Don't forget, this isn't all I've got. I encourage you to browse through some of my older deviations, too! And PLEASE leave your comments!

Random Favourites

I don't have a lot of favorites. Giftart is the only thing I can be counted on to fave; you can find it in the "Friendables" folder.

I don't critique much, but I still give more critiques than I receive. But those of you with premium memberships can fix that, right?

Short Story (normal)
Self-explanatory.  Tell me exactly what you want, and you'll get it.  I'll write about just about anything, but be prepared to supply any reference materials I request.
Short Story (blind)
Like the normal Short Story commission, but with a twist: you're not allowed to specify a single detail about what you want.  I'll just do something I think you'll like.
Short Story (semi-blind)
The median between normal and blind.  You're allowed to specify one or two details-- the main character, or the theme, or perhaps even the title-- but that's it.
Got a fictional 'verse you're proud of, but that could use one or two more characters?  I'd be happy to make a character for it!  (Pictoral references not available; textual profiles only.)
Yesterday I finally decided to cave in and get a FurAffinity account.  My username is SonicInterface; my profile page is here.  I've already cross-posted a few of my works from here to there, and plan to do more just as soon as I choose some appropriate ones.  Anyone is free to make suggestions.

In other news, I'm sick.  My throat's been sore for two days now, and my nose is irritatingly stuffy.

...That's it, I guess.

Journal History


The feeling of tightness in your scales was the first sign that the day of your next skin-shedding was about to come.

Over the past few days, the sensation has intensified, spreading throughout your body as your skin felt tighter and tighter.  Finally, just this morning, your scaly hide began to split.

You lock yourself in your bedroom and take off all your clothes.  Examining yourself in the mirror, you find the telltale rip in your scales, the vulnerable layer of skin visible underneath.

You can just reach the spot.  Catching the loose layer of skin to one side, you pull, but the skin fails to give.  You fetch a skinning knife that you keep around for this exact reason, and lightly apply it, gently slicing the skin open like tape under a box cutter.

Soon the opening is large enough that you can slip it over your head.  You pull the skin down as though you were taking off a costume, carefully slipping your limbs out of it.

Finally, your former layer of scales is on the floor, completely separated from you.  Being free of it is a wonderful sensation, especially after how tight it's felt for the past few days.

You carefully pull your clothes back on, feeling an enhanced tactile sensation as they rub against you.  With your old skin off, your body is much more sensitive than before, and will stay that way until your new layer grows in.

You pick up the shed scales, turning it over in your hands, finding recognizable features of your own body in it.  Turning it upright, you fold it neatly into a bundle, then leave the room with it in your hands.

Later, in the kitchen, you wash your shed skin thoroughly in the sink, then chop it into pieces on a cutting board.  You'll prepare a stew from it; stewed skin is always so nutritious.

Read this story on FurAffinity

"Lizards, like snakes, rub against objects to help remove their shed skin and then consume the shed skin for calcium and other nutrients." --Wikipedia

I've got to do research more often.  The results can be so interesting and worthy of writing about.

I got to thinking about how reptiles shed their skin, and I ended up wondering what it would feel like.  In an art community so populated by anthros, it should be a subject worth attention.  (Which reminds me-- I've got to crosspost this to FurAffinity.)
*polite kid's voice* "I don't have a dollar, Mr. Ice Cream Man, but I really want a choc-vanilla bar... could I sing you a song instead of paying you a dollar?"

The mental image you should get from that line pretty much describes the art trade negotiations I'm currently in the middle of.
(character's full name) glanced over the empty backpack on the floor in front of him, assessing the dimensions of its interior and making some mental calculations.  The backpack was definitely not made for the purpose he intended to use it for, but then again it probably would have defeated the purpose if it were.

Nodding in satisfaction, the (species) stuck one foot into the backpack's main compartment, then the other.  Carefully he lowered himself into the backpack, having to fold his body tightly against itself in order to fit.  Soon he was pulling the backpack up around himself, preparing to close it up.

No... not quite.  The backpack's fabric was taut, but he could feel the top of his head sticking out.  But (name) wasn't giving up.  He shifted his body and curled up a little more tightly, focusing on filling up the little bits of empty space around him as efficiently as possible.  Lo and behold, his head cleared the opening.  With a little effort, he freed one hand and used it to push the zipper closed, sealing himself up inside the backpack.

The instant the light of the room disappeared, (name) relaxed significantly.  This was his favorite thing to do: to cram himself into tight spaces not made for a person to occupy.  The tighter his enclosure, the more content he was.  To him, these little hiding places were welcome shelters from the intimidating vastness of the outside world.

