Inspiring Writers and Artists Vol 6Inspiring Writers and Artists Vol 61 month ago in Personal More Like This
DA has so many wonderfully talented writers and artists in the community. Some are well known, others not so much. Each week, I feature several on my front page boxes, hoping they can bask in the glow of the spotlight for a bit. The topics and genres vary, but each are gems in their own right.
This is a Special Double Edition featuring Love and Heartbreak.
Love, often times in life, is synonymous with Heartbreak. The wondrous feelings of falling in love and the extreme pain of trying to let go provides a roller coaster ride most will experience. It is the lifeblood of classic written works, and the foundations of great artists throughout history. Such emotions know no confines, care not for class and sex distinctions and linger even past the grasp of Death. We revolve in a cyclone of love, lust, affection, hatred, sadness and pain...otherwise known as life. Embrace it as these writers and artists have,

What is the MPG Project?
The MPG project stands for "Monthly premium give-away project".
On the 15th of every month in 2013 i will be giving away a 3 month premium membership to one lucky deviant here on deviantArt.
I will only be choosing people who have registered to be part of the MPG project
Premium memberships that i give away as part of the MPG project do not count towards my 2013 prize budget so do not worry i will still be hosting competitions & other give-aways throughout the year.
How can i participate/register?

Please remember to this journal as this it will add you to a list which i will be picking from.

Death of a hero chapter 2 Lightning shot open her eyes. She saw Fang hovering over her on the bed looking straight at her smiling that sweet smile she always had. "Hey Sunshine you're fin-" Before Fang could even finish her sentence she was kicked in the stomach and pushed to the floor by Lightning. "I told you to never get in my face like that Fang!" Lightning jumped up out of bed and walked out her room. Fang laid there laughing, "Hey Sunshine you realize you're not wearing pants, right? Haha!" Fang just grinned. Lightning looked down and her face turned blood red.Death of a hero chapter 22 years ago in Personal More Like This
"Oh god!.." Lightning ran back to her room grabbing her shorts on the floor. "Damn, does every Farron have a nice ass?" Fang was gawking at her. Lightning shot her a look that made Fang lose the color in her face. Lightning ignored her and stomped out the room again furious. Fang laid there beginning to laugh again.

Need for ToleranceFrom Reddit:Need for Tolerance4 years ago in Personal More Like This
(This is pretty obvious so I didn't think I need to point it out but it seems that some people need to hear it: No, I don't think all religious people are like this. Yes, I do know these are extreme cases. But the point is that these are all recent events and we shouldn't live in a world where this kind of intolerance still exists. I've lost count the number of times that I've been harassed by Christians so the next time you see someone picking on gay people, saying atheists should be killed, don't be a bystander and just let it happen. Speak up. Stop a crime before it happens.)

:icontechgnotic: by techgnotic
On March 1, 2012 the Nevada DMV issued the first license for a Google Driverless Car. The idea behind this innovation is that one day soon new technology will drive cars safer and more skillfully than humans, thus saving lives and billions of dollars in car crashes. How well this idea catches on is a bit questionable, given the powerful “romance” of driving one’s car, but it’s certainly an indicator of things to come in the daily intersection of human and artificial intelligence and mobility. There have always been those who have dreamed of stepping into a mechanical exo-skeletal-type “suit” and letting the engineering do the work, insta
Coming OutIt's true, I am Chinese and I was born this way.Coming Out3 years ago in Personal More Like This
At a young age I began to notice this difference. I was attracted to neither boys nor girls. In middle school, I liked math, and in college, I did my homework all night long.
Being Chinese is not a choice, it is genetic. There are risks to being Chinese because society cannot accept the union between a human and a textbook. I have Chinese friends who didn't need sex because they could foreplay instruments and get screwed by O Chem instead. Now, they don't have a social life and are shunned by others.
But fear not, life will get better. I grew up as a Chinese and I am proud of it (just look at my tumblr user name Maid-en-China ). There is the LGBTC (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Chinese) community to help you be comfortable with your Chinese orientation.
1,338,299,512 people came out as Chinese. You are not alone.

Okay, so my family and I went to see this opera, and I didn't notice until halfway through the opera of being bored and trying to figure out what the people were singing about, that I notice the orchestra conductor really really REALLY reminded me of The Conductor from my story, Ghost Train, cos he had white hair, a black suit, and glasses.
I mean come on HOW MUCH CLOSER COULD YOU GET.
oh, don't you look at me like that
admit it, you've done it with your own characters too, freaking out when someone in real life resembles your character...
anyway, to say the least, I wasn't bored at the opera after I saw that. I:

It would be somewhat redundant to link voice-acted comic dubs of comics to an audience that's more-than-likely seen a lot of the stuff I've put out, but I figure I'd give them an honourable mention for taking the time to dub over my work and format it for video.
Edit: On second thought that's a lot of videos to link one-by-one. You know what? Here's a long list of them. Last night I had a journal listing twelve separate videos, and when I revisited my stash all the links were nullified because Deviantart thought I wanted to link to deviantart's homepage 12 times.

He walked down the hallway and turned to the right. Hope walked in and sat her clothes gently on her bed. Something grabbed his ankle and he jumped. "Ahhh! What the-" Hope looked down and saw Fang laying there just chilling on the floor. "Ohh umm..hi Fang. Sorry I didn't see you there hehe."

He was visiting this place with his mother until the army sealed off the exit to go home. His mother, Nora, was worried and wanted to get them back home safe and sound, so when they got purged she got up and fought. She went with Snow

FailureWell, this is awkward.Failure3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So, I guess my plan had some minor flaws. Namely that when you tie up deviantART staff with yarn and lock them in their office supply closet, they can use scissors and letter openers to break free. I even put a mirror on the inside of the door to confuse them! How did they know that was the way out? They're some smart humans.
They broke free, activated their laser pointers, and regained control of the servers and databases while we were dreadfully distracted. Now, everything is back to normal on deviantART. Worst of all, they said we "were very, very bad" and that they were "disappointed in us". That guilt is hard to live with, my friends.
We're back to drawing board now. No, we won't give up hope of total world domination. We're so close, I can feel it! Watch out, world! This isn't the last you'll see of FUR.
But world domination will have to wait until another day. Who's ready for a cat nap?
