The Internet Is For...

ahahahaha, so yes, I have in fact gotten an (awesome!) porny Temeraire fanart for the contest. *is dying of laughter* I love fandom. \o/

Speaking of which, this is a reminder! There's a little more than a week left in the Temeraire fanart contest: the deadline is August 31! (If you are an inveterate procrastinator, not that I resemble this remark or anything, as long as it is August 31 anywhere in the world it's fine). I hope you're all having fun working on art for the contest, and I am loving seeing what everyone is coming up with. :D

If you missed this earlier, here are all the contest details!

Also, to answer one more question that has arisen: if you have a piece that illustrates an existing scene from the books, yes, that *IS* welcome in the contest! I can always write a story that shows the scene from a different character's POV, or an alternate-universe retelling.

Meanwhile, I am settled in at home at last after much journeying and alas, a round of getting sick, bah. :P I have still to post one more drabble from San Diego prompts, and also pictures of many awesome Temeraire-related things acquired on my travels, and they will come! but this week has been all about a last round of edits on my manga, now finally complete with title: Will Supervillains Be On The Final? (Liberty Vocational volume 1) and getting a super-belated (in fact, despaired-of) short story done, in the same universe.

OMG they submitted *porn*? That's insane. I'd never show the creator of a fandom something rated M or above. XD That's gutsy, I gotta tell.

Is it bad lulzy or just luzly because it's porn? I wonder.
Well, to be fair to them, I did practically dare someone! *facepalm*
:) You're the one who made up the sensitive tendrils.

Hi, btw, I just started devouring your books (currently reading Empire of Ivory) and and I'm in awe and love with every aspect of them.

Thank you so much for writing this series!
omg it's not my fault! I was -- dead at the time! I was on the moon! with steve! /eddieizzard

and yay, I'm happy you're enjoying! :D
Just FYI folk...

Have you gone here:

http://www.furaffinity.net/

Registered, logged in, checked the 'yes I do want to see adult art, yes I am above 18' options here and there, then gone here:

http://www.furaffinity.net/search/

and selected '60 results per page', and, if you want to, select 'sort results by date' (to see the most recent ones first), and then searched for 'Temeraire'.

That will net you the hilarious porny one VERY early on, as well as lots of other cool ones, too!

Anyway, Naomi, was the porny one you were referring to 'glad for the company'?

Also, judging by what else is found in that search, I think someone named their snake after Temeraire! :) :)

What do you think of some of the other pictures in that search?
Also that 'little fat Maximus' picture is ADORABLE!

I admit, I first read that as "pony Temeraire fanart," which lead me to imagine a My Little Pony mod of Temeraire!pony.

Oh, Internets. You make so many things plausible!
lol! Pony-mod!
This reaction reinforces my very high opinion of you as an author, having grown up with Anne McCaffrey and Margaret Weis.

I am glad you're enjoying (and embracing) the attention from your fans! It's an excellent attitude to take. :D
We will get to see all the entries?
Ah! Now that song is stuck in my head! :D This contest makes me wish I were an artist of the picture-making type. I can't wait to see the submissions. Especially the one that inspired the title of this post.
How exciting! So many fun things coming in the near future for you, huh?
I think you've realized that Rule 34 is very real, and you invited upon a part of the fandom to teremaire you didn't think would be so... extent... LOL.
Eee! I'm quite excited about the fanart contest - I've sent one in and I'm working on another, and contemplating a third if I can finish it around packing up to go back to school.
Out of curiosity, are there any scenes that you might want to write a story for? There are just so many options, I find I'm a little overwhelmed by the sheer amount of them, and it's difficult to portray an AU in a single pic without color XD
I really hope it's not dragon/human. Bestiality aside, I just can't imagine how that would not end in messy death.
Lol, they're all sapient and sentient so the beast thing isn't an issue! And as far as major size differences in art goes, the furry fandom is not constrained by the law of physics or the realm of plausibility! ;) ;) ;)

Great title for the manga; certainly eye-catching because now I'm curious! When does it come out?
I came here to be inspired for Temeraire fanarts and am I'm greeted by rule 34. THANKS INTERNETS!
You're weellllccoommmeee! =D
Alright people! Here is the DIRECT LINK to Slate's "Glad for the Company" pic, for folk who can't manage to Register on Furaffinity

VERY VERY VERY NSFW!!!!

