Hello and Goodbye

I don't know how many people are still active around here, but I've certainly not been in quite awhile. And I've decided that the time for me to be on lj is at an end. But since I would like to get back to a more journal platform, I've revived my dw! Anyone who is on there, feel free to hit me up :)

(I will still potentially be using lj for exchange stuff, but I don't forsee my personal journal seeing any more posts.)

Art: In|Servitude (Naruto, ShikaNeji & KakaNaru)

My third and final art for this year's wipbigbang! The author unfortunately wasn't able to finish for the bang, so no link atm. There were some great visuals in this epic fic that I wanted to incorporate into the art, particularly around a scroll that gets described. Transferring my sketches to the final art was, as always, a bit of a bumpy ride, especially since I realized I didn't quite have the skills to do a lot of it to my satisfaction. But I like how they came out anyway!

Author: Nemmy
Fandom: Naruto
Pairing: Shikamaru/Neji, Kakashi/Naruto
Summary: In order to find out the truth behind his sensei Asuma’s supposed suicide, Shikamaru, the young heir of the Nara clan, will turn over every brick and shingle of the capital, even if it means risking his family’s reputation and safety by making an enemy of the bakufu and possibly the entire shogunate, even if it means exacerbating the already antagonistic rivalry between Naruto, adopted son and heir of Daimyo Tsunade and Sasuke, the youngest son of the house of shinpan Daimyo Uchiha, even if it means repeatedly clashing with Hyuuga Neji, the young and dogmatic bushi, who looks down upon Shikamaru for his humble origins and detests him for his reckless disregard for the courts and the customs alike.

Art: death first to vultures and scavengers (Star Wars, Kylux)

Second art for this year's wipbigbang! A little late bc I had to travel on short notice... Anyway, I really enjoyed reading this moody, atmospheric fic, and I was so happy to get to do art for it :) I had a bit of trouble translating my original sketch for the cover into the final project (originally there were going to be figures going down the stairs, per the fic), but I think all in all the art turned out really well!!

death first to vultures and scavengers
Author: technorat
Fandom: Star Wars Sequel Trilogy
Pairing: Armitage Hux/Kylo Ren
Summary: Kylo Ren is tasked by Snoke with the retrieval of a set of Force-sensitive cultists from Arkanis. Hux is not at all what he had expected of them.

Art: Meet Me in California (IT Movies)

First art of this year's wipbigbang! I was super excited to do some IT art since that's been my hyperfocus fandom this year lol And it was such a good fic!! It made me laugh and cry and honestly I'm already looking forward to a reread lol

Meet Me in California

Fandom: IT Movies
Pairing: Richie Tozier/ Eddie Kaspbrack
Summary: In which a dick measuring contest goes terribly wrong (or right, depending on your perspective) resulting in the union of Derry's two resident doofuses--a union that both are too scared to define.

Join us at wipbigbang
Sign up March 23-April 13 and Finish Your Sh**!

This is a Big Bang with one goal in mind: to clean out your drafts folder. These are stories that were unfinished for whatever reason, that authors returned to and completed, and the art that goes with them! All fandoms welcome!

some updates!

  • The last (ie all the international and fic ones) of my holiday cards have been sent! Finally... Sorry I am so terrible at getting those out on time. I mean, I got them sent earlier than the year before, so I guess that's a plus? I will endeavor to keep improving lol

  • Updated the rest of my horror movie a day watches! I had it updated on pillowfort as I was going but forgot to update it here, whoops.

  • Also updated my Yuletide Recs. Still reading my way through the collection, so there'll likely be at least one more update to it. At some point.

  • Starting prep for wipbigbang. New round will start mid March, and we've got a lot of changes/improvements to try to implement this year in order to make it less overwhelming to run. Wish us luck!

  • I haven't checked my flist in... probably two weeks at least. Life has been rough as usual lol Mostly due to depression and doing a lot of cleaning to avoid actual responsibilities. But I'm gonna try to catch up on everyone's entries soon!


Oscars 2019

The Oscars are tonight! I'm excited to see how it goes this year. Even though I'm kind of side eyeing some of their nominations lol But you know, it happens.

I didn't make as much of an effort to watch the nominees this year, thus my opinions are probably even more narrow than usual. Also it just feels like the Oscars came up so fast this year?? I didn't have time to watch as much stuff after nominations in preparation. Anyway, I watched a grand total of 8 of the nominees this year, which is 1 more than I saw last year, which is cool.

So here's my list of watched nominations, plus short reviews:

And now, since I obviously know so much about it (lol), my predictions:

I'll likely be liveblogging on my Oscars 2019 tag on pillowfort (and/or possibly on twitter?), so feel free to watch me be completely wrong in real time!

ETA: I got 9 out of 24! Two better than last year, booya :D
