Suggest A Daily Deviation

  • I only take Fan Fiction and Literature suggestions. I cannot feature anything else (like scraps).
  • :new:Please mention whether your suggestion is for Literature or Fan Fiction in your note.
  • Make sure that the deviant hasn't already received a Daily Deviation within the past 6 months. FAQ #313: How can I find out if someone already has a Daily Deviation?
  • :star: Please read my Guidelines before submitting your suggestion. :star:

How to suggest


Just hit the "Note" button on my profile page and add the subject: DD Suggestion include the thumb code (or URL) along with the reason why you think the deviation should be featured as a Daily Deviation.


I may not reply to all suggestions but I do read, consider and appreciate every suggestion :heart:.

Transformers: Tarnished IdolsTitle: Transformers: Tarnished Idols
Universe: G1

Warnings: Mild Angst, Claustrophobia
Author's Note: Time doesn’t heal all wounds. Some wounds fester. Time conversion – vorn: 83 years.

“I swear I will kill Rumble,” Starscream said, mouth twisted into a fierce grimace.
Dust filled the room, blinding his optics and clogging his vents. He forced several quick bursts of air through them. Perhaps he could clear the overworked mechanisms. It didn’t work. As soon as he hacked some out, more dust flowed in. Now he resembled some sort of pathetic organic thing, clearing its respiratory organs. He cursed quietly. At least his vocals weren’t tied intrinsically to his vents, like some fleshling.
Warnings on his HUD display pinged as his internal temperature slowly started climbing and his vents failed to compensate. Nothing serious. Yet. He planned to be long gone before the dust and heat buildup caused any permanen
TF: Entomophobia - Halloween TradeTitle: Entomophobia
Pairings: None
Rating: PG
Warnings: Disturbing imagery
Author's Note: This is my submission for the TF-SecretSanta Halloween Trade for xDeadlyxxxDesirex. This is a Halloween story, so I tried for scary. It's not as lighthearted as my normal fics, although it has its humorous moments (I couldn't help myself). I pulled on two personal fears of mine when I wrote this, to try and add some real creepiness to it. I hope it works. Time conversions: Klik 1.2 minutes, Nanoklik approximately 1 second. Comm transmissions are marked with colons – ::like this.::
The Rust Sea spread across Cybertron's equator, an immense red scar across its surface. Erratic pillars twisted into the sky. Corrosive gasses bled from the ground, slowly eating the land away, turning everything to an endless expanse of rust. Across the ground, miniature hills rose and fell, forming 'waves' that traveled as far as the optic could see.
Numerous Cybertronian artists tried to duplicate the Rust Sea in

Universes (Crossover): Batman and Neil Gaiman's Sandman
Pairings: None
Rating: PG (to be safe)
Warnings: Angst, a corpse
Author's Note: Batman's natural desire to help has unforeseen consequences. This is my entry for the Crossover Contest, and my first crossover.
The copse lay amidst the alley clutter, unmoving, while the first spots of rain splattered on his Armani suit. The night buried him in shadows, the distant streetlights barely illuminating him. Thin rivulets of blood, black in the weak light, pasted down a few graying tufts of hair. His head bent backwards at an angle no living person could achieve. Knowing the futility of it, Batman still reached over and checked for a pulse.  
Looking at the dead never got any easier. It was ugly, no matter how peaceful the passing may have been. Yet still, Batman crouched besides the unmoving form, gently closing the man's eyes. The rain pattered against his hood and cape while he stood his silent vi
TF: Old Soldier FIRST DRAFT Contest EntryTitle: Transformers: Old Soldier FIRST DRAFT Contest Entry
Universe: G1 (Pre-Earth)
Pairings: None
Rating: PG
Warnings: Violence, Non-canon character death
Author's Note: This is my (mostly) unedited first draft. The contest specified minimal editing, which was extremely difficult for me. While I don't think this is bad, it's not as refined as I'd normally post. In fact, there are two details which need work/editing. Hopefully, they're not as obvious to others as they are to me (since I'm super critical of my own work).
Smoke hung heavy over Praxus, obscuring optics and clogging vents. Here, the once proud city-state stood cracked and charred, covered in ash. The glorious crystals of the Helix Gardens, the pinnacle of Cybertronian art and beauty, lay shattered. Many of the civilians were gone, long since fled or dead. Those that remained had abandoned their civilian ways, forced into more militaristic roles.

Fan-Fiction-Tastic News #20

Thu May 7, 2015, 9:37 PM by SingingFlames:iconsingingflames:




Hello! Welcome to the twentieth edition of my Fan-Fiction-Tastic News!

I hope April went well for you and here's wishing all of last month's showers bring forth a plethora of May flowers to you.

I am accepting (and love) Daily Deviation suggestions for both Fan Fiction and Literature! You guys are an immense help finding undiscovered pieces that I might otherwise miss. Please send in those suggestions! Also, please feel free to contact me with anything you need, be it questions, concerns, or any other help I can provide! Note me any time, reply here or leave a comment on my profile.

April Daily Deviations


I am actively looking for suggestions (both Fan Fiction and Literature). I love receiving them! (Yes, self-suggestions too!)

My Literature Daily Deviations:


March Weekly Features


Every week, I feature a new fan fiction story on my profile page. Drop by and check them out! (Last month, sadly, I became a swamped with offline affairs and was unable to feature a story each week.)

Literature Articles You Should KnowI don't take the time to write good community-building articles, I'm no good at it. But organizing good community articles? I'm all over that! Many thanks go to the great people who put so much of their time and energy into this site. If you don't know these people, they are intelligent, kind hearted, and entirely too good to be associating with layabouts like me. They deserve a lot more, but I recommend thanking them with llamas, points, gifts, praise... or :+devwatch: watch them. I've yet to see anything bad come from any of these guys. Oh, and if you aren't watching CRLiterature you should be. :eyes:
I'm going to try and catalog the most recent postings of various literature articles that the crazy amazing people of our community produce. It's hard to keep track of them all, but somebody has to try! And in the "those who cannot do" mentality, I can handle list-making as opposed to creating a series of my own. Everything that ends up on this p
May Book Club: The Ocean at the End of the LaneHey, there, lit lovers! Welcome to another episode of "We Want You To Read So We're Bribing You To Do It With Prizes And Other Fun Things!"
How This Works
This month we're reading THE OCEAN AT THE END OF THE LANE by Neil Gaiman. You have until May 16th to read the first half of the book (to the end of chapter 8). That's when I'll post the discussion journal, where there will be spoilers through the halfway point. At the end of the month, we'll discuss the entire book, with spoilers EVERYWHERE, so be prepared!

You can get this book at local book store or library, Amazon,

Last month, I asked, "With April's Fool Day recently gone by, what are some of your favorite pranks you've seen, either by individuals or businesses?"

Here are your replies:
:iconthemaideninblack:

The hovering mouse, the McFly something, was great. :giggle: I also enjoyed the Google Maps Pac Man game.


:iconneurotype:

CERN discovered The Force. :eager:


:icontiganusi:

My own April fools prank on CRLiterature duh. Totally not biased. :stare:


:iconmeoagcat:

Youtube's Darude - Sandstorm prank quite amused me. I wish they kept the "Add music" button, lol.


:iconobsydiandreamer:

On the morning of April Fools Day, I left my house early that morning to find a large parcel on my doorstep. Opening it, I found a single can of Spam.

I, along with about 7 other friends in my suburb, had been "spammed".



Here is my reply:
:iconsingingflames:

I can't remember who did it, but a business released a new browsing "ap" for their products: a catalog. It had easy, swiping motion to scroll forward and back (paper pages), HD glossy finish (photos), an easy off mode (shut it) and unlimited battery life (because, you know, there are no batteries).


New discussion topic!


If you could choose any movie, TV, game, etc., franchise to work with on a professional level (i.e. be a paid writer for), which would you choose and why?

Have any news, groups or contests you want me to feature? Comment below and I'll include it next month!
