[COSPLAY] [Star Wars: The Clone Wars] Asajj Ventress - DragonCon 2016 by [deviantart.com profile] MissSinisterCosplay
I don’t have any regrets about switching my hometown con from Dragon*Con to FlameCon, except maybe missing out on seeing this Asajj Ventress in person this year. Asajj is an amazing character and seeing her and her rage brought to life by Miss Sinister is a treat.

[ART] [Star Wars: Rogue One] Untitled by [tumblr.com profile] the-nothing-maker (Baze/Chirrut)
This is a GORGEOUS Baze/Chirrut comic about Chirrut approaching Baze for the first time. The colors alone are wild.


[ART] [Avatar: The Last Airbender] love, out of nothing by [tumblr.com profile] arriku (Zuko/Katara)
This is some really pretty art of Zuko and Katara as their alternate identities (SPOILER: Blue Spirit and Painted Lady). The lines are very clean and I like the textures.

[ART] [Final Fantasy VII] Final Fantasy VII Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5, Part 6, Part 7 (FFVII Cast)
Absolutely stunning HUGE series of sketches depicting the events of the game, start to finish. I love the gesture and atmosphere of these!

[ART] [Avatar: The Legend of Korra] he was number WAN by [tumblr.com profile] bao-haus (Avatar Wan)
I fell in love with this character during his brief appearance and am simply delighted to find art of him! I love the brushwork here.


[FIC] [Star Wars] A Critical Obituary of Leia Organa by Malcolm Sheppard
I didn't know whether to file this under fic or meta; either way, this in-universe obituary is a beautiful tribute to both the character and the actress who played her. Includes Rogue One spoilers.

[ART] [Avatar: The Legend of Korra] Untitled by [tumblr.com profile] sassakisketches (Korra/Asami)
Awesome action pose of these two.

[ART] [Critical Role] Did Mom Proud by [tumblr.com profile] flyboyelm (Vex & Vax)
Captures a touching moment between the twins. Could be considered spoilery for Episode 79.

[ART] [Dragon Age] Winter Palace Reunion by [tumblr.com profile] allenvooreef (Morrigan/m!Warden, Kieran)
I love the colors on this, and the depiction of a sweet family reunion.

[ART] [Dragon Age] Untitled by [tumblr.com profile] banbaboy (Maevaris Tilani)
Beautiful portrait; the style reminds me of Art Nouveau illustrators like Alphonse Mucha, which suits Maevaris well.


[FIC] [Marvel 616] Plus One by [archiveofourown.org profile] Sineala (2276 words) (Steve/Tony)
There's a gala and Tony needs a date, so what better than asking his pal Steve? TOO BAD that Steve wants to kiss Tony's face a lot, which makes this whole idea of Steve attending a party as Tony's date super complicated. Unrequited love that is, as ever, returned in the end, because I'm me. This story made me happy.

[FIC] [Avengers] help me help you by [archiveofourown.org profile] theappleppielifestyle (7845 words) (Steve/Tony)
Picture the scene: Steve likes Tony but is SUPER AWKWARD about it, but Tony likes to FIX THINGS and he's sure he can fix Steve's love life. Steve agrees to let Tony help woo the person he loves. Cue: so much oblivious pining that I clawed at my face A LOT. This fic is sweet and adorable.


[FIC] [Check, Please!] Revenge Is Best Served @ by [archiveofourown.org profile] perpetfic (1894 words) (Eric Bittle/Jack Zimmerman, Ensemble)
Okay, I have never read Check, Please (I KNOW), but I do have a fondness for weaponised good manners, and this is delightful. I have no idea how in character of fitting with canon it is, but I find it charming and funny and yes, I enjoyed every part of the schemes!

[ART] [Final Fantasy] Sunset Hobbies by [deviantart.com profile] kundagi (White Mage, Red Mage, Black Mage, Chocobo)
The mood and the colours of this piece are really soothing, and the chocobo is really cute! Plus, I enjoy the details of the costumes and that the white mage (most traditional of all female roles!) has been taken by a male character, it's a nice touch.

[FIC] [Kingsman] All in a Day's Work by [archiveofourown.org profile] thecompanystore (640 words) (Roxy Morton, Egsy Unwin)
This is a nice little character study about Roxy's focus and willingness to sacrifice what she has to, and it seems perfectly in character to me! As a bonus, has her and Egsy as best friends who love each other platonically and I am here for this. Everything about their interactions makes me smile, even given the circumstances of the fic.

What's with your subtitle?

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