    Here's a cutesy Hareka from Star Blush Girls! I'll probably eventually make one for all members of SBG. Since Hareka is my favorite, I started with her ⭐ Matt/Cwilk

    Alright, I will post the one that I have fully finished first, in chapters. I will post one chapter now and will attempt to post them one every day/ couple of hours. This one is called Watching. Prologue A scream echoed through the abandoned neighborhood as Akira Saito, gripped with fear, ran into the woods with her last bit of strength. Something followed closely in the shadows, watching. Waiting. Chapter One “I know, I know,” Akira mumbled, rolling her eyes. Ayumi Ito’s eyes danced with silent laughter as Mr. Funai scolded Akira. “You have to use 私は, not 私に. What you said was ‘Me like to ride my bike.’ Does that make sense, Akira?” “Yes, Mr. Funai,” Akira said, her eyes on the ground. “My mom’s gonna kill me for failing!” groaned Akira after the class had ended and they were walking out of the building. “As your best (and only) friend, I’m telling you to stop freaking out.” Ayumi laughed, kicking her in the shin. Akira yelped in pain as she jumped around, trying to grab her shin. “What was that for?” Akira asked sulkily, rubbing her shin. Ayumi shrugged smugly. “C’mon, let’s head back to your house today.” Ayumi pleaded. “No. I told you, my mom’s going to kill me. Let’s go to your house.” Akira grabbed her by the sleeve and started dragging her towards the street. “Akira, you jerk,” Ayumi mumbled, exasperated. Well, I don’t think you’d want to come to my house if you knew how my mom gets when she’s angry, Akira thought. “Dad, I’m home,” Ayumi called as she opened the door. He rushed out of a nearby room, looking like he just woke up. “Oh, hello Akira.” Mr. Ito laughed. “Hello, Mr. Ito,” she answered. “Dad, we have to work on our Japanese project so we’ll be upstairs.” Mr. Ito nodded and retreated back into his office. “C’mon Akira!” Ayumi giggled as she raced upstairs. “Last one there is a rotten egg!” “No fair!” Akira yelled as she sprinted after Ayumi. Once Ayumi reached the top of the stairs, she paused, gasping for breath. I can take this chance to beat her, Akira thought, pushing herself ever quicker. As she passed Ayumi, her head pounded. Once. Twice. She fell to the ground in pain, pressing her hands against her temples with all her strength. “Akira?” she heard as her vision dotted over, her head going fuzzy. “Akira!” she heard again as she regained consciousness. Akira opened her eyes, blinking at the bright light. “Akira, are you okay?” Mr. Ita asked, feeling her forehead. She didn’t speak, only mumble, but what she mumbled was something only heard in nightmares. “It… It’s after me. It’s after me.” Akira began breathing rapidly. “Akira, calm down. You just fainted. Nothing’s after you.” Ayumi whispered. “I want to go home,” she spoke frantically. Ayumi grabbed her arm and pulled her into a standing position. “Can you stand?” Akira nodded. Ayumi walked Akira out of the house. “I swear, I saw something when I passed out. Why don’t you believe me?” “Akira, that’s crazy. We were the only ones even there.” Akira sighed. “I guess that makes sense. I must’ve dreamt it.” The next chapter will be out soon (I have four). (Ignore the problem with the font, it is being stubborn.)

    Oh yeah, I'm definitely familiar with feeling vulnerable when I have to express my true emotions to someone. I won't pretend like I know anything for sure, but from what I've experienced, you probably won't come to a philosophical epiphany that will turn your life around - that's what I was after while I was at a low point of my life. So don't feel bad about not being able to fix your problems - it's pretty much impossible to with any sort of ease. Sometimes your day can just be turned around by eating, sleeping or just waiting for a better mood. Here's a treat of a video, it personally helped me. Didn't turn my life around, but definitely made me feel more relaxed about it all Also, I'm not sure if you're the same Strawberry that asked for advice on starting with art, so here's my suggestion for that: just start doing it and don't worry about anything. Compare yourself to only yourself in the past, and don't feel any obligation to make art in a certain way - your enjoyment out of doing it should be your no. 1 priority. Personally, I've gone through a lot as an artist, and there are a lot of crushing aspects about it. You might procrastinate and feel awful about that, you might feel uncontrollable envy because of other artists and be angry at how you can't express your world of thoughts that well, and a multitude of other things. In the end, if you really have an urge to create art, you'll push through. And if you don't, that's OK too (maybe better even). Time will grant you moments you don't feel so down, and those moments are worth the world. Sincerely, Matt/Cwilk

