I Like Shy Guys by LJ-Phillips

Cal's Birthday falls on July 20th (he turns 23) - So we're having a Birthday contest.

Fanart/fanfic centered around the Cal's birthday. The competition falls into two categories. Fan Art and Fanfic.

Prizes for Fanart and Fanfic Categories:
1st Place - 1 month's Premium membership (per category)
2nd Place - 300 points (per category)
3rd prize: 200 points (per category)

All entries will also get a mention in the 5-7 page birthday comic I'm working on (available for all Patrons) and on the comic website.

Fanart can be:
* An artwork featuring one or more of the Smoke, Fur And Stone characters
*A comic strip featuring one or more of the Smoke, Fur And Stone characters
* Please do NOT include any non-Skins characters (please do not include your OCs in this fanfic.)
* A pairing of two characters (pairing can be canon or non-canon. Yaoi and yuri is welcome. Porn is not allowed! So if you do a porny piece, be prepared to post a "clean version" of it on Deviant Art and put the porny version on say, Tumblr. Oh, and give us a link to it ;) (Wink)

You can include post the more explicit version or parts off-site, on say your Adult account. Oh, and give us a link to it ;) (Wink) Abuse of characters or non-con will not be tolerated.

A fun and flirty gender-bender fic by bbb35 
QuarryCaliban hadn't expected to see Quarry at Loyd's bar, she preferred to go there with others; like the few friends she made at the coven. To see her alone at the bar, and at this time of night was unusual. As it was he was slightly concerned.....and not just because she had kissed him before, not that it wasn't a good kiss. It was a great fact, the only kiss he'd had that wasn't his sister or mother. Not that either had kissed him QUITE like that.
She had immediately pressed herself against him, her breasts flat against his chest; not that she was flat. No, she had ample boobage and not over sized, no, just the right size, and until now he thought Gargoyles would feel like rocks all over. But her boobs were...well, soft...and Firm.
She had her claws at the back of his head holding him tight, as she sealed her lips against his, sighing and moaning. It was so unexpected...he thought she was a lesbian! He had heard it from the other Skins, most of the Ga

A delightfully humorous piece by redshasta (And it includes a lovely sketch of our two boys.)
Counting Stars 
That one ish.. ish... Pegashush.  The winged horshe.
Lot of work catchin' that one, flyboy, even for you.  Better stick to horses that don' fly, you want dinner on the table by six.
No!  No, thish wash a shpeshul horshe.
It spit-roasted itself?  Damn, they're good when you can get a fire pit big enou-
No!  It fought 'longshide our people in th' warz of antiquity.
Uh, anti-qui-ty?
Long ago.
Sho, you shee... itsh a horshe.
Naw, see, that's the constellation of the Buck.  You see the three Skins chasin' 'im?
Now theresh Aquila.  The Eagle.  Those're the tipsh of hish wingsh.  Th' Eagle guided our peoplesh to the aeriesh and taught ush how to shurvive on th' peaksh.
Not a fan of those things. Feathers in th' teeth; it's awful.  
All right, all right, look here.  Th' Dragon.  Th' Dragon ushed to rule the flying peoplesh until it became fatigued 'n turned into a conshtellashun.
Uh, right.  You know, I've

An amusing but poignant tale by Animaid101 It explores the bond between Quartz and his twin brother
Quartz - Drunk Like a Drunk DuckQuartz looked sadly at his glass. It has been quite a while since he sat down on the bar and started to drink. He had no certain reason for that, yet he felt like it was the only thing he could do. Considering the circumstances, that is...
"Quartz? Is that you?"
He didn't even look up at the familiar voice.
"Just leave me alone, Sed!"
"Aww, come on, bro! That's not very nice of you."
"Nice is the least I feel this evening, so go away, please!"
Sed examined his brother. Except some minor distinctions, just known to them, they resembled each other pretty well. Not much of a surprise, considering they were twins.
"Hey, aren't you supposed to be the better half of us? What's bugging you?"
"I guess I'm done with being the better part."
Now Sed really grew concerned. He took the seat next to Quartz.
"Is it... hrm, because of the Sergeant's nephew?"
Sed smirked.
"It was but a one-night-stand, you know, nothing special, we didn't even..."
"SHUT it!" Quartz jumped out of his seat and trie

Thanks for adding my photo, "Leather Shadow" from the Daily Deviation, to your favourites.  I am glad that you like it enough to want to save it.

My pleasure. I need to go back and comment when I replenish my data. It was a stunning photo, perfectly balancing the erotic with the artistic.

Thanks again.  It means a lot coming from someone as talented as you.  Photographer John Dobson always knows how to work a concept and then us the right lighting and colour, to make me look good.
