The [ profile] snarryldws week one drabbles are up! Plz to be voting! Guess which one is mine and you'll get a cookie.

Oh, and I have already reached my first Snarry-a-thon fest freak-out, which is actually a very good sign. I must have at least three, you see, and the earlier they happen, the more likely I am to have a breakthrough in decent time to actually finish the thing.

Of course, my mother is interfering somewhat by demanding that I learn 3D modelling right this second, because she has dreams of setting up a cottage industry making videogames. An unusual family business, but My Bloke is an indie developer and programming student and Her Bloke is an experienced leet programmer. She says she'll do publicity. What she actually means is she'll be boss.

In this game-production dynamic, as according to them I am the only one with any artistic talent at all (oh dear), am obliged to be the chief game arteeste. I am scared. Especially since this will put me on the wrong side of the programmer/artist divide AND the artist/manager divide... and I'm already on the wrong side of the mother/daughter one. Also, mum has no more than girlfriend-knowledge1 of the areas at hand and will therefore probably be the kind of boss that demands things only achievable by magic.

That said, I can't get any other bloody job, and working on a game development team is a major step in the right direction. So... woo!

Any 3D modellers out there got any tips?

1. Is there a word for that magical second-hand knowledge of your partner's job/hobby, the stuff that makes you appear diverse and interesting at parties?
