Best! Day! Ever!If January Brony Con was my Gala, then this one was my Sonic Rainboom. What a amazing event it was. Sadly I didn't see UC77.... He couldn't make it to the signing. I was recognized by a couple folks. Signed some pony books that I didn't do.Best! Day! Ever!4 years ago in Personal More Like This
So the screening there was..... The VA's (minus Tabitha) doing a live cast of the Heart's Warming Eve episode. They used a girl from the audience to sub for Rarity and she was good! That was sooo amazing. Then we got to watch the actual episode with them. (They never seen the whole thing until now)
Gave all the VA's gift art.

For Ashleigh Ball http://i.imgur.com/zTFyR.jpg - She totally loved it. Took a picture with her too. I almost chocked here. I told her about Dash being my favorite pony.
I drew a Spike for Cathy Weseluck and a Fluttershy for Andrea Libman, but I didn't take photos of the pics! They love
My DeviantArt StoryLots of people are doing this lately. I might actually be a little late to the bandwagon, but I figured it still might be fun to do this. ^_^My DeviantArt Story1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I joined DeviantArt in July of 2006 (back then, I went by the alias, LittleLynn84). It was not the best time for me because I actually had limited means of actually presenting my art at the time. But I'd wanted to get involved on an art site and (at the time, being long pre-transition), I wanted a space where I could be recognized as female (hence the chosen name). If I remember correctly, the little bit of art that I did newly draw was had to be done on paper, and was later brought to a free access scanner at the local college where I would then save to a flash drive and put online when I got the chance again (god, I love being able to draw digitally now). Those early works included stuff like this:

My Christmas ExperienceLast year, when I came down to visit family for the holidays, I ended up seeing my extended family on my dad's side (it was the first time I'd see them while presenting en femme). It went pretty sour. There were a couple dozen people there; four of whom said "hi" to me and nothing else. Everyone else just avoided me like the plague. My grandmother wouldn't even look at me. That hit me really hard and left me depressed for months (I don't think I ever discussed it on DA though). Thankfully, progress has happened since, and over the course of the year I got back into contact with two of my aunts. That's still only a fraction of the people that were there, but progress is progress.My Christmas Experience11 months ago in Personal More Like This
On that same note, while I didn't see my grandmother herself this year, she dropped off Christmas cards at the house. The envelope actually reads "Joshalyn" while it still says "Josh" inside the card. I... really have to give her credit for trying. This is actually kin
CEA Blog: Mature ContentHey guys, today I want to talk about Mature Content on deviantART and hopefully clear up some misconceptions that exist around it.

How the mature content filter works
All members over the age of 18 can choose to enable or disable the mature content filter to suit their needs. All members with a registered date of birth under the age of 18 have the mature content filter locked on and can not disable it. All logged out visitors have the mature content filter enabled and can not disable it.
The mature content filter is split in to two types, strict and warning. The strict filter is completely voluntary and prevents any deviant with the mature content filter on from accessing the work. The general or warning filter is the standard mature content tag and will remove the image from immediate view when browsing and place an warning page on the devi

Guys, just an off topic thing.
I'm unsure just how many of you use deviantart.com, we do and we've used it for years on our personal profiles. In that time, we've gained a following, had moments of sadness, moments of awesome and all manner of things.

Confession 1: Your biggest fear.
Confrontation. Specifically, being confronted about something I've done wrong.
Confession 2: Worst Nightmare.
I assume this means literal nightmares. I went through a several year long phase of constant night terrors as a kid. The most common recurring theme was being lost, or being where I thought home was but my home is vanished, or the door was [ in an apartment ]. I also had a vivd nightmare about a group of kids playing hockey on the little rink near my house but instead of a puck they had a little backpack and the rink was covered in blood. I was about 7 years old.

VisibilityVisibility8 months ago in Personal More Like This
Here's me trying something different. Although there's no official Monday post this week, I decided to repost an old one today. Tomorrow is the Transgender Day of Visibility, and I unfortunately don't think I'll have time to make a new piece dedicated to it like I wanted to. However, I thought this page was pretty relevant.
For those unaware, Transgender Day of Visibility is an annual holiday dedicated to celebrating trans people and raising awareness of discrimination faced by trans people worldwide. It was founded in 2009, in response to the lack of LGBT holidays celebrating transgender people. I tend to forget about it until it's done and passed, but the one year I remember (albeit still a little late), I've got a lot going on. So a repost, it is!
Remember folks, you don't HAVE to be visible if you don't want to. You don't HAVE to stealth either. You SHOULD do whatever makes you happy, though. That's the important thing. "It's really just all about

Folks, if you want Ponyville Ghostbusters, to become number 1 and bring your OC's from Ghostbusters or Villains to life Ponyville Ghostbusters need support, yes from you.
I have seen soft toys, figures, papercraft, T-shirt designs and possible board game.
Think about it, a project like this never got this attention everyone wants to see Ghostbusters comeback. Including me, but Ponyville Ghostbusters could be the next step.
So get the word out and the support so one day a fan movie will come out of this.
ONE DAY, A PONYVILLE GHOSTBUSTERS FAN MOVIE WILL BE MADE FULL ANIMATION, WHERE IT WILL BE LAUNCHED IN FRONT OF BIG CROWDS ONE DAY.

Things were a little shaky at first, but by the second hour, I already got used to it! It's much more sensitive and REALLY, comfortable to work on!

First things first: in all due respect, we're deeply sorry.
Sorry that we trusted the wrong people, of course, but most importantly, sorry that some, we fear that many, have been caught up in this mess.
We're sure that by now you all must be aware of what we're talking about, the mess from a few months back leading to public accusations and and a lot of trouble from which we narrowly avoided catastrophic consequences.
We thought it was over, and wanted to leave it buried like that, the past was the past and nothing we did would or could change it, but now we're aware, and have proof, that once again someone is spreading seeds of mistrust, lies and deceit amongst our dearest fans.
We won't claim it true or not, we just wish that, if you get such messages, please talk to us first before taking any sort of action, although we know you're all kind and considerably smart people that will know to separate the lies from the truth should these tides of d

I think I've been wanting to cosplay for like.. two years now? Yeah, I've been an otaku for quite a while now, but the 'cosplay' thing never got me anywhere. Why? Because I never knew how to get a costume. Besides.. I didn't know who I should cosplay.
I had watched various animes, but my favorite characters were either boys or.. I didn't like the clothes. I'm not quite able to cosplay as boys either. I didn't want to cosplay people who were just wearing a school uniform or anything of the like, I wanted something special. In the end, I started to think of Kagamine Rin. She's my favorite vocaloid after all. (Next to Len though.) But I didn't like the fact that you could actually see her legs and her belly, so I just couldn't decide if I wanted to do her or not.
At the same time, I was thinking about Crona. As 'he' wasn't a boy or a girl for sure, it was alrigh

The comic artist has sent me a rather heartfelt apology. She seems legitimately remorseful and has in fact deleted all of her tweets on the matter, so I am willing to accept her apology. So for those of you who poked around and seeked her out to say something to her or who were planning on boycotting her comic (despite that all being what I was trying to avoid), it's okay. I know you mean well, but there's no reason to go after her. We're cool. Everything's cool.
The reviewer I'm a little less sympathetic for, on account of her continued attitude through all of this. And if you want to seek out the review and read it, that's fine. I won't stop you. HOWEVER, that said, I would still ask you to leave her alone. There's really no point in saying anything to her. I know you might want to defend my honor and I thank you for wanting to be there for me, but I honestly think
