How to Train your Dragon by krissy
How to Train Your Dragon
The island of Berk once had a troublesome problem with looting airborne raiders, but thanks to Hiccup and his dragon/best friend, Toothless, a peaceful coexistence reigns in the Viking land. It wasn’t an easy undertaking to get to this point, but audiences all over have sure enjoyed the journey of these action packed films.

Adoptables Account With Friends!Hey Everypony!Adoptables Account With Friends!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I have made an Adopt account.
But it's not just my account, it also belongs to SpaceSpam , N0RWHY and Pocku-True
Basically it is where we will be posting our adopts
The account has only just been made, so there is no adoptables on there at the moment and we aren't sure when there will be.
But, if you have any ideas of what adoptables we should make, please suggest some ideas below.
We are also still sorting out the profile so that will also take a while to do.
Oh, and we all have our own accounts. So that means we will be working on other things then adoptables.
I'll update this journal when we bring some adoptables out.

ERIDAN LESSONS.This is mostly in part to my little honey bun Andy wanting to know how to talk like EridanERIDAN LESSONS.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
and partly because
... I want to explain Eridan's accent.
If Eridan says "what"
as most of you must know
he says "wwhat".
I learned Eridan's accent by watching thousands of voice acting videos on Youtube.
If you want to say "what" as Eridan, simply say "wuh-whut."
So that it comes out that you say the "w" sound twice.
If Eridan were to say "very"
he would say "wery".
It's pretty easy- wherever you would say a V
say a W
Those darned G's
If Eridan were to say "something"
he would say "somethin'."
This one is pretty easy~
If Eridan were to talk to someone
he'd call him "Sol"
this one's simple once you figure out what to shorten someone's name to.
Let's use Andy.
His name is Andrew, so I would use "And" for my Eridan accent.
so I'd call him "And" instead of "Andy" or "Andrew". :3
I HOPE THAT WASN'T CONFUSING LOL
A Rant About StorylinesI'm not going to kiss Game Freak's ass and pretend there's absolutely nothing wrong with Pokemon X/Y, but...good god, people, lighten up! This game gets WAY more hate than it deserves, and most of the main criticisms are attacking the wrong elements. I can't look up ONE song from the game on YouTube without being bombarded with: "Team Flare is the worst villainous team to date!" "The gym leaders were the most unmemorable in all of Pokemon!" "This is the worst track in the game, and one of the worst in Pokemon history!" "The story was horrible after what they gave us in Black and White!" "The gyms are a disappointment!" "The rivals are a disappointment!" "The champion was a disappointment!" "It was all such a disappointment!"A Rant About Storylines1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Guys, quit vomiting fire for two seconds and let's talk through this.
The biggest of X/Y's criticisms seems to be that the story sucked compared to B/W. Now, as an aspiring author and part-time critic, I specialize in storylines and like to dive into the meaning be

Be prepared for quite the wall of text friends.
Here's the thing. A lot of you know that I do not celebrate any holidays other than Thanksgiving, if it can really be counted as one. ^^'
So no Halloween. (Which is fine by me, btw)
So as much as I would love to cosplay and stay out late with my friends and all that, I can't. So it got me thinking! (oh no-)
Sob story over. The point is, this'll be a contest where you draw one (Or more) of your character(s) cosplaying/dressing up/whatever you'd like to call it as their favorite characters. Or your favorite characters. From anything, tv shows, movies, anything! Anything'll go. uvu
There will be 1,000 on the table here. 800 to first place, 200 to second. And that will probably grow towards the end of the contest, and a possible third place may be added depending.
That, and I'm gonna draw some fanart of your character(s) i
deviantART Honors Spirit Day TweetdeviantART Honors Spirit Day4 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
You might have noticed that deviantART is wearing purple today, as October 20, 2010 marks Spirit Day -- an event to honor teens who have lost their lives to anti-LGBT bullying.
While this specific type of bullying has received a lot of media attention as of late, we'd like to bring to light how bullying is a wide-spread problem that impacts everyone -- regardless of age, gender, sexual orientation, physical ability, ethnicity, race, or profession. And the recent surge of teen suicides associated with bullying can't be ignored or overlooked.

Why did JK Rowling Even Write Harry Potter?WAIT, DON'T HURT ME!!Why did JK Rowling Even Write Harry Potter?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The title of my journal is the title someone else's Tumblr post that i came across earlier, and because I'm bored, i decided to type out the post (misspellings included!) for the DA community to read --->
"Look, I've been a Twihard for a wile, and resently I decided to try Harry Potter. It's just dumm. When Stephanie Meyer wrote Twilght, she had a messige in mindthat we should find love, even it it's hard too get to. She tells us wondurfel things like how to make important choise and how hard being young can be. All Harry Potter is is a bunch of stupi guys with wands running around trying to defeat Snape. I mean, is there any writing style? Nope. Any character development? Nope. Twilight got 5 movies, and the last one is split into 2 becuz people actually want it. Harry potter got like 3 movies. Idk, I don't even care. I'm just saying, there's no point to Harry Potter and it's dumb, just like everything in England that gets put in a book. Oh a

Christmas MYO Event :: Winners postedWhat is a Guui Pup?Christmas MYO Event :: Winners posted4 months ago in Personal More Like This
Guui Pups, or Guui(s), are average-sized canines. They generally come in natural colors and can be any dog breed, ranging from the small chihuahua to the strong great dane. What makes Guui Pups special is their completely goo body parts. Most Guui Pups have gooey underbellies and tails, but it is possible for any body part to be made of goo. Every Guui Pup bonds to one special item, most commonly inanimate items. In rarer circumstances, Guui Pups can bond with food (especially sweets), aquatic animals, and eggs; they act as an excellent incubator. Once a Guui Pup has chosen to bond with an item, they will store it inside of their gooey stomachs.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! This year, we will be having a MYO creativity event! Simply put: you will have a handful of traits you can use to create a Guui in your mind.
This Guui must then be described to us as clear as possible, including bonding items and a perso

Most denizens of the West think of New Zealand as a little known outpost of civilization somewhere beyond Australia at the ends of the Earth.
Could any land be any farther from the European motherland, birthplace of the Renaissance that is the Genesis-point of the visual arts narrative we continue expanding and evolving today? And yet this remote country of islands in the Pacific has suddenly become a cinematic storytelling powerhouse, a film-friendly factory for the creation of some of the most important touchstone mass entertainment experiences to influence our popular culture in recent years.
