Something Survived


Welcome to the Final Fantasy VII: Dirge of Cerberus Club.

This is a club for all those who love the game Dirge of Cerberus from the Compilation of Final Fantasy VII. If this includes you, don't hesitate to Join our Group!


Please read the Rules before joining OR submitting artwork. :)

:blackrose:Submitting Artwork:blackrose:

Please submit artwork to the correct categories (ie: Cosplay photos in the Cosplay folder, lit in the Fanfiction folder, and everything else in Featured). You may submit as many works at a time as you'd like; however, not everything is guaranteed to be accepted. (This is especially true if you submit several pieces that are very similar, such as a series of cosplay photos, but feel free to submit away!)

Explanations for submission rejection will generally not be given unsolicited. If you would like to know why your submission was rejected, please comment on the submission itself (NOT the group's main page, unless you enjoy potential public embarrassment) and ask me. I will be glad to let you know what specific aspects of the artwork I felt were not up to par. If you would like suggestions for improvement I'll be glad to give that, too!

Please do NOT resubmit something if it has been rejected. My decisions are made with much thought and are not going to spontaneously change just because you clicked that button again. If you feel that my decision should have been different, you'll have to discuss it with me.

If a submission has expired, please DO submit it again! I am a busy art student/shoe salesperson and I sometimes forget to check the group requests for a few days. =)

Guys, there are about 16,777,216 Vincent Valentine cosplayers in the universe.

I'm going to start imposing the same strictness on cosplay as I do on art in this group.  If you're cosplaying Vincent and you want it in this gallery, you'd better look exactly like him with a professional photographer and studio lighting or have done something incredibly creative and/or witty with the costume.  Please.  I'm sick to death of looking at cosplay.  I understand you're excited about the work you've put into your costume but even closeups on your amazing Cerberus or claw replicas (or boots! please, someone show me some really well done Vincent Valentine sabatons) are more interesting to look at than your drug store wig and backlit, out of focus, self-conscious, out of character smile.

"But Ravynne, you bitch!" you say, "How can you poop on someone's art like that?  It doesn't matter how much the cosplayer looks like Vincent, or how good the photo is; cosplay itself is an art!"

And to you, I say: Yes, cosplay is an art.  Photography is an art also, as is modeling.  And the supply vs. demand principle of Vincent Valentine cosplay has just reached the critical point of me henceforth requiring all three to be present in Vincent cosplay submissions if your Vincent Valentine cosplay otherwise looks like every other Vincent Valentine cosplay.  Reason being the same principle that I have always employed in determining whether or not fan art meets the acceptance criteria: no one joins this group to be notified of every single Vincent Valentine fan art/cosplay ever created, regardless of quality, because you can just google "vincent valentine fan art" or "vincent valentine cosplay" for that and spare your deviantART message center the bombardment of mediocrity.

Can't someone cosplay Reeve or something??  Shalua?  Shelke?  Now those are Dirge of Cerberus cosplays we haven't been inundated with yet...

</art school snob>

*Note: This is not about anyone in particular.  There are literally 10 different Vincent cosplay submissions in my inbox right now.

Sorry about the inevitable hurt feelings.

I wanted to ask if the Vincent in this submission is appropriate for this club?
He's more of a mix of Advent Children/Dirge of Cerberus, though this crossover story will make references to the events of Dirge of Cerberus and takes place afterwards.

Hi. Sorry it's taken me so incredibly long to respond. Very busy with life stuff.

Yeah it's probably fine. To be honest I don't make much distinction between AC!Vince and DoC!Vince. They're both post-FF7!Vince. But for that matter most FF7!Vince is still relevant to DoC, especially if his portrayal is ambiguous as to which year is being portrayed...

Unfortunately I don't have the time to read fan fiction these days, even in comic format, as I barely have enough time to remember I have some DA groups to moderate. But since the artwork is lovely, anything you submit to me from any subsequent installations of that story will be judged on its merits as a stand-alone piece of artwork and most likely accepted.

Hopefully at some point I'll have the time to catch myself up on any sort of story you might be telling there. (And, for that matter, on my own.)
