So I don't really know what the normal age is to develop a fetish, but for me it happened when I was quite young. I can remember having a TF fetish back when there was still a little mesh fence on my bad so I wouldn't roll out and die overnight. (although my parents did leave that thing on there a little longer than they needed to) But when I really think about it, i have to say that Disney was responsible for this early discovery of fetish-dom. It all started when my Babysitter took me to her nieces' house. They were, I guess about 4 years younger than me. maybe more. They were like 3 and 2, and I was probably about 6 or 7. So they're just chillin' watching Snow White. The Uber sheltered child that I was, I had never seen it
Drawing advice, as it were.Today on Shrinemaiden.org, I was talking with a gentleman who was having trouble making progress with his art. That is, he was stagnating--drawing every day, yet not getting better. I guessed--correctly, as it turns out--that his problem was sameness. Line drawing, anime style, #2 pencil, day in, day out. How did I know? Because that used to be me.Drawing advice, as it were.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Some artists can put pen to paper and draw from nothing, just put down a couple eyes and scrit-scrit-scrit, next thing you know, there's a cute girl where once there was naught but white space. That's not how I operate, and in my view it's not how beginners should learn.
We've all fantasized about being able to beam images straight from our mind onto paper. But if we could, we'd quickly find out that our mental images aren't as precise as we give them credit for. Why? Because our brains are wired to retain only enough information about an obje
Writing Editorial: Killing CharactersGiven that I'm now into the swing of my original novel, I thought I'd begin a new segment where I share my knowledge on certain topics.Writing Editorial: Killing Characters1 year ago in Personal More Like This
For all you writers out there these segments will help you be better writers.
Granted I am still an amateur writer at best
I maintain the argument that I at least KNOW what makes good writing or at the very least on the topics we discuss I know what needs to be talked about.
This will be the first of several editorials and I only decided to start on this topic because of the current Bleach and the recent chapter of Fairy Tail.
So let's begin
What does it mean to kill a character?
Well killing a character basically means that you're getting rid of them, they're gone.
You can't use them anymore. (Unless of course death is cheap in your world, but who wants that?)
PEOPLE DIE WHEN THEY ARE KILLED!
It's very easy to say off a red shirt with no plot importance, but what about when you want to kill off a character that you feel your audience
Diluting QualityBioshock Infinite was one of the few games I’ve completed and been quite happy to immediately start again from the beginning. So good was the story and immersive the universe it crafted that it was a joy to replay again and again.Diluting Quality9 months ago in Personal More Like This
It had that quality so rarely found in interactive entertainment: a satisfying end.
With most games striving to be epics, we’re usually left with the developers leaving the door wide open for a sequel that may never materialise, and no ending at all, or just a crap boss battle followed by the credits to act as a marker for when and where the budget ran out.
Bioshock Infinite had genuine closure and had given you all the information you needed over the course of the game to answer any lingering questions yourself.
It was a perfect, stand-alone product.
And then Burial At Sea comes along.
I was delighted at the thought of returning to Rapture and spending more time with Booker and Elizabeth, but now, having play
Last wordsI have been receiving mails where some blame me for the demise of DE. I did not order the attack as I said before. Ganonmaster closed the place because of that. I did not. All I wanted was my forum back. I did not want it gone. It was an important recourse for Source users. It isn't my fault someone took this to the extreme and hacked the place, making Ganonmaster taking it off line. He said he cared about the community! Well if he did he could have left it in Gnins's hands at least in stead of taking it all down. I know Gnin cares. I sought legal means to get my place back. I never wished for this. Me and Ash despite several obstacles in the DE history manage to find a solution and kept the community alive. Ganonmaster took all that away because he had enough. Well Ganon. It was not your community to shut down. And you never sought another solution. That I now get the blame is down right offensive.

I got hackedHi this is lifeloser. The last couple of weeks have been truly chaotic time of my life.I got hacked3 months ago in Personal More Like This
All my online accounts with major websites like Tumblr got hacked and vanished from the sites.
At first I was dumbfounded by the whole ordeal and then I panicked and got mad.
However I soon realized that being swept up in anger would not get me anywhere, so I tried all I can to fix the situation.
Firstly I got help from my aunt who's proficient in English and requested for an explanation and recovery of my account to Tumblr.
However all I got from them was that the recovery is not possible. I was in despair once again. I received the same disappointing
responses from the other websites as well.
Then Deviantart sent me a reply saying that if I insert my password within 30 days, my account
can be restored. I was thrilled but when I tried it as instructed, the password wouldn't go through.

A Sweet Lesson On PatienceA NYC Taxi driver wrote:A Sweet Lesson On Patience2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I arrived at the address and honked the horn. After waiting a few minutes I honked again. Since this was going to be my last ride of my shift I thought about just driving away, but instead I put the car in park and walked up to the door and knocked.. 'Just a minute', answered a frail, elderly voice. I could hear something being dragged across the floor.
After a long pause, the door opened. A small woman in her 90's stood before me. She was wearing a print dress and a pillbox hat with a veil pinned on it, like somebody out of a 1940's movie.
By her side was a small nylon suitcase. The apartment looked as if no one had lived in it for years. All the furniture was covered with sheets.
There were no clocks on the walls, no knickknacks or utensils on the counters. In the corner was a cardboard
box filled with photos and glassware.
'Would you carry my bag out to the car?' she said. I took the suitcase to the cab, then returned to assist the woman.
She took my arm and

Two days back he posted a deviation condemnin' th' DA system. This I wouldn't have minded, if not for the fact that he condemned popular artists as well, citing that groups are the only reason fer our success.
Honestly, that's a load of horse crap and I'll tell ya all why. He himself stated that if everyone is usin' groups then yer deviations won't be seen even amongst the mass that gets pumped in everyday. Guess what, that's why ye work has t' be good, it has t' have a proper author tag and an appealing title. The first lines have t' draw the reader in.