    @Listorii think it's awesome to think about things that way and I hope that you keep that mentality for a long time. Maybe you could even write your own stories @Chickenhayl not really where I thought his would go, but I've never been good at looking into the future. I'm going to start with a joke at your expense, but have you tried cooking? Cause you're a pan. I don't know your parents so the specifics aren't there to me, but make sure you know what you are telling them. And that you know what you are telling yourself. Because with this statement right here you are identifying yourself with a single attribute, which I highly advise against. If you wanted more specific I recommend a private message, not because I don't want you to share here. I think you should, but the nuances of these talks can be difficult to convey in a forum.

    @Chickenhayl Luckily not where I live, but it's been SO incredibly stormy - especially yesterday - that we lost one of our chair cushions on our balcony to the storm. It's just... gone. We have no idea where it is now as we couldn't find it again but we hope that it found a new family who appreciates it just as much as we did. 💔

    Kenny, we are so sorry that we can only offer virtual hugs instead of real ones. However, note that the care for you is real and independent of distance. Cry if you need to, because even you needed help. You are an amazing person whose abilities and dream I respected very much, but you are still human with flaws that'll be our pleasure to help you with. You are our friend, and we'd like to see you happy always but if you are sad, know that more than one shoulders will be offered to you. We all are trying to better ourselves, feeling vunerable or lacking isn't bad. We'll grow up together ok? Look into the mirror and recognize yourself, yep that image is you and we love you for it. Psssst did you know? I hear Kendra M Wokal is a kind and gentle person.

    I definitely don't think you wanting to help along and not needing to reach to new heights is wrong. In fact, people who don't need to revolutionize the world, don't reach for fame, and are just good people all-around are probably the people I respect most in the world. And there aren't any rules in science that tell you to aim for new discoveries. Now, while prioritizing others' emotions is generally really sweet and the sign of a good friend, I don't want you to ignore your own feelings. You are living through yourself, after all. In any case, if helping others climb their mountains genuinely makes you happy, do that, but detect when not prioritizing your feelings is making you feel worse.

    And cutting back in on the anoime discussion, I have a lot of favorites. I will list them, so forewarning... I've watched way too many that I love. The Disastrous Life of Saiki K, Ouran High Host Club, The Lost Song, The Devil is a Part-Timer, SAO, GGO, Little Witch Academia, The Seven Deadly Sins, Attack on Titan, Your Lie in April, Death Note, Hi-Score Girl, Kakegurui (still unsure if I liked this or was weirded out. It's going on the list anyways!), Vampire Knight, Fate Stay Night, Violet Evergarden, Durarara, Back Street Girls, Siruis the Jaeger, Sword Gai, and (what I'm currently watching) Hunter X Hunter. Yes, I do have a problem.

