[ART] [Star Wars: The Force Awakens] That scene in Mulan where all the ancestors are arguing about whose fault it was that Mulan ran off to join the army except with all the Force ghosts arguing about [SPOILER] by [tumblr.com profile] freakxwannaxbe
We all wanted this to happen and now it’s in comic form! Also, I’m a huge fan of Qui-Gon Jinn, the worst Jedi ever bar, obviously, Anakin.

[ART] [Star Wars: The Force Awakens] Ben and Rey by Jenny Dolfen (SPOILERS)
Ben and Rey as kids. I really love how Dolfen draws Ben’s face.

[ART] [Star Wars: The Force Awakens] Rey’s Episode VIII Outfit by [tumblr.com profile] celestdoodles
Celeste designs Rey’s Episode VIII outfit.

[META] [Star Wars: The Force Awakens] Untitled Theory by [tumblr.com profile] reysolowalkers (SPOILERS)
This is just a really interesting theory about who Rey is that I liked that makes a lot of sense, even though I’m not a fan of Rey being related to anybody (who does not look like Ewan McGregor).

[ART] [X-Men] Unfinished Gambit and Jubilee redesign sketch by [tumblr.com profile] kevinwada
Kevin Wada designed a lady Gambit and I think I’m in love with her and her punk Glenn Close face.


[ART] [Mass Effect 2] Commander Shepard and Thane Krios for my friend Dani by [tumblr.com profile] kate-n-bd (Shepard/Thane Krios)
Thane/Shepard is my jam! My tragic, tragic jam. I love the smooth linework on this, and how delicately Thane seems to cradle Shepard's cheek. I think it captures the romantic mood of the relationship quite well!

[ART] [Final Fantasy VIII] A quick little doodle while I watch the moon! by skribleskrable (Squall/Rinoa, Angelo)
LIFE WITH SOMEONE WHO LOVES DOGS. SORRY SQUALL. I absolutely love this little slice-of-life peek at Squall and Rinoa's life together. It's so tender and annoyed and perfect!

[COSPLAY] [Star Wars/Disney] Disney/Star Wars mashup themed shoot by York in a Box (Pocahontas, Rapunzel, Elsa, Anna, Ariel, Snow White, Tinkerbell, Mulan)
Boba Fett meets Disney! I love the creativity and details on these. Rapunzel might be my favourite — what's yours?

[COSPLAY] [Final Fantasy VII] Vincent and Lucrecia by [tumblr.com profile] narcisspuppet (Vincent Valentine, Lucrecia Crescent, Vincent/Lucrecia)
I honestly thought these were FMV screenshots at first. It's so good. This may be the best Vincent cosplay I've ever seen, and the Lucrecia is excellent too.

[FIC] [Dragon Age] The Other Hawke by [archiveofourown.org profile] tanukiham (405,508) (Fenris/Carver Hawke, other ships depending on installment)
Friends, it is time for Carver Hawke to get some love! And this fic has Carver love in abundance, and a pretty critical look at Garrett Hawke, and everyone being really in character, and there's heart-punching (and not all of it the Fenris kind) and basically be prepared for a rollercoaster of a ride. It is a WIP, but I recommend it anyway, as it updated regularly. Carver!


[FIC] Sleepy Hollow/Hamilton/Historical RPF Don't Be Shocked When Your Hist'ry Book Mentions Me by Various Authors (currently about 30,000 words across 10 stories) (Ichabod Crane, Abbie Mills, Alexander Hamilton, Ron Chernow, various OCs and historical figures)
What if Ichabod and Abbie found Alexander Hamilton in suspended animation and brought him into the present? This is the premise for a delightful shared universe of stories, written by several authors. It's more grounded in Hamilton canon than in Sleepy Hollow, so I recommend these even if you haven't watched the show (I'm a season behind myself).


[ART] [Final Fantasy VII] More Final Fantasy VII sketches by [tumblr.com profile] chirart (Ensemble)
I love these sketches, they're so full of character and motion! I think my favourites are probably the ones of Yuffie, because her expressions are great.

[FIC] [Star Wars: The Force Awakens] we are all stardust by [archiveofourown.org profile] synergenic (15,345 words) (Finn/Poe) (NSFW)
*claws face* Oh god, this fic. I have some reservations about bits of it (I kinda side-eye any scifi story that tells me that homosexuality is unexpected when people canonically fuck non-human species, sudden Force sensitivity what? And Finn's characterisation seems... A little bit more naïve than I expected?), but this fic just bowled me over with sheer emotions and had me sobbing about 300 words in.

[ART] [Mass Effect] Palette Meme: FemShep + Husk in #13 by [tumblr.com profile] soratone (Commander Shepard)
The details of the husk and the action are all really excellent, and it's a really stylised take on Shepard that looks really cool.

You should have seen my face when I got to the Sleepy Hollow/Hamilton crossover. Thta sounds so magical.

What's with your subtitle?

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