A Girl's Two Cents on Equestria GirlsSo, nobody really -asked- me, but I feel like sharing my thoughts on the Equestria Girls thing. Not so much for my own benefit, but for the benefit of everyone else who feels like me and has been denied a voice in the matter for one reason or another.A Girl's Two Cents on Equestria Girls2 years ago in Personal More Like This
If you're not at home to hearing someone badmouth a cartoon on ideological principles, you're not going to like this, I'm warning you now. But if you care about my thoughts and feelings on the matter, read on.
And let me say before anything else, that this isn't a criticism predicated on canon disruption, or particularly on the general cartoonish merits of a cartoon. I make this argument as a girl, as a self-respecting, intelligent girl - not as a cartoon aficionado.
To understand why I feel the way I do, you should first put yourself in my position - that is, the position of a girl who is acutely attuned to media representations of women, to "girls' entertainment". And a girl for whom, when she first discovered MLP:FIM, was -largel

A message for the MCRmy.As we are all now aware, one of the greatest bands of our time has finally decided to call it a day, after 12 long years.A message for the MCRmy.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm very upset, of course. I still feel empty inside. I've been crying so much, and I can't listen to them because I just burts into tears. My Mum was promising I could go to see them when they next toured.They helped me to stop harming myself, and now I'm almost fully recovered. All because of them. I can't believe it's over, and all so suddenly.
I don't know how the rest of you are feeling. Do you feel upset? Angry that they announced without a warning, no explanation? From a lot of the journals, comments, things I've seenn on Facebook and Wattpad, everyone is devastated. As I am. But I've thought about it, and I'm not sad anymore. Here's why:
MCRmy, this isn't the end. We're the fucking My Chemical Romance Army. We're strong. We'll carry on. We'll help each other through this horrible time. We're a family. The band may be over, but they're leaving a legacy that w

The reason non Japanese Manga isn't doing well!I have been waiting to address this topic again for some time now. I don't think a lot of you realize what's really going on with Manga here in the states and for those who do manga that are not Japanese. So for everyone who aspires to try manga for any reason and want it to be a success or stick out from the garbage heap. You may want to listen to what i have to say. Take notes and open your mind, if you have a closed mind then i advise you to be open. This may not be the journal post for you if you are closed minded. Ok now that's out of the way let's begin.The reason non Japanese Manga isn't doing well!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
For those of you who don't know your history Ameri Manga was a thing. It started off in the what early 2000's. Well it failed miserably needless to say for whatever reason. Ok so Then Bleach comes out and there's this huge jump in fans and amateur artist wanting to make their own personalized manga. So credit Bleach for this huge leap and jump for others to try and produce their own manga.
Now we fast forward to today

We're 5 student developers and we're aiming to release a movie quizz application on Android.
Find the movie : the concept
Find the movie is a movie quizz, but the enigma is a picture that describes the movie in an original way. The picture will be made of 4 hints, each hint is an aspect of the movie, but because pictures can tell more than words, here's an example about the Lord of the Rings :
This example is a pretty bad example, firstly because it's ugly, and secondly because the dimensions are not right, but it explains the concept, and now, you may have a better idea of what we'll be asking for this contest.

free requests?I-I'm really not used to getting watchers. I've noticed that I'm coming (somewhat) close to 300 watchers and I was wondering how many of you would actually bother to read this journal. xDfree requests?4 months ago in Personal More Like This
Anyway, I was thinking of maybe doing 2-3 free requests (chibis, bust shots, full bodies, not multi-char though) when I reach 300, cause I am SO. SO. grateful to all of you for watching me. T_T (Because I'm actually quite busy, I can't do more than 3.)
Again, I'm also unsure whether anyone would be interested so..
Please comment (or fave this journal if you're lazy) if you like this idea!
thank you and I <3 you all!!
EDIT: You're all so nice. ;u; I'll do 3 requests once I reach 300, then. I'll probably select the winners through a random number generator, so it'll be...a raffle?!
My first raffle omg owo;;;I might include some points as prizes as well. I'm quite excited for this! Thank you all for the interest! <

Why rape jokes are disgusting.(Watchers: Rant inbound.)Why rape jokes are disgusting.2 years ago in Literature Features More Like This
I'm writing all this down in a Journal entry so I don't have to flip out and repeat myself every time some idiot makes a rape joke.
It says a lot when something like this is even necessary.
Trigger warnings: Rape (inc. -culture, -apology). If I have misrepresented anything in the following Journal, I apologise. If anyone has anything to add, feel free to comment.
"Rape isn't about uncontrollable sexual desire. You only have to listen in on a Call of Duty game to see that. When that kid crows, "I raped you!", he's not calling the other guy sexy; he's saying he defeated him, dominated him, humiliated him. That's what rape is about, and that should scare you."

Also, be warned....these will probably turn into some giant ramblings/stories as I am feeling sooooo random today! :iconderpfaceplz:
1) My first friend in kindergarden was a boy, a girl, and another girl from Japan. We used to play "Cooks" and make up a bunch of random disgusting foods (example: "I'm making strawberry-chocolate-lemon-coconut-applesauce!!!" ). There was also a large, stuffed tiger involved....somehow.
2) I actually started being interested in the stories of the clones from Episode 3. How Cody became my favorite I would assume is because I started off my Star Wars obsession worshiping Obi-Wan. But then I got kinda bored with him because all his stories had been told already and he wasn't really as 'underdogish' as I would be interested in. So then I was like, "Oh hey...." 0____0 "Who's that guy
