We now have a freshly-minted princess. Reactions, predictably, range from "rockin'!" to "the world has ended!". Some people just aren't happy unless they have something to bitch about, and the proof is all around you.
I understand why the folks at DHX and Hasbro did what they did, and it was for very understandable reasons... that annoying "reality" thing. Walk with me here, lemme 'splain it.
The overriding issue, for Hasbro, is ensuring that this episode achieves a sort of completion. This is driven by several factors that have to do with television and how budgeting and production is done. The first thing to realize is that sixty-five is a magic number for shows in daily syndication. It means that you can show a different show for five days a week for thirteen weeks in a row without repeating, which is one quarter of a year. Shows in a daily rotation will therefore not repeat more often than once per quart

SO to the point:
first of all you need to get sai, you can buy it or you can download it for free. i cant recommend sites but there are some out there where you can download sai for free.

right click the programs icon and then click 'properties'
when the properties dialogue box appears click the 'capability' tab on the top
then click 'run capability troubleshooter'
when it's done looking at it click 'try recommended settings'
then 'test the program'
when i did it, it came up with a warning "do you want to allow the following program from an unknown publisher make changes to this computer" i clicked yes and then it should run sai and it should work normally.
BUT YOUR NOT DONE YET

for anyone who needs itwhen I was younger, I got made fun of a lot in school.for anyone who needs it4 months ago in Personal More Like This
My current emotional and mental state is thanks to all that teasing.
It stopped for a long time.
But I was lonely.
Because everyone was afraid of me.
I had one or two friends
but they were the main targets for the bullies
It was hard to protect them
I was only a tiny third grader
They called us worthless
They spilled their lunches on us
and made us run
We ran away, I never let them look back once.
Just when we thought we were safe
My parents ripped me away from them.
It kept happening.
I toned down by fifth grade.
Finally settled down in a good school with a good teacher and plenty of friends.
Then middle school happened.
I led silent protest after silent protest to help kids around me who wouldn't help themselves
I loved life
Until my dad left
Every amount of worth I felt I was vanished
I hated everyone again
I hated myself.
Hate was all I had to coil around.
Then the teasing started.
All About Plz Accounts and How To Use ThemWhile DA gives us tons of awesome emotes to use, there is also a second, less known group of emotes here on DA that we can use as well. These are created by individual people and made into "Plz Accounts". A "Plz Account" is an account who's whole purpose of creation is simply to allow people the use of it's avatar.

One thing I get asked about quite a bit lately when I use emotes from a Plz account is "where do you get those emotes?" So I thought I would put a quick explanation as well as some plz account examples so they will be easy for other folks to find too!
Please keep in mind this is just a very small selection of the many Plz Accounts out there! I do have a collection of many many more listed permanently in my journal http://gypsy-.deviantart.com/journal/ on the right side, under "Plz Fun!"

Religion vs Life(EDIT at the bottom)Religion vs Life8 months ago in Personal More Like This
To all the religious fundamentalists who hate members of the GLBTQ community because they are different, claiming that gender identity and sexual orientation is a choice and a sin against "God", I have this to say to all of you:
You clearly do not get it and you never will until you open your eyes to the truth. It has been proven that sexual orientation is not a choice, we are born with it just as we are born with the color of our skin, hair, and eyes, how tall we're going to be, all of it. To force someone to go against their sexual orientation is to condemn them to debilitating depression and suicide because they can not stand living a lie to suit what other people want them to be. And as for gender identity, it has been medically proven that structures in the brain take on specific shapes that determine if they are Male or Female, so Transgendered people are literally born in the wrong gendered body, and since you can not surgically change the brain without lobo
Eponine RantSo I'd like to take some time to rant a bit about why I like Eponine's character better than Cosette's in the musical/book Les Miserables. If you haven't seen/read Les Miz, drop everything you're doing and GO READ/WATCH YOUTUBE VIDEOS NOW. And then you can read the rant.Eponine Rant3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Eponine is in love with her childhood friend, Marius, who falls in love with Cosette, but she was mistreated by Eponine as a child. But DESPITE being hopelessly in love with Marius, Eponine brings he and Cosette together anyways, and carries letters back and forth between them. I understand that Cosette had a difficult childhood and all, but she was adopted by an affluent philanthropist and was loved. Eponine's childhood may have been better, but not by much, and then she was homeless when she grew up.
And she died! In the book, she sticks her hand in front of a gun to save Marius, and he doesn't even recognize her at first. And in the musical, she gets shot coming back from delivering a letter to Cosette from Marius w

How is this relevant, you may ask?
You accept people for having a different sexuality, a different gender, but when someone is more overweight than you, you shame them and laugh at them and accuse them of not trying to lose weight. We live in a generation where we need to start accepting people of all races, sexes, orientations, and body types.
And until you can bring your pathetic little ass to say that every body type is beautiful on both men and woman, get the fucking hell out of my face.

