My deviantART StoryToday marks deviantART's 14th birthday! This is truly an exciting time in deviantART’s history, and I'm confident that the next few months will be some of our best ever. It might sound cliché or exaggerated, but we’re in a position to change the arts (and the world) through technology, empowering artists of all shapes and sizes to do truly amazing things. But before I get too far ahead of myself, I'd like to take a minute to participate in "My deviantART Story" to document a few of the ways that deviantART has helped me grow as a person.Importance of TravelBefore deviantART's World Tour in 2009, when spyed and I visited nine countries in two months, I'd never been outside of North America. The World Tour gave me a deep appreciation for travel that I wouldn't have gotten if not for the amaz

New Username Symbols: Extended ThoughtsTwo weeks ago, we released two new products – deviant and art Mentions and new username symbols. Gratefully, and as we'd hoped, many deviants are embracing these changes in exactly the ways we'd anticipated, and the ways we ourselves did over the past several months of testing. While some deviants embraced the changes, it's fair to say that others have felt surprise, curiosity, and maybe even shock. These feelings are totally normal, but for the large part, there's a hope present. A positive outlook. The first steps in a new era that makes the way for our goals in the future, and, at the same time, removes clutter and confusion that new deviants often experience.As with any change, there are a handful of deviants that don't understand why we made the choices we did
Country Treatment Chapter 1 - AndleyThe rural country air was warm, but not overbearingly so, and a light breeze ruffled the leaves of the few trees that scattered the hills. A squirrel scarpered up the trunk of a large tree, and horses grazed peacefully on the grass. It was almost-silent, away from the hustle-and-bustle of city life, though there was a small town nearby, the residents weren't incredibly noisy.The town nearby was relatively small, and in it resided a couple-hundred people. Most houses were large, came with a couple of acres of land, and a stable. They dotted the countryside just outside the town, and created a homey, picturesque image.In the town, there was only three shops, a restaurant/ cafe, a bank, and a town hall. There was also a school which took all grades. However, everyone knew each other, there was no crime, and there was an aura of peace and tranquility. Cruising along the dry, cracked road, there came a pickup truck. It was almost vintage, but in good condition, and the dark bl
Bar Bitch - Cashley (CCxAshley)"You're so adorable!"Ashley was getting hit on again by one of the bar sluts with tits the side of Texas. Her bleach blonde hair fell past her shoulders, her skimpy little pink tank top barely covered her chest and her shorts looked more like underwear. I usually wouldn't mind the fact that Ashley was getting attention if it weren't for the fact he blew me off every time some chick wanted to ride him like a horse. I sat on the other side of him casually sipping my drink."Am I?" he giggled drunkenly, pulling his mouth into one of his perfect little smiles.Shit I loved that smile, you could take a picture of it, hang it up on a wall and make the room look nice. The little goatee lit it up nicely too, the that bitch seemed to be enjoying it more then I ever would be able too. She giggled something, the leaned closer to him.Jealousy hit me like a rock. Ashley and I are wingmen for eachother, even though hes a natural chick magnet he always gets better. I'm worse, I'm just some over exi
