Es, Ch. 20: Without Peace She reached home; still happy to share Flame's house; and searched for Flame. She couldn't find him anywhere so she went to his door and knocked No response. Opening the door, she found him asleep on his grand bed, completely at peace. She was uncertain whether to wake him or not. After all, he had no sleep last night, but she figured that he should know immediately. So, reluctantly, she woke him.
Flame wasn't angry; he was tired, but not angry; and he listened closely as Ember explained the fight that occurred between her and Soria and where she was at now.
Flame got out of his bed and Ember led the way back to the cabins where she left Soria. During the walk the rain stopped, as to be expected from the length of the journey, and Flame yawned while Ember's stomach growled; she still hadn't eaten anything.
As they reached the two cabins Ember found Blue off the roof and not in sight, with th

Guys... I don't know what the hell happened.
Oh wait... yes I do.
Someone posted a "This was stolen from [link]" on my latest image -- http://ninjakato.deviantart.com/art/Some-days-you-just-don-t-want-to-wake-up-339562224 (the image has been stored but the link should suffice) and I clicked the link because it was a link to a DeviantART page... it sent me to the log in page... next thing I know... my account is deactivated... and it's saying I have the verify my email address as firstname.lastname@example.org (I don't remember the email address exactly).
It seriously happened so fast there was no time to investigate further...
The first account was a bait account (sending out the message of accusatory theft to get the person's attention) then the second [link] account is the actual phishing account.

Be vigilant of phishing scamsYour account's security is of vital importance to deviantART and we're committed to providing our members resources and advice on how to stay safe and secure online. Earlier today, an individual or group of individuals redirected some deviantART members to a false deviantART login screen by exploiting a cross-site-scripting vulnerability in deviantART's Journal system. This tactic, commonly known as phishing, allowed the individuals to gain access to some accounts.Be vigilant of phishing scams2 years ago in DeviantART Announcements More Like This
Phishing is a serious matter on the Web. You've probably heard of phishing attempts through emails, the classic example being a fake email from a bank or other trusted authority, asking you to enter your personal information.
The individuals discovered and exploited a cross-site-scripting vulnerability in Journals that provided them the ability to redirect deviants to a different website, designed to mimic a deviantART login screen. Some deviants who did not realize that they were bei

FallenLullaby's Tips To Writing a Reader-InsertOkay, I know I'm not the best writer out there, but I thought maybe this would be of use to others. This can apply to any type of Reader-Insert, but I'm using Hetalia as an example.FallenLullaby's Tips To Writing a Reader-Insert2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Tip #1: S-p-e-l-l-i-n-g and grammar! Believe it or not, these are very important. Bad spelling and grammar can completely ruin a story. Unfortunately, Microsoft Word is a bit of a bitch when it comes to grammar, so I'd suggest re-reading your story over again to check for any mistakes. Also, you can always get an editor.
Tip #2: Keep the character's personality the same! Unless it's specifically crack or the character is drunk off their ass, try not to make the character too OOC. I know it can be very difficult if you're writing something like NetherlandsxReader where nobody even knows how the fuck Netherlands would even react to different situations, but give it your best shot to keep the characters in-character. I don't think I'm too great at this either, but hey, we sho

There are several uses for this feature. Say you're walking down the street, and you see something that catches your eye. Perhaps there's an impromptu dance party, or the sun is setting over the mountains. You only have your phone on you, and you snap a photo. It looks amazing, but that photo is forever doomed to reside in your phone. Now, you can email that picture to your Sta.sh and have it ready for you when you're home. Sta.sh also gives you a place to store that photo so you can share the link with friends.

Wow, so my deviation seem to have struck a nerve with alot of people both positively and negatively.
I just wanted to say im sorry if I offended anyone who just wanted to give some constructive criticism it truly wasn't the point of the deviation.
There were two main points in this "protest" pokeball, they are:
1. To make those who bombarded me with the "you are an art thief" comments, I explained my stance on this and some people didn't get it or they wouldn't read the previous comments I made to other people so they just wrote what they wanted and the whole thing started up a flame war, which I assure you I did not want in the least.
2. The other side of it was to those who wanted my artwork off DA because they have seen it "way too many times and DA is sick of it", I really don't feel that a small group of people could tell me what ALL of deviantart wanted to see you know? Also, I was sent many many many notes with insulting and uncalled for rude language and threats towar

How to Protect a Dragon Conqueror, PrologueMy name is Hiccup; you may know me as the chief's son who trained dragons, or you might know me as the Dragon Conqueror. You've probably seen my face on a Wanted poster. According to Alvin the Treacherous, a Viking outcast, I'm worth thirty sheep and a shipload of fish. Apparently that's only one sheep more than my dad, Stoick the Vast, who also rides dragons. We Vikings have our priorities straight.How to Protect a Dragon Conqueror, Prologue2 years ago in Personal More Like This
But I'm getting ahead of myself. To put yourself in my shoes, a scrawny teenager with a metal left foot and a playful Night Fury, picture a cloudy day dotted with patches of muddy blue, like some blather-brained idiot had dabbed the sky with thick paint and then left to clean his boots. In doing so he had also dropped his favorite rocks into the ocean, creating the mountains that surround Berk. It was the perfect day for diving into the ocean.
That's what Toothless and I were doing. Toothless is my dragon, an ebony Night Fury with fierce loyalty and a rambunctious sense of sport. He growle

Lily was always squeamish. She never watches Animal Planet because it always shows a lion eating a gazelle. She only likes dragons if they breathe fire, not swallow a person. Her brother, Drake, is another story. He likes seeing people and animals suffer. He likes hard vore and will only like soft vore is somebody gets hurt at least a little bit. Lily and Drake are polar opposites. But one day Lily got something she hated.
It was a sunny day. Lily was playing dress up with her dolls while Drake stole a doll and made his toy t-rex kill it. At school, Lily was in the fashion club while Drake was in the dragon club. Lily made fun of it by taunting Drake, saying "Dragons and Wyverns aren't real!" while Drake yelled replies saying "Yes they are!" It was one family operation, all right. A brother and sister that have nothing in common are bound to hate each other.

How to Protect a Dragon Conqueror Chapter EighteenThe next few days got eaten up like freshly caught cod, and Dad made sure they were devoured with gusto. Before the sun even had a chance to stretch its arms over the horizon, we'd be off delivering the young Outcast recruits back to their native islands and fighting the resident overlords that held their food supplies hostage. He claimed that we would find Alvin on one of those desolate settlements, where we had to chase down rogue dragons and tame them for the liberated people, but I suspected that he wanted me away from Berk, where Alvin had struck last. Also, Thornado left a notable impact when his scream blasted away Alvin's delegates on the islands; no one dared fire at him or his riders.How to Protect a Dragon Conqueror Chapter Eighteen2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Oh right; he was begged to do the job by his friend Elizaveta and since he kind of needs the money to pay his rent (and he can never say "no" unfortunately), it was only inevitable that he would show up Monday morning dressed in a plain white collar shirt with a black vest over it, a black tie, black slacks, and dark formal shoes.
