TsundereSasuke had always been mean to her. He put her down, called her names, and in kinder garden he cut off one of her ponytails. But he always made up for it.Tsundere in Short Stories More Like This
The first time he saw her, he didn’t know what to think. She had dark black-blue hair and wide silver doe eyes. Her face was round and her hair was short. She was small, really, and awkward. Her finger tips touched constantly and she blushed whenever someone approached her. She was weird.
But to him she was perfect.
He didn’t know what really triggered it. He knew that he liked her. But something was making him be mean to her. Bully her. Like deep down something was yelling at him to beat her up then clean the wounds. It’s sick really, but he couldn’t help it. He can’t help it.
Now it was four years later and they were in fourth grade. Some new kid showed up today and already Sasuke wanted to bash his face in. Who gave blonde-
Resting Up and Suggestions?Stressed OutResting Up and Suggestions? in Personal More Like This
Sorry I haven't been around much lately. I think I need time away from the internet. Both to relax and to brush up on my artwork. I am genuinely sick of all the hate surrounding my namesake online, and when I say "genuinely," I mean it. The stress that the recent resurgence of trolling I've gotten has caused me to be quite ill. I know I shouldn't let what anonymous people on the internet say about me get to me, but it does. I need time to recuperate, to spruce and fix up SYAC, and to get back to a point where I genuinely enjoy drawing again. Right now there's no love or passion in my artwork, and it's mostly because of my defeated attitude: "Why bother, they'll just tear it apart anyway."
That whole "project positive" has been a complete bust too. I failed to live up to the idea, and in the process got really sick. I guess trying to force out a constant positive attitude like that was a mistake.
Still working, plus a surprise!
In the meantime, I have still be
Leaving DAHey everyone...Leaving DA in Personal More Like This
As you likely know, I’ve been struggling with this site for quite some time now. The constant trolling and harassment for years on end have pushed me to the breaking point. I’ve tried disabling comments to ease up on the hatred of me, but sadly DA is still too broken in too many ways that make it easy for nasty people to continually abuse me here. I’ve tried ignoring it. I’ve tried leaving temporarily and coming back after a hiatus... nothing works. My block list is so full I can’t add anyone else now, so the harassment continues unhindered despite all my best efforts. I continually receive death threats over incredibly petty and stupid things, and trolls seem to relish in lurking in my DA frontpage comment sections (which DA will not let me remove).
The straw that broke the camels back though was a thread on my recent Patreon Plug journal: http://tompreston.deviantart.com/journal/Patreon-Plug-Please-Supp
Internet BullyingFor many kids growing up in the 80's, if you were bullied in school you were able to "tough it out" because you knew your social interaction with said bully was isolated only to when you were in close proximity of them. When the bell range and you went home, you could dismiss the bully's taunting and physical abuse and be reminded of friends and family who supported you and kept your spirits up.Internet Bullying in Personal More Like This
But in today's day and age of seemingly constant online connectivity, the "victims" of bullying have a harder time escaping. Once the bell rings, they're still potentially subject to be bullied via verbal assaults online, which often goes completely unnoticed by parents and friends. The worse part of this is that we're often told that because it happens "on the internet" there's no real consequences of trolling or bullying, which is far from true.
I've never accepted the excuse that just because "it happens on the internet" means it can't personally harm you in real life. Part of that is from m
