Athelas

I did a quick digital type treatment/fanart for [personal profile] astolat's Thor fic Athelas! I just really wanted to see Thor as a frost giant.





Okay, back to work!

The Adventures of Shirley Holmes, by Johanna Watson

There is so much right with the idea of a Sherlock Holmes double genderswap, right? Sherlock Holmes's misogyny makes much more sense as Shirley Holmes's bluestocking/early feminist impulse; Shirley Holmes's skill for disguise comes from needing access to places women can't go.

Perhaps Shirley shares quarters with her dearest friend Johanna Watson, who, as a source of supplemental income, writes semi-fictionalized accounts of their adventures solving mysteries around London--with their names changed a bit, of course, and their genders switched because it would be scandalous otherwise. But perhaps Johanna, in the course of one of their mysteries, decided to accept Mr. Morstan's proposal; Shirley, of course, feels betrayed.



One of the things I love about the movie is that it's the male version of my favorite and least favorite story: "We Were Best Friends But Then She Got Interested In Boys And I Got Left Behind". I can't tell you how much I hate this story, and yet how tremendously compelling it is? And bringing it back to femslash/girl-BFFs makes it much more poignant for me. (Actually, the femslash version is even more depressing: We Were In Love But Then She Wanted To Get Married. To a Man." Blegh.)

It's hard to get across the sense of "Watson" without the mustache, haha, sorry. I gave Johanna fake sideburns using ringlets at least. (Note that Shirley is wearing the matching skirt to Johanna's jacket!)

Fanart: "Try Again," Holmes/Watson



Under an LJ-cut because it is slightly NSFW. )

I know I said the Sherlock Holmes movie came off as The Gay Love Story of Holmes and Watson, but upon reflection, Sherlock Holmes '09 could also be the Depressing Comedy of Holmes Learning To Let Go Of His BFF Watson Who Is Growing Up And Getting Married or the Depressing Tragedy of Holmes and Watson In Tempestuous Secret Gay Victorian Love And Denial. Also depressing: They Were Once In Love But Now It's Over And They Have To Split Custody Of The Dog And Holmes Is Just Being A Jealous Ex And Needs To Get The Fuck Over It Already. Though it might be a very uplifting sort of story if you see it from Watson's point of view: Watson Breaks Free From A Co-Dependent Relationship With Holmes, Finally, Thank God.

That's a lot of capital letters.

Fanart for Due South

I have returned bearing vastly improved drawing skills learned from My Other Life (which is going great, by the way). My friend's been trying to get me into Supernatural, which inexplicably made me feel an intense wave of nostalgia for Due South instead. So here's RayK and Fraser, my One True OTP (One True One True Pairing?):

OK Computer screenshot ♥

My thesis is due in a week and a half (oh god! and I have to restructure the whole thing!) and I have been reading people's crackpot theories about prosody nonstop. I NEEDED A BREAK. So I took one and quickly drew/colored this for [livejournal.com profile] cesperanza who asked for John in his pink paisley shirt:



Possible mild spoilers for OK Computer by Speranza??? )

Story is here!

I will definitely get my [livejournal.com profile] paintedspires entry in soon, btw. ♥ The thesis is due May 2nd, so I should be semi-free after that.

Girl's Poker Night

(The success of this picture kind of depends on your LJ friend's page background, since it's a transparent PNG, so I hope it doesn't look too weird. If it does, just, um, click on the comments link and it'll take you to the comment page, which is a default style? D:)

I present to you Girl's Poker Night... except with the boys... except they're girls:

The Athosian Constellations

Hiiiii. I have art for you. ♥



I bet Athos has weird mythological animals too. I mean, come on, a horse with a goat's beard, a lion's tail, and cloven hooves? A lion with a human head and a scorpion tail? A racoon dog body with the head of a monkey, legs of a tiger, and a snake instead of a tail? Unbelievable. :3

But I realized afterwards that you'd probably have to be on a certain planet to be able to see a certain configuration of stars. Oh well?

