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 ;)

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.

I'm so bad at keeping updates on the various social networks...

So, on the Endling's front: today Issue 29/2.09 was published. I'm quite pleased with how this turned out, so please have a few samples:

You can read the whole issue on Thrillbent here.

On a separate note, happy birthday dear enname! *throws chocolate*

I managed to read the new preview chapter for The Winds of Winter between yesterday night and this morning.

Cut for TWoW spoilersCollapse )

I'm also wondering whether to go to the OUAT Xivents convention in Versailles. I mean, it could be a lifetime occasion to meet Emilie de Ravin and Lana Parrilla, but on the other hand it's very expensive (the most economic pass at this point costs 200€, and that's not counting flight to France, transports Paris-Versailles, hotels and food), and I would be alone in travelling. Also, I'd love to find myself among Dearies, Rumbellers and Evil Regals, but I really don't care about CSers (sorry!) What do you suggest?

Yesterday afternoon I found the time for another little Rumbelle fanart... To celebrate (?) the fact that this week I finished reading Bed of Thorns and now my life is empty and meaningless and that there’s only one week till Season 3b. An illustration from chapter 56 of A Bed of Thorns, The Iron Pot. Rumplestiltskin kisses Belle’s hair because he cannot touch her. Sigh. I even used a proper paper this time.

(the whole photoset can be found on tumblr here)

I've now started other Rumbelle fics... It is such a new world for me, and I have some suggestions and recs to look at, but as I'm generally picky, I reject many fics on summary alone (no extreme AU, no "Belle is working as a nanotechnology scientist and Mr Gold is her boss", etc etc), so I haven't found exacly that many fics to download. I've immensely enjoyed Luthien's fics - especially the Plain Jane (awwwd'oh!) and Awakening series. To feed my Beauty-and-the-Beast hunger, I'm also reading the original, 100+ pages long tale by Gabrielle de Villeneuve, and I went to watch the French movie. SOOOOO BAD. This is what I wrote on tumblr about it: (shameless copy & paste)

La Belle et La Bete reviewCollapse )

Last Thursday chapter 25/2.05 of The Endling went online... It is one of my very favourite chapters. Here, have some pages:

And now good night ;)
