*Rule 34 and SlashYou know, I've been involved with quite a number of fandoms for quite a long time. One thing I see time and again is what is universally referred to as "Rule #34", which is the rule that states "If it exists there IS porn of it." Well, sure fine whatever. I'm not into porn, but whatever floats your boat I guess. There are more than a few "Rule #34" applications that I personally find disturbing, to say the least.
However, this also brings me to the whole "Slash" thing, whether it's fics, art, whatever. There seems to be a number of people who actually do not understand what the actual definition of "Slash" really is. Well, I'll make it very straight forward and to the point:
Slash = any fan story/art containing a pairing between same-sex (usually male/male) canon characters.
FemSlash = any fan Slash story/art containing a pairing between female/female only canon characters.
OCSlash = any fan story/art containing a pairing between same-sex characters where one

Uhh, so I kinda don't understand that though I only friended her and didn't know her at all, she started noting me telling me that Bonita was all this stuff. But I know for a fact I have seen proof and I have known her longer than her, she isn't like this. And to those of you who will post rude comments on this Journal will be marked as spam and possibly blocked. I'm not being immature, but I am tired of this nonsense because she has also done this to several other friends of mine and Bonita's. I posted this cause I'm tired of her saying things that are untrue.
Again I will say that I know for a fact that Bonita isn't like this at all and when I friended :iconRavette2004: she noted me without me saying a word to her at all and started talking bad about her and saying a lot of untrue things. Bonita told me what she did truthfully and had apologized
A very long drive towards hope. . .There are often times I sit back and reflect upon many things in my life as I go about my daily duties. I think of those I have met and those whom I call friend, brother, sister, companion, family. I think of their struggles in life, the good days and the bad, and I often wish I could do more to ease their pain and give them comfort as well as congratulations and encouragement. These are the good people who deserve good things, and yet life has done them great harm by the hands of spiteful individuals. They are strong Sparks despite the pain, or perhaps because of it, and they stand firm in their belief that they have the right to live and be who they are. They are the ones I hold dear to me, they are the ones I lift up and give support to when they need me, and in whom I see a reflection of myself; their kindness and generosity, their strength and perseverance, their conviction and determination, and their protectiveness and compassion for others. It is they whom I embrace as friend,A very long drive towards hope. . .1 year ago in Personal More Like This
*What REALLY Defines a MarySue/GaryStu Character?Frankly, I ignore most people's craptastic Mary Sue/Gary Stu OC's because they are so badly written/designed it makes me utterly sick as a long time RPer in live action and tabletop RPG's. This crap people are doing on DA and calling it Role Playing, that's childish BS compared to what I've grown up doing. And sorry to burst people's delusional bubble here, but yes, your whatever-its-name-is characters are Mary Sue/Gary Stu characters. Want to know why? The traits that define all Mary Sue/Gary Stu characters include the following:*What REALLY Defines a MarySue/GaryStu Character?1 year ago in Personal More Like This

*LiesYou know, when people lie, they don't seem to realize that it catches up to them. They will get caught in those lies sooner or later. They may think it's funny or amusing to lie to others, knowing that not only does the lie hurt others, but when the lie is exposed and the truth is revealed, it hurts others as well. You who lie think it's all fun and games, you who think it's funny to lie to people and hurt them, you who think it's amusing to play pretend and string someone along and then turn around and betray them, you who are so proud of yourselves for ripping someone's heart out... Guess what; wait until you find something you truly believe in, wait til you find someone you truly love, and then watch as that person turns on you and destroys your dreams and hopes, rips your heart out and stomps on it. It's not so funny when it's done to you, is it? It's not so amusing when someone lies to you or steals fr*Lies2 years ago in Personal More Like This
