[ART] [The Graceling Realm] Lady Fire, Queen Bitterblue, and Katsa by [tumblr.com profile] may12324
I have never seen fanart for The Graceling Realmbefore! Here’s all three protagonists of the three novels, and they look AMAZING.

[ART] [Star Wars: The Force Awakens] Star Wars, The Force Awakens by [tumblr.com profile] kevinwada
Kevin Wada did a piece of the new trio plus Kylo Ren, and I will buy a ton of any prints of this he has at FlameCon. I LOVE IT.

[ART] [Star Wars: The Force Awakens] Regency AU Captain Phasma by [tumblr.com profile] therealmcgee
This is the first piece in this Regency AU I’ve been seeing around tumblr that’s made me sit up and go "MARRY ME," so… go have a gander at the wonders of Regency Captain Phasma.


[VID] [Supernatural] Dean Winchester: Ex's and Oh's by Roarkshop (3:22) (Dean Winchester/Everyone)
This is a video of Dean Winchester's sexuality as set to Elle King's Ex's and Oh's and IT IS PERFECT. It highlights Dean's auto-flirt feature perfectly and touches on his relationships with Sam, Castiel, Crowley, Anna, Cain, and more. It's just. It's THE Dean Winchester vid for me.

[ART] [Dragon Age 2] Untitled by [tumblr.com profile] theminttu (Fem Hawke/Isabela)
This is such a sweet and hot pic of Fem Hawke and Isabela. Isabela looks so STRONG and WITH IT and I just love this femmelsashy picture so much!

[META] [Star Wars: The Force Awakens] Skywalker Organa Solo by [tumblr.com profile] frozenmusings (75 words) (Leia Organa, Han Solo, Kylo Ren)
This is a photographic comparison of Leia, Han, and Kylo Ren in various positions and expressions and it convinces me 100% of the casting. It's such a good middle ground between the actors.

[ART] [Final Fantasy XII] What if Fran got to dress practically. by [tumblr.com profile] yinza (Fran)
Fran had one of the more ridiculous outfits in FFXII and I love seeing reimaginings of her. This is a great one!


[ART] [Avengers] Tony with his team of smol avengers children! by [tumblr.com profile] dchanberry (Ensemble)
I just discovered this artist and everything they make is so bright and happy and cheerful! I do like the All-New All-Different Avengers run a lot. I want them to have more space for Tony to take Kamala, Sam, and Miles under his wing so this art can be REALITY (I know this will happen, but I can dream and stare at this art).

[ART] [Final Fantasy VIII] Squall by [tumblr.com profile] oneeyedcandybar
Teenage me is in hysterics over this, because she loved Squall so much. Everything about this is so excellent! The rain! His belts! Ah, nostalgia.

[ART] [Sailor Moon] Usagi and Luna by [tumblr.com profile] courtneywirthit
I love the texture and color on this. I've always loved the different ways artists render hair, too, and here it's so pretty.

[ART] [Sailor Moon] Usagi by [tumblr.com profile] leahartwick
This is adorable. Plus, in this art, Usagi is me. :D


[Fic] [Jupiter Ascending/Leverage] The Ascendant Job by [archiveofourown.org profile] lady_ragnell

... More seriously, the voices of all of the characters are great? The idea is great? Everyone's reaction is spot on (especially Sophie and Parker), and this is amazing.

[FIC] [Star Wars: The Force Awakens] have you heard by [archiveofourown.org profile] peradi (42,166 words) (Ensemble, some Finn/Poe/Rey) (Caution warnings for death, violence, off-screen rape, off-screen abuse; ask if you need more specifics on these warnings?) — Okay, I can't remember who mentioned that they'd be up for fic about "Finn inspires a revolution" the other week (Jodie, was it you? Clare?) but I saw that request and knew exactly what fic I needed to link to. This is a fucking heartbreaking monster of a fic based on "Finn as the patron saint of the Stormtrooper rebellion", with rebellion spreading among the First Order! And the different ways there are to rebel, and to attempt to squash rebellion! And the ways the Resistance has to adapt to bringing them in, and Stormtroopers learning to be people on a grand scale, and what happens when the people they learn to be are – not great. I love it. I love it a lot. It does interesting things in the assumptions it makes about how the world would go if the Stormtroopers did defect? (I'm not sure how I feel about some of those assumptions, but it all ties together really well so I have no real complaints?) Plus the recurring imagery and use of stories are awesome, especially the folk tale in this fic and the way everyone has a different variation and interpretation of it? And the way that the story of FN-2187 (The myth of FN-2187? The propaganda of FN-2187?) is so important.

... I've been reccing this fic pretty hard far and wide, so HI I HOPE YOU ALL LIKE IT.

[VID] [Mass Effect] Mass Effect 3: The Search For Shepard DLC Trailer 2 by Eji (2:14) (Kaiden, ensemble) (Spoilers for ME3)
... Okay, someone made a trailer for a fake DLC that is not only quality, but looks like something that I would play the FUCK out of. *starry eyes*

It was totally me who wanted the Star Wars fic (because of that meta I saw recently) THANKS SUSAN!

Also, love, love that image of Fire from The Gracelings realm piece, Clare.

What's with your subtitle?

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