FAQ+ Resources:


Are Artisans and Travelers allowed?
Yes! Both breeds are allowed for this event. Only Queens are restricted.

How do I add uncommon or rare traits onto my MYO Faelidh?
-Sharing the event via journal or deviation will allow you to add 1 uncommon trait to your Faelidh!
-If you are able to get 3 people to join this event, then you have the option to include ONE rare trait to one Faelidh entry.

If you make a journal, please link me below and I will add you to the list of accepted uncommon trait users! If you manage to get 3 other people to join, have those people say so in the comments and I will add you to the rare trait users!

Why cant I give my Faelidh an outfit?
A Faelidh's status is based on what they wear! The more accessories the have or if they have a outfit means they are very skilled at what they do, and have a high place in Faelidh society. Accessories and outfits will be used as a reward for completing future event prompts in the group with your Faelidh. However small accessories like some flowers or a scarf or some earrings are ok! (And of course the mandatory tail cloths!)

How many times can I enter?
You can enter as many times as you'd like!

Faelidh with an uncommon trait will cost $20 or 1800 :points:
Faelidh with a rare trait will cost $25 or 2500 :points:

How many winners will there be?
Undecided! It will depend on how many entries there are and will correspond accordingly. Less entries means less winners, more entries mean more winners, etcetc. I don't have a set number for winners.

What if I include a backstory/job with my Faelidh?
It would definitely be nice to see! It is not required however.

The Basics
Faelidh (pronounced: 'fay-lee')
Faelidh are teeny little creatures that are responsible for the upkeep and care of the world! There are two breeds-Artisans and Travelers. Artisans, the non winged ones, are responsible for creating anything the world may need, whether its dyes for changing leaves, a new winter fur coat for animals, crafting the morning dew, or creating snowflakes-they do it all! Travelers, the winged ones, are responsible for bringing the work that the Artisans have done and putting it into the world. A group of Faelidh is called a 'caravan'. Each caravan contains anywhere from 20-50 members, although outliers in either direction have been known to happen.At the top of a caravan reigns a Queen-much like a beehive! She is responsible for ensuring that the work goes smoothly within the community and no problems arise.Faelidh commonly range in size fr
  Faelidh Q+Aedit: check out some of the replies down below!! :3c feel free to keep asking too! 
i plan on releasing some more Faelidh information soon, but before I do I'd like to hear any questions you guys might have about the species and their world! Anything about the caravans, their world, social structure, culture, etcetc-shoot them at me! 
I've been worldbuilding for them in my spare time but I feel like this could really help push them further with your help!! nvn I'd love to hear and answer and this'll help me a lot when I compile another information sheet for these guys!

Hey guys! I’m holding an art raffle before I open commissions.
On the 20th of December AWST, I will pick one winner that could grab either 2 coloured sketches, 2 fullbody pixels or a small 3d model with animations! They get to decide!

To join, all you need to do is favourite this journal.

If the journals gets over 100 favourites I will add another winner who can choose from the other 2 remaining prises that the first winner will leave. Another 100 and I will add another winner who will receive the last gift.
I also may extend the time by a few days if there is a small amount of people.

Edit:
Forgot to mention that some people on other sites who don't have a DA will be participating through me. I have given them a number so the number you have may not be your actual number!! Obviously it doesn't really matter since you are still in the raffle. Sorry about the confusion.
Next time I'll think of a way to host this better : /

Edit2:
To see what number you are, I've made a list that I will be updating every so often!

Hey guys! it's been a while! Been super busy with some really exciting stuff but that will come later!

For now, here's a tutorial on how to colorize a greyscale painting using gradient maps, something I do quite often!

