Favourite genre of music: Rock & Roll
Operating System: Windows XL
MP3 player of choice: Phillips
Skin of choice: The one keeping all my organs inside my body
Personal Quote: "Do we have any idea what to do for dinner?"
I know perfectly well that DA is oriented more towards the visual arts at the expense of the written, but this is getting silly. My Zootopia fanfiction "The Call" has maybe had about 150, perhaps 200 vies overall on DA, with a handful of likes and reviews. That's no surprise here. The most views I've ever gotten for any of my written works is "Good Landing" at about 3,900 views, and that's been up on DA for eleven years. Even my one Daily Deviation "Chat Room" only got 890 views as of today.

Meanwhile, over at, "The Call" has gotten over six thousand views, and thirty-six reviews. That's since the first chapter was published just ten days ago. Even better,, without charging premiums, gives me a breakdown of where my views are coming from and how often, sometimes with surprising results. [1]

I'm not giving on DA, if only because I need platform for my original fiction, but s certainly impressing me.

[1] I can make a fair guess who the one view from Saudi Arabia is from, but I can only hope whoever was checking it out from Iran enjoyed what they saw.

You need to write some more FYS. This is important for reasons.

Worrrrrking on a it.

Srsly, I've got at least one Pro sci-fi author demanding an anthology of all the FYS stories set on the Ring so he can point people to it.
