damphy


Kay, damphy, etc., a purple haired fandom nerd who dreams of one day running away to join the X-Men. I write about fandom and Internet culture, review video games, am an armature mixologist, have worked on reality TV, been a comic book colorist, and write and present panels, including two for San Diego Comic-Con.

I became a volunteer for deviantART in 2004, and have done everything from moderating chat rooms to directing galleries. In 2006, I officially joined core staff as a member of CEA. I am often found obsessively breeding shiny competitive Pokémon, tanking my win rate in League of Legends, and geeking out over various shows, movies, books and games. I love art and artists and genuinely adore all the amazing and sometimes odd creations my job exposes me to on a daily basis.

Be good to each other!

Nintendo scored points with fans who have been longing for more diversity and representation in games by confirming that newest title in their Fire Emblem series will allow for same-sex relationships.
While this announcement has made headlines, Fire Emblem will not be the first time that Nintendo has allowed players the option of a same-sex union.
In 2005, the Bokujō Monogatari series, Harvest Moon to English s

While Atari may have defined a generation of gamers, Nintendo has both ushered in and held the hearts of several generations with their unique combination of affordable consoles and memorable characters. Mario may have been born a supporting character in Donkey Kong, but he has climbed the ladder, or perhaps slid up the pipe, to become not only Nintendo’s mascot, but one of the most recognizable characters across the globe.

Few phrases are more closely associated with the Game of Thrones fandom than this one. We know that winters in Game of Thrones are long, often lasting several years. It is also difficult for people in that world to predict when the seasons will change, the Citadel even has a special, rare breed of white raven they send out to deliver the news of the changing season. While this may just be the way that the seasons in the world of Game of Thrones

“Harvest Moon” is known in Japan as Bokujō Monogatari.
In a day and age when critics are openly decrying violence in video games, one game in particular is finding great success without the element of fighting or any kind of violence. Harvest Moon first premiered in Japan in 1996, and has grown into a thriving franchise with more than 20 games in the Harvest Moon seri

Deviousness Award

Deviousness Award
`damphyr is one of those people who form an essential building-block of any community and we're especially grateful to have her in ours. Helpful to new deviants and old alike, she goes out of her way to find great art not only to highlight in her journal but also to suggest countless Daily Deviations to be put up as well. She's always ready with constructive criticism of the highest quality. While others moan about deviation violations, she does her deviant duty and reports them. Like any other great artist, she's never afraid to try new things for the sake of her art. For being not only a wonderful deviant but a wonderful artist as well, we recognize damphyr with our award for Deviousness for October 2004.

Rest well, Pumpkin Spice

Journal Entry: Tue Dec 6, 2016, 4:09 PM
It's a sad day, my heart is broken. 11 years ago, my family brought home the cutest, sweetest little orange tabby the world has ever known. He was so sweet, so brave and so full of adventure.
So Tired by damphyr
When we adopted Ozzy, he was terribly ill, and his tiny little fuzzy body was covered in fleas that were almost as big as he was! A little TLC and a few trips to the vet and he rebounded like a pro. He's been the light of my family for the past decade, and I have to say, the decision to move across the country was that much more difficult for not getting to see him all the time.

His health took a turn for the worse recently. We thought we'd lost him twice to kidney failure, but twice he rebounded. He spent the weekend in my mom's lap, giving her the heads up that it was time. Today was the end of his struggles. I'm happy to know that he's no longer in pain, but I will miss him more than I have words for.
Curious by damphyr
Rest well, Ozzy. Thanks for being our Sunshine Kitty, our Pumpkin Spice Latte. Thank you for watching over my mom, and thank you for being a part of my life.

I wish I could have said goodbye. I'm going to miss you.
:heart:

Oh, so you're the one :damphyr: is named after! Was always curious about the strange names some of the emotes had. 

Your tweet about online recipe reviews made me laugh and cringe so hard just now. I relate far too much, haha.
