An Analysis of Deviant Art's AsshatteryAn Analysis of Deviant Art's Asshattery3 years ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This
As many of us are well aware, there are many fundamental issues with the way Deviant Art functions as a website. The site is often slow or all-out unresponsive, people have no privacy and protection, and other problems exist that the staff simply doesn't care to resolve. Despite these problems and many others, the most we see in the way of site updates is aesthetic tweaks and piddly, unnecessary destination re-routes.
As far as I can gather, there are four basic issues with Deviant Art that desperately need to be changed. There are probably more, but they will be saved for a later article if they are brought to my attention. Each issue I see will be discussed and solutions will be proposed. It is not necessarily my hope to receive a Daily Deviation on this, and I certainly don't expect the staff to actually take it into consideration, but I do hope to at least share my thoughts on the issues I've experienced in my 2.5 years as a De

"So... You're taking Conan back overseas with you?" A teenage female sat on a couch, across from an older woman with dark hair. The teenager was wearing a high school uniform, a blue blazer, green necktie, white shirt, and blue pleaded skirt. Her crystal blue eyes seemed intent, curious, and inquiring. But that masked the real emotions she was having: remorse, worry, loneliness, and worst of all: Reluctance.
The other woman was dressed up in a female business suit, but with a ruffled, lacy white neckpiece. Her hair was done up in a bun. She gave a small, curt nod.
"Yes. We can finally bring him with us. My husband and I found a very good school for him to go to as well. So you needn't worry about his education. He's old enough to take care of himself now too." The woman smiled warmly.
"Oh. Alright then. I was betting Conan was getting anxious and homesick as well. He's very good at hiding his feelings, but I'm pretty sure he missed his parents very much." The girl replied. What are

You touch my upper arm as you pass by me and I remember the distribution of pressure down to the square millimeter eleven months later, when I am far from you and as I toil away at the papers shielding my desk (and my heart, perhaps) from view.
I write you a sweet story in my head.
I write you volumes.
And you will never know.
But you should have guessed.
There is no romance here.
There is only the clacking of keys (and the carefully calculated press of fingers to palm when you ask for a pen) (so subtle I almost fool myself into believing it could be overlooked) (do you overlook it, I wonder?)

I am in love not with you but with your authority, your meekness, your self-consciousness (unwarranted; you put the stars to shame) which you hide so well but so terribly.

You kept on looking up at the building in amazement, not knowing anything else at the moment. Your eyes were as wide as plates and your mouth was slightly open. You were completely amazed and really shocked that you were actually outside the place where the world meeting was going to be held today.
England was the first one to get out of the car, but you still didn't move a muscle. You were still staring up at the building in completely amazement. You did notice that your big brother opened up your door for you.
You felt him take your shoes out of your hands, though you didn't react. You did stay barefoot the whole ride here and luckily enough, England didn't scold you for it. Instead of scolding you, he placed your shoes right outside the door for you. You were grateful for that though because you knew all too well that the ground was really hot, even though it wasn't even ten o' clock yet.

You ran into your room as quickly as you could, closing your bedroom door behind you. You scanned your bedroom to try and find the right clothes to wear. You really wanted to look nice but you just didn't know what to wear.
Finally, an idea struck you. You scurried over to your closet, opening up the door. Once the door was open, you scanned the closet to see what was within. Your eyes landed on your favorite dress. A smile appeared on your face as you reached inside your closet, snatching the dress off its hanger.
It was the perfect color of blue, just the right shade. There was a ribbon that went around the waist as well. England had gotten you this dress a few years back and ever since you had gotten it, it had been your favorite out of all the dresses you have ever gotten before.
You pulled the dress over top of your head, the dress stopping at your knees. You giggled before twirling around once in it, feeling like a princess. You always did feel like a princess

_____ sat back down at her computer with her morning coffee. About the third day in a row of research. Lovino had asked _____ to find anything she could on a guy named, Wang Yao. So far absolutely nothing showed up. No pictures, no profiles on any site, not even the slightest indication that this man even existed.
"How the hell am I supposed to find anything on a guy I know nothing about?" _____ sighed, frustrated. She got up from her chair and went to get dressed. She slipped out of her pajamas and put on a plain black T and some dark blue jeans. "I'll just go ask Lovino for some info."
