Two months and eight days, 64 chapters plus an epilogue, 134 single-spaced typewritten pages, 74478 words and countless hours later, Everlasting Snow has finally come to a close.
And, to tell you the truth, I have no idea where to start.
Let's start just over a couple months ago, with a girl, a laptop, and a movie. One that changed her life. For the better. One that connected with her on such a deep level that no amount of writing or creating could get it out of her system, and never will. One that revived her love of writing, something she hadn't done in years because it never gained any recognition, she never felt it was good enough, and life events just left her feeling so trampled upon, further deterring her from putting the pen to the paper.
And so, never before so inspired and just recently discovering the world of fan fiction, she opened her laptop, brought up Microsoft Word, and began to write, not helping but feeling that a certain winter spirit (th

A REALLY LONG JOURNAL (but with pictures!)One ordinary afternoon, Waifu Niffy was just pondering to himself, deciding on that night's dinner for when his Hubby comes home.A REALLY LONG JOURNAL (but with pictures!)4 years ago in Personal More Like This
"Hmm, I guess it's lasagna again tonight, huh?"
When suddenly! A dark shadow looms over Waifu Niffy, taking him by complete surprise.
But before he could utter even the slightest damsel-in-distress girlish scream, the ominous shadow disappeared, and along with it-... Waifu Niffy!
Thankfully Fynn, the good neighbor, heard the commotion of broken dishes and toppled furniture and rushed to the scene right away with his trusty crocodile buddy Kuro.
"Ugh great, were those two at it again-...?"
Kuro, being the clever little detective he is, sniffed around the crime scene and deduced that Waifu Niffy had been wifenapped!
"Smells like Earl Grey..." /Sniffsniff
Kuro urged Fynn to call local police immediately!
"Police Grim, Police Grim! Please help! There has been a-"

Writing and Characters in a Mafia-like Setting
Ok, so no one here has ever been in an actual mafia, nor do we want to make it too dark, but as a group we still need to have some kind of plausible standard for exactly what our mafia is like. In order to establish this median, and thus render the plot wholly more realistic, research is needed!
Here I've provided a few links for you to get started. I highly recommend all members, accepted or not, look at this; we will be doing more faction-oriented things later on so it's important to understand the dynamics within each group!

"Overall Painted Look"
"My techniques is pretty much simple and the soft painted look can be achieved quite easily. What I do is:
Using a spot healing brush I remove spots, if any from the skin.
Then use a mixer brush over it using the following values:
Wet: 17%, Load: 15%, Mix: 17%, Flow: 18%, which not only smoothens the skin but also softens it.
At the end of it all, I dodge and burn wherever necessary. Alternatively, I use a white brush of low opacity somewhere between 30-35% and paint over the highlights, then apply a Gaussian blur of 15-16 pixels. and for the shadows I go over them with a much lower opaci

I REALLY, REAAAAALLY don't want you to start commenting on the following people's profiles and/or artwork, at least not because of me since they probably don't even know what they're doing. I assume they're just kids.
I don't know how to start this, hah. I will make it look fun, since I can't do much about it, but I think it's actually pretty sad.
There's a drawing I made many years ago, back to 2008 when I used to be at Asato-Kun, this one:
It's pretty awful, isn't it? It's actually a really bad drawing, hahaha. Well, the point is that my dear friend Tama (LazyTurtle) sent me a message in Facebook with the link to some girl's artwork that ended up being a base of this drawing, but retouched.
I told Tama that I'm used to find this picture all over the internet, since many RPers don't have any respect, hahaha, and well, I decided to use my good buddy Google to find more of the edited masterpieces that
