A Note on the SFTT Before Last (SFTT #59 Spoilers)So, QUITE a few of you commented on Search for the Truth #59 being all like "BUT HANDY IS THE DOCTOR'S SON TECHNICALLY" or something to that effect.A Note on the SFTT Before Last (SFTT #59 Spoilers)3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'd like to clear that up for you now if I could, and at least give you my opinion on what Russell tried to explain to us.
Thanks to Russell T Davies, the whole 'Handy' situation doesn't make much sense. RTD claimed that Handy was half Doctor, half Donna, but he's obviously like 80% or at the very least 60% Doctor. He doesn't seem to have any of Donna's memories or identify himself as Donna in any way. He's the Doctor. He looks like the Doctor, acts (mostly) like the Doctor, dresses like the Doctor and likes the same ladies. Now, no one was terrifically clever in Journey's End, so it's a bit hard to tell if he's as clever as the Doctor. I mean, he ran at Davros like a bit of an idiot, but at least he was clever enough to build the thing he was going to throw at Davros' face or whatever. So let's just say he's quite clever and that wasn't a
Rumour controlEver since shortly after BroNYCon January, ugly rumours about me, and about the con, have circulated over and over throughout the Internet. (They have been accompanied by frequent LGBT-bashing attacks and bigotry.) This isn't a coincidence or the random work of disinterested trolls. It is a deliberate and prolonged smear campaign.Rumour control3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Shortly after BroNYCon January, five staffers made a power grab, attempting to obtain financial and logistical control over the con. I did not let them seize control. They walked; only two returned even temporarily to the staff. These now ex-staffers have been leaking documents and spreading lies and distortions about me, and about BronyCon, ever since. Their aim was to destroy my reputation and that of the con.
When I was on the staff myself, I wasn't allowed to react to any of this. I was under tremendous pressure from the staff to ignore these rumours. But the people spreading them are very persistent. It's late March, and the rumours are still swirling. A

My Best Motivational TipWhen I become overcome with the guilt and shame and fear as a result of my constant procrastination, I have one trick to get me off my ass that works every time.My Best Motivational Tip3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Now, lots of other people and blogs and whatever are all like "look how lucky you are" and "puppies and rainbows" and "if you get it done now, you'll feel better" and lots of other positive shit. While all this stuff is true, I'm still playing Assassin's Creed II for like four hours a day. It doesn't motivate me at all. I still don't want to write a 500 word essay on the subtle differences between the book and the film adaptation of The Road that's due, like, tomorrow.
So here's what I think of.
"Michael Bay wants me to fail."
Insert your own celebrity arch nemesis if you want to, but basically choose someone so crap that it makes you angry. Preferably someone who's getting paid buckets of money to do whatever they do to piss you off.
Competitive nature and the desire to prove your chosen asshole wrong should take over.

Cthulhu is Still Calling
Written By techgnotic
Having been thinking a lot about the origins of our globally held Dragon mythos in a recent article Reptilicus Infernicus, I couldn’t help but notice the Cthulhu legend was always lurking at the edges of my mind as I was researching the subject matter.
The Enemy at the Gates, the “Other”, forever lurking in the darkness and plotting an invasion most evil and an enslavement most hideous, is probably the original seminal “narrative” that was born when humans first acq

Souffle: New Polymer ClayWe all have a favorite brand of polymer clay, but some of us use Polyform's brands almost exclusively (Sculpey, Premo, etc) because they are more readily available where we live. So it's not surprising that there's some excitement about Soufflé, the new product made by Polyform, released just a couple of days ago on April 30th.Souffle: New Polymer Clay11 months ago in Art Features More Like This
I wanted to write an article for us miniature food crafters, to summarize what it means to us. If you have already tried it please share your opinion! Also let me know if you want me to write more articles about other brands.
Characteristics (taken from Polyform's page):
It's lighter than regular polymer clay, but not as much as Sculpey Ultralight.
Great for those of us that create jewelry, specially earrings. Other than that, I don't think it'll make a lot of difference, really small objects could actually benefit from being a little heavier.
They claim that it's perfect for caning. <
One Myth I Wish I Could Dispel"Feminism means you can't like sexy things"One Myth I Wish I Could Dispel2 years ago in Personal More Like This
After doing a series of comics standing up for women's rights, there's a lot of really negative rumors going on around me right now. Most of which point to the hypocrisy that I use to draw fetish artwork and that recently I made pin-ups that were "sexy" in nature. Because, of course, if you're an artist who stands up for women's rights from that moment on you're not allowed to EVER draw women in a way that might be construed as potentially "sexy," lest you be labeled a hypocrite.
As I've mentioned before in previous journals, I really can't stand this mentality the internet has of polarizing extremes. You've always gotta be in one extreme or you're in the other. There's never the possibility that you could be in the middle like, you know, a normal person would be.
I understand why that is: it's easier to point out fallacies and bitch and whine about people when they fit into nice neat black and white spec

Another day gone. There were only three customers to stop by her shop today. First was a flustered middle-aged woman, plump, with frazzled hair and too much makeup, asking frantically for another wrinkle removing potion, after insisting that the previous one she had gotten from a new young witch down on Porter's Street hadn't worked.
She liked that girl. Such promise and energy for one so young. Yes, that one deserved a bright future.
The next was a young man, wearing a disheveled sweater hanging off of one shoulder, wrinkled pants and tennis shoes. He insisted on a love potion, that she (a girl he mentioned but had not named) was clearly meant to be with him, she just didn't know it, and needed a little push.
I bet she's a nice girl, poor thing.
When she refused to make him the potion he starting shouting and waving his arms angrily, nearly knocking over poor Vervain, and breaking several of her poti

I'm not sure if it is because I am thinking more about Thanksgiving lately (and how much I would kill for a turkey...or an oven to cook it with), but I have had recipes and cooking on the brain recently. And so I have begun developing a little idea for a contest. About cookies. And Hetalia. With prizes. Interested?
My idea was to revamp my old Hetalia cookie cards with a nicer, cleaner format. Add new pictures of the characters, pictures of the finished product, more recipes and characters, etc. and put them together into an actual cook book, which would be available for sale online. Revamping and cleaning up, I can do. But, as anyone who knows about my current situation knows, I can't bake cookies since I no longer have an oven.
So here is where the contest comes in!
For each of the existing recipes, I would like a picture of cookie that matches.
Simply bake a batch of cookies and take a picture of the finished pr

[THANKFULLY.] So, This contest is just something random I came up with a while ago. ^^ I want anyone to try and make a picture of any of my couples in my gallery. If the couple is in a fanfiction I'm writing I may feature it in the story if it fits at all. I'll list some couples that I know are in there. Not all of the characters are mine, obviously. I want credit given to the person who owns the other character if it's not a character from an anime series or anything like that.CONTEST [UPDATED]2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm adding into the contest, so that writers may have a chance to participate as well. You can try to write a story for any couple of mine you know of. Or you could add a story in the description if you want to make a picture as well. But that's completely up to you. ^^
Also, I'm going to say I'd like you to try and base the picture or story off of a song. ^^ Any song you like. It's your choice.
