  • Why Hello Again, If you are reading this I was not Tf'ed into a Scalie all jokes aside, after getting the first covid shot I wanted to put this update out for one small thing I wanted to mention about my writing.

    The wolf related one and it's seasons are test runs for how well I can do story telling (and Judging by my page views) it was a very good experiment. I also wanted to say that there will be similar stories in the same magic timeline with a sequel series down the pipeline with two other stories similar to this wolf related project to hopefully be posted some time later on in the year with not that long of a hiatus between each project.

    The only things I can say regarding their names is- Rebels/Heroes of Gaia (2020-2021) Guardians of magic the follow up series (2021) The magic fighters (2021 eta Early Fall) and the Guardians of Dreams (2021 after the magic fighters).

    Now in 2022 The Tamers of Shadow, The Defenders of Crystal, The Monster fighters and the Guardians of time.

    These projects were recently re-worked and rewritten to be way better than the original things I wrote for these projects some things may change here and there but should remain mostly the same.

    Now for this last story is a more recent one, the warriors of mezzanine revolves around another magic related conflict on another magic homeworld similar to Gaia. It's too early in development to say much about it but when I have the chance I'll talk about it more.

    You could have asked why I'm thinking so far ahead, but If you know me (or my pattern) I like to think ahead just for something to look forward to and what motivates me to get out of bed in the morning.

    I'm also tempted to put out a discord invite link for a server I have already had as I did delete the Gaia related one as that was a flop.

    Other than being seemingly ghosted that's it for now.

    First things first, regarding the next season of the project It will begin Posting on the 27th Of April and will end one month exactly on the 27th of May. Season 4 the latest one revolves around the wolves like always with a newer Character making his debut into the story. I won't say too much but His last name was mentioned during the 3rd season and was distinct enough to be recognizable.

    Okay regarding my personal life, I'm talking to someone new and am in the beginning stages of a relationship. I won't name drop who they are obviously but I wanted to put that out there. The other more personal thing is that I have been in a lot of pain recently because of me likely having Plantar fasciitis in my left foot, and when my foot had popped during January the pain has been a constant reminder of getting that looked at... but covid and and having existing breathing problems is not making it very easily. The pain does not happen 24/7 but at some point in the month from January onward. The last thing I want to mention is that I'm suspecting that now being at home all the time has... made me really prone to bad mental health days that usually happen a few days out of the month. I just hope that once things go back relatively back to normal that these bad moments fade away to where I was never having them for about two years straight before.

    But yeah, there is that for this update, I'm not fully expecting many people to read what I have to say but this is here if anyone wants to read it.

    The Truth is that I'm more focused on writing than on actual art of my own stuff, as Art was only just a side thing I at any point could work on but is not a major priority of mine. I only really draw if it's an icon or thumbnail or a map of some sort Like with my locations of Gaia Series. I know at any Point I can Improve and work If I was really bored or motivated to but it's not a major priority of mine. Maybe If I burn out of things to write about then I'll focus on that but it's not close to happening any time soon.

    Writing is I think undervalued a lot since it takes more work to engage with than viewing a finished 2D piece, so it's nice sites like this have sections dedicated to it as well.... It's cool to hear about passion for your written stuff though, I hope it treats you well!
    First things first this is a master post, meaning that this will be posted across all the websites and places that I am on (which it may seem confusing to see this on the website you are viewing this on)

    Yes I am on a lot of things,but I learned that the more people who can have eyes on your stuff makes it more accessable in the longer end. This is why that on some twitter discord and telegram updates I use a Deviant Art Journal as anyone can see it from whichever website.

    The last thing, I do have a Tumblr blog but I barely use that any more and only keep an eye on it just to know that it still exists.

    The concrete answer is Sometime in August, but I won't say when though, and Honestly this has been the most fun I have ever had with any of my projects. I had A lot of fun reworking the original story, making the main protagonist and his group of friends the other main characters. And as much as I kinda don't want to admit it I feel like this project will be the "Persona 4" of my works being milked (to an extent) or be referenced a few times.

    But Unlike Persona 4, The Milking and the story must end at some point In which "some time in August" Will be the end with the crossover with other magic users in this timeline and the movie synopsis.

    This Post was supposed to go out on April 9th but It got delayed for… reasons I won't really talk about.

    Recently I got back into supporting a few people on Patreon and now that I changed up on my content, that has be sort of thinking on "what if" I did it. It would be unlikely that I would ever use Patreon for art as I only make simplistic art thumbnails and maps and other things that might come out from me trying out new things. However Now that I'm using my writing skills that I sort of had hidden for basically 20 years at this point, Maybe I could make some money off of it. I'm not planning on doing it but if you were like me and you dabble in experiencing things ever so often this case using Patreon it's only natural to think about it.

    I only think of Writing and Drawing as Hobbies, and just monetizing them just takes the fun out of it, I know plenty of others who may not think the same way as I do but that's how I see it.

    As for Commissions I never really considered it until I started to use Patreon to support others, But the Idea for someone giving me money to do something is weird if it was working or in this case a hypothetical commission.

