TBBT - Sheldon mouse ears


Prompts are up for xmenreversebang! Go see the awesome art up for claiming.

There are so many amazing pieces of fanart and I'm blown away by the sheer awesome of the artists in the X-Men fandom. ♥ I'll be biting my nails until claims day (which is tomorrow) because I'm afraid that mine won't get picked because everyone else's is just so much better but it's okay if it means getting to read fic based on this or this or this or this or this or this or all of them, really.

Also, teapostal and omens, you guys are seriously awesome at Draw Something. I apologize for my own inferior skillz at this game. :D Anyone else have Draw Something?! I need more people to play with because I need to earn more coins so I can buy different colours. How am I supposed to draw things with only a limited colour palette?! I'm ginaraf so come play with meeee!

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. ♥

spn_j2_bigbang sign-ups!

Just signed up for spn_j2_bigbang! it looks like it's going be huge again this year. The artist sign-up post is already 4 pages long and the author sign-up post is on its 10th page. O_O If you haven't signed up yet, the author sign-ups are here and the artist sign-ups are here.

I can't remember whose journal I saw it on, but apparently hd_bigbang won't be around this year? Can somone confirm or deny? I didn't see anything posted at the comm.

Guys, I ship Charles/Erik so hard. SO. HARD. All I want to do (and all I've been doing, really) is reading ALL the fic because I am filled with SUCH FEELINGS that sometimes I can't function properly. I'll be sitting at my desk or on the couch and reading fic and grinning to myself or making sad intense faces at my screen like a big giant loser. And when I'm not reading I'm watching McFassy interviews and listening to Michael Fassbender laugh. Lol, What a sad little life I've created for myself. I need to find "a friend", as my mom puts it.

I really can't say / Baby it's cold outside

Most have gotten my holiday cards already, so yay, I'm posting the art! :D The above is the Harry Potter insert. This really goes out to whitestar who suggested "Harry with his hand around a mug of hot coca" after I complained about not knowing what to draw. ♥ The green mug is a nod to Draco, lol. I wasn't sure if people would be ok with getting a slashy card so I jused gen-ed it up a bit.

The other inserts will be posted in the next few days. Hopefully I can stop watching First Class long enough to do so. Collapse )

cards out, fics read

Christmas cards are all (except 2) mailed out! I stood in line at the post office for a good 45 minutes, mostly because people are stupid and don't realize that they need to have the package ready for mailing before they get to the post office. Trying to stuff things into a box while the line grows behind you is Not Cool. Arguing with the post office guy about your package is also Not Cool.

Also, I think I may have messed up on the art inserts for the cards. I intentionally printed one extra of each kind of art insert and I have three extra TBBT inserts and six extra SPN inserts. If you are missing an art insert, please let me know! D:

Guess what movie is playing in the background? Lololol, points go to whoever guesses X-Men: First Class. Is there an appropriate short-form for X-Men: First Class? Like HP or SPN or TBBT. I can't keep typing out the full title. And, I refuse to call Charles/Erik by its portmanteau. There will be no Cherik here.

I bawled my face off while reading this: If You Still believe by shinigami_yumi. The art for this fic is gorgeous. This fandom has such an overabundance of supremely talented artists.

Right now all I want to read in this fandom is angsty, angry hurt/comfort fics. Or porn. Like a really hot telepathic mindfuck. The kind where they're actually mentally fucking each, or rather, Charles is mentally fucking Erik. Not the bad, screwed up mindfuck type of mindfuck. If that makes sense...
