Merry Chrimpas!Nothing says "happy holidays" like Fluttershy! It's thoughtful, considerate, and, well, it's freaking Fluttershy!(For the record, I had to do some clever sh** to get that link to work, lol.)Merry Christmas, or whatever you celebrate! I hope your holiday is filled with good food, good company, wonderful gifts, and much-deserved time off from responsibilities.I am currently recording a DJ mix to play in my family's house tomorrow while we make dinner. I bought myself all the Mass Effect games and their DLC for the PC, and am saving them all for when I return from my trip to Mexico with my dad to visit his side of the family (who I haven't seen since I was four years old!). Can't wait to play through them all again from start to finish – and I never played some of those DLCs, so that'll be a new experience! I'm just not sure whether to go through as MaleShep of FemShep. I also bought myself
177......was the total number of hugs I gave/received at BABSCon this last weekend. Oh glorious day! (Well, three days, really.)Pictured: Left: statoose (me); right: xjuggernaughtx.This fine, loudly-dressed gentleman with me is my friend, xjuggernaughtx, who I met through the Friendship is Magic fanfiction community over a year ago, and got to meet in real life for the first time at the con in California.Giving out free hugs was by far the best part of the convention, for me. I was pleasantly surprised at the different kinds of hugs I got – and I mean that in all seriousness! There was fun, big hugs from bros; emotional, happy hugs to people who needed them; quiet, affectionate hugs from shy people; and even five hugs fro ma family passing by who weren't even at the hotel for the convention. That last one was particularly cool. Nobody can deny a free hug wh
Sheeeeeepy!Hey, got a moment and want to see something cute? Check out this character I commissioned over the week! —By RacoonKun.She's a sheep-girl named Woolly! Conceived in my mind and brought to life by the wonderful RacoonKun. I am super happy with how she turned out. When it comes to commissions, the end result will never be exactly what one had in mind, but I tell you, this is the spitting imagine of what I imagined.If you like it, go on over to the original deviation page and drop a comment and favorite, and I totally encourage everyone to check out the rest of RacoonKun's sweet gallery. My favorites of his are the humanized pony drawings specific to certain episodes from season 4: <

Ermahgerd, yesyesyesyesyesyeysyes...I don't know if anyone who follows me will be even close to as excited as I am right now, but to the one of you who is, you know how I feel when I watch this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s97B97dIpDQMirror's Edge 2! Mirror's freakin' Edge, freakin' 2! Mirror's Edge 2!!! Yesyesyeysyesyesyesyesyes!^ That's me right now. Ye-he-he-hesssss!

It All Makes Sense NowI'm actually rather excited to see how Equestria Girls pans out. Looks like fun, once you get past the whole purple-skinned humans thing!
Well, That Escalated QuicklyAh yes, "April Fools".Welp, to the bullshit-proof shelter once more! Who wants french toast? 'Cause I'm makin' french toast. We can cuddle, too, if ya like.
I have a ponysa now. Ponysas are cool.Ever wondered what I'd look like were I a pony? Of course you have!Ta-daaaa! Look at his scarf! Who needs socks or sweaters? S'all about scarves!Someday, I'll post a photograph of myself, and you'll see the resemblance. No cutie mark for now, though... Thanks to Quanno3 for vectoring him. Much love, man. In other news, you know what sucks? Stories ending. I've just recently finished what is now one of my all-time favorite fanfics (The Final Quest of Star Swirl the Bearded, a story with the bitterest and sweetest of bittersweet endings), and I'm steadily making my way through the final book in the Harry Potter series, so my feels are somewhat shaky right now. You guys ever have that? Took me two whole days to fully recover form the ending of Order of the Phoenix.
Oh hey, look, another finale-related journal!As if you didn't already have too many of those to completely ignore, like I do read patiently.Just wanted to throw my two cents in. What's different here is that the faces on the pennies that make up those two cents are happy ones!I really enjoyed the finale. True, it was a bit rushed, but I feel they did everything they could within the 21-minute boundary.My reactions in chronological order were:ERMAHGERD A TWI-SONG! YES!ERMAHGERD TWI TAP DANCING!ERMAHGERD COOL PLOTLINE!ERMAHGERD ANOTHER EPIC TWI-SONG! YES!ERMAHGERD FRIENDSHIP IS AWESOME!ERMAHGERD ANOTHER AWESOME SONG! YEHEHES!ERMAHGERD A CELESTIA SONG! YEEEEEEEEEEESSSS!ERMAHGERD TWILIGHT IS BEST PRINCESS!ERMAHGERD I CAN'T WAIT FOR SEASON 4!Seriously, though, there was a lot of awesome in this episode. Seeing little Twily growing up – seeing Celestia actually bow down to her – fills me with joy. I actually cried more than once during the songs. That's a sign of an awes

Label Me Lesbian: A Guide to Types of Lesbians [Bullet; Yellow] [Bullet; Orange] [Bullet; Pink]The following is an extensive guide to the different Labels a Lesbian may have. In my experience I have come across many Lesbians who just thought they were a Lesbian. This guide was at first for TheLesbianClub's Chatroom Classes, but I have decided that this could benefit not only the club but many people out there. If you are a Lesbian and questioning what type of Lesbian you are, then this guide is for you![Bullet; Pink] [Bullet; Orange] [Bullet; Yellow] [Bullet; Green] [Bullet; Blue] [Bullet; Purple] [Pride] [Bullet; Purple] [Bullet; Blue] [Bullet; Green] [Bullet; Yellow] [Bullet; Orange] [Bullet; Pink] LesbianLesbian is a term most widely used in the English language to describe sexual and romantic desire between females. The word may be used as a noun, to refer to women who identify th
Make 2015 awesome!A new year started. So some words of inspiration for those that want to pursue art this year... Don't worry about your age. Do not get discouraged by those that are younger than you and better. Some people start art when they are 6 years old and are prodigy's at age 16, others make a rather late or slow start. It doesn't matter if you're 10 or 80 years old. You're never too old to learn something new, and you're never too old to do something you enjoy. Everybody has potential. Even the greatest masters in art started out as beginners. It just takes a lot of time and persistence. Don't be afraid to fail. Most masters have failed more times than any beginner even tried. We only see the best from other people, and compare it with our own average. For every amazing painting a good artist puts online, he probably made 100 failed sketches. Sketches you'll never see and you'll never know o
Using HTML on deviantARTHello!Hello and welcome to my little html tutorial. I've been working with html codes for a couple of years and I'm going to teach you what I know about using some basic html on deviantART. This won't make you a html expert or something and I'm not an expert myself but it will give just enough knowledge to make your journals, comments, news articles and other neat and lovely looking. deviantART actually has FAQs about html but I still wanted to do this because they look a bit unorganized, in my opinion. Also, why would you want to look for those FAQs when you can just open this news article where you have everything in one place? You may already know some of these, but I hope you'll find at least something helpful in this news article.Some basic htmlBold text: <b>insert text here</b> Result: Example textThis html code will work in: journal entries, group blogs, comments, artist's commen
