the cliffWe walked north on the beach until we could go no further.the cliff3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The north end of the beach in front of the hotel ends with an outcropping of rocks that protrude into the ocean for a hundred yards. Two hundred yards? I don't know. My senses seem to have dwindled over the years or are lost entirely at times.
We climbed up the highest rock and sat, talking about the time we braved the waves and rocks closer to the shore to get to another private beach farther north. This time there was a sign saying not to attempt such a crossing.
Looking down from our perch it occurred to me that we could just jump off the cliff into the sea and swim to the private beach. Probably would be easier.
Eleanor knew I was thinking about it. She pointed out a big rock just below the surface. Hmm. Not there. A little farther out. The cliff is a little lower. Hmm. Water looks dark and deep. Look, we could dive straight out, not down, we don't want to hit any rocks. Then we go around that bed of kelp and straight to th

Sick of the BitchingThis is an angry post. Because shit just got real.Sick of the Bitching2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I am getting very tired of the constant whining and crying by bronies when they don't get their way. Fans in general can never be 100% pleased, I know I play the Sims, but screeching like babies about alicorn Twilight (I have heard way too much bawwing over such a simple thing that most of us saw coming from episode 1), or the realization that Derpy is not coming back, or Hasbro CADing fighting is magic. Hasbro lets us bronies get away with a LOT of stuff, and we take it for granted, then when they think we go too far, or decide to evolve the show in a different way, bronies actually make DEATH THREATS to the writers?! And harass Lauren Faust? And embarrass us to the point where you don't even want to associate with the culture anymore? I can't honestly see why they would make a petition to use copyrighted characters without permission. Think logically.
I do love this show, even though todays episode was pretty so-so, and it's my favor

CharismaI just read this and I think it is so true:Charisma3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Here are the 10 habits of remarkably charismatic people:
1. They listen way more than they talk.
Ask questions. Maintain eye contact. Smile. Frown. Nod. Respond--not so much verbally, but nonverbally.
That's all it takes to show the other person they're important.
Then when you do speak, don't offer advice unless you're asked. Listening shows you care a lot more than offering advice, because when you offer advice in most cases you make the conversation about you, not them.
Don't believe me? Who is "Here's what I would do..." about: you or the other person?
Only speak when you have something important to say--and always define important as what matters to the other person, not to you.
2. They don't practice selective hearing.
Some people--I guarantee you know people like this--are incapable of hearing anything said by the people they feel are somehow beneath them.
Sure, you speak to them, but that particular falling tree doesn't make a sound i
dogswhen i walk tasha in the morning we always run into little babies in strollers who often want to pet the doggie.dogs3 years ago in Personal More Like This
tasha is friendly and affectionate, and we always stop.
but I always tell the baby, hey, tasha is a friendly dog, and it is o.k. to pet her, but not all dogs are friendly like her, so be careful.
once we were on our walk, and a german shephard that would always bark at tasha got loose.
he came running across the street, right towards tasha, without making a sound, and we stood there, tasha's tail wagging.
the german shephard proceeded to go straight to tasha's throat and viciously attacked her. It was so sudden and shocking. I started yelling "whose dog is this, whose dog is this" and I waited a few seconds for the snarling to stop, but it escalated. The shephard moved to her hind quarters, and I instinctively realized that he was trying to cripple her and get her on the ground so he could really savage her.
so I just started hitting the shephard on the head, not hard at fir
Of fanon and canonYou know, a lot of folks on dA tend to use these journals not just as places to write stuff to keep folks in the loop, but as their own personal soapboxes. It's kind of annoying, really; so I tend to try not to rant in these if I can avoid it.Of fanon and canon4 years ago in Personal More Like This
But bronies, let me tell you something. You are making it so hard for me right now.
Let me start by saying that I love canon. Canon is why we're here. Without the canon of the show, we would not have come to adore these ponies that we spend so much time on. Without canon, this fandom has no base, nothing to stand on. I get that! As such, I have a healthy respect for what canon brings us with each amazing episode. But here's the thing:
I love fanon, too.
I love the depth and richness that this vast group of creative ponies manages to bring to an already amazing show. Without the fanon, I know I wouldn't be half as involved in the

A letter directed at defenders of Molestia:
I don't mean to sound accusatory here; I understand that it's easy to fall into this line of thinking, of "Oh this is okay, I can laugh at this" because of how certain actions are portrayed in fiction.
I, myself, once upon a time, thought it was really funny when a girl "agressively flirted" with an unwilling boy (i.e. the Kanker Sisters of Ed, Edd, 'n' Eddy)... until I learned that females could sexually harrass males. And not only that, but many people will either ignore or laugh off real-life cases of female-on-male sexual abuse. Now I can't watch episodes of EEnE with the Kankers without feeling sick.
Yes, morally ambiguous - even downright depraved - characters can be done right. Dr. Venture and Beetlejuice are just the first exa
RespawnHe held his ear to his friend's chest, waiting for the heartbeat he would wait an eternity to hear again. Just one more time. The REDs found no reason to kill the poor man, he was already killed on the inside. He stroked his friend's stomach as tears drained the color from his face. His glasses fell from his face, disabling his ability to see. If it mattered, it didn't to him. The dawn was already upon him. He no longer cared for anything any longer.Respawn3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Each word ever spoken to the man from his gargantuan partner drove into his skull and pounded on the great doors of his mind. His sanity now sat on a divided line. He realized every word they ever spoke to each other mattered. Each spoken and unspoken word screamed its own words of sorrow and love.
Minutes passed before he came to his senses. He sat up and looked at his dead friend. There was no way he would live without the Russian. He struggled getting the pistol from his beltloop. As he struggled to work his arm,

