Can Teenagers Fall In Love?Honestly, this question has been weighing on my mind probably since I was thirteen. You know, I've always been obsessed with love, weird as that sounds. Like, it was always something at the forefront of my mind, I wanted it and I wanted to understand it. Not just romantic love, though that was what I wanted; platonic love, familial love. Why were they different? Why did you love your family first? Would you always love them above all else? I was younger then, this obsession of sorts started around six years ago, with my first celebrity crush. That's another kind of love though, and I hadn't realized it then. I was just ten years old, and I was "in love" with a man I'd never met, who was like five years older than me and in a mainstream pop boyband I liked. And he was all I ever thought about. He also started my writing career. Subconsciously, I knew it was all a fantasy but I couldn't help it, you know? So I lived through badly written fanfiction. I was just a kid. And in my eyes he waCan Teenagers Fall In Love?1 year ago in Personal More Like This

I am so sorry for the lack of art. I as of right now broke my SD card to put my pictures on! It doesn't work so I am so very disappointed. I will be uploading pictures I have on my Facebook. I had deleted them of my SD card from my 3DS. But i don't want to use my 3DS SD card because i need a separate one for my camera. I have a few WIP pictures which i may or may not upload.
I would also like to apologize for my previous journal entries x.x I cursed and I was mean and rude. I am terribly sorry. I was immature. I want to have a fresh start!
I would also like to announce that I will be COSPLAYING!! HORRAY FOR COSPLAY! I will be working on my TIFA COSPLAY! From Final Fantasy 7. I will be uploading pictures of WIP.

Saturday also, in theory, went smoothly. My sister and I went went to the Parle Panel at 11(Partially recorded), she went to the human chess match at 12 while I stayed after for the second Parle Panel(fully recorded), after which, I spent a bunch of time loitering in the hall way with Kelly and Jenn, and a Witch I met, where I got my autographs (I have low quality video from this part, which I'll probably keep for me), however, neglected to get some for my dear friend Johanna.

Axel, A Non Angsty Teenager: 2I come to you in the name of Axel, formerly known as Lea. And it was LEE. NOT LEE-UH. LEE-UH IS A GIRL'S NAME!! Anywhoo, as I make my way to my Psychology class, I can't help but wonder where that silver-haired bimbo is. "Hey Firecrotch. Right here." Riku poked me in my side, making me yelp. VERY unmanly. "Hah! You scream like a banshee when poked," Riku slapped my back and I winced. "Ma'am, your behavior is highly inappropriate for this establishment," I sneer at him. Riku just snorts and freezes as his eyes drift behind me. I take the hint and turn around to come face to air with the midget love interest of the teal eyes harpy know as Riku. I look down into sky blue eyes that are supposed to match Roxas's, but I don't see how. Sora's eyes are too...bright. Roxas has a mellow, dark tint to his eyes that really brings out his character and shows his soul. That beautiful, somewhat kinda but not really in a way innocent soul of his. Anyway, Sora smiles up at me and I just nod and step asAxel, A Non Angsty Teenager: 22 years ago in Personal More Like This

Title says it all, really. I've come to the conclusion that most people don't give a flying fuck about my personal life. I write these as a form of therapy...I wish I could say that I don't care that most people don't care, but I'd be lying.
I'll be keeping this short and sweet and to the point.
~I'm joining weight watchers
~I'm getting braces on the 6th of April, not excited
~I had this idea for a series of drawings based on this idea that people would look REALLY different if they looked like their personalities. Thoughts?
~I spend almost every night on thinspiration blogs, I've decided I have a fucking problem...
~I'm really obsessed with the idea of wrist tattoos, and I have been for a few years. Thing is, I had this idea that ties into the fact that I tend to feel really unimportant...a lot. I think it's a teenager thing...mixed with the fact that I have a really bad fear of abandonment.

I am ashamed to be a part of this society sometimeControversial Issues:I am ashamed to be a part of this society sometime2 years ago in Personal More Like This
1) Being gay is not natural. Real Americans always reject unnatural things like eyeglasses, polyester, liposuction and air conditioning.
2) Gay marriage will encourage people to be gay, in the same way that hanging around tall people will make you tall.
3) Legalizing gay marriage will open the door to all kinds of crazy behavior. People may even wish to marry their pets because a dog has legal standing and can sign a marriage contract.
4) Straight marriage has been around a long time and hasn't changed at all; women are still property, blacks still can't marry whites, and divorce is still illegal.
5) Straight marriage will be less meaningful if gay marriage were allowed; the sanctity of Britney Spears' 55-hour just-for-fun marriage would be destroyed.
6) Straight marriages are valid because they produce children. Gay couples, infertile couples, and old people shouldn't be allowed to marry because our orphanages aren't full yet, and the world needs more children.

Durarara 100 winter days challengeAlright I was thinking, seeing as how December is coming along soon, that maybe this group so hold a bit of a winter challenge. Now before bombarding me with questions I'm going to explain so just relax.Durarara 100 winter days challenge1 year ago in Personal More Like This
With December near I thought maybe a winter challenge would be a great way to get everyone into the winter spirits.
Now for this challenge there will be a list bellow of various winter like themes.
Now it must be a reader insert for it to qualify but that doesn't mean the reader has to be in love with anyone or even in a relationship, the reader could just be a friend or even a stranger. Anything goes really for that area.
Next on the list is you are allowed to 'claim' up to two(2) things from the list. Once you fill both out you are free to take two more. That reminds me, if someone has picked the same one that you want it's fine, there can be multiple entries form different people.
Now for the list.

If anyone wants to donate anything to it, that would be lovely lol. No, but once again, I'm going to thank the awesome stranger who gave me a year one in the first place. This amazing stranger gave me my premium membership as his wedding gift to me, which I found to be really sweet and generous. It's actually made me reminisce about all of the things that have happened in this past year on DA: I got married, wrote a book, made so many new friends, and I got pregnant!

And now, I want to say something that has been bugging me about the new cosplay scene for a while now. In a nutshell, being a cosplayer or a cosplay photographer does not make you a professional model or photographer, nor is it a means of "breaking into" the modeling or fashion world. A lot of newer people in the cosplay/convention scene are trying to use cosplay as a way to get famous a

How to be a good subject for your photographer!You should try to:How to be a good subject for your photographer!9 months ago in Personal More Like This
- Instantly listens to quick prompts / direction.
- Be open to any critique mid or after shoots!
- Have a decent understanding of what the photographer is looking at (light/framing)
- Pose naturally and (if in Cosplay) act in character .
- Be confident for the duration of the shoot.
- Avoid being self concious.
- Be aware of the direction of light (to avoid unflattering shadows, etc)
- Loosen up! Literally. Shake your limbs and relax your muscles from time to time.
- Avoid squinting. If the sun is too bright you will naturally squint. Close your eyes and ask the photographer to do a count down.
- Throw ideas at your photographer. Be creative.
So there you go.. If you want to make life incredibly easy for your photographer try and nail the above points.
While I'm shooting I need 100% trust from my subject. I also can't have anyone disagreeing with my requests however odd they are (unless I ask em to do something dangerous, lol).

Notes on Character DesignI received the question pictured below at my tumblr blog. In case it's useful to anyone here, I decided to go ahead and use this otherwise dormant journal to share the article I put together in response.Notes on Character Design2 weeks ago in Personal More Like This
Character design and drawing are tome-sized topics and even if I had all the answers (I don't - I have a lot to learn), I'm not sure I could communicate them effectively. Here are some thoughts an ideas that might help, though.
First, some general things...
Let some of that anxiety go. This isn't a hard science. There's no wrong way, no rigid process you must adhere to, no shoulds or shouldn'ts except those you designate for yourself. This is one of the fun parts of being an artist, really - have a heady good time with it.
- Be patient.
A design is something gradually arrived at. It takes time and iteration and revision. You'll throw a lot of stuff away, and you'll i
Axel, A Non Angsty Teenager: 3You know, there are so many ways to describe how life sucks. Some are creatively witty, some are as confusing as the meaning of a fortune cookie. UNfortunately, MY cookie is being flirted with by a neon yellow eyed, black haired stalker-looking guy who just moved here from some unnecessarily hard to pronounce country somewhere in Europe. My eye twitches and as I approach them, Roxas's eyes catches mine and my heart just melts. "Hey Axel, what's up?" Roxas looks up at me with a curious smile. The guy eyed me before grinning cheekily. Questionable behavior? Indeed. "Hey Roxas. Who's your friend?" I tilt my head slightly to get a better look at the guy, but he turns so I can't see his expression. "Oh, this is Vanitas.

Noctis and Lightning Similarities No One Noticed
1. The hair. Noctis’ is neatly styled from the front, but extremely wild in the back. Lightning’s is long and elegant on the side, but wild and spiky on the other.
2. Their worlds mirror each other. Lucis is a modern civilization, whereas the kingdoms outside of it are medieval. Cocoon is a technologically superior world, and Pulse is the more primitive world below.
3. Claire means bright or light. Lucis also means light. Claire can also mean “clear skies”. Furthermore, Noctis’ full name means “light of the night sky” and Lightning(Éclair) is technically light in the sky.
- i have one, Claire means clear as well as lucis, since on our science book there’s a word “lucid” which means bright and clear and the name Claire means brigh
