Life, Life, LifeWell, update for the last few days: I applied to a local college to attend in the fall--hopefully will be accepted and on my way to transfer there from the tech college I'm at now (for those interested, it's UW Stout--they have a great animation program). I might not be able to apply for scholarships because I'm so horribly late, but eh, it should work out. Other than that....well, I'm single now, for the best since it was becoming pretty obvious I was caring for the person more as a friend than anything more. It happens, life rolls on; I'm keeping pretty content trying to figure out how to do monster high faceups, and that's pretty fun--took waaaay too much work to get her factory makeup off but hey, its nice. maybe should continue some clay charms for a commission piece for a friend's coworker.
Ahhhh progress of thingsFor those who haven't yet noticed, in the last few day's I've finally finished up all of the information for my Tarael species! I've gotten the prices, the rules, and ahhh it feels good to have that entirely completed, to be honest. I also uploaded a fic that apparently I didn't transfer from AO3 onto my dA, a Reader/Joel oneshot I wrote a while back (and still have yet to write a part 2 for but it still is planned).
What comes next is probably (most defnitely) my Truth Within stuff. I gotta make up a nice, rough outline of plot for the new story, and make sure to get Sakajin's profile drawn up all nice so there's a handy reference for her. SO YAY.
So my friends, feel free to ask freely about the Tarael if you're interested in them! I hope to have have the occasional adoptable posted every now and again for auction, so keep an eye out for that as well!

Ahhhhh back in the gist of things.I haven't felt the need and motivation to draw in a long time (at least, not to the degree I am now). I think it might simply be due to the fact that I've been fairly productive (or at least I feel that way), and I've been getting a bit more lack of hours at work with the whole after-christmas-hour-cuts. No matter what the reason is, I'm happy to feel like it again--I haven't honestly done any art before all those Tarael things so YAY A GOOD JUMPSTART. For those of you still following everything for Truth Within, that was a major thing I had on my to-do list, since Sakajin is a Tarael now (had to get all the details and whatnot down before I got started on her new design).
I'm also apparently into digimon. A lot. Like I've had the first movie on the television as background noise for the last day (god, I adore Diaboromon and Omnimon like nothing else omfg). So uh, if a readershot crops up somewhere along the lines of that....just....giving you all a heads up >>
New Years Resolutions and Other ThingsWell, this is spectacular. I've actually logged on at least once or twice a day for the last week to actively check my messages and finish up tweaking my profile. I know it's been prolly a year since I've been active on dA (since I have a tumblr I use a ton), but I think it's sorta safe to say I'm gonna be active on here again--though its sad that a lot of old friends I used to have on here moved on to other stuff/places (WHICH IS COOL NEW STUFF IS ALWAYS AWESOME). Easy to forget how much I frequented dA just a few years ago.
Well now that I'm being active again, I have one very important question for all who remember me or any of my old friends on here: any of you play WOW? Because I do. Perhaps a bit too much, but I started a few weeks back and was curious if anyone else did SO MEH (if anyone wants to add me, just shoot me a note).
And for anyone who's been living under a rock (or maybe a log if that's your thing) the beginning of 2015 is coming up soon, and you know what that
No matter how long it has been or how far I go......I always seem to come back to Star Wars. IT IS A CURSE I TELL YOU! ...Well, at least this reminder of my origin fandom (in some sense) has struck quite literally at the beginning of my winter break--so I suppose that's good? Either way, It's really nice to be back into a fandom that's so personal to me--I still have all my old art and fanfiction (all of the peeps who remember sakajin, I have all of the Truth Within story and goodness has my writing gotten better since). I hate to say it (actually no I don't), but I'm thinking of taking another stab at the Truth Within saga--probably not going to use what I had written all that time ago since it is so old, but I think I'm going to try brainstorming a revamped version of sorts, tweaking some details I never liked, updating characters, ect ect. In the end, it will probably have the same core plot that I had written/planned for the story, though it's definitely getting a faceup since it's in dire need.
Ugh, how I missed Sakajin an
Profile Update and OverhaulWell, I think it's been due for a long while now. I actually was in between either deleting this account and starting a new one, or overhauling this one and updating everything that needs to be updated/tweaked/deleted/ect. This is mostly due to the sheer fact of how long it's been since I actually did more than look through any messages and maybe look at some of my watched artists/groups.
