Hello my lovlies!
Yesh, ‘tis me, and yesh I am back from my holiday to sunny Greece! It was great; the sunshine, the beaches…everything was brilliant.
Apart from one little thing. Well, a little group of insects. Mosquitoes.
Lemme’ tell you my experience with them whilst I was in Greece:

One day an idiotic girl (aka me) decided to listen to her idiotic father (aka my dad) and go to a restaurant, at night, which was situated underneath trees. Now these weren’t the normal British trees, but trees that were overflowing with mosquitoes. But being the idiot that the girl was she decided ‘Oh, I’ll not wear any mosquito repellent because there are none here! Yay!’
So when the idiotic girl approached with bare, lovely legs (‘cuse my vainity) the little tiny mosquito sitting peacefully in the tree got very hungry indeed. As soon as it saw the girl it thought ‘Ooooh what juicy blood runs through those legs! I might just take a bite’. But that little bugger of the thing did not take one bite but 16.
16 bites on my little legs.
Asshole.
And these weren’t the normal bites, because I had an allergic reaction to them. What was once little red bites turned into…ach, can’t describe them very well. You know blisters? They have water in them? Well imagine them being on my legs but ten times bigger. And two of them happened to be on my big toe.
Not a very nice experience, but there you go.

Now let us move on from the mosquito topic…I am going through your comments/notes/replies but as I’ve only just got back it’ll take some time. But I will get to them, promise!

Update: I am going to be clearing out all of the crap/old works in my gallery, so do not worry if you find some deviations deleted. Also I am in the phase where I am developing my own style of art, which would be a mixture between anime and realistic people. So you might see some different styles xP

Oooh and I am also going to start doing commissions instead of requests! ^_^ For more info, please visit here: mysticthorn.deviantart.com/jou…

xx Lizzie.

Wanna join my uber-awesome contest and win fabulous prizes? Then please visit: mysticthorn.deviantart.com/jou…

Objective of Contest :
Okay so here goes...What do you think that I would look like as an anime person? Would I be a neko, an elf, or just simply an anime/manga girl? When you first come across my page and talk to me what comes to mind? Would I have pink hair, strikingly blue eyes, or even...would I be something like a ninja? You decide. The main aim for this contest is so that I could (hopefully) come up with an anime/manga version of me, and use it in my pictures. That's one of the prizes: Your idea would be used in my drawings! ^_^ After all, I do really need to think of a design >.<
The person (me) that you are drawing would just be called Lizzie, because I'm so uninventive :P
It's entirely up to you on what I would look like! If you need help I have a stock site with many pictures of me on it, and you may use these photos as a base/reference, which could be found here MysticThornStock

Yesh it was ;___; It took me all of my self restraint to stop myself scratching them. I'm so glad that I didn't, otherwise it would've been much worse >.<

:nod: Yeah I know what you mean. I wish I had that kinda restraint. Usually I just have to find ways to keep my hands busy when I get bitten. Usually mosquito's think of me as an all you can eat buffet. It doesn't matter the time of day, I can promise you one will find me. Sadly, bug spray doesn't keep them all away either.

Omigawsh, the spray doesn't keep them away? When I used my dad's one they all kept away as if I was a disease to them or something :P

Welcome back! I feel your pain about the mosquitoes! I'm exactly the same. I went to the countryside of Vietnam and two hours later ended up with like 45 mosquito bites all over. Tis a bad experience. And the mosquitoes over there were HUGE! With white spots! >< It was terrifying.

Yeah really. That was last year, this year, I was smart enough to get rid of any water near the house that mosquitoes could use to breed. And I have medicine to treat it so it doesn't swell up like a balloon.
