Journal Entry: Sat Jun 26, 2010, 4:48 PM
I have been lazy of late in supporting my deviant friends and many cool watchers, so....

Read the rules!
1. Be one of the first 10 people commenting on this journal entry, and I will add you to my list of featured peeps.

2. For each of those 10 people I will put their icon and 3 deviations I like from their gallery on the list.

3. If I feature you, you'll have to do the same in your journal, putting me on the first place.

FEATURED PEEPS
1. Since I stole this from :icondavidanaandrake: she's on first. Check out the many talents of this wonderful artiste!

2. :iconsub3r3: is one of my earliest watchers--and an incredible writer. Poetry, short stories, thought-provoking essays, you will find something to whet your creative soul.

3. Love great photography? Visit :iconintergrativeone: Some of her photos look like masterwork paintings.

4. Next up is :iconsiobhan68: --now HERE is an interesting artist. I'll let her varied talents speak for themselves...
What now? by Siobhan68 Sophie by Siobhan68 Sexy Liliana by Siobhan68

5. Oooo... one of my favorite graphic novel illustrators commented! Take a long look at :iconneurotic-elf: How does one make an innocent child look so damn sinister?

6. He was also one of my earliest watchers, and after all these years I've not grown tired of the magic in his words. Sample :iconscarlatti:

Mature Content

EnrapturePole-swung glittered hair
Body bared, just for you (all)
Wants my attention
She'd be my lover
In five minute increments
At a variable rate
My eyes on the stage
Not seeing the garish show
My mind streets away
Blonde girl palming chin
Bright eyed, nodding at boyfriend
God I want that look


7. And now something from a more recent watcher: :iconhiyori33: What fun! I dare one of you to make that dress!!!

8. It is my pleasure to feature one of the Sisters in Ink... :iconleoniesaintevire:. She is a romance writer extraordinare!
Leonie of SIONLY
A carriage sweeps up the winding lane, coming to a halt before the ancient wrought iron gates marked with a simple plaque: SIONLY.  The perfectly matched blacks stomp and toss their fine heads, sweat glistening off their inky hides as the driver holds them at a stand still. A liveried postillion jumps down to open the door.
A tall, elegantly black clad figure emerges from within the darkness of the carriage. Not pausing to look back at the slight youthful figure following closely behind him, Jack moves toward the iron gate, pushing it open with one hand and stepping into the lush garden within. He pauses for a moment, his attention turned toward the slender youth in tattered black velvet. The boy lingers on the threshold of the garden, gazing in amazement at the breathtaking beauty suddenly surrounding him. A pair of large violet-blue eyes, gleaming beneath the shadow of a ragged cap, takes in every detail.
Jack smiles to the boy. “Please feel at ease here.”

First GlimpseThe rain, having spent all it's efforts to make him cold and miserable, left the Texan shivering as he walked past the front windows of the merchants' shops in the small Jersey town.  Puddles spotted the sidewalks, muddying the street. Dalton kept his head down, his collar turned up against the chill.
It was then he heard the sound.  A soft tapping, measured and slow, a sound that would haunt him the rest of his days. His eyes caught sight of the matching spiked heels, buckled delicately at her ankles, stepping first one, then the other.. over and over...one in front of the other as she walked towards him.
The chill of the rain, and his soaked leather coat were forgotten...no longer a concern as he raised his eyes.  The buckles at her ankles, against the soft sheer stockings, carried his gaze up her well shaped calves to glimpses of soft thighs as teasing lifts of the wind flirted with her skirt.
    
Emerald silk, clinging to each slen
   Wooden Crates
It was a night not unlike many other nights.  Jeb sat watchful, his hands idle upon the oars of his skiff, while aboard the Green Myst, wooden crates were hoisted from below decks and loaded onto similar waiting skiffs. Methodically, one after one, the ship disgorged its cargo. (Cargo: loosely defined as the value of coin collected by the simple moving of these crates from the Green Myst to the shoreline.) Horse drawn wagons waited upon the banks to carry the cargo to warehouses on the wrong side of Savannah where the wooden crates were burned, the contents safely inventoried.
Jeb could not help but notice the name burned in heavy black ink on the side of the rough crates: TALBOT.  
Until tonight, he had always felt a smug satisfaction when Talbot property was looted from the high seas.  Never in his past had he given a second thought to this process. Talbot cargo was fair game.  But now...something was different. Something would have to change.


9. :iconsarraphine: slips in under the wire at #9. She's not getting many watchers lately. Show her some dA love please.

But of course. A lot of so called popular writers are shams. Look closely at their novels and you see lots of holes. It's all in the presentation. Lol.

Well, I don't know if I'm still on your list since little smurfette was handling your account in the very beginning {I am your second official watcher anyway :) } of it all, but you've always been on mine and I've followed your work closely :)

Regardless, I just felt the need to comment, just for all times sake :)
