Hey, everyone! I'm Maggie!
I'm a twenty-year-old college junior with a Communication major and an English Literature minor. Art is a hobby of mine, but I hope to be a published author one day. Hopefully in the very near future.
I love lighthouses, cats, boats, books, and being spastic fangirl over many, many different fandoms. Basically if I have fanart, I like it. If I don't, it's because I don't feel compelled enough to draw some or I feel I can't articulate my love for it in the best possible way.
Make sure to look through my scraps for sketches too! Who knows? I might digitize them in the future.
In short, I'm hyper, sunny, a spaz, happy, and awesome.
1. What does your Deviantart name mean and why?
Mahersal was the name of an imaginary cat friend I have when I was little. The story behind it: I took dance when I was little and was trying to say dance “rehearsal,” but it came out “mahersal.” The name since has stuck. I have a stuffed grey cat named Mahersal and my first cat was named Mahersal. And it’s pronounced Ma-her-sl. Not “sal.”
2. What fandom were you obsessed with when you joined and what are you into now?
YU-GI-OH. OH MY LORD. Do you guys remember that? WOW. WOOOOOW. It still holds a place in my heart, but I’m not as hard core as I once was.
Now I’m into Free, Tokyo Ghoul, and Attack on Titan. Who would’ve guessed?
3. How many watchers do you have now?
132. Some things never change.
4. Name 3 of your favorite artists on DA.
Oh man. Probaby burdge , Picolo-kun , and bleedman just to name a few. I have a lot of favorites.
5. Or lack thereof, move along…
6. Do you participate in clubs' contests here on dA?
I haven’t for years because I’m busy, but I’m hoping to enter the Sports AU contest Haruka-x-Rin!
7. What is your most popular submission
The most viewed is still that silly post I made years ago about Mythshipping, capping over 2,000 views (which is why I still keep it around). This baby has over 100 favorites. The YGO fandom is probably the most supportive and nicest fandoms I have come across fanart wise.
8. What are your favorite non-anime TV shows?
Doctor Who, Once Upon A Time, and The Librarians.
9. What are the things you wish you could draw better?
FUCKING HANDS. DAMMIT. Also dynamic poses, shoes, animals…
10. Summer or winter?
11. Rain or Sun?
Sun. (Child of Apollo at her finest.)
12. What's your favorite type of music?
I don’t have a favorite type. If it’s good, I’ll listen to it. I hate country, rap, R&B, and gospel though.
13. PC or Mac
PC. BECAUSE MACS SUCK.
14. Anime or Manga?
Anime. I find it easier to follow because occasionally I’ll forget to read right to left and get confused.
15. Coke or Pepsi?
16. Read or TV?
Here’s a kicker: when I first did this meme, I said read. Now I’m gonna say TV. I still love to read, but I haven’t had time to do so and it seems easier to binge-watch something.
17. How many hours a day do you spend on dA?
Depends on the day. I used to go 6. Now I’m lucky if I can go on for 15 minutes.
18. Name a talent.
I’m a jack of all trades, so it’s hard to just pick one. Singing I guess.
19. Flash or traditional cartoons?
20. What is your favorite fast food restaurant?
Wendy's and Chick fil A.
21. What are your top 3 favorite books (no mangas)?
Old Man’s War… the rest are series. Percy Jackson, Harry Potter.
22. Wii or PlayStation?
Wii, but that’s only because we have one. If I had money, I’d say PlayStation. (Though the WiiU has Super Smash Bros and that’s my favorite game in the entire universe.)
23. Name 3 of your favorite bands/singers.
Fall Out Boy, The Hush Sound, Maroon 5
25. Do you like Denny's?
26. What is your favorite smiley?

The question is who hasn’t?
29. Do you go on dA a lot?
Not as much as I would like.
30. Are you a member on any other sites besides DA?
Tumblr, Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest…
31. Do you cosplay?
I’d like to! But I’m picky and only want to go as characters who look like me. I’m also in the process of losing weight, so once that’s gone I’ll look more into cosplaying.
32. Fruits or sweets?
33. Buttered, plain, or salted popcorn?
Buttered and salted.
34. Have you skipped school?
High school? A few times I pretended to have really bad cramps. College? When I don’t feel like getting up.
But I made Dean’s List, so you can tell it’s not very often. We’re allowed 3 free skip days.

36. Have you swam in an ocean?
Atlantic and Pacific!
37. Have you been ice skating?
I’m not good at it, but yeah.

39. Ever been on TV?
Well as Mac said, I was in a commercial, for Around the World in 80 Days, but I was also on the TV show Zoom once. The crew came to our girl scout camp and asked us to sing our favorite camp song. I sang “Herman the Worman.”
