ScreamPrompt #25, April 2012Fourth Month.ScreamPrompt #25, April 20123 years ago in Personal More Like This
Four thousand words.
All prompts are live
Here's what's gonna happen. I will list four prompts, one for each week of this month. Once a new week starts, the prompt for that week will be posted. Since I've been rather word-count heavy lately, we're taking it back to Flash Fiction. Because the prompts are going to be fairly simple compared to the past, I will be attaching a difficulty to each one, mostly to help you avoid leaping toward to most obvious initial ideas. Read on...
MAKE SURE YOU FAVE THIS JOURNAL AND WATCH FOR THE WEEKLY UPDATES!
April 3-8: A character does not want to go home.
Difficulty -- there's no abuse waiting for them when they get there.
April 9-15: Something they believed in their whole life has been a lie.
Difficulty -- no religion allowed.

The great hall of E3. The first thing you see when you enter the South hall (E3 is fricking huge).
Nintendo's area! I hung around this area for most of the 3 days since well... I love Nintendo! I played more games here such as Splatoon, Yoshi's new Yarn game and countless others.
A photo of me playing my 3DS while I wait in line to play Hyrule Warriors.
Me at a Monster Hunter photo shoot x)
The huuuuuge Super Smash Bros Wii U screen where players would battle it out to win a legit gold SSB medal. I kept winning the training part, but never the final battle T__T Still, my boyfriend won two medals and gave me one lol.
This isn't me, but I took this photo of my boyfriend and my friend photo-bombing him when we attended the Xbox One conference. It was really cool experiencing the conference live!
I also met people like the well-known Triforce guy and the creator of Tetris! *___*
Video and Encouragement For animatorshttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ron03dpc-5sVideo and Encouragement For animators3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Ok, please don't think of this vid as something for Codename Kids Next Door Creator. I watched this to see what he had to say about creating the show, but he said some REALLY inspiring things as well.
Here's one for you:
Tom Warburton actually says he wasn't a good artist.
People often think that you need to be amazing at drawing to be an animator. NO YOU DON'T. You have to WANT to do it.
The vid is only about ten minutes long. Take a look at it. It inspired me just as much as Dan and Swampy's work does. These guys here, worked their butts off to get where they are. And all three of them have TV shows that were and are still considered to be the BEST of kids cartoons.

After approximately 168 hours of playing video games, sleeping, walking on my treadmill, watching movies/anime, and doing leisure activities that are rare for me, I've decided to start another project.
It is said that when people die, they become stars. A group of people from different parallel universes and planets go on a journey to travel outside the Solar System and bring back loved ones who have passed away.

FOR ANYONE WHO'S READING THIS A BIT LATE
This all happened about five to six months ago. Obsessing about this would be just silly, on either side. If you managed to find your way here by now and would still like to know what happened, I'll give you a quick summary.
There USED to be a BHB journal explaining everything that happened , but DA recently banned a bunch of groups for whatever fucking reason. Anyways, it turned out that Rai (Nincianda) was Kas all along and wasn't actually 13 and had been banned from DA I believe at least 10 times already? Anyways, she was caught and flipped the fuck out. Aisha was caught tracing and left DA forever, but she still uses tumblr.
Nincianda ended up being someone who drew badly but found out people thought it was cute for a 12/13 year old. She also ran around telling people crazy stories about how she was abused and other shit, but when

Sometimes in youth we play crazy mind games. One gruesome game was trying to think of the worst way to die. Or even better, the "which would you choose" version of the same conceit. Another was what would be the worst torture to endure. If there is one international touchstone that best captures youthful fears and wonders in speculation of what lies beyond the veil of death and awaits as possible punishment for our sins, it must be - to the few who have actually read it to the millions who "know" it – "Dante's Inferno." Who does not shiver at the thought of being lost somewhere in the "Nine Rings of Hell?"
DA Lit : Who We AreI am proud to be exclusively a literature artist. I really don't know how to do anything else. Here on DA, Literature is not necessarily under appreciated by most of the people in the community, it is just widely ignored. I think, really, many of us are completely okay with that. For the most part, we aren't here for popularity.DA Lit : Who We Are3 years ago in Personal More Like This
We are here for each other. We don't have thousands of followers. We don't have millions of faves. But for the most part, we have been able to find other artists that help us to refine our art. I've said it before and I'll say it again: I truly cannot express the appreciation and love that I have for my friends who consistently critique my work. One monstroooo, ChibiDomo, or any other of my adamant critique-rs is worth a thousand faceless, nameless followers.
We are a community of our own. There are many groups here on DA that inspire writ

