Random from DDs I Featured

As a Community Volunteer, me and the others feature art we particularly enjoyed here daily. They're called Daily Deviations. :heart:
I do this for the Literature gallery and so if you read something you like or wrote something you're proud of you should send it to me via note so I can read it!

Daily Deviations, they're a thing, and I do them too.


New watchers, old watchers -- what's the thing that made you join DA, if new, and if old what keeps you here? 

4 deviants said I will tell you because I'm a cool kid. :la:
3 deviants said Other. (you better tell me, or no sad cookies for you)
2 deviants said :stare: it's a secret (but I'm really nice so you will tell me anyway)
No deviants said I want to share both! (PLS DO)
No deviants said There really was and is no reason. (well aren't you a sad, sad cookie?)

Stamps make me happy.

I even divided these into sections. :dummy:

This prompt was inspired by a prompt we saw in the very popular Flash Fiction Month held by Flash-Fic-Month, and considering it's a perfect fit for a Fantasy group, we're upgrading it a little. ;) so read on for the new challenge, and for the lucky winner of last month's challenge!

Chinese mythology by rororei

Poetic warrior, I'm like Achilles fighting smarter.
I'm Ares in the flesh so the lessers wanna fight me.
-- from Fairytale Mythology of YouInventedMe 

The Gods of Tomorrow

In the days of old, gods were beings capable of commanding the seas, ripping the skies in two, bending nature and Destiny to their will. Of course, the gods back then had gifts inspired by the necessities of the day, right? The tasks and parts of the everyday life that men and women relied heavily on, the worries and needs of the time. 

What about now, though? What would the God/Goddess of Fertility look like when we have so many "aids" to get a woman pregnant (or not)? And with all the technology and advancements in society, what kind of deities would rule our world... or the future's?

Classic Mythology Odin by RichardPace

Odin sits on a sidewalk bench,
with bare brown ankles
bobbing. His hair is made
of cigarette smoke; his eyes
are the color of mountains.
-- from Odin by anapests-and-ink 

The Prompt

There are many unthinkable, surprising things about this future... the rapid technological improvements, the incredible breakthroughs in all fields of science, the changes in our lives that all of these cause. And who do we have to thank for? Where are the temples to worship the God of Phones Never Out of Battery, or Wi-Fi Always Working? I can almost picture them, the Twin Goddesses of Vaccines and Anti-Vaccines bickering day after day, sitting on a marble balcony, sipping green tea and tweeting lazily.

Gods by BurenErdene

of the children? I muse,
They giggle - full with purpose.

The children
are most lost of all, toys
of the gods.

-- from The Gods Are Fishing by crazynloveless

Your prompt, either visual or written, is to portray a modern-need divinity, and their story. In a world where gods seem to matter less and less, where the space in our hearts for faith has been steadily replaced by other "priorities", who do we really need to ask for guidance, support, and favours to?

Your deity can be any gender, any ethnicity, any make... as long as what it protects and represents is a 19th-to-21st century invention (or an invention to arrive in the future!). It can be steampunk, sci-fi, or maybe they like to wear cowboy clothes? We don't care, as long as it makes sense with your context! :D

Maybe you'll tell us of the birth of the Goddess of Giant Robots, protecting the pilots and keeping those armor plates shiny and proud?
                        Or show us the rise to the Olympus of the Lord of Jukeboxes, slowly beaten into oblivion by the harbingers of portable music devices?

The possibility are endless! Just please keep in mind that we don't accept WIPs, so submit finished works. And writers, please keep your works under 3000 words!

Harder Challenges, for Strong Hearts

Your first harder challenge is...

  • both for visual artists and writers, your artwork must contain some form of HUMOUR. Make it funny! It can be just a detail or the key note of the work, as long as it's there. You'd think we'd go for horror, it being October, but we are sadists. Sorrynotsorry.

And if you aim for the over-9000 level of holiness, try this:

  • visual artist? Your divinity must have animal characteristics. Is it whiskers, or a full-on coat of fur? It's up to you, be creative and think outside the box!

  • writer? Use an unreliable narrator. What is that, you ask? Well... "Whether due to age, mental disability or personal involvement, an unreliable narrator provides the reader with either incomplete or inaccurate information as a result of these conditions." So, an unreliable narrator is a narrator who, for a reason of your choice, doesn't exactly tell the truth...  show us how you implement that with the "humour" element of the first challenge!

Prompt Prizes!

Goddess of Destiny by Yayashin

Interstellar girl
amid a field of blank stars
on her meta-throne 

-- from Goddess III.5.9 by lombregrise

Joseph Louis Gay-Lussac
Your friendly - but a bit of a troll, admittedly - next-door neighbour, who offers Lit Halloween Trivia quizzes on a whim . I love cookies, gaming, Magic:the Gathering and anime; I love silence, music and nature; I love long walks, being lazy, I love silly things like earrings, jeans and nail polish (and I have tons of them all, beware). I love experimenting with my hair because let's admit it, it always grows back eventually.
I love smiles, cold weather, and I love when my toes are warm next to the fire. I love reading, writing, and improving my English thanks to both of those; I love #thewrittenrevolution and all that it lets me to for the community, I love the happiness it gives me.
I love the friends I have made, and those that I will make tomorrow. I love you.
