Me: I remember telling you this.
I think of myself as a dead tree that's still standing. People continuously try pushing it down, but for some reason, I still stand, even though all of my leaves are dead and falling.
G. C. Brahms: And wanna know something?
G. C. Brahms: That makes you amazing.
Me: I'm a dead tree, Lit.
G. C. Brahms: Let me speak, I'm about to say something important.
G. C. Brahms: Some day... You'll be telling a story to your daughter, or your friend, or somebody suicidal and you'll say to them "When I was younger I thought of myself as a dead tree... Still standing, but all my leaves were gone. And I thought it was the end. I thought it'd be better off if I just fell over... Little did I know that it was just winter... And that spring would come. And I'd grow again. Winter can last a

Popular 'Sue' Traits and How to Use Them CorrectlyThis is the third time I've posted this. The first two times, I had to delete it due to dA lagging on me and sta.sh screwing up...oh well.Popular 'Sue' Traits and How to Use Them Correctly2 months ago in Personal More Like This
There's a lot of crap on the internet about what makes a character a Mary Sue/Gary Stu and what does not. Well, here's what I personally think about certain traits that some people overdo and how you can use them in your work without butchering them to the point of Uber-Sue Wonderland. This will tie in with my How to Roleplay Efficiently and How to Create a Good Horror OC journals. You don't have to agree with me on any of this. All opinions are my own, and I'm not trying to bash any particular OCs out there. I'm just trying to clear up some things and help people with OC development. Enjoy.
1. Tragic Pasts
Alright, you know how a lot of OCs out there who are classified as Sues have tragic pasts? They come a dime a dozen, right? Well, I don't think the input of a tragic past is t

Give a Little, Get a Little [Closed]I see a lot of great artwork on Deviantart that gets watches or favs but no comments. It's the holiday season so you can give a little and make someone else smile. Don't be shy!~ Although you don't have to say much, I do need the comments to show me you actually like the art, not just posting. So don't just say "cool" as the comment or "nice art". Nothing like that. Something meaningful.Give a Little, Get a Little [Closed]9 months ago in Personal More Like This
Comments to points grouping
5 comments = 3 points
10 comments = 10 points
20 comments = 30 points
40 comments = 100 points
1)Group up the comments. I am not going to add them per message. For example, if you send me 5 links in 5 separate messages. I am not giving you points.
2)You can get the points more than once. So you can send me 40 and 40 and you would get 200 points. They can be in separate messages too as long as one group is one message together. Hope that isn't confusing.
3) Actually like the art. Don't just post. I have the right to deny your comment if I find just spammy.

1. The butthurt is strong, opinions aren't welcome, and feuds over fictional characters are so venomous that threats of homicide are made.
2. An art site teems with amateur, so-called 'artists' who cry if they get a critique.
3. Smart people can grab a big, fat bowl of popcorn and a jumbo-sized Mt. Dew and just enjoy the fuckin' show.

