FANDOM: Harry Potter
FIC LINK: The Right to Choose.
AUTHOR LINK: [livejournal.com profile] kennahijja
RATING/WARNING(S): PG-13 | warnings behind the cut )
WIP?/WORD COUNT: one-shot | ~ 4,000 words
MAIN CHARACTERS: Hélène Goyle (Gregory Goyle's mother); other characters mentioned

FIC SUMMARY: There is more to the identity of pure-blooded wizardry than the excesses of the Dark Lord and his Death Eaters. But the obligations that come with old blood are not always less painful…

RECCER'S NOTES:

This is a wonderful and chilling character study of Greg Goyle's mother. Since we don't really know much about her beside the fact that she must exist, she is mostly an original character. This doesn't matter though, for in this story we get to know her very well. She is sympathetic without being entirely likeable. I feel for her though.

It is a dark story, with dark themes, and it quite chilled me.

Title:  Life after the Wreck
Author: Kady the Red Panda
Fandom(s): Spirou et Fantasio
Pairing(s): established Spirou/Seccotine, but gen for the most part
Rating: K
Warning(s): character death
Summary: Prompt: fast-forward. The aftermath of a deadly accident, a few months in.
Word Count: ~670
Disclaimer: Only Souris and the actual words are mine
Other tidbits:First prompt fill of the year. This is a bad ending to the kid AU, I suppose. I've imagined some really dark routes as well as some great and/or super fluffy ones, because I'm horrible like that. Also I wanted a little more Spirou-Souris interaction, so this is one way, I suppose.

I've gotten my DA:I replay through Skyhold, which of course means that I've now played Champions of the Just. And so the Dragon Age writers continue their trend of setting up a world where odds are most people will sympathize with mages, but actually providing a better-written and more satisfying experience when you choose to work with templars. Spoilers beyond.

Spoilers are behind the cut. )

Why this piece is awesome: I love the almost abstract quality of this work. The way the almost random-seeming areas of light and dark and varying shades of grey coalesce into a portrait of a very thoughtful Sixth Doctor.

I finally stopped forgetting to register for FogCon today. I don't know why I didn't just do it at the end of the con. Means I missed all the early bird rates but oh well. I also got a hotel room and raised my hand to be on a couple of panels, both fanwork-related. Even if I'm not a panelist, I hope at least one of them makes it onto the track -- as far as I know, there's never been a panel about fanfic and/or transformative work at FogCon, so it's high time we had one. (Yes, I realize I could have just proposed one. But I never came up with a good angle. So I'm glad someone else finally did that for me.)

Anyone else going?

Why this piece is awesome: I love the layering with different levels of focus, and the dreamy, numinous quality of the light. Very appropriate for the Sandman, as is the simple colour palette.

Into the Underdark: soliciting ideas

Hi all,

Still DMing 4e, same homebrew world though with a different party, with a different short-term goal. Circumstances are sending them to the Underdark to rescue a kidnapped mage.

So, this is my opportunity to create yet another culture, this one generally ruled by evil. I did, however, want to put my own stamp on things.

Since I know plenty of players who will play a Drow who is of good alignment or at least neutral, I wanted to work that in. At the same time, I envision a culture that is very much every sentient being for his or herself. So, I'm including some of the following elements and I'd love to have more.

  • Very mercenary attitude. First and foremost, "What's in it for me?"
  • Strength is power. The more tattoos and piercings you have, the more you can tolerate pain, therefore you are seen as stronger.

  • Helping the weak is seen as weakness
  • Extreme classism
  • The law is to be followed yes, but it is also to be bent into Alexandrian knots to make it serve one's purposes

  • Money is also power, so greed isn't a sin, it's a necessity

  • There will be slavery. There isn't much that is more evil than that.


  • I'm going for a lawful evil vibe, which I think can be scarier than chaotic, if I do it right. People with their own code of conduct, of honor, even. Methodical, intentional evil. People who would care about loyalty, tradition, and their own version of order. People probably very comfortable in a clearly-defined hierarchy.

    It occurs to me that I may be taking on too much.

    There will be all races, because I find that infinitely more interesting.

    I'd love some input. Have at it!
turlough: The Seventh Doctor lifting his hat ((dr who) the doctor says hello)

Medium: pen?

Why this piece is awesome: I love this portrait of the Seventh Doctor. There is something very reassuring in the way he seems to walk his on road, unperturbed by any monster trying to hinder him. His calmly smiling face and the carefree swing of his scarf and umbrella further add to the sense of confidence and cheerfulness he seems to exude.

I'm also full of admiration for the skillful way the artist balances light and shadow and the way the picture goes from empty whiteness at the top to stark blackness at the bottom.
