I've had a very, very, very long time to... "heal", so to speak. So I'm here because I have seen your messages and comments, even though I said I had left... I tend to have nostalgia trips and return to things of the past. So I wound up here. And I felt like explaining and sharing to those still around. And that first sentence will make more sense if you're interested in reading what will probably be a decently long journal.

I last posted that I was leaving this account, starting over and not telling anyone(seriously, I only told two people) because I wanted a fresh start. I said I had lost interest in past projects and wanted to do new things, yada yada. Kinda sorta? I did want a new username, and I wanted to try new things, but...

I wasn't telling the entire truth.

I told people I was busy, moving on and starting up my own business venture... which wasn't a lie, but I basically clung to that as an excuse to... escape. See, I don't like sharing drama because I feel like... people don't want to hear it... it's no one's business but my own and there's two sides to every story and such and I just... don't vent. So I didn't tell anyone. I just ran away because I couldn't stay in this place with all these connections to what happened.

I won't go into details, because this whole situation took place over the course of almost an entire year. It was because of a certain individual whom I will not name, who I thought had been a friend. They were everything but that. I was in a bad place, and this person didn't help, at all. In fact, they were making it worse. I could make a mile-long list of how terrible of a person they were, but I'll just simply leave it at that. I went into something of a depression. I felt like I was running on fumes, crawling into bed hours before I normally slept just so I could get a little time away from what was becoming a living nightmare. I remember trying to watch funny videos just to make myself feel happy, only to have this heavy weight just continuously crushing me.

And it's weirdly pokemon related. I know, what the huh? It sounds silly, but I could hardly look at pokemon without those heavy thoughts returning to me. Yet again, I don't want to go into detail, even though it's hard to explain without giving too much, you know? I don't want to oust anyone and I want to stress that it was only this ONE individual who was the entire cause of my misery. So yeah, we were hugely pokenerds, and the whole situation was pokemon themed. Nearly twenty years of being a pokemon fan and I suddenly... wasn't. I left the pokemon fandom, all because of... well, it was nearly a whole year. So it was just a great big build up of... poop.

So anyway, that's the vague explanation of why I left. I was stuck in a hole and instead of climbing out, I flew out. Gone with the wind, baby!

There's a happy ending though, other than me making folks sad because I was leaving(which will shortly be rectified). I've been away for roughly a year and a half and I've been super happy! And this time, it's not a lie. I actually played a pokemon game a little while ago... and enjoyed it(which, crazily enough, was something I couldn't do around the time of Sun and Moon without remembering dark things)! I've hardly posted anything on my new username, but that's because I found a new passion(and also broke my old tablet)... or... something new that I'm passionate about, helped me re-discover something that I was previously passionate about years ago...

That sounded better in my head. So much for being a writer...? I apparently like writing things. A LOT. Which was a discovery that hit me like a ton of bricks when I started writing a fanfiction, of all things. Yeah, at any rate, I don't do wolves and pokemon anymore(or flash games(I've been looking at this wondrous thing called "java")). I'm all about dragons and...

Fabu-horses? Adora-ponies? I'll just go with the more popular, SQUEEEEEEEEEE!

Yup. LITTLE WOMBAT'S A PEGASISTER, WHO KNEW? I DEFINITELY DIDN'T KNOW! SURPRISED ME TOO! WELL, MAYBE NOT REALLY. IT'S GOT DRAGONS AND MAGIC AND FANTASY AND CUTE THINGS AND I'M GONNA STOP TYPING IN CAPS NOW...

There was a void that needed filling, and apparently I forgot to cement in that hole I flew out of. But luckily it was filled with super-soft ponies and rainbows.

TL;DR - My "new"(it's technically old at this point) username is LaWombat. :iconlawombat: if you're still interested.

Okay, NOW I'm leaving this account and never coming back(unless there are questions). nn7 See you on the flip-side!

How in the world did I end up with more watchers than when I left?

I don't know you but that sucks. Glad you're doing better now though.
On that note... I came here from DivineDolls, and was wondering if there was something wrong with your Wolf Maker? It won't load at all.

It might be a site issue, maybe? I haven't made any updates to the games themselves for a couple of years now, so they shouldn't have changed since then. Last I checked, the ones available here in my gallery still work.

Thank you for replying.
You may be right.
I'll check it real quick to see if it's updated.
It still seems to not be working.

So, not to sound stupid because I totally am, but why would the game and your gallery be connected?
I mean, I know you made them and all but like, I'm confused....

Huh, weird. The games wouldn't be connected though, they're two separate files. Ironically, I'm not a very techy person, but I might assume it could be the browser. I occasionally have problems running flash player with chrome.

I did manage to get the one on dolldivine to work though, I just had to disable my ad blocker. The ones on dolldivine have an ad plugin that the ones on dA do not have.

So sad to see you leave. I just found your DA! I know it's super late, but I wish I knew your new DA too because I'd love to see what new things you come up with
