Vitalien :iconlyricanna:Lyricanna 7 9
It always came back to blood between them, Niles thought wryly. There was blood at every important moment they had shared so it made an odd, poetic sort of sense that there should be some here now, at this, arguably the biggest moment of their lives since they had met. He should have expected it, really.
The night that they met, he had been bruised and bloodied by the guards by the time Leo had intervened. He already had a commanding presence at 15, a look of knowing that was impossible to explain. That steady look made him seem even older; his age had come as a surprise to Niles when he found out. Leo always made him feel younger, clumsier.
Leo – despite everything, Niles only ever thought of him as Leo although he never referred to him as just Leo in public – had examined him like a curiosity found in some museum, an oddity to be understood and classified before being put into its proper place. That Leo had thought that that place was as his subordinate had been both bi

For that smile
Corrin was standing at the edge of the lake, staring at the rising sun. She had stood there staring at it every morning since her arrival in Hoshido. It was a simple wonder and yet it made Azura smile to watch. From her own memories, Azura knew that there was no sun in Nohr; the gray pre-dawn of Hoshido was full noon in the shadow shrouded kingdom. She had buried those memories as deep as she could; aside from her mother, she had no fond memories of the kingdom she had been stolen from.
Corrin turned away from the sunrise and smiled when she saw Azura. That smile was contagious, Azura thought. Anyone would bend over backwards to see Corrin smile. That Corrin had no clue about the effect she had on others was part of her appeal; she took nothing for granted, not her looks or her charm. She wasn't demure but hers was a quiet pride, unlike her Hoshidan siblings who were boisterous. It struck Azura again that Corrin didn't look a thing like them; white hair and vibrant red eyes, paler skin

Fire Emblem Heroines Collab (223/240 DONE)
UPDATE: We're planning to start the assembly by the first weekend of May, or May 20th. Stay tuned.

Here's what we posted earlier:
Yesterday was the day that we finally reached 1,000 members. Thanks so, so much for the love and support, and hopefully, you will keep it up. So to celebrate that, and the release of Fire Emblem Heroes ( ), which is to have every character in the whole franchise, we are doing a collab, with all (or most) female FE characters, ranging from Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light to Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE, in one image. Sounds pretty fun, doesn't that sound so?

Celebrating Deviousness - January 2017

In Recognition of Exemplary Membership and an Outstanding Spirit of helpfulness and mentoring within the DeviantArt community.
Introducing neurotype
Call me norpadorp.
I joined DeviantArt back in the day on a friend’s recommendation. Mainly to browse art, but one of my earliest memories using this site is repeatedly submitting to the Pixel Art category because I had no idea what ‘Indie Art’ was.
By the time I figured it out, I was part of a community I hadn’t expected to be a part of. My parents support art as recreation; my first exposure to the world of professional artists and art criticism was here. Without meeting the people I met here, I can confidently say that I never would have gone beyond fanfiction parodies as a writer, taken more than a couple of drawing cl

deviantART's 11th BirthdAy: Let's Celebrate!

August 7th, 2011 marks deviantART's 11th birthdAy, but in true devious style, we're taking a whole week to celebrate! Our original plans for Deviants Appreciation Day were so huge that there was no possible way to express our love for the community in a mere 24 hours. Instead, we've created Deviants Appreciation Week, and what better time to host a week's worth of community-oriented events than in the days leading up to our birthdAy?

Each day this week, we have something special organized for you to participate in! Check out the schedule of events below to come party with us!

Update: Fair Exposure and Popular Browse
:bulletgreen:  Fair Exposure and miscategorization
On January 24th, 2012, we released an hq journal regarding Popular results for Browse. In this journal, we described Fair Exposure -- deviantART's algorithm for Popular browse results.  Fair Exposure's goal is to showcase the most popular deviations in a variety of styles, genres, and art forms, without bias towards a particular topic.
Since the release of our Fair Exposure announcement, especially in the last handful of weeks, we've noticed a concerted, dedicated effort made by deviants, or groups of deviants, to specifically beat (or "game") the system.  Deviations have been intentionally miscategorized in hopes of having them appear "higher" in Popular results.  This has, rightfully so, resulted in complaints from deviants who submit to deviantART in a fair and honest manner.

Good morning Callisto VIII...
Google+ will celebrate its 15th birthday in August 2015. While many online communities have come and gone during the last decade and a half, DeviantArt remains because of our passionate and committed community. In that time, we've celebrated many milestones, and it became apparent we were in need of a place to share our victories and our challenges. And since we want to move toward more complete transparency with the community, what better time to also showcas

Happy holidays from deviantART!

'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through dA,
Not a troll was stirring, nor Grinch in his sleigh.
Deviations were hung in digital Galleries with care,
In hopes that +Favourites soon would be there.
The n00bs were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of Daily Deviations danced in their heads.
And Fella in his 'kerchief, and spyed with his night-light,
Had just settled down to log-off for the night,
When over in the Forums there arose such a clatter,
Fella sprang back online to see what was the matter.
To the browser window he flew like a flash,
Tore open the tabs and refreshed the cache.
When what to his art-loving eyes should appear,
But an animated sleigh and eight commissioned reindeer,
With a little old driver, so creative and slick,
Fella knew in a moment it must be St. Nick.
More rapid than broadband, his reindeer were famed,
After all his favorite art

New Username Symbols
As part of our ongoing process to make the user experience cleaner and more intuitive, we've launched a new set of username symbols designed to help easily identify deviant-types.
Easily Identifiable
At a glance, the new symbols are quickly recognizable. When hovering over a username symbol, a tooltip appears, providing a brief explanation of that user's deviant-type. If clicked, a modal appears, giving a brief explanation for each username symbol, with "Learn more" links that lead to more detailed explanations.
A word from Heidi:
Over the years, a few things have come to seem like deviantART mainstays. Deviant green, intricate art categorization, colorful avatars, symbols next to usernames. In our constant re-evaluation of what's best for longtime deviants and new users alike, we do sometimes need to stop and ask ourselves if a makeover for some aspect isn't overdue. Changing username symbols was one of the harder things we evaluated.

All deviants can now write Critiques
:star:  Be a giver!
Sometimes you come across a deviation that deserves special attention. It catches your eye in such a way that you're compelled to craft a response that goes above and beyond a normal comment.  Or perhaps a fellow deviant is having a tough time with a particular aspect of their work, and you know just what they need to take their art to the next level. As a good Internet citizen and art enthusiast, you want to help them out, but a normal comment doesn't quite suit your purpose. 
For these situations and more, we've given everyone the ability to write a Critique.  
:?  What is Critique?
DeviantART's Critique system is designed to help artists get in-depth, critical feedback and commentary on their work.  Valued feedback through Critique promotes creative growth as an artist and draws special attention to work.  Critiques are also a way for committed art enthusiasts, connoisseurs, and fans to publish real criticism,

Suicide and Self-harm Prevention

Are you going through a difficult time?
If you or someone you know is experiencing thoughts of suicide or self-harm and are in immediate danger, seek help as soon as possible by calling a local emergency telephone number, a suicide prevention hotline, or by going to the nearest emergency room.
At DeviantArt, we care deeply about our community – aiming to provide all our members with a safe and fun environment to create and grow.  However, we do not have trained medical professionals who can respond directly to life-threatening emergencies.  Please use the following resources if you are concerned about the safety of a DeviantArt member – including yourself.

Suicide, self-harm, and crisis prevention hotlines provide help to those in need – often acting as the first point of contact for individuals who are seeking help, support, and information. &