Reduced to AshesA Phoenix to Arise
If something burns your soul with purpose and desire, it’s your duty to be reduced to ashes by it.
Today, Lady Gaga’s throne as a reigning pop diva is a 24 carat gold wheelchair, emergency hip surgery forcing the cancellation of her latest tour – a betrayal more devastating for her than for the typical performer, given her relationship with her fans. Her body has finally broken in sacrifice to the needs of her monsters for constant contact and reassurance. The question now is
Messed up dream...My neck is sore after all the weird dreams I had last night. I kept waking up over and over again. But one dream was really funny. I wanna share it with you all.Messed up dream...3 years ago in Personal More Like This
In my dream, I was eating popcorn and watching TV (which in real life, I don't have cable). Suddenly, there was a knock on the door. I opened it to see ProtonJon and Chuggaaconroy at the door. They said they had a convention in town but needed a place to stay. Why out of all places would they come here?
Jon slumped onto my couch and turned on my brother's PlayStation3 and started playing Assassin's Creed. I sat beside him and said "I didn't even say yes or no, but I'm glad I got to meet you both." Chugga smiled. "Do you watch our videos?" I nodded "of course!"
Chugga got up and went into my room. Jon followed. I was a bit nervous because two 20 year olds were in a house alone with me... a teenage girl. Already I knew the situation was suspicious. When suddenly, I heard screams from my room. I ran there, only to see the two Let

"Ryan, what about your dad?" Brendon asked.
"What about my dad?" I asked him, kissing his neck. My fingers were knotted in his hair and his hands hooked into my belt loops. We were on the couch participating in obvious activities.
"What time's he supposed to get home?" Brendon asked, bringing me back to his lips.
"I don't know. Whenever," I answered quickly, wanting to do less talking and more kissing. I pressed my mouth to his as his tongue slid passed my lips. I stopped suddenly, however, when the familiar scratching of the key in the front door reached my ears. Sitting up with my legs on either side of Brendon, I put my hand over his mouth and the other on his quickly rising and f

This title has been censored courtesy of the gov'tSo, I'm sure all of you have heard of the new legislation that is trying to be passed in the government lately. If you haven't, these bills are H.R. 3261 Stop Online Anti Piracy Act (SOPA; introduced by R. Lamar Smith) and S. 968 Prevent Real Online Threats to Economic Creativity and Theft of Intellectual Property Act of 2011 (PROTECT IP; PIPA; introduced by D. Patrick Leahy). These acts working together are supposed to protect commercial industry against copyright infringement via the Internet. Although this is an honorable task, this is not the underlying purpose here. The government is trying to censor our Internet! These bills are extremely broad and does not differentiate enough between commercial industry and the everyday people. What does this mean for you?

Why You Should Keep WritingWhy You Should Keep Writing2 years ago in Literature Features More Like This
Q: What do you guys think of my story so far? Should I keep going?
This seems to be a very popular question. I'll argue it's a useless question, and explain why.
This reply is directed at new writers, and despite the tone that may follow, I really do intend to be sincere and helpful. I was once a newbie, too. And although I'm certainly not going to claim to be great, I've fallen flat on my face enough times to learn how to pick myself up and produce something I'm proud of.
Here's why you need to not ask this question. You're either going to succeed, or you're going to fail. But, either way, you'll be better off for having:
2. Figured out how to motivate yourself to continue
3. Completed the entire first run of the story yourself

I believe in deviantART. Which is to more accurately say I believe in the concept and the reality of the deviantART community.
When in contemplation of the eternal wellspring that is the deviantART project and how it has become the engine keeping my heart and mind on a full burn as I strive to be an upstanding member of the community as well as a helpful architect and eager participant in the conversation -- my thoughts inevitably settle upon my attempts to define my concept of Gratitude.

I Don't Write Sins; I Write Tragedies...?Long story short- I was looking up who the actor from Panic at the Disco's I Write Sins Not Tragedies video (You know, the baby-faced groom with the green eyes that pierce into your soul? His name is Daniel Issac, by the way, but that's not the important...) and Google, (oh sweet, sweet Google,) brought me to the page for the video on Wikipedia and I happened to come across the reason Ryan Ross titled the song:I Don't Write Sins; I Write Tragedies...?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
"The title of the song refers to Douglas Coupland's novel Shampoo Planet, wherein the main character, Tyler Johnson, says: "I am writing a list of tragic character flaws on my dollar bills with a felt pen. I am thinking of the people in my universe and distilling for each of these people the one flaw in their character that will be their downfall — the flaw that will be their undoing. What I write are not sins; I write tragedies.""
(Personally, I have never read the novel Shampoo Planet, but I am totally adding it to my summer reading list)
That is an interesting thought-

A magic of effective art can be a drawing that appears to be a movie still, clipped from a film narrative, evoking a powerful sense of storytelling— and the viewer wants to know the rest of the story. This phenomenon has recently manifested itself on deviantART— and in a big way— once again.
