Why Authors Kill Off CharactersI can actually answer this question, at least for myself. Coming from the perspective of a hopefully-soon-tobe-published author, I think killing off main characters is a sign of maturity as a writer. When authors coddle their characters and give them whatever they want, the end result is often spoiled, hard-to-relate-to characters who get happy endings handed to them on a silver platter. Take Twilight, for example. In all four 400-600 page novels, not one pivotal "good" character dies. And what are we left with? Little character development, no themes or lessons to be learned, and the acute feeling that the books were more like fairytales with all the characters skipping off into the sunset hand-in-hand. Admit it: you remember a book that made you cry more than a book that made you smile. Every classic novel that has withstood the test of time features some sort of death, agony, suffering or all of the above. Suffering builds character. And sometimes, killing a character is necessary fWhy Authors Kill Off Characters3 years ago in Personal More Like This
CONTEST-Represent your favorite movie-[CLOSED]Hello deviants ,CONTEST-Represent your favorite movie-[CLOSED]1 year ago in Personal More Like This
We're 5 student developers and we're aiming to release a movie quizz application on Android.
Find the movie : the concept
Find the movie is a movie quizz, but the enigma is a picture that describes the movie in an original way. The picture will be made of 4 hints, each hint is an aspect of the movie, but because pictures can tell more than words, here's an example about the Lord of the Rings :
This example is a pretty bad example, firstly because it's ugly, and secondly because the dimensions are not right, but it explains the concept, and now, you may have a better idea of what we'll be asking for this contest.

HELLA RAD OC ART CONTEST!! (Money and Art Prizes)HELLA RAD OC ART CONTEST!! (Money and Art Prizes)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Everyone and their dog seems to be hosting a contest, so why not me as well? This is yet another OC art contest, although this time there's more variety to pick from!
The deadline is August 3rd (however extensions can be negotiated)
Edit: Added new anthro character to the list.
Edit: Extended a week upon request!!
What I'm Looking For:
Dynamic pictures! They don't necessarily need to have a background or even be a fullbody picture, but I'm looking for things that really portray the overall feel of the character! This is mainly what I will be judging on. Effort! I'm not judging based on skill, but a well executed piece really stands out! Interactions! This is by no means a requirement, but if you want to include characters of your own or multiple of mine interacting, it's definitely encouraged!
All artwork must be your own.Blood, gore, NSFW and all is completely allowed, you don't need to ask permission
# CLOSED # Tattoo design competition # CLOSED ## CLOSED # Tattoo design competition # CLOSED #2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I got this competition idea from a few other people, I've never done anything like this before
So this competition is for a heart tattoo design to go my right wrist. I have tried to design it myself but I'm still not sure exactly what I want. I'll know it when I see it, if that makes sense :/ I have made a very basic line design for the main elements that want in it. You can use this or start from scratch as long as the umbrella is in the heart and has some sort of scar. I would like something very girly with some swirly lines or flowers/leaves and maybe a dove (for hope) or something 'British Heart Foundation' themed, just something pretty. A line art version and a colored version would be nice but just the line art is fine too. Be as creative as you like and have fun with it
Also I already have a tattoo on my left wrist (see below) so it either needs to be about the same shape/size or completely different.
Mine is the pink one

I filmed this video back in October, just before Halloween, but I ran out of time to edit it. I didn't want to put it up around the holidays, because it just seems weird. So I waited until now! So here is my tutorial for my first design ever!
p.s go check out this picture here I'm playing a little game with my friend who is getting married. Every time someone favourites this picture, she's putting a penny in her Wedding Jar (100 favs = $1)to help save up for the special day! Her mom will also be matching all of the money she saves!

Historical Disney Princesses FAQRather than answering these individually over and over again, I'm just going to leave this here and add to it as needed:Historical Disney Princesses FAQ4 years ago in Personal More Like This
- I'm not telling you which princess I'm doing next.
- I would appreciate it if you didn't tell me what character I should do next, or what you're looking forward to, or what character you hope I'll do! It's very sweet and I definitely appreciate the sentiment, but consider the fact that you're something like the 400th person to tell me about Elsa, or Anna, or Merida- it's not adding a lot to the conversation.
- No, I'm not doing any Kingdom Hearts characters. There's no particular historical precedent, so they don't really have anything to gain from this series.
Are you going to do Merida?
YES PLEASE STOP ASKING sobsobsob
Are you going to do Elsa and Anna?
Are you going to do any more pieces in this series?
Yes! Let it be assumed that I will continue doing these until stated otherwise.

Day of SilenceHello everyone!Day of Silence3 years ago in Personal More Like This
April 20th is the annual Day of Silence. The Day of Silence is when everyone goes quiet for a day to observe the silence forced upon those of the LGBT community. Those who chose to go silent on this day are screaming out louder than any protests. We are bringing attention to those who have and continued to suffer, and we are showing them that we support them. You don't have to be part of the LGBT community to support them. They are people too, and they deserve their rights. Let's band together and fight for those rights on the 20th of April by enacting the most powerful form of protest - withholding our voices from the community.
For every single person you know that is gay, a lesbian, transgender, bisexual - speak up. For every single child you have or could have that is or may be gay, a lesbian, transgender, bisexual - speak up.

Speak up by spending a day in their shoes.

In this video we can see all four Ghouls Rule dolls. Some people are complaining saying that all dolls look ridiculous, weird and stuff like that. You know what people? This is "MONSTER HIGH", the name says it all, if not, it would be called with another name.
I personally love all of their wackiness and their very "Gaga" sense of style (I'm a huge Gaga fan), so I don't have any problem with them, and it's great to see that Mattel has more to give that just a blonde doll with blue eyes and wearing pink all the time (no offence to Barbie fans) I love Barbie, but I also think she's redundant and boring, Monster High has showed several styles just in one single line of dolls and that's what I like about them, different styles, new characters, dark things, I seriously think Monster High was created for me
You can also see the new CAM dolls on the background, there's a boy that look
