In Defense of Monster High Part 4- Jinafire LongFirst of all, a HUGE thank you to everyone who took the time to read, comment, and give my foray into non-pony related content a chance. My impetus behind this series of journals was pushing back against many MLP fan's perception that the Monster High influence was Equestria Girls' biggest fault. Obviously I disagree, and I believe that, quite the opposite, what Monster High is a toyline that others should absolute emulate in terms of quality and design competency. It really means a lot to me that you all have taken the time to give these journals, and Monster High, half a chance! Thanks for reading!In Defense of Monster High Part 4- Jinafire Long2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Over the past few days we've discussed both the aesthetic impressiveness of Monster High as well as the quality of the toys themselves. Today I'd like to wrap up by looking at both of these qualities in one doll- Jinafire Long, the golden dragon from Fanghai (If you haven't noticed already, puns abound in the Monster High universe!)

Hello Poke-fans, and welcome new members!
The staff has reached a verdict on 'A Different Type of Pokemon'! We got so many clever entries for this contest and it was hard to pick, so please check out all of the entries here: http://poke-fanclub.deviantart.com/gallery/37229275 There are many more that deserve recognition!
But for now, onto the winners...
While it's easy to merely change a Pokemon's colors and trade its elemental markers for another's, this design creatively works Milotic's traits into a new, but still recognizable identity. A very smart design overall!
As with the 3rd place entry, the trading of a natural-looking flying type into a natural-looking water-dwelling creature is impressive, and comparing Ho-Oh to a lion fish is absolutely inspired. We all felt this was a very creative take on bot
Petition Hasbro to Make Show-Accurate Plushes!Hello Bronies and plush-lovers alike! Today is a special day because we are launching a petition for Hasbro to create show-accurate plushies for all of us out there who can't afford a $400 plush. While we love custom plush makers here on deviantArt, most of us would die to have a beautiful plush doll lovingly crafted to look like our favorite characters. Unfortunately, the majority of us cannot afford to dole out hundreds of dollars for show-accurate plush doll. That is why we've started a petition asking Hasbro to make more show-accurate plushes for all the fans of MLP. If you agree, sign the petition! We hope to reach Hasbro in a way that only the fans of the incredibly popular My Little Pony could.Petition Hasbro to Make Show-Accurate Plushes!3 years ago in Personal More Like This

In Defense of Monster High Pt 2- GhouliaYesterday I touched upon the idea that the real failing of Equestria Girls, at least insofar as the toyline, is that it is geared towards one specific goal- getting a piece of the monster-sized success of Monster High while ignoring the details that have made MH so successful.In Defense of Monster High Pt 2- Ghoulia2 years ago in Personal More Like This
With the next few installments, I want to look at these details, and how they relate to making the individual dolls so excellent and the line so successful. First up- theming and attention to detail, both of which are, in my opinion, the keys to Monster High's success and factors which set them apart from most every other toy on the market.
Each MH doll is a character with not only a distinct, canon personality, but is also based on a monster or fictional creature from folklore or horror films. My example today happens to be not only my favorite character, but also represents my favorite monster as well. Meet Ghoulia Yelps, the zombie and smartest ghoul in school:

In Defense of Monster High Pt3- SkelitaBefore we begin, a quick apology. I am currently without power here at Pixelkitties Manor thanks to the ginormous storm that spanked Pittsburgh yesterday and last night, so I am posting this update via my tablet. I am a terrible typist and proofreader at the best of times, and sitting here pecking at a touchscreen, I worry that this is going to be an incoherent mess! If I sound like an idiot, it's mostly because I'm laboring under less-than-ideal circumstances. And...partially because I'm an idiot. Anyway, on with the stuff!In Defense of Monster High Pt3- Skelita2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Over the past few days I've discussed how detail and a commitment to both brand and character themes are one of the key factors making Monster High such a wildly successful line of dolls. Factors that the Equestria Girls are severely lacking despite a ready-made fandom, backstory, characters, themes and motivations.
Today we'll continue taking a look at the use of theming and details, while also examining how what's under the dol

