human time capsule
evidence suggests I
spend my energies on
friends who end up enemies and
more or less the rest of me worn
thin from splitting them from me torn
limb from lingering memories born
blessed unless the less you see seems
better than the best of me and
I forget how to forget myself so
sometimes I'm someone else or
else the effort's unaffected
(I'm in pieces/you're collected)
calmly confessing
conflicted questions
every breath an
unlearned lesson
(dispersed
in all directions)
each truth unearned
despite intentions

Kiss the Sun
Sunlight kisses
my eyes,
slanting
through lobby windows
across old furniture
and yellow-and-green carpet.
and mare's tails,
drifting,
whisper of more good to come -
dry days are ahead.
I see you and I see light
making these simple things
out of darkness
and when the sun kisses my eyes
I want to kiss it back,
and I do,
with head full
of words
and eyes richly speaking.
You've said things I remember
and don't
and I've said things I remember
and don't
but I remember most when words
stopped and
our language
was spoken through
light beams and darkness.

Summer Habits of Dragons
Day 1:
Perhaps deciding to study a desert island inhabited by dragons with only a few others wasn’t the smartest decision ever, especially in the middle of summer, but I’m sure we will all survive.
Day 2:
Dragons do not like tsunamis.
Day 5:
Commander Smith’s new rule is that if a dragon comes rampaging into our camp, we are not allowed to propose cooking food to serve the dragon as a distraction, especially if the planned meal involves glazing one of the elves with orange sauce and serving him with summer squash.  
He also did not like the argument that I thought the whole reason we banned 100 year old humans but not elves or dwarves was that 100 year old humans would be gamey, but the others still usable as emergency food/bribery supplies.
Day 8:
The male elf is finally recovered from his injuries sustained during the initial attempt to feed him to the dragon.
He attempted to challenge me to a duel, which I immediately accepted and then tried to burn him to dea

Dare
    Coral gazed into the surface at her own reflection. It looked scared. What a stupid thing to be, she thought. There’s nothing dangerous about this game.
    She scrunched her eyes shut anyway and thrust her hand into the surface. The cries of admiration from her friends made it worth it.
    “What does it feel like?”
    “Cold,” she said. “And heavy.” There wasn’t the same kind reassuring pressure she was used to. She pulled her hand back out slowly and felt the warmth return to her skin. The others would make fun if they knew how scary it had been, so she tried not to let her relief show.
    “Do it again!”
    “No, you do it. I did it already.”
    “If you do it, I’ll do any dare you tell me to.”
    “Oh, really? Will you swim out to the shipwreck and bring something back from it?”

FFM10-Searching for Someday
When I wake it is on a hardwood floor and in a dress so tight it hurts to breath. I gasp and the air whistles in. There is an inhaler next to a tipped over wine bottle. I reach for it with finely manicured nails, chipped at the ends.
Now I can breathe. I scan the room. It is mostly empty. No pictures or personal artefacts. A single mirror peaks out from behind the closet door; a strange place for such a thing. I stagger towards it, legs longer than I am accustomed to. I wobble, my feet sheathed in nude heels. I stop and then kick them off. They bounce against the wall and nearly clobber me in the face.
I breathe onto the glass then wipe away the mist. My face slides into focus. It is pretty but I am used to such things. What makes it particularly striking is the long scar running down the corner of my baby-blue eyes to the curve of my sharply pointed chin like a teardrop drawn in by a toddler.
This is the kind of face you’d never forget. I wonder how it happened. It puckers along

FFM16-20 Genre Mashup
    “We need more magic in this room,” the Fable Book said, and proceeded to cough out a few fairies and a cloud of pink pixie dust.
    “No, no, no,” the Garden Book argued, as it always did, swatting away fairies with its glossy, image filled pages. “If you want to brighten this place up, it should be with a few well placed shrubs and a water feature. It spat out a pair of box hedges and a paving stone.
    “That’s boring,” Fable book whined. “This is a library, a place of magic.” It discharged a tiny pink dragon and two unicorns. The unicorns ganged up on the dragon and began chasing it around the shelf, egged on by the watching fairies.
    Garden book kicked one of the unicorns, sending it spinning away to collide with a fairy. Both fell to the shelf with a tiny wumph. “Get your head out of the clouds, Fable. A library is a place of orde

Planetary Problems
It was impossible to wash the stink of pollution off her surface, but she tried every date night. Earth was waiting on Pluto to arrive for dinner and a movie. She was always late because she insisted on living in the middle of nowhere. None of the other planets approved of their relationship, seeing as Earth's inhabitants had removed Pluto from their planet list. Earth chuckled, accidentally creating an earthquake that destroyed a small island. They had no idea there were twenty nine official planets, Pluto included. 
Pluto arrived, giving her a quick kiss that gave the American midwest a mid-summers freeze. "Ready?" 
"Of course. I thought we could watch the polar bears tonight, I feel rather sorry for them." Earth said.
"Of course, I just... I thought we could talk about it first." 
Earth sighed, sending an avalanche down onto some unlucky climbers. "Do we have to?" 
"I want you to be my universe partner. I want dozens of little moons with you. I love you." Pluto s

In Soviet Russia...
    I always thought that the stories were nothing but jokes. Cheap laughs for sweaty, unoriginal interneteers. And so I had never thought that when I did visit Soviet Russia and went to my rented car, it would indeed drive me.
   
The black Sudan smiled at me and spoke in a murmur by lifting its hood; "finally. I've been waiting for days." Then it snatched the keys I were holding, stuck it in my mouth and jumped on my back.
    It was strange at first, but I quickly got used to it. The car wasn't as heavy as people said it was and it was actually quite nice. It told me to turn by gently pulling at my ears and always sang along to the radio (which, by the way, only played Boney M.'s "Rasputin" on constant repeat). Along the way I saw mostly strange sights, feeling like quite the tourist. A short bulldog was taking its owner for a walk, and a new Kickstarted company was advertising its slogan; "Machine Programs You!"

Hunger
The fox had been hungering for quite some time: its fur was growing thin, a dull blanket over starving ribs, and it walked with the careful steps of one who has but little strength to spare. It limped as it walked, for its left forepaw had been hurt some time before by the trap of a hunter. It had escaped the trap with its life intact: but now it hungered, and could no longer hunt.
Today it had caught a carrion scent on the breeze, sweetish, cloying: the smell of rot. It was a hope, and the fox was limping towards it as quickly as its meager strength would allow. Surely it could find something to scavenge from a kill so old.
But as it followed the scent, and at last slipped through a line of dense bushes into a clearing, it found not a wasting cadaver, not the remnants of some other creature's hunt, but a camp – a man's camp – with a greasy fire and a row of iron cages with thick bars. The man himself sat beside the fire, whittling from a piece of bone. His skin and tattere

Nimue
The magician and the huntress hurried through the forest as the storm lashed the trees and cracked the sky above. Although the raindrops soaked the magician and battered the brim of his hat, they seemed to be taking pains to avoid even brushing the huntress. When they arrived at the arch of the tower ruin, he was exhausted, while she showed barely a sign of fatigue.
“Are you alright?” coughed the magician, slumping against a pillar.
“Thanks to you,” answered the huntress, sitting beside him. “What is this place?”
His eyes could see through time, what this place was and what it would be, from an exquisitely furnished nobleman's folly to a hollow wreck punched through by branches, home only to beasts and ghosts.
“Home to a couple, for a short time,” he whispered. “Lovers, before tragedy befell them.”
They were almost nose to nose, breathing heavily, exhilarated by the run and the weather. The magician felt himself magnetised to

skin loose,
you float in the ocean-bath,
sea salt bubbles up to your nose,
& dream of something.
i have not seen your dreams,
your desires,
& i am more than ignorant in these moments,
more than lost as i wait,
my eyes on the skin around your uneven knees.
i ran this bath for you,
bucketed salt
& sand until i ached;
i will clean it too,
washing away the sand
& you, too,
when it is done.
as i think,
as my mind wanders & forgets,
i watch.
your hands are almost transparent
sand clinging to your nails,
& i am brought to the idea that you,
quiet, lovely you,
might become a mermaid after all.
you dreamt of it as a child,
in the quiet way of a boy with a 'girl' dream.
i remember hours at the pool,
in the bath,
watching you meet your feet,
watching you kick your legs like a tail.
i remember you telling me that you wanted to be a fish,
just a little fish,
& i believed you until,
one day,

    “Mage!” Professor Listner snapped. He was a wizard of the old style, complete with a beard, spectacles, and everything. With the name Mage and training to be a mage, you can bet I was his favorite student to torment. I was everyone’s favorite student to torment.
    I cringed. I knew what was coming. Sure, I was trying to be discreet but I never was good at being sneaky. The red hair kind of made me stand out too much to get away with anything.
    Still, I tried to put on an innocent smile. “Yes, professor?”
    He ripped the ingredient out of my hand and gave me a stern scowl. “For the last time, we do not use sandpaper in a soothing bath spell!

