Life is a fragile lie.
Death is an inevitable truth.
Meridian lies somewhere in between.
“The scene was solemn. Rain gently pattered against the umbrellas of mourners around a new grave. They’d never expected it could happen to her. Not so soon. The dampness gets the better of them and slowly the mass began to dissipate. Some were more stubborn than others at first, but they too eventually felt the chill. The final person gazed upon the grave one last time, soaking in the moment. Their last moment together, they supposed. A single droplet fell to the dirt. Their contribution to the rain. Finally, they too left in silence.
The rain had died away. Fog thickened, rolling through the trees and enveloping the graveyard in one swoop. Through the mist stood a shadow; human in all ways but it’s avian head. It approached the grave steadily as if not to disturb what slept within. For a while it stood there peering down at the e
Objectification of MenAfter reading through the comments on my last journal about Tropes Vs Women in Gaming Part 2 I noticed a lot of people are angry we're even talking about sexism because (as they put it) "men are ALSO sexualized and objectified in gaming so women shouldn't complain that they are too."Objectification of Men2 years ago in Personal More Like This
And while that's a nice thought that sounds logical at first... any causal observer to gaming and most media today will be able to recognize that the two sides are not equal enough to make that sort of comparison. Here's the difference as I see it: Men are objectified and sexualized, yes, but it's not done for women. It's done for men. The objectification of men in gaming and other media is a self image fantasy FOR men. In other words, both the objectification of men and women are done for the benefit of men.
Not only that but again a casual observer will note that the standards of "beauty" are not at all equal on both sides. Female heros are all designed to be attractive, sexy, thin, sensual, pure,

I started this database when I first started dA over two years ago. I kept seeing these amazing emotes, but I could never remember their names when I wanted them. After putting together a very tiny list, I realized what an epic effort it would take to gather a really difinitive list. And I found out that there were plenty of other accounts that had better lists up already.
I gave up on collecting them, and nearly forgot about this account... Until I started having trouble finding some of the amazing new plz accounts on any of the listings. So I decided to update this site. :iconexcitedplz:

Some Thoughts.Tournament ObservationsSome Thoughts.7 years ago in Personal More Like This
Ive been in art tournaments of the DeviantART sort for a while, observing, competing and administrating ever since July 07. Doesnt sound like much, but I am assured by my friends that this makes me at the very least a Veteran in the Tournament scene. So! With that in mind, Id like to take this opportunity to bitch and whine about problems with tournaments Ive seen, and to praise to the high heavens innovation and whatnot in the various tournies that pop up from time to time. This is mainly to do with Tournament establishment and administration; have a gander if you like.
This was streamlined from Deathdog3000s list. Credit to her! And to my plethora of helpers at RoninRubbish and PCBCChat. Contribute and comment, please!
Be as Fair as Possible.
This should be self-evident. Obviously, your judges in particular should be totally free from bias, and preferably people known in the tournament s
WHEW OKAYWell it's been a day and I think I can respond more eloquently to this, shall we say, situation.WHEW OKAY2 years ago in Personal More Like This
First off: HOLY CRAP I won the first OCT I was ever in.
Is this an omen?
Like seriously, I wasn't expecting to get past the first or second round, because I was with the experienced crowd; the majority had been in an OCT before, and every last contestant was ridiculously talented. Wow.
I'm happy about it, sure, because come on, I had a story I was actually rather proud of working for me. But honestly, I feel like I stole the win from Calla, mainly because I had announced that I was dropping out. Even if it was because of an extension, I feel like a forfeit is a forfeit? I dunno. Then again, Calla had so many drop outs stacked against her, I also feel like it was only fair that I give her a fight?
I'm trying to take this gracefully, but I'm graceful as a duck I'm sorry.
In all, I'm happy my story won out, even if it was sketchy bullcrap that I should have put more effort i

One of the worst things I know is to bring my personal life into dA or infront of people who don´t know me. I´m not the kind of person who enjoy sharing information about myself ahaha ;;

Also, I just heard DA may not be in any kind of financial trouble to begin with. I made this in the assumption that deviantArt was trying to cover up for potential losses but that might not even be the case according to new information.
Lately there has been a lot of uproar on the risk of losing deviantArt entirely if you sign the petition against CORE.
A lot of misinformation has been spread and I need to assert them.
First off, you do not need to worry! Website-based businesses such as deviantArt do not work that way, they do not go bankrupt anywhere near as easily as other forms of business. Also, we do not aim for this. The only reason why we wish for the Core boycott is to make Deviantart listen to us. It has failed to do that for years, and we have finally had enough.
Second, we need to clear up a few things. We do not want to remove what CO

Of course the only thing that went through her head at the time (and she kept repeating it) was "Are you serious? Are you SERIOUS? ARE YOU SERIOUS?!" to which I replied "Yes dear I am." Then the water works fell into play. It was funny though cause right after I proposed to her, and her crying fit was over, the song she requested (Safety Dance) came on. Talk about perfect timing. Yesterday was perfect. Of course all good news is followed up with bad news. I got sick. DAMN YOU KARMA. Oh well, doesn't stop me from being happy.
I love that woman so much :3
