Fat & Happy Run Down

Welcome to Fat-and-Happy! a group dedicated to the positive portrayal and acceptance of overweight / plus size / fat characters.

We do not believe in body fascism here at Fat and Happy and we believe that ALL body types are beautiful. There are many clubs on DA for our average or underweight brothers and sisters. This is a place for characters with a more to love.

This is Not an Inflation, expansion or feeder fetish group!

What is OKAY to post here at Fat and Happy

:thumbsup: Original Characters, Fan Art, Fan Characters, Random Characters.

:thumbsup: Anthros are also welcome! ANY character type is! As long as they shop in plus sizes they are welcome here!

:thumbsup: Skinny / Average Characters are more than welcome on the condition that they are pictured with a plus size character be it their best friend , family member or love interest.

:thumbsup: Males as well as Females are more than welcome!

:thumbsup: Every single facet of the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Androgynous, Transgender, Asexual-spectrum is more than welcome here!

:thumbsup: Mature Art Work is welcome but it MUST be submitted into the Mature Nudity folder THIS INCLUDES ANTHRO NUDITY! if you can see anything below the belt or female nipples it belongs in the mature nudity folder regardless of what species it is. naked is an equal opportunity employer. and MUST abide by Deviant Art’s Terms of Service - FAQ #554: Is my deviation Mature Content? Violent artwork can go into featured, but it still has to follow the T.O.S

What is NOT OKAY to submit to Fat and Happy.

:thumbsdown: Characters that are not overweight. This should be obvious but I have seen average sized characters allowed in other fat acceptance groups. Note: simply having, wide hips and/or large breasts or a beer gut alone does not constitute "fat"

:thumbsdown: No Feeder/Feeding- it’s fine for some groups but that is not a mentality we approve of here at Fat and Happy, our goal here is love for bigger / plus size characters to feel comfortable in the skin that they are in, not to feed them ridiculous unhealthy amounts of food until they are blimps.

:thumbsdown: No Pregnancy, Vore, Inflation, Expansion, MPREG. Nothing wrong with it. It just does not belong here.

:thumbsdown: No Photography or Literature. There’s already clubs for Plus Size photography on DA and Literature kind of takes the point out of seeing the plus size character.

:thumbsdown: Extremely Morbidly Obese characters, we like ‘em Big here but there is a limit. Like if their feet can’t touch the ground or they can’t get around without a scooter or a walker. If it could easily be mistake for expansion / inflation or fetish art it will most likely get removed.

Note to all Members

:thumbsdown: Don’t be an Asshole. Give your fellow members the same respect and courtesy you would want.

:thumbsdown: Any racism, Homophobia, Trolling, Sexism or Sizeism are grounds for immediate removal from the club. This includes hating on our thinner counterparts…that’s not what we do here.

If your work breaks any of these it will be removed from the clubs gallery. I will remove any and all art at my discretion. If you feel that I have been unfair in this feel free to note me on my main account - Candy2021 and we can discuss it. I can’t promise I’ll accept your work into the club just because you complain but I will give you a reason why it was declined.

When noting me for any reason always be civil and clear in what you would like and I will do the same.

Please and thank you! And enjoy your stay here at Fat and Happy!








Hello, group! it's been awhile since our last update indeed.

But some changes need to be made. It has been brought to my attention that fat fetish material has been sneaking into our group. as you know this violates our guidelines. ->…

I'm not well versed in how to spot fetish art so I cannot catch it all. But I am implementing some new rules to help cut down on this and I hope my contributors will follow suit.

The new rules are as follows.

1.) No longer will images of a characters eating or pictured with food be accepted. I tried to be flexible with this but it has been abused, so I'm just flat out banning it. food being in the image will be judged on a case by  case basis.

2.) No longer will characters in ill fitting clothing be allowed. I realize that in real life it's very difficult for plus side individuals to find affordable clothing that fits in reality. But art is fantasy and in a perfect world all plus size folks would have clothes that perfectly fit their banging bods. make it so.

- to elaborate on what I mean by ill fitting clothing is. clothing that is obviously too small for the individual. things like crop tops and mini skirts are acceptable- but clothing that that digs into the flesh, floods, rips or tears around the body. is explicitly forbidden.

3.) Any mention of the character gaining weight, this includes but not limited to phrases like "If only they could be bigger!", "my how you've grown!" , "only a little more weight" etc.... I shouldn't have to say this as expansion is already disallowed in this group...and yet I have to mention it anyways.

If you have any personal issues with these changes you are welcome to question them but they will not be changed. and if you have a problem with that you are welcome to leave the group.

I am wondering why all my submissions for the last year (or longer) have not been accepted, and yet it seems like i have some sort of moderator status on the page?
Candy2021 Featured By Owner Oct 30, 2014  Student Digital Artist
That's a great question. You're a contributor because you frequently post works we like to feature, if you don't want to be just say so and I can change that.

I haven't gotten any submissions from you in the last year that I can recall , but I know I haven't declined any. the only reason a submission would be declined would be if it breaks the rules or is in the wrong folder.

but I'm quite familiar with your work and I don't think we've gotten a submission from you in quite awhile.

I love being a member, but none of my submissions ever get accepted since about 2 or 3 years ago.  I've submitted many over the last few years and they all got either rejected, or were left without being looked at maybe.  It's the reason i stopped clicking on this group's name when i submit my work to different communities.  
I just wondered why.  Was the page leaderless for a while or something?
Candy2021 Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2014  Student Digital Artist
And we enjoy having you. But If we aren't getting your submissions, there really isn't much I can do about it.

The page was never leaderless, it's always been me. unless one of the other contributors has been declining your works and I can't see why they would- I went through the action log and I haven't seen any of your works accepted or rejected for quite awhile. So if you've sent us anything for consideration we have not received the message.

I don't know if it's a glitch or if they are expiring prematurely or what is going on. But I would have liked to have known about this sooner.

I guess all we can do now is more forward. send me a handful of things and I'll let you know if I see them in the submissions.
