So what did we all think of Deep Breath?I personally loved it. Some of you may know that I'm not too keen on Moffat's take on Who, but I really loved last night's episode. Capaldi was of course brilliant (no surprises there) and I enjoyed that there seems to be a darker edge to him that may or may not be developed further. My love for Clara has also grown by 300% - Jenna acted her heart out and the fact that we finally got to see Clara do some teaching was a personal highlight (I hope to go into education myself). What I liked even more, however, was the pace of the story. The story got time to breathe, the scenes were longer (the restaurant scene in particular was brilliant) and the music was understated for a change. I really liked it. It felt more mature than some of the other episodes we've had recently. The only thing I'm not too happy about is this Missy character - the fact that she calls The Doctor her "boyfriend" just screams "typical Moffat female villain" to me but perhaps further appearances will make me change mSo what did we all think of Deep Breath?3 months ago in Personal More Like This

After a 3 year absence, the Holiday Card Project returned in 2012 and was more successful than ever! Over 2500 deviants from 60 countries participated this year, with more than 3500 cards received. With such an excellent response, we wanted to ensure we were spreading the love as much as possible. We asked for volunteers to help distribute cards to their local hospitals, and with the extra assistance of a few super deviants, we were able to distribute cards to 23 hospitals around the world!
Most hospitals were comfortable taking the cards and distributing them to patients on food trays or through hospital volunteers. While we aren't always able to interact

JohnSu goes to AX 2013Hey guys, sorry I took so long! This year I'm going to try something a little different and not Flash-dependent. I wasn't really sure how much I was gaining by making the pages squiggly and separated by animated transitions, so without further adieu, here's my report on this year's Anime Expo, now with alt-text! (hover mouse on image for commentary)JohnSu goes to AX 20131 year ago in Personal More Like This
My biggest regret this year was being too busy and not getting around the artist alley more and visiting people and panels. Thanks to everyone who visited, and sorry to everyone who I didn't visit (or visited only very briefly)! I feel really rude in retrospect. I also feel like I didn't really get to see much of what AX had to offer this year by confining myself to my table for most of it.
Next year I hope to have some sort of book-type product at my table, but knowing myself, I will probably either give up or miss deadlines again and you'll see a repeat of the first two images in the report.
MAN, I sure got tired of drawing myself.

Legend of Korra: Costume Design!One of the neat things about being the lead designer of a show like Young Justice is getting to interact with the fans through sites like this one, seeing the awesome fan art you guys do is a big inspiration for myself and a lot of the other artists and writers on the show. It really keeps us motivated knowing that you guys and girls appreciate the characters and stories we are creating. Along with great art my other favorite aspect of fandom, and easily the most hardcore representation of it, is the cosplayers and their dedication to show accurate costumes. So with SDCC right around the corner I thought I would share a little something interesting with all you Legend of Korra fans out there, as well as cosplayers in general. Last year at around this time my good buddy, Joaquim http://2-cents.deviantart.com/, who is a co-executive producer on Korra, asked my wife, she is a clothing designer by trade, to create a show accurate Korra outfit to be worn by the official model representing tLegend of Korra: Costume Design!2 years ago in Personal More Like This

I AM PREGNANT.First of all this journal is going to be about pregnancy, teenagers and different stuff that I think people should know and they have to think about it before to do anything related to boys/girls, sex and this kind of things.I AM PREGNANT.11 months ago in Personal More Like This
Nowadays it seems like people have sex too early. And when I say too early, it really does.
I have been watching lots of videos and different stories in youtube about teen moms these days as a result of my interest of knowing how people react to pregnancy when they are teenagers and they are not even teenagers.
I have seen that aparently it's really common to have sex at the age of 12 and 13. WHAT THE FUCK? And the most shocking thing was the reasons given by the teen moms, they excuse to say I got pregnant. They say "I was ready, I felt ready". WELL, YOU WERE NOT READY AND YOU STILL NOT READY.
At least in my case, my first menstruation was at the age of 14. 14. And I remember that I wasn't ready, I felt like omg I'm a true woman.

Self-Injury Awareness 2013 Fears vs DreamsThe FactsSelf-Injury Awareness 2013 Fears vs Dreams2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
March 1st is a day that calls attention to a sensitive subject that takes on many meanings and forms for people. Self-injury, or self-harm, is the act of deliberately harming oneself physically, usually as a mechanism for expressing distress or coping in difficult situations. Self-injury is commonly associated with cutting, but can also refer to burning, scratching, bruising, bleaching, overdosing, some forms of hair pulling and picking, and breaking bones. Binging and purging may also be considered self-injuring behavior.
The reasons behind self-injury and the people who self-injure vary greatly, but one thing to keep in mind is that it does not matter what culture, ethnicity, gender, or age you are: there are people who have injured themselves from all walks of life. Triggering events like bullying, trauma, abuse, school, work pressures, bereavement and difficult relationships can all contribute to the distress one feels that leads them to self-injure, but

Doctor Who is a British science fiction television programme produced by BBC. It depicts the adventures of a Time Lord, a time travelling, humanoid alien with two hearts known as The Doctor. He explores the universe in his TARDIS, a time-and-space-travel machine that flies through the time vortex which exterior appears as a blue British police box. Along with a succession of companions, the Doctor faces a variety of foes while working to save civilisations and help ordinary people.
