Show love, everyone! It's a beautiful thing.Soooo, I have a journal idea I think everyone will love. I want people to comment on this journal with people they love! Pretty easy, right? Mention/tag (Whatever term you wanna use. ) people that you love for whatever reason! And if you'd like, add a small (Or large! ) blurb why! Here, I'll start!Show love, everyone!

WeirdAndLovely, because she's the most beautiful girl on the planet to me. She's smart, witty, charming, and I'm so glad she's my girlfriend. She's a brilliant artist and I love her so damn much.
SpriteBlayde, because Kelsy is my longest (and best) friend. She's been here for me through thick and thin, when so many people have come, gone, tried to come back and left again, she's been the constant for me for two years. And I couldn't be more grateful for that. She's my sister!
A-Lovely-Anxiety, because she's my favorite 49er. So brilliant, beautiful, intelligent, and a wonderful sister of mine. We'll always be southern 49ers

Poem written by an 11 year old Afghan girl
This poem was recorded in a NYT magazine article about female underground poetry groups in Afghanistan. An amazing article about the ways in which women are using a traditional two line poetry form to express their resistance to male oppression, their feelings about love (considered blasphemous).

I've been thinkin' about this idea for AGES and now...I think I can make this happen. :iconfingerscrossedplz: These are the list of wonderful deviants who are gonna join me on this super collabo'. <3 If you guys want in, comment here, on my latest poll or note me. At midnight I'll post another poll on the topic and we'll all vote on it, then I'll note all of you guys and we can get started. There's absolutely NO deadline, but I'd really love for this to be finished by the end of the year. Sound doable, right?
Please! Don't be intimidated or anything, I want a ton of people to join in, so don't hesitate if you want to write with us. I think it'd be so amazingly fun for everyone. Creating art and sharing it with the world of deviantART. Sounds pretty epic to me! In my mind, I wanted ALL of us to write on one topic and make it our own with only a few short stanzas. (

So I'm going to feature 4 writers who I feel deserve more attention.
First, is a friend of mine in the beautiful br0kenbutterflies. She's quickly becoming one of my favorite writers on deviantART and I'm so happy she's on dA to share her beautiful works. Her poetry is so....honest, so introspective, it carries so much weight and beauty with it. I adore her works:
Second, is a new deviant by the name of Vanelopes-corner. We've only spoken for a little bit but her passion for her poetry is more than evident and I appreciate it. I love it when I come across someone who loves literature as much as I do and I can feel it in her words, as well as her creations:
Third, is the very kind Kamission!

Literature Roadtrip 2.0 TimetableLiterature Roadtrip 2.0 Timetable1 year 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!

My deviantART StoryMy deviantART story starts over a year and a half ago, when I first joined. I had lurked around the website before, but finally got up the guts to get an account and start posting. I started on this website as a person who enjoyed anime and manga and refused to draw anything but anime and manga. A few of my first deviations:My deviantART Story10 months ago in Art Features More Like This
You'll notice that one of these says Happy Birthday. That's because when I first joined, it was shortly before my best friend, chromeantennae, from another website, had joined deviantART. I made that picture for his birthday because of his love for Sonic and the character, Silver. Not long after I posted that picture, he got an account of his own.
Since then, my art style and taste have evolved fairly dramatically. Starting with my art style. I began drawing more realistic pieces in graphite and also began slowly uploading some of my poetry.
To date, these are my favorite graphite drawings

I just want to take a moment and let you know, I appreciate all of the watches. I may not have as many watchers as some of the other artists out there, but you have no idea how much each watch encourages me to keep writing. I could've given up awhile ago, but the watches, faves, and comments are always helping me get better, and just knowing there are people out there who care about me like you all do makes my days. You have no idea how much it means it me!
I don't know if you've noticed, but after I get a watch, I usually do not thank you for the faves. Therefore, in order to thank you all properly, I make a major feature. In this case, I reached 5,000 pageviews and decided I wanted to dominate the world!

The first day of the Literature Roadtrip 2.0 was incredible. I had a lot of fun travelling around three different profiles and exploring the pieces of literature that I had not had the pleasure of reading. The three beautiful deviants that I visited today are extremely talented individuals, and I urge you all to go over to their profiles and check out their galleries as you will not be disappointed. Give them a comment, a favourite, a shout out, anything. Please!
The moment that I opened up her gallery, I was amazed. Her talent is astounding, her work is inspiring and she has probably become my favourite writer on deviantART.
I was so happy that I was able to read through this be
Literature Contest! (closed)EDIT: Contest closed! I didn't realize I forgot to do it yesterday until I looked at the date a few minutes ago, so sorry about that! I'll be judging the pieces as soon as I can, and I'll put up a journal once everything is figured out (probably in a week or under, I'm not really sure). It's going to be a hard decision, but that's only because every piece was so wonderful! Thanks to all of you that participated, and I'll let you know the winners soon. <3Literature Contest!

EDIT: Hey guys! I meant to update this a week ago warning that the contest was closing, but I've been super busy (and kind of AWOL) for a while and completely forgot. Because of this, I'm going to extend the contest for another week - I don't know if anyone else was planning on entering, but just in case! So I'm going to be moving the end date to December 7th. I promise no more moving it after that. c:
