Makes 8 Pasties
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

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.

Ingredients for the caramel sauce:

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!

Ever have trouble deciding what side of an argument your character will take? Do you have trouble remembering small details about your character, and often change them accidentally in the middle of a story? Try this list of one hundred questions to solidify your knowledge of your character. Feel free to use this and post it as its own deviation. Just please link it to me in a comment if you do. Try to answer the questions in as much specific detail as possible. This is for you, so there is no use in cheating on it. I would suggest doing two for each character: one for the beginning of your story, and one for the end, to reflect the changes that happen.
1. What is your character's name? Do they have a nickname?
2. Is your character male or female? What is their sexuality? What role does it play in your story?
3. How old is your character? Does their age matter to them emotionally or socially?
4. How tall is your character? Does it affect the
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.

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.

SIMPLE HOLIDAY RECIPES
Traditional American holiday meals are typically some sort of roasted meat (turkey, prime rib, ham) along with a bunch of relatively simple side dishes. A lot of attention is paid to the main dish, but the side dishes can be as much of a pain. I've already put up my favorite stuffing recipe; let's put up a few others. The assumption is that some of the folks trying this out are new to cooking, so I'll include the reasoning behind a few choices, along with some basic tips and cautions that new cooks might not have learned the hard way. Yet.
One of the hardest things to do is to know when to start various side dishes so everything is ready at about the same time, while somehow doing all the cooking on four burners (only two of which can hold a large pot) and a single oven. Generally, I try to select dishes that don't all require a large burner at once, take 30 minutes or less to prepare, and/or which I can do advance work on. The

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

Caydence lightly drummed her fingers on the table as she watched her step-father reading her essay. His hands trembled. He tried to steady his breath with forced gulps of air, but she knew what was coming. His eyes were too big and gentle to hide the tears. Her quickening heartbeat was painful, yet Caydence remained quiet and alert.
For years Caydence wrote and published essays concerning women's rights, gender equality, and GLBTQ issues to various magazines and contests. She didn't see herself as a professional writer; she was just an artistic feminist-in-training who wanted to be heard. Usually her essays were quick and easy. She had plenty of support from friends and family for editing so most of her writing was sent off without hesitation. This story was different. Caydence could care less if it was published in national magazines or received outstanding reviews from thousands of readers. There was only one person's approval she needed: her step-father's.
