New feature: Fan cast of the Steel Empires!

A few weeks ago, I sorted the main characters of the Steel Empires series into their Hogwarts houses. But that was just the start of the new features I’m adding to the Worldbuilding section of my website!

Most fantasy fans in the world can immediately answer the question, “What house are you?” and I’m certainly no exception. As a fun characterization exercise,Continue reading “The Sorting Hat comes to Limani!”

Happy half-price candy day! I had to go into the office yesterday, so my costume was really simple. What did you dress up as?

September Wrap-Up & October Goals

What’s going on at Casa Siamese this month? My hair is partially purple, I still have no tattoos, and there’s a half-built LEGO set on my dining room table. I’m in the midst of multiple projects, I’m planning multiple trips, and I just ordered a ton of Girl Scout cookies. So, no complaints here. Let’sContinue reading “September Wrap-Up & October Goals”
