OmeN2501, creator of the following deviation, Rain, says in the artist comments:
"Story behind it is pretty simple, they want something form her, she cannot let them have it... no matter the cost"
Who is she?
Now the viewer is left with a series of questions... Who is she? Who is pursuing her? What do they want from her? Why is this thing so important she's willing to take her own life if that means they won't have it? What would happen if they get it? And most importantly; what circumstances lead the pieces of this story up to this point?
The answers to these questions are left open to the viewer. It's up to you to decide who she is.

Short Poem.Well, I wrote this at like midnight Saturday, and with some urging from :iconTalentOfTheWolf:, here it is. Didn't intend it to be public, but oh well. Here's to all the rejects, the misfits, and every dork or dweeb out there who's ever felt lost in their own lives. This is, I suppose, my answer to every (pardon my language) asshat out there who makes someone's life miserable. All you see is how funny your jokes are, but this is what you're really doing. To everyone else, well... Don't be part of the problem. Be the solution.Short Poem.1 year ago in Personal More Like This

What is considered copyright infringement?Due to the growing concern...I have had a lot of people ask me what is considered piracy and what isn't. Things to consider is the Millenium Copy Right act and fair use laws. Funny enough a while back I would have liked a law like SOPA because it would hold a site liable for letting its users plagiarize my artwork. E.g a while back a group on Facebook took my work and refused to credit me, I contacted Facebook and they said they would remove the work, then the admins of the page said they would change it to a private setting so I couldn't access the site and see if my work was still being used without my permission. SOPA would have been useful but now I see that with such power as to hold an entire site liable for a bunch of users actions is dangerous because it can be abused. Also how would you feel if someone like me closed down a huge public web site because a few where taking something of mine? I have learned not to care when my stuff is uploaded elsewhere and shared.

As some of you may remember, back in February, neurotype very naughtily gave me a DD for my Gourmet Novel Recipe. At the time, I declared revenge!
Now, everyone says revenge is a dish best served cold, but I let the food go a bit too cold. I couldn't think of a way that would get revenge against my wonderfully energetic, well spoken CV comrade with her love of cake, her awesome gif collection and poetry fearing quality...

The story takes place in a more or less modern world on a small fictional island of Mangetsu in southern Japan. The only city upon the island, Miura City, has been accidentally contaminated with a prototype bio weapon; namely a virus that has thus far shown to have some interesting symptoms. The entire island is on indefinite quarantine, and very little information from the outside ever makes it in - from the TV to the radio, the broadcasted material seems to be controlled by someone, no dou

There’s something about the brilliant colors of the dying leaves of autumn that reflects the wonders and the sorrows of life. It’s as if by waking up each morning into this beautiful world of natural colors, we are being given our bittersweet reward for surviving another year on the planet. We are regaled with a brief seasonal ceremony of the turning of the leaves, nature’s gift for our eyes as a promise she will soon return after her yearly rest. And then it’s time to let winter’s grey pallor unfold over us in blankets of dark cold rain and bright brisk snows; we sleep, the autumn’s leaves having promised

DeviantART staffers continued showering visitors with stress balls, collectible pins, and swapped stories of their favorite deviantART experiences. It's a long day, but hearing some of the inspirational stories that originate from our humble corner of the Internet are truly inspiring.
Our final Comic-Con panel was held at 12:15 pm, and the topic was "How-To: Creator vs. Audience." Ron Martino (techgnotic) led the panel, which talked about how the digital nature of storytelling on deviantART is changing the way the world interacts with its audiences. Alongside him were Wenqing Yan (yuumei), Brian Kesinger (BrianKesinger), Dave Elliott (DeevElliott), and Hal Hefne

This is Cloud's month!
So we're going to celebrate his up coming bday with another contest
This time the contest is going to be all about Cloud Strife :3 but mostly about Cloud's birthday which is on August 11th and again on August 19th.
(Yeap, he has two birthdays XD)
The name I picked for the theme is the same as last year's which is "Cloud's Birthday Gift" and is basically a contest where you can write or draw a fanart about what will Cloud receive on his birthday.
It can be anything you want :3
- a surprise party,
- a birthday card,
- a cake, etc.
If you want to make a Cloti thing out of it, then it's okay too but remember, you must stick to the birthday theme.
Only 1 entry per person.

This one is way worse... Also the ACTA will restrict internet. NZ already has the system in place. I talked about it a while ago. The three strike system basically means your internet provider is monitoring what you do and will cut off your internet if they think you are downloading illegal materials.
By the way SOPA and PIPA aren't dead yet, PIPA is being voted on the 24th and SOPA has been delayed as far as I know.

Life is Beautiful...Isn't it?Life is Beautiful...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
There are magical moments in life where I get the opportunity to remember that I'm nothing but an insignificant living being among 8 billion others.. on a planet among 8 in a solar system among billions in a galaxy among trillions and all in one universe-- possibly among others?-- where whether or not I died, would hardly leave a mark even in the face of my own city.
The world goes on without you.
Yet I once realized, that a meaning in life, is to give life a meaning.
Live your dreams! You only live once.
Don't do idiotic dares for the sake of saying you did them-- go tell that cute boy or girl you like them!
Go tell the world your name!
Why must everything be over after one failure..?
Sure, the humiliation of having everyone look down upon you is torture itself... but when you get back up and show everyone that you're somebody, it won't be you who'd be ashamed for not realizing your potential sooner-- but them!

"Kyo, I like Yuki."
"You what!!!!!" screaed Kyo. "I said that I LIKE YUKI!!!!" screamed (Y/N) back to Kyo. Kyo became dazed and apparently stopped breathing for a couple of minutes. "Kyo are you alright." (Y/N) said curiously. "No I am not all right why do you have to love that damn rat... why him... why alwasy him." mumbled Kyo. You looked at him with sad eye "I am sorry Kyo but for some reason I just love him. I can't explain it but I think it is love." Kyo looked at you, "You think it is love or you know it is love." You just stood there now confused as ever.

Winter's Hold - Feature #1.With the first snowfall happening before Thanksgiving, I have proclaimed that winter is officially here, even if the calendar doesn't say so. I have been wishing for snow ever since the leaves fell off the trees, because just the plain, bare landscape gets old after a short time. Not much to photograph without good scenery. So, with that being said, I will start on my next feature series, having to do with winter. I hope you all enjoy these photographs and visit each other personally to give it more favorites and comments; they sure deserve it.
