I just discovered this artist on tumblr that does some really amazing things with light and shadow and colours. Especially the inktober pieces are haunting and beautiful, and I had to restrain myself from linking all of them. (There's a couple of nsfw steve/bucky arts on dorkbait's page - I didn't link them here, but just a heads up if you decide to browse.)

art recs. all steve rogers & bucky barnes. )

In other news, I signed up for [livejournal.com profile] rs_small_gifts, against my better judgment...seeing as i'm modding [livejournal.com profile] rs_collab, and I've prep work to do. OH WELL. Sign-ups for small gifts are still open until tomorrow (and claiming opens tomorrow!), so head on over and sign up? It's a low-key (and not anonymous!) holiday themed exchange fest for Remus/Sirius, which is usually absolutely wonderful. Sign-up numbers are looking a little low, so consider joining us?

I have some ideas for what I'd like to do for this fest, though I'm struggling to decide between teddy/james and hugo/scorpius. i may just have to do both.

This lovely thing is today's offering from smoochfest:

Author: Anonymous
Songspiration: Somebody to Love - Queen
Title: Somebody to Love
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco; brief platonic Draco/Astoria
Summary: Draco's life after the war is quite different than it used to be. When he finds himself cursed, with little hope for lifting the spell, he sets out to make the most of the time he has left. Getting to know his Aunt Andromeda and his young cousin Teddy feels like a good thing to do, even if it can't help him in the long run...or can it?
Rating: PG
Warning(s): Angst. Definitely angst. Mentions of minor character death that have occurred before the start of the action. Small amount of violence. Musings on death and dying, as the prompt warrants.
Epilogue compliant? Nope, definitely not.
Word Count: ~31,400

Why you want to read this: a lovely throwback to H/D fics of old, where cursefics were plentiful (and often heartbreaking). it being smoochfest, the ending can of course only be happy, about which I'm very happy :D it's sweet, low-key (not on the angst) and had me smiling a lot.


also - yesterday i was looking at reclists, and stumbled over this old classic (which also happens to have been pretty formative for me - it was one of the first fics i read for this ship). my heart made a noise, i made a noise, and subsequently i spent most of my evening re-reading it, until i had to get some sleep, and then finished it today. i'm not sure that I can explain why i love this series so much, i just know that it has always done something to my heart that i can't quite explain. i just love it so, so much. it tugs at me and reduces me to this non-person who makes noises at the screen.
so, in case anybody else feels like being reminded that this fic exists, here's your reminder.

i signed up for [livejournal.com profile] rs_games!!!!!! YOU SHOULD TOO I'M SO EXCITED I'VE BEEN WAITING FOR RS GAMES SINCE LAST RS GAMES BC I COULDN'T DO RS GAMES LAST YEAR BC I WAS BUSY WITH LVL2 AND JUST RS GAMES RS GAMES

ok recs. because i've been reading stuff :D and i was actually thinking about recs, as in - the type of recs i usually make. because i've been reading a lot of filth lately as well, and... well. the sort of stuff i read because FIC YAY and the sort of stuff i read because 'dammit i just want filthy porn and all of it right now for the next five days and nothing else' is very different, and i never rec anything from the latter category. <.<

so uhm basically i was just wondering if other people also make that distinction? i mean, i think the reason why i haven't ever recced anything from the second category is because i don't really need the world to see what kind of stuff i like when it's my animal brain taking over? to put it mildly. hmm.

so anyway, have a bunch of recs. :D maybe i'll even rec you some filth most of these are short because longfic is still kind of hard to come by when it comes to steve/bucky. which makes me a little sad, but on the other hand i guess i'm re-learning to enjoy shorter fic out of simple necessity.

RECS AHOY )
