Genesis According to the Lir, Part TwoCHAPTER THREE: The Fall
Now in this time the World had come to be fully explored, save for one small island, upon which stood a lone tree. And God had made it clear to His Children that the fruit of this Tree was forbidden to them, for its’ potential was beyond their understanding and would bring them harm. And there was a sadness behind His words which they could not understand.
Their curiosity and desire to learn kept them coming back to look upon the Tree and study its fruits, even so far as to climb upon the island and peer closely at the fruits thereon. But they kept God’s counsel and touched it not. And Lucian looked upon them with fire in his soul.
For many a year had Lucian held his own counsel. But in the fullness of time he sought the thoughts of his equals: Michael, Gabriel and Uriel. And he made his argument, but was rejected. For the other angels had come to love the Seven and would see them prosper.
But not all. And Lucian found in them his followers bu
Fever in the Fire Chapter 1: Welcome to Astola     Cynthia stepped gingerly inside the cave, wincing every time a footstep was loud enough to echo. No other noises reached her ears save her own, but she wasn't taking any chances. Reports had reached her town that a dragon was living in the nearby Riryoku mountains, and she'd volunteered to deal with it, peacefully or otherwise.
    Though Heaven knew they'd have preferred it, coexistence with a dragon was utterly impossible. People that lived too near to their resting places had reported as much. Livestock went missing. Convoys were attacked. Villages and towns burned down without warning. And there was nothing anyone could do about it. The dragons were simply too powerful. Yet to her dismay, the progress of humanity depended on keeping them docile. It was an eternal Damocles Sword hanging over their heads. After all, what did morality and empathy matter when you could fell a forest with a single roar?
    She shook her head and went fu
The Nation of Mystery Chapter 2The Galley known as the Swift Maiden swifty cut through the waves of the Great Sea. Its three massive sails billowing with the southern winds that took it back to New Trisos. It was was the flagship of the Madrilian Fleet stationed in Pinowa, so it only made sense for General Diego Legazpi to use it as his unofficial command center on the return trip from the island of Aterb.
He hunched down on his desk, frowning deeply as he started to write down his reports of the recent campaign. He didn't bother glancing up from the paper as the other pens and papers started to slide off his desk. Instead he only reached out only to grab the bottle of ink which nearly tipped over as the ship tilted from the waves and placed it on them as a paper weight
He wrinkled his face in annoyance as he wiped sweat from his bros and continued to work on his reports. Diego sighed and rubbed his eye together. Each word that came out from his pen fanned the frustration burning inside of him. Judging by the loud t
Nation of Mystery Chapter 1Juan Sevilla leaned forward on the deck rail of the ferry. He tried to peer around the horizon for any sign of land. Despite the morning mist that crept over the water like a bride's veil, he was able to make out the silhouettes of the white rock cliffs of the Bravatinian coast.
He turned his gaze down towards his suitcase to make sure that the briefcase that contained his entire life savings and other personal effects was still at his side.
A gust of cold wind caused him to pull his frock coat tighter. He wished that he had brought his woolen greatcoat with him, but that was probably still sitting on his bed back in New Trisos. Juan knew the northern kingdom would be colder than the tropical town he grew up in, but not this cold. But such was the cost when the harbor was an hour carriage ride and you overslept.
Juan let out a few brisk breaths, seeing a white cloud blow out of his lips caused him to tug at his coat. He failed to notice another passenger making his way towards him.
The Wolf, the Machine, and the Child part 1
A steel hook thrust into the icy cliffside wall held the bearer safe from falling. Perilous winds beat at his thick cloak as he contorted his body, enabling him to reach upward and stick the other metal tool in the ice, far above the past tool’s mark.
A strong howling blizzard raged through the mountain range, creating a difficult climb up the cliffside ice. The climb was too early. In any other circumstance he would have waited it out, but the broken hull of a crashed ship couldn’t provide enough protection, nor would be a good place to set up a warm flame. The cave entrance above had proved a promising sight before the storm hit.
The cloaked figure turned to attempt a view of the surface below, the ship he had come from, or even anything for that matter. An odd sense had struck him, as if there was something else climbing the mountain. But nothing was visible except the air, rent with millions of little white flecks of ice passing by at dangerous speeds, and his white pan

Disclaimer: It goes without saying, but I'm saying it because I have to: I do not and probably never will own Star Wars. Credit to Lucas and his team- plus all the book writers. I only own my own characters (for now: Darth Logaar, Darth Quienne, Captain Cavi Mieha, Colonel Canderode Lorick, Kajtie Fysyr, Agent Haraldt, Thuly, Master Lao'na Lalyr) which are based on the already existing universe.

