Ok some of you already know about this if you follow me on tumblr or the ask blog but recently the Dirkjane blog has been getting hate from some really forgetful or just plain stupid anonymous DirkJake shippers http://ask-dirkandjane.tumblr.com/post/26686068205
I think Soli handled replying to this pretty well but I'd just like to emphasize
It is not okay to tell someone to pack up their "stupid ship"
If you tell me that Dirk is canonly gay I will ask you to point me to the page where he said that himself.
If you telL me that Dirk is canonly gay for Jake I will ask you to show me that friggin quote where he said "I like boys and I love Jake we make hot yaoi."

I am now the Squall of Rage.
Now my title abides by the monosyllabic rule that all God Tiers have.
But seriously, 'Squall of Rage' makes more sense than 'Zephyr of Rage'. A zephyr is a gentle breeze. A squall is a violent gust of wind. :icongamzeeapproves: It's Gamzee approved.

Mafia game signups(FILLED)~I am deciding to host a dA mafia game~Mafia game signups(FILLED)~2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I will be needing 15 people to sign up and possibly a cohost~
The theme for this Mafia game will be TotalDramaHetaStuck(Which means the roles will have characters from Total Drama Island, Hetalia, and Homestuck, as those are my fave fandoms at the moment)
For a greater understanding of Mafia here is a link where you can learn how to play~A general explanation of Mafia is here: http://www.sitesled.com/members/mikeburnfire/mafiascum04.swf
The ratio will be 10 townies- 4 mafia- 1 neutral
The neutral is neither town or mafia but eliminates a player of their choice on even nights~
SIGNUPS ARE FILLED~
I SENT OUT THE ROLES! CHECK YOUR INBOXES!~
The game will take place here~http://chat.deviantart.com/chat/dAMafiaGamez

Ever Wanted To Work For Visual Arts Academy?So, hey, serious question for anyone. Want to help out run the website where I host my Apophysis Courses? The current administrator is stepping down. This could possibly mean the end of Visual Arts Academy, which would make me very very sad. It needs someone who can handle money, registration of students, hiring of instructors, updating of website design and content, and stuff like that. You could make some money too! (Which is always a plus, right?)

A Dog's Purpose?
(from a 6-year-old).
Being a veterinarian, I had been called to examine a ten-year-old Irish Wolfhound named Belker. The dog's owners, Ron, his wife Lisa , and their little boy Shane, were all very attached to Belker, and they were hoping for a miracle.
I examined Belker and found he was dying of cancer. I told the family we couldn't do anything for Belker, and offered to perform the euthanasia procedure for the old dog in their home.
As we made arrangements, Ron and Lisa told me they thought it would be good for six-year-old Shane to observe the procedure. They felt as though Shane might learn something from the experience.
The next day, I felt the familiar catch in my throat as Belker 's family surrounded him. Shane seemed so calm, petting the old dog for the last time, that I wondered if he understood what was going on. Within a few minutes, Belker slipped peacefully away.
The little boy seemed to accept Belker's transition wi

A fractal artist meeting is being planned for 25-27th June, 2014 to be held in San Sebastian (Spain) and you are all invited!
The venues for this 3 day event have already been booked and invitations are going out to the fractal artist worldwide. This is a chance to meet and vacation with other fractal artists while also sharing in a day of lectures to learn more about fractal artistry, the history of fractal art and the tools we use.
A few US artists got together informally a few years ago and had a terrific time meeting each other and sharing ideas. We decided that the next one needed to be in Europe so that more people could attend.

First of all a few words about our challenges.
The February Challenge Wrap-up Journal http://ultra-fractal-redux.deviantart.com/journal/Wrapping-Up-The-February-Challenge-357233210 brought some interesting responses from people about things they felt they had learned, or found difficult about working with the Harlequin II colouring. If you'd like to see what was said and discussed do take a look! Remember that comments and discussions can take days to finish so don't forget to check out interactive journals like this more than once so you don't miss anything.
Our current March Challenges have seen some interesting results coming in and seem to be giving many of you plenty to think about and work on. I have noticed several Laris formula images coming up in DA's fractal galleries so clearly this challenge is giving people fresh ideas in their own work. Excellent!

By request I can do free live tutorials on Ultra Fractal. I use Join.me. It's feature that allows you to follow my screen and chat by text. Some teqniques are best explained from my chatroom. Take a look in my gallery if there is anything that looks like something you want to learn and I'll see if I can teach that. I'm not good at abstract stuff, though. Tutorials does not always show a lot of techniques. It can be the thoughts about the effect that is just as important to grasp.
For some tutorials and techniques you will need some preknowledge about Ultra Fractal.

To everyone who sent me birthday wishes or made something, this is for you. I feel bad about this, but well- My birthday isn't anywhere near May. 14 May is my fake Internet birthday. However, just because it wasn't actually my birthday doesn't mean I didn't appreciate al of that. In fact, I was touched by the efforts of all of you.
