Where is the Devious Love?
An article promoting positivity in the community
And general warmth and fuzziness
Volume I | Volume II
I wanted to put together a series of articles that focus on the opposite of drAma, instead focusing on positives. So here is the second issue in the Devious Love series!! Scroll down and enjoy! (It's a big issue, I've had so many notes filled with love to include here!)
Sweet messages from the community
I'm not good with this stuff, it's not in my nature or my nurture, or any of the other defining aspects you can name. There are some artists though that have impressed me personally- not also because of thier art, but because of their personalities, helpful words, and overall great general nature. I've always wanted to give them a shout out and a thank you. meregoddess, bolsterstone, Valedhelven, sTaPeLgEkBlOm and pullingcandy.
BUT the biggest shout out I have to give is to someone I only know a little, because his attitude and good nature while facing extreme circumstances dealing with MS: 270924.deviantart.com/
Just read his journal link here: 270924.deviantart.com/journal/…

WhyMustIWrite WhyMustIWrite is a wonderful author with insightful stories and words of encouragement for everyone she meets. She's kind to everyone she meets and never stops trying to get better. She has a busy schedule and a hectic life, but she'll find time to sit down and comment on (or beta!) your fanfic no matter how bad it is, and will always respond to the reviews and comments she gets, often at the late hours of the night. Her art is steadily improving as she keeps practicing and getting better and better. She just needs to post more art.
Why, if you read this, I want you to know how much I look up to you and that you're one of the best friends I've ever had. I think you're amazing and don't give yourself enough credit (or sleep!)
KakashiKrazed1 KakashiKrazed1, aka KakashiKrazed on fanfiction.net is another good writer. She keeps writing updates after update without complaining even though she has a full arm cast. She constantly encourages her peers and is very polite. Like Why, she also responds to her reviews.
Yo Krazed, get better soon. You're a great friend and I'm glad to know you! I want you to know Don't forget to GET SOME SLEEP!!

I have something about my beloved sister Lonstermonster. She went away thousand miles and live far away from the family. Because of much work, she doesnt have the time, to visit us in Bavaria and so I miss her a lot:
Lonstermonster, you are a wunderfull person. Every talk, every chat, every minute we spent together is so much fun. I am happy to have you as a friend. You are an wonderful artist, too. Your pictures are not perfect, but your style is awesome and you always bubbling over with creativity, liveliness and ideas. Behind every picture is a story and it fascinates me again and again, how you do this poses and perspectives in such a confident way.
You made a wonderful mug for me, with this motive: lonstermonster.deviantart.com/…
And on my birthday you made this awesome wrapping paper for the present: lonstermonster.deviantart.com/…
My original characters converted as Navi from Avatar. Its awesome!
But, the most wonderful gift art is this:
It shows my two beloved but dead cats, which you, Lonstermonster, personified and eternalized in this over cute picture. For this Ill love you till the end of the world.
Lonstermonster, I miss you! You are so far away!
