Hello all, it's been a long long while since I last checked here. I didn't expect much activity, but I see that there are still people leaving kind comments and supporting my artwork! I'd like to say a hearty thank-you to everyone for still being here after all this time.
I was just thinking about my time in this fandom and everything that's happened the past few years - Derpygate, Twilight's wings drama, the famous BronyCon fire... I could go on. I've made some amazing friends and improved my art skills 10x over. But most importantly, I've grown a lot as a person.
Before I joined the MLP fandom, I was an angsty teen trying too hard to be "scene goth" and failing miserably. I just ended up being aloof and lonely, and I sort of ended up cornered. I was too afraid to step out of my bubble and let a little bit of my personality show because I thought everyone would judge me. It sounds corny, but entering this lively and colorful community helped me break that unhealthy persona. I allowed myself to be happy without worrying about other people, and it was life changing.
I'm still incredibly thankful for everything this community has done for me, and I'm glad it's still going strong. Unfortunately I haven't been keeping up with the show... I think I only saw a few eps of season 5. It's not that I don't like the show anymore or the fandom - I've just sort of moved on from it. I'll still be keeping tabs on what happens in those characters' lives (I heard Cadence and SA had a little filly) though I won't be too invested in it. I have plenty of other shows to keep me occupied/obsessed
So I'd like to say farewell to this fandom, with a special thanks to ROBCakeran53
and the crew for the MLD visual novel opportunity, my commissioners for their generous support, and my watchers for their kind words and advice. I hope you continue to treat others well and keep creating beautiful content!
On that note, I'll still be on dA:
is my main account where I'm much more active, so if you like furry stuff and fanart, you can head over there. I'll keep this account open, for now at least, but I probably won't be posting anything else.
