Random Favourites




I often have this feeling when starting to read a random story, say on Tumblr, that it's going to suck. I wonder if you feel the same way: that you see the opening line and think "oh this is not going to be good". I would like to compile a list of openers horrible fanfiction writers are most likely to use.

I have one:
"This is going to be a piece of cake!, [X] chuckled"
I successfully suggested a Daily Deviation! :>
That's a first.…
The Aztec Calendar by CacaioTavares
My suspicions are probably irrational, but I would really like to know if anyone regognises from the summary below a lit work you might have seen on here, perhaps even among daily deviations.

Reasons for my suspicions:
It's a contenst within a group for amateur writers wanting to improve their writing skills. The work is technically, structurally very sophisticated. I doubt a person with this skill would want to get feedback from the rest of us.

The contest's taking place in Poland. The story's not only set in America (likely Florida), but also uses the phrase "ounce of blood", which - as far as I know - isn't used in Polish (except maybe by doctors or chemists). This makes it look like a direct translation.

There's an error that can be interpreted both ways. The author didn't know there aren't almost any shops, places of commerce open 24h. This either proves he wrote it, because he's as ignorant of this fact as most of my countrymen, or that the original author made the mistake and the contestant was suprised to find it's been pointed out to him.

He had only 3 weeks to write this techically polished 12-page story.

The main story's about a macho type, drunkard, sloppily dressed guy called Bug (the names could've been changed) drinking Budweiser and watching a Lakers game late at night, waiting for a certain Jane to come home. Jane comes, tries to come in without waking him, but he's waiting for her. He gets jealous, accuses her of dressing for someone else (she claims she thought he'll like it if she dresses like this for him), holds her wrists and eventually throws her on the couch or bed. Later he hires a hitman to follow her and to make sure if she's seeing someone. Long story short: he follows her into a flat, finds his client was right, shoots them both dead without thinking and only then realises the "mystery guy" was his client.

That should suffice to identify the story.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I alredy tried to put some phrases in quotation makes for accurate matches and look up results with them in Google, but so far no luck.

I've been working on a video lately and here's the result. I synched footage, almost exclusively from Iron Man 1 with "Electroheart" by Amaranthe. There were too many scenes fitting the lyrics to pass it up.
The band has a male and female vocalist doing the clean vocals and the female, Elize Ryd, sings for the most part. I mention it, because they're a melodeath metal band - although with heavy electronica and pop influences - but it's metal with a tiny bit of growls nonetheless, so unless you can stomach that... The lyrics are near pop level innocent if the name of the genre made you think it's about some traumatic stuff.
Also take note that at some spots the footage flashes by too fast, but if the length of a verse is (one and) half a second there's really nothing you can do about it.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy.
Now, Kiss! - Power Girl Fan Art by Pedigri
Now, Kiss! - Power Girl Fan Art
This is my first FINISHED work after a long time of not being able to finish one, either out of a lack of motivation, fear of botching it, a lack of time or wanting to draw something else instead.

The whole picture was a learning experience. Many textures and colouring techniques you see here were improvised on the spot. For example I managed to overcome my long time problem of making things look flat (like the water or clouds). There are parts of it that I'm not happy with like the back of the ocean and the impression the sunlight doesn't reach the blue part of it, the transition on the clouds, additional lines on the right boot and bust - or the texture of the right rocket. It took me 8 days to colour and about 2-3 days to sketch and then draw the lineart.

There were days where I made only small progress, because I didn't know what I could colour without spoiling the whole. The last day(s) were frustrating as hell. I almost started to hate it, because of the stupidly put black spots on well lit clouds. I had to convert them to birds.

Again, the pic looks better when the sunlight blends the transitions with the white parts and makes the white parts glow.

Coloured with thick Bambino colour pencils and thick, somewhat oily Koh-I-Noor Harmouth pencils. Lineart done with stabilo fineliner.

"I am thy empire", spectrally whispers the Antipaladin as you approach him, what means in a language long dormant: "Please, tell me, how may I be of service?"

If you happen to seek the ageless counsel of an astrologer, the intuitive wisdom of a numerologist, or a soothing embrace for your spirit and mind, then you have come to the right place, and your pouch won't miss a gold piece, for I am the guardian seeking redemption by leading you through oceans of thorned labirynths until you find your way in life. Fear not, for I always leave paths to choose from instead of showing you the only way...

I am forever thyne.

Personal Quote: Reality is only for people without imagination
I did a little video where I tried to synch Disney's Frozen's Let it Go scene with the popular Get Jinxed song from League of Legends and tie it with its story.
I hope you'll like it.

I'm struggling to find time to get back into doing art, but I'm definitely going to do it. And I want to combine it with making videos.

Anyway, how have you been? I hope you're doing great.

Best wishes.

You're welcome.
Thanks for being open to feedback. That's not always the case, especially with people who'd rather push for publishing their work as it is instead of contemplating the feedback, because it hurts their ego or it seems like too much work. Glad you don't seem like one of those people.
