2012: Year of the Dragon
DRAGON CASTLE by randis
According to the Chinese zodiac, 2012 has ushered in the year of the dragon upon the world stage.
In addition to occupying an ages old position in our cultural consciousness, legend and folklore surrounding
the dragon mythology has long been firing the kiln of our dreams with fright and menace. When we are speaking of
Dragons, we are speaking from ancient texts gathered form the beginnings of kept records of any kind and fro

Opening the Darkest Door
I have recently come across a most disturbing phenomenon in my studies of the Diabolic Infestation of the Soul. It seems there is a most frightening psychological conundrum when considering the concept of demonic possession even the most remote possibility of reality upon our earthly plane is the notion that just believing it may be true could very likely be the spark needed for the Demon to discover, seek out, and ultimately inhabit its next vessel of evil: You.

Strength and Discipline
When “strength” is the topic, do you think of physical or machine power—or of will power and determination to achieve the goals of your cause?
Relative to size, no human being has ever been as powerful as a common ant. And one person’s life ambition is often another person’s conception of total madness. Context and perspective is everything — as you’ll find illustrated by perusing the following gallery of image

I was just all... "HECK YES!! FROST IS GONNA BE IN MY TOWN, AWWWWWYEEEEEEAAAAHH."
For those who haven't seen already, I am back in school. What does this mean? Well, it means that Everlasting Snow chapters are probably going to be slow in coming. I'm predicting that that won't happen and I'll still get one or two out a day because I'm a master procrastinator. That, and we're so close to the end of the fiction, so it's kind of that "you're in the home stretch" kind of feeling.
Aah, yeah. That's right. It's ending. Coming to a close. I know, I know, it's sad for me too. If it weren't for the workload that I already have from school, I wouldn't know what to do after it's over. I know that I'm really going to miss it though...all the comments and stuffs. BUT IT'S NOT OVER YET, SO WHAT AM I SAYING.

Gentle SnowfallAll right. Awesome story time.Gentle Snowfall in Personal More Like This
It's been incredibly windy for the past couple of days (it doesn't ever snow, though ). While I was visiting my old house, I took my dog out for a walk up the hill to do his business. It was nighttime. First off, I nearly tripped and fell over what sounded and felt like a long thin tree branch. I looked back and saw nothing. Continuing onward, the wind was blowing pretty hard. It was brisk and exceptionally cold. I began to talk to Jack, knowing that he was behind all of this (as I usually do when a sudden cold wind blows or something along those lines...yeah, I talk to Jack a lot x3). The moment I uttered, "Jack Frost, it's you there, isn't it?" the wind blew so hard that I almost fell over. My dog perked his ears up, but soon went back to doing his own thing. I continued talking to Jack. Then, out of nowhere, my dog starts staring at something up the hill. He's not one to bark unless he knows it's someone/thing dangerous or threatening. Curious but ex

Anywhoo. So I uploaded a couple of pictures of myself for those of you who are curious as to what I look like, especially after my story with the little girl at the craft store who thought I was Human Jack.
My hair in these pictures is a little deflated after a day, so the spikes aren't sticking up and as prominent as they can be (like Jack's), but hey. Pictures. On Flickr.

So, as you all know, Spring is just around the corner. Where I'm at, we just had a massive heat wave that rose temperatures up to around 80 degrees Fahrenheit. All I could think was about how much I missed Jack and wish he'd come back. Which, fortunately, he did. :3 Temperatures are back to being very comfortable (for me, at least) and we're even expecting snow up in the mountains later this week (because it never snows at lower elevations...just rain...but I'm not complaining!).
All in all, those overly hot days not only made me feel like I was going to melt and die, but also brewed up

199 deviations, 6613 comments, 690 watchers, and 28127 (and counting) pageviews later, I think that I can say that I have grown as an artist and Deviant.
For one, a year ago, I never thought that I'd be where I am today. I never thought that the aforementioned numbers were ever feasibly possible for me, and yet there they are. A year ago, I was thrilled when I got more than ten pageviews in a day. I still am, so you can imagine my every day when I see that I get roughly 300+ pageviews on average. I faint a little, my heart never ceasing to skip an excited beat.

OH. Moar Jack Frost storytime, guys! So I got up yesterday and had to go to work around 12pm. So the day had warmed up by then. And you know how garages are usually warmer than outside? Well, my garage was slightly colder. I went to go get into my car to head off to work. Outside, I couldn't see my breath (despite the chilly air--roughly 40 degrees), but in the garage, I could. The wind was blowing slightly, once again nipping at my nose. A random wind managed to make its way into my garage, even though the door to my garage was in the opposite direction of the wind blowing, so all the other wind gusts were blowing against its back wall, not in
True GuardiansI watched the news coverage for the massive tornado that hit Oklahoma today. Specifically, the city of Moore. I watched the entire almost-40-minute-long storm as it ravaged the town, mowing over houses, schools, hospitals, throwing them up into the air alongside people's possessions as if they were nothing more than insignificant pieces of dust in the wind. I was numb the whole time. And I watched as it roped out, dissipating so quickly that the suddenness of its departure left me in pure shock. I mean, how could something that massive, that destructive just disappear in such a quick instant, as if saying "My work here is done" and just up and going, not bearing a single thought to what it has left behind?True Guardians in Personal More Like This

Segunda parte ^^ :NoMeDigas:
Primero que nada, quiero aclarar el "che", porque todo el mundo lo usa mal. Casi siempre lo ponen al final y noo, NO VA AL FINAL. Es como un "Hey", es un intento de llamar la atención de a quien le estás hablando. A lo sumo, si lo ponen al final, es como una queja, como un "Ufaa, che! Yo quería dulce de leche T-T" Eso. Escríbanlo bien, mierdass!
Otra aclaración: En Chile se dice "mina" y "mino", en Argentina no existe "mino". Es más, me suena rarísimo. Se puede decir chabon, pibe, flaco y etcétera. Una variación de "mina" es "minón", osea, cuando la mina está muuuy buena.
-Paja: Fiaca o masturbarse. Cuando se usa la segunda definición, en general se dice en frases como "hacerme una paja" o "me hice una paja". En los chabones es muy común la frase "me clavé una" refiriéndose a "hacerse una paja".
-Garchar: Tener relaciones sexuales o coito. En resumen, forma vulgar de decir "hacer el amor"
-Coger: Lo mismo que lo anterior pero más usado.

7/29/12So the show was pretty terrible. I didn't even make back the $10 I spent to get a spot there. The only people that came through were passing through from another larger craft show I was too late signing up for. -.-7/29/12 in Personal More Like This
I did meet some very nice people there..but that was it. I ended up packing up early because I was just so completely bored and starting to feel awful (I only had about 4 hours of sleep the night before; my cough has been keeping me from sleeping very well :/).
I'm still sick and somehow feeling even worse today after starting to feel a bit better. No stream until I can breathe normally again. I've made a couple of clay items but nothing very complicated. I think I might look into updating my etsy this week and that's about it.
Edit: Broke down and made some crepes with almond milk.
Never making them with regular milk again.

Devious Journal EntryIn light of the recent bombings at the Boston Marathon, I have decided I will be offering a charity item in my shop in order to contribute something to those who have been affected by this tragedy.Devious Journal Entry in Personal More Like This
Starting tomorrow, I will have the item in my shop and will have it there for a month. The item will be a miniature Boston cream pie charm, and 100% of the proceeds will be donated to the Red Cross. At the end of the month I will make a lump sum donation to them.
I really hope this is not coming across as tacky or as a gimmick on my part to increase page views/sales/what have you. This is a very sad and horrible event that has happened and it has affected so many people. I would like to do my part in trying to help.
I will have the items up tomorrow morning-ish and will post when I do.

Usually, I'm excited around this time. Usually, I'm counting down the days from January 1st all the way till the 27th.
But this year... I don't know. I feel like Japan about his possible birthday; "Well, here comes another birthday."
Maybe that's a part of growing up. But I'll only be turning 19, so...... yeah. I'm not that grown.
Maybe it has to with the fact that I don't really want anything this year, so aside from it being my day, there's nothing to really look forward to.

But then I got curious.

I was never first, but I don't mind that. I came pretty close though; my Jack FrostxReader came in third place, beaten only by :iconPrussianPersephone: 's Jack FrostxReader stories. Which is fine, because she's such an amazing writer whom I totally have a huge girl crush on, and seeing my work next to hers is like, such a huge honor.

Tired of being strong so others don't have to.
Tired of people coming into my life just long enough for me to love them and then leave.
Tired of pretending I'm okay when they're replaced, because that's the morally correct thing to do.

