Confronting what happened.So, basically, the war was won by default. I pced their members including the deputy and leader, and they decided to not reply. And then Brook began to lie to my members, saying it wasn't time yet, when the timezone we agreed on was 9 EST, and I am in eastern time. And when I confronted her about it, she said she never said that. Shes deciding to put words into my warriors mouth, along with that. So, she never membered us. I told her that I do not want my warriors on her chat, yet she makes them members of her chat after I tell her to please not to. Her warriors continue to childishly harass my members, when the only choice that my pack has left is to block them, including the leader herself. She continues to make up excuses with no logic behind us. She will freely fuck with us, along with her clan, yet idiotically said that my reasons for wanting to attack are foolish.

Some say they will do harm to themselves cause they just want attention. But some really mean it. Some are friends of mine. Many are kids like me. Things will and usually do, pass.

Finally, I came upon one that sparked my interest, I soon joined it afterwards and passed with flying colors c': I honestly don't want anything to do with any other clan/pack/tribe thing. I've finally found where I belong. I would feel bad if I ever get a mate in a different clan ( LOL, me getting a mate? ) because I would prob be spending most of my time with my fam. I have never been so happy being in a pack before o.o maybe because I was never really gave attention or talked to this much before ( lonely soul ).

I no longer find any joy in participating in such a role-play.
There are so many issues with TT Warriors and I can't stand it anymore.
Everyone argues with each other way too much. Some even have tantrums and attack each other.
The names (Clan + Warriors/wolves) are getting super ridiculous. Honestly since when do warriors cats understand what friggin chemicals or elements are? Or the gigantic vocabulary that is being used as names. I'll admit I've done it in the past but I use pretty much regular, nature names. Names are so horrible that you can't even pronounce them or easily spell that. Geez.
You all are SICK. All you pigs do is bully each other repeatedly until they end up quitting or doing horrible things. Yes, I've actually accidentally did it once due to me lacking control over my anger cough and it's som

seriouslywhy are people making such a big deal over some people leaving their clans/packs. seriously?? its fucking role play. stop taking it up the ass, and just brush it off your shoulder. " oh youre not my friend anymore, oh i hate you, oh youre not loyal because u left. oh shame on u. oh fuck u, " and than it becomes more of a problem than it should be. a real clan/pack would respect their choice, and move on, not cause a huge problem to where everyone has to get involved. seriously, grow up and act the age you say you are. and than the journals, too? yes cause everyone must know what a traitor a former warrior of yours is. grow up like damnn. some people have good, reasonable, and respectful reasons towards why they left, dont turn it into something ugly. its total bull shit.seriously5 months ago in Personal More Like This

Everybody on DeviantArt seems to know about the Daily Deviations, or DD's. The handful of artworks that makes it to the frontpage every day. The artworks that are shown at the bottom of the site all day long, and get loads of exposure. I guess they're the wet dream for many people on DA.
DD's are usually a reason for discussion. I can't even begin to count the topics on the forums that are about why some deviations are chosen over others, and how the quality of those deviations keep declining year after year. Not many people know, however, that's it's not entirely up to the staff which works are picked. And that we can have our own vote on this.

Login problems - solvedFirst of all, thanks for all of your support. Some people have accused me from thinking this whole thing up, just as some kind of sick way to gain attention. It honestly saddens me that some people think this way... but I guess people are just people. My only intention was to inform people why I wouldn't be posting messages/art for the next few weeks (or whatever time it takes them to get the issue solved). And maybe get some helpful feedback from the community. DA has become one of my main social media channels nowadays. Bigger than facebook, for me. So you can imagine it has quite the impact to be locked out from your main source of online interaction... as I have no other means of contact with many of the people here (I don't have their facebook or e-mail).Login problems - solved1 year ago in Personal More Like This

There's been some confusion and disagreement about the portrayal of Gengar recently, so I would like to explain why things in this story are as they are.
TL;DR: Skip unless you want to see a bunch of stuff about Gengar and obscure game mechanics
Everything in VF is based on something in a game, or an anime episode, or something somewhere in the Pokéverse, even if it's something very small and throwaway. This is not to say that our take on it is the only correct one, because there are as many opinions as there are Pokemon fans, and nobody's idea is necessarily wrong! However, I do want to show that none of our story choices are arbitrary--everything we've done has something behind it--and I am happy to explain our reasoning at any time if people want to know.
Let's look at the Shadow Pokemon thing, because it's a good example of how the VF writing process works.

Another year that went by so terribly fast. And as much as I am against posting journals that are too personal (especially on the internet, since you never know who is gonna read them), these end-of-year overviews kinda became a tradition. The 2011 and 2012 versions were great to look back at. Even now. So I can see what kind of shit occupied my mind back then. And even now some events of the past still manage to inspire me to a certain level.
So here we go!

Let's talk about wondertrade!Back in fourth gen D/P, when the GTS was a new and magical thing, I liked to collect pokemon with weird nicknames. I don't really nickname my own guys, or when I do they have unimaginative names like "Lady". My favorite GTS finds of that gen were a French shellos called P'tite-Lim (Limace being French for slug; thus Li'l Sluggie), a Turtwig inexplicably named Fridge, and a Japanese Gardevoir called 9%3=3, because I suppose math is the universal language. I will forever regret not being able to get that Azurill called ASSFACE, though I suppose its name would've been removed anyway if I loaded it into Bank.Let's talk about wondertrade!8 months ago in Personal More Like This

Anyone bother to explain me how it is possible that 2 people caught the exact same thing on screenshot???
After hearing from multiple people having experience with more than 1 guy catching their kiriban, I can only come to the conclusion that it's reasonable.
DA's counter is probably flawed, in the sense that it only counts an IP once. Which would lead people that spend hours refreshing my page, being able to keep track of the pageviews without actually influencing themselves.

But even though temporary, it did changed my perspective on some matters.
It's weird how much the internet can become an influence, and how this process goes so unnoticed. At a certain point the countless voices of people around you blend into a continuous buzz. A buzz that you soon get so familiar with that you forget there was a life before it. I guess that's what social media does in general; creating a buzz. An artificial need for you to continuously be online and check your messages, because you might just miss something otherwise. Life, in general, has become so infused with the internet that it sometimes scares me. I'm part of the internet industry. Hell, I even made it my job! But even I sometimes find myself wondering where the time has gone that I could work on an artwork for hours straight, without feeling that creeping itch to check my messages.

I was one among 4 cars that crashed upon each other, at the highway this morning. As I had trouble moving my head, I was taken by an ambulance to the hospital for further investigation.

My physical condition wasn't already too good, but it pretty much went down the drain over the last few weeks. Migraine attacks have been shutting my body down almost completely. With attack sequences that last for over a week, and no medicines that work anymore, I'm pretty much at the end of my energy.
I've spoken to various doctors over the last few weeks.
None them were able to provide a simple solution for the issue, as the nature of my illness isn't one that's easy to solve.

I'll be going for long term rehabilitation therapy soon. In the meantime doctors recommended me to take a break from as many stress factors as is possible, under

And if there's one thing that I have in common with those Indie game makers is that we're both artists and we're both working on an own project, although that project is very different in nature.

One of the people that were followed, was Phil Fish, the developer of a game called Fez.
While his game seemed to be pretty good looking (I'm not a gamer, so I've never played it), the drama around the making and the release of the game was what I remembered most. Threatening to kill a fellow co-worker and that kind of stuff. At the end of the movie, both I and m
