Welcome to wonderfully weird world of Xananathe .

My name is Lydia-Rose, I'm 18 years old and from the quaint little island of England. I'm passionate for art and music, and I have a punk rock soul. I believe in revolution, individuality and seeing the bright side of everything.

"If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise:

If you can dream - and not make dreams your master;
If you can think - and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools:

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: 'Hold on!'

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with Kings - nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And - which is more - you'll be a Man, my son!"

-Rudyard Kipling

With love,

Yes... Yes it does.

The reason I comment is I just, out of curiosity, googled 'Xananthe DeviantArt' to see if it actually lists me. I was like hurray, look, there I am on Google! And then I continued to scroll...

To my dismay, I found countless sites using my work. Some were hosting my work, and linked back, which to be honest I don't mind about. Even the Tumblr ones were okay with me so long as they put the source. But I was shocked to see my art being used as 'free wallpaper download!' and so on and so forth. No link to source. Even a gaming website had used my work... :facepalm:

Anyway, yes, it's deeply annoyed me. But in a weird way, I guess it's a compliment. Because I think someone would have to be a bit doohickey in the brain to want to use my work as a wallpaper. :giggle:

Love but mild irritation,
