"DrippingWords, otherwise known as Caitlan, is a gorgeous soul with a knack for bringing real life into the bulk of her poetry. With her hands in almost every aspect of the dA community in general--from a lovely suggestion on the notes system to book covers and group participation--Caitlan is bound to steal your heart with her writing and keep you coming back for her personality. She's also just started putting up her news article, Let's Talk Writing, again, featuring some of the most prominent names in the literature community. You're sure to fall in love with DrippingWords gallery, so go give it a thorough look-through!"

"Caitlan (DrippingWords), never ever stop writing. Every single time I open up one of your new uploads I just know I'll be blown away by your imagery, or the pure heartache in your words. You'll never know how much trouble I had picking out that one single piece of yours to feature, that's how great you are. Like I said before, if I could favourite you I would, and so should many, many others."
:iconlady-yume:Lady-Yume

"DrippingWords has been a constant supporter of a lot of initiatives within the community, most notably the now defunct DailyLitDeviations and the newly created DailyLitRecognition. I don't even know how many years she's been dedicated to helping the crew there bring great literature to the forefront, but I do know that I enjoyed working with her when I was helping over there. She's patient, intelligent, helpful, and full of great ideas. This community needs a lot more people who are willing to be the helpers, in my opinion. We could all take a leaf out of Cait's book."
:iconliliwrites:LiliWrites

"DrippingWords, Caitlan, I must say I'm thrilled you're back and writing again. You are a truly wonderful person, an absolutely fantastic asset to this community and an inspiration to me in all facets of my deviantART life. Please, please don't ever stop being your amazing self because you inspire more than you know and I love you. :heart:"

CRLiterature Book Club Journal Header by inknalcohol


Alright, this is a tad bit late, but it's finally here! I know you were all chomping at the bit to get down and discuss this entire book. Spoiler warning if you haven't read it!



Question 1


The pre-catastrophic society in Oryx and Crake is fixated on physical perfection and longevity, much as our own society is. What is the irony of these quests, both within the novel and in our own society?


Question 2


If you had the chance to fabricate an improved human being, would you do it? If so, what features would you choose to incorporate? Why would these be better than what we've got? Your model must of course be biologically viable.



FAN ART

Scene1 by some-hipster Young Oryx by october-wind Oryx and Crake by lemonfruitpie Paradise by hehthar



Question 3


How does Snowman's invented mythology of the world compare to Crake's attempts at genetically reformulating the world? What are some of the parallels between Snowman's creation of myth and Crake's creation of idealized life?



Question 4


In what ways does the dystopia of Oryx and Crake compare to those depicted in novels such as Brave New World, 1984, Fahrenheit 451, and in Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale? What is the difference between speculative fiction—which Atwood claims to write—and science fiction proper?


ACTIVITY


There are a lot of really cool, and really gross, animal combinations in the book. Our challenge for you is to either draw one of these creatures that Atwood has already created, OR make up your own and tell us what the gene splicing would benefit, like how the wolvogs were developed to be predatory and help like reduce the glow-in-the-dark rabbit population. The drawing doesn't have to be perfect; if you wanted to, you could even do a photo-manipulation, as long as you source your stocks. Once you finish, link it here and it will go toward your point tally to win the prize!


PRIZES

Speaking of prizes, the winner from June's Book DOWN A DARK HALL, is vespera! Congratulations for being awesome! PinkyMcCoversong will contact you about the prizes soon!

This month our prize comes courtesy of St. Martin's/Thomas Dunne Books! Futuristic Violence and Fancy Suits by David Wong!


All you have to do to win is participate in the discussions in the middle and end of the month, reply to other people's comments, write reviews or fan fiction, draw fan art, or contribute to the activites! I'll be tallying up points and the person who contributes the most will win this month's prize!


Check out the rest of this year's books on the calendar and then go get started on the August Book: LOVE IS THE DRUG by Alaya Dawn Johnson!!
