Maybe some of you saw this, but I made this fake imdb page for a Marauders BBC show and posted it on tumblr. It was just supposed to be a joke/fantasy, but apparently a lot of people bought it

ScreamPrompt #28, September 2012In the hopes of maybe spurring more than 14 of you to write a story for the group this month... I'm going to have to do something drastic. I'm expecting stories from each of you because there is no excuse for not doing the following: I feel like making you all get introspective and personal. We're familiar with the tired advice of "write what you know", so that's what we're gonna do this month. There is no way there should be any stragglers with this one. You all know something, right?ScreamPrompt #28, September 20123 years ago in Personal More Like This
Think of a word/adjective you don't like being called. Tell a story about someone (NOT YOU) fitting this adjective. Something bad should happen to them that should teach them a lesson and they end up redeeming themselves in the end.
What word/adjective you don't like being called? For me, that would be "princess". In the past, the guys in the kitchen would call me that and I'd have no ide
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 Snape2 years ago in Personal More Like This

In case you didn't know...I was really happy to see people discussing and helping each other understand SOPA and PIPA in the journal comments yesterday. I noticed some comments that asked the same things so here's some quick information:In case you didn't know...3 years ago in Personal More Like This
If you don't know what SOPA does, dA has actually provided a great journal explaining the bill and the consequences http://hq.deviantart.com/journal/Join-a-SOPA-and-PIPA-debate-280023798?utm_source=deviantart&utm_medium=header&utm_campaignebateSOPA_011712 and this website has a lot of information on how to protest against it http://americancensorship.org/ The fight is not over yet!
No, my journal and icon wasn't really censored. It's to show what would happen if the bill became law.
This one is a bit annoying. Quite a few people were saying "People, stop jumping on bandwagons to be cool!" Or "Why is everyone talking about it now instead of when it first came out? You only care because it's a trend now? I new about it way back in 2011." Um, excuse me, but please don't live in

Most of you, dear watchers, know that I have a comic project called “Superstition”, right? And that I have told almost nothing about it and you can find just a few random drawings in its folder: http://maripazvillar.deviantart.com/gallery/37730467/Superstition
To tell the truth it’s a story I’ve been years thinking about and it’s my most beloved from all the stories I have. Some years ago I tried to find a publisher for it, but it didn’t go well: the story wasn’t ready.
SO! I believe the time to try again has come. I’m drawing new test pages and I have polished all the details which needed to be polished. I’m almost ready now.

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?

Historical Disney Princesses FAQRather than answering these individually over and over again, I'm just going to leave this here and add to it as needed:Historical Disney Princesses FAQ4 years ago in Personal More Like This
- 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 Elsa and Anna?
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.
Just one more cool thought for the day.I know I posted a journal already, but I'm going to post this one, too, because it happened today and I wanted to bring it up.Just one more cool thought for the day.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So I was at Costco today, and I didn't have the money for it, so I didn't get it, but there was a Classic Who serial for sale there with all the DVDs. You read that right. Specifically, it was "The Face of Evil" (with Tom Baker). There was only one, butit was there and that is amazing.
Furthermore, I found my mum (who was there too) and told her about this amazingness. She was talking to a lady who worked there and gives out the free samples, and she was interested in what I was talking about, and I explained Doctor Who to her. She thought it was pretty cool.
And then. My aunt (who was also with us) bought some Miss Marple DVDs, and when we got home, I looked on the back out of curiosity, and it turned out they had Peter Davison in them.Peter Davison. Furthermore, the DVDs are for my grandma, who I'm seeing tomorrow, and before (or maybe after) introducing her
Homework 7You will have till the next homework is posted to complete this (as usual, that will be at the end of this month)Homework 73 years ago in Personal More Like This
Morning students, sorry about the previous month's homework, but that needed to be done for your growth as a budding Alchemist.
Thank you all who helped with the rounding up of Chimaera, we didn't have too many casualties. Also thank you to the students who so graciously helped clean the Alchemy lab.
This month's homework will consist of you researching a potion that might temporarily render its user invisible, I urge you to do your research thoroughly as a mistake in your calculations might end in death and humiliation. The Alchemy lab will be open for anyone who wants to try and make this potion during this month, but be careful, I would advise you work together with a fellow Alchemy student on this project.
For added safety be sure to tie yourself with a rope to your partner if you chose to work together with someone, this will help you keep track of your pa
Devious Journal EntrySnape's BirthdayDevious Journal Entry2 years 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!

"Ore-sama" was pretty much the last rem(a)inder of my silly and flamewar-ridden weaboo fad, when I, as an adult, styled my hair like Sasuke (Naruto), wore Sharingan lenses, thought it normal to wear an Akatsuki cloak to the airport, and paired Kakashi with Sakura just because pink and gray looks good. Oh, and I was depressed and suicidal because Miaka (Fushigi Yuugi) got all the adventures for being 15 and Japanese, which meant my life was doomed to suck forever because I was 18 and a fat Jewess.

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

Four thousand words.
All prompts are live
Here's what's gonna happen. I will list four prompts, one for each week of this month. Once a new week starts, the prompt for that week will be posted. Since I've been rather word-count heavy lately, we're taking it back to Flash Fiction. Because the prompts are going to be fairly simple compared to the past, I will be attaching a difficulty to each one, mostly to help you avoid leaping toward to most obvious initial ideas. Read on...
MAKE SURE YOU FAVE THIS JOURNAL AND WATCH FOR THE WEEKLY UPDATES!
April 3-8: A character does not want to go home.
Difficulty -- there's no abuse waiting for them when they get there.
April 9-15: Something they believed in their whole life has been a lie.
Difficulty -- no religion allowed.
