Hi, I like to write, take pictures, and on very rare occasions draw terribly.

I'm hoping to get some feedback on my work. I do want to hone my craft after all.

I am available for freelance writing or even photography.

Feel free to drop me a line anytime! I love talking about all kinds of things and I love hearing other people's perspectives!
  1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?

  I've been a member for 4 years and counting!

   2.What does your username mean?

  This is an easy one. I had just watched Animal House again recently when I first was coming up with my username. So I decided if it fits in the entry box then why not use one of my favorite parts of the movie. My name is supposed to read aloud "On Double Secret Probation." Double didn't fit so I used 2x as short hand for it. If you are unfamiliar with the movie here's the scene:
   3. Describe yourself in three words.
      Happy to help. I guess that's probably as good as any three words. I'm always glad to make new friends and talk about things with people.

   4. Are you left or right handed?
      I'm right handed.

   5. What was your first deviation?
      My first deviation was called For Love of the Cake. It's ok I guess. I think I have better work. I'm actually beginning to wind down the whole story. If I can I might just finish it by the end of this year.

Here's the first chapter which was my first deviation: For Love of the Cake Ch1 TG-GBChapter 1
There's something you should know about me. I love cake. It is beyond a doubt the
best food on the face of this universe. Except the kinds with fruit in them. Then it
just gets soggy and gross. Also cheesecake makes me choke. Every time for some
reason I can't eat it with out almost killing myself.  Anyways, this is why I got a
job with a caterer about six months ago. You see there's a wedding between two of
the most rich and powerful families in the city. This is costing millions. They
rented Madison Square Garden for not only the wedding but the reception as well. Now
that's when you know you have power. I had to get a taste of one of the most
extravagant, succulent cake that this town has ever seen. This cake is going to be
epic and I will have the first taste.
The cake is actually 12 smaller cakes that will all be put together and each section
needs to be driven in a separate van. It is as awesome as it sounds. As one of the
drivers it is my job to watch the cak

    6. What is your favorite type of art to create?
        I love to write. I now take pictures for a living but I love photography too and I really should take some more pictures and post them here. I think I only have one up right now and that's a shame.

   7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
      I suppose I'd like to be able to draw. My drawings aren't very good which is why I don't post them on here. I have a lot of doodles I could post. How do people feel about lots of triangles?

    8. What was your first favorite?
      You know I'm not entirely sure. I have all of my stuff in sub folders but here's one of my first favorites which is still a really great story: Scaredy Cat TGScaredy Cat
I was very much almost drunk. Very nearly. I was sure I was pretty close to it but there was no way I was gonna pay for another drink. So I figured I'd ask my buddies for their best stories on the chance that might work at pushing me the rest of the way to drunk. It makes sense when you're very close to drunk.
Victor sat across from me. He was way over the drunk hump and to the point that every little sound was a work of absolute comedy. He'd chuckle through his stubble-speckled lips like an old smoker in a hacking fit. After he managed to drain his beer without giggling into it, I asked him for a story.
My question brought another round of laughs from him. He slapped the table once and said, "Clean out! Notta one. Howbout Roy?" His hand landed on Roy, who sat beside him, with all the subtly of a depth charge. "Got any funny shuff?"
Roy regarded Victor with a wobbling gaze. He was clearly just as drunk as Victor. But he was the quiet type when drunk. He cradled the h

It is written by one of my favorite people majorkerina if you haven't read her stuff then you really, really should and this story is a good jumping on point. Or at least I thought so since it was my first story by her that I read.

    9. What type of art do you tend to favorite the most?
      There's lots of all kinds of art in my favorites. I think it's all good. Most of it is probably art work and comics though which quite a few stories.

    10. Who is your all-time favorite deviant artist?
      Sheesh way to put me on the spot...well I've made so many great friends on dA I would have a super tough time choosing just one. So I'm going to talk about several if that's ok. There's no real order to this and if I didn't mention you don't feel bad. Or if you want to tell me I can modify my journal and add you in.

