Dragonized, chapters 0,1, and 2.Chapter 0- through the fire and flames.
Fire and smoke... that's all that I could remember...
...Everything was hurting.... where was I? The smoke had started to clear some, but my eyes couldn't seem to focus on anything, it was all blurry... something green, I could see something green everywhere, and brown, below all the green was brown.
Red danced around me, coming from parts of gray stuck in the brown... why were my ears ringing so bad?
“Holy... are you seeing this Tanner?” Comes from off to my right, it was tinny, must have been the ringing, I try to look that way and everything flashes red, and I let out a roar of pain, but something was wrong, it was wispy, no strength to it, and my chest burned.
“It's alive too, damn!” Says another voice, something had started up out in the distance... what was it? Barking?
“Agh, we don't have time for this, they're still hunting for miracle man here. Getting close too.” says one I haven't heard before...
DRAGON CONTEST!!!--(En español más abajo / in Spanish below)--DRAGON CONTEST!!!10 months ago in Personal More Like This
In first place, thanks for all your support, likes, watches and comments, and my apologizes for not replying all of them, they are just too many!
Ok, 3 years ago I made a contest here in Deviantart, and it came out pretty well, we had a lot of participants and amazing pics, it was a huge success, so after all this time, I decided to do it again. Therefore… WE HAVE NEW CONTEST!! Dragons will be the main topic this time. If you want to take part, please send me a note with the title DRAGON CONTEST. Just a note, DO NOT COMMENT, I want to avoid situations like "OMG, this amazing famous artist is going to join the contest! I have no chance...".

* A Guide to Reporting Art Theft *I copied this from :iconthe-Nutkase:'s journal entry because I thought this was a really good guide on how to deal with art theft. I hope that it helps you guys too* A Guide to Reporting Art Theft *1 year ago in Personal More Like This
"I've seen quite a few cases of art theft recently (involving both my work and other's), and I think it's about time I help out somehow.
So I made this small guide to dealing with art theft. If your art/your friend's art has been stolen, follow this guide and you'll settle matters quickly and easily.
Important point to consider
NEVER comment on the stolen artwork or the userpage of the art thief. More often than not, people comment saying things that are as harsh as possible and are completely inappropriate. Yes, 9 times out of 10 the "artist" is just a troll messing with people, but if you don't watch what you comment, you CAN be warned/reported for harassment. Keep that in mind.
The exception to this rule is if the stolen art is being sold somehow, of which a comment will discourage people from buy

The VoidWhen I lost my faith in god, it was no great personal cataclysm. It simply fell away. My fall was a snake sloughing its skin or a woman removing her coat on an overwarm day. Faith was simply something I no longer needed. But I can't pretend there wasn't a void. There was and there still is. There may always be. That void is what I feel when I think about dying. Do not mistake me, I am not afraid of death. Not at all. Not even a little bit. But I regret. I regret that my story will end. I regret that my loved ones' stories will end. I regret that I won't see others' stories through. Most of all, I regret that I won't see how the big story ends.The Void1 year ago in Personal More Like This

- Smoking was everywhere, from airplane interiors to hospitals to the neighborhood breakfast bar. And its negative health effects were not widely acknowledged.
- The typical family had a working father and stay-at-home mother. Society and economics was geared to support that lifestyle.
- Gays were well-closeted and few dared to peek out. Those who did were often openly shunned.
- Conditions like ADD/ADHD and Aspergers and many others were undiagnosed and even bipolar disorder seemed less that understood by most.
- Most houses had a single telephone (though some people illegally added another independently purchased phone off their single land line).
- Most homes had a single TV – B&W and not usually larger than 20". You ha

Issue No. 2|Archives
If the severely acne-scarred face and coarse exterior brought on by his alcoholic and depressed life was the book cover of his being, then Charles was the ultimate book that could not be judged by its cover.
The exquisite collection that was this everyman artist’s art consisted of thousands of poems, hundreds of short stories and six novels—mostly all wrenchingly autobiographical, mostly all about moments of epiphany and grace in an otherwise miserable and unhappy existence. The perfect explication of the common man's deepest truth; it's not easy to be here.
Unvarnished and brutal blunt force trauma underlined with hope, beauty, longing, and love.
Therein lies the power of his poet

“When I left high school, I had all my plans to go to college, but I had no money. And I decided then, the best thing for me to do is not worry about getting money to go to college — I will educate myself. I walked down the street, I walked into a library, I would go to the library three days a week for ten years and I would educate myself. It’s all FREE, that’s the great thing about libraries! Most of you can afford to go to college, but if you wanna educate yourself completely, go to the library and educate yourself. When I was 28 years old, I graduated from Library.”

From The Dragon's Mouth – Twenty-Seventh Edition
It struck me by surprise again yesterday how small most of us really are in the grand scheme of things. I was sitting in the car waiting to get home from town, when I suddenly noticed that dozens of cars were passing us every second in other lanes. Now, it wasn't the dozens of cars passing by which really led me to have any unusual philosophical ideas….nor did they directly facilitate any creative thinking in my mind. Cars have always been on the highway; but what made me start to think about all of this in a brand new way was when I began to think about the drivers of the cars, if I had ever met them or would ever meet them, and, if I did, would ever be able to identify them as being owner of one of the cars that sped past me.
This brought in an entirely new way to think of things. It made me realize how wrapped up most of us are in our own personal and sometimes petty lives…concerned about things which matter to us,
How to Become a WriterNeed help on writing? Take a look what I found on "How to Become a Writer"How to Become a Writer2 years ago in Personal More Like This
(This is not my words)
1. Consider all of the options. Not everyone can create a blockbuster novel. Anyone with passion might be able to earn a living from writing. Copy-writing is probably the highest paid skill on the Internet. Article writing is in great demand for providing content for websites. Creative writers are in demand to bid for projects every day. So the first step in how to become a writer is to research all of the options.
2. Plan using logic and desire. Write the way you want, but decide whether or not you want to rely on the income from your writing. Not having a regular job will allow you to focus on your writing, but it's very unlikely that you'll be able to depend on it for at least a few years.Then you might get bored.
3. Think about what you want to write, instead of what you want to get from writing. You won't get anywhere if all you're after is money.
4. Be prepared to work odd hours -- y

Positive Traits of Aspergers SyndromeMany of those with Asperger's syndrome have a number of positive characteristics, including integrity, intelligence, endurance, and freedom from prejudice.Positive Traits of Aspergers Syndrome3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Often referred to as "autism lite" or a "shadow syndrome" of autism, Asperger's syndrome is relatively common, with up to 1 in 250 people in North America meeting the diagnostic criteria (Brasic, 27 April 2011).
Those with Asperger's, or "Aspies" (a term coined by Liane Holliday Willey in Pretending to Be Normal) are high-functioning in the sense that they are better able to maintain social relationships than those with autism. Unlike those with autism, Aspies often score highly on measures of verbal intelligence.
When contemplating disorders such as Asperger's syndrome, there is a tendency to focus on negative aspects, such as difficulty in reading social cues. But many of those with Asperger's syndrome have positive traits as well, which has led some people to question whether it should be viewed as a difference rather than a diso
