The 1845 International Exposition At times, the job of a queen can be a difficult one. She must be kind and gentle, firm and confident, diplomatic and informed. She must be capable of leading a kingdom or nation through times of tribulation, of sometimes choosing the best course of action when none were present. She must secure their border, maintain the rights of her people, appease and defuse conflict. She must appear strong, an able leader and a forceful hand in global politics. There were many things a queen must be, many more that a queen must do. More, than could be listed. If they could, however, the top of Elsa's list, would be the protection of her people, keeping their well being as her utmost concern. They were why she had grown up in seclusion, they were why she had fled after her gifts had been revealed, they were what had brought her home and kept her there.

The cure ((Heroes Quest))*While working in the mountains, Kristoff overhears a conversation of two ice harvesters about the horrible virus down in Arendelle. Everyone sick. Noone can find the cure. They’re pretty sure the Queen and princess Anna are sick too. He stopped working. He had to find the cure. And there’s only one place to go and only one person that can help.

- Bulda, there’s no time to explain. Where’s Grand Pabbie? I need his help!

Reunite - Moving to Paris ((Heroes Quest))After a short journey and one or two bad surprises :iconWDisneyRP-Marahute:, :iconWDisneyRP-Frollo:'s guards and Flynn had finally made it into the harbor of Paris. This place had seemingly been under attack as well.Reunite - Moving to Paris ((Heroes Quest))9 months ago in Personal More Like This
Speaking of which. It seems that there were more ships in the harbor. Ships that Flynn had seen from the windows within the castle. The same guards that had collected him from the floor a day ago were now helping families and single persons out of the ships. During his trip here he had already lied to the guards, who had positively as well helped in saving his life, about being Marahutes 'master' who had supposedly captued and trained her. Fearing that he wouldn't be allowed to see her, if he had told them otherwise.
Now that they had finally halted in the harbor he didn't loose a single minute to skip down the plank and over to where the citiziens were still getting off the ships. He craned his neck to get a better view at them and see, if he could spot

Thank fully there was only him and one soldier in here and,thankfully again, the soldier just seemed to be recovering nicely.
Arthur was in here due to an injury from an encounter with Constance, the result reopened a wound on his back from Paris.
It was nothing fatal but it was a pain. His back had stitched and was clasping an ice pack to the bruise around it.
He felt as useful as a chocolate kettle right now.
He was worried about everything, he leaned back trying to reflect on what he'd found out hoping that's he'd over looked something.
Thanks to Dug they now knew who was behind all of this.
And he was almost certain that her and Pete were in cahoots.
But why were they doing this?!
He'd been told that the sword in the stone was the difference between destruction and peace but it had only brought destruction and the one pulled it...was Flynn.

OMG its an Asian!I don't know if you guys know this but Im actually an Asian living in Australia. And there's always something from my family that ticks me off, and it's how they always view themselves as an outsider living in a foreign country. My father especially, would always say 'We Asians bla bla bla' and 'The westerners bla bla bla'. Nothing too racist but always drawing a line between the Asians and everyone else who doesn't have black hair and HD widescreen eyes. Very often we would be watching something random on TV and as soon as there's an Asian or mention of Asian, my parents would turn into meerkats sitting right up and bringing their full attention to it. They would be like "OMG its an Asian!" and try to listen closely, sometimes even turning the volume up to find out what is going on. Like as if to find out whether the Aussies are making fun of the Asians. And when there's an Asian in movies, even just a not important character who only appears in the movie for 5 minutes, my dadOMG its an Asian!1 year ago in Personal More Like This

