If you have a group related to literature, send an affiliation request. If your group is related to Visual Poetry/Prose, Comic Book and/or Manga art exclusively, you're also welcome to send out a request. :la:

:bulletgreen: VISION :bulletgreen:

This home is support for those who are amateur (or professional) writers that has less than 300 watchers.

You, the member, should have accomplished to acquire over 300 admirers of your work with your contributions in this group. Once you have made it, you will be out of the group so that you can continue on your journey on your own. You've come this far! :handshake:

Note: If you have more than 300 watchers, :+devwatch: instead of joining as a member. If you like (and it would be awesome), you can give tips for any member, who has questions or doubts, in the comment box. If you do this frequently, you may be invited to be a "contributor".

:bulletred: RULES :bulletred:

:police: By NOT obeying the rules, you will be out of the group and if you dare try and do something that's out of the limit, you will be reported if the situation is severe. So, don't try to be funny.

:bulletred: If you are called out for a suspected (or clear) violation of any rule that you will not follow after a warning, you will be removed from our group. This applies to Co-Founders and Contributors as well.

:bulletblue: No SPAM
:bulletblue: No RACISM
:bulletblue: No SEXISM
:bulletblue: No BASHING
:bulletblue: No SLURS
:bulletblue: No CUSSING
:bulletblue: No CHAIN MESSAGES
:bulletblue: No TROLLING :unimpressed:
:bulletblue: No THEFT (Please don't steal hard work from others, try to do something on your own. That's how all of us are good artists. :nod: Practice makes perfect. :excited:)

:bulletred: You can affiliate with our group if it's related to literature.

:bulletred: Only submit written works. Do not send in drawings; exceptions are comics and visual poetry/prose. Visual poetry/prose must either incorporate poetry into the image (an image with words around it) or contain a poem or story in the description. Visual poetry is not simply an image. :meow:

:bulletred: You must add your contributions in the correspondent folder. Do NOT add them in the Featured folder; it will be used to represent some of the best artworks available in this group.

:bulletred: Works not written in English are acceptable. Add them in its correspondent category.

:bulletred: Do not send a request in order to be a "co-founder". I will do it.
:bulletred: You can send a request in order to be a "contributor".

Note: With these last two rules, certain responsibilities are given. For instance, if you want to be a contributor, you are responsible in organizing and updating the gallery. For Co-Founders, if you want to be one, you must send me a PM first and I will see then if you are qualified. The responsibility? Updating blogs, gallery and notifying any inconvenience/violation occurring in the group.

:bulletred: "18+ literature" is applied to any sexual, erotic and/or extremely violent content. If it needs a mature filter, it belongs in this category!

:bulletred: If you wish to promote any account in which you write articles or how-tos, such as Hubpages or Squidoo, you can send them to me in a PM and I will add them on a blog.

:bulletred: Admins reserve the right to deny works or members from joining due to members not following the above rules.

:bulletgreen: Suggestions are welcome. :la:

Difficult to follow? Thanks for the visit, but don't bother joining in. :meow:
Well, it's Saturday which means "Feature time!"

Today, we're doing something different. We're featuring :iconzakielmori:

Here is a bit about him:

"Hi, I'm Zakiel. I basically got into writing because I lived much of my life as a total liar. To this day even, many of my closest friends find it difficult to know when I'm telling the truth, because the stories I spun were just that great (not to be self-congratulatory). I wrote my first story The Maesters, from age 13-15 and it's awful: from premise to execution, it's the worst thing I've ever read. But, I keep it as a piece of self-encouragement. In my mind, all of my work is terrible, so I use The Maesters as measuring rule to judge how much better I've gotten. I'd advise everyone else to do the same.

As for the real world, I punch a clock for 40 hours a day and I'm working on my Master's in Applied Mathematics. When I game, it's usually an RPG (2016 will be a great year in that regard). My music is far too diverse to put on paper; for example, my work PC has a playlist consisting of A$AP Ferg, Lily Allen, Sex Twister, and Voltaire, among others. As for a closing note, I would like to remind everyone that Aeris was the primary antagonist of FFVII and jet fuel can't melt steel beams."

