Why this piece is awesome: Elementary the fandom, like Elementary the show, is full of what some actors call "walk-and-talks". Here's a cute one featuring rare pairing JoanBell,

Why this piece is awesome: Well, um. It's DEREK'S SAILOR SENSHI TRANSFORMATION. (Although, perhaps regrettably, there's no actual sailor suit involved.) Super awesome.

I think there's a rule out there somewhere to the effect that every fandom must have its Sailor Moon fusion (and I've had more than a few discussions about Scott McCall being a Magical Girl), but this is quite probably my all-time favorite example. It's beautifully drawn (mmm, line weights and spot blacks), and I love the little crossover details (Derek's claws appearing where the nail polish sequence would have been, his leather jacket being created out of the ribbons!). Even the panel layout and sparkle placement work really well. PRETTY WOLFIE SAILOR DEREK.

Incidentally, this is the last of my Teen Wolf recs for the timebeing, but I'll be starting on Sailor Moon tomorrow! ;)

Why this piece is awesome: This is a gorgeous portrait of Steve in the leather-jacketed WWII Cap outfit he wore when he went after Bucky's captured platoon in The First Avenger. The detail and coloring is just great, and I love his bashful expression.

Why this piece is awesome: Adorable cartoon about, well, what the subject line says. Bucky's protectiveness and lack of tolerance for Steve's lack of self-preservation is nicely done here.

Why this piece is awesome: Urk! - it's almost the end of August and I realized I haven't posted any pics of Mako yet. So here's a lovely and original painting. I really like the criss-cross effect with the lines, looking like light or reflections from water.

Why this piece is awesome: There's something so messy and so elegant about this, all at once. I love this kind of sketchy-but-still-finished look. The composition's great, too, and their faces are very expressive. In general, I'm really into the whole "queen/princess and knight" trope you see in a lot of Allison/Lydia fanart ... this might be my favorite of the bunch.

I wasn't up to posting about my perfect copy fic yesterday (the anime reviews I had in my dreamwidth autosave from a few days ago) since I wasn't feeling fully coherrant and also... It can sometimes be awkward trying to think of words on remixes to begin with, but when I know exactly who wrote for me (*waves*) because it went to the pinch list and as I was one of the two mods handling pinch hits, it starts to feel a little like... A performance art? Because I know, and they know that I know. IDK. If it was the original assignments it would have been able to blur in my memory. BUT. THAT SAID.

I really, really enjoyed the remix to my work Failure to Communicate. I think Failure to Communicate is one of my best works in KnB, it's also a piece which has some stories hinted at in the background as the tale is told, so I knew that there was a pretty good chance that it would be remixed and have been thinking about/curious how someone else would complete their take on it.

Communication Failure (The Duty of Candor Remix) (1870 words) by Anonymous
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Kuroko no Basuke | Kuroko's Basketball
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Himuro Tatsuya & Midorima Shintarou
Characters: Himuro Tatsuya, Midorima Shintarou
Summary:

Midorima becomes Himuro's doctor and also his friend.



And basically - I think they did a really good job! XD It's got Midorima and Himuro friendship! And it fills in the little gaps that Himuro wasn't saying in his emails in the original (it's actually fairly close to the background I had in my head), and just *loves*.

I'm still reading through the works, but there's some excellent pieces throughout - http://archiveofourown.org/collections/perfectcopy/works

Why this piece is awesome: It still cracks me up every time. This was one of the first pieces of Teen Wolf fanart I saw, when I got into the show back during Season Two! The loose, cartoony style fits perfectly with the goofy, frenetic subject matter, and it reflects my sense of the weird unbalance in the cast of the time: a pile of kids and, sticking out like a sore thumb, this hulking adult werewolf who was all mixed up in their drama (or more accurately, they were all mixed up in his). Things felt more like wacky hijinks than everyone's-(really)-gonna-die, back then (ah, nostalgia). The title's perfect, and so is Stiles's face.

Perfect Copy Fics are up - some really great works are included too: http://archiveofourown.org/collections/perfectcopy/


A series that I finished:
Golden Time - This is a soap opera, college, slice of life, romantic comedy. Banri Tada is first year law student at a private law school. Due to the after-effects of a fall from a bridge shortly after his high school graduation, he has lost all of his memories prior to the accident (retrograde amnesia).


I thought this was going to be yet another pattern of me watching a (possibly harem?) romance series staring a guy, and slashing it, (and I was slashing this one for a while - there was some /delightful/ fanservice for my slash ship) but the het romance eventually won me around at the end. ^___^

I really enjoyed the way the characters grew in the series and the way little clues near the beginning turned out to be significant - and the romance was developed - not just "they are now in love for reasons".

A serries that I'm watching:
Sabegebu: slapstick parody series, about the survival game club. Somewhat surreal at times (there's a yellow "platy", of which was originally described as a duck ("Uh huh. I didn't think ducks had tails like a beaver", said Qem.)

I'm surprised by how much I'm enjoying this series as I originally thought it was moe-bait, though the anime self-describes itself as shoujo (although IDK, it also warned me not to take anything the anime series says as pretty much "you'll be laughed at if you try to apply knowledge from this series in the real world".)

The other reason why I'm surprised I'm enjoying it, is because usually I'm not a fan of slapstick comedy, but I think it helps that all of the characters are fairly unrepentent assholes and give as good as they get* + the types of humour that I do like, such as the 4th wall breaking, word plays and sureality moments. ^.^;;

*Yakitate Japan, for example, really went down hill for me when Kawachi basically became permanent butt moneky and never got a chance to get his own back / moments to shine.


A series that I'm stalled on:
Hoozaki no Reitsu: - the only reason I haven't finished it, is I haven't been able to get hold of the last couple of episodes. This series is really funny! It's a supernatural dark comedy, made up of short stories, set in Japan's hell (which as the opening explains "Japan’s Hell is a multi-section Hell. All together it has 272 sections!" ) although there is the occasional "representative from European hell" and they also get to go to Shangri-la sometimes.

The main character Hoozaki, is the first aid to King Yama, is definitely recommended for those who have a competency kink, he is very... blue oni type, being calm, sadistic, and brutal at keeping things (King Enma, handling staff shortages (due to the population booms in the mortal world) in line/under control, while still taking time to enjoy the finer things in life like enjoying cute animals (he goes to Australia and cuddles a Tasmanian devil, ahaha, it's so adorable even if there is like... no way you'd really be allowed to do that). :P As well as growing goldfish (that is not a typo). ^.^;