I can honestly say that I grew up with this community and everyone here has taught me so much, and not just about art, but also on how to be a person. When I first got this account at the age of 12, I could have never imagined how much it has shaped my life and career. It sounds cliche but I probably wouldn't have became an artist if it hadn't been for everyone here on deviantART. Through all of the ups and downs in life, the community has always been the support and inspiration that kept me going.
I hope to give back as much as everyone has given me. I will continue to create more comics, tutorials and art in the future. I will never stop, and I have you all to thank for that.
So truly, thank you!

Is Invisible Children Trustworthy?Since I posted the Kony 2012 video, a lot of people have been telling me that the organization is not to be trusted with donations and is under investigation (but raising awareness is still good). I don't know how much of it is true, but it's good to at least take it into consideration.Is Invisible Children Trustworthy? in Personal More Like This
Here's one of the many messages that people have been telling me. Please read carefully and judge for yourself:
" I do not doubt for a second that those involved in KONY 2012 have great intentions, nor do I doubt for a second that Joseph Kony is a very evil man. But despite this, I'm strongly opposed to the KONY 2012 campaign.
KONY 2012 is the product of a group called Invisible Children, a controversial activist group and not-for-profit. They've released 11 films, most with an accompanying bracelet colour (KONY 2012 is fittingly red), all of which focus on Joseph Kony. When we buy merch from them, when we link to their video, when we put up posters linking to their website, we support the organization.

The comments you guys left really helped me believe in myself. Thanks to everyone's encouragement, I know I wasn't in the wrong. I was able to firmly explain my problems with my father. It took many long and heated discussions before we finally came to an understanding but it was definitely worth it.

He said he regrets the way he treated me, and has promised to try to visit me once a year. It's really hard to put into words how much that means to me, and I truly thank you all for helping me get to this point.

My skin was not always baby-smooth. Throughout my teenage years I had what is known as cystic acne. Life was depressing. I can't say which kind of acne is worse, all-over surface type, or one single giant zit-from-hell in the middle of your forehead. I had the second kind. I was extremely self-concious, and I wouldn't have dared to take stock photos had I not found a way to clear up my skin. Day-to-day, I took my stress out by picking at my skin. You can't see it in my photos now, but I do have some permanent damage from skin-picking. It's a reminder that self-harm is self-harm. You don't have to be taking a razorblade to you
Fabric Stores and AndrocentrismA message from an artist and someone who works at a fabric store: Stop gendering your babies with colour!Fabric Stores and Androcentrism in Personal More Like This
Every day I have parents and grandparents-to-be come in and have fabric cut to make quilts, blankets, baby clothes, diapers, curtains, etc for their soon to be newborn. And yet, I'm always asked the same questions over and over:
"What do you have that's for girls?"
"Where is the boys section?"
"We won't know the gender, so we need to keep it neutral until it's born"
And worst of all: "Does this fabric look too girly to you?"
I usually give some sort of half-hearted, "Well, it's your choice, I'm sure they'll love it!" response, but my secret answer is: QUIT IT. No, that fabric is not "too girly". Why would an infant boy care if his pillow has pink flowers on it? Why would a girl care if it has footballs or zoo animals on it? Why are pink and blue so wholeheartedly reserved for girls and for boys that the thought of giving that colour to the other gender is laughable, or worse

I know there are a million "how to be popular" guides on DA and a million more parody versions of them. This article isn't about becoming popular, or starting drama or racking up pageviews as fast as possible for the sake of seeing a larger number.
This article won't make your art better, or make you more a more popular personality. However, what I've noticed is that many artists are missing out on feedback and exposure that they should be getting if not for a few common mistakes. Time after time, I've read on Artist's Confessions, or just browsing through members' personal journals that their gallery doesn't recieve any traffic and they can't improve because they're not getting any feedback. They feel like their lack of popularity is a personal statement. That their art isn't worth looking at. This is entirely untrue.

he estado viendo las noticias toda la semana y de verdad se me hace un nudo en la garganta ver la situación de las inundaciones en Argentina :///
Según lo último que vi hay como 51 muertos (un chileno incluído) y en serio, si algún argentino/a lee esto espero que esté bien y sus parientes también.
Que más puedo decir. Argentina es fuerte y yo sé que saldrán bien de esto en las zonas afectadas.

