Touch Tone Telephone – Mapleshade Animatic

I think it’s time for you to know the awful truth. The truth about me, and the truth about you, ’cause you’re a brand new species – big cat, oh oh Space Nazis Robert Stack, oh oh God damn it, gonna snap Leonard Nimoy Call me back (Call me back!) I try to call you every day I’m rehearsing what to say when the truth comes out (Of my very own mouth!) I’ve been working on a unified theory If I make it through tonight, everybody’s gotta hear me out! ‘Cause I’m the right one On my touch-tone, touch-tone telephone I’m the only one On your AM, AM radio Oh I’m crying now, authentic tears. They flow out of me when I think about you… ‘Cause you’re the only person in the world that understands! ‘Cause you’re the only person in the world who’d understand the meaning of this Oh my God! I try and I try and I try to make you listen to me! I try to call you every day, I’m rehearsing what to say when the truth comes out! (Of my very own mouth!) I’ve been working on a unified theory If I make it through tonight, everybody’s gotta hear me out! ‘Cause I’m the right one! On my touch-tone, touch-tone telephone! I’m the only one! On your AM, AM radio… Don’t hang up yet. I’m not done! I’m an expert I’m the one! The one who was right all along, better to be laughed at than wrong! I’m an expert, in my field. UFOlogy Yes, it’s all real Ancient aliens, it’s all true! I’m an expert – JUST LIKE YOU! And like you I’m a genius, before my time! Disbelieving, that’s the real crime! Pretty soon they’ll discover me! In the Super-Sargasso Sea! I try to call you every day! What can I say – when the truth comes out? (of my very own mouth) I’ve been working on a unified theory, If I make it through tonight, everybody’s gotta hear me out! ‘Cause I’m the right one! On my touch-tone telephone! On my touch-tone, touch-tone telephone! I’m the only one on your AM radio! On your AM, AM radio!

    I barely know anything about the drama and I just noticed that things seem to be pretty tense. I don't plan on getting to the bottom of this mainly because I'm in no way involved, but I do plan to stick around for the content you make, warriors or not. It's solely up to you what kind of content you want to make and people shouldn't be judging it based on what they think about you or what went down in the community. This is a really well-made animatic and I absolutely love it! I see Mapleshade stuff everywhere and sometimes I get a bit tired of it, but this is such a unique story. Great work!

  2. Skëlly _Sketches Posted on February 12, 2020 at 11:33 pm

    I admire this so much!!! I really love this song and maple shade herself! Plus I understand with you and the whole warrior cats thing but I still hope you keep up your creativity and joy of animation!

  5. WillowBreeze2359 Posted on February 12, 2020 at 11:43 pm

    Absolutely amazing! I love the concept of the Judge, and the idea that Mapleshade created the Dark Forest is so cool! Though that begs the question – where did “unworthy” cats go before its creation?

  6. ogabuga Posted on February 12, 2020 at 11:55 pm

    please dont listen to what others have to say, youre in charge of what u post. if they get upset, its on them. if warriors content is what you love to make, people shouldnt dictate it. although i dont agree with your actions, i also feel that u shouldnt feel scared to post what makes you happy.

  7. The SpiceDice Posted on February 12, 2020 at 11:56 pm

    I really hope you go back to making warriors videos. I loved them!! It made me so happy to see you uploaded this. What's in the past is in the past and the warriors fandom is huge, you'll surely be able to go your separate ways. great video ^^

  8. SavvySketches Posted on February 13, 2020 at 12:02 am

    Nate, make whatever you want!
    It’s your content and if your ready to come back, come back Nate. I’m going to be here to support you along the way, as I’m a firm believer in multiple chances and, I love your content.

  9. Destiny Dynamite Posted on February 13, 2020 at 12:29 am

    this is cool

  10. Spark Dog Posted on February 13, 2020 at 12:31 am

    I feel that you should be allowed to post the things that you whant on YouTube, hopefully one day people will see and will let you make what you wish. Beautiful artwork btw, it fits Mapleshade so well!!

  11. Artistic Posted on February 13, 2020 at 12:38 am

    This is hella sweeeettt!!! I hope they’ll be future maps of this!

  12. Skull Feathers Posted on February 13, 2020 at 12:39 am

    I don’t know literally anything about this drama, I kinda want to know but at the same time I don’t?

  13. ☆ The Griffin Arts ☆ Posted on February 13, 2020 at 12:43 am

    I think it was very brave of you to post this. I've never been a fan of cancel culture and I'm still not. It can be useful in some cases but in others it's just unnecessary and a bit childish if you ask me. What you did was wrong, sure, but there's a time and a place for blame, and a time and a place for forgiveness.
    I think the best you can do is take baby steps, work your way out, test the waters. You owned up to your faults and that's very good on you, now I feel like it's time for a second chance, just don't mess it up, Draik, just lay low a while and let things settle.
    That being said, I missed your warriors content and I'm happy to see it back. Your work is always so experimental and it's a very nice breath of fresh air. Good luck, and I hope to see more of you and your content

  14. Pinestorm 2436 Posted on February 13, 2020 at 12:46 am

    I cant stop you from enjoying a popular book series or making content of that book series. So why should I or anyone else complain? You still have 77k subs who enjoy whatever you put out why should haters matter? They don't.

    Post what you want Nate. No one can stop you. Just work on creating a better you, its something we all need to do.

  15. Huggabug the fanatic Posted on February 13, 2020 at 12:53 am

    To be honest, I don't really like Mapleshade. Like, I get it, you want vengence for your dead children. That's fine, I'd want some too, but murdering innocent cats (besides Appledusk) that were sort of related to your exile? Nah man, Frecklewish didn't deserve that, neither did Ravenwing. Plus, did she know it was flood season? If not, okay. But if so, what the heck was she thinking? 3 kits born like 3 months ago crossing a possibly floodable river in the middle of the night? I guess I just find it difficult to understand why she's so popular, and how people can just say her actions were justified. I like Nate's animatic, and no hate to them, but Im just confused on how people can label Mapleshade's clearly wrong actions as justified.

    Side Note: her exile was completely justified in my opinion. Of course Oakstar and the clan would be upset, you had children with the man who murdered your son and lied about how he was the father of your sin children?

    So yeah, Mapleshade is a poopy head.

  16. Milky Snapple Posted on February 13, 2020 at 12:55 am

    I love this, i miss your content so much

  17. Perilarts Posted on February 13, 2020 at 12:57 am

    Can you just, like, fuck off? Stay out of the warriors community?

  18. Cotton Fluff Posted on February 13, 2020 at 1:02 am

    I love the bit where the dark forest spreads out of Mapleshade. Peak animatic right there. Also please don’t reply to my comment screaming about Nate shouldn’t be in the fandom. I’m complimenting the animatic not condoning Nate’s actions against minors.

  19. Lonely Ferret Posted on February 13, 2020 at 1:03 am

    Happy to see some warriors NGL

  20. Hatchet Posted on February 13, 2020 at 1:08 am

    no one has the authority to kick someone out of a fandom. if draikinator wants to continue creating warrior cat videos legally they can and nobody can stop them. you're allowed to hate and dislike draikinator for it, that's your choice too; however again if draikinator wants to make warrior content they can and will. if you don't want to see draikinator's videos simply don't look for them or block the channel using browser extensions.

  21. Socially Undead Posted on February 13, 2020 at 1:08 am

    Draikinator made a mistake. They didn't know the person was that young. Just because they made a mistake does not mean they should be banned from posting all content from a certain fandom. You guys aren't the fandom police.

  22. Fireflies TM Posted on February 13, 2020 at 1:11 am

    ph shit theres drama in the comments run drak ruun

  23. OakWood Studios Posted on February 13, 2020 at 1:15 am

    Hello Draikinator! I have a quick question. I was wondering if you would like to enter my warriors M.A.P

  26. Shortail Draws Posted on February 13, 2020 at 1:24 am

    I'm glad you pushed away all of that hate that came from other people and moved on, I believe people make tons of mistakes and people should respect that fact, I think if those disrespectful people had went through what you went through I think they will understand you, you've inspired lots of people including me and I want you to continue inspiring people with your content,

    (Thanks for reading (◍•ᴗ•◍)

  28. Patrick May Posted on February 13, 2020 at 1:48 am

    noah fence, but mapleshade was a grown woman/cat and certainly shouldn’t have been relying on starclan to tell her what’s right and what’s wrong. i don’t believe that she was naïve; she blamed everyone but herself for her mistakes. starclan didn’t fail mapleshade, mapleshade failed her kits by forcing them to cross a flooded river.

    honestly don't care if you people disagree with you posting things you enjoy, i love seeing your AU's and animations for warriors.

