Crystal and Lauren Pt 1

A slightly tamer rendition of Aeolus' and CDB's original characters....well, tamer than the girl-on-girl version.

All Good Things Must....

As the old expression goes: "All good things must come to an end".  So ends the saga of the Gonz├ílez brothers web comic "Where have all the villains gone?" based upon the Ryan Phelan fanfic of the same name. So, without further ado, we'll bid it a fond farewell and look forward to what our neighbors south of the border have in store for us next.

Good god, I'm gettin' all misty-eyed here...

Wardrobe Malfunction

Does Shego look as if she's missing something?  I you said 'yes' then you'd be correct.  In it's original form this work included kskillz' non-KP original character, "Shred".  I found this way first, in its "DA friendly form", and found the original version completely by accident.  Not so much a color or recolor as it was a clean up job.

Oh...if certain portions of this one look slightly different than the rest that's because my old, tried and true CorelDraw 8 (circa 1997) finally took a dump on me when I bought / built a new computer this past week.  Apparently Windows 7 isn't quite as compatible with legacy software as it's predecessors....so I stepped out of the dark ages and am now using CorelDraw Graphics Suite X5.

Vending Machine

Throughout time and memorial one could not deactivate (delete) ones own deviantART account because....well, DA's policy enforcement guys are a bunch of Prozac-addled simpletons who more than likely received their diplomas from a vending machine.  No, not a gumball machine...nothing that clean and innocent.  I'm talking about the sort that are in bar and gas station bathrooms, right next to the condom dispenser.

Now however, I discovered that one can now...FINALLY...deactivate ones own account.  I found out about this strictly by accident while searching for an (now deactivated) acquaintance.

It has become clear to me that there is no chance in Hades that my old phillipthe2 account will not be reinstated.  This tends to happen when one calls DA's Director of Policy and Copyright Enforcement an "objectivity-impaired retard" and then ask to speak to his immediate supervisor.  He seemed rather...ummm....indignant.  It's the equivalent of getting shitty service at a fast food restaurant and asking to speak to the manager....all the while the cook is in the back spitting in your food.

At any rate, I decided to be done with it and deactivate the old account.  Hmmm...seems pretty straight forward:  Deviant pull-down menu, click on 'Settings', click on 'Deactivation' in the 'Personal' column, and........"You are not allowed to access this part of deviantART because you are banned."

Yeah.  Now, picture the DA staffers proudly holding up their diplomas....while standing in the lavatory from Train Spotting.
