A quick and kinda fun question for the group.Now i'm aware that some members of this group actually read mine and Kaolin's little comedy novel called My Life with Not Face and if you do then i'm sure you have noticed the recent string of murders going on and i would like to ask you guys just who you think the murderer is out of these already introduced characters
1. The Nurse ( he's a likely suspect )
2. Emi ( would having her legs exploded piss her off enough to kill people? )
3. Shizune ( being mute would allow her to be able to sneak up on victims and you can never trust the quiet ones )
4. Kenji ( is it possible that the lovably paranoid Kenji could be lieing to Hisao's face )
5. Hanako A.K.A not-face ( is her innocently burnt face actually hiding the face of a killer? )
6. Lilly ( could it be the blonde haired, self conscious, foreign chick who until Hisao arrived was Hanako's only friend? )
7. Rin ( could the armless artist really be the assassin that Kenji claims her to be? )
8. Other ( could it be some random never seen b
March going ons and scheduelsSurprisingly, we made our requirements on our Feb demands and then some (it's thanks to loving fans like you that drive us to work like oil czars on crack), so I think we want to do even more, can't have a boring month of nothing after all. Be expecting these works put down by the end of March.
1. Chapter Five for MLwNF (again, maybe another one if we're feeling antsy)
2. One or two more discussions for P.OC (sex and game characters get discussed so yeah, no topic is safe.)
3. Maybe another sub series (We'll have a poll on it maybe if we're still debating it by the end of the week.)
Welcome to the Moral cemetary!Hey welcome to the moral cemetary! where you're hopes and dreams and all you're favorite things go to die a slow and pain full death as we take a game or book or even sometimes just a concept with a nice setting or beloved characters then write down what we thought should happen or just destroy what people think about . (things get pretty hilarious ). as you read our Literature please feel free to tell us what you thought and even pitch ideas to us.
Fan Fiction On deviantARTGalleries Month
What Is Fan Fiction?
Everyday, we are inspired by movies, television, novels, and other forms of media. They engage our minds with a variety of stories and characters, their plights and triumphs, their everyday minutiae. Fan fiction authors are so enamored with these other worlds and their inhabitants that they must partake in the stories which have brought them so much enjoyment. They expand on the current universe, explain gaps in the narrative and delve into characters' motivations.
A good fan fiction (or fanfic) is more than simple borrowing another writer's characters and universe. The fan fiction author must immerse his or her readers in the story, make them believe it is a natural extension of the source material. Characters have their own mannerisms and quirks; each universe has its own history and rules that need to be followed. The fan fiction author must master the nuances of those characters and the world they inhabit (unless purposely writi
Lit: Characters and SettingsGallery Descriptions Month
Have you ever wandered through the Literature Gallery here on dA and wondered what the Characters & Settings sub category was for? Then ask no more. It should almost be obvious what goes in here, but let's play dumb for a minute.
The Characters & Settings gallery is NOT for your prose, poetry or scripts. Finished stories or poems don't belong here. They belong in their own categories. Here, we should find character information. Well what is character information:
Characters Sheets. Any character sheet that you've completed for your character(s) and would like to share. Blank sheets should be submitted to the Resources & Stocks > Tutorials > Writing gallery.Character Profiles or Biographies. You wrote a short description or history for your character but it won't be included in the final cut of your story.
Love dA Lit: Issue 179Welcome to the one-hundred seventy-ninth issue of Love dA Lit! Every Sunday this article will aim to promote volunteer opportunities, various resources, prompts, challenges, and workshops, as well as highlighting various contests. This is by no means a complete list of all the literature going-ons, merely a tool to help you get involved and stay informed.
Note: I'm baaaaaack. Did you miss me? After some consideration I've decided to scrap the "Looking to Help the Lit Community" section in favor of a separate article just for that purpose: Assist and Admin: Issue 1. I felt it was being too overshadowed by the rest of LdAL. However, I'll still be listing any recent calls for admin in Love dA Lit under the 'Group News' Section.

