BLANK 400 QUESTIONS MEME!
((270+ favorites. Is that a lot? No? Well, it is to me, which is odd considering all I ever did was make the blank version of this meme which seemed lost to the annals of history or some nonsense. In any case, this is quite honestly the single most viewed thing uploaded to my DeviantArt, and technically, all I did was make it convenient'y applicable.
Is it actually 400 questions long? Eh, close enough. But don't blame me for the false advertisement, I added in a few mocks to make up some of the gaps, but it's such a wall of questions, I'm too lazy to fix 'em all.
Regardless, I'm glad to see this is getting a big resurgence, at least to my perspective, so by all means, keep doing them, commenting results, and what have you. It may not be yielding me traffic personally, but at least y'all're having fun with it, to some extent.

100Q to Develop a Character
100 Questions to Develop a Detailed Character
Ever have trouble deciding what side of an argument your character will take? Do you have trouble remembering small details about your character, and often change them accidentally in the middle of a story? Try this list of one hundred questions to solidify your knowledge of your character. Feel free to use this and post it as its own deviation. Just please link it to me in a comment if you do. Try to answer the questions in as much specific detail as possible. This is for you, so there is no use in cheating on it. I would suggest doing two for each character: one for the beginning of your story, and one for the end, to reflect the changes that happen.
1. What is your character's name? Do they have a nickname?
2. Is your character male or female? What is their sexuality? What role does it play in your story?
3. How old is your character? Does their age matter to them emotionally or socially?
4. How tall is your character? Does it affect the

A Guide to OCTs
Original Character Tournaments are all over deviantart and keep growing in popularity, but not everyone knows what they are or how to participate in them.  Since they're hosted by individuals and not actually affiliated with the website itself, there are no guides available to help explain how they work.  Hopefully, this FAQ will be helpful to anyone looking to get involved in OCTs.
What is an OCT?
OCTs, or "Original Character Tournaments" are contests held here on deviantart in which you can pit your original characters against other people's characters in a comic-style battle-royale.  To put it simply, it's a cross between an art competition and a storytelling contest.
OCTs can be hosted on someone's account, or they can have a tournament account of their own.  OCTs are usually open to anyone with a deviantart account, although some are invite only.  Information about who is eligible to audition will usually be clearly stated s

In-Depth Fantroll Questionnaire
Here Is a Really long, Very in-Depth questionnaire to really get to know your troll OC. You should come into this with an idea of what your character is like, or else you will get stuck. You can use this as much as you want, just if you post it anywhere, link back to me! And if you want, put a link in the comments. I would love to see your guys fantrolls. Some of the questions are very general, while others are Alternia- specific. I wrote them as if "you" are the character, but you can answer them in third person if you want. Feel free to skip questions, because, trust me, there's alot of em. But try to answer them all! Now, Enough from me, let's get started!
Basics:
What is your full name?
Gender?
What’s your Blood color? (Land or seadweller?)
What is your Trolltag and typing quirk?
How’s your vocabulary? Any particular phrase you like to use?
How old are you? When’s your Wriggling day?? (Link to an Alternian calendar in the description)

Character Interview Template
The following serves a few functions: Character development, if needed, or just a fun activity to pursue involving your OC. Some guidelines to follow:
1. Answer the following questions from your character's point of view. As such, the answers should be written in a first-person ("I") format.
2. Feel free to throw in your own answer, if you feel that the answer is incomplete. Yes, you, behind the fourth wall.
3. Since this is supposed to be fun, I'd prefer it if you and your character could minimize the bad language, so that everyone can enjoy these.
4. Have fun. Otherwise, there's really no point. Get into your character's head and have at it!
5. Anyone can use this template. But, please, make sure to reference the source. If you don't...

dA: HTML Formatting
What is HTML?
HTML stands for HyperText Markup Language. It's used when making a website, and available to use on deviantART to customise what you are writing.
Once you memorise the HTML, it's pretty easy and fun to use.
You can find some codes on the deviantART FAQ #104, but they don't give you all of them.
You can use the codes I am about to give you in artist comments, journal entries, blog entries, profile pages, and more importantly comments!
Literature pieces have less codes available to use than what I just mentioned, but there's still a fair few you can play around with. :)

Bold
Place at the beginning of your sentence and at the end for it to appear in bold.
Example: Bold turns into Bold.
You can also use instead of .
Example: Strong turns into Strong.

Place at the beginning of your sentence and at the end for it to be underlined.

Tony Stark X Reader - A Single Exception
"You did what!?!" Amber screamed at her date. You winced-you loved your friend, but she was really good at causing a scene. Especially in places where scenes should not be caused.
Taking a nervous glance around the restaurant, whose patrons were beginning to send nasty looks your way, you tapped your best friend on the shoulder.
"Amber, maybe now isn't-"
"No! Now is wonderful!!”
You cringed as her voice went up a whole octave and fifty more eyes swiveled onto you.
This probably was your fault, you guessed. You were the one who had just told her boyfriend was cheating on her, after all. And sure, maybe it could have waited till she got back from dinner. Maybe you didn't have to rush to L'huître D'or, the extremely high-class restaurant, in your messy work cloths as soon as you heard, pushing your way into a five star joint and interrupting her evening so you could tell her immediately. You didn’t have to.  But honestly, you wanted her as fa

Pen Abuse (TonyXTeenReader) OneShot

There is always that one question on a test that everyone gets wrong. Why does everyone get it wrong? Teachers usually blame it on the kids not paying attention, but in reality it’s because the ‘correct’ answer defies all logic!
“DADDY!” (F/N) screamed at the top of her lungs knowing that her father was in his ‘lab’ and most likely unable to hear her. However he could hear her and thinking something was horribly wrong ran upstairs ready to beat some idiotic boy up. But instead of seeing a crying daughter waiting to run into his arms, he saw a modestly ticked off daughter siting at the dinner table hunched over homework.
“What’s wrong baby,” Tony took a seat next to his daughter.
“Homework,” She pouted handing it to him. Tony gave it one look and could do it all in his head. “If you buy apples that are three dollars each and buying any number of apples has an automatic ship

Please refrain from asking questions that are already in here. I will most likely not answer them. If you have any other questions, please send me a message or a note. It might take me a while to reply, though.

Frequently Asked Questions
I get asked many questions and it can be hard for me to answer them all, so I have compiled a list of questions which I'm often asked in the hope it is of interest to some of you :)


--Making Art--

   

Where did you learn?
I've taught myself. My Secondary (High) School art teacher told me 'cartoon are not art' and so I had no interest in perusing 'art' classes any further. At about 13 I began to draw every day, less studying, more drawing what came to mind, creating characters and worlds and getting my thoughts and feeling onto paper. 
I joined deviantART at 15, and the feedback and critique I've gained through sharing my art online has helped a lot in my improvement. I wasn't born with any 'gift', unless you count functioning hands, I learned through practice. My early drawings are just as bad as everyone else's (I keep them as proof) I
