Welcome Catalina!My dear friends,Welcome Catalina!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Let me introduce you to Catalina:
This is life's second greatest gift to me; the first being my son Ben.
She was born quite ahead of schedule this past Sunday 5th, surprising us all with a 10-day skip from her scheduled birth date this Wednesday 15th. Apparently, she couldn't wait to meet everyone outside
Both she and her mom are doing fantastic and giving dad the broadest smile he's had in years
I'll see you all soon in-between diapers and bottles!
Unfolding of the wings“I have come to accept the feeling of not knowing where I am going. And I have trained myself to love it. Because it is only when we are suspended in mid-air with no landing in sight, that we force our wings to unravel and alas begin our flight. And as we fly, we still may not know where we are going to. But the miracle is in the unfolding of the wings. You may not know where you're going, but you know that so long as you spread your wings, the winds will carry you.”Unfolding of the wings1 year ago in Personal More Like This

The changing of the leaves in the autumn. To be able to appreciate beautiful music.

Only part of the movie takes place at Christmas, but its a crucial part. And the spirit of Christmas permeates the whole movie. And the kindergartener's nativity play is priceless.

It's pretty obvious when you look at my drawings, too. Back during the heyday of the Fatales I used to draw all the time, but now I don't pick up a pencil for weeks at a time and my skills (already tentative) have taken a hit. Still, I do sketch character concepts, and I hope to upload some in the near future. And if worst comes to worst, I can always spam y'all with fiction.

Can I Make my Own Derg?Can I Make my Own Derg?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
A LOT of people have been asking me questions like this, so lets clear this up now.
YOU CAN MAKE YOUR OWN DERG
but their are some things I want to go over ABOUT making yourself one of these lovely creatures
You SHOULD read the Derg Guidelines First before you make a derg, it will help you figure out the design C:
All Dergs made do NOT have to be given credit to me, but I ask that the Derg Species is given credit to me
You can make your OWN adoptables to sell here, and on other adoptable groups
Derg as a species (adoptables and such) can only be sold for at most, 80 points.
I personally ENCOURAGE you to make a derg OC and post it in the group, the more dergs the merrier C:
Dergs are no particular color. They have some other distinct qualities, but you can have any color scheme you desire

Rant: Harry Potter controversiesSorry guys, mammoth rant coming up! I apologise in advance.Rant: Harry Potter controversies3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Firstly, this is kind of a response to someone on Tumblr who asserted that fans who do not like George/Angelina dislike it due to having racist inclinations, whether conscious or subconscious. Now it has to be said that there IS a lot of horrible Angelina bashing going around and quite honestly some of it is racist, with some people admitting bluntly that they dislike the character because she is black. Nevertheless, accusing all fans who dislike Angelina or Angelina/Fred/George as being racist is, to me, a serious low. To demand that fans must support a pairing because it is mixed race isn't helping matters. In fact, coming from mixed race parents myself, I find that sort of pitying attitude to be racist and horribly patronising.
I believe that we should have more mixed relationships in popular media. It's been a controversial subject for far too long and we absolutely need to tackle it. But at the same time I don't think
An open letter to my original charactersMemo from: Central 2138 Brain AreaAn open letter to my original characters3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Memo to: Maw, Mr. Fenix, Anhurmose, Rosa Hin and Erik Baker, Annie Gorshin, et al
Subject: Re: Recent misbehavior
First off, let me reiterate the fact that you are all valued. You're complex (to 2138, anyway), endearing (also to 2138), bizarre (okay, I think that one's universal) and have provided multiple and long-running sources of inspiration for both writing and drawing. However, we need to discuss your recent out-of-control behavior.
The management staff of my brain appreciates that all of you have your own particular special needs. Some of you are legally undead, some of you are mutants, and all of you have severe issues of one form or another; we have all made efforts to accommodate your particular needs, especially in light of current developments. While you are valued characters and continue to inspire the staff of 2138's brain daily, you have been engaging in prohibited behavior quite frequently, and it appears to be time to draw the line. E

You DON'T just sip Rum, OK?! Most of you don't even know the taste of Rum! I do, and as much as I enjoy drinking it, it's one of the beverages that tastes bloody AWFUL! Even most grown men have their problems drinking it because of the bitter and almost burning taste, and stupid little girls like YOU would spit it out fully after taking the very first sip.
Even when mixed with pleasant-tasting beverages like Coke, it still tastes sort of ho

I'm sure some of you are wondering what this group is all about.
And I'm sure one of you are wondering why it's cut out from the other Batman OCs groups.
We didn't want to be another "Batman OC" group.
That's the thing. The characters in here are extensively worked on and STILL ARE, and some people like myself and a handful of other people I know enjoy looking at OCs that aren't the "norm".
This is a hobby group for people who ENJOY expanding on their OCs in the Batman fandom. By any means, we're not out in the intent to make them canon or treat them like they are.
And by the norm, most OCs that are written, while not poorly done, could be expanded on and perhaps put more thought into.
The characters in this group have personality. They aren't so flat sided. Like for example, Harley Quinn is spunky and perhaps a bit crazy. Ivy can be regarded as a woman who needs no man and perhaps a bit feminist. Most of the people whose OCs are i

It seems there is a most frightening psychological conundrum when considering the concept of demonic possession even the most remote possibility of reality upon our earthly plane is the notion that just believing it may be true could very likely be the spark needed for the Demon to discover, seek out, and ultimately inhabit its next vessel of evil: You.

Winter has always been a season which people either love or hate. No matter where we live we always have some strong emotions connected with it and a lot of them revolve around... snow!
Some love it, some hate it; some play with it creating snowmen, others do everything to get rid of it; some see it all year long and some can only dream about it.
Because of how many different emotions we connect with snow and how many uses it has it's a perfect theme for the promised fan art contest!
Your task is to create a fan art or fan fiction that will present your favourite character(s) interacting with snow.
Every entry should revolve around the "snow" theme. The more original you are, the better!
The work must be a Fan Art / Fan Fiction and it should be submitted into the Fan Art
