Hello there, peeps! :wave: Yeah, I know this is late (again, I'm notorious for that) and my only excuse is that I was busy. But enough about me, let's get on with the fun!

Perksofbeingwallflower1 by DrippingWords


You should be finished with the book, and for those of you who have never read it, be warned; there may be spoilers in the journal and/or comments!

FAAAAAAAAAN AAAAAAAAART!



Perks of Being a Wallflower by krazykitten2310 The Perks of Being a Wallflower by StarGirl30 perks of being a wallflower by kimberlytaya
Perks of Being a Wallflower by claviclecurve Perks by CourtneyTomey wallflower by Nekopie
The Perks Of Being A Wallflower Fan-made poster by TributeDesign Wallflower. by TiffanyAnnIsAG6 The Perks of being a Wallflower Movie Poster Remak by EmmaSo


And NOW, Our Discussion Questions!



  • Do you like that the story is told through letters? Do you feel you know the kind of person Charlie is? His friends and family?
  • Why do you think Charlie wants to remain anonymous? Have there been times when you wish you could have, or did?
  • There are so many books, songs, and movies referenced in this book. What do they mean to the characters? How do they affect the way you read the book?
  • THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER was (not-so) recently made into a movie, with a screenply written by the author. If you've seen the movie, how does it compare? What did they leave out, and why do you think they did so?
  • How did you feel when Charlie realized what happened to him with his Aunt as a kid ? Do you think the author handled this revelation well? How did if affect your view of the novel as a whole?
BONUS FUN QUESTION:
  • You've got 30 minutes a side to your blank cassette tape. What songs would you put on it to make a mix tape for your best friend? Your significant other?



We've got two great books to give to the top participant this month! We're giving away a copy of PLAY ME BACKWARDS by Adam Selzer and GABI, A GIRL IN PIECES by Isabel Quintero. Each book will also go into the end of the year's prize basket!

How do you get participation points? Make awesome comments on these journals! Participate in the end of month journal and make meaningful contributions to the discussion! You can also write a critical review (uploaded as a lit deviation) or fanart, note CRLiterature about it, and get points for these as well.  The team is keeping track of who's doing what, and we're so excited to see everyone's enthusiasm!

We will announce the winner of this month's prizes in the mid-month discussion journal for the next book, which will be a series of short stories perfect for the month of Halloween: selections from THE THING ON THE DOORSTEP AND OTHER WEIRD STORIES by H.P. Lovecraft! It will be hosted by ShadowedAcolyte. Excite!

You can check out our Book Club Schedule to see what books we're reading next!

DA you crossed the line here

Tue Sep 30, 2014, 8:54 AM
Today morning DA banned me from selling my premium content stuff at my stock page Trisste-stock
You know why? Because I was in a  mood and I gave points to 21 people and now DA is accusing me of quote: "Fake sales of artwork in order to "cash-out" (...)"
My hands are shaking while I try to write this!
Yeah, I donated points to people but for the love of God... I didn't asked them to buy my stuff! I didn't insinuated it in even the slightes possible discrete way! I simply donated some points to people and that's it! They have free will! Are people who sell premium content are not allowed to donate points to other members? Did I missed something? God, I am so pissed off. I contacted help desk 8 hours ago with no responce so far. I would understand if DA would have any proof that I gave points to my friend in order to cash out, but these people I gave points are complete strangers for me. Sorry guys, I don't mean a bad thing here. And like I said before. I never asked anyone to buy my stuff.

I'm sorry guys for double tagging you here and in my other journal, but I want to be open with this. These are people I donated points recently:

*Edit (2/15)*
Alright, alright! hitherestranger, LucyXxNyuu13 and I would like to announce our group's first contest! :D

Now this contest will be a little different than the others. Instead of us, the co-founders, deciding the winners, it's gonna be you! We will make a poll of all the stories enrolled in the contest and the other members can read and vote for their favorite one! All entries should be submitted before or on October 30th. Between October 31st and November 3rd , the top 3 stories with the most votes are the winners!

There will be a journal entry where all the submission will be posted for all of you to read. Please do keep an eye to every update, afterall, this is a people's choice contest.

