Hello! I see that it has been some time since I have uploaded a journal (April). I've been putting off writing this one, but since I am no longer as active here as I was in the past, now seems to be the time. I won't be uploading any more photographs or fan fictions to this site. It was fun, but real life has kept me away from the camera, and there is very little time to write fan fictions. I don't think that anyone read the last several submissions as most of my watchers have left, but they were fun to write--especially the Miseducation of Lavinia Llywnog. Two years and twenty chapters--it was certainly a project! Thanks again to :dev

Year of the Monkey 2016
Happy New Year, everyone! I am doing the New Year feature a bit early this year, since February 8, 2016, which begins the Year of the Monkey, also ends my core membership. This will be my last feature journal, so I figured that hailing the new year would be a good idea to end it. I don't know about all of you, but 2015, the Year of the Sheep, came in like a lamb and went out like a ram, leaving a lot of us pretty bruised. Let's hope that this year is better!
