First Days are Always the HardestAD scowled as she read the newspaper article again. She was still on the front page, and the story had spread to many other papers during her first week in this strange world. The story of her “attack” on that “anonymous source” was false, of course, but she didn’t think anyone would stay calm long enough for her to explain things. Even worse, the story had been updated to include alleged sightings of her, blurry photos, and interviews with town watches and bounty hunters. There was some good news though. It seemed at least one group of the hunters weren't chasing her for the reward, and simply wanted to find her to keep her out of trouble. She supposed she should be grateful, but in her mind it was still best to avoid contact at all, if possible. AD sighed, stashing the paper away in her small shelter to use as fire kindling later. Said shelter was little more than a shallow burrow covered with brush and cut bamboo, but it would serve her needs for now. LFirst Days are Always the Hardest by arkansandragon
Fan Art Idea?So... I've recently discovered the surprisingly addictive game known as Minecraft. I thought it was cool. Still like Istaria better. And than I discovered the Minecraft mods. Oh. My. Gosh. O_O Those are just amazing! So that got me wondering... I've been watching "Gaijin Gamers Play", and how our favorite Goombahs and friends would like game some Game Exchange mods. Now, I'm just starting out with learning code, even though I have a game design hobby. So I probably couldn't pull it off yet... But if there are any Minecraft modders out there who are also fans of Game Exchange... Would anyone be interested in trying to do a Game Exchange mod for Minecraft?Fan Art Idea? by arkansandragon
Alien Invades Sarasaland! - Again!Tatanga. A name that still strikes fear into the hearts of many. Even now, years after his invasion of our fair nation and the capture of our beloved Queen, Daisy. Even after Mario's valiant rescue and saving of our land.Alien Invades Sarasaland! - Again! by arkansandragon
But now it seems an even greater threat has come to Sarasaland.
Yesterday afternoon, thousands watched the skies in awe and terror as a giant vortex of fire appeared overhead without warning. It reportedly moved over the bamboo forests of the Chai Kingdom for several seconds before vanishing, raining flames and destruction as it went. Local authorities have confirmed that fires were started and strange metals were recovered at the scenes, but that the fires have been successfully contained. Thankfully, no injures were reported.
Researchers now believe that the so called "vortex" was, in fact, an alien spacecraft in disguise. They now have reason to believe that it might possibly be a scout ship testing our defenses for a later invasion. The queen, while
Welcome to SarasalandThe day AD came to Sarasaland, a whirlwind of fire tore through the sky, raining debris and burning shrapnel as it went. A green dragoness fell out of that vortex, unconscious and with scales still smoking from the heat. In her claws, she clutched a blood-red stone blazing with fiery light. The ruby dimmed as she fell, until it pulsed with the faintest inner glow.Welcome to Sarasaland by arkansandragon
It’s gonna blow!
Get everyone out!
Pain was the first thing she noticed, as consciousness slowly returned.
What are you doing?! We have to move!
I can buy you time! Help the others!
The blast still rang in her ears, as did the voices of her friends.
You can’t hold back a blast like that!
Had they made it out in time? Had she? This didn’t feel like death...
It felt like... falling...
Real Scientific Danger of My Artistic InfluenceOne of the many complaints lobbed at me is that I have enormous influence on a younger generation and therefor it is incumbent upon me to shape up and fly right so these young tikes get the best artistic advice possible. IE: People worried that my “bad art and methods” are corrupting the next generation of artists and therefor I should stop making art altogether to prevent this.Real Scientific Danger of My Artistic Influence by TomPreston
Setting aside the ignorant and harmful messages that this sends to young artists (such as the ignorant concept that all young artists only ever follow ONE artistic influence their entire life and aren’t influenced by ALL the art around them at all times), I decided to see how much credibility this “fear” actually had... using MATH.
So I have about 57,790 watchers on DA. I’m not counting other sites like Facebook or my website because there’s obviously some overlap, and some of the people who hate me will fill in that gap. So roughly 57,790 people on the planet watch me.
