I'm Popular, now What?A lot of people in deviantArt want to be popular, but when they achieve their aim they discover that the fame brings with itself some consequences and responsibilities that they don't like. How can you know these consequences and what do you have to do with them?I'm Popular, now What?4 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
Well, I'll gladly answer these questions with a few examples:
-Trolls: They are people who looks for attention annoying the others. When they see that someone is popular, they like to attack him/her so this person reacts negatively. Generally trolls are neglected people, they are looking for attention, so you shouldn't give it to them.
If you encounter a troll, you must disregard him/her like if you've never read what he/she had written, besides you should block him/her so that he/she won't write to you again, but you shouldn't talk about him/her in public nor showing the littlest interest.
-Thieves: They are people who feel attracted for the images' beauty and think they have the right to take them to do whateve

No Matter What I do I Love YouIt was another day with the light shining in through the window, slowly tracing up Harleys body, up her red and black nightgown. Once the sun hit her eyes, she blinked and moved out of the way, feeling the warm rays wash over her body. She stared at the costume she had worn for many years. It reminded her. It reminded her of why she was here. Joker. She dropped her head into her hands, closing her eyes. The hyenas were barely stirring. And her thoughts were already in full throttle.No Matter What I do I Love You6 years ago in Fantasy More Like This
Face it Harley, she began talking to herself as she often did. You will never get him. Its just a fact. She said wandering over slowly to her costume, the sunlight glazing over her body as it rose further. She ran a hand down it affectionately, remembering all the sweet little times she had with him. Then she clenched her fist so hard into the fabric that her knuckles went white. The bad times. The good times. She felt like as if she could spend half an hour just crying a

Katara sighed and leaned against the hard chair behind her. She'd been in this small tea shop for an hour waiting for her masked friend to give her the signal to join him. They'd waited in the woods all day; she knew it was because he would be less noticeable at night. They'd managed to make their way through the land much faster than she'd thought.
She credited that to the fact that every time Aang and Sokka had to walk, they always complained. Complaining slowed everyone down.
She missed her brother and her friends. She worried about them almost every time she thought about them, and she thought about them a lot. Thinking back

It was the beginning of yet another long day of training for Aang and his friends in the Western Air Temple, and, once again, it had started with a banished prince dragging a bleary-eyed Avatar out of his sleeping mat for morning meditation, followed by firebending practice. Not the most hospitable person under normal circumstances, Zuko had been especially irritable as of late, no doubt due to the unstable waterbending master that had been following and analyzing his every move, searching for a sign that he was still working for the Fire Nation, and would betray them any minute.

She had known that she was in deep trouble the moment she heard Sokka utter the word quenchiest.
But much to Katara's dismay, it was too late for her.
She had already emptied the contents of the jug of water to quench her thirst when she heard her brother say the dreaded word. She had just finished intensive training under sweltering heat and the cool drink was a welcome respite.
In a nearby section of the Western Air Temple, Sokka was telling Haru about an extremely refreshing drink he had found in the surrounding forests.
I didn't think I'd find it so far from the desert, Sokka was saying excitedly, but there it was, a fat, juicy, little cactus plant, waiting for me to take its nectar.
Is it safe to drink, do you think? Haru asked skeptically.
Of course, it is! Sokka replied defensively, and not just that, it's the quenchiest!

"Zuko!" she yelled, running towards him and she saw that he was gravely wounded. There was a bloody pool next to him. The side of his shirt was torn away reveling a huge wound. Katara knelt down besides him and looked at his pale face. His eyes were closed.
"Zuko, can you hear me? Zuko!" Katara yelled, shacking his shoulders slightly. His head rolled side to side. She put him back down lightly. She sighed, worried. 'He unconscious,' she thought to herself, tears failing down her face.
"I have to carry him home as fast as I can," she said to herself, strong and determined. She got up, wiped her eyes, and picked Zuko up carefully. Painfully at first, she started walking.

It was so nice to sleep on a comfy bed at the end of the day. We had just docked at Jang Hui for the evening and to stock up, so that the girls could be on their next part of their journey. I waited on the side of the deck, with my eye still covered in bandages. I had a small bag with the few things I packed beside me on the floor, just in case I had to leave.
After thinking about how I was going to leave, I told the Captain that my "Uncle and Aunt" were waiting for me, to bring news to them on what was happening in the small "village" I live in. Completely lies of course. I lived in the royal palace, with my family. I was the crown prince of the Fire Nation.

The soldiers moved through the forest, faces grim with the soon to be felt regret of actions they were about to commit. Each man dealt with this in his own way: some pretended that they were going somewhere else, others blocked all thought from their mind, and some were praying for forgiveness for what they were about to do.
But they all wore grim expressions, their faces hard and unfeeling as they marched mechanically through the woods, no thought process urging them on, only the instinct that had been drilled into them after years of military training. They moved as one being, like a fierce beast stumping through the forest, not the

Um yeah, pretty much. Zuko sounded nervous, his heart fluttered as he awaited an answer from his freshman crush. He had spoken with his uncle before he had called Katara, telling him about what Azula said. Iroh had basically concluded that all that Azula was trying to do was to make both his and Kataras lives miserable, and that by following her orders it would only prove to his younger sister that she had control over him. So he had called her. Thank the spirits.
