6. What fictional character in any book/movie/show/etc can you relate to most?

maybe nathaniel / john mandrake from the bartimaeus trilogy? however, i'm nowhere as intelligent as him, although i sometimes feel like a snotty teenager who needs other people to accomplish hard tasks for me while i just sit around and act like a jealous brat, and nathaniel is the snottiest prick protagonist i've ever read. i guess you could say that i modeled a bit of elliot from Non respexerunt's character after him because nathaniel is a horrid protagonist, as it goes. but he still makes the whole book go round.

deviantART, facebook, flight rising, fallen london. i don't go on tumblr that often because i already have a shit ton of tabs open.

23. Have you ever suggested a Daily Deviation?
No, because 1) I'm a wimp and 2) there's nothing for me to suggest since I can't pick which art I like. I'm really indecisive like that.
24. Everyone has considered leaving DA once or twice. Have you? Why?
A couple of times? C: I left dA for a bit and entrusted my account to Socha-Nyx so that I wouldn't have the urge to open my account and fuck myself over again a year ago when I was undergoing a buttload of pressure from an ex online friend, ACTs and AP exams. Needless to say, all the drama from that ex online friend happened to fuck over a few of my junior year grades so I had to call it quits and go off deviantArt or I wasn't going to accomplish anything.
I seem to have at least one major fiasco every year after that, but it's nothing too much that I can't handle. I also have small urges to just pack up and leave when I see artists who steal/copy/trace/are douchebags and artists who don't deserve their fame. Don't know if anyone would miss me if I left, but I guess I'll just stay here and churn out art at the pace of a snail for right now. :^)
