The Best of Today

:dalove: The Best of Today is my newest project in support of my fellow deviants.

I will feature a single piece that significantly impressed me daily. This feature will stay up 24 hours.

To view past The Best of Today features, visit here.

DDs I've Suggested

I Suggest DDs by ClefairyKid
I am an avid Daily Deviation suggester. I try to make at least one suggestion every day.

Thus far, these pieces have been chosen. :deviation:

If you would like me to view a piece you believe is DD worthy: feel free to :note: me.

Art For Me

Here's my way of saying...

Thank you! :dummy:

All art featured in this collection was created for me by other deviants either as a commission, prize, gift, etc.

Go admire all the absurdly amazingness within! :tantrum:


Little Red Riding Hood by sanguisGelidus

Little Red Riding Hood

by sanguisGelidus
I would love it if someone would buy me AquaSixio's La fable de la girafe. Not only is it gorgeous & creative but it's my favorite fucking animal. :stare:
CHECK IT OUT, NOW! :happybounce:

If anyone is feeling generous or perhaps... feels like wasting some of their hard-earned :points: and/or money - feel free to buy me something I don't actually need. :tighthug:

The Need-To-Read List

My Need-To-Read Book List
OfOneSoul here. :wave:

After the huge response to my forum post:

I'm not dead... yet.

Journal Entry: Thu Jun 20, 2013, 7:08 PM

Seriously though. Don't be worried.

... just kidding, maybe you should be.

First of all, I want to apologize for my long absence. I don't know what to say other than...

:icondeathglareplz: :iconawkwardplz: :icondeathglareplz:

... I'm really, really, really...

:iconcriesplz: :iconsplz::iconoplz::iconrplz::iconrplz::iconyplz: :iconcriesplz:

For real though, I am. I'm sorry to everyone who actually missed me
and to everyone who didn't even realize I was gone.

I won't go into detail about why I've been gone... :iconteheplz:

- but if you'd like to know, :note: me personally about your concerns. :paranoid:

On another note...

- how have YOU been!?

Reconciliation Project!

In your comments, do two things:

1. Tell me the best thing that's happened to you since I've been gone.

2. Link me your favorite deviation you've done since I've been... well... gone. :faint:

... okay, ONE more thing. :shrug:

3. What's the best movie you've seen lately?

- cause, seriously?

Man Of Steel

... was really good. :stare:

- or maybe Henry Cavill is just really hot. :iconteheplz:

It's my time to shine! :iconwooooplz:

Stamp: OfOneSoul by BloodshotInk

My name is Kimberly Leffel and I am an artistic hobbyist. I draw because I have some skill and enjoy learning new things. I am mostly a writer and am working on several novel projects, including: The Wanderers, Drowning Sirens, The Abandonment, Sundown Ranch, & Destiny's Wicked Games.

When it comes to writing I hope to make a career of it... all it takes is one day at a time. For a long time I forgot about DA, but now that I'm in a stable living environment, have an amazing boyfriend, and plenty of artistic time, I can get back on the bandwagon. :love:

I have officially been a member of this community for 2 Years. In January 2013 I was made a Senior Member by fourteenthstar; check out the Seniority Announcement here. For now, I continue my plan to help other artists of this wonderous website. But what is my next dA goal?

Community Volunteer, yo!? :iconpimpplz:

Can't wait to see what new works DA has to offer me today!

Short Story Commision
The Doctors In"He's probably dead," Roger exclaimed as the two kittens giggled mischievously behind him.
Krystal and Amanda had arrived at Coleman Park appropriately attired for the evening. Their previously decided-upon costumes seemed much sexier in person than when Roger was helping them choose outfits at Wal-Mart. Being the edgy person that he was, he had politely declined their offer of buying a disguise for him. He had never celebrated the holiday, and instead purchased a t-shirt that furthered his rebelliousness with bright yellow text that read, 'I don't do costumes.'
His head down and his hands in his pockets, he paced himself up the paved hill that lead to the local, haunted legend. Krystal swung her faux tail playfully and adjusted the large black ears that wouldn't stay in her curly hair despite the obscene amounts of hairspray she had employed. Amanda clicked her heels across the ground. She sprinted in front of Roger and slowed to a smooth strut seemingly fo
, Winter Storms"I know I shouldn't."
Thor stared at the metal grates beneath his feet. His armor had grown heavy since the Avengers' victory against the alien invasion. Now that a war was prevented, he had to face his inner battle. Would he risk losing his brother again?
He sat in the back of the armored hummer provided by S.H.I.E.L.D, ignoring the trace blonde hairs that fell around his face. In a way, he hoped they hid his indecision. He brushed his hand against the side of his chin, relishing in the familiar sound of his stubble scratching his callused palms.
A low, muffled scoff resonated from the other side of the vehicle. Thor leaned back against the vibrating walls of the steel-clad car and stared sorrowfully into two fuming, green eyes. A storm was thundering overhead, causing the hummer to jolt and swerve uncontrollably. Still, it was perhaps the only moment he and Loki would have before facing Odin's judgment. Thor eyed the metallic, vented mask that covered the bottom half of

Leon's eyes darted away from the auburn hair that swayed gently as her green eyes met his. He instead focused his attention on his aging professor who stood at his computer, angrily pointing at the projection of microscopic molecules on the wall. Professor Kennedy had noticed Leon's attention span waning ever since Kat the TA stepped into the room.
"Mr. Atkinson, could you please provide me with the scientific definition of cell division that we have just discussed."
Rupert Kennedy's wrinkled face smirked as if he were pleased with his capture of an inattentive student. Leon smiled, refusing to be outdone in the presence of an auburn hottie.
"What other one is there?"
"Excuse me?" Professor Kennedy demanded as he lowered his arm questioningly.
"You asked for the scientific definition. Is there an unscientific one?" The class chuckled amongst themselves, glad for a moment of entertainment however poor the joke was. Kat's smile glittered across the room and reached

If you are desiring a short story of any kind - whether it's a fan-fiction like Winter Storms, or a prompt-based thriller like Romancing a Bodysnatcher - then I am the writer for you. :dummy:
