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! Oh God the repeated squee... all the squee...If anyone out there knows how I feel, come here, let's dance to that song at the end of the trailer. Right now, come on!:icondummydanceplz:
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

Octopus Accessories - art thieveshttp://www.octopus-store.ro/this is their store. They are Octopus Acessories This is their facebook page https://www.facebook.com/OctopusAccessoriesThey had my drawings printed and were selling necklaces with them. They also lied to me that they did not steal them and took them from from some deviant who supposedly stole them first.They sent me this link to this deviant :iconxyqueen: but the drawings that belong to me were submitted 12 hours ago. So obviously this couldn't be true since Nijikon was over 12 hours ago, and they had them for sale since 3 days ago.This girl is so shameless, she lied to my face! She made me feel bad about calling her out and "making a scene" in front of her booth. OMG! And i believed her, i could have had her kicked out of the convention on the spot! She made me apologize for making a scene in front of her booth So she stole my art, and i was the one who apologized.THAT. IS. WRONG.Wow, if thievery was a game, she would be the final boss

Honey, We're Getting a MonsterfancyQUACKSA really hungry one...Naughty monsters are running rampant in the city again - you know the kind! They're short, noisy and make constant mischief on our doorsteps; begging for candy despite buying perfectly good pumpkins the same day. What's their dastardly plan for all that food? They're up to no good and must be stopped.We should feed the trick-or-treaters - to hungry, real monsters! There's a critter-shaped hole to this plan: we don't actually have any real monsters. But all we need are your designs to put into my Monster Making Machine to release them into the suburbs! Trick-or-treaters - gobbled up for good!How does this work? I'm glad you asked. The "Monster Maker 2000" is my old, modified microwave and this invention will create flesh-and-blood monsters from designs. A little energy combined with your designs will help bring our glorious abomination to life.Create & SubmitAs Professor Pudds of Monsterology, I'm very busy and need super tummy-rumbling monster
Monthly Theme FANTASY vote and win points:iconthefavouriteshowcase:Hello deviants This is the new way to find our winner of our monthly challenge at TheFavouriteShowcase: instead of using a Poll with the ten most voted of the period, we'll be using a blog to showcase the 20 MOST VOTED on this theme!This means, or so I hope, more exposure for your pieces and galleries.The idea is simple: each work has a number and all deviants have the opportunity to vote like if it was a poll...with the difference that you will choose not one but 3 favourites! All deviants may vote, INCLUSIVE who is participating; the participants may vote for themselves and ask friends and watchers to vote; this blog may have publicity by all means and be submitted in groups. The work with most votes wins 130 points;the second place wins 80, the 3rd place wins 50 and the 4th wins 25 .These prizes can be updated for the next themes with the help of our friends::iconalex-blaszczynski: is giving 100 points for every
Do you/a friend Need Exposure for Adoptables? I've recently found people who have made these really nice adoptables, at least artistically I think they're really well done. And then it pains me to see when very few people bid on them, and this amazing creation can only sell for like, $5 or something.Now I've never tried adoptables, and I'm not sure I completely understand how they work, but what I do know is that it seems artists who do them are really at the mercy of how much exposure they get. In that way, it's much like everything else; if you don't have the numbers, really great work goes unnoticed and sells for a handful of jelly beans.So I'm going to do a journal that features Adoptables.Do you have, or know someone who is selling *nice quality* adoptables but really needs exposure on them? Leave a thumbnail or link in this journal, and maybe I'll choose them for my feature. I can't showcase them all, but I'd certainly like to try and get a few out there.The world gets harder for artists all the time