    As for Requests, I doubt I would ever open for them sometimes that they can be fun, however because some of the bad experiences in the past with people begging me to do requests It would be very very unlikely for me to do them.

    I posted this because I wanted to share my thoughts and not keep it as (X) thing that will Never be posted.

    Hello everyone Season 3 is ending this week and yet another Hiatus is coming, I started Monday with a double post so like last week I had Friday for myself. There may be a thing or two that gets posted outside of the normal pattern, but otherwise I'm not going to be that active posting wise.

    Season 4 is a thing, and It will be posted when the break is over with (and nothing else goes wrong in my personal life), other than that enjoy what remains of season 3.


    Posted using PostyBirb
    To Keep it Short and Rather brief, I feel Like If I mention it Something back and left field would happen, I'm not flashy or overbearing when it comes to my special day Just rather silent and low key about it. I also seem to catch an ego When I expect for something to be different, when In reality I should have Never done it to begin with.

    But for Those who are wondering when my Special Day is, It's on Good Friday this year I won't say the actual date for fear of something terrible happening.

    Yeah I only mentioned this like... one time but there is other stuff in the works, Namely other magical events that happened in this timeline.

    The Guardians of Magic- Takes place on Gaia in 2030, Likely to be the next project to begin "production" on
    The Guardians of Dreams- Takes place on Earth in 2018 and revolves around the existence of a Mirror Dream world and two years after the events of the magic fighters.
    The Magic Fighters- Takes place on earth in 2016 and revolves around the existence of the magic hour.

    Now the Guardians of Dreams and the magic fighters do revolve high school students which reading through the plotlines eerily mirror the Persona 4 and Persona 3 cast and elements of both games (They aren't rip-offs but oddly mirror each other). Also I want to say that the cast of both projects are under the age of 18, but looking through my notes they are sort of treated like a persona character with nothing X-rated ever happening.

    The last thing I would want to mention about all characters (minus the Guardians of magic) Is that once their stories are over they do grow up much like the rebels/heroes of Gaia and the events during their stories are flashbacks.

    For the last last thing, the release of the posting patterns for these projects is depending on the Covid-19 Pandemic on if it's actually getting better or will be a repeat of 2020. But the Guardians of magic should come right after the last episode of the heroes of Gaia project is over with, The Guardians of dreams and then the magic fighters.

    So yeah there is that.

    Hello everyone this is the announcement for The heroes of Gaia (formerly rebels) Season 3 announcement, as it will begin March 8th 2021 and will end on April 9th 2021.
    Not much to say but this season is more relaxed compared to the first two, and the posting will begin tomorrow.


    Posted using PostyBirb
    Season 3's posting pattern will begin March 8th 2021, and Will end around April 9th 2021, Same deal Posts Monday Through Friday with some exceptions. Lastly The Rebels of Gaia Name will be rebranded to the heroes of Gaia, as the majority of the problems on Gaia have been resolved at this point.

    Other things I feel like announcing are this-
    -Thomas and the Magic fighters investigating the magic hour, had his story re written and his group will be making a comeback.
    -George and Demetrius's story revolving around the dream world, taking place two years later after the Magic fighters, with their groups will be making a comeback and has been re written as well.
    -Lastly, Brian the follow up series to the Heroes of Gaia, the Guardians of magic will also be making a comeback with this story also being re written as well.

    The above mentioned stories, will be having a posting pattern dedicated to them at some point, but really nothing will be set in stone yet because of Covid-19, but I can say that at some point they will soon be posted.

    One of the last things I also want to say, Is that I'm unsure if I want to make a new cast with a new magic problem that takes place in 2020 or 2021, but I'm leaning on not doing one because I'm not really feeling it after reworking so many other things that has felt like another project on it's own.

    Anyways, Season 3 will start on March 8th

    Welp Season 2 has wrapped up posting, with a Season 3 coming up at some point. Season 2 is the Last time we hear of "The Rebels of Gaia" Before it transitions to "The Heroes of Gaia" Onward there are more seasons after the 3rd one and I hope that more people who will be reading will be in for the ride.

    Until Then See y'all later until the 3rd season announcement at some point.

    Also Yes i did post the remaining 3 episodes today cause why not.
    I have decided that I won't just leave on February 22th 2025, But December 31st 2025, and for my friend groups (if I have any 4 years from now). I'll be active but not as much, I never really said I would not be vanishing from the internet entirely but occasionally showing up to see what is new on the chat side. Publicly I won't be posting anymore, Simply because I felt that I reached my limit for posting writing and art for a full Decade at this point and it would be time for me to move onto another point and chapter of my life.

    There was another post to go out on Saturday but because of the blackout, and me being very tired I wanted to have time for myself over the weekend. The "regularly scheduled" Posts shall be back on Monday hopefully uninterrupted.


    Posted using PostyBirb
    So I have my power back for now, and I'm going to use Friday to catch up on my uploads, and today to handle a few things in my personal life (it's nothing bad but I don't want to go into detail). I will make another post saying that my posts are caught up tomorrow.