I hope this works..

Oh Naomi, this was different than the other porn entry you got, right? If so, which one is your favourite?

NEED IDEA FOR CONTEST. I have been drawing cute space kitties for school and have had no opportunity to think of something awesome with dragons. Poo.

Either I get drunk for inspiration in bad-assery, or I will end up drawing some sickeningly cute version of Temeraire. Shoot, it'll probably be that second one.
First of all, LOL.

Second, I think I'll enter this contest now that I've gotten back into drawing, if I can get myself to draw something more than a boring side-view of a dragon doing absolutely nothing.

Forum?

Hey Naomi!
I just finished Tongue of Serpents yesterday after having read all the series during nearly every waking hour I had in the last 5 days. I've completely fallen in love with the book and the characters (Though I'm not a fan of Caesar) and I was wondering if there was some place out on the vast plains of the internet where fans such as I could gather and mingle.
It would be great to have an official forum for the Temeraire series where fans could get together and discuss anything and everything pertaining to the book and even suggest things that might be of use in future books.

I apologize in advance for any error I might have made in this post since I'm still a bit off after the marathon reading session.

Your die-hard fan,
Spiderbait
There's a discussion forum on Facebook, but there's not much discussion going on: http://www.facebook.com/topic.php?uid=116924901674061&topic=117
OH, FYI for folk that can't register for furaffinity, the place where the porny pic I posted is hosted, in order to see the comments, here's something you all should be pleased to know:

The picture *directly* led to some people saying that they had to immediately go out and buy some of the books of the series! So it is a case of Internet Rule 34 Porn being used FOR GOOD! =D =D

For example, here are some comments from the thread...

"Uh, good show. I really should get on reading those books."

"Have to finish the book ASAP."

"many thanks - I'll have to check it out :p"

"Hmm... I should read up on the latest two books."

"Oh crap, I just realized I missed the release of the newest one. D:"

"I've got to continue to read the books... still stuck on the third one >.=.<"

"WHAT BOOK IS THIS???

Please tell me cause I'd love to purchase and read it !"

"I am not familiar with this series, though sounds interesting."

"Ah, a draconic book series i haven't been exposed to! TO THE BARNS AND NOBLES!! *batman theme*"
not the porny pic that was sent to her... the other one I was talking about. I dont think anyone has seen the one sent to her!

That's a beautiful piece!

Deleted comment

Just try your best and send in anything before the cutoff! I definitely realized some of my own current limitations during the contest, but you just gotta keep rolling with the punches. Good luck!
Hah, I wish I would have known of this earlier!

But knowing me I will draw something anyway. XD

I recently started reading the Temeraire books and I am having trouble stopping myself from physically devouring the books, I'm going through them that fast.
Not sure where else to put this, so I'll just comment here, I made a little fanart, too. It's not colored yet, but I plan to, and I am sure it will be a lot nicer then. (And yes, I know it's too late for the contest, just want to show it. :) )

Can I start with that I'm a fan of Temeraire series and although this message starts out like the rest where everyone says they are the fan, I have one problem............

Your covers for your books have changed 2 possibly 3 times in the UK and now none of mine match. Now some would say why don't you just buy the matching ones, but why should I. Plus that means spending more money :-(. I don't mean to sound grumpy but I'm hoping you don't change them again because that would be annoying.....

As I said I am a fan and I will be buying Tongue Of Serpents tomorrow and I can't wait to read it.....

Stuart Thomas
Alas, I pretty much have no say in the covers, so it is both not my fault but also not under my control! If it's any consolation, I am also frustrated by not having a perfect matched set myself? :)

Hope you enjoy TOS!
When can we expect to see the results of the contest? I have read all your books and loved them.
I had a funny series of events today where I found out an image I had hanging around in my stash for days happened to be related to a book series my friend urged me to try after I explained that I hadn't read printed work of fiction in well over a year.

In short, I have a new mission to read at least one of the Temeraire books before my die. From the sound of things here and from my friend, it'll probably end up becoming some of my favorites.

Thought I should say hello.
Hiya!