Yesterday I moved closer to campus and I start my new classes in a few days. I'm beyond excited! I signed up for a Japanese language course which I'm most nervous-excited for. I've been studying Japanese on Duolingo and hopefully I can master the basics. But, even with classes starting I should still have plenty of time for DA. I actually have a contest idea brewing, so stay tuned for that. :plotting:

rad trad: july 28 + life stuff update!
It's been a while since I've posted a personal life update here... like maybe a few years! Even when I was a CV, I didn't talk about myself much. Honestly, I'm like that in my everyday life as well, so opening up is not easy. :P
But for the last year I've been at my university studying Computer Science and it's been one of the best experiences of my life. It's allowed me to get over one of the worst depressions of my life, which is one of the reasons that led to me stepping down as literature CV last May. Lots of good things have happened since then, including rekindling old friendships and meeting lots of new friends along the way. Academia is challenging and rewarding, and helps me to keep my spirits up. I start classes again in a couple weeks and I couldn't be more excited!
Oh, and I've been trying to take care of my health a lot better and have been going to the gym almost daily! Counting calories, too, but that's boring. So far I've lost about 23 poun

On DA I'm involved in the administration of projecteducate, seniormentors and CRLiterature, and on the CR team I'm one of the three general photography CVs along with TanyaSimoneSimpson and Mrs-Durden. I'm th

Hello everyone! I'm Talty, your friendly Artisan Crafts CV. :) Most of what I do involves browsing the AC gallery and marveling at all the things I see! Honestly, the AC community is incredibly talented and varied, we see so many things I never imagined: dainty jewelry, fused glass furniture, photo-realistic duct tape art paintings, handmade ball-jointed dolls, hardcore functional clocks, impossibly tiny sculptures... crafters never cease to amaze me! I plan features, interviews and conte

Hi :wave: I'm Erin and I'm one of the Stock and Resources community volunteers. A lot of what I do on DeviantART is look at art, especially the stock gallery.  Stock has pretty much everything under the sun from reference images to sewing patterns. I spend a good amount of time looking for things to feature as daily deviations--resources that I think are super helpful or super cool for the community to see. I also help with planning contests, make features so stock artists get love :love:, and try to disseminate information through the community in our monthly ne
Meet Your CV: Hosagu (Street Photography)Welcome to the latest Meet Your CV interview!  I think it's best if I allow those closest to my next interviewee to introduce him.  Here are some very genuine quotes from the community:
"Goats."Yuukon
"Our dear syntax-ically challenged Street Photography volunteer is a force to be reckoned with. His loud exclamations and threats to nuke the world are second only to his passion for volunteering at DeviantArt and African goats. His time spent on a remote island, breathing in the fumes of mining dust, has loosened his mind... Allowing him the creative liberty to make sexual innuendo in every utterance he makes without actually offending anyone (or at least we think he hasn't offended anyone). Instead, he uses his enthusiasm and wish-it-would-end-ffs energy to bring the Street Photography community together to join forces as the Street Avengers."JenFruzz

And then besides that he is always full of great suggestions for the site itself, approaching the admins here with well thought out ideas, and many a recommendation for Daily Deviations or just great artists for us to shine some light on.
And if allllllll of that were not enough then there is the =DailyDeviants project that he has been behind since 2005 as well. So yes, `lazybutt is quite the opposite of his namesake and we couldn't be happier about that.

Interested in Adoptables? Not sure what they are? Never fear, it's Adoptables Week at projecteducate, and all your questions will be answered!  See what's been posted so far, and stay tuned for the rest:

Welcome to Adoptables Week!Adoptables Week
Dear members,
I'm excited to announce Adoptables week is starting today! I found myself in a bit of an unusual position, as I myself do not know anything about adoptables, which is partially why I wanted this week to happen! So many of us are confused about adoptables, yet the adoptable community is so important here on DA! I figured we could all stand to learn more about adoptables - and maybe some of you will even want to begin designing adoptables or purchasing ones! :la:
Throughout this week we will be....
Discussing how to price your adoptables with Astralseed, who by the way, helped me a lot with this week! Then we'll also be looking at an overview for newbies (like myself) of what exactly adoptables are and how they work, which will be done by Yseulta. We'll also get a handy little guide on how to purchase your first adoptable design written by finakiyomo! SinistrosePhosphate will also be offering a bit of an in depth overview of
Pricing AdoptablesAdoptables Week
Hello everyone,
Today I will be discussing how to price Adoptables. Hopefully any of you who are currently selling Adoptables, or any of you thinking about selling them will get a good feel for how to go about pricing them after reading this article.
It's no secret that there are plenty of artists who make a lot of money selling Adoptables, but I think it is worth noting that the vast majority of artists selling them do not make 1000's of dollars off of a single adoptable. Since there is such a wide range of prices for Adoptables as a whole, it's no wonder that many struggle to find the right pricing for theirs.
A while back I wrote a handy dandy article on Pricing Your Commissions and I'll be covering a lot of the same things from that article in this one since pricing art is still pricing art. However, I will also go over some pricing situations which are more Adoptable specific in this article as well.   
Before we
Adoptables for NewbiesAdoptables Week
For some, adoptables are a thing of mystery. What are they? Why are they? Should we fear them, and are they FDA-approved? For others, they are a point of contention: Who wants them? Who is buying them? Why not draw one yourself?
Whatever adoptables are, they raise a lot of questions, and for many, a lot of confusion. Really, they're a very simple concept that can give way to a lot of fun and creative opportunities. But adoptables are drawings and cannot argue their side, so that's why they hired me. I'm Yseulta, and I hope to clear up some of these mysteries! 
What Are Adoptables?
   
