I don't have a favorite quote, but this is one of my favorite poems:

Snowflake Challenge Day 2: Promote 3 blogs/communities/tumblrs/&c

1. stuckinabucket. I follow this blog for all of my crazy nature needs. The facts you learn are so great that you'll find yourself showing your parents the blog and then freaking out a little when your dad posts the link on Facebook, because it is also a general fandom blog. (Nothing particularly porny though, I checked pretty thoroughly after aforementioned Facebook incident.)

2. Star Maker Machine. I go through phases of following music blogs, but this will always be one of my favorites. Every two weeks there's a new theme, and the bloggers pick a song based on the theme & write about it.

3. Draw this Dress. Two wonderful artists draw people based on photos of vintage/antique/historical dresses, and their drawings bring the dresses to life. You can generally see the reference image by clicking on their drawings. It doesn't update often, but the updates always make me smile.

Honorable mentions (both music blogs): Said the Gramophone & Cover Lay Down.

Snowflake Challenge Day 3: Rec 3 Fanworks
I'm kind of terrified of the backlog AO3 bookmarks I have, so I'm gonna go with vids for this one.
1. Cuckoo by fiveyearmission (Iron Man). This is a Tony Stark character study based on the first two Iron Man movies and it's amazing; I love how the fractured, jumpy cuts so perfectly reflect Tony's persona.

2. Boy with the Bubblegun by [livejournal.com profile] bironic (The Hunger Games). This vid is what prompted me to finally watch the movie. I love the way [livejournal.com profile] bironic contrasts life in the Districts with life in the Capitol, and sets up the theme of revolution.

3. Moves by sisabet (Teen Wolf). This is a character study of Stiles through season 2 and is basically perfect. "These things get louder" paired with the increasing violence and death in Stiles' life and that minor chord (at least I think it's a minor chord?)--it's everything I want out of a character vid.
