Venus"O'er the ache of mauve shores erotic winds billow long & deep... Her scent drips from the sky onto bare skin, bejeweling my senses like a tapestry of blushing petals besieged in rhythms of passion.... Whispers of untamed rapture beckons my lips as I descend into her gaze, unto the sea of bliss where I shall forever drown."Venus2 years ago in Personal More Like This

*This is getting a lot of views strangely, so I thought I'd explain what my journal is all about: It is a place I have
designated to share small quotes I enjoy creating, or anything that is short and doesn't fit within the form of usual poetry.
Feel free to share, fave, comment.
We raise by lifting othersBeing a deviant is not just about being artist, its about caring,loving,supporting and everything... I am sure i wont just get this much support if i was just uploading some artworks or photographs and just sit there. Instead , I was just inspired by some precious deviants who love to support other people.so now with all this people around me i feel responsible at-least to do a part of what you guys did to me. There is no magic in making that much points although i remember i never buy any points from here..and points are nothing but some care , More we care more we feel special..We raise by lifting others2 months ago in Personal More Like This
I believe i came with nothing and will return to with nothing but some memories finally, So everything is just between my travel.thanks.
So now its your turn.
Link a Deviation of another deviant which u think is so Talented but dont have enough exposure and that should be featured.U will get 5 points for doing this.
Thanks love you all

Literature Roadtrip 2.0 TimetableLiterature Roadtrip 2.0 Timetable2 months ago in Personal More Like This
Can you believe it? Can you actually believe it?! Literature Roadtrip 2.0 is officially here - well tomorrow anyway. But I am excited to announce that this is the official timetable! It was incredibly hard to choose who to have in the first three days, but I am very happy with my decision. I was unable to have every deviant suggested on the last day, so I choose those who were suggested the most. I hope you guys enjoy the trip and if you have any questions/have a problem with my decision/wondering why you weren't chosen/want to chat send me a message, I'm always willing to help you out!

dAy Brighteners!I stole this from SimplySilent because she's amazing. Skin is not mine.dAy Brighteners!2 months ago in Personal More Like This
So I have this mini-project up called dAy Brighteners (sounds like an air freshener ) where Deviants go to any five other Deviants and comments a sentence or two in an attempt to brighten up their day. It can be friends, stranger, even Groups. I think this might benefit the community here at least a bit.
If this gets big enough, maybe a Group could be developed. Or at least a bigger project!
Plus, if you join, you'll get a Llama from me.

Contest idea? We need your help :)Hello, sweeties!Contest idea? We need your help :)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Would you like a photography contest with a big prize in points?
Jeremy (K1ntar) and I have an idea about the subject, but we're curious about your response.
The subject of this contest should be about your most prized possession.
It doesn't have to be something expensive, it can be anything you love and cherish; something that has a great value for you.
What do you think? Is this a good idea and would you participate? Please let me know in comments.
(We're also open for suggestions)
Have a wonderful evening

Frequently-asked questionsTime to bump this one :3!Frequently-asked questions1 year ago in Personal More Like This
1) Did you read Percy Jackson?
No, but I read the original myths when I was a child. I dont really read fiction books, I prefer to read science articles about biology, and astronomy and history
2) How do you make your art?
1) I draw the page
2) I scan the page
3) I edit the page using an old program called StarOffice 5.0 (not available for download, it was a disk)
4) For any quick edits / corrections, I use MSPAINT
3) If you hate democracy so much, what is your best form of government?
Autonomous Villages. Each village with its own set of laws.
Example: If you are gay, you can simply move to a pro-gay village. If you are conservative, move to a conservative village. If you are a gay conservative you can move to gay conservative villages.
To me, the secret of peace is SEPARATION, not INTEGRATION which is OBVIOUSLY not working and creates more hatreds.
Every set of people that wanna live und
