Rules. . .

:bulletred: All submissions are judged on all aspects of photo technicality - composition, lighting, noise/sharpness, originality, DoF, where the eye is led to in the photo, etc etc. Therefore, there are high standards in this group, and photos are frequently declined. If this bothers you, then this may not be a group for you.

:bulletred: As the group name suggests, we accept photographs ONLY! Heavy manipulated photos must go into the designated folder for those works. No compilations of many images into one are accepted.

:bulletred: One submission per month! You must be a member to submit.

:bulletred: Submissions into the wrong category are instant declines, no matter how good the submission may be - please take a moment to carefully submit it to the correct gallery folder. We also don't accept submissions to the featured folder.

:bulletred: No nudity, no violence/macabre/horror - implied or otherwise - no exceptions.

1st place winner:


Tricky Treat The moon, full and gleaming, blesses Halloween night
With her kiss of light, shining orb complimenting
The eve of troublesome tricks and tantalizing treats.
 
Under the lunar Goddess, a tricky treat is in the making,
The maker cackling loudly as her bubbling brew is birthed
With a plethora of ingredients gathered all throughout the night.
 
Cool air, gentle wind and hooting owls are a terrific triad
For the salivating sorceress who offers the results of her scavenging
Into the concoction that changes colors as it approaches completion.
 
Pebbles that taste like rainbows, brown wafers that easily break,
Multicolored worms of stretchy composition, red fish straight from Sweden,
And orbs whose center can only be reached with an immeasurable number of licks.
 
Beans of jelly, corn that's been candied, bars named after Earth's galaxy,
Almonds said to bring joy, tiny stones that pop in one's mouth, spheres which can break a jaw;
All of gathered from the surrounding area f

Sweet DreamsSweet Dreams
Oh sweet dreams, gone to sour skittles!    
Slumber ate in wakes & gurgles.    
A witch, a witch cackling fiddles:  
Sugary spell-craft  cauldron burbles.  
Sour dreams skittle, candy riddles.  
Slumber ate in wakes & gurgles.
Belly a monster, teeth gnashing  
Sugary spell-craft. Cauldron burbles.
Gollum riddles inside churning
Snatching counts of sheep while he chortles.
Belly a monster, teeth gnashing
Sour dreams skittle, candy riddles.
Gollum riddles inside churning.
Oh sweet dreams, gone to sour skittles!
Sleep devoured by trick-or-treating.

Black Cat


Winner: Halloween theme (cat 2) 26 10 2016 by An9reyART   by :iconan9reyart:  An9reyART


Special mention to
Friday QuotaShe starts her Friday by taking a red marker
And making an "X" in the thirteenth box
Underneath the orange and black "OCTOBER".
 
She is nervous but hopeful as she brushes her hair.
When the mirror slips from her hands and becomes shards,
She knocks on her dresser and takes a deep breath.
 
Because it's raining, she gets her umbrella and opens it before
Opening the door and stepping into the storm.
She walks on the puddle-filled sidewalk, fingers crossed
And mind cursing her own forgetfulness.
 
Heading down the soggy city street, she looks at her watch,
Discovering she is late for work.
Desperate to be on time, she runs underneath a ladder,
Stopping shortly afterwards to pluck a penny from the pavement.
 
She is nearly there, but her progress halts when she trips,
And once she is back on her feet she takes just one step
Before tripping again, and the misfortune soon occurs a third time.
She winds up being fifteen minutes late, for she stops
At the local trinket sho

Evil Spirits in Love, 3D-Art by shibashake     by :iconshibashake:    shibashake


Special mentions:
OmittedOmitted
I've exorcised demons.
I've dealt with ghosts.
I know the world
We fear the most.
I've tasted blood,
I've engaged in ritual,
I've danced in the moonlight,
Till it became habitual.
With all the beauty of all the mystical
We are all dreams,
I think you will find
Save our cognizance's testament,
We are but mud given spirit, shape, and mind.
I've lived curses,
I've become gangrel.
I've come back out of it,
Like a bat out of hell.
I've seen the face of the void,
That great eye.
Twisting the manifestations
Of the great lie.
I've brought life out of earth,
I've made it rain,
I've made fire burst,
And I've called on air,
And held the reigns.
But the greatest rite,
I omit from you-
For man cannot grasp it.
And with that, I bid you adieu.

Prettyflour’s A Monster Calls- A Prose Contest




1st place:


Monster’s Mind            
Monster's MindStiff.
That’s all my body was.
Stiff and sore.
Cracking my eyes open, I started to assess any injuries that those brats gave me in the brawl. My findings, or, more so, lack of findings, make me smirk in a sadistic glee.
There wasn’t a scratch on me. Looks like those brats were bluffing.
I’ll have to punish them for even making me think that they were a threat though. No one tricks me and lives to tell the tale.
Ooohhh, this was going to be fun.
Wonder which one I’m going to play with first.
The youngest? It would certainly be fun to see those big doe eyes filled with fear when I crush her precious ‘memory marbles’ and then her.
The middle child? I know that she feels her sisters are her strength, so why not get her all alone and let the feeling of helplessness take over.
The oldest? Leave her in a dark holding cell for a week with nothing to keep her alive but moldy, rotten food, and slowly watch that big brain unravel due to terror.
Or, why not g

Dunsbury Prior Church    
Dunsbury Prior ChurchThe Dunsbury Prior Church
Bats in the belfry, rats in the walls and something more
Part One. History and Discovery
It is a topic of domestic, localized history that old things get replaced by new and, with passage of time, they get forgotten; at least, until someone or another happens across them and discovers them. So it had happened that Dunsbury Prior, which was both near in proximity and close in constituency and manner to such places as Arkham,Massachusetts1, had built a new church for the residents and the old church, which by then had aged eighty five years, went on ignored and forgotten.  That was, until someone had wandered by it and discovered it.
Even as the living mass of flesh and tissue slowly ruminates in the grave and finally leaves behind the structure-bones-in its wake, so the edifice of the old church had slowly crumbled and left behind the few remnants of the structure. Left ignored and forgotten by men so long, the rema

Make Then Stop      
Make Them StopWWP for Fanfiction-friends: Horror.
Word count: 296.
World: Original.
“Make them stop.  Make them stop.  Make them stop.”  Voices don’t stop.  No, no, no.  Don’t stop.  Don’t stop.  Have to.  Have to.  No, no, no.
The Voices whispered.  Whisper, whisper, whisper.  Bugs crawled across the floor.  Making noise.  So much noise.  Ears hurt.  Yes, yes, yes.  Ears hurt.  Ears hurt.  Make it stop.  Make it stop.
Light from the Bugs.  Shining bright.  Too bright, too bright.  Voices don’t like the light.  Don’t like it.  Don’t like it.  Sorry.  Sorry.  Sorry.  So sorry!  Just stop.  Stop!
Sound.  Sound.  More sound from Bugs.  Light from Bugs.  Getting closer.  Too close.  Too close.  Too close.  Voices don’t like Bugs.  Don’t like them at all