Let's check out his works as well!

Rex Ultimus Prologue: The Wrong PlaceThe boy awoke, confused as to what had transpired the night before; why was he here; where, exactly, is here; why could he not remember the mission? What was certain was that he was on a mission; he was a mercenary, trained from birth in the art of war. The dusty floor creaked as he stood up. He surveyed his surroundings: a large room packed with other children and despair, and dimly lit; a few troughs, filled with a murky fluid that at some point might have been water.
Rising to his feet, he looked down at his clothes and sighed in contempt; a very expensive armor woven with Kevlar and magic-resistant fibers replaced with what appeared to be some escaped slave’s old tatters. Certainly, captors would not have disposed of such a set of armor – or maybe he just hoped; it would take him months of odd jobs to fund another suit like his previous.
Taking a more detailed survey of his surroundings, he realized he was the first one awake. He noticed a young girl sleeping next to hi
Rex Ultimus Chapter 1: DivineAaron was truly an enigma; he had been credited with systematically destroying several child abduction rings around the continent of Patria for the past couple of months, but there were no official documentation on him. The most consistent reports claimed him to be an ebony-skinned boy, possibly from Solaris, who was either a ninja or a mercenary, though he was no older than thirteen, and goes by the pseudonym “Light”. He supposedly was an escaped convict or trained mercenary, hellbent on a mission: crippling the countries of Patria, uniting them under his leadership, or some peculiar combination of the two. Concrete information on Aaron was sparse, to say the least.
Marcus, the lone swordsman, had traveled to Victoria, which was the last apparent residence of Aaron, with nothing but a set of travel clothes and a backpack. Marcus knew relying on Victoria’s finest would lead him nowhere; he needed someone who could find anyone in Patria at a moment’s notice, an a
Rex Ultimus Chapter 3: Of All the Gin Joints[Now entering the city of Lucre. We should arrive at Station 8513 in approximately 10 minutes. I repeat…]
The intercom had awakened Ivory. She looked up and, after realizing that she fell asleep on Marcus’s lap, hurriedly sat up.
“Excuse me!” she exclaimed. Marcus snickered lightly and continued reading his book, uninterrupted. “Still reading that book? You’re an addict.” She swiped the book from Marcus and began reading.
“Huh, what?” Marcus shifted for a moment, then noticed his book in Ivory’s hand. “Hey, I was still reading that!” he yelled as he reached for his book, but Ivory simply evaded him.
‘Epicus Gilgamesh: Heros Primus.’ Why in Latin?”
“I prefer to read the original text and interpret it for myself. Information is often lost in translation.” Marcus reached for the book again, but Ivory casually evaded him and continued reading.
Deinde didicit Gilgame
Rex Ultimus Chapter 4: Amicitia“I always liked the view from your room,” Ivory told Weiss, the two lying in bed as she watched the sunrise. Weiss didn’t respond, still asleep after their night together. “If only you were ever awake to enjoy it.” Ivory gets out the bed, careful not to wake him from his slumber. “Really, this is best for the both of us,” she said as she quickly got dressed. “You’re moving on with your life (whether you like it or not), so I guess it’s time I do the same. Thanks for the good times, and you’d better not let that bitch scorn you. Love you, babe.” After leaving a short message for him, Ivory exited the house via his window.
Weiss woke a few hours, after receiving another call from Felicity. Once again he ignored the call, just allowing his voicemail to pick it up.
Gone already?
Weiss walked to his bathroom sink and splashed water on his face. Looking up at the mirror, he found Ivory’s message, written wit

Neatness! Looks like we've got ourself an awesome writer here. So drop a few llamas, watch him, do whatever you can to be supportive. I'll be back next saturday for yet another feature! Yay!

Until then, I'm Jchrispole. And that is all.