  32. Girl ErRoR! Sans Posted on February 13, 2020 at 2:00 am

    I'm very happy to see this! Despite what everyone says no one can force you out of the fandom and stop you from doing what you want. I'm aware you said you would not return and that is your choice, if you want to come back I'm not gonna stop you and if you don't want to return that's fine as well! You are the creator of the content and can do what you want with your creations. I know what you did was bad and that we all make terrible mistakes, I know I have made them. All of your supporters know you would never risk the same mistake again and that you mean no harm to anyone in the community or in general. I wish you luck with your future however you desire to make it and am proud to say I'm willing to welcome you to anything with a clear mind and an open heart. There are always people who are willing to fight for someone's rights and their personal well being, never forget that. What happened will stay with you forever but we all have to move on, not just you, anyone in your situation would have the urge to do what you did but I'm not saying that makes it ok. We all have to forgive to continue with our lives and to help others up into good situations, not bring them down. I hope you see this comment drake and that it really helps you as well as the hundreds of others supporting you. Good luck and good day!!! 😁

  33. GhostyPaws Posted on February 13, 2020 at 2:01 am

  34. WolfQueen Posted on February 13, 2020 at 2:03 am

    Sometimes you have look at something separate from the creator due to controversy. However I highly enjoy this!!

  35. SkylaHeartbeat Posted on February 13, 2020 at 2:06 am

    Okay I've been seeing a lot of comments giving Nate hate and honestly, its not necessary. You can't keep someone from enjoying a fandom. You can't keep people from creating content inspired by the fandom. That's completely ridiculous. Don't like the person? Don't watch their content. That simple. You are actively dragging up things that happened 7 months ago. Something that Nate apologised for and truly regrets. They've moved on and hopefully became a better person from the experience. Its time to do the same. Nate has been inactive in the community for 7 months. They only created content today. Scrolling through the comments its clear they are not interacting with people in the fandom. They deleted their social media other than YouTube, and haven't talked to individuals in the fandom. They are still allowed to create art about whatever they want. They are staying out of the fandom by not interacting with people within it. So get off your high horse and just let them make art

  36. Funny Penguin Posted on February 13, 2020 at 2:27 am

    Oh, well I’m happy to see more warriors art from you Nate! Personally I think you might still want to stay far away from the fandom, as this comment section shows you are still very unwelcome by other fans. But I don’t really blame them, just stay humble and know people have the right to criticize you no matter how many times you say sorry. But I’m here for you for the most part.

  37. StrangeHeaven Posted on February 13, 2020 at 2:35 am

    i don't know what warriors or whatever is but i heard you do nastyass shit so fuck off from the lemon demon community

  38. Brom Johnson Posted on February 13, 2020 at 2:37 am

    You're an absolute coward. Even if you did change, your apology video would serve as a memento of the person you're trying to become. You may think that you can just delete it and act like none of this ever happened, but people don't forget so easily. I won't forget. You make me sick. Delete your YouTube channel.

  39. Joki Notion Posted on February 13, 2020 at 2:44 am

    To everyone saying what they did was horrid and how they’re a horrible person

    They showed PROOF

    They did not show the screenshots in order to harm the opposing party in question

    This happened almost a year ago and people need to let it go

    I doubt the imagery that was shown in the proof scarred the “victim” so bad that they are now in a horrible mental state

    I also doubt that any of you actually care, you just want to stir up drama from last year so you can get off to your arguments in the comment section of a warrior cat video

    Honestly, stop white Knighting so you can look like some sort of lawyer or hero, because nothing is going to come from it

    Leave Draik alone, they haven’t been preying upon children or trying to hurt people

    they’re trying to make content that both they, and their audience, enjoy

    So either watch the video, or leave

    So what if they come back to posting warriors content or not? It honestly doesn’t matter what they post as long as it follows the guidelines

    Stop acting hurt over what they’re doing and continue on with your own lives

    if you don’t like it, well boo-hoo go cry to your mom about it, because we honestly don’t care about your opinion on what they should and shouldn’t be posting

    Yes, they made a mistake.
    Yes, people make mistakes.
    Yes, they are sorry.
    No, they can’t change a sing thing that happened.
    But, they apologized and even left a community that meant a lot to them just to please some of you

  40. Caitlin Wilson Posted on February 13, 2020 at 3:18 am

    What more can they really do? Screaming won't change the past. You can't change what's happened, you can be better though, and change the FUTURE. That's all we can do, so hating them won't do a thing IN THE SLIGHTEST

  41. Pikaphin333 Posted on February 13, 2020 at 3:29 am

    This looks amazing, excellent art work!

