Helper ApplicationsGreetings My Candy Love Fans!
I am here today because I would love to have a couple of helpers with this group. So, if you think you can devote some spare time to sifting through art read on. If the following fits you then just say so in a comment and I will choose 2 people to help out as mods of the group.
-Know English like it is your primary language.
-Have time to spare.
--For sorting images
--For removing images
-Love the game
-Want to help thr group rather than just watch it.
-Would like to occasionally write journals about what's going on with the game ^_^
About MCL Submissions ... an FYIUpdate: We will also be removing all screen caps or images that are just from the game, as it's not all that fair to ChiNoMiko's to have her art spread around by anyone but herself. Compilations of images will still be allowed as long as you are making something NEW in the image.
As much as I love looking at and reading artworks by you all. I'm going to say this. My Candy Love is the english version of the wonderful game by ChiNoMiko. Therefore, all further submissions to this group will be in english. If a submission is not written in english in both title and description then the submission will no be accepted to this group. I will also be sifting through old submissions and removing all submissions from the folders that are not in english.
The following are the other language groups (per comment request):

September AnnouncementsIt's September 24th and I bring to you great news!
This month released Episode 19 on the 23, yesterday ... I can't wait to finish episode 18 so I can try out episode 19. How bout you guys?
They have unfortunatly gone into disarray again. I've been busy with life stuff and so I am looking for someone to help me sort out the boys folder to their individual image folders and make sure that the folders are only getting images that fit with the category information listed on the side of the gallery page.
I, MeganEliMoon am still offering a 50% off of any commission from my commissions list to any member of this group. There are no others that I am aware of at this time.
yes I said applications. This is for if you wish to become a helper in this group. Please fill in the information and post it here as a comment. Thanks
Why you want to help:

August AnnouncmentsSo I've decided to try to do monthly updates for everyone, of course this means I'll need information or mini article from you guys to post every month. If you have anything that you would like posted for the next month i.e. having a special on MCL art commissions or notice anything of importance be sure to NOTE me about it.
This month as many of you may have seen Episode 18 was put up on August 8th. I have yet to play this episode as I'm replaying some other in an attempt to get more photos.
The Clothing gallery has been updated as far as episode 9, plus the Halloween specials so far. I would very much like to encourage you to create your own clothing styles that you would love to see in the game. I'm not saying I can get them in for you but we'd all love to see more designs I'm sure.

All Cleaned Up!Announcement
So I come back over to this page after two weeks away to find tons of images some how auto-approved to the featured folder and a huge mass of requests for images to be added as well as memberships. And I've just noticed that I am now the sole founder for the group. Apologies to all who requested an invite but didn't get accepted due to the request expiring before I returned. It took my a while to get everything where it belongs again and I have turned off the random auto-approved imagery.
I would also like to take this time to remind everyone that explicit materials are not allowed in the group. If your image has a boy with his shirt of that is fine as long as it is not overly sexual in nature. I am also adding a gender-bend category since so many member seem to enjoy changing the gender of characters or dressing them in drag. This new gender-bend category will be open to both candies as well as npc to be entered if they are
LeavingHey guys, Celeste here. I'm sorry to say that I'll be leaving the group. My family and I are moving, my sister to Pennsylvania and my mother and I to Williamsburg. It's going to take a lot of work from all three of us, plus some help from other family members. it's been fun talking with you all and seeing all your art. I hope everything stays good and I trust Eli. I'm sorry to be so abrupt about this, but I really did have fun while it lasted. Love you guys.
Spring ContestHey guys! Celeste here with an important, as well as fun, announcement!
As you all know, Spring has finally arrived, and we're going to welcome it with

Rules and Regulations... againTo our dear members,
I, that's :iconCelestial-Winters:, would like to remind you all of some of our strict rules.
Now, I'm not doing this to be a stick-in-the-mud, I'm just doing this for the mental
health of our members. We don't want them having to pay the bill for a Shrink!
The rule that people seem to keep forgetting is that we ask for relatively "non-mature"
artwork to be entered, as it were. That is to say, we won't, and I mean WON'T
accept things that are sexually themed, yaoi/yuri related(W accept yaoi/yuri, just not sexual themed), or ideologically sensitive (No particularly
horrible curse words, no racism, etc.). We do however accept artwork pairing your characters
with the MCL boys, so so as it's innocent. We also ask that you are kind to others members, there
fore meaning you will not make fun of their characters.
I apologize if we've turned away your artwork, but that would mean that it breaks a rule and can not

