Coming up in September:

If it has fans, it has a con or call for paper this month–scifi, horror, Joni Mitchell, and more.

A researcher studying kink memes is asking for your help.

Plus, it’s Hobbit Day and Force Friday!

FIC LINK: Bedside Manners.
AUTHOR LINK: [ profile] serpenscript | Fic-journal at IJ: [ profile] serpens_fic
RATING/WARNING(S): G | set partly during the seventh book
WIP?/WORD COUNT: one-shot | ~ 2,000 words
MAIN CHARACTERS: Poppy Pomphrey, Minerva McGonagall, Luna Lovegood

FIC SUMMARY: Poppy Pomfrey liked to sing. It was a little known secret, because although she indulged in singing quite frequently she very rarely gave anyone the chance to hear her sing. To put it kindly, she was tone deaf; to put it bluntly was to say she sounded like a hippogriff caught in a harpy's nest.


This is a wonderful character study of Poppy Pomphrey. I love the setting during the seventh book, love her friendships, and she is such an amazing character.

FIC SUMMARY: Warning: Side effects may include insomnia, drowsiness, headaches, dizzy spells, fainting fits, hysteria, ennui, apophenia, hallucinations, seizures, amnesia, comas, death, and slight nausea. Safe when used as directed.


Oh, this is horrifying and heartbreaking in the best way. I haven't been able to forget this fic since I first read it - such an amazing interpretation of the canon and how things could have been.

Why this piece is awesome: Ending this month of OITNB with a great drawing of the gorgeous Alex. Love the detail in her hair and tattoo, and the texture of the shirt. An excellent likeness as well (I always comment about that as I'm crap at likenesses!)  Enlarge for all the details.

And here's the final one. As I said yesterday, LOTS of featured recs to be had, and most of the latter half of the bunch are longfic.

The TPP could be a very negative treaty for fans, but it’s not the only worrisome copyright development out there:

As an aside, I'm sekritly impressed with how well my book photos in the last two posts turned out! A photographer I am not, but apparently sometimes the stars align, or something. (Who would've guessed that the key to good book pics would be black bedsheets + 2 dead bulbs in the light fixture?)

More fannish excitement!

I'm sure we've all had this experience: You're reading a work of fan fiction and enjoying the heck out of it. Then.... boom; a sudden loss of characterization.

Okay, here's the second part. You may notice that this post only has one highlighted rec whereas tomorrow's post will have LOTS. I could have gone in an arranged them so that they were more evenly spread, but to be honest, I don't have the energy. So, enjoy them! They're a muddle, as is now tradition.
