* fangirling you like whoa

Fics, fests and picspams

[001] goddesspharo does the most awesome picspams. I particularly love this one on the Iron Man 2 trailer *_*

[002] Did the Which Generic Anime Character Are You? quiz and discovered I'm an Extra. Not at all surprised TBH, since I always imagine myself hiding amidst ruins while the hero defeats the super robot several mile away XD

[003] questofdreams pointed out that Ligers (Lion/Tiger hybrids) are real which led me to the big cat hybrid page on wkipedia. My first thought? How I can't wait to see a Liger or Tiglon werecat in a slash fic *facepalms* One track mind indeed.

[004] My favorite art so far from the sn_exchange is Once Upon a Time in Konoha. Note to self: read the fics

[005] I wonder if there are any toph!fics being written for avatarbigbang? Anyway, the sign up period is almost over so if anyone thinks they'd like to give it a shot, do check it out soon!

[006] Read two fab fics yesterday. One was a Teddy/James fic by snegurochka_lee - thanks to its brilliance I think I might actually end up reading some older daily_deviant and hd_career_fair fics.

The second one was Claret, a Saiyuki AU fic where Sanzo is a priest and Goku is a vampire - considering how overused the vampire!trope is in media at the moment, questofdreams managed to get it to work wonderfully - the fic was both funny and hot :D

[007] java_mint posted samples of the $10 color commissions she's doing. Peeps who do $10 pieces usually just provide b/w sketches so I can't help but be impressed with all the work put into them.
HP - cover - Harry

Harry/Draco Art

Am in a H/D art mood so here's a bit of random lovin' XD

One of my more recent favorite H/D artists - whose art has always managed to make me stop and stare in the past year or two - is reira_21. She works with different mediums (pen, watercolor etc.) but she always manages to imbue each piece with a unique brilliance.

Some of my favorites are Ice & Fire, Too Tender For The Air, A Journey and To Separate From Life. You can check out all her past work here.

My favorite H/D artist is hands down, red_rahl. First came across her art in 2005, which was the same year I got active on lj. What started out as spazzing over her fantastic H/D chibis has morphed over the years into a love affair with her art across pretty much all fandoms.

From her unique way of drawing chibis to the characterization and storylines in her comics - everything just clicks. Today, I can't think of Harry/Draco without thinking of her art.

Another HP artist I really like but has yet to do ANY Harry/Draco is flayu on DA. She's one of the few artists over there who has no DA journal, no site or lj or blog. So all I can really do is sit back and appreciate the shiny art. Some examples of her work are Nineteen Years Later, The New Generation, LV & HP. For more pretty, check out her DA gallery

H/D art over the past year or two that caught my eye:+ one last HP art rec by tsulala (who is doing $10 sketch commissions at the moment btw!)

* lillithium is another artist whose talent just leaves me in awe - whether its work in pen, ink, watercolor or pencil, she's always got something pretty on her lj.
