Allow me to begin by saying, “No, I will not give you this domain, nor I will not sell you this domain.” I have owned this domain for many years, and despite many lapses in it’s exterior maintenance, I have not ‘abandoned’ it. I’ve had emails ranging from “I made a site for school and I need this domain” to “I made ice phoenix first so you’re infringing my copyrights” and any number of weird reasons in between… including a simple “give me it.”. I’ve politely declined them all and it would require a very large sum of cash to come my way to part with it.
What is an Ice Phoenix?
In the case of my version of ice phoenix, it’s a fire breathing ice bird. Sometimes I’ve represented it as a pure ice bird with misty frozen breath weapon attacks but most often I use fire breathing. The first time I used the ice phoenix was actually in the ’80s. I thought it would be awesome to make the legendary phoenix into an ice version, and the name followed me for many years. In the ’90s the character became a fanfictional character for the Marvel Universe of comics where it gained a female humanoid form with the powers of the ice bird I loved. I used the name as my alias for over a decade before moving into the Pokemon fandom and becoming Arti Cuno. A fitting move from ice bird to ice bird.
Is Faeore your real name?
Yes, it is my legal first name.
Are you also Arti Cuno?
Yes, if you’re thinking of many. many years ago when I was active in the Pokemon community. I own ArticunoIsland.com and used to write and draw an epic amount of Pokemon related things as well as making many “new” Pokemon which mostly have been lost to time. A few of them were eerily close to some which came into later games.
I’ve had a lot of people pretending to be me in the peak of popularity, so there’s still a possibility you may have ran into one of them.
Are you also Naoko Miamoto/Miaomoto?
This is another name I used for a different fandom, the Harry Potter one. I was active as a moderator on a huge Harry Potty fan forum run by Cinescape. A few of my writing related things carried this name at that time as well.
What happened to all your writing?
I removed my writing from FanFiction.net, the only place I ever officially posted any of my work. I had over 500K words worth of writing posted at the end of my public writing period, all of which has been backed up and stored for safety.
In 2001 I began working on a fantasy novel in my spare time, but due to life being a bitch, I lost a large chunk of it during a freak lightning strike frying my hard drive. I hadn’t been sharing much of it publicly so the only bits that were saved were hidden in a wiki I’d made for world building. I had picked the story back up, rewriting the lost portions and improving the overall plot after a 10 year hiatus from world building. The story will not likely be made public until finished if I decide to release it in either published or freebie form.
On June 2019, I decided to take a break from my long stagnant novel. It was almost done but I wasn’t quite feeling it yet. Needing to do massive revisions over the 225 pages for a slight tightening of the story and a fix or two in the middle for something I had changed was overwhelming. So I fell into the trap of working on my world building in another part of the continent of the same world and built up the kingdoms and their people and along the way I started writing again… another story unrelated tot he first. Ugh. Half way through (170 or so pages worth of writing) I realized where I started telling the story didn’t make sense with a key thing happening in the past that was never well explained. It was more than a simple chapter could ever tell so I went back farther and began where I should have started the first time.
What happened to Faeore.DeviantArt.com and other sites you posted art to?
I had decided to straight pull all my art from online for a while. A few years ago I revived my deviant account and began to post on Instagram. I typically don’t maintain other sites with art outside those two and this website.
