Hello guys, Naomi here and I wanted to thank those who still reads my creator's story even though it has been a few years since he hasn't published a new chapter but do not worry since right as I'm sending you this message. He's working on chapter 8 and believe it or not he's having a rough time since he really hasn't written anything for a long while and it might take a few more days to finish the chapter. But in the meantime He and I decided to do a Q&A for all the fans of the story and any newcomer that enjoys it. Just leave the questions in the comment section below and I will answer them. I will answer any and all questions as long as it's nothing sexual and nothing rude.

      Also in other news for Mowgli's Mother is that it will be different than the original or disney version of the Jungle Book which is rather obvious with the first chapter and all but there will be some bits and pieces from both versions of the story while original ideas from my creator will be added to the story, and last but the least a new chapter of Mowgli's mother will be released by the end of each month and who knows we might get two chapters every now and again as long as my creator can pull off the two chapters. I wish I can tell you guys more about what's going to happen in the story but I can't since it would spoil the story there will be some dramatic moments while also some funny ones and a little action here and there won't hurt. And another thing is that the story is also on Fanfiction.com but it's a little behind with the chapters as it has only the first 5 of them.

Alpha: I told you I'm going to upload them.

Naomi: Right just like you said about rebooting your other fanfics and yet they remained the same.

Alpha: Well I do have other projects after all plus a personal life that I have to attend to.

Naomi: Oh come on I have needs to you know, not to mention I'm the star of the story.

Alpha: Correction you and Mowgli are both the main stars.

Naomi: I know that, but what I mean is that I'm the only OC that you used for the story.

Alpha: Oh don't worry about that little detail. Since there are other OCs that will make an appearance

Naomi: Like who?

Alpha: Sorry that's a secret for now.

Naomi: Awww..no fair.

Alpha: Well life is never fair, and now to keep working on the chapter. Naomi you know the drill.

Naomi: Alright well guys that's it for now just remember leave your questions and comments below and I will answer them. Until then love you guys and thanks so much for the patience and actually getting my creator to actually write the darn story. See ya

Also very last thing here's the first chapter of the story if you haven't read it yet. alphaespadaxd1.deviantart.com/…
So yeah it finally happen ladies and gentlemen. I Julio E. Vazquez aka AlphaEspadaXD1 have quit Yugioh. Why you might ask...simple really. 1.) It's mechanics are unbalanced, 2.) They keep releasing broken and BS cards that are a b*tch to get around. 3.) The recent banned list which should have fixed these problems are a f*cking joke after another and instead bring back cheap and broken cards to make more OTK moves.

But in general the main problem of Yugioh is both the banned list and the overpowered cards that Konami the company behind Yugioh keep making. Currently in the banned list both Snatch Steal and Raigeki are at 1, Why? I really have no f*cking idea why in the world would they bring those two back. For those of you who don't know Raigeki can wipe your opponent's side of their monsters with no cost or conditions whatsoever while Snatch Steal is practically taking your opponent's monster and does whatever the hell he/she wants with it. Tell that that's not overpowered and cheap.

And it's not just those two cards but the decks that can use them which by the way is any and all of them can use them. Especially the tier one decks can are already powerful on their own. Right now the top decks are Shaddolls, Stellarknights, Burning Abyss, Nekroz, and Qliphorts. Some might disagree with the last one but let's face it those f*ckers are HARD to beat especially with them using cards like Skill Drain and Vanity's Emptiness which just by those two cards alone can shut down almost any deck with no problem. Sure we have three Mystical Space Typhoon but at this point we need more than just three spells that can only take out another spell/trap. There are other clones of the card but MST is basically the best of the bunch and it's best it's just not enough anymore.

My other problem are the players who and I'm not sh*ting here play the EXACT SAME deck every f*cking time. Especially the tier one decks that I mentioned and one of my most hated decks in the game the cheap as f*ck lightsworns that will always partner up with the goddamn dragon rulers. One might think that reduce to one those f*ckers would finally be put to rest but NOPE even at 1 those bastard dragons are still a pain and their boss monster Judgement Dragon is a true OP as sh*t with the ability to destroy everything one the field and it's not once per turn oh no he can do it multiple times with just a small pay of 1000 life points and just to add salt to the wound after nuking the field with JD, the player can summon all of their strongest monsters and just go for game with the other player having nothing to defend themselves. Unless they would have either Battle Fader or Swift Scarecrow but really not every deck can fit those two. Plus any other new and future decks that would top.

And one of the other things that really drives me up the wall is the mentality of the players being that if it's not topping in regionals or world tournaments it's not broken. Which I say b*llsh*t. That kind of mentality is equivalent of being downright ignorant and just being stupid thinking. Just because say Lightsworns or Fire Kings for example aren't topping in the big leagues doesn't mean they're not broken. That's one of the reasons why I don't go to such tournaments because I know for a fact that most of the players will have said decks and I know for a fact that my deck wouldn't last the first round no matter how many cards I have under disposal.

The other reason and personally it's one of my favorite because on how much BS it has going for it. Because say you want to build one of the tier one decks in real life. Ok do you have between $250 to $500? No well too bad. Even if you find the cards cheap in the cheapest website that would sell them you will still have to pony up the extra cash for them just to be number one for three months until when the ban list comes around and screws the deck over by taking away what makes them so powerful in the first place and ultimately screwing over the poor sap that wasted a good chunk of their savings which could have been put to better use in other things say for groceries, paying rent and so on and so forth. 

