Foreword by techgnotic
Kay (aka damphyr) is DeviantArt’s go-to expert on everything “Pokémon.” She also occupies the adventurous position of being one of DeviantArt's main enforcers of standards and practices. We thank her for being a guardian of artistic erotica and especially, for being able to answer every question we get asked about Pokémon and just about anything else for that matter. Supreme Keeper of all pop culture knowledge, Kay must be protected in case of global disaster.

She has awakened before a gate she has no memory of opening. She has no name, and
no memory of how she came to be here, at the first station of a fateful quest she
does not understand but knows she must continue.
Who is she?
Only you will bring her to life.
Only you will tell her story in your words and your art.

Happy holidays from deviantART!Happy holidays from deviantART!2 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through dA,
Not a troll was stirring, nor Grinch in his sleigh.
Deviations were hung in digital Galleries with care,
In hopes that +Favourites soon would be there.
The n00bs were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of Daily Deviations danced in their heads.
And Fella in his 'kerchief, and spyed with his night-light,
Had just settled down to log-off for the night,
When over in the Forums there arose such a clatter,
Fella sprang back online to see what was the matter.
To the browser window he flew like a flash,
Tore open the tabs and refreshed the cache.
When what to his art-loving eyes should appear,
But an animated sleigh and eight commissioned reindeer,
With a little old driver, so creative and slick,
Fella knew in a moment it must be St. Nick.
More rapid than broadband, his reindeer were famed,
After all his favorite art

Thumbling Down Into The Dark DreamHave you ever wondered what the art of Tim Burton's daughter would be would she exist and be old enough to paint?Thumbling Down Into The Dark Dream2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I have found the answer today. Not that I was inquiring about the question but - sometimes, answers come before questions.
I discovered her today via the Front page and Helllooo enchanting surprise!
I find such a magic in this piece - every bit of it captures the eyes - lets the mind wonder - and you find yourself wishing to hear the long languishing sorrowful melody she plays -
Moving in further her gallery - some incredibly striking intense and yet so subtle and soft pieces entrap you further more.
The melody of the violinist has guided you here - but would you take the chance to asking hospitality for the night ? or would you rather keep walking in the chilling howling cold windy night ?
She also draws human characters, so if you wish to see yourself through her mirror fo

PripyatHi,Pripyat5 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
As some of you may know Pripyat is an abandoned city in the north of Ukraine. It was abandoned due to the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant accident of 26th of April 1986. And some areas still remain uninhabitable due to high radiation levels. A clear reminder how dangerous nuclear reactors are.
The disaster had "only" 56 direct deaths, but over 800,000 people suffered from radiation all over eastern and western Europe. People still lay down their lives cause of this.
I've been fascinated by this place ever since I first heard of it a couple of years ago. The idea of a town abandoned within hours, and still remained untouched after so many years astonishes me.
When you look at the photos you can see what they were doing on that day, on that moment. Pripyat is like a photo in that perspective. The city has been frozen in time since that exact date and time of 26th of April 1986 at 1.23 am local time. And it will probably be like that for a long time.
I am planning to go to the exclusion

Together we will make an Exquisite PoemHello! I'm wei-en, but you may or may not know of me as ~redserenite.Together we will make an Exquisite Poem2 years ago in Personal More Like This
A few of you might remember that at the end of last year, a few knownames members participated in a collaborative work in the style of Exquisite Corpse.
"Exquisite Corpse is a method by which a collection of words or images is collectively assembled. Each collaborator adds to a composition in sequence, with each participant being unaware of what the others have written. The technique was invented by Surrealists, and the name is derived from a phrase that resulted when they first played the game, "Le cadavre exquis boira le vin nouveau." ("The exquisite corpse will drink the new wine.")"
The prompt was silence and the result was this interesting and dynamic poem:
This time round, I would love if we could have even more members participate!
Instead of a word, the prompt will be a song: "http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2sYXdE2zuyg" Fairest of them al
