Episode Fifty-Two: Show Me How To Care
Lina's not so merry band of travelers was fully aware of the lovers' spat, or perhaps ex-lovers' spat, between Xellos and Filia. The same fact applied to the majority of the inn's current guests, yet the shouting had been so fierce that they dared not complain. At least the quarreling couple had quieted by now. While Filia enjoyed her stolen ice-cream on a rooftop somewhere in town, Xellos proceeded with his investigation. Sure, why not? He had already dragged his stubborn pride through the mud and danced a stupid little dance on top of it. So why shouldn't he ask all sorts of mortifying questions for the sake of survival?
Besides, he was Xellos; it took a lot to embarrass him. The part that really bothered him was how exposed he had been lately. It wasn't like back when they infiltrated that all female kingdom. He didn't have a big problem with parading around in a pretty dress, because back then he was still the trickster who
Photoshop TutorialHey my little deerlings!Photoshop Tutorial2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Remember that photoshop tutorial I mentioned long time ago I would do?
Well! I finally decided to start doing something about it! Last night, I wrote down a list of things I would like to talk about in it and I would like to tell you what I have planned. Because this will be multiple part tutorial, I won't be doing only one, but 3 or even 4 different tutorials.
Here are what I was planning to talk about in each part.
Part 1 - Getting to know Photoshop! Tips, tools and Tricks.
In this part, I would pretty much introduce you to photoshop and the tools that I use the most. I would teach you some of the most helpful tools and their shortcuts. Some words about layers and how to use them. And maybe something about filters and adjustments.
This is obviously not that important if you are already quite familiar with photoshop but you might learn something new. The main reason though is to make you familiar with some of the tools so I don't have to explain them in
IT IS OVER!My deerlings!IT IS OVER!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I just got back home....
IT'S OVER! The presentation is done for!!! :icontuzkiyesplz::iconyeahplz:
And guess what? It went GREAT. I wasn't nervous. I didn't mess the words. Heck! I had so much to say that my teacher had to remind me I had only 5 minutes left! And people asked me questions after it. They actually were interested! :icondragonwant:
Iih! I'm so happy! This part is finally done and all that is left is to register that I am ready to graduate and do this simple essay test (to make sure it was I who actually wrote the thesis and not someone else for me) and then.... I'll be a "Bachelor of culture and arts". Hmm... Sounds so charming in English. :iconflynnwinkplz:

Since there are some bigger surpluses of books than others, some volumes are just 3.99 apiece! And ALL are significantly under the sticker price!
And as always, I am keeping you up to date on book 8. Going over the pdf with the printer this week, there seems to be a problem with font substitutions, but after that's all ironed out it's just a matter of getting it all finalized and up for printing!

I really wrote them while watching the episodes, so it's even better than a big old review, I guess.

What do you think about the new and last season?
I think FUNimation did a great job.
I don't even know why I'm so fond of it.

Leaps and BoundsPerhaps I'm feeling nostalgic tonight, but there's something I have to say.Leaps and Bounds2 years ago in Personal More Like This
When I wrote this story, I was very young, I had never written a proper novel-length text before, and I can honestly say that it was one of the most rewarding experiences of my early teenage years. I was at an age where I was discovering myself not only as a writer, but as a person, and I think writing 'Leaps and Bounds' helped me with that - even if I never did learn to like that title! I've improved a lot since then, and I absolutely refuse to go back and read it for fear that I'll hate the thing that was once one of the most important features in my life.
That said, Leaps and Bounds helped me in a way no other piece I've written so far has. Through it, I met the most wonderful people, and I still treasure every review and every piece of fanart. I was in a world I had never known. People liked my writing, people were talking about my writing, people were drawing fanart and writing fanfics for my writing. And
Find Your Homestuck Troll Blood Color!Yeah so here is how it works! You need to figure out your sun sign, and your moon sign. There is a calculator similar to this one out there, but it doesn't take in account jade bloods or mutants. This also doesn't require rounding. Hussie has already stated that the only troll blood colors that exist are the ones we have seen in the comic + lime. I also had to take in account that the jade blood color is rare, but the odds of getting jade with the distribution unadjusted are extremely high, so I figured out a way to make it work so it makes sense. I also took in account that fuchsia blood is extremely rare, and so is being mutant. The distribution that I am working with is a pyramid. I'll explain the breakdown at the end.Find Your Homestuck Troll Blood Color!2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Random Doom: What's next?Hello little deerlings!Random Doom: What's next?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Wohoo! It is done! All the bios of the main RD characters are done! Woo! You know what this mean? Well, I'll tell you!
First, some people have been asking me if I am going to give those bio sheets for any kind of use. Well, I am happy to tell you that yes, I am giving them for free use. I just need to go through the PSD file and check the layers are named right and it is as simple as it can be. (there are MANY layers). I'll also change the fonts as the ones I was using are not common and apparently not free either so I am not comfortable giving them out with the PSD file. So, let me do that first but you can expect the Bio sheet very soon.
As for RD, there is still the minor character bios and especially Elisa's that I need to do but I think it has been long enough... Yes, I think it is finally time to start updating Dear Departed again! I'll catch up where the story is right now, maybe edit some of the old pages (dialog mostly) but yes! RD is back!
Random Doom Plans!Hello little deerlings! Hope you are having a great day and upcoming Autumn!Random Doom Plans!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
In my last journal I mentioned that I had some big plans for Random Doom which got many of you excited. Since I am not sure when you guys will see the results of my works, I thought it would be fair to at least let you guys know what I am planning to do so you know I am doing stuff behind the curtains.
To but it simply, I am planning to give the comic a big make over and update. I am not planning to change the drawing style or anything but change some important things or update them. For example, all character bios will be redrawn and updated! Current ones are old and the info is outdated so they need an update. Plus the art is old and I never really liked the bio sheets (even though everyone else seem to love them since I see so many pokemon bios in similar style). So, that is one thing I am planning to do.
Next, some character designs will change... Now now! Nothing too dramatic! To be hone

Hiraeth also expresses a sort of ache or longing for something of the past, somewhat similar to the notion of "golden" or "good old days," but with more ancient connotations.
