!!Talk to me about Project Diva F
and how the second one is coming out November 18
which just happens to be the date DA: Inquisition comes out, too
WHICH WE PREORDERED THIS WEEKEND GUYS I DON'T THINK YOU UNDERSTAND.
I'm so pumped.
Theology and research and writingYou guys know what I enjoy? Theology. Like, all the theology in the effing world, especially polytheism. That's my favorite kind. It's no secret I have an affinity for the gods of Olympus, but in revamping Malach's history (which I'm still in the process of transfering from this account), I'm looking at every fuckin' religion I can: Norse mythology, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism, Haitian Vodou, Ancient Egypt, Mayan and Incan stuff--ALL the things. And it's fantastic. I'm learning so much!
See, what I'm trying to do is figure out a way in which all these varying theories and such can mesh or overlap. You might be surprised to know that there is a TON of overlap between religions you wouldn't expect. For instance, Norse mythology and Christianity and Hinduism all have a "great flood." Pretty much every religion has a pair of "divine twins," obviously everyone has an Earth god/ess. Hinduism's Kamadeva and Olympus's Eros have an awful lot in common (although Kamadeva's bowstring is made out of
Follow-upOkay, babs, so it looks like I'm going to be moving all my original stuff over to a new account for like, real life professional shiz. Don't worry, all my fanfics and whatnot will stay here, and if you're one of the few who are interested in my original stuff, you can note me and ask for the new name.
Professional EndeavorsWho's writing a comic script? This chick. Oh yes, it's a real thing. You may or may not recall me talking about it a while back, but I still firmly believe that Malach needs more media to represent her, sooo I'm writing a comic for her! I've been researching a few different formats, but I figure each employer will probably want it a little different, so I'm going with Dark Horse's model for now. They published Neil Gaiman's Sandman series, and I've heard good things about them from lots of people, so they would be my first choice to work with (haha assuming I get a choice at all). But of course, I'll be submitting the thing(s) like crazy to everyone who will take it. >.>
...I'm also considering making a professional dA account? I made a new tumblr specifically for actual serious grown-up writing bizz, so maybe I'll do the same here. Keep all my fanfics and such here and just move my original work there. I will keep you guys posted on that.
*heavy sigh*Do you babs know of any good artists who are taking commissions? Like...big ones? >_> It's really difficult sorting through al the various commission-related journals looking for what I want, so if you guys have any recommendations, they would be highly appreciated. -_-

Ahem.I may or may not have had a dream last night that this dating sim had somehow become just...lesbians, but with a bunch of my existing female characters--like Malach and rock-star-Sable, some magical girls, this dragon-rider princess I made recently, etc. (Except in the dream, I was just playing the game, not making it.)
it was weird. But like...it was also REALLY cool. *rolls around*
Opinions, please! For a new projectI am endeavoring to write a feminist dating sim. I’ve been playing a few of them lately, and I’m sooo tired of their tropey sexist bullshit. I like the idea of a dating sim; it’s cute, and it has potential. Which is why it’s that much sadder that they’re all EXACTLY THE SAME.
Some features I intend to include:
1) different gender options for the protagonist
2) male and female love interests of varying orientations (who are not all straight white(?) skinny pretty boys)
3) more choices—that is, more opportunity to affect the storyline
4) related to number 3, choices to argue with or get pissed off at your love interest if he/she says something that offends you
Some features I intend to completely exclude:
1) cliché anime boy tropes, i.e., the naughty flirty one, the douchebag tsundere, the scary-looking one who’s actually really nice, the childhood friend, etc.
2) “you can’t/shouldn’t do such-and-such, since yo

Contest Winners!It may have only been ten entries long, but our first contest was a doozy to judge. Partly due to the nature of the contest, but also due to the wide range of themes explored by the participants, from romance to mental batles. Our judges were looking for cohesion and creativity, and I do believe we found both. Without further ado, here are the winners!
An Anthology of Flowers by introverted-ghost
An interesting theme and well thought-out reasoning took the judges near-unanimously. Inspired by Stephen Chobsky’s The Perks of Being a Wallflower, introverted-ghost uses her feature to consider what it means to be an introvert, and does so in stylish, lyrical prose.
Perspectives – Black and White by MadHat11D6

