Actually, there are a lot of things that are weighing down on my chest, but I’ll just take off a few weights at a time. …It’s about shipping again. I’ve never had the desire to “ship” characters until I reached sixteen. Sometimes I’d draw my own characters and forcefully put them in love with highly established characters that are owned by a large corporation. In other words, I shipped my OC’s with copyrighted characters, such as sonic the hedgehog. I’ve met some friends that loved to draw, but I assumed they weren’t into shipping (I never asked them). Once I learned how to use a windows vista computer, I came to this website and I felt like I was in a good place. Yet, I didn’t have the motivation to draw shipped characters. I dreamed and desired these things, but never bothered to draw them because there were SO MANY artists here that fulfilled that desire for me, still as I’ve gotten older and wiser I realized this was…kind of unhealthy. I left my deviant art account dead for two years because of this…

 

Why did I “ship” or forcefully put characters together (whether they’re mine or not) without reason? I asked myself this question and here is my conclusion; my hearts’ desire is what drove me to ship characters together, even if it made no sense! I shipped stuff based on my feelings, rather than having any reasonable thinking behind what I was shipping. Honestly, life is too short for me to make two characters fall in love because I thought or if someone else believes it would be “cute.” I’m in that mindset of shipping my own characters and pairing them together for a logical reason. I had this exact mindset when I came back to this website and decided to make some fan art comics. Also, I will never ship copyrighted characters together. If it was a commission, I would need to make this pairing make sense and if I can’t, I’ll have to decline it. Also, there is no way I’m shipping copyrighted characters for free.

 

As artists, we have so many emotions and desires and it is displayed on our drawings. Then again, you don’t have to be an artist to have emotions or desires. Personally, I’ve allowed my own desire to ship as the teenager I was that taking over my way of creating art. Keep in mind, I’m only speaking for myself. If other individuals feel this character would work well with that character, fine. I don’t mind questions or concerns about whether I believe or if someone else believes this character or that character could be together, but I’d rather it was our OC’s than some SEGA, Nintendo, Sony, Hasbro or any other copyrighted character.

 

Now you know why over the last two years of making those last two fanart comics, I’ve been very hesitant on shipping certain characters that have been heavily requested to me. I’ve made some teases, but I’ll never ship ‘em because the brand of that franchise is not about rushed love, but action, adventure and more action.

Finally! He made it! Now for the next test...

Also, for those of you that are wondering how old flare is; he's a teenager. Sixteen to be exact. To enter the Ring-Round Event, dragons would have to be Eighteen years old. I didn't want to give out his exact age until I have my script finalized. Now, it is nearly finished!

climbing a mountain for 25 minutes is easier said than done. Flare is only half-way up the mountain, yet he was about to give up. Fire, however encourages him to keep going. Another 25 minutes to climb...

Mountain climbing is a test of endurance and strength. Running to that mountain took awhile, but climbing that mountain will take a long while.

Flares' next test may be more than he can handle, but it is doable for powerful, mythical creatures like him.

trust me this will put a smile on your face, make your day, or help you





Every night , someone thinks about you before they go to sleep,





At least fifteen people in this world love you.


The only reason someone would ever hate you is because they want to be just like you



There are at least two people in this world that would die for you




You mean the world to someone.


Someone that you don't even know exists loves you.



When you make the biggest mistake ever,
something good comes from it.





When you think the world has turned its back on you, 
take a look.





Always remember the compliments you've received.


Forget the rude remarks.









So if you are a loving friend, send this to 15 on your list including the person that sent it to you. If you care


Tonight,
at midnight
your true love
will realize
they like you.





Something good will happen to you between 12 in the morning
and

four o'clock pm

tomorrow,

it could be anywhere . Get ready for the biggest

shock of your
life





If you break this chain YOU will be cursed with

relationship problems

for

the next ten years . Send this to fifteen people

in fifteen minutes !!

Make Someone else's day! Help get a smile on someone's face! Help someone out! remember that your loved


F.R.I.E.N.D.S.

(Right back at you Cynder) Send one to all your friends who you think deserve a hug (which, hopefully includes the person who sent it to you)!! You might send it to your enemies as well! It'll really make them stop and think!!! If you don't receive this back, nobody likes you, and they wish you'd stop bugging them! If you receive this back 1 time, open up! Find more friends, enemies, or enemies pretending to be friends If you receive this back 2 times, you're off to a good start! (Unless you sent it to yourself! That's cheating!) If you receive this back 3 times, you're a good friend. If you receive this back 4 times, you're truly loved as a friend!!
