Boom today...

The server suddenly without any reason turned off today. Then the message database got corrupted. Then when the message database was getting fixed the server kept on crashing because I started too many database recoveries at the same time.

Now it's back though, and I hope not more than some message has been lost.

A gorgeous piece of fanart!

This beautiful digital painting of Isabela, a Dragon Age 2 character, really catches the eye. She really seems to challenge the viewer with that look: sultry, yet fierce. The technique is excellent, too.

This fantastic work is brought to you by [astraeacaron] (artist) and [Linderel] (nominator).

More poems


it started with a bump,

knees touching under the table, and wine -
orion looking at our reaching hands.
pulses of pleasure rushing up my spine
as we lay upon the cooling, warm sands.

a short retreat to the familiar,
then back by elastic, invisible;
an invincible bond, auxiliar
to our need to try the impossible.

then, a morning of ends and beginnings;
new shorelines and nourishing upwellings -
a deep breath, a silent sigh, a longing.
gratification of struggles changing.

now, our streams are clogged by alluvium,
heavy sediment settling on our will.
bitterness erodes the synovium
that soothed our voices, our feverish chill.

this crepuscular part of our travels
has been dark, but now turns towards light.
as the course of our road unravels
we take off, leaving bumps out of sight.

[To the Welkin]

I'd like to introduce you to one of Elftown's fun, relaxed artists: [To the Welkin]!


Is there a story behind your username?
Perhaps not the most original inspiration behind a username, but it's actually a shortened version of one of my favorite black metal albums entitled 'Anthems To The Welkin At Dusk', by the band Emperor.

What all do you do on Elftown?
I lurk, communicate with old friends, write private thoughts in my little diary, and scout for art that speaks to me. I enjoy posting little snippets of my own writings and creations; I'm usually quite shy about my art but Elftown has helped me to come out of my shell a bit. There is something very frightening yet liberating about exposing your innermost depths to the eyes of others.

Do you prefer using a specific medium for art?
Typically I gravitate towards charcoals, pen/ink, and the biggest paper I can find. However, more recently in the last year or so I have dabbled in found object sculpture, due to having an apartment and no money to buy decor. You have to get creative when you're poor, haha. I experimented with random gadgets, car and clock parts, woodwork, even silverware. It opened me up to a whole new experience and perspective. I hope to continue this trend and not revert to one specific medium each time I feel an artistic endeavor coming on.
What do you do for a living?
I am a hair stylist. It's not exactly my dream job, but I am determined to find the loopholes of being an artist in modern society. I think it is important to enjoy what you are doing in life. I'm figuring it out as I go along. I do not desire vast amounts of money or recognition, just connectivity with like-minded souls, and endless open doors, as a result of continuously taking risks and putting myself and my art out there.

This Featured Story is written by the talented [Lacrymosa].

Deservingly Starving,
I choke down my muffin,
fake blueberries and all.
I'm still hungry but I find it easy to shun the hunger
when all I see in the mirror is the ugly, fat, gross

Please note that while both deep and moving, this story has harsh topics such as drugs and abuse. We hope you enjoy reading this deep story. <img15*0:45154_1117568632.gif>
