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.

Drive Active: February 1 - 29Our first drive is officially active!Drive Active: February 1 - 29 by LiliWrites
We're currently hosting a drive from February 1 to February 29. Prizes will be distributed in March. Anyone who has a DA account is able to participate and eligible to win a prize, this includes Community Volunteers and Staff! We all love great artwork, and we can all suggest great artwork to be featured. This project is all about spreading the warm-tingly feeling when we see great stuff shoved at a spotlight.
What is a drive?
A drive is a period of time, usually one calendar month, in which DDSuggestionDrive is actively encouraging everyone on DeviantArt to suggest pieces of art and writing to the Community Volunteers for a Daily Deviation feature.
You can learn more about the group in our Welcome journal and more about the Drives in our
Challenge Fun #88 Winner! We posted Challenge Fun #88 in the Deviants Forum on Monday the 4th. The challenge was to use 1-3 pieces from DA's Photography gallery to inspire a short poem.Challenge Fun #88 Winner! by LiliWrites
A ton of people responded with great works! It was so difficult to choose just one winner (and if it were up to me it would be a tie ) but there can be only one!
Dreams lurking in alleyways
We're made of moth and bone
and colors blending into morning sleet.
We are a dusting of tomorrow,
Melting under passing feet.
Plucked off a drying carapace,
we are your powdered wings,
which go the way of all such
used and mis-used things.
There were several other great pieces produced by this challenge. Here are the honorable mentions!
Awesome, Literally! Vol 2: Glory-Be-ProjectWhat is this thing?Awesome, Literally! Vol 2: Glory-Be-Project by LiliWrites
There are tons of groups and projects in the literature community on DeviantArt, and they are all awesome, literally! (Get it? ) This article series is aimed at spotlighting groups or projects that have been part of the foundation of the literature community. They create content, promote writing, engage in conversation, and generally get people excited about literature. This is our way of saying thanks and getting new people involved!
How does it work?
The second Friday of every month, a new blog will be posted to CRLiterature that highlights a different group or project in the community. The blog will have a link to a forum discussion where you can ask the group creators directly about what motivated them to get started with the project, how it works, their favorite moments, and really anything else under the sun. The forum thread will be open for about a week. When it is closed, the bl

The Specific AbstractI walked home alone from a halloween rager at 3am all bundled in black and now I sit on my couch with a best friend sleeping under my covers. Cancer. There, I said it. Tonight I finally allow the word to roll off my mind's tongue over and over again because I've avoided it for too long. Cancer cancer cancer cancer cancer. I might as well start saying it because I can't stop hearing it at school, work, in films, and in books. Cancer is a stalker I can't get a restraining order on. Cancer is a feeling I can't shake. Cancer is a shadow looming that I'll never quite understand because I don't have it.The Specific Abstract by pulbern
My dad got prostate cancer when the leaves began to fall in 09'. Before he 'got' cancer his mom died from being old. She went quietly and quickly. She never stopped smiling and she tended this ginormous garden days before her heart attack. She kicked her bucket over at 94. My Opa on my moms' side died a few months after my grandma. It was sad but only because he didn't go so easily. I only kn
BleedIt was during that night, after dinner,Bleed by Jade-Pandora
And tight on bottles of wine, your words
Hung sublime like crystalline birds.
And I, dazed from the sound as they passed,
Could only look at you through my glass
Held up to my gaze, and filled with wine,
And saw, with the passing of time how the
Candle's light imbued everything in a
red hue as I stared at you, intoxicated,
Till through my fingers, slipped, its descent
Lingered, the beat of my heart, hindered,
Shattered its perfection across the floor,
Just as my heart tore and came apart in a
Flood of wine: red as blood, painful to see,
As if my eyes had burst, but which would I
Notice first: the innocuous stench of sick,
Or the shards of glass' trick of the light.
Still, I bleed in your presence, my tears
Are bleeding; don't staunch the flow,
You've tipped the waiter, now
I beg you, please, just go.

for, this is my letter to the world,
that never wrote to me...
With quick wit, and impish, did easily
dissolve into gaiety amid academy peers,
from whence would deliver me into life's
cadence so passionately, this brown wren.
Are you too deeply occupied to say if
my verse is alive?
The mind is so near itself it cannot
see distinctly, and I have none to ask.
That you will not betray me it is needless
to ask, since honor is its own pawn.
Undressed thoughts that joggle the mind.
The balm and smile to rise even higher
than true, (and) to run the course through
life's preceptor, or dare hope to be,
this young spirit of a woman, yet
unclaimed, by a nation of civil war.
And yet, the long wait to obsess, this
daughter in white, unrecognized, till comes
