[ART] [Marvel] Hela w/ Iris van Herpen’s Skeleton dress を着せたかっただけ by [tumblr.com profile] niwa-blog
Iris van Herpen’s 3D-printed skeleton dress is stunning and high concept, a description that also applies to Hela herself. I love the limited color palette and how the dress, in niwa’s hands, becomes armor for Hela. She’s all shadows and spikes and bones. Gorgeous.

[VID] [Marvel Cinematic Universe] TITLE by [tumblr.com profile] voordeel-ts (1:28)
It is completely unsurprising that voordeel, who also made my favorite Hannibal "Glitter & Gold," made a thrilling Marvel Cinematic Universe ~movement poem~ that marries action with sick beats. I literally gasped on the match cut between Cap and Hawkeye, and I adore the cut from Hulk and Thor running at each other to Bruce and Thor fistfiving.


[VID] [Wonder Woman (2017)] Breath of Life by [personal profile] chaila (4:27) (Diana, Steve Trevor, Hippolyta, Antiope)
So, chaila has made a new Wonder Woman vid and I am SCREAMING because it is SO GOOD. I need lots of time that I don't have right now, due to doing all the retail work, to watch it again and analyse exactly what she is doing here but at first watch it's about war, mothers, mentors, women, and feelings. I loooooovvvvveeee iiiiiiiitttttt.

[ART] [Star Wars: The Last Jedi] "I need someone to show me my place in all of this..." by [twitter.com profile] alicexz (Rey)
This is a gorgeous piece of Rey art. Not only is the background stunning, but the portrait of Rey is full of movement and drama. You feel pulled into the picture by the force of Rey's emotions.

[ART] [Hannibal] Untitled by [tumblr.com profile] granpappy-winchester (Hannibal Lecter/Will Graham)
[twitter.com profile] Hello_Tailor shared this Hannibal fanart that she got for her birthday on Twitter. Apparently, it's a cover for a Hannibal/Northern Lights crossover fanfiction (which I am now extremely interested in). It is both super adorable and very atmospheric - just look at the use of shadow, and those colours!

[VID] [Strictly Come Dancing] Firework by [twitter.com profile] llintrek (3:22) (Susan Calman, Kevin Clifton)
A joyful vid of Kevin and Susan's highlights from Strictly Come Dancing 2017.


[ART] [Fate/Zero] TITLE by [twitter.com profile] rei_17 (Rider, Waver Velvet)
I may have keened into my laptop when I saw this because I am WRECKED. This art! Those colours! Waver's face – the expressions are so good and tell a whole story about what's happening, and this is a scene that I desperately needed after Fate/Zero so I am destroyed.

[FIC] [Final Fantasy VIII] deserted by [archiveofourown.org profile] Baconfat (1989 words) (Seifer Almasy/Zell Dincht)
Okay, here is the thing with liking stories about Seifer: he's an asshole. And this fic doesn't soften that! It's a really good look at Seifer post-game, and a better look at him as the guy who did the things he does in the game. Plus: Zell's characterisation is spot on here. <3

[VID] [Star Wars] "The Tap Awakens" - Star Wars Tap Dance Medley ft. Sarah Reich by PostmodernJukebox (2:46)
This is pretty much exactly what it says on the tin, but I am unreasonably delighted by it.

What's with your subtitle?

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