In a Little Girl's MindThere sits the girl with the things in her eyes
Monsters, destruction, and sweet butterflies
Hopscotch and daisies, surrounded by screams
Beautiful dresses now torn at the seams
Crayons and paintbrushes, villains and grins
Young, gladsome innocence, hatred and sins
Little red houses on roads left to fade
Gorgeous moonlight shining off of the blade
Blood pouring out as she cries her own name
Knowing she's forced to take each bit of blame
She could have stopped it and left it behind
All of these things in her troubled young mind
She could have saved them if she dared to try
Rather, though, she left herself there to die.
Now, others watch as she sits on the ground
Keeping their distance and letting her drown
In her own worries and things she won't tell
Waiting for her mind to kill her as well…

i killed it, stripped it bare, i carried it right

my lungs, they feel like frost, they're filled with silver
light and sharpness, rattling pips, a scream - i stayed
inside my bed for weeks, i didn't eat, i didn't

Writing Without Publishing: raspil speaksRecently it was pointed out to me that, overall, discussions on literature around these parts focus on writers who want to publish. I'm one of those people. I don't understand not writing your work for fame or money. However, I do know someone who's all about improvement and has no interest in publishing. So I asked raspil to answer a few questions and she did so in the best raspil style. Fair warning: we will have a laugh over haters.Writing Without Publishing: raspil speaks3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
preface: i am going to give you what you want and what is expected. no bullshit, total honesty and odds are, some inappropriateness. if that makes this hard for some folks to read, then that's how it is. i don't apologize for who i am. as they say at Regular Ordinary Swedish Meal Time... haters are welcome.

I will open commissions back up once I've completed my current set!!!
I'm currently trying to save up for RTX next year but with saving up for college tuition and putting money towards a car and a new computer it's looking a little more difficult than I anticipated at this point haha. I'm pretty much at my goal for tuition but after I pay off my car and computer it'll set my savings back quite a bit, but having a car and computer when school sneaks around will be pretty vital for me so I don't mind having to dig into my college savings for them. I'm gonna start doing some commissions here and there every month to put towards RTX and put all my job and artist's alley money towards important life things I've decided haha. Going to RTX would be very important to me though, seeing as my best friend who I've unfortunately not had the opportunity to meet irl

Okami 2 on Wii U and latest Tomb Rider reference?Hello thereOkami 2 on Wii U and latest Tomb Rider reference?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
A few days ago some friends of mine sent me a message pretending Okami 2 was announced for the Wii U.
Of course they only checked french websites which are well-known to be bullshi* if I may say and totally innacurate. So I've made more inquiries, searching everywhere and everything I could find.
I ended up with many english websites pretending that Hideki Kamiya said he was all for it, that he'd be happy to make an Okami 2 on the Wii U and ready for it if Capcom was to agree.
If you don't know who H.Kamiya is, he worked on the story of the original Okami and also directed it. However, he didn't take part in the Okamiden game which makes the previous affirmation unlikely( I mean, if he didn't take part in Okamiden it was just weird to see him on Okami2; it could be possible but pretty uncertain).
So again I took a look at the sources of the rumour.
Which is a tweet on H.Kamiya's twitter. He is not saying in any way that he's planning to work on it. In fact he's not sayin

Working for free is the answer. You might balk at this because some critics say this gives the appearance that there is NO value to skill and talent. However- consider this: Working for free gives you amazing experience. It allows you to practice on someone else's project, see your work in print, establish a reputation and learn- big time. People who won't work for free WILL pay for a course! What better learning experience is there than to work with a client- such as a library or an independent book store or a school- producing poste

Cosplay makeup tips!Here's some tips on cos MAKEUP!Cosplay makeup tips!4 years ago in Personal More Like This
These are my recommended things to do with your make up you don't have to read this!
Use sugar and honey on your lips before anything! Combine a little bit of honey and lots of sugar in a small container, and then rub it on! It really does help with the overall look, nobody likes cracked lips yuck! Lols After you do that use a CHAPSTICK, NOT LIPGLOSS, then lipstick or whatevers.
If you're a girly girl use a shimmer over pink lipstick (ex. Lolitas/ Dolly/ Fairy Kei)
Little bit of red blended for general girl cos lol.
NUDE lipstick for crossplaying boys! (Or concealer)
Deep red or black for more dramatic characaters.
If you have more thick eyebrows: Use concealer first then wait for it to dry a little. After put on white glue, nontoxic, NO SUPER GLUE. After, trace your eyebrows using watercolors or eyeliner. In heat, this method won't wear off!
If you have more thin eyebrows: Use a little glue on the insides of your e
BHBI have to say, though, I think Fuhrer-Glasses kind of had it comming.

The thing is, I also used to be a BHB admin. Now, I don't do the kind of things the BHB (usually erroneously) were accused of.

I don't know what, if anything, the other admins actually did. I realise I'm not neccesarily in posession of all the facts.

I'm going to give you all a list of ten numbers. With the number, there will be a noun/concept/element assigned. You are to write a story using all ten nouns/concepts/elements. Use them in any way you see fit. My advice is to not go with the first thing that pops to mind, but that is always my advice when brainstorming. The more interesting ideas that you attach to the nouns/elements/concepts (in addition to the way you use them), odds are the more interesting and vivid your story will be. So take a little time to get the ideas down that you want to give the nouns/concepts/elements and then plan the story. What I'd do is come up with as many ideas as you can and see if something starts to lead you to what you want to write.
I am hoping to squeeze in some time between editing my script and working and groceries and laundry to write this one. I've ha

A Fantastic Tool for Combating Art ThievesLooking back at that art thief incident, I was reminded of the times in which I came across a familiar work in a thief's gallery but had NO idea where the original was. I was lucky that someone was able to recognize my work and inform me of the theft, but there are so much unreported theft on deviantART and on the Internet as a whole, and its harder to report the theft without links to an original source. Now, I know I'm not the first to discover this tool (in fact, I'm probably the last and will most likely receive a chorus of "Oh, I already knew that!" responses, but this is too important to ignore), but Google has extra features to its image search engine: reverse image search.A Fantastic Tool for Combating Art Thieves4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Basically, you can find most websites featuring the image in question by clicking on camera icon in the query box (images.google.com), copy/paste image URL into the box OR upload the image, and then hit search! Within the first couple hits should be the original

...are tired of the "mature content" police. We believe that part of living in the real world is going to be offensive. And, when we are offended, we are brave enough when sufficiently offended, to peacefully and courteously confront that which offends us and try to resolve it on our own; it is our responsibility as human beings to do so.
Furthermore, when it comes to art, we are perfectly capable of picking and choosing what we will look at, and do not need a third party to "help" by enforcing a ridiculous system of scoring images as "mature" or "ideologically sensitive" or "violent." We think such rules are ultimately pointless and intellectually demean everyone who follows, enforces, or has them enforced upon them. In short, if we don't like your art, we'll ignore it. If we really don't like it, we'll send you a private note or make a public comment clearly stating why. In other words, we don't nee
