(Since it's hip to write one of these nowadays.)
My dA story could begin in the fall of 2009, or it could begin in the summer of 2013. Personally, I feel that it's better to focus on the present than the past (except where applicable), and I believe my 2013 self was much smarter, braver, and more focused than my 2009 self, so we'll just say that it began in the summer of 2013.
So the summer of 2013. Lots of crazy, life-changing things were happening to me that year. But let's not dwell too much on them. Let's just dwell on dA. To avoid conflict with the "fall of 2009" continuity, I'll just say that I had some friends who talked and chilled on dA, and I wanted to talk and chill with them, so I joined. And I've been posting stuff here ever since.
This is my first deviation that I posted:
This is my most recent:
And lots of cool stuff was posted in between. And lots more cool stuff will follow.
Until then, here's an ultra-creepy/-hilarious gif of Ramsay Snow waving a sausage around in the air to haunt your dreams:
