Hi, my name is Rapunzel"I spent most of my life in a tower, until one day Prince Charming found me there. We spent a night together, but he just left me next morning... Bastard!Hi, my name is Rapunzel4 months ago in Personal More Like This
After that I explored the world outside. It's a scary world, but I heard that there will be a great ball at the castle of cinderella... a chance to see him again. Even if she would be there as well. But I was late and also lost my puzzle. I asked people for help... and that was a weird experience."
The murderer of Cinderella was caught. Over 800 detectives helped to find them. It was exhausting and it was fun. And sometimes very confusing! I hope you all enjoyed it as well and had fun to explore the different characters and their tasks.
Here is the story/task of Rapunzel http://sta.sh/0264qx3odpn3
When i worked on it, i thought that finding 9 puzzle pieces would be too easy.
I was wrong.
It was really wondrous how different people would interpret the task. Would you have known what to do?
All i wanted was to have people find 9

Something fun! SBARGHey, Homestuck fans! If you have wanted to play SBURB or SGRUB, then here you go:Something fun! SBARG1 year ago in Personal More Like This
http://sbarg.tumblr.com/ SBARG is an ARG (Alternate Reality game) in which you basically make your own session in SBURB and SGRUB!
You can team up. Here is where you can enter: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/embeddedform?formkey=dFRtcGRCOHJfTGdkR1VRZHJ4blJBTFE6MQ
Put your real info in there - don't worry, it won't be given out! Then put down a Pesterchum handle or Trollian or Skype if you don't have either (basically any IMing agent) in the second box!
Then hit go. On the prototyping, you can collect two items in real life, don't freak out about it, it's not on the computer or anything.
This is all that has been done so far, but the game will continue at 10 PM EST (don't worry if you're not up around that time, you can enter later.)
If you want to find team members, feel free to comment down here with your Handle or Trollian or IMing agent!

Red Riding Hood- Solution! Hello everyone!Red Riding Hood- Solution!4 months ago in Personal More Like This
This journal was written for Halloween-HQ's murder mystery tale, where I played the character of Red Riding Hood. Well done to those who found it- it was hidden on my profile within the quote "who's afraid of the Big Bad Wolf?"
"So you must be the detective? I've dealt with the likes of you before when my father and grandmother were murdered, you didn't help much then so I have little doubt you'll find out who killed dear Cinderella. Me, I've found taking justice by my own hands much more effective...
I know you're checking out my dress. A red ball gown for little red riding hood, not exactly original is it? Cinders made me choose it the perfectionist cow. I couldn't have any other colour could I? It wouldn't fit the fairyland way... You know what's worse? My name is actually Scarlet Fernsdale, not Riding Hood! I'd kill my father for giving me that horrific cloak, if he wasn't already.
MINI-CONTEST!Hey guys! Welcome to my Mini-Contest! I always wanted to make one, so here it is ~ \o/MINI-CONTEST!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
You have to draw my character Scarlette, one of my OCs! I will choose the most original and creative drawings! And since I made her when I was like 5, I never imagined a personality for her, so you can draw her perky, shy, wicked or whatever you want, it's all about headcanon! XD
Here's a sloppy reference I very quickly made! If you want more drawings of her, send me a note! (Yes, her skin is LITTERALLY white like the snow xD)
(EDIT) Another less sloppy reference here! :
The winners will get:
1st place - I'll draw for you a full picture with 2 of your OCs!
2nd place - I'll draw for you a full picture with 1 of your OCs!
3rd place - I'll draw for you a full picture of your favorite character!

Aurora's SolutionThinking outside the box (or perhaps clicking randomly), many clever detectives found my stash link hidden in my deviant ID. I originally thought of hiding it in the word horror, but decided against it because it seemed to easy to spot a blue link in bold, black text. So I hid the link in a place usually overlooked. "I'm sometimes moody, irrational, erratic, and panicky. I also have the tendency to overuse exclamation points, emoticons, and this "~" when I'm happy or excited." Yup, it was right there! It was actually really amusing to have received some confused notes and comments from lost little lambs and frustrated notes from those who found it can felt like kicking themselves.Aurora's Solution4 months ago in Personal More Like This

