4/26 EDIT: The submissions we've received this month are all wonderful! I can already tell picking entries for prizes is going to be fun!

However, I've been rather busy recently, and haven't had much time to send out reminders and spread the word. This is also a time when a lot of you are having big projects in school, preparing for exams, etc. I feel it hasn't really been fair to those who may have missed my initial announcement or have had a lot going on.

In order to accommodate everyone who would like to enter, I'll be extending the deadline for entries to MAY 12, 2015 at 12:00 EST! I will still be counting these entries for the donation amount, as well as considering them for prizes. I'll also be posting reminders on my main account and in this journal.

Happy April Fool's Day!

Amidst the sea of joke entries flooding your inbox today, I'd like to announce something I've been planning for a long time :D

Last month, BrickercupMasterX3 hosted an Akubloss-themed month, and I want to thank everyone who participated; all of your entries were fantastic! 

We haven't hosted a contest in five years, and we've since amassed a total 216 members and 280 watchers. 

Over the years, this community has grown and changed for the better. I've always wanted to do something special for the group, and all the wonderful people who contribute their art, writing, edits, videos, and more to "keep this ship afloat" so to speak. 

I have chosen April to host the group's Akubloss Month a few reasons:
  1. Map of the Problematique, an Akubloss tale of epic proportions. The first story takes place during April. Several other important events throughout the fic happen during this month.
  2. Hanami, the traditional Japanese festival of sakura viewing, usually peaks in April. 
  3. April's birth month flower is the Sweet pea. So what?
  4. April is the United States' National Sexual Assault Awareness Month. 

This ship is important to me because of the amazing people I've met through it. However, for a long time it served as my self-therapy as well. It helped me work through trauma and other issues stemming from my experiences as a child. Today I'm a functional adult, but I couldn't have made it without the support and release drawing and sharing Akubloss has given me. I want to continue using the pairing to potentially help other survivors. That's where you can help!

For every submission to the club this month, including my own, I will donate $1 to RAINN, the Rape, Abuse, and Incest National Network. RAINN is the largest charity organization in the United States dedicated to sexual assault prevention and awareness. They operate the National Sexual Assault Hotline at 1-800-656-HOPE and online.rainn.org/ , work to reform laws and policies to convict rapists and support victims, provide statistics and resources on sexual violence, and run entirely on donations. 

The more you submit, the more I will donate! You can also donate by clicking here! 

In addition, your submissions will be entered into a contest! From these I will select the following:
  • Six entries; their creators will receive 50:points: and $10CC from me.
  • Three entries; their creators will receive 100:points: and $20CC from me.
  • One entry's creator will receive 200:points:, $50CC from me, and a physical copy of Super Secret Crisis War Vol.1 OR $20CC from me.
CC is Commission Credit. What this means is that you will be listed on my profile with the amount of credit you have, and you may use that to pay for art from me until it's all used up. Here are my commission prices!

If you would like to contribute prizes, please send a note to teacupballerina

I will choose the winners based on the following:
  • Focus on Aku and Blossom.
  • Effort spent. Coloring your work, submitting more than one entry, and/or proofreading fanfiction are not required but those things can help increase your chances of being selected for prizes.
Rules and Guidelines:
  • Other characters including OCs are allowed, but Aku and Blossom MUST be present in the work or unambiguously connected (Devil Blossom, Reformed Aku, Queen Blossom, Akio and Berserk etc). Fankids are allowed as long as their parents are included in the entry too.
  • Do not break any of Deviantart's policies regarding sexually explicit material. 
  • Any portrayal of the ship is accepted. Enemyshipping, BFFship, Alternate Universe, etc. are all valid. Fluff, angst, action, humor, drama; it's all good.
  • All mediums are accepted.
  • You do not have to be a member of the group to enter or submit work but it would be super cool if you were

If you're not sure where to start or have never done anything Akubloss related before, here are a few things that may help inspire you:

PPG/SJ Timeline Theory (headcanon)

The deadline for submissions counting towards the RAINN donation and contest prizes is THURSDAY APRIL 30th 2015, 11:59 P.M. EST. Prize winners, submission features, and donation screenshots will be posted within the following week. 

If you have any questions or suggestions, please comment below or send me a note.

Thank you for reading! Good luck!

Hi there, FOOLS!



WELCOME to the official group for the Aku/Blossom ship! Here we gather everything related to the couple. Because of the nature of the pairing, members tend to have plenty of different ideas and tastes concerning it...basically, the keyword here is variety! For some it's an ultimate OTP, for others it's silly crack; we all have our own reasons for uniting here in this group.

Join/Affiliation requests are automatically approved.

RULES:

1. Submit ONLY works with both Aku and Blossom involved. Exceptions are single-character images of Aku or Blossom, and fan-children. Each exception has its own folder.

Submissions must be approved before entering the group. If your submission breaks this, it will not be approved.

2. Do not harass other members. Do not flame other members. Violation of this rule will result in a ban/block.

3. We welcome different opinions and are open for intelligent debate. However, there is a difference between discussion and fighting. If you're trolling or looking to stir shit up, you'll be ignored. If your comments are entertaining we might humor you.

4. All work is accepted to the gallery as long as it follows rule #1.

5. We accept any interpretation of the pairing--including non-romantic versions. If you depict a hate-filled battle between Aku and Blossom, we want it. We love them even if they don't love each other...the group isn't JUST for supporting them as partners but as friends and/or enemies as well.

This group is active :bulletgreen:

Ah yes hello again, I've been meaning to ask you something.

Are crossovers allowed?

Because I'm working on Queen Blossom meeting Slender Lisa. (Unfortunately I didn't have enough room for Aku and Slender Man)

So can it added to this club?
