:iconemptyspaceplz: OVA Integra and Alu-bat by Sir-Catherine No-Man's LandDead and gone,
Life has fled.
What is left is better off dead.
Dark over and red below,
This is no-man's land
Where soldiers dread to go.
A pipsqueak tweet is the bugle's call.
The charge is yelled "Over the wall!"
To death's waiting arms they climb.
They seep onto the deadly land,
No longer able to care
That the world dies up there.
A nightmare is the scene.
Lost pawns of humanity
To satisfy war's dark vanity.
Dark over and red below,
This is no-man's land
Where soldiers dread to go.
Dark is evil and light is good.
Sparks and flashes reign around.
Showering death with their goodness.
Noise and confusion in deathly silence.
Bombs and mines from Hell's own stores.
Colors blur and sweetness kills.
Fences pierced and then destroyed.
Craters formed and quickly filled.
Death's own warriors they all are.
Dark over and red below,
This is no-man's land
Where soldiers dreaded to go.

:iconemptyspaceplz: Tears of InkCrying out loud
Doesn't feel right.
Neither does shouting
Or putting up a fight.
    Tears aren't endless-
    My throat ran dry.
    People stopped caring.
    The world was a lie
I found some paper,
An old, used pen;
Turned my inside out;
Let my emotions rule again.
    Paper after paper
    Filled with words in ink...
    No need to worry.
    No need to think.
Let it all go
The scars run deep.
It's bleeding out.
This is what i keep:
    A book with letters
    Written in tears,
    My heart on paper,
    My deepest fears.
ShadowI live in a shadow
On a brighter day
I walk in the darkness
On my own "Twisted" way
    People look
    But they don't care
    They think I'm weird
    cause of the clothes i wear
They don't understand me
Then don't want to know
My part of the Story
The one i don't show
    They just look away
    They think I'm a freak
    They hope I'll change
    But I'm not that weak
I have my soul
I still have my mind
I know what they're trying
I'm not blind
    I wont follow them
    Even when I'm alone
    I have my own path
    I'm not a clone
So i keep walking
And let them stare
Thinking to myself
"I'm just rare"
    I will manage
    Make it trough the day
    Never will I care
    About what they want to say
The shadow is my home
My most trusted friend
It never lies
It doesn't pretend
So i let go of it all
Hope i don't fall
I close my eyes
Let the darkness rise
    I feel the familiar embrace
    Of the cold shadow on my face
Is it real?Look at me
Look at my eyes
Look at the ocean
Look at the skies
      What do you see
      What do you feel
      Does it look right
      Does it look real
You look and you touch
But you don't see or feel
      This reality...
      I wonder if it's real

Just need to write this down since it's been on my mind since last year WHEEZES



Name: idk yet

basically they're chinchilla hybrid sorta things that eats dreams [[sweet dreams, nightmares, wet dreams B) u name it]]

They have patterns on their ears that look like eyeballs sorta
 E9f8199fab8b19ac31229555838c0870 by minivai
basically like dis hhah heha But the tails are generally fluffier or have more volume (this one's not as fluffy because he represents dreams of drowning in the ocean ) 

The markings on their ears are where they "eat" dreams, and in their adolescence, they eat whatever dream they find, but as they grow older, they begin to have their own preference. Some more pickier than the others. 

some types of dream eaters idk:
Sweet tooth: loves to eat those often referred to as "sweet dreams". 
Nightmares: self explanatory LOL. Often times those who prefer nightmares get "corrupted" and see the dreams as real life. 
Wet Dreams: lo
There are other types but I'm just gonna stop here LOL 

The markings on their ears/back may differ depending on the dreams they eat/ how young they are/ rarity/ etc. 

UPDATE: Apparently the new terms are only applicable to content made specifically for Paypal. The way it's worded is really confusing, and legalese in general is a mess to comprehend, but this sounds pretty legit. ponies-on-paper.tumblr.com/pos… Here's hoping, anyway!


On July 1st, 2015, Paypal is updating its terms of service.

Amendment to the PayPal User Agreement.

Intellectual Property


We are adding a new paragraph to section 1.3., which outlines the licence and rights that you give to us and to the PayPal Group (see paragraph 12 below for the definition of “PayPal Group”) to use content that you post for publication using the Services. A similar paragraph features in the Privacy Policy, which is removed by the addition of this paragraph to the User Agreement. The new paragraph at section 1.3 reads as follows:

“When providing us with content or posting content (in each case for publication, whether on- or off-line) using the Services, you grant the PayPal Group a non-exclusive, worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, royalty-free, sublicensable (through multiple tiers) right to exercise any and all copyright, publicity, trademarks, database rights and intellectual property rights you have in the content, in any media known now or in the future. Further, to the fullest extent permitted under applicable law, you waive your moral rights and promise not to assert such rights against the PayPal Group, its sublicensees or assignees. You represent and warrant that none of the following infringe any intellectual property right: your provision of content to us, your posting of content using the Services, and the PayPal Group’s use of such content (including of works derived from it) in connection with the Services.”


