It's a Dragon's World pt. 8 It's a Dragon's World
Pt. 8 A Trip to the Dragon Realm
I slept in my bed. Or whatever you could call it. I had been dreaming about what I'll be like when I'm fully dragon. I imagined that I'd be somewhat short since I'd be a dragon child. I dreamt that I had a long snout and two beautiful horns growing out of my head. My horns in my dream were a bloodish red. My nostrils were instead two sli
All new fursuit makers, are you ready?Something that has been going around in my head for the past week as I've watched a ton of new makers jumping out of the woodworks, eager to take on commissions. Making suits is great and can be a great hobby, but for those that are wanting to continue making them beyond the Hobby mark, ask yourself these questions...All new fursuit makers, are you ready?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
1. Do I have the time to dedicate to this?
On average I will work 12-16 hour 'shift' days making suits, 6 days a week. I will take a day or two off to loosen up and relax, but perhaps ever 2 weeks or so. To keep up with the demand and the work load it takes a ton of my time, often sacrificing fun events such as the movies or a bon fire.
2. Do you have the space?
I started working off of my bed, then out of the spare bedroom. Small projects don't take up space, but larger ones certainly do. Do you have the space needed for furs, tools, cutting, sewing, and other things of the sort?
3. Do you have the dedication?
Fursuit making can not only be rewarding, but it can also be

me in Equestria? part 0I wake up christmas morning on the couch for another uneventful day. I get up and walk over to the fireplace, its gone out again. I sigh as I start feeling the 10 below temperature inside my house. I start a new fire as my older sister Kelley walks up the stairs beaming at the prospect of christmas day. I feel sad for her. Even though she is older than me her soul hasnt been crushed and her dreams havent been shattered. She can find happiness in even the smallest of things while I wallow in my own misery by the time I finally get the fire going my mom walks out of her room and tells me to make her coffee. As I walk up the fairly decorated stairs to the kitchen I look at my home. it has a feeling of happiness, not too strong but definitely not weak. It makes me sick to my stomach. I make her coffee and grab the one present I got for christmas out from under our weak little fake tree. I know that it is a watch because I looked at it a couple days ago.

me in Equestria? part 3It was the one person that I feared, the person who even after three years I still feared and respected, the one person who could make me drop to my knees in awe. My Father. He was in a ball of magic, his body bloody and mangled. I ran past the princess to him and started to try to figure out how he had gotten in this state. When I didn't feel a pulse I collapsed in a bawling fit. The man who had kept me sane while I was in my world. He kept my mind from reverting to what it was now. I realized that I had become, I had become a sick shadow of a man that enjoyed torturing the animals that I ate. I had become what I was afraid of. And now that my father was in front me dying all I wanted was to save him, I had reverted to myself. I turned to the ponies and begged, "Please save him, I don't care what you do with me just save my father!" the yellow one was the first to walk over and look at him.

I chuckled and said, "Eeyup, my own brew. or would you prefer wine?" she looked at me shocked and took a beer, after an hour of drinking she had gotten me talking about my past. i told her how bored i was with my home and my family. that this world was the best thing that had ever happened to me. it was a good conversation untill the dragon came out and saw twilight passed out on myme in Equestria? part 52 years ago in Personal More Like This

I was escorted to a room that had a warm tapestry, it felt wrong for what was about to happen. I walked over to the stone chair that had been set out for me in front of the two alicorns but did not sit down. We looked at each other for several minutes before Celestia said, "Well then, what do you think your punishment should be? Because it's obvious that we can't let you off scot free." I gave her a smile that told her that I was nuts and said, "I have been in this world for three years now, forcibly ripped from my own. This has twisted my spirit and mind past recognition, as such I cannot return to my world even as it is. I would be deemed a threat to my own kind.

You see my people are omnivores. If you don't know what that means I'll tell you. It means that I eat both plants and meat. I eat animals. My people slaughter them, sometimes just for the fun of taking the life of an innocent animal. This is the reason I can't live here. So I am going to be living in the everfree forest. It seems the most similar to my world and the animals have no connection to the rest of this world so I can eat them with a clean conscious."

According to the Chinese zodiac, 2012 has ushered in the year of the dragon upon the world stage.
The Great DragonSome of you know I am in the military and some of you do not. Let me explain something like everyone else I have many faults and issues and there are certainly many far better and more deserving people out there doing what they do best to make the world a better place so you can imagine when to my great surprise a dear friend of mine, we'll call him Red Coat (a nickname he likes to go by he's British after all) presented me with a poem he wrote about me. What many of you do not know is that I am a certifiable Dragon Nut! I have Dragon stickers on my vehicle! Yes I am one of them! Anyway my best mate Red Coat just like me is an enlisted NCO and leader among leaders. Now Red Coat is the guy who wins and deserves all the awards and medals and praise his amazing work ethic and dedication deserves he is nothing but EPIC WIN!

