(c wat i did thar Supairo )

1. tell me that sweet sweet sexuality of yours

tbh I'm only gay for you, Supairo (Even though that sentence makes exactly zero sense to say wtf)

2. how do you feel about BERNIE SANDERS

He's pretty cool and he doesn't afraid of anything. Respect.

3. will you raise a strictly scalie household as an adult

lolno!

4. do you do the four hundred and twenty?????

Nope, I've been in Amsterdam enough times though @_@

5. do you like steven universe???????????????????????????????

I haven't watched it! I know a lot of people who like it though, and it seems pretty cool C:

6. if you had to have any unnatural hair color what would it be

IDK maybe a sort of very dark shade of blue? Failing that I'll just let Supairo dye my hair and pick any colour she likes, she seems like she knows more about these things than me.

(I may regret saying that in the future)

7. i already ran out of things to ask i have failed you

Sorry but I know that's not true because I can see you've asked me 6 other things after this :^)

8. tell me 5 things that you l o v e

My family, my friends, music, video games and Pokemon

Oh, and Supairo ofc.

9. fave pokemon? (if u dont like pokemon get the hell out of my house)

Lugia ofc.

10. preferred media when it comes to art?

I lean more towards writing and music when creating but in terms of appreciating other people's work on here I find that costume work is what I find the most impressive.

11. any pets?

Nope, never D=

12. have you had *gasp* the SEX

...nope :S

13 things about me~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Shade's Questions ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1. Are you seriously about to answer these questions???

Bro, I am about to answer the FUCK out of these questions.

2. Game on, what's your favorite scent o candle?

Uh, I don't really use scented candles at all, so n/a.

3. Now what's your favorite scent for soap?

Whatever the Dove smell is meant to be.

4. You're on DeviantArt, so that means you like some kind of furry critter. What is it?

I lean more towards scaly critters than furry critters, but I do have a soft spot for jackals C:

5. Ever done any. . . D r U g Z?! (Don't do 'em kids.)

Does sitting in a Dutch "coffee shop" and breathing in the "atmosphere" count? If not, no.

6. Are you surprised I haven't asked you anything. . . ADULT YET?!

I'm mentally preparing mysef, don't worry.

7. Have any original characters (do not steal)? Talk about one for a sec, would ya?

dusty city by batnoise

This guy. THIS GUY. You know, it's funny. I've always struggled with the idea of seeing Viper (the aforementioned THIS GUY in the picture) as me, even though he's technically the closest I have to a fursona in that he shares a lot of my personality traits. I still very much have that mental divide, to the point where I find it a lot easier in role play chats to RP pretty much anyone except him. He also hasn't changed much over the years, if at all, probably a reflection on the fact that I feel I haven't changed much myself. I still love his design. C:

Maybe one day I should get a suit... maybe...

8. Coffee or tea?

Tea, but only because I like Ice Tea, I just don't do hot drinks in general.

9. What happy things are you grateful to have in your life? C'mon you, get mushy!

I have a lot of things to be grateful for right now. Maybe more than I deserve, I dunno. A mostly happy family, not having to worry about where food/water is coming from every night... I mean there's not much more you can ask for than that, really.

10. What's your favorite style of underwear and why isn't it 100% cotton hipster panties?

I wear Brazilian underwear. Lupo boxers. Look it up. Beats hipster panties. Sorry not sorry.

11. What kind of tunes do you enjoy?

 
Songs made out of the dreams and hopes of humanity.

Songs made of fears.

The sound of tomorrow.

The sound of yesterday.

Generally speaking stuff that by most people's standards lasts too long.

12. Are you regretting your answer to question 10 yet?

Uh, no? Why would I?

13. You made it! Congratz! Now please, reflect on the experience?

This was pretty fun actually, thanks for tagging me ShadeAtill . I particularly enjoyed doing the music one and talking about Viper, that was a good one to get off my chest I guess, even if it seems like to silly thing to get off of one's chest.

=========My Questions ==========

1. Talk about a piece of art that changed your life. Can be any medium.
2. Is there anything you like that you're ashamed of liking? (You can just say yes or no, you don't have to share what it is).
3. Do you feel apathetic about politics?
4. If you could visit any one state in the US tomorrow which would you go to?
5. If you could see any one musical act from when they were at the peak of their popularity/success, who would you see?
6. How do you feel about GMOs?
7. If you have are a furry/have a fursona, do you see that fursona as "you", or just a character?
8. Are friends electric?
9. What's the biggest monetary purchase you've made as a treat to yourself?
10. Pokemon, yay or nay?
11. Would you conisder yourself more gauche, or droite?
12. Have these questions been too personal?

  1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?

    7 flippin' years. Too long.

  2. What does your username mean?

    Xatu + Natu = Xanatu. It's also an allusion to Xanadu by Rush :)

  3. Describe yourself in three words.

    Emotional, honest, weird

  4. Are you left or right handed?

    Right Handed

  5. What was your first deviation?

    Something that's now in my scraps, I'm fairly sure! My first unscrapped deviation though was the crazy tale of a band that goes through some... let's say line up changes. Sick Sick SickAdrian sounded the opening chords on his guitar, the crowd waiting patiently for the explosion of instruments that would soon follow. The crowd must have known the song well, because the band and the crowd all jumped at exactly the same time when all the instruments sounded in unison. Ivan, the bassist was avoiding jumping too flamboyantly, as he was more focused on the bassline of the song "sick sick sick" which is what they were playing. Adrian however, was a lot more energetic and was jumping high on each chord strum. Gerald, who was by his own definition "a bit demented", was one of the few drummers that stood up while playing. He mashed the bass pedal so hard, he was already on his third one for just this show. The singer, who everyone called "Bulby" was an extreme Queens of the Stone Age fan, and knew all the words to just about all of their songs. Inspite of his nerdiness, he was excellent at singing and opened loudly:
    "Young, dumb, don't see a problem,
    Bloodshot, Stare like a h

  6. What is your favourite type of art to create?

    Music, without a doubt!

  7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?

    Digital art, or I guess any sort of visual artistery in general. It's the kind I stuggle the most to grapple with/improve at.

  8. What was your first favourite?

    I think it was an avatar done by a friend of mine on a no longer active account, I reorganized my favourites recently so the chronological order of things is harder to retreive.

  9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?

    Recently it seems like pictures of really impressive costumes/cosplays. The effort that goes into some of those is insane.

  10. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?

    It's so harsh having to pick only one, but I'm going to have to go with :iconlilleahwest:. That gal works WAY too hard on all her projects. And her costume work... just WOW.

  11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?

    Oh god, again can I say everyone? I think the title would have to go to :icondrekian: though. Absolutely swell dude, a bit of a kindred spirit in my eyes :)

  12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?

    There's been a few, but I'll give special mention to :iconpocket-fulla-shells: who I not only went on to meet IRL but who else ended up becoming one of my best friends ^^

  13. What are your preferred tools to create art?

    Garageband and musical paraphernalia.

  14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?

    I don't really have a place as such. Musical inspiration can come from the strangest places...

  15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?

    I'd have to go back to 2009-2010, when I started making so many friends and realized what it meant to be participate in a community where respect and caring was mutual. Good times, and I think they shaped who I am today for the beteter :)
