How long have you been on DeviantArt?
Almost 8 years, but this account has been around for 5 years.
What does your username mean?
It's a mix of Setsuna and Mightyena. Setsuna was my first rp character for a Pokemon group, which I specifically made this account to use for. The Yena because she is a Mightyena xD Though I have considered to change my name to Setsu-The-Yena.
Describe yourself in three words.
Are you left or right handed?
What is your favourite type of art to create?
I love character designing and also designing clothes.
If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
Copic markers, please. I wish I knew how to use them properly. Also sculpting!
What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
Usually stuff with my own OC's or of the OC's of my friends.
How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
It has impacted me a lot. I have gained some real bestest friends from here. I am not kidding that some of them are like family me. Even closer and mean more to me than some of my blood relatives. I would do anything for them and is ever grateful I got to know them. You guys know who you are
What are your preferred tools to create art?
What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
Probably my room. Peace and quiet. The rest of the house is so noisy. Even my dog goes in here, to get some peace.
What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
Ouh I got quite a couple! It's too hard to just pic one xD
The first 10 people who comment on this journal will get a feature here, showing off some of the deviations in your gallery,that I like most.
In turn you must submit a journal like this, and give me the first slot of the 10 features!
"The idea is not to get a free feature, but spread the art around to everyone on DA to enjoy and love!"
1) One of my bestest online buddies! Very very dear to me The wonderful creator of Tacco, that's half the part of one of my fav OTP's~ She got some seriously gorgeous art and I'm especially loving her inking style and backgrounds~
2) Another online bestie~ And also owner of no less than two halfs of OTP's too~ Amazing artist! Both good with digital, but also very talented with traditional.
TDW needs you! (CLOSED! Deciding-) We're now closed for new leader applications and will start going through the entries and will work on who to choose. Thanks to everyone who applied~
We're now opening up to two new leader spots, as both Hikaru and Bliss have decided to follow new paths and therefore, the Reliability and Kindness crests are open for new leaders.
Of course we'll like some specific qualities in a new Leader, so if you can say 'yes' to the following statements, you might be our new co-leader soon!
.: What we need for our new co-leader.:
First of all that you're willing to take on the Reliability or Kindness Crest for your character. If you're not a member yet, you can create a character with either shard. If you're already an existing member, you may switch out your shard and faction to fit one of the two and Astra instead.
You'll be able and got time to help us out with planning and creating events. Both coming up with ideas and help out with the pratical stuf
Have a lovely time~
If your OCs were Pokemon, what TYPE would they be?
Got tagged by evil mastermind for this 8I
For as many of the Pokemon types listed below, list any of your OCs that you think would fit that type.
You can do this based on if you associate them with a particular element, or even if they use said element (I.E. they have a weapon or special powers of that nature)
Do not be afraid to list one OC under multiple types if you feel you need to. Likewise, don't feel you need to fill up all of the types; if you don't think any of your characters match a particular type, then no worries.
This goes without saying but NO FAKEMON ALLOWED!!
Since I will use only characters I atively rp with, I will revers the situation and list my characters then tell their types XD
Ruby: Hmm... Fighting/Ice
Gwen: Hmm... Steel/Ice
Setsuna: Derp Dark xD
Angel: Fairy =v=
And I taaaag...

A new year has passed and what a year;
I won't go too much into details, but I had a really hard time during the first half of this year. Mental things started to bother me a lot and I got both things like stress and anxiety on a level where I needed some mild medication.
I was very mentally unstable and some days, I couldn't even stand to get out of my bed. We had to move and I had to move back home to my father, due to my mental things and because I had no new roomies to move in somewhere with + no money to pay for a new place to move into.
Had to drop out of school only a month in, due to too much absence and life was in general a struggle until I started a new education in September and also got an income again.
I was still happy to draw this entire time though and I felt it helped me a lot with keeping my thoughts distracted. Also talking and rp'ing with wonderful peeps here online, who were always supportive and took time out of their life to listen to my thoughts. Thank you ;V;~~
I already got much better in September, when I started in school again. It isn't quite near my dream education, but it's fine and it gives me a good income and some really good chances for a job afterwards. I have met a few awesome people in school too (despite being 10 years older than me) and it has all in general made my future look more bright and made it more clear and secure, as a big stress and anxiety factor for me was the fear of the future. I also quit my medication around the same time and hasn't needed it since. I have had 2-3 incidents where I got a mild breakdown, but nothing serious a bit of sleep couldn't help out with.
The school isn't hard at all aaaand I'm not too afraid to tell I got a bunch of A+ at my last tests, while the teacher is also calling my friends and I the 3 best in class, herp derp, shameless bragging.
2014 was also my first experience sitting in an Artist Alley during a convention. A friend asked if anyone wanted to share a table with them and I thought it could be fun. I often attend conventions, but my number of irl friends is very limited, so I mostly just come to watch the cosplay shows and then just derps around the rest of the weekend. So thought an Artist Alley was a fine way to keep me busy + also give me a chance to get some money, since I had no school or job to earn me money around the time.
I did overestimate how much I needed to bring xD Definitely had over half of my stuff left afterwards, but I still earned way more than I had hoped I would! It was a real learning experience and I met some really nice people there <3 It was definitely something I wanted to try again, so I have already signed up and getting ready for a new Artist Alley in February 2015.
So having looked back at 2014, how does 2015 look so far? Well. Quite good.
I'm highly counting on finishing my current education in October and hopefully, with some good grades, I'll be allowed to move on to the next stage of it and have another 1½ year with school, before I'm fully done and can get a job. Nothing is guaranteed. Many are applying and with a limited number of students getting in, only the best will make it. Though if I can do well during my internship and keep getting these good grades, it shouldn't be a problem.
Also looking forward to more Artist Alley experiences~ First the one in February, but I'm also counting on trying to get a spot in 2 others throughout the year <3 Hopefully do as well or even better than the last time. Now also with a much lower limit on how much I'll bring + all my leftover stuff xD
Though the biggest thing and the one I'm looking the most forward to is my trip to the USA to visit the ever wonderful <3~~ I'll be there for 3 weeks and will even have my birthday over there, not to speak of meeting Rina in real life x'D I can't wait, aaahh >w<!! I wanna try eat so much different stuff we don't have here and just see stuff and in general relax and have a nice calm vacation. Have good times with Rina *cough*andalldemcutecatstoo*cough*.
Though I'm also very nervous about the trip; It's very far away from lil' Denmark and it'll be my first time EVER to fly on my own. I got a fear of both heights and airplanes, so going that far on my own is scary xD Also knowing the US should be rather strict with their security in the airports, I'm super scared they'll turn me down once I get there and for whatever reason send me back, ahaha xD;
I think that's all for now. A happy new year too ya all x3~

Welp welp welp, got tagged by the evil genius , so here we go xD Pretty simple. It's a list of my OC's, you can use for any sort of giftart. Not meaning someone needs to make it xD But christmas around the corner and my birthday eventually, it could be practical to do this anyway, since peeps usually request it for my burfday :3
And to copy Hikai:
"So from DA's side I'd love to see any of my oc's in anyone's style, doesn't matter the skill of the individual or medium they use! *V*"
OTP art will be looooved
(please do remember their height difference~)
Aaand art with "others" x'D
(These three are not couples, but do like to do "stuff" with each other. Either paired up or all three together )
Feel free to draw my OC's with yours too ovo/ Just not any lovey dovey stuff, unless we have talked about it, as some might be paired up with someone else already or yea... I would just like to know before peeps randomly might pair up my OC's with theirs, without any development between them at all first xD;; Awkward;