For something shrouded in so much mystery, adoptables are really simple. They’re just a drawing of something – usually a character design, but it can also be things like creatures, outfit designs or weapon/item designs – that you can “adopt,” or buy. 
So
A Guide to Buying Your First Adoptable DesignAdoptables Week
Introduction
Hello everyone, I'm finakiyomo and I am a guest writer for the projecteducate Adoptables Week.
In today's guide, I will give you some general hints and tips on purchasing your first adoptable design based on my own personal experiences. I really hope that this guide will make it easier for those of you who are new to the world of adoptables, and even maybe refresh your memory if you happen to be an experienced adopt consumer!
Choosing a Design
Okay, so let's say you are a newbie when it comes to adoptables (also called "adopts" for short), but on DeviantArt, there are so many designs being uploaded on a daily basis. How do you know which one to choose?
Well, the answer to that is simple, really. The character you buy is usually based on your preferences, as in, what kind of color palettes you like, what kind of creatures you love, and you might even decide that they're going to match your personality. They could be your m
Adoptables or Adaptables? Adoptables Week

Congratulations on your recent adoption! :w00t:
... OK, now what do we do?

As Yseulta wrote in their article Adoptables for Newbies, there are many, many reasons why people would want to adopt a character. And there are always rules attached. So before you start going off gallivanting on a new adventure with your new-found companion, there are a few things to make sure: 
Read the fine print first!
Depending on the type of Adoptable that catches your eye, it helps - as in any kind of business transaction - to read the fine print. Almost every Adopt Artist will have a set of general rules for the potential buyer to read through. This is a way for the artists who have put in a lot of time and energy to work on these designs to exert some control over their creations. Some artists have stricter rules than others - and the creator can sometimes exact a list of repercussions for those who infringe on the

What I do the most on DA is looking for art, either for myself for inspiration, for a future feature, or to add it to my favorites collection just because I can, or to suggest DDs to my fellow CVs. I also like interacting with the community whenever I can through comments/replies on other people's works or my own works, making forum threads, sometimes going to chats, organizing interviews and contests, working behind the scene with the CV team on different projects, helping the groups I am a contributor in whenever I can...I think I've fainted. 
Oh, and I also set DDs on occasions :iconstillmoistplz:

:iconbrennennn: As a CV, what does the community here mean to you and how does it relate to your duties?

:iconjustacapharnaum: The community is why I am still active on DA, it's as simple as that. In other words, the DA community is very important to me because without it I wouldn't be able to still be inspired, without it I wouldn't be able to keep finding new works to feature as DDs, without it I wouldn't be able to find new people to interview or to help me organize contests or other projects. But besides setting DDs, everything that I just mentioned can be done by any member of the community. The true reason why the community is so important to me is because I always found it welcoming and supportive in overall, and that's what keeps me doing what I am doing, because I want to give back to the community for all the help that it's given me throughout the years.




:iconbrennennn: What sort of values are important to being a CV and in what ways do they help you with your responsibilities?

:iconjustacapharnaum: - Organizational skills. Being a minimum organized helps, especially when you need to find a balance between your private life and your online life. It's not always easy because shit happens, but I try.

- Perseverance. Many times I got discouraged for many reasons, whether they are personal or because of some people's behavior, or because I have been working hard on something that doesn't get the recognition I wish it did or because I feel pressured, but it's important to step back, let go if needed, analyze the situation in order to improve it if possible and keep going.
- Approachable. I basically try not to scare people, except when I am decided to use silly emotes. They're all out to get me...

