Prose, November 9th, 2017Am I dying...or am I already dead...? Is that the reason I feel so numb, cut off...so emotionally disconnected from the world around me...? It this merely my body remaining in motion until the proper time comes to drop and become one with the dirt and worms…? Is that the reason I shy away from boredom but have very little will or desire to be anything substantial...because I am already, effectively...dead…?
What will the next four or five decades really be worth if my will to be...anything...is permanently buried in the past…? I can know there is a future ahead, and I can know I will ‘live’ to see it but I doubt very much I will have any serious connection to it or a substantial role in it. An anomaly...that’s my fate...nothing more than an anomaly...sucking up resources until the day I drop… A meager leech taking more than I can possibly give because basic survival is the only instinct I have left...
What do I really love…? What can I re
A Moment of Poetic Inspiration 7-9-2017My arms feel heavy, as if they have borne a great weight and must now rest. Yet there has been no weight and rest aplenty. The ear hears the sweet harmony of ten-thousand maniacs as I despair at this disconnect from reality. I can only manage a minute or two, a dozen brush strokes at the most. Work is laborious despite the relative ease of it all. And not only in front of the canvas. Showers become impossible as well. Arms and legs struggle under their own weight as I attempt to wash away the grime of the tedious hours, grime that comes so cheap. I struggle to scrub the itch away as upon my head I spread an even cheaper grime. Will it ever truly fade, this itch...? Will I ever beach this disconnect, bridge this divide that leaves me as a museum piece, motionless and hardly regarded as the world moves past, ever faster, increasingly disinterested? Is there any hope for the future...? If there is, it keeps silent in my company, so silent as if to scream silence into my brain; quietly lau
5 Years - What Will The Scraps of Tomorrow Bring?This is just a selection of lesser pieces from my scrapbook that I've posted here on dA in the past five years. I'm feeling as though I'm entering a more productive phase thanks to the medication but I don't yet know what will be posted in the coming months. I do hope to have at least three new BIG pieces done by years' end though. For now, enjoy these almost arts...
I only joined dA in the first place to see more of the sexy art of :icongb2k: but my love of art has sustained me through these five years, through all the trials and errors and all the ups and downs my life has seen, and especially through the nausea that caused me to give up on that OTHER social network that caused so much hassle over the minutes and seconds during which I endured its loathsome effect on my life and society...
That said, my thanks to all my wonderful dA cohorts for a great roller-coaster of five years, but especially let me recognize :iconsambeawesome: :iconcanankk: :iconpitnerd: :icononeeyedneko: :i

Fuck Republicans, Fuck ConservativesSo I've just spit a fair amount of well deserved venom at my 'elected' representatives in D.C. - Chuck Grassley, David Young, and absolutely least, the bread bag bitch herself, Joni Ernst. Hope I get a nice, polite but secretly condescending form letter back that basically ignores my concerns as a voter...
Here's what I wrote if you're interested -
"You and your slimeball cronies in Washington have been itching for a chance to swing your political dicks in the direction needed to remove the best piece of healthcare legislation ever in the history of the U.S. and you deserve every bit of venom coming your way for it. It's bad enough that Governor Dumb-stad screwed the pooch with his idiotic Medicaid privatization plan in the first place, but now you fuckers are going to screw over even more Iowans, who have benefited for the first time ever with the provisions of the ACA, than you liars purport to relieve with whatever stool sample it is that manages to get regurg

Anyway, Planned Parenthood of the Heartland has a booksale twice a year to raise funds and IAF always makes it a point to come out and help in some fashion. They apparently had a bigger load than usual this time but it was well worth it.
A guide about referencingWe are a group of artists that have noticed there's widespread confusion and misconceptions spreading about the limits and ethics of referencing, so we have decided to help the community by clearing up the idea of what referencing is! -- You can also watch a video about it, just click here!
What is referencing?
When we talk about “referencing,” we could also talk about “searching for information.” Imagine that you have to do an essay for school about plants, animals, planets, in other words, a subject you don’t know much about. What’s the first thing you do before you start writing? Search for information about that subject, either on the internet or books, or ask your family and friends.
In the art world, referencing is exactly the same. It’s recognizing your lack of knowledge about a specific thing and seeking knowledge about the subject, so that you know more t
Doflamingo x Reader: Family Matters
There have been many things you have seen on Baby5’s face, but only rarely have you ever seen her looking glum. Most times you’ve seen her, she’s either exuberant, furious, or comically crying, depending on her “boyfriend” situation. Other than that, she was always relatively calm, with a slight smile.
“Little Miss, what has you feeling so down?” You walk up to her side, putting a hand on her shoulder.
“(name), I wasn’t expecting to see you.” She sighed, and then chuckled a little. “How many times have I told you to call me by my name? I don’t need to be called ‘Little Miss’.”
“I will continue calling you ‘Little Miss’ as long as I am a servant working here at the castle and you are considered Family by the Young M
DeviantArt and Angry MobsDue to the nature of DeviantArt it is quite easy to perceive that there's "a lot of people" who are upset with any given thing, enough so that you could even believe that "everyone" believes the same thing.
I felt that perhaps the community would like me to explain how DeviantArt views these types of things.
First of all, DeviantArt, Inc. is extremely deliberate. We don't do anything accidentally. Everything that hits the community is the result of a team collaboration that usually take weeks or months to complete. And so when we make mistakes they are felt by a group here or by our whole team.
Things you should know:
First of all you must believe that our team is 100% motivated to ensure that DA is healthy, and that decisions we make turn out to be better than how things were before. Each decision is likely to affect different pockets of people, and so you will always see the group that's unhappy pool together. The happy group is happy, so they don't tend to band toget