Lovely Rina-ran is making a raffle! Go check it out x3
YCH Reference Sheet Raffle- WTF FA!Freaking kidding me... ready to do this raffle and freaking FA suffers a DDoS attack?! Talk about throwing off my groove! D<
Ugh... guess this raffle will have to wait until FA gets up again... cause it would be unfair seeing that a bigger percentage of the people who joined did it through there...
Just...wow.... what timing.
I'll continue taking entries here. So more time to those who happen to wander by.
Last Day tomorrow. Raffle happens when I get home. Guess not!
Since there's not that many participants, the numbers have been combined with the ones entering on FurAffinity. That's why I can't just go by the journal favorites number like some raffle holders do....
Also, you all will receive 2 more numbers once it's time to hold the raffle. Because you advertised... and on FA, it's against the ToS to require the advertising of the raffle. So I'm giving people who advertise there 2 more numbers since I'm not getting q

10 Things About Me:
1: I got a thing for snowflakes. Just everything with snowflakes on, I need it! Christmas is the best time of the year for me to go snowflake crazy!
2: The school I'm in now is probably the best I have been in yet. My grades have never been better and I actually like ALL the teachers and most of the lessons. Too bad I won't be allowed to continue this summer without an apprentice spot, which I most probably won't get.
3: As soon as I got the money and a steady job and place to live, I shall have a welsh corgi pembroke and open my own kennel! I really want to breed corgis and go to dog shows! Considering to get a second breed next to it... Maybe Alaskan Malamute.. Hm.
4: I hate people commenting on my height.... A lot.... It's the worst. Just. Don't. I know I'm small, hurray for you finally finding someone smaller than yourself, yippey. Now go jump off a bridge, please.
5: I'm TERRIBLE at wanting not to bother others; I got a general fear of it; I just can't stand to bother people in any imaginable way! It by my presence alone or anything I do, really!
6: I bought a little orchid last summer aaaand it's still alive! I usually kill off plants quick, but this one is really persistent! I'm taking good care of it too.
7: I'm feeling very alone and lonely lately;; Anxiety stuff have come and started to bug me a lot |D; Pretty much each night, especially when I'm alone; Also helps I only got 2 IRL friends, and that's because we live together.. Until we move out in a few months. VERY scared and uncomfortable about that;;
8: I'm obsessed with the song "Let It Go" from Frozen at the moment. I love it. I love the movie too xD
9: I'm highly considering starting to gymnastics! My roomies friend talked me into driving her there and asked if I wanted to come and try out. I came and really thought it was fun! My muscles do not quite agree xD I definitely count on joining again next wednesday and continue on with it!
10: I got a serious problem with people pushing me. Especially from behind. I cannot have this! Even if meant in a good way, but I just... NO! Don't do it! I will put my heels down and not move an inch, until you stop pushing! Just don't!
Nooo no not at all. I have never tried it xD
Uhmmm I wash my hair... At a normal rate and brush it ono Gets my split ends fixed once in a while. My skin.. Dun get much care either. Simple baths and scrubbing face with water in the morning. Nails.. Nah neither. I actually bite my nails xD; But I usually take more care of my skin and nails when a convention is coming up.
Uhmmm I got this perfume I like to use once in a while.. But I don't know how to describe it xD A normal lady perfume like thing xD
Spade! I dun know why, but I just always have preferred that one over the others ono
My roomie's daim cake!
A fountain. I don't like the rain much; My hair gets so greasy when it gets wet without any shampoo added afterwards; With a fountain, it'll be on purpose.
A flat baseball bat. I stood behind the one swinging and he hit my chest. Knocking the air out of my lungs, so I just laid there and snapped for air.
I'm not a huge fan of hugs and the likes in general; But I sure would prefer it from the front.
Not really one over the other... Maybe mind.
I'm actually rather comfortable with myself. Could lose a little weight, but not something I worry about. BUT! I would LOVE to be taller. I hate to be this small.
For tagged peeps:
1: Do you ever start thinking about the future and does it worry you at all? Or are you completely chill and takes it as it comes?
2: Have you ever cosplayed before? Or have you considered it?
3: Do you like to watch the Oscars, Golden Globe and such awards shows?
4: Do you know what Eurovision is? If yes, do you watch it?
5: If you had the choice to represent your country in the Olympics, what discipline would it then be?
6: What's the worst thing you have done while drunk?
7: Are you the night owl type that gets very little sleep, even for busy days, or are you the "early to bed, early to rise" type?
8: A classic. Cats or dogs and why?
9: Do you use glasses or contacts?
10: How is humanity going to die one day?

