Stones of Incienda, Ch. 1, part 7
During this time, the royal family of Mulada was inspecting the city's damage. With them was much of their guard, which included Inaya and her father, Faris Nagi, who was the Captain of the Guard. Also with them were some of the city builders and healers. Even though the land was spared, there was still significant damage. Most of it was away from the center of the city where the palace was. Worse yet, in the most damaged areas, there was a lot of death. Inaya had seen death before, but never this much. Still, she kept her face stoic the way her father trained her. Her own mother died giving birth to her and since her father loved her mother too much, he never remarried. Unfortunately, he also closed off his heart to his daughter too, but did teach Inaya everything he knew and raised her as a boy, for the most part. When Inaya became a young woman though, her late mother's oldest sister added pressure on her father to get Inaya to act like a lady too. He did so her aunt "would get off

Dragons of Fraidel, Ch. 3
Chapter III.
Adapting to
Earth
On Fraidel, burials were either private or public. Royal burials were different. First, there was a private memorial service for the family, then the actual burial took place where the entire clan was invited. Also, each clan buried their dead in different manors. With the Water Dragon Clan, they lowered their human loved ones, who were encased in a water based casket, into the closest river to the bottom. The dragons were burned to ashes and then scattered onto the river. In all clans, it was customary for dragons to be cremated. What they did with the ashes was what distinguished the clans. So on the day of the burial, the late King Tristian and his son, Lord Niron, were lowered into the river. It was a quiet event like all burials. Only this time there was an air of anxiety as to who did this atrocity. After the burial was over, everyone went home. They got ready for the coronation.
The next day, around midday, the coronation took place in the main cou

Dragons of Fraidel, Ch. 2
Chapter II. Decisions are Made
Galeena Stellar was still screaming when she woke up. She sat up as she placed her hand on her heart. The first thought that entered her mind was that she was glad that the walls were thick enough so the neighbors on her floor of her apartment complex would not hear her. That very minute, her alarm went off. She turned it off before getting out of bed. She went into the kitchen and started fixing some coffee. While it prepared itself, Galeena went and took a shower. The warm water calmed her down. After getting out, she wrapped her hair in a towel, and put on her robe. She went back into the kitchen and had her coffee. While she was doing this, she thought about her dream. This time, it felt real, although it wasn't. Did this man even existed? If he did, where was he from? Why was she even dreaming of him? She continued to think about her mystery man as she prepared for the day. It took her another 30 minutes to dry her hair and got dressed. She was eatin

Been awhile since I've done a journal like this (that is personal).  I know 2018 I haven't been as interactive as much online, but that's only because I wanted to focus more on my real life and I don't regret it.  Because of that, I finally feel like I've started moving forward with my life after several years of stagnation.  I know 2018 was a rough year for many, but for me it was overall pretty good.  There of course were some bad moments, but I always expect them to happen.  Now I'll only bring up this subject briefly and will not go into specifics.  At the beginning of 2018 I know something major happened online that negatively affected so many people, especially to those whom I care for a lot.  The person who caused this, well needless to say when I found out the cause, I think I was one of the few who wasn't surprised.  This is only because I always expect the worst from anyone (including myself since I am aware of my flaws and I know my actions will hurt others).  I just stay sane though because I always hope for the best too.  It's what kept me alive all this time.  Also, I know the bitter taste of betrayal on several occasions so it doesn't surprise me anymore.  One thing though I do wish I could have done more about this situation was check on the people I knew who were directly involved and hurt by it.  I knew there was very little I could do, but I still wanted to try.  A little goes a long way after all.

Another thing that happened this year that had a direct impact on me was when Florida got hit by Hurricane Michael.  My own brother and his family were in it's direct path.  Luckily they evacuated ahead of time and were safe, but ended up loosing almost everything.  My brother means the world to me (as well as his wife and kids) so seeing them having hard times for the latter half of this year has not been easy to watch.  I couldn't imagine how I would adapt if I lost 99% of my stuff.  I know your life is irreplaceable, but it's still must be a shock.  Right now they're in Virginia near Langley Base (my brother is in the Air Force and finally got transferred).  They're hopefully going to get this house soon (it's not finalized yet).  So hopefully this year will be better for them.  I will continue to do my best for them because they're one of the few family members who I am close to (besides my other brother and one aunt of mine).

One thing I was able to get back onto was therapy.  Some of ya'll don't know this but for the past 4 to 5 years, I've started having rage issues and I knew it wasn't normal.  I realize now my intense anger will never go away because of personal reasons I can't say, but thanks to my old therapist (she recently retired and I now have a new one, she's pretty nice), I've been having fewer outbursts.  Even though I am thankful for the friends I have online, I don't have anyone here to physically talk to when it comes to local people.  Because of that I was feeling pretty isolated.  So it's been a huge relief to have someone to talk to about my issues (well not all of them but a good chunk).

I started driving in earnest this year and it's made me feel more independent.  Although I do have to be careful since I only get so much money from Disability.  It's actually why my main goal for 2019 is to find a job.  I just need to keep at it.  This leads to my next positive, I now have a job coach!  Goodwill offers a Job Assistance program (it's a non-profit too since I don't have to pay a thing for their services since all their money comes from Goodwill) and several months ago I found out about it and got involved.  I am slowing rebuilding my confidence to try and succeed in getting a job.

