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
Roleplay List for 2015Hello everyone. In an attempt to make it easier for people to connect we thought that it would be nice to have a list of people who actively roleplay. How this list works is that we simply put a link to your page in this blog entry for all to see so current and new members can see who is available to roleplay as oppossed to just randomly picking someone from the list. If you want to roleplay with people on the list just send them a note to determine preferences, when and where you will chat. We will "not" post messenger tags or email addresses here just the link to your DA page to protect the privacy of our members. If you want to be included on the list just post a comment to this blog entry.Roleplay List for 20154 years ago in Personal More Like This

“Sometimes we lay aside our own troubles when we wipe away another's tears.”

his life is not easy; a winding, sometimes whimsical, sometimes tragic journey that ultimately finds terminus in the same common destination for each of us. No matter the brave, fierce constructs we build and serve that would have us believe we are each one of us all alone as we make this journey, we make our way toward the end of all things side-by-side in our community of the living each day defying death. Our paths may be wildly divergent—the way of the hungry and impoverished traveling the same timeline with the grotesquely indulgent, the very best of us side-by-side with the most evil of us; but all headed for the same fate: dust.

Dean Winchester (without the flames) and features**Dean Winchester (without the flames) and features6 years ago in Personal More Like This
As you may have noticed, I've just posted a new deviation devoted to Dean Winchester, one of the heroes of the CW show Supernatural. In my fan art the character is surrounded by flames, a reference to his little stay in hell However I think that the "no flames version" is not bad either If you want to check it out, it's on my scraps. Just click on the miniature below and you will be face to face with Jensen Ackles.
The guy gave me some hard times. I had to draw his face 8 times. I almost went nuts but I don't give up easily even for a stupid fan art. It took me one week but I'm pretty happy with the result. I hope it looks like him and when people saw my fan art they immediately recognized Dean Winchester from SPN.
As we talk about Supernatural it is time for a little fan art feature. Here are, from my point of view the best SPN fan arts on

The Hobbit. Jacksonised or: Pimp my Dwarf!UpdatesThe Hobbit. Jacksonised or: Pimp my Dwarf!4 years ago in Personal More Like This
As I read the Hobbit to my son, as Smaug lies buried under the waters of the Long Lake and as Elves, Dwarves, Men and Orcs are drawn to the Lonely Mountain by greed, I stumble over promo photos of the Hobbit http://www.herr-der-ringe-film.de/v3/de/news/tolkienfilme/news_72192.php and am reduced to disbelief.
Of course, I should have known. The target audience are the "Lotr" fans, the ones who have never read the books (probably tried, but gave up after "Concerning Hobbits"), who can't even be bothered to spell out the title of what they call their favourite book (or movie), who whooped with glee when Legolas surfed down the stairs of Helm's Deep on a shield or when Viggo, Orly and that alcoholic of a Dwarf kung-fu'd their way towards Théoden, and whom Jackson expects to be clamouring for more of the same in The Hobbit. He couldn't have made it a children's movie, no, of course not.

Elves are not just pretty humans with pointy earsMost fanfiction authors are not even trying to model a different psychology. Here you go, the quotes from Tolkien's letters that basically explain it.Elves are not just pretty humans with pointy ears1 year ago in Personal More Like This
'Their temptation [unlike Men tempted by fear of death] is different: towards a fainéant melancholy, burdened with Memory, leading to an attempt to halt Time.'
'The Elves represent, as it were, the artistic, aesthetic, and purely scientific aspects of the Humane nature raised to a higher level than is actually seen in Men. That is: they have a devoted love of the physical world, and a desire to observe and understand it for its own sake and as 'other' – sc. as a reality derived from God in the same degree as themselves – not as a material for use or as a power-platform. They also possess a 'subcreational' or artistic faculty of great excellence.'
Add to this: very high level of control a mind has over a body, centuries of experience, and the rough non-industrial world they live in (where you're either discipl
