There's a ReasonEveryone knows me.There's a Reason by ~MatildaGrimsworth
I’m the monster living in these woods,
Clipping the trees with my wings,
Snatching prey with my talons,
Dulling the rocks to sharpen my claws.
You don’t want to meet me,
And that’s just fine.
I don’t want to meet you either.
There’s a reason why I stay here,
In the trees, alone.
I am strange,
And I am deformed,
And those are crimes the world never forgives.
Oh, you’ll say it’s not out of bitterness,
But I know the truth.
I’m one of the lovely bad ones,
And though you say it’s all out of curiosity, or security,
I know why you want to lock me away.
Abnormalities must be classified, burned, punished,
For we are crimes against nature.
And I just want you to know, I’m okay with that.
I don’t want to be friends; I don’t want to be one of you.
Because I love how I am.
I’m anything but human,
And I rejoice.
In all honesty I pity you.
You’ve been trained to hate my kind.
You have been blinded
|How to Join|
If you want to join the group, it couldn't be any easier: just click on the 'join our group' button in the top bar. Then just wait for the 'accepted' notification, and you're all set!
We accept submissions of all artwork relating to cryptozoology. Have you done a portrait of Big Foot? A landscape featuring Nessie? A still-life with a Mokele-Mbembe egg? Go ahead and add it to the gallery!
Remember, though, art should have something to do with cryptids. Fantasy animals (like unicorns and griffins), original characters (creatures you made up yourself), and more sci-fi creatures (like aliens and zombies) aren't generally considered to be cryptids (note: we make exception for Slenderman--although he was made up as a faux cryptid, he's become widely embraced enough to merit inclusion in our gallery). Here's a list of cryptids, so you can get an idea: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_…
Mature content submissions will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis, and may be accepted or rejected at our discretion. Please keep in mind that this is an all-ages group.
If you find something cryptid-related while browsing dA that you think we'd like, then send it to us as a favorite suggestion!
