Dear Teen MeYou know what? Even as you, we'd both agree starting this off with a "Dear Timothy" is useless. We both know why I'm here to write this.Dear Teen Me by timmy64
You're gay. It'd probably help to sit you down and explain the mechanics of all of this to you; but, let's face it, you're gonna need a couple of years of denial to sort this out any way. Mum and Dad are okay with it, you know, and these days we're in a stable relationship. It won't be easy though.
I'd love to be able to sit here and say that the next ten years are going to be a walk in the park. I'd love to be able to tell you that it gets better, and that things will run smoothly. They won't. Things will get worse before they get better. Your first relationship, well, he's a drug addict these days. Oh, you will care for him, and I still do; but, you won't stay with him long. Fear will get the better of you, and you'll run. You'll keep running for about two years. You'll get another fling or two, and after a while the damage will start to pile up.

Want to live in a devApartment? Community Project!Over a year ago, I submitted a project called "devTown" http://lady-blue.deviantart.com/art/Introducing-devTown-32675092 , and since then, I always knew I wanted to do a bigger devTown project. However, it never seemed to be a workable idea... until now. After about a year of pondering, I've decided to create a devApartment!Want to live in a devApartment? Community Project! by Lady-Blue
The concept: What would it be like if all of us deviants lived together in a huge apartment building? I imagine that it'd be a fun, multi-media, colorful building full of personality. In this project, I'm giving you the oppurtunity to open the "window to your world" and show us what your home in dA is like.
What you're doing: You create a window for the apartment, and I'll put them all together to create an apartment building. Each window is an expression of your art form and your own personality.
The window: Each window will be 300x200 pixels. It can be any media, from pixel art to photography, traditional paintin

AIDS Walk 2007They say that one good turn deserves another and after the outpouring of love and support I received for my weekend to end breast cancer, I'm inclined to believe that. As such, I'm writing today to draw attention to the fight against AIDS, a cause near and dear to many but more specifically, my friend GeneratingHype. For those of us old enough to remember, the subject of AIDS was a media bonanza in the 90's and it was constantly addressed in every newspaper, political platform, tv spot and magazine. They talked about it and they talked about it often. Unfortunately, that need to talk has slowed down, but the epidemic that is AIDS has not.AIDS Walk 2007 by Moonbeam13
Over 25 million people have been lost to AIDS so far, and 4.3 million people were infected with HIV in 2006. The spread of HIV is quickening, with more people infected in 2006 than in any previous year.
Why do I care? I care because it affects people I care about, I care.. because
