|Daring Do and the secret of the Fourth Wall|
Thrust into the world of her favorite book-series, Rainbow Dash finds herself dragged along for the ride of Daring Do's latest adventure.
Mind-boggling as it may be, things are about to get far more complicated. For Rainbow Dash, breaking the fourth wall may very well prove to be a learning experience.

Today is ... not the anniversary of the little "Deviant since Sep 26, 2006" note it shows on my userpage.
But it is the 7th anniversary of me uploading my first deviation to the site back in 2007, which is the one that counts in my book.
...Well, it was when I started typing up this journal. Then I got distracted and now it's 4 days later. But let's pretend it's still June 7th, okay?
For those who only started
It is a 13 minute long tribute to the great animator, Roger van der Weide, who inspired me into picking up a
Random fun fact: From start to finish, my first (and a half-th) flash animation took 1 year, 8 days, 21 hours and 41 minutes to completion, and only then did I even tell Roger what I had been doing all this time. Boy, was he surprised.
And yes, I actually know the exact time. XD
I'd imagine that cover image is pretty accurate.
The next mentionable milestone would be Sonic Billiard Adventure, which took 51 weeks to completion, baring a 3.5 month break inbetween.
This movie is a solid 30+ minutes long two-parter.
You can also watch it on youtube, in a version with differently arranged scenes: [link] [link] [link] [link]
But, in actuality I didn't start my artistic endevours by drawing things - even before that, I already did video editing. More specifically, videos of hacked videogames presented in a humorous and/or stylish fashion.
Welcome to... The Legend of Zelda: The Twilight Zone.

Aaaaand apparently I did that one a year before Sonic Billiard Adventure. Huh. I always remembered it being the other way around. Err. ^_^;
And nowadays I of course write fanfiction and then there's ponies and all that, but of course you already know that.
Oh yeah, and that one comic of mine that got featured on Equestria Daily a year ago is now my most viewed deviation, with 43k views.
. . .
For the first year on deviantArt, I drew everything with a mouse. That's not even counting the "Roger Tribute".
It wasn't until October 2008 that I started drawing with a tablet, though I couldn't do without anymore nowadays.
The truly shocking twist, however is this:
Some rare few less than stellar doodles and a single comic aside, I never did any real pencil sketches until September 2012.
Meaning I haven't even been using "Pen and Paper" for two years yet.
Yes, I indeed got inspired to become an artist using a mouse and a "Macromedia Flash 8" trial.
