Hello and welcome to the latest edition of DevNews! In addition to our coverage of news and features found around dA, we're also bringing you two new features that we'll hope you enjoy: The Columnist Corner and DevNews Affiliate and Member Interviews! We also plan to introduce more features and contests over the next few months - the fun never stops here at DevNews.
And in case that isn't enough... We are also going to be featuring a FAQ every month that is usually neglected
Now sit back, relax, and prepare to be educated, entertained and enlightened!
In addition, as we ran out of time (due to technical difficulties on TimberClipse's end), we are including the monthly feature in the news article
Deviant Of The Month!
We at DevNews choose 1 deviant from the community. This deviant just has to be an outstanding deviant in the community, someone who cares
Freud and Broken Christmas TreesShe spilled the news on me before I even had the chance to react. And what would you even say to that, anyways? I'm sorry? Geez, that sucks? How's it feel to be an only child now? No. Never. You don't say that kind of stuff. You will never be able to find the words to say until it happens to you, too. God forbid.

Because I couldn't solve anything. Because I couldn't make it better. Because I was just as helpless as she was, and she hated me for it.
The feeling wasn't a red, or a black. It wasn't any colour I could really name, but it wasn't a gray either. It was a block of things, a puzzle, the outline of a crumpled soda can. Edges poking inside to spill the remains out through the tiny pinpricks, the fractures in the metal. I could go on and on into metaphors but she – I don't have words to describe her eye
The Final PunishmentNo thoughts could enter his mind, but if he could wish for something, it would be for nothing at all. There was no longer any desire in his heart, for at last it's flame had dissolved in streams of blood it had ignored. The monster inside him was gone, as too himself.
Their grip tighten around his wrist, and they pulled him forward deeper against the stone pavement. He could feel the glares of the imperial guard intense with hatred run across his browned bare back and almost singe his white speckled wings to pieces. Their powder white uniform were purelessly clean, the buttons reflecting the high noon sun also evilly.
Thrown onto the silver platform, guards surrounded his busily clicking chains around his feet, hands, and finally his neck. Ropes rubbed angrily against his feathers, and a few fell to the ground sparingly. He looked up into the face of his undiscovered equal.
People of White called him their steel hero; People of Red called him the brutal monster. His eyes were black as

I'm a native New Yorker, but I moved to Washington, DC, and got a BA in English and Creative Writing from The George Washington University in 2013. I now live and work full-time as an editor in Arlington, VA. In between fixing people's grammar, I write short stories.
