Hello and Welcome!
This journal is now SEMI-FRIENDS LOCKED.
 photo SFL_small_border_zps596a5854.jpg

Fannish talk, recs, translations and fanart will be open to public (unless I need concrit on something, in which case it will be f-locked), while private life (that makes up for two thirds of what I post, at least at the moment) will be locked.

I don't have a very strict friending policy, but I ask that we at least we have some interest in common, and that we have interacted in some way. I still don't accept random/strangers friending.

I decided to switch from Locked to Semi-locked since I intend to be generally more active on lj, and especially in some of the fandoms I'm in. As I'm generally pretty busy, I don't know how much I will be able to jostle rl with il, but I try.

(And I know I should have made a banner before writing the post. Just know there will be a better banner.)

No I'm not dead!!

A very fast fandom related thing, since today it's my first day of spring break I wanted to participate in the merlin_art_fest ... Except I won't be able to claim the prompts ;_;

My question is if there would be anybody willing to act as a proxy for me? I know it's very last minute, but I hadn't noticed that the claiming post opens at 4.30 AM on a saturday night (time zones, gotta love those) in which I won't be home unless I get suddenly sick (please no).

Anyway, I really hope somebody has time for it! Thanks in advance!

And we are finally here!

There are many things to say, and I want to start with a huge thank you and a note of never-ending awe to my amazing author, eternal_jazz . Sweetheart, not only you are amazingly talented, but have all the patience in the world. Thank you for being my companion in this great adventure!
Another thank you goes to all the supportive and dear people in the Merlin fandom. I wouldn't be here if not for you all, so thank you, for real.
And last but not least, our godly mod the_muppet thank you for working so hard and putting all of us together in this Big Bang.

About the art: note that for the next hours days I will be updating with new pieces, especially from the latter part of the story. I know, I suck, but I didn't make it in time. Luckily Desi's story makes well up for the lack of art!
These all contain spoilers for the story so GO READ IT!

Candle, Cup and Casket ARTCollapse )

I hope you liked them, concrit is always well accepted!
I will add the new pieces to this post, but also make a new one for every new up. Stay tuned!

*Latest art added on August 29th!

I probably have time for doing everything I had planned.
The story is amazing and flawless and 125K and growing and I'M STILL WITHOUT INTERNET so looking for references is a pain in the ass (I have to go to the bf's place to be able to connect for more than typing and modding c_d)

Still cleaning and making home habitable (albeit without connection or land-line phone) but HURRAY I now made a workstation here to so DRAWING, I CAN.

[Also: no, I'm not dead! Love you ALLLLLLL]

Omg I just got back from the movies and dskfhjfhfwgahhgf OMG!
I loved the movie!
Here it came out on the 12th so yeah, stupid italian cinemas. Also, the voice actor they chose for Benedict SUCKS. Can't wait to have the dvd in original! I'm going to see it again in 2D so I'll be able to enjoy it even better. I don't like 3D and I'm not used to it so it took me almost half of the movie to get properly focused.
Here lie spoilers!Collapse )

I really need a ST icon... Ugh, I am actually thinking about a paid account. *sighs*

Hello dears!

This week brought merlin_muses reveals! Go over, you know there's never enough Merlin fic in our lives!
So yeah, the only drawing was mine, as some of you knew.

I got some lovely comments over on AO3 which I plan to reply to soon (I just noticed that they un-anon-ed it) - and kudos! My first kudos! *giggles*.

Here is the link to the deviantArt if you want. Not much to see tho!

Another recap because I keep needing reminding.

  • ksbigbang : Claiming was yesterday! And as you know I got my first pick, that I now know is lovely jouissant ! I look forward working for her! Deadline is on the 24th and it makes my schedule a bit tight because I have 4 exams next week. I will manage but I don't know how many pieces. Tonight I'll read her story and we'll see! :D

  • avengers_rbb : I still have the same idea buzzing through my head but since the deadline is the 24th for that too, I'm starting to worry I won't be able to complete it. I want to focus on the KSbang first.

  • paperlegends : I've got one of the two stories, which is 100K+ and still going. Amazing! But given my schedule, PL will be left for the end of June while I read both stories. It gives me more than a month (in which I have all day to dedicate to drawing) to complete both and I can manage.

  • I had an idea for the TW "This might Hurt" contest over at dA, and the deadline has been moved to the 10th, but sadly I really don't have the time to fit it anywhere :(

Luckily all the other projects/bangs are after mid-september, which gives me august to plan/get them underway. As I'll be moving in mid september, I'll have to bring my art supplies to Japan with me, but I had already thought about that so no change in plans.

So, my first ever claiming!

I will be working with #106 and #21, which are respectively of skitz_phenom (who is my cheer-lead and I snatched beforehand, because I'm sneaky), whose story is simply brilliant and I can't believe she accepted to have me as artist, and eternal_jazz , whose story simply blew my mind just from the summary, and is now stuck with me wanting or not. XD
I'm so SO thrilled about both stories you cannot even imagine!


How were your claims dears?

ROUND TWO is now open over at the claiming post! Artists, go and claim those saucy summaries!!! (also, I can't believe that my third choice is still there °_°)

Edit: this is now public because the_muppet said that if you know who your claims are, you can start working with them right away :)
