Something I have recently learned with writing reviews for, well, anything is that there isn't much point in doing one unless you actually have something worth while to say about it, more than just regurgitating the same things everybody else is saying. Gotta bring something new to the table, see, or at least that's how it is with me, or I start to loose interest over time.

That's what happened with my reviews for every episode of season 4 of MLP, by the way, and why I abruptly stopped after "Trade Ya" (actually, what REALLY happened was that I got caught up with school work that I couldn't set aside, thus resulting in me switching gears to focus on that, rather than things like MLP reviews, but the lack of interest was what kept from going BACK), though I do still plan on going back and covering what remaining episodes I haven't reviewed at some future date (because that finale is just screaming it) even if its so...after the fact.

But basically, I've decided that for future reviews, I'm only going to write it if I feel I genuinely have something to discuss, or something new to add to the overarching discussion on the subject.

Which leads me to why I'm writing all of this now; today I saw "How To Train Your Dragon 2" for the first time.

So now you're asking, what did you think of it? Was it as great as the hype promised, matching or exceeding the success (in terms of storytelling) of the first one? As great as all the other fans claim it to be, and that there is little to nothing you'd change, or even needing changing?

Well, actually...

...no.

Okay, first you thing you should know about me is that writing is a first and foremost favorite thing to do, with all other forms of art coming in a close second. Heck, I was writing before I could even write.

Instead, I usually used pictures I drew myself to tell the stories I wanted to tell.

Used to to do that often, in fact, to the point I did little else years and years ago. But, while my skills improved for awhile, that eventually kind of fizzled, and I couldn't get those art skills to improve any more. Frustrated, and knowing that my current level of artwork wasn't going to be of use to me as anything more than a mere on-the-side hobby that was extremely limited, I all but gave it up.

Thankfully, I have rediscovered this almost lost skill, and have gotten it to progress forward again. It's still not where I'd like it (the art you other users produce usually trample mine) but there's hope again. :)

My hope by choosing to make use of this account on deviantART is to hopefully learn new tricks and progress that skill even further than where it stands now.

If you're looking for the fanfics I have posted here, you will find them in the subgallery labeled as "Fanfics" ONLY, and nowhere else on my account.

Current Residence: Somewhere in the depths of America...
Favourite genre of music: Techno, electronic, orchestra instrumentals (like movie soundtracks), electro-swing, some dubstep, and mixes of all of those and others at times.
Favourite style of art: I dunno, depends on the piece and it's quality. I've taken a recent interest in watercolor, though.
Favourite cartoon character: The funny ones. :P

Also, when you thank me for a fave or whatever, I will generally always reply, but since I get tired of saying "you're welcome" again and again, every so often I might do something...unusual...to shake things up. If I do, just smile and humor me. :P

Additionally, if I happen to respond with "libenter," that's Latin for "gladly," the closest I can come up with for a translation for "you're welcome" (which apparently wasn't a thing for ancient Rome).
