Celebrate deviantART's 13th Birthday!More Like This
On the day of your birth, you were likely surrounded by those who loved you, who would lead you through the rough first scary years of life, and who would stand by as you grew into a capable person. As time passed, others may have drifted into your life, and even if you didn't know it, they also nurtured and cared for you in much the same way, helping to shape the person you would become.
When a community like deviantART is born, the same common thread binds its originators and founding members together. Over the years, more and more creative beings drift into its life and strengthen its core every single day, resulting in an exponentially inspirational powerhouse for the sheer fact that they've become a part of it. That nurturing spirit, that inherent support system, that caring community inspires deviantART to grow, and it comes from inside each and every one of you.

As part of the Harry Potter contest, I promised features to the winners. Since I won as well, I am giving features to the other two deviants who won third and first place.
First place went to ~The-Little-Papaya for her "Fluffy" entry: http://mooshroooom.deviantart.com/art/Fluffy-Harry-Potter-and-The-Sorcerer-s-Stone-389454780
~The-Little-Papaya is a relatively new deviant, but she is pretty talented at crochet as well as polymer clay jewelry. Her works are generally amigurumi and clay jewelry, and with every deviation she posts I see a ton of improvement. Congratulations on winning first place!
FlowersIt was that time of the year again. April 12th was the day. And like always it was a beautiful, clear, warm, and sunny day. Not a cloud was in the sky to dampen the wonderful day. Anthony was driving from the flower shop, having to go to a specific store in Sacramento because the type of flowers he got weren’t at the grocery store. It was a fifteen minute trip from his house to the store, and on that day Anthony always had a soft smile on his young, handsome face. That day always made him think back to the first April 12th since that wonderful day happened. To Ian and Anthony’s one-year anniversary.More Like This
They were both seventeen, and both of them had never dated a guy before, let alone each other. Just spending time together after they began dating felt like a privilege that they never took for granted. Ian and Anthony felt kind of awkward on the gift-giving on their anniversary. What did you give your boyfriend? Chocolates? Girls were supposed to be given flowers, but they were

So this was a rare occasion. California was all about the sun, surf and sand. It was known for Disney Land, Universal Studios and Sea world. People usually traveled to California for those reasons. What about the citizens? Surely they couldn't afford to go there like regulars. Well for the middle class percentage of the desert state. Something came into town. Just like every year. This time Anthony was antsy about going.
The San Diego Fair.
He has been craving to go there since the last time the fair was in town.
Which was last June.
He was going this time.
And he was going to take, drag his best friend with him. Whether he wanted to or not. He wasn't going to take no for an answer. He didn't want to take Kristine. Not today. He needed to relieve his stress. He wanted to spend some time with his best friend, Ian.
The day started off with the sun shining. Basically an overdose of light. The sun was ablaze and the streets were covered in mirages. You could make eggs on the hood
