Happy Hearts Day everyone!!!
Hey party peeps! Happy March. It's time for another updates journal!
I've been rebuilding my channel as you may have read in my last big update. That work still continues today.
A new development has thrown a monkey wrench into my plans though. My camera is having some major troubles. I'm going to go buy a new SD card and see what happens. Regardless of if that works I'm going to be saving up for a new video camera! This has helped me to realize that's it time to update. It all just depends on if I can my current video camera to work again in the meantime.
Thank you so much for your patience! I appreciate your kind comments. I'm doing this preparation to make sure that a hiatus of this time/size is very unlikely to happen again. I am still planning to upload Grave Matters #9 and the first LPSlover Fan Fridays video. It's just been hard since I lost everything and needed to start again.
Xamorah's new feral reference sheet came out about a month ago! I can't tell you how excited I am to finally have her. I've been working on her for a long time and I plan to commission lots of art of her.
As for life updates, I mentioned in my last journal that I write poetry everyday. It's really been helpful for me. I enjoy doing it and I might share some of my poems eventually. For now I want to keep writing without the expectation and pressure of posting them publicly. My health has also been doing better, there's been a few rough patches here and there, but that's to be expected I think.
Thanks for reading! Have an awesome day magical ponies!

Fantasy Xamorah is a good witch studying life and death magic to become a grim reaper after death. She lives with Vyath in a castle where they perform crystal magic, make potions, and cast spells. Together they travel to different realms of their world and go on mystical adventures. Xamorah LOVES water and walks in the rain. She is known to fall asleep while bathing. Her wings come together to make a cape when she's not using them. Constantly coming up with new ideas, stories, and characters. She spends her free time singing, daydreaming and working on her latest magical and creative ventures.
⟡ Heightened Magical Ability- Xamorah's species is highly magical hence the name Magicakat. With their spiral horns and claws, they are able to cast an array of spells naturally.
⟡ Self Regeneration- As long as her magical levels are maintained, Xamorah can regenerate and heal from otherwise deadly wounds due to the amount of magic constantly flowing through her veins.
⟡ Healing Others- Using the merits of her own magic paired with crystals, potions, or other magical artifacts, she is a gifted healer
⟡ Resurrection of the dead- Only to a certain extent. The corpse must be fairly intact. The amount of magic used to resurrect a dead body is huge. She cannot fully resurrect several bodies at once.
⟡ Lighting Powers- Used as an attack/defense and as a means to bring back the dead. She has had to refine this ability over several years due to the difficulty level.

As some of you may know, the computer I used for my videos was having severe problems and I couldn't access any files. I took the hard drive to a shop to have it fixed, and they shipped it over to their main office in Texas. The whole process of recovery was supposed to take only a few weeks at most. A month or so later, they finally email my boyfriend James the worst news ever.
"The package with your hard drive has been lost."
The company has given us no further information and FedEx isn't doing anything about it. Everything is gone until they find it. I've cried a lot and my motivation to do anything plummeted. This was a huge loss, and for more reasons than just this channel. The hard drive held past video projects, unreleased videos, music, sound effects, writing, years of family pictures, and much more. Everything, gone.
Fast forward to now. The package with my hard drive is still missing and nothing new has been said. So, it's time to start fresh. I've been paying the fees to re-download the music I use, working on building my sound effects library back up, writing scripts, cleaning and organizing, and getting ready in general to start uploading again. I've always wanted to post videos more regularly. However, you could say that life has hit me with quite a few curve balls lately. Along with losing the hard drive, my overall health last year was very erratic. It felt like every other week I was in bed sick with some illness or another. At times I've lost my voice, coughed until my chest ached, sneezed my nose off, and other things I won't get into with this post.
I am sincerely touched by the comments on the 10th Year Anniversary video. <3 Like you, I'm super excited to return to Willow Grove and experience what's coming up next. I also think you're really going to like the new things that are currently in the works. I can't say any more at this time but it's going to be awesome! Thank you for your patience during this rather long hiatus. May this new year bring happiness to us all!
10 YEARS ON YOUTUBE August 5th, 2017 marked 10 years on YouTube for this channel. Can you believe it?? LPSlover is ten years old?! HOLY CORN DOGS!

