OC Adoption ListLike I said here I'm going to be leaving dA at some point, which means I'll need to give away my characters. This is the reservation list. However, it's not first come first served. I want my characters going to the best choices, the persons who will make the most out of them and hopefully do more with them than I ever did. This means that if someone has already reserved a character then another can take the previous person's place. It's just a matter of convincing me that said person is the best choice. Whoever gets the characters will also have to upload all the deviations I've made pertaining to them. Additionally, if for any reason at all, I ended up keeping this account up, and not just not deactivated, whoever gets these characters still keeps them, and I'll have to make new ones.
Remember, just because you ask for a character, that doesn't mean you'll automatically get them. I have to be sure that you are

What do I post: TG/TF stories, mostly. There are some drawings and photos.
Do I run any more blogs: I have Tumblr. I tried using it as advertising for this account but that doesn't seem to have been working.
Why did I choose this username: There's already a "Yuma" account so I couldn't use that name. I went with TheRealYuma because of my main OC is, or rather was, Yuma Thundermoon.
I tag no one. I can't really think of anyone to tag. Any volunteers?
Pokemon Sun and Moon Review - spoilers inboundI was honestly so disappointed with ORAS that I was borderline ditching my Pokemon fandom. Seriously, that game is the best and worst of both worlds. Sun & Moon have convinced me to stay. Game Freak did step up their game with this entry. Unfortunately, there's still a good amount of shortcomings and missed opportunities.
Gameplay has actually improved since Gen VI. Battle mechanics are much the same, but the Z-moves are a nice addition and the dances that precede them are quite entertaining to witness. They also serve as these games' Gym Badges, so instead of a TM you get a super-powerful move, depending on which move is turned into the Z-move. Z-moves not only work for damaging attacks but they also power up moves such as Stealth Rock and Hypnosis, boosting the user's stats which is a great alternative. Make no mistake though, you can get Mega Stones after becoming the Champion. Totem battles are a fun addition and are actually challenging. Plus, the concept of a Pokémon gua
Snow Queen Adaptations Rankings (Spoilers)Yes, I've been on a Snow Queen adaptation binge.
1. Yuki no Joō -
This is by far my favorite adaptation of the Hans Christian Andersen story. I dare say that of all of them, it contains his spirit the most. There are a number of episodes which can get downright depressing, yet right before the third act's closing, it all changes and you're left with a satisfied and happy feeling. It actually takes time to flesh out Gerda, Kay, and their families. Interestingly enough, despite being a Japanese anime, the art and character designs are meant to look more European. There was a period researcher to help keep things accurate and there is actual Danish writing in the anime. Because Gerda's journey wasn't nearly as detailed as this, the team went and adapted other Hans Christian Andersen tales (ex. The Red Shoes) into this to help stretch it out, creating a shared universe of a sort, but it actually works.
Yuki no Joō is by far one of the most beautiful anime I have ever seen a
Moana - Good but still a letdownMild spoilers ahead.
The production design is great. Motunui and the Mother Island are beautiful, the Kakamora fortresses are stunning, and Lalotai is as spectacular as it is deadly. The cast is a great one, with one exception, and Dwayne Johnson steals the show. Of another particular note are Temuera Morrison as Chief Tui and Rachel House as Gramma Tala. The songs are the most beautiful I've heard from a Disney musical since Princess and The Frog, and the score is great. Personally though, I would have gone with John Powell as the composer. The animation is the best computer animation that Disney's done thus far, and the 2D animation is no slouch either. However, this blend is nowhere near as impressive as Treasure Planet's blend. Treasure Planet still remains the directors' magnum opus. Moana is sadly a big step down from it.
As far as character designs go, I'm not seeing any reason they had to go with CGI over hand-drawn animation. Moana is thankfully not so generic in looks. T
New Laptop + Other NewsHere's the obligatory "I got a new laptop" news. Sadly, this won't be increasing my productivity one bit. Wish I could just use funds acquired on Patreon to pay that bill, heh.
In other news, it seems as though the time I'll have to leave deviantART for good is nearing sooner than I expected. Kind of a pity because I doubt I'll be able to unload, so to speak, all the ideas I've come up with by then. I'm going to need more free time for writing scripts and this site is one distraction I can give up. I expect that by the end of next year I'll be gone from here. However, I will be giving my characters out to whoever will accept them there. Here's how that will work: I already have someone in mind to give the main versions of Yuma, Lozen, Yuna, Nilche Lizhen, etc., but the alternate reality versions of my characters will go up for adoption. So here's hoping that I can at least get this thing above done before that time is here, Seriously, I have similar journals to this
Free Sketches Super Happy Time rules:
the first ten people to comment on this journal with a reference of the character they want will get a sketch from me
but in return they will have to offer to do ten free sketches in a journal too! (and put me first on the list)

Also, I do hope you can all vote for which version of the new Pokemon game I should get, along with which starter, here:
Please Listen.I just got an email from a concerned parent. Her daughter has an account on DA, and apparently she copies and traces my drawings. I looked on her profile and confirmed that, yes, she did trace and gave minimal (sometimes no) credit. The reason her mother messaged me was because a few people were apparently sending her harsh messages asking her to give credit. She even got a few death threats.
Listen...I'm going to say this all again because I guess it needs reiterating: When it comes to my art, I do not mind young artists copying or tracing my drawings in hopes of developing their skills, or because they are still learning the way of things. If you see someone posting a traced or heavily referenced drawing that does not mention the original picture, please DO NOT immediately jump to aggression. If something like this (art theft/style theft) really gets on your nerves, then I understand why you might be angry upon seeing it, but you must find the maturity to take a breath, and

The Simple Character Creator FormulaThis is a copy-paste (with some additions) from my Tumblr blog (http://spaztique.tumblr.com/), but it must be reposted.
Twilight of the Hakurei, the club-wide comic tennis/RP (http://walfasstationwagon.deviantart.com/gallery/41877816), is turning out just as I suspected: AMAZINGLY. However, one thing that really astounds me is how well the character system is working. If you're not familiar, it's simply this:
1. Pick the character's biggest strength that affects other people. Note the key phrase, "that affects other people." For example, "He's really good at cooking," is not a strength: that's just a regular skill that only applies to one area of life and doesn't really affect others. However, "He's a fast learner," or, "He pays attention to detail," or, "He's very generous," is a strength because it applies to more than just cooking, but any other skill and especially relationships.
2. Pick the character's biggest weakness that affects other people. Once ag
