, is very intimate, they’ve cared about each other for over a thousand years. Like all my Alva, Féargas is shelled in a Dollshe Hound.  4 4 days ago
  3. Chapter VIII, in which Anna figures out how the things wrap up
Anna struggles with her newly acquired insights. Old adversaries show up to confuse her, and old friends to offer guidance. Or is it the other way around?
The Skiers are young men from different parts of Earth, all different and yet all similar in one important way. I never had plans to shell all the Skiers, so use your imagination. Any beautiful boy sculpt will do. 3 5 days ago
  4. Chapter VII, in which Anna gets exactly what she wants
Ghosts of the past come to resolve some of Anna’s burning questions. She won her answers, but why does the victory taste so bitter?
A gentler re-imagining of Migidoll Ryu. 3 6 days ago
  5. Chapter VI, in which Anna comes close to losing her head
Lord Yaret makes an appearance, and oh what a dramatic appearance it is.
Yaret is my oldest and most favorite character. He was the reason why I got into bjds in the first place. He is shelled in Soom Sabik Elf, and I can’t think of a more perfect image. Since Lord Yaret of the Otherworld has an elaborate armor, I’m yet to fully customize my second Sabik in WS… that’s a project for another time. 8 1 week ago
  6. Chapter V, in which Anna sees a Skier in his element
Take a look at Anna’s oblivious crush through her eyes.

Sanny, the young Skier who unwittingly drew Anna into the Otherworld, is shelled in Migidoll Ryu. I don’t show that doll much, perhaps I might in the future, he is a great multilayered character and a sweet doll. 5 1 week ago
  7. Chapter IV, in which Anna’s mind is blown
Anna’s getting more and more entangled in the bizarre Wyssun World, and apparently, her presence has drawn attention of another bizarre - if not creepy - character. Will he be a friend or foe?
Without giving out any spoilers, let’s just say that this one is a big deal for all  involved. The adult novel I’m working on spun out of this singular encounter. This is probably my favorite chapter.  8 1 week ago
  8. Chapter III, in which Anna plays with fire
Every reluctant heroine needs a magical helper, and for Anna it’s Semille - a Scout who is capable of freely moving between our world and the Otherword. Unlike the eternally young Skiers and ageless Alva, he is a human man, albeit not entirely normal.
Since I didn’t have a specific shell for Semille, I encouraged my illustrator to fulfill her own vision. If you look closely, you will recognize the memorable face that inspired her. 6 1 week ago
  9. Chapter II, in which Anna’s situation starts to flesh out
Against her better judgment, Anna follows a strange boy into what turns out to be a snow-covered netherworld inhabited by the peculiar Skiers, whose only purpose is to hunt the monstrous creatures known as Wyssun. Mistaken for a boy, Anna is accepted by the Skiers as one of their own, and becomes trapped in the Wyssun World.
One of the first exotic characters Anna meets in the Wyssun World is a mysterious elf-like being named Llewelys, who is represented in resin by a Dollshe Hound. 12 1 week ago
  10. Chapter I, In which Anna finds herself in a really dark predicamentA competitive athlete, down-to-earth and downright snarky, fourteen-year-old Anna is the girl least likely to lose herself in a fairy tale. It’s her first winter in New York City, where she has just moved with her mother and stepfather, but the city’s magic is lost on her. She hates everything about her new life. She especially resents her mother, who has remarried soon after her father’s death – too soon for Anna’s taste. After another argument, she defiantly sneaks out to ski in Riverside Park.
Much to her surprise she meets another cross-country skier, an attractive, if somewhat eccentric boy about her own age, and develops an immediate crush.

Since my dolls are shells of my characters, when working on the book art my wonderful illustrator was to a great degree inspired by them. A bjd version of young Anna is Dollstown Rian. I think the character of a inquisitive and feisty yet vulnerable young girl is captured perfectly. 7 1 week ago
