"Will ya look at the legs on that femme!" Ironhide whispered, jabbing him lightly in the torso plating.
Brawn rolled his optics before shifting around and stealing a peak more subtle than his teammate's gawking. "Yeah, I see her. What about her?"
"'What about her?'" The red Autobot began waving his arms, forming a circular shape with his motions. "Have ya looked at her?"
"Eh, she's got a big head," he said dismissively.
Ironhide snorted. "Oh, now yer just bein' too picky."
"And she's only got one hand," he added before taking another drink of his oil. It was the crude stuff, gritty and scratching his pipes all the way down. Just like he
For the Good of the Universe"Nova Prime! I will have words with you!"For the Good of the Universe by `JZLobo
The white and black Prime looked nonplussed as the behemoth Cybertronian stormed through the hall doors and addressed him. "Well this must be important indeed, if the great Omega Supreme deigns speak more than a single sentence." He nodded, dismissing his chief scientist Jhiaxus and a one-eyed mech Omega didn't know. The giant bristled as they left. He despised that sociopath under Nova's employ. "Now what is it?"
"It is the Ark, Prime. You may have the masses fooled, but I know your true intentions for it."
"I would be disappointed if you didn't suspect." Nova remained infuriatingly calm, finally
|My gallery is very mixed bag, but that's due to the fact that I lack talent with a pencil and have to make do with what I do have.|
I am learning how to wield Photoshop. Constructive critiques of those pieces would be welcomed, but please keep in mind that I'm still very much a neophyte when you offer feedback and I'll probably ask some very n00bish questions.
The Small ThingsThe Small ThingsThe Small Things by ~TheLimeTangerine
It had been several weeks since Hershel Layton's last "adventure," if one could call it that, and he was trying his best for things to get back to normal.
Some semblance of normalcy was really what he'd needed at the moment. An outpouring of condolences had come from his fellow staff as well as a large majority of the students at Gressenheller University. At first, it had only served to draw more attention to the ordeal, but he did appreciate the effort. He'd been asked if he needed time offNo, he'd insisted, he couldn't just retreat from his job any more than he already had just for some personal vacation. It would b
Beta-Reader Match-Making: A Fan Fiction ContestMy tenure as Community Volunteer of Fan Fiction ends tomorrow, and I want to go out with a bang. So here's one more competition with prizes so you'll all remember me fondly!
A writer's best friend is another writer. Sometimes you just cannot objectively look over your own work and fix all your mistakes. You need a fresh pair of eyes to help you, and who better than someone else who understands the labors of love you're undertaking? That is where editors come in. But for many people, finding a literary helpmate can be difficult.
What's this about?
This is a two-part contest for writers of fan fiction. Phase One: Write a fan fiction but don't bother to proofread it. Post it in its raw, unedited first draft (just make sure it's still legible--correct your typos, at the very least). Phase Two: We play musical chairs with the stories and assign each of you another entry to edit. Entries will be judged by two categories: Best Diamond in the Rough (premise of the story
Entries must be fan fiction, newly-written specifically for this contest.
Maximum 3K word count for first drafts. Revisions can go over by a little, if necessary.
When you post your revision, don't forget to credit the original author.
Fancharacters are welcome, but canon characters must still be the focus of the story. If the beta reader isn't familiar with the canon, it should still be accessible to them.
All of deviantART's submission rules still apply. No graphic porn, etc.
Submissions must be entered into the "Contests > Beta Match-Making" gallery.
Phase One runs from June 11 - July 11. Submit your first-draft entries here.
Phase Two runs from July 13 - August 13, once I assign stories for you to edit. Submit your revised pieces here.
Winners of each category (Best Diamond in the Rough and Best Revision) will receive:
A One-Year Premium Membership
A Medium Art Print of their choice ($50 maximum value)
A Six-Month Premium Membership
A Small Art Print of their choice ($25 maximum value)
A Three-Month Premium Membership
