G'day guys! I'm a fangirl from Australia. I'm here to watch and support artists and maybe even put up a thing or two of my own. I write, draw and do cosplay stuff from time to time (or when I have the money). I am also a Vegan and some of the content I create on my profile will be Vegan activism. If you don't like what you see or read then I will advise you to keep hurtful and hateful comments to yourself. All will be deleted and you will be blocked. Negativity towards what I am passionate about will not be tolerated :) If you have sincere questions and/or a Vegan (old or new) I'd love to swap recipes, advice and ways of coping with the non friendly world around us. If you're thinking about going Vegan then I'll be happy to help you along or answer any questions you have :) Just send me a note! Or message my facebook page as linked below!

Gravity Falls Journal 3
*gasp* YES I DID A THING THAT I AM PROUD OF ENOUGH TO PUT ON DEVIANTART! Gravity Falls is my all time favourite TV show and I include that of anime. It's just my favourite all time thing.

I dont obsess all that often, like  I like a lot of things but I freaking LOVE Gravity Falls so I got bored one night and decided to make the third Journal out of an old romance novel. The inside of the book is still in good shape because I still like the book (Forgotten by Cat Patrick) and I used one of my old book carcasses to add the protruding pages. It just has a new cover now. This was total spontaneous because I saw how easy www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nxpt3B… this guy << did his so thought I'd dig through everything i had and ended up using some gold ribbon I had for well the gold parts, some thick card for the knobs on the corner gold parts and the sides of the book then added the gold on top, I tried to use marker to draw the 3 but ended up using acrylic paint. I didn't have a clear monocle so I ended up using a stop watch necklace I had instead which still works I reckon! I used an old red folder I had to re-do the whole book. Was going to paint it red but adhering the card to the cover saved a bit more time.  To make the distressed areas on the book I just stuck on some old masking tape. Was quite surprised on how well it seemed to work :D For the 'tassel' I used an old chain and some left over of that red card as I didn't have any tassels or red fabric or threads but hey it still works as I used the pattern from the show. I didn't want the outline of everything to be too dark or I would have gone around everything in acrylic paint so I just traced it all with a black pen though I left the distressed parts alone and free-handed the doodles on the back in pen. Really surprised how easy this turned out to be and it only took me a couple hours :) If you have any questions about it send me a message! Remember reality is an illusion, the universe is a hologram, buy gold! BYE!

1. Tell us about your favorite writing project/universe that you've worked with and why. 
My usual go-to universes have been myths. I love all myths and may or may not have a slight obsession with Greek Mythology. I believe that all myths have some basis of truth, even though say Poseidon may not have been a god per-say but an exaggerated story of someone who did great things in the water, maybe one guy was really good at fishing or swimming or saved someone in a ship wreck. It's fun to play with myths as there is no real solid story, everyone has their own interpretation. Currently I'm having fun playing with Lycanthropy aka werewolves. 

2. How many characters do you have? Do you prefer males or females? 
Over the years.... way too many to count. I don't have a specific gender I prefer.

3. How do you come up with names, for characters (and for places if you're writing about fictional places)? 
Usually names I've seen around, picked up from history books, or I google most common names in: whatever area of the world I'm placing them in. E.g. England or Scotland or Russian names.
Or whenever I'm truly stuck I have a baby name app on my phone that generates names randomly to help get the ball rolling. 

4. Tell us about one of your first stories/characters! 
As a writing exercise I used to turn songs into stories and one of my favorites was Owl City's Saltwater Room. Two random characters that I didn't partially give much thought into, it was mainly the story not so much the characters.

5. By age, who is your youngest character? Oldest? How about "youngest"? 
I've written in a 5 year old and then a 300 year old. It's hard for me to write kids as I'm not too fond of them IRL. 

6. Where are you most comfortable writing? At what time of day? Computer or good ol' pen and paper? 
I'm a touch typer and prefer working whenever the muse is right. It can hit me at any time of the day, get inspired by a TV series (thank you Netflix), the way someone acts in public, something my long term boyfriend will say or even something stupid my dog will do can inspire me to write. 

