My Fairy Name

Name of Image
Image from: www.etsy.com/transaction/11443…

My fairy name is Fruitpip Windtree

She brings gentle breezes to change the weather.
She lives in stony places and tumbling wastes.
She can only be seen when the first leaves fall from the trees.
She wears a heather-coloured dress and has silvery lilac butterfly wings.

New Feature, Reading Challenge + Groups

Journal Entry: Fri Jul 24, 2015, 2:38 PM



thepsychoguy and AlexanderPaupoff recently hosted "The Deity Contest" and I promised features to the winners. Well, here are your features!!

SolidMars

A guide to breaking Earth."Sir, sir, please do not touch that!" The panicked man jumped between the hand and the button. "Please sir, with all due respect. No touching allowed, not even for you. I understand it's your first day and you're curious, but please. This room is very delicate!" 
"Aww, Grim, what's the worst that can happen? Why are you named Grim anyway, you look too cheerful for grim." The young man shoved his hands in his pockets and whistled a carefree tone as he walked around the busy room.
Men and women in formal clothing ran around. Papers flew from one side to the other and a lot of buttons blinked as a large monitor, which occupied an entire wall, displayed an image of the world's map. Different numbers flickered on top of the screen, while a control panel filled with weird-looking symbols lined the bottom.
"Is that Earth Grimmy? I never knew it was this small."
"This is just a map sir. Look Jerry, if I can call you that, why don't you go back upstairs? I'm sure you're needed."

The MockingbirdDoctor, do you have a minute to spare?
The call was directed at my mother midway between the second and third floor in our apartment complex. Four of us stood on the freshly cleaned stairs. Mother, myself, the cleaning lady, and her little daughter.
Could you please spare some cooking oil?
It had to be one of the rare times I heard shame in someone's voice. The shame of having to ask burdened her immensely. She clasped her hands as she looked at us, and rushed to justify after a moment of silence. 
I want to cook for the kids. It's been a week and I couldn't get paid to buy some.
I never knew words needed so much power to come out. She tried to shrug her nervous tone with a smile, but couldn't quite manage to. Instead she looked down. 
I didn't wait mother. She taught me better, I knew better. There was much sorrow in a single question, and not the kind of sorrow a mother should be uttering in front of a child. I still heard bits and pieces of their conve
  SparrowRoughly less than a mile away from the wealthy district sat a woman. 
A little bag filled with nearly empty medicine lay near her. She rested on the step of a closed shop, right in front the national bank. She begged on a low tone. You'd guess nearly no one stopped. Everyone was suddenly too busy to glance at the old lady. Wrinkled, poor, and somewhat desperate, it probably took all her pride to sit and beg at the corner of a street.
She had a story to tell though. I don't think I've heard a more painful sigh than the one she let out when I came to a halt by her side.
Just a bit of money, she said. Not for food, not for drink, just a bit of money to refill her meds. She didn't want to give up yet. 
Driven out of her home by war. No family left to speak of, her husband passed and her three sons were brought wrapped in flags. 
But the forth son never came back. She buried an empty casket instead. He didn't die, he'll come find me. He's a good boy, jus
  A simple HeartHe remains bewildered before her calm eyes,
a sorry escaping his lips for the millionth time.
Yet with a shrug, she smiles and lets him know
it no longer mattered, he only tore a heart in two.

Message UndeliverableI am the goddess of the Sticky Note.
I long thrived on all of the words humanity would generously pour into me. I feasted on their cursive, their block letters, their chicken scratch. Penmanship came in many flavors – each one a fresh treat, each one an act of devotion. Each message as unique as the human hand that scrawled it in their haste.
People never seemed to feel that they had enough time. But I had all of time to enjoy their scribblings.
Messages to themselves. Messages to each other. Messages meant for the void. So many fleeting moments I enjoyed along with my loyal followers – soaking in their ink and their graphite and their adorably-named permanent markers.
Then the laptops came. The cellphones. The tablets.
My source of worship dried up. Why bother with paper? Digital would not crumple. It would not be destroyed in the wash, forgotten in some back pocket. It would not end up at the bottom of some messenger bag, smeared and torn.
One by one I lost them. Oh, the


MORE WORK FROM THIS ARTIST:

Forgive MeIt seems so surreal.
The grave is still here. A part of the grass that covers it looks a bit disturbed, but otherwise like it should.
The grave is still here but the body that should be beneath isn’t.
He sits back on his knees, pressing his knuckles against the earth.
Almost every week, after therapy, he comes to visit this grave. It might be masochistic, but it reminds him. It stands as a warning, a lesson, a signpost.
He brings his chipped black nails to his lips, and chews them. They taste like dirt.
His chest feels tight. His heart is hammering. But he takes a deep breath of the summer air. Forget the winter. Don’t forget – forgive. Let go.
He looks to his wrist. The black ink of the tattoo half covered by his sleeve catches his eye. The words mark his pale skin like a brand. He put them there. To always remember.
They are the words from his father’s suicide note.
Forgive Me
  Where Your Ashes LingerHer cheeks were dry stream beds.
And she gathered up the photographs and the ticket stubs and the sketchbooks and the pressed flowers. She burned them all.
Watching the flames lick the dry petals like starving puppies should have helped. It didn’t. The ache still lingered and burn and stung and pulled.
They would never have another call lasting past midnight, or another walk beneath the stars, or another glance into each other’s eyes to discover an entire universe waiting right there.
She saw her ex’s frozen smile split apart in fire and tried to feel nothing and tried and tried.
Cassandra vowed to never allow even the smallest sliver of moonlight into her heart again.

MORE WORK FROM THIS ARTIST:

A Dragon's songs for a Winter RosePrelude
She didn't have Elia's sweet frailty, neither Ashara Dayne's grace nor Cersei Lannister's courtly manners. If I must be honest, she was like no one I knew, may she be a living lady or a song's fair maid. 
She had a rustic, wild beauty: her hair, woven with ribbons, was as black as a raven wing and her eyes had the hue of a misty winter morning. No other gentlewoman would protect her Lord Father's banner man, wielding a sword and fighting like a man, and it was that what made my eyes linger on her slender figure. 
She was so different, so full of life… I could only wish to have for myself her ardour.

Also consider sponsoring us if you are able. If you want to do this please send the full amount to me with a note saying its for the group. Every journal entry for the rest of the year will have a byline saying: Journal made possible by <your dev name> (Free advertising for you!)

:bulletblue: I am also looking for more admins to help run this group.

:bulletblack: I need 5000 points to update this group (I have 0 of my own thanks to previous donations). Please send all donations to me, marked for the group. Also consider sponsoring us if you are able. If you want to do this please send the full amount to me with a note saying its for the group. Every journal entry for the rest of the year will have a byline saying: Journal made possible by <your dev name> (Free advertising for you!)

:iconordinary-writing:
:bulletred: We are looking for admins. They should be eager and happy to work in a prose-centric environment. They should be trustworthy.
To apply as admin please note me.
:bulletred: We are trying to bring the group back to activity with monthly and weekly prompts. Stay tuned to the group to see what these prompts are.


4

:iconadopt-a-writer:
We are looking for one thing:
:bulletgreen: Mentors!
We are currently sitting with people waiting for adoption. Granted some are probably no longer active on DA but I can only know that if I pair them up with someone and they don't respond. We are in desperate need for mentors, as I have recently received three new applications for adoption and I have no mentors available. I am particularly looking for mentors who like more than two genres (I get a lot of fantasy and sci-fi, but there are some waiting who have other likes) and at least one mentor who likes fan fiction as I know there is one mentee with fan fiction as their strong point. However, if you are a one genre, non-fan fiction person please don't hesitate to fill out the form anyway and wait your new pet mentee who will (hopefully) appreciate the time you are putting into the relationship and (hopefully) one day become a friend.


5

:icongrammarnazicritiques:
We are still looking for four things:
:bulletblack: Prose entries to critique
We are running out of entries in our prose folder and the critics need something to do. Please help us out by mentioning us to people or submitting work yourself. REMEMBER to read our rules first.

:bulletred: Poetry Critics
With most of our critics having come in the time of prose-need we are now short on poetry critics. What do you have to do as a critic?

:bulletorange: Commit to a minimum of two critiques per month (but the more the merrier)

:bulletred: Prose Critics
We have recently lost our best prose critic to the nastyness that is life getting in the way so we are looking for some more. What do you have to do as a critic? (See Above)
REMEMBER you can still submit your own work to be critiqued by another critic.

:bulletred: I am looking for someone to become the vice-captain of the group to help me accept pieces into our folders and with organisation.


6

:iconfront-2-back:
We are looking for two things:
:bulletblue: We are looking for admins, whose main task would be looking through the submissions for those with few comments and commenting on them themselves.
:bulletwhite: More members who want the first chapter/summary etc of their book read and commented upon as to whether it is a page turner. Please note, there is a rule that for every piece you submit you comment on two other pieces already in the folder, but all information can be found on the group page.

I'm a relatively simple person who likes to write. I value honesty, especially in comments and critiques, and loyalty.

If you are going to fave something of mine it would be nice if you could leave a comment as well. It is not required, but feedback is always welcome.

If you need to talk about anything feel free to note me.
