dAseniors is the official home for all Senior Members here on DeviantArt. There are various things we do to keep this nursing home alive and kicking; features on our blog, news articles that promote a multitude of happenings, projects that revolve around more than just creating artwork, and hilariously engaging chat events.
Senior Members are users of DeviantArt distinguishable by their medal symbols () behind their user names.
Only Senior Members may join this group as a member, but you are, of course, free to watch this group to stay tuned for our latest updates. In fact, we encourage it!
We hope to launch projects and contests in the near vicinity. These will be open to all members of deviantART, but (co-)hosted by senior members.

What Do You Want From Me?Getting ReacquaintedWhat Do You Want From Me? by tiganusi
Ten days into this "CV" thing and I've not broken anything beyond repair. Yet. I've mostly been setting DDs, plotting new article series, mistakenly calling tanikel "that tanuki lady", and linking the CR team pointless morale-boosting things like the court docket of I AM THE BEAST SIX SIX SIX OF THE LORD OF HOSTS IN EDMOND FRANK MACGILLIVRAY JR NOW. I AM THE BEAST SIX SIX SIX OF THE LORD OF HOSTS IEFMJN. I AM THE BEAST SIX SIX SIX OF THE LORD OF HOSTS. I AM THE BEAST SIX SIX SIX OTLOHIEFMJN. I AM THE BEAST SSSOTLOHIEFMJN. I AM THE BEAST SIX SIX SIX. BEAST SIX SIX SIX LORD, Plaintiff, v. MICHIGAN STATE POLICE; CITY POLICE OF LANSING; STATE OF MICHIGAN; INGHAM COUNTY 54A DISTRICT COURT; and INGHAM COUNTY JAIL, Defendants. But it's been ten days and that means it's about time for me to start breaking things beyond repair. I do have a r
Senior Mentors Quarterly Update: June 2015Welcome!Senior Mentors Quarterly Update: June 2015 by tiganusi
As part of a movement for increased transparency and general awesomeness at SMP we've decided to create a quarterly newsletter to let all of our mentors, pupils, members and watchers know what's going on behind the scenes! We know that sometimes there isn't much going on at the front end of the group so hopefully these updates will remind you that we're here and keeping busy even if you're not seeing journals or deviations go through the group every day. And my, do we have a lot to cover in this installment!
Three months ago we lost our leader, LostKitten, to the pressures of real life. Fortunately the wonderful JenFruzz stepped up to become our Southie Queen and decided to shake things up a little... and here we are today, with nearly 50 mentor/pupil matches in the last three months and more mentors than ever before!
After the change in leadership the group decided to change the whole hierarchy a little
The Tearoom Debates II: Fanfiction v. PublishingWelcome back to the second installment of CRLiterature's new article series, The Tearoom Debates! We've shamelessly ripped off Mrs-Durden and CRPhotography, who currently run a bi-weekly series of opportunities for group readers to debate both sides of questions like "film or digital?" and then, in the next article, spotlight the input of the previous week's commenters.The Tearoom Debates II: Fanfiction v. Publishing by tiganusi
Last week we asked "Where should you draw the line between inspiration and infringement?" and we got some brilliant feedback from you all. Some highlights included:
Have you taken an idea (or ideas from disparate sources, which is a favourite exercise of mine) and created something genuinely new from them? That is clearly distinct? If so I've always felt that's okay. Such a piece can run the continuum anywhere from good fanfic (which by i

I don't think I got to make a formal announcement welcoming them to the hellmouth yet, but about a week and a half ago two great friends of mine - one old, one new - got bumped up to Literature Community Volunteers. If you don't watch them yet check out TheMaidenInBlack and LiliWrites, who join IrrevocableFate and SingingFlames as the lordly assfaces of CRLiterature who have to deal with me and Becca and Emily (mainly Emily let's be real) all the time when we get harebrained schemes or get in knife fights. And they came on at a great time because we have all sorts of crazy shit in the works at CRLit right now!
Not quite this crazy.
Firstly, we're in the process of splintering Book Club into its own group - so news on that should be coming soon, hopefully! We also have Flash Fiction Competition - First Round! in progress courtesy of ObsydianDreamer an

through an hourglass of myself,
like romanticizing how Livingstone died
when it was actually long, and terrible.
This never changes, as I will never change,
even as the costly waste challenges
its chaste casting, and the extoller of
your emphatic approximations as my lover,
long after my fate has pulled yours asunder.

when her necklace
pokes her sharply,
she says ow-ow-ow-ouch
and removes the necklace,
never waking up,
her sleepy words
not making one kind
of any kind of sense.
But I am awake.
