Literature
settle
They traveled out east 
at the edge of the sink
while the sun crept west 
toward the soft harbor lights.
They dripped from the ceiling 
like heavy-love dreams.
And hid from the moonlight
as she growled like the sea.
They spun 'round your fingers 
and tusseled your hair.
Coiled on paper 
and carried conversations… 

There were always shadows here, darling.
Tired beautiful cold things that filled the bed.
Froze the sheets, 
and threw open the windows.
They don't breathe in slumber 
but nest like memories…
… 
I think they loved you more than I did.

too (iso)late(d)
touch-starved waistlines
recollect memories in old text messages
and incomplete composition notebooks
they argue with themselves
about self-preservation in a predatory
wilderness: the privacy of homes
and thick bedroom walls
with birds calling them from hiding spots
amongst the fear and hope
unfounded and unfound
& steady hands let go of their centers
to grip reluctance in pens
recording the songs of bluebirds
outside, outside, outside
as growth sets in with resignation smiles

The Mute King and His Songbird, Part 1
       It was when the castle started groaning that he realized all was lost.
       Amidst the chaos, Alastair Ehn struck down his opponent with his cane and released a warning snarl at his pursuers. The armored men, startled by his animalistic expression, flinched – and that was all the time the crippled king needed.
       Briefly flicking liquid scarlet from his sword, Alastair returned the blade to his cane and swiftly limped down the hall, only one person on his mind. The ominous moans of his home echoed around him, becoming louder and louder with each deafening, explosive shell that impacted against its ancient walls. A high-pitched whistling demanded his attention, and Alastair swiftly ducked down against the side of the wide hall, bringing his tattered cloak over him. Not a second later, the entire world seemed to jump. Light and flame erupted behind him, fragmented stone and debris

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!"

Another day, another macro artist: SBartek
"My name is Bartłomiej Skrzypek. I’m an amateur photographer who has learned everything by himself. It’s my hobby for almost two years, but I started reading about it a few years earlier. I even have my own blog. My specialty is mainly macro photography, so we can say that I'm helping our smallest friends to show their beauty. For me, macro photography is a whole separate world that consists not only of animals but also plants or the whole environment."

  
 

"For as long as I remember, I liked to walk in the forest. I was fascinated with plants, animals, how they live there, and with age this feeling hasn't passed. Moreover, I wanted to know what life looks like when you are as small as an ant. Over time, I just wanted to show other people how I see the world, show them my wo

Deviousness Award

Deviousness Award
When asked, what is the most ironic user name you have seen on this site, one name jumps to mind for a lot of people. And that would be `lazybutt Seemingly everywhere and anywhere all at once giving critiques, offering advice and helping newcomers is all in a days work for him.
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.

projecteducate is hosting a new ALL MEDIUMS contest (meaning any genre of art can qualify!) with the theme of: "where you would like your life to be in 10 years." Check it out if you're feeling particularly inspired. :)

All Mediums Contest: 10 years from nowDear members,
projecteducate is happy to announce yet another contest that is open to all art mediums! This time around our prompt is related to the recent 18th Birthday of DeviantArt! Find out more by reading all the information below:
The Prompt:
No matter how old we are, we all have goals, aspirations and visions for our future. For this contest, I'd like you to reflect on where you would like your life to be in 10 years. I want you to create a piece of art that somewhat represents you and your life in ten years. It does not need to be in an obvious way, for example it doesn't need to be a portrait of you in the future, or a drawing of your future mansion, or anything like that. It could be something more profound, like perhaps a painting representing what you will have accomplished, or a sculpture of a lotus flower to represent the spiritual awakening you hope to have gone through. What I'm saying is, there are many ways to approach this theme, and it does not
