On Fire by Umbrocity
On Fire
This is a photo from last midsummer, which is a day we celebrate by lighting bonfires and having fun before, during and after the fire. I've got this tradition of standing in front of the bonfire and having a picture taken of it. That's it.

Hellololololololololooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo everyone! It's Will aka William aka Umbra aka Umbrocity aka Root of All Evil (according to *Censored*)! So, I thought since something quite important has recently happened in my life that I'm obligated to tell all y'all about it. I'll also be sharing a pretty funny little story after that, so if you don't care about life updates, first of all, cat, and second of all, you can at least check that out.

So, what's happened in the life of William? Well, I'm happy to inform you all that I finally have a job Markiplier's Epic Dance! 50x50 Gif I'm currently working at a printing company my godfather is working at as well, which is how I got the job. My work consists of sorting papers, files and other miscellaneous items, laminating, packing cargo, running errands and other such small-time tasks. Storage work tends to be like that. I have a very enjoyable work environment, a cool boss and nice co-workers(for the most part). I'm going to be working there until the end of December, so what began as an intended summer job turned into an occupation lasting for the rest of the year. This is my first job and so far it hasn't disappointed me. It is very monotonous to repeat the same thing over and over again for 8 hours, minus a 30-minute lunch break, a coffee break and potential bathroom breaks, but I'm not about to complain about having something to earn my own money by.

So, what about the funny story? Well, if you're claustrophobic you might not find it so funny, but me and my mother got stuck in an convenience store elevator on the way to the car. We got in the elevator with our shopping cart rather full of groceries and beverages, I pressed the button that would take us to the second floor and... The elevator got stuck after moving half a meter, leaving us basically on the first floor, but when we tried to open the doors, they would open. Eventually a crew of firemen managed to open the doors and get us out. But the funny thing is, we were completely comfortable in there, in that tight space. Most people would probably freak out, but us? Oh no, we just cracked jokes about amateur reporters and photographers coming to interview us and to take pictures, and about how my dad would probably blame the whole fiasco on me pressing the button the wrong way or something just as ridiculous, and we enjoyed some sweets and lemonade as well. We were in no rush as we didn't have anything that required immediate cold, like milk, so we waited patiently and made the best of the situation, even making fun of the store's customer service not answering our call and how we had to contact the company that actually manufactured the elevators to get help. My mother even told me about her co-worker and close friend who had gotten stuck in their office building's elevator and had completely freaked out. We had a good laugh, partially on her expense and partially because neither of us was that nervous. Even the moment we established the elevator wasn't functioning was rather humorous, as I took a couple of seconds to examine the control panel's buttons and merely mentioned, in an extremely deadpan tone, I might add, that: "This elevator's busted." It may just be me who finds that funny, but my favorite type of humor is when someone says something funny but their tone implies that they're serious, making it sound a bit like sarcasm. So, me and my mom got stuck in an elevator, had a blast and laughed at the people outside panicking more than we did. Ahh, the spices of life.

Are you a fan of Fire Emblem Awakening? Would you like to be a part of something big? Are you or do you know a voice actor? Well, in any of these cases, among others, you should be aware of this!

I myself am still pondering whether or not I want to take part, but if any of you would like to or know someone who might, do not hesitate! Fandubbing all Fire Emblem Awakening Support conversations is a big goal and even if I don't end up in the project, I want to see this happen so much I could explode!
Hello, people. This is William Johan Jacob Taylor. And no, that is not my actual name. It's the English translation of my real one, as it's much easier for foreigners to pronounce than my Finnish name. This is an explanation I've had to give dozens of times two years ago, and again this year, when I was visiting the French monastery called Taizé. The first time I went there I was a foolish, childish 16-year-old who just wanted to travel and who ended up meeting a bunch of amazing people and even gaining a little confidence in himself.

But the second time I visited, which was about a week ago, was a totally new yet familiar experience. The place was the same, identical to what I remembered it to be two years ago, but the time I spent there was used completely differently. I met dozens of amazing people again, sure, but this time they felt more genuine and more interested in the more spiritual aspect of Taizé, much like I was, and still am.

What makes Taizé a journey in two ways? It was a physical journey, starting from my home door and ending up at the monastery, and then traveling the same way backwards, back to Finland. But more importantly, it was a spiritual journey for me. It didn't take me long to realize these young, 18-year-olds I met and made friends with were just as interested in Taizé as I was, and that allowed me to have wonderfully deep conversations with each and every one of them, even if not everyone spoke perfect English. I didn't mind, surprisingly. All I wanted to do was to delve deeper into these people's thinking, and it was rewarding on so many levels.

