Oh my god. I never knew that this was going to happen but I beg of you to please help me.

My Mom came home just now crying to me. I didn't know what was wrong until she told me that my Dad doesn't have money to pay the mortage. Since my parents are not in good terms with each other (from a few journals back) this is more saddening news to me. I never expected it would be like this. I never wanted this to happen :( 
My mother also revealed to me that ever since she lost her job,we have been behind 1 month in the mortage. This is more shocking news because my sister is having trouble breathing at night so she needs a mini ac and we do not have it, my Dad spent more than what we thought he spended up in New York. Making is account balance $-800 and now this. 
My life has completely become a hell ever since 2 years ago and I really overall just sadden by everything that has happened.

So please I beg of you to help me with this. I might throw in a few sketches or something to make up for it.
My goal is to make about 
 

$2000


That might be enough to pay the mortage and the few necessities in my house because I didn't even eat that much this morning.

I'm seriously not lying about this or I wouldn't even share it. It's really hard for me to write this because I never wanted to end up like this but I did.

My Paypal account is yuino2121@gmail.com


I might set up a go fund me thing so you can help out. 

If you do not have Paypal or do not have the money, please SHARE this journal.


I really need help because tomorrow will mark 2 months since the mortage has not been paid and then at the end of September,that's when I need the money by. It's because that they might foreclose the house and it will mark 3 months since the mortage has been paid. 

So please help because I really need it at the moment.



//Edit
I was able to make a fund for this. If you want to help click on this link: www.youcaring.com/the-jarrett-…

Otherwise you can still donate to my paypal.
Also Thank you for all your support by spreading this around. You guys are really helpful and I thank you from the bottom of my heart. Also I might be selling a few adopts for this and they will be sent through the donation widget.

//Edit 2

Thank you to the people who donated so far. So far I've made

$70/$2000

I also talked with my Dad about it yesterday but I have a feeling he didn't really want to talk about it with me. I think it was just to rough for him to think about such a scenario but thank you for all your help

Reading the news


The man who reads nothing at all is better educated than the man who reads nothing, but newspapers.

Now it's time for cliche note #2 as promised! Our next note will be on the subject of The Antagonist. A reality show's most reliable tool, right next to the challenges & eliminations, is the antagonist. We all know an antagonist when we see one. Almost always they've done the stupid job of revealing themselves in the beginning & told us, the viewers, what exactly they'll be doing all season long. I mentioned this in Plot Immunity & The Predictability in case you're curious.

So you want to make a good antagonist? How do we go about doing this? What can you do to make the villain tasteful as opposed to tasteless & just how long should they stick around? I think the biggest question is: Why does this matter so much?

Since joining the TP Community 5 years ago, I've watched TONS of shows & have made TONS of shows as well. Among most of them I noticed the same thing going down: The Antagonist was so important that they everything they did dominated MOST of the episodes until they're long-overdue elimination. I never understood this logic up until I stopped working on AXC.....why does the antagonist matter so much to a reality show? Well for starters this stems from our source material, Total Drama, following a similar logic for a few of it's seasons (ALL OF THEM ACTUALLY!) Heather, Courtney, Alejandro, Lightning/Jo/Scott, Mike/Mal & Sugar were all considered antagonists in their own right. However let's make one thing clear: Heather, Alejandro & Scott (S4) are the archetypes we usually follow most often. Their particular moves in the competition respectively are almost always the same motives & inspiration seen in TPI's who have a villain. Don't try denying it either. If you've committed the art of sabotage, manipulation, utilized an obvious hot guy/girl for their good looks or had an "evil" alliance among other things then the deed has already been done.

Let's face it guys making an antagonist is exciting. It's the character we get to see do the most damage, stir the pot & cause a lot of drama. However, as I stated in my previous cliche note, it's how far they go that bugs me nowadays. The villain is almost always put on some high pedestal while everyone else tries taking them out. Why do we do that guys? Why do we do that EVERY TIME!? Not everyone does it, but more TPI makers have done it then not. So now we go back to my question in the beginning: So you want to make a good antagonist? Let's figure out how we can do that....pay attention to these next few points. All of these are strictly opinion-based & should be treated as such. My advice is opinion, not law. Let's get started!

