Perhaps the real rickroll was the friends we made along the way.

  • Hey pro tip:

    If you ever need to research anything about Greek deities, titans, mythical creatures, and the like, theoi.com will be very helpful to you.

  • I had a dream that my oc Keith from Not My Circus was falsely arrested for tax evasion and I had to help him escape (it was like a point-and-click adventure game). And his only concern was that he needed to get home in time to see The Black Parade marching through his city

  • Here's a little poem I found in Splatoon that I thought was cool and kinda inspirational:

    Finality's not what it seems.
    When your end comes, rise and run.
    Don't let defeat dissolve your dreams

  • hey, artists/character designers of YWS, where do I find ideas for character clothing? I'm looking for ideas for casual "brainiac teen boy" clothing, but most of the time can only find fantasy clothing or formal wear.

    Spoiler! :

    This is the character btw. I used to draw him in a tri-colored shirt and overalls with patches, but I'm not sure if it fits anymore. If anyone has any outfit suggestions I would appreciate!

    LadyMysterio Pinterest I'd say, or look at like animated shows that are just like about "regular kids" maybe teen titans or smth. Just an idea.

  • there's something oddly therapeutic about looking at your old stories

    I have these two ocs who are brothers named Angel and Devil, and I wrote a story a long time ago where they argue about the ocean being a soup or not.

    And this is the ending:

    “Oh yeah, Angel, I just have one more question: is soup a drink?”

    Angel’s head jerked in Devil’s direction. He had the look of an enraged
    college student who was operating on three hours of sleep and twelve shots of expresso.

    “Start running?” Devil asked.

    “Start running,” said Angel.


    glad to see that my stories have always been absurd


    Areastrixleiell You better runnnnn from the devil, you better ruuunnnnn you better run from the devil, you better hiiide hide from him-

    IcyFlame As a coffee professional I feel the need to tell you that espresso is spelt with an s

    I now can't stop thinking about soup

  • Hey is anyone doing artfight this year (or have done it in the past)? I want to join because it seems cool but I'm a little nervous lol


    OrabellaAvenue I'm still debating... I really like art and want to try it, but July is going to be busy for me. (And I've never done it either) (But I've never done it before)

    GengarIsBestBoy Yeah, this will be my first time too! I'm a little nervous tho since I've only ever shared my art on small platforms.

  • Sometimes I think about how Keith from Not My Circus was originally named Kevin, and that made me think of two things:
    1.) why didn't I name him Kevin?
    2.) Kevin is Keith's evil twin, which means Molly has an evil twin named Dolly

    So I made a comic about it

    Spoiler! :

    I was trying something new with the eyes, most of the time I draw my eyes as half black, half colored, but I've always thought it looked a little strange. But when I give my characters actual pupils it ends up looking uncanny. Oh well, I'll figure it out eventually.

    Not My Circus is gonna be on a sort of hiatus, because I'm not really satisfied with where the story is going but I don't want to stop it completely. Idk when it'll be back but it will someday.

    In the meantime, here are some fun facts about Not My Circus:

    --Keith canonically swears quite a bit, but he had to stop after Molly started to pick up on his bad language
    --Keith loves musicals; his favorites are Hadestown and Beetlejuice
    --Keith's long eyelashes aren't due to his mutation; it's actually mascara
    --In the beta stages, Keith was originally a twitch streamer
    --Beta Molly was originally a talking mallet. Her current design is based on one of my old ocs
    --Molly and Keith like to do karaoke together
    --Keith is bisexual
    --There's a reason Molly loves violence so much, and it's actually quite sad... But that'll be revealed later!
    --Molly watched Ratatouille once and tried to control Keith by pulling his hair
    --Keith works as a web designer

  • I wrote a poem based on this. It's kinda short but that's ok
    You're Blue Like a Front Bottoms Song
    GengarIsBestBoy wrote:Hey quick question does anyone else perceive numbers, colors, and words as having colors, genders, and personality traits? For example I perceive the number 5 as female and yellow and laughing, so whenever I write down the number 5 or see it in a math problem my brain automatically plays the image of a yellow laughing five. Does anyone else experience this as well??

    Now that I think about though it this can make for some good poetry, I should go to that now