Community Week - Translating TutorialsHello! I hope you're enjoying this Community Week so far. It is an honor for me to be able to contribute once again.Community Week - Translating Tutorials3 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
In this article, we shall discuss tutorials and how to translate them. Ever felt you just had to share an awesome tutorial, but it was in a language your friends or followers couldn't read? Requesting a translation isn't always an option - so, if you can, why not translate your favourite tutorials yourself? Here is some advice for you to get started.
Contact the author of the original tutorial and ask for permission to translate
The very first thing you need to do is contact the author. Before you start translating, you have to ask the original author of the tutorial for permission to do so. I cannot stress this enough: a translation is a derivative work, therefore, it can't exist without the permission of the author of the source material. Please be very clear about what you want to do: What language do you want to translate into? A
Winners of the Halloween Murder Mystery Contest!What happened?Winners of the Halloween Murder Mystery Contest!4 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
We are pleased to announce the winners of the Halloween Murder Mystery Contest that was run through Halloween-HQ! First, let us tell you exactly what happened.
The killer was the Queen of Hearts. Ruthless and cold, she set out to kill Prince Charming for repeatedly spurning her unwanted shows of affection. She used a thin knife and struck when the lights went out during the castle ball. Quickly realizing what she had done and that she had gotten the wrong victim, she fled across Fairyland, through the dark forest, and back to her own castle.
Well, we originally had 3 prizes: 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place based on scores from the characters you visited. (You didn't know you were being scored, did you?) But, when we ended up with 825 participants, we figured we needed to up the prizes a bit, too. Moonbeam13 over in Community Relations is a goddess, and she made the prizes even BIGGER!
How to not get 'trolled'This is basically what passed through my mind when I saw a journal about the same subject in the journal portal lately. I thought it was a joke but sadly not. This is not a guide but a hit-me-in-the-face-common-sense statement.How to not get 'trolled'2 years ago in Literature Features More Like This
This is based on my *insert how many years the internet has been around for* years experience in different online communities.
Doing nothing 'bad' won't change anything
You will avoid making forum threads when you're new?
You will avoid starting arguments?
You will keep your political agenda and religion to yourself?
What next? How about not uploading anything in case a big meanie troll comes? How about not commenting anywhere in case the big meanie troll sees it?
Whatever you do, wherever you do it, face it-this is the internet. You'll see a few trolls here and there. How about ignoring them or...

A thought.Death. We are who we are because of our experiences and influences, right? What we think of ourselves, other people, other things, crap beyond, etc. That stuff influences our choices, and our choices further build on us, right? Just brain activity. Electrical impulses. That's what keeps us conscious. What will happen when we die? When all those electrical impulses just...stop, how on Earth would that work? Yeah, the whole light and a tunnel, but if it's true that there's nothing beyond that, how could all our previous thoughts, experiences, choices, affections, hates, the part that makes each of us a unique person...just fizzle out? We wouldn't even be able to comprehend death, because we wouldn't be there. We wouldn't be able to see our life flash before us, because it's all gone. And we couldn't even think about that, because we'd be gone.A thought.2 years ago in Personal More Like This

If I accept I'll add you to my commission list.
I don't really make commission lists (used to have one but its not updated). I make lists via the commission forms (NOTE) I receive and mark them if they're still unfinished. So make sure you send commission forms in a NOTE so I can keep track. This is also the reason why you won't find any commission lists from me. If you'd like an update about your commission, NOTE me.

Hansel and Gretel's SOLUTIONFor those who were unaware, I played Hansel and Gretel in Halloween-HQ's 2013 contest. I loved it, and I hoped everyone involved had as much fun as I did.Hansel and Gretel's SOLUTION4 months ago in Personal More Like This
This year, the contest was a murder mystery. (Some may remember that last year the players retraced Dante's path into Hell.) Cinderella was brutally murdered and the players took on the role of a detective to solve the crime. Each player started with the King. They had to find a hidden Sta.sh link on the King's profile page and perform a task. Once they succeeded, they were given two more deviants' names (who were playing various fairy tale characters) to investigate. The pattern repeated until they reached the final character. At that point, they would have enough clues to figure out "who done it."
My fairy tale character was Hansel and Gretel. (Yes, I know that's two characters. They're a package deal. Shut up.)
The first trial a player faced was finding my Sta.sh link. I have since taken down the myriad of p

Hellow again my dear friends and watchers!
Yes, that's exactly what you think it is. The legendary FAQ I had promised to make like... 4 months ago. I'm sorry for the stupid delay (which is nothing new when it comes to me, eh?) but some of the questions you guys made required some dangerous quests to my old wardrobe, looking for what was still left of my ancient art work xD
This FAQ is organized in 3 groups of questions: 1- Personal Questions (about me, my work, etc), 2- Drawing and Art Questions (tips, how did I learn what I know, etc) and 3- OMFA questions (about the characters, plot and etc).
ANYWAYS! No more delays now, I really hope you enjoy this FAQ, and that somehow, I hope it helps you in some way!
What style did you start out with as a kid? sonic, anime, etc
When I was a kid, my style was a big mix. My characters had some sort of anime eye (because I believed that would give them a lot of expression), mixed with a very undefined style. Later on, when I

It's a really great thing to know that so many people like what I do, and it's a good thing to remember in times when I feel down.
Sometimes I look at all the comments you guys leave me, and it makes me really happy to know so many people enjoy what I do, and encourage me to do more.
If it weren't for everyone here I probably wouldn't be where I am today,
and I hope that you guys will stick around with me to when I hopefully become one of those really amazing artists.
Thank you guys, you all mean a lot to me, and I encourage you to keep doing what you love as well!
Don't give up, because there will be and probably already are people that like what you do,
and if you keep working at it there will be even more because they will see how hard you try to do something you love, and you will get even better.

first of all, thankyou for all the suggestions in my last journal, youve gave me lots to have a look at and keep busy c:
okay so hear me out
I was thinking not many people seem aware of Serkan ridge, though the fanbase It has (im hoping i can call it a fanbase) is very surppotive <3
and I thought, since im planning on getting the first few pages done digitally soon- the ones for print
the first few pages show two dogs getting killed
(and im sorry Db but for the sake of advertisement this sounds good X3)
Ive decided instead of the original plan of two random dogs getting killed by etch, why not let the fans have a chance?
so ve decided to hold a contest.
the winner gets to 'design' or have two of thier characte
