I decided to try out podficcing, and I thought the best way to do it would be to try recording one of the snippets I've written, as snippets are very short and I don't risk butchering someone else's work. ;)

Unlike when I speak naturally, my voice seems to go gravelly almost immediately when I start reading aloud. I tried my best to keep my voice smooth, but it gets rough in a few places. Oh well.

Anyway...

Title: A Time to Every Purpose (temporary? title)
Fandom: due South
Characters/Pairing: Fraser and Kowalski, pre-slash
Rating: PG for the thematic elements
Length: 437
Warning: Angst
Author's Note: This was written for the DS/C6D tag event being run on LJ's ds_noticeboard and DW's duesouth. wihluta had to pass on the tag so mergatrude gets me instead for the prompt "seasons." The song referenced is Turn, Turn, Turn (to Everything There is a Season) by the Byrds. You can listen to it here on Youtube. It is based off of Ecclesiastes 3:1-8. You can read the King James (Cambridge ed.) version here. I'm not 100% satisfied with this piece. All the same, I'm considering turning this into a series based on all of the "times" listed in the verses, but I'm not sure if I can come up with something for every one of them. Still, let me know if there's interest, and I'll see what I can do. This fic can also be found on my DW.

A time to kill, a time to healCollapse )

Fandom: Serenity
Song: Apocalypse, Please
Artist: Muse
Vidder: Me, How_Obscure

Definite spoilers for the movie if you still haven't seen it.



This is my third vid and my first one for Serenity. I knew I had to vid this as soon as I heard the song. The song has been edited to move the musical interlude a verse earlier. It's a little sloppy, but it was the best I could do.

It has already been flagged for WMG content or whatever so I don't know how long it will stay up. If it disappers, let me know. If you want a download link, let me know as well.

First of all, I would like to thank kalijean for the blue dragon! That was such a sweet surprise to receive the other day!

Second, I have worked a little on some due South and Firefly fics, but I haven't gotten very far. I did dream up a rather delightfully cracky idea the other night though that I may have to write. Anyway, school has been keeping me busy, but I hope to get some writing in over spring break.

Thirdly, the writer's block looked fun today so here we go: Warning: mentions of mental illness and some images related to it. Also, image heavyCollapse )

I'm now feeling unsure about posting this, but I spent way too much time on it to delete. Please, feel free to ignore my rambling, but do check out Phoebe in Wonderland if the topic isn't triggery. (It's way better than the preview makes it look.)

I recently did a charcoal drawing for the dS story Finishing Touches by demon_bride_/Tatau. The story can be found here on Wordpress, here on AO3, or here at ff.net. Go check it out! Now that the story has been unveiled by the writer, I'm sharing my artwork here.

Character: Benton Fraser
Rating: G

Picture below cutCollapse )

I must have started five different drawings trying to do this. 3/4 view is really difficult for me. I think this is only the third drawing I've ever completed with the face at that angle. It doesn't look 100% like Paul Gross by any means, but hopefully, people can see some resemblance. Also, the eyes are crooked. >_<

I hope to do many more drawings in fandom/paintings in fandom (and improve my skill). It's a lot of fun! Actually, I have a Joe Dick painting that has been nearly finished for months now and a half-finished CKR drawing that has been sitting for even longer. Hm...must work on those.

Okay, I'm still a day behind here (Oops, it's gone midnight now so make that two), but here we go.

In your own space, post a rec for at least three fanworks that you did not create. Drop a link to your post in the comments. See if you can rec fanworks that are less likely to be praised: tiny fandoms, rare pairings, fanworks other than stories, lesser known kinks or tropes. Find fanworks that have few to no comments, or creators new to a particular fandom and maybe aren't well known or appreciated. Appreciate them.

I'm sticking to vids for this set of recs.

1. The Scientist
Vidder: jcjoeyfreak Fandom: Hard Core Logo Song: The Scientist Artist: Coldplay Pairing: Joe/Billy Hosted On: Youtube Warnings: SPOILERS, violence, language, implied slash Download Link: None that I know of
I seriously love this vid so, so much. It's got a ton of views so obviously I'm not the only one. Hopefully, it's new to someone who reads this though. It tells the story of the fictitious Canadian punk rock band Hard Core Logo in reverse. And it's awesome.

2. Fractured
Vidder: FindingMyFantasy Fandom: Firefly/Serenity Song: Plugged In Artist: Evermore Character: River Tam Hosted On: Youtube Warning: skeletons Download Link: None that I know of
This is an excellent River-centric vid. The timing on it is fantastic. The lyrics, which are actually spoken word, fit so perfectly with the Alliance's goals and perspective. It's got some of the best editing of River dancing and fighting that I've ever seen.

3. The Kill
Vidder: Superkc/crickets Fandom: Hard Core Logo Song: The Kill Artist: 30 Seconds to Mars Pairing: Joe/Billy Hosted On: Imeem (I think?) embedded on an LJ page Warnings: SPOILERS, violence, implied slash Download Link: YES
Here we have another HCL vid. I have watched this soo many times. I really don't know what to say about it besides "it's excellent and you should watch it!" I'm really not very good at this reccing thing. There's just so much angst in this vid and I love it. It's got neat voice overs from the movie and a couple effects deftly applied.

I have decided to participate in this 15 day challenge as much as I can.



So...Day 1 (1 day late):

In your own space, post a rec for at least three fanworks that you have created. It can be your favorite fanworks that you've created, or fanworks you feel no one ever saw, or fanworks you say would define you as a creator.

You can find my works under the cut.Collapse )

...to say that I have indeed made a personal journal. If anyone here is interested in getting to know me and hearing about the ins and outs of my oh-so-glamorous and exciting life, head on over to howies_house and friend me. All posts there, beyond the first introductory post, will be friends-locked.
