Merry Christmas, Scee-KelJinny, the young Batarian girl, adopted by space-pirates and living on a spaceship (in space), woke up without necessarily knowing that that particular day (in relative terms, of course. There really isn't any 'day' or 'night' in space, as there is no light or sound) was Christmas.
She looked around her room, her four eyes rolling around in their sockets and coming to rest on the two-foot-tall Geth replica, which stood placidly over her like a watchful guardian.
She smiled, got up, did her morning routine, and headed into the living-room/lounge of the ship, only to find something a bit…confusing.
There was a scrap metal tree adorned with blinking lights and wires that Mili—the Quarian techy—was attending to, and everybody on the ship was gathered around a smile pile of brightly colored boxes. Oh, yes, and Kardek was wearing a floppy red hat, with a little white ball of fluff at the end.
And it also seemed that Jaxxris, the Turian captain of the ship, had donned a bright red and white s

I know that many deviants have had a rough past year. I know I have. For some, it was the economy, for some changes in their families and loved ones, and I know for some it has even been on deviantART. We have all had struggles, but this time of year, whether you celebrate Thanksgiving or not, is as good a time as any to thank people for what we DO have.
In this world of little, we all have something we hold dear to our hearts. Now is the time to say thanks.
So, what I would like to invite everyone to do is in the next 48 hours (Today + Thanksgiving), fave this journal to show your support, then comment with 4 things you are thankful for:
1 thing on deviantART you are thankful for
1 thing with your family, loved ones, friends, etc. you are thankful for
1 thing in your life you are thankful for
1 piece of art you, or a fellow deviant created that you are th
District 9 PoHA RolePlay 01Something always smells in the district. Litter and rotting pieces of pig carcass thrown about are the obvious reason. Something always smells not necessarily in the literal sense too. There's the occasional neighborhood murder; a neighbor, there one day, suddenly gone the next, detained perhaps.District 9 PoHA RolePlay 012 years ago in Sci-Fi More Like This
But today something really reeks. The stench is revolting even to the poleepkwa, already stirring in their shacks, ready to face the challenge of a new day; most unready for the sight and smell of the carcass rotting away among a heap of trash, giving out a sort of chemical odor even the flies avoid.
The fellow is but a chunk of blackened meat, grotesquely mutilated, missing entire areas of his carapace. How he'd even made it half-way under the wire fence, not out of, but into the district, in his condition was beyond belief. Nobody that night had heard him scratch the dirt, trying to crawl free of the stinging wire. He lay there with his arms outstretched, as if reaching out for his home whic
The Top Reasons for Manuscript RejectionOne of the things that the literary agency I work for does some weekends out of the year is teach seminars on query writing and the first 5 pages of manuscripts (which, basically just means the first page of the manuscript). The seminars last only a day or two, but aim to help writers improve their queries and start of their books so that they have a better chance of standing out in the ever-growing slush pile. Since I know many members of the literature community here aim to one day be published writers, I thought I would share our sheet of the top reasons for manuscript rejections. Please note: These are in no particular order.The Top Reasons for Manuscript Rejection7 months ago in Literature Features More Like This
Wrong genre Agents have guidelines for specific genres that they like to represent. Just like you and me, they have certain genres they love and certain genres they don't. Sometimes, it's not because of personal preference, but because they don't know the market for some books as well as other agents who are very passionate about
