I thought it might make sense to do this? This list contains fanart dating back to early 2006, so some of it is very old and terrible. Newest stuff at the top of each section.

Note: now that I've mostly moved to tumblr, newer pieces will be linked there directly. However, I'd like to maintain this list, at least until such a time when the AO3 (hopefully) introduces direct uploading for fanart!

Happy New Year (I hope)! It's the season for holiday fanwork reveals. I wasn't as prolific as I was hoping this season, since life kind of got in the way, but I did write my one [community profile] yuletide fic and contribute two pieces of fanart to the [tumblr.com profile] startreksecretsanta.

Or Something (Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, Kim Pine/Envy Adams)
Set after the events of the film; Kim Pine is just stopping by her unassuming, mostly-deserted local watering hole to grab a drink and avoid her grad school applications, when to her surprise, she runs into the former frontwoman of The Clash At Demonhead scribbling away in a notebook in a corner booth. Well, bothering random rockstars is as good a procrastination method as any, right?

Writing this pairing was a fun challenge, especially since I primarily stuck to movie canon, in which Kim and Envy don't particularly interact ... and their characterization is somewhat streamlined. I did wind up pulling a little bit of background from the comics, playing off Envy's history as an anime fan, with the result that I couldn't resist including bonus fanart. )

dancing with the devil (Star Trek: DS9, Elim Garak/Benjamin Sisko)
For this, I wound up playing off the first part of the quote referenced by the episode 'In The Pale Moonlight,' one of my very favorites from all of DS9.

you can let your monster out (with me) (Star Trek: TNG, Deanna Troi/K'Ehleyr)
Ahaha, so this came out like some kind of bodice-ripping romance novel cover. However, after rewatching the TNG episode 'The Emissary,' I think I might need to revisit this pairing, because damn! I did always love K'Ehleyr; it's a shame she only gets two appearances.
reflectedeve: Kamala Khan, as Ms. Marvel, hugs Lockjaw the huge dog (supercuddle - puppy)
Oh my gosh. I just have an embarrassment of fannish holiday riches this year ... I'm a little beside myself. <3 How is everyone so awesome?

This has been, as I've said before, an extremely difficult year for me on a personal level, as well, of course, as on the larger social/political scale, and just. I can't say how grateful I've been for my fannish and online communities. This is just above and beyond. <3 (I am completely exhausted, because I stayed up until about 4:30 a.m. trying to finish art presents for my family, after spending the bulk of my 'free' time for the last few weeks working on commissions. So that's totally why I'm tearing up. No, really.)

For [community profile] yuletide, I received three lovely stories:

The Kerkylas Society (Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries, Phryne/Mac, Explicit)
In which blackmail and untimely death are plaguing a discreet Melbourne ladies' club, and Mac brings Phryne in to investigate. The plot is, of course, a bit sad and difficult, but handled well. The characters and their relationship are delightfully true to the material.

Interspecies Anatomy Lessons (Wayfarers series, Rosemary/Sissix, Explicit)
A porny little tag to the scene where Rosemary & Sissix get together in The Long Way To A Small, Angry Planet, complete with delightful silliness, frank exploration and comparative anatomy. Just what I wanted, jfc.

Tea and Time Travel (Oxford Time Travel, gen, General Audiences)
Set immediately after the end of All Clear: Verity Kindle and Kivrin Engle step in to offer Polly Churchill some advice and support in her disorienting position, returning home subjective months and literal years later than ever intended. The post-time-travel historian solidarity I wanted so badly! OMG, so great!

And, for [tumblr.com profile] startreksecretsanta, this adorable fic:

My Dear Doctor by [archiveofourown.org profile] justabrain (Garak/Bashir, General Audiences)
On-station fake relationship fic! :D Delightfully tropey and fun; when Bashir hesitantly proposes that Garak pretend to be his boyfriend to set some visiting aliens at ease wrt his trustworthiness (since they value serious relationships as a sign of the same), Garak predictably goes right for it. It's just the right kind of fluff for this versatile pairing, and makes me so very happy.

How many times can I use variations on "delightful" in one post? But seriously, the warm fuzzies are just through the roof over here.

I need to get some sleep, and then I'm finally allowed to start reading A Stitch In Time and thinking (even more) about lizard aliens, lies and betrayal ... ;)

Drawing Star Trek prompt art is proving to be a fantastic motivator for getting job applications and little bits of activism done, but sadly, I didn’t get nearly enough female-character-centric or f/f requests. So Im putting out another call, for those specifically. Have any for me? :D?

