Gamin' with Grandpa
Alright, all you young whippersnappers, lissen’ up now! Grandpa’s gonna take you back to school--OLD School!
I hear you little punks boastin’ about yur Level 99 whatevers in dat der newfangled World o’ Warcraft game, actin’ like you’s all big and bad, an’ let me tell you, you don’t know jus’ how good y’all got it! Why, back in my day, we didn’ have no fancy-schmancy Playstation 4 with dat der wha’chamacallit, LAN, nosiree Bob! Why, we played Colossal Cave on a big ol’ mainframe, and we liked it! None o’ your fancy “multee-player” nonsense, either--when we played computer games, we did it solo! And none o’ your fancy ‘tree-dee’ graphics, neither--nuh-huh! We actually used our ‘maginations, readin’ words on a screen, like in them thar ol’ Infocom games I’s tellin’ you ‘bout earlier! Why, when we wanted to game wit’ more

Kitirena in Peril!
“Hey, Kiti-cat!” I called to my friend.
“Yeah?”
“I need your help!”
Kitirena poked her head into my lab. “Okay. What’cha need help with, nyao?”
I had to fight hard to keep from smiling. Catgirls can be so gullible at times… “Actually, the world needs our help. I need you to put on a maid uniform for me, quick!” I handed the cute maid costume I had nearby for this particular purpose.
She gave me a puzzled look, then examined the maid costume. “Nyaa? What does a maid uniform have to do with saving the world?”
I waved her off. “No time to explain. This is urgent! Hurry up!”
“Alright,” she agreed, “but you owe me an explanation later when this is all over.” She crossed the room, took the maid uniform, then started to undress. “Don’t get ideas, you!” she called out playfully to me. “I know how you Fae are, nyao!”
I actually did laugh a

LordDarkstarr's Profile Picture
LordDarkstarr
Derek Starr
United States
Born centuries ago and switched for a human newborn, I was subsequently raised by a pride of alley cats who taught me the Way of the Cat, meow. Since then, I've been a wizard, a mad scientist, a role-player; studied engineering and the paranormal; taught Defense Against the Dark Arts for a year at Hogwarts and studied sorcery at Miskatonic University and the Scholomance; went completely mad (but since mostly recovered); and become interested in Steampunk and Cosplay.

When not stealing art from various websites or generally making a nuisance of myself online, I can be found either in Elfhame Mysthaven or somewhere south of Seattle, WA, USA, and I only bite if you give me permission first... although if you scratch my chin just right, I'll purr like a kitten!

I'm part Unseelie Court Fae and part cat--which makes for a very strange mix indeed! You may think at first that I'm mad as a hatter, but I'm usually a nice guy once you get to know me... Just be careful, because I have a thing for whips, chains, and naughty games (and not all of them are played in the boudoir, if you know what I mean!).

If you like what you see, drop me a friend request, please! I could always use more playthings, er, I mean playMATES! -_^
Interests

Cross-Pollination

 

I received a rather pleasant surprise earlier, when I went to check my messages--the lovely and talented donnaDomenitzo, who (along with her significant other, the equally talented and lovely etherias, both of whom I consider friends even though I’ve only recently met them here on DA) mentioned my story “Caged” in her journal entry about Flattery (donnadomenitzo.deviantart.com/… ). Admittedly, when I needed a bit of inspiration for the dominant member of the duo in the story, I remembered a lovely bit of work she had done, and the picture I “borrowed” (donnadomenitzo.deviantart.com/… ) happened to be just what I needed at the time.

 

I’ve heard “real” writers--ones who write for a living, instead of just hobbyists like me--say that ideas are everywhere, and I’ve discovered that it’s very much true. Just looking around, and chatting with folks here, I’ve gotten several good ideas that I need to make the time to start working on now. It seems like every time I’m on DA, I stumble across something interesting, whether it’s a lovely landscape that evokes a story, or a portrait that gives me an idea for a character or situation, or a story that makes me want to read more, or even add to it. I know that the wonderfully talented sigeel started the webcomic Bloodstain based on a sketch by her equally talented husband shiniez, and my brother Reki has developed entire scenes in his own writing based on comments or suggestions I’ve made--and I can’t even remember all the times that I’ve made a flip comment at someone, only to see their eyes light up with that classic expression of “why didn’t I think of that?” And I’ve heard stories of how different artists were inspired by the works of other artists, such as the legendary Tezuka Osamu-sensei was inspired by the works of Walt Disney, or how some of my favorite musicians list other favorites as influences.

 

Of course, the really interesting--or perhaps even dangerous--thing is that whenever you bring together a group of talented and creative individuals, like most of the people here at DeviantArt (present company somewhat excluded, since I’m only creatively disturbed ;) ), you get a kind of creative feedback loop--a sort of “cross-pollination”, if you will, in which one person will draw or write something, which will then inspire someone else to create something, which in turn inspires yet a third person, and so on and so forth…

 

Ironically, the only reason I originally came to DeviantArt was because I read an entry over on TV Tropes (tvtropes.org) about Sunstone, the BDSM webcomic started by shiniez, and since it was flagged “mature”, I had to create an account to look at it. Once I did, I started seeing links to other works, and when I followed them… well, let’s just say I’m hooked for life. And when I stumbled across one particular meme in another deviant’s gallery, I made the mistake of mentioning it to a friend of mine, which inspired a story… which caused the person in question to dish out a little payback, which I had to chronicle in another story, and deal with the aftermath of in a third story… and since I knew that people would probably wonder who we were and what we looked like, I decided to throw something together in 3D Custom Girl--which started getting faves. When I took a look at who was ‘fave’-ing me, I noticed some groups that looked interesting, which led to me seeing more interesting artwork and stories, which led to my commenting on them, which in turn led to receiving a comment which inspired another story, which led to… still more cross-pollination!

 

Of course, all this madness has led to something else--reading comments by artists whose work I admire saying “well, it’s not THAT good…” and commenting on how they want to get better. Well, judging from what I’ve seen already, if I want to be anywhere near as good of a writer as some of the folks I follow, I’ve got some serious work ahead of me already, and if they strive to improve, that just moves the already pretty high bar even higher--which means that I have to improve that much more just to keep up! But that’s actually a good thing; I’ve got to improve just so I’m good enough to collaborate with writers who’ve been here longer and are better that I am, so that I can inspire others who in turn strive to keep up with the skilled writer I one day hope to be, so that they in turn can challenge me to improve even further!

 

Whew! I’m exhausted just thinking about how far I’ve got to improve!

 

Anyway, enough of this silly ranting. Time to get to work! Excuse me while I go steal a cup of inspiration from someone…

Actually, I'm from Tacoma, and hating it horribly. If my brother and I could afford to move to Seattle, we would in a heartbeat, believe me! (We're both on disability, and neither of us can afford a place alone, so we share an apartment.)

If it weren't for the fact that my brother and I are going to move in the next few months, I'd ask if you'd like to get together sometime. Unfortunately, I don't have a vehicle at the moment, so I'm limited in how far I can travel right now, but I'm working on it...

How do you like living near the biggest source of hot air in all of WA? Wink/Razz

Not a problem at all! I know all too well how real life can interfere with fun stuff--my brother and I are gearing up to find a new apartment in the very near future, which means that I'm about to be rather busy soon. And thank you for the great artwork--I plan to look at more of it as I have the chance. :D (Big Grin)

Thanks! I like yours as well!

I'd jokingly suggest that everyone named "Darkstar" or a variation thereof get together for a convention, but I don't think there's a convention center big enough to hold us all! <laugh>
