New Halloween CONTEST!EDIT: Please Submit works to the "Submission SORT" Folder
Alright, It's time to announce the rules and regulations for our Halloween contest!
Obviously, the theme is Halloween.
But, there will be certain things that we will be looking for:
1. Great Color Palette- We want it bright and colorful!
2. If you go horror, go all the way- guts, brains, we will love to see it
3. We would love to see your dark side- want to be a bit twisted? Go for it, within reason of course
(I mean, I don't want to see decapitated babies, omg, I'd cry)
4. We want to see something original. Yeah, cannon characters and stories are great, but we want to see YOU!
5. We want to see that you had fun with it!
Now, I know that there are those of you out there that are better with a pen than a brush (or whatever it is you do art with XD), so, we have a little something for you as well
Write your scariest short story, something that will have someone rolling in bed at nigh

Vic Birthday PICTURE BOOK PROJECT CONCLUDED YO! This is now closed! Thank you everyone who participated! It was a fun project to work on! I will start a donation pool right away!Vic Birthday PICTURE BOOK PROJECT CONCLUDED2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So here goes. This is The Picture Book Project! We plan on taking these months to compile a book of pictures of you Rangers with birthday cards for Vic and send the huge old book to him for his birthday!!
The Book will have a few Rangers per page, with a little note from their Rangers about 300 words in length, the picture itself will be a picture of one of you guys/or a whole group of you guys if you have Ranger friends, holding a big Birthday Card in front for Vic that says “Happy Birthday Vic!” which you guys will custom make.
The great thing about this is that Vic gets to see all of you guys as well as your card, even though many of you live in different countries and places all over the globe. As long as you have a camera, you guys can participate in this. It’s our goal to get as many o
Real-life DenmarkHe exists. In my chemistry lecture. Thank goodness he's only in my chemistry lecture.Real-life Denmark3 years ago in Personal More Like This
You all know Denmark, right? The tall, loud-mouthed, to-the-point, arrogant, hot-headed, oblivious, and lovable Dane? Well, someone like that sits about five seats away from me every time I go to class. He has the same upright messy sandy blonde hair as Denmark, blue eyes, tall height, loud voice, and ideal facial structure like Denmark might if he was real. In short, his looks aren't bad, either.
The problem? He's just like Denmark. Oh, is he ever. He doesn't shut up. At all. He has weird friends, but thinks he's friends with everyone. He always makes sure he's around a group of girls because he thinks he can understand them. He doesn't realize he's being too loud for the people around him to hear what the professor's trying to say. He thinks he knows everything, but he's usually about halfway each time. He works hard, but he brags more than his actions carry him through the day. He's s

Bathroom StoryOkay, I normally don't post things about my personal life anymore, but since it's going to be a slow day, I thought I'd share this.Bathroom Story3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I was minding my own business when my dad messaged me on the computer saying "There's a leek in the bathroom."
Naturally, I asked him which bathroom had the leak since there are three bathrooms in my house.
My dad said it was mine. (I have an entire bathroom to myself.)
I was a little bothered since I'll be going home in a week so coming home to a leaking bathroom didn't sound too enticing.
Then my dad asked if I wanted to see a picture.
Of course, I said yes.
Here's the picture.
Do you see the leak? Because I sure don't.
Wait! Wh-Whazzat on the toilet paper? Why it's...it's a...
That's right! It's a freaking leek! I looked back at the original text, and sure enough, my dad said "There is a leek in the bathroom!"

#ENGLISH VOICE ACTORS FOR ATTACK ON TITANUPDATE ABOUT ENGLISH DUB 23 March 2014:#ENGLISH VOICE ACTORS FOR ATTACK ON TITAN2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Guys, there is a trailer that has been released. I was scrolling through my Tumblr, when I came across it. As for the Dub voices, they all had me fangirling. I think Eren's fits him really well. Here's the Trailer:
Alright, I'm going to try make this journal as calm as possible. I went onto my e-mail, and I got a letter from Funimation saying that if you have an account, you could have a sneak peak of the English Voice Actors for Attack on Titan.
I'm internally fangirling at the moment, and I'm trying my best not to throw my keyboard in excitement.
Anyways, since I don't have a Funimation Elite account, I took the matters in my own hands and decided to look it up. Now, I'm not sure if these are official. Can't trust internet for everything, eh?

WOW. I am completely blown away by the wonderful gifts and amazing artwork you sent for my birthday! I wasn't expecting it at all, and when I opened the envelope and saw all the beautiful art, I was humbled and moved beyond words. In moments like this, I ask myself what I ever did to deserve such kindness from so many.

Now that that's been established, I'd like to announce that I am throwing a super special awesome Hetalia contest! (Yes, that was a YGOTAS reference there.) Cause I can! Cause I want to have an excuse to read a bunch of fresh fanfics! And because I have no life, as I established before!
Alright, so you probably want to know what the rules and restrictions are!
RULES AND RESTRICTIONS
- This is a Hetalia fanfic contest. So obviously, you must have Hetalia characters in the story.
- The fic may be of any pairing, whether it be CanonxCanon, CanonxOC, CanonxReader, no pairing, or whatever. However, if you do choose to use an OC as a major character, please send me a note with a brief physical description and a few sentences about the character's personality.
- Mature content is okay. Just remember to put on a warning for it!
- Crossovers are okay, but if I don't know what a fandom is, then I probably won't under
Things That I Hate With a Passion**WARNING: THIS IS A RANTRANTRANTRANTRANTRANT AND MAY BE OFFENSIVE.**Things That I Hate With a Passion3 years ago in Personal More Like This
These are not numbered by how much I hate them, they are numbered randomly. Also for some of these I don't really "hate" them I just dislike them. I do understand this does not apply to all people. When I say "you" I am not talking about you personally unless you do these things. If you do do these things you are probably still a good person so you shouldn't take this personally. I don't know you and I'm not acting like I do know you. This is just a way to hopefully get some of you to STOP doing this crap that is so annoying to me. Yes. Yes I am trolling here because I don't see it as worth my time to troll in a comment when I see this actually happening.
I will probably keep adding to this so I don't make a bunch of useless hate journals whenever I get pissed.

Rant - STOP ATTACKING THE READER INSERT WRITERSI've sat silent long enough. I can't let this slide ... because I have seen it on multiple occasions. These little brats that think they're better than everyone else and think their opinion is the superior one have been picking on people who write/read reader inserts. Personally, I don't see the harm in reading/writing them ... most likely because I read/write them myself. For me, it's a bit of harmless fun and I get to make people happy with the stories I come up with. I mean, an Anime/Manga guy or girl is practically perfect. Yes, they're fictional ... but tell me you haven't fantasized about being with those guys at some point. Yes, I understand that there are some REALLY bad fanfics out there, but it's that minority that's making it worse than the rest of us. I've seen some inserts with horrible spelling mistakes and grammar or they've done next to no research on the topic they're coveringRant - STOP ATTACKING THE READER INSERT WRITERS3 years ago in Personal More Like This

SnK English Voices - My Thoughts and OpinionsDecided to take a break from writing depressing stories to talk about the English Dub, which will be premiering at Anime Boston!SnK English Voices - My Thoughts and Opinions2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I guess I should start by acknowledging the opinion that when it comes to localized anime, the Original Japanese Voices tend to be more well-liked than English Dubbed Voices in light of being... well, the original, and also due to the fact that Japanese Seiyuu are often tried and true masters of the art of voice acting. Comparisons will always be made between Dubbed and Original, and there's no avoiding that. That said, Funimation has really worked hard to set the bar high for English Dubbing, and I know they have what it takes to do a worthy job dubbing SnK.
When watching dubbed anime, I always try to keep an open mind and not let preconceptions cultivated from the original Japanese voices hinder my enjoyment. Characters will sound different, and that's to be expected. They're being voiced by a different

!!So we've passed the one year mark!!Exactly a year ago, on September 12th, I created my 'cherrypikkins' account on dA and made my debut with the first ever chapter of the Just Be series. Over 100 deviations, 1000 watches and 100000 page views later, look how far we've come. @_@ I swear, it feels like only yesterday since this account's humble beginnings, and I can't believe how fast the time flies!

Looking back, I think it's safe to say that the biggest hits over the past year have been the 'Just Be' series, followed by 'Reset'. I honestly didn't realize you guys would like it so much when I first started, even though I had so many ideas planned for this account. But now that I know that there are people out there who genuinely enjoy my stories, I really do want to keep on writing for you guy

Current Finished Projects (And Vic's Reactions!)Hey you awesome Rangers!! You have probably already seen these if you've been in the DA Rangers a while.Current Finished Projects (And Vic's Reactions!)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
We actually have these links on the front page but a few of you have asked me for them. So I thought, why not feature them here journal style?
For those of you new to the DA Rangers, we often create "Projects" to give to Vic Mignogna (We're also starting some gifts for other awesome voice actors.) We then present the Gifts to Vic on behalf of the DA Rangers and we sometimes record his reaction, so those who were a part of it get to see how excited he gets. We just make the Projects to bring him some joy, and cause creating things for other people is fun! It's just an added bonus Vic often acts like a kid on Christmas whenever we give him something.
Soooo, press the images below to see the different Projects and Reactions if you haven't already seen them! Or just to revisit them. You can find the Projects themselves in the Group Gallery. Have fun!

Oh. A deviant reporting them.
That's depressing to see all the emotions go.
I just want to spread a word that it's no good to report someone's hard work. I'm not trying to bad mouth anyone, but - I mean, maybe it's time to move on with your life instead of reporting deviations for pornographic content.
People actually put their thoughts into their work, and they're full of feelings from deep down.
And I'm sure people don't need pressure on their work that they did out of fun, requests or even commissions.
So yeah. And guys, don't quit because of this.
This is crazy business that we need to deal with; not to run away from.