Last thing I'd like to mention is that I got involved with Fiesta Especial (details here- Fiesta Especial Royal Court Campaign (Major)Hi everyone!  I have a major announcement that'll affect what I'll be doing from here into the Spring of next year.  For those who are not aware, I live near the city of San Antonio, Texas.  Every spring the city has a 10 Day event called Fiesta San Antonio.  It was originally created to honor those who have fought in the Battles of the Alamo and San Jacinto which resulted in Texas's independence from Mexico.  It's such a major event that classes are always canceled in the city for the Battle of the Flowers Parade.  So many things happen in it.  One of the things associated with Fiesta are the Royal Courts.  These courts are sponsored by different groups and what they all have in common is they raise money for different local charities and other non-profits.  I will actually be campaigning for one of these Courts.  The one I'll be participating in is the Fiesta Especial Royal Court Campaign.  This court is for those with Special Ne).  I'd like to say this campaign has had it's ups and downs, but overall I feel it's been worth my time (it's not over yet, just the fundraising part).  Thanks to help from others, I was able to raise over $1,700 and placed 6th out of 11 girls and earned the rank of Countess.  My coronation will be next month on Feb. 6th.  I'll be dressing up in a nice dress with my own personalized cape.  Hopefully my crown will fit my head LOL!  I have a big head lol.  Last week I ordered my dress at David's Bridal (they do more then Wedding Dresses lol). It's a silver A-line dress that goes pass my knees (but doesn't reach the floor).  Even better, the sponsors of Fiesta Especial have gotten people from Walgreens to do us girls our hair and make-up for free!  I haven't had professional make up done since 1996 (age 14) or my hair done since my senior prom in 2000 (age 18)!

This leads into what I hope for 2019.  Well my main goal is to find a job.  This year (hopefully) I get to check off my #1 Bucket List Goal- go to Disney World.  I know the future isn't set in stone and that anything can pop up, but this has been one of my biggest dreams.  One thing that I am thrilled about this year is one of my dear friends moving out to Texas this month (and the person won't be too far from me either).  I won't say who, but I am sure ya'll will find out.

Gen 4 MLP comes to a close this year.  I will say this S8 was for me personally one of the weakest seasons, hence why I haven't done a countdown of my personal favs and worsts episodes.  Don't know if it's worse then S2 though, but I am glad that Gen 4 is almost done because I feel like they're running out of ideas.  Regardless I still enjoy the show and will check out S9 and I am willing to give Gen 5 a chance too.  We'll see what happens though.  One thing I am OVER THE MOON about this year is one thing coming out in anime.  This year there's going to be a reboot of Fruits Basket, this time with creator Natsuki Takaya being directly involved!  OMG!  Even though I love the original anime, the manga is still my fav out of the two versions because it has a better resolution and includes chars that were missing from the original anime (the story involves people part of the Chinese Zodiac and 2 signs were missing- the horse and the rooster (MY SIGN!)).  One thing I am guessing though is that this anime reboot will have more then one season because the manga is long (originally 23 volumes).  Needless to say I've been waiting for over 10 years for this lol.  Speaking of waiting, I AM HYPED for Kingdom Hearts 3!!  I haven't played any KH game since KH2.  For Christmas I got a PS4 Pro, so I am ready!  (I don't know when I'll get the game because of money issues, but I will get it!)

So I think I've rambled on enough now.  Here's hoping for a good 2019.
Hopefully I get this sucker out before the end of the year lol.  We're up to the 15th Major Arcana, the Devil!

The subject of this card is male and this is one of those times when I had to many ideas but thinking how I wanted to portray the Devil I stuck with one thing- the Devil being manipulative.  Much like the Juggler (Magician), this person knows how to get people to do what he wants.  However the reasons for it are different.  The Devil is suppose to challenge people, mostly emotionally though.  He is very smart and crafty as a result.  Through life we do need people like that because it helps us find out what we are capable of.  So the Devil would also be put in the Chaotic category because he's basically the polar oppose of The Heirophant because he loves throwing people off course.  It's still up to the person to stay on course though.  I do hope this one isn't too much of a challenge for ya'll folks.

List of people I've already done- Lightning Bliss, Josh Scorcher, Persian Poetess, Sweetie Bloom, Brawny Buck, Dr. Wolf, Sega Sister, Voice of Reason, Golden Fox, Buttons, Season, Key Frame, Post Script, Heart Song, Grass Hope, and Bright Idea.

Remember you can make more then one guess.  Best of luck!

German Aries Beer Fest [Bday Gifts]
Title- German Aries Beer Fest
Media- Ink and colored pencils
Series- Zodiac Bdays
Size- 12" x 9"

Aries- March 20- April 19

Wow I haven't touched this series since 2016 lol.  That's because I got burnt out.  I actually started on this picture back in Summer of 2016, but stopped and just worked on it little by little before taking a break in 2017.  Only a few days ago did I hunkered down and continued.  Color scheme wise this was easier then the last one because mostly everyone had primary or neutral colors in their OCs, with the exception of Comic Sans and Sugary.  I hope I got this right but every Brony in this picture was born under the sign of Aries.  I started doing this series when I wanted do group bdays shots and decided to incorporate the Greek Zodiac, which is one of my biggest interests.  Aries is actually the first sign in the Zodiac since Spring is the time of beginnings, it's why the Zodiac starts in the spring.  I actually started this series during the time of Libra so I only have 5 more pictures to go.  However, I want to finish my Tarot Deck so I don't plan on finishing this one just yet.  FYI, there's going to be more then 5 pictures after this one since the signs coming up have more people in it than the others.

Anyway, one of the symbols of Aries is the country of Germany so I had to pick that one, especially since Aries can be a rowdy sign (like all Fire Signs).  Aries are also go getters and tend to be the 'leaders' of the pack.  Out of the fire signs though, they are the most responsible.  Just don't get on their bad side.  Like the other fire signs, they can have short tempers.  In this picture I decided to have BDP and Living Tombstone all buddy up since they do know each other and have worked together in the past.  And yes, everyone is wearing traditional German attire.  Aries' color is red so I made sure it was in throughout the picture.

I hope those featured here like it!
