Um...what can I say? It's a Squirtle sprite so it looks like a Squirtle sprite. The whole thing looks amazing. I mean...well, I for one...

Wow, this is...well, first of all, it's cute. They're all so adorable, I wish they were real. Umm...but then, well, they'd attack me be...

Well, I actually have a viable excuse for my time away from DA this time. I was overseas to visit family. We were meant to be back by the 2nd of January, but our travel agents messed up the departure times for the plane we were meant to be on, so... We had to wait for the next flight where we could all come back together. That happened to be three weeks later, considering that we were already over there for three weeks. So yeah, six weeks away from home... in another home. Man, it's hard having two homes and one heart...

UPDATE: Welp, one can only put up fake smiles for so long. I've recently had to accept and digest two separate heartbreaking catastrophes, and I'm trying my utmost best to not let either of them break me. I must say talking to my friends here have been the most comforting for me, and "thank you" doesn't really cut how much I appreciate your presence and support. You guys are simply the best. :)

Now that that's out of the way, let's have some fun. ;p

Because of my stupid absence, I've missed out on replying to a ton of messages by you guys and I'm trying my best to reply to all of them. One of the little things in my message inbox had really intrigued me so I'm going to give a shot at doing it. Yep, I'm doing a tag journal. Thank you StarlightShoals for the tag. You're awesome! Also to those who are tagged in this... I'm sorry, but I missed you, and this is how I express it. ;P

(Fair warning: if you're not a fan of metal or any of its harsher sub-genres, I'd recommend you brace yourself, should you choose to listen, for the tracks with this asterisk:*)

1) Write down every letter in your name (You can use your username if you're not comfortable using your real one)
2) Write down a song that pops into your head beginning with each letter.
3) Count the number of letters and TAG that many people.

A - And Justice for All / Metallica*
(I've pretty much grown up listening to these guys, so I'm starting off with them)

B - Breaking The Habit / Linkin Park
(Not metal, I know. What's wrong with me? ;p)

R - Reverence - Living In The Heart / Epica*
(It's symphonic metal so the melody's really sweet, but the riffs are brutal, so fair warning)

A - The Accolade /Symphony X
(Technically, this isn't metal... this band puts an amalgamation of genres into their music, and metal is just one of them. But this song is like a gentle blend of symphonic, neo-classical, and progressive rock.) 

R - Rainmaker / Iron Maiden
(I'd put an asterisk on this, but the song is amazing. Besides, would you really count a NWOBHV band as harsh? ;p)

A - Another Day / Dream Theater
(One of the best songs by one of the best bands in the world, nuff said.)

H - Hearts Burst Into Fire / Bullet For My Valentine*
(Probably one of the softest songs you're gonna hear on this list, it's still pretty hard so... fair warning)  

M - Monuments / Carina Round
(Don't let the creepy album art fool you. This song is gentle and actually quite catchy. :D)

E - Elegy / Leave's Eyes (ANOTHER symphonic metal song!? I'm sorry, I'm probably going through my symphonic phase... :shrug: PS: I know, the video is really cheesy. Just enjoy the music. ;p)

D - Dread And The Fugitive Mind / Megadeth*
(Ending the list with an Omega than contradicts the Alpha. And if you get the musical reference here, kudos to you. ;))

And with the power invested in me by the rules of this tag journal, I hereby tag the following:

Welp... Enjoy!

My icon was made by :iconno-aengel:. Visit their page. Check out their gallery. Drop a favebomb, comment, llama etc. I'd appreciate it. :D


My real name is a secret. My given name is unknown. My taken name is Leech.

I have a daemon who hasn't chosen her animal yet.

I am a demigod, but Hermes doesn't accept me.

Well...where do I start. I've been drawing as far as my memories reach back. I think I was 5, but I'm not sure. Out of drawing in spare time at home and school, I kind of got attached to art. It kind of clung on to me, as if it'll never let go. I let it stay, it steadily gradually grew and it turned into passion and it still grows...


If you like my art, you will love these guys:

Just wanted to thank you for the fave!

Also, since I'm currently focusing on music, I was wondering if you'd be interested in supporting me in that endeavor of mine?

If you are, I can link you to where you can find that stuff!