Most annoying things on dAWhat are the most annoying things on dA? What bothers you the most around here? some people, a type of art,drama?Most annoying things on dA6 months ago in Personal More Like This
1.For me the most annoying thing is when someone clutters my notes and front page with begging for points or free art.
The thing is I was new here once. I remember when they put the points currency and llamas how people went berserk for llamas or points. I like llama trading. I don't return every llama these days..but when I have time I will do it.
I remember having no points and no subscription. I remember who was the first person who gifted me a premium membership and I thank him with all my heart. I remember how I wanted to get points. I used to have a donation pool on my page and I used to ask for points in my comment signature. But then I realized that I can start commissions to get points. And so I did. I started participating in contests and advertising my art on more sites to get a bigger audience. It worked just fine.
But when I log in to dA and I see a pile of not
The storm is here [update]Read update below.The storm is here [update]2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So someone linked a stamp of mine in their description and being the self-centered freak I clicked on it to just go back over it.
And found its description was deleted.
Do you see that at the bottom? I am shaking with rage.
There was a huge list there about things that #christians blocked people for. And I glance at this deviation randomly, and what do I see? "Content removed by staff".
I was never notified of this whatsoever. There was no mention made. Nobody told me anything. They just took it away and didn't tell me anything about it or even why they did so.
There was nothing wrong with that list. All it was, again, was a list of reasons why people get blocked from the group #christians, mostly pertaining to mentioning you are or you support LGBT.
I am fucking pissed off li
Fake Your DeathTonight, MCR's last song 'Fake Your Death' was released. (Yes, before you ask, I do think that's an almost painfully cruel name to give it. But it was given that title before all this).Fake Your Death6 months ago in Personal More Like This
And yes, this fucking hurts. But I guess, as much as I thought and kidded myself it wouldn't, I always knew that it would. When I saw there was a new song, I got excited, of course I did. But then, tonight, reality hit, and I spent forever putting off listening to it. Because once I did... That was it.
And yes, I cried. Because, somewhere in there, it struck me... This is, genuinely, the last thing we're gonna hear from them. The last time we're gonna hear those four guys creating music together.
And yes, Gerard was right, it does feel like a eulogy.
So yes, my heart is hurting. I feel like the scar of last year has broken again. I've been so used to being fine, because I have been fine, for a while now, and I have made peace with the split. So, at least I know I will be fine again tomorrow, but for now
'Atheist Community' Pushing me away more and moreI hesitate to use atheist here since it is just a particular position on a particular topic but for lack of a better term here it includes all those who reject any religious belief in favor of just atheism. If that makes sense.'Atheist Community' Pushing me away more and more7 months ago in Personal More Like This
I have been thinking about this topic a lot lately. I haven't written anything on it since I can't coherently state my thoughts. And I also have a lot of atheist watchers (well a few at least) but I decided to write this anyways. Please bare with my non-nonsensical writing. And also realize I am talking about how I am perceiving the community as a whole, not each and every atheist themselves.
GUH IGNORE SPELLING AND PUNCTUATION AND GRAMMAR. I hate that shit. Its midnight maybe I'll correct later.
I have long since loved the community of atheists/ free thinkers/ skeptics. In fact, I considered myself a free-thinker for awhile, during the time when I was struggling with Christian
Would you please welcome...... baby Peter!Would you please welcome...10 months ago in Personal More Like This
Wow what a whirlwind it's been these last few weeks (and even months). Finishing work for a while for maternity leave, and then eagerly awaiting his arrival, it felt like it went on forever. The due date came and went, co-incidentally is also Kritter's birthday, and STILL no baby. I thought he was eager to make an arrival but managed to prove us very wrong.
So the story goes something along the lines of this: Contractions begin one day after the due date, and go for about 5 days before we head to the hospital to get checked out. Expecting to come back home, I'm admitted and labour is induced that afternoon. Unfortunately through the night the induction didn't fully take and in the early hours of the morning I was taken for an emergency caesarean. At 4:50am on October the 7th (and here's something amusing, October 7th was a public holiday... LABOUR DAY) Peter is born, healthy and huge. He's a whopping 10lb 9oz!
I spent the next 4 days in hospital, and Kritter stayed with

Que-ink, thank you. DorianHarper, thank you. Words are supposed to be my thing...but I don't have any. I don't know what to say, I'm damn-near crying in sheer elation. I have a Daily Deviation. Maybe, the more I say it, it'll sink in. This isn't real life, man. This can't be. I didn't just get a Daily Deviation, I'm dreaming and this will cease to be. Then I blink and it's still there. It's still there.

Oh my, Gerard...!
So. The wonderful, beautiful, amazing, perfect Mr Way has basically announced his solo album.
Okay. Right. Thought's in order here. Hold on. Give me a second.
I haven't stopped grinning since last night
Right, so, Gerard was at an event called Graphic yesterday, in Australia, and he talked about a lot of things.
One of these things being that he has completed his album, and he's really happy with it.
He also played a recording of the song, Millions (which he had posted the lyrics for on twitter previously)
Here's a (very quiet, but if you listen closely, you can hear it) recording of the song - http://www.mediafire.com/listen/0rvb06gn143c24b/Millions-+Gerard+Way.m4a

Finally, it hit 4:30, the time we VIPS get to go in, BUT, Dahvie and Jayy didn't arrive on time. We went in by 4:45. Oh well, still worth it! Wasn't a big deal. (Also waiting in line I met my SGTC!!! slash gash terrow crew it was so fun cx Awkward hugs FTW! ) I started saying outloud ''IS THIS REAL LIFE? IS THIS ANOTHER FANTASY DREAM? THIS ISN'T REAL.
