ADL: Kettaro's Screamfest"Coke is the best!"ADL: Kettaro's Screamfest3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
"I vote PEPSEH!"
Mucchi sighed as he watched his two friends a dog named Kogeinu and a sheep fan called Rumdarjun fight over whether Coke or Pepsi was better. Mucchi knew better to keep neutral as he watched Kogeinu and Rumdarjun bicker.
Mucchi was at Kettaro's house. For what reason, he had no idea. The other had decided to host a party and practically everyone decided to tag along. Mi-chan was helping himself to the food, Clear and Nero were talking with Dasoku and Ren, Wotamin and KuroNeko were chatting away with Vip Tenchou.
"They are lucky ShounenT isn't here " Mucchi muttered.
"Hey, Muttan!" Remyu called.
Mucchi looked up. "What is it?"
"We need your help! A competition is starting!" Remyu enthused.
"Wha " Before Mucchi could protest, Remyu hauled him over to the other end of the huge yard, where most of the guests were.
"Ahhh Ahhhhhhhh!!! *COUGH*" Ten was breathing heavily as his voice began getting strained and cracked. He raised a hand. "I
When you're gayWhen you're gay3 years ago in Emotional More Like This
I posted this on my livejournal and decided to post it here for everyone to understand. I won't keep this up probably. Just a note I wanted people to read.
Yes, I'm gay
I am pretty sure no one reads these stupid journals, but now I'm not so sure. See, I like to rant a lot and apparently that gets me into trouble. I dunno who all is reading this, but I am going to make something very clear in these journals. If you don't like me then don't read these. Same thing goes for those who want to send me to hell. It offends me like NO OTHER when people judge me. I've decided to post this journal as a way for people to get inside my head. I'll likely keep this journal active for a week before I remove it, so read it now before it is gone.
First off, I want people to try and understand me. I am lesbian. Okay, I get that makes a lot of you ma

Lilith My QueenLilith My Queen:Lilith My Queen3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
In darkness she called me
My life she did bind.
Lilith my Queen;
My soul was consigned...
By blood we were sealed
By hatred defined!
We killed in her name
For this angel of mine.
Her wings were the darkest
They bore chains of steel.
Through darkness my wounds
And my scars she did heal.
In nightmares she whispered
They broke me in time.
She tore out my heart
And ripped out my mind.
All through the black winter
This one frosted night
The heavens did weep
For the death of the light...

How to REALLY become PopularHow to REALLY become Popular4 years ago in Academic Essays More Like This
Is it really worth it chasing after that meaningless "page view" count? Or is page views a synonym for popularity? Sure, we all want more watchers, but how much more? If you type the word "popular" in the DA search engine you will get a long stream of deviations bashing popular artworks and artists. I mean hey! It's easy to say "My art is 10 times better then that crap on the front page!", and it's okay to say that funnily enough, because art is subjective. But what's not okay to say is "I deserve to be more popular then them it's unfair!" the reason why they are more popular than you is because they know the "method".
Everybody's method is different find yours
What is this "method?" you must be thinking. The method is essentially their own way to gain awareness, sounds silly doesn't it? Most of the biggest artists on DA never asked to be popular; it just came to them naturally. Yet regardless, subconsciously they knew which deviations to upload would make a big hit.
2nd person fiction and YouYou like fiction written in the second person. You may not admit it to yourself, but deep down, you really do. It teases you with its confrontational otherness, its flamboyantly displayed post-modernism, its teeth.2nd person fiction and You4 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
Do not look at its teeth. You do not want to look at its teeth.
Fiction written in the second person and you have a long history of denial. At first, you were sure it couldn't be done. Then it was done, and it was done to you, and you liked it, too, but it was only the one time and you were kind of drunk. It was an experiment, and it was interesting as an experiment, but that was all it was.
Only, of course, it wasn't.
Fiction written in the second person has invaded your dreams, and what's worse, your sexual fantasies. You'd be picturing a luscious blonde, rubbing her rubbables, yearning for your touch, when suddenly a voice would pop into your head, calmly narrating what you were doing: "You are picturing a luscious blonde," the voice would say, "rubbing her rubbables.

that sometimes we love something
we forever want it embedded
And even if the colors fade,
and the lines become wrinkled
Or even if we form a strong abhor;

For like the ink it's written in,
true love lasts
Story Writing TipsTip #1: Write about what you know. If you're writing a love story in which the main female character is dumped by her boyfriend, think about what you have been through in your own personal experience, and think about how she might react. Does your character have a strong personality? Are they normally quite likeable? Do they have a weak personality, and they let people push them around? Or do they have a personality that is mysterious, and unpredictable? Once you have established a main character, only you, the author, can predict how they will react to a certain problem.Story Writing Tips7 years ago in General Non-Fiction More Like This
Tip #2: When beginning a story, and a chapter, it often helps to start the story/chapter in the middle of an action, because then you immediately grasp the reader's attention.
Tip #3: When writing a summary, you might want to include a very short excerpt from your story. That way, you get the reader intrigued. In a real, published book, the first thing that a person sees is the cover, second the title, and third, the

Character Development QuizYour character is in a stable relationship of some description (if they are not in a relationship in the canon of your story, assume this hypothetically). Your character discovers that their partner has been cheating on them. How does your character react?Character Development Quiz4 years ago in Editorial More Like This
(Ideas: Does your character panic or assume it was a misunderstanding? Will their feelings change as they "cool off"? Will they storm out without a backwards glance or seek resolution? Would they forgive their partner?)
Does your character hold any religious or otherwise existential beliefs? If so, what inspired them to hold those beliefs? If not, why?
If you asked your character what his/her favorite color is, what would they say? Is there any reason they resonate with that particular color?
Does your character have any deep-seated fears? Do these fears motivate how your character acts in his/her day-to-day life?
(Ideas: Mentioning phobias are OK, but think beyond phobias. Does your character wo
Adopted By The Biersack's Part One"God, get me out of this whorehouse!" I screamed. It was 7:30 in the morning, and school started in half an hour. Some of the younger girls kept banging on my door, trying to piss me off. I had gotten on my Escape The Fate shirt, and I was trying to finish getting dressed. I slipped on my orange pants and pounded on the door harder.Adopted By The Biersack's Part One3 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
"Pound on this door one more time, and I'll come out there and punch you in the baby maker!" I yelled. I walked over to my dresser, put my Ipod in my tiny speakers, and started playing New Religion. I could hear them running away, and some of them were screaming.
They thought I conducted witchcraft to that song.

Imagine you've found a person that completes you, that makes you feel happiness that you never thought possible.
They make you laugh.
They wipe away your tears.
You melt in their embrace.
Their kisses leave you breathless.
Their body, mind and soul, fit yours in what can only be described as perfection. To say you're in love with this person, is almost an understatement. You adore them. Everything they are, and everything they do.
Finally, the time in your lives comes when you want to be bonded together in a meaningful, significant way. You want to get married.
Now imagine, that you encounter a problem.
Nothing is wrong with the rings, a sparkling matching set. It's not that you're not in love, you're love is pure and unhindered. The problem, is an outdated law. One that needed to be challenged years ago.

It was in that moment that the bride whispered softly,
"Um hey, um, I wonder if

All of our wishes will come true in such a place
and guess what I have found a way to travel there!"
Leaving only those words the young bride disappeared
to find a way to make the present last eternally...
