dA Guide: Text Formatting
This is just a quick text formatting guide for dA. My goal was to make a simple html guide for easy reference.  Please PAY ATTENTION to where the codes WILL and WILL NOT work!  (Certain codes won't work in comments and deviation descriptions, no matter how hard you try.)  :'D
I provided "working examples," which might make the codes easier to understand because you can see them in action. (Keep in mind that when you type html tags, the effects won't be visible until AFTER you hit "Preview" on your comment, journal, etc. I only made them visible for the purpose of demonstration.) Enjoy!!!

The following codes can be used in
comments, deviation descriptions, journals, and profile page widgets.

This will make bold text.
This will also make bold text.
This will make italicized text.

Character Profile Outline
Okay, before anybody starts to think this is some weird idea, let me explain.
For anyone who knows how to write (and I mean, REALLY knows how to write), you understand that a good story has everything written out on paper first.  You know, stuff like Outlines, Plot Triangles, Character Profiles.  This might be of a challenge to some of you and tie you down, but unless you are capable of keeping every piece of information in your mind, this is a good resource to fall back on.  If you do not need this, then fine—you aren’t required to use it.  According to Science Fiction Writers of America, do character sketches and plot summaries but “do not let yourself be locked in by your planning documents.”
In time, I will devise a website that will help more than just creating your character.  On said site, I will post other outlines that will help YOU with YOUR writing, along with some very useful information.

Possessive Instinct (Kaname Kuran x Reader)
The breeze that ruffled your (h/c) hair was warm, and you sighed up at the stars as you sat uncomfortably on the cold stone balcony. It had been a few hours since the Night Class had departed for their night schooling, leaving you wondering why once again.
Why were you the only person in the Moon Dorms that was not a part of the Night Class? Why were you placed into dorms with people you hardly ever saw; when you were in class they were asleep, and vice versa?
It was all confusing to you, but you just remained silent and went with it- it was the Chairman's request after all, who were you to question his choice? You were just the new girl.
You had pored over these thoughts for the past month, never reaching an answer. Every time you had decided to confront the leader of the dorm, Kaname Kuran, your resolve had withered under his gaze. You admitted that you were attracted the boy, but there was something about him- about all the Night Class- that was

*Let Her Go* Nazi!Germany X Reader
(( Comment please! This is a songfic. Also it's better if you listen to the song during or (if you can't listen and read) before you read. Let Her Go by Passenger if you don't already know.))
Well you only need the light when it's burning low
Only miss the sun when it starts to snow
Only know you love her when you let her go
Only know you've been high when you're feeling low
Only hate the road when you're missing home
Only know you love her when you let her go

"You're so blind Ludwig! People are DYING!" (Name) yelled at her husband for the hundredth time. What happened to him? To THEM? He had been so kind, so loving. Now he was a monster. Proudly showing off the red piece of death fabric tied around his bicep. They were the perfect couple. Walking their dogs in the park, sharing ice cream, now they did nothing but fight. " For a better tomorrow! Don't you understand woman!? You're the blind one! Don't you see how wonderful this could be for us!? For the world! Who cares if a f

How to Submit Literature on DeviantArt (3 methods)
If you want to submit literature on DeviantArt, you have three choices:
(1) submit it directly through dA through "submit art"
(2) submit with a .pdf (I tried submitting with a Word doc and it didn't work like it should).
(3) submit it through Sta.shWriter
If you choose to directly submit it through "Submit Art", it's pretty simple (I know this looks like a lot of steps, but they're necessary to make this easy):
Hover over the "Submit" link at the top of your DeviantArt page. This will give you the option of "Submit Art" or "Stash" as your first 2 options. Select "Submit Art". This will give you a "Submission Screen". You have the option of clicking on "Choose a file to upload" or dragging and dropping a document onto the screen where it says "drag and drop your art here". If you use these options, you can use a Word document, but like I said, it doesn't work like it should. You must add a preview pic and your readers will only be able to see the preview pic, and in order

Huge character profile of completeness TEMPLATE
Huge character profile of completeness
    This character profile template was made by compiling a whole lot of templates made by other artists that I felt were not specific enough and adding many more questions to make everything more specific. The links are in the description, please visit their versions too. This profile is ginormous, not every question may be relevant to your character. The main goal is to have a profile that is as complete as it can get, so not every question will need to be filled in. Add and remove as is needed as there's only few characters every question is relevant for. If you think questions should be added, comment and suggest! There also exists a html file on pastebin for mobile users which can be found here.

Alucard and Child!reader: The Tall Man
It was the year you turned twelve and the leaves were falling that the tall man came, as though a Godsend.
Everyone was talking witchcraft in the village. The Widow Ashe had been missing for almost a week now and though hunting parties were sent out many times to search for her nothing was ever found. The minister of your small village preached long, arduous sermons about the sins of the fathers and demons of hell coming in the rapture to collect the souls of the dammed. Of course your parents were convinced it was all because of your idle nature and lashed out at you so frequently that for a time you were afraid to even sleep for fear of being idle.
Then the children of the town began to complain that a tall man with eyes red as the Devil’s watched them from outside their windows as they lay to sleep. Though many tried to remedy this with blessings and heavy curtains, it did nothing to deter their nighttime visitor.
“Why must you sin so often?” your father would bell

Hypothermia (Dean x Reader)
Hypothermia (Dean x Reader)
"(Name) look out!"
You spun around at the sound of Dean's voice, just in time to get punched in the stomach with enough force to send you flying. Your back slammed into a tree, sending snow and pine needles tumbling down onto you. You landed in a heap in a snowdrift, gasping for air.
"(Name)!" You heard Sam yell from somewhere in front of you, followed by the sound of a gunshot.
You groaned, pushing yourself to your feet just as Dean slid to a stop beside you.
"Are you okay?" He asked, grabbing your arms.
You shrugged him off, nodding. "I'm fine. What are you doing kneeling in the snow? You're going to freeze."
He laughed, helping you to your feet. "I'm too hot to freeze." He smirked, brushing snow off his jeans.
You smacked the back of his head, grabbing Ruby's knife from the back of your pants and throwing it to your right without taking your eyes off him. "You say that now, but you've never felt a Canadian winter before."
The demon Sam was wrestling with

you open your heart
and let in the universe -

      the fabric of humankind is a connection

                  we are not lonely souls
      we are, in fact, determined to do better
          and touch the hearts that are around us,
                  because who we are is defined
     not but the lining in our pockets
                  but the love we put in each other's hands
