Coming across a deserted house, whether hidden by the distance of a rolling countryside or by the shadows of adjoining city ghetto dwellings, is like stumbling across an unnoticed, unburied corpse. It is obviously dead now, but once it was full of lives. Coming across a haunted house is different. Deserted or still occupied, it is a place where lives, unsatisfied, have refused to move on into a full death. The houses reflect their tenants. They are living dead structures, refusing to return to dust.
“What terrified me will terrify others; and I need only describe the spectre which had haunted my midnight pillow”
– Mary Shelley

Metrocon and "Gay Panic"-------Metrocon-------Metrocon and "Gay Panic"3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So! The ball is really rolling for Metrocon now. I'm starting to get panel times together provisionally, as well as our panel content.
For those of you attending Metrocon... I always find that I rush to the evening parties, and never end up staying long. So, I was considering putting in one "late" panel at 9-10pm on Friday night, perhaps to screen videos that we haven't shown before, and generally have a bit of a laugh. Would people be interested in this, or do you prefer to go to the parties?
Let me know!
-------The 'Gay Panic' Defence-------
This was suggested as a discussion topic by VanillaAutumn, and I felt it was one that could do with being publicised.
A loophole in Queensland [Australia] law allows people accused of murder to defend themselves in court by claiming "gay panic" -- that is, if someone who they think is gay "comes onto" th

On The Subject of LabelsOne of the recurring comments given in my previous journal was "Why do we need to label ourselves at all?", or words to that effect. There are many of you who believe NO-ONE needs a label.On The Subject of Labels3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I both agree and disagree.
I agree, because I think you're right that we don't need to define to ourselves what we are by putting a label on it. I shouldn't say to myself "I'm gay. Therefore, I only am attracted to women." I think that if, in your head, you have a defined, labelled view of what you are, you start conforming yourself around that label. I'm sure many of you have heard stories of men and women who came out, then later admitted to feeling pressured into staying gay because they'd defined themselves as such to so many people. Conforming yourself around a social definition like that cannot be healthy.
But at the same time, I disagree against the idea that we don't need labels in this world at all. We do need them... we just don't need to place extensive mean

Alien Isolation Q&A with bradwright
Brad Wright, longtime deviant in the dA community, steps into the shoes (space boots) of Giger and Moebius as a concept designer for the Alien Isolation videogame. The game reportedly marks a return to the terror of the original “Alien” film in which scaring the audience to death was the goal, rather than the uncorking escalating levels of defensive firepower that defined the sequels.
Collection: StarsCollection: Stars3 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Photographs and paintings of stars occupy that category of things you know are so, and yet it’s not quite possible to believe. One example is radio or television “signals” traveling in “waves” through the air, only to be reassembled for your listening or viewing pleasure in your living room radio or TV. Looking at clusters of stars lighting up the night sky like massive storm clouds, it’s impossible to think of those stars, those points of light, as separate massive burning suns, even though I know it’s so. Sometimes the most powerful magic requires no deception at all. The natural universe is more mystifying in its sheer
Devious Journal EntryI just suffered shock at advice I saw being given to a convention goer of how to keep her energy levels up while at a convention...Devious Journal Entry3 years ago in Personal More Like This
- Hold soda in your mouth for a few seconds before swallowing it, as your mouth absorbs the sugars quicker
- Drink OJ with sugar added to it
- Honey sticks
Basically, the advice given was "SUGAR, AND LOTS OF IT!"
I don't know what people are taught about health in the USA, but clearly it's VERY different to the UK. People, PLEASE don't live on sugar at a convention! Not only is it bad for your teeth, but bad for your health, and it's NOT the best source of energy there is!
Eating regularly and healthily, especially wholemeals, will provide you with a much healthier and long-lasting source of energy. Sure, you may get a brief rush from a Red Bull, but you'll have a crash as well. I know none of us take the best care of ourselves at cons, but at least TRY to get in a decent breakfast, lunch and dinner. And drink plenty of water!!
And definitely don't ad

Sexuality Polls?WARNING FOR THE RAMBLINGS OF A TIRED, ILL PERSON!Sexuality Polls?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So, you may wonder why I made the polls about sexuality.
From the age of 12 to 16, I was straight. I was always straight, and always going to be straight. I only dated guys, and that was the way it was stuck in my head.
Then at 16, things started changing. I was in a relationship, but I also found myself attracted to girls. In appearance, especially, I found females more appealing than males.
At around 18 or 19, my attraction to men started fading entirely, replaced purely by an interest in women.
At 20, I ended my straight relationship to be with Jenn. By this point, I only found women attractive.
Now I'm 24, and once again, I'm on the fence. I find both men and women attractive visually, but I'm not SEXUALLY attracted to any of them. The only person I honestly find sexually attractive is Jenn. She's female, so I suppose that labels me as a lesbian, as I am quite literally only attracted to females.
But what if, in another world, Jenn

Thank you, Mr PresidentSome people complain about Obama because he hasn't fixed the economy.Thank you, Mr President3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Some people complain about him because he hasn't kept every single one of his election pledges.
People dislike the man for a variety of reasons.
I think he's amazing.
Because he is pro-Equal Rights.
This journal is for nothing more than to say how happy I am that, finally, a president of the United States has boldly stepped forward and declared his support for same-sex marriages. He could have easily avoided this issue until after the election race was over, but he made the decision to be up-front and honest in advance. I respect that in a politician so very, very much.
So thank you, Obama. I sincerely hope people listen to you, and learn what it truly means to treat your fellow man as "equal".

with a tongue rough as flint,

I have seen the future of horror, his name is Clive Barker.

This website is a painful reminder of my disgusting personality, warped mentality and ideologies, and poor sense of humor as a preteen until my early years of high school. Meaning many of my old deviations are being marked for deletion.
I'm a bitter old teenager now that gags at the content and conduct of 89% of this website and I would hope you understand my lack of communication and enthusiasm on this site is not bitterness towards any of you, I've just grown up a little and moved on as a sullen mass of exasperation that wants to disown her past as an annoying piece of preteen shit on YouTube and deviantART. I'd prefer being an annoying piece of teenage shit elsewhere thank you.
Have a great 2013 everyone.
