Friends Should, Friends Shouldn'tDISCLAIMER: This is not meant to be taken as "rules" to constrict friendships. These are merely guidelines from my own observations for healthy relationships. Friends will make mistakes and friends will fight, this does not make your friends bad people.Friends Should, Friends Shouldn't1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Friends Should: Understand that life and other things get in the way sometimes.
Friends Shouldn't: Expect you to pay a certain amount of specific attention to them consistently despite what's going on in your life.
Friends Should: Always pick up right where they left off whether it's been days, weeks, months, or years.
Friends Shouldn't: Give you a hard time about not talking to them when they didn't even bother to tell you they were upset about it until they exploded from bottling it up.
Friends Should: Be honest and trust each other.
Friends Shouldn't: Withhold feelings and qu

Fortunately, a lot of people do not like her and just note me when she moves.
Her current most used accounts are...

"Shh.." Skylynn whispered. She pulled her finger from her lips and put her right arm down by my left. I wanted to grab her hand and say that everything's going to be all right. But it wasn't. Her father was coming through the doorway, drunk as ever. Straggling behind him were the laughs of a drunk woman.
As always, Skylynn had told me her father comes home drunk almost every night, with a woman he's met at the bar or club, and brings her home. Skylynn hides in the pantry, filled with warm beer, wine, and foul smelling cheeses, of the kitchen while her father, and the unknown woman, stumble into the house and drag themselves upstairs to his room.

.: Factions + Jobs :. (WIP).: ABOUT THE FACTIONS :..: Factions + Jobs :. (WIP)3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The Circus is divided into 4 competitive Factions.
Every single Faction has it's specialities and only certain people can join them. They all have their own personal tent for their attractions, but these are smaller than the Main Tent. (Cirque Map can be found here.)
The Black, White, Red and Diamond Faction stand in competitions against each other - they strive to earn the most fame among the others to become the 'Ruling Faction'.
The Ruling Faction decides where the Circus is located and which attractions are given in the Main Tent. Also, they set themes and events for the period they are ruling in.
The fifth Faction, which does not participate in the competition, is called the 'Dream Faction' and acts neutral, controlling and judging the competition of the 4 other Factions. However, only Cirque Leaders can be part of this Faction.

deviantART is applying to manage .artdeviantART is applying to manage .art3 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
deviantaRT is applying to manage a new Top Level Domain called .art
Top Level Domain (TLD) is the technical name for ".com," ".net," ".org," or ".fr". These TLDs are controlled and issued by a worldwide organization called ICANN, short for the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. When ICANN announced that it would accept applications for new TLDs, deviantART quickly realized that someone would try to nab ".art."
DeviantART is committed to have the .art TLD in the hands of representatives of the arts; people who know something about the Internet and the way art is presented and enabled by the Internet. Nobody has more experience with this than the deviantART community that we are all building, participating in, and sharing with each other every day.
In order to secure .art into the right hands, deviantA

Why I dislike The Fault in Our StarsSo, I’ve been getting a lot of asks over the last few months asking why I strongly dislike TFIOS by John Green as much as I do. And for the most part, all the recent askers have been surprisingly polite, considering the more aggressive ones I’ve received in the past on the subject. Anyway, I’ve answered a bunch of them separately, but I’ve decided to condense all of my theories, opinions and arguments into one succinct post.Why I dislike The Fault in Our Stars1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Now, I'll be blunt about my feelings on the book by copying and pasting my response to a recent ask upon the nature of my dislike.
“The story is incredibly formulaic and unrealistic, the dialogue is pretentious and stilted, cancer is romanticized and I fucking hate that arrogant ass Augustus waters with a burning passion. I liked Hazel and Isaac all right, and I guess his writing is good, but the cardboard cut-out nature of all the other characters and the complete lack of realism heap
