Interview with *kevinbolk
<thefluffyshrimp> Welcome to ASKtheARTIST. My name is *thefluffyshrimp and today I have the great privilege to interview *kevinbolk, a hilarious and talented comic artist and creator of many popular works on deviantART.
<thefluffyshrimp> Thank you for presenting us with this opportunity to interview you, Kevin.

My Original Character ProfilesWell, I know some of you are still waiting for Chapter 3 of "'Twas A Wonderful Life" (it'll be coming very soon, rest assured...) and for me to resume "Fly By Night" (again, that'll be soon), but first, I'd like to begin that OTHER project I mentioned in my recent announcement: my very own original fiction. You've seen me mention in my fanfics time and time again that I was an original fiction writer for many years; but I ended up giving it up when my long-time co-writer grew tired of writing and gave up on it. But now seeing how successful my Raccoons fanfiction has become has inspired me to try giving this another go and seeing how everythiMy Original Character Profiles1 year ago in Short Stories More Like This
My Personal Love Letter to Walt DisneyWhat Walt Disney did for me was what Edd Gould did for me. Both had to take on massive responsibilities and even risked their own lives to make the people that looked up to each of them happy and satisfied.My Personal Love Letter to Walt Disney2 months ago in Stories & Vignettes More Like This
I think what made Walt Disney such a pioneer of the twentieth century was that he was always focused on bringing the world into the next century. He never believed in looking to the past, and for the majority of the time he was always glancing over the fact that he would die one day, but still acknowledged that he would. And even if he won’t live to see the twenty-first century, he felt he should at least get the chance to make it g

She had been shot a few hours before. She wasn't sad that she was dying in the streets, or the fact that she would go to Hell. She just didn't care. Sol blinked the rain water from her eyes, staring ahead, as if expecting something or someone to appear. She huffed and began to shake. Her wound was infected, and she was catching a cold in this weather.She knew this. Sol whimpered in pain as she tried to stand, which she didn't do.

Love...WIP i guessLove.....Love...WIP i guess1 year ago in Emotional More Like This
Love is something that makes you smile and sometimes completes your life sometimes love is amazing but then sometimes Love isn't filled with happiness. When you fall for someone who has perfect eyes,personality,and physical appearance...you tell them that you like them,they reject you because "they hate what you like,they hate your nationality,etc.". Then you feel upset and think "I wanna die,...i wanna kill myself" and people that you know just tell you "move on...." or "he/she is a *insert random curse here*"
"I Love you" three simple words but hard to say....

What could be wrong?

Please don't be sad

But sadly I'm only one girl
But the least I can do is
Start with you and
Maybe one day that world.

The little girl lets a slight blush cross her face as she loses herself in thought.

And if it were anything like all these movies told her... she too would have a happy ending one day...

EPISODE 8 THE TERRIBLE DEED
Before the Doctor saw the death of Emerald Night, before he took off to Appleloosa in search of old mare's tales, before he was far too late to save a dear friend, the day had started like any other. Applejack and Twilight were seeing the Doctor off as he got ready to make the trip.
"Now y'all be safe," Applejack smiled as she shook the Doctor's hoof.
"Oh we'll be just fine," He assured, "and you, Twilight, you best be keeping an eye on Ponyville while I'm gone."
"Will do, Doctor!" Twilight grinned.

"What is that beepy lighty thingy, Doctor?" Pinkie Pie asked gleefully.
"That's a distress call," The Doctor replied, "and a strong one at that! It's calling from the year," The Doctor checked the monitor, "two thousand forty seven. That's a pretty recent year compared to our destination. What do you say we stop by and take a look see?"

On a lovely summer day in the world of Equestria, there laid a lovely and peaceful village called Ponyville. The village was home to many colorful and unique little ponies, both male and female, that each have their own special talent they are known well for. Each pony puts their talents to good use in order for Ponyville to run smoothly and in harmony. These ponies only appear in three different species. There are regular earth ponies, magical unicorns that can perform spells thanks to the horns on their heads, and flying pegasi who soar as graceful as birds and are in a sense the meteorologists of their village.

I had just sat down to supper at Baker Street with Sherlock Holmes, when I was summoned by Mrs. Hudson to receive a package at the door. I glanced at my pocket watch, surprised that a package should be delivered at such a late hour, and then stood and walked to the door. I returned to the table a moment or two later, admiring the new set of medical scales I had acquired by mail order, when I noticed that my silverware was askew and my meal of roast beef noticeably absent from the dinner plate.

Otunga, followed by a trail of members of the Corre and the New-nexus, marched down a hotel hallway. Ezekiel walked behind Otunga and occasionally whispered something in his ear, which Otunga would not respond to. Mason Ryan kept to the left of Zeke and cracked his knuckles as they continued down the hall, his eyes darting back in forth, like he was looking for something. Slater and Gabriel trotted behind Mason, shoulder to shoulder, almost as if they were glued together. Their fingertips slightly touching. Not close enough to look like they were holding hands, but touching all the same. Husky and Mcgillicutty, walked in the back.

"Make me, loser." She flicked the middle of my forehead and laughed as she walked away with her posse following in suit. I watched her, quite amused.

The persistent idea that it was such, commonly spread by adults who are clearly suffering from a serious sugar deficit, is a symptom of the unfortunate tendency of the boring and dull to claim that the traits of their cardboard-flavored lives were, in fact, the trappings of 'adulthood,' and anything that tastes good, is fun, interesting, explosive, shiny or cool is the exclusive property of children, and not worth diverting one's attention from the financial pages to notice or pursue. Such people usually spend a lot of time planning to become wealthy by careful investment in oatmeal stocks and unsw

In the darkness I see you.
Strong. Beautiful. True.
With a sweetness through and through,
And eyes of blue that makes me rue,
The days I never noticed you.
With open eyes you're miles and miles,
Far away; to my decitful wiles,
I cannot say I tried to cheat
Your awesome beauty had them beat!
Your insightful love, though far apart,
Made me rip my monstrous heart.
Inside of me there had to be,
The man you wanted to set free:
The Prince of Swords, his heart exposed,
Afraid of course, but then he chose
To love you back, never willing
To take it back, always giving.
His love to you and only you

The end of all this pain