    Posted using PostyBirb
    So I have to get creative so like I currently don't have any power or internet due to this Texas snow storm, and for now the posts will stop cause I have a limited amount of Data on my phone so see everyone once this nightmare is over with.
    I'm pretty sure no one expected my last vent post even me but as if now I'm kinda feeling better. But I'm going to slowly be working on myself and get out of this funk.

    However one of the things i want to somewhat clarify is that Yes i am single but dating someone is not very high on my list if i happen to date someone it will happen at the most random of times. Lately I have been feeling rather comfortable Just staying single but not advertising it in a desperate way like "I'm single please date me OwO". But just casually saying it like it's no big deal (in which after thinking a bunch) it's not something rather minor in my eyes

    I was heavily debating on just stopping posting and focused on myself and my schoolwork but it would only back up the posts afterwards so I kept going. (and before anyone gets worried for me i manage myself very well with my own life and school along with creative stuff like this).

    Lastly I want to thank everyone who has gone out of their way to talk to me after my post. I thought like always I was going to feel alone like always with my thoughts even after I spilled them but I wasn't alone and I have people who care about me to talk to them about my problems.

    So what's ahead of me now?

    Survive this year ,singles awareness day ,and my birthday and keep posting my "magic wolf" fanfic. I'll try not to lose my motivation or bottle up my feelings so much that it messes with me.
    So.. What's been going on with me?

    This is a Question that has been bouncing around in my head a lot recently.

    But to keep it brief before I go full "Vent mode" is that-
    1- I'm suspecting my Depression is back but to a very small degree even though I did "beat" it 2 almost 3 years ago
    2- My motivation is very very low and I am debating on deleting two discord servers and a telegram channel
    3- How recently lonely I am romantically.
    4- The guilty things I want to get off my chest.

    -Actual Vent post (rather long a warning)

    For those who don't know why or I had depression, I had silently suffered with that and mild anxiety because of a traumatic incident from me losing a parent from a car crash a decade ago. It wasn't severe but out of a month or two maybe I had a few depressed days out of the month more than likely a mild case. In 2018 I reached my rock bottom and was sent to therapy by my folks which looking back did not really help but slowly but surely I got better somehow. And during 2020 (of all years) I was depression free and anxiety free or so I thought. I had random low points going into the end of 2020 and somewhat annoying mood swings sometimes happening now. I won't say that this is my old mild case but just a small fraction of the original dose of depression at least to me, and I'm not very sure with my mental health going onward as my older Depressed bad habits are coming back bit by bit.

    My motivation in the beginning was posting for fun, and now it's really low. This may sound really entitled for me to say but I was rather hurt that no one not even my friends or mutual people I am acquainted with showed up in the discord server I dedicated to my project. Like I know I'm fairly small when it comes to some people I have known for years at this point but i was expecting maybe a few people or even one that is not a bot or a troll. It makes me wonder if I am being played or that I should not even bother making public servers because no one but a small group of friends or people I know will show up. Like I know views don't mean anything or a comment or a like i just want to feel that I'm not alone posting my stuff on the internet and no one even noticing. I'm heavily debating on deleting my project related server and retreating back to my older broken one that is not very active. I have been thinking about deleting my older server and telegram channel because only a small amount of people are on both. Granted I never expected to be big or as active compared to the other friend's servers I am in but I think my point has been stated already.

    Another old issue that came up was me feeling very lonely dating wise. Like I know dating or finding a bf or gf is not very high on my list, but it's just really hard on me that I see others who are happy with their significant others be so happy and me feel like the odd one out. Like I feel like I would be okay in a relationship it's just I feel really lonely in general. At one point I was envious of others who were in relationships or were in a better one than I was in. I'm also unsure it's just me being very lonely in general or my Depression or whatever remains of it is messing with me. Lastly this was not bugging me until rather recently, and I'm not sure if this is an actual issue or just an issue my mind is tricking me into thinking that it is an issue.

    From past and present events either my words or questionable word choices or just my general actions. I'm of course not going to name any of them because if you are like me a small mistake will feel like the biggest scandal in your own mind. And I either repress something or just don't acknowledge it anymore. Like silently i feel like every bad thing that has happened to me was deserved even if it was in my control or not. I'm not a dumbass and if i did something wrong or questionable feel free to call me out about it I'm not going to run or get defensive about it because my ego is really small and easily trampled. And if I seriously offended you or anyone I truly am sorry I have zero excuses for what I did even though it's rather cowardly me to address it like this rather than just one on one than face to face.
    I'm not really expecting anyone to forgive me if I did piss someone off, and I can live being on someone's "I dislike list" I'm not trying to play any games or be an asshole or anything because what's the point of being problematic and just ignoring something that I did. Also I can agree that I have some toxic traits, interjecting my own story into a conversation being impatient and not listening and trying my best to correct it. And once again if I did offend anyone I am so sorry you don't have to forgive me I just want to get this off my chest to make my broken self feel better.

    Besides what I said, that's what has been silently bugging me as if now, anything can change or any of the things I said can become irrelevant.
