It's been over a year since I joined livejournal, and I think it's time to write a list of my fics and fanarts created for lj-related occasions (exchanges, fests, etc.)

HP and Snape fanworksCollapse )

ASOIAF fanworksCollapse )***

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

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.

(Reposting from tumblr, and cut for Winds of Winter spoilers. A probably improbable theory:)

Tyrion, Richard III and MyrcellaCollapse )

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 ;)

I'm waiting for my writer to send the latest instruction and corrections, so I thought I could use this time to share with you my last doodle:
i coloured it on Sunday afternoon. Gosh, I hadn't used pastels in such a long time (five years and more), and yet they are one of my favourite mediums. Alas, the scanner did a poor job with it; the original is much softer. Anyway, the complete photoset (including the pencil sketch) can be found on tumblr here.

I also forgot to link the latest Endling chapter, 24 (or 2.04). It features one of my favourite sequences (the one below), and it leads to one of my very favourite chapters, #25.

In the meantime, I reached chapter 107 of A Bed of Thorns (out of 113). It is without questions the most engrossing fanfiction I've read in a long time. I'm considering the hypothesis of drawing something (also to celebrate the re-start of OUAT in two weeks.)

Happy Valentine’s Day! <3

I planned this fanart since December… Knowing I wouldn’t have time to make as many as I wished, I threw in there everything I wanted: the cup, the rose and the sofa. Was thorn between making it playful or seductive, and this is the compromise that came out. The first watercolour I’ve done in six months!

On an unrelated note, The Endling 23/2-03 was published yesterday on Thrillbent.

Here have some angst from a chapter devoted mainly to action.

The Endling Issue 23/2.03 is readable online on Thrillbent:

Sorry, last time I tried to embed the new chapter of The Endling, but it wasn't working, so it's probably safer to post it just as a link:

Now it should work, I hope.

For those who like podcast, a long time fan of The Endling spoke about it in his latest podcast.


On completely unrelated news, I put aside North and South to start reading a Rumbelle epic, Bed of Thorns by Nym.Bed of Thorns and the good times of epicsCollapse )

North and SouthCollapse )

I still haven't decided what to draw for my Valentine Rumbelle fanart... I'd like to include the sofa and the chipped cup, but still haven't completely figured how to place Rumplestiltskin and Belle on the sofa. Or rather I had half a dozen ideas, some more ironical, some more innuendo-ish, and now I'd like to draw them all. As if I had the time *sigh*

Since I'm so late with everything, I hope you won't mind if I acknowledge only now my contribution for the one and only hoggywartyxmas, The Big Great Hogwarts Quiz! which I drew for the lovely purplefluffycat. Many thanks to sigune for being my stalwart beta.

I also know that dysfuncentine is going to start again soon - I haven't read anything from last year's fest (sob), but who knows... Still a brilliant fest.

Strange that I come back to this almost forgotten blog first to share two shocking news, and only in a second moment to talk about myself.

The first is the shocking news of the death of Philip Seymour Hoffman. I mean. I can't believe it. Overdose?

The second news I want to share is far less shocking, but still perplexing:

JK Rowling says Hermione should have married Harry Potter, not Ron

Well, everybody in the world of fandom knows that Hermione and Ron were a bad match to each other after GoF. I mean, I found them sweet in GoF, but then I discovered SS/HG, and never believed in Ron/Hermione after that.

In any case, I’m amazed by how many things JKR realised AFTER writing the books.

On more lively news, let me share some little doodles I made this week:

I will colour Jasmine as soon as I find the time.

This week also The Endling started posting again:

Anyway I am a bit depressed. I should write more often. I re-fell in love with OUAT during Christmas and I'm planning a Rumbelle fanart for Valentine's Day.
Love you all, going to dinner!
