*What REALLY Defines a MarySue/GaryStu Character?Frankly, I ignore most people's craptastic Mary Sue/Gary Stu OC's because they are so badly written/designed it makes me utterly sick as a long time RPer in live action and tabletop RPG's. This crap people are doing on DA and calling it Role Playing, that's childish BS compared to what I've grown up doing. And sorry to burst people's delusional bubble here, but yes, your whatever-its-name-is characters are Mary Sue/Gary Stu characters. Want to know why? The traits that define all Mary Sue/Gary Stu characters include the following:*What REALLY Defines a MarySue/GaryStu Character? in Personal More Like This

Hasbro's Final Word on Transformers and GenderOkay, I have been stating for several years now that Hasbro has maintained since the creation of the Transformers in 1984 and reiterated repeatedly since then (most notably at a Botcon 2010 panel) that the Transformers are in fact GENDERLESS. Well, this Transformer Tiggy preordered the Covenant of Primus as soon as it was available to do so and it arrived at around noon-thirty on December 13th, 2013 (and as of this posting I am half way through reading it). This book is “written” from the perspective of the third of the thirteen Primes and inherently their historian, Alpha Trion, to the human friends of the Autobots. In the Forward (the third paragraph specifically), he states the following [with my personal notations and clarifications]:Hasbro's Final Word on Transformers and Gender in Personal More Like This

The truth about Christianity and the BibleCan it be spelled out any more clearly to you lot? Add to that the fact that the Ten Commandments were stolen directly from the Egyptian Book of the Dead (I have not stolen, I have not killed, I have not lied, etc). It's all just a bad plagiarism of other people's religion which has then been used to control the populace through fear! >.< And people wonder why I walked away from Christianity.The truth about Christianity and the Bible in Personal More Like This
*RP Rules and EtiquetteWell now, it seems that a lot of people on DA, and across the internet for that matter, have a huge misconception about what Role Playing actually is, let alone the fact that they have no idea how to do it properly. Most of those who are clueless are children (under 18) who not only have no idea what they are doing, but also clearly had no proper instruction, or very bad instruction, on how to Role Play correctly, let alone proper Role Play etiquette. The rest of the clueless ones that are actually adults are one of four things: generally ignorant and need proper instruction, received bad instruction on how to RP, are arrogant jerks who think they are the center of the RP, or are drama queens seeking attention and will throw a childish tantrum if they don't get their way.*RP Rules and Etiquette in Personal More Like This

Transformers Fan Book ProjectEDITTransformers Fan Book Project in Personal More Like This
Well, things are being pushed back a bit for two reasons:
1. I'm being told I need MORE responses from fans to add to the book, so please spread the word and if you haven't sent me yours yet, please do so.
2. As I am self publishing, I need to purchase the ISBN ($100) to get the ball rolling and get the book available globally through Amazon.com and Barns n Noble.com, as well as in a registry for brick-and-mortar stores to pick up my book and sell it. So it's going to take a little time to pull the funds together.
The book itself is finished, save for more responses from fans. Once I have what I need and the book is in publication, I will post a photo of the book itself with links to where you can purchase it. All moneys earned from the sale of this book will go towards publishing future novels and other books.
The idea has evolved into a project I wish to do for TF fans world wide. Even my 62 year old mother got in on it and I introduced
*What would you Believe?All too often people take their anonymity for granted, posting their real identity on line for all to see. But then so many believe they are protected from the wrongdoings of others, that they think they are safe, even when they do post personal information. Yet what would you believe of what they post about themselves? For example, what would you believe of me? Would you believe I'm a 44 year old man from Florida? Would you believe I'm a 39 year old woman from Idaho? Would you believe I'm a 35 year old man from Wisconsin? Would you believe I'm a 27 year old woman from New Jersey? Would you believe I'm a 22 year old man from California? Would you believe I'm a 15 year old girl from Oklahoma? Would you believe any of those at all or would you assume that none of them were the truth because I specifically listed them? Then there are names. Is my name Kathy Armstrong? What about David Buchanan? Or perhaps is it Andrea Smythe? Or maybe even Robert Cole? Or is my name something else entirel*What would you Believe? in Personal More Like This
*Rule 34 and SlashYou know, I've been involved with quite a number of fandoms for quite a long time. One thing I see time and again is what is universally referred to as "Rule #34", which is the rule that states "If it exists there IS porn of it." Well, sure fine whatever. I'm not into porn, but whatever floats your boat I guess. There are more than a few "Rule #34" applications that I personally find disturbing, to say the least.*Rule 34 and Slash in Personal More Like This
However, this also brings me to the whole "Slash" thing, whether it's fics, art, whatever. There seems to be a number of people who actually do not understand what the actual definition of "Slash" really is. Well, I'll make it very straight forward and to the point:
Slash = any fan story/art containing a pairing between same-sex (usually male/male) canon characters.
FemSlash = any fan Slash story/art containing a pairing between female/female only canon characters.
OCSlash = any fan story/art containing a pairing between same-sex characters where one
*Fan Fiction: To Write or Not To Write?That is indeed the question that vexes many a fan in these modern times. There are so many views regarding fan fiction - some give free reign, some are fine as long as it is non-pornographic and/or non commercial, and some are vehemently against it. While most licensed authors and copyright holders offer their opinions in as little as a sentence to as much as a paragraph, there is one who has publicly posted their views against fan fics in a long and detailed rant and why they feel this way.*Fan Fiction: To Write or Not To Write? in Personal More Like This
What I am actually curious about is what you all feel, with regards to the authors who actively discourage or outright forbid fan derivative works as compared to those who are open to it or even encourage it, as well as why you feel as you do towards such works or the opinions thereof.

