Hey there! Just a friendly citizen making sure that you aren't dead from all those emails :)

Hi! Gimme a couple more days and I should be able to finish responding. I’ve pretty much read everything but making individual responses is time consuming, and I’ve been doing that between Otakon commitments and other projects I need to take care of.

Yo, guys, remember last April I went to go see The Lightning Thief Musical concert and it was a super cute show and everyone who’s a fan of the books should go see it?
Well, if you can come to New York City this Thursday at 6:30pm I have an exclusive invite from Theatreworks for the opening night show*, and I can bring a few more fans with me for free. I only have a few tickets so it’s on a first come, first serve basis. Just message me by 12PM EST Wednesday, with your name to secure a spot.
Otherwise, if you can’t come this Thursday you can check out the show’s schedule here. They’ll be playing all summer in NYC for free. Theatreworks is such a rad organization that allows kids, regardless of their monetary situation, to be exposed early to theater and as a huge fan of the theater, I’m glad to support them. :)
*note that tickets are only for the show, and not the afterparty.

Will you be announcing who you'e collaborating with here on tumblr or will you just email out saying whether or not the person was excepted?

@Anonymous

Just a general update on what’s up with all of this, since I’ve gotten a couple questions. Almost 20 people sent me emails (which is AWESOME by the way) so there’s a lot to go over and read. Since they all gave me the courtesy of emailing me their work, I will do them the courtesy of reading and responding to everybody (even if it is a short response.) That might be a little impractical, but it’s not impossible, and as much as I want to collaborate with EVERYBODY I need to take things one step at a time. 

I’m still not finished reading everything, and it’s going to be hard choosing only one person for now, but I’m hoping to keep the others in mind for future collaborations if they’re still willing.


TAGGED: Anonymous arielle talks a lot


Hey so when do you think you'll be announcing who you'll be collaborating with?

@Anonymous

Hi! I’ve got a few more emails than anticipated (and I’m still accepting emails until tomorrow-ish) and so it’s a fair bit of writing to read through. Like I said, I want to be careful and considerate about this because even if this is only a fun short story comic, it’s still a commitment of time on both the writer and artist’s ends. “Short” comics can wind up having long production times, so I don’t want to jump the gun and rush into something I’m not 100% sure I want to dedicate my time to.

(On a related note: I’ve read some great things so far. There are some really talented writers out there!)

man you know what I’d love to do? collaborate on a short story comic with a writer. I love writing and story structure, but it seriously stresses me out so much that sometimes I just want someone else to take care of it for me so I can focus on visual narrative.

Alright, guys. I’ve been getting some messages from some of ya’ll about possible collaborations and that’s amazing and exciting! *u* So, if you’re seriously interested feel free to shoot me an email at arielle[dot]jovellanos@gmail. You can send me links to your writing, excerpts, or even just some pitches of a short story you’d like to make. I’ll read over everything I receive and let you know if we’d be a good fit. (I’ve already received a couple things that I’ll look over in the morning. It’s really late here!)

Obligatory disclaimer: Obviously, I don’t want to waste anyone’s time and we’re all busy people, so a collaboration (even if it is just for fun) isn’t worth doing if we’re not both passionate about the material we’re working on—meaning I’m going to be very careful and considerate about finding a potential writing partner.

That being said, if you’re still interested please feel free to contact me!

Afternoon reblog. Thanks for all the inquiries so far guys! Will look at them all later in the day. (Have to take care of a few other responsibilities first but I can’t wait to read everything!!)

The way I got to intern at Frederator is an extremely harrowing tale full of dangerous mystique, government secrets, and disgruntled (puppy)cats.
But the short version of the story is this: Last year at NYCC, I dressed up as Fishbowl Space Bee, and ran into Frederator’s Director of Marketing, Publicity, & Licensing on the train into the city. We had a nice conversation as we made our way to the convention center. He gave me a card, offered me an internship position, and I followed up via email a week later. I got called in for an interview and was taken on as an intern for Spring semester. It was a coincidence. A very fortunate coincidence.
That being said, if you wanna go through the process sans the costume, emailing someone directly will probably net similar results. (You can find contacts through their site.) All the other interns I’ve talked to have said that’s how they did it, but I’ve also known one who just walked into the NYC office and asked in person. I know they’ve already hired all their interns for the summer, but I’m sure they’re going to be looking for people for the fall. Best of luck! It’s a very fun environment to be in and the best internship I’ve ever had. If you have anymore questions, let me know!

Oooh! Your AU is awesome! Peggy would make a brilliant quidditch captain :D would they all be gryffindor? What about the other Avengers? I imagine Thor is also a beater haha. I want mooooooooooore :DDDDD

@Anonymous

You opened the flood gates and now everyone will know my shame because this is ridiculously elaborate.

It’s kind of a terrible way to sort people, but a lot of this was because we really wanted to have the quidditch teams be equally good so they can fight it out and be awesome and also I hate “all protagonists are Gryffindor” syndrome. Admittedly some of the houses aren’t quite perfect fits.

Steve, Bucky, and the Howling Commandos are the entire Gryffindor quidditch team (give or take a few members, since there are more HC than there are spots on the team.) Peggy is the team captain. They’re lame and have team nicknames embroidered on their robes. Sad part of this: Peggy gets hits with a bad memory charm at some point when HYDRA things start going down. Steve honors Peggy by embroidering CAP on his robes.

Thor, the Warrior’s 3, and Sif make up the Hufflepuff quidditch team. Clint’s the Hufflepuff seeker who shows up to quidditch games 15 minutes late with Starbucks and still manages to casually catch the snitch. Except when they’re playing against Slytherin, ‘cause Nat’s his biggest seeking competition. She keeps him on his toes. They’re BFFs and go into each other’s common rooms all the time because people are too scared to kick them out.

Bruce is Ravenclaw and for some reason has a curse that makes him turn into a mountain troll when he’s angry hahaha. He’s similar to Lupin and tries to stay away from people, until he unexpectedly makes friends with Tony and they bond over science. (“TROLL IN THE DUNGEON” “Oh. Yeah. That’s just Bruce.”)

Tony is pureblood Ravenclaw, son of a huge magic tool manufacturer, and has no need for teams. Besides, he’s too busy trying to figure out how to bring WiFi to campus because he and his late father are the kind of guys that see the merits of combining magic and science. He eventually succeeds and makes a small fortune selling the password to muggleborns. Later, Pepper helps him manage the business because it’s annoying when people bother him all the time with network connectivity problems. It’s awesome, until they eventually realize too late the WiFI has been compromised by HYDRA as a spying device.

Nick Fury is headmaster. Maria Hill is deputy headmistress. Coulson is a head of house.

Loki gets sorted Slytherin, away from his brother and friends, and is mad about it and the fact that everyone keeps expecting him to really good at quidditch and Care of Magical Creatures like his brother. The opportunity to play double agent for HYDRA presents itself to him. He takes it.
