31 Days Day 3: Favorite Quote

I don't have a favorite quote, but this is one of my favorite poems:
Bogland by Seamus Heaney )

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 [ profile] bironic (The Hunger Games). This vid is what prompted me to finally watch the movie. I love the way [ 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.

31 Days Meme Day 1 - Intro and a recent picture )

Snowflake Challenge Day 1
In your own space, post a rec for at least three fanworks that you have created. It can be your favorite fanworks that you've created, or fanworks you feel no one ever saw, or fanworks you say would define you as a creator. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

Purest Element But It's So Volatile, a Ryan/Spencer story for BRBB. I struggled with this story a lot because the mix had so much packed into it, a lot of it painful, and I wasn't sure I could do it justice. I'm still not sure I did, honestly, but the story I wrote was out of my comfort zone and I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out.

Build A House Inside of You, a Derek/Stiles fanmix about two fucked-up people in a relationship that's failing because they refuse to deal with their own issues, their subsequent breakup, and their eventual reconciliation after some therapy and/or self-actualization. My 8tracks summary was more succinct. This was my first Teen Wolf mix and I worked on it for.fucking.ever.

sweaty sheets and an ocean view, art for TWHeatWave that's vaguely Derek/Stiles. This was the first drawing I completed in, gosh, at least a year, I think? So that was a pretty big deal. I also pushed myself more with the posing, the background, and the colors than I have in years.
