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:
HP - H/D kiss mistletoe

hd_holidays reveals!

Reveals for hd_holidays are up! :D SEE IT HERE!

khasael wrote the most perfect fic, Harry Potter and the Problematic Partnership, for me. She did a brilliant job capturing everything I like in H/D: snark and fighting and mystery and sweetness and working together for the greater good and happy endings. Seriously, it was perfect and I can't thank her enough. ♥ ♥ ♥

In case you missed the link:

Harry Potter and the Problematic Partnership by khasael. Forced to work together on an important case within the Ministry, Harry and Draco find that if they're not letting their animosity get in the way, they might actually be brilliant together. For as long as the assignment lasts, at least.

I drew Behind Closed Doors for faithwood. :D It's NSFW.

'tis the season!

You guys. YOU GUYS. Christmas came early for me:

Tidings of Comfort and Joy by mothermedusa20 (Sheldon/Penny, G, The Big Bang Theory) Sheldon wants to buy Amy a Christmas present and he recruits Penny to help. They shop around, they bicker, they take pictures with Santa and essentially have a good time. Soon, Penny starts to think that maybe Sheldon really is the guy from her story after all.

Sheldon and Penny go Christmas shopping but things don't end up as planned. There are such cute little moments of awkwardness between Sheldon and Penny in this and such a sweetness that warms my heart.

Harry Potter and the Problematic Partnership by Mystery Author for hd_holidays (Harry/Draco, R) Forced to work together on an important case within the Ministry, Harry and Draco find that if they're not letting their animosity get in the way, they might actually be brilliant together. For as long as the assignment lasts, at least.

I love it when Harry and Draco are forced to work together because it lends itself to so many things. In this fic there is much snarking and banter set against a fantastic and creative case.

I love the holidays! :D

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.

Fragile Flower by lizardspots

I've always been in awe of the way Lizard portrays Snape so when she opened up a few commission slots last week I jumped at the chance to get on this list. I asked for a teenaged Snape brooding over a lily flower and IT'S EXACTLY WHAT SHE DELIVERED, OMG.

help_japan and art rec

help_japan auctions are done! Thanks to everyone who bid. ♥!!! You guys are wonderful and I love it that we as a collective group of fandomers can get together and fundraise for a good cause. I know that it's not a new idea and that there are other help communities out there. But this whole thing just makes my heart burst with such sparkly love for everyone.

This also makes my heart burst with art love: mayfly_78's Harry/Draco remix of Klimt's Water Serpents II Love love love the colours.

RRRoll Up the Rim update: Tim Hortons - 1 billion, Me - 3. I won a donut this morning. YESSS. I theorize that a good portion of the winning tabs are in out of the way places like Athabasca, Alberta. Totally not cool because it's almost summer and I need to win a barbecue. I could just go out and get one, but where's the fun and excitement in that?

Random things:

  • Anyone watch Mad Love? It's got Jimmy from Breaker High on it. JIMMY. BREAKER HIGH. All it needs is Ryan Gosling.

  • Also, ♥ ♥ ♥ to lauriegilbert. Just 'cause.

  • I feel super old whenever I see next gen HP stuff. I can't wrap my head around the Potter, Weasley, and Malfoy kids... can't even call them by their names. I need to go read some Marauder era fic. Oh, MWPP.

  • 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.

Big Bang, Baby! Round 3!

So awesome. I've never fangirled fandom harder than right now - ILU BIG BANG AUTHORS AND ARTISTS, you give me such warm and fuzzy H/D love. Mad props to bookshop, shaggirl and midlunacy. The site is lovely. ♥ ♥ ♥

Umm, I have a question... Does anyone know how to make album art covers for the iPod Touch? I just bought one yesterday and now I'm trying to sort my music library and album art for all my shiznit would be great. :D

Meme! I can't remember on whose journal I saw this last:

You are in a mall when the zombies attack. You have:
1. one weapon.
2. one song blasting on the speakers.
3. one famous person to fight alongside you.

1. Dude, the Elder Wand. But only if I am its true master, mwahahahaha.
2. Snakes on a Plane by Cobra Starship. So catchy! And snakes are totally like zombies.
3. SamandDean because they're, like, one entity, you can't have one without the other.

Will post big_bang_hd art later. Now I must go and teach my sister how to dive. OMG. *makes a face*
