who has been super nice to me on this site ;v; /hugstight

How to enter (the requirements):

1. Must be watching me ☆
New watchers are welcome! tho pls do so only if you actually like my art ;-; which i hope so if you're planning to enter this

2. Fav this journal
This is only for my convenience sake, since I'll be entering your names in a random list generator rather than a number one

3. Post in the comment below with your OC & any extra info about him/her
this is for whoever the winner is so that i'll be able to note down their order asap and onto my list-to-do

*if you don't satisfy all these 3 requirements, your name won't be put into the random generator*

Bonus chance to win (optional):

1. Share this raffle in a journal or poll!
your name will automatically get put in twice in the random list generator
pls link the journal or poll onto your comment along with your OC ref!

Some things to keep in mind
- I only do humans & kemonomimis (demon horns are ok)
- I can do both male & female but not super manly guys ;;
- prize will take from 2-3 weeks to complete due to other priorities
- will be using for choosing the winner
- I will put in as much effort as I do with normal commissions for this!
- I should be sleeping /slapself

Please make sure that if you want to join the raffle, you must post a comment with your OC refs!!

Wishing Upon a Star 15.5.3

Tue May 26, 2015, 2:17 AM

Featuring membership and contest/event wishes.


Take a look at the new wishes!



:star: DrippingWords wishes an extension for her premium membership. :star:

thick shade, warm dark.night sky, dusk sun sinks.
moon thrives - life filled drink,
grow wild, bright wind soul.
spring breeze; live trees blink.
Silver Tongued MysteriesThat night, when your lips tasted of butterflies,
I discovered supernovae in your eyes.
Your gossamer lashes brush against my skin
and my heart soars like symphonic violins --
but your apocryphal words cloud in my mind
as I realize for so long I have been blind.
I am a panther caged in your desire; weak,
filled with an apathy that makes my bones creak.
The roots connecting me to earth are brittle
as burned wood, a pain that throbs inside my skull.
That night, when your lips tasted of butterflies,
I discovered supernovae in your eyes.
Your gossamer lashes brush against my skin
and my heart soars like symphonic violins.
The sky-trees sing of ignorance in beauty,
telling stories within their aging rings, free.
Their voices twine together in the east wind
and make their way to me, though my eyes are dimmed,
all the way across the ocean. I struggle
away from the abyss that seems so chasmal
while pressing my footprints into silver sand;
trying to leave a permanent mark here, and
that night,
Winter NightsSnow gently resting on the ground
brings the neighborhood kids around.
I sip hot cocoa as I watch
through the window, listening for laughs;
a scene straight from a photograph.
Snowballs thrown and chilly hopscotch
sends me back to the days when I
was young -- observing starry skies
and eating melted butterscotch.

If you granted a wish or if your wish was granted, please leave a comment or send the group a note. We need to know who granted the wish and who has their wish granted. If you grant multiple wishes, please save us time by listing everyone instead of just saying you granted everyone's wish. For premium membership and point wishes, please tell us if you granted the wish in full.

Please note that the wishes to be featured are usually gathered on Friday and the features might come a few days later, meaning that your wish might not be feature then but the week after.

That's all for this week folks! Wishing Upon a Star will return next week with new wishes.
