You want to know how I got my cutie mark?
A famous explorer once said, "The extraordinary is in what we do, not who we are."
I'd finally set out make my mark, to find adventure.
But instead, adventure found me. I was a blank flank well into my teenage years as a young explorer. Fresh from the academy and in search of lost relics, I journeyed to an island. Before anchoring at bay, the ship was cloven in two by an unforeseen storm leaving me separated from any other survivors and washed ashore.
In our darkest moments, when life flashes before us, we find something, something that keeps us going, someting that pushes us.
I had to endure both physical and emotional torture in order to survive the island. But when all seemed lost, I found a truth.
And I knew what I must become.
Thank you for a whopping 146 favourites on my previous Daring Do wallpaper! [link]
I have never had such an overwhelming response to my work before, and it's the first time any of my works hit more than 100 favs, so it's a really big milestone for me!
As thanks, here's another gritty Daring Do wallpaper, this time showing us how she got here.
