+Atention! ALL HETALIANS!+It has come to my attention that many people are beginning to leave the Hetalia fandom. The reason behind this is not because the anime/manga is bad, or it had been cancelled, or anything having to do with Hetalia in general.+Atention! ALL HETALIANS!+1 year ago in Personal More Like This
No, it's because of the fans.
Nowadays, words like "hetaboo" and "hetafags" are what most people associate with the Hetalia fandom. "Why is this?" You may ask. Well, Hetalia fans (or "Hetalians") were not as decent as they once were.
Instead of being polite about their fandom, they shove it down your throat.
Instead of respecting ships they don't like, they bash on those ships, saying things like "NUUUUUU!!11! MY SHIP IS SO MUCH BETTER BECAUSE blah blah blah."
Instead of loving the show in general, they obsess over the pairings.
This, my friends, is the outright definition of "weeaboo".
If this sort of behavior continues, more and more Hetalian begin to leave the fandom. In fact, it's already begun. Hetalians have already grown tired of their weeaboo-filled fandom
Un-ghosted Lucien Lachance in Skyrim ScreenshotsA while back I encountered the bug where the Spectral Assassin is missing the ghost effect when you summon him. I thought I'd take some screenshots so that everyone can have a better look at what Lucien looks like in Skyrim.Un-ghosted Lucien Lachance in Skyrim Screenshots2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I didn't spend too much time trying to capture cool poses or get great shots. But maybe later when I'm feeling more creative I can take some nicer screenshots. Anyway, click on them to get the full size.
Just for fun, I tried removing Lucien's hood using the console.

The Pied Piper
In the tale of the Pied Piper, we have a village overrun with rats. A man arrives dressed in clothes of pied (a patchwork of colors) and offers to rid the town of the vermin. The villagers agree to pay a vast sum of money if the piper can do it – and he does. He plays music on his pipe which draws all the rats out of the town. When he returns for payment – the villagers won't cough up so the Pied Piper decides to rid the town of children too! In most modern variants, the piper draws the children to a cave out of the town and when the townsfolk finally agree to pay up, he sends them back. In the darker original, the piper leads the children to a river

Yeah... I guess you've heard of him...
And even if you haven't...
There was at least one time where you had him coming your way...
And he comes back over and over...
This is the most common name given to that certain time where artists just sit there and become unproductive against their own will. Yes... against their own will! Artists have art block and writers have writer's block... it's still the same thing, though. It must be avoided at all costs, but once it arrives, it doesn't leave until it is satisfied of seeing your misery. Minutes... Days... Weeks... Even up to months! Art block claims the productivity of thousands of artist at any given moment and there's no escaping its ensnaring tentacles.
Oh yes... search up "art block" on deviantART and you'll find some rage comics. I picked a few favorites for me to share that actually go hand-in-hand with this article! ^__^

WARNING: Beware of ChargebacksJust adopted a character and was notified about this issue. I've seen the same issue with several other deviants, so I figured I'd spread the word.WARNING: Beware of Chargebacks4 months ago in Personal More Like This
Just sending a warning out to everyone, and possibly a way to avoid this in the future.
A person by the name of Nyanperonya :iconnyanperonya:
has recently been adopting and purchasing commissions from various artist, and once the item has been delivered......
They get a chargeback. (Via paypal)
At first I thought I was the only person, but after stumbling along and finding all this, and looking into my paypal, I see in total I lost $19. Although its little compared to other artist, I am still quite upset and want to let others know of the ordeal going on.
I took the time to search through my paypal and notes to find who the user was..... and noted them. My reply seems to be a simple copy paste everyone received.

Im sure you all know about the little bastard Elliot Rodgers who thought he had the right to go gun down those girls, what pisses me off more than anything else is those who defend the shit he pulled. Depression, bullied, asperger's or what ever other fucking excuses there making up is a damn joke, he was nothing more than a little stuck up rich boy bitching because he couldnt get things his way. Claiming hes the alpha? supreme? has some right to a woman's body as if its his right? fuck that, 'rotting in loneliness'? Ha! its just really Fucking stupid that people treat him as a Hero against feminist...and typical it all gets turned on the woman for not giving him what he wanted then those people would be alive, hell forbid they get a choice huh?

Women as Sex ObjectsWarning: Imma 'bout to rant.Women as Sex Objects1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
First off I'd like to point out that I'm not a raving feminist. I acknowledge that women are not equal in western society (despite corporate efforts that seem to be more about statements and false enthusiasm on the subject rather than actually taking women seriously) and I don't think we will be equal for a long time, if ever. Just how it is. Unfortunate (from the perspective of a woman), but just how it is.
ANYWAY. Here's my rant. I'm really tired of a female character being undermined by her being half nude. Really, really tired of it. And I'm not talking about artistic nudity, I'm talking about ass-cheek flashing skirts, bikini tops and little else (I'm looking at you, Japan).
I love a strong female lead, but they're so rare. Writers find it so hard to create a complex female character; they're either so brave and outspoken that they become butch and unattractive by design, or they're a sex object. A hopeless damsel in distress or someone who can hold th

Every culture around the world created gods and other mythical beings by mixing and matching fanged and taloned animal parts—e.g., enormous eagle heads on lions’ bodies—human beings have always seemed to need to believe there are powerful and usually quite vengeful supernatural beings lurking just beyond the candlelight.
