HAVE I TOLD YOU RECENTLY HOW MUCH I LOVE YOU?
No? What do you mean, 'no'?
Well, I LOVE YOU ALL.
I log on today to find 37 new comment stacks, and I think 'That's quite a lot more than usual'.
Then I look at the front page.
On the '24 Hours' setting.
What do I see?
MY CHEEKS HURT FROM THE GRINNING.
AND THEN I CHECK THE REST OF MY MESSAGES.
I HAVE GOTTEN AN EXTRA 100 WATCHERS OVERNIGHT.

YOU GUYS ARE THE BEST AND YOU ARE AWESOME AND MADE OF KITTENS.
(Unless you are allergic to kittens, which in that case, you are made of sprinkles.)
But, in all seriousness, I can't thank you enough. I tried very hard to reply to every comment, but I don't think I can personally thank every , so, to all you watchers, whether you watched me from the beginning, or have just started...
THANK YOU SO MUCH!

The Travelling Lemon: Writers' EditionThis randomly came to me. Yay Cabin Pressure!The Travelling Lemon: Writers' Edition3 years ago in Personal More Like This
HOW TO PLAY:
Two players- both must be writers. The first "hider" lists four to seven stories(/chapters) from his/her gallery (depending on length, preferrably fanfictions) that the lemon may be hidden in. Beforehand, of course, he/she has randomly placed the word "lemon" in one of them (NOTE: ONE AND ONLY ONE OF THEM). This can be accomplished by hitting the EDIT>EDIT TEXT buttons on the deviation. The seeker must then look through the stories, until he/she finds the lemon. He/she will then post a comment on whichever deviation the lemon was found in, in this format:
"[sentence/phrase where the lemon was found]" [list of his/her stories where the lemon is hidden]
Taunting sentences such as, "The lemon is in play" may also be added. If the seeker cannot find the lemon, then he/she must admit defeat.
Place the lemon thick in the plot where your opponent will be too busy anxiously reading to notice it

The Ever Evolving Icon
What is it about a fictional character first introduced to the public in Great Britain in 1887 that has kept him being reincarnated, with generationally-correct upgrades, over and over again in film and on television? Who is this literary hero whose portrayal over the past century by such past masters as Basil Rathbone and Jeremy Brett to today’s vanguard talents Robert Downey, Jr. and Benedict Cumberbatch has inspired such a continuing outpouring of fan appreciation?

The Hiddles Project**This Journal entry orginally written for :iconLokiMyLove:**The Hiddles Project2 years ago in Personal More Like This
OK, first off, I know we have a contest going on, and many of you are probably busy with that, but I have yet another thing to busy you with; please forgive me.
It is what I am going to call, *The Hiddles Project.*
I was commenting a "letter to Tom" for one of :iconLoki-Hiddleston:'s polls and thought, hey, I have an idea.
So here it goes!
You may write a letter to Tom Hiddleston telling him of how he inspires/has inspired you, how great he is in his films, or whatever you wish to say to him! It can be any length you wish, but I'd prefer if you kept it to a reasonable limit. (Also, please keep it appropriate, people). At the end of the given time period, I will take all of the letters I recieve and post it here on dA as a huge compilation of letters to Tom. Then I will send him the link over Twitter and ~hope hope hope~ like crazy that he clicks it and discovers all of our heartfelt letters.
I wrote him a letter myself and e
My Best Motivational TipWhen I become overcome with the guilt and shame and fear as a result of my constant procrastination, I have one trick to get me off my ass that works every time.My Best Motivational Tip3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Now, lots of other people and blogs and whatever are all like "look how lucky you are" and "puppies and rainbows" and "if you get it done now, you'll feel better" and lots of other positive shit. While all this stuff is true, I'm still playing Assassin's Creed II for like four hours a day. It doesn't motivate me at all. I still don't want to write a 500 word essay on the subtle differences between the book and the film adaptation of The Road that's due, like, tomorrow.
So here's what I think of.
"Michael Bay wants me to fail."
Insert your own celebrity arch nemesis if you want to, but basically choose someone so crap that it makes you angry. Preferably someone who's getting paid buckets of money to do whatever they do to piss you off.
Competitive nature and the desire to prove your chosen asshole wrong should take over.

the contest will be open for judging by group members as soon as the folder closes.

UNDERSHAW SAVED!!!!!!'THANK YOU TO EVERYONE! We're speechless and totally lost for words. But we DID IT! The team of over 13,000 has saved Undershaw!'UNDERSHAW SAVED!!!!!!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
-Five hours ago, the Facebook page of the Undershaw Preservation Trust posted this.
Undershaw was the house of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and there had been many people trying to save the house, which was in danger of being destroyed.
And now it's saved.
A few of the groups here on DA were asked by the web 'leader' of the organisation to help out, and many people sent out stories to a book being made to help preserve the house.
So-A triumph for the Sherlock Holmes crowd.
What do your characters give to you?We all know that we put countless hours of energy into creating our characters.What do your characters give to you?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
We give them everything. We give them their identities, attitude, genetics, hobbies, wardrobes, relationships, surroundings--the whole works. But what do they give us in return?
Most people may say their characters give them back a sense of accomplishment. Something to do. Entertainment.
While my little darlings give me that, they give me so much more.
They give me ALL SORTS OF PRETTY FEELINGS and disgusting feelings I guess. They make me cry and they make me smile. I particularly listen to the way people freak out over characters in television shows on here and on tumblr mostly on tumblr and while I am no stranger to those sort of feelings, I feel that way about my characters, too! What's that, I hear? Reflections on Doctor Who or Supernatural or the Avengers that go something like MY FEELINGS OH GOD MY LIFE IS RUINED NO PRECIOUS BABBUS OH GOD I WILL NEVER MOVE FROM THIS FETAL POSITION IN THE CORNER OF MY

Shout It Outs.

"Ah, the world-weariness and pain what can only come from the old soul of a middle school furry." ~ TikTak
These wonderfully color-coordinated windows into the very soul of DeviantArt are guaranteed to warm the cockles of my heart every time one trembles its way onto my screen. Black backgrounds, Comic Sans, and tormented critters pave the way to expressing things you previously thought you could never shout out.
I pour over the deepest, darkest secrets you reveal to the world, like "I'm really skinny but I still call myself fat" and, "I secretly hate people" and, "My mom doesn't know I self-harm, unless she uses the internet" and, "Friends are useless" and, "I feel so ignore by you" and, "I'm mean to my friends" and, "Fuck you" and, "Why do people hate me??" and "I'm not Asian".

So apparently Benedict and Martin know..."Watson's right. Nobody cares what he says the internet has already decided. In fact, from the minute Sherlock appeared, the instant audience conclusion was that Holmes and Watson were lovers. Cumberbatch and Freeman have been dealing with the fallout ever since, in part with good humour, in part with mild exasperation. "Much as Sherlock adores John, and he's fond of him, there's no love, there's nothing sexual all the jokes aside," Cumberbatch says. "The problem is, they [the jokes in the script] fuel the fantasy of the few into flames for the many. People presume that's what it is, but it's not."So apparently Benedict and Martin know...3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Criticism has been a big issue for many artists, including me. Some take it for granted, others throw a hissy fit. So, how can we provide and handle critiques without making a big fuss?
For Critic: HOW TO PROVIDE HELPFUL CRITIQUE
Dont criticize people who explicitly state they dont need critiques.
But they wont go far in art industry with that attitude!
Those people may do not even wish to be an artist. They just draw for fun. Theres no point of spending your precious time analyzing ones picture and writing a critique if that person doe
