Merome [One Shot] #5Theme: Magical/Mysterious
Situation: Mitch is going off camping and hears noises.
Song: Up All Night by Owl City.

 
A/N: Another Merome one shot… What are the freaking chances? XD
I’m only doing this because Rob was alone.
That’s what I kept telling myself to shake off the fact that I’ve been away from Jerome for almost 3 months already and I was beginning to feel more paranoid by the moment as I noticed how long I’ve been without Jerome by my side. He said that he was okay, they said he would be okay, but I knew that for a fact he wasn’t. I knew he shouldn’t have gone on this trip overseas alone but he insisted that it would be a short business trip and back.
It was a lie though. He had postponed his flight so many times claiming that something dastardly had come up in the company. Of course I knew something like this would happen so I made him promise me that he’ll call me anytime he’s free but soo
(The journal isn't centering writing pieces e.e)
SimDil90 [One Shot]Theme: Fluff
Situation: Watching TV (Hugs)
"NO BODIL!" I shouted as he kept poking me over and over again in my sensitive spots as we were watching a horror movie on the television.
All he did was laugh at me as I scrambled to the other corner of the sofa, trying to protect myself from any other attacks. Just as I turned around to look at the television, a jump-scare popped out and scared me shitless as I jumped from my corner into Martin, knocking the both of us down.
The impact caused both of us to fall on the couch and bounce on it, eventually coming to a stop as we stopped moving. When we came to a complete halt, I tried to get up by pushing myself up from the sofa but as my hands reached around to find the surface of the couch, I felt my hand run across something hard. As I sat up, I disregarded it and let it linger for a moment too long before turning around in horror to see what I had been touching.
I pulled my hand back with such force that caused me to lose balan
 
SkyMU [One Shot] #2Theme: Happy
Situation: [Choice made by Writer]
Story based off the drawing SkyMU - In the rain
"No, no, no!" he shouted as he pushed the other students aside.
He had to get home early today since it was his best friend's birthday but he got held back by his History teacher whom had assigned him a few extra assignments that he was to complete that term. Being the top student has it's perks and downfalls and this sometimes really affected his scheduling for certain things. This time, it was of drastic measures.
Running to his locker, he forcefully punched in the code and swung open its door as he dumped the unwanted contents that he held in his arms into the locker before slamming it shut. Quickly glancing at his watch, he saw that he only had half an hour left to get everything ready, not to mention him arriving at Jason's house first. He slipped on his dark grey zip up jac

Midnight DreamsSo if you actually read my super long weird description, I said I like to write! So here it is. My not grammatically correct story! Please enjoy and judge even if it makes me sad face.
Midnight Dreams Chapter One: Freedom

    All my life I've lived in this cruddy shack of mine. Talk about a no life huh? After endless eternity, I was finally packing my bags and leaving but of all the days, it had to be the one mother went out to take a walk. I could see the sun glistening between the wood panels blocking the window. In hope to see past the window, I ripped out the nails which kept the boards in place. Sunlight immediately flooded the gloomy room. The gentle breeze brushed against my face just like it did to the trees in my dreams. The outside smelt of morning dew and pancakes.
"Pancakes?" I exclaimed suddenly realizing that meant that mother was back.
"How could you have done such a thing Midnight?! I told you never to touch anything that connected to the outside!" Moth
 
Alone...20 minute short story! I know it probably won't take 20 minutes to read it but what I mean is that it took me 20 minutes to write this.
Two friends are just strolling along on a rainy day ignoring the rain when one of them glances at a puddle. Let's call this puddle staring person Elix and the other one Robin. Elix stops, just staring into the puddle while Robin walks on not noticing. Robin eventually looks back and sees Elix kneeling down in front of the puddle still staring into it with empty eyes. There's a moment of silence as droplets pelt them. Finally Robin walks up to Elix and places a hand on Elix's shoulder. Elix doesn't bother to look at Robin and kneels closer to the puddle. Robin looks at the puddle but all she sees is her own reflection. Elix finally looks up at Robin. He slowly gets up and grabs Robin by the shoulders.
Elix: What do I look like?
Robin scans him over and over again. She thinks for a while and then removes Elix's hands from her shoulders. She gets closer a

So um, yeah. Please check these people out! ^^
I would literally feature 2000 more people but the journal would become too long ;~~; I honestly would though.
Again, please check these people out! Thanks! :3

Gallery Month


Hello everyone! This journal will talk about the subcategory Anime and Manga > Traditional Media and the subcategories within it.

Traditional Media


The "Traditional Media" Manga & Anime subcategory is the home of all Manga&Anime styled artworks created on paper and brought to life with traditional tools. These can be (but not limited to): pencils, colored pencils, watercolors, ink, acrylics, and more.

Drawings


This subcategory is for traditional artworks made with dry media. If your art was colored using markers, colored pencils, pastels, lead and similar materials, this is the place for it!
Here it is also the place where you can submit your traditional linearts, inked pieces and pencil sketches.

Summer moonlight!~ by Nattorin

Manga (comics)

On this subcategory, you'll submit your traditionally created manga story. It contains two subcatgories of its own: Pages & Panels and Strips.

Manga (comics) > Pages & Panels


This subcategory is for individual pages of an ongoing manga, as well as one-page panels of it.

Summer breeze by Rikae 

Manga (comics) > Strips



This subcategory is for a manga stories that contains one-shot comics (a standalone story created as a single issue), as well as yonkoma (a comic-strip format that consists of four panels of equal size, ordered from top to bottom.)

You bring light to my life. by kandasama

Mixed Media

 

This subcategory causes a lot of confusion amongst deviants. Though many believe it is for artworks that were created with both traditional and digital media, it actually isn't -  here is where you'll submit your art that was created using two or more different traditional tools, often pieces that contain both wet and dry media. However, even if the work was made with either only dry or wet tools, it also falls within this category.

random original stuff by nuriko-kun

Paintings


This subcategory is for traditional artworks created with wet tools, usually also requiring a brush. If your art was created using watercolors, oils, acrylics, tea, coffee and alike, this is the place to submit them!

Bloom by Na0h

Tomorrow I'll talk about the miscats regarding Manga&Anime and Fan Art categories. 



:iconprojecteducate:
:iconprojecteducate:


Galleries Month

Traditional Art category is for original works made with traditional media, or for traditional works commissioned (or requested) by the copyright holder.

Fan Art category is for works that contain copyrighted elements that don't belong to you and that were not commissioned or requested by the copyright holder, even if they were commissioned by a fan. If a work contains elements directly inspired by a copyrighted environment but not representing the original material, like a fan fiction illustration, it still belongs to Fan Art gallery, even if there are your original characters in it.

Some subcategories might seem speculative as to where put your work, but in reality it's very clearly specified:


Illustrations

Traditional Art > Paintings > Illustration and Traditional Art > Drawings > Illustration sub-galleries are for illustrations that were commissioned (or requested) by the copyright holder, be it a publisher or the author, and for illustrations to non-fan fiction texts written by you, and for illustrations to public domain texts.

Books & Novels sub-gallery under Fan Art is for illustrations and pictures inspired by a text when you were not commissioned to draw them by the copyright holder and you hold no copyrights to the text itself.

For example: if a publishing house commissioned you to illustrate Harry Potter, you can submit those illustrations under Traditional Art. In any other case - even if you were commissioned by a fan - you need to post the pictures under Fan Art.

The Burrow by LhoxBag End Garden by ullakkoSansa Stark by rai-mondSilver Night by yanadhyanaOwl by Kaelycea


Portraits

Portraits of famous people can be placed either in Traditional Art or Fan Art category. But there's a rule to it. Like when you have a drawing of an actor outside his job, you have a choice between Traditional Art and Fan Art category. But if it's the same actor dressed for his role, it can only go to Fan Art.

For example: a drawing of Tom Hiddleston on vacation on the beach - you can submit it to Traditional Art or to Fan Art, but Tom Hiddleston as Loki goes only to Fan Art.

"heartbeat"



:pointr: varðeldur by sigur rós :pointl:

I would be drowned if your eyes were sea. by CathyDong

the gardenersMy father is a good man.
His hands, dry and
callused, carry a case
of Corona Lite
to the gardeners in
our backyard.
Big-brimmed hats cast
shadows down their faces,
and a pile of thick,
gray gloves lies
on the glass table.
The beer looks like liquid
gold in those clear bottles,
and condensation clings
to the glass like the sweat
beading at their brows.
My father and the gardeners
drink, laughing like they’ve
known one another for years.
There is nothing
that brings men together
better than beer
on a hot day.
How the waves tasted your anklesSince you are the only sailor
of the sea that my moon-
child eyes so easily bleed,
I crumble to shoreline pieces
every time I press my lips
to half-neglected sea glass,
haunted by visions of the way
you rolled cherries on your tongue.
StarsYou fill me up with bubbles,
dreams and futures floating for me.
Using a line of chalk to draw my life plans on me,
outlining where we can go together.
Stars scribbled across my forehead,
highway across my belly.
Breathing in the cars, making a map of our love.


Up to the air by CathyDong

The greatest self is a peaceful smile,

SilenceI don't know what to say
but I have been silent to long
my poetry has been lacking
and now I have finally wrote
Sometime writers block
wraps words around our lips
and tie up our hands
so the words cannot flow
Silence is still good
You get to see the world
from a whole new view
without interference
My style is mostly freestyle
I like rhymes
but they don't seem to fit
sometimes my poems aren't worth it
My words have been hushed
for so long, unconnected
trying to get back in the rhythm
of words and feelings
Its always hard to break the chains
even though people
from the side
just yell "they are made of paper"
People don't understand
the weight of being a writer
unless you have wrote your innermost feelings
and bled out your soul onto paper
Forgiveness"I'm sorry," he whispers from the door, his voice cracking.
    Tears are threatening to spill from his eyes.  I should've been there, I should've been faster, I should've been able to help, he keeps saying to himself. She didn't hear him yet, at least, he doesn't, think so, but even if she did, she probably wouldn't have moved. The only light coming into the small room is from the window, and like his heart, the skies are overcast, giving the room an even more dismal atmosphere.
    His hands curl and unfold with anxiety. He notices that his mouth is suddenly dry and his tongue feels too big for his mouth. He swallows hard, trying to push down his nervousness.
    The two haven't really spoken in a few weeks. One-sided conversations here and there; he thinks it helps her to hear about normal life occurrences. He thinks it might distract her from all of the terrifying experiences she went through. He hears that she'll only speak sometimes, with Asami,
carpe diemwith a quicksilver silver of a smile,
she finally lets go
as the beat of the music
mirrors her pounding heart.
strobe lights and singing teenagers
mix with fog to overwhelm the senses
but she's never felt quite so clear.
she's been ditched by someone she calls a friend and
is hanging with girls who never remember her name,
but it's somehow okay because
it isn't like the night will last longer than
a few hours (and she's gonna be happy,
dammit, because the lights are low and
she can dance without worrying what they'll think.)
people describe eyelashes casting shadows
on cheekbones but really, her night isn't about
those quiet moments at two in the morning,
that she remembers in moments of vulnerability;
her night is about forgetting to be afraid
and learning how to just live.


...that always sees the world smiling back.

Corsica by Annabelle-Chabert

Silhouetting Silence (005)You scraped
unbreakable vows to the dead
into red bricks and tile floors
with jagged fingernails,
huffing snarls at the moon
to hide the noise
of your grief.
When the sun peaked
outside time-dusted windows,
you locked yourself away
and left me surrounded
by silence.
Loss was heavy
on my shoulders,
a corset tight around my ribs,
closest to noon;
I spent my days
silhouetting your words
with numb fingers
and a tongue tied with screams,
wondering where--
if at all--
I was buried.
SoldierToday I go to war.
 
To me it is an honor to represent and defend my country from the enemy.
And who exactly is the enemy?
They are horrible cold blooded creatures that will immediately kill me as soon as they see me, for they do not have any emotions, any heart; they are the enemy, just that.
If I see one of them I shoot, no questions asked, this is a world of kill or be killed.
Finally the time has come, I’m ready and determination fills my gaze as I march towards the battle.
The moment I was waiting for arrives. There is one of them right in front of me, so I quickly get out my gun and without thinking it twice I shoot it.
I feel great.
"That's one of many." I think to myself as I get closer to admire the corpse of the beast.
Suddenly all of the enthusiasm, determination, will and pride vanish away as in the fallen soldier I see myself dressed up in another uniform.
Calender ManMy steps
ask me why
I tread. 
I've been
dead for a full week. 
My arms are x's
and my elbows - checkers. 
I only see tomorrow.
I only think about the microwave
when it screams
for me to stop. 
My lisp is chewy,
quick-line subscript
to match the scribbles
speckling my elbows.
"Hello, sunset.
My steps are heavy."
