Alright, history time.
I came to this site a long time ago, and envied all the cool art that was on this webpage. At that point in my artistic career, by skills as a traditional artists were... lackluster. To say the least. My character Night Fury ( who I owe some of my DA title too ) was still under heavy development, I was going through the over-powered nuke stage of my Sonic fan side, I was a complete geek, I was a mess. I won't go into the details at the moment, but I may do retrospectives in the future.
So, I asked my parents to allow me access to the site, and after much complications, I was able to make this account.
I started out rough, as we all do, but then I established myself, first in a small group of RPers, who I am still in contact with today. Well... Some of them, anyways.
Eventually, my skills as a commenter, artist, roleplayer and entity on this website began to rise up out of the furry primordial soup and evolve into something greater, something that would change my skills and perception.
I got in touch with my childhood heroes.
As my tastes began to change and my fandom collection grew, I began to wonder, around... Let's say late 2012, " Hey, I wonder if there's a Bionicle fandom on here... " And, sure enough, I looked. I saw loyal, dedicated MOC-ers and artists alike, all coexisting in some form of community on this site. I watched people with brilliant and unique flavors of artistic skill, people like Taibu-Kettu, Rahkshi-Miraka or KrytenMarkGen-0. I built respect for these people and admired them in many ways. I repected them like a child would repsect an elder, with the upmost care and longing to please said person in any way possible, either by respecting their wishes or doing something for them. Eventually...
I made friends.
Well, specifically, a friend. Not just any friend, either. I made friends with a deviant named Taranuka. He commented on my page in late 2012 in September... Or maybe I commented on his? I can't remember. But, anyways, we started RPing in Notes, and from that day forwards we were joined at the hip. And that just made DA a whole lot more special for me.
Well, that about does it for me! If you read this far down, then thanks for reading! I don't really know what else to say.... So.... Have a cookie.
