OK so I found this guy's writing and I think it has it ALL.

Darkness, violence, gore, no censorship. Of course it is fantasy, but by now you should all know I LOVE fantasy! ^_^

Anyways, so it's this: [link]

Share the best writings you have found that someone else wrote! That means NOT you.

Hehe maybe I will be lucky and someone will say my story. :la:

This thread is for the best stories only. So post the best!

There's more to .iterature than darkness, violence, and gore. That's not "all" there is to write about. Unless it serves the purpose of a story, most of violence and sex is contrived to gratify the visceral instincts of the lowest common denominators of people and not appeal to higher sensibilities. While there's nothing wrong to write about the most violent aspects of life, because they are a part of reality, they should not be the sole focus of any person. Humanity, philosophy, love, etc. are all just as, if not more, important.

As for the best thing I've read on dA, I would have to look back over the last six years of what I read and I can't think of it all. So I'll share my most recent favorite:
Furniture ShippingThe island was a beacon of light. Dark mists floated above the surrounding river, clouding  Asgard itself so the celestial city was unveiled only on close approach, a fair bride behind layers of veils. The sound of swirling currents and the painful thrashing of water against the shores emphasized its quiet majesty. Asgard itself wasn't visible from outside, guarded as it was by a high wall. Beyond it, the gods knew well the wonders of Idavoll, finest hall in the nine worlds, made of precious metals and set with jewels. The thirteen gods who judged the affairs of the nine worlds all sat in identical chairs. Odin's was only distinguished by its position upon a raised dais, whence he listened to the advice of the other high gods and eavesdropped on the other worlds. All this glory lay beyond the single egress that was Odin's mighty gate, which opened only for the worthy. The gods were now starting to wonder if Odin had overdone it while defining 'worthy.' Their collective feet wer

Despite this being simply smut and fanfiction for the most part it is quite ingenious within itself.

I like their slow character development and the way this person makes you attached to their characters, yearning for more as every chapter progresses. This caught my attention right away because of how well it is written.

Okay.
I didn't choose a fantasy writing because frankly I don't like the genre very much. But if you like it please let me know. I can always find other writers like this one to share.

Just read it, and I gotta say it was pretty good. Didn't hook me right off the bat, but I like the writing style. The twist wasn't obvious despite my efforts to think ahead, either. :)

I read this one before.
I quite like it. Slow to start off with but it had me caught by the third paragraph.
This is obviously a writer that knows how to grab your attention and hold it.
Good choice~

She really is.
I am interested in what she has to bring in the future.
Being an amateur writer myself I feel I can learn from different writers like ~witwitch to better improve my own.
She is a good example of someone I would like to learn from just by reading what she puts up.

BlackFlameVampire Featured By Owner Dec 7, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer
Exactly. I feel the same way.
I'm just a bit nit picky about writing style, grammar and some things like that. Though I will give anything a try once, and if I don't like it then I don't. Doesn't mean I didn't think that particular writer was a bad writer I just didn't like the story they were telling.

I feel every writer should be given a chance. I personally wouldn't mind a critique or two on mine. LOL
All part of the learning experience y'know?

Just because she's not your cup of tea doesn't mean she's not someone else's.
Please get off it.
Just because someone has a different opinion than you doesn't mean it's the end of the world. People are obviously going to disagree with you, it's pointless to fight it when a battle of opinion is one everyone is sure to lose.

Your dim witted replies make it obvious that you are a small minded individual who refuses to listen to what others have to say unless it is positive and directed towards you.
Please grow up and learn that not everything is about you, not everyone is going to share your opinions and definitively not your hatred of someone else.
Holding a grudge against someone who stated their opinion of something is childish. If you don't like it that's fine, don't bitch about it and make it like sharing an opinion is a bad thing. That is just rude and immature.

Well my story has more favorites. Her story has ZERO favorites so I guess that just proves I am right and you are wrong.

Just because your story has more favorites doesn't mean it's necessarily better. It is imbecilic to claim something is better simply because of popularity. That's like saying Nickelback is better than Beach House simply because it gets more radio play or that Here Comes Honey Boo Boo is better than Breaking Bad.

It doesn't prove right or wrong. It only means more have seen your story and put it in their favorites...ON DEVIANTART. For all we know, witwitch could have more favorites than you, they're just bookmarked in different places.

You keep throwing around the word "fact" but I really doubt you know what it means since you're just stating your opinion over and over again.