Comfortable in his backpack enclosure, the (species) drifted off to sleep.  Tomorrow he would look for someplace new to squeeze himself into.  Already his mind drifted to a seller of ceramic pots of various sizes down at the marketplace.  No doubt one of those pots would be a suitable vessel for his flexible (species) body...
Sketch: Tight Squeeze
I don't know why I wrote this.  I think I was just trying to get myself to understand the rationales behind certain tastes I don't happen to have, and this was one of the few formats in which I knew how to do it.

(The page is headed by a picture of the five Scouts together.  Each one appears to be between 8 and 12 years old, and they're all dressed in scout uniforms.  The boys' uniforms are black with orange trim; the girls', black with purple.  Each uniform has the troop's insignia on it: a white outline of a bat with its wings outstretched.  Otherwise, the uniforms are standard scout uniforms.)

1. Synopsis and background

The Spooky Scouts is a cartoon show by Sneezing Wolf Studios.  The show debuted shortly after Black and White and Annabelle the Cleaner were canceled, and unlike them, has become a huge hit; in fact, as of this writing it's begun its third season.  Its success is believed to be due to its even mix between humor and action, unlike the aforementioned two shows which tended towards opposite extremes of the spectrum.

The show stars the titular Spooky Scouts, a Halloween-themed, Eagle Scout-like team of five scouts.  The Scouts vary in appearance and personality, and their differences can lead to conflict among them, but they're capable of working together to overcome any obstacle.  They tackle various Scout activities together, including practicing survival skills, helping those in need, and of course, selling Spooky Scout cookies door-to-door.

2. Main characters

(A picture of Crimson in a confident pose.  She resembles a standard Mobian bat; her main body is dark red-- in RRGGBB hexadecimal, it'd be about A00000-- while her wings are a darker red.  Her eyes are brown, and she has visible fangs.  In her right hand, she's holding a red juice box that... well, just read the description.)
Crimson the vampire bat is the unofficial leader of the team.  She's level-headed and can keep calm when the other Scouts can't; to this end, she's typically the one to rein in the other Scouts when they misbehave.  She's often seen drinking from a red juice box marked "AB+".

(A picture of Alexa in an enthusiastic pose.  She's a black Mobian cat with green eyes, and wears a witch's hat in addition to her uniform.  Her right hand is surrounded by a light purple glow; that must be what it looks like when she uses her magic.)
Alexa the black cat / witch is a huge bookworm; books are like catnip to her, and it's hard to tear her away from one.  Reading is her favorite pastime by far, and there's no limit to what she'll read.  Due to this, she has a wide berth of knowledge on many subjects, and it's not uncommon for her to quote passages from books relating to the current situation.

(A picture of Rover in a contented pose, his tail wagging.  He looks like a dark brown Mobian wolf, but shaggier and with visible fangs in his mouth and black claws on his fingers and toes.  His eyes are closed, but the group picture above revealed that he has amber eyes.)
Rover the werewolf is something of a ditz.  More often than not, he tends to behave more like an over-sized puppy dog than a person, which has resulted in more than one hilarious incident between him and Alexa.  He's the most agile of the Scouts, and is excellent at tracking by scent.

(A picture of Finn in a nervous pose.  His main body color is dark green with a shade of blue-- 008040 in RRGGBB hex-- and his eyes are blue.  His general appearance is best described by the term "fish-man".)
Finn the swamp monster is a huge neat freak.  He doesn't tolerate messiness, be it his own or anyone else's, and he always towels himself off thoroughly as soon as he leaves the water.  He's also the most formal Scout of the five, using pleases and thank-yous without fail and addressing Crimson as "Captain".  His keen eye for detail is his most valuable asset, though his agility in the water is nothing to sneeze at either.

(A picture of Spin in a dominating pose, a few strands of web pulled taut between her hands.  Her coloring is natural for a black widow, and her eyes are green.  She, too, has visible fangs.  She has two normal arms and two normal legs, plus four spider legs coming from her back-- a good thing to know since there's so much variance in that area when it comes to Mobian spiders!)
Spin the black widow is rather hotheaded.  She believes her solution to a problem (usually involving brute force or a spider web) is always the best, and isn't good at thinking before acting.  She calms down more easily when she's spinning webs.  Her physical strength is superior to any other Scout's, and she knows it.

3. Trivia

One of the best-known pieces of promo art of The Spooky Scouts features the five Scouts standing in a line on a moonlit sidewalk, each one displaying a box of Spooky Scout cookies in their own way.  From left to right: Spin dangles her box (Spidersilk Coconut Stripes) from her hand by a web strand, Alexa levitates her box (Black Magic Peanut Butter) with magic, Crimson holds her box (Bloody Strawberry Icing) normally, Finn also holds his box (Monster Mint) normally while looking at Rover and cringing, and Rover sits on all fours holding his box (Full Moon Vanilla) in his mouth.

In contexts relating directly to the show, Rover will often take the place of the drippy-nosed wolf in the Sneezing Wolf Studios logo.

