Why this piece is awesome: This is an excellent, strong painting of Archie, looking moody and haunted. I really like the muted colours that fit the mood, and the 'tangled' texture and brush strokes. Click for the full effect.

Tassel earrings made with seed beads. There are seven strands per earring, making them heptapods like in the movie "Arrival"!

It's time for our regular reccer recruiting post, and to look ahead to the next month. So far we have ONE volunteer reccer who signed up for May with this fandom:

* Yuri on Ice ([personal profile] ceares)

So while we already have a few recs to look forward to in May, it would of course be awesome if we had some 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 only ONE reccer has volunteered for June, 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 May, June 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 April. Since the general prompts don't seem to work as inspiration, I've decided to stop adding them, but to keep the open reccing period in case anyone wants to slip a rec in, without having to come up with three others for a fandom. However the recs 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.)

A circuit board belt

I love making things from circuit board. I love the way it looks, and as a material it's very versatile: light and strong. It can be sawed into any shape, sanded, and drilled. It is also often thrown away and so it can be easily obtained for free.

Here's a leather belt that I covered in pieces of circuit board. I used pop rivets to fasten the pieces. Of course, I had to take all the components off the board first.
After I was done I covered the leather up with tape and then spray-varnished the circuit board; it made things nice and shiny and it also prevents lead getting on your skin. Yes, sometimes there's lead in solder. Better safe than sorry.

Click makes big.
 
I made this as a gift for a friend and after it was done, I got so jealous that I had to make a second one for myself. The newer one has sea-blue circuit board and I wear it almost every day.

Bonus cat picture! Here's the belt being modeled by one of our cats.

Critical Role Fic: "Research"

Title: Research
Fandom: Critical Role
Rating: Gen
Wordcount: 944
Characters: Vex, Cassandra, background Percy/Vex
Spoilers: through Ep. 94. Set during the one-year break, written before we know what will happen during that time.
Notes: Written for my [community profile] getyourwordsout bingo card, specifically this photo.

Also on AO3.

The Castle Whitestone library was beautiful, and more than a little intimidating. It was rare for Vex to find her way here without Percy, and on those few occasions she was never quite certain where to begin. But today he was engaged in his workshop -- aiding Taryon in his efforts to recreate Doty -- and so Vex had come on her own, determined to muddle through as best she could.

Sunlight streamed in through the high windows, and the lanterns had already been lit, so it was both brighter and more cheery than Vex had expected, and soon she discovered the reason: Cassandra de Rolo, sitting in the plush window seat, a large volume balanced open in her hand. Vex started to back away, but Cassandra looked up, and smiled. "Ah, Vex'ahlia." She set a bookmark in the book before snapping it shut. "What brings you here?"

'Oh, you know. Nothing in particular. Just wondering what's here.' )

So, I just moved over here from LJ.

 

I usually use Dreamwidth for roleplaying purposes, but after the....shall we say....shenanigans that Livejournal has been doing as of late, I decided it was time to pack my things and move.

 

 So....hi...?
