More Yu-Gi-Oh! Abridged series quotes. You're all doomed...! *cackles*

I realised over these past few weeks how much I miss writing these journals. I should really stop putting reading your deviations off.

No promises. But I will make the effort required of an admin.

So let's get to it :)

Ask a silly question...Picture a large, in-ground swimming pool. The water is calm, the sun shining, and an obviously well-to-do couple are sitting by a cast-iron patio table with a large umbrella.
"Howard dear," purred the wife, sunning herself. "What would you do if I were to die tomorrow?"
"Why, Lovey dear, I would be extremely upset," said the husband, glancing up from his newspaper. "Why do you ask such a question?"
"Would you remarry?"
"No, of course not, my dear," said the husband, laying his paper down on the glass tabletop and giving her his full attention.
"Don't you like being married?"
"Of course I do, my dearest. You are the reason I exist."
"Then why wouldn't you remarry?"
"Very well, then," said the husband, "I'd remarry."
"You would?" said the wife, looking vaguely hurt.
"Yes," said the husband, "if such is your wish."
"Would you sleep with her in our bed?" asked the wife after a long pause, during which the husband resumed reading his newspaper.
"Well yes, I suppose I would," replied the hus
A Strange Encounter - The Green Smoke Morning    It was a gray, sleepy morning and green smoke poured out in a straight tower from the chimney of a little stone cabin in the Alaskan wilderness. The cabin sat in a field of tall, green grass that seemed to be on the verge of waking from a long sleep at the base of a mountain that reared up suddenly from the earth like a tidal wave.
    The countryside would’ve been quiet, except for the chirping of small birds that occasionally flew out from the woods across the field, if the witch and daemon who lived inside the cabin hadn’t been making so much noise.
    “RATCHET!” Emma, the witch, yelled. “Where’d my bow go?”
    “It’s right behind you,” came a dry reply. “You put it down ten seconds ago.”
    “OH!” The witch exclaimed loudly. She spun in place, nearly knocking into the wall of the narrow entryway, and found her worn-out recurve bow exactly where

This week's winners are

Ask a Silly Question by 914four (who has won before I might add! Still getting around to reading your recommendation and book, will get to them eventually and let you know my two cents!).

I read this after having had a very long day, and for whatever reason it made me smile. A soft chuckle, the cold drink in hand, and the irony of it all struck me deeply, and shook something loose (in the best way possible). Thanks for writing :)

A Strange Encounter: The Green Smoke Morning by EmmaEatsRainbows! If memory continues to serve, you were the winner chosen in our first monthly prompt :)

I particularly fell in love with the relationship between Ratchet and Emma, I loved the concept of the former being the voicing of her doubts and I'm waiting with baited breath for more :)

N e w   M e m b e r s !

Welcome, fellow fiends and acolytes :D *Coughs* I meant ladies and gentlemen, losing track, apologies <,<


Many thanks for being a part of our group, hope you enjoy posting, reading and sharing your thoughts with us all :)

Gingersanps takes this round :) I'm assuming you had originally intended for Gingersnaps, but it was most likely taken... either way, you win! Here's a cookie! :cookie:

P r o m p t   o f   t h e   M o n t h

Still haven't come up with anything dazzling. Will most likely come up with some for the month of June, stay tuned for more info on that :x

Q u o t e   o f   t h e   W e e k

I would've quoted something. But I can't fit the entire song in here I don't think. I will on the other hand leave you all with a mysterious link...! Click at your own peril!…

That's all for now.

More updates in the near future? I hope so!

And on another note...

How have you all been? Reading anything of interest? Or are there other projects keeping you busy as bees? Share! :)

Until next time!

Hello! Panda Emoji-28 (Hello Hi) [V2] 
Um, I hope this doesn't sound dumb or anything (lol)
but I'm a total noob at writing literature! 
Would it still be alright if I join, even though I don't have much experience? ^^;

Of course ;)

If a story has extremely vulgar language but nothing else, does that mean that it should still be filtered as mature.
The-Archaeon Featured By Owner Apr 1, 2015  Hobbyist Writer
Yes, it should still be filtered as mild with a warning for language. It's in the options as you submit your deviation :)
DCMarvelman Featured By Owner Apr 2, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Ok, thanks.
