ATalkHappy Easter everyone! I feel like... I just want to talk today. Because I think there's things I've learned and feel and think that sometimes I just want to say.ATalk3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Let's start with stories.
What I find great about any form of storytelling is how honest it is. There is no other form of shared knowledge that can teach us how to live our lives better. None. That being said, we see stories in everything. We look at a tree with a fence grown into it, and think of when the fence must have been built, who may have built it, etc. We see a couple arguing on the street and ponder as to what could have gotten them to this point. We hear a snapping twig in the woods, and plan our escape route from whatever magnificent beast lurks in the brush! As human beings, we LOVE stories. But why?
We love stories because they teach us how to live. Think about any good movie, book, or other story. It should have moved you in some way. Some stories teach us how to deal with the intense hardship
Mega Steelix/ Mega Glalie + How to get ORAS demoHeya.Mega Steelix/ Mega Glalie + How to get ORAS demo7 months ago in Personal More Like This
The demos are out in Japan and tomorrow in several countries around the world and revealed two new mega evos already. The rumor of Mega Lunatone / Mega Solrock was proved false, because the new megas are for Steelix and Glalie.
Mega Glalie is fugly as heck but Mega Steelix has the interesting idea to part of it body actually turning into crystals. Well it needed a power boost indeed.
Btw, there's no trainer customization in ORAS. Well something had to be XY exclusive. You guys are stuck with red pants and white hats :3
As the demo is available starting tomorrow in many places, you may check where to get it by yourself by clicking this list written by :iconmarriland: -> http://www.marriland.com/news/5176-pokemon-omega-ruby-alpha-sapphire-demo-information

"I wish I were dead."
"I welcome death."
I have said those things.
Those words never changed anything apparently.
I feel like after the death of Cat, everyone has become suicidal all of the sudden..
I dont understand...
Listen to me,, Just for once Please.
Do NOT kill yourself.
I friend told me it wont solve anything. It wont.
I know I've said this so many times,, But I have wished I were dead,, so
But I realize, people care about me,,
I have lost so many friends during the year,, my life was coming closer to an end.
Do not kill yourself. I want you to close your eyes, think about the people you'll leave behind,
how they'll feel when you're gone,
who you have hurt, who you left.
DO NOT HARM YOURSELF.
You'll bring tears to your family's eyes.
Think about your future, think about everything ahead of you.
You got so much to live for. Don't do this.
Who will love you then? When you're gone.
You could grow up, get a car, a job, a family.
You could do an

Going Dark (FINAL update)EDIT: EDIT:Going Dark (FINAL update)2 months ago in Personal More Like This
For the youtube community that follows my DA and has been involved in the yellow situation...
The matter has been taken care of. I'll make my return soon...
Just to calm people down (as I've been talking to a few this morning), when I do come back, my artwork/animations will come back as well. I know this is all very dramatic, and everyone wants to know the circumstances as to why I'm doing this. Yesterday was a very dramatic day, and a lot of stuff went down. I don't regret my decision though some may not agree with it.
This is my way of removing myself from the community at the moment. I don't want to feel guilty, sad, or frustrated anymore. In due time, I'll return when this blows over, but for now, I'll see you guys on a later date.
P.S. If you guys can, please stop asking about what happened. I'd appreciate it
Hey, a big fiasco has happened in the past 24 hours, and I'm withdrawing myself from the community for

After years of abuse and rejection from strict Christian parents, an Ohio transgender teen commits suicide by stepping in front of a moving tractor trailer truck.
Leelah Alcorn, also known as Joshua Alcorn, was struck and killed by a passing semitrailer on southbound Interstate 71 in Union Township Sunday morning. The tragic event appears not to have been an accident, but a suicide.

Read These Nuzlockes!Hey folks! So in preparation for Pokémon Emerald: Wren-Mode, I've been rereading a whole bunch of Nuzlockes (as well as keeping eyes on the various Nuzlocke Groups to see if anything pops up), and figured: "Hey, what not give y'all links to 'em as you may not have read them, or forgotten about them and maybe wanted to reread them just like I did."

An artwork of your animal friend
By an animal friend, I mean your own pet, but it can also be your family pet, family dog for example, as well as some animal you're closely connected to and love very much, like that one special horse of your granddad's you made friends with and love to ride.
Does my animal friend have to be..uhm...alive?
No. I even encourage making an artwork of an animal you loved very much, but unfortunately is no longer with you, for whichever reason. Always wanted to draw your dog you spent so many wonderful years together? Now's a good time.

Saturday mornings are super again. Harkening back to the glory days the 1970s and '80s when kids got their weekends going with Super Friends and School House Rock, Cartoon Network is launching DC Nation, a programming block that showcases the heroes of the DC Comics library. Anchoring the hour will be the CGI show Green Lantern: The Animated Series (10am/9c) and the continuation of the first season of Young Justice (10:30am/9:30c). Scattered Throughout the hour are animated shorts and interstitials with news and vignettes from around the DC universe.
Though some of the shorts feature big names like Superman and Batman, many will put the spotlight on "characters we've always wanted to see animated, but that might not be able to support a whole series," says Peter Giardi, senior vice president at Warner Bros. Animation, which is coordinating the block. Among the second-tier characters featured are Black Lightenin

It was a crispy morning when i woke to the smell of fresh eggs sizzling in my grandfather's frying pot. I bounced down the corridors and into the kitchen, where I saw my mother angrilly shuffling about the room, her eyes red with fury. I immediatly recognised this as a symptom of her consistant mariwana use, and began scolding her when she swiftly interrupted, saying that her frustration lyed elsewhere. She explained the need for cornmeal to complete her famous "Lordy Shaws Lip-Smackin' Meatloaf and Egg Omlette" recipe. She was engourged with distemperment as she displayed that the eggs were already sizzled and that she needed the cornmeal immediatly!
I seized this opertunity to help my mother in more ways than one. I
