“Are you sure about this Lyn?” Florina asked. Her face was coloured with concern, her large blue eyes searching.  
Lyn nodded. She had heard the same from Kent and Sain already, from Hector as well. She hated having to add to his burdens but at least he had the know how for ruling. He grew up in Ostia's castle, had the education that most young lords did, and advisors that he could trust. Advisors that had seen more than one lord's reign and had experience to draw on.
“I'm not cut out for this. It just makes sense to let Caelin's rule fall to someone who has the time, resources and knowledge to rule it properly,” she explained. As she had to anyone else who had asked. As she would to anyone else who would ask. She hoped that no one else would. It was exhausting.
“But tonight? It's only been three days since the funeral. Why not wait until morning?” Florina asked gently. She knew that Lyn had barely slept since her grandfather's death.

Falling Is Like This
“I just don't know,” Nina said as she absently stirred her coffee far more than necessary. Soleil had learned to recognize it as a nervous gesture a long time ago; Nina would stir her coffee without drinking it if she was upset or worried. It was a cute habit but Soleil never enjoyed seeing a girl upset. “I mean I like hanging out with him, but I think I just want boys that are friends instead of a boyfriend you know?”
“Not really,” Soleil replied. “Boyfriends are not my territory.” Nina swatted her across the table and Soleil couldn't help but laugh.
“Okay but like, isn't it easier for you to daydream about cute girls, especially ones you know if you aren't also trying to be close with them? The distance just feels safer. And it's not like I can talk two guys into kissing if I'm dating one of them anyway!”
“Maybe I just have the advantage,” Soleil replied. “I'm a girl who likes girls and maybe one day I'll a

This Time, This Place
Niles lingered in the doorway of the largest library he had ever been in. That included the library in Castle Krakenburg, where he had spent countless hours with Leo, just in case. He was always with Leo, just in case he needed books carried or food fetched or an assassin slipped by. Odd to have been separated by the bizarre circumstances that brought him to this world, odder still to know that Leo was here now. He had asked after every summoning ritual, after every fight, every contract – who are we kidding, compulsion – was broken. Yet somehow his young lord had slipped by, had been here a week already and he hadn't known. A minor irritant that – it had always been his job to know things. To ferret out secrets, plots. And here Leo sat, nose in a book, stacks of more books to his right and left and Niles had only learned of it half an hour ago, after he had scared it out of Alfonse.
That had been fun though, Niles thought idly. He enjoyed making the pou

Welcome to the Quirlicorn Joust! - Monthly Event -
Welcome to the Quirlicorn Joust!
Below we will outline what exactly the Quirlicorn Joust is, how this ongoing event works, how you can participate, and what types of prizes you can win by participating.  If anything is unclear or you don't fully understand something, please feel free to ask us to clarify it for you.
Quirlicorns are generally not suited for most equine eventing.  While they absolutely can participate in any form of eventing, the breed excells in sparring and use of magic above all else.  As such we're providing a safe space for these beautiful unicorns to follow their passions and do the things they are built for.  
The Quirlicorn Joust is an ongoing event, which will have new promts posted on the first of each month.  Participation in the Quirlicorn Joust is completely voluntary and there are no requirements for how often you have to participate.  While there will only be 1 prompt each month, weekly participation is permitted and encourage

Hello everyone,
Each month we'll run all of our lovely group horses through RNG in order provide you all with these genos.

Fire Emblem Heroines Collab
UPDATE: And here's what you've all been waiting for! 

After 5 months, we've completed the collab! Thank you all very much for participating! 

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 c

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 sho

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 ar

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.
I've been testin
