Hello there. Welcome to my world of Random Thoughts. In this world I’ll be posting stuff about anime and manga. Not to mention various other topics. I may post the occasional music video every now and than. And from time to time, I’ll just talk about my life in general. But first, here are a few things about me.

I was born an only child, for one thing. Originally I was planning to go into art professionally, but recently I’ve been more inclined towards writing. I still do the occasional wallpaper every now and then though, and I also still draw a little. But much of my energy these days goes into writing fan fiction. I’ve also recently become interested in archive and library work, which is something I’ve discovered I’m good at. Finally, like most people on the Internet, I like cats.

That’s pretty much all you need to know about me. I'm not sure how often I'll post something here, but I'll try to as often as I can. In the meantime, I hope you all enjoy visiting.

A Question to TheO

Greetings, good people of TheO. I have a question for everyone, and I'd like to ask it while I still have a working Internet connection (mine seems to go down infrequently at this time of the year, for some reason). Some of you reading may recall that I tried doing a fan art challenge called Fan Artist Want Ad, and that challenge ended up being one big goose egg. The idea was for those who entered to come up with a piece of artwork that I could use for a wallpaper. So my question is this. Should I try a similar fan art challenge here in the near future?

Also (and this goes out to anyone who I either invited to the challenge or simply thought about entering it), what was the reason why you didn't enter? Did I make the challenge too hard to do, or was there some other reason? If anyone reading doesn't wish to answer that, that's fine. I'm just curious to know so I can maybe improve on the second challenge, should I decide to do one. Thank you all for your time.

EPIC FAIL!

Hello everyone. Well, I regret to report that my Fan Artist Wanted fan art challenge has just ended. And not a single person entered. I don't know if I made it too hard of a challenge to do or what, but this is obviously a huge disappointment for me. This was a noble experiment that just didn't make it for whatever reason. I suppose I could try a similar challenge with something much simpler, but I'm not really up for that at the moment. Maybe I'll try in a month or so. Until next time, I guess.

Time's Almost Up

Just a reminder, the fan art challenged I currently have going, Fan Artist Want Ad, is going to end at Christmas. So if anyone is going to enter it, they better do it soon. Nobody has entered so far, so it's pretty much anyone's game.

Your Resident Dark Lord

Hello again, everyone. I'm happy to report that I've been promoted to the rank of Otaku Eternal here on TheO. To be honest, I've been waiting for that to happen for a few years now. So I'm absolutely thrilled to have finally attained this rank. I've already customized my title to "Resident Dark Lord", which is something I've been wanting to do for a long time.

Congrats to everyone else who got promoted today.
