Don't forget, this isn't all I've got. I encourage you to browse through some of my older deviations, too! And PLEASE leave your comments!

Random Favourites

I don't have a lot of favorites. Giftart is the only thing I can be counted on to fave; you can find it in the "Friendables" folder.

Critiques


A Perry the Platypus plush, two Pascals and a Weresonic? I'm not gonna ask. Anyways, on to the matter at hand. This piece has excellent...


Alright, I suppose it can't hurt to get back into the practice of writing these critique things. Let's see now. The composition of this...


Okay, this is my first-ever critique. I've never given or received one of these before, so stop me if I screw something up. I don't kno...

I don't critique much, but I still give more critiques than I receive. But those of you with premium memberships can fix that, right?

If you don't like something, just look away and move on, and it won't bother you any further. True or false?

Commissions

Short Story (normal)
Self-explanatory.  Tell me exactly what you want, and you'll get it.  I'll write about just about anything, but be prepared to supply any reference materials I request.
Short Story (blind)
Like the normal Short Story commission, but with a twist: you're not allowed to specify a single detail about what you want.  I'll just do something I think you'll like.
Short Story (semi-blind)
The median between normal and blind.  You're allowed to specify one or two details-- the main character, or the theme, or perhaps even the title-- but that's it.
Character
Got a fictional 'verse you're proud of, but that could use one or two more characters?  I'd be happy to make a character for it!  (Pictoral references not available; textual profiles only.)
So I rented Wreck-it Ralph and The LEGO Movie recently.  This afternoon I finally set aside some time to watch the latter.  I almost gave up on it at first, but somehow managed to watch it to the end.  (I watched the former on a prior occasion, when the Internet was out.)

Maybe it's because I had the big reveal spoiled for me on a prior occasion (see here for details on that), but it didn't really grip me as well as Wreck-it Ralph did.  And what does it say about your intended moral when the characters in-story acknowledge that it sounds like something off a cheesy poster?

That said, I don't regret watching it.  It felt like something I really needed to check off my list.  It's harder to regret doing something than to regret not doing something.  If that makes any sense.

...I still preferred Wreck-it Ralph, though.  Maybe it just appealed to my interests more.

In other news, the next semester of graduate school begins tomorrow.  I think I'll be okay, but I also think I'm well past the point where I should have decided what to do with my life.

It's always an interesting feeling when you stumble upon a trope on TV Tropes that you yourself have made thorough use of without realizing it.

Case in point: Van Helsing Hate Crimes applies pretty well to a werebeast-hunter character I've been RPing with lately.

Fickbear Unbreakable Rope - Perfect for bondage!  Guaranteed inescapable!

So read the label on the box Cheetah's new rope had come in.  He was sure this new toy would be exactly what he needed to bring Gazelle into his clutches... of course, he thought that about everything he ordered from Fickbear Corp., and none of them ever panned out, but that didn't mean this one wouldn't.

Cheetah had already tied one end of the rope around a sturdy tree to one side of the road.  From there, the rope ran slack across the road to a bush, where the spotted feline waited with the other end in his grip.

The telltale noise of approaching hoof-beats caused Cheetah's ears to perk up.  He peered out of hiding, and sure enough, an ever-unsuspecting Gazelle was trotting down the road.  It was time to spring his trap.

A second before Gazelle reached the rope, Cheetah yanked it taut.

Immediately, he felt the tension Gazelle's momentum added to the rope.  Cheetah held his ground.  The rope stretched out like a rubber band as Gazelle tried to continue on against it, the rope making a seventy-degree angle against his body.  Sixty degrees.  Fifty.

Then, all at once, Cheetah lost his footing.

Gazelle could only duck and cover as Cheetah found himself yanked through the air, across the horns of his would-be prey, and then around and around the tree in a blur.  When the dust settled, the tension had wound the rope tightly around the tree, somehow binding Cheetah underneath it.

Cheetah blinked in surprise, still having trouble processing what had just happened.  Only his head and feet were visible, the rest hidden under the coils of the rope.  Gazelle trotted joyfully up to his bound rival, stuck out his tongue at him, then left.

Letting out a frustrated sigh, Cheetah began to struggle against the bonds of his unbreakable rope.
Cheetah-Gazelle: Two Dopes, One Rope
Because I'm sure at least one of you was dying to see a scene from one of the shows I mentioned here.

One thing I wanted to establish quickly about Cheetah-Gazelle was its counterpart to ACME Corp.  Can anyone guess how I came up with the name "Fickbear"?

(The page is headed by a picture of the Sneezing Wolf Studios logo.  It's a circular bust shot of a miserable-looking gray wolf against a night sky; the wolf's nose is visibly dripping.  The words "Sneezing Wolf Studios" appear to the right, each word on its own line; the words are colored to match the night sky backdrop.)

Sneezing Wolf Studios has produced many different animated shows over the years.  Below is a (not necessarily complete) list of them, in alphabetical order:

Annabelle the Cleaner - One of Sneezing Wolf Studios' early works.  An action show starring a maid with magical powers, combating and cleaning the most hazardous sites imaginable.  Canceled after one season.
Black and White - Another early Sneezing Wolf work.  A slapstick-oriented cartoon starring two dragons who love causing trouble in various forms.  Also canceled after one season, but has seen a mysterious resurgence in popularity lately; this may be tied to the unverified rumors of its protagonists roaming the real world.
Cheetah-Gazelle - A classic saga of never-satisfied predator and never-captured prey starring an otherwise unnamed cheetah and gazelle.  Set in the Savannah (as well as various other locations, from the second season on), the series follows the cheetah's many attempts to capture the gazelle, varying in scope but consistent in failure.  (Think roadrunner and coyote.)
Gadget Gerbil - An edutainment show about a brilliant and somewhat nerdy gerbil who uses various fundamental concepts of science and engineering to solve problems.  Well-known for the Rube Goldbergian contraption Gadget shows off at the end of each episode.
Labyrinth Burger - A whimsical take on Greek mythology, from which many aspects of the show are adapted.  The star is an optimistic minotaur named Jaccinus who works at the titular fast food joint, never really moving up or down in the world.
Princess Violet - Stars the titular Princess Violet, an insufferably proud royal lioness who firmly believes the world owes her everything, no matter how many times she ends up pushed off her high horse (which is very often).
The Spooky Scouts - One of SWS's highest-rated works to date, this show follows a monster-themed troop of scouts-- Crimson the vampire bat, Alexa the witch, Rover the werewolf, Finn the swamp monster, and Spin the black widow-- and the various misadventures they get into on duty.
Wiki: Projects of Sneezing Wolf Studios
I thought it was time to give the Sneezing Wolf Studios circle a rather generous expansion.  Look at all those shows and characters!

I really wanted to include one more, but I couldn't think of a suitable idea.  I was considering something about sports-- mainly because I'd caught a few minutes of Space Jam on TV recently-- but the idea didn't fall together.

If I ever get Undertale, I'll make my first run a genocide run, just to spite all the other fans.
So I was watching an LP of Jazz Jackrabbit 2 the other day, and it occurred to me that just about every character that can roll up into a ball gets sent through a pinball machine at one point or another.

I got the idea to deconstruct the phenomenon by writing a story about a character who CAN'T ball up going through one of those pinball levels-- and having a really bad time because of it.

Somehow, though, it isn't quite falling together.
Oh wow.  I wrote The Right Approach in 2011, long before Undertale was ever a thing.
So I rented Wreck-it Ralph and The LEGO Movie recently.  This afternoon I finally set aside some time to watch the latter.  I almost gave up on it at first, but somehow managed to watch it to the end.  (I watched the former on a prior occasion, when the Internet was out.)

Maybe it's because I had the big reveal spoiled for me on a prior occasion (see here for details on that), but it didn't really grip me as well as Wreck-it Ralph did.  And what does it say about your intended moral when the characters in-story acknowledge that it sounds like something off a cheesy poster?

Wolfen Down froze as he spotted something out of the corner of his eye.  A flash of gray and orange, the colors familiar.  Slowly, he turned his head to look.

The sight was as familiar to him as he dreaded it would be.  A gray wolf similar to himself, dressed in orange and wearing a golden gauntlet on his left hand-- not his right, his left.

"Scar," Wolfen hissed.

The other wolf grinned maliciously.  "Why, hello there, my prime."

Wolfen kept his guard up.  Although Scar didn't seem to be attacking right away, which was a little odd for him, the prime wolf wasn't about to take any chances.

"It wasn't long ago that your lover and mine had their latest clash," Scar continued.  "Don't you think it's about time you and I went for another round as well?"

"...I don't want to fight you, Scar."

"Why resist?  It's our destiny, my other half.  We're fated to clash again and again until one of us silences the other for good."

"..."

"You can't fight fate, Wolfen.  All you can do is fight me.  En garde, prime."

Both wolves drew closer to one another in a seemingly choreographed manner.  Wolfen wasn't about to let his anti get the first hit in, and shot forth with his Infinity Gauntlet-clad fist.

SMASH!

When Wolfen's vision cleared, he was staring at a frame that had contained a full-length mirror until a few seconds ago.  He was in the hallway of his own house.  He breathed heavily, his own mental state preventing him from drawing back his hand or moving from his spot.

"WOLFEN!  WHAT HAPPENED?"

Hisspan rushed into the room, slowing to a stop as she took in the scene.  Shards of mirror stayed behind in the perimeter of the mirror frame, and even more shards littered the floor below.  Even the wall behind the mirror was damaged.

"Wolfen, are you all right?  Did you..."

"..."

"...Wolfen?"

"...I need to lie down."

Hisspan let Wolfen leave, stopping him only to pick a few mirror shards from his person.  Then she fetched a broom and dustpan and began to clean up the mess.

He's been a nervous wreck ever since he heard about my last encounter with Vex.  I wonder what's gotten into him...

As she thought this, Hisspan raised her head, and happened to lock eyes with her reflection in the undamaged lower half of the mirror.  For no reason she was sure of at the time, she couldn't help but imagine her reflection moving and speaking on its own.

"What are you ssso ssscared of, my prey?  Don't you underssstand it'sss our dessstiny to fight each other?"
Fated Encounter -Trade-
For the first time in too long, lizardman22 and I engaged in an art trade.  This one's a blind trade with theme prompts, and his prompt was "destiny".  Not exactly a word that lends itself to a lot of interpretations, but I made it work.

This piece is disappointingly short compared to most of my work, but oh well-- I've seen shorter.

Just want to say thanks for reading and commenting on Universe's End up to now! The two page epilogue will be posted by mj probably next week. After that I plan to put up a journal asking for reviews on the story as a whole.
Once again, I am honored for you taking the time to comment on my story!

To answer your question, Interface. Your generalized work attracts anyone who finds it interesting. If you narrowed your interests into a few things, you'd only attract anyone with a shared interest in that subject.

For example, if you just wrote stories based around the Legend of Zelda games, you'd attract fans of those games. The same goes for any franchise regardless of whether it's popular or obscure. Given your preference to work in familiar and unfamiliar territories, the audience you tend to draw in reflects this.
