Journal Entry: Tue Jan 6, 2015, 3:56 AM


I got tagged by Alice-in-Black This was hard work, answering all these questions about myself. I feel exposed. :ninja:

What does your Deviantart name mean and why?

It’s short for Gaspode the Wonder Dog who is a character from Terry Pratchett’s Discworld novels. Why? Well, Gaspode is a bit of an anti-hero. Life regularly treats him rough and he tells himself he’s a cynic who doesn’t care. Inside though, he’s a marshmallow. Some nasty bugger had already taken the name so I added a random 5 at the end.

2) What fandom were you obsessed with when you joined and what are you into now?

Neverwinter Nights 1 and 2. Now it’s Dragon Age: Origins. Never liked DA2 and haven’t played Inquisition yet. I can feel some Witcher coming on though...

3) How many watchers do you have now?

Goes off to look… 90.

4) Name 3 of your favourite artists on DA

Oh dear lord! Ok, to narrow it down I will be strict and stick to artists. I have friends and artist/friends here but to choose three amongst them would be impossible. Sorry guys! So here are simply three of the many artists I admire from afar:




5) Love life or lack thereof?

Clinging to my Irish boyfriend since 1990

6) Do you participate in clubs' contests here on dA?

Very rarely. I work too slow and seem to get less and less free time.

7. What is your most popular submission?

The most viewed one is ‘Bishop and Karnwyr - Time Out’ but it’s also one of my oldest so it’s probably more a sign of how long it’s been around. Of the newer images ‘I will never hurt you...’ has a ridiculous amount of viewings compared to most of my images.

8. What are your favorite non-anime TV shows?

Battlestar Galactica (the new one)


Edge of Darkness

(and many more…)

Tag a quality deviant, You’re it! Quality doesn’t mean that you have a lot of followers, or a lot of messages. It means that you’re nice to other people, and you deserve to be happy. If you get this message, someone is telling you that they love you as you are, and they don’t care how much followers you have. Send this to 10 deviants who deserve it. If you break the chain, nothing will happen. But it’s just good to let someone know that you love them! :D (Big Grin)

P.S. I see you've already been tagged by Leslie, don't care, now you're twice nice ;D