To get all of your inspirational juices flowing we are going to suggest some themes you MAY use to make your story, you don't have to use them if you don't want to.
Themes
:bulletred: Undying Love
:bulletred: Shy/innocent Love

First place winner:
•3 story requests
• 2 art requests or points

Second place winner:
•2 story requests
•1 art request or points

Third place winner:
•1 story request
•1 art request

Important Rules! Something that cannot go unmentioned, your story MUST be written for this contest, it cannot be any previous work. It cannot be stolen either, because we will take the liberty of disqualifying and reporting to the original author of what you did. It can be a series if you wish, but it would be much, much better if it was a one-shot. Be aware that we will be very careful with the entries.

Attention! Your story does not need to be a lemon. Since dA has been cracking down on lemons, we don't want any of you to get reported and have your story taken down. If you DO decide to write a lemon, you can post it on another site and send us the link to it so we can put it in the contest story journal. Any questions whatsoever please do not hesitate to comment in this journal or to note any of the tagged members. We'll try our quickest to reply to all your questions. (Suggestion: Note all three of us because eventually one of us will reply quickly.)

Thank you all for being amazing members! We hope you all have fun with this ^^
Also! If you want to do a story or art request for one of the members, please message: DatAwesome, LucyXxNyuu13, or hitherestranger or send a note to the group itself :3
Thank you all sooooooooooooooooooooooooo much for watching me and liking my artwork. You don't know how much that means to melet me show you the dance of my people 

So I decided to make a Raffle! This is my first time making one. The person who wins this raffle wins 50Points, a free request, and can have all of my adopts im working on right now for free when I post them!

WHAT TO DO-
1- Favorite this journal (Once you favorite it don't unfavorite! If 'unfavorite' is even a word..)
That's all you gotta do and I will  pick at random who will win. I will not pick favorites just because I might know the person who is watching me, don't worry.

WHAT NOT TO DO-
1- Send me a note begging me to choose you
2- Submitting a comment on my wall asking me to pick you
3- Spam me with messages asking to pick you when I make my next raffle
Seriously don't do it. It will really piss me off and it's annoying.

And if you want you can repost this journal letting all your watchers, or friends, or even anyone know about this raffle. Even though it's nothing big......The Raffle will end in 5 days maybe a week. Have Fun!!!!Love

:iconThelovelydaedra:
Hi! Please introduce yourself. What are your interests?
Well let's see, some of my interests would have to be drawing, video games, music and many others. Those are just my basic interests.

How did you find Deviantart and how did you decide on your username?
I found DeviantArt just through searching though the internet one day and clicked on a website name DeviantArt and look around on it for a while then said "hey, I want to do that too." And here I am.
I came up with my username through my love for Skyrim. I wanted something to do with magic and power in the game, and I've always worshipped the daedra in Skyrim. So it just popped in my head "You are going to be the loveliest of all daedra!"

Weekly Pixel mini-challenge #1Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemans! :heart:
First of all, I wanted to tell why i decided to start Pixel challenges. I hadn't make anything pixel for...1 year, i guess. And i thought that I need to do something, 1-2 works per week, maybe? And i made this crystal and thanks to iDJPanda who commented "makes me want to make crystals and stop being lazy" and made own Crystal. Looks really awesome! We didn't expect that some people will ask to join our mini-challenge. We have a similar idea aobut challenges, so...let's begin!

Each monday i will feature works from last challenge and bring a new theme. You need to do one (or more) Pixel deviation for challenge and send a note to Arichy. Please make your works before sunday, thank you :heart: 
Rules:

  Contest 2014/2015 - everyone wins something!I skipped the contest last year because I was kind of depressed, but now I feel better so I can make another one!
I decided that everyone who enters this contest will win something!
So here we go!

Theme:

It is simple: draw one of my Original Characters! I have many of them so you can choose the one you like the most!
If you think dragons are awesome go with Altair in her God Form, if you feel more comfortable drawing humans, she also has a human form! She has an animal and anthro form so you can really draw whatever you want! If you feel like drawing robots, this year we have our super cute Hummer!
Accepted artworks:
EVERYTHING! Digital, traditional, black and white, linearts, sketches, crafts, photomanipulation, 3d, animation, pixel art, literature, plushes, sculptures, anything!
I feel it important to emphasize that Literature is very welcome! Many writers are worried about their art not being appreciated, but I appreciate literature

:iconpumpkinborderplz: Autumn THEME 2014: "AWESOME ABSTRACTS of AUTUMN!" :iconpumpkinborderplz:
Let's Get ABSTRACT, and Let's BE AWESOME about it!
Unframed-Nature would like to try something a little different, as a group, for this Contest.
Using themes, colours, scenes, and feelings of the Season of Autumn, as we experience the season wherever we live around the globe, we would like to see artistic depictions and expression of Autumn as ABSTRACT ART.
This works well for media such as:
:bulletgreen: Photography, Traditional, Digital, Fractals, Collage, Mixed Media, Literature, and more, including some of their sub-categories.
If genre is new or semi-new to you, my most basic way to think about Abstract work, is in using these three together:
1. COLOUR- usually brighter than not, and how the colours work together.
2. CURVES, oft

The Illuminated World ContestStock & Resources
The Challenge
Imagine a world where the soft glow of the magnolia blossoms illuminates the sidewalk. The reaching branches of the tree cast their light over the street, reflected in the gathering puddles of a spring rain. A garden nearby is a riot of colors against the deep shadows of the night. The harsh artificial street lights that we know today are gone. What would your world look like? Is it a world where the need for fossil fuel has been eliminated, or have the scientists bio-engineered the earth into a beautiful apocalypse?
The idea of bio-luminescent plant illumination is a real project in progress by three scientists in San Francisco, California. These scientists are engineering marine bio-luminous bacterial DNA into plants to make them glow. You can read more about their project here: Glowing Plants: Street Lig

  #our generation contestThe 70s were a wild, hippie-filled time, Michael Jackson and Madonna set the tone in the 80s while wonderfull movies like Forrest Gump, The Sixth Sense, Mrs Doubtfire (bless you, my captian), Tatanic and many more dominated the 90s followed by great polical change (the first black president of the US, the first woman as Germanys Federal Chancellor, e.g.) in the 2000s.
So many things are happening in the world. So many things to leave a mark (good, bad or neutral) on you as time passes.

Autumn leaves divider by Stygma

:hug: People in need


VERY Important - Please read~!Hello guys! Sorry for the lack of updates and things. Last week I finished school. I have completed all four of my major works and i'm really excited to share my art animation with you all! Unfortunately I can't publicly post it just yet. Final exams start three weeks from now and after that all I have to worry about is Uni. 
But for now, I have an important favor to ask of you guys.
This November, instead of going on a 'schoolies' holiday like most graduating highschool students and getting off my face for a week straight, i've taken the chance to travel to Cambodia to help the less fortunate. 
I will be travelling with some of my peers from school, to build houses, schools and to fund medical and stationary supplies. 
I, personally, will be taking art and craft supplies (colouring books, paper, pencils, pens, etc), to teach the children some art lessons <3 I was specifically asked to do this ^w^ I'm really excited.
To be able to go, I need to raise the funds. I've a
  Help a friend! Urgent!Hi my loverlies!! I just learnt that petrova is in dire need of help as she only has a week to raise $420 to pay her rent and bills! She's gone through a lot this year so I think if we all help a little we'll be able to give her a good reason to smile again!
She has an etsy shop with gorgeous items you can buy but you can also donate directly to her paypal or to her bank account if you're swedish!
If we all collaborate a little we can do this!
You can read here about her story:
Within days I need to pay my bills that are 6268 sek (877.21 usd, American dollars) and I only have on my bank account 3248 sek (454.66 usd) which means I am missing around 3000 sek (420 usd) to pay my rent, insurance, electricity and internet.
I can't sleep at night because I stress so much, I have no idea how to get the rest of the money. My parents have already helped me. I am so scared of being homeless.

  Please helpSeptember 28
I am mind blown and lost for words for all the help I have gotten. I will write a more proper journal post tomorrow or Tuesday. As of right now I should have enough to cover my bills (if I calculated correctly), if I would be lucky to get around 400 sek more I can buy my medicine too but if that doesn't happen I will at least know I have a roof over my head for the coming month.
