These are free, NOT FIRST COME FIRST SERVE, please read everything before commenting. :D Everyone has a chance, don't be afraid to join!

I feel like I could give you guys a new chance with the requesting-stuff because it's loads of fun, a lot more people deserved something from the last journal +  this is just a way to thank you awesome people for all the support! This time I made some adoptables/character designs for everyone, and they are FREE. I really love how ALL these turned out. ;A; <3 Seriously, there are so many different designs, I'm really in love with all of them! My wish is these to get good homes and be well taken care of, and I'll be looking for new owners here. c:

FREE adoptables! by Lithroxid

If you want one, do the following:

1. Be a watcher (If you don't watch me, do so now! I want to thank someone who supports me! ;D).

2. Favorite this journal! (I check)
3. Leave a comment where you tell me 1 or 2 adoptables you want the most, and the reason why you want it/deserve it/what you want to use it for/maybe if you have some plans/stories/names etc. for it already. c:
4. Tag at least 1 deviant's ICON (a friend?) in the comments, so they can see this journal too! + I'll check them out, llama, maybe comment and so on! 

Rules (Ask if you have got any questions!)

-If you win, you can change the species/form
-Don't claim any design as your own if you haven't won any.
-Don't claim yourself as the original creator of these designs or art.
-If you won, you are NOT allowed to resell, but you can give away or trade the designs/characters with others for free.
-Even though you can wish for two adopts, you might only win one in this event. 
-You can use the design for everything else you want! Comics, drawings, fursonas, original characters, etc. :D

Now, tell me which numbers you want. Have fun, everyone, and thanks for being so great. :) <33

EDIT: IT WILL TAKE TIME to reply to everyone and choose, but I assure you that every comments will be read, and every deviant which are counted in will be noted down and organized. Thanks for the patience! ;3;

Well, if you follow the story of Antique Lace Stables you will know that the stable was bought in its time of financial need and the discovery of Willa's cancer, and that it now sits nestled near the town of Aspen in the Roaring Fork Valley of Colorado (… LOOK AT THE COLORS!). So, in order to raise awareness of our new location we are holding a show with traditional English classes and a few miscellaneous events.
Our Show arena (where Show Jumping, Halter, and Liberty events will be held) looks similar to this 
Our Dressage Arena (outside) looks like thisand our Cross country track has obstacles that look like this  , and this, and this, and this , and this (finish Line, it is in fact a horse-shoe).
Because it is August/September (in game) the general scenery looks like this kind of.

          :bulletblack: Please do not reuse old show images, use pre-made linearts (if they belong to someone else), use photo backgrounds, or have your entry be a                                            photomanipulation.

:bulletblue: Dressage
        For Dressage you may show your horse doing any kind of Dressage move, but please try to make it accurate to the amount of training given to your horse (a highly               trained move drawn without effort will not win over a beginner level horse done with effort). I will require standard dressage dress (Dressage cap or top hat, coat,                 square saddle pad, etc...).
:bulletwhite: Cross-Country
        In cross country you can show your horse either going over a jump, moving from one jump to the next, taking a tumble on the course, or anything having to do with               your horse going through the course. I am requiring leg protection on the horse (just for realism), and for all entrants to wear the cross country vest and a helmet.

        Your horse may be shown walking, trotting, cantering, turning, or standing. Your horse must be wearing a halter and entry number must be visible.

:bulletblue: Show-Jumping
        You must have rider in show attire and horse must be wearing leg protection. You may show your horse going over any kind of jump ( you can make up your own jump!)         just so long as the jump is appropriate for your horse's height, age, and experience level.
:bulletwhite: Hunter Seat
        You must have rider in show attire and horse must be wearing leg protection. You may show your horse going over any kind of jump ( you can make up your own jump!           They will be a mix of show jumps and cross country style jumps) just so long as the jump is appropriate for your horse's height, age, and experience level.

I accidentally came across Naolito today while creating this post. This first design that I saw really captivated me, it was incredibly stylish, and made usable by so many due to the availability of the item as a t-shirt and sweatshirt online! The design it self is really fun and enjoyable.. 

The images that Nacho creates are fantastic! In his biography he writes:

  PE: Literature Basics SettingsLiterature Basics Week
Along with characters and plot, setting is one of the most important choices we make when we write. In the most basic terms, setting is where your literary work takes place. It's up to you, as the author, to use it and mold it to fit the needs of your writing, make it more than just a backdrop to your prose or poetry.

A good setting becomes like a character itself. It can be express moods, offer comfort or hindrance. The setting can even be the main antagonist - consider the Overlook Hotel in Stephen King's The Shining, or the island in the 2000 Tom Hanks' film, Cast Away. In both of these examples, the protagonist(s) have to survive their surroundings, one mundane, the other ... less so.
Make Your Setting Work For You
Everything in your written work must be chosen for maximum effect. When deciding on your setting, decide what you want to accomplish with it. Here are some possibilities.

Scavenger Hunt Answers + WINNERS

Journal Entry: Fri Jul 25, 2014, 12:25 AM

The I-Heart-Colors first Scavenger Hunt was a success! A huge thank you to everyone who participated, we hope you had fun and learned new things about our group! :glomp:
The event journal with rules and prize listings can be found HERE.

We've now calculated the points based on the notes we received.
Points were given as follows:
A correct checkpoint location + link: + 1 point
A correct answer: + 1 point
An almost correct answer: + ½ point
A wrong answer: - 1 point
No answer to a question: - 2 points Yes, we encourage guessing!

This means the max. point amount was 26 for finding all 13 checkpoints and getting every question right.

The fact that nobody got full points tells that this wasn't the easiest event! We are aware that some of the questions were a bit challenging and a few checkpoints were very well hidden. But since each checkpoint was found at least once and every question received at least one correct answer, it wasn't an impossible task to complete! :)

Do you believe that Madellaine from "The Hunchback of Notre Dame" is underrated?  Has the movie "Maleficent" totally changed the way you think about good and evil?  Do you roll your eyes every time you talk to someone who doesn't know about the female genie Eden from the TV series of "Aladdin"?

Then this the perfect contest for you!

As many of you know, there is a list of approved Disney heroines, and every submissions has to have some kind of depiction of a character from the list.  Time after time, I have to decline amazing pieces of art that depict female Disney characters who just never made the cut.


Yes, that's right!  We are going to add a new Disney heroine to the list!  Here's what you have to do in order to get a chance to put your Disney gal in the Gallery!


- 100 deviantART points
- a feature
- your character added to the list of approved heroines and her own folder in the gallery
(I'm sorry the prize is so low.  I have to budget my points.  Donations are welcome but not mandatory. :) )


Pick a female Disney character who is not currently on the list who you feel is a heroine and be included in the gallery.

Make a work of any medium (drawing, sculpture, short story, etc., any type that deviantART accepts) that depicts her.

Write a paragraph about why you think she should be considered a Disney heroine.

Send a note to SavvyRed with the subject headline "Disney Heroine Contest Submission."  Include a link to your work, your paragraph explaining why she is a heroine, the name of the character, and the name of at least one Disney film, TV show, etc. that she is from.


1. You MUST be a member of our group Disney Heroines to enter the contest.

Since we only accept submissions in the Gallery from group members, it makes sense that only members should be allowed to enter the contest.  If you are not a member of the group but you want to join the contest, you can do so if you join the group before you submit your entry.

2. You can only make an entry about a Disney heroine who is NOT on the list yet.

This list is here:…

So your character has to be one who is NOT on the list.  Otherwise, there would really be no point in having this kind of contest.

- Strictly male-identified characters.  (I.e. John Smith, Aladdin, Prince Adam, etc.)
- non-Disney characters (i.e. Fiona from Shrek, anyone from Dr. Who, My Little Pony characters, Tigress from Kung Fu Panda, Bugs Bunny, etc.)
- Marvel Comics characters, Disney Channel characters, Star Wars characters.  I know they belong to Disney, but there are way too many characters for us to start putting those characters in the gallery.

- Ambiguous or androgynous characters like Pleakley from Lilo & Stitch are accepted, but please don't submit an entry about how the Lumiere from Beauty and the Beast is way too fabulous to be a girl.  You can submit a genderbent version of the Disney heroine for the contest.  The winning heroine's folder will be open for both genderbent and non-genderbent artwork.
- Disney-Pixar characters (i.e. Merida, Mrs. PotatoHead,  etc.)

3. If you submit a piece of literature (i.e. short story, poem, etc.), it MUST be no longer than 1000 words.
I'm sorry, but I don't have time to read a fan novel that is 200 pages long.  I'm not actually going to count all the words using Microsoft Word, but I will tell you if I think your submission is too long.

4. No nudity.
I think it will just make it easier this way.

5.  One entry per contestant.  One heroine suggestion per entry.
You can have more than one Disney heroine in the art or literature, but you can only suggest one new heroine.

Feel free to ask any questions!
We’ve been getting a lot of apps this past week, and before TheCau and I leave for vacation (1-9th) the staff wants to hold a Q/A livestream!

So tomorrow at 5 PST we’ll have a livestream up and going. The goal is to answer as many questions as we can—we’ll be talking while you type, and a few other staff members will come in to help as well.

The goal is to get things cleared up and to give everyone a chance to ask things we may not have thought about. New questions will be written down to update the FAQ with. I may doodle a bit in-between questions so something is on the screen.

So feel free to pop on in to ask questions and talk with others/the staff!  This journal will be updated tomorrow with the livestream link and should appear if your notifications!