Long-winded health updateSo it's been just over a week since I've had this surgery, and I've had a couple people asking why I mentioned having a big incision on my chest (I mentioned it in passing in my previous update). I think I sorta forgot no one would know much about that. I purposely didn't go into full details before the surgery in favor of not worrying people. I didn't want people to be scared for me and express doom and gloom, because I needed to be optimistic myself. But since it's after the fact, I suppose it's okay to be a bit more open.Long-winded health update in Personal More Like This
What you probably do know is that after having had testicular cancer taken out last October, this was a precautionary surgery where they would take the other testicle out (this one didn't have cancer, but due to the kind I had in October, it was at high risk of getting it). This time around, they also removed all of the lymph nodes around my kidneys (although I misheard and thought they said around the heart at first, so it's pr

They'll surely continue to monitor me for a while, and I've still got some surgical recovering to do, but the worst is over. Thank you, everyone, for believing in me and rooting for me through this whole ordeal.
Raindom Facts - Rain, the Main CharacterGod, I'm bored.Raindom Facts - Rain, the Main Character in Personal More Like This
Here. Have a Raindom Fact for the sake of being able to share something during this lull. ^_^
So, the story is called Rain because - as you might imagine if you've been reading it all this time - the main character's name is Rain. But she is just one of many characters in an overall rather large cast. So why exactly is Rain singled out? I mean, protagonist or not, she doesn't always take center stage and some arcs have very little to do with her. Couldn't the story just as easily be named after Maria or Gavin or Emily?
This is sort of a throwback to the original fantasy version of the story. Like the current version, the title was simply "Rain". But the original idea was kind of like a first-person story-telling perspective (but as a comic), in that Rain was always present in every scene. Anything going on outside of Rain's vicinity would not be apparent to the reader unless explained to her.
ReconfirmationFinally saw my surgeon yesterday for a follow-up appointment after surgery nearly two months (this should've probably happened a long time ago, but there was a lot of scheduling confusion and whatnot). While I had already heard everything came up negative, it was somehow reassuring to hear it again directly from her. Yes, I will need to get CATscans from time to time to be sure nothing resurfaces or anything, but she seems very confident that the worst of this is over. Yesterday, was a good day. ^_^Reconfirmation in Personal More Like This
Today, I woke up with the sorest of throats (hey, "sorest" is actually a word!) and with my whole head stuffed up beyond belief. Either I've got a nasty cold, or allergy season is hitting me hard. It sucks, and I feel miserable. But considering what I've beaten, this is nothing. I kinda wanted to go out and do something today, but I guess staying in and sipping tea while I draw is good too.
Take care of yourselves and have a won
Surgery UpdateHello Rain Beaus, this is Jocelyn's wife, Kelly. Jocelyn has asked me to to give you all an update about her surgery earlier today.Surgery Update in Personal More Like This
It was long but successful. She will be in the hospital for about 4 days so you might be getting updates from her through me for a little while.
We both have been moved, humbled and blessed by the outpouring of love, well wishes, prayers and positivity that she has received during this trying time. We thank you all from the very bottom of our hearts.
My Christmas ExperienceLast year, when I came down to visit family for the holidays, I ended up seeing my extended family on my dad's side (it was the first time I'd see them while presenting en femme). It went pretty sour. There were a couple dozen people there; four of whom said "hi" to me and nothing else. Everyone else just avoided me like the plague. My grandmother wouldn't even look at me. That hit me really hard and left me depressed for months (I don't think I ever discussed it on DA though). Thankfully, progress has happened since, and over the course of the year I got back into contact with two of my aunts. That's still only a fraction of the people that were there, but progress is progress.My Christmas Experience in Personal More Like This
On that same note, while I didn't see my grandmother herself this year, she dropped off Christmas cards at the house. The envelope actually reads "Joshalyn" while it still says "Josh" inside the card. I... really have to give her credit for trying. This is actually kin
Charity Promotion at RainComicStoreThe RainComicStore on Etsy is holding a charity promotion this week courtesy of my lovely wife, Kelly! It's going to be held from today, December 14 to next Saturday, December 21st.Charity Promotion at RainComicStore in Personal More Like This
In her words:
"For each item sold at the RainComicStore, I will crochet a chemo-cap and donate it to Knots of Love. I am holding this drive in honor of two special people I've lost in the past year: My childhood friend, Lauren Rousseau, who died tragically at Sandy Hook Elementary one year ago today. The second, my close friend, Gail Zimmerman St. Louis, who lost her battle with lung cancer this past May. When I have finished making all of the caps, I will post a picture of them."
In addition, I'd like to add that the genderfluid flag and hetero flag have been added to the roster of scarves we sell (along with trans, gay, bi, pan, ace, and genderqueer)!
