I'm a writer, obviously. I'm enamored by the literature art. Not the best and still trying to improve. I go on DA to get some pointers from fellow artists of the genre; I'm a firm believer that everyone has something to offer that can help me on my journey to be 'better'.

I'm a fanfic writer. A lot of my fiction involve "D.i.D." or something of the sort so if that's not something you like, please avert your eyes. If you do like it, then enjoy!

Once in a while I will also post pictures that I commissioned and use them for 'cover art' for my work. I have permission from the artists to repost their work and I take great lengths to credit them! They deserve the credit of course!

Also, for every favorite and every comment, I try to respond one way or the other. I believe in gratitude so I try and get on top of that. Luckily I don't have that much traffic in my page so I can actually do all of that!

I think that's about it... so with that said, talk to some of you soon, I suppose.

I finally had a day to play #FFXV; have to say, I like it. First game that pulled me out of Skyrim for a while. But, I have been doing some writing today too and working on some reference gathering for commissions. Haven't forgotten my DA crowd! But now, time for a new week and BUSY week! 
Downloaded FFXV to my PS4 and... the journey has yet to begin. damn busy schedule. Definitely, will be playing this weekend! Between life, writing, hobbies, and gaming... lol. Sleep will have to suffer again. NIGHT! 
Hello everyone! I'm still here. Been a bit quiet as of late with how busy life has been... how busy LIFE still is. But there are some things! :D Hope everyone had a great thanksgiving and may the days of the holiday month be merry! 
I have some pretty interesting DA comments that I will respond to as soon as I (you probably guessed it) get some sleep! And... I think new written (non-DiD) content will be uploaded! I think someone can guess what it is! Later folks! :D 
My body finally caught up with my double shifts and lack of sleep. Caught a bad bug and working one shift the last two days has been hell... getting better now though as I have slept more than I have been the last few months. I have some catching up to do with DA. Here's to hoping I do. And damn, do I have a ton of figures to review... lol. 
My Commission: Jin_x_Ahkari by ronin-gh0st

I'm not much to beat a dead horse, but since it is quite recent, and it also appalled me, I suppose I'll bring it up for the sake of insight. Basically, someone just tried to 'call me out' on a commission I had. I do want to say that me bringing up this subject does not mean I condone anyone (if it gets that way) to harass or even acknowledge the individual who evoked this topic. I am looking for opinions, that's it. 

Okay, so we all know that I COMMISSION a LOT of artwork from a handful of different artists. The nature of my commissions is DiD/fetish related, fandom, or my beloved fanfic/crossover (one that is not getting as much love with how much time I Don't have) Frozen Skyrim. Needless to say, I have experience in doing this kind of thing; gathering references, conveying what I have in mind through words and said references, and I have gained some good rapport with some of these artist/s (some more than others). I post a lot of pictures in my gallery that is commissioned work and I take GREAT lengths to make sure I give a shout out to the artist/s. 

With all that said, I mentioned that someone 'called me out' on a certain commission I had. Astonishingly, it wasn't the whole "lack of respect for women" or "that is sick, why would you pay for that", which I haven't gotten thankfully and I don't want to ever get. The nature of the comment was someone trying to say that I didn't ask permission from the artist who drew one of the reference for my commission. That I didn't ask permission or yadda, yadda, yadda. Let me explore that a bit. I use a LOT of references. From emotions on faces, poses, accessories, clothing, special effects, etc. So.... Do I need to contact Banana Republic because I thought one of their clothing inspired me to pay for a drawing? Seek out every artist and message them about the inspiration? To me, I feel as if inspiration is kind of an homage... a shout out of some sort. If any of my literature inspired someone to write their take on it, I wouldn't be at all offended. I'd say it was nice to have inspired someone.

The funny thing is, I decided to message the artist that inspired me to pay for this certain commission after fellow deviant 'called me out'(and this deviant failed to realize I used MANY other references to complete said picture) just to say I used his art as a reference and inspiration and apologized. Said artist merely said 'don't say sorry, and I used a real photo as a reference for that picture'. Sooooo... should someone call out this artist and say that s/he should have contacted the person responsible for that photograph? 

Needless to say, after showing this person the artist's response, there was nothing else after that. And I don't mind. I just think it was kind of odd and intrusive that this person is patrolling and speaking out for someone else when s/he should spend that time working his/her contribution to DA. Copied, traced, reposted(with or without editing) without a shout out to the artist, that is something that should be dealt with but a reference? The person may have the right intention, but it turned out to be, as I feel wasted energy and effort. So, what do you guys think?

I got a question: Have you ever done a Disney DiD poll before?

I know GoGo Tomago has been in a Poll before, but no, I have not done a full on Disney DiD poll just yet.

I got good news and I got bad news. The good news is I found some Yoruichi bondage pics that I think you can use. Bad news is there is only one Tia Harribel pic and it she shares the spotlight with Yoruichi. Do you want me to send them to you?
