Sometimes, the best part of a crossover is wondering how two characters could possibly get on, and then being happily convinced that they absolutely would.

I am terribly lazy and procrastinating sharing this simply because it didn't have a handy share button. I am very spoiled these days.

Good job, you guys! \o/

A very big THANK YOU to everyone who helped signal boost the [community profile] drawesome community over the weekend! We gained more than 30 new members yesterday, so well done everybody! *high-five*

So far, even though we seem to have a lot of new community members, only a handful of people have ventured into the Introduce Yourself page to break the ice. I understand how it can be a bit intimidating, to put yourself out there in a public comm.

So if any of you guys want to add a contribution to the post (whether comment or sketch) to get the interaction going, that would be awesome! Drawesome, even! LOL.

Naming the Art Community?

So, looking back at my previous post, I was really delighted that fellow fan-artists indicated an interest in having a community for practicing drawing skills, be it digital or traditional media.

I'm sitting here brainstorming community names. Basic names like Art, Artists, Draw, Drawing, Drawings, Drawn are already taken. Anyway, this is the kind of stuff I'm coming up with:

drawpaint, drawnow, drawit, drawthis, idrewthis, idraw, drawnbyhand, drawntoart, readysetdraw, drawingskills, wedraw, groupdraw, drawingtogether, drawingroup, drawyes, drawesome, drawpaintgrow, drawyay, yaydrawing, drawn2art, drawn2fanart, 123draw, quickdraw, lovetodraw, drawsomething, drawingroom, drawmore.

I...kinda like drawmore, wedraw, or drawthis. IDK.

What are you guys partial to? Got any other suggests?

EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!

This is one of those beautiful vids that feels like it summarises the canon -- like the ship is obviously there, you can see it all of those scenes, and the fact that Michael walks away to be with Sara doesn't reduce or distract from the Alex/Michael feels. In essence, this is how I saw the show, and it's lovely to see it in vid form.

Smokey and I are throwing ourselves around in attitudes, as it’s very hot (for Britain) and very humid. I’m all miserable and sweaty, and I’m sure I can say the same for Smokey but she only sweats through her paws. She has quite sweaty paws, though, and was once found to be allergic to a specific type of kitty litter for that reason.

In other news, I’ve done the first pass of ripping my DVDs to soft copy. I’m left with a few irritations – some of the seasons of Criminal Minds didn’t rip properly and I’ll have to rip them again, this time into MKV files. Plus the titles got somehow mixed up (it was obviously my fault) on the Basil Rathbone Sherlock Holmes films, and I’m going to have to go through them patiently and make sure the right title is attached to each film. But it is mostly done.

I’m still following what’s coming out about the Grenfell Tower fire – the worst case of a fire since WW2, I think, and was totally avoidable if Kensington and Chelsea had just listened to the people who lived there and actually spent money on the place where it was needed. ‘Not political’ indeed! Ptui!

Art Community on DW?

I've been wanting to join a Fan-Artists community for quite some time, but haven't come across what I'm seeking. What I want is a place where fan-artists (of traditional media) can challenge and motivate each other, a place for collaborating and posting, for getting feedback and advice.

On LJ, I loved being part of [livejournal.com profile] drawmelot, a community for traditional artists in the Merlin fandom. I especially always enjoyed their collaborative projects, eg. Tarot cards, Zodiac signs, Celtic animals.

I was wondering if there's anything like that out there on DW, fandom-specific or multi-fandom? And if not, would any other fan-artists be interesting in using such a comm?

Anyone wanna help me get something like that started?

From where I'm standing, weather is being deceptively pleasant. Sun is shining, birds are singing. Gorgeous day on the island.

From another perspective though:



AHHHHHHHH. So this was taken an hour or two ago. Guess what's at our doorstep... /o\

Reccing this because I know [personal profile] china_shop is shipping Ibis/Jacquel too, and I love the quiet accepting tone to this story.


Cities in dust (3203 words) by hypsoline
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: American Gods - Neil Gaiman, American Gods (TV)
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Mr. Ibis/Mr. Jacquel
Characters: Mr. Ibis, Mr. Jacquel, Bastet (Ancient Egyptian), Anubis (Ancient Egyptian), Thoth (Ancient Egyptian)
Additional Tags: Old Gods, New Gods, Old Married Couple, Ancient Egyptian Deities
Summary:

An Old God, a forgotten word. ‘He is what he is’, Mr. Jacquel whispers into Mr. Ibis’ neck, on full moon nights. The lights of the modern world rob the sky of all its ancient mystery, perhaps of its Gods too. But new ones have taken their place, and thus the divinity has been passed on, not completely alienated.

1. I just whiled away an hour amusing myself playing Pictionary with a neural network: Quick, Draw!. I'm there drawing my masterpiece Pig and it guesses "the Great Wall of China". *dies laughing*

2. Fic Rec! I have a major weakness for Angel/Demon AUs, and this series certainly delivers. *___*

3. I had Moonlight sitting in my laptop for quite a few months now, and was working up to watching it. I finally did this evening. I'd also seen two other queer-themed films this week, Pride and Handsome Devil, both of which I enjoyed and found pretty upbeat with uplifting endings.

I knew Moonlight would have a whole different tone and braced myself for it going in. Poor child. It was heartbreaking. The ending felt abrupt. I still don't know how I feel about it, but am glad that it was made, and that these kind of stories are being told, and getting recognition by the film industry.

According to the news this lunchtime, the number of people known to have died in the Grenfell Tower fire has risen to 30, with that number due to rise still higher.

On the BBC News website, “Architect and fire expert Sam Webb said: "We are still wrapping post-war high-rise buildings in highly flammable materials and leaving them without sprinkler systems installed, then being surprised when they burn down.

“"I really don't think the building industry understands how fire behaves in buildings and how dangerous it can be. The government's mania for deregulation means our current safety standards just aren't good enough."”


I do believe that this fire was caused by corners being cut by the local council, the cladding used not being correct for the use to which it was being put, and the fact that cladding was in place was at least partly – from the paperwork mostly – put there so that posh people living locally weren’t offended by the sight of a scruffy block of 1970s flats.

I spent most of Wednesday morning in tears, and then had to go and be interviewed for a job. Not surprisingly, I didn’t do especially well at the job interview.

Summary:

He hadn’t come here with a contract. He’d come here to get the faces out of his head: the bloodless dead sprawled in heaps through the streets of Beauclair, the morning after the rampage Detlaff had unleashed; the blank eyes of the boy in the orphanage tilting his head to let Orianna drink from his throat, with the lullaby she’d been singing him still hanging in the air.


Wasn’t working that well so far.