For those of you who haven't been keeping up with my tumblr, I've been going on through a lot of new things, and specifically, I've pretty much cemented myself into the EDM family and fandom. So, just giving you all a heads-up, my profile is going to be updated to reflect that fact. I'm going to clean through my art and such, upload any new things, but in general I'm doing my own version of spring cleaning.
Attack on titan Levi x Reader [LEMON] P1This morning you woke up more tired than the days before, you knew that if titan struck today you would be the one of the first to get eaten, you sat up in bed pondering what would happen today. Getting out of bed wasn't difficult for you but this morning it was a mission. You stood up, stretched a bit, you room was small enough to fit only a bed and a few areas for a cupboard and belongings, yes it was very confined but you got used to it. As you stood up you felt sort of dizzy and hot-headed. When you looked in the mirror of your body you thought ‘I have lost a large amount of weight from fighting titans'.
Your face looked paler than before, 'must have been because I didn't get enough sleep' you thought to yourself as you yawned. As you put on your clothes you realized that you were late for breakfast. You knew that Erwin wouldn't be happy if you were late for anything more or less Levi. Worst case scenario would be for you to run into Levi and get told off. After gettin
A Naughty Visit (Sebastian Michaelis x Reader)(This was a random dream I had before and um, yeah. It's kinda...smutty. So yeah. I made it into a Reader x Sebastian Michaelis kind of fic. )
[Your name]'s POV
It was a normal evening for me. Sitting in my room, in front of my laptop, chocolate in hand. Well, it's more of a daily routine now until I heard a knock at the door. Rather, the bell rang at the gate.
I went out my room a bit annoyed for this person just broke my daily routine.
I was surprised to see Sebastian there in his butler outfit still handsome as ever. I let him in and told him to sit down.
"What seems to be the problem, Sebastian?" I asked. "Bocchan asked me to give you these." he said while taking out two envelopes from his coat. I took the envelopes and read the letters inside. They were invitations. I stood up, to put the envelopes on a near table. "Ah, I'll just grab a drink if you don't mind."
I was in the kitchen, happily drinking my glass of water. Man, one was an invitation on a mission and another was for a
PE: How to Make the Most of Your Lit on dALit Basics Week
It goes without saying that being noticed on dA as an artist isn't easy. Add in the fact that you're submitting literature to a predominantly visual arts site and you have an even lower chance of being noticed. Your friendly Literature Community Volunteers do their best to feature an array of poetry and prose, but even that is only a single day feature of ONE of your deviations. Getting a following or even just getting deviants to read your lit and give feedback is hard work. But you'll see a common denominator amongst those deviants that have made it.
It's community involvement. You shouldn't expect to receive if you're not willing to give. But how exactly can accomplish that? Is going to random Lit Groups and leaving critique on a dozen or so deviations a week enough? Probably not. Will participating in group challenges, prompts and contests get you noticed? Not by itself. What if you run a weekly or bi-weekly feature article of Literature on dA? Still, no.
Possessive Sherlock x Reader LemonDisclaimer: I do not own Sherlock (sadly) and I do not own you. Contains sexual content.
You had just got home from a party. When you opened the door to 221B, it was dark. You started feeling for a light switch and when you found it and turned the lights on, you saw Sherlock sitting in a chair staring at you. You froze and just stared at him. "S-Sherlock, what are you doing home?", you stuttered. He was supposed to be working on a case with Lestrade. Sherlock stood up slowly and said, "Lestrade let me go home. But what I came home to was unexpected." As he was talking, he held up a note that you had scribbled for John. 'Going to a party. Might not be home tonight.'. "I can expla-" you started to say, but he held up his hand.
"Did you happen to dance with other people?", he said, walking towards you slowly. 'He's talking about other guys.', you thought as you started to back away slowly. "Y-Yes but-" "You know I don't like you doing that, Y/N.", he said, getting clo
Building Your VocabularySo you want to build your vocabulary? The answers are really simple, I swear, and you can do it! However, before we go in any detail I want to make something clear...
Just because you know those big, fancy words DOESN'T mean you have to or should use them!
Smaller words can be as effective and, sometimes, more effective.
Vocabulary is important, there isn't any doubt about it. Using, or finding, the right word can be key when you're writing. Though we don't always quite know the right word and maybe you never knew it or you just can't quite remember what it was. Either way, you are now determined to fill up that vocabulary!