I've already mentioned my friend majorkerina who is just a wonderful person who is so much fun and writes amazing stories.

Kinggigasmon writes some really inventive comics with fun characters. The jokes in the comics are funny and the dramatic parts can leave you shocked. Nobody draws bloodshot eyes like him!

Glee-chan is a talented artist who has a wit as sharp as her pencil. She introduced me to Cassandra Cain/Batgirl for which I will be forever grateful. In addition to her art she writes some fun stories too.

Midnight-Tea writes about demons and vampires and stuff. But there's no need to worry because Ninian will only bite if you let her. Though recently she doesn't bite any one anymore...but watch out for that Leena!

JocelynSamara creates a comic called Rain. It is a powerful parable for the world we live in today. I think everyone should read it.

  11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?

    I want to meet everyone! I wish there was some kind of convention we could all go to or maybe I could Skype people if they are willing to talk. Is that still a thing? Do people still Skype? Seriously though we should have a convention. Maybe we could have it in the center of America you know like from American Gods by Neil Gaiman. Or at least the first one since there are deviants I want to meet from all over the world. Maybe if someday flights were cheap and a whole bunch of other things came together we could all meet up. But if you need specific people then I'd start with the folks I mentioned in the previous section. 

    12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
    I've made some great friends on here. The art that my friends have made effected me in a lot of different ways but what effected me the most were the people themselves.

    13. What are your preferred tools to create art?
    I mostly type things up on a computer but I occasionally take pictures with a digital camera.

    14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
    I'm not sure. I've come up with great ideas in odd places and not so odd places. Mostly I need a mindset where ideas sort of bump into each other to make something new.

    15. What is your favorite DeviantArt memory?
    My favorite thing is when I get to see or read something really cool. I love looking at a piece of art and being wowed or laughing or if there's a really neat plot twist. Plus I can always fave it and look at it later.


That's the first ever hatchtag I've made. Most of the time I wouldn't but hey it's dA, right?

Sorry to bug you, but how have you been?
On2XSecretProbation Featured By Owner 14 hours ago  Hobbyist Writer
Hey! You aren't bugging me at all! I love talking with you! I've just been super busy lately. This past week was a big one at work and I've been only taking quick glances at dA this week. Some days I've been so busy with stuff outside of work I haven't even turned on my computer when I get home! I've been doing well otherwise. It's amazing what having a job will do for your mental health! Plus today was my Birthday and I had a really good one! There are only a few aspects of my life that need change. I need to write more and I need to read more are two big ones I want to work on. I'm not sure why they've slipped but they have and I feel I have to correct that...

How have you been doing? I've been trying to keep up with your journals...but I've fallen a bit behind. It isn't just your stuff either...
Midnight-Tea Featured By Owner 14 hours ago  Hobbyist General Artist
Oh! Happy birthday. Good timing on my part. It's fine, I'm glad I didn't do anything to drive you off or anything, haha!

Work is good for you, definitely. ANd don't worry, you're not missing too much on my end.

But...Star Trek III! Klingon Christopher Lloyd! @_@...
On2XSecretProbation Featured By Owner Nov 20, 2014  Hobbyist Writer
Oh yeah...well he was ok I guess but Klingon Christopher Plumber got to say "You have not experienced Shakesphere until you have read it in the original Klingon." That's pretty badass.
majorkerina Featured By Owner Nov 20, 2014  Student Writer
Yeah ^^. I mentioned that because I was looking what films you like for the story bit.
On2XSecretProbation Featured By Owner Nov 20, 2014  Hobbyist Writer
Hang on let me check what I put and see if I should add any...actually I don't think it will let me add any more.


Oh wow..that's not even that many listed. I have a ton more favorites but this gives folks a good idea I guess.

*sigh* I suppose there's only a limited amount of space.
