:bulletyellow: So, when we say that we're about helping the unknown... what do we mean? Well, in order to qualify as 'unknown', deviants should meet the following requirements:

    1) They've received fewer than 10,000 page views a year

    2) They've received an average of approximately fewer than 15 favourites per deviation (the number of groups a deviation is submitted to is, however, taken into account)

    3) They've got deviations worth featuring! So no stick-drawings or photographs of your feet. Unless they're very good stick-drawings, or you have very nice feet

:bulletblue: We will feature any artist who meets these criteria. They don't have to be a member of helping-the-unknown in order to be featured by us. Don't forget: you do need to be a member to submit to the gallery!

:bulletred: Please note that we accept self-suggestions to the gallery, but not to the favourites folders.
- So you can submit your work to our gallery, and a work of a favourite artist to our favourites! See this journal for more info!

:bulletorange: Please also be aware that we will not always feature your suggestions. Please don't be disheartened though, and do keep on suggesting! :bulletorange:

:bulletpurple: If you have made a successful suggestion to us, you are welcome to submit to our Suggesters' Artwork folder. Please see this journal entry for more details.

Poisoned-Pleasure's Gallery





Conversations with strangers when you are alone    She is blood-covered, swill-soaked. She is a tiny invalid between these filthy and expansive sheets. The bed is too big to fit her, but she is too heavy to fit in with a living world.
    From the bed’s steep edge, something threatens her. It is thin and calculated, a peel of shadow with crowds for eyes. It is ghostly and ghastly with only bloodstains for legs and a neck like an aging vulture.
    “Where are you from?” she asks, words from a mouse or a wounded rabbit; from prey.

    From another place,
it chimes in her head, while the statue itself lays stares upon her and all the walls around her. It sounds like shocks through her skull, whisking the voices out, and ushering a new one in. A voice like dust or moths or chalk, something too old to be light and too forever to be heavy.
    “Why are you here?”

    Another traveler to hold your hand,
it hums.
    She cann
And Salt the Earth         I still think of the knocks at our door. I imagine they haven’t stopped. The raking and banging of knuckles dragging minutes into hours, because I knew. I could tell. I told him not to let them in.
         I’ve learned memory leaves spores in our wounds. Cut out your eyes, and you will still see them. Cut off your ears, and you will still hear them. Cut off your tongue—you understand. Memory has rotted me to stinking bone.
Through memory, nightmares become fits, restraints, injections, tremors, whimpers. Fluorescent lighting whispers to me with stories far older than their bulbs.
         If I am sick, I am only sick with horror. No doctor can undo the Devil for me. The blood that was caked in my lifelines was dirt or ash, but I felt the spillage of my own. The pillage, plunder, ravaging of my body by the reeking hundreds. I am possessed.
         I am possess

Gripping short stories appear to be madouija's forte, and they'll leave you coming back for more and more.

More Journal Entries


We have featured under-appreciated and talented deviants to help get them maximum exposure since 3 May 2009.

When we feature a deviant in a news article, we send them a note to let them know.

We also add one of their deviations to our Collections.

It really is as simple as that! :dalove:

Thank you so much for the feature and invite! Strangely though it seems you featured/added-to-gallery the same one twice, and I was just wondering before I say yes to both if something got mixed up or you wanted to them to different galleries or something?
