These are the animals of Avatar: The Last Airbender and Legend of Korra which are found within the clan's territories. This journal should be used as reference for roleplay, and even possibly backstory to add more diversity of events within your cats past. Did they hunt this? Possibly gained an item from them? Only creature which is an original design is the Sea Serpent of Avatar which is owned by the groups founder, all other critters belong to the Avatar franchise, please enjoy!
Also please note for the time being the Sea Serpent image is not the legit one for the group

Critique is a DialogueCommunication is a collaborative effort.Critique is a Dialogue2 years ago in Literature Features More Like This
Students and teachers, doctors and patients, the UN and member states—no matter how different the backgrounds are, no matter the gap in experience or who's leading the conversation, it's important for communication to succeed. And the only way to do that is by making sure there's always room for a dialogue.
Dialogue: two sides having a conversation together.
Based on the literature community chat we had not too long ago, critique seems to be desirable. This blog is a response to the fact that a number of people mentioned dissatisfaction with a) how much critique they're getting, and/or b) responses to critiques they're providing.
This is about critiquing people you don't know, and who didn't request a Serious Business Full-Length Critique.
welcoming critique: For Authors

BEST. MORNING. EVER.So I was on my way to college and I was just bored as fuck trying to get there in a hurry (a normal morning XD) when I look over and see these two old ladies in a car painted like the British flag. :iconsweetjesusplz: Damn...that car was beautiful :iconitsbeautifulplz: So I was like skdjflkasjfld;skjfs WANT. Well I couldn't resist my next thought. One of the old ladies had her window rolled down, so without further ado I rolled down my window, poked my head out and sang "MARUKAITE CHIKYUU! MARUKAITE CHIKYUU! MARUKAITE CHIKYUU!!---" before I could finish the old lady closest to me stuck her head out and shouted "BOKU HETALIA!!!!" :iconUS-XDplz: Oh my fucking god!!!! XD Dude I dunno if they heard the song from one of their grandkids or something of if they watched it themselves but either way it was funny as fuckin hell. BEST. MORNING. EVER.BEST. MORNING.

use: shades of brown, blond (yellowish - ash), ginger, black, white (for albinos, but keep this limited!)
♦ Skin colours according to race (any race is acceptable!).
♦ As the whole settings happen in Europe, mainly the ethnicity should be picked from here, but also other are allowed but not that everyone will suddenly pick Japanese.
♦ Age must be over 14!
♦ we are in year 845, people were not exceeding the height of 2 meters= 5ft-6ft5in only in some rare occasions or due to disorders (even the snk wiki states eren's height as average)
♦ Try to make the story original, we don’t want to have a group of kids who lost their whole family on same day the same way, and not at all we want see characters that are too much alike the ones in manga/anime. Get creative~!

Welcome sisters to the Messier-Senshi group! This is a group of amazing artists who fell in love with an idea that SLMGregory had that grew into an amazing alliance with the help and imagination of Sir-Frog ! This group is not a place for hate or remorse, so please have a Moon Healing Escalation cookie before coming inside :3
Feel free to message them anytime you have a problem or issue in the group. Please note the group with group questions though as the peacekeepers are so busy being peaceful and awesome that they can't possibly answer all those questions too :3

The change on winning a contest always gets smaller based on the amount of people joining in, however this doesn't mean that your work will be diminished by the numbers.
Here is a list of tips and tricks to make sure that your work gets into the top 10 !

Reviews: Cosplay Wig ShopsSo, here we start with the review thingy about cosplay stuff.Reviews: Cosplay Wig Shops3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Since I ran into a loooooooooooot of trouble in the past weeks regarding wigs I will start with them.
First of all some general important informations:
- ALWAYS keep an eye on the feedback of a shop. If there are negative or natural feedbacks READ THEM. Not every negative feedback is appropriate and some shops sell more than just wigs. So be careful.
- ALWAYS be carefull with shops that advertise with asian cosplayers. A lot of pictures are taken from the japanese highclass cosplaysupplier cospediawig or the chinese Tabaeo stores. Have a close look at the pictures. Often you can see some blured details or removed watermarks. I even found some fellow non asian cosplayers by now as advertisment for wigs they definitely didn't buy.
Some shops even take pictures from wigs on wigsstands from other sellers. Look and think twice if you buy there. You can be lucky and get what you see, but there is a pretty high chance you ge
Revisiting Naruto cosplay + Road to Ninja Movie!So I've heard of this film for a long while, but never got to watch it for lack of a proper subbed copy/DVD release.

And, it's also a functioning tumblr blog, so you can follow along if you'd like for automatic updates! From now on, I'll only be posting the full pages there, but I'll post little previews when I update, here and on my regular tumblr, to let you guys know there's a new page. (Which, there is a new one right now, but it's just the chapter 1 header pg, so no story yet. Sorry, but you can go look if you'd like! Every chapter will have a "header" page that isn't necessarily connected to the actual pages. It's just a place for me to do "for fun" art really. Because fun is good. Xp)
So yeah. Hooray for getting things done. Now I just need to find time for more pages.
Castiel FAQHey there! So this is a journal dedicated to answering frequently asked questions about my Castiel cosplay. I get many asks on every picture about various things on this outfit, so I decided to go ahead and answer them all in one place~Castiel FAQ2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I never personally found the accurate coat to buy. I did find out that the jacket was originally sold by JC Penny, but they are no longer in production and I never found one for sale. The website I found it on was an overstock site and they were already sold out, and now even that page is down. My coat is NOT the accurate coat. I ended up making a lucky thrift-store find with a coat that was the right color and size for me, but had a strange flap on one shoulder and no straps on the cuffs. I ended up seam-ripping off the flap and re-sewing the shoulder, then hemming the cuffs and adding the wrist straps using the fabric from the shoulder straps.

Sailor Moon: New Anime in 2013 (now w/video)This is not a rumor!Sailor Moon: New Anime in 2013 (now w/video)3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
It was officially announced that there will be a BRAND NEW Sailormoon Anime in Summer 2013! The original Japanese VAs for Moon and Tuxy seem to be reprising their roles (based on the conversation in the event). We don't have much more detail, a letter from Naoko said she hopes we like the new series and she's happy to be making it. She said she's overwhelmed at the support the series still has and it makes her happy. She didn't think she could do something new but now she's happy she can bring them back!
They said the audience is intended to be the original fans of the show. It will be like a "powered up" of the original story, aimed at the good girls (and boys!) who grew up with the show. TOEI is doing it.
There was something in the announcement about it being released worldwide but we don't know the details. We do not know what this means as far as a possible English dub/sub. We don't yet know when/how this will reach a US market.
The new theme song is bein

Tutorial: How to find MMD model links ...Tutorial: How to find MMD model links ...3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
It seems a lot of people really do have trouble finding models that they've seen and like for MMD. I have a lot of people who visit my Deviant Art gallery asking for links and this can get irritating as I am not in the habit of collating links. However, there is a percentage of people who genuinely are new to MMD and really have no idea, and it is for these people that I am writing this brief tutorial.
Almost all models available for MMD exists somewhere on the Internet for download with perhaps the following exceptions:
Those that are sold commercially (Windows 100% models)Those that were taken out of circulation by their creatorsThose that are made privately for personal enjoyment or private collections
In general, you should NEVER ask for a download link for these as in the case of 1 & 2, where download links exists, they are probably ILLEGAL (as in you'll probably be breaking applicable Copyright Laws if you used those links). As for case 3,
