UPDATE 10/2/2012 - Heigh ho, friends! Contraltissimo back from the dead here. Oy my gosh school.
*ahem* I'm here to let you all know that I HAVE COMPLETED JUDGING the entries, but that I will not be posting the results tonight, because it's über-late, and morning comes early, and I would rather put together something a bit more formal than I have time for right now. Expect results tomorrow.
To preemptively make up for the pins and needles this waiting may elicit, I have prepared

Character Creation and RulesA comprehensive guide to roleplaying in RP groups can be found here for further reference: http://fav.me/d4ya3ypCharacter Creation and Rules3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Please be sure to adhere to the following rules when creating characters to enroll in Otherworlde:
Characters must be paranormal, supernatural, or magical in some way. No basic humans without any magical ability are allowed (though witches and warlocks certainly are).
Furries are not allowed. Characters can be nekomimis (ears and tail) but no more. Shapeshifters who turn into animals are perfectly fine as long as their humanoid form isn't furry.
Characters should fit the atmosphere of the location. This is a very dark place, so please don't have overly colorful characters or dress them in basic street clothes. They should represent the horror theme.
Characters must be sixteen or older. Exceptions might be made if your character is younger

My Name Is Meth and i will destroy youMy Name Is "Meth"My Name Is Meth and i will destroy you2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I destroy homes, I tear families apart, take your children, and that's just the start.
I'm more costly than diamonds, more precious than gold,
The sorrow I bring is a sight to behold.
If you need me, remember I'm easily found,
I live all around you - in schools and in town.
I live with the rich; I live with the poor,
I live down the street, and maybe next door.
I'm made in a lab, but not like you think,
I can be made under the kitchen sink.
In your child's closet, and even in the woods,
If this scares you to death, well it certainly should.
I have many names, but there's one you know best,
I'm sure you've heard of me, my name is crystal meth.
My power is awesome; try me you'll see,
But if you do, you may never break free.
Just try me once and I might let you go,
But try me twice, and I'll own your soul.
When I possess you, you'll steal and you'll lie,
You do what you have to -- just to get high.
The crimes you'll commit for my narcotic charms
I Am A ChristianI found this beautiful piece while browsing through a friends amazing gallery, and it just spoke to me So I'm going to share it with all of you.I Am A Christian2 years ago in Personal More Like This
ALSO please check out :iconjustplaincoolguy:'s gallery and profile, he's such a amazing person and is so admirable and inspiring, he makes my heart smile
I Am A Christian
When I say that "I am a Christian," I'm not shouting that "I am clean living."
I'm whispering "I was lost, but now I'm found and forgiven."
When I say that "I am a Christian," I don't speak of this with pride.
I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.
When I say that "I am a Christian," I'm not trying to be strong.
I'm professing that I'm weak and need His strength to carry on.
When I say that "I am a Christian," I'm not bragging of success.
I'm admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.

Partly because I do not have enough funds to sponsor something like this.
I decided to up the ante this week and do a PM giveaway too Each month, I will try to give out 2 or more memberships to people! Read the thumb for more info. All big things start small, so this time it'll only be a 1 month membership. But next time, I hope i can make it a 3 month one! Or just give out 2 1-month ones. But trust me, you can do a LOT with a 1 month premium membership. Believe it when I say that if it wasn't for my first premium, I could never have done all these giveaways you see today.

Point: Basically. You can have a character that's already made. It could even be your main fursona. :3 So...yeah. I'm trying to find foes for my characters. :3 You have to draw a picture of them together. Fighting or standing for a face off or something. Be creative

Territory: Northlands http://fav.me/d5v654i
Dragons live in the snowy mountains of the far north, isolated from the rest of the world by harsh and deadly terrain, only they are fully comfortable in. The vegetation is sparse with a few pine tree forests, and dragons mostly survive by hunting other animals in the area, such as bears, snow lions, arctic foxes, birds, hares, long haired goats and gazelles among others. The tall mountains are always partially covered in snow even in the summers. While dragons have established a few towns for trading purposes, they mostly live in caves deep inside the mountains, where tunnels can stretch onwards for miles and miles through on

Friendship is a RoseTrue friendship is like a roseFriendship is a Rose2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It needs love and care so that it grows
But it can't be grown in a day, there simply is no way
It will otherwise just wither away
Though the bulb may be small, when given time, it will grow tall
Into a flower quite beautiful, to be seen by all
But here is what you need, listen and please heed:
Kindness and Love is the soil you need, it shows how much you care indeed
Loyalty and Trust, that is the water it drinks. That will keep it alive, away from the brink.
And finally, the last thing you need, but certainly not the least indeed!
Joy & Laughter is the sunshine it takes, to bring it the warmth and the happiness it needs, forever after!
Keep those things in mind, and never forget:
With the proper care, your roses will bloom yet
Roses of Friendship, in Red, Yellow and Blue.
Roses of friendship: Blooming for me and all of you

What's the Deal with Commissions? Something I've seen around Deviantart for awhile now, and I was curious as to what other people thought about it.What's the Deal with Commissions?1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
It seems so often I see many artists complaining that they cannot get anyone to commission artwork from them. They go to great lengths to try and sell their skills, and some even adjust their prices to next to nothing or DA points.
When people don't bite, they ask me, or on the forums, "What am I doing wrong? I only want 100 points and no one buys them"
There are many artists such as myself who sell art/prints etc etc because we rely on it as a part of our income, but many of these people still live at home, or are in school. So, 100 DA points ( for example), which is $1.25 , is not really going to help anyone with bills or rent, or much of anything else.
And yet, there they are over and over, very upset and depressed that no one buys commissions from them.
When artists ask me how they can better market their work so people will buy it,

Do not want.
Otherwise it's not too bad...
This... could take some time to get used to... :I Because you know what? I have a gut feeling it's not going anywhere...
Needless to say I am not that impressed. However, I will get used to it... as long as they don't enforce that ridiculously obnoxious 'Activity feed' widget thing. That was just 'WHOA, NO.'
