My name is Charlie, and I've been a fan of Deviant art for quite some time. I hope to explore all that is offered here, and hopefully meet some deviants in person(wouldn't that be nice!) I must say deviant art rocks, and I hope to find its full potential in the future!
Cheers! Charlie Lucas (a.k.a Elliot Starfire, very similar to Elliot from Pete's Dragon ).
If I had the chance to become any kind of creature, I'd be either a griffin, or a dragon, and choose Draco, from 'Dragonheart', Drago, from 'Dragonheart 3: The Sorcerer's Curse', or Elliot from the 2016 'Pete's Dragon' remake.
I would (naturally) possess vast healing abilities stemming from my heart, and also have the ability of 'shadow-jumping', a special form of teleportation, seen in DH3: The Sorcerer's Curse.
I would also have mental shields so strong that they can only be breached if I was severely hurt, or killed.
I would possess hydrokinesis, or mental control over water, terrakinesis, which is mental control over earth, and magnokinesis, mental control over magnetism, as well as Sebastian Shaw's power to absorb raw energy and convert it into vast strength and healing.
My scales would be diamond-hard. Or my fur would have the property of steel against any and all weapons, yet be soft to human touch.
I could communicate both verbally and telepathically; the power being exactly like Peter Petrelli's on 'Heroes' (psychic static, thought-pushing, sending, and receiving).

Some things about me:
My name is Charlie Lucas (aka "Chuck").
My favourite foods are pizza, seafood, dragonfruit, honeydew, McIntosh, Gala, & Granny Smith apples, Toblerone chocolate, red velvet cake, black forest cake, Guylian seashell chocolates, Hershey kisses, and sushi.
My birthday falls exactly one week before Christmas.
I have hiked B.C.'s West Coast Trail, been all over western Canada, and have visited the United States.
I love the outdoors, sports, and martial arts.
My favourite restaurants are Montana's BBQ & Bar in Winnipeg, and the Foxtail Cafe in Onanole.
I am hoping to learn how to snowboard.
I'm also hoping to learn to play the bass guitar(specifically, either the Aria Pro II SB R60, or an Alembic Spoiler, both owned and played by the late, legendary Cliff Burton of Metallica, the Aria TAB-TR1 acoustic bass, or the Epiphone Jack Casady Signature).
Or, I would love to learn how to play the lute.
I hope to learn how to use either nunchucks (Michelangelo), a manriki-gusari chain weapon, also wielded by him in place of the nunchucks, seen here:
, or sai daggers (Raphael).
I LOVE B.C., and would leave Manitoba to live there in a heartbeat.
I LOVE Dragonheart, the 2014 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie, and the 2016 remake of Pete's Dragon.
I am hoping to learn woodcarving (having been inspired by Robert Redford's character Mr. Meacham, from the 2016 Pete's Dragon remake), and maybe turn it into a career.
I am an avid practitioner of resistance training.
I have owned a variety of pets:
a black goldfish named Zoe.
a blue budgie named Joe.
Four dogs: Two purebred blue heelers, Jack and Spook, a purebred black Lab named Cuba, three ferrets: a white one named Carlos, and two sable ferrets, Rocky and Tony.
I owned a Lab/Shepherd cross named Jake. He passed away Tuesday, December 5th, 2017, aged 14 years.
My family recently acquired a blue heeler puppy named Spook (Saturday, June 17, 2017). The first heeler named Spook was acquired when she was already fairly grown. The "second" Spook, we acquired while she was just a puppy.
The first Spook had black across both eyes, and a solid blue-gray coat.
Our present heeler, also named Spook, has a black mark just above her tail, and black covering only her right eye.
I have cerebral palsy and hydrocephalus(excess fluid buildup in the brain), which prompted doctors to give me a shunt at birth, which is a plastic tube put in my brain to drain fluid and relieve the pressure.
My brain damage affects my short-term memory, and a theory I have is that the possible flip-side to my brain damage, is that my long-term memory is at an almost photographic level.
I am a Christian.
I love astronomy, and the constellations Draco the Dragon and Aquila the Eagle are my two favourites.
On an interesting note, the month of my birth, December, has 17 different birthstones:
Beryl (Aquamarine, Morganite, Bixbite, Heliodorl, & Emerald).
Here they are grouped into their timelines:
Treasures for December:
1) Cat's eye (Lucian's medallion from 'Underworld')
2) Labradorite (Kili's rune stone)
2) Ruby - Gandalf's ring (Narya, the Ring of Fire)
3) Sapphire - Elrond's ring (Vilya, the Ring of Air)
4) Sodalite (Thorin Oakenshield's Seal Ring)
5) Beryl (Emerald) - Aragorn's ring (The Ring of Barahir)
6) Amethyst (Jack Sparrow's stolen ring, aka the "Crystal Treasure" ring)
It is interesting to note that some stones, such as ruby, have both ancient and modern-day uses.
Another interesting factor to note is that garnet, the birthstone for both December and January, has several different forms:
1) Pyrope, a dark blood-red, is the most common form of the mineral.
2) Almandine is another very common form, similar to pyrope garnet.
3) Spessartite is a fiery orange or orange-red variety of garnet. It can be found in Kenya and the Umba River Valley, Tanzania.
4) Grossular garnet can be either deep golden-yellow, due to impurities, or colourless, similar to diamond, although this colourless variety is the more common of the two.
5) Andradite garnet is the most lustrous form of the mineral, with several varieties:
A) Demantoid, a green form similar to olivine, which is a deep green variety of chrysolite.
B) Topazolite, a yellow/brownish-yellow variety similar to pure chrysolite.
C) Melanite, a dark red or black variety.
D) Uvarovite, the rarest form of garnet, is a deep chrome-green that is unique due to it only existing in this single colour. It looks almost identical to bloodstone, except for having no red "blood" spots.
My favourites are labradorite, cat's eye, bloodstone, sodalite, ruby, lapis lazuli, and sapphire.
Of all these gemstones, Zircon is the only one that is used as a cheap imitation of real diamond, but is said to be the closest you can get to diamond itself. Although its sparkle is suggestive of this, many perceive zircon as a cheap knockoff.
In the Book of Revelation, chapter 21, verses 19-20, several of my birthstones form part of the foundation of the city of Jerusalem, and are as follows:
Peridot (also known as chrysolite, which is also the August birthstone, is the seventh foundation stone)
Amethyst (the twelfth foundation stone)
Chalcedony (the third foundation stone)
Star Sapphire (the second foundation stone)
Topaz (the ninth foundation stone)
