billet collant (beurk!)

Hello!

I'm xen. Mostly, I'm a fanartist. Very occasionally, I write fics. The rest of the time, I babble.

This journal is a mirror of my fannish home on Dreamwidth. If you have a DW account, please consider following me over at [personal profile] xenakis. You can also use OpenID or poke me for an invite code, I have plenty! You are of course welcome to friend this journal instead, no need to ask or tell me why (although I would love to know, or you can just say hi!). Unless I think you're my grandma, I will probably grant you access in return. In any case, only rl related posts are locked.

The link below brings you to my masterlist of art and fics on DW (all works have links back to LJ entries). I hope you enjoy them! Comments, feedback or concrit on any of them are always welcome.

MASTERLIST OF ART AND FICS

j'ai les six notes du thème de la trame sonore pognées dans la tête depuis 3 semaines, genre

Not-Technically-Backlog-Cause-I-Made-This-Last-Weekend post #3!!!

MY PACIFIC RIM FEELS, YOU GUYS. IT'S EMBARRASSING *claws at face*

I just want Mako Mori to be President of everything ever and Raleigh Becket Mori to be the best First Husband and to knit her lots of sweaters and love her lots and lots and lots while Stacker Pentecost glares at him from beyond the Drift. IS THAT TOO MUCH TO ASK?

Gipsy Danger is beyond the bottom of the ocean, now, but Mako and Raleigh can always find her in the Drift.

les bébés des autres (surtout les autres fictifs) sont les meilleurs

Backlog post #2!!!

This, it will come to no surprise, is all Plor's fault.

These doodles mark the moment where the chatlogs between [personal profile] toomuchplor and I went from "Eames is hilariously pregnant!" to "LET'S GIVE ARTHUR AND EAMES ONE BAJILLION BABIES!!!"

Also curtesy of the chatlogs, we remembered that this entire series was briefly going to be called Every Sperm is Sacred. Because obviously.

Where Otis is tiny, Luke is the prettiest God of Thunder, tired George is tired and Arthur has Dad Shoulders.

dans mes rêves

Backlog post #1!!!

I did this piece back in March, because three years into this fandom, I am still waiting for the epic fic where Dream goes all "WTF is this, get off my lawn" at the PASIV users stomping all over the Dreaming. And also because Eames is totally Desire, let's be real. (And why do you think Arthur uses all that hair gel? Because otherwise *point at icon*)



Under Again
Also on AO3 (bigger resolution) and tumblr

When the PASIV program had started sending trigger-happy soldiers down into the Dreaming, Morpheus had had no choice but to take the matter into his own hands. Desire -bored and precariously back into the Dream King's good graces- had offered to tag along.

dépoussiérage

HI DREAMWIDTH HIIIIII!!!!!

Well, I'm not dead, but it appears I have unknowingly moved to where all the cool kids are these days...

So, if you want a slightly less intermitent update on my life and my fannish ramblings and offerings, I can be found here [twitter.com profile] xenophonique and here [tumblr.com profile] xenophonique and here [archiveofourown.org profile] xenakis.

Because I'm a completist, though, I'm about to spam you with the few things I've managed to produce but forgot to post here since... Yuletide reveal, dear God D:

I promise I'll do better from now on, mostly because I have recently smashed ridiculously hard into a brick wall of Pacific Rim/Mako Mori feels, and I expect many a fanart bunny to hit me in the near future, mostly featuring Raleigh Becket as the best golden retriever puppy in the world. *FLAILS*

réaction en différé

ahjgsdajsdgfdf I've just realized that apparently, in the utter madness that are the Holidays, I've dreamt that I posted this entry, but... didn't? So to remedy this at once:

A YULETIDE STORY FOR ME!!!!

Guys, guys, guys!!! Look what I got!!!!

Throw A Stone to Break Some Glass (1460 words) by Anonymous
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: A Day Made of Glass (Commercial)
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Dan, Jennifer
Summary: Sometimes the future is not all it seems to be. A sort of post-apocalyptic fic based on the commercial, A Day Made of Glass. The title is a twist on the saying, "People in glass houses should not throw stones."


It's a wonderfully creepy look at what Jennifer goes through throughout the commercials. It raises really brilliant questions about what it means when computers designed to make your life easier starts making the decisions for you. And what happens when some people starts realizing something's wrong.

It made my Yuletide morning, and you should all read it and tell my author how awesome they are! I can't wait to know who wrote it!!!


As for my own story, I'm not giving you guys any clues this year, it's just so ridiculously obvious :P Guess away!

mieux vaut tard, etc, etc, etc

In honour of BBC Merlin ending (and to give [personal profile] yue_ix a heart attack from the surprise of me posting this after *counts* three years of it sitting there as a WIP) I present to you my (most probably) very last piece of Merlin fanart!

This is inspired by [personal profile] happydork's wonderful OT4 LeGuin fusion fic An Ever-Fixed Mark, which I will assume everyone has read (and if you haven't, RUN, don't walk!!!). This is my vision of Camelot's ruling sedoretu, as well as my personal head-canon of how Merlin should have ended. I hope you enjoy it!

le douze du douze du douze, c'est assez exceptionnel pour mériter un billet, non?

Dearest [personal profile] toomuchplor,

So I tried mailing you these for you birthday, but apparently Poste Canada cannot magically ship photoshopped covers of fictional recordings of fictional characters from alternate universes of works of fiction across the country. Which I frankly think is just rude.

So instead these humble offerings shall forever remain on our fictional bookshelves, unattainable and silent, and yet proof that somewhere out there, Arthur and Eames are making music like classically-trained badasses, falling in love all over the Steinway and taking us along for the ride.


Happiest numerically improbable birthday, Plorface.

<3 <3 <3 <3

avec les doigts

Yes, it's me again, and the terribleness is only escalating.

Behold:

a guy like you (should wear a warning) (4505 words) by faviconxenakis, favicontoomuchplor
Fandom: Inception (2010)
Rating: Explicit
Relationships: Arthur/Eames (Inception)
Summary: In which Eames’ excuse for getting naked in front of Arthur is even more filmy and transparent than his panties — and that’s saying something.

So, in a fit of dementia, [personal profile] toomuchplor and I decided that it would be really awesome to write/draw a story as a sort of mixed media round-robin. She pointed me to the Draw Something app for iPhone, which is why the beggining of this masterpiece looks like this:



I'm... not actually going to repost the rest of the "art" I contributed, BECAUSE OF OBVIOUS REASONS. You can see/read the rest of this shameful adventure at the link above or at Plor's journal here.

UUURG. I SWEAR AT SOME POINT I WILL STOP USING MY (increasingly dubious) ART-FU FOR EVIL.

avouez que vous vous êtes ennuyés de moi

What better way to relearn how to post than by spamming all of you with terribleness?


So I was at the library, lazily browsing the music shelves, when my eyes caught the most magnificent example of late 1990s CD cover fashion:



OH GLORIOUSNESS. The upturned jaws, the pensive looks, the terrible clothes, the random Hourglass of Symbolism, THE MOTHERFUCKING ROSE OF AUSTRIAN ANGST AND ROMANTICISM.

And then, and then- I had to- I just had to-

I'm not sorry.
