Sheltering-in-Place, Day 9

Image of a woman on a path holding a cupcake and a sword. The text reads, I didn’t really want to be myself today. So, I wasn’t, really. I play Dungeons & Dragons with friends. One of my characters is a heavily armored paladin with few fears. I decided to let her help me. I fought mighty battles.  I ended up with some yummy cupcakes. I don’t like to cook.

The text on the image reads

I didn’t really want to be myself today. So, I wasn’t, really. I play Dungeons & Dragons with friends. One of my characters is a heavily armored paladin with few fears. I decided to let her help me.
I fought mighty battles. 
I ended up with some yummy cupcakes.
I don’t like to cook. 

 

I tried to do too many things today. Okay, I did too many things today. I didn't mean to do so many things, but I was on a role... I mean, roll. 

Calamity Fink (Mity) is my recently retired character from a long-running D&D game I play with friends about once a month. It's fun. It's like therapy but both harder and better depending on the game and what our Game Master throws at us. It's already helped me through a lot. We haven't had a chance to play since all this sheltering business started. We're trying to figure out those details. 

In the meantime, we still have each other, our characters, our minis, our dice, and that's pretty good. In addition to little Mity tagging along in my brain today, I also had my D&D buddies and the memories of our games and silliness to keep me motivated. And it worked! It worked a little too well! I kept doing things until it was already 2 hours past my usual drawing start time. Oops!

This means I'll be spell-checking this in the morning.

The skirt is an old favorite of mine. It was a gift from a friend. It's a metallic-looking, almost shimmery, pleated fabric that makes me feel like I'm wearing armor. The green and pink were inspired by Mity's favorite colors. The bracelet was just for me because it makes me feel strong. The necklace is super D&D specific! It was a gift from another player to represent, in real life, a gift that her character gave to mine.

So, I got to bake and cook with friends today. We just happened to be in our own separate homes doing our own separate things.
