I had always liked art, despite the fact that I couldn't draw very well. Whether it was fan art from a person's favorite television series, or just little satirical cartoons, I just enjoyed looking at what was posted on the internet. I had been aware of deviantART since I was still a junior at high school, but never really thought about joining the site due to some of the rumors that you had to pay a monthly fee to stay subscribed, sort of like dating websites. It wasn't until I was in college that I actually joined the site, once I found out that membership was free. After that, I instantly became addicted; there were just so many pictures, including fan art of my favorite anime series as well as my personal favorite couples (even if a few of them weren't canon with the actual shows).

In closing, I'm really glad to be a part of this community, and I sincerely hope that this site will stay strong for years to come!
