LB's Welcome Post!
Hello! Welcome to the writing site and blog of LB Lee, AKA Loony-Brain. You might know us from Etsy

You can find all our posted stories here

Some folks spoke in favor of me raising my prices, so thus it shall be! From here on out, I'll be selling stories for five cents a word, and will max out at 3000 words a month, whichever favors me more.
Thank you very much, guys. You are the BEST fans.Tags: work

Livestream, and a Patreon announcement!
Okay guys, two things. One, the usual Livestream announcement: as usual, I'll be doing a livestream today at 3PM, Eastern Time here
. I'll be working on Phineas Gage pages, and continuing until my shoulder seizes up.
And second, there are some Patreon changes in store! Namely: I'm capping the amount of words I write a month.
Patreon has been a huge boon for me, work-wise. When I started it up at the very end of 2014, I had no idea whether it would work or replace my old writeathon system. I certainly had no idea how much money it would be making, so I stuck to my old rule of three cents a word. I am thrilled to say that you fine folks who have supported me through Patreon have exceeded my expectations.
Now, however, I'm having to acknowledge my limits as a human being. Not only am I posting 3000 words worth of stories a month, I'm also uploading roughly four drawings, four pages of comics a month, plus my postcards for my big Patreon spenders, plus handling Etsy orders and my con schedule and a weekly livestream. I just physically can not do much more than I'm doing.
So I think it's time to accept that this is my maximum capacity, at least for now. Sorry guys! 3000 words will be the max I post from here on out.
With that in mind, I'm also considering raising my prices once again. At five cents a word, I would be making a professional rate. Like before, all stories previously priced would keep their old prices; this would be just for future stories. I'm not in a rush over this, but it's definitely my endgame goal.
What do you guys think? How does this sound?Tags: livestream
Princess and Monster: Given Values of Success
Given Values of SuccessSeries
: the Princess and Her MonsterWord Count
: Tobiach spends a lot of time desperately trying to convince himself that he and his plans are NOT failures, and then something he doesn't plan goes surprisingly right. Notes:
This story was prompted by silvercat17
, and sponsored by the Patreon crew! It takes place years after the events of Broken Cup
and Against the Night
This isn't a failure, Tobiach tells himself as he flees his home. It's not
. This is merely an unorthodox form of success, proof positive that the Name works in mysterious ways. Forget his father's disappointment, his mother's grief. He has his inheritance: his uncle's letter of reference, his prayer shawl, his books, and that's all that should matter.( Read more...Collapse )

Anita Blake, Vampire Humper
Me and Biff went to the library and got two books.
He got the Nazi Hunters
, by Andrew Nagorski, which is a non-fiction book about the folks who tracked Nazis after World War II and tried to bring them to justice (usually with court proceedings), despite huge resistance. It's been really interesting so far. Biff's interested in it because he likes nonfiction and likes learning about stuff like this; I'm most interested in the psychological nature of evil.
And me, I got Dead Ice
, by Laurel K. Hamilton. >:D It's something like book #30 in the Anita Blake series, none of which I have ever read, and I have decided, for the good of us all, that I should use my queer little poly self to read this book and mock the shit out of it.
THE TIME HAS COME!

A note on the May poll...
Heads up regarding the poll guys, there was a second place tie between Broken Cup
and Perfection's Birthday
. Given Values of Success
won the top sport, and there wasn't enough money left over for Perfections' Birthday, so I've chosen to post Broken Cup and Passing Phases instead (which was the third place winner).
I hope this is okay with everyone!Tags: work
Princess and Monster: Broken Cup
: the Princess and Her MonsterWord Count
: After a transformation, Gad deals with his new body.Notes
: Wow, it's been a long time since I posted a proper PaM story! It was prompted by kaylin881
and sponsored by the Patreon crew! Like other Judith and Gad stories, this story is named after a Jason Webley song
, which is my PaM music. Also, if you're curious, the fortress's layout is here
; it's a rough square, with the courtyard at the center. I also have an old drawing of Gad
before and after his change. More notes at the bottom.
At first, Gad hardly noticed his transformation. He didn't want to notice. Too much had happened, too quickly, and all he wanted was to focus on the task at hand—removing the dead from the fortress.( Read more...Collapse )Tags: the princess and her monster

Battle the Universe: Hamster Man
: Battle The UniverseWord Count:
Chester "Cheeks" Maccio has come from the boonies to see what superheroing is like, and he and Lorry end in a firefight. Notes:
This story takes place after the Gynecologist
. It was prompted by contrapangloss, and sponsored by silvercat17
! Thanks, guys! More notes at the bottom.
“Okay, everyone,” Martial Law said, “this is Chester 'Cheeks' Maccio. He came all the way from Vermont to see the big leagues, so let's give him a big city welcome!”
Cheeks waved. “Hello!”
Even by Law and Justice standards, he stood out a little. His cheeks were round and bulgy, and his skin seemed intended for a man much larger than him, which made him look oddly deflated. He wore a loose belted garment that looked somewhere between a muumuu and a jumpsuit.
“I'm just a small-fish do-gooder at home,” Cheeks continued. “I'm really excited to be here. In fact, as a small token of my appreciation...” he opened his mouth, reached in, and removed a large shrink-wrapped cheese from his cheek, “I brought snacks!”“That is disgusting,”
Lucinda thought, in the back of Lorry's head.“That is so cool,”
Lorry agreed with them both.( Read more...Collapse )Tags: battle the universe

Boundless science comics anthology!
Hhey guys? Do you like comics? Do you like SCIENCE? This Kickstarter is for you! Us and E. J. Barnes have been working on a comic about Phineas Gage; you can see one of the pages in the Kickstarter video (it’s the eyebally one). Jordan, Olivia, Heide, and Neil will also be helping us with our Out of Mind kickstarter later on, it looks like, so I feel great personally vouching for them.
Also uh. The more the Kickstarter makes, the more I get paid. Just so you know. But if you ever wanted a book of awesome science comics, this is the project for you!