R.I.P Kiki HavivyKiki Havivy - Two Years of Never Backing DownR.I.P Kiki Havivy2 years ago in Personal More Like This
As many of you may be aware, Kiki Havivy, an incredibly brave little girl that has been in the lives of pony fans throughout the fandom for almost two years now, passed away yesterday after a long struggle with cancer. Tara Strong broke the heartbreaking news yesterday and the community has responded strongly with condolences and other wonderful gestures. The family has responded, thanking the community.
I personally didn't know about this until this morning. News of a death is never easy to take, and its devastating when it's about someone so young and loved by many.
Riposa in pace Kiki, you were strong, and an inspiration to tons of people out there. Thank you.

What is a Daily Deviation?
The Daily Deviation is a daily feature chosen from the galleries here on deviantART.
A small assortment of submissions are chosen each day by a select group of staff/volunteer members who wish to showcase an image which they found impressive or otherwise interesting enough to deserve being brought to the attention of the community-at-large. It is important to note that selections need not be of professional quality in order to be featured for the day.

This is to simply help those who have trouble making creepypastas ocs.
I have taken a lil bit of my time to make this lil chart or text or WHATEVER you wanna call it.
This is to help lots and lots of people
OK LET'S START!!!!!!
One of the main importance is the uniqueness of your pasta oc.
give your pasta something other pastas don't have...
its own trademark it could be in appearance or maybe attitude.
*though you really should aim for appearance mostly is one of the things alot of people like to look into!*
you must sometimes twist up your pasta oc in looks so it can overwhelm people and really make them react all ''wow'' or to the least ''the fuck?'' LOL
just give them a good shocking impression.
doing unique lil things for a pasta oc is not hard

Coffeedogs are a small breed of canine, smaller or about the same size as your average house cat.
They are sweet and lovable, but are NOT lap-dogs.
They are very excitable and hyperactive creatures, prone to getting into and causing mischief.
Their diet contains of coffee beans, any whipped cream and different flavored coffee creamers.
Each coffee dog has a favorite type/flavor of coffee, often taking on the smell of that certain type/flavor.

"So how long have you been hacking?", (Y/N) asked smiling that adorable smile of hers.
"Oh I've been hacking since i was about 11" (Sorry if that does not seem right i don't think he has said when he started hacking in the game so I'm just thinking of a random age), I said, then realizing how geeky i must sound.
"Really?! That's amazing! Your amazing!" (Y/N) said enthusiastically, it was so cute.
"I can't believe an adorable charming gamer girl would ever love me" I thought to myself then I realized what she said, she said I was amazing!

So lets see what happened so far, Matt and I have been together now for a few weeks almost a month, and i guess he said he is going to do something very special for our anniversary. he's so sweet like that, I hate the fact though he is my "enemy". God I wish I hadn't joined the Saints. And to top that Matt is who we are going after right now, so basically i half to help hunt my boyfriend down and he could possibly be killed in the process. Maybe I could ask Matt if I could join the Deckers with him. I mean the Decker's were the gang I had originally wanted to be in anyway, and now I'm dating there leader so it would work out even better now, right?

People who scream that Bonnie/Foxy/Freddy is a boy because someone got it wrong, stfu please.
Emo 7-13 year olds who think they are cool for liking the fnaf fandom, some goes for creepypasta.
And tbh 99% of the fandom is just annoying people complaining about theories/spam/etc
I love the games but I honestly don't wanna consider myself a part of this fandom anymore, my opinion.
This fandom was so great when the game first came out and then youtubers started abusing it, sad.
Kids who scream that it is real, same goes for creepypasta. Don't wanna end up like the two tweens who stabbed their class m8 wolhd ya? Nah.. Those emo tweens would think it's cool and that they are already insane and a demon.
People who complain about shippings. I understand shipping characters can be bothersome but just vent it out in your journal
