art rec!

Awaiting Ragnarok by Anonymous for hd_fanart's Art Fest.

;___; It's so pretty. And I'm not just saying that because it's my prompt. But really. So good. All the art that's been posted for far for this year's Art Fest have been fantastic.

Also, thank you to the lovely people who sent me virtual cookies. ♥ I always miss the cool things on LJ and can never reciprocate.

I have a phone interview this afternoon for a job that I really, really want. I am nervous. D:

no canning here

Fuck yeah! DONE LIKE DINNER: hd_holidays art completed and submitted, hd_fanart art completed and submitted, marvel_bang art completed and submitted (but we're allowed extra between now and the posting date).

Had lunch yesterday with lauriegilbert, furiosity, dbassassin, and a few others for lauriegilbert's birthday. It's guaranteed good times when fandomers get together. :D I learned two things yesterday:

  1. Cards Against Humanity is the bestest game ever. EVER. I haven't laughed that hard since forever. Seriously.

  2. I am always unable to can. See below.


Also, if you're somehow affected by Hurricane Sandy, please be safe.

where the h/d at?

Just read a sweet little Avengers/HP crossover and now I am dying for some good H/D fic. I'm such a horrible H/D fangirl because I haven't read nearly as many fics as I should have over the past few years. But that must be rectified immediately!

Dear flist, please rec me your most favourite H/D fics that you've read in the last little while. I will take your AUs, your Hogwarts-era, your angst, your humour, your porn - anything!

Maybe it'll help cheer me up and get me drawing productively again.

just stuff

real life things

The friend's bachelorette weekend came and went two weekends ago (I'm just a lazy face lurker who doesn't post). We left very early Friday morning, got to Montreal around 1:00 pm, checked in and promptly crashed in the hotel room. Good things that happened: poutine, lots of drinking, poutine, shopping, clubs (of the regular dancing and strip variety), wandering the streets of Montreal at 3:00 in the morning, and even more poutine. Bad things that happened: poutine, getting sick from the weather, cat fights in the hotel room, and the 9.5 hour drive back to Toronto.

I don't think I have eaten that much fries + cheese+ gravy in my life. Ugh.

Pinterest in a little crazy. I see all sorts of pretty things that I like and want to repin but for some reason I don't and then I find myself drifting to tumblr to reblog pictures of Tom Hiddleston.

work things

I'm kinda falling out of love with my job. Not the job per se (I love the field I'm in and there's so much potential in it) but the actual work place. It's so dull and staid and quiet and boring. Lately I've been wanting to claw my face off because it's so quiet. I'm not interested in our projects any more and it's starting to show and I hate that it's starting to show because I've never been less than 110% on the job. :( I've started looking around for new jobs, but not in any real earnest in the off chance that I fall out of the funk I'm in and start loving my job again.

fandom things

I've been reading a lot of Suits and Tony/Loki fics lately. :D But! I've missed both new episodes of Supernatural so far. This makes me weep.

Have submitted my hd_fanart Art Fest. I really loved the prompt and it was glorious to go back to drawing pretty boys in pretty things. There are quite a few other fanarts that I really have to get a move on in drawing.

I also need to get a move on my hd_holidays thing. Is there anyone that would be willing to help me come up with something? I seem to be at a loss on what to draw for my recipient.

hello, hello


October 22 marks my 10-year LJ anniversary.


Which means I have known some of you for that long and even more for nearly that long. And it's a real shame that we've never met in real life. I could be passing you on the street every day or working in the same building as you (these two scenarios are highly unlikely but, what if) and never knew it. Me/Fandom = the longest relationship I've ever had, lol.

Anyway. I'm going to Montreal this weekend for a friend's bachelorette thing. It went from Vegas to Cuba to NY to Montreal. The girl doesn't know how to make up her mind. I wish I could bring my drawing things with me so I can get some fanart done. But sadly, I don't think my friend will take too kind to my drawing slashy manlove while she's trying to have a good time.

Art post soon!

i can't even with some fics

When I read a fic by a new author I come across I like to look through all their fics for more reading material. This usually leads to good reads and new pairings and overall awesomeness.

