About Divergent DaysSo, I will be posting chapter 3 of DD on fimfic soon, which is where the fic itself begins to "change" from the original version. I know many of you enjoyed what I had already done with it, but after two years of thinking, plotting, and more MLP episosdes, I've had more ideas and better ways to execute scenes. Plus, I like to think my writing has improved.
That being said, I will be removing DD from dA every time I upload the next chapter on fimfic here. There is the link to it, so if you wanna keep track of it's progress then go there. And since it has been two years, I would recommend re-reading it as I post it there, for it will be going through changes.
Good news!I woke up this morning, which means I survived my birthday!
I just wanted to say thank you all who wished me a happy birthday. I've been watching M*A*S*H again, so for my birthday me and my friends played poker and drank... well, I drank... but in true M*A*S*H fashion! So, hopefully I'll be gettin' some work done with fics over on fimfic.
Divergent Days!A young mare approached me the other day, asking "ROB, just what has happened to your magnificent fan fiction called Divergent Days?" I explained to her how I've been busy with planning the Fillidelphia ruins salvaging. And she nodded, smiling the entire time, gaining my trust. Of course, she only did this in an attempt to get near me so she could attack me with a crude dagger she had carved out of stolen scrap metal. Needless to say, her attempt failed her. But did I have her killed? No, I did not. I sent her to the pit, where she could-
wait... oh yeah, derp... Been listening to my Fallout Equestria audiobooks again... anyway.
Welp, it's finally begun! The first chapter of Divergent Days is finally up on fimfiction.net! http://www.fimfiction.net/story/168110/divergent-days
I know many of you have been asking, pestering, wondering, begging, crying and curling into a ball at night in anticipation for when I'd ever get to finishing the fic. Well, I'm still quite a bit far from ac
CMCon!"Hey ROB, where the hell have you been?"
Well faithful watcher, I've been busy. Writing? Pfft, hell no. I've not done jack shit in like a year. I'm still amazed people are even watching me. Anyway, so in case you may think that I just don't write, or don't want to, that's not it at all actually. I'm actually writing still! Am I posting anything? No, 'cause 99% of it isn't really "post-worthy" at this time. Mostly it's all ideas, concepts, and horribly rough drafts. For quite some time, I've just been so tired after working at both my job, with my father, and going to school, I don't really do much other than play some video games on occasion with my friends.
I'm trying to get one of these fics post worthy. But well, only time will tell.
Now, to what this is actually about.
I'M GOING TO CMCon AT THE END OF MAY! In... Colombus, Ohio? I think so... anyway, yea I'm going. If you'd like to talk to me or say hello, keep an eye out for a big guy with a red/black pladd hat with two Maci
Thank you all!So, just wanted to say thank you to everyone for the birthday wishes, fan art, and lightbulb pics you sent me! It means a lot to know that even though I'm a wash up people still care. As a reward, I'm hoping to get a little one shot I've worked on out and posted. I can't promise it will be all that great, but well it's been too long since I've done anything, and I really, really hate it. When life gets in the way though, what can you really do? I guess not much...
Also, this would have been out sooner, but with my birthday and St. Patty's day on a single weekend... well, lets just say, my room has a lot of empty Sunkist and Whiskey bottles...
What I wouldn't give for a lightbulbFrustration.
All these emotions, and more, are what I am feeling right now. It all began several hours ago, when my last lightbulb burnt out. So, what does a sensible man do? Not what I do, anyway. I scrounged all my spare lamps, but alas, they too were bulbless! I was, officially, out of lightbulbs. So that meant then I had to do what any sensible man would, and that's go to the store and buy some lightbulbs.
Now, I'm not sure how you all are, but personally I'm not a huge fan of the florecent, swirly bulbs that are everywhere. They have their uses, yes, but for general use I like a normal incandescent light bulb. They come on instantly, they're just the right brightness, and better yet for outdoor use they actually make heat (great for when it's snowing and the wind is blowing, helps keep the snow from building on the bulb). BUT TO MY SURPRISE, WHEN I WENT DOWN THE LIGHTBULB AISLE IN THE HARDWARE STORE, THERE WERE NO INCANDESCENT BULBS TO BE SEEN. Only
MLP Gameloft gameSoooooo... it just recently got put out on the android market for smart phones. It's a lot of fun, actually. Though I gotta admit, I laughed way harder than I should have when I performed a sonic rainboom with Macintosh in that flying game. So yea, would you kindly add me to your gameloft friend list? Because to get more of those stupid hearts I gotta add people 'n such. Can you guess my name? If not... that's just sad.
Preparing for moving day!That is, from deviant Art to Fimfiction.net for all of my fictions!
No offense to dA, but fimfiction's writing format is much easier to use and work with. I'll never fully abandon my roots here. I'll still use dA for my updates in journals, or when I'm streaming. I'll still also check on messages, comments, and the such.
http://www.fimfiction.net/user/ROBCakeran53 There is my fimficion account, so if you wish to continue following me for my stories (because what else do I do here?) then I highly recommend keeping better track there.
With this also being stated, I will be slowly moving "Divergent Days" to fimfic while I am doing some last minute edits and such, so I can continue it's story. For the five of you who read "Luna's Gift", a one off one shot I did a year ago, that too will be making it's move there, again after some revision and a possible continuation of the story since it was originally intended to be longer.
Welp, I think that's about it. Expect to see the next update to "

