One dose of glitterOne dose of glitter can light up the world
One little thought can bring back little girls
Fairies and dragons and strong, worthy knights
One dose of glitter can shine through the night
Hush, little girl, for the stars in the sky
Shining so sweetly like your stunning eyes
Don't let the nightmares define what you'll be
Notice the beauty within every dream
Hush, little girl, there is no need to fight…
One dose of glitter to light up the night.
PS4I was wrong and Sony pulled a Nintendo to announce the PS4 way earlier than I anticipated. Of course they will have more details at E3, and they didn't reveal too much about the system, but the fact that they announced it this early was definitely a surprise to me.PS42 years ago in Personal More Like This
They revealed a number of interesting features about the system which, I must admit, are pretty damn amazing. I love the concept of being able to stream your PS4 games on your VITA from anywhere. That's a system selling concept right there, and it kinda beats Nintendo at the whole "play away from the TV with the Wii U pad" idea. (psst! Nintendo! Make an app for the 3DS that streams Wii U games to the console! hurry!)
I also really like the idea of being able to record your gameplay and stream it to people while you're still playing it. I can see that becoming a really big thing for gamers, especially on YouTube where "let's plays" are really popular.
The system also won't block used games, like everyone was fearing it might,
Tropes Vs Women in Video Games: Part 1Tropes Vs Women in Video Games: Part 1 Damsels in DistressTropes Vs Women in Video Games: Part 12 years ago in Personal More Like This
Anita Sarkeesian's first video in the much ballyhooed Tropes Vs Women in Video Games has finally been released. The verdict? Acceptable. There's really nothing that offensive in the video at all, as it's mostly just a history of the "Damsels in Distress" trope and how it's used in video games. It's fact based and fairly interesting to watch.
The only two criticisms I have are as follows:
1. As someone who's done a LOT of research into the making of Donkey Kong (primarily for the short Flossed In Time storyline that I illustrated for Brent and Dan http://www.brentalflossthecomic.com/fit/?id=1 ), I can say without question that her info about how Popeye came to be turned into Donkey Kong is wrong.
Donkey Kong came about because Nintendo of America's president Minoru Arakawa placed a large order for Radar Scope, a popular Japanese game). By the time the game arrived in New York, months had passed and in
#SixWordStories: Monthly ShowcaseA type of Flash Fiction, six word stories are (very) short stories with an exact word count: six words. SixWordStories is the place where, alongside quality, quantity really does matter. Though these stories are so brief in length, they can be as profound, if not more, than the prose and poetry you see and read every day, partly because six word stories can tell us so much and yet contain so little.#SixWordStories: Monthly Showcase2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
In our feature articles, we will be showcasing six word stories submitted to Freestyle folder.

Six Word Story ReminderThis blog is directed to all those that write six word stories. Even if the content does not apply to everyone, it would be much appreciated by the admins of this group if you could read this blog.Six Word Story Reminder1 year ago in Personal More Like This
It has come to our attention that a sizeable majority of you are having your six word stories declined by us pending approval during submission. If they are not declined, then they barely scrape through. Writing on behalf of the admins here in this group, we have discussions on what is acceptable and what is not, and the amount of pieces that are not acceptable has increased in the past few months.
The concept of a six word story can be difficult to understand, though writing a six word story can be even more difficult for some. As a result, we strongly suggest that everyone revisit what a story is and is not, specifically this blog in which we have underlined some features on what makes a six word

No One Cares About Your StoryGOOD NEWS: This is perfectly normal!No One Cares About Your Story2 years ago in Literature Features More Like This
I can't remember the source, but a few years ago I read this famous author's account of how it felt to have his first book come out, and he mentioned buying a copy himself because he was afraid no one would take an interest. Now this is a guy who managed to get not only an agency but a publisher (which is a whole pile of people who were like yesplz), and he's still afraid readers won't care. I was like, 'whoa mind blown.'
But anyway, the fact is that we are all strangers on the Internet and, by default, there is no reason for you to read my stuff or vice-versa. If you went and stood in Times Square with copies of your latest story, how many people would give you more than a passing glance? And how many of those people would get to the end of your work, and how many of those would offer critical feedback?
And, if you were one of the passersby, whom would you stop for?

Its all a ScamContextIts all a Scam2 years ago in Personal More Like This
This is another long one, and I apologize but I need to speak my mind. This journal is in response to the "righteously indignant" users making a fuss about me "selling" fanart of copyrighted characters in my recent Adventure Time post. To the person who signed up today just to write a nasty comment on my new Society6 page. To the person who flagged my recent Adventure Time illustration on DA and then proceeded to send me an e-mail about doing it (probably the same person). To the people creating multiple accounts to try and dissuade users from spending their money how they see fit. And to a long list of people who follow everything I do post just to make sure that their negative voice and attitude are the first voices anyone ever sees on all of my work.
It's All A Scam

Lance Armstrong = EPIC WINI'm frankly tired of all the little bitches in the media yapping away in their over the top outrage about Lance Armstrong's asshole behavior. It's so fashionable to hate Lance these days. Really, is this guy really supposed to be THE one we all should hate? Everyone on TV is telling you so. Well, do you?Lance Armstrong = EPIC WIN2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I just realized that I don't hate him nearly as much as all these wishy washy assholes pretending like they wouldn't do it if they had the chance. The deal? Train as hard as you can. Dope and lie about it. Win the shit. Get $100M of personal fortune, and raise a few hundred millions for charity.
Everyone condemning Lance for lying has lied numerous times, probably even that same day. The difference? He had the the balls the size of Jupiter and Saturn to take it it to its logical conclusion, and the perseverance and tenacity to win seven Tour de Frances. He's an asshole, no doubt. However, the other thousands of cyclists who doped came nowhere near accomplishing that type of feat. Keep
Launch of the Literary JournalAs writers we all dream of being published. Sometimes it is as simple as you send out pieces, someone likes it, and it gets published. But most times it isn't that easy and you get rejection after rejection to the point where you start doubting your craft. The problem usually is not your writing, it is that most of the 'serious' places (literary journals) where you would like to be published are very low acceptance rate submissions and are really niche on what they are looking at from a writer.Launch of the Literary Journal2 years ago in Literature Features More Like This
But having a publishing credit gives you credibility as a writer and in effect is a leg up into the more serious world of publishing.
Since I last got my good news, a few of my friends here have asked me for advice. I am just a girl who happened to get lucky and the advice that I can give is based on very very limited experience. However, what I can do, is try and help all my lovely and wonderful friends here, showcase their beautiful words and works on a more serious publishing forum.

Fari [fair-ee]Fari [fair-ee]Fari [fair-ee]3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Fari are rare creatures that are found in all parts of the world, but they originated from the planet, Venus. They were named after 'fairy's', mythical creatures with magical powers, found in storybooks and folktales. They usually hide from humans and are very shy creatures. There are around 100 different types of fari but the three main groups are winged, Fari with feathered or bat-like wings, spiked, also known as "spine". They have very sharp quills that go to the top of its head down to its spine and just plain fari, they have no unique traits. Winged fari are very delicate due to their fragile bone structure, while the spine fari are strong and durable. They can adapt to any surrounding, they can even adapt to human and animal lifestyles. Fari can possess some magical properties. Some fari who do not have this usually are stronger, and smarter. Some even made their own magic, sealing them in glass spheres called "orbs". Male fari are usually bigger in size while the