    Originally, this topic was about another art but I realized that I don't really care about that art anymore and want to continue doing the art that I can do better than any other type of art (story writing, character designing, and most of all, music... this will be focusing on music). My instrumentals and music is fine. I'm happy with it and think that it's "good enough." Of course, I don't think it's the best thing ever, but I know that I'm growing and learning more every time, which I'm satisfied with. However, one thing I can't nail down is my singing. My voice can be somewhat smooth, kinda rough and rigid when I want it to be (I can't do screaming [sadly]). People say it's deep, but I don't know what they mean when they say "deep." Does it mean... like... Christmas-song deep or just like "normally" deep? Anyways, I know how to mix vocals and make it "blend in" to the music... but my vocals just don't quite fit my instrumentals. Or at least, that's what I think. I'm not sure, maybe it's just me being overly harsh when it comes to criticizing my own vocals. For me, however, it just feels weird and not right like my vocals just don't really fit the genre or my instrumentals. I don't know what genre is good for my kind of voice, I don't know if my voice is good, I don't know if it fits with my instrumentals, I don't know how deep it is... I just don't know. I had one friend tell me my singing was okay, but that could've just been him trying not to destroy my fragile little heart. Anyways, I'm fine with my instrumentals and how I'm improving with them, but I just don't understand when my singing is "good" and when it's "bad" and always feel that it's "bad" or "not good enough."

    Your Lie In April is amazing, but it made me cry for a long while. (I had school the next day and I was watching it when I should've been sleeping. Bad ideas with Chicken) I'm currently watching Hunter X Hunter~ it's weird but good. I started it yesterday and I'm already on the sixth episode. (Also bad ideas with Chicken.)

    There's like one train around where I live, but I never use it just cause I don't need or have the time to, I'd like to go on it more than, like, twice a year, but hey, what can you do :/. Cutting in on the anime discussion, though, maybe y'all could tell me some of your favorites. Though I love fictional worlds, you'd be surprised by how little books I read and anime I watch. I've seen Your Lie in April, Your Name, Gamers! and a couple other ones

    Sparkling Yellow Traffic Lights Before we sail to dreams and drive to dusk, we just might need a little stardust. So I'll introduce you to a certain place: an orange room, that's lost in time, and lost in space. It's faraway, but it's a cozy room. While under clean sheets, the month of June revealed through the orange drapes. Facing the bed, a closet, shut with tape. A desk on your right, with modest design; caught by your nose, a scent of pine. Through a newly-formed sliver in the drapes, onto the closet door, a ray escapes. The monochromatic spark of light this beam projected is a pretty sight. This created flicker dances around to the rhythm of outside traffic lights. As cars pass by, the light jumps up. I view this spark with luck in my eyes; to catch this sight well-unconveyed by rhymes. This orange room and surrounding lights make me humble to get to spend the night. I'll see you tomorrow morning, I hope. If not with my eye, then with a telescope. Imagine yellow street lights across the globe, beating a pulse, connecting our own still monochromatic and beautiful world. Imagine a single traffic light, taking shelter from the rain drops that intermix. Falling xylophone-esque ticks. As a drop passes through a crevice, the imaginary street lights reminisce of a time they were all linked together In that orange room that's secluded, forever. Good night

    This morning started pretty miserably, with me just missing the bus, almost losing my headphones, and the train leaving right in front of me. But while I was on the next train, I could see a rainbow for a few seconds which made my way to work and this morning a bit more bearable. 🌈

    Interesting... There are some things that are childish that should be looked at as immature, but having a sense of wonder is not one of those things. Have you seen Violet Evergarden? It's Chicken and my profile pic, but it's a great anime about the stories that we share, and how we express our emotions through writing.

    @slightlyaboveaveragejoe I am sure I'll keep it for a while, I think it's fun to see the world around you like this. ☀️ Yes, there are always new and interesting stories that come to my mind, or questions noone else would ask. Usually it's seen as very childish though, so I don't share these thoughts very often.

    @slightlyaboveaveragejoe Oh, of course! I have this kind of attitude towards everything, actually. I grew up with "talking" to things and giving them kind of a personality and such. And I've kept the idea of it and still think about the world around me like that (not in a crazy way, more in a "I respect objects and try be resourceful and careful with everything I have" way). I've thought about what this little cushion might experience on its windy journey, too! A brave and fleece-y adventurer that took its chance to go and see the world... how exciting! ⭐

    Eastern Regionals is basically a competition thing in the Eastern states where if you get in you have to practice for two days (with five pieces of music) and then have a concert. It is fun, it just gets painful after a while. Technically, I did win since I got in.

