1. When did you start drawing?
I started drawing when I was... maybe six or seven. I was really young. And I had been going through lots of surgeries on my legs so I had little else to do. I took up drawing because it was fun, and gave me something to pass the time while I was in casts. I liked the PPG (Powerpuff Girls) style so I drew a lot of that. I also remember a time when I drew stills from Sonic the Hedgehog the Movie (OVA). I'd pause the TV and sit and look at the screen off and on, sketching the characters out. I was really proud of them, too. I did a couple of Tails and Sonic. I lost the papers, though. >.<
2. Why did you join DeviantArt?
I honestly don't remember how I came across the site. But I wanted to find a place where I could share my art with others and keep better track of it. I joined simply because it was a free, easy-to-use website that seemed the most
The Monster in the MirrorSimon stood in the bathroom of his apartment, staring at the mirror, and made mental notes of every change in his appearance. The face staring back at him was like a stranger to him, and he was disgusted by it.The Monster in the Mirror2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Simon rarely ate these days, so now his face was gaunt. That, along with his sickly, greyish-blue complexion, made him look like a corpse. His thin face also made his milky white eyes and the long, grotesque nose stand out even more. His hair was now almost completely gray, no longer showing any hint of the dark brown it used to be. It framed his face like a dreary curtain. He had long given up on taming it, just as he had his beard. His hair grew at an unnatural rate, and by now, no matter how often he shaved and cut it, it was hopeless. Even his teeth were different; weeks ago, he lost each tooth one by one, and they were replaced by longer, pointed, shark-like teeth.
As much as it pained him to say so, there was a part of Simon that was glad Betty left before she could see wh

Today was another calm and relaxing day for Twilight who, sitting on a park bench, watched as Rainbow Dash and Pinkie Pie ran around in a game of tag. Applejack and Rarity stood at the edge of a pond, bickering over something to do with their manes. Finally Twilight looked to her right, seeing Fluttershy on the bench beside her, looking down to the ground and lightly crying.
"Fluttershy? What's the matter?" Twilight asked softly.
Fluttershy tried to look more cheery, wiping her tears away. "Oh, n-nothing is wrong."
Twilight looked into Fluttershy's sorrowful eyes. Something about herself was bothering her friend. Did she say something? Or do something? Maybe there was something wrong with her she hadn't seen before. Seeing the pond, an idea came to her, so she stood from the bench. Something felt wrong; her bones and entire body ached in pain. She felt as though she had been in a fight or put through intensive labor.

For many years, Rainbow Dash had fantasized about this moment. Its attainment had, after all, been her lifelong goal, and the one thing she had worked the hardest for to accomplish, for as long as she could remember. She had dreamt about it many a night. Her dreams had always been much the same. She had stood, surrounded by a crowd of other eager pegasi, in the Cloudiseum. As one excited mass, they had waited patiently, staring upwards at an empty stage. In her dreams, she had held her breath in nervous anticipation, listening to the faint buzz of whispered conversation around her, until, wait, there she is! There she is!
The appearance of Spitfire, captain of the Wonderbolts and subject of every conversation around her, would invariably bring the mass of pegasi to a sudden hush, and pure, deathly silence reigned over the entire assemblage. To Rainbow Dash, this part of each dream seemed to pla

--Overrated is for something that still has values. Naruto is purely garbage.
Two years ago I asked my friend for some good new manga/anime and at that time I still considered DBZ as the best one ever made. And he was like:Dude, DBZ is so 1990s, right now everyone is reading the manga Naruto. And I thought Id better check this thing out because 1. if everyone is reading it then it has to be good and 2.my friend was Chinese and he wore glasses so I thought maybe he knew a lot about anime and he was smart. It turned out that to stereotype people is always wrong. The only thing I want to do these days is hoping that in the future I may forget the painful experience of reading Naruto. It is the worst and ugliest garbage created by mankind to date, right next to Holocaust (no offense to the Jewist community). Im not even going to use the word overrated here because overrated is for something thats still has

Location: a restaurant. Justin is hiding from fangirls and he's sitting at the counter. He sees June Luna, alone, and goes up to her.
JL (not looking at him, unaware that it's Justin Bieber.)
(Justin thinks he has the charm to get her to like him.) JB: So, uh, are you an Aquarius?
JL: How did you know?
JB: Lucky guess. Uh, are you single?
JL (looks at him): Holy crap, it's Justin Bieber!
JB: I see you like my work.
JL (guffaws): Haha! No, I hate it. And I'm not single. I'm married. (shows him her wedding ring.)
JB: Impossible, you're, like, 16.
JL (slaps him): 18! 18 and a half! Also, I have a child. She heard your music once, and she blew chunks on the floor. Plus, she will never walk. She has muscular dystrophy.
JB: But everybody likes me.

My Little DashieOk, don't worry yourselves everyone. This is not a drill. Due to Deviant Art's word cap, I realized a bunch of edits going into my story have not been getting updated. So, I made a Google Doc which you can follow here https://docs.google.com/document/d/1NwdIJMALxxi6egHz832IuNIHy1J7JAqulJFoGeLM5tY/edit?hl=en_US or an actual hyperlinky thingy below in the description.