I’m still mostly doing DS9, especially Major Kira and Jadzia Dax, but also Lwaxana Troi, Grilka, Ishka, Tora Ziyal, Lenara Kahn, Leeta, Keiko O'Brien, Kasidy Yates, Natima, Ezri Dax (who I don’t know much about yet), etc etc.

Also feeling some TOS ladies right now (Uhura, Chapel, Janice Rand, the Romulan commander, T'Pring) … and maybe Ro Laren?

I’m also asking over on tumblr, if you wanted to be so kind as to reblog. And if you missed it, I’m listing all my fills from the previous round of prompts in this post.

Much love, guys. <3 And support, especially for those of you dealing with potentially fraught holiday gatherings this week.
reflectedeve: Kira Nerys, surgically altered to look like a Cardassian, and not liking it one bit. (my faaace - something has gone horribly)
I'm finding that I don't have many words of my own for the state of things right now ... I'm trying to find ways to do what I can (calling representatives, spending a lot of time on twitter getting angry), but yeah. In the meantime, this keeps happening:

Elim Garak, with his hand on Julian Bashir's shoulder; they are wearing tan trenchcoats and hats, standing with St. James Park in the background and apparently, ducks quacking nearby

Inspired by Good Omens, naturally. "My dear doctor, I don’t quite understand this ritual feeding of waterfowl. How does it pertain to intelligence work, exactly?"

I've been having fun with various prompts, as well (all quite SFW, don't mind me):

Kira introduces Ziyal to baby Kirayoshi
Jadzia beats the literal pants off Quark at strip tongo
Bashir offers Garak some enjoyable company during an infirmary stay
Jadzia Dax and Lenara Kahn enjoy a beach date
the potential usefulness of a Cardassian tail
Quark reacts dramatically at Odo & Lwaxana's wedding

I'm a few episodes into Season 7, although my frustration with a number of developments has slowed my progress a little ... on the other hand, the google doc I have for (ahem) story notes keeps growing, and I have a request out to the library for a copy of A Stitch In Time. I haven't tried to write fic outside Yuletide since at least 2005 (and the less said about that the better), and the last time I tried to write something really involved for a fandom was ... never? Labyrinth, maybe? Well, at least I have some grasp of what story structure even is, now.

I don't know, I'm ridiculous. But, I appreciate the distraction.
reflectedeve: Kira Nerys, surgically altered to look like a Cardassian, and not liking it one bit. (my faaace - something has gone horribly)
So I've had a really intense couple of weeks (mostly good, but exhausting), and like a lot of people, this election season has me wanting to hide under the bed. Or on Pluto. I'm between temp assignments, which means I probably have tomorrow off, at least. I want to do something fun and indulgent.

I want to draw DS9 fanart for you. Give me prompts, please? :D?

Some details about what I'm interested in doing! )

I also put a call out on tumblr and would be thrilled if you'd reblog it. <3
reflectedeve: Kira Nerys, surgically altered to look like a Cardassian, and not liking it one bit. (my faaace - something has gone horribly)
Um. Sooo. I seem to have fallen down a Garak/Bashir hole? I guess this is what I get for all the conversations with my roommate about how I don’t seem to have a taste for dark, complex, angsty stories these days. (SPN is the fandom of her heart, so naturally we differ a bit.) At least, not in fic. (Which, to be fair, I haven’t been reading a whole lot of for awhile in any case. I mostly look at a lot of fanart, and I listen to a lot of pro fiction audiobooks.)

I seriously have no idea where this sudden, intense fannish engagement is coming from. I’ve been contentedly making my way through DS9 for the better part of a year, finally, and while I love pretty much the whole cast (well, I have to admit, I still don’t care much for Worf, or O’Brien about two thirds of the time, but everyone else) and have a pile of pairings I enjoy thinking about … I don’t know. Maybe it’s the weather? Or the fact that I’m about halfway through season 6, and maybe the way that Garak and Bashir haven’t really interacted in awhile in canon has slowly been getting to me? Or it’s the stress I’ve been under lately? Although let’s be honest, that hasn’t exactly been anything new. IDEK.

But hey, yeah. Totally taking recs (thanks again, [personal profile] epershand) … for fic, and for active challenges? (Big Bangs and Reverse Bangs, I guess?) I mean, I should finish the show before I try and participate in anything, or read post-show fic (yeah, I’m saving “Letters from the Northern Continent”), but it’s kind of exciting to be feeling this kind of motivation to really get elbow-deep in a fandom again. (And while the dynamic between Garak and Bashir is particularly working for me right now, Kira is probably my favorite character, and there are a plethora of pairings and of course, all the team/found family feelings that I would be interested in exploring …!)

