Shiny Lyni Warning: The following may be too serious for some of you guys to handle. If you do not wish to read about my personal feelings, skip past it all to the cut.

#flashchallenge
because the greatest challenge I have ever faced was growing up. I am, indeed, an adult now, and have been for more than a year now. For a while, I've been struggling to figure out what I wanted to do with my life. Do I go to college? What major should I be in? Should I continue on to graduate studies? Stuff like that haunted me for much of my senior year of high school, and, indeed, many of these questions still swarm around in my head though I am now a second year in college.

Many of you guys will remember me as Shiny Eevee on the forums, a name I've used for almost seven years now. A few of you will fondly (or not-so-fondly) regard my early days here as the resident 12-year-old n00b who had absolutely no idea what a forum or chatroom or whatever was. I've grown and changed since then, and I am no longer the little Eevee I started out as. However, just because I'm bigger, doesn't mean I know more about myself. I continue to struggle being an adult, along with the choices I have to make. I wonder if I should go down the path my parents laid out for me, the one they deem will "bring me happiness". Or should I follow the path I want, the so-called "riskier" one? What kind of a person do I want to evolve into? Like an Eevee, there are so many possibilities I have in front of me, but which choice is the right one for me?

For now, I've chosen a path and will walk down it. It might not be the best path, but it's the one I chose and I'll stick with it until the end.

Okay serious time over XD But yeah, that's what I had going on my head while making these sprites~ Speaking of which, these are 100% scratched, and I'm fairly proud of the Sylveon (not too sure about the Eevee, though). Also, the Eevee is translucent, but you probably can't tell because I'm a derpface ^^;

I also have a non-shiny version I can upload if anyone is interested, along with separate versions of the Eevee and Sylveon. Just comment below if you want to see it and I'll post them here if you want to see them~

    Your sprites are beautiful and so is the story that goes with them. The time for pressing the B button and throwing Everstones at you is indeed over. You have chosen well young Kyubeon! Now Moonblast your way to victory! ♥

    Nice read, Shiny. Thanks for sharing. ♥

    And I'd definitely like to see your non-shiny Eevee. Do upload it too. :3