  42. Killer star Warrior Posted on February 13, 2020 at 3:44 am

    Mapleshade talks to some important star clan cats about how she’s been wronged they offer to put her in star clan she says no she would like to be reincarnated the star clan cats agree she lives a good life having a few litter of kits some of which are the reincarnation of her kits she dies an elder but once in star clan she remembers her previous life and opens a door between the dark forest and star clan killing all those who wronged them once they get revenge they go back to the dark forest satisfied and ready for their punishment

  43. Randomness In a youtube channel Posted on February 13, 2020 at 3:44 am

    when you honestly forgive everyone for their mistakes even if they are really bad

    Nice Animatic

  44. Taztaz Posted on February 13, 2020 at 3:48 am

    You guys are just acting like hypocrite. Nate, you are such a good artist and i know you have so much potential, i can assure that from all the warrior cats maps yours where surely the best ones. No one has the right to kick you from a fandom, nor harass or censore you. Thats cyberbullying and it is too illegal!

    Lets stop acting like heroes when we cant calm down and ask for the apology video published or just letting the actual people involved on this to fix it. Because, no, Nate didnt attack the fandom. This is a problem with a few people that enjoys the same thing, and it doesnt mean that you have the right to talk in the name of all Warrior Cats´ fans. That´s manipulative too, toxic, and it scares future generations to being involved with the fandom.

    I can assure that you all are just justifying doing a horrible thing for another one. It isnt healthy and it doesnt help anyone. It seems like what you are wanting is for Nate to fall in a such terrible situation, and that wont end well. When that moment comes, i hope you feel happy and take the responsability for what happens next. Thank you.

  45. SunnyStrikers :3 Posted on February 13, 2020 at 4:18 am

    Edit: I keep seeing comments about Drak doing something. What did this person do?

    Then this possibly leads to the "Apology Song" map? Cause I saw a tiny apple on one of the spirit cats shoulders, which I assume that's Appledusk (maybe?) and in the "Apology Song" map he has a apple mark on his shoulder. Idk I thought that maybe these two were kind of connected to one another, maybe making it a trilogy with the "Heartless" map too.

    I don’t care about any past drama that has occurred I really appreciate you uploading and your animation skills I look forward to you works your a good person stay like that and don’t give up also to all of you people going onto this video with hate I advise that you should just carry out your day normally it’s disturbing to see so many hating because of the past what’s done is done there’s no going back but there still is a future it may be unknown but you can still change that future whether you want to or not.

  50. Alycat42 {•_•} Posted on February 13, 2020 at 5:14 am

    I'm happy you did this I was really sad when you stopped posting warriors content, as I loved your AU's and map ideas. I understand what happened, you made a mistake and dispite what some people think everyone makes mistakes. The difference is wiether or not your willing to admit you made them. Which you did. I don't think you should have to stop doing what you love because you made one.
    And I also believe you do not disurve all the hate you get for it (and before any of you in the comments comment on this I am not some little kid who doesn't know what happened or what I'm talking about, I just differ in opinions then you. Deal With It.)

    I LOVE THIS NEW VIDEO AND ANIMATION sure you did some pretty bad stuff and I was pretty mad at you for a long time but you apolgized and you had a reason for not directly apoligizing even though you should not unlist the apolgy video prob should put it back up but Ill admit it I MISSED YOUR ANIMATION and im glad your back just post that video back up and lets all just try to forgive

  53. shadow wing Posted on February 13, 2020 at 6:11 am

    :0 its so pretty! ❤️❤️❤️ I love it. but its sad that your not gonna make warriors stuff anymore.

  54. Francis Tessendorf Posted on February 13, 2020 at 7:09 am

  55. Jaybear Posted on February 13, 2020 at 7:18 am

    Mapleshade was not justified at all…I hate when the fandom coddle her. Appledusk wasn't even guilty … Yeah he said one mean thing after witnessing his wife's incompetence kill his kids and while knowing his whole life, family, friends and home were on the line :/ Mapleshade is just an entitled egocentric bastard lmfao

  56. spookyluck Posted on February 13, 2020 at 7:23 am

    People are so dramatic. Please, if you have a problem with Draikinator, keep your conflicts with them private. This has nothing to do in a public place like YouTube. The majority of the fandom has nothing to do with this.

    No matter what, I don't think you should suppress someone's ability to post what they want on their youtube channel (as long as it's in guidelines of course). Y'all don't own these books. Block this creator to not see their content or something.

