SW: Jaeriel's Nephew Jaeriel rolled the Ace in the Hole-her customized A-wing-through a series of blazing fast maneuvers as she evaded the incoming fire from the Imperial ground forces. Around her the rest of Goldsaber Squadron in their motley array of craft performed similar feats as they dove and weaved through the fierce anti-aero barrages from the Imperial ground forces.SW: Jaeriel's Nephew by SlingBlade87
"Careful Jaeriel," Quinn Shara cautioned over the com. "They aren't messing around."
"Then we have something in common," Jaeriel replied as she switched her targeting sensor on her helmet on, letting it sync with her ship's cluster missiles. "Targets acquired, firing!"
Two concussion missiles sailed out from their launchers alongside the Ace's flanks, the warheads sailing towards the Imperial ground formation before suddenly splitting into six sub-munitions each which homed in on specific targets designated by Jaeriel and the Ace's sensors. The Imperial f
Hi there folks', I'm Mike, but most folks know me as Midori, call me whatever!|
I'm just yer' regular guy... Pfft--- Couldn't type that with a straight face...
First things first I'm nearly blind, I'm completely blind in my right eye and have heavily impaired vision in my left, thankfully my sexy glasses are a big help!
I'm also Dyspraxic, so have terrible co-ordination, both these things make drawing difficult, but it's not gonna stop me trying, I may not be the best artist, but I enjoy giving it my all. ^_^
I'm quite shy also, but I'm always hopeful to make new friends, so if you want to spark up a conversation, or just simply comment on my artwork, please, feel free, I love the chance to interact with people, and will try my very best to respond as soon as possible! I also greatly appreciate all feedback on my artwork!
Anyhow, why am I here?
I once got told that I'd never be able to draw because of my eyes, so I said, Hey, you want a bet? And that's what brought me here to DeviantArt, my home at (and occasionally away from) home! I wish I actually put MONEY down on that bet...
What do I like?
First things first, I LOVE STAR WARS.
Like, an absurd amount, as such I've created my own OCs, and an AU that run's parallel to the old canon/Expanded Universe, most of my artwork currently will be dedicated to that story and it's characters, I hope very much that you'll enjoy it! My AU also crosses over with other folk's AUs, and I'm a proud member of the group: A-Galaxy-of-Our-Own , my artwork/AU can be found in the "Memoirs" folder!
Please check it out, all of it's contributors are excellent artists, and great folks too!
By the way, if you couldn't tell, I love Manga and Anime, Especially cute Yuri fluff!
I love tons of different music, from J-pop to Rock to Heavy Metal, and I worship Dave Grohl and the Foo Fighters almost religiously...
I also LOVE stand-up comedy, especially British stand-up, my favourite comedians are Dara O'Briain, and John Bishop.
I have MAAAAANY FANDOMS. Anime/manga wise, there are far too many to list...
None anime/manga, my main fandoms are generally mostly Sci-fi. XD
My artistic goals?
My long term goal is to publish some Manga comics, and maybe eventually self-publish! Hopefully in a few years time I'll be good enough! ^w^
I'd love to create some Yuri-themed comics in particular.
I'd also love to create some Star Wars fan-comics (mostly focusing on fan-characters), and enjoy collaborating with friends on our AUs! ^_^
Other useless info.
I occasionally do crazy stuff to raise money for charity, mainly Marie Curie Cancer Care
Here is a video of me skydiving to raise money for them: www.youtube.com/watch?v=rcXV7D…
I have a Glasses Fetish that borders on the unhealthy...
My anime Hero is Vash the Stampede from Trigun.
Also, I'm actually a smuggler from Corellia, so, like... Don''t ever tell me the odds, we Corellians hate that.
I guess that's really it...? Anyway, thank you for visiting my page, I really appreciate it, feel free to say hi and leave feedback, really, don't be shy!
Peace and Love!
Icon by the amazing maybelletea, her artwork is fantastic, check it out!

"Aww... Then juice..."
Me: I quite like Cider, though I get hungover way too easily...
3(.5?). Do you have a favorite book?
"Oh man, there are too many... though those that interest me the most are books containing stories about Jedi, they're hard to find though, as the Empire outlawed em', but sometimes you get lucky, heh, it ain't like they can burn EVERY book in the galaxy!"
"I can't read yet... B-but Moms teaching me, I'm getting good, I know the whole Aurebesh almost!"
"Heheh, almost Cornflower, I'm proud of ya'!"
Me: I honestly don't read many books, I read a lot of manga and comic, though I'm not sure if the count, Novels wise I'm waiting on the re-release of the Thrawn Trilogy under the Legends banner... It WILL be re-released... r-right...? ;w:
4. Are you single or taken?
"I'm not really interested in romance or sex, I don't really have the time."

"I-- I don't really have any skills..."
"Oh shush, that's definitely not true, you make everyone smile wherever you go, THAT'S a skill I'M jealous of!"

17. What kind of question is number 17?
"I guess at the very least it's a question, unlike 10, 11, 14, and 15... that's... A positive maybe?"

He set that psycho Kiri on us, and DON'T even get me started on Galgriev, that lunatic! Again, LUCKY I'M A JEDI!"
"... Th- thank you... For giving me a Mom, I know we go through a lot, and I know it's your fault... But at least I have Quinn... So... Thank you..." ((I'm just awful... ))
Me: I honestly love these two like they're my children, thanks to them I've learned so much about developing characters and stories, but even more importantly I've become friends with some wonderful people through our characters, and as such I look forward to creating many more adventures for Quinn, Orchid, and co.!
I tag: No one in particular, anyone who feels like doing it really!
