Everything has moved to tumblr. The yuugiou fandom is dead. Deviantart is dead. Strange thought. All that I have left now is nostalgia.

If there are any ygo fans that are still around here and that don't follow me on tumblr, I updated scar tissue after like 3 years lol.

Actually, tumblr is dead.

If you're trying to keep ahead of the curve, don't even start. The curve is way, way ahead of anything you know, and most of what you can conceive. Remember, if people like you and me are using the technology, it's already dead. The newest stuff can only be found among those creating it, before it is monetized and ruined.

Life in the fast lane!

Man, I remember first starting out in the YGO fandom, that was all I edited to for like, nearly two years :'D  It was a consistent fandom.  Had its ups and downs, but regularly updated.  Naoadays, it seems pretty hard to keep people interested, and not see the same things - be it ships, scenes, etc. - over and over again.  Tho to be fair, that happened a lot back in the day, too... I remember when every other thing was Puzzleshipping...

I think half of it is just, people haven't watched it in years.  Whenever I go to read fanfics these days, it's basically head-canons based off head-canons based off head-canons.  Everything's watered down and I often find myself going "Kay, I know you got that outta a doujinshi..."

Same can be said about AMVs, I don't think I've seen a truly unique YGO mep in a long time - save for like, a crack-shipping mep, but even then, the idea isn't anything new (says the peep with a crack-ship icon *ahem*).  They come along once in a while, but it kinda feels like creativity is dead since again, peeps haven't really watched it in years.  Also, most YGO studios started off 2-3 years ago, when the fandom was pretty hoppin', and nao it just seems like no one wants to quit, they just wanna stick around cuz it's what they started off with

I feel like commenting in general has kinda died down, too... seems like that on all my accounts, anyway - Youtube, DA, tumblr can be a decent place for like, discussing head-canons and analyzing screenshots.  I've had mixed experiences with both, since the site is infamous for having assholes, and trust me it does, but it's kinda nice to be able to rant about a head-canon outside of a Youtube description

I have read Scar Tissue, btw (I've read most of your fics, actually ummmmm XD) and I did really enjoy your updated chapters :'D  I admire you for going back to it after so long lol

I was thinking of posting art here again, I've mostly just started drawing on tegaki more. (IF YOU WANT TO TEGAKIE RP WITH ME, I'M MALIK AND I ONLY HAS A SETO AND MOKUBA... ;_; SO I'D LIKE... SOME ONE ELSE. (we may have a jou idk) )

I feel the nostalgia thing, but hopefully I can get people back on tegakie ;_; those were the last fun times i had with the fandom. I've also been wanting to start a rp thing again, but most of my friends from the fandom aren't my friends anymore, or are into other things.... >.>; it's pretty sad. 

And yeh updates. <3

there is million art work up load in DA every month. (it not every day)

I will not call that death by my point of view.

(is more like a large city , that you can find a place that have people more then road to walk ....or place that no single soul to see in sight)

(all of this is change all the time.....nature of life)

Ugh. I told myself that I would never invest my time into creating a tumblr, but I guess at this point I am obligated to...
I spend most of my time on these days, but reviewers are becoming more and more scarce as well. Maybe it's because I write Bronzeshipping... everyone is a Thiefshipper nowadays...
Eh, I don't think the Yu-Gi-Oh fandom is dead necessarily, I think it has just changed.  Everyone seems to be completely invested in the Abridged Series. I swear, if I hear the words 'leather pants' or 'Melvin' one more fucking time, I'm going to choke a bitch.
I think the fandom is declining, most definitely. That's why we need talented artists/writers like you to keep this beautiful fandom from falling into a shit hole. 
Keep on keepin' on! :)

You shouldn't make one. Tumblr changes people for the worst. All the people who've gotten ones are now pretty consistently horrible people. Tumblr is actually a really bad community..

Oh, you write bronzeshipping?

Thank christ I'm not the only one who hates ygotas. It's seriously cancer. I really, really hate ygotas so much...
