Smaller dA thumbnail scriptWant to get rid of the absolutely horrendous recent dA update of ugly, massive, unorganized, unprofessional thumbnails that I turned off beta to escape from but IT SOMEHOW STILL FOUND ME???Smaller dA thumbnail script3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Just install this amazing new browser script written by rotane, which not only shrinks the thumbnails back to a reasonable size, but also gets rid of the awkward light-background problem for wide deviations.
THANKS rotane!!!! Please +fave and spread it around if you like it!

Goodbye, CV ^hat!Hi everyone! I'm back to being a `senior member. Today my term as the mod of the Digital Art galleries has officially ended. It's been a great year serving as a dA Community Volunteer and I have been able to feature so many wonderful pieces as Daily Deviations. Thank you every one of you who sent me fantastic suggestions!Goodbye, CV ^hat!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Speaking of DD suggestions... the end of my term obviously signals that I am no longer accepting any. My unread inbox note count right now is 1,789, the majority of which are DD suggestions, far more than I could ever hope to feature even in 2 years... I simply got too many!! I apologize if I did not get to consider your suggestion while I was still a CV, but please let it be known that I will be doing my best in the next few weeks to reclaim my inbox, and I will forward any suggestions that I think are particularly remarkable to the new Digital Art CVs. (As of this post, Negatic is still on, so send suggestions to her!)
Thank you again everyone.

The War of Currents Edison and Tesla’s Electric Feud
Edison VS Tesla
The $50,000 Wager
The story goes that when Thomas Edison’s Serbian-born employee Nikola Tesla told his boss that he could make several fixes to his direct current power generators, Edison offered him a healthy reward — $50,000 — if he was successful. In a few months, Tesla finished the project and asked for his payment. Apparently Edison laughed Tesla off and instead off

dA DDWhat the what?dA DD8 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I–I am shocked. I just want to thank the wonderful community here at deviantART for the Daily Deviation!!
And it seems appropriate the acronyms spell out a stylized "Dad" because my Young Justice fan fiction Bring Him Home was spotlighted:
Thank you for the feature, SingingFlames!! I never expected it, simply from chatting about fan fiction and under-appreciated characters. I'm beyond happy and excited you not only took the time to talk with me—a stranger passing through, basically—but that you also visited my profile and took a peek at some of my writing. And to know you enjoyed the fatherly introspective from a fandom I'm not sure you're even familiar with, it truly means a lot.

Some thoughts on New Doctor's Eve...Tomorrow (Sunday) the world's going to find out who the next Doctor will be. And with that, a spirited debate that's been going on in fandom will probably wind down for a while:Some thoughts on New Doctor's Eve...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
"Should we allow for the possibility that the next Doctor could be a woman?"
At this point, almost every aspect of that question has been talked to death elsewhere (including other parts of my own DA page), and I don't want to retread it here (too much). But here's one of the most interesting (and increasingly common) arguments for why it shouldn't happen, and I want to focus on it for a few minutes. I'll quote it the way it was said by one commentator here:
"If you make him a woman you're taking away an amazing role model for young boys. There have always been great female role models in the form of the companions, but the doctor is one of the only role models boys have who uses his wits and heart to get through a situation, not his fists."

Selkie: The Story. (no spoilers)Well I keep finding myself explaining various plot points or origins every time I post a new selkie picture and corresponding vague blurb, so I thought it would be a good idea to have a central place where you can read up on the story, if you like. The idea is that I'll update the story here when I upload a new illustration, and fill in major plot points which aren't getting covered in the picture, so check back if you're interested.Selkie: The Story. (no spoilers)5 years ago in Personal More Like This
BEFORE I START, I will answer once and for all this question: "Is this from Ondine/Secret of Roan Inish?" Not really, this story is as similar to either of those as they are to each other: they are all from the same mythology, but this series is about characters who do not exist in another selkie retelling. Here is some reading on basic selkie mythology: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Selkie

I realized they may have misunderstood. Gay marriage is now legal in four more states, but it is not mandatory.

My Kingdom for a HorseDespite Shakespeare's vitriolic literary license, even he could not quite find where the king was buried. but an archeological team in Britain today identified the skeletal remains of Richard III - who simply had scoliosis, a curvature of the spine which made him look hunchbacked. For many centuries some people were trying to find his grave and now at last it has been. the skeleton is really slashed about - consistent with the reports of numerous wounds Richard III had gotten in the battle of Bosworth, minus the feet. there are plans to rebury him as he ought to have been buried over five hundred years agoMy Kingdom for a Horse3 years ago in Personal More Like This

What is it about a fictional character first introduced to the public in Great Britain in 1887 that has kept him being reincarnated, with generationally-correct upgrades, over and over again in film and on television? Who is this literary hero whose portrayal over the past century by such past masters as Basil Rathbone and Jeremy Brett to today’s vanguard talents Robert Downey, Jr. and Benedict Cumberbatch has inspired such a continuing outpouring of fan appreciation?
