Note: They're gonna be in my design.
PLEASE READ THE RULES/REQUIREMENTS AT THE BOTTOM FIRST!
And please keep an eye on this journal, because new things will be posted now and then. It's your responsibility.
We Noldors are one big happy family. Kin slaying? Hatred? Betrayal? Nope, never heard :3

NEVER SEEN BEFORE contest - deadline approaching! We encourage you to take a part in theNEVER SEEN BEFORE contest - deadline approaching!10 months ago in Personal More Like This
"NEVER SEEN BEFORE" - big Tolkien themed contest
Details in MirachRavaia's own words:
I recently got a comment on my art which made me realize that there are many scenes and characters in Tolkien's book which almost never get illustrated, while you can find hundreds of illustrations for others. Just a few examples would be
- the events during the Scouring of the Shire
- the Ringbearers arriving and living in Valinor
- Galadriel living in Eregion or passing through Moria to Lórien
- Pippin exploring Minas Tirith with Bergil
- the "lesser known" kings of Gondor and Númenor and Chieftains of Dúnedain
- Túrin attacking Glaurung in front of Nargothrond's gates BEFORE the dragon's look paralyzed him
For this contest, you need to find one that you have NEVER seen illustrated before. I won't give you more examples so you can think of your own, but feel free

Hello! My name is Šárka, pronnounced Sharkah. I’m a 20 years old student of biology at Charles university in Prague.

Fanart Incentive Scheme!Hey guys.Fanart Incentive Scheme!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I feature a lot of EBF fanart on the Facebook page and on my website, and have decided to start giving free Steam copies of EBF4 to anyone who gets featured.
I think I'm also going to retroactively award some copies to people who have been featured in the past.
Here's the fanart I've featured on my website so far: http://kupogames.com/category/fanart/
Also, for anyone who's done fanart, you should go post it in Steam's community section for EBF4. It's kind of empty right now, even though a lot of fanart already exists for the game.

Just a matter in general. Including my rants - just because it's in my Japanese's nature to be picky about respect and manner and shat like that lol.
I wanted to express my opinions about it, so it's not something I expect people to agree.
(Though, if you are completely against it, I rather don't want to know about it. Please keep it to yourself.)
It came to my attention that some people think that if you give credits, you can take other artists' work and edit over it. (If you get a permission, that's totally great - but in most cases, people don't.)
When I mean "other people's work", I don't mean by screenshots from any "official works" that exists (like anime screenshots, comic pages, etc). I'm specifically pointing out works that are done by an individual (just like us).
It's really sad and annoying to see when you find someone using an illustration from random websites and drawing their stuff over... ruining the original wo

Hey guys, I just got back from an 11 day trip to Sweden.
It wasn't a particularly interesting trip; I didn't do much sightseeing or anything fancy. Just chilling out with student type people and experiencing some very different living conditions.
My brother's been studying in Luleň for the past year, and he'll be going home soon, so this was my last chance to visit. Most of the students were gone by the time I got there, but there was still a bunch of awesome people left. My brother's got a flat all to himself now, and lots of leftover gear (bikes, food etc) from the other students.
I already visited in January, so the journey there was pretty routine; Ryanair to Stockholm, and then got a sleeper train to Luleň. Went with a slightly more expensive cabin this time, and although it

The sudden realizationMy boyfriend and I watched a documentation about Indie gaming yesterday. Not that I'm so much into gaming, but I do enjoy an occasional documentary. And if there's one thing that I have in common with those Indie game makers is that we're both artists and we're both working on an own project, although that project is very different in nature. The movie followed a few of those indie game makers through the making and publishing of their projects.The sudden realization2 years ago in Personal More Like This
One of the people that were followed, was Phil Fish, the developer of a game called Fez.
While his game seemed to be pretty good looking (I'm not a gamer, so I've never played it), the drama around the making and the release of the game was what I remembered most. Threatening to kill a fellow co-worker and that kind of stuff. At the end of the movie, both I and m

The wolf is a common motif in the foundational mythologies and cosmologies of peoples
throughout Eurasia and North America (corresponding to the historical extent of the habitat of
the gray wolf). The obvious attribute of the wolf is its nature of a predator, and
correspondingly it is strongly associated with danger, destruction, making it the symbol of
the warrior on one hand, and that of the devil on the other. The wolf holds great importance
in the cultures and religions of the nomadic peoples, both of the Eurasian steppe and of the
North American Plains. In many cultures, the identification of the warrior wit

"When is the best time to plant a tree? Twenty years ago. The second best time? Today."
- Chinese proverb
2014: This is the 3rd year of the project. There are many people supporting it, featuring it in their journal and offering art. BUT... There have been NO trees planted for it in the last year (I don't count mine). So, instead of talking about it, how about getting up and actually planting a tree, if you are able to? There is a lot of wonderful art waiting for you as a reward!
Trees are important, valuable and necessary to our very existence. It's not too hard to believe that, without trees we humans would not exist on this beautiful planet. Trees are the largest and longest living organisms on earth. To grow tall the tree has become a miracle of engineering and a complex chemical factory. It is able to take water and

So I won't be working on anything, but I'll probably still have internet access.
Anyway, I finally got my driving license! Hurray!
I made quite a lot of mistakes on the test, but nothing serious enough to fail apparently.
It's a bit late, but I live in a big city, so driving isn't always the best way to get around. Hopefully now I'll be able to do a bit of exploring in the countryside.
(I'd also like to point out to the Americans that our driving test is a lot harder than yours, and we don't drive automatic cars either. )
I had a Minecraft party to celebrate afterwards.
We explored King's Landing and Winterfell, played some minigames, and teamed up for the Hunger Games. Great times were had.
We got pretty good at the Hunger Games by the end of our 11-hour Minecraft session. Managed to win two matches!
