Are We Not A Democracy? (Trump Election Backlash)
I originally created this account for the sole purpose of commentating on current social and political issues that are of importance to me, all the while not calling out any particular political party. This is still where I stand, but I find myself unable to remain silent on the insanity which has currently gripped politics.
I will say Trump was far from being my first choice of candidate (like Hillary). I consider myself as more of a leftist on many issues, but on days like these, I would be too ashamed to ever wear such a label. I am sick of feminist, LGBT, BLM social justice warriors, and other liberal lunatics resorting toward the juvenile/criminal practices of rioting and demonizing people based on who they vote for.
The question it boils down to is, do we have a democracy, or not? YES, Trump was elected president of the United States, for better or worse depending on your opinion. He WILL be president the next four years unless some “liberal luna
Beware of fake IRS calls!
I had gotten two calls 6 days ago from two automated messages saying I am being sued for fraud by the IRS. The second call said they had made a warrant out for my arrest that day. Because of it being an automated message and the 6 day period of me actually listening to the phone call, I did have my suspicions it was fake (cuz lol I haven't done anything wrong) but I was still worried. I talked to my aunt and my dad for them to clear my mind, and they informed me that if there was an important thing the IRS wanted to say, they'd do so through mail, not phone calls.
I wanted to make this journal to inform those who would have freaked out about a message like this to know it's all a scam! You are not in trouble!
I even went looking online for more confirmation: https://www.pindropsecurity.com/did-the-irs-leave-you-a-voicemail/
With that site, I guess mine was a "robocall".
I've already deleted my voicemail, but if I happen to get these again I plan to report them to the links provid

A Theory on Teen Titans GO!
I have seen a few theories around about the universe of TTG and how it relates to the original Teen Titans series. Now I think we all know in actuality that TTG is a spin-off and has no real connection to any other show, but there are other arguments to be had. Some people have theorized that the entire show actually take place in Beast Boy's imagination, saying that the bizarre and comedic nature of the show is really just how Beast Boy saw the world in Teen Titans and these are just stories in his mind. Not a bad idea, but there's one I've found more interesting.
In the original show, in the episode "Fractured", the Titans meet another version of Robin, who they nickname "Larry", who comes from an alternate dimension, of which there are many, supposedly. Larry possesses a magic finger which can bend reality. Larry seems to be knowledgeable about the different dimensions, especially this one, (the Titans' dimension) as he is Robin's (our Robin's) biggest fan. He is far sillier than no

Edit: Okay, wow--If I knew this journal would get the attention that it's getting I would have tried to make it sound a bit more professional and a bit less ranty
I'm also really glad that so many of you could share your input and experiences. It's really important that we understand this--especially on a site with so many young, impressionable artists. It's easy for us to think that our time is only worth the end product. When i first joined this site (i was 13), the first type of commission that I took was a full picture for only 5 points. Granted--it didn't look the best. i was only 13 after all, but at the time I didn't even know the value of points. When i was about 14-15 I started looking to get more serious about my art. I wanted to make actual money off of it, so I started considering prices and i never charged anything more than $20. I was still really torn because a few people were still telling me that I was underchar

Can I just say...
When someone posts drawings or writes about their favorite pairing, don't:
Complain about the amount of it they postTell them you'd prefer a different pairingComplain about the type of pairing, be it straight, yaoi or yuriSay the ship will never happen / isn't canon. Isn't that part of the fun?Tell them that you ship one of them with a different characterBash the pairing.
The pairing might make the person feel happier than they normally would. So don't ruin it for them, no matter how much you disagree. They shouldn't have to feel like they have to apologize for drawing / writing about them so much.
I'm not saying you have to ship it too, I'm just requesting that you respect the fact they like it.
This is due to the influx of comments and notes I've received about my OTP, and what I've seen others have to deal with. If you don't like it, just exit out and wait for something different to show up. But please don't complain about it.
Concerning Sailor Moon
Ok so... I was wondering if ANYONE had any information about Sailor Cosmos. Who is she? Why isn't she mentioned in anime? Why did Naoko Takeuchi create Sailor Cosmos? What is her purpose????
In the orginial Sailor Moon: Sailor Stars, will they Sailor Stars appear in Sailor Moon Crystal? I'd, personally, love to see them appear in Sailor Moon Crystal.
Ugh So much I want to know about Sailor Cosmos. This stuff stresses me out sometimes.
female character irrational hate rant thing
my good pals what-the-honk and TheNobodyofaSOLDIER have recently made journals highlighting this topic, and I'm curious to get as much input as possible on it!! btw I'm just typing this stuff as it comes to mind so hopefully what I'm saying makes sense
I've kind of touched on this in the past -- with Petra in particular. But lately it's been bugging me more and more, and I just want to give my two cents about it. I'm sure some of you have noticed, whether you realize it or not, how female characters seem to get a lot of unfair hate. I'll branch of this a bit though.
For example, there is the phrase "strong female character", one that seems rather harmless. And everyone has their opinion on this, but here's mine. I'll watch movies/tv shows where the supposed "strong female character" is a girl with less personality than a burnt piece of toast, and is just strong because she blows stuff up or whatever. I have nothing against stoic characters when they're developed well and shown
Female Character Hate - RANT
what-the-honk made a journal with similar themes, so you should check it out for sure! This is more on the lines of just female characters.
Can the irrational hatred of female characters just stop already?
Okay, if a character is a poorly written or if they're generally a horrible person, makes sense. I get that not everyone is obligated to like the same character. Everyone has their own perception and opinion.
But, whyyyyyyy why why why the irrational hate of female characters!
There are so many beautiful ladies in fiction that get hate for NO REASON. I'll see these posts online, and the people hating on them literally say "for some reason." "They get on my nerves for some reason." There is no logical grounds for their hate. It's just...because they're there? Because they're female? Is it because they get paired with a frequently, lusted for male character? ...Is it because the male character canonly likes her?!
And why do female characters get more hate when
I finally realized that my traumatic past has been catching up to me. My unresolved fears and pain of abandonment as a child by my parents has seeped into my adult life. It triggers extreme reactions in me that drives people close to me away.
I like to pretend to be strong. That whatever comes at me in life, I'll just pull myself up again and get over it. I'd like to believe that what doesn't kill me makes me stronger. I'd like to pretend that if I somehow draw out pain, and put it on canvas, that the pain will be contained on canvas, and not deep inside me. But that's not true.
When I'm knocked down and broken, and left to pick up the pieces of myself, I lose a bit more of myself each time. Not everything can be glued back together again. And never stronger than before. I can't trust again. I'm afraid of people. I'm afraid of being close to anyone.
It's hard to get up each morning. I feel hopeless and helpless. It doesn't matter that everyone tells me otherwise. I don't feel that

What's your wishlist?
Hmm, for me, I have a really useless wishlist LOL. I already bought whatever I needed this semester - like tablet pen nibs and sketchbooks. Anddd I guess the only "non-practical" thing I bought was the Dream in Color Artbook, which I'm really looking forward to receiving. >u<
As for what I want currently, I don't think it's something that others can grant tbh. Sounds more like a resolution list than a wishlist haha.
I wish to...
1. find the patience to spend 20+ hours on an art piece
2. participate in an artbook contest //if I ever have time
3. celebrate Valentine's or maybe just NOT celebrate Singles Awareness Week lol //or at least get some damn good chocolate
4. multistream with my dream teams <3
5. continue to always improve
6. put more of my imagination in my pieces //if I can figure out where I put it haha
7. become a better person
8. always remembering why I'm pursuing the path I'm on now
9. become s

+Watch for points?
So, I realize I have a lot of watchers who came to be my watchers in order to earn through dAhub which is cool.. it's like I pay a fee for advertising, and in exchange some people will watch me while others will unwatch, or not watch at all. No harm no foul etc..
However.. I have a system that let's me know when I'm being rewatched. You heard that right! I KNOW when you rewatch me.. every single one of you who unwatches and rewatches.. I know!
I realize that there have been some bugs and DA honestly will remove people from the watch list, and I know that it's natural to unwatch people, I wont hold it against you, really I wont. The people I'm talking about here are the ones where it's pretty obvious that they're just watching for some points, and then unwatching and doing it over and over and over again for
But for all of you who are only interested in a few and feel the need to watch and unwatch me multiple times p

Art Thief: Amazon Shirt Vendor (how to report)
UPDATE 2: I did some searching, and I found a report and violations policy.
This is what I found:
You would need to be the rights holder however, so this report form is suggestible to be used by the affected artists. Though I guess if you really felt like reporting just to grab Amazon's attention, but I would not suggest it since legally you can't do much beside noisily complain if it isn't your content. By all means leave one star reviews on products and link to the original artists and mention that the work was stolen, that would bring attention to the issue and perhaps make the vendor take things down.
Something I picked up off my twitter feed moments ago.
There is a vendor on amazon that has taken the work(s) of fan art artists without permission/grant