5. How does he move? Is he clumsy, graceful, tense, fluid?

6. How attractive is this character physically? How does he perceive himself in the mirror?
She's rather confident of her looks, and wouldn't be afraid to categorize herself as beautiful. She's fit, got a nice skin color, curves and long pretty hair.. Until she remembers her height. She feels it makes her look rather unfeminine, and more like some big amazon warrior instead.
7. Describe his complexion. Dark, light, clear, scarred?
It's dark and clear.
8. Describe his hair: color, texture, style.
It's black with a shade of dark brown, if seen in the sun. Except one tuft she have dyed blue and wears as a braid. It's very thick and soft to touch. Her healthy diet makes it in a good condition. It's usually rather wavy, but she straightens it out a bit each morning, as the other style reminds her too much of her mother. Mostly worn in a ponytail, but is on special occasions down.
9. What color are his eyes?
An icy blue color. The same as her braid.
10. Does the character have any other noteworthy features?
Well not really, except her height and very blue eyes, that stands out from her darker skin.
11. What are his chief tension centers?
12. What is the character's wardrobe like? Casual, dressy, utilitarian? Bright colors, pastels, neutrals? Is it varied, or does he have six of the same suit?
She likes to wear more.. "Sporty" and tomboyish kind of clothes. Or so she thinks. It often turns out to look rather feminine. She'll gladly wear clothes too that exposes her midriff. She's very much fan of small shorts and various kinds of tops. When it comes to colors, she'll usually be wearing black and blue colors. She have many various outfits, for different weathers and occasions.
13. Do his clothes fit well? Does he seem comfortable in them?
It can be hard to find clothes in her size, due to height, so sometimes her clothes might be a liiiiittle too tight. Though usually she's able to find ones that fits very well and that she's comfortable in.
14. Does he dress the same on the job as he does in his free time? If not, what are the differences?
Well her jobs are as a samba and capoeira instructor, so it's not very different from her daily clothes. Tight sitting and easy to move in.
15. You knew it was coming: Boxers, briefs or commando?
Uh.... Panties xD
1. What does this character's voice sound like? High-pitched, deep, hoarse?
She sounds like dis lady. Sometimes she can have a smaaaaaaaaaall tiny spanish or british accent. --> www.youtube.com/watch?v=5UD0Rj…
2. How does he normally speak? Loud, soft, fast, evenly? Does he talk easily, or does he hesitate?
She's usually determined in her words and talks easily. She would only hesitate around Tacco, since he makes her a bit nervous. She can be a little loud, but only if she gets into arguments or is excited. Normally she'll talk very fluidly and in a normal speed. It also depends on who she's speaking to. When someone she doesn't like, it'll be more cold.
3. Does the character have a distinct accent or dialect? Any individual quirks of pronunciation? Any, like, you know, verbal tics?
She got a smaaaaaaaall tiny Portuguese or british accent from time to time. It varies, and is almost not noticeable.

She's fluently in Portuguese and English. She knows a little German, but isn't fluent. She have traveled a lot and have learned a few simple lines in different languages.
5. Does he switch languages or dialects in certain situations?
If really really REALLY upset, she might start cursing in Portuguese.

She's a rather good speaker. Only around Tacco, she sometimes have to think her words through, before daring to speak.
7. Is he eloquent or inarticulate? Under what circumstances might this change?
She's more eloquent, but can change if put under stress or big anger or sadness.
Mental and Emotional
1. How intelligent is this character? Is he book-smart or street-smart?
Ruby would prolly be called street-smart. She haven't done anything educational after high school, and have focused on sports instead. So she got an average intelligence. Depends on subject too.

On her feet.

8. How does he respond to new people or situations? Is he suspicious, relaxed, timid, enthusiastic?
She's not very interested in new people, mostly. She have lacked good social interaction in many years of her life, and have mostly been used to being on her own and with Ciermon.

