How to Roleplay in the dA DangerverseMany people seem to be confused about roleplaying in the dA Dangerverse, so here are instructions on joining and information about the universe, as well as advice on what to do and what not to do.
1. Create a deviantART account for your character. (You can roleplay with your main account, but most people prefer to keep their main account and roleplaying separate.)
2. Now it's time to find other players. Find one roleplayer and check their watch list, which should be located on their page. (If it's not, find another player.) Most RP accounts watch other RP accounts. Unlike Tumblr or Twitter, where you have hundreds of roleplayers and dozens of different groups, dA has just one big Dangerverse.
At the time of writing this, you can find many roleplayers at #KilljoyRoleplayers.
To introduce yourself, watch as many active Dangerverse RPers as possible. Players are always glad to see a new
FotoFriday: 1993Welcome to FotoFriday at #CRLiterature #7!
We brought FotoFriday back by popular request a few months ago. Last week, ^neurotype featured this image as a prompt:
Here are the pieces this image inspired:
Please share your thoughts and comments (and even favorite ). They've posted their work for the world to see, and we thank them for getting involved!
How does FotoFriday Work?
Every other Friday we will post a photograph from a deviant's gallery that we find intriguing and interesting. Using this photograph as a prompt, you are encouraged to write something—anything—based on it. It doesn't matter what form of writing, how much you write or even whether you end up with a complete piece—this is all about the prompt and what it inspires!
The photograph is meant as i
Discussion: Writing Believable Characters Just added some member-suggested question~
What are your options on mixing species in a comic? Should it all be one species, or should you mix it? (Say, wolf talking to birds and such rather then just wolf talking to wolf.)
What do you find to be the most overused main character design?
What do you think constitutes a well-rounded character?
What are and are not Mary Sue qualities, to you?
What are your pet-peeves regarding characters or certain types of characters?
How much do characters matter to you?
Do you prefer character-driven stories, or do you care not for characters and prefer a plot-driven story? (Cause, really, it's not always about character development, especially in short stories.)
Any tropes you want to share?
And whatever else might occur to someone on the subject...
Collaboration ProjectHello Folks
I thought it was about time to announce some sort of official activity. But since I can't afford prizes it won't be a contest. Instead I thought that it would be great to manage some sort of Collaboration Project. That means that you will create a picture together with someone else who possibly has a totally different style - the pairs are built randomly so if you get someone with a similar style or the same it's your luck
This works as follows:
You must be a member of this group.
Write a note to the GROUP titled "Art Trade Project" to sign up.
We need an even number of participants so nobody ends up alone.
The SignUp will run one week counting from this journal.
The selection will be random - you CAN'T chose your partner.
The pairs will be listed in this blog (so be sure to watch the blog or to stop by regularly)!
From the moment the pairs are posted you will have 2 weeks to create yo

Teen victims, NEED HELP NOW!As many of you know, I work for StreetLightUSA
A non-profit lifehouse for survivors of sex trafficking, as well as sexual exploitation.
These girls have been through hell, and we are one of the few organizations out there that actually has beds for them. When they come to StreetLight, their life begins! They get school, their own bed, a bedroom, clothes, shampoo, everything they need! They have "house moms" rather than caretakers. These are women who do act as their mothers and cook for them, help them with their school assignments, teach them things, watch movies with them, play games...
But we want to do more for them. We NEED to do more. All you have to do is vote, there is a link in there to the voting page: http://dmlcompetition.net/project/summer-technology-camp-and-digital-learning-event
That's honestly all we need, we have everything else set up for it. We have professionals willing to teach the lessons, we
Today we will have a different journal!Today let's talk about knowledge...
Do you think knowledge needs a REVOLUTION?
The purpose of this article is to spread the notion and rise the awareness among all creative people around the world about the noosfeer (in English, noosphere), a concept that according to the tough of Vladimir Vernadsky and Teilhard de Chardin, denotes the "sphere of human thought"
What is noosfeer?
Theihard used to refers the noosfeer in relation to thought, to the human sphere, the sphere of reflection, conscious invention and innovation. At the universe level is analogous to the thinking, the product of the cerebral cortex in humans. Also defined as the planetar

To Praise Life:6Hang on. Sta.sh totally destroyed it when I saved. I'll get it back on once the problem is resolved.
Have some points to spare?Part of my goal as Community Volunteer, is to offer you fun, challenging and interesting activities, projects and contest to participate. These activities will be open for everyone, regardless of age, location, level of skill or color hair.
In the following weeks, I intend to start a few of these projects, and as an incentive for the community to participate, (because I know you! you greedy bunch!) I plan to offer some prizes for grabs; points, premium memberships, journal features, nude pics, etc. Of course, most of these prizes will come out of my own pocket but unfortunately, I'm not rich! so I can't offer much on my own.
And here is where you come in!
I'm calling you, the community, to donate some points if you have them to spare. 10 points don't seem like much, but if 10 people donated 10 points each, we have... wait.. oh yeah! 100! So it doesn't matter the quantity, your donations will always be appreciated.
The 100% of the points donated will go towards activities and contests h

There are also two open adopts, btw~

+ Breeding Contract for the fae is finally up! I found a way around dA's glitch. The teapups' rules will be similar to the fae, in case anyone's wondering. Anywho, you may either start asking questions, requesting geno interpretations, coloring up your trial litters, or wait until I've got the dew pattern sheet up...
EDIT:: Just realized the fae's official name in the import sheets was flipped. That's embarrassing |D; ::EDIT+
Sorry about the spam, folks! I was trying

Fae Breeding Contract Before using a license, read the rules in the Artist Comment and re-read the Fae Ownership Contract and agree to the terms. If you disagree, you may not accept the license, may not create pedigreed fae, and may not home the trial litter pups.
These rules are subject to change. Breeders must adhere to the latest terms.
Even if you are licensed, if there is something wrong with a following litter, it must be fixed.
Licenses may be revoked at any time at =PaintedCricket's digression.
Licenses are uploaded to and maintained on ~FRivArt's scraps.
Licenses are given to individuals (it will have your username), not co-owned kennels, though the litter would obviously be born to the kennel. For all individuals to become licensed, either split the trial litter or each creates their own.
Licenses are required for any breeding, even one-time breedings, priv