Baldi Basic Animatic Storyboard PreviewNew Animatic of Baldi Basic, Soon! And With colors!
The Characters in there are my OCS Henry and Ellie of my Series called "Send From Above"
I added them because... they are Childs duuuh
Well, i hope you like it
My Opinion On My YouTube/DeviantART FanbaseYeah, uh..it's not that bad, first of all. Sure, most of my YT fans are actually nice to me.
But when it comes to character redesigns, title changes, and name changes?? Hohohoho, some of them can even leave me.
Does it piss me off? No. Does it sadden me? No. Does it make me happy? Yes. They can do what they want, I don't really give a shit.
It's called having opinions, and I respect that. But don't fucking bash me into animating/drawing something I don't want to draw/animate anymore.
Let me do what I want. I'm not going to do what you want anymore because, honestly? I'm not listening to young triggered children anymore. I'm getting older, and it's time for me to face it.
This entire summer was literally just me going through so many character development phases, and some kids leaving me doesn't bother me at all lmao.
But here is way different. I can express myself more, I can share my opinions on certain things, I can talk to my fans, and I can get less pissed off here.
Updates~First of all, thanks everyone for your help ;w;
Thank you for your donations, thanks for sharing the journal, thanks for caring, and for your kind words too...

Fortunately, everything went well with the surgery. We had help from our family too and could pay the hospitalization and surgery in time. My dad is now resting and recovering at my sister's house, while mom is taking care of him. Due to our circumstances I will be working to bring some money and also pay the house... pfft I finally feel like an adult xD it sucks... jkjk
It was an exhausting week at the hospital, but finally "I'm back" kind of? I will use a day every week to answer your messages and maybe leave an update. Right now, they're a lot for me to answer right away. Thanks a lot to my commissioners for being SO patient with little me specially you Beelze idk if you're reading but hgng I'm thankfu
Happy 15th Birthday!In April I wrote a post reflecting on my 15 years at DeviantArt, since the project began in April of 2000 and was launched to the public on August 7th. I went back and re-read what I wrote, and wow, speaking of audacious I'm pretty hardcore in this post. I write from my heart sometimes and then I hit post and that's that. So for our official 15th Birthday I wanted to re-share a link to that post:
And then today, I wrote this reflection for you as a toast & thanks for all the llamas:
Happy 15th Birthday DeviantArt! We are evolving, and soon we will be able to share exactly how you can be a part of our transformation, ensuring that the DeviantArt we all love grows stronger in supporting the visual & written arts for 15 more years to come! You will soon see us release many years of effort, repositioning DeviantArt from all we have learned over our 15 years of managing the worlds largest creator community.

And much more topics that are about human kindness! Warms up my heart to see how much you guys care about others!

Collective Feature #21UPDATES:
Not much news to share, it's been a quiet week. Tyler is over in California for training or whatever for a couple of months. Fingers crossed they'll grant him leave in July.
The weather is finally acting more like spring, with 60 degree days and sunshine, so hopefully the cold weather is done for.
I am still looking for character sheets for my characters from the story I want to continue. Note me if you know anyone who can
The same "rules" apply as they did last time. Throughout every photography category in my favorites, I will choose 10 entries (usually the first 10 that show up, or I begin where I left off) that'll be featured. With every category, I keep a record of who is featured, that way no name gets repeated twice in one category. Only one entry per category.
If you have any specific photo that fits into one of the categories that you want to be featured (yours or someone else's), pleas
