Alpha tester
As an alpha tester, I have to test deviantART features before they are released to beta testing. It means testing with different types of accounts and groups and different browsers. Alpha testers recruiting is closed for now.

:heart: dAWishingWell founder
dAWishingWell is a group to help deviants with their dA wishes like getting more watchers, gathering some points, exchanging llamas and more. Everybody can join and make a wish (but please read the rules first).

:damphyr: Gangsta of Love (AWW)
Angels Without Wings (AWW) is a bi-weekly feature of three deviants who are well known by the dA community. The founder of this project is Nameda and you can see details here:

Monday Muses

Mon Apr 14, 2014, 2:06 PM

Welcome to our activity on Mondays - Monday Muses!

It's all about the artists and artworks that inspire you! :painter:

There are many ways someone can be an inspiration. By displaying inspiring community spirit, or providing helpful resources for example. Or maybe you just stumbled over an amazing artwork that simply knocked you off your feet and inspired you to make something of your own right away. No matter what it is, we want you to share it!

Simply pick an artist or deviation you find inspiring in some way, and post them in a comment on this journal. Please also include why you chose that artist or artwork. Your suggestions will be featured next week! :heart:

If you want the feature to be a surprise for the deviant(s) you suggested, please leave away the '@' or :dev: when typing the username (and post links to artworks instead of thumbs), that way your Muses won't be notified of your comment here through the mentions system.

Also feel free to post this wonderful stamp the awesome a-neverending made on the profile pages of your Muses once the feature is published:

Give a stamp! - You are my MondayMuse by a-neverending

This week's Muses are:

"Neccers is crazy, but crazy in a good way. LOL Her fantastic sense of humor never fails to inspire me and brighten my days. Aww Thank you for being so amazing! Heart"

:bulletgreen::bulletgreen::bulletgreen: :iconshirley-agnew-art:  :bulletgreen::bulletgreen::bulletgreen:

Hidden Pain
It is easy to be friends when times are good,
sharing the laughter like good friends should,
but can you be there for when times are bad,
a shoulder to lean on when friends are sad,
Sharing a sadness often hidden from view,
going unmentioned because it's taboo,
It's easy to look happy and smile through the pain,
though deep inside you fear you're going insane,
Your feelings and emotions come and go like the tide,
on the outside you're happy, but you are screaming inside,
Falling asleep after a long restless night, dreading the
new day that is almost in sight, wishing that it all would
just end, days when death almost seems like a friend,
Could you be there for the times like these,
when your friend is crying and on their knees,
It is easy to your friends to be a good host, but
can you be there when they need you the most,
Standing close by their side to help them be strong,
and give them the strength just to carry on,
Being there to listen is the best thing to do,
letting them know tha

"Her latest deviation really touched me and I think it's definitely inspiring and heartfelt!"

:bulletgreen::bulletgreen::bulletgreen: :iconzobobafoozie: :bulletgreen::bulletgreen::bulletgreen:

" Zoe is a very talented artist interested in children's illustrations. Her artwork is so bright and cute, her characters are adorable. Seeing her art always brings a smile to my face! Besides her dA, she has a tumblr account and Facebook page with art as well."

:bulletgreen::bulletgreen::bulletgreen: :iconstatic-ghost: :iconvirllanda: :iconwotansvogel: :bulletgreen::bulletgreen::bulletgreen:

Chill waters by Static-ghost
"This piece has a very dreamy atmosphere. These colors are just perfect. And the creature itself must be made of love."

Moonlight- PC for Kajatica by Virllanda
"This painting is just gorgeous in my eyes. All the lighting and the details are magnificent. The background blows your mind."

.: Lunar Lament :. by Wotansvogel
"Amazing use of colors in a darker way. It's like a beautiful dream. And the character in this is so unique!"

:bulletgreen::bulletgreen::bulletgreen: :iconstygma: :bulletgreen::bulletgreen::bulletgreen:

"Stygy is one of the most awesome people I've ever met on dA. She's been on dA for a really long time, and I'm surprised I didn't meet her sooner, but not only do I find her to be very active in the community, very capable and doing a great job of taking care of this group which is NOT an easy type of group to run, but she is a super nice and helpful person to everyone, and has become a good friend to me. Heart

For some of the reasons I just mentioned and MORE, I believe she should indeed receive her Senior Membership, as was recently wished for by The-Lantiis Now, I believe this has come up before, but I know we can work on this together.

Please help me, by suggesting her!!! 
La la la la

By the way, she's also an amazingly multi-talented artist! I will demonstrate with a piece below."

The Crow Wallpaper 6- Dance 4 by Serenus-Phasmatis CE: The splashing game page3 by Azixel Webcomic - TPB - The Slave Ship - Page 5 by Dedasaur Home? by TeaPhotography
I'm Not A PrincessI'm not a princess locked in a tower
Nor am I a delicate flower
Helpless depictions of royalty
Are clearly not what I'm meant to be
I am a child, so wild, so free
Gazing around my world, so innocently
Rescue me not, I beg of you
Pass me by or walk on through
Surrounded am I, by loving care
Whilst I sit on a pauper's chair
I'm not rich, nor prim and proper
And I've no need of a fancy cake topper
Content am I, to be myself
I'd rather not sit on a shelf
Like a jewel from afar, see but don't touch
For me, that would be far too much
So leave me be, here on the ground
Where both the good and the bad will come around
I have no need of a servant to follow any command
But it would be nice of you to take my hand
Play with me?  Be by my side?
Where there's no need for stubborn pride?
As two children, free from care
And of the world, it's worries trapped there.
I'm no princess, don't save me
Instead I ask, quite playfully,
To dance with me, but it might be clever
If I could ask you to
  Bury Me (In White)"I'm living backwards
so bury me
in white:--
I will reclaim
my purity."
The funeral is a small affair, ungarnished and over early. There mainly out of obligation and the need to be seen doing the right thing, the mourners are a motley assortment of relatives who are quick to kiss cheeks, and even quicker to take their leave. None of them felt the need to dissect this empty place in our lives that he once filled, and after only 2 hours, the only people remaining at the gravesite are myself, my sister, and the empty cage of his decaying bones, buried deeply beneath our feet.
Her fingers are swollen, like her face, and we both know she will soon follow him. "When it's my turn," she whispers, "bury me in white."
Her curls damp against her face, my sister adjusts the baby without stopping. Her feet are always in motion, as though she can build safety for this family as long as she never stays still, and all that's left for me is to watch. She is 14 years old, living her life backwa
  Half-Blood Kingdom - Chapter 8 - Part 2I remember the day I walked into Darius’s royal chamber and confronted him with everything. That’s when I found out the truth. He had been hiding his grief over what he had done. He had told no one of the spell that had saved his Kingdom, but it had eaten away at him every single day. I told him that I didn’t believe him, and so to test his trustworthiness I would cast a spell to try and negate the one my mother had cast. I was expecting him to say no but instead he begged me to do it. He looked half out of his mind and he groveled at my feet, so I did what I could.
‘Why should the son bear the father’s guilt? Why should the work of his hands be destroyed before it’s even built? Let’s make a way for everything to be made right, though it is far and out of sight. For it is true the Kingdom will fall, but let the children grow up to fix it all. Before the sun sets tonight, let fate takes its course to make things right!’
I didn’t know
