[FIC] [The Avengers] Toasted Buns by [archiveofourown.org profile] copperbadge & [archiveofourown.org profile] scifigrl47 (47,044 words) (Steve/Tony)
This is an adorable story where Tony sunbathes naked, causes a scandal, and while taking cover to hide from the scandal accidentally kidnaps Steve to a tropical island. There, both he and Tony angst quietly for one another while bantering like an old married couple, cluelessly not realizing they are already LIFE PARTNERS. It was delightful to read with just the right about of pining. Funny and cute!

[ART] [Ms. Marvel/Captain Marvel] Kamala and Carol by [tumblr.com profile] villainyforbeginners
Ahh, I love these two and I am gonna love them together. Dear Marvel, are you sure Kamala can't cameo in the Captain Marvel film? ARE YOU SURE?? The colors and lighting in this are so cheerful. :D

[ART] [Captain America] Steve/Bucky by [tumblr.com profile] nutuniverse (NSFW)
Here is some kissing via very pretty line art!

[ART] [Mass Effect] Had to be, someone else might have gotten it wrong. by [tumblr.com profile] walrus-maximus (Shepard, Mordin) (SPOILERS)
This is beautiful and emotional and I can't believe Susan had me play these games. The colors are amazing, if you can see them through your eternal tears.

[ART] [Mad Max: Fury Road] Blood, seed and milk by [tumblr.com profile] llesim (Ensemble)
The style on this is gorgeous. I loved the look and feel of this film, and have been really enjoying how fanartists have been reacting to it. :D


[ART] [Once Upon a Time] Replaceable by samanthadoodles (Emma/Regina)
How you know you're a professional — you work an event for *sensationally popular author* and when they announce that their favourite OUaT ship is Captain Swan you do not leap on stage and take her out. #Adulthood. Seriously, Swan Queen 4EVA (although in all seriousness, your ship is not my ship but your ship is awesome too).

ANYWAY... This is cute piece of Swan Queen art with accompanying drabble about how to say 'I love you' when you're a repressed personality. I have a thing for fanwork about clothing, people finding alternate but meaningful ways to show their feelings and I love when Regina is shown taking care of people. So, this piece if small but quickly became very important to me.

[META] [Game of Thrones] Daenerys Targaryn: First of Her Name, Mother of Dragons, Breajer of Chains, and White Lady Jesus by [tumblr.com profile] fatpinkcast (1,125 words) (Daenerys)
I still haven't watched Game of Thrones but I do pay attention to the commentary and the fanwork that comes out of that show as it shows up on my Tumblr feed. This is particularly smart essay about a piece of white saviour imagery involving Daenerys. The use of the gifs to accompany this essay are particularly effective - gifs really are an evidentiary boon to visual critics.

[VID] [Atlantis] Always Gold by [tumblr.com profile] merlins-total-turnip-head (02:05) (Icarus/Pythagoras)
This vid is the greatest! I have watched it so many times already. It uses all the best clips of the romantic relationship that Atlantis set up between Icarus and Pythagoras as the show was ending. And, of course, it ends with their kiss. Why did this show get cancelled? Next series could have been so good with these guys in it.

[FIC] [Atlantis] Untitled by [tumblr.com profile] multifamdon (135 words) (Icarus/Pythagoras)
A very cute write up of headcanon about Icarus making an effort to understand Pythagoras' passion for geometry. This is an especially nice concept because everyone else in the show is always so quick to dismiss his interest in mathematics.

[GIFSET] [Atlantis] Icarus and Pythagoras - The Queen Must Die by [tumblr.com profile] flowerytwats (Icarus/Pythagoras)
My last Atlantis rec is just a hypnotic little gifset chronicling the times Icarus and Pythagoras hug, kiss and look at each other. And it's subtitled with my favourite quote from their relationship — 'I’m never bored in your company'.

[COSPLAY] [Big Hero 6] Baymax cosplay by [tumblr.com profile] thatgearsguy (Baymax)
I'm in awe of the work it must have taken to get this costume functional and looking so sharp. Look at the wings!

Captain Swan? NO. NO. NO! I've abandoned Once Upon a Time but I still have a lot of feelings about that.

What's with your subtitle?

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