*** If you’re having a hard time reaching me through the forms, please send me an email! Every now and then the form breaks and sends your message away into the internet void instead of into my inbox and I don’t receive it. If this has happened to you I’m really sorry, I’m a better artist than web designer -_- But email is pretty reliable!  ***