1. Describe this character's relationship with his parents.
Bad with very bad on top. She never knew her dad, but her relationship with her mom is reaaaaal bad. Her mother got into a depression, because of her husbands death, and couldn't take care of Ruby the first 2 years. For some reason, she decided to take Ruby with her anyway, once she had recovered and could start working again. She never acknowledged Ruby or anything she did. Leaving her in the care of teachers and nannies. Ruby did everything she could to try impress her and win her love. Good grades, good manners, excel in sports. Being praised by everyone else but her mother. In her eyes, she could always do better than that. Not even able to look her daughter straight in the eyes as "she reminds her of the man she lost." In the end, Ruby grew to hate her and lose all kinds of respect towards her. Leaving home for good, when she was 17.
2. Does the character have any siblings? What is/was their relationship like?
3. Are there other blood relatives to whom he is close? Are there ones he can't stand?
Well she definitely can't stand her mother. She was raised by her grandmother (from her father's side of the family) the first 2 years, while her mother was hospitalized for her depression. She was an old lady though, and died short before Ruby's mom took her back. She have never had a close relationship with her family. She hardly knew her father's, as Ruby's mom was "done with anything that had to do with him" and didn't allowed Ruby to see them. She kinda liked her mother's part of the family. She met them on occasions, when they were in England, but it would always be very short as they had to move on fast. So no. She isn't really close to any of them. She have tried getting in touch with her father's family, after she moved away from home. Though she got no real clue on how and where to find them in Brazil. They were in the more poor end of society, and wasn't the kind you just could look up in registers.
4. Are there other, unrelated people whom he considers part of his family? What are his relationships with them?
She highly considers Ciermon and Diego her family. They have been with her always and actually cared about her. She sees Ciermon as a kind of brother, and she wouldn't call Diego "just a pet" either. They're both very special to her. Ciermon and she got their fights, but they always got each others back, and can trust each other 100%. After Tacco and she got together, she would also look upon him as being a part of her family, along with Pealkmon. Pealk is that cute lil' sister, and Tacco is her lover... Aaaaand hopefully eventually husband, if things turns out the way she wants~
5. Who is/was the character's best friend? How did they meet?
That would be Ciermon. They have been together forever. Ciermon's egg and digivce was laying by Ruby's crib, the day she were born. So they have been together forever. It's said that Digimons comes to their partners, when they're most needed and welp. Ruby needed him right from the start.
6. Does he have other close friends?
It would be Tacco. He's her boyfriend and she is very close to him.
7. Does he make friends easily, or does he have trouble getting along with people?
It varies. Sometimes she can get into fights with people from the start and other times, it goes more smoothly.
8. Which does he consider more important: family or friends?
Well her friends are her family, so that would be friends.
9. Is the character single, married, divorced, widowed? Has he been married more than once?
She's in a relationship with Tacco.
10. Is he currently in a romantic relationship with someone other than a spouse?
Uh... Well she's with Tacco, but they aren't married. Yet. eve~
11. Who was his first crush? Who is his latest?
Her first crush was a guy from high school. He was a member of the soccer team, and she had admired him from a distance for a time. She was unlucky that her secret slipped out, and overheard how some of his team mates told him that Ruby had a crush on him. In which he responded that he and no other guy ever would love some freakishly tall amazon warrior like her.
Her latest crush was on Tacco Kilewekeli. Another tamer on campus. They met at the pool almost 2 years ago, and got along right from the start. She quick got to like him and had a crush on him for a long time. Afraid to be rejected because of her height and her lack of confidence in being feminine, she didn't told him, before the New Years Ball 2012. Luckily her feelings were returned from Tacco's side, and they have not too long ago become an official couple.
12. What does he look for in a romantic partner?
Someone she can trust and who makes her feel good about herself. Where she doesn't have to be afraid of being herself around him. She thought she liked the big confident and strong athlete type, but soon after meeting Tacco, figured she were more into the gentle and bit shy kind of guy. Maybe she would like him to be a little more confident in himself and dominating in their relationship, but he's slowly growing, just as she is.
13. Does the character have children? Grandchildren? If yes, how does he relate to them? If no, does he want any?
She certainly wants kids. Several! She felt lonely without siblings during her childhood, and wouldn't want the same for them. Going to spoil them rotten and give them the love her mother never gave her.
14. Does he have any rivals or enemies?
Not any in particular.
15. What is the character's sexual orientation? Where does he fall on the Kinsey scale?
She would be a 0. She have never felt attracted to other females, and sees herself as a straight out heterosexual.
16. How does he feel about sex? How important is it to him?
Well.. She have never tried it, so |D; But she have kinda tried to push Tacco in that direction and make it clear to him, that they'll have to do it eventually. She believes something intimate as sex is important for a good and healthy relationship, as it brings the partners closer together in a way they couldn't without it. So poke poke. Tacco, get into gear |D Though Ruby know how shy Tacco is, and is rather sure nothing is going to happen before she takes the first step, and gets them started.
17. What are his turn-ons? Turn-offs? Weird bedroom habits?
Turn-offs would be those player guys who thinks they're all "that". A gift to women. Those makes her sick. For turn-ons she likes the gentleman type. Someone who treats her well and with respect. A big turn-on is also a very well shaped and fit torso. Fit guy in bath trunks or boxers are good. She's a rather dominating person herself, so she would like a guy who can "surprise" her and suddenly take over her dominant role, in bed.

