sophinisba: Wee Gwen admires wee Merlin's magic! (gwen merlin by el_jamon)
Whelp, time to do another recs post but I haven't read anything but that one Merlin fic in weeks! However also I was realizing that when I recced the fic Exiles a few posts ago I forgot to mention the great Art for Exiles by [archiveofourown.org profile] DYlogger/[livejournal.com profile] dylogger. This art has the same things I loved about the fic -- the complicated mix of relationships among the OT4 and the feeling that it's its own fantasy world and slightly less connected to Merlin the TV show than most fanfic and fanart I consume. My favorite of the pieces is the one of ARTHUR AND GWEN DANCING because the COLORS and the sweep of her skirt. <3 <3 <3 Also if you scroll down through this art you will get an idea of what the character death warning on the fic is about.

So since I wanted to mention that I figure I should also tell you about some other fanart I have recently <3ed. This is pretty much all stuff I've seen on Tumblr (which I've been using semi-regularly for the past couple months even though I still don't get Tumblr at all) so if you're following me there you've probably seen these already and if you're not into Tumblr you might not know what to do with these links. Also one of the things I don't get about Tumblr is whether any of these arts have titles and it's possible that I'm not understanding who actually drew some of them so if you notice that please correct me. /o\ Anyway:

SOME OTHER MERLIN ARTS:
-My new friend [livejournal.com profile] pktsknd made ot3 on a lazy afternoon for my birthday last month!
-She also made ot3 for Mirror, Mirror, one of my favorite art pieces from this year's [livejournal.com profile] summerpornathon
-knight Morgana and queen Gwen by [tumblr.com profile] kosmonauttihai
-GWEN/MORGANA MERMAIDS which as far as I can tell is by [tumblr.com profile] niunae but like I said Tumblr confuses me.

HARRY POTTER:
MANY YEARS AGO like maybe in 2007 or something there were a lot of discussions about racism in fandom that I lurked in kind of obsessively and I think that was where I came across the idea that from the descriptions that JK Rowling gives of Hermione it's totally plausible that she's black. It hadn't occurred to me at all before (I saw the first movies before I started reading the books and anyway I'm like most white people in that I tend to assume book characters are while, though I'm working on that.) So I've sort of had that in my head ever since and I think I wrote one or two fics where she was a minor character and in my head she was black but I didn't actually write that out or talk about it, and I only ever saw one or two pieces of fanart following that idea UNTIL RECENTLY and now they're all over and it's awesome! You can see a bunch of fanarts as well as some meta and cosplay and other great stuff by searching for the tag black-hermione. For example:
-"smol-squad" by [tumblr.com profile] dellbelle39
-Ron meets Hermione by [tumblr.com profile] refrigerator-art
-Hermione spelling her hair by [tumblr.com profile] drea-arts2

BROOKLYN NINE-NINE
-Amy Santiago and Rosa Diaz star in their own 60s teen detective series by [tumblr.com profile] celestedoodles

So what have you been up to? / Major life changes? Same old same old?

Stressed about work (for no real reason tbh, just bad feelings), but things are pretty good on the home front. Tomorrow we're planning to buy a tree!!

What fandom are you in/do you spend most of your time in?

MERLIN.

Where do you hang out online?

Still mostly just hang out on Twitter, and for the last month or so I've also been checking in intermittently on Tumblr, but I would still say (no matter how much people explain it to me) that I don't really *get* Tumblr. I've checked in at the [livejournal.com profile] merlin_writers chat room a few times and might get more into that, idk. I was sad when [livejournal.com profile] summerpornathon and the Gluttony chat room slowly emptied out.

What are you reading?

A really long Merlin series that I will talk about in another post since I think I'm about to sign up for Rectober.

What are you watching?

Excited about the new seasons of How to Get Away With Murder and Brooklyn Nine-Nine. Also this week I enjoyed two season 2 episodes of Elementary and might eventually catch up with that.

What are you making?

I have a good assignment and I think a pretty strong bunny for [livejournal.com profile] merlin_holidays but haven't actually put down any words yet. I have intentions of making some podfics and recs.

What are you squeeing about today?

Got through another work week intact oh yeah. Also ran for several minutes (not continuous) this evening.

If you could rope old fandom friends into a new fandom, it would be...

To be honest I wish someone could rope me into a new fandom but nothing seems to stick. Mostly I just love Merlin. Oh but I listened to some Hamilton this week and like I don't think it's going to become my new fandom but I like it and am supportive of people getting into it, if that makes any sense.

I am happy I was able to contribute something to the fourth annual Awesome Ladies Podfic Anthology!

Awesome Ladies Podfic Anthology IV cover with rainbow colored silhouettes of six fans

Look at that awesome cover art by [livejournal.com profile] bessyboo! Thanks to mod [personal profile] klb and everyone else who helped make this 10-hour, 78-fandom monster. Also I just realized as I was getting this post ready that I must have submitted a file with an extra ten minutes of dead air and junk on it, so special thanks and apologies to whoever had to deal with that. And special thanks and hugs to [personal profile] growlery for her lovely, gentle recording of my old Eowyn/Faramir ficlet There's Another Dance.

Reader's notes: A few weeks ago I was thinking it would be nice to continue my tradition of posting femslash podfic at Christmas, but this was the pairing I really wanted to read and I could not find any. Then this past Saturday [archiveofourown.org profile] MoreThanSlightly posted this delightful PWP, and today there are sixteen new B99 fics for Yuletide including a healthy proportion of Amy/Rosa. Merry femslash everybody!
