Its Been A While
Hello old friend... It has been quite a while. Six years to be exact. When I took my work down, I left without a word. That was unfair to my watchers and friends. Most of you never even heard a word from me in all that time. I had a couple notes asking if I was sick. Others thought it was some ploy for more attention. I never gave an answer.  I guess it's best explain my actions. Several months before I left, there were some family deaths that occurred. I didn't realize it at the time but it hit me harder then I actually thought. I lacked the energy or drive to draw anymore. Nothing I worked on was finished and I was letting people down be

Like many others, Fatal and their art and stories on Neopets were a great source of inspiration to me when I was young. Those days are long behind me, but I feel nostalgic for the art, and wish I could see it again. I understand that Fatal has chosen to take it down, but if anyone has access to the neopets art that was available in the past, please contact me. I have absolutely no desire to post it on the internet or plagiarise from it, I'd just like to see it again. It's a precious childhood memory for me and I miss it.

All the best in your endeavours, Fatal-Mantis. Thanks for being an inspiration to me and so many others.

I know it's too little too late...
But I wanted to lay this here... Somewhere. Perhaps you'll see it one day.

You inspired me to create.

I don't know how old I was, exactly, but I know I saw Shacar at the beauty contest on Neopets and that I wanted to be just like you. I wanted to draw as beautifully as you did. I even made my most common username inspired by yours! (If my DA username is enough to prove that point.) 

I'm sorry that thieves, and people generally being toxic made you shy away from neopets, and shy away from Deviantart. It really upsets me that you were pretty much my artistic Idol as a child and that the wrong kinds of fans of your work pulled you from both mediums. Every time I was upset I thought to draw, and improve, because I knew perhaps I would become as great as you were some day.
You even inspired me to role play...! The stories that you seemed to craft with your characters, their ideas made me want to write. I remember a piece you did of Akansho and Shacar flying through the clouds on one of your pages, and Nightwish's song, "Walking in the Air" was playing.

I still love art, and I think I'm pretty good now...
So, I wanted to say thank you. Thank you so, so much, for everything you've done. I really hope you're still out there, creating beautiful artwork, and sculpting wonderful stories.

Hi. I know, I'm late. I'm pretty much sad to see that my favorite childhood artist is gone, but I can understand her reasons. I hope she is doing well with her life. I hope she will not abandon her passions. She was really good, in drawing. 

PS: I wanted to know if someone knows the classical song on Shacar10 homepage, before it was gone ?
PPS: Sorry, my english is bad, my mother tongue is french.