The thought bounced around Nepeta's mind as soon as she woke up in the morning. It would plague her all day, as it had for seven or was it eight? days now. She did not feel the hard wooden slats of the bench her numb hip was pressed into, or the griminess of her hair, flattened under her neck by her coat, which she'd been using as a pillow.
She was literally "on the park bench," as it were, because when a troll's lusus dies, she is thrown out to starve.
Can't let a parentless troll run around causing trouble, you see. She's underage, so we'd have to put her in an orphanage, and those cost a lot of money to run. Too much money. Money that could be better spent on the war. Nepeta was 7 sweeps old not very underage, but underage enough.
Better to just let natural selection take care of her.
Nepeta had been in the park, Pounce's favourite place in the sprawling city that was their home, since she'd been thrown out by a police dr

Nepeta went back to Karkat's store that very afternoon. Aradia dropped her off and told her to give a call when she wanted to leave.
There was a "closed for repairs, come back Tuesday," sign on the door, but it was unlocked as usual. When Nepeta went in, Karkat was taping up the edge of the counter with silver duct tape. The floor shone clean where Gamzee had fallen, the gleaming linoleum at odds with its still-dusty environs.
Karkat heard the bell to the door of the shop ring and spun around angrily. Seeing it was Nepeta he said, "Oh, it's you."
"Hi," Nepeta said. "Do you mind if I come in? I'll help you fix things up, if you like."
"I think not," Karkat scoffed, rolling his eyes.
"Um, okay?" Nepeta said, taken aback. She felt hurt, for some ridiculous and unapparent reason. Why should some random stranger, albeit an adorably angry stranger, who had happened to let her sit behind his counter, want to talk to her? Arguably she had saved his life, or at least his s

You're mostly in my mind, but not because I worry
But because I miss the gentle voice that inspired my poems
The playful personality that cheered me up every moment
Your adorable ways, that would always warm my heart
How beautiful you are that you'd break the fourth wall
Your difference between girls, being real, not a thought
My heart was sad until here, you were brought
Because every time I go to sleep
I wish that you were here, laying down next to me
Hopefully, you feel the same
Because without you, I just can't stay sane

Karkat awoke on his bed in a cold sweat. His first thought: It isn't purple.
He was off of Derse. He was back. Back to his friends, back to-
Back to just not talking to Nepeta, he thought.
Karkat turned to see Terezi in his room. She ran up to hug him. "Thank gog you're okay! I've been so worried about you! I mean we. We've been worried about you."
Karkat raised a quizzical eyebrow. "You have?"
Terezi backed up and blushed a little. "Yeah, well..."
"Well, I've been trying to tell you, but I've been waiting for the right time..." Karkat knew what was coming next. "Well, I'm flushed for you, Karkat."
Karkat sighed. He, as all the other trolls knew, that Terezi was flushed for him.
But Karkat just didn't feel the same way about her.
Karkat sighed and hugged Terezi. "Karkat?" Terezi stammered.
"I'm sorry, Terezi, but your not the one I'm flushed for."
Terezi backed out from the hug,

Dave Strider turned his head away from his sister as a loud thumping noise echoed throughout the entire lab.
"Goddamn sheets!" an incredibly angry voice sounded through the hallways.
"First hour of the day and he's already fucking things up," Dave said, shaking his head. "Looks like someone woke up on the wrong side of the bed."
"Metaphorically or literally?" asked Rose, sitting at the other end of the table in the lab station's main room. A book on troll quadrants rested open in her lap.
"Fuck!" the irritated voice yelled out. "Human recuperacoons are fucking ridiculous!"
"I'm not entirely sure what you mean by that," Dave responded, "considering the only beds here are inhumanely shitty mattresses- but I would have to guess both."

“Nhf-Fuckin’ what the hell?”
Karkat’s eyes shot open as he sat up rubbing his eyes. His eyes wandered over to the clock.
“Jegus its fucking two in the morning ass face, couldn’t you fucking-” he looked over at the door way and saw a teary eyed Nepeta standing in his door way. He sighed and sat up a little more.
Nepeta looked down, wiping her eyes, she tackled him into a hug and started to sob in his chest. Not knowing what to really do, Karkat lazily wrapped his arms around her and rested his chin on the top of her head.
“Hey…come on now…shhhhh….” He gently started to rub small circles in her back while she sobbed.
Karkat kissed the top of her head and pulled her close.

Her heart couldnt take the pain the monster inside her had won
She hurt him so much how could she?...
She loved him and still does all she wanted was for him to be happy
She didnt want him to create ideas and fairytales in his head,
She inevitably fell in love with two people but I couldnt is all she said
She tried pushing him away
But she couldnt stand not hearing from him she had to talk to him every day.
She had lied to him broken a promise she knew she had to keep
That night she cringed in pain crying hurting she passed out and fell asleep
Time went by fast but when she awoke she had remembered what she had done
The weight in her chest felt like it weighed a ton
The pain just kept on hitting her,
Torturing her slowly killing her

Below the City of Canterlot, in the lowest chambers of the Castle, is where the dungeons resided. Here is where the rulers of Equestria would place certain ponies for crimes and bad behavior. Usually, the dungeon was empty since there had been no reason to use it…until now.
By order of Princess Celestia, Twilight Sparkle, her now former student, was to be placed in a cell with her friends. There, they would remain until the Princess was ready to release them. A guard stood watch over the door to the cell, and was ignoring a certain pony that was annoying him from within.
“Hey, you!” Rainbow Dash tried to get his attention, “Yeah, I’m talking to you, bud! Let us out of here!!!”
The guard continued to ignore the mare with the big mouth.
“Don’t ignore me! I’m talking to you!!”
Applejack grabbed Rainbow and pulled her down from the door, “Pipe down already, Rainbow! It’s not helpin’!”