  64. Sushi Draws! Posted on February 13, 2020 at 10:42 am

    I know I'll get fucking bashed for this but who cares. Leave the poor guy alone. They already apologized and attempted to cut ties with everyone. You're basically telling this guy to stop liking what they like at this point. You're all also being fucking sheep. This is what I hate about cancel culture. You're all fucking sheep. You're fighting for the people who are barely raising a finger and jumping on the bandwagon just to get your precious "god" to notice you. This guy literally has the world against them right now and your only solution is to make it worse? To try to bully this guy out of life itself? ALL of you can be held legally responsible for partaking in harassment if they do end up killing themselves, and you know who will be in the most trouble? Your so called "gods" who spoke out against this guy in the first place. You're not doing anybody justice, you're only incriminating yourselves. You're diving into a legal issue that won't be solved by telling someone to stop and acting like a herd of fucking sheep. Leave it alone and go take a rest, stop jumping at the mention of drama you fucking drama whores. They didn't know it was a minor and you don't have to be part of this god damn slander. Let it rest.

    dammmn are people gonna like, leave you tf alone or what. you aint hurtin anybody by makin content abt fictional cat cults man… also this is super cool! i rly love the idea that mapl created the dark forest. good to see wc content from you again

  66. ShutmonMayhem Neo Posted on February 13, 2020 at 11:32 am

    Those complaining.

    If you don't wanna deal with it, don't watch it. Unsubscribe if you need to.

    Don't keep complaining, as it's not gonna fix it. You act like saying Drake is a jerk will make them all like "Oh, you're right, lemme stop posting stuff on here and not wanna share my art with the world."

    You do you and they'll do themselves. Okay?

  67. Loulou Morgz Posted on February 13, 2020 at 11:44 am

    Love this animatic! I love all animatics you do and I just love the idea of MapleShade passing judgement on StarClan, instead of allowing them to do it to her! Loved it!

  68. Ainsley Nobara Posted on February 13, 2020 at 11:56 am

    Maple shade is getting her apologize yay bravo draikinater 👏

  69. Kiara Coronado Posted on February 13, 2020 at 12:06 pm

    Honestly I know about everything Nate did. But I’m dead serious when I say that just stay away from there channel or them at all if you don’t like them. Why even bother? People keep commenting “I thought you were going to stay away” like dude just read the description and it will tell you. And I honestly don’t care what Nate post. I don’t agree with there actions but being kicked out an entire fandom when actual horrible people are still allowed to be in it. It’s kinda hypocritical. Like just don’t watch Nate if you got such a huge problem. Don’t interact with them or there content. They aren’t hurting anyone.
    Full honestly the entire “drama” is over and done. Nate already apologized. At least they did that. Yes they unlisted the video. I mean I would to if I was getting all those horrible comments. You judge Nate for being toxic when people in there comments are doing no better. On the apology video the comments were mean and uncalled for. Some of them were good and people actually trying to help but some were just nasty. If I was getting those comments I’d delete it to. Like look at it from Nates point if view. You getting harassed after saying you were sorry and that you’ll leave the fandom only for those very people in that fandom your trying to get away from to come and tell you to kill your self. It’s not okay so if your going to judge Nate also judge those people and don’t like there comment and agree with them. It makes you no better than Nate. I mean they could have been like Lizard Wizard and just left the face of the earth without apologizing. But no they tried to apologize but the harsh reality is that the can probably apologize a million times and there still going to be unhappy people and still people who hate Nate. If you hate them that badly just block there channel that’s a thing now and don’t interact with them. They stated they don’t have social media anymore. There only posting the content on YouTube. I don’t see the big deal. I love warriors but I hate the fandom for being hypocritical . Just get off there channel if you hate them it’s not hard. Ignoring people you hate is easy.

    ❤️❤️ your animatics are always amazing

    Oh ya, and in The Silent Thaw, everyone learned that Bramblestar really is a ghost, Squirrelflight got exiled by the imposter and is now staying with Shadowclan, and Shadowpaw is now Shadowsomething lol.

    I love this! I hope you will make more warriors content, but it's your choice and at your own pace.

    Aw shit here we go again

    Nate is welcome in this fandom. Look at the amount of likes. Admit that the majority of the fandom has nothing to do with the drama and just enjoys watching their videos. I've read comments saying if you forgive them that means you've been brainwashed by their apology video. I'm not manipulated just because I like their content. I haven't forgiven anyone, because I just don't care. I've been pissed by this drama since the beginning because I don't feel concerned and I just want them to continue working on things they want without people being extreme about it. I'm not young and naive whatsoever (i'm 21 ???) I just think this whole story has gone way too far. If you have a problem with draik, just don't watch their videos but don't forbid someone to make art about books you don't even own. I hope people don't act over jealousy, to break down their success.

    yoooo hell yeah i missed this

    Q – What song is this?

