Mind = Blown.So... this is the diagnostic criteria for Asperger's Disorder, the same disorder I have, as denoted by the DSM-IV (the "manual" all psychologists use for diagnosis). I had been wanting this specific criteria for a while now, and I finally found it while researching for a paper I'm writing on the disorder.Mind = Blown.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Now, I noticed something as I was reading it, something I had suspected for a long time...
So I fully evaluated this criteria list for Stein.
A.) Qualitative impairment in social interaction, as manifested by at least two of the following:
(1) marked impairment in the use of multiple nonverbal behaviors such as eye-to-eye gaze, facial expression, body postures, and gestures to regulate social interaction
(2) failure to develop peer relationships appropriate to developmental level
(3) a lack of spontaneous seeking to share enjoyment, interests, or achievements with other people (e.g., by a lack of showing, bringing, or pointing out objects of interest to other people)
(4) lack of

I actually don't think Spirit ever had sex with another woman after he married his ex-wife. I think that like Maka, his ex-wife was overreactive and slightly feministic, and she saw cuddling and kissing with other women as offensive to her relationship as most people see sex with other women. Despite what we've seen in the anime/manga, I really can't see Spirit as the type to just want to get into someone's pants. I think he spent time with other women because of personal issues that made him crave attention. I also think that he married his ex-wife in the first place most likely because they were going steady as teens and he got her pregnant, and then they tried to cope with each other in order to raise Maka and not subject her to a young life with a single parent. I don't think Spirit was ready to commit to a relationship of that level and judging by how Maka described her mother's personality he probably felt trapped by her. B

This short fic perfectly describes my view of Stein and also my life with Asperger Syndrome. This take on him pretty much proves he has the disorder and I can sympathize with the ideas in it so much. It's really beautiful to me that someone else thinks he actually cares about people and just doesn't know how to show it.
And this one... The idea of "hallucinating in sounds"... The way it's described here is so much more hypersensory than hallucination... Hearing everything... That's me as well. And the idea of discovery, and all the times he and I both didn't understand what we did wrong because we didn't understand people... All the times we were accused of things we didn't do, deemed bad children... How he and I were worse as children and got better with age... And how our mothers wept over us, were afraid of how we'd live our lives, couldn

:DSo I had another FREAKING AWESOME dream last night...:D2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I was at a Halloween party and Stein was there. In a highly revealing leather costume with body makeup that looked like an internal anatomy chart. Though I don't think he quite realized how hot it made him look. I think he was in it for the costume's effect mainly.
As if that wasn't enough, the dream gave me enough courage to actually hit on him (I was a bit older than I normally am so no pedo here, even though I'm 1 year away from it not being pedo anyway...). I believe I got a bit overbearing for him, and he called it a night and left. I felt bad for scaring him off so I went looking for him. I thought he had gone to another party down the street to get away from me, so I looked there but all I found was a group of guys in matching costumes fucking shit up and ruining that party. So I left and got out of their way, and apparently I was tipped off that Stein had actually gone upstairs to bed. So some of my friends (whom I had told

As some of you probably have seen, I recently posted a photo of my Naruto Ryujinki cosplay to my gallery. I have finished making the cosplay not so long ago, but I still think I need to fix some things so it doesn't break during a convention.
In my Gallery :
Oh well, here are behind the scenes! Enjoy~ :
This was the very first picture! I was climbing up the mountain, and it was tricky because there were many insects and spiky plants. My poor Ninja shoes went through a lot.
This is a picture where I can see the view on Genova Italy (where I live). I thought it was a really cool view, and I added a "Fish eye" effect to the photo to make it seem even more like as if I were look

What is a Brony?While for a while the term Brony was used to mean boy, teenager or adult male who likes my little pony: friendship is magic, in this group we use the word to mean anybody who likes the show. A gender neutral word. Similarly to how "Cool story bro" isn't always directed at males.What is a Brony?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Bronies, to me, are anybody who likes the show, no matter how much they like it.
False terms. Sane vs Rabid.
People obsess over all sorts of things don't they? I remember when I was younger being completely obsessed with Pokémon. I'd want all the games, I'd watch all the shows, I'd want all the trading cards. I still have many of my trading cards now because they still give me happiness when I can play with them with my friends. Did that make me a rabid Pokémon fan? No.
I think we all could use a bit of child like joy like that in our lives some times. Like when you are gaming or when you are maybe watching a funny YouTube video or whatever, it's nice to have that feeling.
Is it bad to be obsessive over a show
Photomanip: Working with TexturesWelcome!Photomanip: Working with Textures2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Textures are a critical part of so many photomanipulations, but they're not as easy to use as they appear. Below are some great examples of photomanipulations that, in my opinion, demonstrate excellent use of textures:
The goal of this article . . .
. . . is to serve as a resource for those of us who enjoy having textures be a predominant part of our photomanipulations and mixed media work so we can learn to use textures properly. Texture misuse or abuse can ruin an entire photomanipulation that otherwise might have been good. No matter how good we are at something, we can always grow to be better.

