[livejournal.com profile] youcallitwinter wrote me fic (again) and I am here to rec it for you.

before you trade in your summer skin
lost, claire/jack
I honestly don't even know how to put my feelings about this into words. This is the first time she's ever written this pairing and LET'S JUST SAY SHE IS A GROSS OVERACHIEVER OKAY? Really? REALLY? Perfection.

+

from what i've tasted of desire (i hold with those who favor fire)
the vampire diaries, caroline/stefan/tyler; nc17
I meant to rec this back when she wrote it a little while ago and then never did, shame on me. This is pretty much perfection and one of the best of this threesome I've ever read. Really. Go enjoy it.

Any questions?

(Real reaction post tomorrow. When I've re-watched and re-absorbed. Feel free to leave spoilery comments.)

OH! And by the way? THIS FIC is awesome. Someone wrote little missing scene/post ep fics for every episode this season. And I love them for it.
krickets: (✈ ar; in these crumbling walls;)
city with no children; by [livejournal.com profile] shireberries
lost; alex/richard; r; 3732
author's summary: I'm taking you somewhere safe.
zombies!, au, apocalypse, scars, journeys
This was written for five acts which feels like it was forever ago, but like I said I'd been really behind on my fic-reading so I just now got to these today and let me say this was well worth the wait! Really fantastic (and an intriguing appearance by Ben as well.) Definitely check it out! link!

FIC REC
Ain't Misbehavin' by [livejournal.com profile] lit_chick08
Pairings: Stefan/Rebekah, Stefan/Klaus, Klaus/Rebekah/Stefan, hints of Rebekah/Klaus, Lexi/Klaus
Warnings: incestuous overtones, slash, voyeurism, threesome
Summary: Rebekah had always wanted to be her brother's favorite sister; she just hadn't understood what exactly that meant

I am just going to quote what I told her at her entry: This is full stop. Not even in a "sort of" way. THE BEST. TVD. FIC. I'VE EVER READ. And I wasn't kidding. Now, granted, my exploits into tvd ficdom are limited, but I can pretty much guarantee you that this assessment will stick for a long time. So good. And dark. And flashbacks! And Lexi! And Elijah! And hotness. (Oh so much hotness.) And I am just so amazed that she pulled this together just days after that last episode. And how much I am in love with Rebekah after one episode (and this really fucking good fic.) Okay that's it. I'm done flailing. (But only publicly.) The end.

Have I mentioned that this is going on?

Clicky!


I am going to try to write for it, in the meantime you should read some of the awesome stuff some folks wrote with my prompts!

pop my heart seams; stefan/katherine; r
by [livejournal.com profile] lenina20; prompt - beggars and liars, gypsies and thieves
she offers her neck best. teeth tear her open, and she bites her own lip, sucking, drinking so she doesn’t say she loves him, she loves him, sheloveshim.

crumbling beauty (only gets worse); katherine
by [livejournal.com profile] holycitygirl; prompt - there's nothing wrong with her a hundred dollars won't fix
Humanity to her is the lingering touch of a bad dream, the vague recollection of a disconcerting race of the heart, a twisting pain in the gut. It is disappointment, and lack of control, and overwhelming weakness.

here where i was left alone; elena
by [livejournal.com profile] holycitygirl; prompt - there's a house on my block that's abandoned and cold
She doesn't laugh because it isn't funny, but she does lean into the hand he places on her cheek.

our bridges don't burn to the ground; stefan
by [livejournal.com profile] holycitygirl; prompt - all the rooms, they smell like diesel, and you take on the dreams of the ones who have slept there
Klaus is quite disappointed. "Really, kiddies? Is this the best you can do?"

And this one, which is not my prompt, but which I loveee!
champagne for my real friends (real pain for my sham friends); elena/tyler; pre-series
by [livejournal.com profile] lit_chick08
Elena watches the Mayor press the flesh, campaigning even as the others mourn, and she hates him so acutely, she feels her fists clenching, nails digging into her palms.

I need to read more of what's been written. I need to write (at all)!

→ So apparently!! Tyler Shields has collected (is collecting?) the actual blood of 'around 20' celebrities to be displayed as the center piece for an upcoming gallery opening. He's painting with it and maybe something else. Not sure how to react to that, but I do think it's a great metaphor for celebrity culture. Generally I'm a fan of Tyler's work, which you can see examples of below (unaltered aside from resizing, click the image for a bigger version). I think my choices don't really give you an accurate idea of his obesession with white, black, and red, sex, violence, sex&violence, and the truly bizarre, but you get the idea. See his site for more, which at times can be NSFW so I'd wait until I got home to click. I'd especially check out his portfolio (his blog has ADD) and his video portraits you can find there. He definitely has a knack for capturing celebrities in a way that they generally aren't captured.



→ So yesterday I stopped off after work to get some sushi (cause clearly I'm addicted) and this adorable server caught me making a horrified expression when I first read the news above. I explained to him what I was doing (reading tweets!) and why I was making that expression. Then later when I was checking out, he starts gushing, total fanboy mode, about how his favorite celebrity is Zooey Deschanel and how he follows her on twitter but she's never tweeted him back, and how he thinks she's the perfect woman ever. It was really cute. (Not in a stalkery way.)

