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.

Propaganda I by Yuujakumi
The Comfort of Mindless Obedience
When is information true and useful and when is it just “propaganda?” Why in fact is an image or phrase or animated art sequence “propaganda” rather than it simply being a “lie?” What about acceptable lies that define our society as much as they degrade it - - for example commercials that obviously hype a product with untruths or political advertisements full of unachievable platitudes.

I have never found a companion who was so companionable as solitude.
Henry David Thoreau
I always thought Thoreau’s comment was simply a word game— ultimately not of much value and false at its core. A Valentines Day in solitude should mean being all alone and alone means being unhappy, pure and simple. Still, it will turn out in life that the most alone we can feel is ironically in the crush of family and friends and even in the embrace of one’s Valentines Day companion— but lost and unfulfilled in one’s dreams and visions.

There is a lonely figure standing in the street.
No matter how hard I try to make out his or her expression, I cannot. Is there no face there at all? Or perhaps there is a million human faces there, intertwined and flickering in unison, as bright as the light of ten thousand suns?
The being stares into the abyss of the vortex.

The day begun with me getting smacked with a broken laptop and yells "YOU'VE GOT MAIL!".
I tried to protest that laptops weren't attacking people in the mornings back in the past. To this, Captain declared that in fact they didn't have to, because users were so addicted to reading their daily mail facts that every morning they woke up smacking their heads on their laptops.
Then my head was treated to a barrage of empty, metal SPAM cans with words "SPAM MAIL! DODGE THE SPAM! USE FILTERS!".

There's kind of an unspoken etiquette, and I would always go out of my way to be respectful to Deviants who are a bit more conservative as well as Deviants that like more mature art. If I see something I don't like, I just try and stay away from it (I might make a bit of an 'eww' face before I move on).
However, I've been hearing a lot of stories (specifically in the TES fan communities, which prior to this experience for me have been nothing but awesome) about people getting trolled, nasty comments and even a bit of racism thrown into the mix.

There is a special dA offer that expires on 26th December. If you give one premium membership as a gift, dA gifts a premium membership of the same value to you.

So, that means two premium memberships, for you and your friend (:

It is strange that I am this tired when most of the last 8 hours, as of writing this journal, was essentially spent sitting down in various forms of public and non-public transport. We travelled via train, car, cable car, boat and on foot all within that time period. Ok, I'll give us some credit; we did do a hell of a lot of walking.
We walked past the building where the Austrians were staying for the Olympics; and they were having a very loud party at the time; I never knew their music was so catchy!

So yesterday I got drunk for my first time ever...And it was...interesting, to say the least.So yesterday I got drunk for my first time ever... in Personal More Like This
I'll be honest; at first I was like "Might as well"
Then, when the wine glass was set in front of me, (Which was huge, by the way) I was all :iconwheatleyplz::iconsaysplz: "I can't believe I'm finally doing this!"
First glass didn't do much other than make me feel quite sleepy, so when offered, I had a second glass.
After that, well, once it begun working, it was like "Woooo! I KNEW this would be fun. They told me it wasn't fun at all, and I BELIEVED 'em! Ah! I'm loving this! Whale of a time..."
A hiccough through my nose that smelt really strongly of alcohol triggered a 15 minute long giggle fit, where I was reduced to tears. Attempts to walk down the hallway a little later resulted in my lurching at a peculiar angle; mashing my face into the wall, giggling and sniggering all the way.
I want to do this again.
Ulrich, Niranye, Freud, Thoughts, Words And StuffSo I was thinking, just letting my mind wander, and then I thought about this series of notes exchanged between me and Sharquelle where I was basically just asking help to find some "annoying habits" specifically ones that Niranye has. I had already figured out the ones for Ulrich (sometimes gets too excited about things most people don't give a skeever's ass about) but I had nothing for Niranye. We figured there are none. Or more like, Leandra said there are none and I kinda just agreed because she was right about it (direct quote: "Strange quirks!? Annoying habits!? No such thing, she's an elf and a woman. The most perfect combination between species an chromosomes imaginable.").Ulrich, Niranye, Freud, Thoughts, Words And Stuff in Personal More Like This
So today I thought and figured that Ulrich is very similar to me, except he's brave 'n stuff
Which led me to wonder what Sigmund Freud would have to say about those two... And that makes me kinda glad that I never met Freud personally.
Another thing that I thought about today was, just stuff and things.
About Mankar Camoran (Lore Bomb)So I was doing some research on my antagonist, Mankar Camoran, and I found out some very interesting things. It'll get more and more interesting as you read on (in my opinion at least).About Mankar Camoran (Lore Bomb) in Personal More Like This
First, that he's half Bosmeri. He's said to have born to Camoran Usurper and a Bosmer mistress of his, but that's impossible because Mankar is Altmer and Camoran Usurper is Bosmer, so I think there was threesome happening, and/or Usurper lied about his mistress when the public heard and kept the Altmer lady hidden, showing some random Bosmer.
Second, Mankar Camoran is likely to be Dragonborn. This is never really mentioned anywhere, but in the game, he is wearing the Amulet of Kings when you see him in Paradise. Guess what's so special about that amulet (besides the fact that it's like the Emperor's crown). Well, it's said that only a Dragonborn can wear it. And then there's the fact that in the first volume of Mythic Dawn Commentaries, he wrote: "When my voice returned, it spoke wit
Nerd Rant - Khajiit MorphologyI've posted this to pretty much everywhere where I have an internet presence. A TES facebook group, an ESO guild forum, Tumblr, and I even tweeted a shortened version of it (very shortened, in two tweets). I thought of writing the whole thing here again, but it's almost midnight so I'll just put a link to the Tumblr one. Also, if you have a Tumblr account, reblogging would help to get it noticed.Nerd Rant - Khajiit Morphology in Personal More Like This
So here's our premise, how Khajiit morphology works: http://uesp.net/wiki/Lore:Khajiit#Morphology
My argument is that the Senche in ESO are more like Pahmar, and the game would be both more lore-friendly if they changed it to Pahmar, and it would open some doors to make the game a lot more interesting.
Anyway, here's the Tumblr link: http://dft.ba/-Senche-Tiger_Rant

Old Jokes (Meaning John Travolta's Oscar mess-up)First off, I'll start by saying that according to my latest news, I have Wednesday and Thursday off (it's some week's Wednesday and Thursday, I'm pretty sure it's this week, though knowing me it might be some other week ) and I finally got over that writer's block I had. I was getting worried 'cause I was stuck in Chapter 16 which should come out next Saturday (I still need a title! If I can't think of one, I'll just post it without one. Screw titles. I figured I'll do Ulrich's biography without chapter titles, I spend way too much time thinking about them anyway and then it ends up being a crappy title. Those that I don't think about are a moment's inspiration and they're perfect (Enchanted Ice, Mythic Dawn, Road to Sentinel, Jewel of Alik'r, and, well, that's it )). Anyway, all those things in parentheses are just me going on a tangent.

The same happened for TFIOS. I had decided to read it, though not yet started (other books to finish first) and I heard the news; "TFIOS movie coming out next year" (next year last year, so 2014).
Looking at what I'm gonna be reading after that, keep an eye out for a Witcher film series (monster-hunting with swords and magic & alchemy), and also Manifold (dodecahedral robot alien spiders and thinking moonrock plants, etc.)
P.S. Watch out Sharquelle for when the last chapter of Aronansa comes out. Maybe a TV show is in the making (weekly chapters would be kinda hard to make into movies I guess)
