dArama - ISSUE ONE - Love.
The dynamic between core staff, volunteer staff, and the community can at times be pure quality dArama. It's worth noting that for years I've worked pretty hard to remain neutral on community politics. Today, I'm going to shatter that concept. Needless to say, I am extremely politically aware of the inner workings of the deviantART community. I read *a lot* of journals, comments, forums, chat rooms. I have fake accounts. I spy. But I don't spend my time talking politics, instead I focus internally at deviantART designing technologies and implementing understandings with core staff to address the issues I see pop up. It's time to take a mo
Dear Yaoi Fangirls: I Hate You
It's true. I hate yaoi fangirls, and I am one. You may be looking at me with tears in your eyes right now and saying, "Why Chopstick... why?!"   Well, I'm gonna tell you why. 1.  You're just writing about them because they're hot. Let's just forget that they hated each other in the game.  Let's completely forget that both of them were completely straight and had loving girlfriends in the anime.  And heaven forbid I bring up the idea that they were really "just friends" in the manga.  I'm not really bitching about drabbles or crackfics so much as I am the fifty-page-long epics that completely ignore canon.   AND I MEAN COMPLETELY.

Untitled Tiger Project Part 1
Drip. Drip. The strange feeling came over the tigress Penumbra once again. Her paws tingled, her charcoal hair rose as if electrified, and her body felt faintly as if it were being constricted by the air around her. She flicked her ears in irritation, but she was too used to the phenomenon to express actual alarm. She didn't even bother to raise her head off of her single broad foreleg. The sensation would pass, as it always did, and she paid little mind to it.      It was the water leaking from the rusted pipe above her head that caught her interest, though. She had been absent-mindedly watching the pure water fall

Nude Art Petition
It seems that DA suffers from an over-representation of female nude photography compared to other types of Nude Arts, and that male nude, especially, lacks the representation it deserves. This petition proposes : _To enlarge the nude photography category to a NUDE ART category. _To split this nude art category into a FEMALE NUDE ART and a MALE NUDE ART categories, which would both have their own gallery director. This would ensure a better representation of male nude and other sorts than photographic nudes in the Daily Deviations and on DA.

Twilight-Uncensored Ch.1Review
Review of Chapter One From Twilight By Stephenie Meyer Years have gone since I've first run into a little thing called Twilight and now I've come to the part of the getting over it and letting kids have their fun, but in all this I've decided to trudge through this pile of shit and actually reread it for the first time since I took an exacto knife and cut a hole out of my only -stolen- copy. Please note that I'm doing this not only for my own closure, but for your entertainment. I am reading this. I am not enjoying it, but I also want to lay to rest every beef I have with Twilight. [Though just the first book, the others can rot in hell.]
Such Sweet Sorrow
Tell me about something that made you sad. Uh. Okay. Let me think. [Pause] I was sad when I sent you to the airport in San Antonio. That made me sad… You leaving again made me sad. Yeah. That made me sad, too. Parting is always sad, but you know what's worse? It always gets better. The first couple times, you're like—she's leaving, I'm so sad I'm going to cry. And then, after a long time, you get used to it. That is sad. Yeah. I understand. Mm. Let's sleep now. Okay. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- She fell into a slumber quickly. I soon heard her gentle and

A Guide to Writing Combat-Related Mental Illness
Coming Back from Combat: A Writer’s Guide to Combat Related Psychological Illness in Fiction The aim of this guide is simple: plenty of people want to write about war, to explore it, to understand it and understand soldiers they know who are in it or have come from it. But, often times putting the aftermath, the pain, and the psychological impact war has on the mind into words is difficult to do well. This guide exists to help fiction writers accurately portray psychological disorders in their work, because the people who suffer from these disorders and their loved ones deserve honesty and do not deserve to be misrepresented. The guid
The Doctor
When I was seven, I was diagnosed with emotions. "Poor girl." I heard them say. "She'll never survive this one." I laid with my face towards the ceiling on the cold examination table, listening to them discuss my fate. I felt something breaking in my chest and something burning inside my throat. A small tear slipped down my cheek. "Doctor! Look at this!" Shrieked my mother, "Something is coming out of her eye." The doctor rushed over to me and wiped the tear from my cheek. He touched the top of my head as he whispered, "I am so sorry." And then he turned to my mother. "It's a tear. It means that she is sad." "Sad?" My mother asked inquis
How to create an UTAUloid
Hello, thanks for clicking this. In this tutorial, I will tell you a bit more about how to make an UTAUloid. First, you must ask yourself: What language do I want to make my UTAUloid sing in? Most people use so called "recording lists", also known as "reclist" to record the sounds used for their UTAUloid. Without a reclist, recording is almost impossible for a newbie like you. These links have a lot of great reclist. Maybe you can find one that is for your language! =) http://vocaloidotaku.net/index.php?/topic/7319-cv-vc-japanese-expect-new-reclist-out-soon/ Two CV VC lists: One in Japanese, one in Bulgarian. http://vocaloidotaku.ne

Murdering Mary Sue
Murdering Mary Sue Every aspiring writer has met her at least once, whether in his own works or in those of others. The alluring temptation of a perfect character taunts the author from one side while his muse urges him to keep writing from the other. Who wouldn't love her? She's the most beautiful, talented, fantastic woman in the universe, with not a flaw in sight. Every woman wants to be her; every man wants to marry her, so why would anyone want to kill her? Who would want to murder Mary Sue? I would. I and many greater authors have been working hard to keep this succubus in her proper place: the trash can. Mary Sue is one of the wors
He said Big Brother ::NorwayxReaderxIceland::
“I WILL KILL YOU!” You hear someone shout from the living room. Norway runs into the kitchen to where you were preparing sugar cookies to hand out. He hides behind you just before Iceland comes into the kitchen with a highly flustered face gritting his teeth. Now you were confused. Why was Norway hiding from Iceland? “Err…what’s…going on?” You question both countries. Iceland looks at you then turns away, his face turning even redder. “He called me big brother~” Norway still crouched behind you cooed mockingly “He called you big brother? How’d you do that?” Iceland whip
