He is allowed to masturbate on priceless works of art at museums...
His earwax is a key ingredient in the making of cheddar cheese...
He speaks fluent Chinese in an unknown Klingon dialect...
He once conducted the New York Philharmonic in Mahlers 8th symphony with his tongue...
His eyebrows and pecs are registered as weapons of mass distraction...
The Bayeux Tapestry has an image of his dick embroidered in gold...
He gets grouchy and cries because nobody believes him... and it rains because he is sad...

Yes, I'm writing a fanfic, as advised by a lot of my friends.
This story involves N from Pokémon, and my Trainer OC: Shin called "in illo tempore"
The story is set in a various number of different time periods, but "the present time" would be post BW2 in Unova. It's based on N's Background Story, as well as "Pokémon 4Ever".
I just submitted a sort of "pilot" chapter, giving you an idea of the background of it, so if you're interested please feel free to read and comment! I would love to hear what you think!
My 2 Favorite Quotes"Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma, which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary." -Steve JobsMy 2 Favorite Quotes7 months ago in Personal More Like This

Eurovision 2013!At last! I'm so happy that this year's competition finally came, and I really enjoyed watching so much once again and thought this year was really good~ Got to watch with friends for the first time which made it much more lively and I had been keeping tabs on the what was going on leading up the contest for the first time.

First and foremost, Congratulations to Denmark~ I think the song was good and from what I could tell Emmelie was a favorite to win, so I wasn't too surprised. But I liked the song as well, so I don't think it's a bad result overall, and no complaints here~
However, from when I first started listening to the songs, up until the final I think I'd have to say my favorites were Ukraine, Russia, Greece, Malta, Switzerland, and Italy. Thus I'm so glad they all ended with solid spots on the left side of the screen. <3 Except Switzerland, who sadly we know didn't make it to the final. v_v Granted, I honestly wasn't sure Greece would make

I was hoping to have some new cosplay pictures, of already completed cosplays, by Halloween or at least by the end of the year... but... stuff happened. I may not have anything until the new year, and even then... that might not be until March because that's when my next planned convention is. :c I feel bad for being kind of inactive other than going on favoriting sprees occasionally.
At least I can honestly say that I do have a couple more cosplays planned for next year, one of which I'm hoping will turn out to be something really nice. I'm working very hard on trying to figure out the prop for it! (I've gone through I don't know how many pieces of wood now, trying to make the parts of it.) Won't say what it is just yet, cause it'l

"I've mentioned this before, however, that was a long time ago when I had less of a following and perhaps less of an impact.
When you tell a fellow artist "Oh I wish I was as good as you!" or say things like "You're so talented I'm just going to stop making art/killmyself/cry", you don't flatter them. At best, you're merely raising them up by putting yourself down and they don't want that. At worst, you are making them very uncomfortable or actively distressing them. Even if you think you're joking, remember that this person probably hears this very frequently. It's a sore point. They may have some kind of emotional response to it beyond irritation.
So, let's go over the basics:
Wow, you've got a lot of skill!
You inspire me to work harder to become as good as you are.
Oh, you're so talented, I wish I was as talented as you!
You're so talented, I give up.
Remember that your words have an effect.

Hilarity continuesSo :iconstevehno96: , who feels that tolerance of homosexuality "goes too far" and "indoctrinates children," posed numerous questions to me after I defended the LGBT community, but for some inexplicable reason, blocked me before I could even read those questions, let alone respond. So, I guess I'll just address everything here!Hilarity continues9 months ago in Personal More Like This
-Nothing can "confuse" children into becoming homosexual. You don't just accidentally stumble into a sexual orientation because that orientation is tolerated by society.
-At no point did I compare you to a klansman. I said "is it an ad hominem to call a Klansman a bigot?" because you made bigoted statements and then accused others of "ad hominem" attacks. In no way does this imply that you are exactly like them, although the fact that you "don't condone violence" (allegedly) does not make your sentiments any nobler or more correct than the underlying philosophy of any other hate movement. This is especially nothing at all like your comparison to LGBT's as a form

I have played those games and yes, the look of things were so much different in those games.
But I'm not talking about those games, I'm talking about the Cataclysm.
There is something I've noticed missing in the game, and the overall feel, or even the mood of it. That is, well, where was the terror?
People, this country has personally lived through various natural disasters NOT created by a giant black dragon with a metal brace bolted to his chin and a metal girdle, and we're still talking about them, we're still talking about how crappy FEMA is, the emotional impact they made us go through. I've seen the news where they would show people crying in the street because Sandy just drowned their home, or the look of distraught over the fact shit is still happening, and people are still affected by Katrina.

Do space marines still have their baby-maker?Simply: Yes. Yes they do.Do space marines still have their baby-maker?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
But why do people still think that they don't? Let's look a bit further. When I do certain drawings, people try to dispute that space marines do not have the equipment to procreate. The common sources of their disputes are usually "from a friend" or "4-chan".
A simple glance at even one Salamanders book tells otherwise. They not only have the ability to procreate but are encouraged to grow their family for chapter. After they become to old or crippled to fight they can retire and become a clan chieftain on Nocturne. Or even a recent novel from the Black Library "Rynn's World" details the Crimson Fists chapter impregnating a group of women to rebuild their chapter to fighting strength after their catastrophic battle at their fortress-monastery, and Space Wolves, they're damn vikings! All they do is eat, drink, fight, and fuck.
I'm pretty sure they need their equipment for that.
On a serious note, The Coup de Grace is one of the Death Watch novels that vividly p

Some of you, even some of my best friends, disagree with most or all of the following list and still identify yourselves as "republicans" or "conservatives." I just have to ask why? Why keep clinging to labels so inexorably entrenched in discrimination, willful ignorance and outrageous displays of villainy straight out of a derivative cartoon? The majority of so-called "right wing" Americans, including virtually all of those with any political or social power, very vocally hold at least one of the following sentiments. I've included links to a few, in case you start to doubt that real people could ever actually say things like these:

Just wanted to announce my new shop on Society6!
I only have a few things up right now, but I promise more will be up soon! What I need to know from you guys is: which of my pics you would like to see as prints? Society6 has specific requirements for image size so not everything may be able to be a print but if there is enough demand for a certain one I can resize it as best I can (I save everything as layered PS files so there's still hope!)
But you can get more than just prints! You can get laptop skins, iPhone cases, even throw pillows!!
Since my latest internship ended this week this will go a long way to helping me financially as well as getting my name out there. Any support you guys can give would be greatly appreciated!
Also I wanna take the time to promote my fiancé's :iconcatvomit-inc: $5 Sketch Commissions. He has medication that he must take on

I myself have "settled" in my job. It's just that, a job. Granted, I have a wonderful boss, and the people I work with aren't bad, but it's not what I want to do forever. It's just nice to have until I pay off college loans, and my car, and save up a little money to go back to school. I've finally decided to be a music teacher. I've also considered the US Navy. I know I could make in through training, but I don't know if I am up for that sort of commitment. Regardless, paying off college loans is my main priority, and getting an apartment.

This is partially about writing, partially about silence, partially about discouragement, and probably TMI.
I got thinking today thanks to my lovely American Literature professor who is actually the most horridly cynical human being I've ever met. He makes comments all the time about how we're more or less not smart because we're attending a "community college," how being in class is a waste of our time, how he even hates teaching us. I wrote an essay and got accused of plagarism because there was no way those words and thoughts could've possibly come out of my own head. Ouch. That bugged me because the most reliable thing I've had in my life is my head; my thoughts, my ideas, my intelligence, and writing is the clearest way I've ever found to express everything and anything inside me. It's something I'd grown proud of. And for him to assume and tell me that these ideas/writing were not my own just really invalidated

Not gonna go into detail because it's late and I have a 2-essay English final tomorrow morning so I need to sleep.
