UPDATE 5: All 30 slots are filled now, but the story still hasn't ended! If you want to help finish up, we'll be adding slots one at a time.
UPDATE 4: Slot 30 is open once more! Even if you have contributed before, you can still sign up for slot 30! Get it before it's taken, everypony!
UPDATE 3: Since some writers have been taking a while to write their sentence, a new rule has been issued: after 3 days, you will be sent a note saying to write your sentence by the next day or you will be removed from the slots.
UPDATE 2: We filled up our minimum goal of 30 slots! Before we can accept any more writers, we have to let our slot people make their sentences. We'll update when slots are open again!
UPDATE: Wow, what a hit this project has been! We've gotten an amazing turnout, and the slots are getting filled quicker than
Don't underprice your commissions! READ THIS!!So, I absolutely hate the point system.

SO! Yeah. Like, this is important.

Theme of the Week: DanceCome to the masquerade ball. Where the ladies wear their shining dresses and the shy little masks. Where the gentlemen wear their suits and their grand masks. Watch the ballerinas on the stage. Tango with your dear partner according to the soft romantic music.Theme of the Week: Dance1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Or come to the rave. Go buy some glow sticks and light up the night with loud music and ever-changing lights. Breakdance on the concrete floor! Warning: not for those prone to seizures.
Or come to the rock concert. Where the dancing is purely running in circles and singing along with intense lyrics.
Or simply stay at home and do aerobic dancing to work off a whole week's worth of stress.
The list of parties goes on. Dance away the night!
Whatever the situation. Whatever the mood. Perhaps a little dance can brighten your day.
And let the subject of dancing bring us our inspiration. Gracefully or crazily.
Let your pen dance along your paper. Let your fingers dance along your keyboard.
A few words about failureYou must have a dream... don't we all? Dreaming about it night and day, imagining how it would feel, how it would be when it all comes true. And then you might feel you'll never fail. It's your destiny to become what you wish for, fate must be with you and there's no way you can fail.A few words about failure3 months ago in Personal More Like This
What if... you'll fail?
"Too often, the only escape is sleep" - or as I would say: too often, the only escape turns out to be nothing more but a dream in your sleep.
Do you feel imprisoned? I guess you've been plotting your escape for a very long time. Did it turn out well? Did you succeed? Or some kind of unexpected enormous force came out of nowhere and deviated you from the chosen path in such a way you could never get back on track - not without consequences.
If you're still on your way, still working hard, please know this: there will be something strong that will fight you without even realising it.

Life has a ton of things that are good and bad, yet we tend to focus on the negative things.
So whether it being a load of exams, a hurt friend, financial problems, internal anxiety, depression, broken car, home invasions, fandom drama, or anything in particular that's bothering you.
Just know that there is a way to find purpose, even with the various circumstances.
For me, i'm just trying to enjoy and live to it's potential.

My Roleplay Rules and ExpectationsI love to roleplay. I've been hooked on it for almost 5 years. I'm always open for a roleplay. It depends if I am free or not. I like late night role players, and I live in the east. So for me, it's Eastern time.My Roleplay Rules and Expectations7 months ago in Personal More Like This
I love a good romance in my roleplays. I can't stand any type of fetish. (Though, I do have one somewhat. If you would call it a fetish.) I will only play a guy if you do the same if you are a female. I can't stand "you play the guy and I play the girl."
I like it when someone has good grammar, and uses paragraph style. I don't like super long paragraphs, and I can't stand one liners. I know, I get writers block too, but try not to let it happen all the time.
I am comfortable with 18+ things such as violence, swearing, sex scenes, ect... I don't like to roleplay with someone who is extremely picky about a roleplay, and I can't stand Mary sues, or god mode.
I do accept certain originals, but most of mine are from fandoms. NO ANIME. I'm sick of saying it over and over agai
OKAY so here's where I'm at:I have basically become too ill to look after myself for a bit. So Granny, (probably the best person in the world,) has agreed to let me stay with her for a couple of years, without the pressure of paying a sum of rent high enough to require me to draw until I literally die.OKAY so here's where I'm at:6 months ago in Personal More Like This
This is good news. Because now it means Imma play all those steam games that I bought to play 'when I had some spare time'. Also Granny has basically the same taste in everything that I do, and I'm going to show her all the games. (Granny is pretty legit. You stick a controller in her hand, and she just... gets it.) Oh my. Wait 'till Granny sees Portal 2. And Journey. And I reckon she'll enjoy Shelter.
I'm glad I have support of family and friends during this time. It means I get to rest, and heal, which I haven't had the opportunity to do for... basically most of my life.

