You May Not Believe It, But This Page Is Currently Under Construction!

Seriously, when was the last time you heard that being said?

Ask me anything!

Q: Why is this site called Lendral.com?
A: Lendral is the title for my first story project, which has been in the works since 1999.

Q: Wow, that long, huh? So, what, are you just lazy?
A: Not quite! It's just that Lendral is a very big deal to me, and I wanted to do it justice, so I've needed time to practice and get better at general storytelling/writing/character + plot development/etc. That's where all of the rest of these projects have come into play.

Q: When do you think Lendral will be done?
A: It was supposed to start early 2014, but then Torenne happened. At this point, Lendral is expected to begin after I'm done with Torenne. Maybe by 2015?

Q: Really? How long are you expecting Torenne to be?
A: We'll just have to see.

Q: So what's with all the little black thingies all over the place?
A: Those are the ESBs, or Evil Shadow Bunnies. They're also as old as Lendral, but you'll see them pop up in all sorts of places due to the nature of their ... uh.. being?

Q: I don't get it.
A: One day, perhaps you will.

Q: This site/Abian's site/House's site looks like shite.
A: That's not really a question.

Q: The question is, did you make them yourself?
A: Yes, I did! A lot of it was self-taught and reading through W3Schools Online Web Tutorials. They are a very helpful site, with straight-forward lessons and examples that allowed me to toy around with the script in order to establish what I wanted to do with it!

Q: Well, they obviously weren't enough to keep your websites from looking like shite.
A: That's also not a question.

Q: So, is this really a hub to all of your stuff online?
A: Well... There's also the really older stuff, like The Sketchbook, This Old Thing, Don't Mind Me, and also my Livejournal, Deviant Art, FurAffinity, and Elfwood.

Q: Is that really all of it?
A: Eh.. all that I can remember, yeah. There's one or two 'doof' projects that I'm keeping quiet, but mostly because no one else would understand them.

Q: What's a doof project?
A: It's personal.

Q: Wow. You really don't make stalking you hard, do you?
A: Nope!

Q: Speaking of, can I follow you on Facebook?
A: Nope!

Q: Hey, I found you on Facebook anyway! Accept my friend request?
A: Nope!

Q: But you seem cool and I want to talk to you!
A: Email me!

Q: What are these Affiliateds?
A: Friends and family. Chances are, everyone linked to in my Affiliated section has even appeared in House.

Q: Could I become your Affiliated?
A: Only if you become my friend. Appearing in House is completely optional.

Q: Why do you always write "house" in that different color, anyway?
A: It's a reference to a book that I enjoy, House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski.