  1. STOP Calling Them An Antagonist/Villain: This is important guys. You don't have to outright call anyone an antagonist or villain. If you openly state that in the beginning then the character is already preparing themselves for a world of hate, sabotage & whatever else you can come up with. It's almost always the case. The person in question could be antagonizing but they don't have be called an antagonist. For all we know that antagonizing force could've been a good person who made a few mistakes. That usually falls under "Accidental Villain" territory (a rarity nowadays.)
  2. Don't Make Them So Important: Stemming from a previous point made earlier, the villain is usually put on a high pedestal & given so much relevance even when their time is up in the game. It's become apparent that most of us (not all of us) like to keep the antagonists we create for as long as possible because they're the only ones who provide the drama needed to make this show worth doing. Well to make this work YOU need to take that logic & burn it with fire! I understand what an antagonist can do but keeping them around for 30+ episodes while finding convenient ways to make their stay MUCH longer just so you have drama, tension, etc has grown old. That doesn't mean make a new villain just so you can oust the former one, which brings me to my next point.
  3. Replacing A Villain When The First One Becomes Irrelevant: My good friend Wave likes to call this "one-upping a villain" which has been done since the beginning. The former antagonist wasn't good enough or you, the creator/writer, knew they were bad from the jump & gave no effort to said antagonist. So naturally, you replace them with someone who's much worse (supposedly -_-) & get rid of your former badass. Sound familiar? I've seen it on most of the shows I've watched, reviewed or have done myself. DON'T DO THIS....well not like this. Your goal is to create antagonizing people not outright villains. If you want more than one bad person in the mix, that's fine but that means you have to work extra hard towards what they'll be doing in the game & how long to keep them, which leads into my next point.
  4. Axe Them When Relevancy Grows Thin: I can't stress how many times I've seen the antagonist survive eliminations when they were clearly easy vote-offs but suddenly....a new plan appears & they're magically safe for another episode. EVERY FREAKING TIME this happens, I realize how easy it would've been to screw the antagonist up but technicalities or plot convenient moments won't allow it. This form of writing is usually done in order for the writer to keep it interesting & increase the drama knowing their resident baddie is still around to wreak havoc. At the moment, Absol from TPI's TPWT is guilty of this. I don't hate the season, but I do hate that Absol has manged to avoid EVERY elimination since the merge began. One episode after the other, he survived through sabotage, technicalities & a surprise plot twist from.....sorry thinking about Ep.41's ending makes me rage so I'm going to leave it alone. It's better this way. Back on topic, I don't appreciate it when villains are kept around simply because: WITHOUT THEM I MUST DO SOMETHING WITH THE OTHER CHARACTERS...OH NO! Do you want to hear a fun fact: one of the reasons AXC Season 5 didn't work was because of how badly I wanted my antagonist to shine over all of the all-stars & make big moves when that shouldn't have been my biggest priority. I tried to make Grovyle a big bad for Season 5 (as shown in the finisher) & it led to BS moments that would've kept him until the finale, which it did. When they're not relevant anymore, AXE THEM! Their are other characters who can fit the bill of a plot & can keep tension but NOT be antagonizing....which leads me to my final point.
  5. EVERYONE IS IMPORTANT: Now I know I made it clear in my Building A Better Merge cliche note that every character in the merge should be important to some degree but here's a more specific term: IMPORTANT UNTIL THEY'RE GONE! No excuses guys! You can't rely on your antagonist at all times! The other contestants need a chance to shine in the game. Electivire was fun to watch, but it was equally fun watching Nidoking butt heads with him. Absol on TPWT is fun to watch but having others interact with him was important to, at the very least, keeping EVERYONE important as the game progressed. Now everyone has their own way of doing things, but I still believe that anyone who makes the merge needs to be relevant to an extent & once they lose that relevancy, must be sent away before "background/under the radar syndrome" takes over.
In conclusion, it's ok to make an antagonist but never assume that they have to be the most important but most of all don't openly state their role in the game simply because your notes say "The Villain." ANYONE can be an antagonizing force to be reckoned with but it's up to you to figure out how that can be done. You can give an outright villain as much backstory & likability as you'd like but at the end of the day it all depends on how long you plan on keeping them that determines what lengths you'll go to create drama & tension. Have fun making villains but try not to be so obvious guys but also know that no one has to be a villain from the jump as well. Total Pokemon Music seems to be thriving on the "anyone can be antagonizing" logic right about now. It's easy to do, but also challenging since your writing comes into play. But don't ever feel discouraged to make a villain you'd like...just know that there are other ways to make a good antagonist.

:icondextroluma:
Dextroluma are a closed species created by me! ♥
DEXTROLUMA: SPECIES GUIDE by Lunathyst


Please read about my species before joining this as it is vital and details need to be known. The fact that they don't interact with other species/humans etc is very important.