From Out of the Clear Blue Sky Comes a FeatureGreetings, all. I felt a sudden urge to create a Feature. I have more in early development, so if you aren't featured in this one, watch for upcoming Features from me.
Please take the time to get to know any new-to-you names from this eclectic mix of fine deviants. I hope some new dA friendships start here!

Dirk X Male Father Reader
*this was a idea that wouldn't leave my head. so its been geeting on my nerves 4 a while now ani hav 2 let it out
Dirk was panting heavily, trying to dodge and block your attacks the best he could. You held a katana in each hand, two more strapped onto each side of your hips. You were known by using all six swords, but you were currently using two at the moment. Dirk couldn't believe what he saw before him, from what he remembered, you had died long ago when Dirk was 6 years of age. But there was one difference about you now, you weren't wearing your shades. Instead, you wore a mask that resembled that of a demon's. The blonde's orange eyes widen as you disappeared, you reappeared behind the teen. Before Dirk could turn around to face you, you had swiped a kick to the side of your son's head. Causing him to fly to the side, the blonde had hit a stone wall, falling to the ground. Dirk slowly, shackenly pushed his upper half up, he coughed up b
Adjusting The Antennae (Ep. 14)Hello everybody! I’m so thrilled to see you could make it to the 14th installment of ‘Adjusting The Antennae’ in this beautiful month of September. Yes, yes, I know it is the final day of September and I'm really cutting it close but I got it out in time and that's all that matters, right? Right. I hope you are all well, lovely people. And I hope you're enjoying the weather too as those in certain parts of the world are enjoying the beginning of fall whereas our friends on the other side of the world are enjoying the spring. I hope we're doing well in school, eating well, and living right.
Today's guest is extremely special to me and really, everyone should have a person like this in their corner but before I tell you all who this absolutely beautiful deviant is though, I am your host, chromeantennae and I'm glad to have you all here for the 14th episode of ATA. It is an absolute honor to be a part of your day on deviantART.

Taking Care Of Little Natsu! NaLu Ch.6 EndIt has been days since Natsu came back, Little Natsu was still staying at Lucy's aparment and right now Natsu and Lucy were having a small talk...
"So, what are going to do,with both of them?"-asked Natsu to. Lucy in a low voice.
"I don't know, we cant just go and force him to leave,neither we can't do that to the small happy..."-Said Lucy, as Natsu was going to say something, Little Natsu came into the room.
"Happy is not here anymore...he left..."-Said Little Natsu.

"Don't worry...it does not matter where you are, or where you are going to be, from th
THIS STUFF IS AWESOMEOkay, I've been on DeviantArt way too long to not do a single feature. Like, seriously, it's sad. So here I'm gonna put together a little montage of literature pieces I quite enjoyed, and maybe you'll find joy in them too.
Please keep in mind this is my first feature, so it might kind of suck, but bear with me. If you have any suggestions on how to improve upon it, please let me know, also tell me any literature pieces that I might've missed out on, cuz I'd love to read it. I don't know if this will be a regular thing or not, I guess it just depends on how well this goes.
Well, without further ado, here's the feature! :iconhappyderpplz:
24.09.2014 - Words on Wednesday VIWelcome back to another edition of my feature series, Words on Wednesday. This week's feature was hard to select - so many beautiful pieces to choose from! But perseverance and a lot of raging at my chrome tabs have finally gotten me down to this week's feature!
Recap on how it works: There are seven days in a week, and seven pieces of featured literature! Below the thumb, you will see a beautiful quote from within the featured piece.
Here we go! In no particular order, here are seven incredible pieces of literature that you should all go and check out, favourite, comment on, and love!
