Yaroslav is one of the four ancient gods who once took a part in creating a world, where Taho rules for now.
Yar is responsible for the destruction of worlds, which are listed as 'finished their life'. He is often assists at the wars and cataclysms, which foreshadow the destruction of worlds. His has stealthy and quiet character, he is silent and rarely seen in anger.
He has no magic as such, excluding congenital peculiarities - his presence has a detrimental effect on every creature. All who are close to him die sooner or later. Therefore, Yaroslav lives alon

Also, huge thanks to my best friend and co-author :iconkimir-ra: We combined our worlds and created a new exciting story!
I'll start with Misteria:
Misteria and her brother Azamat were born into a big family. She was a very playful child and grew up to be a beautiful girl. She shared all of her thoughts with Azamat, and he was the closest person to her. After her brother and she entered the Academy of Chaos, they started to notice a big difference between their abilities. Also, it was necessary for them to make an important decision. One of them would need to die and go to Hell (to serve demons), the other would go to Heaven and live there. Azamat loved his sister so much that he cho
Literary Compass - Vol. 13WelcomeLiterary Compass - Vol. 131 year ago in Literature Features More Like This
If one is looking for Literature, you don't need to go far on deviantART. There is a large community of writers and a plethora of work to peruse. Featuring genres such as fantasy, mystery, horror, and romance, one would be hard-pressed to find an area not covered. However, due to the nature of the site, shorter works tend to get more focus. It's easier to quickly read a poem or a short story, and thus many of the feature articles on dA showcase those works. However, there are many novelists and serial writers among the mix, oftentimes fighting an uphill battle to have their works seen and appreciated.
With that in mind, I have started an article to spotlight some of those artists and their literary-worlds. The works covered in this feature will exclusively be long-form fiction such as novels, trilogies, etc., or fiction serials.

I'll start with Aminael and her brother Roland:
Aminael is the second child of Misteria and Taho. She grew up in a gentle atmosphere, very much like a fragile flower. Her father treated her like a princess, but all his hope was placed on his son, Roland. When Aminael noticed that her parents spent more time with him, she decided to become smarter and more powerful than her brother.
Anyway, Roland didn't like to play with his younger sister - she was useless and annoying whenever he played with his friends. He didn't notice her until she grew up... into a beautiful girl.
Aminael always tried to dress in clothing which was gray and unremarkable but acqui

How are you? I'm just fed up XD
It said that some psychologists tell some patients, to healing:
- 1st step is admitting you have a problem I do.
- 2nd step is identifying the problem I constantly abandon my doujins.
- 3rd is learning how to correct it Applying the only effective methodology that worked for me in the past with the only doujins I finished, I mean, the 2 doujins I have for sale.

News #5 -- More Points for CommentsThank you to those who left feedback on my latest poll about the Comment Service. Deviants can now earn 1.0 point per comment instead of the previous 0.5 points.News #5 -- More Points for Comments1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Since the implementation of the Comment Service about a month ago, there has not been as much activity with comments as I had expected. I had thought that the minimum word count of 25 words may have been too high, but it seems that people did not mind the word count as much as the points they were earning per comment. The points earned for giving comments has therefore been increased (The price for receiving comments is still the same at 1 point = 1 comment).
If you'd like to earn points, please make sure to carefully read the comment guidelines below before giving any comments:
Comments must be at least 25 words long and they must have a # at the beginning.

Introducing my Original Characters!Hi everybody!Introducing my Original Characters!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
My "Draw my OCs" Contest is open, so the time has come to tell you more about my OCs and their stories!
Below you'll see the list of the comics/projects/stories to which my OCs belong and you'll be able to know more about their pasts, their behaviors, their love stories and much more!
The order in which the OCs are listed doesn't mean anything: there's no project I like more than the others, or no OC that you'll have to draw to have more chances to win. Everything depends on your ability to portray them and their stories, independently from your drawing skills. If the drawing is technically perfect, but the characters are completely different from the ones described here (physically and temperamentally) it won't win, because it doesn't represent my OCs in the right way.
So, do your best and don't forget to read the descriptions carefully! ^^

The 100 Themes ChallengeThe 100 Themes ChallengeThe 100 Themes Challenge7 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
We know there a few clubs out there now supporting this challenge.
However, many of those clubs are inactive or having troubles. So, we decided to create an 100 themes challenge club that supports the original list AND 4 other variations meaning we should have something for everybody.
For those who don't know, allow me to explain.
The 100 Themes Challenge is a project where you are given a list of 100 words/themes to create pieces on up untill you complete the whole list. And there is no time limit! Its a good job because this can take ages to complete. Not a very good challenge for the impatient I must admit. And you can complete this challenge in whatever medium you want. That includes poetry and prose. You don't have to stick to one medium throughout. You use whatever you like and you don't have to do the list in order either!
And, if you had fun completing it the first time, you can go try another variation and try another list all over again!

Just because you shot it in the street...JUST BECAUSE YOU SHOT IT IN THE STREET IT DOESN'T MAKE IT "STREET PHOTOGRAPHY"Just because you shot it in the street...1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Street Photography is a largely misunderstood and misinterpreted photography genre http://myraincheck.deviantart.com/art/Statistics-on-Street-Photography-371453155 .
So, let's try to kill the most common misunderstandings:
Street photography is not photography of (empty) streets and it is not necessarily a photo taken in a street.
Street photography most definitely is not photography of your All Stars shoes in the street, it is not photography of your cat, or of graffiti or 'street art' (that's another genre of photography), it is not photography of your friends or family on trip.
Let's see some attempts to define street photography:
"The essence of street photography is the impulse to take candid pictures in the stream of everyday life" (from 'Street photography Now').
" For the most part, however, the photographers discussed in these pages have tried to work without being noti

Happy Holidays Folks
Yes I say Happy Holidays. Now that the War on Christmas is starting I would like to explain why.
There are four different reasons to use Happy Holidays:
"Happy Holiday", an English translation of the Hebrew Hag Sameach greeting on Passover, Sukkot, and Shavuot.
"Happy Holiday", a substitution for "Merry Christmas".
"Happy Holidays", a collective and inclusive wish for the period encompassing many holidays
"Happy Holidays", a shortened form of the greeting "Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year."
I use it mostly for 3 and 4 , not 2. I say Merry Christmas to those I know who celebrate it either in a secular form or a religious form, this would include my family and a few friends.
But mostly I say Happy Holidays because of reason 3. No, that is not an attack on your faith or religion, this phrase does not make you a victim.

In a chatroom setting the game is fast paced fun with the timer set to a few minutes and participants compete in several rounds. Speed writing is key!