→ Have I mentioned how Panera Bread has the best mac & cheese in the known universe?

Cause they do.

FIC REC: [livejournal.com profile] ozmissage, light of my light, apple of my eye, etc. etc. wrote me Caroline/Stefan/Tyler which is to-die-for. Suspenseful and really does a good job of bringing them together in a believable compelling way. Whereas I like to subscribe to the Caroline Forbes way of thinking: just add sex. Which, don't get me wrong, has its merits. But it is not this, which is just gorgeous and so in-character and perfect! Go read it!

Title: it seems that all of my bridges have been burned
Pairing: Stefan/Tyler/Caroline
Rating: PG-13 (violent imagery, character death)
Words: 2,716
Summary: It would be funny if he wasn’t one of the monsters. Spoilers through 2x17.

ETA: The Vampire Diaries was renewed! Yay! (Not that I was worried.)

Tyler and Caroline imagine different goodbyes. Real ones. Post-“Crying Wolf.”

by [livejournal.com profile] stainofmylove; Caroline/Tyler; nc17
He just wants to be close to her. That’s the only way he can put it.

CAROLINE/STEFAN
people are dying [i close my blinds]
by [livejournal.com profile] holycitygirl; Caroline/Stefan; pg
You still feel and you still hurt and the pain you could cause - if you chose to- is equal to the pain you feel when they stab the knife in your back.


Went looking for The Vampire Diaries fic for the first time the other day. Found a few gems. Couldn't really find much Caroline/Stefan though. Anybody got any good recs for them? But then [livejournal.com profile] holycitygirl wrote me Caroline/Stefan today! *twirls and stuff* So there's that! Enjoy! (And feed the authors!)

→ So today there was an awesome ladies podfic anthology posted at [livejournal.com profile] halfamoon. [livejournal.com profile] rhea314 read my teeny tiny [out-of-nowhere] fic, to the other side, about luisa from y tu mama tambien. I'm very honored to be a part of it and it's really neat to hear someone reading your work. So you guy should go check it out if you want.

→ I got this awesome "mallow kebab" for my parents for valentine's day at World Market today. The thing is at least two feet long. (Maybe longer? I don't know. I'm a bad judge of size, haha.) Just look!:cut for size, HAHAHAHA. )

→ Speaking of valentine's day treats, thank you to [livejournal.com profile] angela_weber for the awesome valentine's day fic she wrote me! Yay!

→ I don't know if I mentioned to anyone but I deleted my tumblr about a week ago. There are a myriad of reasons but the major one was that it just wasn't for me. I'll probably refrain from discussing it at any length, but there is a certain sociological element to it that I just couldn't seem to get on board with. And I really had no interest in trying. I pretty much posted every graphic both here and at livejournal, so it's not like you won't be able to find me or the random stuff I may make from time-to-time.

→ There is only one graphic (and not just colored pictures) that I made and posted there that I hadn't had a chance to post here yet:

Tyler from The Vampire Diaries.

VIVIDCON HAS ARRIVED

Which means that it's time for amazing videos to be posted that will blow your mind/make you wanna dance/fill you with glee etc. I am finally over that whole "watching vids will make me unable to vid myself" paranoia that I was stuck in for, oh, about a year, with little exception. So now I am just enjoying the show, so-to-speak. [And getting inspired.]

I have a few recs already!

The Name of the Game; Legend of the Seeker; by [livejournal.com profile] bradcpu
This show was always beautiful but it has never looked as amazing as it does in this vid. The editing, the music, the epicness, the hotness, the sex! It's just gorgeous! You'll love it even if you've never seen the show. [And now I should probably consider watching season two.]

Boom Boom Pow; Fringe; by [livejournal.com profile] hollywoodgrrl
Most awesome recruiter vid ever? Awesome music and editing. Highlights the visual awesomeness of the show and the kickassery of the characters. So fun.

At My House(s); Big Love; by [livejournal.com profile] ohvienna
I never thought a dance video could be done to this song, but the many talents of miss [livejournal.com profile] ohvienna have proven me so very wrong. Holy awesome. Reminds me how much I love this show and is just fun to watch. Check it out.



FIC
a map of the falling sky; lost, claire/jack; by [livejournal.com profile] angela_weber
Just a really sweet and powerful claire/jack fic. The ending is just perfect. Really beautiful scene laying she's done here. Go read. :)





If you take the time to watch or read any of these recommendations, please feedback the artists/authors/creators. [Not just me.]

→ Speaking of the lost finale, my friend Paul and I were talking about how I was unhappy with the outcome of the sideshow and he told me I had to "think of it as poetry" more than a linear story or a tv show or anything else. I have to say, that helped a bit... but not entirely. Still. It's a good suggestion. I thought I would share it for those still hung up on it as I am.

→ I'm playing around with Adobe InDesign right now and can I just say what a pain in the neck it is? After using photoshop for so long, InDesign makes the most simple of tasks seem complicated. I realize it's just another way of doing things, but the learning curve is a bitch.
