I'm finally back in Australia and slowly catching up on things, but the reason behind this journal is not that but raise awareness for my friend ~YooMe who is going through a very difficult situation that for legal issues I cannot disclose. She and her 5 old daughter are homeless and stuck in Australia unless they can get some groceries, housing and tickets back to the United States. A mutual friend has set up a fundraiser and I'd love you guys forever if you could donate, even if it is one dollar. YooMe has been through so many bad things all her life and I think it's time something good happens to her for a change. The fundraiser can be found here: www.gofundme.com/531va8
If you can't donate, spreading the word will be much appreciated. The more people see this the better.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Just a short journal entry to let you all know tomorrow I'll be having a surgery and will be on hiatus until I fully recover. I don't expect it will take a long time, but until I fully return I ask you to send all your Fan Art suggestions and inquiries to ^Lyricanna and ^Ry-Spirit.
I hope to see you very soon.
I'm back home and slowly recovering. I can't spend a lot of time on the computer, so my presence will be scarce.

A Taste of Honey, Ch.1This idea stemmed from a roleplay session with a good friend of mine. It's nowhere as dark as The Death of Peeta Mellark, which I'm still working on by the way. I'll be alternating between both. The writing for this is simpler, since it's in Katniss' POV, as opposed to an omniscient view.
I do hope you enjoy. Please review and comment. Don't be shy!
Chapter 1: Catching A Mockingjay
I hit the wild turkey in the eye. Clean shot.
It's taken me months of practice to catch up to the archery skills I once possessed, and even then, I've been missing more then I used to. Either I catch the animal in an awkward way that makes it less appealing to buyers, or I miss altogether. Still, it's better then three months ago when I grasped my bow for the first time since the end of the war. Pulling the string alone was exhausting and painful. Now it almost feels natural again.
I set the turkey into my game bag with the other one I caug

Orange and Blue hadn’t come back.
They had been taking more and more time to do so, lately, but she could hardly blame them. They were getting old, after all. She had never expected them to last forever. The only reason she was still using them was that building more of them would have been stupid. Robots testing was not Science. Still, she had to make do with what she had. Other than the occasional human who wandered into Aperture, whom of which she would gleefully put through testing until their… usefulness… came to an end, she had no test subjects. No, robot testing was not Science, but she had earned commendation for trying. Even if the commendation was a personal commendation, from her to herself. Come to think of it, the only one who ever commended her was herself. Which was odd. Surel
I'd like you all to please take a moment and read what ^Lyricanna says in there, because it pretty much applies in my case as well when it comes to receiving Daily Deviation suggestions. She put it better than I could ever do:
DD Suggestion Don'tsDisclaimer: Like my DD guidelines, these are largely preferences (the no policy violations being the sole hard-fast rule here). So they may not generalize to other CVs But that's okay; we're all different and have different tastes! And that's how we continue to bring you guys a variety of art in the DDs section
I have set out my guidelines both on my page in brief and in full HERE, which gives all of you lovely people who suggest me DDs an idea of what I am looking for. But there are a few things I am most certainly NOT looking for, which might be worth mentioning, especially since everyone wants their suggestions picked. So why not up the chances?
Okay let me explain this one. I LOVE getting DD suggestion notes. What I do not love is getting 10+ notes with 5 thumbs each FROM THE SAME PERSON in LESS THAN 5 hours. Beca
For those who want the tl;dr version:
Please do not:
- Spam me with DD suggestion notes in the course of less than 5 hours.
- Send me suggestions with bad anatomy.
- Send me photorealism with NO references in the description.
- Send me porn.
Thank you very much.
Yes, I am finally back from my hiatus and just finished reading all my pending notes.
I'd like to thank everyone who sent their condolences and messages of support. I may have not replied to you all, but I want you to know I really do appreciate it with all my heart. Thanks once again.
It's good to be back.
Just a quick reminder that I'm still on hiatus. Please do not send me any DD suggestion/enquiry notes as I'm not reading them and I have a backlog of 136. As soon as I get fully back I will make sure to get to them all, but please don't send me anything urgent because I wont read it immediately.

Rest in peace, I love you and ALWAYS will. I couldn't have wished for a better parent and nothing I could do the last few months can't ever pay for all the love and the wonderful things you did for me.
My father is in critical condition in the hospital with a case of pneumonia. The doctors have said he wont survive this and I'm currently in an emotional state where I cannot possibly do my volunteer duties as best as I could. I'll be browsing dA, but wont be responding to notes or messages until I fully return. Please send your Fan Art DD suggestions to ^Lyricanna and your Cartoons & Comics suggestions to `jcroxas.
Thank you for understanding.

^Lyricanna has been providing us with some delicious fan art every friday with her Fan Art Fridays series. Here's a list of the articles from the past 2 months:
I'm also holding a series of articles with Fan Art themed features. March and April editions are the following:
Speaking of contests, our official contest "Redesign a Character" has come to an end and the winners have been announced in this article.
See you guys in 2 months time for the next newsletter!
Just a quick entry to remind you our Fan Art Contest: Redesign a Character is due next week on April 26. We have few entries and would love to see more!
Redesign a character contest!If there's something we love about fan art is how artists take artistic liberties and portray characters in their own style and different scenarios we wouldn't see otherwise. Some people will say that fan art is unoriginal, but from experience there's a lot of creativity involved when it comes to depicting your favourite characters in a different light, deviating from the way they were designed by their creators.
This is why, inspired by the Pokedesign Challenge by *CrazyRatty on Tumblr, your friendly neighborhood Fan Art CVs decided to host a fun little contest for you!
How it works:
Pick a character from any fandom you like.
Come up with at least 3 different re-designs for them and put them in a single image.
Upload to deviantART's Fan Art Gallery
Spreading the word is also appreciated.
