[ART] [The Legend of Zelda] Studio Ghibli’s The Legend of Zelda by Matt Vince (Ganondorf, Link, Zelda)
These posters are for a hypothetical Studio Ghibli produced adaptation of The Legend of Zelda, and they are stunners. Ganondorf is my favorite.

[ART] [The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time] ”Iron Knuckle Nabooru” by Gabriela-Birchal (Nabooru)
Out of the body horror that is the brainwashed Nabooru as Iron Knuckle comes this wonderful piece, featuring Nabooru breaking out of the armor. I love the way the armor is done and how FURIOUS Nabooru rightfully is.

[FIC] [Star Wars] ”Hope’s Worth is Written with a Golden Quill” by [archiveofourown.org profile] akathecentimetre (10,024) (Obi-Wan Kenobi, hint of Obi-Wan Kenobi/Qui-Gon Jinn)
I watched a fanedit of the Star Wars prequels to avoid watching them in full (total failure: I super want to rewatch the prequels now), and I never realized the depth of my Obi-Wan Kenobi feelings. His life is just so terrible and THEN he has to spend two decades on Tatooine! So this fic, wherein Obi-Wan rediscovers his purpose during his first year of exile, was really perfect for me.


[ART] [Star Wars: The Force Awakens] "New Trio" by [tumblr.com profile] oseoro (Rey, Finn, Poe)
Despite having come to Star Wars as a grown woman, I am nonetheless finding myself devoured by Star Wars feels. So look at this gorgeous art of the new trio looking awesome!


[ART] [Final Fantasy X] inktober Day7 by Robbertopoli (Lulu)
Just a lovely portrait of Lulu with great use of negative space. It's just a bust but the linework makes it feel dynamic and very lively. The inks are really well done.

[ART] [The Last Unicorn] No unicorn was ever born who could regret by [tumblr.com profile] m-oshun (The Last Unicorn, Prince Lir, Amalthea)
Last Unicorn fanart is entirely too rare, and this is a lovely example. I love the composition and use of negative space (again!), and for some reason I just can't stop looking at how the neckline of Amalthea's dress cuts straight across her body. It's just a great piece.

[ART] [Ace Attorney] Mystic Maya, Mystic Mia, and Mystic Pearl by obsessedkitten (Maya, Mia, Pearl)
Absolutely haunting portraits of the Fey women. I love the use of light and shadow, and especially the glow of Pearl's magatama through her hand.

[COSPLAY] [The Legend of Zelda] Sheik Cosplay (Sheik)
Completely stunning Sheik cosplay, and a good action shot, too. The prop work with the bow is absolutely amazing. Basically I just love this cosplay.

[COSPLAY] [Daria] Daria by LuckyStrike-cosplay (Daria, Jane, Trent)
The simple cosplays can be really hard to pull off because there's so little to work with, you know? It's easy to devolve into blocky shapes of primary colours. This set of Daria cosplays manages to avoid that, striking a perfect balance.

[VID] [Supernatural] The Man Who Leapt Through Time [Official Trailer] by [tumblr.com profile] kikistiel (2:45) (Castiel/Dean Winchester, Sam Winchester)
I love vids that manage to build entire alternate narratives, stitching together whole plots in just a handful of minutes. This vid inevitably reminds me of The Time Traveller's Wife, and I'm pretty tickled that Dean is the wife in this scenario.


[COSPLAY] [Mass Effect] Epic Mass Effect Cosplay Gif by [tumblr.com profile] cosplaysleepeatplay (Tali, Garrus, Liara, Jack, Thane, Kaiden) These are all amazing, although my favourite is probably going to be Jack. It's so cool seeing these in motion.

[FIC] [Ancillary Justice] Satellites by [archiveofourown.org profile] petrichoral (2,101 words) (Seivarden, Breq) This was the first Ancillary Justice fic I ever found, which is probably part of the reason I'm so fond of it, but I am really invested in Seivarden's recovery from depression and the way it's written here rings a lot of bells for me, from the way that Seivarden can't fathom being worth Breq's time or money, to the way the realisation that she might be scares her to death.

[VID] [Mass Effect] Jennifer Hale does a dramatic reading of Commander Shepard Apparently I've been remiss in my duties and haven't inflicted Commander Shepard by Miracle of Sound on everyone, which means that no one has the context for the voice actress for Commander Shepard doing a dramatic reading! I'm sorry, internet, let me fix that for you.

Hey Ladybusiness ppl, so it's not my fandom, but I'd love to hear any of all y'all's thoughts on The Force Awakens once you've seen it. I just got back from watching it this morning (with my MOM, \o/) and I have a lot of feels, nearly as many and several more complicated than those I had coming out of Fury Road.

What's with your subtitle?

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