I realize it's been a very long time since I spoke to you all, and I'm very sorry about that. It was never my intent to just up and abandon everything, but as I'm sure most of you know, I recently started college, and of course, my school work has to come first.

That being said, I'm really loving SCAD. I feel like I'm learning a whole lot, my art is making so much improvement, and I'm really growing as an Artist in a way that I never could have before, and it's having a radical impact on my work.

THAT being said, I feel like I've had to make some tough choices. I'm growing a lot, and I feel like what I have up on the internet doesn't reflect that. The stories I have posted never had a chance to develop and expand the way my others have, and my drawings are all from a time before I began really learning and focusing on my art the way I am now.

So, long story short, I'm putting everything to a stop.

I'll be starting a new dA account in two weeks. If I follow you with that, or you can find me, great--but please don't bug me about anything concerning this account. I may leave it up, but I'll more than likely take it down, so if you want to save anything I have for any reason, please do it now.

Really, I regret that I wasn't able to finish To Jest for a Jester and the Obsessive Fangirl series. But the thing is, I'm just not happy with them anymore. I know as a storyteller, I have so much more potential than what I have in those fics, and I've lost the motivation to work on them. I could suck it up and just write it out for the fans, but that isn't a story I would be happy writing, that isn't a story any of you would want, and that isn't a story that these characters deserve. I don't feel comfortable doing that. The stories may or may not remain posted on FF, since if I start writing fanfics again for whatever reason, I'll more than likely move to Ao3. But, just in case, I'd recommend saving those fics if you absolutely have to have them. One day when I actually have the time, will, and skill, I might pick fangirl back up and write it the way it needs to be written, but don't hold me to that. I have a lot of original stories that I need to be focusing on.

I just really need to make a fresh start on a clean slate, and I figure now is as good a time as any to do exactly that. I'm sorry that this has to be good-bye, but with any luck, you'll be hearing from me again soon.

So, all of my current accounts on the internet (Tumblr included) may or may not be disappearing soon. At the least, they are going to become innactive. I'll be starting a new Tumblr, and in a couple of weeks, a new dA. If you can find them, follow away, but please, I don't want any drama.

I really hate to do this to you guys--you've all been so loyal and nice to me when I was first getting my start artistically. But, I've just hit that point where I feel like I can't move forward because I'm stuck in the past.

A final note: there's a few contest winners that I owe prizes to. I have all your information, they are in progress, and I will get those to you as soon as I can. To anyone that I was beta-reading for, or was beta-reading for me, I'm really not at a point where I can deal with any of that right  now. It was really fun, and an awesome experience, but until I get used to juggling schoolwork enough that I can take on an original project again, it's just not going to happen. I'll contact you all from my new account, so feel free to wait for me, but if you want to look for another partner, please feel free. I can't make any promises to how reliable I'm going to be.

With that, I have to bid you all farewell. You've been wonderful, and maybe I'll be hearing from some of you soon.

Thank you for everything.

-Livi

Hello I am very sorry that this happened and you stopped writing both fics because both were amazing (especially fan girl) but I was wondering if you ever see this comment I may have a link to your new DA via notes if you don't want it posted here because even if you don't continue these works I may see more of your amazing work

Aw, its sad to see you go, but I'm glad you're moving up with your art~
I sure will miss your fanfiction too, you've honestly been one of my biggest inspirations on this site, so I wish you luck in the future~
If I ever happen to find you, I hope to see all your new creations and ideas <3

I know I never really talked to you much (or at all, I think), but good luck, Mowo.

When it comes to your art and writing, you have to do what YOU want and what YOU feel is the best step for you.
It's a fantastic thing that you are going with your original work and moving on to be a greater artist. :)
Sure, we will miss your fanfics and what not (I know I will, because you are one of my favorite fanfic writers) but that's nothing compared to how you will feel once you really just put it all down and work on your original work.
Now you have all the freedom you want, and I know you will make some amazing stories. :)
Good luck, hun!

Just when I started loving Obsessive Fangirl... Oh well, I don't blame you, I've had tons of closed or inactive accounts on the internet.

Aww, I'm really going to miss Obsessive Fangirl. :(

But...I understand; this isn't the first time I've seen someone move on to a clean start.
It probably won't be the last time, either. :p

Good luck out there! :)

Good luck your new journey Miss.Mowo!
-smiles gently- I hope everything goes simply perfect for you. You've had a big impact on me, so I had to atleast say a little something of a goodbye.
May the stars watch over you and your future amazing works. =)
