Second Place - BittersweetPairings: Hidan x Shikamaru
A month had passed since his fatefully encounter with that irritating brat, and still, Hidan's thoughts continually lingered on the boy. What was it about Shikamaru that had his mind spinning? Was it really just Shikamaru's cold, calculating stare that sent his blood boiling?
"Tch." Hidan scolded himself under his breath, but for some reason, he found himself inside of the Hidden Leaf Village, practically stalking the kid.
He'd been following Shikamaru around for the past two days, and of the things he'd observed, the one thing he'd learned about the shinobi was that he was lazy. Now as Hidan watched Shikamaru lounge around in a nearby garden surrounded by the sprinkled cherry blossom leaves, he wondered what it was he'd originally seen in the boy. What the hell had he been thinking?
Still, even as Shikamaru's chestnut eyes glazed lazily at the sky, Hidan could see the wheels turning inside that intellectual mind. He remembered Shikamaru's heated glar

Group Contest/Events News:
Since Secret Santa is over, I wanted to start a new contest, but still give everyone enough time to enter.
HidaShika Spring Contest Details:
:bulletred: Must be a member to participate in contest, if not a member, simply join to participate.
:bulletred: The contest theme is Spring. So you may draw or write Hidan and Shikamaru being romantic, or doing something cute for eachother, or simply enjoying the season. Valentines' Day will be around this time, so you may do something with that. As long as it has Hidan and Shikamaru as a pairing or friends. Entries must be rated K-T, nothing mature. There will be two categories, Art (meaning digital, traditional, fan comic, etc.) and Fanfiction. You may submit one entry per category if you want to heighten your chances. The art must be made by you, so no bases or stolen art, sorry to base users, but it just wouldn't be fair to those that actually have drawn their entries.
:bulletred: Entries may be in any medium, but must be a completed piece, not just a sketch, but must have shading of some sort. Do your best!
:bulletred: The will start on January 6th and the deadline is on April 2nd. Art must be brand new and for this contest, so please say so in the artist's comment.
:bulletred: Voting will take place via poll, all members will receive it once I create it. Entrants may vote, but not for themselves. They also may not recruit voters here or anywhere else. I want to keep our contests fair. Members should vote on the entry they believe best follows the theme and has the best skill.
:bulletred: There will be 2 separate polls, one for the all the fan art entries, the one gets the most votes will be in first place, the one that gets the second amount of votes will be placed third. The 2nd poll is for the fanfiction entries, the fanfiction with the most votes will win 2nd place. I'm doing it this way so that those that write fanfics a chance. If there is only one fanfiction written, it will go against the fanart, and the top three entries over all will be 1st, 2nd and 3rd place.</b>
:bulletred: First place winner gets a 3 month membership to dA and a digital art request from :icondrowning4you:, a full body traditional art request from :iconshika2112-83:, a digital art request from :iconnomnomkakashi:, a full color digital request from :iconhissori93:, a free commission from :iconmarshybarks:, 1000:points: from :iconrexhamster1:, and 100:points: from me.
:bulletred: Second place winner gets a 1 month membership to dA and 50:points: from me, 1000:points: from :iconrexhamster1: a one-shot fanfic request from :iconshika2112-83:, a digital flat color request from :iconhissori93:, a free commission from :iconmarshybarks:, and digital art request from :iconnomnomkakashi:

I have an idea and I'll join, hope the idea won't be taken because it's a very obvious idea ^^;
So I just have to make it yet :D
Yet I'm up to join the group...

Well just a question - does it has to be like a very piece of art or it can be as a comic? And if it can - will a comic be considered as art or a kind of fan-fiction?

:icongingersnap87:
Gingersnap87 Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yes you can do a comic and it would be be considered fan art in the contest :D