Ahlacia and Rowan, first meeting (I.S.O.A) He could smell it, the fresh meat roasting way back in the kitchens. The scent was like some giant animal pushing its way through a crowded street, carelessly shunting all the rivals who vied for space on the cramped battlefield. Its effort's not withstanding, Rowan could smell the other things it so forcefully suppressed, a variety of secondary foods as well as numerous drinks. Lastly and most prominently, he could smell a strange, spiced scent that arose from various dispensers scattered around the room. What he did not smell were the scents he'd expected to find upon entering this rather disreputable building, namely sour sweat, stagnant air and spilled beer that belonged to the exceptionally cheap variety.
  Rowan sighed and sat back in his chair, once again searching the dinning room for the unsavory men he felt certain lurked in some back corner just waiting to spring out and start fighting, possibly hard enough to kill someone. As before, however, the most dangerous t

Yomi entered the classroom and stood in front of the students. He had just transferred schools, and thus had to stand there for a few minutes while the teacher introduced him to the class. He resisted the urge to just stare off into space. The room was boring, the teacher’s voice just droned on and on, and none of the students he could see in front of him had any features to distinguish them from one another, not counting gender. It was as if they were all bit characters in an anime, who served no purpose except to fill out the room in the background. So he let his mind wander, while still taking care to make it look like he was paying attention. That crack on the back wall looked interesting; it would be a good way to keep his focus on one place while at the same time ignoring what was being said. How much more time could the teacher possibly spend on introducing him?

For your benefit and ours, do not submit any art to this group's quality controlled folders that breaks these guidelines.
It takes time for us to decline, and just adds to the backlog.
We usually can't even provide a reason for declination, but it's usually a matter of art quality.
So, here are the basics:
And of course, we still have the beginners art showcase for art that doesn't meet these.
NOTE: Only the "Best Of" folders are judged. All art gets into the June 2013 folder.
:bulletred: Don't send in any poorly done WIPs sketches or badly scanned pictures. We want the finished product! Send in your WIPs to other groups!
:bulletred: Digital art has to have shading, or at least be artistically flat, with nice patterns and form.
This means no muro or ms paint stuff, unless it is WELL done.

Group Update #69 : Your Feedback.Feedback regarding the new Submission Guidelines was mixed to negative.
In this Q+A interview, our group Founder will try to clear up some misconceptions and fears about the new submissions rules and folder system.
Q: Why was this new system implemented?
A: Because someone trashed the group, erased all the folders and made me have to redo everything.
Q: So, what is this new system, and why did you change it?
A: Our group was in crisis mode. We were dealing with too many submissions a day, and none were monitored. Most times, people would just unwatch the group and lose access to important updates about social events.
Something had to be done. This hack actually was a blessing in disguise.
It allowed the admins and I to design a new folder system that we thought would provide the best of both worlds: A place for expert premium artists to showcase their work amongst their peers AND a place where beginner artists could submit and be inspired.
Q: That's nice, but exactly WHAT is the system
Group Update #H1N1: Updated FAQ and Clarification.:icondeirdre-diuran: said: :iconsaysplz:"Could we get the Rules and FAQ updated with the recent submission details and changes, and a clearer rule on frequency of submissions (how many per folder per day/week/month per person)?
Much appreciated :)"
:iconslambox: :saysplz: Well, I think that's a good idea. While my previous post gave a general overview of what to expect; , it wasn't really CLEAR about what limits exactly are in place.
This post is.
Most folders marked "Best of" have  limits of 2 submissions a day- 2 deviations a week, which are quality checked. So CHOOSE WISELY, even if BOTH are declined, your limit is still up until next week.
The June 2013 folder allows you to choose 3 deviations a day and submit them.
The Beginner art folder has 2 a day to cut down on spam, and the art dump has 5 a day.
