ROUND ONE OF SIXFOLD LEAGUE NOW COMMENCES
This round will be treated like a qualifier. We want you to show us what you can do, but don't go absolutely all out right at the start! A certain number of contestants (depending on how many participate in this round) will move on to Round Two.
In this round, your contestants will be having a ONE ON ONE BATTLE WITH YOUR FACTION'S ASSISTANT. You must show your character winning for your character to advance. Though the definition of "winning" is up to you! As long as it's clear (a draw would also be considered a victory). No switching Pokemon mid battle. You must pick one Pokemon and stick to it throughout the whole battle*.
*Note on the turn-based style fighting: it is like the games, but not exactly. Basically it just means taking turns, but you are more than welcome to mix it up as well. We won't penalize you for it.
Event 1: The Sixfold BallGood day. Lady Lyra Nightingale of Lochesh speaking. I am here to announce the annual event: the Sixfold Ball. The ball takes place before the tournament begins so the people new to the region of Saros or the faction you have joined may converse with one another as well as the leaders and assistants of the factions. Perhaps you may form lasting bonds: whether friendly or not.Event 1: The Sixfold Ball2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The Ball starts at 7 o'clock so don't be late. It will be held in the grand ballroom in my Manor which has plenty of space for you and at least one of your Pokemon, if you so choose. Just be sure to clean up after it or you might just get a surprise visit from a Gengar or two. Feel free to wander the garden outside the ballroom as well.
Due to the nature of the surrounding area, all Ball attendees will stay at the Manor overnight and leave in the morning. Do not leave the Manor grounds after 11 o'clock or you may not ever come back.
And remember: formal attire only. Dates are not required but are recommended.
Yin's Opinion on Pokemon X and YNote: Kinda rushed through this, so sorry in advance for all the grammatical errors. Will be editing throughout the day.Yin's Opinion on Pokemon X and Y2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's been a couple days since Pokemon X and Y were first revealed to the masses. And while many people were upset about the lack of a Ruby/Sapphire remake, reception has been overall positive. Now that the first day hype is behind us and things have more or less settled down, I'd finally like to give my opinion on the matter while also addressing some of the major complaints about the new games.
I'll start off by saying that I'm incredibly stoked. I've been wanting a fully 3D pokemon game since before Pokemon Black and White, and we've finally got it! True, the cute, little sprites will be dearly missed, but like with every popular franchise, it's time to evolve with the times. Pun intended.
Anyway, let's begin with the starters. There are plenty of mixed feeling about these guys, but I didn't find them nearly as disappointing as the Sinnoh trio, who I still f

Top 10 favorite animated ladies - 7!7) Courtney Gripling from 'As Told by Ginger' voiced by Liz GeorgesTop 10 favorite animated ladies - 7!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
"There's nothing wrong with a little electricity, just as long as you don't get shocked."
I'm part of the 5% of people who watched this show on Nickelodeon and I have to say that its tragically underrated. This was definitely Nickelodeon's version of 'Daria' only with a much more relatable protagonist for preteens. While I do like Daria a lot, I always found the character more comical than relatable. 'As Told by Ginger' filled that void for me as a kid, and once in a while I rewatch the series because of its really down to earth writing. I will review the whole series in the future but for now I will focus on my favorite character from the show; Courtney Gripling.
To those who do not know, 'As Told by Ginger' was a series about a insightful yet realistic preteen named Ginger who narrates her life as she goes through Middle school and Highschool respectively. In each episode they cover various subjects suc

Wohoo! It is done! All the bios of the main RD characters are done! Woo! You know what this mean? Well, I'll tell you!
First, some people have been asking me if I am going to give those bio sheets for any kind of use. Well, I am happy to tell you that yes, I am giving them for free use. I just need to go through the PSD file and check the layers are named right and it is as simple as it can be. (there are MANY layers). I'll also change the fonts as the ones I was using are not common and apparently not free either so I am not comfortable giving them out with the PSD file. So, let me do that first but you can expect the Bio sheet very soon.
As for RD, there is still the minor character bios and especially Elisa's that I need to do but I think it has been long enough... Yes, I think it is finally time to start updating Dear Departed again! I'll catch up where the story is right now, maybe edit some of the old pages (dialog mostly) but yes! RD is back!