Closed species: Dextroluma//update
*Note this is a closed species. Which means you CANNOT make your own*
However you can get these by customs / rare trades or adopts I sell!
Dextroluma / or Dextro for short!
Bio of Dextroluma species:
Commonly found throughout forest lakes, trees or pools, this species is quite gentle. They are able to live in up to 5 different climates. Dextroluma feed off of luminous fungi, Mycena luxaeterna (light eternal) and mostly at night, this helps them keep their bodies glowing and healthy. They prefer not to eat anything else as it appears alien to them but, should they decide against this, it will not damage them in any way. Naturally this species is born without functioning eyes, instead their eye sockets are pure white and glow as such, yet they are still able to see through a kind of light perception. Their eyes will still give off the illusion of pupils though. Usually Dextro sleep throughout the day and explore at night,


GOOD LUCK EVERYONE!

THIS RAFFLE WILL END 15TH SEPTEMBER!



Dust particles glittered like tiny stars in the sunlight between the large ancient columns. A deep blue sky and fluffy small clouds bobbed and moved within the faintest breeze and the sun shone like a firey beacon sending its heat in waves to the ground.

Far below in the red sand tiny scorpions dived for cover as large brown boots trod through sending up clouds of red dust making them skitter into the shadows.

Sparks of silver. Twins, one in each holster swayed slowly at her hips as she ran between the large orange columns. Some where whole others cracked and broken and laying in the sand but all had once stood proud for many centuries before.

Black fingerless gloves, brown shorts and a greenish top were her signature. Her golden belt buckle shon like the sun supporting her gunbelt and her long brown braid bounced along her back and across the medium sized two buckled backpack which held flares, medikits,water and ammo.

As she made her way through the columns she ran her hands along the rough stones. Heiroglyphs were etched into them but were unreadable.She could of made them out if they'd of been clearer.
She sighed. It was a shame how these old temples and glorious parts of history were slowly sinking into the dark egyptian sands. Even the great pyramid was losing height it seemed.

Moving forward she edged her way toward a large archway. Golden bricks and dark grey mud formed the arch and she squinted her eyes to try and peer into the darkness beyond.Having no luck she reached into her back pack and pulled out one of the red flares she always carried with her. Not only did they dispay the darkness but somtimes kept unsavoury creatures away. She knew that scarab beatles may or may not be in residence and didnt fancy becoming a snack for them.

Clicking the flare between her hands it broke and lit up with a bright green glow. It reflected in her red sunglasses and she held it above her head.
Treading carefully she moved slowly under the arch and into a large cavern. The green glow from her flare lit up a golden orange pathway in the sand. She moved the flare and saw small black scorpions disapear as the light touched them. They didnt bother her and she carried on into the room. She looked in awe at what was held within.

"The sanctuary of the scion" she gasped.

The fabled resting place of the atlantean scion. An artifact so powerful it had been split into three and lay in Peru,Egypt and Greece. It was said the three leaders of Atlantis had discarded the Scion after one of them had gone mad with power and used it for her own means. Noone knew what had happened to her but she was never seen after the Scion had been disposed of.

"I knew it existed" Lara smiled to herself and walked into the room.

Far above her a massive golden coloured Sphinx gazed at the room. It was so tall that it touched the ceiling and its giant paws dwarfed Lara. To her right was a hill of sand and columns some buried deep with drifts and others reaching high above her head like the sphinx. To her left massive stone steps were carved into a wall reaching up to an open doorway. It looked precarious but Lara wasnt scared of heights luckily.Unsure of which way to go Lara was distracted for a minute untill a flash of white and red caught her eye.

What was it? She peered at the columns where it had been a second ago.

"what...the...." she never finished.

A large panther type creature wrapped in decaying bandges and rotten flesh pounced and jumped at her. Lara dodged and kicked out catching the creature in its stomach.

"Graaaaaaaaaaa" It hissed.

Lara rolled and fell into the sand sending up clouds around them both. Getting her footing she pushed herself up to a crouching position just as the creature came at her bearing its long white fangs and its foul breath.She grabbed its arms and swung it round with all her strength throwing it into the giant right paw of the sphinx. While it was dazed she slipped her pistols from there holsters and aimed at the creature which was writhing and growling trying to get back up.

"Badammmm badammmm" she fired repeatedly as the creature struggled to stand.Bullets ripped into the bandages and it howled as flesh and bandages fell to the sand. It raised as if to pounce but Lara was quicker and fired again.

"Badammm badammm badammm" It hissed and writhed but finally fell into a pile of bandages and bones. Its flesh disapeared and it was dead. Nothing but bones lay in a pile in the orange sand. Lara breathed out and holstered her guns.
I have seen tons of breathtaking deviations related to the sky, whether day or night, from sunrise to sunset, and I wanted to make a journal posting all those :) Hope you all enjoy it and don't forget to look at the galleries of all these incredible artists!
