Journal History





I know I'm not doing it in February as I normally do, but I've been growing up and needing webcomics less and less then I used to. So a yearly schedule isn't ACTUALLY required anymore, but I'm calling it '2015' for namesake, also because with such a small amount now I find it hard to believe I'll actually get rid of any for quite a while.

But without further ado, The comics that made it past my filter, and a total of 5 that have survived since 2008.

2015 Webcomics
#1.5 Comic 3, once Abstract Gender, I've now replaced it on my list, because although it will always hold a place in my heart, AG was taking up a spot that I could put another comic in.

#2.5: comics 3, 16, 18, and 26 all contain a fair bit of adult content, I feel a small warning is in order for those that want more of a serious webcomic experience, as opposed to a leisure one.

#3: comic 6, Misfile, it may appear to be very similar to the comic I wrote myself (Gender Swapped) but the truth of the matter is that it was never originally #6, the ORIGINAL #6 (Cameocomic) sort of ended, so I replaced it with one, I think it was July 2008 when I found Misfile... either way, I never meant to copy it, it was a freak coincidence.

#8 I'm currently in the process of reading several webcomics in my spare time (I'm sort of procrastinating in the fact that I haven't read any of them in a while, but I intend to return one day) obviously I can't number those here, but here's how many I have. Fourteen, they're called: First Day For everything, Gravston, Demon Aid, WTF Comics, Whomp!, Paradigm Shift, Fans, KIWIS BY BEAT, Hero Oh Hero, Far Out There, The Gospel of Carol, Home, ChaosLife, and Three Dollar Bill. They may make it to the list eventually, but not today.

Webcomic Clean-out
I've gotten a bit busy lately and don't really have the free time I used to, so as a result I keep putting off doing my webcomics check each day.

It's just too time consuming, and with each day I don't do it the task keeps getting more and more daunting, so I made a difficult decision. To cut out alot that I really don't care very much about the story of anymore.

It's the unfortunate part of growing up, as a teenager you do alot of something to cope with angst, and as you grow older you continue to do it because you enjoy it, it becomes a hobby.  But as you do new things your older hobby takes a passenger seat in your life, and then it slowly dies as you fill your time with different hobbies.
The title of this journal is a metaphor, it's my attempt to symbolize stars out in the universe fading into nothingness billions of years from now. But you and I both know that everything I just said is kind of BS. What this journal's REALLY about is confirmation of what everyone already knows.

I'm finally leaving DA.

It's kind of been coming for a while now, and I had a good run, but it's time to stop fooling myself and officially call it. Now don't get upset, I've been thinking about this for a good while now, so this isn't a spur of the moment thing, I HAVE put thought into this. But when I think back to the glory days, when I was a terrible writer with a drive to put out as much literature as humanly possible, well it was a good time, but I haven't been that way since Gender Swapped. And, well...I've changed over time I guess.

In truth I guess I left DeviantART in November 2011, since then I've just sort of been lurking, posting the odd lit piece here or there, but not really contributing that much past the odd comment or two. Maybe I'd favourite something here, and write a journal there. But I'm done.

...No, that's a bit of a lie, I'll still check up on things, answer a question if anybody thinks to ask one. And I'll post anything I write in the future. But I won't really contribute to the community at large anymore, I won't comment on art I like, and I won't really instigate anything anymore. And this will be my very last journal entry.

-I'll be moving the comic check thing I do every year to deviation format instead of journals, that way it'll be easier to keep track of.


Well this is it I guess, I never thought I'd join the ranks of people that've moved on from here. But life is as life does, DeviantART simply doesn't offer me the same fulfillment I once got out of it.

If you'd like to still keep track of me while I adapt to different websites, I'm currently very active on Youtube,… and Tumblr,

My final words of wisdom? "If life isn't working out for you, well, then hope to god that you have a backup plan of some kind. Your destiny ain't growing on the tree out back, you know."

Hello once again audience! When we last left off I was quoting a famous youtuber to start off my introduction bio!

Hey everybody, I go by alot of names, so you you refer to me by whatever of my monikers you may come across, but I prefer Keyes. If you want to learn about me you came to the right place. To start I'm say I'm a GIANT gamer nerd. Not for specifically one thing, I'm the rare brand of passionate nerd that's a good blend of liking many, MANY different things to a reasonable extent, I'm basically saying I don't really specialize in much.

But yes, I'm a nerd, as mentioned, or even as witnessed anywhere on this homepage or in my favourites folders. But I'm very into Webcomics specifically, hell I even ran one for a couple years, I technically didn't finish, and DO plan to return to it, but for the time beings I'm good not doing that.

Another thing that makes me awesome is that I'm particularly hard to figure out, this is especially true about my gender, go on I dare you to figure it out, I am not MAN, nor am I WOMYN, I simply am. And if you think that's bad, you should true figuring out my sexual orientation (there's gotta be a shorter way to say that) yeeks! Or my real name, age, where I live, my religion.

In short, I'm the perfect mix of detached and out-going, try not to let that make you feel inferior to me, or superior for that matter.

And on this final note, I bid you all adieu.
