1. They must be your own OCs—no stealing from books, TV, movies or video games
2. You must credit me or link to the original meme. Feel free to send me a link if you want to share!
3. Don't be afraid to use OCs from different genres (i.e., A medieval fantasy character could be paired up with a Sci Fi or Fiction character) This takes place in an unnamed void where no one will criticize you for genre-crossing
4. If you make any changes to the meme, such as add or take away questions or character traits, please LET ME KNOW

Best Damn WomanWhen I was younger, my home life wasn't really conducive to having friends. My only friend for most of my life was my cousin. We were only a few months apart in age, but we felt like twins. Finished each others' sentences, would text the same things to each other at the same time, could sense when the other was in pain or just needed a pick me up. We invaded each others' lives and were the last person we each said "I love you" to at the end of the day.Best Damn Woman3 months ago in Stories & Vignettes More Like This
A little over a year ago, she was killed in a car wreck along with her husband. But there are times I still get those feelings. Still want to grab my phone and send a text. Sometimes, I've actually sent the text and then I wonder who the person is on the receiving end. They've never responded. Not sure what I'd do if I did get a response.
I miss her more than I've ever missed anything. Even her faults. Like when she'd take over my house and force me to do something I didn't want to do. Joining dA was one of those take overs.&

Educate Yourself: Change!So a lot of people are getting mad at the staff for changing the deviantART logo, and to be honest, they need to shut up about it.Educate Yourself: Change!3 weeks ago in Editorial More Like This
It's called change, and no matter how hard you try to harass the staff about it they won't revert back.
Here is the article explaining everything:
Boldly Facing The Future
However, there are some misconceptions about this change, so let me clear things up.
The logo is art theft!
It seems that there is a website called http://platzkart.ru/ that has a similar logo, and people believe that they ripped it off.
I don't see how that's possible since they aren't exact, and I doubt the deviantART staff knew about that website when this whole thing started.
Also, it would be called copyright infringement, not art theft.
The staff are artists, why did they make such an awful logo?
It's a common misconception that every person who joins deviantART is automatically an artist.

At that moment, I swore to never love another
I wouldnt want it any other way.
You were perfect just the way you were
Brown and glistening in the sun

Yes, I knew that you were the one.

What do we do with the other mech? he asked. Jazz turned to look at them; they still hadnt left. Thundercracker spoke with the notion that he was possibly thinking of something slightly sinister. Could we have him?
Yes! Starscream piped up, apparently thinking of the same, dirty thought. We could have him to ourselves while Tracks gets--

“You still going on about that old book?” Luke questioned Ethan as they were walking to school. “It’s probably just some old history book or something that belonged to some foreign guy you know.”
“No, I think it’s more than that. I can feel it.” Ethan replied confidently, thinking about the old and mysterious tome.
“Well . . . Can I see it?” Luke eyed Ethan’s backpack, looking to see if there were any shapes that suggested a large book was in there.
“I left it at home, don’t want anything bad to happen to it.” Ethan informed him, to his disappointment.
“Well it’s been what, a week since you found it? I’m free today; can I come over and see it?” Luke asked hopefully, intrigued by it.
“Not today, sorry; I have some chores.” Ethan thought back to the situation at home, “Something

It’s late, and dark. There are hardly any people around, but still Zehnder walked around like he normally does. Esther is following him, joyful that she can finally be with him. Zehnder walked silently, and when he passes by anyone he only turns his head slightly to look at them; they never notice. He seemed to be looking for a worthy candidate.
After walking around for about an hour and a half, Zehnder finally sees someone that he feels like killing. The person seems to be young, maybe still or just out of college. They were walking a large dog, a German Shepard.
Zehnder muttered under his breath “What the hell kind of idiot walks a dog at this hour?” He began to walk across the street; they were still a little ways away from the dog walker. Esther began to follow him, but he turned around “No; you wait here.” Esther stopped obediently and waited.

Straining himself, Ethan managed to sit up. He then backed up slightly and leaned against the wall of the small tree house. He sighed, looking around; he could remember good memories that took place in this humble building.
He reached up and took off his mask, and then set it down beside him. With his normal hand, he felt his face. He could feel his large, sharp teeth sticking out of his mouth. Part of him wished he had a mirror again so he could see, but, on the other hand, he didn’t really want to see his face again.
Setting his arms on his knees, then his head in his arms, Ethan sat there, unsure and alone. What could he do next? He couldn’t return home, that was certain. He would most certainly die on his own if he didn’t do anything soon, since either the police would shoot him or a demon would get him. The police wouldn’t help him -- however, a demon might.

The ark was in chaos as Prowl raced out of the Medbay, Ratchet staying behind to tend to Ironhide. Autobots were running here and there as shots were fired, echoing in the large room. A missile flew past the cop and he dove for cover back into the Medbay entrance as the explosion rocked the old volcano from top to bottom. Looking up he saw a Seeker disappear around the corner toward the entrance to the base, followed by Hound, a large piece of the Seekers wing in his grasp.

What do NaruSaku fans love about the pairing?
Their development throughout the story, their interaction, their themes, their foundation, and just their overall win.
Why do NaruHina fans like NaruHina?
"Because it's cute and Hinata's cute and Sakura's a b*tch and that's why it should be NaruHina and SasuSaku because Naruto loves Hinata!"
Whatttttttttt? Let us take a further look into this matter..
1. Naruto does NOT have feelings for Hinata. If you think this then clearly you are not following the Naruto storyline for he has a crush on Sakura Haruno.

He had managed to steal some food from a stand to feed himself. He didn’t like stealing, but he didn’t really have any other options.
Only after satisfying his hunger did Ethan make his way back to the forest. He looked around constantly for any signs of the demon he had encountered before, but didn’t manage to detect any trace of him.
Ethan didn’t really know if he wanted to see that demon again. He was glad that the demon hadn’t killed him, but he didn’t seem all too friendly with him either. The next time Ethan encountered him, maybe the demon would be bored and then decide to fight him. Ethan cringed slightly, remembering the demon’s menacing claws sheathing and unsheathing so easily.

They climbed the buildings to give themselves and eagle eye view of the surrounding area; but they didn’t seem to be able to find any other demons, or even shinigami for that matter.
They continued to search, talking as they went.
“So, tell me more about these shinigami.” Kage asked, looking down at the road from a rooftop.
“Well, that one that I told you about first, the one with the black robes and scythe, he doesn’t seem to be friendly with anyone. I don’t know what his motive is, but he never seems to attack humans, only demons and other shinigami. I avoided him the few times I’ve seen him, and that was a while ago. But I saw him go after this other shinigami once, maybe a year or two ago.” Doku explained, scanning the windows of a seemingly empty building.
