Hey everyone, what's rolling with cha? ;) Yeah, I know it's been a while, but honestly, there hasn't really been much excitement for me to talk about. I don't remember if I mentioned it before, but living in a small town in Pennsylvania isn't exactly the high life. ^^; There's not much happening here, so please forgive me for the lapse of journal entries. Plus admittedly, I don't exactly have an exciting life. :faint: Sometimes I look at other journals and I read about how so many artists are moving to different countries like Japan or Australia or visit family in Europe, going to anime conventions and such, and I think to myself...when will THAT be me? ^^; Ahh well, I guess artists must have the exciting life. But things are going along well so far. I can't really complain, as there are many people out there going to such hardships. There is so much heart-ache, greed, and arrogance in the world and we all have to be thankful for what we have. I'm hanging in there. :thanks:

I do want to thank those who sent me their kind words and condolences with the passing of my dad. Like I said before, it was quite a shock and I know he'll be missed by his friends and family of course. Thank you for your thoughts, thank you for your wonderful and encouraging words, those of you who commented. It really made it more bearable. There are no words to express how much it means to me that people actually care here on Deviant Art. Thank you. :blowkiss: With the little life insurance my dad had, I hope to be able to take a step in getting out of this deadbeat, "go-nowhere" little town and back home to New York someday. I know that'll happen. I just have to have the faith that it will. :thanks:

I also want to thank those who have read the first part of my original story, Legacy Of The Gods: Blood Ties. It was an exciting journey in bringing to light the power and majesty of the Yoruba African gods that so little know about. Yeah, we all know about Roman and Greek gods, even Egyptian gods, but I was really surprised not many knew about the vastness and richness of West African (especially Yoruba) mythology and gods, which has been around long before Greece or Rome. If you don't know, Yoruba mythology is thought to be almost 8,000 years old! :D It was amazing doing the research, learning about how their stories helped influence and bring about the many stories we know today in modern times. Thank you all for all your feedback and encouragement, those of you who were respectful and mature enough to read and comment. Honestly there were times I wanted to leave Deviant Art because of the silence, but you all made it worth it here with your wonderful, kind words. And you know who you are. ;) I am now doing more research and planning out Book II of Legacy Of The Gods, featuring new a new god, new foes, and a new adventure for Billie and the others. Please stay tuned! :w00t!: I'm still looking for artist to do some fan art and commissions of my characters. If you're interested, please note me and I'll be sure to give detailed references on their looks. I would love that so much. In a way, I'm begging, since I have so few fan art of my story. :faint:

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving in America, and a wonderful and happy Christmas all over the world! While Christmas in not my fave holiday, I do love it for how it brings families together to reflect the year that has passed. It is a time where we can be grateful for those we love who is still around us, and hope for a better year for everyone. And yes, I do admire Christmas for its religious aspect too. I'm not one to believe in a "generic" Christmas just to appease everyone and not to offend. I know what Christmas is about and not ashamed to admit it, and no one should be ashamed of it as well. So yes, I hope everyone had a wonderful Merry Christmas, whether you celebrate it or not. :thanks:

 I also hope everyone had a lovely New Year's and Valentine's. I understand that many singles don't like Valentine's, but....I don't know, I love Valentine's not just because it's a day celebrating romantic love, but also love between family and even friends. Friends have have a powerful love too and I think that is just as important on Valentine's. So yes, much respect to all you husbands and wives and boyfriends and girlfriends out there, but if you're single, celebrate it for the love you have for your close friends and families as well. :love: :party: Next up is my favorite holiday of all.....Easter! :sing:

That's it with me. Again, thank you all for your kind words in my difficult time. Hopefully for my next journal, I'll have much better news......like a better job I'm happy with! :giggle: Many blessings and I'll be back! :iconsaybaibaiplz:

Oh my gosh......I'm literally in tears right now. :happycry: I had heard about this, but I didn't know the project was this big and so many contributions. I loved the dedication to the wonderful, talented contributors to this. I am so filled with hope, joy, and warmness in knowing that there is still such a large fanbase for Mako and Korra. People know they belonged together, people know the reasoning behind that awful finale and how it hurt so many of the fans....fans who had such an investment to the show and the characters. At first, I was so disheartened by how many Korrasami shippers they were, gloating. But I learned in time that slowly, the true fans and Makorra supporters were coming out of hiding, keeping silent until things simmered down. They knew they didn't want to be harassed and bullied by Mike and Bryan as well as the Korrasami shippers. Now they are being braver than ever in supporting Mako and Korra and letting their story be told. I am so happy for them, so proud of them. :thanks: I hope this Winter Project is just as successful as the last one, even more. I hope that Mike and Bryan see it themselves, and I hope even some of the voice actors see it for themselves....as there is a rumor that David Faustino, who voiced Mako, supported Mako and Korra. I hope they see this and know that even with how terribly the show was written after Book II, people loved Mako and Korra together, they knew that they were meant to be, as the creators was quoted as saying. So thank you...thank you so much for this and bring this wonderful project off the ground so that others can see what could have been. Perhaps one day, the rights for Avatar would be passed down to new hands and Mako and Korra could have a proper ending. This project just shows how possible that could be. Thank you. :huggle: :smooch:

Of course, it was right from my heart, I meant every word. :thanks: I think in a way, the creators are feeling a bit of a backlash on this. While there was a big support for what they did for a little while, it's been known they still lost a lot of fans and an audience. The DVD for Book IV completely flopped, and the so-called "official Korrasami date night" pic didn't exactly fly off shelves at an Avatar event about a year ago. Even the artbook was a flop so far. So yeah, it wasn't as big as people think. People are getting to know why they did this and the fandom is practically deserted now for it except for the few die-hards. I just wanted to support you and other true fans of Mako and Korra. You guys are the best. :huggle:

Thanks for the fav and the sweet comment on my artwork. It's always nice to meet a new friend on deviantart!

Looks like you're from the Bronx -- I've been there many times and I love New York! Lucky thing about Pennsylvania and basically the whole East Coast is you have so many places you can visit within a few hours. Amazing world at your fingertips. Hope all is going well with you. See you around deviantart! ;)

Yeah, I grew up in New York after coming to my country, and I loved it there....although I didn't appreciate it much at the time. Leaving a big city and coming to such a small town as this in PA really brings things into prospective on how lucky you had it, but didn't know. :no: *sigh* But I do hope to go back soon. It's just a matter of the right time. You're very welcome and I hope to see lots more from you. ;)

I wanna let you know that I have already done other two Makorra fanarts for the "Makorra Winter Project" (makorrawinterproject.tumblr.co…) but you have to wait April to see them on Deviantart, when the free e-book will  be release. :D
