If you want to know anything about me all you have to do is ask.
If it sounds outlandish, I'm probably just RPing. I do that a lot. You can find my OC's profile elsewhere on my profile.
I'm back to making pixels, but I don't do the pokemon trainer sprites anymore. If you lost one I did for you, you're out of luck, since I've deleted all of them. It's a long story there, but suffice it to say that enough people took offense to them that I decided that the effort wasn't worth my while. I also don't take commissions unless my shop says I am, so please don't ask.
Since switching jobs my tinnitus has almost completely disappeared. It's marvelous what not standing directly next to a person nicknamed "The Banshee" can do for your hearing.
I've recently gone through what I like to call a personality overhaul. I've been learning to recognize toxic thoughts and behaviors and have been working on ridding myself of them. So far it's been working. I can honestly say that I don't remember the last time I was sad. Up until now I was the most toxic person in my life. I got really low, too. I even had my own death planned out.
I may seem intimidating, but I'm not going to bite your head off unless you really piss me off.
If I tell you I love you I mean it. It would seriously take a lot of effort on your part to get me to lose that feeling.
I do not subscribe to any political party. My views are more libertarian (small 'l'). I'm not a fan of the government being allowed to handle most things; they usually screw it up. Not to say that it would be that much better in the hands of private individuals, but at least they can be held accountable.
Assume I have no idea what you're talking about when it comes to sports.
I don't drink, smoke, or do drugs.
I live in Wisconsin.
I believe that America is a fascist country.
I am extremely introverted and very easily discouraged.
My pokemanz types are Dragon/Grass.
If I had to say what my alignment is I would say True Neutral and I disagree with how the player's handbook describes their views of good and evil people. To me there is no difference other than method between good and evil and I am just as equally disparaged to have neighbors of either alignment. I would much rather have neighbors that keep to themselves. The same applies to the government.
If you would like to read further on my views of good and evil:
Good people can be just as bad as evil people, that being they can be just as intrusive and annoying. The difference being their methods. Both will try to coerce you, Evil through force, Good through guilt. Both will try to steal from you, Evil through outright theft, Good through taxation, fees, and fines to pay for things they see as necessary to the betterment of society. Again we look to guilt. "Won't you think of the children?" It's still theft, because when they make it a law they're now forcing you to comply, which is theft through coercion. Don't pay up? Go to jail, go directly to jail. Do not pass go. Do not collect $200.
I'd rather think of me and mine and have you keep to you and yours rather than taking from me and mine to pay for you and yours. It's all well and good to ask for assistance for the needy, and at that point I would be much more willing to contribute, but when you decide it's a good idea to force me to shell out money for them I take issue with that. Mostly because I know most of it is going to get lost in administrative fees. Here in the US we could pay 1/10th of what we pay in total taxes if all the money went directly to their respective programs instead of passing through the hands of the 50 or so levels of administration that it ends up having to trickle down through. But that's also beside the point that we shouldn't be paying an income tax to begin with, because if we're supposed to tax the things we don't want then you're punishing earning, which is a bad idea. We should be punishing spending and rewarding earning and saving. And if you're worried about the so-called "evil rich" not getting taxed enough, well ******** you, one of them signs my paycheck, and the more you take out of him the less he can afford to pay me. And that directly affects me and mine. So again I say ******** you.
Here's the run down: If the owner of the company I work for paid less in taxes his products and services wouldn't need to cost as much to make up the difference. Let's face it: the rich don't pay taxes, it gets subsumed into the costs of their products and services, because if they did pay the taxes off their own dollar, they'd go broke. So, if we were to stop taxing the rich so much, and it were true across every institution of employment, every dollar my employer pays me would be worth that much more, because they wouldn't have to hike up their prices to pay for the taxes people want imposed on them, which would mean I wouldn't necessarily have to pay as much on groceries, gas, etc. Then I could afford to give more money to various charitable institutions, who, in turn, would be able to afford more to help those less fortunate than myself. I've seen these charitable institutions at work, too. They're much more inclined to be efficient than any government worker who has no skin in the game. I would know, I've done work for several.
Now, if you think it wouldn't be as perfect as that in practice, it would at least be much more efficient in terms of the money getting to where it needs to be, rather than it lining the pockets of people who could otherwise be contributing to society rather than leeching off it, and I'm not talking about people on welfare; I'm talking about lobbyists and those people to whom administrative fees go. Those are the real leeches of society.
You may ask why I don't just run for public office and try to make the system better. I know it's a bit cliche to say, but the lobbyists really do run Washington. Don't believe me? Just talk to one of them sometime.
So, to sum up my little rant here: good and evil are just inefficient.
I really like fairies.
Please don't randomly add me to your friend list. At least talk to me, first.
Jovalla is a female Risi (troll) who left her forest home, though not willingly, to move closer to the city and she wants to eventually become a mage.
The problem is that the local magic schools won't let her practice, because trolls tend to have difficulty controlling mana. Several unfortunate accidents lead to this decision. She moved ahead with her plan to learn magic by disguising herself as an elf and only lets the people she really trusts know that she's actually a troll.
She will often take on jobs as a healer with adventurer groups and assist them on their missions. When she's not adventuring she plies her trade as a maid.
Jovalla has blue eyes and long, medium brown hair. She stands 6'3" (190.5cm) tall. Her ears are lined with soft hair along the edges. Her tail has a tuft of similarly soft hair at the end. She hides her tail by either wrapping it around her waist, under her skirt, or pushing it up the back of her shirt. Normally a troll's ear and tail fur are very coarse, their skin is somewhat dry or mottled, and they tend to have a very pungent odor but with the care she gives to her appearance and with regular bathing she can actually blend in with society without anyone being the wiser.
There's no sugar-coating it: Jovalla is a pushover. She's always willing to please, but tends to be a bit hesitant when it comes to things she deems as inappropriate. This is especially so when it comes to showing off her body, because that would make it difficult to keep up her disguise. She despises arguing over things and feels that it's a waste of effort to be stubborn. She's also a bit of a pacifist, but doesn't hesitate to defend a friend when the situation calls.
Another thing you should know about Jovalla is that she has no real sense of personal space, or shame from being naked with people she feels comfortable being around.
Jovalla's magic works in strange ways. Due to her nature as a troll her mana tends to surge randomly, and often the spells she casts will turn into something else entirely. This effect is called "wild magic." Jovalla has no control over it at this point, but is researching ways to predict surges.
Romance: At this moment Jovalla does not have a romantic interest. With all the options available to her she doesn't want to settle for the first pretty face that comes along. She's looking for a more meaningful relationship and is hoping to eventually have children of her own.
On an Adventure!
OMg, you're not supposed to be in here!
This is the progress I've made so far on carving out the pieces for my first Ball Jointed Doll (BJD). At this point I still have to finish the hands before I can fully assemble it. I also plan on painting on her facial features, including eyes. I also need to finish sanding and put a sealant on to protect the wood.
The next step after the doll itself is finished is to create a wig, clothing, and accessories. I might also make the ears larger so I can put earrings on her.
I made the ears larger, put sealant on all the pieces and strung her together.
I've also painted her face on, but I don't have pics of that, yet. I'm waiting on my mother to finish sewing an outfit. I'm letting her do it, because she got really excited when she found out I'm making these.

I would say it's pretty good for my first one. Eventually I'll get better at painting faces.