Large words are fantastic, if used properly. Don't try to impress your reader by throwing out a bunch of obscure, long words. If you must use them do so sparingly. It's just as important to remember that your readers are intelligent and chances are they may know what the word means or they'll use a di
Shining Star (B.S X Reader Shower Lemon) -New-Warning! This has a "semi-lemon" written in it. If you are not a fan of lemons, or you can't take things getting a little heated...DO NOT READ! Thank-you, and have an amazing day. -Cimberla
You enjoyed the feeling of the hot water on your skin. It was a rough morning dealing with Black Star so you needed all the relaxation you could get. You grabbed your shampoo and squeezed a good amount onto your hand. Your (length/color) hair needed a good wash so it can look smooth and silky. You gently rubbed the shampoo in your hair and the smell of strawberries filled you nose. You remembered the conversation the night before when you told Black Star about the party, it made you feel depressed.
"What the hell were you thinking? I could understand one of them but everyone?! Tomorrow night! Why did you pick now to tell me?" Black Star yelled.
Ticci Toby x Reader: Shattered like Glass (8)
*Ticci Toby's P.O.V*
I felt myself being dragged on like..a wall I guess.My eyes were closed and I didn't feel like opening them.I couldn't feel anything at all.
I opened my eyes noticing that my Goggles were cracked..my mouth mask was torn..and I couldn't feel a thing.Every time I blinked..I ended up somewhere else,but sometimes when I blinked I can see (Y/N) screaming...in pain.I-It's horrible...
Everything then stopped and I couldn't even move my arms or legs. I shook my head and focused my vision.I blinked seeing (Y/N) just standing there in a Long Black and Blood red colored Dress. She looked up at me with Light yellow eyes.T-They weren't like that before...
"Y-Y/N...Y/N!!" I shouted and struggled,but I realized. I was all chained up..I heard the others groan in pain. Everyone looked fucked up.I tried not to laugh but Slendy's face looked like a Giant White Zit With Black Ooze Spilling out of it .I let a small chuckle escape my mouth.

5 Years Old----
You had a big smile on your face, you had moved into a new neighborhood and you were excited to meet new people. Your parents had moved into a large and scary looking mansion that sat upon a large hill, a graveyard surrounded your new home and some weeping willows here and there. There was also a dark watered pond in the backyard, you were standing on the front porch. Watching as your Uncle, Fester, was taking boxes of TNT out of the Moving Van. Your Mother approached you from behind, her tight dress made her look like she was gliding across the floor.
"______ Dear, are you ready for your first day of school tomarrow?" Morticia said in a warm Motherly voice, you slightly turned to look at her. You slowly nodded your head with that large Cheshire smile upon you
Specific Imagery: What Makes a Poem Good?Specific Imagery: What Makes a Poem Good?
So what makes a poem good?
According to Samuel Taylor Coleridge (please, never just call him Sam) the definition of poetry is "the best words in their best order".
Fine. But what exactly does that mean?
It means that good poetry is about much more than just matching rhythm and rhyme. What elevates any poem above its peers is the specific choice of words to match the poet's intent.
Say what now?
Think of it this way: our chosen words are our color palette, and the way we combine them equates to brush strokes and blending. Strong words equal bold hues, while overused and cliché terms are a lot like faded watercolors. You want your hard work to stand out, not blend in, right?
Of course I do!
Then my biggest piece of advice is this: choose your words.
What do you mean? I always choose my words; I'm a writer, after all!
What I mean is, do your best to choose the most appro
ZenWriter, and amazing and free program.For those of you who wish to have a peaceful environment when you write, whether it's poetry, novels, short stories; you will absolutely love ZenWriter. Seriously, I downloaded it myself upon a recommendation, and I find that it's so nice. You can choose background images while you're typing, peaceful background music, and it even offers TYPING SOUNDS. It's so peaceful to hear the sound of an actual typewriter (or water droplets) while I'm writing my stories, and I cannot even begin to say how relaxing it is, and how efficient it is now to write. I mean, it's no proper substitution for Microsoft word, but if you just want a program that's better than wordpad and is FREE (yes, it is so very free), then I highly suggest you take a look at it c:
You can download it (again, free) right here: http://www.beenokle.com/zenwriter.html