I also very much want all the Jadzia Dax/Lenara Kahn canon divergent AUs, naturally. (Both for the chemistry and the exploration of Trill culture/psychology.)

/asking for resources in a twenty-year-old fandom on a half-deserted fannish social media platform

In other news, I finally emailed some staffing agencies and was immediately landed with a short-term temp assignment and encouraging prospects for more, so financial crisis more or less averted, at least for now. I mean, I’m being underpaid, but I’m being paid.

Also, if you're Boston-adjacent, you should come get your indie comics on in Porter Square this weekend!

So I don't know who's around anymore, but ... anyone out there have a Claire Temple/Misty Knight art prompt for me? ;) I love them both so much. (Daredevil mostly hasn't interested me, but I'm thinking about giving it a try, if only for more Claire? Although I have a variety of qualms.) My inspiration's feeling a little tapped out at the moment, though.

It's been kind of a rough week. My unemployment ran out unexpectedly early (it's a long story, ugh), so I suddenly have no income of any kind, and I'm scrambling around trying to fix that on a much shorter timeline than anticipated. Also, my health insurance decided to blow up in my face yesterday (just stupid bureaucratic mistakes on their end), so I had to waste the whole day trying to fix it. And my back's been killing me for a few days for no apparent reason, so really, I'm about done. /whining

October's a busy month, and apart from the financial stress, it's mostly good stuff: comics (my favorite local conventions, lots of friends and colleagues I've missed, and a new ongoing sci-fi project), a really rad Halloween costume concept and a party at my house to wear it to, even a musical theater date ... although I'm waffling about that, because she's offering to pay for my ticket since I suddenly can't afford to and I am just not sure about that). Still, I'd kind of just like to curl up under a blanket with tea and a few mystery novels for at least a week. Or snuggle my godbaby, who I can't afford to go visit right now.

But hey, I'm having my usual way too much fun haunting the Yuletide sign-up summary and letters posts. I'm so excited to write this year. :D The requests for most of my offered fandoms are nicely balanced; I have no idea what I'm going to get, and I can't wait to find out.

Also, a friend has me babysitting her cat's new litter of kittens a couple times a week, so that does make just about anything at least a little better!

I’ve been thinking about posting here again (for things other than exchange letters) a whole bunch lately, especially with rumors of Tumblr’s increasing instability as a platform, and my lack of motivation to check out this Imzy thing. Oh, I’m sure if that’s where the next great migration lands, I’ll wind up following. But in the meantime, I miss this space, the sense of having a stable ’home’ for my fannish/private self online. I doubt I’ll ever post more than sporadically, since a lot of my internet/social media time is taken up by my more public persona, but even so.

Anyway, speaking of exchanges, sign-ups are open for [community profile] femslashex, and you should totally get in on it. It’s become my favorite annual fannish event, for fairly obvious reasons ... all femslash, massively multifandom, and includes fanart. I really like this trend in fanwork exchanges, even though there are a fairly small number of fanart pieces every year; I’m not sure if it’s the problem with outreach to fanartists (this is definitely an issue, and one I’m at a loss with), the number of people only requesting fanfic, or both. (Request fanart, people. Please? I mean, I get wanting a story, but we make nice things toooo, and we want to make them for you!)

covers for the five Craft Sequence books, by Max Gladstone

Also, possibly because I’ve become a heavy Goodreads user in the past year (and am thus much more conscious of what I’ve read when), I find myself wanting so many small SFF book fandoms lately. So I made a fairly tl;dr post over on my tumblr with some recs for books you should read and sign up for in exchanges! And now I’m going to crosspost it here.

I'm not dead or anything. Life just ... intensified for awhile, financial woes got even worse, and as a result I haven't felt like communicating much. Twitter has been a bit of a struggle, even. This may all be changing soon, however, as I'm relocating back east for a relatively fancy new job in the next month or so. Hopefully the blizzards will have stopped by then!

Incidentally, if there's anyone I haven't asked yet: if you happen to know anyone in the Boston area who is looking for a roommate (in a cat-friendly place), drop me a line?

Also, I'm going to Muskrat Jamboree (for real this time), so I'll see some of you there! :)

Ooh, I have had a week. It's been long and tiring and mostly dark and rainy to boot, and I've been singularly unproductive in spite of just having taken on some new (creative) professional responsibilities. This is about as grateful as I've been for Friday in awhile, especially since the [community profile] femslashex archive opens today at 8pm EST! There are currently 179 new pieces of f/f fanfic & fanart all ready to go; I'm so excited! (My own contribution will be here, though naturally I'll do a post here as well when I may.)

I'd say things have slowed down a bit, but that's not true so much as that I've been working more on deadlines than at my own pace. Here's a small roundup of exceptions and the like ...

