Recipe 1: Flan in a Cup Flan in a CupRecipe 1: Flan in a Cup7 years ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This
Makes 4 cups of flan
1 3/4 cups of milk
5 tablespoons of sugar
a little bit of vanilla
Ingredients for the caramel sauce:
3 tablespoons of sugar
1 tablespoon of water
Tip from Najika:
Najika's special flan is made by pouring it in a teacup. Metal flan cups conduct heat and are hard to manage. Making the flan in plastic is easier and it will come out prettier!
1. Put the milk on low heat and add sugar. Stir well and when the sugar melts, stop the heat and cool for a minute. Make sure you don't let the milk boil.
2. Break the eggs in a bowl and stir well.
3. Slowly pour the milk from step 1 into the bowl from step 2 and stir. Add

o 450g of pumpkin, skinned with no seeds
o 2 large potatoes (if you don't want to use the potatoes you can substitute it with an extra 300 g of pumpkin)
o 2 sheets of puff pastry
o 1 large brown onion
o 1 teaspoon of chopped chives
o soy sauce added to taste
o hoisin sauce added to taste

**NOTE: This recipe makes more than enough pasty filling, so you can make larger pasties if you wish. It's okay to have a small amount of filling leftover.
Step 1: Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius
Step 2: Half-fill a large saucepan with water and heat on high until it is a rolling boil. While you are waiting, peel the potatoes, and chop them and the pumpkin into rough 2-3cm cubes. Put these into the saucepan, and when it has come back up to boil, cook for 15-20 minutes, until the pumpkin and potato is nice and soft (mashable).

The Good Critic's GuideThe Good Critic's Guide:The Good Critic's Guide2 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
I have noticed that many critics on DA tend to leave rather harsh and sometimes subjective critiques on the pages of the artists being critiqued. Their rationale for doing so is based on the concept that 'we shouldn't molly-coddle each other and instead "tell it like it is"'. However this type of critique reflects poorly on one who is critiquing as opposed to the one who is being critiqued and I will explain why throughout the course of this guide. In essence I hope to use this resource as a way of teaching potential critics how to properly focus their abilities and direct their critiques in a manner that will allow them to be rated as a good critic.
Note: Before reading on, take note that this guide is only for literary works as I have no experience judging visual art and therefore cannot create a rating scale for those.

The first question that we must ask ourselves is this: "Why does an individu

who lost his best friend today. I can't move, can't speak. I crumple into myself. I never knew. He never told me anything. I saw them, heard them taunt him. They dragged him down down till that smile of his was just a ghost.
I didn't know it hurt him so much. But somehow I knew someday I would have to face this. I saw the shadows forming, the future setting itself up. I wanted to grip him, pull him close, and never let him go. He had been my best friend, the kid I couldn't think of never seeing again because I never had to. I feared the day that I would wake up and know I would never see him again.
And it came and I don't know what to do. There's nowhere to turn, no one to call, and I wonder if this hollowness will be there forever.

A note on physical sex, gender, and identity
While there are many different species - forms of being - for Princess Zelda and Sheik (whether simply as a disguise, as a seperate being with seperate consciousness, or as a combined being with a seperate consciousness), physical sex and gender are rarely taken into account.
It can typically be assume that Princess Zelda self-identifies as belonging to the female gender, and, when a seperate consciousness and not a disguise, that Sheik self-identifies as belonging to the male gender, as Sheik is repeatedly referred to as a male by others in Hyrule. However, these may be altered, with Princess Zelda identifying as male or Sheik identifying as female.
Physical sex may remain female, transform into male (or remain male, where the two are born seperately), or exist in an androgynous state, with characte

They'd just finished the Roster Race; Vanellope had come in second this time behind Candlehead, but she didn't mind of course. He'd placed third, just behind her, but it didn't do damage to his ego like it normally would.

"You can just call me Vanellope, Swizz. It's only president if it's one of those formal meetings or whatever that Dad holds."
