Hi, I'm V. It's not my real name - not even close - but I'm Vigilo here, and I've been other V-beginning pretentious Latin usernames elsewhere on the internet for around six years now, so V works!

If you need anything, or if you just want to talk, feel free to comment / note me. :note:

I haven't replied to you yet because
- I reply at a glacial pace
- I accidentally deleted your message and can't find it
- I've awkwardly, silently backed away
- I've already replied to you by somewhere else
- I mentally replied to you and considered the matter closed
- I love you and I don't want to lower your opinion of me any further

Apparently this is what all the cool kids do now.

(I'm fighting a losing battle with my Internet, but I should be properly online by 20th August. At the latest. I hope. I'm sorry, I love you all, have this as an apology. Also, if you're reading this, haven't done this, and want to do this, I choose you - by which I mean, I'm tagging you.)

How long have you been on DeviantArt? What does your username mean?
Five years (yeah, okay, I lied on the 'you have to be [x] age' to be on deviantART, but only by like a few months or a year or something). "vigilo" is "vigilant" (or "to be vigilant", or "watchful", or "I keep vigil", or variations thereof) in Latin. I think 'vigil' was taken so I went with a weird Latin form. (I don't actually know Latin.) I don't know, I've just always liked the idea of vigils. Or I'm Mad-Eye Moody. 

Describe yourself in three words.
Tall*, dark, handsome.

* relatively. I'm tall compared to, say, anyone who's 5'2.

Are you left or right handed?
Right.

What was your first deviation?
Oh, god, it was either a retelling of a Greek or Arthurian tragic myth (ugh) or, more likely, that ridiculous poem, if you could even call it that, which was really just about a mirror, but I thought it was so cool and so subtle, it even had the Corinthians quote on it, oh, god, I'm too embarrassed to check.

What is your favourite type of art to create?
It's definitely not poetry, why would you think that? No, but, honestly, it really is. I love writing poetry. I love everything about it, even the wacky interpretations some readers come up with for it. I mean, writing poetry is basically controlling other people's minds with words, essentially. If I'm doing it well, they feel the way I want them to feel. I'm a super-villain, is what I'm saying here.

If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
I'm a little torn between prose and digital art, but it's probably going to be prose. I mean, digital art. It's gorgeous. I like pretty pictures, but freaking prose, you know? It's so annoying. It's not like poetry at all. I mean, poetry is difficult, but fun difficult. Even if I end up with something terrible, writing poetry is always fun. Writing (non-academic) prose is like going to the dentist. Nothing ever gets done and everything hurts.

What was your first favourite?
Animator vs. Animation by alanbecker

Huh.

What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
Literature.

Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
I started answering this and ended up with a list of too many people for the singular implied in the question, so I'm going to move on. If I'm watching you, I more than tolerate you, so there you are.

If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
I've already met VFreie (who is an actual fencer, what even) and Solarune, and they're both fantastic. I'd like to meet the rest of theWrittenRevolution crew (past and present). Also, zebrazebrazebra, whom I could have met when she was in Shanghai / when I was in Beijing, but didn't. Oh, and, I also want to meet ClioStorm because she's the only one who understands my feelings about comics and particularly DC.

How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
I mean, I've been shamelessly exploiting my exploits at the theWrittenRevolution for reasons, but I'm assuming you mean something less mercenary - okay, no, jokes aside, everyone at theWrittenRevolution, past and present, has done something for me. TheMaidenInBlack, doughboycafe, Carmalain7, VFreie, HugQueen, the rest of the army.

There've been a few people on here who've inspired me a lot, but I'm not mentioning any names, because then they might find out, and they're too cool to ever know I said anything like that, ever.

Also! Solarune's amazing, she's not around here now, but she's easily one of my closest online (and now kind of IRL) friends. She's the sort of person I can talk to on an irregular basis (because let's face it, I talk to everyone on an irregular basis - even people IRL) and still feel like I'm keeping up with. Also, she makes me playlists with folksongs about women at sea. 

I'm not mentioning a lot of people, but that doesn't mean I've forgotten them. I've been (briefly) in other groups like Expose-Lit and others, and in chat events, and in (sometimes accidental!) contact with people who work in entirely different mediums, and they're all important to me.

What are your preferred tools to create art?
All I need is a keyboard and a word processor.

What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
As long as I'm on a chair and indoors, I'm good. Probably better than any other place, I don't usually write well in front of or around other people (except for my parents, but they're different).

What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
Maybe my now-ancient, super-secret, induction to theWrittenRevolution. Maybe the times I got daily deviations / lit deviations / watchers / any sorts of comments and critiques (which, always wonderful, always going to be wonderful). Maybe every single NaPoWriMo. Maybe when I first joined. Maybe every time I write a Writers of the Revolution article, because I freaking love those. I can't actually think up all of them, I've got too many. :heart:

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! Heart

The winter winds blow and we shall have snow
And what will the robin do then, poor thing.
He'll sit in the barn to keep himself warm
And tuck his head under his wing, poor thing.

It's been a breath of fresh air to see you around again, V. You know we missed you more than any of us - even those that are writers! - can put words to, right?

Anyways, you favorited a piece of my writing, and seeing a favorite from you always makes my day. Actually, just seeing anything from you makes my day, but don't let the diminish my appreciation stemming from the fact that you actually took the time to read a piece from me. ;p

All the :heart:s, V.

Darling, I was looking for that lovely poem you wrote based on Federico Garcia Lorca's poem about green. Can you point me in the right direction? Or possibly remind me what the form is called? I'm thinking of writing something like it :)