30 things to stop doing to yourselfCopy-pasted from Tumblr.30 things to stop doing to yourself2 years ago in Personal More Like This
1. stop spending time with the wrong people. – life is too short to spend time with people who suck the happiness out of you. if someone wants you in their life, they'll make room for you. you shouldn't have to fight for a spot. never, ever insist yourself to someone who continuously overlooks your worth. and remember, it's not the people that stand by your side when you're at your best, but the ones who stand beside you when you're at your worst that are your true friends.
2. stop running from your problems. – face them head on. no, it won't be easy. there is no person in the world capable of flawlessly handling every punch thrown at them. we aren't supposed to be able to instantly solve problems. that's not how we're made. in fact, we're made to get upset, sad, hurt, stumble and fall. because that's the whole purpose of living – to face problems, learn, adapt, and solve them over the course of time. this is what ultimately molds us into the person we b
Nuzlocke-Challenge Awards time!!!So, I've been teasing at it for a while, and now I think it's time to officially open our first awards events! Get excited people! It's time to recognize the best of what our community has to offer. =-)Nuzlocke-Challenge Awards time!!!3 months ago in Personal More Like This
***DISCLAIMER: this awards event is not tied in to the Year-End Extravaganzas held by the official Nuzlocke forums in any way! Different organizers, and different pools of members, as we know many people here on dA are not on the official forums. We've also specifically tried to highlight different kinds of awards to distance ourselves from the Extravaganzas - that's why there are less skill-based awards here and more community-oriented awards - and why we're doing this in summer instead of winter. We're not trying to compete with the forums at all. They'd crush us anyway. X-D***

Yin's Tradelocke RulesetThis is a nuzlocke rule system I came up with awhile back, but never bothered to write down. It's basically a variation of the popular dual-locke with more emphasis on collaborative play.Yin's Tradelocke Ruleset1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Okay! First step, find a friend who loves Pokemon and nuzlockes as much as you do.
Got one? Good! Moving on~
You and your friend will need:
A Nintendo handheld system
Compatible Pokemon games (e.g. Platinum & SoulSilver, Black 2 & White, etc.)
A method of trading (link cable, IR, wi-fi, etc.)
Standard nuzlocke rules apply:
Catch only the first pokemon on each route, cave, ocean, etc.
If a pokemon faints, it's dead.
As far as additional rules go, it doesn't matter what you use as long as you and your partner use the same ones.
Now, onto the tradelocke rules:
After every 2 badges, the trainers must pick 3 pokemon to battle each other.
Winner gets to pick one of the opponent's 3 p

Hey Arnold reviewNow lets talk about 'Hey Arnold' and why I believe its one of the best western cartoons from the 90's. For those who do not know about the show or have never watched it, 'Hey Arnold' is about the life of a group of kids who live in a city thats very similar to Brooklyn. The main character, Arnold, is an imaginitive nine year old with a weird shaped head who lives in a boarding house with his crazy grandparents. As the show goes on, Arnold takes a backseat from the spotlight and the second protagonist Helga Pataki takes over due to her popularity (among other side characters as well).Hey Arnold review1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
On the outside, 'Hey Arnold' looks like an ordinary cartoon but what seperated it from other shows its the content and themes it explores. Its a very character driven/slice of life kind of show which gives it a sense of realism.
*Its gritty setting: Hey Arnold's setting is a city that resembles New York city, the place I was raised in. It does an incedible job in portraying the busy and intimidating atmosp

The whiteness of the clouds left behind by a plane
Draw a line across the blue sky
Always, no matter to where, always continuing
As if it knew tomorrow
In my chest I breathed in a shallow breath
I remember the breeze that blew on my hot cheek
The hands and feet which are bound before the future
Are freed by a quiet voice
So nostalgic that I want to scream out, is
One life, the midsummer light
At your shoulder, swaying, the sunbeams streaming through the leaves
The white ball at rest
The petals which have been scattered by the wind
The invisible river which carries both
Singing while flowing on
Secrets and lies and joy
Are the children of the gods who created this universe
The heart which is bound before the future
Someday, will remember its name
So loved that I want to scream out, is

Nothing to do with the above, but Quentin now has a Tumblr!
Oh yeah, it's a video! Shows some scanner scenes, lift scenes, CG...lookin pretty great in my opinion but there are a few complaints in the comments. No faces though, and a lot of frowning going on with the CG.
New photo! Not high quality, but it's decent and big so it makes me happy. Finally the actors full body...sorta. Close enough.
Oh and since people have been wondering a lot, Odd's actor Gulliver is fifteen.

LINK WARNING TO ALL DEVIANTART USERS LINK
deviantART is known for having issues with copyright and even it's own TOS, and this is not a new thing. Lately it seems to have taken a nastier turn, just as the link above shows. I suggest you all to read it carefully and take a moment to think about it.
This case is only one of many, and if they all are handled as poorly (if you can even call that handling rather than ignoring) all I can see is a rather dark future for devinatART. There are so many art theft cases. Art is being stolen, traced, copied, even SOLD FOR MONEY by people who have absolutely no right to those pictures. And how does deviantART react? If you're lucky or persistent enough the staff might take action and remove the stolen piece. But that's it. There are accounts on deviantART that are obviously FUL