MMD and Cyber-BullyingMMD and Cyber-Bullying2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
So one morning I was going through my DA messages and there was one from deviant RaikuHoshigami with a rather interesting proposition. Basically, he suggested that I write an article on "Cyber-Bullying" as it pertains to MMD.
He raised some really interesting points with respect to this subject and in a nutshell these were all points that affect many of us here on DA who are MMDers, either directly or indirectly. Especially since outside of Japan, many MMDers are exactly in the demographic groups most likely to be affected by "Cyber-Bullying"; namely those who are in their pre-teen and teens. There are also instances to my direct knowledge where some who are in their early 20s have been negatively impacted in their experiences with MMD by others on DA. So, this is a subject worth visiting in a little more depth.
So what we will do here are the following:

The Problem With Character SheetsAlright, there are some pretty awesome character sheets out there. I don't personally use them, but I've seen others make them work. I'm not here to dispute the fact that they've got some utility, but I am here to point out one big problem with relying on a list of traits—which is generally how character sheets present these things—to define your character.The Problem With Character Sheets2 years ago in Literature Features More Like This
(Note: This also applies to Mary Sue tests. 'Not a Mary Sue' just means your character isn't a perfect storm of coincidence. It has nothing to do with likeability or even believability. <insert dictator here> isn't a Mary Sue, either.)
I think this approach is, if it's the only approach you take to figuring out a character, a really bad idea.
Take a moment to think about your best friend. What's their favorite food? What are they good at, and what are things they do that make you Google good places to dump a body?
Girl in India = Disgrace = Molest = Rape/murder?My intention was to post about the 100pt giveaway results in this blog today. However, I have changed my mind to post this blog instead after seeing a documentary video from BBC just now.Girl in India = Disgrace = Molest = Rape/murder?2 years ago in Literature Features More Like This
I have so much to say. I can write endlessly here but this video says most of it.
It is very shocking to see how females are being deprived in India. I am truly ashamed. But the most shocking thing that I have come across to know very recently from a friend of mine is that in a porn site, the 16th Dec Delhi rape case girl's pic was being used as an Ad with a message saying..
"Want to know how college girls are making XXXXX amount of money every month?"
The image that was used for the Ad was this one (the right one):
Yes, it is true! I have seen it myself. I am not naming the site here because I am not here to promote porn but to tell you that this is true.
This was so very shocking to see how humanity has crossed every lines they could possibly make. HOW CAN YOU USE IMAGES OF THOSE VICTI
Copyright AbuseOk, the cold hard truth here, If you put something on the internet out to the public, expect it to the inspire others. It just shows they enjoy your work and want to learn from it, that's what being a Idol is about.Copyright Abuse2 years ago in Personal More Like This
"In a recent decision of the Full Federal Court, the Court reaffirmed the fundamental legal principle that copyright does not protect ideas and concepts but only the particular form in which they are expressed. The effect of this principle is that you cannot copyright a style or technique. Copyright only protects you from someone else reproducing one of your actual artworks – not from someone else coming up with their own work in the same style."
You can become known for doing something a certain way but you can't own it, you can only own the work as a whole. The same go's for characters, if its just similar not the same copyrights don't apply, even more so if its a generic design to began with.
So people stop bother the DA staff with this nonsen

the thing about public domain is...Just because art is in the public domain does not mean the artist loses their rights over it.the thing about public domain is...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
just a friendly reminder that just because art is in the public domain does not mean it loses copyright value
and no artists you do not need to pay to copyright your work it is an automatic thing.
you only relinquish copyright if you state so yourself that people can use your work without permission
so unless you do that
they are stealing.
-just something you learned in college that I thought had relevance here-
