Hi there. I'm Aspen. You can call me Soni if you want.
My name comes from a OC, and I've usually got a male avatar, but I'm a girl.
I do my best to be friendly, and I can have a bad problem of rambling off and being rather long-winded, but trust me, I do my best to shorten it.
I like to talk, but I'm not too into heavy subjects like politics and politically correct subjects or whatever.
I have mild situational social anxiety, so I usually have to be approached first before I talk. That being said, I dislike random friend requests.
I prefer we talk first and you ask. If you're nice, chances are I'll ask you if I can add you as well. Be forewarned that I rarely initiate conversation myself, so do not expect me to come to you for conversation. I don't mean anything by it, I just don't want to bother people.
I believe in treating people with respect if they do so to me. If you're a jerk for no reason to other people, chances are I'm going to give you a cold shoulder or chew you out just like you likely did them.
Also, if you get a compliment from me, or I'm being nice to you, take it just as that and nothing more.
Due to some past problems and due to people apparently being no longer used to what should be common courtesy, I've been accused of flirting or sucking up, when I'm not. I have no interest in doing so either due to me being asexual and I can get what I want on the site on my own. I'm just being friendly.
I don't flaunt my asexuality though, and I would prefer you do not come to me with gender/sexuality related topics.
Lately I've been into Lake Kindred, and that's my main source of income. I love collecting Kindred, and I'm typically trying to quest for Kin when I feel like I'm alright with my item closet.
I am an artist and have been for several years. I prefer traditional art, but I rarely do it anymore.
My art blog is over here.
If you come to ask me about making art for you, please don't
. I don't care how much you're bribing me, I no longer feel it's worth the effort and stress it brings me to draw for Gaians on command due to past experiences over my years of playing.
One of my biggest pet peeves is people begging me for free art, or adding me and sucking up to me in hopes I'll either donate items, gold or art. I'm not nearly as loaded as people believe I am, and I work hard for all of my items.
That said, I'll draw something should the inspiration strike, and donate if I feel as if you deserve it and I have enough funds to do so, but NEVER ask me for either.
I play many different video games, from Animal Crossing and Pokemon, to Portal to World of Warcraft (for the Horde!), and can generally just about play anything and find some enjoyment in it. Feel free to ask what I'm currently playing.
I also enjoy certain TV shows, but I'm likely not caught up with them because I wait to buy the boxed sets to watch them as my internet connection isn't the greatest. I like Supernatural, Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead.
Anime, I'm not too fond of much anymore due to most styles being unbearable to me. It has to be interesting enough, non-generically drawn and fluidly animated for me to like it. Plus, y'know, a good plotline.
Anime I do like include: Fullmetal Alchemist (which I never finished, despite that), Blood+, Hellsing Ultimate and of course the Hayao Miyazaki/Studio Ghibli films.
Like my tastes in games, my taste in music varies wildly as well. It'd take me ages to list off what I like to listen to. Let's just say it goes from Imagine Dragons to Daft Punk, to K-pop to Silent Hill music and all over the place otherwise.
Anyway, I think this is all good and such and I should wrap this up. Hope that gave you a bit of insight into me if you read all that.
