Plated DessertsPlating can be such an underrated art form at times. I've often heard it dismissed as 'boring', 'sterile' and criticised for all looking the same. Maybe we just have a tendency to lust after the rustic, messy desserts. Maybe we like to tear down what is seen as a hoity-toity way of presenting food. Or maybe we just don't see the skill and technique that goes into plating.Plated Desserts2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Skillful plating up of food requires a good eye, a steady hand and a flair for design. Careful consideration goes into everything from which way the dish is offset, to the type of garnishes on it, to the type of plate it is presented on. It, in turn, necessitates learning a whole host of other skills and techniques to create the garnishes that adorn the dish.
These deviants show off their plating skills with a host of delicious desserts.

Venus"O'er the ache of mauve shores erotic winds billow long & deep... Her scent drips from the sky onto bare skin, bejeweling my senses like a tapestry of blushing petals besieged in rhythms of passion.... Whispers of untamed rapture beckons my lips as I descend into her gaze, unto the sea of bliss where I shall forever drown."Venus2 years ago in Personal More Like This

On GhostsI've been meaning to write about epistemology and science for quite a while....On Ghosts3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The problem is that there really isn't a single simple place to dig in and get started. Why not? Because all of what we'd call "human knowledge" is connected; if you intend to explain one piece completely you'd eventually wind up trying to explain it all. That's why the 6-year-old child's tactic of asking "why?" is so successful and annoying.
kid: "why is the sky blue?"
mjr: "because of diffraction in the atmosphere."
mjr: "well it's got to do with how light's frequency changes when you bend its path."
mjr option 1: "don't ask me, go dig up Richard Feynman."
mjr option 2: "it's time for you to go to bed."
But there's a really wonderful thing about scientific knowledge and its connectedness: it doesn't contradict itself. Not anywhere. Or, rather, not for very long; contradictions mean something is wrong with the theor
Hetalia Short Story Contest~!Sup, all Hetalia lovers (and pasta eaters, of course) ^^Hetalia Short Story Contest~!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So I've decided to throw out this random contest for everything Hetalia... so I went with the theme of Fanfiction!
That's right, peeps. Any fanfiction about anything to your heart's desire. (Or just the fact that I can't find a good theme and I wanted to see what people would come up with) *insert trollface here*
So basically, it's a free-write contest about Hetalia. But I've got a few rules *already cringes hearing the upcoming boo-ing*
1. No hardcore lemon, please. Not such a fan of whoever stealing anybody's strictly secured vital regions or whatever... no sex, but I'm cool with making out/ kissing. Sweet kisses always receive brownie points from me. ^^
2. Yaoi is totally fine. Or yuri, whatever. Just don't make it too... eh... explicit. But a little FrUK wouldn't hurt. (Total shipper)
3. OC's are fine. Also CharacterXReader is cool too. As long as they are not the Mary-Sue type. Those kinda want me want to puke... on them.
The Fairy Tale, A Lifelong ResonanceA thousand years tradition of scaring children at bedtime continues for children of all ages. News of the discovery of 500 “new” fairy tales collected over 150 years ago [link] in Germany and locked away in a forgotten archive has me thinking about the enduring importance of these narrative treasures in the lives of human societies worldwide.

I don't make good decisions. Keep that in mind, too.
6:30am - Wake up (dead tired), and get ready for school
7:00am - Finish preparing and get to car
7:10am - Leave for school (after a freaking 10 minute wait for my parents and brothers to get to the car)
7:22am - Arrive at school after a quiet/hectic/argument-filled car ride
7:23am - Storm into school with a miserable/pissed-off expression and ignore ANYONE who attempts to make vocal/physical contact
7:25am - Arrive in homeroom while wondering what my "friends" were going on about... wishing I could go back... maybe?
7:40am - Leave homeroom while again putting on the miserable/pissed off expression while ignoring

Second! My DA story c:
Okay, so two years ago here I was on google, and I was browsing through some fan art that was off of DeviantART. I went on pages of Artists and I got really into DeviantART then. I talked with my mom here a week later, asking if I could join DeviantART, and might I say, I do not regret it at all. I was so excited to join DeviantART! My very first watcher was I think my friend Emily, or my Boyfriend. I'm not 100% positive on it to be honest ^^" But whom ever was my first watcher, thank you ;u;~~~
Anyways, I was really excited to join. And I still love it on here. I'v improved a lot on my Art work sense I first joined, and still am. I will admit, the drama on dA is a lot at times, and the days I had my "moments", but I wouldn't trade any of it in for the world, because I met so many amazing people on here! (Which I will tag~)
All I can say is, I love you all on here so much, and I'm glad to be there to su