7. Do you listen to music while you write? What kind? Are there any songs you like to relate/apply to your characters? 
Sometimes. If I do it's usually country music. It's calm and flowing type of music so it's easy to tune out when I need to. 

8. What's your favourite genre to write? To read? 
Fantasy, plain fiction and graphic novels aka comics for both. If i could I would love to write graphic novels but I can't draw to save my life.   

9. How do you get ideas for your characters? Describe the process of creating them.
Usually I think about what kind of story I'd like to work with first and then put the basic version of the character into the situation and then see what traits they would form over time then I turn to Sims 4 and use the character creation from there or find actors I think would have a similar appearance. I'm very loose with my writing, there is no one set way something can happen.

10. What are some really weird situations your characters have been in? Everything from serious canon scenes to meme questions counts! 
Skin turning green? Meeting half cat people? Um... not much that I can remember sorry XD 

11. Who is your favourite character to write? Least favourite? 
Currently it's Ethel and Chase. Least, Mike. I'm still figuring his character out and his mannerisms so I get a bit frustrated. Oh and kids.... can't handle writing kids just yet.  

12. In what story did you feel you did the best job of world building? 
A story I wrote years ago and is still sitting on my hard drive. It was a fairy type world haha I had a thing for fairy myths back when I was 15/16 (I'm 19 on the 28th Feb)

13. What's your favourite culture to write, fictional or not?
Myths in general. Even though I love Greek mythology I love to fan out a lot :)

14. How do you map out locations, if needed? Do you have any to show us? 
Google? Experiences? It's a bit hard to explain. I just pick a place that feels right. 

15. Mid way question! Tell us about a writer you admire, whether professional or not! 
Rick Riordan (due to the fact that he encourages people to write, has awesome tips on his website and wrote my favourite book series Percy Jackson) 
That's kind of it? I'm a bit weird with authors, celebrities and having people I admire.

16. Do you write romantic relationships? How do you do with those, and how "far" are you willing to go in your writing? 
I'm willing to go as far as I need to. If the story is flowing that way then yup that's what will happen. No shame man. We all do it. 

17. Favourite protagonist and why! 
Chase at the moment. He's nice and chilled to write in his POV. He knows things that the others don't and yeah XD 

18. Favourite antagonist and why! 
Alexis, I love writing the bad guys, it's fun and there's no limits with them. 

19. Favourite minor that decided to shove himself into the spotlight and why! 
Haven't had that yet, maybe Alex is the closest? He's a funny Scandinavian big lumberjack guy (love the stereotype!)  

20. What are your favourite character interactions to write? 
When they're all goofing off as friends. 

21. Do any of your characters have children? How well do you write them? 
Children... I suck at writing as children due to my dislike for them. 

22. How long does it usually take you to complete an entire story—from planning to writing to posting (if you post your work)? 
Ah ha ha well.... on the rare occasion when I did fanfiction, I'd usually have a chapter out within the night. My own stories, can range between a week to a few years. Haven't completed many of my own. 

23. How willing are you to kill your characters if the plot so demands it? What's the most interesting way you've killed someone?
I am willing if that's what need to be done I'll do it unfortunately.  

24. Do any of your characters have pets? Tell us about them. 
So far only two characters ever created since I was 13 have had pets. Cody and Kilo. Kilo is most recent. 

25. Let's talk art! Do you draw your characters? Do others draw them? Pick one of your OCs and post your favourite picture of him!
Sims 4 is where they live or dress up games tend to help get a visual. I'm a bit protective about my characters as of now so no pictures sorry! 

26. Along similar lines, do appearances play a big role in your stories? Tell us about them, or if not, how you go about designing your characters. 
As I've been saying, I use dress up games, Sims 4, maybe I'll do a shitty rough sketch but that's it. Got no artistic talent. 
I do design them to suit the environment and their purpose in the story. 

27. Have you ever written a character with physical or mental disabilities? Describe them, and if there's nothing major to speak of, tell us a few smaller ones. 
I played with a war amputee for a while? 

28. Final question! Tag someone! And tell us what you like about that person as a writer and/or about one of his/her characters! 
No tags, but I did get this from: shinyumbreon01.deviantart.com/ Shiny Umbreon 01