The most prominent part of my time in Taizé were a bunch of Irish people I met on the first and second day. I won't spill any names, as I don't want to screw that part up, but I will say they quickly became my go-to friends at the place and I quickly started favoring their company over those who came with me from Finland. Big surprise, I know. I hope to keep in touch with them for as long as possible, and I'm sure they feel the same way.

I even had a bit of a crush at Taizé, actually. I fell for this one German girl who was really quirky and funny, and attractive, but I look at personality before any amount of looks. But when I went on to suggest a relationship, very subtly and slowly as I do because I'm very shy about that sort of stuff, it turned out she was not looking for a relationship. She apologized but I didn't even need that. I understand that in people, especially when school is still a part of their lives. So we stayed friends and went our separate ways when it came time for us both to leave. And, to tell everyone the truth, it became very clear to me that there was someone else I would rather ask for that sort of thing from. Someone who lives much closer, in Finland, in fact. What? You want to know who this girl is? Fuck no! I'm not about to make a public confession. But what happened with this German girl did give me more confidence in myself and talking to other people. It showed me that people are more open-minded and understanding than I thought.

And so, I end with some final words and a song I find very inspiring at the moment. These words of wisdom were spoken by one of my Irish friends: "Finns are fuckin' crazy." And the song is: 

Thank you for reading, and good night.

Finland
Greetings, all creatures who walk this Earth! My name is Will, or if you prefer pseudonyms and/or nicknames, Umbra. Out of the gutters of the capital area of Finland, I hail with my sailor cap and marine blue vest! I'm in the midst of a time-consuming project, which is the development of my very own strategy PG, Feral Revolution. My current output of art will be mainly focused on the game's characters, weapons, items and such. I have a group set up for the project, so if you wish to check that out, here's the link: feralrevolution.deviantart.com…

I am a dedicated Pokémon fan, which is going to show in my art in the near future. I enjoy both the causal and competitive aspect of the games, I don't particularly like the anime, I haven't read the manga, but the games are what keep me rooted with the franchise. I also love other franchises like Fire Emblem, Megaman, particularly the Zero series, Ratchet & Clank, Sly Cooper, Legend of Zelda, Super Smash Brothers, Street Fighter and Scribblenauts, as well as some individual games such as Dust: An Elysian Tail and Team Fortress 2. If you are a fan of any of these franchises or games, hit me up! We'll have a grandle time! Also, if you have a sense of balance and you have a Sonic Fan Character or a Pokémon character, roleplays are always welcome on my end!

Not that many people know me yet, so it would probably be a good idea to shed some light into the matter. Just who is this William Taylor?

-I am an only child, born to an older-than-average couple with a 14-year age gap. Both my parents were over 35 when I was born, my father was about 48. It was strange at first, but eventually I learned to accept it.
-My absolute favorite gaming franchises are Pokémon, Legend of Zelda and Fire Emblem.
-My favorite Pokémon game is Pokémon Alpha Sapphire.
-I am the last person to know about anything game-related, despite being a huge video game fan.
-Both my parents are very skeptical of video games, making it difficult to pursue a gaming career for me.
-I wish I was more popular so I didn't have to feel inferior compared to all my internet friends.
-I am a fanatic of Chinese and Greek mythology.
-I have a YouTube channel but it's as empty as an African's stomach at this point. I plan on uploading video game countdowns and Pokémon-related content once I get my hands on the proper equipment.
-My favorite Pokémon is Umbreon.



-I hate event Pokémon and Shiny Pokémon because they have fake value. If you want a further explanation, ask me.
-The only two video game couples I support are ZeroXCiel and Silvaze.


(Couldn't find a ZeroXCiel fan button. If someone has made it or could make one, I will love you forever. Not romantically, though.)

-I don't favorite sexual material for everybody to see.
-I think patriotism is stupid. If you want a further explanation, ask me.
-I like disturbing Pokédex entries.
-I have a knack for languages. If anyone wants to speak any Swedish, German or Spanish with me, I'm open to it.
-if you're interested in Finland, ask me. I'd be glad to tell you more.
-I love British, self-satirizing humor.
-I think MLP is cute, though I don't consider myself a brony by ANY definition of the word.



-I like some Vocaloid artists, particularly Megurine Luka.



-I think Knuckles' design change in Sonic Boom is awesome.
-I think Blockade Entertainment screwed up Murray for the Sly Cooper movie.
-I kill snipers in Team Fortress 2 in my spare time.
-I refresh my inbox every five seconds.

Now for the rest of what I'm a fan of:
