I am bouncing and doing a happy dance!

[community profile] nightonficmountain, a Midsummer small fandom fic exchange, has just gone live, and I have been lucky to receive THREE gifts. That's right!

Three lovely, amazing presents, all of them for the Master and Commander aka Aubrey-Maturin fandom. (I have guessed that Master & Commander would be the fandom I'd get my present for, but THREE presents? O frabjous day!) One art and two fics!

The artwork is MARVELLOUS, minimalist pen-and-link with delicious linework, Jack, Stephen, a hammock, and a SLOTH. A Slothful Interlude with napping!

The fics are WONDERFUL.

There is Brother, Soul, Joy, a truly subtle SOUL BOND fic with pitch perfect prose and characterisation, every inch the Aubrey-Maturin but with even more connection and friendship and love. The writing is musical and exquisite. I am enamored.

There is On the Possibilities of Sail, which is a fantastic AU with adventure and SEA MONSTERS. With actual serpents, and a happy ending, and puns. It is so deliciously dense with maritime adventure information and sailing facts seamlessly woven in the fantasy framework! I am in love.

If you like AGE OF SAIL, ADVENTURE, and SLOTHS, come look at these lovely gifts and shower them with kudos! Because they are gorgeous.

Fanart, fanworks exchange, and fic

You know, I deleted my tumblr for fanart hosting on May 29, and wow, all the links still work. How much server space does tumblr have? When I deleted, they said "it's gone"; when is it gone?

In the meantime, in case you still want to take a look at my fanart (LEGO vignettes, mini-installations built with minifigs & blocks), here they all are, in their humorous glory, still:

Harry Potter (Thestrals, pubs and dragons)
Generation Kill (Brad & Nate on the beach)
The Eagle (adventures, dinosaurs, modern & sci-fi AUs)

In other news, today is the day [community profile] nightonficmountain should go live! I am incredibly excited, anxious about what my recipient thinks of my story, and on the edge of my seat about what I'll get. Actually, probability analysis says I'll get a Master and Commander story. Which is an awesome gift to get!

I keep thinking about Not Prime Time Exchange ([community profile] npt_admin), there are some prompts I could, in theory, write treats for, but they are for fandoms I have burnt out on (like The Man from UNCLE; I am, in fact, quite well-versed in 20th century politics and spy tradecraft and there are still plenty of stories I could write, stories that haven't been written for this fandom, I just... don't wanna?) or have a backlog of unwritten fics and misplaced guilt (Generation Kill OMG), or haven't written anything for, yet (a lot of undisclosed options, okay). So, IDEK. Perhaps when I have a bit more free time in a while, the deadline for Prime Time Madness is still ahead of us.

Also, there's [community profile] sutcliff_space. I have put together music and art and quotes for future rounds; it's basically an all-year-open prompt cornucopia. But it's no fun alone! :)

Succeeded in completing and uploading my [community profile] nightonficmountain assignment. (I still have a lot of problems actually uploading/posting the work, but that is just me. I will figure it out eventually.)

This is terribly exciting and very new for me, I went for styles/choices/fandoms I hadn't before, did plenty of research, and I am honestly very anxious whether my recipient will like it. Also I am really curious about what I'll get. I am so out of habit with mystery exchanges, this is positively overwhelming.

No further writing goals set yet. However, I encourage myself, along with everyone else, to go over to [community profile] sutcliff_space and write for the prompts! in any Sutcliff fandom! Remember, no Sutcliff Swap this year! Our fun is strictly DIY!

I do have tentative plans to pick up some old story ideas for GK or HP, or maybe I will try something new.

In other news, I still enjoy reading Batman/Superman fics. They have secret identity trope like you wouldn't believe! It's like a candy store!

REC POST: NBC Hannibal (Memory Loss)

Kō no mono, or, in lieu of actual seasonal pickled vegetables, have a selection of fics about amnesia and mystery memory loss.

VID:

Ghosts / Falling by yotb0tka

FIC:

See by tangerine (Hannibal loses his memory while he's locked in the BSHCI. One of the orderlies lost his temper and bashed his skull, and it was just Hannibal's luck that it wiped his memory clean. However, nobody knows just how clueless Hannibal is about his whole life. Hannibal isn't going to let them know.)
A Room Without Doors by cartouche (Hannibal gets amnesia and doesn't remember all of his subsequent murders and cannibalisations.)
Uncharted Sea by louise_lux (After the fall. Hannibal finally wakes from his injuries, and it becomes clear that he remembers nothing.)
Waiting For Winter by weconqueratdawn (Hannibal wakes up in Will's cabin, still in recovery after the fall and with little memory of what came after. They both wait - Will for Hannibal to be well enough to leave, and Hannibal for Will to make choices.)
and the stars are exploding in your eyes by hito (Hannibal probably isn't the person you want helping you out when you've got amnesia. )
prelude and fugue by stelladown (It starts with an impromptu visit to Will's home in the middle of the night, followed by dinner for two with a side course of twilight anesthesia, and ends with a kiss (and a letter folded on a pile of laundry.)
The Sheep in Wolf's Clothing by 50mg (When they fall, Hannibal and Will are wrapped around one another. When Hannibal surfaces he is alone.)

Hannibal: Fics: I (under 5k), II (under 10k), III (under 20k), IV (killer AUs), V (under 20k), VI (supernatural AUs), VII (overview), VIII (under 25k), IX (short variations s1-s3), X (short variations post-s3), XI (science fiction double feature); Vids: Smooth Mix, Jolly Mix, Mesmerizing Mix, Loose Mix, Meditative Mix, Gourmet Mix, Someone Help Will Graham Mix, Abigail Hobbs Mix, Alana Bloom Mix, Matthew Brown Mix, Devil & Control Mix, See & Evolve Mix, Escalating Mix, Psychoanalyzing & Becoming Mix, Will's Nightmares Mix, Frederick Chilton Mix, Bedelia DuMaurier Mix, Saucy Mix, Ready or Not Mix, Slow & Personal Mix

Dedicated to [personal profile] vaysh11 - it's been a while since I put together a Steve/Bucky vid rec list. This is a sequence of character fanvids that I like a lot, they're quite splendid (though not the most widely watched in fandom, I reckon). This is all I love about Captain America & Winter Soldier in 25 vids: the story I came and stayed for, the story that, objectively, MCU chose not to tell anymore. And even though the narrative dissappointingly crumbled and faded through a multitude of studio choices, the vids are there, with the pace and beauty, depth and insight that these characters deserve.
