Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIIIThe storm has come and Lightning is adaptable!Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The Final Fantasy 25th Anniversary Event is over. The images shown include that of a town, a bar, buildings, streets, customes, monsters, train, and much more. There's one special oil-painting revealed.
There was a trailer shown, but only to the attendees. More information will be leaked on that soon, though, so don't worry!
The third game is titled, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII.

Lightning is the sole character, so the entire game will revolve around her.
The world will end in 13 days until doomsday.
Lightning is stronger than human and more like a God. She'll be stronger than the previous two games.
This will be Lightning's final battle.
There will be plenty of customes customization which affects Lightning's status in battle.

Memorial DayToday, we honor America's real heros.Memorial Day3 years ago in Personal More Like This
For love of country, they accepted death.
True heroism is remarkably sober, very undramatic. It is not the urge to surpass all others at whatever cost, but the urge to serve others at whatever cost.
They served, and died, so that we might live, FREE.
In their honor, we must always cherish and passionately guard the LIBERTY they died defending..
Just a little reminder of what Memorial day ia ll about.
Thank you for your sacrifice....

Lightning Returns Demo Second Hand ImpressionsThe Nico Nico live stream of Square Enix's Lighthing Saga presentation cut off just before the best part: an actual first look at the gameplay in Lightning Returns Final Fantasy XIII.Lightning Returns Demo Second Hand Impressions3 years ago in Personal More Like This
After high level introductions to the game from Motomu Toriyama, Yuji Abe, and Isamu Kamikokuryo, which you can see here (http://andriasang.com/con2jl/ffxiii_lightning_videos/), Square Enix turned off the cameras, told everyone in the audience to do the same, then showed a first trailer. This was followed by a gameplay demonstration.
The trailer provided an introduction to the game's world and its time progression system. One sequence showed a time counter: "00/02:54:23." Famitsu speculates that by clearing quests, you can increase this timer.
Another sequence showed Lightning, dressed in a new outfit, in pursuit of the criminal in a murder incident. She pursues a group of suspicious people, making use of cover actions -- hiding behind walls, for instance. During the presentation, Toriyama explained that

How to avoid a creative block / find your styleI have been thinking about this a lot over the years. And have also been asked these questions quite often. Mostly by beginners and a pro here and thereHow to avoid a creative block / find your style4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Here's what i came up with
If you have a creative block - don't know what to make, have no ideas, are tempted to borrow somebody else's design or redo your own - try this:
- listen to your favorite song and recreate it. translate the sounds, the dynamic, distortions etc. into shapes, colors, textures. listen to the song 50 times if necessary. it can be done and you can do it!
- translate another piece of art into jewelry - go to a museum, browse through photos and paintings on dA, google couture dresses, whatever you like (just not jewelry). find one that you love and make your own smashing piece of jewelry!
- limit yourself with shape or color or materials:
a) pick a shape and make 3 completely different pieces of jewelry based on that shape. use whatever colors and materials you like
b) make 3 completely different pi
I have asexuality: don't assign me yours"The brief relationships I had, once people realizedI have asexuality: don't assign me yours1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
there was no sex, they lost interest fast."
Mark from Asexuals Project
I have a sexuality
Asexuality is a sexual orientation where a person does not experience sexual attraction. The purpose of this journal though is a little broader than asexuality and, as the title has clued you in, is noting that many of us have our own sexuality; don't assign someone else yours.
In January, I posted Asexuality: I am louder than who I say I am, a journal to raise awareness to issues surrounding knowledge and confusion related to asexuality. I brought up asexual stigma, what asexuality is defined as and that misconceptions and not caring to know of a sexual orientation is in and of itself, damaging. The comments reflected their support of awareness and showed a healthy, strong,

International Women's Day (IWD), originally called International Working Women's Day, is marked on March 8 every year.In different regions the focus of the celebrations ranges from general celebration of respect, appreciation and love towards women to a celebration for women's economic, political and social achievements. Started as a Socialist political event, the holiday blended in the culture of many countries, primarily Eastern Europe, Russia, and the former Soviet bloc. In many regions, the day lost its political flavour, and became simply an occasion for men
NaNo is Around the CornerOnce again, we find ourselves getting ready for the insanity that is NaNoWriMo. If you've never heard of it, NaNoWriMo is short for National Novel Writing Month. That means in the span of thirty days, participants will write 50,000 words.NaNo is Around the Corner2 years ago in Literature Features More Like This
1,667 words per day if they're writing every day.
2,273 words per day if they're only writing on weekdays.
6,250 words per day if they're only writing on weekends.
Either way it's a pretty hefty feat, and not something to walk into unprepared. Even if you're a "by the seat of your pants" type of writer.
Which is where planning and plotting come in. Sure, if you're a pantser, you can sit down and bang out a couple chapters, maybe a whole book, but can you do it in a month? Probably not. At least not without a little bit of preparation. For all the pantsers and everyone else, compiled here is a short list of things to keep in mind, ways to prepare, what no