But don't get me wrong I do have my favorite decks like: Blackwings, Cyber Dragons, Blue-Eyes deck, Synchro/XYZ Monarchs, My personal toolbox Synchro/XYZ decks ect. Just to name a few and I would be exceptionally proud when I do beat some of the top tier decks but those kinds of moments are few and far between. I normally play decks that most won't play or just forget about them over time and it brings a smile on my face when I bring those who brag that their the best with said deck down a peg or two. Sadly I don't own most of these decks aside my blackwing deck but even that deck is incomplete compare the one I use in YGOpro. And that's why it's mostly about how much the decks would cost. Even some decks wouldn't cost as much as $20 to $30 but there are some cards that by themselves could cost around to $25 to $50. So yeah Yugioh is not only unbalanced but expensive as well.

And lastly we have the new summoning mechanic called pendulum summoning which just by itself can be a real game changer or a early victory for some of those who are lucky. To give the short version of how pendulum works is having two pendulum monsters with scales between say 2 to 7. You can summon monsters with levels that are between those two scale numbers and just unleash hell on your opponent unless he/she has a way to stop them but you get the picture. That's pretty much another reason why I'm quitting. It feels so unnecessary having this new summoning mechanic when we already have Fusion/Ritual/Synchro and XYZ summoning why have another to complecate the game more than it needs to be? 

Personally if I were to own the whole card game itself and have complete creative control or just complete control of the game in general I would have given a major overhaul like make it more balanced and less batsh*t OP and complicated. Hell I would make it balanced enough so that any deck can have the fighting chance to actually win a world championship....but that's just my wishful thinking at this point.

What about collecting the cards? Yeah if you don't mind the fact that Konami has a habit to repeatedly reprint the same cards over and over which practically devalues them over time.

Bottom line is that I quit Yugioh. I cease to play the card game, I will never buy another pack/tin/boxset. Until unless I see some legitimate changes that would fix and balance the game more like change the effects of some of their cards that make them so OP in the first place. Maybe just maybe I'll consider coming back. But until then. I'm out and I'll be selling my cards since I won't have any use for them. Mostly do to the fact I need a new and better camcorder for my youtube show.

Well guys that's it that's all I have to say. 

Till next time Ja'ne :)

Last night was suppose to be the big night were my sculpture which I spent the last six months working on it while putting my heart and soul into it because for me this was suppose to be my magnum opus, my masterpiece, my best work yet. Me and grandma went to the ceremony and it finally started after 30mins in and everyone was there including my sculpture teacher who's the best by the way, my fellow classmates who I have nothing but love for them and several others in the art community in guayama plus the mayor was there too.

Once the administrator of the art school gave his speech about how our art is the pride of Puerto Rico and Guayama, we were treated with his violin play which sounded nice. But unfortunately after the violin play the people on stage kept on talking about our pride and such but honestly it felt like their dragging the event with filler talk until finally the award ceremony the main event finally arrived.

First off where the beginner division which surprisingly most if not all of them won a prize which is a nice trophy by the way. Then came the advance division which I'm in and I was waiting with a lot of anticipation and glee feeling that my sculpture is a born winner especially with the work and love I put into it. I was sure that this year I'm finally getting an award for all the work I done for my piece, I was sure that I would finally get some recognition from my own home town. But back to the story, they called in several of the advance division and eventually everyone in the class was called to the stage and won except one.....can you guess who?........that's right THIS GUY!!!

After that I had to go to the bathroom because frankly I needed the privacy as I go and locked the door and no I didn't cry. I looked at myself in the mirror and asked "What the hell does it take?" My heart was shattered like someone took a sledgehammer to it and then stomp on it for good measure. Eventually I pulled myself together and for the rest of the night I wore a fake smile and clapped like nothing happen. While to the outside world I was a happy guy but inside I felt upset and having the feeling like I was cheated out of my award. But I did get a diploma...but then everyone did too and personally it felt like a consolation prize not to mention I already have like 3 of them back home.

So with that the award ceremony was over and everyone went down to the exhibition rooms where all of our work are on display. Mine was in the third and last room. I looked at it and to my horror I noticed a long crack at the back of the piece. But thankfully no one else noticed......but I did and it annoyed me to no end. Like someone was so careless enough to let it drop to the ground and leaving it as it is. But after a like 10 to 15 mins me and grandma left early like we're the first ones to leave mostly because she got tired from walking up the stairs to the second floor and I was just mad that my best work not only didn't win but was mishandled and ended up with a long crack during the preparation to the event. Honestly I believe that me and my sculpture SHOULD have won that night. I put a lot of love to my art and it's even of my own design that took me exactly 6 months to make from scratch. And apparently the reason I didn't win was simply because the judges of the event were old fashioned and that my piece is apparently too modern for their taste while the rest of the class did more or less traditional works. To which I say they should get themselves updated because we're in 2014 and NOT in 1989. Most of the guests saw and liked my sculpture and some gave me the usual congratulations, hand shake and picture. So with that the public or the 1% or 2% of them liked my work....and yet the judges saw it and were like "Oh no this is too modern for us, maybe if we ignore it it would go away." Personally the judges can go screw themselves over with a bottle of whisky and then some. After this I'm considering taking other classes in the art school and take a break from sculpting especially after two years of doing it.

And honestly my sculpture which is named "Dragon Mystico" should have won because a) It's original and not some carbon copy of another piece and b) I put everything I had on that piece as long as it was my sculpting teacher's ok with it. It's basically and supposedly be my best work yet.

So anyway what suppose to be a great night ended up being a lousy one. But hey at least some people liked it but that's about it.