She's a Virgo. It partly fits her.
2. Is this character religious, spiritual, both, or neither? How important are these elements in his life?
She's not really religious in any way. She was raised in a christian home, but it was never important to her. She believes more in spirits of nature and that there is "something".
3. Does this character have a personal code of morals or ethics? If so, how did that begin? What would it take to compromise it?
If you promise something, you better god damn keep it. Ruby would never promise something she wasn't a 100% sure of she could keep. She highly looks down on disloyalty too.
4. How does he regard beliefs that differ from his? Is he tolerant, intolerant, curious, indifferent?
Very tolerant. She doesn't really care about these kind of things. She don't want people to try push their believes over on her, though.
5. What prejudices does he hold? Are they irrational or does he have a good reason for them?
She doesn't really have any.
1. What is the character's financial situation? Is he rich, poor, comfortable, in debt?
Well she's somewhere in between comfortable / rich. She got a couple of sponsors, for sports, and gets money from them. She also works and gets money in that way. So she's living a fine life and is even considering to move out of the campus dorms, to something bigger. She hopes to soon be official a professional athlete, so she can get some real cash in.
2. What is his social status? Has this changed over time, and if so, how has the change affected him?
She have been down graded a bit, after she moved out. Her mother was from British high society and a very acknowledged Ballerina, so she had plenty of money to go around. Putting Ruby in the higher class of society as well. She got not a single penny when she moved out, and became more of a "commoner". She took on her father's family name when moving out, and gets therefore no recognition for her mother's status, even though she is the next heir to the family fortune, after her mother.
3. Where does he live? House, apartment, trailer? Is his home his castle or just a place to crash? What condition is it in? Does he share it with others?

Various sports supplies mostly. Her stuff gets worn out very fast. Then spend at various times when Tacco and she are out. She's trying to figure out a birthday present for him at the moment.
5. What does he do for a living? Is he good at it? Does he enjoy it, or would he rather be doing something else?
She usually the Leader of Courage, but she gets no money from that |D So she works as a capoeira and samba teacher. + she gets money from sponsors for doing sports.
6. What are his interests or hobbies? How does he spend his free time?
She doesn't have that much free time, as a lot of it goes to sports. Though when she decided to have a short day, she'll usually try meet up with Tacco and spend time with him. If not able to, she'll go out for walks with Diego or watch Olympics videos on Youtube.
7. What are his eating habits? Does he skip meals, eat out, drink alcohol, avoid certain foods?
She got a very healthy diet and sticks to the "3 big meals and 3 snacks" scheme. She takes in a lot of energy drinks though to keep herself going throughout the day. She stays away from sugary and fat food. Her body is her temple, and as an athlete, have to take care of it.
