People who want to know if I like Breaking Bad never ask me if I'm a Bro-king Bad.
First of all, I'm not anyone's bro; I'm a girl. Does it say something about our society that the accepted gender-neutral term for an adult fan of My Little Pony, of all things, treats male as a sort of default?
To me it's kind of a crutch for guys who are embarrassed admitting to the world that they love something girly, for fear of ridicule, and sticking "bro" in there gives them...a sort of handhold, down into the girliness abyss.
To this I say, welcome to the sisterhood, boys. Take off the training wheels and just admit everybody's feminine sometimes.
But, yeah, I'm a My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic fan. Of course. La la la, ponieeeeeeees <3 <3 <3 <3
Happy holidays from deviantART!Happy holidays from deviantART!3 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through dA,
Not a troll was stirring, nor Grinch in his sleigh.
Deviations were hung in digital Galleries with care,
In hopes that +Favourites soon would be there.
The n00bs were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of Daily Deviations danced in their heads.
And Fella in his 'kerchief, and spyed with his night-light,
Had just settled down to log-off for the night,
When over in the Forums there arose such a clatter,
Fella sprang back online to see what was the matter.
To the browser window he flew like a flash,
Tore open the tabs and refreshed the cache.
When what to his art-loving eyes should appear,
But an animated sleigh and eight commissioned reindeer,
With a little old driver, so creative and slick,
Fella knew in a moment it must be St. Nick.
More rapid than broadband, his reindeer were famed,
After all his favorite art

Iam able to forgive your ways
But Iam not up for this chase
I want to believe you love me just the same
But your lights are hidden and I'm in the dark again
I can't make your heart beat in the wave of new romance
Iam one to take a chance
To start anew and spark a fire from the past
Tell me you need me all the time
Don't walk away, don't turn me cold
Tell me you love me and that it's true
I won't run but I won't wait
Tell me that your heart bleeds
Just for me
Inspire the fire from inside me
Or turn me cold like the winds in my soul
LostShattered and tornLost3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Detached and withdrawn
Darkness surrounds me
Iam dying for the light to reflect in your eyes
Where am I now?
Where do I stand?
I cannot believe from just a touch
Make me see what's there if anything at all
I have no guide to see this through
Be my angel, come from the dark
Because it's all I know and feel
& you can't see me now..

FailureWell, this is awkward.Failure3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So, I guess my plan had some minor flaws. Namely that when you tie up deviantART staff with yarn and lock them in their office supply closet, they can use scissors and letter openers to break free. I even put a mirror on the inside of the door to confuse them! How did they know that was the way out? They're some smart humans.
They broke free, activated their laser pointers, and regained control of the servers and databases while we were dreadfully distracted. Now, everything is back to normal on deviantART. Worst of all, they said we "were very, very bad" and that they were "disappointed in us". That guilt is hard to live with, my friends.
We're back to drawing board now. No, we won't give up hope of total world domination. We're so close, I can feel it! Watch out, world! This isn't the last you'll see of FUR.
But world domination will have to wait until another day. Who's ready for a cat nap?

This is a informative article, outside of the normal DLD activities, to bring awareness to a pair of bills currently under much discussion and debate. These bills are called called SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) and PIP (Protect IP), presented to the House of Representatives and the senate (respectively) in the United States. Later in this article, we will also discuss how these bills have a world wide significance. At the end of the article are several links to the actual bill, news articles, and forum/journals related to this topic. Our aim here is to give to a brief overview, and to answer some questions concerning this debate.
SOPA itself is an attempt to stop online piracy both domestic and foreign by the United States Gov't. It employs a variety of tactics in order to achieve this, including scannin
Thoughts on Caius BalladI will probably be eternally hated by a lot of you but right now, I could care less. I need an outlet and this is the only one I have.Thoughts on Caius Ballad1 year ago in Personal More Like This
So. Caius Ballad. I don't know much about the XIII trilogy compared to some of the other games in Final Fantasy. However, I know enough about Caius that I've formed a solid opinion on him as a character. It hit me a day or two ago that he is exactly what the High Rulers of my stories would turn into if I didn't write them as animals with strong wills. For one, Caius was driven mad from his inability to save Yeul from dying after receiving her final vision. The High Rulers have suffered the same: they've seen countless friends die over their 6,000 year lifespan.
One reason they haven't gone mad is because they process grief differently than a man. Caius, for all his power and immortality, is still human. Suzaku, being what he is, doesn't fully understand death's permanence. He grieves like anyone would when a friend dies but it's forever laced with

A Pop Culture Interpretation of The Supernatural
Every culture around the world created gods and other mythical beings by mixing and matching fanged and taloned animal parts—e.g., enormous eagle heads on lions’ bodies—human beings have always seemed to need to believe there are powerful and usually quite vengeful supernatural beings lurking just beyond the candlelight.
Supernatural beings come to serve several purposes:
They kept people on the lighted path of truth and goodness, fearful of exploring beyond;

Don't under-sell yourself 100 points = $1Don't under-sell yourself1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I see so many people on here under-selling themselves, and I've read and talked with lots of folks about how it's been ruining the business on this website. It may be good for the kids who only want to pay 10 cents for commissions, but it's bad for the person doing the artwork and especially bad for people who set their prices realistically trying to make REAL money. Be it for bills, goals, etc.
I've seen other people make journals like this, and now I'm gonna do it too.
If you raise your prices, you and the artists around you can earn more money.
When I see people under-selling their work, I sometimes point it out and try to encourage them to reconsider what they're doing and how changing would be much more beneficial to them.
I know some people are scared to change their prices. "No one will commission me if I do!" But imagine what would happen if all the people you see around you under-selling themselves raised their prices? Fan

I will keep this journal and the files up for anyone who wants to use the previous version.
It is with great joy that I present you with my custom version of Inkscape that I have so lovingly dubbed "Ponyscape". For the past month or two, I've been working on improving Inkscape whenever I could find some free time (which wasn't easy ). I've been using my custom Inkscape version in my most recent vectors, and am proud to announce that I feel it is ready to be released to the masses! For anyone running Windows, you can download the entire package, unzip it using 7zip or winrar, and run inkscape.exe. If you want to compile from source or are not on Windows, download the Inkscape source from their website (http://www.inkscape.org) and apply the source patch (if you need help with this, feel free to send me a note).
