And I am LAUNCHING AN INVADER ZIM SECRET SANTA! >8D IZSS!!
I am going to host a Secret Santa for all of you in the IZ fandom out there! : D
What is a Secret Santa?
A secret santa is a "tradition in which members of a group or community are randomly assigned a person to whom they anonymously give a gift" however in this case the "gift" will be a drawing.
All of you who sign up for the Secret Santa will be randomly assigned someone to draw a gift for, and you also will be receiving a gift from someone.
How does it work and how do I sign up?
1. In order to be in this Secret Santa you need to feature this journal, spread the news so we can get as many people as possible.
2. When you join you must tell me WHAT you want your Secret Santa to draw for example you can say "I'd like a drawing of my character ____ doing ____" or "I'd lik

Alright my loves, this is a journal of me giving you some tips about writing and stuff! This was a little thing I was supposed to do for my 1,000 watchers celebration, which is actually now 1,130 (Thank you so much I'm fangirling so hard my love for you dorks is strong) and basically, I'm just going to give you guys a few pointers, and tell you things NOT to do that personally are some of my pet peeves about writing X3 I hope you enjoy!

First thing's first, you really want to start your story with a hook. I probably sound like a teacher saying that, but it honestly works. Whether it be super dramatic, really sad, really happy, super lovey-dovey, dialouge, or even just one word will be enough to make the Reader wonder what could possibly happen next.
Never Stop LivingNow I know I'm not one to tell you how to live your life and how it's gotta be but I just got tired of a certain thing lately and I wanted to speak about it with y'all.Never Stop Living2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm talking about suicide.
Already some of you are like "what are you talking about?" or "oh man, Wani's finally gonna do it! ;o; "
No, it's none of that. I gave that up long ago and I am not even one percent close to even suggesting that idea, especially after what happened...
In short, last June, after meeting :iconGizzyFox:, I met with two friends of hers; Gary Torres and James Ramirez(no relation).
These two guys were pretty weird when I first met them after some pretty embarrasing Skype sessions and chatting on Tumblr but soon enough, they were like the coolest dudes I ever met.
I don't think I ever met two dudes who I can completely relate to. 030
Behind the scenes, Gary and James had a "thing" going on and as you may have guessed, they were together for a short time. UwU
However, during that time, I was get
SIN ART CONTEST 2015 (Update)ART CONTEST INTROSIN ART CONTEST 2015 (Update)1 month ago in Personal More Like This
SIN has successfully moved and settled on Tapastic.com! With the release of Chapter 50 I've decided to host an Art Contest to celebrate how far the series has come!
This will be the 2nd Art Contest that I've held for SIN, the first one back in 2012 had over 60 submissions, let's try to beat that number!
So it's been roughly a week since the contest was announced and I've already got 3 entries! Which is surprising considering last time I held one of these I didn't get a submission until like the last week before the deadline, hahaha! Anyway you can check them out in the "Submissions" section at the bottom.
I'll be attending three conventions in the next few weeks (Toronto Comicon, Emerald City Comic Con, and Fan Expo Vancou
GUYS PLEASEITS NOT COOL TO COPY PEOPLE.GUYS PLEASE1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I KNOW WE'VE ALL DONE IT BEFORE, ITS JUST WHAT PEOPLE DO, I UNDERSTAND THAT WHEN PEOPLE SEE SOMETHING THEY LIKE, THE WANNA MIMIC IT.
I'VE DONE IT, YOU'VE DONE IT, WE'VE ALL DONE IT
But seriously, when I see people copy, trace, or steal artwork that belongs to my friends or myself, or anybody for that matter it really pisses me off.
And it makes it even worse that I'm always to scared to say something about it.
YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE.
IF YOU FIND YOURSELF DOING SOMETHING LIKE THIS, PLEASE REALIZE THAT I KNOW WHAT YOU'RE DOING. I SEE WHAT YOU'VE COPIED, AND IF IVE SEEN SOMETHING THAT YOU COPIED FROM SOMEBODY ELSE, YOU CAN BEST BELIEVE THAT I TOLD THEM.
I KNOW WHAT YOU'RE DOING. I SEE IT, AND I DO NOT APPRECIATE IT.
I don't like pointing these things out.
It really upsets me every time I have to pull out my serious act and post comments saying "This artwork isnt yours, delete it or imma report yo ass"

it's World Suicide Prevention Dayand I'd be lying if I didn't say that I am a wreck.it's World Suicide Prevention Day7 months ago in Personal More Like This
For those of you who may be unaware, back in January a friend of mine killed herself. She was an internet friend but a damn good one and one who I miss more than I want to admit.
Chelsea was one who supported my writing from the moment I joined Fanfiction.net. She introduced me to Markiplier, who continues to be one of my biggest inspirations to this day. She would constantly assure me that I mattered in this world. Chelsea was a good fucking person and she didn't deserve the shit she went through. Near the end of her life, we'd lost touch a bit and didn't talk as much as we used to. My iPod's facetime stopped working so that was useless, and I just kind of stopped knowing what to say to her so I opted for nothing at all most weeks.
I regret that so much. If I had messaged her more, would she still be here? If I had told her how much she meant to me more than I did, would she have swallowed those pills? Maybe. I don't know.
Bullying + my experiencesHelloBullying + my experiences1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I wanted to take the time to write about bullying and what I have been through, and also how I dealed with it.
Unfortunately bullying is very common. You are not alone about being bullied. It happens to most of us.
People bully you because of how you look like, or that you have something that they don't have, maybe that you are good at something they're not. It can also be that they are jealous and just want to put you down to feel better about themselves.
I was being bullied around 3rd grade to 5th grade I think. Which was after my best friend switched class. There was this girl who used to call me mean words and also talk behind my back. There was one day when she turned all the girls in my class against me. I think why she was mean to me is that I am very sensitive, if someone call me something I will easily get upset. And I was young back then so I was almost about to cry. Of course I told my parents about it and they just told me to ignore her. I did that and tried not to

You smirked as your opponent fell to their knees. You had taken down yet another shinigami. "Too bad, you were too weak for me. I might not be considered an espada, but my power surpasses them." The shinigami stared at you, and with their last breath said, "You're... a good arrancar... at heart..." They then died. Your eyes widened, good arrancar? At heart? You turned around, sheathing your zanpakutō, z/n, and scoffed, "Arrancars don't have hearts." With that, you left the battlefield. You killed over 10 shinigami there in 20 minutes.
"Sheesh~ I've gotten sleepy. I guess it's time to go home and report to Aizen. This war will go by in a breeze." You opened a garganta and stepped in. You were ready to leave this pitiful world. You were glad that you had died and became a hollow. You still hadn't extracted your revenge th

OMG uncle rick confirmed that he wrote a kane and percy crossover!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SO EXCITED!!!! :iconcryingrainbowsplz:
So, yes, it's true. As announced today in Publisher's Weekly Children's Bookshelf, I have written a crossover story featuring Carter Kane and Percy Jackson. The story is called "The Son of Sobek."
This is something fans have been asking me to do for years, but why this story and why now? My publisher Disney-Hyperion was looking for something fun to add to the paperback version of The Serpent's Shadow, which comes out May 7 -- something to encourage folks who haven't yet tried the Kane Chronicles to pick up the series. I decided what the heck. Let's throw Carter and Percy together in a Greek-Egyptian dilemma and see what happens. The result was SO much fun to write.
If you buy the paperback version of Serpent's Shadow on May 7, "The Son of Sobek" will be at the end of the book, no extra charge.
CEA Blog: How to Submit an Abuse ReportHi deviants!CEA Blog: How to Submit an Abuse Report4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Today I would like to address an issue that unfortunately happens quite often in abuse reports filed to our support center. We've had guides and articles written about this in the past but we felt it was time for a refresher!
So what is an "Abuse Report"?
The Abuse Report category is where a deviant would file their ticket under if they are being harassed or was witness to someone else being harassed out there in our community. Not knowing where to go or what to do when this happens understandably only adds to the problem!
Before anything else, please remember that abuse reports are only for the most severe of harassment issues. Things like disagreements, debates, general rudeness one might experience due to the anonymity of the internet or personal drama you may have with another deviant are some minor issues that can be easily handled by taking advantage of our Hide and

YO! I just returned safely from our JL: War Premiere in beautiful and blizzardous NYC, and I just wanted to thank all the fans and comics and animation press that braved the insane weather to come see us! You guys and gals helped make it a really special night for us, and on behalf of the cast and crew I want you to know that it is deeply appreciated. We have another JL War screening coming up NEXT THURSDAY the 30th of January at the Paley center in LA. Not sure if tickets are still being sold, but I do believe it's still possible to get in for the resourceful and dedicated who either love what we do, or can't wait to tell us how much we suck to our faces!

Stop harassing the admins, particularly realitysquared. Seriously.
Yeah, you may be mad about it but knock it off.
Going off and being a jerk to someone isn't going to solve the problem at all. So please, stop it.
Don't spam his page and call him names.
Sure, I don't really like him either but there's no reason to go apeshit at him.
He's not going to give you the time of day, trust me. And if he does chances are you won't like what he has to say anyway.
There's other admins to talk to who would most likely be willing to actually listen and talk back.
In light of that, the fact that an admin actually did come forth and display some interest in the subject [fourteenthstar] is kind of interesting, and according to her she'll be talking to the other side mods and staff about the situation with theft. You can read the conversation(s) wit
