Before Getting to the October Announcement, the Admins of Angels-And-Gangstas would like to award a posthumous AWW to MagicalJoey, who has passed away at the age of 31. Jo was incredibly active on DA, collecting points for prizes, being an admin for ten groups, promoting others and being an avid commenter and a stalwart member of the Literature Community. Now, Jo is an angel with real wings. May she rest in peace.Angeliccc 
The Siren's CallThe Siren’s Call
17-08-18
Gently she calls,
On a lullaby’s whisper;
My name honey-dipped words
Echoing from her lips.
“Come, lie back. Relax. Put up your feet.”
She beckons me with soft, firm pillows,
A blanky I’ve had for years,
And a firm mattress clothed in crisp cool sheets
Of a new blue hue.
“Come, my love, and spend time with me.
Our nightly trysts are becoming all too brief.”
She whispers like soft silk;
Voice as velvet in my ears
And like satin sleeking around my mind.
Softly she sighs my name,
And though I am far from her,
I hear her as if she were next to me
Shouting anthems for all.
  A Disney PrincessA Disney Princess
10-08-18
I am a Disney Princess,
My hair’s done up real nice,
With curls and ribbons, flowing locks;
It really looks just right.
My dress is gold and silver,
There are jewels within my ears.
And when the clock strikes midnight,
Nothing disappears.
All animals adore me,
They come running when I sing.
And Prince Charming wants to wed me –
He even bought a ring!
I can shoot arrows with precision,
From my royal bow,
And my hair’s longer than the tallest tower;
It’s really quite a show.
I am a Disney Princess,
Though I’m only as big as your right thumb,
And though I’m not part of your world,
Don’t think of me as dumb.
I am a Disney Princess,
Though I was born a Charming Prince.
I made the change at puberty
And haven’t looked back since.
My mother is the Queen of Swords,
So bully me if you dare!
She run you through, then throw you off
A cliff without a care.
My father is the ruler
Of this land and then the next.
  Mental ManipulationSandy waited for Judy to cast her vote as the secret ballot went around the room. She had thought that this would be an easy task – conning parliament into a vote of no confidence against the president and, once he was deposed, taking his place as the first woman president in the history of the country – being vice president certainly had its advantages, but, no, it hadn’t been easy. For the first six rounds of voting there had been one person still on the president’s side…out of all 250 delegates, one person had voted ‘confidence’ and, of course, Sandy needed a full 100% for the vote to pass. She thought back to the conversations she had had during the lunch break and suppressed a smile.
Possessing some psychic abilities, Sandy had always found reading people – their intentions and, more often than not, their thoughts – a very easy task. It was what had helped her convince the president, in a move that stunned parliament, to promot

The AWWs for October 2018


caddman ~ ChasMandala ~ Barosus

Angel without Wings Award by Nameda



caddman suggested by MEP4Photography

I'd like to suggest an AWW for caddman. Skot's super nice to everyone. He gives many of his CraftCrow awards (more than one type) in his comments on many Devs a day, as an encouragement; it's the way I see them when I get them. He definitely does journals supporting other artists...a lot! He's an admin of seven groups. He's been a member here on DeviantArt for 16-years and knows a lot about the site and the community. If that's not supporting other artists, I don't know what is.

Added by Sassy--Cat ~ "Skot is very kind, always personally makes his appearance on your page to thank you when you fave his work and never fails to comment and reply."

Hope in music of sadness
Hope in music of sadness
The Poem
-----------------------
I am going to
My special place
To find the words
Like when voices
In my head help
Makes me feel again
You always find
A way to keep me
Right here waiting
Searching for feelings
As the light fades away
I'll be right here playing
Am afraid since
The day that you
Left in the end
Its pulling me again
Am falling Down
six feet to the ground
The pain is spinning
In my wounded head
For words left unsaid
Memories are
Like riddles that
Make you sad
Am afraid since
the day that
you left in the end
Another sleepless night
with only a ray of hope
Has become my only friend
 T Wing Dreams 06 by caddman  Life is a journey2:21 PM 9/11/2018
-------------------------
 
Life is a journey
In the river of time
Only but a dream

The first step is the hardest
Then comes the balance
All else is even flow
 
When all is gone
And we all fade away
Rust turns to stone
 
I wave my good byes
Forever to darkness
Soon will slip away



ChasMandala suggested by MEP4Photography

Charles is an awesome member of the community. He's very generous and caring, dedicating each and every dev he does to a fellow watchers or to everyone. He's cofounder of two groups. He's done many features in the past; I've noticed his older ones are gone, but I believe that may be due to his almost leaving DA because of a spammer on his account .But he's here and always a wonderful, giving, empathetic person on DA. We could use more of those like him.

Barosus suggested by DanielaIvanova

Edward is a writer and a dreamer and an art appreciator to the core who has personally been a huge motivation and inspiration to me, always supporting my endeavours with enthusiasm and love. At the moment his huge heart, his enthusiasm for art and his selfless and giving nature benefit not just me but a multitude of deviants - be it through supportive or whimsical comments, encouragement or critique on others' work, starting out meaningful conversations or simply by being his quirky and hilarious self. As an artist himself he has done countless reciprocative pieces, which is exactly the kind of community spirit that I've only seen on dA and which sparks such joy in my heart. Over the last 170+ days he has been dilligently running his unique and outstanding Fantasy themed feature of top notch art, that includes works not only from dA but also from Artstation, thus fostering this vital link between the communities. And it's not just his personality that is uplifting and brightening - his art is a treasure chest of quirky characters, passionate poems and an overall hugely imaginative mind that can be an inspiration for us all. I doubt there is a single soul who has brushed against Edward's captivating persona that wasn't touched or inspired by him. He is one of the people whose response and whose activity I am most looking forward to on dA.

The arms of a galaxy spiraling
The full spectrum shifts, twirls
Lurking behind prismatic eyes
The colors of our consciousness
We are the stuff of stardust
A glorious impressionistic dancer
Pirouetting across the palette
Ordained to paint our world
Meaning and belief crashing
In a kaleidoscopic whirlwind
The quintessence of expression
Beauty, pain and such sanity
We are prisms refracting light
Bleeding shimmering rainbows