What this means is that, starting July 1st, if you use Paypal to accept payment for art commissions or to run an online business selling your own work, then Paypal claims total copyright ownership of your work. It doesn't belong to you anymore and they can do what they want with it.

This kind of business is fucking wretched, and I can't fathom how Paypal doesn't think this will drive away their business. No one is going to want to use Paypal if it means that Paypal suddenly owns all their work. All I can say is Google Wallet is suddenly looking a lot more appealing. >__>

At the moment I'm going to ask my upcoming commissions customers to mark the payment as a gift when you send me the payment money. As far as I'm concerned, Paypal has no business knowing what your money is for and even less business trying to tell me that they own the pictures I draw. Fuck that.

This is Patra. 

Patra is a beautiful female black fox with purple eyes. She is the princess of the temple in mirage oasis, who makes her debut in Pac-Man Party. She resembles the Egyptian deity Anubis.

Also, SHE'S FREAKING ADORABLE!!!

But she was in a game barely anyone even played, no one has even heard of her! How did I discover her? I work at a game stop and I spent a couple hours organizing their Wii section, and she was on the cover art for the game. I had to know more about her! And do you know what I found when I looked up fanart for her? Barely anything! And what there is, sucks! There is literally no decent fanart of her! O_o How can this be! She's as cute as Elh from Solatorobo, which alone warrants fan art (:iconraijinsenshi: 's words)! This is a sin!

Well I'm going to rectify this! >.< It's time for a CONTEST! :D *Applause*

***THE PATRA FANART CONTEST!***

That's right everyone, I'm holding a contest! You have from now (Aug. 12) to the end of the month (Aug. 31) to participate in the contest. Here are the rules.

1) Fanart and fictions are allowed, but I'm extremely strict on fictions. If it has bad grammar or spelling, I'm not going to bother reading it. And it may be hard for you to stay true to her character, so fanart is just easier, but I'll try to make time and effort for any fictions entered.

2) Nothing Explicit. If you can't post it on deviantart then it's not acceptable. I'm not looking for fanart of her getting *beep*ed in the *beep*. The art I want can range from cute things like her sipping from a juice box or nomming on one of your characters heads, to more kinky things like getting her skirt flipped up or spanked. Of course obvious things are not allowed like Gore, Vore, Scat, Watersports, Farting, Fingering, HEAVY Bondage, ect.

3) Your OCs ARE allowed. If you wanna draw her interacting with pacman characters, other random licensed characters, or even your own original charatcers, that's perfectly fine.

4) You can do as much fanart as you want. In fact, quality AND Quantity are going to be taken into consideration here. I'm trying to get as much decent fanart as I can, not just one from everyone. So if you wanna do more, I emplore you to do more!

5) No hate. This contest is for fun and to show love for a newly discovered adorable character. Show positive feedback even to your competition.

I assure you, you're not doing all this for nothing of course.

1st place = Up to three fictions from me, whether they be completely different, or a part of a series.

2nd place = Up to two fictions from me, whether they be completely different, or a two part series.

3rd place = 1 fiction from me.

It can be about original characters, characters from a series you like (but I have to know about the series otherwise I can't write about it) and so on. It won't be super omega long though. Writing fictions takes time and effort, and I do have a life people. It won't have to be super short either, but I'm not going to write the odyssey for you keep in mind. :XD: 

Those are the rules and the prizes. I look forward to what you people draw whether it's dirty, cute, or casual. Let me know when you have fanart of her in case I don't notice it right away. I'll post your contest entries here for everyone to see. Good luck everyone! :meow:

I have touched upon the extreme loathing I have for the Ultimate Spider-Man cartoon in some previous journals, but for those who may not have read it, the cartoon is a shallow, annoying train wreck that is helmed by a team of incredibly talented writers with a lot of credit to their names, but overlorded by Jeph Loeb, head of Marvel Animation. It bears no resemblance to the excellent comic it gets its title from, the characters are all annoying, the "humor" is just mind-numbingly awful, the stories are dull and uncreative, and there is no character development, no story development, and only the barest sense of continuity.

