O ultimo suspiro do deus criadorContemplem a minha desgraça: após dar vida a estas criaturas feitas à minha imagem e semelhança, sou relegado a figuras de porcelana escondidas nas sombras de templos frios, ou a estátuas de calcário decaindo em pó fino que o vento aos poucos leva.
Mal agradecidos. Se estas velhas mãos ainda possuíssem uma fração da força que tinham quando com elas moldei as montanhas, esmagava-lhes as cidades entre os dedos, como se de apenas curiosas e minúsculas formações de areia se tratassem.
Mas não. Afundo-me agora, lentamente, no barro da Terra. De braços erguidos ao Universo estrelado vos rogo: salvem-me da morte, filhos meus que brilham, que não me desiludem! Em breve não serei mais que a terra disforme que estes meus outros pisam e exploram para a transformar em símbolos que me invocam.
End of the Universe: Chapter 1Chapter 1- A Dead World
Fire. Fire and screaming. Every night, when I close my eyes, that’s all I see. The same nightmare, surrounded by terrified people, running for their lives from chaos and destruction. Sometimes, I see my parents in the crowd, or friends I’ve known forever, all of us fleeing our village. Other times, it’s strangers and I’m caught up in the rush as they barrel toward the capital’s gate, hoping that the mighty walls and tall towers meant to protect them don’t crumble and bury them in a pile of rubble.
Always, I’m focused on moving forward. There’s nothing ahead but a desolate wasteland of trees burnt to ash, craggy valleys that used to be rivers and lakes, and a blood-red sky. I don’t pay attention to the smell of bodies engulfed in flames or the desperate cries of people pleading for mercy. Anyone who falls and isn’t trampled is left behind for the inevitable.
Every time, I’m always the last o
End of the Universe: Chapter 2Chapter 2- One-Way Trip
Gardon and I ran as fast as our feet could carry us. And when that wasn’t fast enough and he started to slow down, I lassoed him in a green glow that surrounded us and tethered us together. Then I shot forward, through the halls and up the ladders, dragging him behind me. All the while, the roar grew closer, chilling my blood even in the wasteland heat.
Gardon reported to Nega. “We got a problem.”
Nega seemed to pick up on it before he even explained further. “Then get out of there.”
When we stumbled to the hole where we first entered the ship, we paused. The booming cries pulsed through the ship’s hull, shaking the floor, and seemed to come from all around us. I poked my head outside, searching the skies, but finding nothing. The buggy was right there. We could make a break for it.
But then Gardon and I realized something. The wind had died down. It was silent, like the eye of a storm, and sand no longer blurred our vi

Judy bounded to the parking lot packed to the brim with cars and concert goers leaving the stadium, all the while still dancing and humming Gazelle’s songs to herself. A few people on the way out caught her dancing, joined in for a moment or two with her, bumping booties and waving arms in sync, then found their car and left. Nick eventually caught up to her at their car and they climbed in.
“That was amazing!” she said, relaxing in her seat as they left the parking lot. “Thanks for taking me.”
“Anytime, Carrots,” he said, taking the exit back to the heart of Zootopia. “I figured you’d like it. You’re always playing that one song over and over and over on patrol.”
She shrugged and pecked his cheek. He froze up momentarily. “I appreciate it. Thanks for buying the tickets.”
She waited a few moments, drumming her thighs to the song’s beat in her mind.
"C'mon, Ames!" Sonic whined. "At least gimme a hint!" The tantalizing aroma was driving him wild. His mouth refused to cease salivating until the source of the smell was discovered and polished off in his typical fashion. Yet his normally keen senses had failed the blue hedgehog, leaving him to plead with the obstinate girl before him.
The girl was rather enjoying the display. Here she had the man of her dreams almost on his knees before her. So far, everything was playing out perfectly like she had planned: she had invited Sonic over for chili dogs, had hidden them well, and he had ransacked the housealmost tempted to tear everything apartin search for the elusive delicacy. Yet she was cautious not to celebrate an early victory. This new idea of a hint intrigued her. She thought that she might be able to weasel something out of him after all.
"Alright," she said slowly, forcing a smile to stay off her face. "I'll tell you on one condition." She paused, waiting
This group has quality standards (medium to high quality). Meaning we won’t accept any monkey’s foot scribble. Except if it’s done by an actual monkey’s foot – we shall seriously ponder in that case.
We only accept written works in English and Portuguese. Sadly we cannot accept works in other languagens since we don't understand them. We apologize for that.
Hop on in! Anyone can become a member. Join requests are automatically approved.
Members can submit up to 3 deviations per week. So mind the calendar.
Submitted deviations will be approved or not by the admin.
If your work was declined, you may go ahead and politely ask the reason. We will do the best we can to answer! Rude people will be kindly told to plant cabbages. Those who don’t like the idea of seeing their works declined, can simply Watch the group. Although that seems kind of boring.
Every artwork must follow DA rules.
We do not accept rude people, so be polite to everyone. I believe no threat is needed, we’re all civilized here. Purportedly.
Art theft, tracing or any other kind of copyright infringement is absolutely forbidden and we will block and report the user.
Members may not submit works into the Favourites (but feel free to submit other people's works if you feel like it, but on the Gallery). Basically, we don't see the need to have the Favourites when we already have the Gallery, and our main focus is on the gallery works
