A Rose Grows on Pollux
Story Log and Musings of Crystal Rose of Pollux
rose_of_pollux
So, I had a kick of nostalgia a few days ago when I heard that Dan Green, whom I had grown up hearing on Pokémon and Yu-Gi-Oh DM, is working on an original audio drama series that he himself has written and done a few illustrations for. He's managed to bring together a lot of the 4kids VAs for this project--Eric Stuart is co-producer, in fact, and was the one teasing it (though Veronica Taylor was teasing it, too, in the last couple of days leading up to the real) and eventually revealed it.

It's called Crossing the G.O.D.S., and I have absolutely no clue what it's about, but I'm pretty sure I'm going to be following it, if for no other reason that I am eager to hear everyone's voices again, and I am also eager to see the kind of characters and stories that Dan has in store--he's brought to life so many memorable characters--Entei, Yugi, Atem, etc--and now he's doing that for his own characters.

And it's also reconfirmed my decision to take on NaNoWriMo this year and complete the first Lionheart and Kid book--though I'd already determined that after Robert Vaughn's passing last year; he basically inspired the thing, so I really hope it turns out well--something worthy of being dedicated to him. :)
