Good luck to everyone! Can't wait to see what you come up with <3




ok uhh someone suggested this and i think its a really good idea so i will be sharing some other great musicians that provide a great alternative to continuing to listen to and support renard queenston/lapfox trax who is an abuser and rapist




wolfgun - my personal favorite! he has beautifully uplifting songs with powerful lyrics. they can be very relatable
rchetype - hasnt updated in about a year, but still good electronic fun
casey lalonde - a very "feel good" kind of artist. very fun to listen to!
fevrier - they havent really updated in awhile, but their sound and style has a wonderfully enigmatic and esoteric feel to it
fox amoore - one of the most famous furry musicians, has very full and saturated instrumental work
levin goes lightly - neo 80s rock, my personal favorite album is Neo Romantic
eraserfase - very fun analog hip hop funk blends
daniel knox - another personal fave. word of warning, some lyrics can be very grim, but the combo of dark words and upbeat tunes is great
loone - if youre looking for queer music this is for you! the artist is a nb transfemme person who specializes in experimental backwoods flavors
fox stevenson - fun electronic beats! very upbeat and energetic




ill also link my bandcamp here, because i am nearly constantly scouring the website and adding new music to my collection:
bandcamp.com/VCR-WOLFE
bandcamp.com/VCR-WOLFE
bandcamp.com/VCR-WOLFE




if you have any music suggestions feel free to leave them in the comments too! sharing music is such a lovely thing to do

Crispity-chocolatey Jesus, 1 million pageviews? When did that happen? I literally took a nap and woke up with the big 1 mil sitting there on my page. Woooow, you guys really know how to make a lady feel special. X3 Anyhoo, this calls for super secret bonus art! (Just for you guys. Cuz I like ya a lot ;))

Doodles July 25 2015 by Lopoddity More stuff with Zipperflash, Bruce, and Stormy. Shown: Human Zips and Stormy (they are surfers in the humanverse), ponyville not being big enough for Bruce and Zip's combined stupid eyebrows, a what-if-Bruce-was-magically-turned-into-a-pegasus-for-a-day, Zips catching Stormy in the locker room showers (be still his fanboy heart), and Zips annoying the piss out of Bruce



Fishcake by Lopoddity Concept art for a Bruce/Cupcake daughter, Fishcake. Fishcake is canon in the same alternate storyverse in which Pan and Bruce have a son, Mako (y'know, this guy: Mako by Lopoddity). I call it the Makoverse. Pandora abandons Bruce and Mako when Mako is very young, so Cupcake steps up to raise him, and Bruce and Cupcake end up falling in love. So they marry and make Fishcake. She's a barrel of fun, can't you tell? Shown: Fishcake tellin' it like it is to her dumb broody older brother Mako, Fishcake somehow meeting her extradimensional half-sister, Wave Rider (and bonding over how big a dork dad Bruce is), and Daddy Bruce with his tiny wittle Fishie babbu, Fishcake palette test + cutie mark design concept


Panny by Lopoddity My first ever concept art for Pandora. Was trying to figure out her body shape and whatnot

You 'n Me by Lopoddity I've posted this before, and I'll post it again. Adult Human Oddball and Snickerdoodle. They're besties and do a lot of magical science stuff together...kind of like chaos mythbusters. They, uh...blow a lot of stuff up. Odd is shown wearing his momma Cupcake's bow still

Sardonyx by LopoddityI fell in love with Sardonyx after watching Steven Bomb 3, but ehhhhh...sometimes i just get bored with a drawing and leave it.


Gladostash by Lopoddity A lot of you all have said you miss my paintings, which is quite flattering. I haven't felt up to doing any new paintings on my new tablet, soooo...have this super old thing of a human GLaDOS (from Portal/Portal 2) I did for a friend's birthday in my second year of college. She introduced me to Portal then and i still haven't beaten it i'm dumb

ASK US! {Skyenja}

Journal Entry: Sat Aug 1, 2015, 3:36 PM


What am I doing with my life?

Alright everybody, let's get this show on the road!

So, we've got these two adorable cuties right here.
Iship by TaxeyCab

And you all know that for some reason I majorly ship them now.

Iship2 by TaxeyCab

SOOOO.
I've decided I'ma start an ask!
I know, how original ;u;

How to ask: It's simple, first start with "for {character name}:" then ask your question! You can ask the two of them as a group if you'd like, just say "for Skyenja:" then your question! You can also dare them if you'd like, simply do the whole "for {character name}:" then say your dare!

PLEASE DON'T: Role-play in any of the questions, I find it annoying do to the fact that on almost every single one of my youtube videos there are very LONG role-plays going on that notify me constantly. That causes me to simply ignore the notifications on that video and for all I know someone is trying to get a hold of me with an important question or something. Also, please don't ask those "turn into ____" questions. If they are asked, I will simply ignore them.

Disclaimer: I don't own Sky or Mitch, or any of the side characters you may see in this ask! They own themselves and I'm simply messing with them. Also, I have every right to not answer a question. If it bothers me, I won't answer it. 

There really is no point to this, it's just for my personal entertainment and your enjoyment of reading the answers. I look forward to starting this up <3!

Alrighty people, ASK AWAY!