The show is reviled by the majority of Spidey fans, and not only do fans hate it, but according to an anonymous source working on the show, the majority of the show's production staff hate it too. Even Paul Dini is not happy with it, and wanted it to have some maturity, which Jeph Loeb denied. Despite Loeb's insistence that the cartoon is doing great, its ratings have dropped steadily and most believe that the only reason people are watching it is because it airs right before the popular Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes.

Speaking of Avengers: EMH, that show is getting canceled. Why, you may ask? Because Jeph Loeb apparently thinks that younger kids have no grasp of continuity or mature characters and storytelling. According to Loeb, he wants Marvel Animation to prepare younger kids to be Marvel fans. What does this mean? It means that the last bunch of episodes of EMH's season are going to do away with all traces of an overarching story and follow a style...more like Ultimate Spider-Man. Then Marvel Animation plans to start a whole new Avengers cartoon that will most likely take place in the Ultimate Spider-Man cartoon's universe.

On top of this, I have only just learned of Marvel's next upcoming animated series: Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H. The preview image shows Hulk, Red Hulk, Skaar the Son of Hulk, She-Hulk, and A-Bomb. According to the anonymous source, "the episode stories of the show are very simple, under-explained and many times don't make sense at all. Much like Ultimate Spider-man, HULK Agents of SMASH's characters backgrounds is never explored, but only touched upon (just like Ultimate spider-man's teammates). Hulk Agents of SMASH can be described as a mindless action show, with no character development and no intelligent stories." Let me just ask you this, you readers who are not die-hard comics fans: How many names that I listed above do you recognize? How in the world are we supposed to know or care about the Red Hulk or A-Bomb or Skaar when there are years of story and character development behind them all that new viewers will know nothing about? And guess what? This is what Jeph Loeb wants for all Marvel Cartoons. He wants them all to be as ridiculous and inane as Ultimate Spider-Man because he thinks kids are stupid. And he somehow thinks that these awful cartoons will encourage kids to want to read comics?


Let me explain something to you, Mr. Loeb, on the crazy off-chance you ever see this. Do you want to know why DC and Warner Bros have always had more success with their comic-based cartoons than Marvel? Because they do the opposite of what you are doing. I grew up on Batman: The Animated Series, acclaimed as possibly the greatest cartoon show of all time. I watched it when I was about five years old. Yes, the more intelligent and mature writing went over my head, but you know what? It encouraged me to learn more. I wanted to know what those words and concepts I didn't understand meant. And it inspired me to want to see and know more about Batman and his fascinating enemies. As I grew up, so did the maturity and depth of the DC Animated universe, with such shows as Superman: The Animated Series, Batman Beyond, Justice League, and Justice League Unlimited. All those series take place in the same massive continuity and created a rich world of imagination. And even though later DC shows like Legion of Superheroes and Young Justice don't take place in the DCAU, they adhered to that standard of developed characters and mature storytelling. They treat their viewers as intelligent people, Mr. Loeb.

And it is not just the DC cartoons, either. The 90s X-Men cartoon was just as immersing and enriching to me as a child as Batman. The 90s Spider-Man show, while not as good, still had an intricate continuity throughout its entire run, while each episode still told its own story. X-Men Evolution is praised for its focus on the characters and their continual growth and relationships. Wolverine and the X-Men, much like Spider-Man, told episodic stories that still advanced an overarching plot.

And finally, The Spectacular Spider-Man. This show was the best adaptation of the web-slinger we will most likely ever see. And do you know why? Because it did everything you are not doing in Ultimate Spider-Man. It started slow, easing us into the world and the characters, giving itself time to build instead of spending the entire first episode force-feeding exposition down our throats. It introduced several characters early, before they became important, so that their main introduction as heroes or villains had that much more meaning to the audience. It used Spider-Man's rich comic book history to draw inspiration instead of cramming in crossover heroes and villains in every single episode, like Ultimate Spider-Man does. Like other examples I listed above, it used story arcs to their fullest potential, instead of choosing to ignore continuity completely like you want to. The characters grew and changed with time, and we learned more about them as they grew and thus we cared about them more. It took its time to build drama and tension because it understood the concepts of buildup and payoff. The creators didn't try to throw in something huge like Venom into the fourth episode because they knew what a terrible idea that would be from a dramatic viewpoint. The Spectacular Spider-Man did everything right that a comic adaptation can do, and I will never be able to praise it enough. What you want to do with Marvel Animation is everything you can do wrong. The fact that your Facebook page had to be deleted because of fan hatedom for Ultimate Spider-Man should tell you something about that.
