You might be kind of surprised I haven't said anything about this here yet! I've been super busy lately, and my family was visiting during E3. But I've been really hyped over on twitter, and the announcement has even inspired my oldest online friend group (that I met on a Banjo-Tooie forum!) to get back together more actively than we've been in like a decade.
The scope of my fandom life, and the hope and excitement that comes from some of my favorite things being way more popular again, is such a change from just a year ago. It's hard to believe that back then, in trying to protect myself from heartbreak, I kept my hopes low and my expectations cynical and believed we'd never see K. Rool again. Now not only is he here, but in the same game with Banjo and Kazooie for the first time ever! This is like a little glimpse of the Rare crossover I always dreamed of as a kid, but unfortunately was never given the opportunity to come to pass after they were bought out. It's the first time
So, uh, hey, since when is dA forcing your "scraps" folder to be visible? I logged on today and it was there with the rest of my gallery folders, giving me quite the scare. Because... I legit didn't even know I had stuff in there, and it was all like 10 years old and really terrible so I just deleted it all in a mad panic because I don't know how to hide it. No one should ever see that stuff again.
It's not visible anymore since it's empty, but... it might actually be useful if filled with some decent newer things. Does anyone know if it actually notifies people now when you update "scraps", because it might not be bad to actually use it for sketchier/uncolored stuff that I wouldn't normally consider worthy of putting in my gallery at all.
I don't use dA enough anymore.... it's a website that hasn't really changed all that much throughout the years, but it is now, so I'm trying to keep up!
As of today, I've had this account for ten years. This is the first place I used the name Altermentality, which I've since carried over to everywhere else I go. It took me a while to feel like this username was "my name", but while I still prefer people call me Courtney, I've come to feel that Alter fits me just as well.
I'm doing a lot of reflection today: how much I've changed over the past ten years, and how much I still want to change. It may be slow, but there are definitely some directions I purposefully want to point myself in, and some things I want to move away from. Today provided me a good symbolic excuse to make some serious comm
