"Bent get up dude mom and dad want to get going like right now." A voice said to me through the darkness of the closet that I slept in.
Without even moving or lifting my head I replied groggily "Tell them I will be down later."
The closet door closed and I stood up; stretching from my head all the way to the end of my tail. M claws dug into the carpeted floor as the feeling of refreshment flowed through me. Kyle, the person who woke me, was downstairs talking to his parents.

New Thumbnails + OpinionsOnly beta testers can see it yet. But I just wanted to share my opinion about it and would also like to know yours.New Thumbnails + Opinions3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Ok... so I personally don't like it.
First of all, those are really big, it may be better for people with higher screen resolution but to me they look huge and it take longer to scroll and see everything. I think there should be an option where people can choose if they want to browse with normal or big thumbnails.
Also, on deviations with transparent backgrounds, on the thumbnails the backgrounds are not transparent anymore.
I also don't like how everything is now congested. I liked when everything was aligned and clean, it was easier to browse and easier on the eyes, and also faster to look at. This + the bigger thumbnails, it just got terrible to browse and it don't make me feel like looking at the front page anymore. I just look at the first few deviations at the top now, and that's also what most people are going to see too, giving less exposure to other deviations t
New deviantART ThumbnailsHey folks!New deviantART Thumbnails3 years ago in Personal More Like This
You may remember a while back we showed off some brand new thumbnails in #hq's Journal. Well, after many weeks of porting and tweaking based on community feedback, we finally got these brand new thumbs ready for beta testing!
The new thumbnails
UPDATE (May 19, 2012): Based on feedback received, we've updated the new thumbnails to be justified. Thumbnails are now spaced out across the rows, making them flush against the left and right sides of the page. When a browser's window is too small, justification cannot happen without leaving larger awkward spaces. In these cases, justification is turned off and thumbnails become left aligned. We think these changes present the most appealing interface for both cases.
For those of you who didn't see the new thumbs when they were previewed a month back, here's a re

How to Become a WriterNeed help on writing? Take a look what I found on "How to Become a Writer"How to Become a Writer2 years ago in Personal More Like This
(This is not my words)
1. Consider all of the options. Not everyone can create a blockbuster novel. Anyone with passion might be able to earn a living from writing. Copy-writing is probably the highest paid skill on the Internet. Article writing is in great demand for providing content for websites. Creative writers are in demand to bid for projects every day. So the first step in how to become a writer is to research all of the options.
2. Plan using logic and desire. Write the way you want, but decide whether or not you want to rely on the income from your writing. Not having a regular job will allow you to focus on your writing, but it's very unlikely that you'll be able to depend on it for at least a few years.Then you might get bored.
3. Think about what you want to write, instead of what you want to get from writing. You won't get anywhere if all you're after is money.
4. Be prepared to work odd hours -- y

Whatever Happened to SpongebobNo I'm not talking about that episode; I'm talking about the show. I'm genuinely curious as to what happened to the Nicktoon Spongebob Squarepants over the past ten years. It went from a charming and funny show to one of the most mean-spirited, disgusting, and perverse shows that currently exists. Rebeltaxi99, a popular cartoon reviewer always says that people are complaining that the new episodes aren't as good. That's not true. The episodes are HORRIBLE. They have ranged from annoying to vile to cruel. A drop in quality would mean that we've gone from shining stars to plain mediocrity. Instead we've gone from episodes about selling chocolate bars door-to-door to episodes featuring a grotesque infected splinter and episodes making fun of suicide. I need to know how this happened, how it was allowed to happen, and more importantly--could this happen again?Whatever Happened to Spongebob9 months ago in Personal More Like This

Final Salute and Honorable Firing of the GunsRead the bolded text on the bottom of the page, it is of utmost importance!!!Final Salute and Honorable Firing of the Guns9 months ago in Personal More Like This
DeviantART, listen to me, and hear my cry!!! This site has suffered a tragic loss recently. A reputable, popular, amazing writer/friend/comic resigned from his position here, and deactivated his account for reasons currently unknown.
Such an occurrence does not commonly take place within this booming community predominating over the non-conforming internet. Yet, when it does, a ripple of deep sorrow and regret pulsates throughout the gatherings of the leaving-artist's fans, friends, and critics. It couldn't have been predicted by most -although a select few will say they saw it coming. Still, both groups have been struck with severe heartache, begrudgingly knowing that the swiftly snatching maw of this beast we call the web, has forever stripped us of a true pal.

All new fursuit makers, are you ready?Something that has been going around in my head for the past week as I've watched a ton of new makers jumping out of the woodworks, eager to take on commissions. Making suits is great and can be a great hobby, but for those that are wanting to continue making them beyond the Hobby mark, ask yourself these questions...All new fursuit makers, are you ready?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
1. Do I have the time to dedicate to this?
On average I will work 12-16 hour 'shift' days making suits, 6 days a week. I will take a day or two off to loosen up and relax, but perhaps ever 2 weeks or so. To keep up with the demand and the work load it takes a ton of my time, often sacrificing fun events such as the movies or a bon fire.
2. Do you have the space?
I started working off of my bed, then out of the spare bedroom. Small projects don't take up space, but larger ones certainly do. Do you have the space needed for furs, tools, cutting, sewing, and other things of the sort?
3. Do you have the dedication?

So as many of you have noticed, Ive become less and less active, and will eventually, as time goes on, leave.
Nothing has been bothering me here, nothing has occurred to make me decide this, though another friend of mine deactivated.
I havent had the time that I used to have, and DeviantART is becoming less appealing to me, now just a site in which I am reminded how little attention I give my friends on here. So, a message to those friends now, before I end up not saying them at all.
Not just my friends, but to everyone.. from the good and the bad, Ive seen moments in which I regret, moments in which I relish in.

All though he was tired from the long voyage, Stoic could not quell the growing excitement with in him. He could not wait to see Hiccup.
As his thoughts circled on Hiccup, he felt a heavy weight press down on his shoulders. Since Hiccup's defeat of the Green Death, their relationship had steadily started to mend itself. But constant relapse's haunted Stoic every time he looked up to find Hiccup was not in the room. On more then one occasion, Hiccup had returned from flying with Toothless only to get a harsh reprimand from his father. Stoic shuddered, as he recalled the day Hiccup finally spoke up in response to his anger toward the flying duo.

Can A Christian Answer These Questions?Now before anything I want to be clear I am not trying to be disrespectful or hurtful to anyone. I strongly believe in peoples' right to believe whatever they want and not be insulted or punished for it. Instead I am genuinely curious about these questions and whether they can be answered. I myself am an Agnostic Atheist (meaning I think there probably isn't a god but I'm not 100% sure) but I am willing to change my mind if evidence comes along to suggest I should.Can A Christian Answer These Questions?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I would also like to say that I don't consider the Bible to be direct evidence as there is nothing to suggest it is reliable outside of itself and it has been edited many times.
Anyway, the questions are:
Why would God send people to hell if he loves us?
Surely a loving God would not want to torture the majority of society forever, and would have better ways of dealing with people not suitable for heaven (like reincarnation for a second chance, staying on Earth or just plain death with nothing afterwards).
