“So, for the remainder of the lesson, and for homework, I want you to do a short piece of writing on your favourite holiday.”
Peter lets out a sigh. Twenty-nine little faces, and one big one, turn to look at him. It’s the third time he’s had to do this school year, and always, always they make the children do a piece on holidays.
“Is something the matter, Peter?” the teacher asks. A couple of nervous titters. His eyes immediately lock on the sources of the sound and its creators fall silent. He watches the wispy shapes the sounds make disperse. He shakes his head. The whole class lets out a lilac breath in unison, unaware that they were holding it in, and there’s the dry cream sound of scrabbling for paper and pens as twenty-nine little hands reach for the necessary resources to begin the task.
“Remember to plan first, so you make less mistakes and your story is in order!” The teacher raises her own voi

GamerThe point of video games has always been entertainment, right?More Like This
It may, essentially, be that.
But gamers know better.
It's the thrill of a race without getting tired.
It's the suspense of your looming death without a real threat.
It's knowing that you're rich beyond your wildest dreams without owning a single penny.
And with the sound of 8-bits ringing in your ears every day
and knowing that you're good at something
you wake up feeling like the first player.
So get out your controllers
prepare to lose a few friends only to bring them back to play some more
complain about the graphics
rant about the story plot
wish that the buttons were looser
get stuck somewhere
make fun of the characters

watch the cut-scenes

I see a lot of comments here and there that go something like this...
"50 points?? Why would I pay 50 points for an adopt..."
"100 points? Are you sure you're not overpricing that...?!"
And I'm sure many of you have seen similar comments, now I understand that points aren't the easiest things to accumulate when you're fresh into dA or even we

Response To The
"Grow the Fuck Up" Manifesto
I: the creative, intelligent, self-confident, and eclectic,
...am tired of people using the word "we" as if they knowingly speak for the majority.
Now, reading the GFU Manifesto, I won't say that I entirely disagree. I agree that "part of living in the real world is going to be offensive. And, when we are offended, we are brave enough when sufficiently offended, to peacefully and courteously confront that which offends us and try to resolve it on our own; it is our responsibility as human beings to do so."
However, part of our responsibility as human beings is to accept responsibility for wrongdoings. In this case, that would be submitting works to a website that violate the rules that you agreed to abide by whe