    Well matt, thanks for sharing. I think on a deep level almost all of us really want to be known and loved for who we are at the fullest. And I think that really can express itself when we show ourselves fully through our art or creations. I'm not here to give you advice per se, but more to encourage you to continue to explore who you are. Your art is not insincere, if anything what comes out in our art is actually a deeper expression of the person behind the work. However, it's important to share things as you have right here. To grapple with your thoughts with others, because in these moments we growing and you do become more known to people, it's just on a different level. It's one of the varying aspects that makes up each of us. Keep Sharing, both your art, and your mind! Don't over do it, since you are and introvert after all. Share when you want, be private when you don't. Just don't get trapped doing one and not the other. Love, Joseph Bohan One of the Real Ones.

    My name is Mattias, but you probably can't pronounce it correctly, since I'm from Estonia (which is why I feel more comfortable calling myself Matt). I do mainly pixel art although I really want to branch out into more traditional digital art. Currently caught up with schoolwork

    More Responses Inbound! Though you could have responded to your other post. However, you want to post, just go for it! So, we have two main thoughts here, but in answer to the first. Neither instance would make you crazy. You would simply be human. There is nothing inherently wrong with hanging onto something. Likewise, there is nothing inherently wrong with going along with something. The only times that they are wrong/crazy, would be when you are holding onto something that is bad or that you shouldn't hold onto, or you are playing along with someone who is doing something that isn't right. Apart from those instances. I do not think your actions would be crazy. In regards to both that and the toxicity of the college experience, which I will broaden so that all readers who are or may be going to college can understand, college is a place of learning. What I mean by that is this, you are not fully developed as a person. There are some many thing in college that get solidified, rearranged, or just changed that you probably weren't expecting. Chances are that this is the same for your acquaintance. And given the fact that you've spoken with them multiple times on the issue and they've ignored it, I would say it may be best to leave. On the topic of insanity, that would be doing the same thing over and over expecting a different result. Instead it may be time to leave. That may be what the other person needs to grow. Sometimes we need a friend to come around and talk to us. Other times we need that friend to give us a good swift kick. But we only learn that through our trials. In the end, it will probably be better for you to remove people who are hurting your from your life until you can face them with a better energy. Now in regards to sharing the pain. The answer to your first question is in the first question. Why are you reaching out to share the pain? Because you don't like dealing with it. And truthfully none of use do. I heard a pastor on youtube, his phrase was. No Pain, No Pain. Its very normal to not want pain, and if you are used to having people around you to help, sharing that pain is a normal and good thing. And you have to share the pain for someone to help, and we're glad you shared it with us. And sharing does not proliferate the pain, unless you are not seeking to get better, which I entirely doubt, but could be possible. Therefore when you seek out help, you are not proliferating pain, but minimizing it, and spreading it thin. So that it does not wear on you alone. "Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken." You are not crazy, you are not alone, and you most certainly are not going to let this stop you. Keep being amazing Princess. Don't let the bad ones get you down. For me college was the same way. For the first few year I didn't think there was anyone out there who thought the same way as me, or that there were people out there in real life who actually cared and made that difference that you were talking about. That was the thought process behind the Real Ones. Because we exist, and we're out there, you just haven't met us yet. So rather than "making" friends. Go find your friends. Love, Joseph Bohan One of the Real Ones.

    This post... honestly kinda goes into a much deeper section of Invalidation... It kinda hits home about what BSS stands for and why it means so much to me. But I'll put it into a different section as others responded to my previous post before I was finished. And it would be wrong to place this there after their answers. Culture in college especially can be quite toxic or quite graphic. Or maybe I'm just too different from anyone who's in my "grade". Sexual references, drugs, swearing are very common among my peers especially the not quite mature males and often is something I am exposed to. Being in the science field right now, doesn't exactly help with that either. And no matter how I choose to react to what I'm exposed to, any complainants or requests I have are left forgotten or ignored. One in particular admits ignorance and yet he said that he'd still tell someone who's suffering something invalidating to their face just because it's funny or the way he sees the world. So, what do I do?... Who's crazy? Me when I try to hold on, or maybe when I try to play along? Neither seems right, and always is accompanied by pain. What's crazy? Abandoning acquaintanceship once and for all, or maybe trying to be near them at all? It's hard to feel close to those who don't want to understand... They say to make friends, But I'd ask, what does that even mean? (Referencing pattern to the song "Who's crazy/ My psycho-pharmacologist and I" from the musical Next to Normal.) I'm sorry... I know I don't like dealing with it, so why am I trying to reach out and share the pain? I don't want to share the pain... I just want help, and I don't know how else to explain except by sharing... But when I tried telling someone else who I trusted they asked me why I even shared it since they didn't want to see it, and only proliferated the pain... Yet, that's not all. I know I've said this before, but I deeply feel emotions. And I can feel the pain and the joy, the love and hurt of others as if it was my own. And it's a painful blessing. In college, tough issues have been addressed. This time, it was about cancer, and while our professor told us about a story of his neighbor who had it, I had to run out of the room (literally) to avoid melting down from a tsunami of sadness and pain. I don't get it... You guys talk about how you can control your emotions. But I can't do that! I couldn't help but weep for her... And I tried for a majority part of class to not panic about the subject as a whole and to stay to get the notes and be like everyone else and not cause a rukus. I even had to put in my headphones trying to keep the peace just enough to hold on which is pretty rude to do right? But I couldn't. And I can't. I can't stop these feelings, they are too strong. It doesn't mean I don't atleast try to control my actions but I can't do what you guys do... Am I really that crazy?... Am I so weak and fragile that I cry at what others didn't? Yet, only three people actually cared to see if I was okay. I get that it's not like they should or anything... But If I had left sooner, would anyone have asked at all? Constantly wistfully, Someone comes close to me, asking me, "what's going on?" or blasting right past me, with no sense of compassion or empathy, and honestly? It's uncanny, passively grasping for some kind of tapestry that could tell me, not overwhelm me, for an answer of why they abandon me, while I am frantically panicking while holding a crying smile, waiting patiently, lingering to hope of the day, the way, to say and not be forgot, by those who care about me.

    I think I have many times needed to hear these words, so thank you Cwilk. Alright time for some specific action steps because Cwilk summarized the important points. 1. This is the one that I always tell people and hope that one day we all end up listening to me (myself included). Go to bed/get some rest. Thetime stamp is telling me you posted this at a very late hour. In order to confront your subconscious kindly you need to be rested. Otherwise, you might driftoff to a half dream state where you will confront your subconscious, kind of like Inception. Jokes aside, being rested prepares you to handle difficult things while still maintaining patience. 2. Have you heard the song Bad News? Don't let your perception of people's opinions change you. Because chances are that your perception of their opinion doesn't match what it actually is. For instance, if you need grant money to do research, you need your research to get noticed so that you can keep doing it. So that you can help more people. But from the outside it can look like they are just trying to make money, but their internal drive is to help people the same as you. So shoot for the skies, I'm with you because you are trouble for bad news. It doesn't matter. You don't need a stranger telling you what your score is. Don't let their scores change who you are and what you put in. You know what you have to give and the best you've got. All that to say. It doesn't matter what you were told when you were little, it doesn't matter that I'm telling you the opposite right now. What matters is that you know who you are and that you don't let those thoughts tell you something that's not the truth. Because the truth is that you can change right now. The truth is that you don't have to worry about the mistakes you've made or others have made. The truth is that you are wonderfully loved, beyond anything you've ever deserved or could hope for. I encourage you to listen to the song "Voice of Truth" by Casting Crowns. Because like we all say around here music can change hearts and minds. Surround yourself with positive true messages. And that can help change how you think on a subconscious level. And frankly I'm certain that you are already improving lives. And don't forget that. Good luck out there. You already got this. Love, Joseph Bohan One of the Real Ones

    The song Ok so this is the first time I've ever recorded myself and shared it. So any criticism is happily accepted. I've only been playing ukulele for a few months. And I know my singing isn't the best. Anyways thanks for listening to it. Have a good day. 😁😁 also if you guys actually (for whatever reason) liked it, I'd be happy trying different songs, and maybe start to improve. (Also sorry if this category is only for static P or CDVNL songs)

    Hiya! I've been a fan of Static-P music for a little less than a year from now, and I checked out the Static-P Plus streams back in summer, but I discovered the actually active BSS channel just today. And unless it's nighttime for me, I plan on making an appearance in the next stream! If you want to know a little bit about me, I'm an artist, you can find, like, 3 pieces on my Twitter twitter.com/MidnightCwilk (which I set up at the start of this year, I hope to be more active soon) and from that you can also conclude that I mainly do pixel art. Uh, what else? I like math I guess. And I'm a biiiiggg fan of fictional worlds and atmospheres, moreso creating them. Making a fully-fledged game is pretty much the end-goal of my life. About my multiple aliases: Cwilk is meant to be pronounced Swilk, but Kwilk is okay too; I use EnderBoy 7 as my Google account, so you'll find me on streams under that name; finally, as to avoid confusion, you can all just call me Matt Yeah, that's about it. I hope to be a part of this community for a little while, as it looks very warm and welcoming ;D yo no way you can change colors?

    Hello and Welcome here on the forum. I hope you can make it to the stream although don't stay up way too late for that if you have to wake up early at the morning. Very nice, keep it up and most importantly, have fun with it Fictional worlds are always interesting because everyone can have a different point view on the same thing. It's even fun to discuss. Yes it seems you can change the colors even I have never tried before

    Princess, you are not alone, so don't be discouraged when others don't come the the same conclusion. I personally find it very easy to empathize with those who face trials though I doubt it's as deep of a feeling as you. Though, I don't always find it during documentaries. I find that empathy can even show when watching a show. It we take the time to try and understand what a character is going through. If you want a reason as to why movies don't usually close the real moments up with a nice bow, it's because they're awkward. The moments that really bond people aren't comfortable. Because they are human. So, how do you face such troubling feelings? 1st. Pray, that should always be a go to. If it's not, that may be a part of the issue, but that's a discussion for another day. 2nd. Determine the reason you are feeling the way you do. This may mean digging deeper into the pain, but this will allow you to see the hurt for what it is. That will make it easier to face. 3rd. Learn to live in the uncomfortable. The nature of these is to make you uncomfortable. It's not to paralyze you with fear but motivate you to action. Thus, your focus should be on what you can do in these scenarios, not on the horrors you see. It's like we talk about in golf, if you are focused on the water, you're going to hit it in the water. If you're focused on making your shot. You will make your shot. Focus on the good you can do, not that bad that has been done. And let that motivate you to action. You are an amazing person and have a heart of gold, well, it's probably mainly carbon, but that's beside the point. You care about people and what happens to them. And that's what matters. Let your caring motivate you to great things. Love, Joseph Bohan One of the Real Ones

    It had been a while since I listened to "A Message To Pop Culture" and I had forgot how awesome it was! It really does have a great message to it- especially nowadays, it's more prevalent than ever for people to think for themselves, and not be controlled or influenced by the world that tries to manipulate them. What a great message to put into a song! Keep up the good work, Joe!

    I would've posted this on the Don't Worry Wednesday section but felt that it's more suitable here. For the Don't Worry Wednesday podcast, the description states the date of live stream as May 9, 2017 instead of 2018. The descriptions that state the year as 2017 are the ones that are for "How do I Save Money?", "How do I find a place in this world?", "Friend Overstaying Welcome", and "Problem About a Friend". I think this should be fixed to the correct year.
