I swear I have more fannish interests than Marvel. I swear! Just not, you know, right this second.

[VID] [Captain America: The Winter Solider] we go hard by voordeel (1:31) (Bucky/Steve)
I've watched this a ridiculous number of times because I continue to love explicit brutality of Bucky Barnes and the implicit brutality of Steve Rogers, and how The Winter Soldier and his aggressive, unstoppable death march underlines the ways in which both of them navigated living with the ability to do grievous harm to others and what happens when the ability to make a choice is taken away. The beats here are perfect, and I really like the song and the way the clips are used to call back to who Steve and Bucky were before all the violence and war. Really well done!

[META] [Captain America] Headcanon: Bucky's Back Pay (w bonus updates on Cap's back pay) by [tumblr.com profile] peskyredhead
This type of fannish nerdery is my FAVORITE. Since I know zilch about economics, lots of the specific numbers go ~whoosh~ over my head but it's fascinating to see how it might work out.

[GIFSET] [Captain America: The Winter Soldier/The Incredibles] This is how I imagine Steve and Sam in 10 years by [tumblr.com profile] commandersass (Steve/Sam)
I have never felt so connected to a remixed gifset in my life.

[VID] [Captain America: The Winter Soldier] Hurricane by [tumblr.com profile] saezutte (3:03) (Steve/Bucky)
I was feeling better, actually! I was coming out of the complete funk of "Bucky Barnes is a tragedy and I can't escape", and then I watched this vid, because I hate myself. For an upbeat-sounding song, this vid is definitely ready to sock you directly in the soul, especially during the bridge. THIS SONG IS FULL OF TRICKERY and this fandom is full of pain and suffering.

[ART] [Captain America: The Winter Soldier/Lilo & Stitch] "This is your badness level… its extremely high for someone your size…" by [tumblr.com profile] butterpaint (Steve & Bucky)

[ART] [Marvel] Heeey Ms. Carter! by [tumblr.com profile] schwarzbrot (Peggy)
The color meme that's been going around has been so good for me. The color and movement on this piece are awesome! I hereby request that this meme go around again after the first episode of Agent Carter has aired. PLEASE??

[ART] [Captain America: The Winter Soldier] Bucky Barnes by [tumblr.com profile] beefbasket
The colors and perspective on this are gorgeous. The metal of Bucky's arm is especially fantastic.

So of course US Independence Day was this past weekend. I sat on my couch and didn't go outside, but there were so many cute pieces of themed art posted for Steve's birthday!

[ART] [Captain America: The Winter Soldier] HAPPY BIRTHDAY STEVE ROGERS and America I guess by [tumblr.com profile] mechinaries (Sam, Steve, Bucky, Natasha)
The animation and small details take an amazing piece of art and really ramp it up. Bucky's headband! Natasha's glowing star headband (I HAD ONE OF THESE). Bucky and Sam with their own sparklers. Steve in a Captain America t-shirt. ♥

[ART] [Captain America: The Winter Soldier] Birthday Party by [tumblr.com profile] kehinki (Ensemble)
THE PARTY HATS. Tony's present! Bucky consuming the cake like a toddler. I am also 100% sure Chris Evans is able to make this exact expression. I AM PRETTY SURE I'VE SEEN IT SOMEWHERE.

[ART] [Captain America: The Winter Soldier] happy birthday grandpa rogers! by [tumblr.com profile] illustratedkate (Sam, Bucky, Natasha, Steve)
I'm having BFFs feelings. ;__;

[VID] [Firefly] Legend of a Cowgirl by [livejournal.com profile] shati(02:50) (Zoe Washburne)
This vid makes me happy everytime I see it, even though it includes the sad Washburne times of "Serenity". There's just nothing like mixing Zoe Washburne's confidence with a kickass country song. Watch it on repeat and remember how great Zoe is!

[VID] [Orphan Black] Close to Home by [personal profile] usuallyhats (03:55) (Full cast)
I put this vid on my playlist for Wiscon's vidparty this year along with "Legend of a Cowgirl", but I absolutely have to rec it again now that we have a fanworks section here at Lady Business. This vid gives something new up each time I watch it. On my first watch its family theme made a big impression on me, then I saw how much it was about a need for control and now I'm kind of fixated on how its editing matches up scenes for all the different clones. I don't want to be a greedy fan, but I would love it if [personal profile] usuallyhats made another vid when the dust of series two has settled.

[ART] [Orphan Black/Dr Who] Untitled by [tumblr.com profile] rizplease (Cosima, The Doctor)
I am very on board with all the Who crossovers as long as Moffat isn't involved :P Seriously though, this is a fab drawing of Cosima that I think captures exactly how she'd feel is the Doctor came calling — there's a little trepidation, a little wonder.

[GIFSET] [The Avengers/Hawkeye] Hawkeye #1 by [tumblr.com profile] fluffalos (Hawkeye)
Fluffalos has mixed footage of Jeremy Renner playing Hawkeye with text from "My Life as a Weapon" into a comic panel gifset! I love the creativity of animating a static comic story by using gifs, framing gif panes as comic book panels and mixing the two different Hawkeye stories into one. Very smart.

[ART] [Once Upon a Time] Untitled by [tumblr.com profile] paradoxalpoised (Regina/Ruby)
I had no idea there was a Ruby Queen following, but looks like they're making some adorable fanwork. I like Regina's costuming in both realms and I love that her classic belted jacket makes an appearance here. And Ruby has red items on, which is always appropriate, along with a big hoodie - I'm a huge fan of Ruby's sloppy style moments.

[ART] [Disney queens] Maleficent and Evil Queen by VVernacatola (Maleficent, Evil Queen)
And speaking of evil queens, here are two gorgeous pieces of fanart for Disney queens. I'm terrible at describing art but I love the style of these pieces. The Evil Queen is my favourite because the colouring is so warm and her pose makes her look both happy and empowered.

[ART] [Merlin] Merlin Graphic Battle, Round Two: two piece, light vs dark by [tumblr.com profile] cagedcrowley (Morganna, Aithusa)

And if you need me before our next installment I'll just be over here having some emotions about a lady and her dragon.

What's with your subtitle?

It's a riff off an extremely obscure meme only Tom Hardy and Myspace fans will appreciate.
