[ART] [The Legend of Zelda] She Waited by [tumblr.com profile] tsukuyomiland (Navi, Link)
Navi waits for Link. I kind of wish it was the Hero’s Shade at the end, because that’s her Link, but it’s still really cute and made me cry all the same.

[COSPLAY] [Star Trek: The Next Generation] Fem!Data by [tumblr.com profile] vulcannic (Data)
Everything about this cosplay is perfect. Look at this perfect little lady Data!

[ART] [Star Trek/Star Wars: The Force Awakens] Untitled by [tumblr.com profile] celestdoodles (Finn, Rey, Poe)
The new Star Wars trio in the Star Trek universe. I am all over delight.

[ART] [Star Wars: The Force Awakens] Rey, a drop of golden suuuuuuuun 🎶 by [tumblr.com profile] shoomlah (Rey)
Claire Hummel draws Rey and it is obviously amazing.

[FIC] [Star Wars: The Force Awakens] the coat thief by [archiveofourown.org profile] Gretahs (3797) (BB-8, Finn/Poe)
The events of the film from BB-8’s perspective (love the detached language and attached emotion here), with a coda where BB-8 plays matchmaker.

[FIC] [Star Wars: The Force Awakens] just like it should by [archiveofourown.org profile] fabrega (2665) (Finn/Poe)
What, like you didn’t walk out of the movie shipping these two forever? Have a cute fic where Poe is too shy to say something and Finn is his glorious self.

[FIC] [Star Wars: The Force Awakens] no other exile by [archiveofourown.org profile] queerly_it_is (2751) (Phasma, Finn/Poe)
Phasma is great and there was too little of her, so here’s a fic about Phasma getting captured by the Resistance, how she deals with that, and a little slice of Finn/Poe on the side.

[FIC] [Star Wars: The Force Awakens] one hell of a mess by [archiveofourown.org profile] noelia_g (5097) (Finn/Poe, Rey, the Resistance)
This is… perfect. Finn and Poe are stressing out about how cool each other are, while Rey and the X-Wing pilots try to make them see sense. The romance is great, but I really love how its flourishes when it comes to the pilots, like talking about how much Snap adores his wife or Poe’s history with Kare, an original character. YES. PLEASE.


[VID] [Captain America] Zero to Hero by DailyAsgardianNews (3:05) (Captain America)
Really, I'm leaving this as a treat for Renay if she hasn't already seen it. A vid about Steve's transformation into a buff-bodied superperson, set to the adorkable theme song from Hercules.

[COSPLAY] [Spider-Man - Miles Morales] Miles Morales cosplay by [tumblr.com profile] otaku-skum (Miles Morales)
This gender-flipped cosplay of Miles Morales is very cool. Love the cosplayer's shots of the stages it took to achieve the final look of her amazing hair.

[ART] [The Legend of Korra] Untitled by [tumblr.com profile] alwayshumancomic (Korra/Asami)
Really cute art to accompany a really cute headcanon where Korra affectionately messes with Asami. I especially like the last panel where Asami has steam coming out of her ears because she can't even deal.

[VID] [Multi-fandom] I Enjoy Being a Girl by AbsoluteDestiny (3:46) (Buffy Summers, Starbuck, Syndey Bristow, Veronica Mars, Zoe Washburne)
If you want to see a bunch of ladies beat up guys to a peppy show tune about being a girl this is the vid for you! I like how this vid's construction is a rebuttal to the lyrics (the women in this vid do more flipping guys over than flipping over flowers) but at the same time shows female characters having a ball in their own skin. I especially like the sequence about Starbuck and Samuel Anders, and the use of Sidney Bristow's many costumes (which reminds me I really should watch more Alias).

[VID] [The Sarah Connor Chronicles] Gloria by sweetestdrain (5:05) (Sarah Connor/Cameron)
A big tribute to how badass Sarah and Cameron are, and why that means they would be great together. I'm just starting a rewatch of TSCC and I've fallen pretty deep into this ship once again.


[VID] [Jessica Jones] Gasoline by jess9191/ (3:19) (Ensemble)
This is an excellent vid for Jessica Jones, but beware spoilers for the whole of the first season. The song choice is great, and the cuts/beat are really great. I especially love how the vidder used the dialogue in this.

[FIC] [Teen Wolf] Not Quite Lost (Not Quite Found) by [archiveofourown.org profile] alocalband (25,025 words) (Derek/Stiles)
This is a super cute vic about loneliness and growing up and making a home! It was delightful and full of cheer to read. Cold! Snuggling! Winter bundling! I loved it.

[ART] [Mass Effect] Shepard Meets Tali by [tumblr.com profile] hoiist (Shepard, Tali)
A bit of a remix with Lilo & Stitch but not quite a crossover, this comic is laugh out loud funny and completely accurate.

[ART] [Star Wars] Rey by [tumblr.com profile] a1courier
Super action-packed shot of Rey! Obviously not a scene from the film, but a good representation of something she could probably do while beating up jerks. I love the movement in this piece and how dynamic she looks. :D

[ART] [Star Wars] Rey by [tumblr.com profile] samuelyounart
A lovely portrait of Rey looking off into the distance. The inclusion of wind here via the wisps of her hair and her expression invoke a dry, hot, windy desert so well without those things having to be present in the art at all. It's excellently done!

[ART] [Star Wars] Finn & Poe by [tumblr.com profile] kadeart
Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. That is all.


[ART] [Final Fantasy VII] Warm Ups by [tumblr.com profile] chirart (Ensemble) (NSFW)
My favourite artist has been posting FFVII sketches since the trailer came out, and they are so great. I love the sense of motion and character—especially in the sketches of Tifa, because to me there is really a sense that she is strong enough and skilled enough to kick a monster to death if she had to. Plus, there is Barrett being a dorky dad, Aeris and Red XIII being adorable—these really make me happy.

[ART] [Final Fantasy XII] Thoughts while playing: I want to see Al-Cid flirt with the guys in the party too by [tumblr.com profile] buyavowel (Al-Cid, Balthier, Basch, Fran, Penelo, Vaan)
On the one hand, I swear this is canon, but on the other hand... Now I kinda ship it? Oops. Plus: props to the artist for getting the outfits spot on (the details on the clothing is gorgeous, especially Balthier's fiddly waistcoat), and for including Vaan, Penelo and popcorn.

[META] [Ancillary Justice] What do you call a spaceship with a grudge and a gun? by [tumblr.com profile] evelynatthecircus (556 words) (Breq) (Minor spoilers for Ancillary Justice)
I haven't read anything past Ancillary Justice, so I can't say whether or not this still resonates for those who are up-to-date, but I really like this discussion of identity and names, filtered through who Breq has been and how people react to her.
