Fun with Severus SnapeIn my part of the world it's carnival season right now, and I thought we could all do with a good laugh, not only about our tragic hero, but about ourselves as well. So I took a look at my favourite Snape jokes and funny pictures to present here. Severus, please don't take offense, a sense of humour sometimes is all that keeps us going, and it would have done you a world of good, too!Fun with Severus Snape1 year ago in Personal More Like This

Why it makes sense that Snape died...Now that I have probably angered a bunch of Snape fans, let me explain.Why it makes sense that Snape died...1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I love Snape and his death broke my heart, and of course I wanted him to live! I wanted him to live because I felt he deserved better than dying the way he did, never having a chance to really make his own life, as he was always bound to his dead love, his guilt, mistakes, and his masters.
However when I really think about it in a canon sense, and more detached from my Snape-love, it really makes perfect sense to me that he died and it seems right that he did.
If Snape had survived the war, what sort of life would he have had after? Fanfictions deal with this a lot, and in many varying ways. I love to read about "Snape survived" fanfictions because the possibilities are interesting and endless. Does Snape get away from it all in a quiet cottage in the Orkneys? Does he stay at Hogwarts and take up his old post as Potions Master? Does he spend the rest of his life with effects from Nagini's bite? Does he finally move

Banned (Please Read)For those of you who did not know, I was recently banned from deviantART. I can't talk about the situation in detail, but I was accused of something that I myself had not done, but that was somehow related to me in some way so the ban was placed on me. After Alex rallied up a bunch of supporters and many of you signed the petition to remove my ban, the deviantART staff took a closer look at my case and saw that I was not the one who performed the act that caused the ban in the first place.Banned (Please Read)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
However, due to deviantART policies they are not supposed to remove a permanent ban once it has been put in place. So I had to make a deal with them and sacrifice something of importance in order to get access to my account again. I was put on a week-long suspension, and I had to give up the ability to communicate with anyone from the site ever again. I have to disable comments from all of my deviations and journals, and I am no longer allowed to send or receive messages to or from anyone on deviantA

Today, I want to talk about something that's been on my mind for quite a long time: Daily Deviation suggestions.
But it wasn't until I read Lyricanna's There is no nice way to say it but and alicexz's New DD Suggestion rule that I felt the need to echo their words and add my two cents.
Quality of art: When sending a Fan Art suggestions, please bear in mind that I want to feature unique works. The best of a fanartist's gallery. What I look for in a Fan Art Daily Deviation is not cuteness. Cute just doesn't cut it, like Lyricanna said. I search for emotions, technical skill (composition, shading, colour, etc), interaction of the characters with their surroundings and other characters. I'm looking for pieces that tell me a story and/or show emotion. Of course, there ar

Did You Know? John Dimaggio, the voice actor of Bender from Futurama and Jake on Adventure Time, voices the actor of Toph and Iroh in the episode "the ember island players".
And that Dante Basco (the voice Zuko), older brother voiced the actor of Zuko in that episode also?
Did You Know? The pink roses that Bolin was going to give to Korra resemble trust, happiness, and confidence?
Did You Know? As far as we know, none of the previous avatar have had siblings.
But there are things that i was shocked that they got away with on a kids shows. Like sex for one!

On that note-- you may notice that on our homepage, some things have been translated into Spanish! That's because Vapour-Dreams has been kind enough to use her bilingual expertise to tend to any primarily Spanish-speaking Loki-Hiddles fans that may be in, or be joining, our group. Just in case some people were not a part of our group mainly because of the language barrier, she did that for us. I think it's pretty sweet, don't you?

Almost DDs: Volume 7I suggest DDs.Almost DDs: Volume 72 years ago in Art Features More Like This
It's a tricky business. You have to find a piece you're passionate about. You have to make a case that's convincing, but not begging or posh-sounding. I have had a few bursts of luck- 4 accepted suggestions, but the good bulk of my suggestions don't make it.
I realize that the GM have to make some tough choices. But I want to give my suggestions another chance, in case it was something on my end that was why they declined them.
And I still felt they deserved a feature.
As a note, a few pieces this time (again) are not eligible for DDs because the artist received a DD on a different piece after I suggested it.They'll have *s. Some of these pieces are also pending suggestions, but if a GM sees multiple suggestions of the same piece, I think it ups the chances!
So, without further ado, the Almost DDs, Volume 6!Please show these artists some love, and if you really love a piece, suggest it as a DD!
A Tribute to Russian Snape ArtistsOne of the things that blew my mind when I first came to DA was the number of Russian fan artists here and how incredibly good they are. In Russia the HP and Snape fandom seems to be very active, and it shows.A Tribute to Russian Snape Artists1 year ago in Personal More Like This
What I particularly like about the Russian artists is that a) for the most part they are highly skilled, b) often they have very much their own style and c) something about this style strikes me as distinctly European. I might be wrong about that last one, and I can't really pin it down to something in particular, but that's how I feel about it, anyway.
As usual, the hardest part of assembling this journal feature was not *finding* the artwork, but choosing and deciding which ones to display. So, same as with the others, this selection is a bit random, based more on my personal taste than anything else. I've included a few people from Ukraine or Belarus, as well as some whose nationality says something else but who obviously speak Russian. Most of the artists have done a lot more

Devious Journal EntrySnape's BirthdayDevious Journal Entry1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Today is Severus Snape's 53rd birthday, or at least it would have been if JK Rowling hadn't seen it fit to kill him off. But Severus is harder to kill than she might have foreseen, and so he lives on (happily? - I'll leave that to your imagination) in our hearts and minds, fanfics and pictures...
As I haven't produced anything yet that I'm happy enough with to upload here, I thought I'd do a feature of some of my favourites as a contribution. There were far too many to put them all here, so I decided to show only art that gets less attention.
The credit for this idea goes to :iconcabepfir:, who did it in 2009 http://fav.me/d3jipuq - I hope you don't mind I stole it! Snape, of course, is (c) JK Rowling.
So, without further ado - enjoy!

- I'm not telling you which princess I'm doing next.
- I would appreciate it if you didn't tell me what character I should do next, or what you're looking forward to, or what character you hope I'll do! It's very sweet and I definitely appreciate the sentiment, but consider the fact that you're something like the 400th person to tell me about Elsa, or Anna, or Merida- it's not adding a lot to the conversation.
- No, I'm not doing any Kingdom Hearts characters. There's no particular historical precedent, so they don't really have anything to gain from this series.
Are you going to do Merida?
YES PLEASE STOP ASKING sobsobsob
Are you going to do any more pieces in this series?
Yes! Let it be assumed that I will continue doing these until stated otherwise.