RESULTS! Micro Colour ContestAs many of you will have noticed, I’ve recently held a competition; the Micro Colour Contest. It has no doubt filled your inboxes with polls, journals, and most importantly entries! Well, here I am again, one last time in your inbox, with the results! WOO! Are you excited?
YOU SHOULD BE You can go and look at the original contest journal here:
I was completely floored by the sheer number of people who took part in the contest; 74 of you in total, giving chromeantennae and I a mind-blowing 106 entries to judge. Needless to say, it was a daunting task, but one we both really enjoyed!
I know you’re all here to find out who won, so I’ll keep this short. I was really impressed to see people thinking outside of the box in their colour choices, even though there were so many entries in a shade of blue.
One obscure colour that cropped up so often that it was worth commenting on is the shade “cosmic latte”, which neither chromeantennae or
PE Gallery Descriptions: NonfictionPE Gallery Descriptions
Literature > Prose > Nonfiction
What belongs in the nonfiction gallery?
Loosely speaking, nonfiction is anything true. This includes stories from your childhood, journalistic accounts of what's happening in the world today, and opinions, even when they're about fictional topics.
So writing about why you think Loki x horse is the best ship ever could go to the Editorial gallery, but actually writing a story about the birth of Sleipnir belongs in (fan) fiction.
The Editorial gallery is a place to submit pieces that take a definite side. A review will let the reader decide whether or not they want to look into something, but works submitted here say 'this is my opinion, and here's why it's a good opinion.' A persuasive essay can be an editorial, too.Academic Essays is pretty self-expl
Assist and Admin: Issue 1Ever thought about creating your own Lit group? STOP RIGHT THERE. You may not need to! There could already be a group that is doing the EXACT thing you want to do. Before you touch that 'Create a Group' button, check here to see if you can be a part of an admin team. You have the added benifit of already having a team around you. How cool is that?!
I'll be posting this monthly and weeding things out quicker than I did with Love dA Lit, I want this is be as up-to-date as possible!
If you know of a group, or run a group, that needs administrative assistance send me a note or leave a comment below.
ezradeacon has a fantastic list of Lit Groups in Need if you can't find what you're looking for here.

Micro Colour Contest Top 10 FeatureHey everybody! As some of you may know I was recently a judge of one of my best friends’ contests that was being held over the past few weeks! And for those that do not know, it was Lissomer’s ‘Micro Colour Contest!’ So, naturally, as we went through each entry and deliberated where they all stood, there were 10 very particular deviations outside of the top 5 placers that were truly astounding. So good that we couldn’t possibly NOT recognize them in some way. So without further ado, here are our top 10 entries:
lilac by anobrain
We really loved the imagery and language of this piece, they create a lovely stillness that is delightful to read. It flows so smoothly off the tongue and really makes for a wonderful read from start to finish.

We really loved how Mel structured this piece and
Works to come near the middle(or end) of the monthAs Febuary comes to a close: let us tell you our goals for the works to be completed at the end of the month:
1. Chapter Three of MLwNF will be a definite. (and maybe chapter four too if asshats give my bro his internet)
2. Chapter Eight of the Chevlar Files. (It's coming together as we speak.)
3. A new mini series that discusses the "concepts" part of our goal to demoralize things others may hold dear. (two-three buddies who work as waiters have semi intelligent discussion while basically degrading diners of their place of business in a classic "Clerks" type of fashion, but with our own twists thrown in it.)
AndromedaAmongst the darkened skies
Brightened by only starlight
Field & Sea.
Gravity is only an afterthought
Hilltops become ladders into the sky while
Inferior planets stare down upon the Earth
Jealous of such simplicity yet contemplating grandeur.
Keppler only thought of science
Linear, elliptical, movement…
Mythology had no such thoughts
Neptune & Nebulas both inhabit space
Orbiting across the lonely darkness
Probably never worried about mundane things
Questioning their existence
Right now or for all eternity such as us.
Shooting stars make us joyful while
Terminator is an otherworldly spectacle
Unknown to all those hidden in their houses
Various stars await us outside
Waiting to play like we did before
Xenagogue & inviting
Youthful but ancient curiosities.
Zenith induced euphoria continues until daylight…
dead dog julyI.
the summer heat lays limp in the city’s lap,
breathing long oppressive breaths.
it does not even lift its lolling head
to bark out hoarse indignancy
when a strange man brings the mail.
there might be heavy rain today,
brought by some swollen, murmuring cloud.
the world will whirl and howl,
then settle down,
to die a little more.
o, quickly, love,
press your back against the wall in fear
as the universe spreads her arms and
shuts her eyes
and starts to summon the end of all things.
come with me
to the place of windows full of speechless afternoon
hot windy whispers of half-formed solutions and resolutions,
sweltering sunlit meadows we’ll wander and then forget.
o quickly, love,
let’s to the season of forgetting
and unwind all of our harshest memories
and fill the universe’s mouth
with mute cotton.
i’ll whisper these words to you some evening
with all my exigency in the hand i rest on your arm—
Keep in Touch!
