Rant: Shippings/Pairings..yeah I don't do a lot of that.. here's why:Rant: Shippings/Pairings2 years ago in Personal More Like This
1. Wars - people are so defensive of a certain shipping they like they think its just perfect while its not even canon. And these fans are so offended by anyone who says they don't like the pairing they love.
2. Rarely Canon - hardly any ships or pairings ever become canon so why should I bother indulging into some fantasy of my favorite pairing become canon. Because there's a huge chance that a lot of people that dont like the pairing will be angry if it becomes canon.
3. The Characters are Great how They are - seriously. I'm not hating on the characters or the writer or the shippers. I think we can get along fine. I just think that some characters are better off without a significant other. Even if some would be really awesome together. But that's not up to me to decide.
I recently put up my Fairy Tail shipping meme just to see if i can find anyone that has common interests with me in certain pairings we like. I'm not
Frankendolling and Editing FAQFrankendolling and Editing FAQ3 years ago in Personal More Like This
THIS FAQ IS NO LONGER RELEVANT, THE BASES ARE GONE, AND I NO LONGER WANT THEM USED, EVEN IF YOU HAVE THEM SAVED.
I decided it was about time I created one of these, as nearly every day, someone asks me a question about frankendolling (and, less frequently, about what edits are allowed). This journal post will explain frankendolling in a way that hopefully everyone can easily understand, and clear up any confusion. Please read this from start to finish before asking me any questions about frankendolling.
WHAT IS FRANKENDOLLING?
The word "Frankendolling" comes from "Frankenstein's monster", a monster composed of the body parts of different individuals. This makes sense because....
Frankendolling is taking any part of a base or finished doll and combining it with another. Things like taking an arm or a leg (or even an eye) from one base and putting them onto another
Tips to writing a reader-insertOkay, I know people make these all the friggin time, but I thought I'd take a stab at it. So here's a some advice to writing reader-inserts, or writing in general.Tips to writing a reader-insert3 years ago in Personal More Like This
1. Have a basic idea of what you are going to write. If you are writing a crack, then this rule can be ignored. But even if you randomly decide to start writing a story, if you have some idea of what you want to write, your story will turn out better.
2. Grammar and spelling. PLEASE. If you don't use proper grammar or spelling, it can be really hard to understand what your trying to say. Sometimes I don't even bother reading stories if the grammar and spelling is screwed up. Use dictionary.com if you have to, or google. Or get an editor, if you can. (I'm willing to do edits, btw. Message me~)
3. Spacing. Use the concept of paragraphs. It is so hard to read if a story
On Behalf of Everyone...Thank You.Earlier today I received a message from our Studio B receptionist letting me know that a package had arrived for me. While I wasn't at the studio, I had my good friend pick it up so I could retrieve it from her later on. At first I was a bit weary to the situation, I didn't know who it was from, nor was I expecting anything in the least. All day while Raven and I passed our time at the mall, I pondered and worried about the strangeness of the situation. I found it odd that someone would send a bouquet of beautiful flowers and two carefully wrapped presents to the studio (who wasn't my husband to be anyhow!)On Behalf of Everyone...Thank You.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Later on in the evening, I met up with Nicole and I finally got to see the gifts in hand. I brought them home and unwrapped them to find two giant boxes of delicious treats, and a letter that made my heart and mind feel at ease again.

The Problem With Character SheetsAlright, there are some pretty awesome character sheets out there. I don't personally use them, but I've seen others make them work. I'm not here to dispute the fact that they've got some utility, but I am here to point out one big problem with relying on a list of traits—which is generally how character sheets present these things—to define your character.The Problem With Character Sheets2 years ago in Literature Features More Like This
(Note: This also applies to Mary Sue tests. 'Not a Mary Sue' just means your character isn't a perfect storm of coincidence. It has nothing to do with likeability or even believability. <insert dictator here> isn't a Mary Sue, either.)
I think this approach is, if it's the only approach you take to figuring out a character, a really bad idea.
Take a moment to think about your best friend. What's their favorite food? What are they good at, and what are things they do that make you Google good places to dump a body?

On the day of your birth, you were likely surrounded by those who loved you, who would lead you through the rough first scary years of life, and who would stand by as you grew into a capable person. As time passed, others may have drifted into your life, and even if you didn't know it, they also nurtured and cared for you in much the same way, helping to shape the person you would become.
When a community like deviantART is born, the same common thread binds its originators and founding members together. Over the years, more and more creative beings drift into its life and strengthen its core every single day, resulting in an exponentially inspirational powerhouse for the sheer fact that they've become a part of it. That nurturing spirit, that inherent support system, that caring community inspires deviantART to grow, and it comes from inside each and every one of you.

oh sawnikI couldn't bring myself to do it. Deactivation, I mean. I had been thinking about it - extensively - because when I start dental school later this year (which will be another 4 years; I will be done at age 26), the workload will be more than double of what it had been for my college years. And it's pretty obvious what affect being in college has done to how often I've been able to draw.oh sawnik2 years ago in Personal More Like This
But for as long as I follow the Sonic series for whatever nonsensical reason I have been for the past 11 odd years, I don't think I can quit at drawing just yet.

What is a Warlock?
The definitions of a Warlock depends somewhat on where you read. But if you look at what all sources have in common, it does reach a mutual conclusion in the end. A former Mage,or Shaman, that has taken to utilize Fel to enhance his abilities. But has also taken to summon Demons personally in order to be able to do so.
And by that, I mean that a Mage who utilizes Fel, and gets it from a pact with a stronger Demon. Or is fed Fel by another Warlock, is not a Warlock. But rather that would just be a Mage with Fel's influence. Some have taken to call that kind of person a Felmancer, but whether that's entirely correct is actually lore-wise unconfirmed.
Conclusion; The two requirements remain. 1) Fel's influence. 2) The Ability to personally summon the Demons or Demon you get Fel from. Which in turn requires you to be able to utilize

Pokemon: Because the concept of going around and beating wild creatures unconscious then enslaving them so they can fight just for your amusement is such a good thing to teach children.
I remember when I was kid. I used to bug my mom for a Super Nintendo every day. So one day, when I came home from school. She had tied a cape around my regular Nintendo and told me to STFU!

The beginning of my story goes back six years, when I was in eighth grade. With me being in French immersion at the time, most of my classes were fairly small, and almost all of them were filled with the same, familiar faces. Now, I'm pretty awkward in social situations, but because of how often the lot of us saw each other, it goes without saying that even an oddball like me managed to make some friends. It was around this time that I met Chelsea-Chelsea (kibby666 at the time), the girl to whom I credit my being here in the first place. Chelsea was an AMAZING artist. Still is amazing, I'm sure, and she was a huge inspiration to me. Her talents, combined with the fact that I started to watch anime
