Welcome to Elves-in-Distress!

Rules (brief)

Our group is intended to collect and promote artworks (images and texts) showing the most unpleasant moments of elves' lives - moments of distress. However, our purpose is not to punish the elves or to mock their suffering. We sympathize with them and give them our virtual but sincere hugs.

You are welcomed to join our group as members to submit your artworks here. If you don't have your own artworks that fit to this group, we advice you just to add the group to your watch.

Be nice to each other. No trolling, harassing, mocking, or rude comments about the artistic skills.

Submission rules
You need to be a member to submit your artworks. All submissions should go to the folder named "Submissions go here". Submissions by members are subject to vote, submissions by contributors are auto-approved. The administrators would then move the approved submissions to their corresponding folder and chose the best works to copy them into the "Featured" folder - our showcase.

The artwork must contain at least one elf in distress as an important feature. We also accept pixies in distress - little winged fairies. We don't accept any other fantasy creatures as a main subject of your deviations.

The distress, in our understanding, comprises danger, peril, threat, menace, despair, but also sticky or embarrassing situations. We insist that death and any kind of mutilation don't belong to distress - we don't accept them.

Please refer to the dedicated blog entries for more details:
--> Acceptable elves
--> Acceptable distress

Please don't put your deviation into storage after you submitted it to this group. We will remove all deviations in storage from our gallery (they simply spoiling the view).

Mature content
We acceptt and encourage nudity and sexual themes if the deviation is tagged as "Mature content" and complies with all DeviantART rules (check the references in our detailed rules if in doubt).

We admit various media, including: drawings, CG, photography (cosplay), written stories, dolls, sculptures, and photomanipulations (with certain limitations).

We don't admit several things, including:
  • Anything that violates DeviantART rules
  • Extreme violence, gore, dismemberment, a lot of blood and other stuff of such nature
  • Guro, most of it
  • Censored images. No censorship at all!
  • Excessive watermarking that destroys the picture
  • Futa (futanari)
  • Usage of bases
  • Stolen artworks (immediate ban from the group and report!)
  • CG renderings of poor quality
  • Photography, if the member who submits it is neither the photographer nor the model
  • Photomanipulations, if they incorporate photographs of real people or violate terms of usage of the images

In case of any doubts please take a look into our detailed rules. The text is long, but in case of issues we would refer to it.

Enjoy your stay at Elves-in-Distress!

I wrote a story last year, and even though it's not the focus, two chapters have some elven distress. Can I share them here?  Ambushed by Betrayal- ch3
    Tyria awoke first, but soon wished she hadn’t. She was shoved or punched for every sound or unauthorized move she made. Hands tied behind her and a rope around her neck, she followed the band of orcs through Nektolus Forest. She looked around for Janus or Elliot, but took a punch for her trouble.
    They soon arrived at an old stone fort. It was dirty and many of its features had long since crumbled, but the etched designs still showed through. They were flowing, flowery, and beautiful. Tyria guessed it was made by her own people, centuries or even millennia before, when they still made their home on this continent. In any other situation she would have gladly visited the ruin.
    They marched through the front doors and into the main hall. It was large enough for at least two hundred people, though the tables and chairs suggested it rarely went above twenty. Thick pillars dotted the room. The walls were lined with
  Ambushed by Betrayal- ch4
    Right turn. Third left. Or was it the fourth? Another hall. Past the prison cells. Left. Left again. Right. Down the stairs.
    The path to the torture chamber was much shorter than Janus would have preferred. The chamber’s rusty metal door opened with a loud creak, letting out a whiff of rot and decay.
    The chamber itself was small and lit by torches. On one wall was a rack of various saws, barbed whips, and other small torture devices. In the center of the chamber was a large torture rack. Its previous victim, a male human, remained, its flesh rotting off and its torso stretched far too much for the spine to remain intact. The corpse wore a Freeport Militia tunic, likely part of the price for Daks and his friends meeting Xen and Claw and walking free.
    The orc shoved Janus into the chamber, hard enough that Janus tripped and hit his head against the end of the torture rack.

I read the story with pleasure, even despite I am not a fan of traditional fantasy settings - I prefer to mix fantasy and sci-fi. This is a very good writing on my opinion, and of course you can share it in the group. I am not sure what would be better - to submit these two chapters or all five. I tend to believe that the complete story would be more appropriate even if the dramatic part for the elf maiden starts in the third chapter. You see, I started reading from the third chapter, and honestly I was not sure who was who (except for the lady of course) until I returned to the first part.
