DD Suggestion by spring-sky
IceXDragon said: "This explains the DD suggestion process very well. I love the animation of it, plus the mob of deviants flooding it with faves and comments is very realistic of what really happens when something gets a DD."
Mirz123 said: " I adore emoticons that can convey somewhat abstract concepts. Suggesting a DD seems like something that would not be easily done in an emoticon, but spring-sky manages beautifully. The story is easily understandable and the pixelling very cute. A worthy recipient of a DD itself! "
I have to say that I also adore that a pigeon is used to deliver the DD suggestion. ( Suggested by IceXDragon and Featured by Krissi001 )
Hello everybody ,Assalam Alaikum !
How are you dear friends ?? I missed you all so much .
The first thing I want to say , is that this journal will be a really LOOOOOOOOOONG one . So please don't be shocked by the huge wall of text in front of you .
I don't usually ask that ,but please , read it till the end . I've got many things to tell you and it really matters to me that you all know them .
So please ,have a seat ,and let's start .
I'm so happy to be able to come back to dA again ..and I was thrilled to see all those notes and comments from friends whom missed me and were worried about me ,as well as a big number of sweet birthday wishes that I missed .
So ..Are you ready to know where I was ,for the past few months ?
Silly question …Of course you are .
Can't believe it ?!! No problem…I can barely believe it myself .
His name is Muhannad (which means a sword in Arabic) and he's 12 years older than me
OK … Are you ready for another shocking news ??
Nah ,I'm not pregnant ! silly you ! .
It's just that , although we are engaged , but we haven't met each others yet !!
(Ah ..God . I'd pay anything to see your puzzled faces right now )
His family lives in Iraq ,but he lives in Germany . So we only talked online and get to know each other before we get officially engaged .
This journal will be long enough ,so I'll save the details for a later journal ,God willing .
I just wanted you to know that ,during the past four months ,I was studying German to pass a certain exam which is essential for me to be able to travel to Germany .
And being a dA addict ,I couldn't come to dA because I know that I'll spend my time commenting and faving when I'm supposed to study .
Can you believe that I didn't draw anything considerable during the past 4 months ?!!! just some sketches to help me memorize German words ! u_u"
Though I satisfied my artistic needs with some culinary art . I made some nice, well-decorated cakes when I was off dA
So now I can speak 3 languages !! , ummm….more like 2 and a half .
Ummm…That doesn't sound right either .
Back to the point , We now chat a couple of times per week until he finishes his papers and be able to come back here ,God willing ,for us to get married . Then I'll have to leave Iraq and go live with him in Germany . It's so heart-breaking thought that I try my best to keep in the back of my mind for as long as possible . I just don't want to think about it now . *sigh*
Anyway , I passed the test ,Thank God ,So now I'm able to come back here again …to my beloved artistic world .
So ..What I really need from you now ,dear friends , is to help me catch up with everything that happened while I was gone ..
Did any one of you have a major life event ? You got engaged ,married ,pregnant or had a child ?
…Or on the other side ,God forbids , got sick or lost someone close ?
Did you change your profile name ? .. If so, please tell me your old and new one ..so I can update my brain's data
And did you get any Daily Deviation that I missed to see ??
Is there any new changes in dA ? new emoticons added or removed from the legend ? Any major changes to the appearance or html codes used in the site ?
I miss you so much guys ,and it saddens me to feel like a bit lost in a place I used to consider home . Please ,help me re-fit in and get back on the dA board again .
And … If you have some free time ,show me one of your deviations that you posted in the last 4 months , and another one from your faves . Just keep in mind no nudity or homosexual ,violent themes ,please .
I'm looking forward to see what you've made .
Ramadan Mubarak for all the Muslims here too .
Salam ,and Be Safe .
