I'm Bartan, though I tend to use the Username of Dexdor on other sites. I'm just an open minded hermit that fell through the cracks of society. I spend my days watching the world, rather than be part of it. Other than a Chinese phone book worth of wisdom, enough OC's to sink a ship, and a 14 year story I'm too lazy to write, I don't have too much to offer. But if I have something to say, I mean it with respect. I admit, I can get a bit cynical and pessimistic.
That being said, I'm more of a writer than an artist by traditional means. Mostly due to a bad reaction to a needle in my primary arm, I can't draw very well anymore. But I've felt like my words can paint a picture almost as I envisioned it, better than what my physical being could pull off. Regardless, feel free to check them out. I usually write fantasy stories about dragons and other random creatures that are often not heard of. Though they are usually clean, I will do more mature things from time to time, and give a heads up in the artist's comments if there is one.
I'll also put a bit of a warning here as well. Alot of my inspirations come from music, and alot of that music tends to be on the more Harsh vocal side. Again, I'll place a warning if one is used if you do not enjoy that type of music. Everybody has their tastes, but there's a reason why I suggest a music title or track within these stories. Usually not from lyrics, but the tone of the music itself. My suggestion is to look for it on youtube, let it play in the background, and just try to let it immerse you into the story. Some people tend to have trouble with that, but if you can get it... If you can see it the way I see it, you'll find yourself enjoying the story alot more.
Speaking of those stories, my main library is on FA. It's my most checked site, and... "Arguably" my most... Popular? With no real luck on SoFurry when it came to stories, I'm giving Weasyl a try. If someone here enjoys my work, then it'll be worth it.
One more thing. If you are ever confused about any of the terms I do use, I've recently made a Vocabulary document that hopefully makes things clearer. If it's not on there, feel free to let me know and I'll add it to the list: https://www.weasyl.com/%7Ebartan/submissions/1850341/vocabulary
Just a small update: after the death of my mother, I ended up moving in with a close friend. Unable to upkeep the house with my low income, even with any inheritance (something that would just be drained quickly). I needed to get out of there anyway, too many memories that were just... Haunting me.
The move itself wasn't terrible, but the previous roommate left behind one Hell of a mess. I honestly don't blame her (current roommate) for unable to clean such a thing, let alone after getting the same damn illness me and my mother were plagued with. So after I moved on the 22nd, I spent the past week cleaning with her. We're still not done, due to the garbage truck not coming on the previous Friday to empty the dumpster (and our living room was freaking PACKED with garbage bags).
We didn't have a lot of room to work with, including some place to set up my computer with all the stains on the floor. I barely had a place to sleep, needing to use the tarp that was used to move my bed underneath the mattress so it wouldn't get that horribly stained. I think I worked more this week than I ever had, especially in the cleaning department. We're not done yet, but... Something 'Good' might come out of this.
Regardless, that's why I disappeared for several days: packing, cleaning, unpacking, and getting organized. I don't have the best setup currently, but it's enough to start writing again. Little by little, things will start to feel normal, and though I am having some rough times (like when one of my birds died last Thursday), rough memories... I'm doing alright. Considering.
Your bear will be back to work soon <3
