OMG, A REAL LIFE AANG!! Talk about an awesome Avatar audition! So we don't get to see his acting, but everything else is just perfect, wow.
 The latest Head Trip Comic pays homage to Battle Star Galactica a bit :)
 anenko pointed out rainscene, an awesome picspam community for far east asian dramas and movies :3
 maderr did a merman!drabble ♥ Except instead of the fish tail we have tentacles (ala Ursula) And the main character happens to be a professor of sorts. Oh the research possibilities :F
Yes, I think tentacles are now a bulletproof kink for me, along with polyamorous relationships >_>
 thebooksmugglers.com has giveaways and reviews of books in fantasy, sci-fi along with other fandom stuff. I have to admit though, the one LOST picspam on the main page makes me yell "CUT PLZ" even though they're not on livejournal *headdesk*
Ended up creating a syndicated feed for them to follow via the flist (my media filter): book_smugglers
Though I keep forgetting where the syndication page is on LJ *headdesk*
 Spiffy links related to books/publishing:
- charlesatan is an lj with links to various authors, guides, columns etc. Am now tracking new entries XD
- If you're interested in creating ebooks here's a post with focus on their design and format
- Ghost Writing - a piece by Scott Westerfield.
Now I'll wonder if a book was written by the author or by a stand-in. I have such mixed thoughts about the idea and I can't help feeling a bit betrayed that there might be an author I adore whose stories weren't actually written by them >_>
- telophase has manga analysis, essays with lots of pics etc. Check out the list here for links of interest :)
- The post here by mbeasi discusses the difference between manga and manhwa along with a call for manhwa recs
