The creator of this work is a mystery. Much like the shadowy author responsible for declaring it the 13th and final winner of Lemony Snicket’s #ATWQFanArt contest, the artist responsible for tekcinS dna noskraM has disappeared just as they were about to be publicly identified. 
Is this your work? Do you know who it belongs to? Will you contact us here? Is there some sort of conspiracy afoot? Why has tumblr wiped the original post from this search? How is it we saved an image of the art, but kept no record of the artist? Is that any of your business? These are all the wrong questions.
Our hope is that this post is reblogged until the winner is found and united with their prizes, because prizes don’t enjoy waiting around on the desks of publishing interns who aren’t allowed to go home until all the prizes for Mr. Snicket’s contest have been shipped. Oh mysterious artist responsible for tekcinS dna noskraM, won’t you show yourself so your prizes no longer have to listen to the publishing intern complain about not being able to go home?

I'm in college and I'm afraid of my future when I have to be a real adult! Any advice?

Get scared later.  The future is like a grand piano falling from the sky—there’s no use wondering what it looks like until it’s right over you.

My library's copy of When Did You See Her Last? is missing in action. Should I go looking for it or wait patiently for the miscreant who has it overdue to return it?

What kind of “action” do you think it is missing in?  This might help you figure out if the individual involved is indeed a miscreant, or something worse and/or better.

Anonymous asked:
How do I stop myself from procrastinating?

Find more engaging tasks to do.  No one procrastinates doing something they want to do, only something they want to have done.

Mr. Snicket, I am in graduate school for an English degree. Will it ever be worth it? Would it be agreeable if I lit homework assignments on fire to deal with my workload? Please send help soon as I am drowning in a mountain of papers.

The study of literature is nothing but a mountain of papers.  If do not think it is worth it now, it is unlikely you’ll find it worthwhile later—-it is like a medical student tiring of cadavers.  Best of luck in your alternate career as an arsonist, although be warned: I’ve met quite a few in my line of work and all of them, similarly, wonder if it was worth it.

Is it possible that all of my professors were members of a secret society dedicated to the prevention of free thought? Or is that what they want me to think? I'm very concerned, Mr. Snicket.

Anything is possible, but if you have considered this narrative, among many other ones, then their secret society has clearly failed.
