Going with the Flow: DeviantArtist Questionnaire

Journal Entry: Fri Aug 7, 2015, 5:48 PM

  1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?
    I joined July 17, 2008, but I wasn't very active until maybe about half a year after that.

  2. What does your username mean?
    When I joined I was ~reader2951, because I mostly intended to just read Trauma Center fanfiction on DA. After the ability to change my username came up, I immediately changed my name to *Parsat, a common internet handle of mine. It's a portmanteau word between "parody" and "satire", back when I contributed to humor websites. I pronounce it as you would pronounce the words "par" and "sat" individually.

  3. Describe yourself in three words.
    Poems are forms.

  4. Are you left or right handed?

  5. What was your first deviation?
    Trauma Center Family Tree Man, I was such a fanboy...

  6. What is your favourite type of art to create?
    I still love me a good sonnet.

  7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
    I'd love to be a musical master!

  8. What was your first favourite?
    emote jackpot by MenInASuitcase

  9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
    Mostly fanart, it looks like.

  10. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
    timeraider, a poet of prodigious skill. I have nothing but the greatest respect and admiration for him.

  11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
    rlkirkland, unfortunately, recently retired from DA but I would have loved to have met him personally. Facebook will have to do. Otherwise, I think I would love to meet LaBruyere!

  12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
    LaBruyere was instrumental in the success of my second mission to Taiwan with her spiritual encouragement and support. She also helped me find a promise verse to claim for that time, which was awesome.

  13. What are your preferred tools to create art?
    MS Notepad and Evernote.

  14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
    My desk at midnight.

  15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
    I had tons of fun running and participating in events at Crowns-of-Sonnets and ProjectDFC. Getting my first DD on The Ballad of Mulan was quite an experience too!

Parsat's Profile Picture
Artist | Literature
United States
I'm a disciple of Christ, a USC Trojan, a sonneteer, an administrator on Wikipedia, a Chinese-American, a pianist/violist, a biologist, a trivia buff, an ISTJ, and a scooter enthusiast.

"My heart is stirred by a noble theme as I recite my verses for the king; my tongue is the pen of a skillful writer." --Psalm 45:1

I mostly write fixed form/structural poetry, as well as translations of Chinese poetry. The villanelle is the king of poems, and the sonnet his queen.

3 deviants said A few, but I should be able to finish them
2 deviants said Just one, the one I'm working on right now
1 deviant said None, I always finish what I start

I am a Wikipedian under a different name. I haven't very active as of late, but I did serve as an admin there for some time. Glad to meet a fellow Wikipedian!

Hope you have a wonderful birthday. :) You're a significant influence for me, because without you introducing me to Sonnets, I would never have wound up even taking the form seriously... now, I'm unable to let them go because I have become almost as comfortable with the form as Villanelles, Trijan Refrains, and Rubai. And on that note, I believe that your sonnets have also inspired me significantly because they've shown how much you're at home with the form, and are exploring yourself from your reading and from understanding yourself.

Especially yourself. You're quite an enigma if I do point that out myself: Its so fascinating to see how you've become the writer you are now, and how you keep on becoming the writer to be. Especially where your sonnets' themes are concerned, and your perspectives from the works you read (be it the Bible, or be it Shakespeare).

Which also reminds me of two other things: The Bible and Shakespeare. I can say, with a significant amount of pride, that I have had the privilege of exercising diligence when reading both. Especially Shakespeare, whose plays do inspire me often (particular favourites of mine are "The Merchant of Venice" and "Julius Ceasar"). Nevertheless, I give his sonnets credit only because of their form - it is truly the easiest and the least effort requiring sonnet type I have had the pleasure of writing in, and believe me, I have written a significant share of them (about 50 by my reckoning, although it is a paltry number which pales compared to the number which you have written.)

Nevertheless, thank you for constantly giving me food for thought, be it your sonnets, or be it your journal entries, or even when we have our conversations on an everfluctuating list of themes. Its deeply satisfying. :) Stay strong, mate. And keep fighting the good fight! :dummy:

Note: If I have been a dumb ass towards you at any point in time, I do apologize for that. I tend to be that way with people from time to time, and its a pain in the ass to deal with - I know, I have to deal with such behavior and I am fully aware of how annoying it can be. Hope it didn't deter our interactions on poetic subjects though :) Cheers.