And in almost a month, I'll be celebrating my one-year anniversary with Pokeumans, as well as my meetaversary with a select few members in the group. Since last year, my time here on DA had become a memorable one, and my friends' list on DA has expanded.To All My Friends, Part 12 years ago in Personal More Like This
I started by making friends with only a few people here on DA. In a matter of minutes, as well as a huge expansion with the addition of watching a select few artists from many popular fan groups, I now have almost 500 friends to turn to here on DA whenever I needed help. But for this series of journals, I'm only gonna mention 96 friends.
This 8-part journal series will feature 12 users each, and everyone is listed alphabetically, numbers going first, so if you're not featured in any of the parts, then you may end up in a future part.

me in Equestria? part 8A week had passed and most of my bloodlust had been slated. Walking through the path that led back to ponyville I couldn't help but think of how everypony had fared with me gone, and of how the princesses would try to punish me. Lost in my thoughts I didn't notice as a yellow blur tackled me. I grunted as the sword in my heart was pushed deeper. As I stood up the Pegasus noticed all the weapons shoved into my body. Needless to say she jumped back in horror. I laughed as I pulled the weapons out and said, "Relax Fluttershy, I'm immortal remember? Anyway I'm going to see somepony if you want to come with your more than welcome. She nodded and we walked at a moderate pace until we got to our destination, the home of Doctor Whooves. He had helped me tame my wild side more than a few times over the years and I was hoping that he could do it again. I knocked on the door five times before Derpy finally opened the door.

I laughed and said "Cross my heart, hope to fly Stick a cupcake in my eye If to Pinkie, I might lie I shall kiss my ass goodbye." She looked kind of surprised and disgusted at that last part but accepted it and let me go. I flashed into my cave and drank the potion letting its power quickly take effect. I laughed to myself as the consequences started showing up. For the next ten minutes I would be puking blood, come to think of it I don't know what color my blood is anymore. I supposed I would figure out and flashed back to pinkie. I smiled as I held in my vomit and strolled over to her, everypony was giving me a wide berth.

Blue LavaI have discovered something awesome. Something squishy Nel should do.Blue Lava2 months ago in Personal More Like This
You are looking at blue lava! That is not a recolor, it's not a trick, it's real blue lava. There is a volcano in Indonesia that is a sulfur mine for the island. And when it erupts, because there's so much sulfur on the volcano, the lava turns blue.
Sulfur as many of you new to chemistry may have learned, is a yellow mineral, but when you light it on fire, it burns with a blue flame. So that is why this is happening. It also creates a toxic gas that is highly poisonous to humans.
So now that blue lava does in fact exist, guess what I gotta have Neltharion do! He's gotta spit blue lava now! I have to draw him like this. Have him like down huge cakes of sulfur and then...blech...blue lava! And best yet, it would be an excellent breath weapon
me in Equestria? part 12All hell broke loose as I had some clones distract them and slaughter as many as they could while I used my dark rainboom to get to my armor quickly. I looked back for only a second to see demons start filing out of the portal. As soon as I put on my armor I sent literally hundreds of clones with specific instructions: kill as many as you can excluding my father. They sprinted to the fight with war cries in their throats and me taking my battle form, a lycan. (Lycans are more wolf based than werewolves. They can shift appearance when they want, night or day. They represent more of a large walking wolf with a man's posture, and of course much more muscular than werewolves.) I howled as I sent shadow wolves to fight with the clones and joined them in combat. The clones were either shot with too many bullets at once to regenerate or incinerated with fire before they got a chance to fight while the wolves forced them to send out their close combat squads. They consisted mainly of demons anme in Equestria? part 122 years ago in Personal More Like This

I could easily heal the wounds but the loss of blood was a different story altogether. When I finally arrived they were all sleeping. I sighed; it was time for me to leave. I opened a portal back to ponyville and a note. My eyes watered as I remembered all the pleasant times we had together, even if we didn't start off as friends I know that my life had been so much better with them. That was why I had to leave, I am a monster. Sure ill check in on them every few weeks but they'll never know it. I'm sure that everything will be better without a scourge in their mists. My body started evaporating as Twilight woke up. I gave her a small smile as tears were falling freely from my eyes. As the last tear hit the ground I put a tiny bit of magic in it.

The suggestion should come from the Literature gallery.Please send your suggestions to me or Halatia, but not more than one of us! If you're sending me the note, please put "DD suggestion" in the topic, and send only one  deviation suggestion per note. It'll help me keep track of suggestions. You can also use the Suggest DD script, in which case, it'll fill everything out for you on its own, as well as make sure the artist hasn't received a DD in the last three months.If you'd like, you can add a brief description telling me why you think the piece deserves a DD.I probably won't reply. But that's only because of time-eating gremlins! I look at and read every suggestion sent to my message center.

They were at each-others' throats about what to do about me, I was obviously an oddity with great power. They argued for hours about how my presence would affect the balance of power in Equestria.
