Fanart Happy fanart update! Yes, it's a day late, but it's still here, for you! Take a look of these great pieces and do enjoy!


Keep Your Eyes Closed - .orangecake.

We have one creep-tastic winner for Fanart of the Week this week! The artist supplied a terrifying and creative piece depicting a hallucination that would leave anyone truly shaken. The attention to detail and addition of enemies in the background closing in on our beloved Lucas helps add to the unease of the unfortunate event unfolding in the scene. The colors are rich, the highlights are pronounced, and the unique style is riffe with personality and expression. Thank you for this work and we do hope to see you back in the future!

A Single White Whisker Amidst the Black Abyss

Fanart Good evening, Starmen! How are you all doing this weekend? Unfortunately, due to the site being down, we were unable to have a fanart update on Wednesday and our Artist's Spotlight, but I'm here today to make up for it! We have some absolutely great entries today, so I urge you to take a look below!


Today's Artist Spotlight winner is Chapurin Kororado of Magicant! He has been a member of this forum for a few year now, but recently started sharing his art with the community. Each picture features a character drawn in an adorable style and I certainly find myself smiling when I see a new piece. Please do consider checking out his gallery!

Don't Give up Until the End

Fanfiction I'm back again with a brand new Fanfiction update! Turns out, there's a lot of submissions for previous Funfests that never ended up in the archive or on the front page, so there may be some blasts from the pasts, but they will all be featured here, so be sure to check them out if you want to feel nostalgic or if you want something brand new to read!

Archive Dive: Reconstruction


This suggested fanfic was written by older members to this site, Hostile and Odori. This story focuses on Mother 3, mainly on a human chimera project. If you're familiar with the game, then you should know exactly what it is about. The story itself is well written and does have an engaging hook. However, reader beware, it does contain quite a bit of gorey content, but if that doesn't bother you, please consider giving it a read! It's perfect for the spooky season, and while that may have passed, it lives on forever in our hearts.

We want to hear from YOU! What are some of your favorite fanfics from the past? Whether it be on the new/old archives, the forum, what are some of the stories/poems that stood out to you the most? While of course we enjoy recent fics, this is mainly referring to older works that have long since been buried. Please, let me know here or through PM!


Monthly Prompt Post: Transition


If you're not familiar with Monthly Prompt Post, it's a monthly activity where you're given a prompt and you write a piece relating to said prompt. There are badges for simply participating and mainly, gives you a reason to keep up on your writing skills! If you've like to participate, you can do so here! You get a badge just for participating!My memories will be

Pre-orders for Bein’ Friends Zine Are Now Open!

Starmen.Net


In case you haven't been following the Bein' Friends Zine, pre-orders have just become available and we want to talk about it briefly. As for what it is, please take a look at the official description of the project:
The Bein’ Friends zine is dedicated towards the Mother series and the bonds it created through its stories! Whether you were inspired by in game friendships, or have found a lifelong friend of your own, the goal of this zine is to encompass the feel good vibe the Mother series masters so well.

  • Non-Profit with all proceeds (not including production and shipping) going to charity.
  • Features 25 artists in A5 format (5.5 x 8 inches) With a page count to be determined.
  • Copies will be physical and digital, with bundle rewards to be determined. Artists are compensated with a bundle of their own.

  • The charity in mind is the Tim Horton’s Children’s foundation, it’s a charity dedicated to helping low income families send their children to camp! The reason why we chose this one in particular is because it embodies the Zine’s spirit perfectly! Summer camp is an experience like no other, with the potential to make lifelong friends and learn personal skills that will last you forever.


    Not only is this a great project, featuring some absolutely amazing art, but it is all for a good cause! You get to see some amazing work from other folks who love the series, even members here! You can find more info on their page. Please, take a look and consider pre-ordering!