Case in point. I read this:
Cryptonomican In Practical Application (In Pursuit of a Decreased Variable 'S') by cerebel (Tony/Loki)
In which Tony is a codebreaker, and Loki interrupts his perfected routine by having the gall to be a Nazi defector.

Which led to this:
You Feed Me Fables From Your Hand by cerebel (Clint/Loki)
Three years ago, the twilight of the Gods: Clint Barton watched as Asgard descended into chaos, unimaginable monsters against unimaginable power, death and destruction to a degree he never thought possible. Three years ago, he saw Thor wade into the fray and fight his way to his brother, Loki. Three years ago, he ran, fleeing with the rest of the Avengers, as the gods dissolved into memory and dust.

Today, he sees Loki again.

And then somehow finally to this:
Corruption and Creme Brulee by amanuensis1 (Clint/Loki)
Loki finds that Agent Barton is peerless. In all things. For a mortal. Which is unforgivable.

Okay, I've been reading amanuensis1's stuff for years now and her fics still make me ASLDJFHDSKAFLDK all over the place. While the first Clint/Loki fic is more along the redemption and fix-it lines (which I love love love), the second just made my brain short-circuit with its delicious mind-control, dub/non-con porny goodness. And the ending. The ending.

On another Avengers-related noted, I got my first pick for marvel_bang and the author (idk, can I mention who before claims end?) has already emailed me plot outline. It is GLORIOUS and cute and I can't wait to read the entire thing.

I need an appropriate fangirling icon.

community activities and fest pimping time!

  • marvel_bang is still looking for artists, vidders, and fanmixers. Sign up here if you're interested. Judging by the number of comments, there's close to 300 authors signed up and only 68 artists/vidders/mixers and even if we non-authors claimed 2 stories it still wouldn't be enough to cover half of the stories. So, go forth and sign up! Sign-ups close September 14.

  • serpentinelion's posted their Glompfest 2012 Masterlist which is filled with so much H/D awesome that I can't even.

  • eagle_exchange has started posting! avengers_rbb is posting! No wonder I can't make much headway in the fanart department. Between the fantastic fic, friends' wedding plans, and work, I barely have time to sleep!

    • On a random note, Coming to America was on tv over the weekend. Oh god, I love that movie so much. It's one of my favourites and it never ever gets old. :D

ultimate slash madness tourney

So there's this Ultimate Slash Madness Tourney thing happening.

A lot of the choice outcomes were so very clear, i.e. Harry/Draco, Charles/Erik, and John/Sherlock. But then they had to throw in the following:

Why would someone do this? Why would you make me choose?! In the end I had to go with a bit of brother-lovin' in the form of Sam/Dean and Thor/Loki. But still. Polls are very cruel things.

rec comms and art things

Is there a Marvel-centric or Avengers-centric version of crack_van? I know there's crack_impala for the SPN fandom and crack_broom for the HP crowd. I follow comicstore_news but I'd really like to follow a comm dedicated to recs. Can you tell I'm new to the fandom? Lol.

Also, I need to get started on some art things. My hd_fanart prompt is really very awesome as there were boudoirs and feathers happening in it and I can't wait to get started. But I might need some help coming up with ideas for hd_holidays. I am awful at coming up with ideas on my own.

everything is the avengers gag reel and nothing hurts

Hello, hello! ♥

I haven't really been on LJ much, just popping in every now and then to skim through the ol' flist and drop a comment here and there. I think that's what I'll be doing later this evening, sitting my ass down and actually reading through the entries.

It's really been tumblr and AO3 for me lately. Everything is the Avengers gag reel and deleted scenes and nothing hurts. GAG REEEEEL OMG. Also, the Steve deleted scene broke my heart. Come Steven, let me love you.

I seem to have developed a thing for Steve/Loki. :D :D :D I've generally been a one-to-two pairings per fandom type of girl but with the Avengers, I seem to ship everyone with everyone. There are some favourites (Thor/Loki, Steve/Tony, Tony/Loki, and Steve/Loki) but I'll read just about anything with everyone in all sorts of combinations. Except for Jane. I don't know why, her character irritates the shit out of me.

Anyway, peace out friends.
