RP Blog Event - The Tunnels (Part 2)EDIT: A event is now taking place. Please read the comment which is all underlined to find out more, and have your cheetahs respond appropriately. For example, do not have cheetahs right at the front running away from huge boulders, as that only affects the back of the groupRP Blog Event - The Tunnels (Part 2)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Before we begin, I'd just like to address an issue that I have recently became aware of.
Do not message admins on their personal account asking about when the next part is coming out
Us admins have an outside life. We do not focus all our time on the group. So please, bear with us, and be patient. Do not send us notes asking when the next one will be out. Because apart from the fact that you should not be asking admins about stuff like that on their own accounts, to be blunt about it, that's our business. We will update the Journal when we feel it's right. If you finish your RPing there before other people, that's perfectly fine. But then, do not expect us to move the Journal on just because you've
RP Blog Event - The Journey (Part One)IntroductionRP Blog Event - The Journey (Part One)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
When the Chief of Crowded Waters return, the Tribes had been in a state of shock at the sudden news they must leave the island. After a short discussion, all Chief's eventually made the decision that leaving was the right thing to do, whether it was just down to trusting in Ari and the Keepers, or the fact that the cheetahs who inhabited the island were slowly dying. They all found something to agree on.
After taking the night to prepare, eating as much as they can find, stocking up on herbs, and preparing the elders and cubs for the long journey, each Tribe was finally ready, and at the break of dawn, the Tribes left their territories for the last time and travelled to the tunnels in Crowded Water's territory, where they would leave the island they've called their home for many generations and find a new land to live in, trusting in Ari and his word.
Despite the sun only just rising, the heat is already starting to return the the island after the short relief o
A spider's living hellOKay so I just went and made a pot of coffee, and noticed the strangest thing.A spider's living hell1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Inside the coffee container there were lots and lots of fine, nearly invisible spider webs with coffee grounds stuck all over them. Funny, they weren't there 6 hours ago. Upon closer inspection, I found a tiny spider the size of a popcorn kernel. Dead. It wasn't neatly curled up, but it looked kind of splayed and broken, just sitting there on top of the grounds completely undisturbed, legs in utter disarray.
And then I suddenly realize what must have happened to him.
As I previously made a pot of coffee, the spider looked upon the fragrant glory and thought he'd hop on in to have a splash around in the perfect hiding place. All went well as he rolled around, burying himself in the granules of joy. And then suddenly darkness slowly closes in. His 6 beady eyes stare up in bewilderment as the ring appeared, tightened, like the walls of his throat around his heart. His tiny fucking cell phone rang the Spiderman

RP Blog Event - The Tunnels (Closed)Edit: The tribes have been escorted to their new territories by the coalitions after finally arriving to the new land. However, the territory that the coalitions have given the tribes is harsh and dry.

Acinonyx jubatus fearsoni, used interchangably with raineyii and not believed to be a separate subspecies. While fearsoni was coined first in 1834 and raineyii in 1913, it is the latter which has been analyzed genetically as a distinct subspecies and for this reason that name is preferred.Acinonyx jubatus velox, a debated subspecies generally believed to be the same as raineyii It has been suggested that this subspecies is extinct.Acinonyx jubatus ngorongorensis, a second debated subspecies also generally believed to be the same as raineyii.

The Mighty Bot-Con Battle of 000167
While Blitzwing danced to Starscream's house, Optimus Prime was brainstorming a greasy plan. Blitzwing the autobot decided to go for a fly. Optimus Prime and his friend Megatron, a cat, met Blitzwing at Cybertron. Megatron snatched Blitzwing's oil drum, his most prized possession. Blitzwing screamed, but Optimus Prime just laughed and said, "Holy slagging fuck". Optimus Prime and Megatron crawled away, leaving Blitzwing stranded. Blitzwing dropped to the ground and cried. He was very high.

ChickadeesOne year, when I was a ten year old boy, we had a very hard winter in Connecticut, with temperatures well below zero, high winds and deep snow. The radio told us to put out seed to keep the birds alive, and for the first time in my life, I did. My bedroom window opened to a widow's walk where I laid out a wooden tray which I filled with black oil sunflower seeds, blindly, not knowing if any bird would like them, or even find them there.Chickadees2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Two days later, there were about a hundred (how could one count them if one tried) black capped chickadees speeding from railing to tray and back to grab, shell, and eat the seed.
The old farm house had steam heat which I turned off in my room. I closed the door and shoved the window up and sat beside the sill. The tiny birds would hop right up as if it were no thing at all to be untamed and wild. Into the room they flew, and the boy became a naturalist, completely enthralled by chickadees. They had brought the wilderness to him, and filled his bedroom

A Challenge AcceptedA Challenge Accepted3 years ago in Personal More Like This
An elderly gentleman with a soft smile took a seat next to his young grandchild in the comfort of their living room couch. His wispy white hair found a reassuring home in the hills of their aged couch. He closed his eyes and rested for a few silent seconds. Slowly, he peeped one eye open to look over at his curious grandson who wondered what his grandfather was up to.
"I've got an idea,"said the old man. The creases on his face seem to disappear as he smiled wide.
"What's that Grandpa?" asked the curious boy. His full attention moved from the book he was reading to his grandfathers face.
"I'd like to see how well very own grandchild can train Pokemon. I thought of a challenge for you. Would you like to hear it?"
A huge grin appeared on the boys face. He put the book he was reading down next to him and placed his hands

The Hunter Who Wasn'tI was dressed like a tree and smelling of acorns and doe urine, a curious perfume of my own mixture which makes me invisible to a buck who's better sense has been blinded by the rut, an event that peaks in Kansas on 11/11, which, by the way, is my birthday.The Hunter Who Wasn't9 months ago in Personal More Like This
And I was sitting on a log in a nice piece of woods, on a doe path crossing a gully,
when I turned, and there was a buck about this far away:but with humongous antlers, fully grown out of velvet into six points, with eyes just as sweet as those of my friend above, yet stronger and bigger, and frankly, much more healthy, and I said to him,
"Damn, you're beautiful. Now go on your way, knowing that a man can trick you, by looking and smelling like a pissed-over tree."
Which he did, turning back often, with remorse.

Obviously, the boy was harder to decide. Both applications were extremely detailed and well written, both with very interesting characters. If there was a way we could have had both of them, we would have done. But sadly, only one could be picked </3 After much though, we decided that kakister's character, Nassor, wins the tryout! Thank you so much to MlSTY for trying out as well, Kano was an amazing character <33 If only there had been two boy slots ;n;
Since pregnancy in THK lasts two weeks, and two weeks have gone by, the cubs have been born ;u; So the winners can submit them to the group immediately
EDIT | The due date is in three days!
Well, I wish I could say about how love has blossomed and romance is in the air and pretty much anything else corny you

Edit: I've never expected such a massive response to this journal. But because it's gone all over the internet... I would like to settle a few things first... because I keep getting the same replies over and over again.
1. I made this journal as being my personal opinion. I'm not stating facts here. I'm just saying how I personally feel about drawing fanart. Please don't take this journal as a fact, because it isn't. It was never intended that way.
2. I don't expect you to agree with me. I don't mind either. I'd like you to reply why you think differently. Provide me with your insight and experiences. I'd love that.
3. I'm well aware that I can't change anything about most of these facts. I brought them up for discussion because I want to hear what other pe
