"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.

When you're gayWhen you're gay4 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

How to REALLY become PopularHow to REALLY become Popular5 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.
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...

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.

Last I checked I'm not a bundle bunch of twigs nor am I a lesbian.
Last I checked I'm a human being, who happens to be pansexual.
Last I checked sexuality was a born fact, not an insult.
Apparently the way I look either makes me transgendered or a full out dyke.
Apparently being a homosexual is the highest insult to be given.
Apparently being a homosexual is a disgusting choice made by dirty perverts.
Apparently I'm a leacher that preys on helpless heterosexual females.
Apparently, apparently, apparently...
Apparently as the years go by more individuals express their ignorance through hatred towards strangers who have done them no wrong what so ever personally.
Don't flatter yourself.
Why would anyone find attraction in someone with such a hideous personality such as yours?
Don't fret, I forgive you.
I'm sure there is a logical reason behind your toxic words and actions.

I have determination in my bright blue orbs.

My friends are nothing short of amazing,

I'm going to make it big. Have a family,

I'll live a long life, until it's time for me to go.

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.

I grinned and grabbed two little blue bows with tiny silver anchors on them and pinned them in my hair. I also grabbed a bracelet with a black cupcake charm and a necklace with guitar picks hanging down from it and put them on. Making jewelry was a major hobby of mine.

as he put my small hand inside his
and I caressed his rough, sandpaper hands:
the rolling folds of skin,
not as smooth as they had been
And I pretended his age spots
were sand dollars speckling the shore
not realizing even if I rubbed and tugged
the spots were there forever more:
the sand not clean like years before
And although I had
no clairvoyant abilities
I traced his veins like a palm reader
The cerulean rivers weren't what they seemed:
the once roaring waters now trickling streams
And my grandmother just sat there
making gloves in her old rocking chair,
the click clack of her knitting needles
were promptly filling the air
And I don't have a crystal ball
nor a fortune teller will I be
But what happens to the old,
when the body goes cold,
Occurs even if your hands are a beach

Too Good For Me - Jalex*Trigger warning*Too Good For Me - Jalex1 year ago in Romance More Like This
We had just left the studio after recording a new track Alex wrote, which was amazing, as always. None of us had had a chance to eat all day, so naturally we were starving. Alex and I broke off from the rest of the guys, because we share a house.
Not like that, I know, the whole "Jalex" thing, but we're just roommates. Yeah, I wish we were more, but that's the kind of thing that's never gonna happen. Trust me, being head-over-heels jump-in-front-of-a-bullet in love with your best friend sucks. Sure, we're both gay, but have you seen him? He's gorgeous and perfect, why would he go for me? I mean I get that.
Anyway, we drove back to the house in comfortable silence, the kind of silence you only get when you're really, really close with someone. Alex was clearly exhausted, he had his head against the window, his eyelids drifting shut. I'm not gonna lie, it was pretty freakin' adorable.
"Get up lazy, we're here," I teased, nudging him with my shoulder when we got to the h

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.
