:bulletblue: If either party (writer/criticizer) is rude, I want you to contact the Admin and they'll deal with it.

:bulletblue: We are accepting Admins so if you are interested, Note NotenSMSK!

:bulletblue: all the regular dA rules apply

:bulletred: Here is the Link to the present unappreciated feature!…

Folder information:

:bulletyellow: GiD / DiD / Mature; Guy or Damsel in Distress. This means somebody is in peril.
I think "mature" speaks for itself really.

:bulletyellow: Fanfic: for fictions with character created by somebody else
:bulletyellow: The one Shot folders are for stories that only have the 1 part that you want to submit
:bulletyellow: Chapter stories folders are for when you have written/are writing a piece that consists out more then 1 piece.
:bulletyellow: Poetry is where all the poems and the like go.

:bulletyellow: Featured is the folder where a work we feel should be appreciated, goes

:bulletpurple:If you have any questions, suggestion or issues please don't hesitate to let us know :bulletpurple:
The feature for the month of February is up!

So, the works for this month are:


Life in the establishment
is making graffiti
you hope nobody notices.
My ears felt to be two feet from my shoulders.
The ground shifted beneath my feet
as I walked down the highway.
Pine trees drove their cars down the street
and honked at me.
My head fell off and I scrambled around to pick it up.
Meanwhile, cars swerved around me,
barely missing me.
As I put my head back on,
I looked at the green sign in the distance.
It had a left arrow and “DOWNTOWN” in bold letters.
Stumbling across the highway,
there was my fumbling little body,
trying to find out where I was.
I peeked over the guard rail and saw
a mile long cliff leading downtown.
My little body tripped back across the highway
and jumped the back of a truck headed in that direction.
The car drove down a steep hill,
I saw beyond the pine tree,
whose head was sticking through the sun roof.
The sun cast elaborate shadows across my face,
and the highway burned into my eyes.


A Soul Adrift: Ch. 1
Ever since we decided as a group last night to spend the day cruising around on the water, I'd been totally looking forward to it, because it's something I'd never done before!  When I went home this morning to pack a bag of belongings for the trip, I only had the faintest of ideas on what to bring, so I thought "better safe than sorry" and probably stuffed more things in my pink suitcase than I really needed, but at least I knew I'd make a splash with three of the cutest summer outfits I owned!  It was too bad Sonic wasn't nearly as excited about this as I was -- I could tell by the way he was dragging his feet as we followed Tails down to the marina and going around a corner as we located the yacht Tails had rented for the trip.  I took one look at it and was instantly mesmerized: it was long and streamlined, and its blue-and-white paint job glistened in the afternoon sun.  Even the boat's name, "For Sail By Owner", was cute!  It had a mostly f


(There are more in the group, but for now, these are the ones which have had limited exposure thus far, and require comments I also understand that its below the standards of this group as well, but more submissions to this group would be helpful in remedying this problem. Those will be immediately added so as to give more fodder for commentary)

And well, the rules:

Now, the rules for submission are as follows:
* One critique allows you to submit one deviations, two critiques allows you to submit three deviations and three critiques or more allows you to submit five deviations for the whole month.
* You have to link/thumb the work which you have provided a critique on, to this journal.
* Number of deviations featured is based on how many critiques are given – they are equal to the number of critiques – one up till three.
It is not compulsory but will be appreciated if you mention “This critique is on behalf of TheCritiquables” in your critique.

If you have any further questions, do ask – we will update them.

Happy submitting :) Cheers.

1) Go here:  Unappreciated Works Feature #17 (new format)hi everyone :wave:
I do sincerely apologize for the temporary closing of the submissions folder. :raincloud: Really, really sorry for the inconvenience.
The new feature for the month of June is up.
And this time with some restructuring as well as a new layout that might be easier for everyone to follow :dummy:
*people's response*
So, the works for the month of June are:



The LAFTAW Agents - Alternative Character Intros by bookloverblue The LAFTAW Agents - The Hunt is On by bookloverblue
Spelunking by Fundelstein Masquerade by Fundelstein There's Lots of Splendor in Serkonos by Fundelstein
UNFINISHED: Night by mjponso Consequence by mjponso [Amy] Burn, Baby, Burn: Ch. 1 by mjponso
Now, the rules for submission are as follows:
• One critique allows you to submit one deviations, two critiques allows you to submit three deviations and three critiques or more allows you to submit five de

2) on your critique, add about 100 more words. Describe what it meant for you, whether you feel that it can be improved. Things like any line which stood out and why, or whether there was some book or concept from the poem which you really liked as it evoked a nostalgia or something. And finally, on an ending note, what was the take home message you got from the poem.

3) Copy the link of your comment (click on the "comment" link on the header of the comment) and paste it onto the journal which has been linked.

4) Then you can submit.

And it isn't a stupid question. Its an FAQ we get often, don't worry about it. Follow these steps and you'll be fine.

By the way, Welcome to the group :)