For those who care to read thisI don't want this journal to be long, i just need sone advice.For those who care to read this6 months ago in Personal More Like This
So i've been depressed for a while now, and i just want to know how you guys cope with it if you have/are going through it yourselves.
I get anxious, lose my appetite, and just don't find any real happiness in life. And don't worry im not like suicidal, i just stop and think, what's really there to life? Im sure you probably have had these thoughts before, i know i have but i just shrug them off. But now they have been in my head for a while, i guess cus my life is pretty bland. Home, school, homework, that's like my entire day, everyday and im just tired of the same old thing -_-
So i just want to hear some advice to how to get out of this little mindset ive been in or at least escape it temporarily, thanks!
The loneliest job in the worldby Tony HoaglandThe loneliest job in the world1 month ago in Personal More Like This
As soon as you begin to ask the question, Who loves me?
you are completely screwed, because
the next question is How Much?
and then it is hundreds of hours later,
and you are still hunched over
your flowcharts and abacus,
trying to decide if you have gotten enough.
This is the loneliest job in the world:
to be an accountant of the heart.
It is late at night. You are by yourself,
and all around you, you can hear
the sounds of people moving
in and out of love,
pushing the turnstiles, putting
their coins in the slots,
paying the price which is asked,
which constantly changes.
No one knows why.

You're too fat? You have beautiful hair and you love to sing.
You're too stupid? You're hilariously funny and a great cook.
You have no social life? You're creative and love reading.
If you are able to spend time and energy thinking about the things you dislike about yourself, than you are able to spend time and energy pointing out the things you like. If you're unable to find anything you like about yourself, keep trying and look harder, it's in there.
Search for something you like about yourself, not what other people think and do not exclude something you enjoy simply because other people think it's stupid or weird. Their opinions don't matter, yours does.

Does that make whatever they say a Fact? No
Do you have to care or listen to what they say? Hell no, do what you want.
If someone says you're fat, that does NOT make you fat.
If someone says you're ugly, that does NOT make you ugly.
If someone says you're stupid, that does NOT make you stupid.
No matter what anyone says, no matter what their opinion may be, when it comes to yourself, the only opinion that should matter to you is your own. (unless you have a shitty opinion of yourself, in which case the only opinion that matters is mine and you're a beautiful and amazing person, fact.)
I seriously cannot tell you guys how many times I've seen "fat, ugly, gross, ect" words used and directed at people who I genuinely thought were gorgeous on the outside and amazing inside.
Everyone has an opinion. And yes, if they don't have anything nice to say then they shouldn't say anything at all, however the

Sharks are more important than you thinkThe Earth is an ocean planet. 99% of all living space on it is water, and 80% of all species live in the ocean. We know from decades of careful research that the oceans have shaped this world - whenever something happened to them, whenever life in the oceans changed, life on Earth changed as a whole. We humans are a wave of extinction, a new event that is suddenly rippling across the tree of life. And as we interfere so strongly with this complex system of interdependence that has taken its shape in millions of years, we change the only world, the only home, our species has ever known.Sharks are more important than you think3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Sharks have lived in the oceans for over 400 million years, since before the dinosaurs evolved. As apex predators, they are critically important to the food chain in the ocean and have significantly shaped the world through time. Sharks are intelligent, have long and short term memory and the ability to learn. And they are afraid of us. Most sharks won't come near us if we are not perfectly calm, because

Comments RantSo I don't know who all you guys follow on DA, some of you may have seen it, but a fellow Yogscast fan artist made a Journal post tonight pointing out that some people were telling her in comments and/or notes that the way she draws certain characters is wrong basically.Comments Rant1 year ago in Personal More Like This
This shocked me at first, that people would actually be that rude and selfishly picky. Then I realized, I've actually gotten some of those comments as well, and I felt the need to rant.
Let me make something very clear.
I don't care how much you like a character.
I don't care how devoted you are to a series.
I don't care how much lore you have memorized.
I don't care if you have a characters original canon look memorized.
It is NEVER okay to tell an artist that their own interpretation of a character is wrong and then to inform them of what they need to change.
Do you comment on a fanfiction and tell the writer they're wrong because they wrote their story in a way you wouldn't have? No? Then don't tell an artist they'r
