Hello once again fellow deviants. It hasn't been a particularly eventful few months, but I thought I'd update since, ya know, it's the start of a new year.

I've spent today looking over all the things I've gone through this year, best cataloged by my Journal here on DA. I've definitely had my ups and downs this year, and I thought I'd take a moment to share them with you.

For starters, I was supposed to move into a bedroom of my own and officially start living the bachelor life. While my name is on a lease now, I still really live on a couch. It sucks. Maybe next July I'll be in a better way. Next, my best friend of about a year and a half decided to break ties with me. She and I went through a lot together in our short time, and at times we even gave each other a reason to live. But her girlfriend became a very important part of her life, and they together decided it would be best if I wasn't in it anymore. It sucks, and I'm still getting over it, but thankfully I have other great friends who have helped me so much. Next up, my student loans went into repayment. So just when I thought I could get well on my feet, now I'm shelling out one whole paycheck a month just for that. Roger Ebert, a true giant of the film critic community and a personal inspiration to me, passed away this year And through it all, I've made almost no progress on my book.

On the other hand, I've had a lot of progress with my fanfiction. Since the beginning of this year I've posted eight chapters of "The New God of War." While in hindsight, it seems pretty minimal, but it's better than I did last year! Small steps, I suppose. I've also began collecting The Simpsons, which is basically like chronicling the recent history of America. I've also caught up on Supernatural and Doctor Who, and discovered Sherlock. And then I joined tumblr and became a SuperWhoLockian. I may have more bills, but I'm finally out on my own. I got a better job, and I made my way to MegaCon! I met three of the greatest friends I could ever ask for, and they've helped me explore myself deeper than I'd dared before this year. I saw several great films this year (Iron Man 3, The Wolverine, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, Pacific Rim) capped off by seeing Jurassic Park, the film that sparked my very existence, back in theatres and in 3D. 

So, 2013 has come and gone. Hopefully 2014 will bring us each an extra smile for all the frowns this past year has left us with. Happy New Year, fellow deviants.

I'm a nerd, a fanboy, a film critic, and that typical lazy artistic-type. Or maybe I'm just lazy...
I love to write. Having spent the past few years writing fanfiction for various things, I'm moving on to a book.
Also, I make custom keyblades. And I'm officially doing open requests!

I like Rock music, but I prefer songs over bands. The only band I like more than a few songs for is AC/DC
I'm a huge movie buff, so don't even get me started on favorite films.
Favorite author right now would be somewhere between Stephen King and Jim Butcher (author of "The Dresden Files")

And that's pretty much me :)

Here's a suggestion, an interesting one at that!: If your not too busy, maybe you can try making a Scot Pilgrim Keyblade?

NOTE: This is not a request, just a mere suggestion.

I've thought about it several times, and I wouldn't be content with just one keyblade for the whole franchise. I'd need to make blades for Scott, Ramona, and probably all of the Ex's as well. Maybe someday I'll have the time.
