Dramione Fic FeaturesPretty much everyone has heard of Harry Potter, right? And I'm sure most are familiar with one Draco Malfoy and one Hermione Granger. If so, then you shouldn't be surprised to find out that quite a few people tend to pair them together; thus, we have DRAMIONE. And many (including myself) often turn to fanfiction and rely on writers near and far to make this non-canon paring come to life.Dramione Fic Features5 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Surprisingly, while there are several groups here on dA dedicated to anything and everything Dramione, the couple doesn't get as much love as it should - fanfiction wise. That's why Fanfiction.net is a great place to feed ones Dramione addiction!
As an avid fanfiction reader, I get asked constantly what good fics I've read, especially Dramione - and, more often than not, they ask for my favorites. So, to all the Draco Malfoy and Hermione Granger fans out there, I've gone through all the hundreds of Dramione fics I've read, just for you, and decided to feature my choice of the top 10. Not to
My most hated Star Wars changesWhenever George Lucas re-releases the Star Wars movies, he usually adds or changes scenes from parts of the movies which infuriates most fans. I don't support his changes either, but some of them fix continuity errors which I can understand. Here is my list of most hated changes from the re-releases.My most hated Star Wars changes3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Star Wars: A New Hope-Obi-Wan's Krayt Dragon call
Both the 1977 and 2004 versions of Obi-Wans scream sound similar, but the 2011 Blu-ray re-release sounds WAY too different. He sounds "like a gay man stepping on a lego". I don't really get that quote's logic but I really don't like his new scream.
Star Wars: A New Hope-Greedo shoots first
I HATE this change. In the 1977 theatrical release, Han Solo and Greedo have a conversation and all of a sudden Han shoots Greedo in cold blood. Then, George Lucas changed that in the 1997 theatrical re-release and made Greedo shoot first. His reason for this was to make Han seem more like a hero for younger viewers. Seriously, why change that? Han was su

Star Wars: The Phantom Menace-Yoda
In the original 1999 version of the movie, Yoda appears as a puppet which looks like crap compared to the 2011 Blu-ray version which replaced him with a CGI Yoda and it looks SO much better.
Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith-The shouting clonetroopers
In the scene where Obi-Wan Kenobi fights General Grievous in the planet Utapah, an army of clonetroopers arrive to fight the droids that were spectating the lightsaber duel. In the original version of the film, the clones don't say anything, but in the Blu-ray version, they shout out orders and commands. I'm a big fan of the clones and they barely talk in the prequel trilogy so I welcome more talking clones.
Let me love you.Today I talked with a woman who's daughter I knew since we were kids. This girl was always introverted, really shy. And half the time I figured people didn't even notice she was there. But I noticed. We became this awkward sort of 'friends' our sophomore year of high school all the way up to graduation.Let me love you.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Her mother told me today that she is still backwards and pretty awkward around people but she's getting better. I assured her that I tried to bring her daughter out of her shell, and she smiled and said to me, "Oh I know—she talked about you everyday after school. Kayla did this, Kayla said that. Kayla brought me into this prank…"
( Sidenote: We taped printed out pictures of kittens all over our history teachers classroom.)
I always figured she thought I was annoying and merely put up with me.
But now, all I can think is, "Wow—someone thought I was awesome enough to tell the closest people to them about. MEEEEE."

