dA contest - artistic inspirationA young woman named Luana loved making art, and practiced sketching all day long to become the very best in all her town. But one day, she was completely stumped. She looked around her room, full of art pieces featuring mystical dictionaries, sci-fi landscapes of a futuristic Skopun, and a portrait of David Hasselhoff that looked so real, you could start a conversation with it. But nothing inspired her. Had she really created everything there was to create? Depressed, she looked out her window, and made a wish on a nearby kangaroo for inspiration to return to her. The next morning, she sprung out of bed, and used her skill in sketching to create the most beautiful deviation depicting sausages lurking anyone had ever seen. That night, she shouted out the window, "Thanks, kangaroo!"
dA contest - 12th Birtday CelebrationFor deviantART's 12th birthday, the staff decided to throw a bloody surprise party for Fella. They gathered at Fella's favorite restaurant, The Fancy Giraffe, with presents in hand. Llama brought Fella to the door and once they stepped in, all of the staff screamed, "Holy cabbage killer!!" Fella was so shocked that he instantly sneezed. He opened his presents to find that Llama had given him 12 socks. He was amazed! He would never forget that night.
dA contest - Wise adviceMy great-grandfather used to tell me, "Don't chase after guts because you'll only end up with a limb in your ear." I never quite understood his advice until one Nose Picking Day, I was gardening with my best friend Hugo. All of a sudden, we found an underground tunnel! It was sassy and spooky sounds came from deep within. Hugo saw something interesting inside, jumped in, and I never saw her again. Great-granddaddy was right!

They were pitted against each other in a battle of wits, and Lola emerged as the predictable victor! His achievement is celebrated every National Snail Day.
Volpi.You will find that the story you tell
is very rarely your own. In Lucca,
even the smallest pebbles
breathe in the warm sunlight.
Knotted stones and cobbled roads
beat out a paper-dry heartbeat heat
my city breathes in and out,
inhales sparrow air.
It's writing a story.
You are the pen.
You will find that in Lucca
the daisy chains forge fire
in side streets and back alleys.
Teenagers intertwine. Tell me,
odd flower, are you still closed?
Here we are colored wax;
the heat of the city melts us.
We run into each other, rhapsody
of pigments. Operas are our specialties.
Open up; feel the reds.
If not, try and see them. There is a place
of deep knife marks, a street
long as midnight
you may learn something there.
Valentina's voice glimmers like red wine.
You may enjoy intoxications. Still,
know alcohol has no story
and will swallow your own.
Find the sign with the wolf on it.
You'll know the place. Epiphanies ring true as church-bells.
Lucca still guides the wanderers
to well sp
