Which brings us to each year’s communal celebration of the passing of our lifetimes:
New Year’s Eve
So what did you “actually get done” in the past year? How closer are you to a grand goal in life? An assessment is made and then the inevitable Step 2 of the yearly process is engaged, which is often a word for word repeat of last year’s Step 2:
The New Year’s Resolution
There seem to be two main strategies that emerge at this point of facing the New Year, a “brand new morning.” The lone wolf quietly acknowledges goals not yet reached, and is even more secretive in the “new plan.” “I’ll show them,” becomes the new privat

I believe in deviantART. Which is to more accurately say I believe in the concept and the reality of the deviantART community.
When in contemplation of the eternal wellspring that is the deviantART project and how it has become the engine keeping my heart and mind on a full burn as I strive to be an upstanding member of the community as well as a helpful architect and eager participant in the conversation -- my thoughts inevitably settle upon my attempts to define my concept of Gratitude.

Guy Fawkes Day
Burns one man's vendetta on fires of drunk delight while Heaven's rainbows burn and sparkle in the sky.
The fascinated coo while boredom freezes cold and watches while his breath fades steaming into night.
The pennies for the guy jingle in their tin while he a traitor burns, his Cath'lic soul in Hell.
The animals run scared, not from fireworks, but from th'unholy sound of Guido's punishment.
He screams a silent scream that no-one else can hear, save God and pets and Satan's wailing hordes.
“A desperate disease requires a dangerous remedy.”

EDIT: I HAVE ONE SPOT OPEN COME ON o v o IT'S SPEED-DATIN BROS. FUN FUN FUNNN(;;;
Here is a story for you:
Once upon a time Lihua and Bo were talking. Bo left. Lihua set up SEVEN dates for Bo. Each date has a different time and setting.
Bo is blissfully unaware.
(btw if you aren't watching 2P-Middle-Empire YOU BETTER BE NOW-- )
HOW THIS WILL WORK:
1) Sign up for a date and setting! Remember, only SEVEN spots open!
2) A chatroom will be opened later on, keep updated! The chatroom will be where you will RP with Bo on your date. There will be a time limit, check this journal for updates. Spectators are ALLOWED(and can possibly intervene //shot) so have FUN.
3) You have an option of drawing out what happened for the humor of it; this is mostly for the admin of Bo and my amusement(because who doesn't love torturing muses i mean--).

You know like the Tony awards but with SEGA instead and it involves ALL OF THE SEGA CHARACTERS.
The awards are such as most coolest SEGA character, fastest character, fastest flyer character, cleverest character, baddest villain, most cutest couple, best rivalry, worst character ever made, best team, and so on.
But the characters that are quite popular but not made by SEGA (a.k.a Sally Acorn and Scourge the Hedgehog) are upset because there weren't invited or nominated so they try to find a way in to crash the party. And if that's isn't bad some (I won't say who) characters try and fix the thing so only they win.

Question for WatchersI'll probably not respond to people as I just want to see what people think, but I'll still read everything here.Question for Watchers in Personal More Like This
Should people outside of a minority have an opinion on what could potentially translate to a hatred of said minority? For instance, should a straight person be allowed to have an opinion on what could be offensive/what could translate to homophobia? Should they have an opinion on whether it's offensive/whether it's homophobic or not?
On one hand it makes sense because they don't have whatever the potentially offensive thing directed towards them, but then again, people in the minority often call trivial things as 'whateverphobic'; such as the whole 'disliking yaoi/yuri makes you homophobic thing'. There are honestly people who believe it's true, and most of the people I've seen deny it are straight (though believe me, I completely agree with them that it doesn't make you homophobic). Other minorities often use this to scream 'YOU'RE OPPRESSING ME YOU HOMOPHOBIC

It didn’t do much to dampen the disdain I harbour for the big-name comic companies.
For a start, I’m not sure how that page was selected as the cream of the crop. Bravo to the artist for being selected, sure, but there were far more dynamic, lively examples I saw posted here on DA, and I'm genuinely surprised that none of them were chosen. The page selected feels just as stiff, stagnant, sterile and devoid of life as much of the other stuff DC discharges onto the shelves (which might have been why they ran with it).
The main gripe I have, though, is that they changed the final panel.
For those that (somehow) missed the whoo-haa that the whole talent search kicked off: the script DC provided to their would-be artists called for illustrations depicting the titular Harley trying to off herself in a series of absurd ways: holding

Let's just go over what I posted yesterday: I voiced that I have no opinion on guns in America, because I don't live there and as such; don't care. I said that I, personally, am afraid of guns and think they're industrial killing machines. And I posed a vague, hypothetical question that could have been applied to any situation where an old law/doctrine is in effect.
That's it. Nothing more. Harshest word in there was "change" followed by a question mark. Not "ban", not "make guns illegal" and certainly not "outlaw free speech and trial by jury", which some people with a slightly looser grasp on reality seem to think go hand in hand with owning the firearms I said I don't care about.

