Advanced Iron Man#3:European Vacation... of Death!
Narration box: Tony Stark was a genius engineer who cured his own cancer using nanotechnology to rewrite his personal genetic code, altering his cell structure to become the fusion of man and machine known as Iron Man. That's just the tip of the iceberg though. Things for Tony have gone out of the frying pan and into the fire as he finds his company, Stark Industries, being made the target of a number of industrial sabotage attacks. Recently, at the behest of a mysterious yet familiar benefactor who Tony discovered to be his lost older brother Arno, Tony as Iron Man must investigate a series of attacks on the Italian "smart sportscar" factories of Arno and Cecilia Fabbrica that have been committed by the man turned technological monster calling itself MODOK.
It is night time. The crime scene has been cordoned off by la polizia. Tony transforms into Iron Man in an alleyway and steps over the caution tape to examin
Advanced Dr. Strange No. 2:Advanced Dr. Strange No. 2: The Coming of Kaluu.
[Narration box]: Reality as most of us know it is not the full and true reality. It is but a sliver of full on actual reality. What sets our reality true and distinct for us does not necessarily all hold true in other such planes [Show Shuma-Gorath's eye squinting]. Yet, these different realities do interact in ways that are complex. They also influence one another in ways that for the most part it would be better not to trouble yourself with. Those who did trouble themselves with it were regarded by a fearful outside as shamans, wizards, witches and sorcerers. Anytime you had whole societies that embraced this occult knowledge their own disaster usually loomed... entire "lost civilizations" have been born and died several times over yet have faded to obscurity from most history books. All that remains of those forgotten ages are a few intensely troubling occult artifacts. Talismans and o

Outside the private practice (unit A) on 177 Bleecker Street in Greenwich Village an antique social calling card was picked up from the mailbox by a certain Dr. Strange.
Mordo,... the name struck a bell with Dr. Stephen Strange. Narration box: Years ago, before the old professor died, no wait, was yes, murdered by the very same name that came to mind right now. Before... back when Stephen was a medical student they had been academic rivals. He was getting licensed at a Miskatonic University extension program in Nevada. They both were. Back then though the classmate's name was Karl. Stephen: If Baron Mordo or to be more accurate someone for him had mailed this note to the Sanctum Sanctorum then I doubt it could portend anything good.
Dr. Strange: "Wong, see that my remaining appointments from today's schedule are cleared and lock the doors. It would appear my old nemesis is again up to something."
Advanced Dr. Strange Premise:Stephen Strange is a moderately successful private practice psychotherapist, albeit one who for the past few years has been plagued by recurrent dreams. At first he tried to equate it to confabulation but they have gone on for so long that now he is starting to feel that perhaps they have a meaning. These dreams it turns out are actually calling him to accept the mantle of Earth's Sorcerer Supreme.
A somewhat complex man, Stephen also has to put behind him his past in Las Vegas. As a young man to pay his way through medical school (one which is a Miskatonic University extension program in Nevada) Stephen worked as a stage magician in the shady performer Quentin Beck (The man who would later be known as Mysterio)'s magic show. Later Beck was caught using crime to fund his act. The resort he and Strange performed at was owned by the Maggia, so to distance themselves from him, they fired Quentin. Disgraced from the entertainment community and no longer able t

Narration Box that is shown to be J.A.R.V.I.S.: "Accessing internal memory logs. Tony Stark was a troubled engineer with drug addictions who found his health failing due to cancer... he resorted to performing an experimental procedure on himself in order to fix that but found himself transformed into the costumed hero people have taken to calling Iron Man. Lately things have been tumultuous for Stark Industries. In the midst of sabotage and espionage from Hammer and a high pressure deal with the Fujikawa group, stock prices have been both up and down quite a bit." Tony: "J.A.R.V.I.S.?! Are you podcasting that? What did I tell you about secret identities?" J.A.R.V.I.S.: "No sir! I'm sorry sir. Very good sir."
Stane over the P.A.: "Tony, come to my office, I've got something to show you."
Tony: "You did what!?!"
Stane: "Relax kid, I just took your Iron Man armor concept and diversified things a bit. Look, if you pare it down a little, re

Narration box: Howard Stark was a brilliant high tech manufacturing startup entrepreneur during the ColdWar. He helped the US retain an edge against the Soviets during his time as the acting CEO of Stark Industries, a multi-megacorporation that made everything from medical devices to airplanes and computers. At least for a time. Then something happened to him and nobody heard from him again...
[cut to a plane crashing in some remote isolated tundra location].
He did leave behind a son though, a brilliant yet troubled young man named Anthony "Tony" Edward Stark. [Show young Tony going to the Principal's office and having a plastic bag of pills being confiscated]. "C'mon, Teach! I need those to think better!" "Not without a prescription you don't! If it wasn't for your family's contributions to this school I'd have had you expelled ages ago. You're suspended Stark!" We see Tony emptying his locker and notice he has very Iron Man looking doodles in his notebook a
Heroes AND Villains Nobler Than Bart SimpsonBart Simpson is one of the worst fictional characters ever created in the history of mankind. He has no morals or ethical constraints whatsoever. Loyalty is a foreign concept to Bart because he is incapable of showing any towards any person or cause. Bart causes mayhem and destruction just for the sake of causing mayhem and destruction, and he does so without hesitation, restraint, mercy or guilt. Sure, you may be able to name a few nice things Bart Simpson has done, but those nice things are superficial, and when you combine them with all the terrible, rotten, evil things he has done, trying to find the nice things is like trying to find a sparkling necklace in a lake of pure oil 100 feet deep with the surface area as big as the state of Texas. And worst of all-Bart Simpson is a character that we're supposed to like. If you've recently turned against because you have recently read an article
Mykan knows what he REALLY wantsThe Dakari-King never learns, does he? Or does he ever want to learn?
MYKAN KNOWS WHAT HE WANTS
Yeah, and I'm a pro-algebra zealot.
It has now come to my attention that a lot of people are trying to get me to stop making fics and vids, as they want me to “Improve” my life… to their standards.
Where the hell did they say anything about that last part, your absent-mindedness?
“A matter of what they want” but what about me. What is it that I want? How do I want things in my life to be?
Being such an attention whore shouldn't be one of those things you would want. Trust me, dA and other websites (and real life, to an extent) has enough attention whores as is. One less would leave the rest of us a little happier.
You see there’s a difference from “Improving your life” and “Being satisfied with it”
And how does being miserable all the time count as "being satisfied" with life?
Deep Cliff #42 Is Teen Titans Dead?
Question: Is Teen Titans Dead?
Hello and welcome to yet another Deep Cliff, where I listen to your questions and bring you in depth answers. Today, I come to ask a very serious question…is Teen Titans dead? I want to make it very clear that the Teen Titans are my heroes! I loved their comic books, their tv show, EVERYTHING about them. I was a huge fan of the Titans. I was crushed when their show finally ended, but I was left with all the good memories that they brought me. However, I wasn’t the only one disappointed in their departure, and in response Cartoon Network attempted to appease the fans with something called “The New Teen Titans” which were two minute shorts of the Titans in their everyday lives. It wasn’t anything special, but it was harmless.
However…that all changed with the emergence of an even greater evil: “Teen Titans GO!” In 2013, Teen Titans was rebooted into “Teen Titans GO!” What were the changes? W
FFM Links - July 27, 2014Welcome to Flash Fiction Month, Day 27.
There is an astonishing preponderance of misinformation, fuelled largely by the popular scientific press, concerning the life cycle, mating habits and diet of the Cnidarian Hydrus Giganticus [Common Freshwater Hydra]. For example, it is a little-known fact that, in addition to the widely-cited diet of lost souls (particularly those culled during the annual ritus Fulmen, such that the number of participants in the rite noticably decrease during the course thereof), the Hydra also requires regularly a certain quantity of ethyl alcohol, usually served with lime and a sprig of mint, for the proper functioning of its metabolism.
This latter fact explains, in part, the reason for its tardiness in posting today's prompts and, unquestionably, the source of this multitudinous hangover.
Apologies. Wie're very, very sorry.
Flash away; there's no challenge today.
Erotic Fiction**This is not an erotic story or poem. Which may disappoint some people, lol. Who have already stopped reading. Hehe.
I have been holding back posting a journal or standard deviation rant about this topic for a while, but I feel like now is as good a time as any. Life is short you know, and I'm all rejuvinatey from vacation.
Erotic fiction. What positives can we say about it that won't make us seem like total perverts? Umm...sex is in the Bible!! And the Bible is a book!! There is an entire "book" about it in there. Check it out for yourself if you don't believe me.
deviantArt is purported to be a website where artists can develop their craft, receive critical feedback, get more exposure, ahem, for their art, make connections for marketing, sales and perhaps future publishing. But there is a sad, odd censorship happening here that is completely outside of what is happening in the mainstream fiction world. All I need to say is 50 Shades of Grey^, which dear reader, be
The king's 'derivative' stuffAnd just when you-know-who couldn't get anymore...well, you know.
HOW MYKAN MAKES DERIVATE
First, I’ll explain…
I cannot draw things by hand very well.
Why couldn't you have just practiced every day when you were younger?
-It would take far too long
-It would not look very good (Even with practice, and would still take too long)
No wonder you don't put much effort into things.
-Nobody wants to see stuff like that
-Even if I did draw them, they would still probably look no different
At least they wouldn't resemble altered stuff.
So to save time, I do what most people do, and edit over screen shots taken from the show itself, or enlist the help of other people and their artworks (With first asking for permission, and crediting them if they say “Yes”)
Did you enlist such help from people at all?
However, screenshots from actual TV shows, you cannot ask for permission

As A WriterAs A Writer.
There's simple things you need to remember...
Motivation is hard to come by in these dreary times, you'll need as often as you can.
An Idea to stick to and to build and develop, make this idea something big and make it ORIGINAL.
When you meet another writer...
Make sure not antagonise him, make sure to appreaciate his work no matter how shit it is.
DON'T ask for his opinion or he'll automatically assume he fucking hates it no matter what and If he likes it,
He'll be envious and fucking hate it even more.
Think you are the best writer but also keep in mind; YOU'RE NOT.
Unless you want to find the best writer, slip on a pair of fucking boxing gloves and settle the shit down right fucking now.
Keep all this in mind when you write.
Also, Music can spark influence and can get the creative juices flowing and pumping through the veins...
Make sure you have music you like and a good selection.
A Right state of mind is also a good thing, make sure you're enjoying writing your work.
FFM Links - July 23, 2014Welcome to Flash Fiction Month, day 23.
Well done with yesterday's challenge. It's good to see you all collaborating and getting to know each other and stuff. It was nice to see a few extra faces in the chatrooms too, even if they all seemed to leave when I arrived. I'm still not sure about this new deodorant.
There's no challenge today. Prompts are below. The prompt bank could use some love if you've got a minute to think of a couple.
Flash Fiction Month is about writing one piece of very short "flash" fiction (55-1000 words) every day of July.
Paste a link to your flash fiction piece for July 23rd in the comments below.
Every day, there will be a new deviation where you can post a link to your piece of flash fiction for the day.
Everyone loves comments and encouragement, so do make an effort to encourage your fellow Flash Fiction Month participants. Let's help each other to have the best possible experience. A quick com
Volpi.You will find that the story you tell
is very rarely your own. In Lucca,
even the smallest pebbles
breathe in the warm sunlight.
Knotted stones and cobbled roads
beat out a paper-dry heartbeat heat
my city breathes in and out,
inhales sparrow air.
It's writing a story.
You are the pen.
You will find that in Lucca
the daisy chains forge fire
in side streets and back alleys.
Teenagers intertwine. Tell me,
odd flower, are you still closed?
Here we are colored wax;
the heat of the city melts us.
We run into each other, rhapsody
of pigments. Operas are our specialties.
Open up; feel the reds.
If not, try and see them. There is a place
of deep knife marks, a street
long as midnight
you may learn something there.
Valentina's voice glimmers like red wine.
You may enjoy intoxications. Still,
know alcohol has no story
and will swallow your own.
Find the sign with the wolf on it.
You'll know the place. Epiphanies ring true as church-bells.
Lucca still guides the wanderers
to well sp