SOPA is bad for deviantART and YouSOPA is bad for deviantART & YouSOPA is bad for deviantART and You4 years ago in Personal More Like This
By :iconshikhar01:. Thanks to :iconliquisoft: for the info.
If you spend any sort of time on the internet you may have heard about the SOPA bill being debated around Congress. SOPA, for those not in the know, stands for Stop Online Piracy Act, and in a nutshell it exists in the interest of making it easier for the holders of intellectual property (aka copyrighted materials) to get "theft" of their materials removed.
Sounds fair, at first, right? Well the problem lies not necessarily in the intent (protecting one's property) and more in how broad the bill is and how much power it gives law enforcement and the holders of intellectual property.
Again, simplifying things down beyond compare, SOPA would allow a company like Nintendo (who supports the bill) to come upon a site like deviantART and decide that it doesn't care for all of the images of its famed character Mario. So it might say "hey, you guys are harboring theft of our content"
Disney/MARVEL Episode VII: Return of the ********I rarely follow the news. On my homepage though, I can't help but take interest in why George Lucas and Darth Vader are pictured in the news. He's retired right? Well his legacy isn't. So I look at it, and it says that Disney has purchased Lucasfilm –Star Wars franchise included- for 4.05 billion dollars!Disney/MARVEL Episode VII: Return of the ********3 years ago in Personal More Like This
For me, this is too good to be true! The greatest film series of all time has become yet another company owned by Mr. Mouse. Man, what would Walt say? How does it get better? Episode VI. I don't know how they will pull it off, but with enough creativity, I think Disney can pull off another Avengers miracle. So, what's the catch?
Everyone is ************ about it! Here we go again. C'mon people, we've been through this before! Disney bought Marvel. Everyone complained. Then Avengers came out and it became the third highest grossing film of all time. And now they are going to released Iron Man 3 and already the trailer alone has gotten 38,724, 542 views on YouTube! Call me crazy, but
Disney buys Lucasfilm and Star Wars.I got some good and bad news to you guys depending on how you look at it.Disney buys Lucasfilm and Star Wars.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
As the title says, Disney has just brought Lucasfilm and the Star Wars Franchise from George Lucas for $4.05 Billion.
Now, this could be bad depending on the merchandise and cartoons we can get out of it. Seeing what the kids watch on Disney Channel these days. But from another point of view, it could also improve the franchise as Lucas had already given it up. Disney have not destroyed Marvel yet, even though the fans feared it would. Don't fear it will do the same to Star Wars before the first symptoms appear. Once you see goofy use the force... you can panic.
However, if this wasn't enough, Disney have already also planned Star Wars Episode 7. With planned release in 2015. Now where will this lead us? Mara Jade Skywalker perhaps?
"Continuing its strategy of delivering exceptional creative content to audiences around the world, The Walt Disney Company (NYSE: DIS) has agreed

Making Happyit's an odd concept, when you think about it. Someone once told me that I shouldn't look for happiness, but instead contentment.Making Happy2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I think that's the wrong goal, at the end of the day.
Life is all about doing what you love and loving doing it. I recently read an article titled "21 Tips to Keep Your Shit Together When You're Depressed" and it had me thinking a lot about the ways I choose to deal with my own life. Here are some of the things I've learned through trial and error (and error and erroranderrorerrorerror.)
Find what makes you special and never let it go. Even when you're convinced there's nothing that sets you apart, there's something that you love and something that you connect to on a deeply emotional level. Never let that go. That is your identity.
Don't become reliant on one person or thing because life has a habit of being unstable. No matter how much you may care about someone or something, it's unfair to them and yourself to count on

Change to Literature Preview Images
Preview images for literature deviations are now placed within a scrolling literature thumb. In the past, any preview image a deviant set would take the place of the scrolling literature thumb, making it difficult to distinguish visual art thumbnails and literature thumbnails.
This change allows for a more uniform thumbnail appearance around the site while also ensuring that each artist is still able to comfortably represent their work.

....Sonic...was a wonderful getaway for me, and he still is. My mother died when I was 8 and I remember me just laying in my room, watching depressing shows like, Charlie brown and Garfield. I swear, those were the only things I watched, not even Pokemon could cheer me up. I was a little kid, so I didn't really think much of it, but now I'm starting to realize just how lonely I really was. My dad was in the army and he worked so hard to take me to a school that was a hour away, and still balance work.
I can't exactly remember when, or why, but one day I was watching TV and I somehow landed on Sonic X. I still remember the exact spot of the exact episode it was too xD: Cruise Blues, the part where Amy was sitting on So

What's a Cockatoo?
"Cockatoos are recognizable by the showy crests and curved bills. Their plumage is generally less colorful than that of other parrots, being mainly white, grey or black and often with colored features in the crest, cheeks or tail. On average they are larger than other parrots; however, the Cockatiel, the smallest cockatoo species, is a small bird."
Cockatoos are famous for having big personalities. They live for attention and will go to great lengths to make sure you watch! From wild dancing, to lap snuggles, and often a loud, sharp scream.