...Unfortunately, reality was horrible.
Piglet now knew that those horrible nightmares about a dusty, dark attic were very real, and that what he found in the forest that night was not one of those monsters that went away when he turned on the lights.
He had heard some things but he did not completely understand...Rani, Quasimodo and another man he did not know...They tried to save him and they had made a deal...He could not hear what that was about but they could not stop crying, so it had to be something terrible...Or maybe they were crying for him?
The truth was that...Piglet was scared. He felt with almost no strength to do anything. Like if he was going to fall asleep and never wake up again. On the contrary, the ghost looked rather enthusiastic. Right after they appeared in that strange place, she threw him to a corner and went to her broken mirror to watch herself. Sometimes she muttered something but in such low voic
Team crafted rantI have lost respect for everyone in team crafted apart from Deadlox. I still watch them a bit but they have been very immature about this situation. The thing is that they kicked Seto out of the group and their reasons were very stupid:Team crafted rant1 year ago in Personal More Like This
-his channel is too small (just because be hasn't got 1 million doesn't mean he is not important!)
-he wants privacy (that is understandable surely!)
-his commentary style is different (that makes him unique!)
Team Crafted was all about friendship and friends making videos not business but now that has changed. The only reason why I still respect Ty is because he didn't vote Seto out. He protected him and i really respect him for that. The rest of team crafted voted Seto to go. They said that they would stay friends with him but they haven't spoken to him at all since the kick which is very immature and selfish of them. Seto is very upset about this and i believe it is really unfair for him that he was kicked just because he is different. He soun

Animution TipsI feel like making an animution tutorial, so everyone can animute!Animution Tips3 years ago in Personal More Like This
But I'm lazy. So you can have some small tips in journal form instead.
Tip One: Frames
'amg ur animution is so smoof wai can't i animute lyk u??'
Which animation looks better? 1 or 2?
Well why don't people animate like 1 then?
Frames! Add as many frames as damned well possible! Surely it's obvious what the difference is?
Don't make a cycle with 8 frames
Make a cycle with 16!
Does a bit of your animation look choppy? Add some inbetween frames!
Onionskinning, I do it all the time. (What's onionskinning? This!)
The reason one animation looks smoother than another is always down to the number of frames.
The framerate I like to use is 0.07 seconds.
That's 12.5 in Flash, 70ms in GIMP and 7 in Fireworks.
You should always stick to one framerate throughout your whole animation.
Nothing going on in your animatio

For many of us, the first “art gallery” to command our attention (and constant, even daily, monitoring) in our
lives existed within the pages of the local newspaper. It was called “the movie section” and its ever-changing movie
advertisements were like little frames that rarely contained less than pure magic for young imaginations.
The Film Poster has existed since the earliest days of silent movies and the pulse-elevating excitement of the
first sight of an upcoming adventure, action, or sweeping love story that we might have only “heard good things about”
still packs a psychic punch throughout movie lovers today.

Going to China!It's been almost five years since I last visited my homeland, and I'm excited and scared at the same time.Going to China!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
My last visit in 2009 left me a bit traumatized but I think I'm okay now. My stepmother and half brother in China had tried to kill me with a kitchen knife. I was shaking and crying when I escaped in a taxi that night. After that event, I couldn't feel safe anymore. I changed my flight to return to the US sooner, and never wanted to go back again.
But that's in the past now. I miss my grandparents and other relatives. I miss the food, the cicadas, the unique mountainscape of Sichuan, and ever dwindling bits of the old city that's quickly being replaced by skyscrapers.
I'm looking forward to seeing how much China has changed. Though I'm not looking forward to breathing that air. Air pollution is such a constant health hazard that I had to buy hundreds of dollars worth of respirators for me and my grandparents. I will also be buying air purifiers (that's another five hundred dollars

From bad to worseThe truth was that he was feeling much better: he was still tired, even if he had slept for many hours, but at least he could sleep, his stomach now accepted food and he felt most of his strength (though little) restored.

It was then when he saw him.
Piglet was not very fond of that so called Honest John. He still thought he was the rudest fox he had ever met...Well, and the only. But Dug was with them and if Dug was involved in the matter nothing bad could happen to him, right? In fact, Honest John had come to apologize for his behaviour. That was pretty nice of him, wasn't it? At least that was what Piglet wanted to think...
There he was, in a sack, in the hands of someone who hated him, thanks to those thoughts.
His desperation was such and he had begged for help for so l
