Cake- Intentionally Awful Emo Poetry for neurotype
it sits in the freezer as the celebration dies down
it will not be eaten for a long time
it has been already eaten
but with the remaining pieces
it sits alone in the frozen hellscape
right next to the peas that won't ever be eaten
it will have to wait one year
before it will ever come into contact
with any life form
but until that time
it waits endlessly
this is how my heart feels
The Illusion of PeaceThe dust clears.
The clouds dissipate.
Everything is out in the open.
Emotions fly like words,
but nothing resolves.
It is as if the clarity
hurts more than the illusion of peace.
^Neurotype Interview^neurotype is one of our Community Volunteers for the Literature gallery!
I've compiled a short list of both my questions (and the ones from the poll) into a simplistic interview! Enjoy!
-When did you start writing?
When I was like six? It was for school. I drew comics before that, though.
-If you could change one feature for the better (or add your own) relating to the Literature Category, what would it be?
A redirect to Fan Fiction. No more miscats!
-Who's your favorite writer on deviantART?
Oh jeez, don't make me pick one! (Even with published authors, I'm more likely to pick specific stuff rather than any individual author.) But as far as individual stuff goes, `Memnalar has produced some of my favorite pieces. Not to mention one of the best annual contests everrrrr. EVER.
-What style of writing do you wish you were more skilled at?
Romantic fiction, ideally for the YA+ crowd. Or thrillers.
Slinging Pens with =SingingFlamesToday we're sitting down with fanfiction author and awesome deviant :iconsingingflames: (because what weirdo websurfs standing up?). Her entry into the Crossovers Contest came in first place and she is quickly making a name for herself in the deviantART community as a whole.
What are your favorite fandoms to write for?
I love writing for Transformers. Almost all of my fan fictions are set in the Transformers universe. I also truly enjoyed my foray into the Batman fandom.
What is it about these fandoms that inspires you? I'm a sucker for a well-defined and thought out antagonist. Give me interesting bad guys, and I'm sold. Both of those fandoms have intriguing antagonists. I love exploring their motivations and how they got where they are. In almost all of the Transformers continuities, my favorite characters have been amongst the Decepticons (the antagonists, for those unfamiliar with the fandom). And I've always beli
'dA Related shouldn't get DDs'Over my term as the deviantART Related volunteer (and even way before that) I've noticed that dA Related Daily Deviations tend to get some hate.
Past dA Related volunteers have always included what category each Daily Deviation they feature is in hoping it would reduce the amount of "wtf is this?" comments.
Here are some topics that I know have been addressed endlessly by various people, past and present, from the Community Relations team:
What is a Daily Deviation?
A daily deviation is a feature of a submission. Please note that 'masterpiece', 'artwork' and other words are not mentioned in that particular FAQ.
Another thing that is often misunderstood is the face that there is a volunteer for most galleries on deviantART. I can't feature from Digital Art, Traditional Art, Literature, Photography, etc; only from deviantART Related. In most cases, volunteers can only feature from one parent or sub gallery.
The Price Cap For Commissions Has Been Raised!One of the most common requests we received upon launching Commissions was to raise the price cap to make it higher than 4,000 Points. As of today, the price limit when setting up Commissions has been raised from 4,000 Points to 8,000 Points.
We're excited to see the increased usage of the Commissions platform and the wide variety of work that artists have been offering. With this increased limit, we're hoping to give artists more flexibility with the types of Commissions they offer, and more importantly, allow artists to earn more for their high-quality creations!

a hospital bird with soot in her lungsshe slept through a car crash
that almost killed her,
through whitewhite walls
where her lover dies
nobody thought she'd make it
but she woke up a few months later
with flowers in her hair
and ash in her airway
trying to remember how to start all over
but forgetting to remember how to live.
fall slipped from her open eyes
and winter crawled in for a long hibernation
to her the clouds looked sick
and pale like they might
let everything inside them out,
but she opened up wide instead,
spilling blood where there was none to be spilled.
her heart slipped down the street
and with unsteady hands
she stitched in a bird and cut off its wings.
Keep in Touch!
^Nyx-Valentine arrived in our community and started whipping everyone into a frenzy with her relentless desire to bring the Artistic Nude and Fetish galleries to the fore. 9 years later, and it's safe to say that Nyx is not only a leader as a photographer in these galleries, but she has also established herself as a much saught after model. ^...