Activity of the week
I have been thinking of this for a little while now and noticed that a lot of groups have activities or competitions that they host. For the first Activity I would
Will you be my friend?The funny thing about people knowing you, is that many people want to be your friend.
"Will you be my friend?" is one those questions I get the most.
It's also one the questions I have to answer with a negative answer the most, because I don't like lying to people.
Like I've told in some of my earlier journals, my life didn't overflow with friendship nor popularity when I was younger. It was quite the contrary. I wasn't anything near popular, to the point that most people didn't even want to have anything to do with me. As the kid that got bullied, the few that dared to get close to me, more or less put their social status in the group at stake by even talking to me. And as a result, I guess I valued their friendship a lot. After all; I knew what they risked.
Coming from that sort of situation, friendship has always been a very important but at the same time mysterious matter to me. Something not be

Does talent exist?I know many people have different opinions about this. And here's what i think of it and why. I'll just answer the journal question up front, I think talent does not exist. And here's why:
Let's start with he question, what is talent? It's this magical thing that makes some people learn faster and develop faster than others in different fields. Let's take art for example, there are 2 different artists, both start at the same time to learn a concept and one learns faster than the other. But few people have stopped to ask themselves why that is? Is it talent, or is it something else?
Let me tell you a story about a guy who started an experiment to see if talent exists. He posted an add where he stated he's looking for a wife that will agree to marry him and let him test their children in this experiment. And they made 3 girls. The guy taught them all how to lay chess from a very early age, and lo and behold all of them became grandmasters in chess. This story is real, the guy is

5 ways to be more positiveDear, deviantart fellow artists
How to reach the happiness, how to have and maintain the positivity in our creative lives?
It's not an easy thing to stay positive all time. Trust me, I know... so here are some of my thoughts about the topic and I hope that they might be helpful.
1. Get away from negative people
Stay away from those who don't believe in you, who only show up in your lifes when they need something. As mentioned in the latest journal by DamaiMikaz - some people are just pretending to be your friends in order to use you or your skills (don't let them). Be aware of those who are trustworthy and it's said that "person will become the average of their five closest friends".. so be cautious and surround yourself with like-minded people, ones who support an

Contest: The Big Gender Photo ChallengeCanonAdventures and I will host our first contest together.
It's called "The Big Gender Photo Challenge". The idea is that female and male deviants hold a challenge in three photo categories:
PeopleConceptualAnimals, Plants and Nature
After the deadline on 4th of October 2014 we will pick one male and female finalist for each category. So there will be six finalists overall (two per category). Afterwards the finalists will compete in three polls. So there will be three polls (one for each category). Now it's up to you to decide who wins the challenge. The polls will be open for one week on both of our profiles. In the end we add all votes together to announce the winners.
Only photographyImages can be new or old but must be taken after January 1st 2013One entry per person per category maximum (of course you can enter just in one or two categories)
Episode 9 Online!Went online
"By the Seashore
Summer Vacation at the beach! You can finally relax, but when you're alone, even the sun and the ocean can become boring...Who will you meet by the seashore?
There are three episodes in one! If you meet a boy the first time, you will meet one of the other two boys during a replay, always at random. For example, you can meet Nathaniel, then Lysander and finally Castiel. After you have played the episode with all three boys, you will be able to choose which boy you want to meet!
6 illustrations available during this episode!! Do not miss your date, remember you have to choose the correct answers with the boy at the time of the date!"
If you run into your Auntie in this episode she will give you a translucent blue swan/duck floatie ring that sits around your waist. http://b1.img.v4.skyrock.net/b1a/amoursucre-974/pics/3036846359_1_5_K2fFSyuJ.jpg
There is also a hidden mustache somewhere in this episode .... which I think looks kind of villainy.
The Possible dat
AndromedaAmongst the darkened skies
Brightened by only starlight
Field & Sea.
Gravity is only an afterthought
Hilltops become ladders into the sky while
Inferior planets stare down upon the Earth
Jealous of such simplicity yet contemplating grandeur.
Keppler only thought of science
Linear, elliptical, movement…
Mythology had no such thoughts
Neptune & Nebulas both inhabit space
Orbiting across the lonely darkness
Probably never worried about mundane things
Questioning their existence
Right now or for all eternity such as us.
Shooting stars make us joyful while
Terminator is an otherworldly spectacle
Unknown to all those hidden in their houses
Various stars await us outside
Waiting to play like we did before
Xenagogue & inviting
Youthful but ancient curiosities.
Zenith induced euphoria continues until daylight…
