Artist | Hobbyist | Varied
United States
I have a habit of speaking very formally. I am a goofball in real life who focuses very seriously on his academics.

I am not a very true artist, just one who likes to see pictures. I have an inappreciable ability to draw, and I have very little interest in developing my skills in the field of visual art. If anything, I am much more into the fields of theatre acting and singing, for they are my main artistic passions. I am both enthralled and intimidated by the community here since it so large and variable. I have not yet found my niche in any community, but chances are that I have stepped in at least a small part of most.

I am interested in the business of voice acting, so, if you need an amateur voice actor, I would be glad to be of service. I am your average kind of nonprofessional with a pop guard and studio microphone who records in a basement; not a recording studio, but I am very diligent. I am willing to provide contact information to anyone considering me for a voice actor role or tryout. Additionally, I am interested in doing audio readings for anyone (be it CreepyPasta, poetry, prose, or whatever it is).

As you may see in my gallery, I do write from time to time. I hope you enjoy what I have to offer in the literature field. I have several poems, prosaic poems, and prose works. My first (and currently only) DD was a literature submission. I've written a dark fan-ficiton for My Little Pony, but I don't consider myself a very hardcore writer, or Brony, for that matter. I upload essays I've done for school, and I very rarely feel inspired to write. However, when I am, I am usually very satisfied with my work, and I'm sure something I've done will speak to you.

Photography is the other thing I do. Mostly, it's sky and landscape pictures; whatever I happen to catch happening above me I tend to take a picture of if I think it's nice.

I do llamas for llamas, but I neither do WATCH for WATCH nor FAVE for FAVE. I reserve these to my personal tastes.

I am extremely busy with my schoolwork and rarely am on for long periods of time. I am also willing to proofread for anyone who can afford to wait until I acquire the time to get to proofreading the work. I find it is an enjoyable and helpful way to employ my skill in orthography, diction, and grammar when my creativity is devoted to non-writing ends. Anyone interested should feel free to send me a note, expressing his or her interest, on this site, and we can become acquainted and discuss the business.

I use Dogecoin.

Hello, everybody! 

I'll begin with my art news.  The school year's winding down for me now, and there's much less stress on me now.  You can expect to see me upload some works over the course of the next few weeks.  I'll get my school assignments back, and I'll share those writings with you.

Lots of stuff going on, friends.  I'll be attending a wedding today and I'll have several events to attend over the next few days.  I'm busy as always, but things have still lightened up a bit.

Allow me to present you all with this announcement video.  If you're a follower of my audio reading YouTube channel, you'll be interested in seeing this video.  I'm opening to various viewer input activities, and I'd like anybody who may want to participate to do so.  Check out the video below.


And an interesting development!  As some of you may remember, :iconfawfuls-minion: permitted me to do an audio reading of the CreepyPasta he wrote himself a year ago.  Just yesterday he uploaded his own reading, and it's an awesome interpretation!  I'm still happy with the honor of having gained his permission to do the reading, but there's no interpretation like one that comes from the author himself.  I suggest, if you're interested, that you see it.  Below is the link to the video of the first part.  Below it, I'll include the video for my interpretation.  Happy listening, friends!

This story is a Sad/Slice of Life from FIMFiction.net and was written by Enduring Man-Child.

The author's description:

Pinkie Pie is on her way to visit Fluttershy on her day off from Sugarcube Corner when she hears groans of horror from a cloud above her.  Rainbow Dash is having a terrible nightmare.  Can Pinkie help her?

This story is centered on Rainbow Dash and Pinkie Pie.  There's little in here that could be cause for warning, but it does seriously address the insane Pinkie phenomenon in the fandom somewhat, and some associated images are evoked, albeit briefly.  This one's meant to be more lighthearted.

1) Write down every letter in your name.
2) Write down a song that pops into your head beginning with each letter.
3) Count the number of letters and TAG that many people  (I skip dat.)

I have been tagged by the chronic stone-smacking, sword-wielding, Brony sir :icontemplar127:

Rules:
1. You must post the rules.
2. Each person must say 5 things about themselves in their journal.
3. Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post and create five new questions for the people you tag to answer.  (Not tagging)
4. You have to choose 10 people to tag and post their icons on your journal.  (Why are you even reading these rules?)
5. No tag backs.  (Noted.)
6. No stuff in the tagging section about "You're tagged if you're reading this". You legitimately have to tag 10 people.

Five things about myself...
1.  I often find myself looking up the definitions to simple words I commonly use just because I want to make sure I have the definitions straight.
2.  I don't LARP, but I think it would be fun to do it sometime.
3.  I'm currently concerned with writing a 2- to 3-minute long original composition for at least four different parts.  It doesn't have to be a classical chorale writing, but it has to make musical sense.  I intend to write part for myself as a bass singer, and I intend to feature a cellist, but beyond this I have no ideas for instrumentations because I know very few trustworthy musicians who could possibly be available to play this.  It is mandatory that this composition be rehearsed and played live for my teacher.  I'm pretty consternated right now.
4.  I've contemplated writing a sequel to the MLP fanfic I wrote.  I'm not really drafting it because I'm scared of what might happen if I elaborate upon a story whose reception I'm not sure I can gauge well, but I still keep getting interesting ideas for it.
5.  I have only ever lost one flashdrive.

Questions from :icontemplar127:
1. What made you become a brony?
I was not forced, but I was intrigued by what few glimpses I saw of the community on here and in some of the people I knew at school.  I think Bronies, collectively, can be very awesome beyond just being a novelty.  I had a funny feeling Bronies would accept somebody like me.

2. Favorite video game?
That's a tough one.  How does one pick?  I could go by numbers:  I've played Sly Cooper 2:  Band of Thieves the most times out of any game I've played, but I probably wouldn't play that game ever again except maybe for the dialogue now. 
I'd probably say that Kingdom Hearts is the most crucial game I've ever played.  It's what got me into the Final Fantasy series, which was what first brought me into a related roleplaying community.  That community introduced me to anime, and anime introduced me to people who introduced me to dA and CreepyPastas.
I loved the soundtrack for The Shadow of the Colossus and enjoyed bits of the gameplay and animations, but the plot was horrible.
On the other hand, I loved the plot and soundtrack to Final Fantasy IV but especially hated the gameplay there.
The Sly Cooper series has held me as a loyal fan, but the music is not very special, and the latest installment was unsettlingly different and lost me.  Dare I say it was flat?
So many other games I love too much.  I fear I can't concisely or definitively answer that question.

3. How's Season 5 of MLP FIM treating you?
I actually haven't been actively watching it but, despite all the fanart and fanfics I've noticed apparently being released in reactions to it and the new characters, I don't think the newest episodes have been spoiled for me yet.  I'm still halfway through season four yet and probably won't continue watching until school's over.

4. What do you think Starlight Glimmer is plotting?
Is that the orchid-colored mare?  I haven't got any idea, considering I've stayed away from anything that might tell me too much about her character before I watch the episodes involving her.

5. Twilight Sparkle, Sunset Shimmer, or Starlight Glimmer?
I guess I don't have a fair choice, not knowing one of the candidates.  If I must choose between the former two based on what I've seen, I'd end up choosing Twilight because I relate very well to her sometimes.  Obviously, though, that's not really a fair judgement, considering how Sunset Shimmer is not a very deeply developed character from what I've seen of her so far.  It makes me wonder if she shows up in subsequent episodes I haven't yet gotten to.

I hope I didn't surprise anyone unpleasantly with these responses.

These stories are a Dark/Sad/Tragic prequel and sequel from FIMFiction.net and were written by ObeySaturnGod.

The author's description for the prequel,

Twilight is ecstatic with her new journal and the prospect of writing her life's adventures, eager to begin.  However, one unfortunate event leads to a spiral of terrible luck and decisions, culminating in a horrific tragedy.

Viewer discretion is advised on account of certain levels of gore, disturbing implications, and suicidal themes.  The story is centered on Twilight, but a whole host of characters get involved in the sequel.

You can find a playlist on my YouTube profile, but I'll include all of the videos as embedded links.
