Are you scared of..

[] the dark
[] staying single forever ((Once upon a time, I was dreadfully afraid of this, but :iconastralscribe: is the angel that freed me from that fear. <3))
[] being a parent
[] giving birth ((If I was a woman, either I would be or there's something about a female mind that makes them feel more prepared to do this.))
[] being myself in front of others
[] open spaces
[] closed spaces
[] heights
[x] dogs ((They surprise the hell out of me if I see them without knowing they were there. And if I so much as hear a chain-rustling sound, I go into canine-alert mode, and if I hear one bark or if one runs straight at me, I'm dead as far as I'm concerned.))
[] fish
[] spiders
[] flowers or other plants

Total so far: 2

[] being touched
[x] deep water ((I can't swim, and sometimes just getting wet will cause me to panic.))
[] snakes
[] silk
[x] the ocean ((Make me check two for basically the same thing, will you?))
[] failure
[] success
[] thunder/lightning
[] frogs/toads ((I'm very cautious about touching or holding them, because they seem really fragile to me... but I love these little guys!))
[] my boyfriend's/girlfriend's dad ((Hah. This article I read about the topic on Cracked had me worried at first, but not too seriously.))
[] boyfriend's/girlfriend's mom
[] rats
[] jumping from high places ((If it's low enough that I'd expect to land safely, that is...))
[] snow

Total so far: 4

[] rain
[] wind
[] crossing hanging bridges ((Not an inherent fear, I don't think, I'd just be properly cautious if it seemed like an unsafe bridge.))
[] death ((I try to accept it, although I think if I faced the possibility of dying anytime soon, I couldn't handle it.))
[] heaven ((Although, I don't accept the idealistic envisioning of heaven that most people cling to, but not to the point of fear.))
[] being robbed
[x] falling ((It's extremely painful, man.))
[] clowns
[] dolls
[] large crowds of people
[] men
[] women
[] having great responsibilities

[] tornadoes

Total so far: 5

[] hurricanes
[] incurable diseases
[] sharks
[] Friday the 13th
[] ghosts
[] poverty
[] Halloween
[] school
[] trains
[] odd numbers
[] even numbers ((Where the hell are imaginary numbers?))
[] being alone
[] becoming blind
[] becoming deaf
[] growing up ((Formerly, I was afraid of this, but I think now I just want to move on in a lot of ways.))

Total so far: 5

[] creepy noises in the night
[] bee stings
[] not accomplishing my dreams/goals ((Sometimes I feel as though I may not, but it's not really with dread))
[] needles
[] blood
[] dinosaurs
[] the welcome mat
[x] high speed ((It's been known to make me laugh maniacally, because I can't just sit and be calm.))
[] throwing up
[] falling in love
[] super secrets

Final Total: 6

... if you wish to post this in your journal, it's been requested that you title it "I'm afraid of _ out of 72 common fears..."

Hmmmm, I wouldn't say I'm fearless. I think of fears as things that freak you out to even think about, which a lot of these are not... but you bet I'd be scared if I actually CAUGHT an incurable disease! I just don't think "Oh man, there's diseases out there that will kill you and there's not even a cure for them... oh no... OH MY GOOOOOD!!"

If you get more than 30, I strongly recommend some counseling ()
If you get more than 20, you're paranoid. ()
If you get 10-20, you are normal. ( )
If you get 10 or less, you're fearless. (x)
People who don't have any are liars

Hey Roughsketch, long time no see XD Wanted to see how everything's been, and I wanted to ask how much commission prices were. :)

Hey! Everything's been fine, although I don't really go on deviantART anymore (only reason I'm here now was on a whim, that's why it's been nearly two weeks already since you commented... heh).
And, sorry, but I'm not doing commissions right now. :( I've kinda lost interest in digital art lately and I've just been writing and drawing on paper. I am flattered to see you using the one I drew last year again, though. :)

EGAD, he lives!! O_O  ( And its fine, I have skype and tumblr too XDD )

And really? Thats too bad, you make such epic art. ^^ But its fine, its good to try new things after so long. I myself and doing poems and riddles nowadays XD Any chance you ever get back to doing commissions or requests again, can you let me know? I was interested in an Autumn ID or seeing him dressed as Frank Gorshin's Riddler XD Anyway, I'm just happy to hear from you again after so long, glad everything is fine. :) 

Also, yep! Thought Nightmare Joilant would be fitting for Halloween coming up. Because Nightmare Night XD

Yeah, I'll definitely go back sooner or later. I'm mostly just frustrated with my tablet, no longer have a scanner, and also I actually moved a few months ago and there is simply no comfortable setup for a drawing area (no room for a desk or anything in my room) which can be a huge burden for me. But it's fine, at least a sketchbook doesn't require its own special space. :P
