[APHELEMENTARY] the dream poemthe shining sun in the day sky
and the moon glow at night
the eclipse is where they meet
so that the future is bright
but nobody knows, nobody cares
for the stars that fall down there
they will not return again
the eclipse is why
all of the dwellers cry
see the sun!
see the moon!
see the stars!
sometimes you will see a star shooting down
all of their dreams torn at the seams
what does it all mean?
do you want to figure out how
you could make change right now?
take my hand and you shall see
the world of Elementary
now you have heard and caught a glimpse
you can cross through the eclipse
can the stars return again
and get back to the sky?
or are they left to die..?
Mel's Guide to StoryBuilding [STEP ONE]i'm sure none of you remember this:Mel's Guide to StoryBuilding [STEP ONE]10 months ago in Personal More Like This
But I said I'd do this thing so... To summarise that thumbnailed journal there, I was pondering tutorials. I don't think I'm good enough to do art tutorials, but then I thought of a plan:
I could go into giving advice about developing characters, developing settings, developing plotlines and most importantly, developing a love for your creation to the point of wanting to share them with others.So that's the kind of angle I'm heading towards. Now, I'll be updating this journal as I think of things, or if one of you asked a handy question. I'll be making an FAQ section if I get a lot of questions. I haven't got much of a planned structure for this journal, so please bear with me.
Welcome to Mel's Guide to StoryBuilding!
I know I'm thinking of story ideas constantly to the point of almost a new story idea each day/couple of days/etc. I also know of others who wish to tell stories but they're not

okay PiriHon fans listen upLet me start off this journal by saying THIS DOES NOT APPLY TO ALL PIRIHON FANS. So don't take this message to be directed at you in particular. You'll know if it's being directed at you, I'm sure.okay PiriHon fans listen up1 year ago in Personal More Like This
And this is my message:
Okay, so there's a significant enough portion of PiriHon fans that also like to hate on Taiwan and the pairing of Japan/Taiwan. I see fanworks that deliberately bash on Taiwan and make the Japan/Taiwan ship look horrible, just so their precious PiriHon looks *~so much better~* in comparison.
Yeah. STOP. Why you should stop:
1. Taiwan is a fantastic character and isn't a 'horrible bitch rival for Japan's affections'! She doesn't even have a canon crush on Japan anyway, she's about as much a ship rival as America or England, heck, less so, Ameripan and AsaKiku have a lot more canon interactions. Seriously, the basis for targeting this character for hate is pathetic. 100% pathetic. Grow a pair.
2. Bashing a character or ship does not make your ship look any

When people antagonize a country, especially when mixing Hetalia into it then that is where I draw the line and hate the fandom for it. I swear to god, don’t you fucking dare antagonize a country! I seen people do this too many fucking times with North Korea, Iran, Iraq and many other countries in the Middle East, Asia and Africa. There are reasons North Korea is the way it is, there history and government! Think about it for a moment, Iran and Iraq are not evil either! I’ve actually met people from there in real life myself and they were the sweetest of people out there! They were so nice and sweet and when media and people pull this shit on them I really feel offended! I actually feel very bad for them, they don’t deserve that shit.
Just because they are pro-Russia and Hate America, doesn’t make them ‘evil’ just for the sake of i
stuff I'd appreciate you glancing atFIRST THING TO GLANCE AT:stuff I'd appreciate you glancing at7 months ago in Personal More Like This
me and :iconprateh-kampuchea: are preparing this group: :iconhetalia-oc-workshop: Hetalia-OC-Workshop
It's a group for helping people with your OCs. We'll help out with OCs and promise to be honest, unbiased and constructive. We'll help with making OCs not just accurate and fleshed out in both design and personality, but we don't mind pointing out ways to portray your OC to make them unique and memorable!
We'll give further details when the group is up and ready, but I'd love it if you guys watched/joined the group and helped support its future. uvu
other groups you should consider joining if you haven't already are :iconkoreaxphilippines:, :iconaphcolombia:, :iconaph-elementary: and :iconbalkantalia: - I mean, if you're already watching me, it makes sense to watch the groups I moderate, right??//slapped

