Here is a list of fics and fanarts I created for lj-related occasions (exchanges, fests, etc.) Older HP and ASOIAF fanarts can be found on my deviantArt. Most of my ASOIAF fanarts can be found also on tumblr, including fanarts not created for lj.

There are more to come in the future! Stay tuned ;)

My gift (the gift for me?) has been posted over at sshg_giftfest and it's simply fabulous! I believe this is the first time I receive a whole comic. Leaflet. Or how you'd call it. Thank you so much, Mystery Artist (who I suspect being edolin) for Severus Snape's Advanced Chocolate Making. Also the title is delicious, I know.

Other favourites of mine in the fest, so far, have been (in random order):

- Present, Past, Potential (fic) Summary: Hermione reappears after years of absence, and Severus finds he likes her company. But there’s something not quite right.

- Embrace (craft) Summary: Item 1: Snape and Granger, in an passionate embrace. I would imagine that she overpowered him, which is why they're laying on the floor.

- Severus Snipe (fic) Summary: Rolf and Luna take Hermione snipe hunting. She catches a different sort of snipe than she intended.

- Happily Ever After the Fact (fic NC17) Summary: Hermione receives a letter from the Ministry informing her of a bit of new legislation, and attempts to deal with it in a unique way. My nod to the genre of Marriage Law fics [...]

- Mistress of the Stacks (fic NC17) Summary: An archaic danger is rampaging through the Hogwarts Library, and it is up to Headmaster Snape and Mistress Granger to solve the mystery in the stacks. But can they overcome their contentious history to fix the problem, or is history doomed to repeat itself?

I'm sorry I don't have the time to elaborate further on their merits, but I consider myself lucky enough that I got to writing down this list before forgetting completely.

There are still not one, but TWO weeks left for the sshg_giftfest awesomeness, so please go there to join the fun.

I am going to make a confession.

I am incredibly fascinated by romance novels.

Long post featuring drawings and short recsCollapse )

I have been wanting to do this since ages! It took me weeks to complete it, but here it is. A seasonal color chart according to Carole Jackson’s Color Me Beautiful.
Ever since I first read it, Color Me Beautiful has been a permanent source of inspiration for me, in my choices for clothes and make-up. Although I’m not a purist, I generally follow her advice for my season (in my case, Summer.) I tend to identify people’s seasons as soon as I see them, and it’s not usual diversion for me to mentally figure people’s seasons on the tube, for example.
In the years, there has been more sophisticated types categories, bringing them up to 12 or even 16 seasonal charts, but I’m not familiar with them, so I won’t mention them here.
Winter is by far the most widespread season. From wikipedia:

Dominant skin tones (an individual’s skin may include more than one): “Very white”, “White with delicate pink tone”, “Beige (no cheek color, may be sallow)”, “Gray-beige or brown”, “Rosy beige”, “Olive”, “Black” (blue undertone)”, “Black (sallow)”.

Although there are PoC belonging to other seasons, the wast majority of people with olive- and darker- skin tone belong to Winter, as well as almost any person with black hair and very dark eyes. They are the only season allowed to wear pure black and pure white, as well as electric blue, magenta, ecc.
Summer people show:

Dominant skin tones: “Pale beige with delicate pink cheeks”, “Pale beige with no cheek color (even sallow)”, “Rosy beige”, “Very pink”, “Gray-brown”, “Rosy brown”.

Summer and winter people should avoid yellow-based colours and make-up, as well as use silver- or white-gold based accessories. (Diamonds anyone?)
As for Autumns,

Dominant skin tones: “Creamy ivory”, “Ivory with pale golden freckles”, “Peach”, “Peach/pink (may have pink/purple knuckles)”, “Golden beige”, “Rosy cheeks (may blush easily)”, “Golden brown.”

Autumns usually have an easy time finding their clothes, since brown- and beige- based colours are very common.
Spring is the most bright and light of all Seasons, although they might have a lot of troubles finding winter clothes in their colours.

Dominant skin tones: “Ivory”, “Ivory with freckles (usually redhead)”, “Peach”, “Peach with freckles (usually golden blonde, brown)”, “Golden beige (no cheek color, needs blush)”, “dark beige, coppery”, “Golden brown.”

A teaser from today's issue of The Endling. This chapter would have made the perfect end...

[Still waiting for a proper update, I'm cross-posting these questions from my tumblr:]

So, one of the things I’m wondering about are Maggy the frog’s prophecies.

I wanted to write a sensible entry on my plans for the summer. I will write it some day. Just too tired for it now. I'll leave you with two little fanarts for Eva Green's character in 300: Rise of an Empire. Still the movie I liked best in 2014 so far.
