Celebrate 16 Years of DeviantArt
DeviantArt launched 16 years ago, providing a community of artists and art appreciators with a place to call home.

I like to hear about your inner workings, but with how crazy/depressing 2017 has been I think we could all do with taking a look outside ourselves and examining bits of the world that aren't getting much attention. For that reason, this year's contest is open to more than just literature. Read on for more details!
You are being a total creep and playing with the end of his detached curl; yep, detached curl. He's weird like that.
Well, you're weird for you for creepily playing with his hair while he sleeps. But in all honesty, you're bored. You're sitting on the ground in front of his face, and his face is towards yours. You're sitting close to him so you can't keep your eyes on the curl at all times. You have no idea how it can stay detached. It freaks you out and makes you like him even more.
You blush when you think of that because you're still getting used to the idea that Lukas Bondevik is your boyfriend. You're still getting used to the fact that he completely feels the same way back, even if he has a funny way of showing it.
Truth be told, you asked him out, and he said yes, of course. You're not like one of those typical females that get so worried about friendships getting ruined or being rejected. You're assertive, dammit!
Though, honestly, most people