When the show was in its first season, SWS partnered with a sweets company to produce boxes of actual Spooky Scout cookies to sell in stores, in order to promote the show.  Nowadays, those boxes are considered collector's items, although rumor has it they're planning a second run due to popular demand.

Have you ever had an idea, and it just kept growing and growing in your head, and you knew it had a huge block of potential?  I think that's what I've got here.  That and I've been meaning to expand the SWS circle.

I don't think I'm very good at relaxing.

I like to stay on top of things.  I spend most of my free time checking my messages over and over again.  Few things bother me like having loose ends to tie up.  I always like to know what time it is, and hate to let time slip away from me.  In those respects, at least, I'm a Type A personality.  (I'm pretty sure a pure Type A wouldn't procrastinate as much as I do.)

When it comes to video games, I'm goal-oriented.  I can't play to "get as high a score as I can"; I have to have some sort of goal to strive for.  And I'm a bit competitive, too; I especially hate to lose.  So I suppose that's out the window as a relaxation activity.

I'm goal-oriented when writing, too.  I don't write for leisure; I write for a purpose, be it to make a point or to fulfill a particular desire or set of requirements.

I think I relax best when I'm reorganizing something.  I've made quite a few improvements on the layout of my living quarters.  But there isn't always a need for such improvements.

Just in case it's relevant, I've noticed I have a habit of chewing sugar-free gum.  I prefer fruit flavors to mint flavors; the latter just doesn't taste good to me.

Open question to my watchers: What do you do to relax?

SaberPhone - concept sketch by sonicinterface
SaberPhone - concept sketch
Tmaneea and I are well acquainted; he's the only member of DeviantUniverse that I follow, and although that's originally by coincidence, I don't regret it in the slightest.  His character SaberCat is... well, I can't explain that concisely, but all you need to know is that he's one of T's characters in D.U.  If you want to learn more about Saber, SaberCat-Central is a group all about him.

Anyways, someone else's entry in a D.U. contest-competition-thing featured SaberCat using a cell phone and getting somewhat somewhat selfie-happy with it.  Tmaneea commented on it, explaining that Saber isn't actually allowed to use one, due to the fact that with his super-strength and general attitude towards brute force, he'd most likely break it almost immediately.  (Read here.)

I must have the mind of an engineer or something, because upon reading that, I instantly began designing the concept for this in my head.  Simply put, it's a smartphone that Saber can handle without instantly crushing.

The SaberPhone was designed by Catherine Brewster exclusively for her son.  It's a basic smartphone in appearance and function, with a touchscreen (1), three navigation buttons (2), front- and rear-facing cameras (3), a volume control (4), and a notch to attach an optional carrying strap (5).  The phone is solid black, and the pictures and letters on it are white; I didn't color the picture as such because then the details wouldn't have been visible.

Not visible in this picture is a special sensor in the phone that detects the strength of its user's grip, and uses that data to determine whether or not said user is "Sabered up".  As for what this information is used for... I'm not really sure, but I'm sure there's something worthwhile that can be made of it.

The diagrams at the bottom show the details of what the phone is made from, color-coded to show what's where.  The gray areas represent solid diamond, and the orange areas are carefully woven SaberCat fur, dyed to be less recognizable.  (The aforementioned optional carrying strap would also be made of woven fur.)  The two aforementioned substances make up the phone's casing in two layers: diamond on the inside, fur on the outside.

The blue areas are a special transparent, plastic-like material designed to be scratch-proof and everything-else-proof.  This material was developed by Team Champion for use in their own equipment (or do you think a team whose whole job is to fight off ultra-powerful superhuman beasts wouldn't sink some research dollar into equipment their quarry couldn't demolish so easily?).  Catherine's a brilliant businesswoman; I'm sure she had some means of acquiring the material from them.  The camera lenses themselves aren't made of this material, just protected by it.

With these three materials used in tandem, the result is a smartphone that could be fed through a wood chipper, dropped from a skyscraper onto a concrete sidewalk, and trampled by an elephant-- and not have a scratch to show for any of it.  The Nokia 3310's got nothing on this piece of hardware.

...And no, there's no Minecraft app on the phone.  Saber would never get anything done otherwise.

I don't have a proper muse, so I take my inspiration where I can get it.  No, this isn't from personal experience.
Can anyone here think of any circumstances under which asking someone to "stop being logical" would be a reasonable thing to do?

Because that was recently asked of me.

To answer your question, Interface. Your generalized work attracts anyone who finds it interesting. If you narrowed your interests into a few things, you'd only attract anyone with a shared interest in that subject.

For example, if you just wrote stories based around the Legend of Zelda games, you'd attract fans of those games. The same goes for any franchise regardless of whether it's popular or obscure. Given your preference to work in familiar and unfamiliar territories, the audience you tend to draw in reflects this.
