The works for  the month of May are:


Tyler And The Ferret's Random Hour
Hey, what’s up everyone? My name is Tyler!
    And I’m the Ferret!
And we’re gonna be spittin’ out some randomness for you today!
    Pa kow!
All random, right off the top of our heads!
    Chubba wubba!
Let’s start off with a nice random word, like potato!
    What’s more random than a potato?
I dunno. It’s a POTATO!
    I like em mashed!
Nobody cares Ferret. How about this one:
    What is it? What is it?
    Oh yeah! Walls bitches!
How about unicorn?
    How about monkey?
Monkey is not a random word, Ferret! Don’t say monkey!
    How about dowel?
That’s better! Jelly beans!
A hamburger!
FERRET! We are not playing a word association game! This is random! The people want random!
Let’s kick it u
Dust Night
Moonlight settles like a dust on the grass.
It coats each blade, giving a slight florescence,
breathing the slightest bit of life,
as though the ground beneath were its child.
This dust settles almost everywhere,
but I can only feel it here,
as it travels through my open window
on the chilled breeze.
It is a soft dust,
it brings its softness to the world,
and if you breathe it in slowly,
you can feel your heart fluoresce.


The Sting: Contact
Have you ever heard of coulrophobia? It’s the clinical fear of clowns. It’s quite a common fear apparently, right up there with spiders, and death. Until quite recently, I’d never heard of the term. I certainly had no idea it was such a pervasive phobia. Luckily, I have the good fortune never to have suffered such a fear. Instead, I find clowns intensely dull. It was with great displeasure that I found myself in the middle of the Orcan district of Marrshk, caught in the midst of a travelling circus. The local Orcs were loving it. I was not.
“Virmira.” I muttered. “Tell me again why we’re here.”
“You know why we’re here, Daric.” She sighed.
“I need to hear it again.”
“We’re here because of the crowds, and because there are far more interesting things here than us.”
“But – why are we here?”
She ignored me. Probably wise, really. Although from the curl of her lip and th


Opening the Tin Can [Abridged]Sherlock has Moriarty. Batman has The Joker. Superman has Lex Luthor. For ten long years, I too have been engaged in a heated battle with my own arch-nemeses. One of them is seaside crane machines. The other one – the far more serious one, and the one I want to talk about today – goes by the moniker “EC”.
I first came across EC in my late teens, and since then, they have made my life a living hell. They taunt me every single day – belittling me, bullying me and down-treading all of my achievements, making me feel frightened, upset, and on occasion, angry.
I know what you're thinking. Why didn't I just report this monster to my teachers, my parents, or even the police? Now that I'm an adult, why don't I just move away and leave them behind – start a nice new life in another neighbourhood or another city? Well, I'm afraid that it is not quite that simple. I could move to Australia and EC would still follow. Teacher, parent, nor police could punish EC w
Evil Minions Union: Vote for Montague (Monologue) by bookloverblue

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 :)
