Book 4: The Friends of the A B C
Chapter 1: A Group That Very Nearly Became Historically Significant
Most of the Amis de l’A B C were students, with a few factory workers thrown in the mix for good measure. They had similar goals and values, an association by default that evolved into friendship. Here are their names. In a way, they belong to the history books: Enjolras, Combeferre, Jean Prouvaire, Feuilly, Courfeyrac, Bahorel, Lesgle or Laigle, Joly, and Grantaire.
Amongst these passionate hearts and eager spirits was a single cynic. How did he find himself in the midst of these devoted young men? By juxtaposition. This cynic was called Grantaire, although he usually simply signed his name R.
Grantaire was a man who prevented himself from believing in anything. Of all the students he was the one who had learned the most throughout their schooling in Paris. He knew that the best coffee was at the café Lemb
The Great Race by GuinevereToGwen is "a modern-day quest set in a girls' school: the 'dragon' is armed with a broom and the 'princess' isn't interested in the hero" (suggester's words).

Daily Lit Deviations
Aspiring novelist, composer-lyricist, sunriser, dreamer, and the biggest poetastrophe you'll ever meet.
I'm currently a student in Canada who dreams of spending the rest of her life writing novels and short stories on a houseboat. Fond of classic literature and musical theatre, I love snowflakes, hot air balloons, and typewriters, although I've never used one and doubt I would enjoy it.
I write short stories, poetry, songs, plays, screenplays, musicals, articles, anything and everything that can be written, I'm writing. My current writing projects include my novel, Columbia Uncharted, a collaborative novel with NGBookworm97, Sunriser, and a one-act musical I'm currently in the process of putting on called The Strangers on the Bus.
Nice Things People Have Said About Me
"Danielle’s gallery is packed full of intriguing and clever pieces to peruse, on her multi-faceted profile. Whether in sharing her novels brimming over with moving tales or reading a touching story or poem from a unique angle, she’s written something for everyone to enjoy."
by LadyLincoln, one of dA's biggest sweethearts
"What I love most about her writing is her character development and her observation/analysis of other human beings...including her honest evaluations of herself and her feelings.
Danielle is one of the most imaginative storytellers I know and, time after time, her writing touches me in some way, whether because I relate to it personally or am simply fascinated by it."

Feature: Digging for Gold... And no, I don't mean picking your nose.hopeburnsblue
I was reading through some of my favorites the other day, and I noticed that a lot of the literature I've collected hasn't received much recognition. So, the idea for this feature was born. Basically if I saw that a deviation had ten comments or less, I clicked on it and checked out the stats. If it had ten favorites or less, I thumbnailed it below. Some of you had several pieces like this, so in these cases I kept it to two per person so that things stay fair. You've seen me feature some of these since the summer, but others of them, you haven't. I hope everyone will enjoy the read and that this will garner more support for you all.
I split this section into subsections by genre and subject matter because, you know, I collect so many freakin' poems.
lifei turned twenty-one. i went out with friends, and said things i didn't mean. i enjoyed myself but not the drinks or the hangover or the situation i caused. but i'm twenty-one and it's time for thank yous to you lovelies for birthday wishes and i think i've gotten through all of them. i got two poetic letters to write yet, and a couple more feedback messages to get through, but in all i like you guys a lot so have some pretty things.toxic--sunrise

July-August WINNER and NEW PROMPTWe received quite a lot of entries for our last prompt! I am quite impressed with you guys. It was crazy to feel the anger of these letters. I feel like they acted as a release for you, and that makes me feel like I'm doing my job right. Because although they are addressed to other people, what are these letters but letters to ourselves?
This was a thought that the winning entry addressed:
Using vivid imagery and through frantic pieces of her thoughts, camileewrites weaves a short but powerful tale, leaving the reader wondering who this letter really was addressed to. For her emotional piece, camileewrites will receive a three-month Premium Membership!
