December's Theme Winners:
Wolf Gift - Mahlattu by Maxrunn The Wolf's Gift - Natsume's Full Moon Christmas by Wolvenmage Homecoming (Wolf's Gift Story Challenge)With every mile put between her and the city, Wind felt more and more peaceful.  If her stress were a wool sweater, it was as if a thread was stuck somewhere in the city and the further she traveled, the more the sweater came undone.  Of course cities had their benefits, but the bustling holiday season could be taxing for most people, let alone a werewolf.  Needless to say, a break from the commotion was definitely needed.
 
Dressed snuggly, Wind stared out the passenger’s side window and idly sipped a can of Dr. Pepper.  Pure snow blanketed the hills, trees, and mountains for miles in all directions as she smiled to herself.  She shared her warm grin with her husband, Dart, who gently guided the car around a short bend in the road.  He returned the smile before returning his eyes to the road.  Without a doubt, there was no place they’d rather be than wherever they were together; except for their destination, of course.

"The Romantic"

Werewolves tend to be a very private creature, seldom exposing critical behaviors to their survival. Courtship has been a long standing unknown in this matter, so show us some of the ways a werewolf might attract another! Happy Valentines day!

Hello! I am not angry or insulted in any way about this, but I wish to know what so I can fix it; was my deviation Losing Control declined because I forgot to add Mature Filter on it, or was it something else in the rules I missed?

First, I'd like to thank you for your preface there.  It seems increasingly like we only hear from people who are angry.

Second, I didn't decline it, but I'd speculate the reason would be the background.  It looks like just rough grey pencil lines, or scratches.  I don't see anything about the foreground that would disqualify it.

Third, I should add all decisions are subjective.  Hope this helps!

Ah, the background... Yeah, I never intended it to be something specific. Thank you!

If this groups is going to suddenly and continuously decline my works despite them having been accepted before; when they more than meet all of the specified requirements and themes then you can just go ahead remove my past submitted works as well as my membership. I have far to much work to accomplish to have my time wasted in such an appalling manner.

If you want to claim differing standards among voting moderators then find some actual standards for your moderators to adhere to. Otherwise you need to remove the "ALL TYPES of werewolves and anthropomorphic wolves are welcome here!" line from the groups welcome post, because with the way its currently being run it's barefaced lie.

Paladin, I think we had discussed before that we certainly enjoy your work. But as the other moderators have stated, the works recently submitted did not fit our criteria for what goes into the gallery here, some of which included matters strictly against the rules.

There is absolutely no reason for this brashness against us. We are not insulting your work by not letting it into this gallery, as I've stated, we enjoy your work, these two pieces simply don't fit here. I believe this group has been very supportive of your work, and attacking us so publicly rather than professionally discussing the matter in private messaging is extremely inappropriate and uncalled for.

We respect both you and your artwork and are surprised by your bluntness and abrasiveness here. Clearly you feel we're against you when that is anything but the actual case. Sometimes a particular artist will submit artwork that we feel meets our standards. Sometimes that same artist will later submit artwork that doesn't. We don't feel required to accept ALL of an artist's works just because we've accepted some of their artwork in the past. 

Lastly, while we DO accept any and all types of werewolves we ALSO have very strict standards of art-quality that we adhere to.

In the past month, in this group and others, there suddenly seems to be an expectation submissions absolutely have to be accepted just because they meet minimum requirements.  I do not understand this at all.

I mean, sure, its nice to get your art/stories into groups so I can understand trepidation with getting rejected from time to time. But when my stories are justly rejected because I didn't follow the rules or only barely passed editing? No problem. Even if the rules ARE followed and the artwork IS okay, then how or why is a group required to accept it? People act like since they drew or wrote something that everyone has to suddenly like and accept it, and its maddening.
