Star Catcher, part 12
8:00 AM
"You okay, Conner?" Sam asked as carefully as he could manage.
"Yes, I'm fine." replied Conner, showing a smile so trivial that it was more likely to be a forced one.
The three of them were at the table, having an unusually quiet breakfast. The weight from yesterday had yet to leave their troubled minds, although the heaviness varied with each person. Sam was concerned because he had been there when Conner broke down in the playground. Dean, meanwhile, acted like his typical casual self, but deep down, he was absolutely tense, because there was no telling when Conner would be put in another lethally dangerous situation, whether he was aware of what was happening or not.
Dean did not tell Sam what took place last night; he did not dare tell him that Conner nearly fell off the rooftop in a crazed effort to reach his family. Sleep became hard to come by for Dean during the hours that followed. One reason was that he had to struggle to recover from the rush of adre

I'm Suing You: Why Do We Make Mary Sues?
First of all, I freely admit that what I say isn't gospel. I am a total amateur at art and writing. I've learned everything that I know via the internet and a few drawing books. It's just that I appreciate all of the tutorials here on dA that have helped me out, and I want to put a little bit of my own methods back in.
Let me get this out of the way:  I only write tutorials if I feel that I have something to add to the topic or if I feel like it's one that few people touch on.  So then why on Earth am I writing about Mary Sues?  Everyone's written about them!  And it's true; this topic has been well-explored in countless places that it seems pointless to go over it again.  Heck, you can find one of my favorite Sue-torials here (WARNING: THESE THINGS ARE HILARIOUS).  I'm not even going to tell you what a

The Cracks Begin to Show: Making Flawed Characters
First of all, I freely admit that what I say isn't gospel. I am a total amateur at art and writing. I've learned everything that I know via the internet and a few books. It's just that I appreciate all of the tutorials here on dA that have helped me out, and I want to put a little bit of my own methods back in.
I've run across an odd myth about fictional characters here on good ol' deviantART:  If my character isn't a Mary Sue then I've definitely written a good character.  Sadly, this is not so.  A Mary Sue (see here for more) is just a specific kind of bad character.  Not all bad characters are Mary Sues.  It would be like saying that since the movie you made isn't Birdemic or The Room, it's a good movie.  Erm… that's not quite the case.  Maybe your skills are only OK.  What's a budding writer to do?
Making a good character is a lot more complex than just avoiding

A Rose by Any Other Name: Naming Your Characters
First of all, I freely admit that what I say isn't gospel. I am a total amateur at art and writing. I've learned everything that I know via the internet and a few drawing books. It's just that I appreciate all of the tutorials here on dA that have helped me out, and I want to put a little bit of my own methods back in.
First things first; I have a quick, but essential assignment for you.  Read the following three sentences below, out loud:
A weird name does not a unique character make.
A weird name does not a memorable character make.
A weird name does not a good character make.

Say it.  Say it twice.  Say it three times if you must.  I wish someone had made me do it years ago.  You must remember that the reason that I write these tutorials isn't because my writing is super-duper-perfect now.  It's because it used to be absolutely ATROCIOUS, just plain awful.  I've made most, if not

My Top Ten Tips for Starting a Webcomic
(aka "I Wish Someone Had Told Me This")
Are you thinking about starting a new creative endeavor that involves sequential art? Something you hope beyond family and friends will read? Have you thought about this project at all past the initial "can't wait to start working" phase?
Stop. Listen to what I am about to say. Many webcomic writers/artists make the same mistakes (myself included) by jumping straight to the "let's start drawing now" phase, bypassing the planning stage. Here are the most important items to consider before you even ink out the first strip:
Consider if there is a chance your comic will become printed. Not only do you need to consider its dpi (dots per inch), CMYK comes into play as well. It is much harder (sometimes impossible!) to retroactively make these changes instead of making the comic print-friendly beforehand. You can't enlarge a small comic that is built for the web without great quality re

Hi, I'm Jessa. No, not Jesse or Jenna or Jessica. J-E-S-S-A. Get it, got it, good.
Anyway, I'm a major fangirl of a lot of things but I'm always looking for new stuff to obsess over, so here I am.
I like drawing and writing, though I still don't have a crazy amount of confidence in my skills. I love it when other people like my work or at least like the concept so lots of feedback would be great.
I've seen lots of awesome things here on DA and I hope someday someone is just as dazzled by my work as I am with so much of the stuff I've seen.
Tell me what you like and I'll tell you what I like, and maybe between the two of us we'll find something that we can both obsess over.
Thank you for visiting my page. ^^

Thanks for the favorite on my Adventure Time artwork! [link]

I just find the show so charming. I’m working on a few more AT pieces, but I love Bubblegum and Marceline the most. You?

I want you to know you are my friend until death. If I dont get this back I understand But I have a game for you once you read this letter, you must send it to 15 people, including the person who sent it to you. If you recieve 3 back you are loved. No one knows how important something is until they lose it. Tonight right at 12:00 a.m the person you like is going to realise they love you. Then something important is going to happen and between 1:00 p.m and 2:00p.m get ready for the biggest shock of your life. If you break this chain you will have bad luck with love for a whole year. Send this to 15 people and see what happens!
This isn't fake apparently. If you copy and paste this you will have the best day of your life tomorrow. You will either get kissed or asked out, but if you break this chain you will see a little girl dead in your room tonight. In 35 mins someone will say I love you I'm sorry or do you want to go out with me. Your time starts now.