    A – "Touch Tone Telephone" by Neil cicierega AKA Lemon Demon

    Q – who is the cat mapleshade is talking to?
    A – my OC, silverpelt, usually just referred to as "the judge." they represent the judgement of starclan in determining if someone goes to starclan or the dark forest. They first appeared in one of my previous MAPs, "Heartless."

    Q – Why are there comments here from before the video was posted??

    A – My videos are posted early for patrons! For just a dollar, you could have watched this video early, too! 😛

    Q – Are you going to run a MAP of this?

    A – Nah

    Q – Can I run a MAP of this?

    A – sure, i guess leave a comment and ask. Must have completed one map in the past. thank

    Q – Can I use part of this animatic to practice animation/redraw?

    A – Sure, but please put a link in the description back to it. thanks!

    Oh god draik I love this 💖
    You made such great work!!

    Starclan: Don't you hate it when a ghost cat you fucked over creates an entirely new afterlife out of justified rage and spite?

  81. GenoGlitch Posted on February 27, 2020 at 9:58 pm

    Love it so much. I am a bit sad you don't make Warriors content anymore since I love the ideas you always came up with, but it is understandable when you choose to stop. I hope you still make amazing stuff in the future!

  82. Hella Gay Angel Posted on February 27, 2020 at 10:21 pm

    I love the concept of the judge, and I hope that I can see more similar to this! I love your art style and how expressive you make the characters, it's all amazing^^

    Oh wow I thought you were blocking the comment section because of backlash for leaving the fandom but i guess not. Good video.

  85. Hoopdog The King Posted on February 28, 2020 at 3:29 am

    In Mapleshade's defense, if I didn't know why Leonard Nimoy wasn't answering my calls I'd go insane too.

  86. Purple Exe Posted on February 28, 2020 at 4:58 am

    You know I actually really like the idea of cats rejecting Starclan rather than being rejected b starclan, because plenty of cats have had such a disservice done to them and I hate how cats who were treated so badly like mapleshade are kicked into the dark forest after the world turned them into the monsters they became.

    Also thunderclan was literally like "FUCK YOU, MAPLESHADE, we can't have riveclan cats in our clan!" and then they get a riveclan medicine cat because I guess they can ignore their own morals when it's convenient to them

  87. Lazette Posted on February 28, 2020 at 7:49 am

    This is amazing. I love everything about it ;;
    I'm still learning how to draw cats, so I'll use some frame of this masterpiece for pratice if you don't mind (I already have an art style for cats, but my skills in anatomy are kinda low ;;) of curse I'll credit you, you deserve it
    I'm sorry for everything that happened in the past in the Warrior Cats community, be strong.
    I love your works

  88. Cinnamon Petunia Posted on February 28, 2020 at 8:29 pm

    I love this so much omfg

  89. TubbyWubbyCat Posted on February 28, 2020 at 9:35 pm

    I love how the faces are so expressive :0 and Mapleshade creating the Dark Forest is such a cool idea :3 (though I'm pretty sure One Eye did)

    Re-watched this after watching the Hollow TLK2 pmv…. either Zira and Maple have a lot in common of there aren't enough well-written female villains!

  91. Ground Zero Posted on February 29, 2020 at 12:15 am

    I really love the idea of Mapleshade having created the Dark Forest

  92. Z Posted on February 29, 2020 at 2:50 am

    I sorry probably won't be posted but I'm adding line art and color ☹️

  93. ClownHound Posted on February 29, 2020 at 5:39 am

    I read the FAQ but i just wanted to be sure! I was so inspired by this I wanted to do a reanimate but I wanted to make sure I would do it right! It's okay as long as I link this video and give u credit in the description right? This is so amazing!!

  94. Ironyche Posted on February 29, 2020 at 10:14 am

    When you want to host this as a MAP but your MAP is not even done: Oh I'm crying out authentic tears :"">

  95. the anime fan Posted on February 29, 2020 at 3:21 pm

    I just got chills- woah-

  96. dove the stupidhead Posted on February 29, 2020 at 4:49 pm

  99. Cronchy Corgocats Posted on March 1, 2020 at 9:46 am

    3:33 is anyone else obsessed with this scene where she’s got her head back like that, it’s just too freaking cool.
