Underwater Story ~ Misty's Air Bar
Misty's Air Bar - an underwater pub with jazz music, alcoholic seafood, and...actually pretty decent fish people.
The titular bartender, Misty, could usually be found conversing with her customers while on her shift. Today, she was talking with one of her more frequent customers, a buff, tough-looking fish man, about her day yesterday.
"An' this happened AFTER you got off work?" The tough-looking fish asked.
Misty was refilling one of her oxygen tanks under the bar. "Yeah...pretty crazy, right? I mean, all I wanted was to take a load off after a rough day, and instead I find myself tendin' bar again to a blue ca--"
Misty's conversation was interrupted by the bell chime and the front door opening.
"Heeeeeey, Misty~!"
And in that instant, all eyes shifted onto another of Misty's frequent customers, Korrina.
The pub was dead silent for a moment.
"...I'll get back to ya, Clyde." The buff fish man nodded at this, and went back to his meal while Misty turned her attention to Korrina.
"Well,

I'm not on here much, I admit; I am posting my projects elsewhere where I have a little more freedom to do so.

But, also, I am concerned about the future of our society when coupled with an internet that seems to dictate our actions and our decisions, and seems to make us less social via the use of tools dubbed "social media."

I recently saw this broadcast: www.yahoo.com/katiecouric/insi…

The broadcast summarizes the concerns of users of social media (especially girls) with the following: "Social media is destroying our lives; but I don't stop using it because then I would have no life."

I am shocked, and appalled, and most especially terrified.

I understand that people make use of social media to validate their perceptions of themselves in the judgments, comments, and "likes" of other people, and we all do that in a sense with DeviantArt when we post our artwork. But it's becoming an obsession to the point that it is becoming dangerous. People are being bullied, harassed, driven to suicide, and dying behind the wheel because they're distracted while trying to record their speedometers-or worse, take pictures of themselves driving the damn car!

I understand the desire to live through the internet because I do it myself; I don't have too many friends I can go out on the town with, and I work too much to really have a physical social life outside what time I have off. So I play alot of videogames while I try to secure a better job. I'm on Plenty of Fish and OkCupid in hopes of finding someone nice, too.

But seriously! Someone needs to educate people and tell them this sort of obsession of social media is not okay. It is not okay to get yourself killed over a tweet, a text, or a picture, and it's not fair of you to drive someone to suicide over the content they post either!

Personally, I do not have a Facebook; I do not have an Instagram; I do not have a Twitter; I don't even have a smartphone. I do not have accounts on any website that requires me to post daily updates, selfies, or announcements about what I am doing (not really, anyway). I am not obsessed with my online persona or my image online to the point that I post something that gets me fired, but I am mindful about what I post, if ever I do post.

I do not use social media...because I don't need it to be sociable.

I don't have the desire to take a picture of myself and digitally alter my ass to look smaller or my teeth to appear whiter. I don't rip dolphins out of the ocean and pose with them for a thousand selfies until the poor thing dies in my arms. I don't record myself making an ass of myself to the point that I get fired from my job for making an ass of myself.

And I can't really sympathize with anyone who is obsessed with this sort of thing, either.

Think before you post-otherwise, pull the goddamn plug.

Hi, I got your note...I hope you're doing well! :)

I hate to say that Kelly's model was a private request on my part to :iconpadme4000:, and she wouldn't want it shared with anyone else.  I'm really sorry!  But there is another Deviant here who might be able to help.  :iconmelllin: created her original model, I'm sure he'll answer your request to do the version you want.  This is where you can find her, and I hope it helps! :)
