SING contestSo I've decided to do the SING contest mentioned in the poll. The people who voted "yes" on the poll weren't the majority, but 63 of you wanted to do it and I'm not going to deny them this opportunity.SING contest2 years ago in Personal More Like This
If you didn't see the poll, this is a writing contest. This is the prompt: Write a fic (or draw a comic) about what happens after the SING video. (Whether it's immediately after, a month after, the rest of their lives, etc. Whatever you want.)
These are the only three rules:
No Mary Sue fics. Any Sue fics will be rejected. OCs are fine, but make sure they're believable characters and not annoying, flawless Sues.
You can't say the events of SING were all a dream. Like, you can't have Party Poison wake up and realize that he dreamed the whole thing and everyone is alive and well. That's just too easy. You can bring the band back to life, but only if it happens logically.
You have to write something new. You can't just submit a f

What makes a King?"Jesus is not just a King, rather Jesus is a King who loves you and cares for you so much."What makes a King?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Yes, this is who Jesus Christ is. He is a mighty King who owns everything in this universe. Yet despite being the King of so many things, He still finds time to make the tiny flowers in the field to bloom with colorful petals and time to give lowly sparrows a nest for them to lay their brood. If Jesus Christ can do these beautiful things to these little creatures, how much more can He do to each one of you whom He considers more important than thousands of flowers and sparrows.
This is the King whom we serve. He cares for His subjects more than He cares for Himself - even to the point that He willingly gave His life for us. He does not walk around with flowing robes, surrounded by escorts or shiny jewels while riding a chariot, nor does He indulge in delicious food and wine. He is so humble that he allows anyone, no matter what part of the society they belong, to approach

OmeN2501, creator of the following deviation, Rain, says in the artist comments:
"Story behind it is pretty simple, they want something form her, she cannot let them have it... no matter the cost"
Who is she?
Now the viewer is left with a series of questions... Who is she? Who is pursuing her? What do they want from her? Why is this thing so important she's willing to take her own life if that means they won't have it? What would happen if they get it? And most importantly; what circumstances lead the pieces of this story up to this point?
The answers to these questions are left open to the viewer. It's up to you to decide who she is.

Questions for the audience:
1)How much would you pay for a shirt with captain's face on it, including shipping?
2)The sales program needs a motivational message. What would captain say to motivate random people who are unawares of captain to buy t-shirts?
3)Make up a random quality control quote! How would you rate/criticize these shirts without even seeing them?

Cryptic StitchingWell, as some of you may recall, way back last year I was fooling around with making a game on the StoryNexus engine, put out by Failbetter Games. (They do Fallen London.)Cryptic Stitching5 months ago in Personal More Like This
They announced a few months ago that they're not going to be developing for it any longer, because they're very busy and there's no money in it. And I am entirely sympathetic to this, and understand their reasoning. But--the downside--I probably won't be pursuing this game any longer because once the maker stops supporting it, stuff gets tricky.
But y'know, I put a crapload of work into the world and I love it very much and I would like people to be able to see it.
Act One is playable. It is occasionally buggy--they broke some of the art options--and there are quests that don't wrap up and the Act ends on, not so much a cliff-hanger but with a whole lot of stuff unresolved. And parts of it are dull and grindy and parts of it are probably not at all intuitive and I did not do the best job of design. The art is 99% sto

November something something.
I've got to come up with a better system for telling what day it is. Maybe I could scrawl numbers on the back of my shoe? Nah, that sounds like something silly that Pilot would do.
I'm currently carrying a calendar that says 2012 on it, but I am pretty sure that these days aren't correct anyway to our year and Captain keeps scribbling things in the margins whenever I get distracted enough for the calendar to be snatched out of my hands. I found the calendar more or less intact and it's kinda impressive that it lasted from way back in 2012. It must have held some sort of personal importance to it's owner to seal it away in a plastic container with words "the Mayans were wrong, trust no-one!"
I've been trying to keep track of how old I am, but I keep forgetting to check off every day in the calendar or maybe captain is messing off with me by erasing my checkmarks.
Something tells me I shouldn't be telling Captain about my birthday anyway. I would

On misunderstandings about cosplayThis is a topic I've been meaning to talk about for quite a while now. I finally got the motivation to when Sarah sorairo-days emailed me to share my thoughts on what cosplay means to me, and what I feel it really means to be a cosplayer despite all the misconceptions about the hobby. It's for this article on Random Nerds, in which Sarah shares her side of it as well.On misunderstandings about cosplay2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Over the years, I've witnessed how cosplayers are constantly looked down upon, which makes people apprehensive towards it. It's such a shame because it's a wonderful and rewarding hobby which brings people together. And in general, I am firmly against making anyone feel bad about doing something they want to do.
I am aware that the concept of cosplay might be too much for some individuals, but our intention definitely isn't to get all up in everyone's faces and say everyone should cosplay or whatever. We just want to promote a

SNIPPY: REMEMBERANCES OF THE PAST DAYOctober something, something.SNIPPY: REMEMBERANCES OF THE PAST DAY3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Today captain declared as "REMEMBERANCES OF THE PAST DAY".
The day begun with me getting smacked with a broken laptop and yells "YOU'VE GOT MAIL!".
I tried to protest that laptops weren't attacking people in the mornings back in the past. To this, Captain declared that in fact they didn't have to, because users were so addicted to reading their daily mail facts that every morning they woke up smacking their heads on their laptops.
Then my head was treated to a barrage of empty, metal SPAM cans with words "SPAM MAIL! DODGE THE SPAM! USE FILTERS!".
With these words, captain gave me two old tennis rackets. The tennis rackets had yellow duck-tape stickers on them with words "DELETE" and "BLOCK EMAIL ADDRESS".
The spam can attack didn't end there, Pilot's job for today was hiding behind building ruins and throwing the spam cans at me at random intervals with yells of "INCREASE YOUR GENITAL SIZE!", "RUSSIAN BRIDE LOVES YOU" and "I AM NIGERIAN PRINCE WITH 56 BILL

I've been wanting to make my own calendars for a long time and finally done it!
Here's how they look like on the wall. I saw a lot of these instagram-type calendars on Pinterest and was inspired to make my own. They are each 5'' x 7'' cards printed on premium matte card stock.
They come in loose sheets so you can arrange them in any way you like.
I am mostly likely going to get a table at Fanexpo this year so if enough people are interested, I'll be selling them. ^^

On a side note, I'm officially done my undergrad. Time flew by so fast and it still feels so surreal. I know most people are really happy to be done but I feel indifferent. I feel like I'm not ready to grow up and start another routine. Many of my friends are travelling and enjoying their youth but I'm feeling weighed down by the real world already.

My skin was not always baby-smooth. Throughout my teenage years I had what is known as cystic acne. Life was depressing. I can't say which kind of acne is worse, all-over surface type, or one single giant zit-from-hell in the middle of your forehead. I had the second kind. I was extremely self-concious, and I wouldn't have dared to take stock photos had I not found a way to clear up my skin. Day-to-day, I took my stress out by picking at my skin. You can't see it in my photos now, but I do have some permanent damage from skin-picking. It's a reminder that self-harm is self-harm. You don't have to be taking a razorblade to you