:iconmichellehoefener:
My name is Michelle Hoefener and I'm an artist from the United States. Media I often work in is Photoshop, pencil, Copic marker and ink. I've been an artist for as long as I can remember, and always knew it would be my career path. A lot of my earliest art was done in pencil, coloured pencil, ink and marker, and often featured horses, unicorns, fairies, dragons, centaurs, elves and origin



:iconbrennennn: When it comes to DD suggestions or finding DDs in general, what are some key things you look for?

:iconjustacapharnaum: As I mentioned in one of my DD Guidelines, I am looking for something that would "make me want to have hypothetical children with the artists."


 Résultat de recherche d'images pour "have my babies gif"

But more seriously, I try to DD works that honor best the galleries I represent whether it is in terms of technical expertise, creativity and/or general mood (this last point being more for Abstract/Surreal photography). Sometimes they are works that I actually love, and other times they are works that I think that despite not necessarily being my personal tastes deserve more exposure.

:iconbrennennn: You take care of two galleries, Macro and Abstract & Surreal photography. Does managing two photography galleries present its own challenges and how do you tackle them if so?

:iconjustacapharnaum: Managing these two photography galleries isn't challenging for me in itself, it's more the fact that they are small that is more of a challenge, they are smaller than back in the day, even. Because of how much of a niche they are now, it is tricky for me to offer some variety and regularity in the DDs I am choosing.

:iconbrennennn: What are some ways people who want to get involved in the Macro/Abstract & Surreal photography communities can go about doing so?

:iconjustacapharnaum: The simplest way is to go have a look at the works these galleries have to offer! Get inspired :eager: by darkmoon3636
The other possibilities are to favorite works they like from these galleries, comment if they want/can, make features, interview these artists, organize some contests that are related to these types of photography, write articles or be part of articles that are Macro/Abstract & Surreal related, anything that can help!

Diary of a social workerLately, I have been asking myself the same question over and over, ‘Why do I still want to be a social worker?’
I have seen people suffer.
In schools, where children are meant to learn, grow, and have fun… I see children get badly bullied because of their disabilities. Some of these children should be in specialised schools where they can receive proper support and enjoy school… But no, they are stuck in normal classes where they lose interest in learning, day after day. There are kids who even beg to stay with me, wanting me to take them away from school because they dread it so much.
In homes, where children are supposed to be loved and cared for... there are some who are being raped by their relatives, while others are being beaten up and neglected by their parents. Meanwhile, there are also children who are taken away from their families and children with such low-self esteem that they end up having morbid thoughts. This really isn’t the sort of

Cosmic distance.





:iconbrennennn: What is something that inspires you about DA and what sort of personal community initiatives are you involved in?

:iconjustacapharnaum: Besides the art (duh), the community inspires me because of how engaging it can be generally speaking, so I try to do the same. I am a rather discrete person and quite busy in real life so I am not over active on DA, but when I do something, I do it with all my heart and I try my best. I try to be involved in groups such as projecteducateTheArtistLounge and others. I try to favorite works I like whenever I can, comment on them, reply to my comments (but I admit that I am slow with that They're all out to get me...), take part of community projects/events or promote them whenever I can and that I am aware of them. As you can see, it's nothing big or extraordinary, but these are simple things that anyone can do. Nod




:iconbrennennn: Photography is a large gallery that's divided into smaller subsections, many with their own CV. How is being a CV of a smaller subsection of a larger gallery different than your typical main gallery CV?

:iconjustacapharnaum: I find it hard to make these types of photography recognized because of how specific and peculiar they are. Laughing my ass off! I have noticed over the time that a lot of people find it more pleasant and interesting to look at other types of photography than macro and abstract/surreal photography and it's just a question of preference, there's nothing wrong with that. 
The number of entries for the contests I organize for these galleries is also very limited compared to contests for bigger galleries, no matter how much it's promoted.
Moreover, even if I don't directly talk to every single macro and abstract/surreal artists around DA, I got familiar with their names rather quickly and their photography styles.
And last but not least, it's hard enough for CVs of larger galleries (photography but not only) to find works to DD on a regular basis, so imagine for CVs like me who represent niches galleries. I think I've fainted. 


:iconbrennennn: Can you shout out a couple of outstanding Macro & Abstract & Surreal photography deviants who go above and beyond and describe why they're awesome?

:iconjustacapharnaum: For macro: endprocess83, SheilaMBrinson, snomanda & borda
For abstract and surreal: Woman-of-DarkDesires, EintoeRn, Einsilbig, Mrs-White & KizukiTamura.
I find these artists amazing 
because to me their works and techniques are remarkable, creative and inspiring.

I'll give you a hint: it begins with "insa-" and ends with "-nity".
