Drawn for this fic, For I Mean To Conquer Troy by twelve_pastels:
Set one year post movie, Charles overloads himself in Cerebro, and his mind goes walkabout; wherever he is (and he’s around), it’s not in his body. Erik temporarily takes over the school in his absence, and finds that there’s little time for resentment or hatred when he’s busy organizing assigned reading for English lit, keeping the youngest children out of trouble, and trying to talk Raven into wearing clothing for the boys’ sake. Somewhere in between taking responsibility for the students and dreaming Charles’ dreams every night, he manages to remember that he’s something rather more than a weapon. In other words: A Love Story between two Gentlemen, told in Prose, Epistles, and Nonsense Rhymes.

In the fic, Erik writes to a sleeping (coma?) Charles and tells him about being given a peony while recovering in a hospital after being freed from the camps. The mother of one of the nurses had her bring the flower for Erik as a way to brighten his day and help ease his suffering. Since then, Erik has associated peonies with life. And so when Charles is in the coma Erik took to leaving peony cuttings by his bedside.

So yeah, I reread the fic yesterday during a bit of downtime at work and then all I wanted to do for the rest of the day was draw a peony. This fic, man, this fic. ;_________; I really really really like how the peony came out. :D

Sorry to my flist for all this X-Men and Erik/Charles spam. I promise there will be something H/D or even Supernatural related in the very near future. ♥

Now I must go and answer comments. ♥

Art: "In Eridu", illustration for spn_j2_bigbang

spn_j2_bigbang time!

Title: In Eridu
Author: takadainmate
Pairing: Dean/Castiel
Rating: PG-13
Summary: In Chicago, there are omens that point to something big. There's a heatwave that won't end, and the only clues Dean and Sam have to go on are a long history of people going missing from around Lake Michigan and Castiel's weird behaviour. There's something Castiel has forgotten and it's driving him mad.
Six thousand years earlier two other brothers fight to save their world from a slow, pitiless end by calling down the creature responsible. What they get is something they'd never expected, and the brothers come to think that maybe this being, who is powerful and righteous and calls itself Castiel, can save them all.

Click on the smaller drawings underneath the title card to see it in full. I had such a great time drawing for this fic because it's such a great story - well-written, inventive, and on-point with the characterization. Seriously, I ♥ it. The first two are of Sam and Dean and the past versions of themselves. The third is of Castiel in the past. There's a scene in the story similar to when Castiel's first introduced in the series where his wings are seen as a shadow. I wanted to draw my own version of it and tie that to the story. The third is of a kiss that occurs near the end. :D

Go read the fic!

Sheldon/Penny art, I has it

The bombing/shooting in Norway is tragic. There are over 80 people dead in that youth camp. These types of attacks are disgusting and cowardly and I can only imagine what people in that part of the world are feeling right now.

For The Big Bang Theory fans on my flist - my art for sheldon_penny's summer remix challenge has been posted! It's a multi-panel visual retelling of weasleytook's fic At the Fork in the Road (one of my all-time faves, so). I have a thing of time/inter-dimensional travel stories with happy endings.

The art below is only the cover. View the whole thing at sheldon_penny. :D I think my most favourite things in the panels are the Starbucks cup. Leonard's glasses, and Sheldon's bloody hand, lol.

I don't know if I should claim another prompt for the remix challenge or if I should start on spn_j2_bigbang illustrations which are due in a few weeks, OMG.

And hello new friends! ♥!

ilu guys and glompfest art

I am late in doing this, but thank you to everyone to sent me chocolate heads! Delicious! ♥ There is thank-you-art on the way but I should really get cracking on my big bang illustrations first. So for now, you guys great big a great big verbal thank you and hugs!!!

My glomp for teapostal has been posted at serpentinelion! It's based on Rilo Kiley's song of the same name, Does He Love You?. I took teapostal prompts of "angst", "infidelity", and "unsuspecting!Ginny" and ran away with it.

tbbt fic rec

This is how Season 5 of The Big Bang Theory should start → And I'm Knee-Deep In It by fujiidom. Seriously. To quote the fic summary, it's "an alternate take on the aftermath of the fourth season finale". This was my help_japan fill and I could not be any happier with it. There's an accompanying fanmix, too! Thank you fujiidom, you're the bestest. ♥ ♥ ♥ This totally made my weekend.

There has been an explosion of Castiel related things following the SPN finale and as much as I'm down with it, I still don't know how I feel about the turn of events. Maybe after a few rewatches I'll make up my mind one way or another. I have a burning itch to draw all sorts of things now, though. :D This indecision might be good for me.

  • Edited to add a rec! Scent Memory from hd_remix. Fic remixed into art, but it's much more than that. It's more like a short film of drawn scenes from the story with perfectly placed quotes and simple but evocative illustrations.

pet photos!

Recently I've been seeing pet pictures cropping up on my flist and I wanted to get in on the action. I've got 2 dogs - a 5 year old Shih Poo named Chinky (don't ask, and I'm Asian, so) and a 1 and half year old Shih Tzu named Hopia. They also go by Stinks or Hoppers, or My Buddies (totally lame, but whatever).

Collapse )

The wooden chest that they're lying on in that first picture is pushed up against a window facing the street. It's their spot and it's where they catch some sun, bark at other dogs, and generally hang out. When they're not looking out the window, they're usually curled up sleeping in their beds or on the couch. They do this thing where they run around the house like mad beasts and crash into the legs of tables and cabinets and doorjambs; it sounds and feels like a stampede when they do. But it's really cute because when they stop they fall into a heap and fall asleep wherever they feel like. Stinks is the Skinny Buddy because she's so lean, muscular and weighs only 11 pounds. Hoppers is the Fat Buddy because, well, she's pretty thick. She weighs 18 pounds and has these short little legs that give her a funny gait. Even though she outweights Stinky she still gets her beat up when they play fight because she's too slow. Haha, oh my dogs! ♥_♥