It's hard enough for us adult Transfans who get ridiculed and bullied for liking what society considers "a child's cartoon" or "a 30 minute toy commercial" without us turning on each other like rabid animals with zero intellectual quotient altogether. I write and draw a number of subjects, including Transformers. I have friends who adore or are even in love with the characters. We as a fandom promote open affection and love between these characters, even openly accepting "homosexuality" despite the fact that Transformers are inherently genderless and that masculine and feminine personalities are strictly that, a personality archetype and not a physical or biological component.

A Message to the ChosenGreetings. My name is Optimus Prime. I am one of the last surviving Autobots of the great purge which most refer to as the Second Cybertronian Civil War or the Great Decepticon War. What started out as a revolution against the Magnus Council would become the greatest struggle in the history of the Universe. We few Autobots who are managing to survive have established some control over several planets which serve as our military bases. Forlornly, our enemy controls a vast portion of the galaxies in which they have established as an empire: the Decepticon Absolutism Empire. From this untainted, propaganda-absent page, we tell tale from both sides of the struggle to paint a clear picture in your mind of what kind of war we are fighting for, the objectives of both causes, the history of our great struggle, and the current status of the war.A Message to the Chosen in Personal More Like This

A very long drive towards hope. . .There are often times I sit back and reflect upon many things in my life as I go about my daily duties. I think of those I have met and those whom I call friend, brother, sister, companion, family. I think of their struggles in life, the good days and the bad, and I often wish I could do more to ease their pain and give them comfort as well as congratulations and encouragement. These are the good people who deserve good things, and yet life has done them great harm by the hands of spiteful individuals. They are strong Sparks despite the pain, or perhaps because of it, and they stand firm in their belief that they have the right to live and be who they are. They are the ones I hold dear to me, they are the ones I lift up and give support to when they need me, and in whom I see a reflection of myself; their kindness and generosity, their strength and perseverance, their conviction and determination, and their protectiveness and compassion for others. It is they whom I embrace as friend,A very long drive towards hope. . . in Personal More Like This

The Autobots are not merely soldiers under my command, they are also friends, brothers to me.

Since then, Transformers continues to be popular to older fans and newer fans of all ages.
Many are wondering to why am I writing a review about Transformers? As many may know, I adore it. I love it so much that at times I wish it could be real. But even as a Transformers fan, I can also notice some flaws.
So, my reviews will go off into time orders of seeing Transformers:

2.) Transformers Animated

My reviews will be based on what I thought about it at first to what I think about it today. It will also include some plots, some of the characters, design, and music.

Liam Sharp was and is one of the most sought after comic artists in the business. After bursting on the scene by drawing the bestselling Marvel UK title of all time, Death Head II, he was back in America illustrating top line comics like Superman, Batman and Spiderman as well as special projects for people like Stan Winston. For anyone unfamiliar with his amazing work, his galleries can be found on deviantART. I recently got lost for an entire day perusing a single file of his Conan illustrations.

Fan Art Law
Mon Sep 10, 2012 by techgnotic
t seems there’s nothing quite as dear to the hearts of many of our deviants as their production of fan art, and at the same time, there is nothing so knotted with legal and ethical headaches. Imitation may be the sincerest form of flattery, but in the form of fan art it has also become one of the most frustratingly complicated. At some point, the sheer volume of fan art around a single property may become so large that the issue rises to another level of scrutiny by the creators of the original work.
With this dynamic in mind, we thought the following panel that Josh Wattles, our Advisor In Chief here at deviantART, and a mystery guest named Harold Smith, gave at Comic Con this year might be of immense help in understanding the ever evolving elements of fan art

The chaptered comic strip, has been collected into a 100-page graphic novel – and to the still-uninitiated:
It is not quite like anything you’ve probably ever seen before. The story follows “Zee Captain” and his sidekicks as they amble through a post-apocalyptic landscape. And while that hardly seems new and different, it’s the unusually superlative graphic quality of the comic cells and the Monty Pythonesque dialogues and leaps of logic that can become quite mesmerizing. Zee Captain, his face hidden by a gas mask that gives him a Darth Vaderish look, wears what looks like a Soviet Red Army uniform from WWII, and the strip does have nourish WWII feel. It’s as if the nuclear holocaust on Hiroshima and Nagasaki had never ended and spread to every major city on Earth. But

“The very meaninglessness of life forces man to create his own meaning. Children, of course, begin life with an untarnished sense of wonder, a capacity to experience total joy at something as simple as the greenness of a leaf; but as they grow older, the awareness of death and decay begins to impinge on their consciousness and subtly erode their joie de vivre, their idealism—and their assumption of immortality. As a child matures, he sees death and pain everywhere about him, and begins to lose faith in the ultimate goodness of man. But, if he’s reasonably strong—and lucky—he can emerge from this twilight of the soul into a rebirth of life’s elan. Both because of and in spite of h

dAmn It, the system where deviants can submit and vote on funny quotes from Chat (originally called "dAmn" or deviantART Messaging Network), is a feature that gets extremely low usage and traffic.

You cannot comment on a blocked member's journal, deviations, or profile.You cannot reply to comments of a member who has blocked you.

My fascination has been persistent enough to follow me through life: Does God exist?
As a human being we have a free mind to think and act within certain social rules, we will always question everything.
Why follow rules set by other people, and why agree to them?
Why pay taxes?
Why go to church and pray to a god that may or may not exist?
So one may ask what is Atheism?
So many questions... so little time
Well Atheism is, in a broad sense is a rejection of belief in the existence of gods of any form.
But one can't simply say that this is what Atheism is, it exist so many levels of it.
Why would God simply not exist according to them? Well science disproves God's existence at all levels.
But people of a religious does not like this, they say things such as:
