[COSPLAY] [Star Wars: The Force Awakens] Edwardian Kylo Ren by [tumblr.com profile] kylorenjyn
For whatever reason, I’ve been thinking of Kylo Ren’s costume a lot recently. While the Knights Templar references are obvious, I had no clue there were some similar elements in Edwardian women’s fashion. While I doubt they were purposeful, they’re still present, and kylorenjyn’s Edwardian Kylo Ren is not only cleverly conceived but also expertly executed.


[ART] [Sherlock Holmes] Untitled by [twitter.com profile] thedrawingduke (Holmes & Watson)
This drawing of Dev Patel as Sherlock Holmes and Riz Ahmed as John Watson is almost everything I have ever wanted from this canon.

[ART] [Critical Role] Mr. Stabby by [tumblr.com profile] raphael2054 (Vax)
Another in this artist's "Mr. Men/Little Miss" Critical Role series, this one featuring Vax. If you think I'm going to share all of these, you are absolutely correct.


[FIC] [Yuri!!! On Ice] fur-real by [archiveofourown.org profile] sarahyyy (Otabek/Yuri) (2688 words)
Otabek makes a friend in Yuri, but he has no idea how to continue the friendship so he pretends to have a cat. Spoiler: it's not his cat. This was so charming and 100% the kind of awkward situation you'd end up in when completely twitterpated by Yuri Plisetsky.

[FIC] [Mass Effect] Not all it's cracked up to be by [archiveofourown.org profile] skogr (EDI/Joker, Shepard/Garrus) (6860 words)
I've just started Mass Effect 2 and I forgot how much I loved Joker and EDI and their initially antagonistic relationship. Little did I know I would eventually starting shipping this hardcore, like, even harder than Shepard and Garrus (and I shipped them VERY HARD; I get an eye twitch when I hear the word "calibrations" now). This fic is super great, because it has awkward porn sharing, the human obsession with sex confusing the hell out of EDI and making her have a slight existential crisis, Joker trying to figure out who Garrus is boning (he's Very Interested), and angst about the past. It's super adorable and delightful.

Oh I have something to add this time! One of the Spring Equinox vids:

[VID] [Vorkosigan saga] Miles to go".
Summary: There once was a man who dreamt of the stars...

This is a character study, and all the more awesome for no actual visual source.

This is 100% relevant to Ira's interests! I guess I should read these books so I can enjoy all the fanwork for them. XD