Wallpaper for [community profile] 14valentines

I have wide hips, small breasts, plump arms, and a tummy, and (and, not but) I like how my body looks. I was really into classical paintings--Bouguereau in particular--when I was a kid and the tummy, the arm fat, the small breasts, the wide hips, they're all there. I found my own body reflected in their beauty; the painter thinks they're gorgeous and it shows.

I think all women are gorgeous--for their bodies and their voices and their minds. I hope it shows.

A cutey wallpaper, for you! )

But it's under a cut for now! )

Again I say, if you haven't been reading Mina de Malfois, you are missing out: [livejournal.com profile] minions_de_mina. (It's not really a WiP, more serial fiction, but the entire first season is done, and it is fantastic!)

For [livejournal.com profile] uselessplayback at [livejournal.com profile] sgart_exchange, and it's so late (I'm so sorry!) that it's holiday-themed. Again, so so so sorry!



And for the rest of you--or rather, for the rest of you who know Katamari Damacy, here is my Christmas card for you! Happy holidays. ♥

On the mainland

Dear Anonymous LJ Fairy,

Here is an SGA picture, with fruit, for you! You didn't say which fandoms you were in, so I went for SGA.



Dear everyone else, sorry if I've been awful about commenting lately. I'm still having issues with my laptop, and I've only got access to the internet through the school computers.

Two AUs for [profile] fish_like_bikes

ORCHESTRA AU!

cut for table-stretching )

ALL-GIRLS HIGH SCHOOL AU!



My prompt was: Total AU (Contemporary setting-- no Stargate, no Atlantis, but the characters exist and meet each other anyway)

I also wanted to do an equestrian AU and a gardening AU and a pop star AU but ran out of time. I'll see if I can get another done tomorrow morning; if not, well.

Cowboy!Sheppard



Cowboy!Sheppard was inspired by [livejournal.com profile] pentapus's suggestion and [livejournal.com profile] trinityofone's A Rush and a Push and the Land Is Ours. I ended up going off in a slightly different direction, but [livejournal.com profile] trinityofone's story is fantastic and I highly recommend it if you haven't already read it.

Lex Paper Doll!



For [livejournal.com profile] astolat's Moving On.



PDF

The pdf file is for printing out and assembling by hand. If you don't have Adobe Reader, which you will need if you can't open the file, you can download it. It's big but it's useful--not just for this file but for a lot of documents. I didn't include supporting tabs because I haven't been able to print these out myself and test the best positions for tabs, but you can see how the tabs would work in this paper doll. The order of the outfits goes: Almeracian, Toga-like, Idarian, K'tlak, Khitanwe, Xakanxa, Trwi (3 pc), Wedding Tuxedo.

Special notes for the Trwi outfit: Cut a slit in the headdress at the widow's peak line, like in the preview picture, and put Lex's head into it. Tuck the boa around his shoulders, so that the side parts overlap his outfit.

Condensed instructions: Download this file and print it out. Read the special notes for the Trwi outfit. Cut supporting tabs according to this picture.




PSD

The psd file has layers so that the outfits can be assembled on the computer. If you don't have Photoshop or PS Elements, you can open it in GIMP, which is free. The outfits are all on their own, named layers; turn the visibility/opacity on and off to play, and move the layers around if you like.

Special notes for the Trwi outfit: Note that there are two layers--the boa and the headdress--with (top) and (bottom) in the names. They match up so that they can overlap other layers. If you want the boa and the headdress to work right, you have to turn both the (top) and the (bottom) layers on or off.

Condensed instructions: If you have Photoshop or something that can read PSD files (or if you download GIMP), you can play with this set directly on the computer. The outfits are on their named layers; turn the visibility/opacity on and off to play. Read the special notes for the Trwi outfit.

Both of these are at 200 dpi, in full color, and approximately 7" x 9" (print them out on 8.5" x 11" sheets, preferably using nice, firm paper like bristol). If you want a special black and white version to color yourself, send me an email and I will send it to you special!

Any questions? Ask me. :)



Preview outfit! )
