Wow, I'm hardly ever here anymore. I really need to change that.
So, where do I start? Well, first of all, I hardly ever submit anything here because these days most of what I do these days consists of fanfiction, and I realized that it's a lot easier to get recognition on sites that are made to host fanfiction. Most of all, I spend a lot of time on fimfiction.net, a site made to host My Little Pony fanfiction. And while I haven't been on that site as long as I have on DeviantArt, I have quite a bit more recognition there.
How much more? Well, here's a few comparisons: Here on DeviantArt, I have 52 watchers. On FimFiction, on the other hand, I have 199 followers. Yeah, that's right. I have almost 3 times as many followers on FimFiction as I do here.
To compare further, there's my story "Congratulations, Rainbow Dash, You're The New Spike," which is the only story I've submitted both on FimFiction and DeviantArt. Here, it has 2,208 views, 28 favorites, and 23 comments. On FimFiction, it currently has 2995 views, 85 followers, and 38 comments. Also, it has 112 likes, which is something that DeviantArt doesn't quite seem to have.
On Deviantart: Congratulations Rainbow Dash, You're the new Spike

And while we're on that subject, I think I should probably mention my "main" story, The Prince of the Night. While I currently have put it on hold while I re-write several of the earlier chapters, it currently has a total of 54,201 views across all chapters (or, at 18 chapters so far, about 3011 views per chapter), 452 comments (about 25 per chapter), 759 followers, and 560 likes. To be quite honest, I simply never got that much popularity with fanfiction here on DeviantArt. (To be fair, of course, most of my work before migrating to FimFiction was rather narrow in terms of who would enjoy it... but I've been writing some rather unorthodox stories on FimFiction too, and people seem to be enjoying them too.)
(Anyone who wishes to read The Prince of the Night may do so here: www.fimfiction.net/story/58738…)
So, to be honest, I simply feel that my work is
better appreciated on sites that focus more on stories than generalizing. With that said, I'll see if I can do a better job of doing stuff on this site as well.

Now that that's out of the way, I'd like to thank everyone who remembered my birthday. Even if I don't spend much time here anymore, it means a lot to me.
Also, I was tagged on a quiz by BerryPunchrules, whom I met on FimFiction before finding her on DeviantArt. So, here we go:
Rules:1. You must post the rules.2. Each person must say 5 things about themselves in their journal.3. Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post and create five new questions for the people you tag to answer.4. You have to choose 10 people to tag and post their icons on your journal.5. No tag backs.6. No stuff in the tagging section about "You're tagged if you're reading this". You legitimately have to tag 10 people.

2. I used to be a Sonic fan, but I left because the fandom was full of a holes.

4. Who is your favorite My Little Pony character? (if you're not a brony, write down "Weird Al" Yankovic or something)
5. What is the airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow?
Well... it's been a while since I've been here, so I don't know who to tag. So I'll just tag random people who I vaguely remember being friends with
8 RetiredVelocity (Huh, she used to be StrangeVelocity. I've been away waaay too long.)
9 AwzyKitsune (If memory serves, he's the guy who got me into MLP in the first place. I really need to re-connect with him.)
I think all those people know me. I dunno. It's been over a year and a half since I wrote anything on this journal, and it's 2 AM so I should be asleep right now. So I'm gonna submit this and go off to bed. Good night.
