My gallery is a weird hodgepodge characters and fandoms, from surly plantdragons to odd half-insectoid monstrosities. When it comes to fanart, I tend to stray from topic to topic in hopes that I don't bore people with random obsessions.

I hope to keep improving so don't be surprised if I do weird experiments with textures and colors and stuff like that in Photoshop.

One of the downsides of keeping the same account you've had since early high school without ever deleting, switching, or otherwise changing accounts (partly because I lucked out and thought of a really cool username at a young age) is when you become aware that there are still some really embarrassing things you made way back in your hormone-filled teenager years that are still up and about in some of the search terms.

In today's case, I noticed that I still had the dreaded "fanfiction" from ten years ago lurking about my gallery.

So today, I decided enough was enough and stored "Veil of Darkness", "Concealment of Evil", and "The Realms of Chaos".

They were good when I wrote them, and quite honestly I appreciate that I had a space to share my writings without too much judgement from a group of people the same age as me because they did end up becoming a stepping stone for development as an artist, but at the same time, they represent a younger, less mature me and I don't like having them attached to an account I still use regularly in fear that people might ask questions about them, leave critiques on them when I know they're trash, or, heaven forbid, think my quality of writing is still as good as that.

I still keep a lot of pieces I did when I was younger just to show a natural progression in my gallery anyways, so it's not like I'm clearing all of the gross, poorly drawn stuff away.

Just the fanfiction that had Ripto from Spyro 2 marry my dragon OC.  

If anyone still wants to read the stuff I just stored, it's still up in its entirety on Fanfiction.net. I'm not linking it; it should be easy enough to find. I don't hang with the FF.net using crowd anymore; I won't feel any secondhand embarrassment if you choose to read them.

...

...not too much, anyway. Pfft.


--------

In terms of regular life things, things are slowly getting back to normal and I'm not feeling super stressed out like I was. I broke the floodgates of the art block so that's a plus.

I just want to thank the people I ended up being a big whiny baby to on Skype and other places for putting up with me.

What can I say, my audience knows what I like, and it's lots of cake. (and ironically, my birthday cake ended up with the same color frosting as the DA cake icon)

Thank you so much! =) :hug:
