:winner: 1st place prize: 500 :points:  (First to finish the event)
:star:  2nd place prize: 300 :points: (2nd one to finish)
:heart: 3rd Place and 4th Place Prizes: 100 :points: each

Anyone else who finishes the case will get their name entered into a RAFFLE to become one of the 2 people to win 50 :points: each and 1 person to win a silver FGA ticket to be used here FGA GATE

[Event will be open for three days]

How does this Giveaway works?

This journal will have the FIRST CLUE or a puzzle that you need to solve, and it will TAKE you to the next clue. That next clue will take you to another one when you solve it, and so on and so forth until you reach the end. In one mystery case session, there are usually 4 to 10 puzzles that you need to beat in order to solve the entire mystery. Full FAQS can be read here if you wish to know more about this later.

Before you start solving the case, please TAKE THE TIME TO READ THE RULES OR YOU MIGHT GET DISQUALIFIED OR BECOME INELIGIBLE TO CLAIM THE PRIZE IF/WHEN YOU WIN! Dont be in a rush; I promise you these puzzles will take time to solve.


1. Be a member (if not already) of the supergroup :icondetective-hq: Detective-HQ. As long as you send the member request, you will be fine! (The join request is on the left side panel)

:star: BUT you can safely do hint sharing in the chatroom (link available below) :D (Big Grin). ALSO, no DIRECT answers/link. Share with HINTS ONLY.

3. :new: DO NOT personally send notes to other detectives asking for hints IF ITS NOT REQUESTED/NOT WANTED. Spamming detectives asking for hints using notes is now considered an abuse due to complaints. If you need hints, go to the chatroom and see if someone is willing to give you one. Otherwise, if you randomly note people, they CAN report you and you WILL get disqualified.

4. You can ask the creator of this case :icondestinyrose09: for ONE hint on the 24 hour mark after this journal is posted.  You must mention WHERE you are stuck. Asking me for hints earlier than that will be ignored.

5. FAV this journal and COMMENT below and say "I AM DETECTIVE ((insert your PSEUDONYM HERE)) and I will catch Kira!" BEFORE you start solving the case. 


What you will need to solve this event

Rose Red Bullet - F2U! A smartphone (You need "certain" apps, if you can figure it out).
Rose Red Bullet - F2U! Anything that will allow you to play around with audio clues.
Rose Red Bullet - F2U! Possibly a paper and pen.

Onto the event and your first clue

CLOSED CASED FILE:  Light Yagami died on January 28, 2013. It's over.

Only its NOT over.

Detectives, our mission now is to catch the mass murderer "Kira". That's not his real name of course, it was a name given to him by the people. A nickname given to Light Yagami. The original Kira. 

Criminals are once again are suddenly dying of suspicious and consecutive heart attacks in their prison all over Japan. This pattern was seen before, merely a year ago. This can only mean one thing....

Kira is back. The deadly notebook from the spirit world found its way to Earth once again. Someone is writing names on the notebook, killing mercilessly. Clearly, someone who shared Light Yagami's belief that mass criminal murder is "justice." 

This is a dangerous mission. PROTECT your name because Kira can kill you if he knew your real name. PROTECT your real faces, because he needs that as well to murder someone with the notebook.

God help us all if this Kira possesses the "Shinigami eyes."

Mass murder of criminals is NOT justice. If you are on Kira's side and you believe that what he does is NOT evil, then don't join this hunt. If you believe otherwise, then know that in chasing Kira, your life is in danger.

The hunt will begin once the countdown on our HeadQuarters is over. Detective-HQ
One of you is a descendant of L and N. Without the blood ties of course. Dont fail them!

info on the species can be found here- New adopt species + MYO eventhey guys, im please to announce that im making a new adopt species. my older one will still be made but here is what i have so far on the new species
i call them dande-lions 

sorry for my horrible spelling, but here is a little info about this
dandelions are protectors of flowers and plants on earth. they are created when a new species/type of flower has been born. they represent the flower and help make its existence known by spreading its seed everywhere it walks (or in other words it's flowers grow were ever it goes). so that it can grow and expand. you can find dandelions in open fields and meadows. but they are shy creatures so they are hard to get close too.
dandelions, unlike real lions do not eat meat. they feed off the warmth of the sun and some eat insects. they are very docile and love people but are also afraid of those who hurt there environment.
there are male and female dandelions with specific traits
-the types of dandelion

also the first adopts are own so go check that out as well~
Dandelions: 100 points each by Moshi-oshi

good luck to everyone!~pink Rose in teardrop crystal vase dewless

RAoK Fan Fiction Contest

Wed Jul 30, 2014, 11:16 AM by SingingFlames:iconsingingflames:

RAoK - Random Acts of Kindness.

Once, when I was just received my driver's license and still hadn't learned to keep track of my various gauges - like, say, the gas gauge - my car sat in a parking lot and refused to start. My poor car was empty, as was my wallet. A generous stranger was kind enough to purchase a tank of gas for me. When I asked how could I repay him, penniless as I was, he merely asked me, one day, to help someone else out. That RAoK experience has stayed with me throughout the years.

A RAoK can take many forms. It can be helping out without being asked or an unexpected gift. For this month's contest, let's show the love to our fellow deviants and dear ones. Write a gift fic for someone close to you. It can be another deviant (there's so many wonderful people here!) or someone offline (spread the love!). Write your fan fiction specifically for your chosen recipient.


  • You entry must be written for this contest and submitted after July 30th and before the cut off date of Aug. 21st, 11:59 PM (Pacific Time).
  • Please list out who your gift fan fiction is for somewhere in your deviation - the artist's comments or in the deviation itself.
  • You may ask your recipient for a request, if you would like, but it is not required. You may write a prompt of your own choosing, if you'd prefer.
  • One entry per deviant.
  • All entries must be fan fiction. All fandoms are welcome.
  • All entries must follow DeviantArt submission guidelines (no porn).
  • Both prose and poetry are acceptable.
  • Maximum word count: 1,000 words. No minimum word count.
  • Original characters/fan characters are acceptable, but the franchise must be recognizable.
  • Entries will be judged on creativity, originality, proper grammar use and how entertaining/engaging they are.
  • Please note Note me a link to your entry with the subject line "RAoK Fanfic Contest" before the deadline.
  • Link this contest journal somewhere in your deviation, either the deviation itself or in the artist's comments.


  • 1st Place - 1,000 Points
  • 2nd Place - 500 Points
  • 3rd Place - 250 Points
  • All entries will be featured in the winners' announcement journal!

Prizes needed for our contest!

Wed Jul 30, 2014, 12:31 PM
Hello all,

From our latest polls it seems that many of you are quite interested in having us host a contest! So your wish is our command! We will be hosting a contest as soon as we have enough prizes, and that's where all of you guys come in to help! We want to give you guys the best prizes we can, but for that we need point donations!

To get you a little bit excited, here's a small bit on what our contest will be:

"To tell a story"

In order for all art mediums to be included, our contest will be a broad topic in which each artist's submission will be related to a story.
What does this mean? Well, in the most basic terms, all art essentially tries to tell a story. Through this contest you will simply be expected to create/tell a story, through whichever abstract or non abstract way you wish to!

But don't worry, more guidelines, explanations, and details will come when we officially announce it!

For now, what we need is to organize prizes, so please:

:bulletred: If you have ANY :points: to donate, please visit my page Mrs-Durden and donate

If you donate a significant amount of :points: we will definitely feature you when we announce the contest winners, as a big thank you for your help!



Once Upon a Time Casts Fringe Alum as Frozen's Ice Queen Elsa

We have seen Etta Bishop’s future, and it is very, very… cool.

TVLine has learned that ABC’s Once Upon a Time has cast Fringe alum Georgina Haig in the plum Season 4 role of Queen Elsa of Arendelle — aka the chillin’ quasi-villain of filmdom’s Frozen.

Previously, TVLine broke the news that newcomer Elizabeth Lail and Greek grad Scott Michael Foster have been cast in the arc’s other two roles, as Anna and her beau Kristoff.

In her Once incarnation, Elsa has long struggled to control her “chilling” powers, and once even — Frozen spoilers ahead! — unleashed upon her town an eternal winter. Ultimately, she realized that the key to keeping her powers in check is love — namely, her bond with younger sister Anna — and now she is aware of the threat she poses if she were to lose control of her magic again.

Previewing the show’s introduction of Elsa, which came about after negotiations with Disney brass and then was teased at the close of the Season 3 finale, Once cocreator Adam Horowitz told TVLine, “We are very well aware of how beloved [Frozen] is, so we’re very careful that we want to tell a story that is uniquely ours but also honors those characters that everyone fell in love with this past year.” Added Eddy Kitsis: “The thing we love about Elsa is she is perceived to be a villain but is clearly misunderstood, and that goes to the heart of our show.”

In addition to her run on Fringe, Haig’s TV credits include CBS’ Reckless (where she’s playing disgraced cop Lee Anne Marcus) and the Aussie drama Underbelly.

Once Upon a Time Casts Two Frozen Characters for Season 4

Once Upon a Time‘s take on Frozen is taking shape, with the casting of two key roles for Season 4.

TVLine has learned exclusively that newcomer Elizabeth Lail will play Anna, Queen Elsa of Arendelle’s younger sister, while Greek grad Scott Michael Foster has landed the recurring role of Anna’s beau Kristoff.

Still remaining to be cast for the opening arc of the ABC drama’s Season 4 is Elsa herself.

Once‘s Anna is described as a fun-loving, fearless optimist who often gets herself into situations where she is in over her head, yet is able to triumph due to her resourcefulness and can-do spirit. She values her relationship with her sister Elsa above all else.

Kristoff meanwhile is a hearty, salt-of-the-earth ice cutter whose sometimes-gruff demeanor can hide his deep love for Anna and her sister Elsa. When we first meet him on Once, he is adjusting to life at the castle — including sleeping indoors for the first time in his life.

In addition to his run as Greek‘s Cappie, Foster’s TV credits include The River, Californication and this summer’s Chasing Life and Halt and Catch Fire.

Once Upon a Time has found Frozen's Prince Hans.

Shameless actor Tyler Jacob Moore has been cast in the season-four recurring role on ABC's fairy-tale drama, The Hollywood Reporter confirms. He will first appear in the third episode.

In the 2013 Oscar-winning Disney blockbuster, Prince Hans — Anna's former love — is the main antagonist, concocting a scheme to earn the throne of another kingdom through marriage. He is first portrayed as honest and noble, but eventually his true colors come out.

The news comes less than an hour after Lord of the Rings' John Rhys-Davies was added as Pabbie the Troll King and two days after ABC's fairy-tale drama debuted the first footage of Frozen sisters Anna (Elizabeth Lail) and Elsa (Georgina Haig), following the events of the movie, at Comic-Con. Other Frozen characters making their debut include Kristoff (Scott Michael Foster) and Elizabeth Mitchell, also playing an unknown related role, though Olaf will reportedly not appear.

Executive producer Adam Horowitz told THR in May that they were "honored" to incorporate the Frozen universe into Once. "We fell in love with [the movie] when it came out last year like everyone did, and we want to do our best to do it justice," he said at the time.
