Winners, please tell me if you want the membership or points! Prize donators, please note the winners asking what they would like.
Without further ado;
I think this was quite an obvious win, haha. The colours are beautiful, I love the style and the attention to detail is fantastic. As a bonus, it's two of my favourite ocs, Melody and Aria.

Re: Openness about my depression and diseaseSo over the past year or so, I've been talking a lot about my struggles with depression and the resulting eating disorder I developed to "cope".Re: Openness about my depression and disease2 years ago in Personal More Like This
There are reasons for this. For one thing, I can no longer afford to seek professional counseling so I really feel like I have no one to talk to about it. There are few people I interact with on a daily basis who understand what it's like to live with severe clinical depression, and less who share my particular eating disorder.
Since I've started posting journals and artwork related to my mental health, people have been wonderfully supportive. They even call me brave for coming out into the open with these issues.
I don't know if I'd call it brave, really. It took a lot to get me to come out about my disease the first time, true, but since then it's been easier.
There's a stigma in our society today that sends the message that depression is something to be ashamed of. "Normal" people get along fine day-to-day, what's the matter with than porti
Lord of the Rings, The Return of the KingEvery time i watch this moovie, i cant help being anoyed by the fact that everyone just forgets Sam is there with Frodo, like "lets do it 4 frodo", "lets give frodo a chance" .. or when the ring is destroyed, they scream like YAY FRODO! and when mordor explodes, they all are like oh shit, NO FRODO!Lord of the Rings, The Return of the King2 years ago in Personal More Like This
WHAT ABOUT SAM?!!!!!!!!!! damn! SAM is way cooler than Frodo is. he carried the dude (too muh of a good friend, in the verge of stupid worship), if it wasnt for him, no ring would have been destroyed!
(and no, i didnt read the books, so i dont know how it goes there... i stopped reading at The Hobbit, dont know why)
and yeh i like the film, i do, but the laughing scene with the golden light when peace is regained bothers me too.
so i guess im saying: Frodo... go to Ring Rehab! go go go. you clearly need it, you shouldnt have bitched Sam so much (ps: i dont hate you)
Sam: you are cool, you deserve Rosie and everything you want.
oh please dont hate me for this journal, p
Pay $250 so we can tell you your eye doesn't workBut we don't know why!Pay $250 so we can tell you your eye doesn't work2 years ago in Personal More Like This
That sums up my day.
So I went into the doctor today for an emergency visit, my eye was showing all of the early symptoms of retina detachment and I was truly freaked out over it. To top it all off, i've been nauseated and generally felt awful. Blind in the very center of my right eye, black spots everywhere, hazey, heavy blurred vision and generally the entire right side of my head is freaking out. Well, everything checked out okay. Eyes are healthy, with glasses on i'm 20/20 in my left eye, should be fine in my right eye but as I failed my eye chart despite it being fine and instisting this was a new thing (this whole blind in the center of my eye thing), they sent me home pretty much "welp, no idea! here's the bill and come back later"
after some fancy pants googling and asking around, I think I may have a silent migraine (since its the entire right side of my head flipping out, i'm also nauseated and i've been having olfactory and auditory hallucinations)
Spoilers for Sherlock S2 E3 ReichenbachCopy+pasted from my LJ, but my thoughts on the episode which are kinda ranty.Spoilers for Sherlock S2 E3 Reichenbach2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Is it just me or are Mycroft and Sherlock really stupid.
I don't quite understand how either of them fell for Moriarty's story about his magical computer code that could open any door he wanted. Did neither of them investigate if any of the people who worked in the places that were broken into had any connections to Moriarty, or at least were acting suspiciously? Or was Moriarty soooo amazing that he erased all connections he had to himself?
But even then, Sherlock knows Moriarty's tactics of threatening civilians to bend to his will, so shouldn't he have at least suspected that instead of, well, a magical computer code?? It seems like a really huge leap for Sherlock to believe such a tall tale when there were plenty of other ways for Moriarty to pull off his act which he didn't seem to really bother looking into.
And Mycroft! Why on earth did he let Moriarty free? By the look of things, he got bas

Last night, New Zealand became the 13th country in the world to allow same sex couples to marry
While we won't see any same sex marriages until August, I'm definitely excited about this bill getting through
Now, I've been following the marriage equality bill since it was first proposed, and I've been hoping & praying for it to be passed ever since (for obvious reasons). So I'm really happy that it has been passed, after months of debate and people protesting and...all sorts of things going on
To all my gay, lesbian, transgender & bisexual friends out there; this may not change all of the prejudice towards us, but it's definitely a step in the right direction. It's a start, and I do think that things will change for the better. Just keep holding out; I hav

I feel super happy and fuzzy and just... I'm literally crying, you are all so nice, I don't even know what to say. I was feeling pretty depressed and I don't know, just reading all of that made me feel so much happier about everything qwq
Also! I finally realized that chemical engineering is dumb and boring and it's silly to spend four years studying something you hate, SO, I have decided to switch my major to interactive media & game development!! I bought an Intuos5 tablet and everything, this is a really big deal. I'm so excited to get to do art for school stuff - I get to study character design for real now, and learn do do art properly in general. I've been dreaming about studying art forever and I finally realized that there's nothing stopping me, so I'm going for it ;v;
Anyway I should probably stop dumping my happiness on the internet, sorry for the wordvomit journals. I ten

Why is rape so prevalent in yaoi manga?Hi. This isn't anything terribly important. I'm just venting after spending an hour trying to find a decent yaoi to read....Why is rape so prevalent in yaoi manga?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Seriously...I'm sure it's been stated many times, but 90% of all yaoi manga seems to include rape or some manner of non-consensual sex. It baffles me. Not so much that the subject matter exists, but that it's so prevalent. I understand that sometimes reading stories about morbid things can be fascinating, and I understand that for some, there is a certain fetishistic aspect to the concept of non-consensual sex. But...it's like the entire genre of manga just threw all kind of reason or realism out the window. Admittedly, yaoi manga has always been a little out-there, but I'm to a point where I want to bash my head up against a wall sometimes.
In real life, if someone is making a move on someone else, and that person says "no," "wait," or "stop" in any manner of seriousness, that person will stop. Even if they "secretly want it," they're clearly not prepared for wh

Hello every body~:iconcutehiplz:
Today I wanted to feature one of my favourite dA artists: :iconlinnil:
Just take a look around her gallery and profile and you'll see what i mean! Her pictures are just lovely;
They have an absolutly lovely glow to them and are full with vivid colours, amazing sky panoramas and that certain touch of small but nostalgic feeling of fantasy that I feel most things in our time are missing 3: You can spend ages looking at her work and keep finding new small details!
Commissions are open every now and then - they aren't the cheapest but worth every bit of the payment! So if you can, you should try and catch a slot whenever she decides to open them again Or else just go and enjoy her current art :iconblushplz:

WikiLeaks has released documents exposing an extreme internet censorship plan called the Trans-Pacific Partnership. The TPP is a secretive trade agreement negotiated behind closed doors with no democratic process.
We know from the leaked drafts that the TPP will make the Internet more expensive, censored, and policed. It undermines democracy and national sovereignty, and would force SOPA-like Internet censorship on the world. World leaders are meeting next week.
12 minutes on Youtube, TPP shortly explained... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CS-x5SlcPPM#t=268