Revisiting Rachel Summers. )

Oh, speaking of X-Men comics, I've also been listening avidly to Rachel and Miles X-Plain the X-Men, which does what it says on the tin in an entertaining, clever and deeply nerdy way. Highly recommended.

Meanwhile, on a more contemporary note: A tiny Braeden tribute. )

Last but very definitely not least, my contributions to the little [tumblr.com profile] fanartremixexchange! Which deserved to be bigger, so I really hope the idea catches on! And for extra fun, I was matched with ataratah. ;) )

Huh, I've been doing a lot of color work lately; I suppose that's good practice? I'm never fully satisfied with any of it (except sometimes the flats), though; I might make an effort to go back to more of my b&w inks for the next little while. Coming up: [livejournal.com profile] tw_fallharvest, [livejournal.com profile] teenwolf_bb, [tumblr.com profile] allydiareversebang, and [tumblr.com profile] teenwolffemslashexchange. Um. Oops?

So the other day I saw this post fancasting Rihanna as Crowley and Lupita Nyong'o as Aziraphale on my tumblr dash, and had to try and give it a shot. Could've done a better job with the shading, but it was super fun to do nonetheless! I should make a point of drawing more fancasts in the future.

Summer's ending, and with it, I'm supposed to be doing less fanart, but ... that doesn't really seem to be happening, does it? I'm currently signed up for [tumblr.com profile] fanartremixexchange, [community profile] femslashex, and [livejournal.com profile] tw_fallharvest. All my assignments are super exciting! And of course, here I am producing completely random things.

Scott McCall is a Magical Girl. )

Also, speaking of fanart, Teen Wolf, and Sailor Moon, I'm meant to be reccing the latter on [community profile] fanart_recs this month (and I'm behind! I need to get another post up, stat). Here's a roundup of my Teen Wolf recs from last month! )

It occurs to me that I know nothing about any incoming new shows this fall. Anything you guys are excited about?
reflectedeve: Pearl from Steven Universe, in a tux and top hat (I see you - oh hi there)
So I almost didn't watch the current season of Teen Wolf (which might have been a wise choice) because I was so sad and frustrated about Allison Argent's death. She was my favorite character, and I was not at all happy with how she was handled in 3B; even given that Crystal Reed wanted to leave the show, she was one of the main characters and deserved a much better closing arc. So as the new season was approaching, I started daydreaming about a spin-off. I mean, we have werewolves and banshees ... why not ghosts?

It's a shame that I can't find a functional reversebang, so I can try to get someone to fic this properly ... but I'm just going to go ahead and make so much art.

Here's a montage of 'excerpts' from the 'pilot episode.' )

And of course, there's the promotional image I posted awhile back, and ghostly embraces! [personal profile] ataratah even drew this lovely piece based on my original musing. I plan to do a whole bunch more "excerpt" images (although probably not another whole episode's worth). I guess I kind of needed an ongoing fandom project? :D?

Also, speaking of [personal profile] ataratah, here's one more piece of TW fanart based on a hilariously awesome prompt from her. Werewolf cabbage babies! )

Gotta dash (new temp job, whee), but before I forget - you guys REALLY SHOULD consider signing up for [community profile] femslashex! It's a MULTIFANDOM FIC AND ART EXCHANGE, focused on pairings with no canonically male-identified characters! There are so many amaaaazing fandoms. :D I'm so excited! It's great that more fests are starting to include art. <3

Also, this month I'm reccing Teen Wolf over on [community profile] fanart_recs, which is a great comm you should know about. I'll post a round-up here when I'm done. (Next month I'm doing Sailor Moon!)

Another huge fanart roundup, courtesy of the summer where I only have the energy to manage job search stuff, draw fanart, and let my whole professional identity lie pretty much fallow. :D?

Okay, that sounded a little ... yeah. Actually, things are looking up in a big way! I have a pretty big deal second interview tomorrow, for a position I'm genuinely excited for which also pays better than I'd had any hope of, so. Fingers crossed. And I am having a ball with letting myself soak more or less exclusively in fannish material for a bit. :)

Aaand last but not least, here are two more pieces for my birthday female characters doodle fest: the Queen and the Soldier (Serenity/Pluto) and Utena's birthday present. I know it's been months, but I'm still carrying the remaining prompts around, so you never know when more might pop up. :)

I can't believe there hasn't been any MCU fanart in all of this. I should fix that. Although I do kind of have (original) porn to be drawing, too.

At some point I really need to check around and see if there are any exciting bigbangs or reversebangs I want to participate in. I miss doing fic illustration so much ...
