xmenreversebang 2012 art master post

For the X-Men Reverse Bang.
Story by ohmydarlingdearWould You Really Rush Out For Me Now? | Bodyguard AU. When Charles begins to receive anonymous death threats, Raven takes it upon herself to hire him a bodyguard. She hires Erik.

You guys, the fic is all kinds of awesome and must be read. ♥ I wanted to draw so much more for this but my plans got derailed by work things. It kind of sucks that I didn't realize until just a few minutes ago that I failed to represent Erik other than his hand and that the rest of the pictures are a bit dark. Oh well.

Now on tumblr!

Everything About It Is A Long Song by pocky_slash

Erik's spent fifty years being a figurehead and he's ready to leave that behind. Luckily, so is Charles.

(aka Old Retired Dudes in Love)

THIS. This. This is what I always imagine Charles and Erik to have/be years into the future. There are challenges but it's them and they're finally together and they're trying and they're happy and still so much in love with each other. I love these two.

Also, serpentinelion's GLOMPFEST. It's that time of year again. :D Leave your prompt here! The prompt post will close April 12th so get yours in while you still can.

fic rec, dogs, and helloooo

Good morning, everyone. Have a sad fic to start your day off:

Stand Down by turtletotem (X-Men, Charles/Erik, character death)
At the end of their lives, Charles has to convince Erik that it's okay to stop fighting.

I'm sitting at work trying not to be ;____________; all over the place. But my sister happened to send me a picture of the dogs so it's okay:

Anyway, it's been a while. How are things, flist? Tell me what you've been up to. *chin hands*

As for me, I'm still struggling to get over this stupid art block that I've been having where everything I try to draw turns out looking dumb and not at all what I imagined it to be. It's really quite frustrating because my xmenreversebang is due in 2 days and I can't even draw a straight line. It doesn't help that I haven't yet made up my mind about what to draw. :|

Also, eagle_bigbang has started posting! \o/

fic recs? fic recs!

I'm a sucker for hooker fics or stripper fics or similar fics that end with happy endings (both in the physical and metaphoral sense). Strangely enough, I've never seen Pretty Woman. Anyway, here are a few that I've read lately:

I've yet to read We Met At The Park by faviconstarrose. I was waiting until it was compelte before I started but not that it is done, it will be next on my to-read list. :D

Also, if you've got any like-minded fic recs then gimme gimme! I will take any from the following fandoms: Harry Potter, Supernatural, XMFC and The Eagle.

Random question is random. Should I go to Ascendio in July? Hmm.

oh you know, just things

Work Things:

I hate when people don't know when to shut up. I really, really do. Especially if said people are talking about something I have very little interest it.

There's this girl I work with who stops at my desk constantly to talk things through, hash out ideas, and ask for my opinion on things. Sure we're working on the same overall project but she has her to-do list and I have my to-do list and though our to-do lists intersect at certain points we're mostly functioning independently from one another. I just want to shake her and tell her that I don't give a fuck. But I can't because that would be rude. So I just nod and say yeah uh-huh a lot and look pointedly at my computer screen in the hopes that leaves sooner rather than later.

Fic Things:

Little Birds by faviconwinterhill
Bird AU. Erik is a lone kestrel on a mission to destroy the great golden eagle who killed his mother. Charles is an abandoned pet dove with no fear and a dream of making a place where the little birds can fly free. They don’t quite want the same thing, but together they’ll change the world.

OMG SO CUTE. It's everything that's wonderful about XMFC and its plot and the characters but told with an avian twist.

It's definitely not something I would have read in HP, maybe in SPN. But this fandom, this fandom, has me reading things I wouldn't normally because suddenly everything seems right. Like mpreg, for example. I've never been into it but I somehow I saw one gif and read one fic and it's become a thing for me. Yeah, Idk.

Fest Things:

I've signed up for spn_j2_bigbang and xmenreversebang! :D

And because I never learn, I'm planning on signing up for the following when they come around: hd_smoochfest, hd_fanart's Art Fest, serpentinelion's Glompfest, bigbangbigbang and xmenbigbang.

Art: "Peonies Mean Life" (Erik/Charles, XMFC, G)

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. ♥

Characters: Charles/Erik (XMFC)

I got bored and this happened. It was more fully coloured originally but it started sucking a lot so I scrapped the colours. :|

Also, who's participated in a reverse bang before? Artists: how do you go about creating the art for it and how much do you draw? Authors: what do you look for in the art when you choose it? I have a general idea of what I want to draw for xmenreversebang but I'm not sure if I should make it multi-panel to give authors a better idea of what I want.

In RL news, my sister keeps trying to get me to sign up for e-harmony or some other online dating service. I keep telling her that while it seems like a good service, I'm scared that I'll be the one person that gets killed by the guy I get matched up with. So, not going to happen. D:

AO3, fic rec, and spn_j2_bigbang!

Guys, I think I'm doing AO3 wrong. I mean, I've bookmarked almost all the fics I've read so far and is there a maximum amount of bookmarks one can have? Because at this rate, I'm going to be bookaming ALL the Charles/Erik fics. Also, how do you link to an AO3 user like you would an LJ user and does anyone actually use it to post fanart or is AO3 only a fic thing?

Last night I read An Ideal Grace by nekosmuse and afrocurl and ASLDJFDLKJLK. It's a modern-day AU that features Charles as a Genetics professor and Erik as an English Lit professor. Charles' students drop out of his class because the time conflicts with the hot visiting professor's poetry class. Curious, Charles sits in on one of Erik's lectures and finds that he doesn't blame his students for abandoning him at all. Cue the confusion and misunderstanding as Erik mistakes Charles for one of his students.

This fic was funny and warm and the characters were engaging and it was just so so so good. And the important question is: ARE THERE MANY MORE FICS LIKE THIS?!

Take note! Writer and artist sign-ups for spn_j2_bigbang happens January 5th. :D :D :D

Also, I had a wrap for lunch and it had a ridiculous amount of onions which I picked out and now my hands smell like onions regardless of how many times I wash them. Grossss.
