Short version: Not dead.
"You've been busy, haven't you? Quite the busy little bee.." mhm. hence the lack of updates. sorry.
If you've been following me all this while, I congratulate you.
Hopefully this return will bring about something familiar but with a quality of surprise! I'm certainly endeavouring to, with the new year and all.
Hurrah, me is back. Gimme cookie.
