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…

Our little one, in preparation in my tummy,Our little one, in preparation in my tummy4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Thousand of kilometers apart, Sheriff (sheriffdesignstudio) and myself, (AlexandraSophie), met on deviantArt.
He lived in Sri Lanka, and me in France.
He spoke only English, and me only French.
We were from different continent, culture, religion...
But love was stronger than anything!
It was already almost 3 years ago that we exchanged our first comment,
He found my profile with this photo:
I could never have imagined, when I took this photo, so randomly the day of
his birthday but one year before we met (definitely a sign!)
as I was sitting in my backyard, playing with the camera with not any real intention,
that it would make me meet the perfectest prince charming,
who is now going to be the dad of a little baby, actually in a warm preparation in my tummy!
We fell in love at the first second we spoke to each others, and needed only a few days to make it official,
it was the July 4th, 2008. He just turned 17, and I was about to turn 16.
Millions of sms,

Aditi's (lovetodeviate) Resource ListAditi (lovetodeviate) was a great (brilliant, amazing, talented, much-loved, etc. etc.) literature GM here at dA a while back. She recently deactivated her account (her own choice, and one that I respect) which meant her journals were gone, and along with them her famous literature resource list. I asked her if there was a back-up floating around and she obligingly emailed me the latest one. So here it is, reproduced for your viewing pleasure.Aditi's (lovetodeviate) Resource List4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Just to be clear I had absolutely nothing to do with this; all thanks must go to Aditi. Unfortunately you can't leave a message on a deactivated page. However, if you use this resource, I'm sure an appreciative tweet in the direction of blottingpaper wouldn't go astray.
I will do my best to maintain this list, so if anyone finds any high quality resources that they feel should be added here, send me a note and I'll do so.

When life gives you pears, cut them into ducks and bake them into pizza~

Project EditHello there odd collection of people who read my ramblings!Project Edit2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I have an idea for a project. I was going through some of the really old pieces in my gallery recently that I haven't looked at in a long time, sorting through them and picking out some to edit and putting stuff into gallery folders to keep it organized and I had an idea. This would be the project:
-select a handful of pieces (3-5) that you have an eye to improve, and could use feedback on
-copy or move them into a gallery folder titled "project edit"
-visit like gallery folders of fellow deviants and leave feedback for them
-receive feedback on your own pieces
-consider the input of your fellow writers and tackle your edit.
-link me with finished pieces and I will select some to feature in subsequent "project edit" journals
-propagate this project by suggesting participation from fellow writers

Vampire CollegeThe other day, my dad handed me a printout of an article from a conservative website about going to college. Dad does this from time to time, I think because he suspects I'm a filthy liberal, and wants to send a few shots across the bow to see if I fire back. I usually don't, because I've been through enough warfare to have a better idea of when to pick my battles.Vampire College2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Well, I won't reference the article directly, but the gist of it was that college is a bit of a costly venture that doesn't always yield the results it promises for the price of admission, and may actually do more harm than good. (High schoolers, meditate on that for a minute, please)
Now, the article itself sort of descended into a screed about how colleges just crank out liberals anyway, and liberals tend to vote Democrat, and we should just bust the whole thing up because dear God, we need conservative voters or they'll have a WOMAN in the White House next...
...Which is unfortunate, because "liberal conspiracy" aside, I
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 speaks2 years ago in Art Features More Like This

STATUS: CLOSED, filled all my slots. Thanks everyone!
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

...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