If you've been wondering where I've been, my computer's motherboard DIED!
Yup, haven't had a working computer in months to edit. Supposedly my dad is getting close to fixing it completely, but there's another part coming in the mail. We'll see what happens. I'm hoping that I'll finally be able to upload Grave Matters 9. Fingers crossed, good vibes/prayers are appreciated!
While the computer has been down, I've been filming a ton. A new project is in the works and will be revealed later this year. It's a really big announcement too, so keep an eye out for that. You'll know when you see/hear about it. Also, the 10th year anniversary of LPSlover is approaching! August 5th is LPSlover Day! Woot woot! :3
Episode XVII: The Last Magical Pony
"Turmoil has engulfed the town of Willow Grove. The taxation of trade routes to outlying towns and cities is in dispute. Hoping to resolve the matter with a blockade of deadly battleships, the greedy Trade Federation has stopped all shipping to the small trailer park of Willow Grove. While the Congress of the Republic endlessly debates this alarming chain of events, the Supreme Chancellor has secretly dispatched two A.C.S.I. members, the guardians of peace and justice in Willow Grove, to settle the conflict.... Several surrounding towns have declared their intentions to leave the area. This separatist movement, under the leadership of the mysterious Count Hemlock, has made it difficult for the limited number of A.C.S.I. members to maintain peace and order in Willow Grove. Senator Shaniqua, the former Queen of the Trailer Park, is returning to Town Hall to vote on the critical issue of creating an army of the Duurz to assist the overwhelmed A.C.S.I..... There are heroes on both sides. Evil is everywhere. In a stunning move, the fiendish vampire Veronica has swept into Willow Grove High and kidnapped Chancellor Trinity, leader of the Duurz. As Veronica attempts to flee Willow Grove High with her valuable hostage, two A.C.S.I. members lead a desperate mission to rescue the captive Chancellor.... Pursued by the Empire's sinister agents, Princess Valentine races home aboard her starship, custodian of the stolen plans that can save other pets and restore freedom to Willow Grove.... It is a dark time for the Rebellion. Little does Sparky know that the Rats have secretly begun construction on a super weapon to destroy the Magical Ponies. Years later, Sparky Bolt has vanished. Valentine is desperate to find her boyfriend Sparky and gain his help in restoring peace and justice to Willow Grove, save all Magical Ponies, and stop Veronica and the Rats. Valentine has sent her most daring scout on a secret mission down the Gopher Hole, where an old ally has discovered a clue to Sparky's whereabouts...."

Today is my boyfriend James (Vyath/Jae)'s birthday! ----------->
I would really appreciate if you would go wish him a happy birthday. The link to his page is right here: skybreakerstudios.deviantart.c…
Check out this awesome art that WindWo1f made for us!!!
To James- I'm beyond grateful to have you in my life and I'm so excited to spend a second birthday with you. There will be some awesome cake and ice cream, trust me. I heard plans but I won't say anymore. I know that it's been a stressful month and that this week is one of the most stressful ones either due to graduation but I KNOW you can do it. I'm with you every step of the way. I love you so much!!!!
I'm really moved by this video... I have felt the same things in relation to my own YouTube channel. It can be really scary to think that what you say will affect your fans and those who watch. You have a profound influence, this is true. I feel you should take pride in the fact that you are a positive and uplifting creator. Your fans love you and cherish your work. You don't go around spreading hate! No. Not even close. You spread love and happiness. That's a message to be proud of.
It's true that you may not be able to communicate with each fan directly. You're doing the best you can, and your best is all you can give. That's all any of us can give. Making videos is incredibly stressful. Maintaining relationships is also stressful. There needs to be a balance. You sacrifice one thing for another. That's the reality of life. It is my personal belief that someday you will be able to sit down and personally talk to each of your fans. Even if there's nothing else after this, you can leave this Earth and look back knowing that you touched many people's lives. That you were and still will be cared about.I'd really love to see what you were talking about. Share your passions and do what makes you happy. The best is yet to come Mark. Lots of love! I wish that I could hug you right now. Thank you for inspiring me. I wish you the best!!!
I went to Comic con with , and we had a blast! I even picked up my first Ninetales plushie!!! We also went to see the new Beauty and the Beast, and that was pretty fantastic. I had a few complaints but overall, I thought the film was well done. ALSO, I caught my first ever shiny Pokemon! It was a shiny eevee!!! Not only that, but I ended up catching two shiny eevees in the same night, both of them in under 3 hours of chaining. (It was while James and I were watching Ferris Buehler's Day Off and a few episodes of a TV show.) I plan to evolve my shiny eevees into a shiny Vaporeon and a shiny Sylveon!
On to the video updates!
Yesterday, I opened every letter that has ever come into the LPSlover P.O. box. (This is not including packages.) On Kandy TV #13, it was announced that I would be doing an extension series called "LPSlover Fan Fridays". It will be for opening fan mail, displaying fan art, answering Q&A's, and so on and so forth.
helped me to do some stopmotion to show ALL of the letters for the first LPSlover Fan Friday. We spent all of Sunday filming it so far and it's not even halfway through. (We filmed 31 seconds worth of stopmotion which is a LOT if you know anything about stopmotion XD!) There is so much fan mail... 8 full boxes worth and then some. Hundreds and hundreds more to film. James is a saint! If spending hours helping your girlfriend going through box after box of fan mail isn't true love, then I don't know what is! XD Wish us luck!
I've been sick so things have been put on hold. I'm feeling a lot better now! Kandy TV #14 will still be coming out and the trailer for the return of Grave Matters is on its way. Life is busy so I'm doing the best I can! Thank you to those who follow me and your kind words. Your support means a lot to me.
Note: For those of you who are curious about featured fan art on LPSlover Fan Fridays, you are welcome to link to a piece of fan art you've already done/made recently in the comments with what you'd want to be credited as. For example, if I submitted a fan art I'd post the link then say "I'd like to be credited as LPSlover." Or "By: LPSlover". (Something along those lines.)