Before anything, just allow me to tell just how much I have adored and cherished the love, kindness, support and friendship I have gained from all of you who cared to view what I'd drawn.
Doing these silly (And usually illogical/disturbing) comic-strips and images has literally been one of the highlights in my life, as cheesy and cliché as that may sound, I swear, it's absolutely true. Ever since way back when I started with my couple of watchers right up to this moment with over 19'000 watchers, breaking the 1'000'000 pageview milestone and having amassed over 10'000'000 hits, logging into this account and seeing many, many supportive remarks and friendly comments, watching the favourites rise steadfastly on each deviation, seeing others willing to try improve their own, or return, to drawing (Despite the fact that I still do not wish to be titled as a
Changing the world through musicSomeone recently brought up an interesting point as they left a comment on one of my YouTube videos. They argued that my talent wasn't very rare, and that everything I've done has already sorta been done before--that I'm not really pushing any boundaries or doing anything new. Tone is often lost or misconstrued over the internet, but it seemed to me that the person leaving the comment was insinuating that I was somehow "less" of an artist, or not quite deserving of praise, simply because I wasn't pushing some sort of boundary with the music I made.Changing the world through music3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I have a pretty thick skin, but I'll admit that negative comments bother me. They bother every artist. We do what we do to make others happy, and if we fail in that endeavor, it makes us feel bad. Any artist who denies that is either lying, or not in it for the right reasons (in my opinion). That being said, the guy's comment on my YouTube video... kinda bothered me.
Crystal Fair - Ponify Finland - Competition!Now, exactly one year before the Convention, we have decided to announce a little competition here in deviantArt!Crystal Fair - Ponify Finland - Competition!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So, the theme of the Competition is, you guessed it, Ponify Finland!
Now, let me clarify that a little bit; You are allowed as much artistic liberty as the title gives you. Your job is to pick basically anything related to Finland and apply a Pony on it. You can use our mascot Aurora or even create your own OC, and put them in a Finnish situation, like letting them enjoy a nice Sauna while speaking on a Ponikia phone. Alternatively, you can pick a well known Finnish band, ponify the name of it and change the members to ponies... Or even simply pick a Finnish sight, such as the Mannerheim statue in the middle of Helsinki, the capital city of Finland, and change him into a Pony version of him. Everything else in between and beyond is allowed as well!
We will have some well known, but yet to be named, Fandom Community members to go through all submissions
A defense for Princess CelestiaNOTE: This is not intended to attack anyone. Please refrain from flaming other people for having different opinions.A defense for Princess Celestia3 years ago in Personal More Like This
In my vision, Princess Celestia is apparently the most hated/disliked/disregarded pony character among the good guys in MLP:FIM. And she also receives a mass amount of false characterization and crude joking from the community.
I find it very difficult to search for her on YouTube, Deviantart, EQD, Google images, ponibooru, without stumbling upon several videos/deviations of Celestia being trollish, tyrannical, cruel, sexual deviant or just an all-out depraved monster. Of all the cartoon characters i've seen so far, i've never seen one being so fanonically butchered as Celestia is.
Here are some arguments that gave origin to all the "Celestia abuse"
She sent Luna to the moon
Now i think i understand why people are so strongly focused on this argument; specially because they think it was too much of a "cruel" fate

All these mane and tail styles come in the pattern.
And here are two of the three wing styles in the pattern (the third are simple folded wings) :
The pattern also includes pieces and instructions for making a magnetic attachment to "pin" the pony to your shirt so it can't fall off your shoulder when you wear it. It's pretty sweet.

*Wow, she looks so beautiful with her mane like that.* Cheese thought to himself.
*What am I thinking? She ALWAYS looks beautiful.* Cheese hid behind a tree and just watched her for a while. Then the butterfly came close to the tree and Pinkie went near the tree and bumped into him.
"Cheese?!?!" Pinkie said in shock to see him under her.
"Hi there Pinkie! How have you been?" Cheese asked her not knowing what to say.
"I have been good you?"
"Oh i have been great!" Cheese replied.
"So do you like my mane? Rarity did it for me!"
Cheese couldn't help to droll looking at her.
"Y-you look amazing...." Cheese said stuttering.
"Um Cheese are you ok? Do you really think I'm THAT beautiful? Cause i am really not."

Banned/Trolls: advice on how to stop them.Recently my friend has been banned from the site for defending his friend from trolls. They reported him for sexual misconduct; It brought to my mind how easy it is to false flag someone and get them either suspended or kicked off a site entirely. A similar problem happened about a year or so back on Youtube.com, wherest a hackertroll named CONJOPI was false flagging popular Let's Players into getting them kicked off the site. A few channels even when into "lockdown", giving the troll and supposed team nothing to go up against them with. Eventually the problem was fixed after about a month or so, and so far no one has done any serious damage.Banned/Trolls: advice on how to stop them.4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Which brings me to my next point. Trolls thrive off of conflict; the best way, some people think, is to deprive them of contact so they get bored and move on. A few trolls I have met personally go as far as stalking the person and doing anything in their power to get the user banned. All the popular sites, including twitter, Facebook, Youtube and
