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 [ profile] fanartremixexchange, [community profile] femslashex, and [ profile] tw_fallharvest. All my assignments are super exciting! And of course, here I am producing completely random things.

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?

Hey, so, I'm home. My laptop's still squirreled away in a drawer at the office, but one of my roomies was nice enough to lend me his.

The trip was pretty fabulous, and I'll have photos and stories later if everyone wants. I have to catch up on holiday exchange comments (and responses), various posted things, ninety kajillion [ profile] yuletide fic, etc . . . and work is likely to descend into madness almost immediately (I'm back tomorrow). So I should probably go to bed, but first!

Holiday exchanges were lovely this year, though I was sad to be away for much of the posting & anonymity. Now that the reveals are all done, however, I figured I'd share.

For [ profile] go_exchange, the holidays with Newt and Anathema. )

For [ profile] yuletart, Pete goes down on his knees for Patrick. )

For [ profile] yuletide, I wrote a little story based on the comic series Hopeless Savages, which is far and away the most obscure fandom I've tried yet. any taste that you feel is right describes a day in which young Twitch Strummer Hopeless-Savage feels a little off-balance, but the usual familial antics help to put things right. I'm a little shaky on this one, it feels like . . . it could have been longer? Or possibly just worked better as a comic. Prose is kind of awkward and difficult for me these days. Need to work on that.

I also received some lovely gifts. :) From [ profile] mandyvonblandy, a cute little Good Omens comic in which Crowley's Christmas card upsets Aziraphale's sense of propriety. From [ profile] derawr, a classic (flying) moonlight kiss, starring Karolina & Nico from Runaways. And from [ profile] hikaru, Nothing Is Innocent Now, a sensual coda to Sarah Waters' Fingersmith. Much appreciated. ♥

I've been trying not to crash for hours, but I really should go do that already. I hope you guys enjoy the art. Happy New Year, I missed you all!

I am such a lucky fangirl today! I received not one, but two fantastic Yuletide stories: a lovely lengthy fic, and an adorable little Treat as well. I must rec them!

Fandom: From Eroica With Love
Pairing: Klaus/Dorian
Category: preslash
Rating: PG
Description: "Klaus gets assistance from Dorian on a mission, and appreciates it about as much as he ever does."
Comments: This story is rather fantastic. It's beautifully in character (how I love cantankerous Klaus and breezy Dorian!), with a fun plot and lovely style (it's half banter, half meandering description). It's a bit . . . relaxed? in comparison to the manga, but honestly, that's something I look for in fic. ;) Plus, a bonus: titled after a blur song! Which makes me wonder if my author was just lucky, or really thorough. I love this story so much.

The Lady and the Dragon
Fandom: Excalibur (1988 comic)
Pairing: Rachel/Kitty
Category: gen (or very subtle femslash, if you like)
Rating: G
Description: "The Cross-Time Caper continues apace, and Kurt has a thrilling tale to tell Kitty and Rachel."
Comments: So adorable! This fits right into canon, and really brings to mind everything I love about the classic Excalibur tales. It's zany, slapsticky, and a bit touching all at once. The characters are just right: Kurt's dashing but inevitably trips up a bit, Kitty is a bit geeky and grumbly and young (I miss her like that), and Rachel, as always, a bit haunted. The central conceit of the story was appropriately bizarre and hit-you-over-the-head symbolic, and just, awwww. I love them. :) Bonus: yay Lockheed!
Quote: "Blech! Why do I always have to be the princess? This is, like, the third time! Don't any of these dimensions need, I don't know, computer programmers? Or superheroes? Or theoretical physicists?"

While I'm at it, there's also my sweet little [ profile] go_exchange story, though it was already posted awhile ago:

Father Christmas, Father Time
Fandom: Good Omens
Characters: Agnes Nutter, Anathema Device, Newton Pulsifer
Category: gen
Rating: PG
Description: "Holiday traditions, whether forbidden or irritating, don't change."
Comments: I never expected to actually get an Anathema-centric story--she's one of my favorite characters in the novel, and tragically underused in fandom--so I was thrilled to receive this. It's a sweet, slightly wry little look at family traditions in two different generations, with neat parallels. :)

Well, I have more family things to attend to. I can't wait to sink my teeth into the [ profile] yuletide archive, though I probably won't have much leisure to do so 'til after the New Year--I'm moving at the end of the week!

It's December now, so I'm allowed to listen to as much Christmas music as I like. ;)

Whee. I finally got my [ profile] go_exchange entry done and in (just under the wire). Now I'm all excited! I don't know if they're going to start posting entries today or tomorrow, but eee. It's been awhile since I paid much attention to Good Omens fandom, but working on a gift exchange will bring it all back quite nicely. ^^

So the reveal isn't until New Year's, and being me, I can't stand waiting to post my art 'til then. So, this post is filtered! And if you'd rather wait to look, you can do that too . . . I'll probably do a holiday exchange wrap-up post, with all of my various entries, sometime around the beginning of January.

Holiday cheer with Aziraphale and Crowley. )

Well, one down, two to go! Meep.

[ETA:] Public now!

Well, now that all the rush and lovliness of holiday exchanges has passed . . . I don't expect to be around fandom much for awhile. I'm up to my neck in a job search mess, and I rather need to concentrate.

Of course, we'll see how that goes (the staying away from fandom, I mean). I would like to do [ profile] comica_obscura again (and be more involved than previously). Also, the long-awaited season four of Kim Possible starts in February, and that's my most prolific fanart fandom, so. ^^;

But in the meantime, I'm off for a bit. Before I do, though, have a peek at my [ profile] go_exchange entry, drawn for the talented [ profile] winkout. I'm rather pleased with it.

Kind of . . . married. )

Also, I have to pimp my own fantastic gift, Silver Lining, by the lovely [ profile] argyleheir. It's a beautiful and moody piece, with a historical setting as per my request. ^^ Recommended, so check it out!

I should be working. But, my favorite procrastination activity is coloring old lineart. This was practically a doodle, which I think I drew during my last finals period. It's kind of random.

Fandom: Good Omens
Characters: (teenage) Pepper, War
Rating: PG
Notes: I guess Pepper grows up to follow in her mother's footsteps, in a sense. The background is a photo I took at a peace march that took place in Hyde Park (London) last year.

what is it good for? )
