"In a text post, list ten fics that have stayed with you in some way. Don’t take but a few minutes, and don’t think too hard — they don’t have to be the “right” works, or even all the same pairing or fandom, just the fics that have touched you or that stuck with you somehow."

From tumblr. Chosen by going through my bookmarks and seeing which ones jumped out at me. A lot of these are VERY OLD since I have gotten harder to wow as I've read more fic. Sixteen not ten because don't make me chooooose. And yes there is a suprsing amount of Stargate considering I don't actually like the canon, when I first got into fic that was what I encountered the most of and the fandom produced a wide range of interesting stuff. (Also lots of robots which should not be surprising at all)

Feeling tired and grumpy with the after effects of what I think was very mild food poisoning. And it turns out I haven't done one of these since April!

My new fannish infatuation is Welcome to Night Vale, and I actually got like 100 tumblr notes on my comic, which is about 95 more than I usually get (and about 95 more than I got on DeviantArt, it's not a big fandom over there I guess) The Dragon Age reverse bang comes out in a week, I'm quite proud of my art and the story I've seen is lots of fun, but you'll have to wait for that :)

Two original pics I'm especially happy with:

Thanks to everyone who gave me prompts, they were a nice mix of things to draw.

I also drew some fanart for the vampire game I'm working on:

I did a video post about being a queer, disabled, feminist writer

Errors vs. Bugs and the End of Stupidity has a really nice metaphor about errors vs bugs when it comes to mistaking mistakes. (Not a fan of the schizophrenia metaphor but never mind)

Woo, sunbreaksdown is writing Lin/Korra! She's one of my favourite femslash writers. And yes, this pairing should hit all my squicks I DON'T UNDERSTAND EITHER.

Also I have a random theory that Lin's Zuko! He had a brief drunken tryst with Toph when he and Mai were having a fight or something, they both agreed it was a terrible idea but she kept the kid, and then had to keep it a secret to stop Lin being drawn into Fire Nation royal succession shenanigans.

Extra theory just for Lizbee: And then Azula moved to the Fire Nation to help raise Lin.

(n.b This theory spoils nothing and has no real basis in canon. I can't see the show having drunken trysts, for a start, so Mai would have to, like, die in childbirth to give Zuko time to get over her, secretly marry Toph and then die himself or something. I also like the idea that Toph went "Right! I want a baby. Aang, you're super powerful, let's have a super earthbending baby!" But then Katara nixed the idea so she moved on)

I decided to just write without stressing about quality or whatever too much, and it's like a dam broke in my head. It seems to have stopped for the moment, but I went through my WiP folder and have a couple more fics I want to fix up. Then we'll see what happens.

Also: boy do I enjoy writing about artificial intelligence! I think I might try to come up with another original story, playing with Mass Effect fic has been fun but fanfic has it's limits. Plus I'm getting increasingly frustrated with the way that every other person writing about EDI seems to see her as a compliant sexbot to heal the pain of some woobie (usually Joker) Of course, fandom may not read my stories for the scifi, but at least the stories get read.

Mass Effect, Dragon Age, Avatar the Last Airbender/Legend of Korra )

First: The next Avatar the Last Airbender night is cancelled, due to Swancon. So the next actual night will be the 18th of April.

Second: I saw the first two episodes of Legend of Korra and they are brilliant.

That is all.

Last night, as the result of a "fic you would never write" meme, [personal profile] lizbee wrote me the perfect highschool AU for Avatar: the Lat Airbender. It's femslash! Set in Australia! And doesn't ignore the character's canon disabilities! And is also very funny and in character and sweet. Core Skills. (EDIT: Now with a working link!)

Anyway, after thinking about it and various other stories about adolescent characters, I went to sleep and had a dream which at the time I was convinced was based on some YA book I'd read years ago but on waking I think I invented. I'd be curious to know if anyone recognises any part of it though.

Ug. I have a cold. Lying around on the couch feeling like crap is frustrating enough without a runny nose and a sore throat to go with it. Anyway, to fill in the time…art post!

Too sleepy for substantive posts/comments today.

So! The [community profile] white_lotus exchange is over and I can reveal that I was assigned [personal profile] pippin! It was SO HARD not letting her know, and I tried to make the picture a bit less generally sqbr-ish than my yuletart one by more closely emulating the Avatar style.

I also recently got into the novelty value of drawing adult Homestuck characters. For some reason the canon ancestors have yet to inspire completed art, though.

My white Lotus fic, huzzah! Beloved Ice, a cute little Zuko/Mai/Katara fic. Zuko/Mai and femslash, yay! Plus general happy friendshippiness ^_^

Around Us, a really good general Avatar fanvid and just the burst of happy I needed.

Why you should all watch Press Gang. I remember season 3 being really annoying so stopped my rewatch in Season 2, but maybe I should give it a shot.

First off: Look what [personal profile] havocthecat sent me!

(Me holding an awesome little blue bag and wearing a cool little pendant)
When it arrived I spent a while looking at the return address thinking "Who on earth is *insert havocthecat's real name* and why are they sending me things from the US?" :)

Why I Like Fullmetal Alchemist, by Stultiloquentia and RHB is a fun picspam explaining why you should all check out "Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood" if you haven't already.

[ profile] halfamoon is being it's usual great celebrating-of-female-characters self.

[community profile] white_lotus's gift exchange is producing some great Avatar the Last Airbender fanworks.

Avatar: Azula colour meme on tumblr

Since Artician was an irritating spoon-suck(*), I have combined my desire to have an alternative venue to DeviantArt with a vague thought I had about making a tumblr for my fanart. Thus! alias-sqbr@tumblr. No idea if I'll get bored of it or if anyone will bother subscribing etc but there you are. (nb this is separate to sqbr @ tumblr, which is pretty much just for very occasionally reblogging things)

(*)Though they have nice hotlinkable large preview images that I may use from time to time on places like AO3
alias_sqbr: Zuko with a fish on his head (avatar)
Most of these don't have transcripts, sorry.

Jane Austen's Fight Club A fake trailer for a remake of "Fight Club" to being about regency women trying to find some purpose in their disaffected socially bound lives. Works surprisingly well while still just as silly as you'd expect.

Aang is the Best Guide EVER My favourite piece of "Legend of Korra" fanart so far.

And now some Inceptiony stuff. I thought Inception would be the kind of film noone would make fluffy fanworks about but it turns out I was utterly wrong. Alas for me(*) most of it seems to be porn, which may indicate that people's inspiration is the prettiness of the cast rather than the cleverness of the ideas...

Fanart by me: Arthur and his hair Very silly, but the image refused to go away. Has a description. Somewhat inspired by...

PRETTY PRETTY INCEPTION Cracky and spoilery but fun fancomic. (I'm never sure how I feel about the gender issues around the "Lol men playing at being princesses" thing, but that's not all there is to the joke here)

Dissecting 'Inception': Six Interpretations and Five Plot Holes Sensible text rather than silly pictures. I like that "things are exactly as stated in the film" is considered the least plausible interpretation :)

(*)Porn can explore clever ideas perfectly well, but it's not really my thing, and in particular I think the emotional and physical understatedness of the film is one of the things I liked and so I find it jarring when it's contradicted by fic. Also there's too much Arthur/Eames and not enough Arthur/Ariadne and Cobb/Saito

You guys all know there's a new season of "Avatar the Last Airbender" called The Legend of Korra starting next year? Yes? No? I'm quite excited. So excited I drew some fanart!

ATLA: Older Mai and Katara
by ~sqbr

The show is set 70 years in the future, and I realised that means lots of positive older ladies, huzzah! (That's the one thing I really would have liked more of in the original show) Assuming they're not all dead :/