Dear newyorkx3People, we need to talk. It's about these "Devious journal entries". For those of you who don't know a Devious journal entry is a usually sad journal where the author describes issues going on in his/her life. They usually talk about depression, stress, loneliness, sad things etc. They usually say that they wanna die or they're done, or they feel like suicide or something sad. Usually they get help from others and they feel OK. Lately I've been a little concerned about one of the artists I watch. He's been posting a lot of these entries recently and I feel like trying to help him. His name is newyorkx3 :iconnewyorkx3:. newyorkx3 does very good MLP anthro art that he draws with Markers. His art is pretty good and I've faved a bunch of his drawings, But lately he's been having a trouble with his life. Not only is one of his comics recieving some bad criticism by a certain user, he's having trouble with his job. He's been yelled at by other workers for being late and not doing good.

Say hello to Pecan.
Probably one of my most unusual characters; Pecan's body is made up almost entirely of pecan pie filling and some pecans (but no crust). The hair is made of lemon meringue, and the uh... ehem "bodily fluids" are made of milk and honey.
Eyes: Dark red/brown
Hair: White, fluffy meringue topping.http://sta.sh/02blquutpde6
Misc.: Pecans as freckles http://sta.sh/01vxmjgp1yix
Pecan is a slime person who doesn't really have a gender and isn't picky about being either one depending on who it's trying to seduce.
To Pecan being attractive and being delicious are equally important, as being eaten is a crucial step in its reproductive cycle. It actively tries to get eaten by being as delicio

Sarah Jane would be my dad. I let people walk all over me most of the time, while cursing them in my head. I am a shadow of what I can be. I tried to please my mom, but all I felt was "I'm just a slave to her." Nothing I did ever impressed her, there was always something wrong with what I did.
Well, now that that's over. I throw myself into depression a lot. Yay for no need of alcohol!
So besides that, a random guy texted me last night O.o his name is Dan Eastman and I never heard of him nor do I recognize his area code. Maybe he's a college kid. Oh well.

Alicorn TwilightAt the moment, the episode has not come out yet. Though, alicorn Twilight has been something hinted at since season one, and as a writer I am excited to see change and appreciate the possibility of having some clarity on the mythology of Equestria. I highly doubt the show creators would break the friendship of the characters, nor would they make Twilight "Outlive" her friends. Remember who the target audience is: Young, impressionable little girls with dreams of being their own princess in some way. To see a character they are familiar with becoming a princess, not from being related to royalty but instead from her own hard work and diligence is inspiring for a young child.Alicorn Twilight2 years ago in Personal More Like This
We've seen many princesses who are given this role from the start. Our poor, Disney girls always pining for something more, sitting in their sheltered life longing for a prince or an adventure. Instead, we are seeing a young woman who has EARNED her place as a princess from her kindness, knowledge, and her experienc

"The Fifty Shades trilogy was developed from a Twilight fan fiction series originally titled Master of the Universe and published episodically on fan-fiction websites under the pen name "Snowqueen's Icedragon". The piece featured characters named after Stephenie Meyer's characters in Twilight, Edward Cullen and Bella Swan. After comments concerning the sexual nature of the material, James removed the story from the fan-fiction websites and published it on her own website, FiftyShades.com. Later she rewrote Master of the Universe as an original piece, with the principal characters renamed Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele and removed it from her website before publication."
The Derpy Controversy ContinuesThe Last Roundup returned to iTunes and the best and biggest thank you to the fans pretty much got crapped on due to soccer moms crying ablism for political correctness.The Derpy Controversy Continues3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Basically, Derpy Hooves was no longer mentioned by name, her eyes were underped, her voice was completely changed, and Rainbow's dialogue was re-recorded to make her sound less sarcastic and annoyed.
Let me just say that I do not support this change at all as Derpy was a nod to the fans and this little show of her's was done FOR the fans as was giving her a voice with an identity. In all honesty, I kind of prefer the episode stayed banned from iTunes over being altered as it was since to me, this is just very disrespectful to the fanbase who gave this character a name and attention.
And I've seen this before, there are people complaining to us who are upset at this saying "well at least she's still there" or "it's just a cartoon". You know, basically generalizing the whole thing.

I've Got a New Favorite Dreamworks MovieSo for Christmas last year I got a bunch of money and decided to buy How to Train Your Dragon on a whim (along with several of those movies on the poll). Of course I didn't really have much of an opportunity to watch movies, you know until I got so sick I could barely do anything but watch movies. It was a perfect opportunity to watch How to Train Your Dragon, and I was really blown away. Well first of all, it's like that Eragon movie done right. I mean, it actually takes time for Hiccup to train Toothless and you actually see their relationship bloom. You know, instead of five minutes. The relationship is actually extremely charming, and you feel it. The animation is breath-taking, almost looking like stop motion at some point (although for snowing 9 months of the year, and hailing the other 3 it's strange how we don't see a single flake). The dragon designs are unbelievably creative, and the flying scenes are just amazing.I've Got a New Favorite Dreamworks Movie1 year ago in Personal More Like This
