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:
TBBT - Sheldon mouse ears

tl;dr

Long update is long, but I'm not cutting because I haven't updated in over two weeks and this is an amalgamation of those lost two weeks.

ishie wrote the most awesome TBBT fic for my help_japan contribution: Method Man (Sheldon, Penny, Wil Wheaton). It's got a quote-spouting, name-dropping Wil Wheaton who's a little bit of an asshole, a career-driven and margarita-fueld Penny, and a Sheldon who's very Sheldon, even while drunk. GO READ IT.

⇒ I'm still working on art for hd_holidays, harryronholiday, an art trade with mothermedusa20, a Dean/Ruby commission and inserts for the holiday cards.

⇒ Speaking of holiday cards, LEAVE YOUR ADDRESS HERE if you would like to received a holiday card. :D I like sending out cards and you probably like getting stuff in the mail, so it's a win-win situation. Comments on the entry are screened for obvious privacy reasons.

⇒ Fest reveals! I drew First Meeting (Harry/Draco, G) for hd_canon_fest and Stroke of Midnight (Harry/Draco, PG) for hd_fanart's Art Fest. I have to respond to all the lovely comments. ♥

⇒ I've been trying to organize my tags and stuff at Pinboard. It's going good so far but I've been getting distracted by the fics that I've bookmarked. It's like I'm compelled to re-read all the fics I've tagged.

⇒ Art rec! Tangled In You by letoist. A J2 twist on on Tangled. The art is gorgeous. The glow from the hair and the black and purple backgrounds and the little lights floating about are so fantastic. But my most favourite part is the scrolling down and down and down to get to the bottom. It reinforces the length of the hair and the height of the tower. Amazing.

⇒ On the work front, I've been so swamped with stuff. We've got site meetings and investigator meetings and audits and random reports due every week or so until the end of January that we're all scramling to get everything done correctly and on time. But whatevs, I say bring it (snakes on a plane).

⇒ On Saturday I went to Dave & Busters and it's usually a great place for food and fun. But man, it sucked the big one that night. It took almost an hour for us to get a table, we waited another hour for the food to come and the serving staff got a lot of our orders wrong, my friend ordered a brownie sundae and it took them another hour to tell her that they were out of brownies. Just horrible.

⇒ Also over the weekend, I watched Captain America for the first time. I was into Tony Stark's dad; it was the 'stache. And not knowing anything about Captain America (I didn't Wiki it like I usually do to movies), the ending where he wakes up after being asleep for decades threw me for a loop. Poor Peggy. Now I want to read harry Steve/Peggy fic.

⇒ Knowing how much I love Shel Silverstein, my sister left this on my FB yesterday and it made me lol:

Recently seen and read:

because you're there by damalur (Sheldon/Penny, The Big Bang Theory) Penny wants to climb Mount Everest. Sheldon wants to rewrite physics. They move to New York. The next few parts can't come soon enough.

Same As It Ever Was (Same As It Ever Was) by fujiidom (Sheldon/Penny, The Big Bang Theory) Sheldon wakes up in a reality that's his, but not really. Again, the next parts can't come soon enough.

Sorely Missed by Anonymous for hd_fanart's Art Fest (Harry/Draco, G) YOU GUYS, THIS ART IS GORGEOUS. And I'm not just saying that because it's my prompt. The artist captured the feeling of being underwater so well. Harry's expression just kills me. KILLS ME. It's a wonderful mix of love and relief and concern and anger over Draco being put in danger. OH BOYS.

It All Begins by Anonymous for hd_fanart's Art Fest (Harry Draco, G) It all begins, indeed. This multi-panel piece of awesomeness is clean and soft and the artist manages to capture so much emotion with just a few exchanged glances. I am SO envious of the artist's skill with lines. Actually, I'm envious of any artist who can convey feeling and meaning with a couple of sweeping lines and simple shading.

Sam and Dean and a little angsty schmoop by quickreaver (Sam & Dean, PG for bare-chestedness) The expression on Dean's face is so mournful. I love the details in his eyes and his freckles are wonderful. But the very best part is Sam's hair. &heart; My line envy applies to this piece too.
