SoC: Two long years by dragoonwys SoC: Two long years by dragoonwys
I know that SoC's 2nd anniversary has past by already. But this is more of a personal piece, fun fact, this day is when Mavis first appeared on paper and I have a habit of just giving them birthdays corresponding to their first day of creation lol |D

Wow... looking back, two years....TWO WHOLE YEARS! that's one looooong commitment time for something online. I feel old XDDD

I guess it deserves a good granny ramble. :iconmoistplz: *gets hit*


Tbh for me, it was about all the right timing and luck, it's by chance that I actually stumbled onto Deamond89's profile and watched her.
I still remember the day I read her first SoC journal I was like "O3Oa ohhhhh she's opening an rp group...what's an RP group I never joined one before..hmm I wonder how it's like....." rolled to read all the rule journals and then BAM! Mavis happened.

This group acually forced me out of my shell to draw actual anatomy stuff instead of chibies because it seemed that everyone joining at the time was drawing it like that X'D I didn't even had a tablet back then, I totally just drew and colored in my app in with a mouse lol.
If you went into my gallery right now and count the drawings that were posted ever since I gotten active on dA, Im telling you most of it is SoC stuff Im not kidding
:iconimsotiredplz: Joining this group had a very important impact on my art and me.

So my life could really turn another way if I never joined really, and I might not even be an art student like now I might have turned out as an accountant, an ACCOUNTANT, can you believe it?! XDDD



Like Mavis, I met a lot of people during my time here,
too bad I had to stay cannon for the picture, I can't draw everyone in there since Mavis don't really recognize them, the number of headshots in there can't even cover half of the people I know in SoC LOL.


First enrollments, second, third, fourth and the enrollments went on and on and on; We gotten many new faces and we had also lost some old ones.....
I will not lie...collage....has been eating up my time and I can't really be online or working on SoC stuff most of the time like I used to in the past, I can't even catch up with all the events happening anymore 8''DDD
In the chat, some of you already might notice I might not be as 'talkative' as some of the other members, half of the time I don't really know what to type to react to the topic LOL.

But serious, I enjoy and love every moment spent with the old SoCers and welcoming new SoCers to our growing online family.
 
Im not a rabid blind SoC fan who would say that 'This is the most perfect flawless group ever till the end of the universe, there are absolutely no problems with it at all!"
As much I would want to, no, I know that SoC has it's fair share of flaws and problems like drama, misunderstandings ect happening here and there like any other group.

But what makes it all manageable and not just going out of control collapsing onto itself, destroying the overall member moral and eventually entire group...the SoC mod team that keeps going and does their best so that everybody can continue to have fun AND further helped by understanding members.

Both Mods and Members played a major role in keeping this group alive, either through management or just be friendly, following the group rules and participating in the community.

So thanks *Dx33x and ~Tajaky94  for continuing to care for this group and it's story,
the ENTIRE SoC mod team for keeping this group under control and fun
and all the SoCers that made this group as active as it is.
 

All of you made these two years one hell of a uphill ride.
Stay frosty you SoCers out there old and new, to me you guys are awsome and don't let anyone else pull you down. <3333 :icontouchplz:

__________________________________________________________
On the side note for the drawing,
yeah X'DD Mavis talks to herself way too much, and don't be surprised that you'll find a lot of things in her head that she'll be too embarrassed to say out
first time I did a greyscale to color pic for dA XDD I think it looks okay but it was fun experimenting. And for one person's question...Mavis kinda stays everywhere :iconmingplz: she lives in Specter HQ mainly but sometimes Ira drags her to the Aran Tribe Guild House and sometimes she stays over with Traize; but in this case I guess it was in Specter HQ lol. |D any questions just feel free to ask

-snort giggles at accountant comment through my tears-

You and this and Mavis are so beautiful, I know we always joke about her eating everything and draining Traize's wallet, but she's so sincere and I couldn't imagine SoC or Specter without her, OR YOU <3
It just made my heart all swell up every time I saw one of those footnotes on who she was with doing what when she found the flowers and then the headshots amg I'm so proud that Li's one of the people that she thinks of on this day >u<

It's also been incredible getting to see you (rapidly) advance in your art and your ability to convey emotion has just gotten even better over time, and I'm so happy that you enjoy creating it all as much as we all love seeing it.

but aw gosh no really I was having an off day and then I came home and this gem was chilling in my message box and everything was better I just really can't say how wonderful this is. You just always have happy and nice things to say and joke about and -blubbers- x'D

Omg wys I don't even know where to start this is just so full of all the nice stuff that I'm just sitting here speechless since morning wondering what to say... I can't find words strong enough to depict how I feel about this. I not only see how quickly your art improved to a superb level, but also the tons of feelings you put in your art. This thing here made me smile, because you are wonderful, Mavis is wonderful, this is wonderful and you made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. I feel like I need to thank you, because you always manage to make me smile no matter how I'm feeling with your little pieces of awesomeness. Keep rocking baby <3

XDD and no problems, I so know how that feels, typing out just the artist description was a challenge for me too since I don't know the words I should use, I think I pulled it off though lol. But reading your comments even the short witty ones always make me happy or giggle XDD, I really appreciate it~ Thanks again >v< <3

And I can't wait to rp Iona (and my other SoC bbies) with Mavis and Ira more 8'D ...Can you imagine SoC without Mavis and Ira? I mean...it would be like a ham sandwich without the ham!...or the bread...

As everytime your art impress me and I love the way you put all you feeling in this awesome piece of work. The story through it are beautiful and I'm really glad that I know you. Continue your good working and never forget to put your heart in it like you already did. Since you joined SoC your art improved in many way and you should be proud of it.

You make me cry from joy when I see it. -hug you- ILU girl

Thank -you- for being such a great and awesome member of SoC! It is people like you that make me and Taja enjoy SoC so much that we continue with the story and want to make this group as perfect as possible (even though we don't manage to make it flawless as you said... unfortunately OTL Ah well... still doing our best! >3<)9 )

And the fact that it had such an impact on your life! FFFFF *HIDES* I HOPE YOU WILL NEVER REGRET JOINING SOC!!!!! CAUSE, YES, I THINK YOU MAKE A BETTER ART STUDENT THAN ACCOUNTANT!!! I mean, just look at this wonderful and pretty artwork <333

Thanks a lot for sticking with us for so long and I really hope we will keep on being a group you can feel home in!!

Thanks and your welcomes! Im really glad to read that (though, being not flawless means that you can improve to be better which is good~! And obviously I would love to see SoC get better and better lol 8D you guys are on the right track~)

XDDD yes it did have such an impact for my life, no regretting what so ever. It's practically a chunk of my life, seriously I could see myself years from now, I would look back and say 'SoC, now that was one great group, I had so much fun in there'

And thanks again, it's been fun time sticking around for so long, I hope the best for the group too! >v<

Anyway, I guess it's also here that we should also say a big THANK YOU!! to you as well.

I can definitely say there are just too many things about SOC that wouldn't be the same if you weren't around. You are one of those people who helped make SOC such a great experience definitely, and I don't think enough words will ever show how really grateful we really are for having you in the group for this long. ;w;

So yeah, thank you as well, wys! Keep being awesome~ :iconsweethugplz::iconsweethugplz::iconsweethugplz::iconsweethugplz:
