Here. This video. Utterly brilliant. Yes, I know he is an atheist, and I don't support that. But, he isn't like the militant atheists or those who want to take away religious freedom. Carl Benjamin completely destroys political correctness beyond repair.

Personal Quote: The unexamined life is not worth living

Update on requests, art trades, commissions, etc:

I may be starting a new part-time job soon, one that has enough hours to be called half-time (20 or so a week), on top of my current position. As such, my output here will be slowed.

I have enough time atm for two more requests or commissions. I am already working on one for a friend here.

1. :icondraconic13: Request: Another Short Story. Working on it.

2. :iconfroexd: Request: A planet picture. Working on it.

3.

:iconpointcommissionsopen: :icongiftsask: :icontradesask: :iconcollabsask: :iconrequestsask:

* New information on commissions will be forthcoming soon enough, including paypal commissions. Point commissions will still be an option too, but only for some things *

If you are interested in a picture, contact me and we can work something out on a case-by-case basis. I'm not sure how much time I will have for commissioned pictures, picture requests, or collaborations. I intend to do some of those, however.

I also do writing commissions. If you want me to write a story, a piece done involving your OCs, or something else, please message me. I only accept point commissions, and at a reasonable rate of 100 points for 1000 words, with a 100 point minimum purchase. That means if you want 1000 words, it is 100 points, and if you want 2000 words, it is 200 points. If you want 3000 words, that is 300 points, and 4000 words, 400 points, and so on. These are point commissions only, so no cash is accepted or used, save to purchase the points yourself from DA first. This is a slight price change from an earlier journal, but it is still very reasonable.

Please make sure to tell me a bit about what you want me to write, the names of any characters you want to see, and please answer any questions I may have regarding the setting and characters, to ensure the final product is what you want. I don't do anime, manga, "hetalia", or anything adult rated. I reserve the right to politely decline any commission, if I have reason to believe it does not fit standards or has some other issues.

I can do science fiction as well as fantasy, or even non-fiction genres if you desire. Just make sure to send the points and I will have the piece done in a few days or in the case of longer pieces, a week or more. As a rule of thumb, I have enough time to write 1,000 to 1,500 words a day for commissions, depending on the subject matter. For exceptionally long pieces (100,000 + words), please send me a note and we will work out a point rate and time frame on a case-by-case basis.

For multiple-chapter works, I am open to negotiating a different price, Please ask if you have any questions. More information will be posted as it becomes available, including the possibility of discounts.

If you are interested, comment below or send me a note.

Anyone who watches me (and is on good terms with me) gets a free writing of up to 5000 words. Not once a year or a month, just one free writing ever. As before, I reserve the right to politely decline anything not in good taste. I also recently corrected an error in the pricing chart, in case there was any confusion.

I am the very model of a social justice warrior
I want to ban free speech from each and every college corridor
I know I'm a progressive, and I think that I'm above reproach
And on the rights of others I've no shame at all when I encroach;
I'm very well acquainted too with all matters grammatical
I understand which words are fine and which are problematical,
About the gender theories I'm teeming with a lot of lies ---
With innacurate claims about the behavior of college guys.  

I'm very good at victimhood and blaming the establishment,
I know how to protest to bring about a change in management;
In short, I want to ban free speech in every college corridor
I am the very model of a social justice warrior!

I know our made-up history, Anita's and Brianna Wu's,
I'm always full of nonsense, particularly that of Arthur Chu's,
I quote in many soundbytes all the crimes of the patriarchate,
Especially those which have something to do with that GamerGate.
I can tell easily mansplaining from privilege checks and fat shaming,
I know how to paint someone as quite guilty of victim blaming,
Then I can say that we should ban all offensive comedians,
And if we do not get our way, we'll practice disobedience.

Then I can tell you how and why all disagreements trigger me,
And how to build a safer space where differences I'll never see;
In short, I want to ban free speech in every college corridor
I am the very model of a social justice warrior!

In fact, when I know what is meant by "white washing" and "bigotry",
When I claim that all men are truly guilty of misogyny,
When such affairs as Mizzou rage and at Yale University,
And when I get enraged at the lack of "proper diversity",
When I have learned what progress has been made to push the narrative
That we are disadvantaged, absolutely and comparative.
In short, when I will find a way to declare that I'm victimized,
You'll never find a figure on the internet that's more despised!

For my lack of any knowledge, with my logic quite contortionate,
Has given me intellectual power disporportionate;
But still, I want to ban free speech in every college corridor
I am the very model of a social justice warrior!
Model of a Social Justice Warrior
You'd be surprised at how hard it is to find a good music-only version of "modern major general." And yes, parody is protected speech in the US, so don't complain, whoever you are. And given how DA is, I'll probably need to edit it so that the lines look good

Grand Central Terminal Outside by Aristodes
Grand Central Terminal Outside
And here is the outside of the Terminal, with the Metlife Building in the background (formerly the PanAm building.) Fun fact, in the Avengers movies, the Metlife building is more or less turned into Stark Tower, which is later remodeled into Avengers Tower. And in Age of Ultron, the Roman Gods on the top (such as Mercury) are replaced with statues of firefighters and other first responders to an emergency.

Grand Central Terminal Inside. by Aristodes
Grand Central Terminal Inside.
New York City's largest train station, in terms of volume. Arguably, the largest in the world. It came out a bit blurry, but I believe that the rest of the picture's qualities make up for it.

Nervous Alex by Aristodes
Nervous Alex
Here's :icondraconic13:'s character, Alex Brimstone. We have a scene in a story which I am working on for him, which has taken me forever to get even partially done. To compensate, I made this as a gift for him. Alex is up early doing some exercises, but Lily (his sort-of girlfriend) has taken notice, much to his embarrassment. At least he kept his pants on, or he'd be so embarrassed that his hair might catch fire. Maybe even literally. :)

Alex is a member of the spectrum knights and is a young adult, though not too much over 18 (only a few years?). Draconic13 would have all of the details. Lily is about the same age.

EDIT: Updated Alex. Made him a bit thinner, not as strong, and darkened his hair. I also edited his arms and collar bone. I didn't bother adding nipples, even if those are accurate for a mammal. Yeah, dracon males don't have those, but humans do, mostly hairless apes that we are.

No, I haven't. Despite living in New York all my life. I don't get to the outer boroughs much.
