FANDOM: Midnight Is A Place – Joan Aiken
FIC LINK: The Curse of the Blue-Eyed Tiger
AUTHOR LINK: [archiveofourown.org profile] usernamegoeshere
RATING/WARNING(S): G | None
WIP?/WORD COUNT: 2707
MAIN CHARACTERS: Lucas Bell, Anna-Marie Murgatroyd, Julian Oakapple, Eulalia Murgatroyd

FIC SUMMARY: Anna-Marie's new friend stirs up unhappy memories for Lucas.

RECCER'S NOTES: This has just the right feel for an Aiken fic, which is no small achievement in itself – full of small, vivid details, and the things they reveal, and the power of a story that explores some of the sadness of these characters’ past (in this case, particularly Lucas), together with the humour of Anna-Marie’s endless pragmatism, and their unconventional new life together as a found family, post-book. It’s lovely.

Content Notes/Warnings: blood popsicles
Medium: digital painting

Artist Website/Gallery: on DA
Why this piece is awesome: Gorgeous work, and a stand-out scene from the movie, at once touching, intense and gruesome. Click to enlarge - it's worth seeing the details close-up. The eyes, the way Eve's cheek distorts around the popsicle, the trickles of blood. The colours are amazing as well.

Why this piece is awesome: I utterly love the woodblock print-inspired art style and the efforts to make the ninjas look more like they might have been part of this world's history. I love the entire series, but this piece is my favourite.

Why this piece is awesome: I love this sequence of works. It's such a wonderful take on how the Girl's upbringing by the Killjoys might have looked like.

The settings are the familiar messy and colourful ones from the videos. Every time I look I discover new details among the battered but carefully hoarded bits and pieces of a lost civilisation.

What really makes these stand out however is the obvious delight the Killjoys seem to take in taking care of the Girl. The tenderness and love they show towards her is incredibly heartwarming.

I haven't been doing any 'serious' art lately. Anything I do has to take me less than fifteen minutes, lol. So here, have some of my more random sketches that didn't take me very long at all.

Child of Light fanart. I LOVE THIS GAME.

FANDOM: Doctor Who
FIC LINK: Nine Hours, Give or Take
AUTHOR LINK: Bad Dickens
RATING/WARNING(S): All ages | None
WIP?/WORD COUNT: 2457
MAIN CHARACTERS: Donna Noble, Tenth Doctor

FIC SUMMARY: Donna in the toilet, the Doctor in the broom cupboard. Exciting? Oh, yes.

RECCER'S NOTES: During Partners in Crime, Donna and the Doctor spent about nine hours in their respective hiding places. Nine hours. Donna and Ten. Yes . . . How exactly did they pass the time? Bad Dickens has the answer here, and the result is far more entertaining than a tale of a toilet and a broom cupboard has any right to be.

RATING/WARNING(S): Teen | Character death, AU
WIP?/WORD COUNT: 567
MAIN CHARACTERS: Killian Jones | Captain Hook, Rumplestiltskin | Mr Gold

FIC SUMMARY: Captain Hook achieves his life's goal.

RECCER'S NOTES: So, I was trying to work out which of AstroGirl’s OUaT fics to rec, and then decided not to settle for one but to go for two brief but excellently sharp ficlets, this first one exploring the inevitable consequences of what would have happened to Hook if he’d got what his revenge – something that didn’t seem to have crossed his mind…

RATING/WARNING(S): Teen | Canon character death, mentions of blood/violence

MAIN CHARACTERS: Widow Lucas | Granny

FIC SUMMARY: She's only ever wanted to keep her granddaughter safe.

RECCER'S NOTES: And this one powerfully fills in what Granny was thinking during “Red-Handed”. AstroGirl fully captures her character and deepens it in a way only implied by canon, as Granny regrets her mistakes.

Twisted Island

The playground of the forgotten goddess.



Toto, this doesn't quite seem like Kansas anymore. The island is far from the world you remember. This isn't your home, this isn't even Earth from as far as you can tell. But why? How did you get here? It seems the whims of an unknown and forgotten goddess has decided to make you her plaything, dragging you from your world and timeline and placing you on an inescapable island. Welcome to Twisted Island, where anything can happen and it usually does.

The island changes with the mood of the goddess. It’s her playground and you are one of the very many toys in it. But you’re not alone. There are others stuck on the island just like you and if you’re lucky the goddess didn't just steal you away, but friends and family you know as well. Best idea though? Make friends, powerful friends. Make sure there are people to watch your back because when the island starts to change, you're going to need every little bit of help you can get.

Will you survive, or will you give up and break under the pressure? Apply and become one of the many playthings that the goddess loves to toy with on Twisted Island. Only canon characters are allowed. The game will start May 10, 2015. Go check out the Wanted Characters or Holds page and get your application in!


Game will start on May 10th. APPLY TODAY.

Content Notes/Warnings: genderbending (both Harry and Severus)

Why this piece is awesome: Even though Harry and Severus and genderbent, they both look like themselves. They also feel like themselves. I especially love their expression and how they turn to each other. There's a lot of tension.

It's time for our regular reccer recruiting post, and to look ahead to the next month. So far we have three volunteer reccers who signed up for June with these fandoms:

* Moomin ([personal profile] turlough)
* Outlander ([personal profile] mific)
* Stargate SG-1 ([personal profile] paian)

So while we already have some recs to look forward to in June, it would of course be awesome if we had more recs. There is still plenty of opportunity for you to jump in and volunteer to rec next month (or to convince your friends to do some reccing). And many cheers for all of our members who volunteer to rec, especially if you rec regularly. Your valiant repeat efforts keep the comm alive.

Looking even further ahead so far NO reccers have volunteered for July, so that month definitely still needs some love (and recs! *g*) too. So please consider reccing in a fandom of your choice, whether small or huge, and comment on the sign-up post and volunteer for June, July or even further ahead if you are so well organized, that you know your fannish interests and time commitments in advance. It's only four recs as a minimum, and you can rec any genre or rating. Or promote us to your friends or in your favorite communities so others do the work.

Open Rec Posting

The monthly open reccing period for all members starts now and lasts until the end of May. If you are looking for something to inspire you, the prompt for this week is "History", but that's totally optional for the recs. However they do still have to conform to the usual rec format and follow the rules for what is allowed to be recced here.

(Comments here are disabled, because I want to bundle volunteering in the sign-up post so that nothing gets lost, and you can see the list of claimed slots there too.)
