Cosplay tipsHello and thank you for reading this!!Cosplay tips6 years ago in General Non-Fiction More Like This
Okay Let's start!
1) I've met alot of people, and I would ask hey do you cosplay? And some awsner: No because I am to fat...
Okay NOBODY is to fat to cosplay okay? Everybody is beautifull in his or her own way okay? I know anime-chara's can me intemedating sometimes.. but they are drawn! People make them as beautifull as they but more importantly the audiance want! It's like that in every anime! Girls are most of the time showed as gentle, soft skin and big eyed people. Men are drawn more stronger, speak more and their eyes aren't so big (unless you happen to watch a shojo or yaoi) Villans are most of the time strongly build men or really bitchy women (most of the time they have large breast too) So you will never be as perfect as an Anime chara. You will never be! Nobody will ever be!
Also alot of people who say: I'm to fat to cosplay. Never been to a con before, let me promise you this: NOBODY will get laughted at at a con. Because people who ar
Sit Happens - Chapter 1Rain fell down upon him just like when he'd left Magnolia. Only this time, he didn't return as Gajeel Redfox. The Dragon Slayer had been on a rather difficult mission, one which was borderline S-class. A town had requested a strong mage or a team because they had a 'witch' problem. Or in other words, there was a woman who claimed to be a witch and terrorized the whole town.Sit Happens - Chapter 13 years ago in Romance More Like This
When Gajeel had said woman cornered in a fight, he'd noticed quickly that all her magical power came from a strange amulet. So she was just a wannabe-mage without any magical potential.
He had used his magic to tie her up with a few metal bands. But she whispered a spell before he could take the amulet away. At that time he thought she couldn't finish it. Now, Gajeel knew better.
After he had caught the witch, he took his reward and left without looking back. It was a long trip back to Magnolia since that freaky woman had damaged the railroads between the two towns.

Living in Konohana wasn't so bad even if my crops didn't manage to make as much money as I had originally hoped. My brother Phillip over in Bluebell with his livestock was struggling with the same problems apparently from what he mentioned in the letter I recently received from Dirk.
I scribbled down my reply onto a piece of paper hastily before Dirk arrived this morning so I could give it to him to give to my brother. I was too focused on finishing the letter to care how terrible my writing looked.
It's great to hear that I'm not the only one experiencing problems after only being here for one season. But besides that, Konohana is full of nice people like Reina, Nori, Dirk, Hiro, and Kana. None of them have really caught my interest though besides Reina.

It was going on for the past few weeks. She didn't talk as much, like how she used to. She didn't seem to want to talk to anyone. Not even to Mary. All she's said were simple replies like "yes" and "no".
Ib and Mary arrived at class the moment the bell rang. Class began with the first period, like how every day did. Ib took out her notebook and opened it to a blank page. All the previous pages were filled with words and drawings of things no one would expect Ib to write or draw.

From a petty cat fight with slaps and hair pulling, to an action-packed superhero vs. super villain brawl, action scenes can start anywhere; however writing them effectively is harder than planning on who wins. It isn’t just about writing down who hit who, and if you don’t describe how a character handles the situation, you can accidentally make him or her seem stronger or even weaker than they should be. If the character seems too powerful without explanation, your audience will point the finger and label it a Mary-Sue, and you don’t want that (unless you’re purposefully writing a parody). Action scenes, whether it’s important to the overall plot or not, are an effective tool to establish your characters’ strengths and weaknesses—weakness being just as essential to highlight, if not more so, than strengths, but first, you have to know how to write a fight scene in order to know where to insert thes

I think the best way to describe the proper place of logic is to define it.
Logic is a process of thought. It is using reason to come to a conclusion in a non-random fashion. Logic is reasonable (able to reason).

Two pits of utter darkness.
The only reflected emotions are resentment and bitter sorrow.
'Who is this, that I am starring at?'
You ask yourself,
not recognizing this new figure,
But you know everyone.
Yet as you stare the being in the eyes,
a sudden truth dawns on you:
You know this person.
Their movements, so similar to yours
The same vigilant eyes that you have,
Yet this person is older than you,
their face worn with unseen angers and regrets,
Whereas yours is young and free of earthly worries.
It can't be true,
Yet as you so desperately try to deny,
The truth that is utterly un-deniable,
you know deep inside yourself,
The identity of the person you observe.
It is you.

Several years ago, Knight Captain Cullen pledged to Garrett Hawke that he was in his debt for ridding the ranks of the Templars of demon infestation. Not long after that, Garrett tried to call in that favour by begging that his sister Bethany be allowed to go free instead of being taken to the mage prison known as the Gallows. The Knight Captain refused. Now several years and many angry confrontations later, Garrett has returned to the Gallows to call in the favour.

They sat in his office in the Templar quarters of the Gallows; Garrett Hawke sat opposite him in his fine armour, lanky legs crossed at the ankles
