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
...Creative title, I know. But I'm not really sure what else to call it and I'm not that good of a show-bear/ringmaster >>; And no, I'm not dressing up for the part
Real quick before we get to the contest thingy, just a little reminder that it is my birthday on the 16th of March. I still don't like it, but I'm trying to be 'better' about it to perhaps turn those feelings around. If you were planning on something or just want to wish me a happy one, there's your reminder.
Now onto the "Contest". For the past couple of years I tried to do something different for April Fools; that is something not "Dickish". The first (Somethere Out Where - Death To You Love) was just a joke about how I tend to replace words that make me cringe and taking that concept too far. That story barely got noticed at all.
The next was Gotta Be Somebody, my first and only Vore story to this day. And that one did surprisingly well. It's not my fetish in the slightest, but I'm glad people liked it.
The third (last year's) was... Clouds Over California?
Yeah, Clouds Over California. Basically a Kaiju, Macro, Building Destruction and Sexing piece that nobody asked for. It didn't do well either >>; (I can't imagine why)
Anyway, this year I'm going to kinda do something perhaps fun if I can get enough participation: I'm going to ask people for... Less "ideas" and more just "Keywords" for me to cram together into a story. (The more I'm typing this out, the more I'm regretting it) I'll try my best to make it 'not a joke story' but I'm only mortal >>;
Now, I'm not going to ask you to "watch me" or "Favorite This Journal" or some other crap like that. But I am going to have to ask you for a comment on this journal, whereas I'd like you to leave up to five keywords in a comment here. Like so:
Just 5 things (mostly fetishes, try not to include actual characters like Spyro or Renamon) that you'd like to see, and by the time of my Birthday- If I remember >>; -I'll choose the five most suggested. Now, I'll only count one comment per journal, but also per Site as well. Meaning this will be posted on 4 different ones, so you can have up to four entries:
However, this really depends on people actually participating. And if I get less than 7 comments across ALL sites by the 16th, then I'm just going to cancel it. That's less than two people putting in the effort to provide suggestions. Work together (or don't) and you can meet this comically low bar.
Aside from that, I will have final say about which tags go into the story. For example, I'm not into Vore, but I'll give it a shot like before. However, I detest Diaper, so that is a no-go. Same with Human- UNLESS it's mixed with Transformation. Then... I'll accept "Human" for that one thing.
I thought this would be fun/interesting, don't let me down guys.
...Also >>; Please don't make me regret this too badly.
