*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. -_-
LikeHelp me, I'm holding on for dear life
Won't look down, won't open my eyes
Keep my glass full until morning light
Cuz I'm just holding on for tonight
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
How to ruin your life:1) Go to YouTube and watch both Don't Hug Me I'm Scared videos
2) Ponder the meaning of life for a bit
3) Go to tumblr and browse the #padlock tag
4) Realize what exactly it is you're shipping and how unreasonably into it you are
Repeat steps 2 through 5 as needed
*cough*To the people who watched me expecting more JackRabbit: I'm afraid you're going to be disappointed. The fics I have up here were written like, a year or more ago, and I honestly have absolutely no plans for writing that couple again. >_> I mean, there's a chance you'll see stuff involving Jack--but it'll probably be Black Ice. There's a chance you'll see Bunny, too--but most likely in relation to Cupid.
The closest thing you might see is my band AU, in which 1) everybody's genderbent, and 2) it's actually a BunnyxPitchxJack ot3 thing.
So, um. I just thought I should let you guys know. Not that I don't appreciate you being here! I just know a lot of you watched me after favoriting all of my JackRabbit stuff, so I wanted to go ahead and be clear.
*heavy sigh*Did I tell you guys about the conversation where my sister basically pitched me on a Malach comic? Because ever since then, I'm not satisfied with literature about her; I feel like she's too big for it. I feel like she needs media--she needs an image, a voice, a visibly snazzy wardrobe. She needs to be able to present herself as the intimidating and fascinating creature that she is.
And as an author, I know I'm shaming myself by saying, "words aren't enough." (If I'm perfectly honest, I feel this way about a lot of my stories, simply because I want to give as vivid and detailed a representation of the image in my mind as possible--and words inevitably leave something to interpretation.) But I feel like she, in particular, would work so much better if she could present herself more completely. I want to give her a comic, a movie, a TV series. She's a large enough presence that she could easily be a fantastic anti-heroine (if you ask me, though I may be biased). Somehow, I feel people's
Does this count as a self-promo?It's really more a character promo. >.> Have you guys acquainted yourselves with my Grim Reaper? (Note: this woman is not a Grim Reaper; she is the Grim Reaper. I.e., the fucking boss.) if not, you should. Because she's probably one of my top three favorite characters I've ever created. You've probably seen a coulple of the things I've posted in regards to her if you watch me, but just seeing the title and the first few words isn't really eye-catching. So here I am, throwing it in your face instead!
The best one to start with (if you were interested in doing so) is the Guardian Angel one. I'm just sayin'. She's kind of a wonderful creature.
HahaAnyone know anyone who needs any writing or editing done? No? Haha, I'm so broke. v_v
Ooh, but on a completely separate note: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZTmF2v59CtI&sns=em
Go be amazed by this thing. The dance! The costumes! The wonderful message of the song (aside from like, 2 lines)! And did I mention the dance? *heavy sigh* I want to start learning belly dance stuff again. v_v Even though I know I'll never be as amazing as this woman; she's just perfect. It makes me wanna cry. ;_;
Fan Fiction On deviantARTGalleries Month
What Is Fan Fiction?
Everyday, we are inspired by movies, television, novels, and other forms of media. They engage our minds with a variety of stories and characters, their plights and triumphs, their everyday minutiae. Fan fiction authors are so enamored with these other worlds and their inhabitants that they must partake in the stories which have brought them so much enjoyment. They expand on the current universe, explain gaps in the narrative and delve into characters' motivations.
A good fan fiction (or fanfic) is more than simple borrowing another writer's characters and universe. The fan fiction author must immerse his or her readers in the story, make them believe it is a natural extension of the source material. Characters have their own mannerisms and quirks; each universe has its own history and rules that need to be followed. The fan fiction author must master the nuances of those characters and the world they inhabit (unless purposely writi

BibliophiliaAll the writing featured below is literature I haven't read but fully intend to because of how promising the preview is.
To all the books I haven't read:
I have become your bookshelf
of dusted titles and busted spines
with arms that are full of fantasy
and romance and a head full
of memoirs I haven't written,
their lexicon curling my tongue
around five dollar word-plays
just behind the sheaf of my teeth.
With definitions straight to the point
and description airy and lofted
a dictionary defenestrates pages

September's Recycled Haiku Contest!Introduction
You have doubtless rewritten a poem once before. Maybe even several times. But have you ever converted the ideas from one piece into another form entirely?
This month, you'll get the chance to do just that. Our September contest here at Multhaiku is for you to rewrite an original poem as a haiku.

27.08.2014 - Words on Wednesday IVWow, look at me! Managing to get a feature up two weeks in a row! You should all be very proud of me. No, seriously. But anyway, welcome to the fourth volume of Words on Wednesday! As always, I am blown away by the wonderful writing that you all produce. Here are just a few of the gorgeous pieces I've seen this week.
I've got to say, for whatever reason this week's list of feature pieces was harder to select than ever before. Maybe you're all on top form this week! Who knows. This week, I've chosen to feature a number of pieces that are quite personal, and are all the more powerful and moving for it.
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, c
Taking Care Of Little Natsu! NaLu Ch.3 The day stared as any other, just for one exeption...Natsu, Lucy and Happy were walking down the road..Little Natsu and Lucy were walking to the guild ...but grabbing each other hands...Natsu smiling and at the same time showing...pride?
"Good Morning, everyone!"-Said Lucy.She heard the answers of "Good morning,Lucy" at her.Natsu then walked towards the middle, no letting go of Lucy's hand and said the following...
"Attetion, everyone!"-Scream the little Natsu.He then saw everyone turns their heads towards, with a smile he said...
"Im going to marry Lucy!"- Said Nastu...Wait What?! Lucy was really surprised at him. All the guild just said "Awww!" Knowing that little Natsu had the mind of a little kid and he probably didn't quit undertand the meaning of marriage.
"Natsu, I thought you wanted to marry Lisanna"-Said Erza stepping in.
"No! She is my friend! I love Lucy!"-Said Natsu with a smile.Erza just smiled at him at now adorable he is.Then Lucy stepped in.

a dangerous hallucinationThe light coming through the window was bright,
much too bright.
Even though my eyes were closed
I could see it-
The skin of my arms prickled,
sweat dripped from my brow.
It was two in the afternoon but…
the sun was setting
through the window facing east.
I should have seen the hutch,
shelves lined with bone china
decorated with delicate leaves and vines.
I was so thirsty
and reaching for cups that should have been there.
Instead I found a billboard of butterflies,
the colors raging
more than any rainbow
I'd ever seen.
Their wings fluttered and flashed
yet somehow they moved in slow motion.
I wanted to stand,
wanted to reach out and touch them but…
I couldn't move,
and yet I laughed
ignoring my dry mouth
and the tingling in my feet.
There was a tempest
on the rise
and in my blood.
A sugar rush disguised
as a riot of butterflies
and they were swarming me.
There was a small vial
of insulin in my pocket
that I nev