PLOT BUNNY MASTERPOST [ADDED NEW IDEA!]I figured this was a needed journal after all. I have master posts for quite a few things now, such as my OCs, shippings and favourite characters.PLOT BUNNY MASTERPOST [ADDED NEW IDEA!]8 months ago in Personal More Like This
So after those sort of common journals, there's something else that is a common theme with me. I have a really big thing about coming up with story ideas. The reality however, is that I really do not have the time to draw these all out. So I thought, 'what if I did a master post of all my various story ideas that I know I personally wouldn't have the time to draw out and friends of mine could do the arting side of the story?' Because I love fleshing out story ideas so I'd be happy to do the storyline planning if someone could do the art!
To my surprise, I actually got a lot of feedback from people who actually wanted to do a doujinshi collaboration with me. I hope the interest is still there once you reach the end of the journal!
Hetalia Positivity Project!(PLEASE READ)EDIT 1:Hetalia Positivity Project!(PLEASE READ)1 month ago in Personal More Like This
Added the link to the folder in which I will add the entries AND more additional info/fixed some things.
.::I've had to scrap a lot of projects these year because of time constraints, but I felt it needed to be done. The New Year is upon us, and I feel it may be high time for a positive restart for our fandom. 2015 year is the year of the sheep/ram/lamb. It is supposed to be a peaceful year, so lets start it off peacefully, yeah?
So here's the event name and its gist:
The new year is a time of renewal; reblooming. A chance to change for the better. The project is called "Hetalia, The Blooming World" because of this. It's a time for people to blossom for the new year.
So what is the event about?
To promote positivity in our community.
How will it go down?
Participants will enter artworks of their OC or cannon characters and promote fandom p

LOOK AT THAT UGLY OLD ART
but I think it's time to face the music, I'm probably never going to get back to this doujinshi. So I decided that every once in a while, I'd share my notes for what could have been. And I figured I'd do that arc by arc?
The introduction arc can be read here, and it should make these next notes make sense, for those who didn't know of this story until just now?
These were the original notes I did for the Introduction Arc, which differs slightly from the actual pages but yeah-- XD
After this, I'll detail the Castle Arc and the Diadem Arc. =3= I'll do the arcs after that some other time--

Mini ContestTo actually get the group more active, how about a contest? However, the contest isn't going to be graded on the art, but the development of participating OC's!Mini Contest6 months ago in Personal More Like This
There will be three categories: Great Start, Most Improved, and Going Strong.
This is for those who are just getting started/just made their Hetalia OC!
The goal is to develop your OC as much as possible before the deadline.
Along the way, feel free to ask the admins for help and input, but we won't be able to 100% help with the history and design if you are participating in the contest! However, we will give pointers.
This is for those of you who have had your OC for awhile but have not fully completed it.
Continually develop your OC. That means redesigning for accuracy, adding headcannons, history, culture, etc.
At the deadline, make a master post (be it in a journal or a picture) showing the development of your OC from the time your created it to the deadline. This includes adding the original designs/he
Friend-Zoned in the Pacific? JapanxPhilippinesOnce again, she found herself intrigued by his mysterious dark eyes that were often unreadable. His aura seemed to radiate reserved power, gentility and gracefulness all at the same time. Everything about his culture and country amazed her, but she could not tell whether he ever felt that same way about her as she felt about him. While they were often together, they never engaged in anything the least bit intimate.Friend-Zoned in the Pacific? JapanxPhilippines3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
"Philippines-chan?" His voice broke her thoughts and she blinked and saw Japan smiling at her softly. They were sitting under one of his cherry blossom trees, and the Philippines remembered that he had been trying to explain politics with her before she lost herself in her thoughts.
"I asked you if you would like to join China and me tomorrow morning. We are going to Germany for a few days for a business conference," he repeated patiently.
"Oh," she replied, frowning slightly. The Philippines had hoped that they could have spent more time together in Japan, just the two of t