I've finally finished moving all of my strange antiques into the new house I'm sharing with Mr. Cain. We've painted, and installed all of our modern conveniences into this lovely circa 1900 house.
I've been waging war on the dust and cobwebs since moving, and the spiders... you would not believe. I found their mother lurking in the most frightening of all places... the hard-to-reach crevice behind the toilet. It was a horrific fight, she being about the size of my entire hand, but I've managed to purge the house.
The house itself is strange. It's not very big, but it's the biggest house I've ever lived in. It has mysterious tiny doors that don't open, a cupboard under the stairs, fireplaces in every room, and tall ceilings (which is good, because Mr. Cain has the proportions of Slender Man). I'm already imagining the kind of hobgoblins who lurk in the walls and the monsters in the attic because something has to be making those noises at night...

I'm (Not Really) Back.I'm on Prolonged Hiatus.I'm (Not Really) Back. in Personal More Like This
All right, I apologize for my prolonged, unannounced hiatus. I have been doing a lot of stuff for college, and at the same time, I had been doing a lot of soul-searching (coming up with new ideas for Solitude and One Less Lonely Gurl) and Bible studying as well. I realized that my mind has lapsed a bit in some of my discussions with those who have commented on the controversial stamp I made about the issue of the Bible and homosexuality. Furthermore, I had been preaching the fact that the Bible does not actually condemn homosexuality to my friends IRL, and so far, I'm succeeding. But I must tell all of you that I am but a beginner in this study about this pertinent issue in this era of Church history, and I have not much information about the topic yet.
By the way, I have heard what the Pope himself says about this issue via a comment on my profile by one wintersofboredom.

Anyway, here's a meme.
Personal quantitative section
1. First thing's first. What's your name?
Smith. James Smith.
It's hopelessly common. I even share names with an architect who was born in the 1600s!
2. How about your age?
20, turning 21 soon.
Male, with a female alter-ego.
A hospital in the Philippines.
4'10. Yeah, I know. Very short for a dude.
Around 100 pounds...?
8. Zodiac sign?
I think it's a sapphire.
Personal qualitative section.
1. Eye colour?
Uh, dark brown.
2. Hair colour/style. Is it your natural hair?
Black, straight, fringe covering one eye (aka the emo haircut), often topped with a dark blue beanie. Yes, it's n
I'm Sorry...For my unannounced hiatus once more.I'm Sorry... in Personal More Like This
Real life has been a major pain in the ass for me. College has been bombarding me with loads of things to do. I cannot just drop it for the sake of dA, unfortunately. Instead, I will have to drop dA and the rest of the 'net, including FFN, Twitter, and Blogspot for the sake of my education. This means that I will not be as active as I used to be ever again, and it might take me a year to reply to older feedback messages. That also means that my Bible study, One Less Lonely Gurl, and Solitude will also be on hold for a long time.No exaggerating there. Also, the zombies ate my Internet for Halloween. Sadly, my three months premium has been spent on lengthy, unexpected hiatuses.
However, this is not goodbye, and none of my stories will become dead fics forever. I will not be permanently leaving the 'net, but I will permanently be less active on here, on FFN, and all my other online accounts, including my online ga
I Just Found Out...That the girl I used to like is attending the same college as I am!I Just Found Out... in Personal More Like This
Yes, that one who turned me down for being too short, the inspiration behind the character of C'ren (OLLG's villain sue protagonist) and she who trampled on my self-esteem with her trademark cheetah-printed high heels. And she's a year ahead of me. (I have a confession to make: I started off college as a mechanical engineering major, then after a year, I decided that I would prefer to be an architect instead. My parents supported my decision, though, fortunately. So, I am actually a year older than majority of my classmates.)
I just found out when I saw her (actually rather impressive) work in the scale model exhibit. I never really knew much about her artistic side until then. I didn't know how to react at first as soon as I saw her name written as the project's designer, but then, I had this idea... An idea that might change my life for the better or for the worse. (takes deep breath...)