Hope you like it :D

I’m selective over what I go to the cinema to see. If I don’t think a movie needs to be seen on a big screen, I’ll happily wait for the DVD, seeing as they cost about the same as a movie ticket these days.
Comedy films are the best example of this practice. I’ll see them eventually, but they almost never tempt me into a cinema viewing.
The Interview however, I may go to see twice. I don’t have any kind of inside knowledge about how funny it will be, nor does the known plot scream “must see!”. I’m simply going to make a point of catching it at the flicks out of pure spite toward the hacking group who are making terror threats over it.

The Interview is about a celebrity journalist and his producer, who land an interview with the leader of North Korea. The CIA recruit the duo and charge them with the task of assassinating him.
The whole thing smells a bit like the Cold War classic Spies Like Us. The DPRK, however, isn’t as renowned for its sense of humour as it is hysterical overreaction, and has taken the movie’s release as an act of war.
Though no official ties have been made between North Korea and the group behind the Sony hack and ensuing threats, it’d be surprising if someone else was behind it all.

Comedy has always been the best way to destroy a tyrant, so let’s all point and laugh.

Anti-Feminist =/= Anti-Woman

Journal Entry: Wed Dec 17, 2014, 4:48 PM
The opinions in this journal are my own and you don't have to agree. Remember that we all have our own opinions and are entitled to them before you decide to get pissed off at me for expressing mine. If you do agree with me, thanks! And please, read before you comment. 
--

Every time I promise myself I won't rant about a certain topic again after doing it a couple times already, I see a ridiculous comment or an idiotic deviant that makes it so hard to keep that promise. I've made journals about feminism before and I've mentioned how I do support sane, reasonable feminists who have logic and I have no issues with them at all. However, I saw a comment thread today that made me want to scream. I won't link it, because I don't want anyone to go and jump into the conversation and make it into something bigger than it should be. Anyway, it was on a stamp about anti-feminists and this radfem was talking about how men have no problems, it's okay for women to go out and just give their bodies away to whoever because that's a form of "self-respect", and that anyone who is an anti-feminist is an oblivious retard. Yes, a retard. 

How? Want to explain to me how someone who doesn't want to be a part of a movement that, nowadays, the mere mention of makes people want to run away or cringe, is a retard? A movement that is--because of radical feminazis--starting to support misandry more than equality? I'm sorry. I think I missed the memo somewhere along the line. I don't think that makes someone a retard, I think that's their choice and if you want to be anti-feminist, go right ahead. Because, guess what? You can be anti-feminist and not be anti-woman. I don't support a lot of the things some feminists do, but it doesn't mean I don't think women deserve rights. They do, by all means. But so do men. We all deserve rights.

About the whole "women can give their bodies away if they want to" thing, yes. They can, if that's their choice. Doesn't mean I have to agree and think that's okay. Before anyone claims I'm a slut-shamer, I'll say this: I don't just throw the words 'slut' or 'whore' around willy-nilly. Just because someone thinks another person is a slut doesn't make it so. I've been called a slut. Doesn't mean I am one. However, I do not and will never support casual sex with whoever you wish, cheating on your partner just to get it, and giving your body and self-respect away in the name of "being a powerful woman" or because of the excuse "men do it! So can we!". AND men can be sluts too. They're just as bad in my opinion. 

I also read that anyone who claims to be egalitarian but not feminist is doing it wrong because if you're egalitarian, you're automatically feminist. Not really, because I do believe that a great number of "feminists" out there use that term and the meaning of true feminism to feed their superiority complex. Egalitarianism isn't about superiority in any form, in any group of people. It is the belief that we are all equal and should be treated as such. 

I'm not saying I'm anti-feminist. Yet. I will be, if radfems don't go away. I know, I know. I shouldn't judge a whole group of people based on the opinions and actions of a few shitheads, and I'm not. I know there are some really awesome feminists out there. I'm friends with a couple. But those who act like they alone are the ones being oppressed even though they have it waaaay better than some women, treat all men like rapists/abusers/pigs in general, and attack anyone who dares disagree with their opinions and views on "equality" need to just calm down and do their research on what feminism was originally intended to be.
