Title: Diplomacy
Rating: R (Steve/Tony)
Summary: Most of politics is masturbation.
Warnings: None.
Notes: This is in the "Commander Steve/Director Tony" vein; while they were never in those positions concurrently, it's become a bit of a tumblr trope.

Diplomacy )

Title: Solarium
Rating: R (Steve/Tony, but the rating is mainly for violence)
Summary: If people would just stop making problems for Director Stark, Captain Rogers wouldn’t have to beat them to death.
Warnings: Violence, gore, extreme dysfunctional codependence, murder
Notes: The idea is not mine -- it comes from askjxc on tumblr, who suggested the premise in this comic.

Solarium )

Title: The Redeemer
Rating: PG-13 (Steve/Tony)
Summary: Angels and demons aren't meant to be together, but Steriel and Tonoth have never been ordinary.

Title: The Tin Box
Rating: PG-13 (all images are worksafe)
Summary: Jack goes down in history. And he has the photos to prove it.
Author's Notes: Thanks to Gypsy, Foxy, Amandr, Nick, Claire, Spider, C, and Thad for providing photos, inspiration, and encouragement (AND BETAS, JESUS). I know not all of these manips are perfect, but I learned a lot while doing them. If you click on each photo, there's a link to the same photo at my gallery, with commentary on my process and my thoughts. Some are more sublime than others.
Warnings: None.

For those just joining us, TARDIS Big Bang is a fic-and-art festival where writers submit a fanfic of 20k words or more, and then artists illustrate or vid the fic. You can find a more complete linkslist over at Copperbadge, but if you just want to find my fic and art they are located here:

Title: Sing Morning Out Of Night
Fandom: Torchwood, New Who, Sarah Jane Adventures
Rating: PG-13 (mostly for dark themes; no explicit sex)
Summary: A strange deck of Tarot cards, a dying TARDIS, and UNIT's invasion of a coastal Welsh village lead Torchwood to investigate the disappearance of the Doctor, with some help from Sarah Jane and Luke Smith. This is a new incarnation of the Doctor, however, and none of them are prepared for what they find as they unravel the mystery.
Warnings: None.

Back Cover by [ profile] mizz_destiny. (slightly spoilery, this one)

Title: The Rules of Being A Godson
Chapter One: Things You Can't Do At Hogwarts
Fic by [ profile] copperbadge, art by Cara, who used to be [ profile] elaboration but I'm not sure she is anymore, we've lost touch.
Rating: PG-13
Summary: Teddy Lupin never gets too close or feels too much; his godfather's son never does anything else.
Warnings: None.
Notes: This arose while Cara and I were capslocking over the final Harry Potter book; she said she wanted to draw Teddy and ship Teddy/James. I said if she drew it I'd write it, and you see before you the result. Thanks to Simon, Heidi, and Judy for betas as well!

Someone must've recc'd Cartographer's Craft recently, because I've had a flurry of comments about it in the past few days. One of the new readers, [ profile] neth_dugan, kindly made an extremely beautiful mock book cover for it -- I love it, though possibly my favourite part (I realise this makes me a design geek) is the subtle map-drawing designs in the background.

If you'd like to leave a comment on it, please do so here, so that the artist will get the notifications.

[ profile] callista_mythol has also made two lovely book covers!

[ profile] hidden_gems recently re-read Cartographer's Craft and sketched up a lovely Young Sirius from the story. She's given me permission to share, so I thought I'd post it here. It links to a slightly larger version at my scrapbook page.

Hope you like it as much as I did! His grin is fantastic, I think. :D

Art post!

These have been stacking up a bit in my inbox, so I'm making up for lost time. :D The images are awesome but large, so I've lj-cut them. Behind the cut we have Hedwig and Glastonbury, Remus and Sirius, and Harry's Hilarious Waffle Flail!

Also, [ profile] johanirae has done an illustration from Dresser, Ianto helping Jack on with his coat. It's a pretty unique style for Torchwood fanart; very much what a manga of Dresser would look like, I imagine. :)

On Storytelling:

Fanfiction is a way of the culture repairing the damage done in a system where contemporary myths are owned by corporations instead of owned by folk.
-- Henry Jenkins

Life is very short. We die on the march. But there is nothing outside the march so nothing can be lost to it. The missing plays of Sophocles will turn up piece by piece, or be written again in another language.
-- Tom Stoppard

Life does not cease to be funny when people die any more than it ceases to be serious when people laugh.
-- G. Bernard Shaw

A good story should provoke discussion, debate, argument...and the occasional bar fight.
-- J. Michael Strazynski

Here's how to become a great artist. First, get miserable. Misery drives you to become a great artist, but the art does nothing for your misery, which drives you to drugs, which makes you a lousy artist.
-- House M.D.

Humans? They're long gone. Vanished. Extinct. They only exist in stories.
-- Ferngully

Anton Chekov, who was a doctor, said, "Medicine is my wife; writing is my mistress."

Se non e vero, e ben trovato. (Even if it’s not true, it’s a good story.)
-- Italian Proverb

The recipe for becoming a good novelist is easy to give, but to carry it out presupposes qualities one is accustomed to overlook. One has only to make a hundred or so sketches for novels, none longer than two pages but of such distinctness that every word in them is necessary. One should write down anecdotes every day until one has learnt how to give them the most pregnant and effective form; one should be tireless in collecting and describing human types and characters; one should above all relate things to others and listen to others relate, keeping one's eyes and ears open for the effect produced on those present, one should travel like a landscape painter or costume designer. One should, finally, reflect on the motives of human actions, disdain no signpost for instruction about them and be a collector of these things by day and night. One should continue in this many-sided exercise for some ten years; what is then created in the workshop will be fit to go out into the world.
-- Nietzsche

The thief. Once committed beyond a certain point he should not worry himself too much. Thieving is God's message to him. Let him try and be a good thief.
-- Samuel Butler

What is written without effort is generally read without pleasure.
-- Samuel Johnson

Same story, different versions, and all are true.
-- POTC: Dead Man's Chest

I am a humble artist
moulding my earthly clod,
adding my labour to nature's,
simply assisting God.
-- Piet Hein

Every archaeologist knows in his heart why he digs. He digs, in pity and humility, that the dead may live again, that what is past may not be forever lost, that something may be salvaged from the wrack of the ages.
-- From "The Testimony of the Spade"

Reading maketh a full man; conference a ready man; and writing an exact man.
-- Francis Bacon

It is better, of course, to know useless things than to know nothing.
-- Seneca epistles 88 45

When asked how she acquired her knowledge of science, Octavia Butler replied, "I read."

Imagination is more important than information.
-- Albert Einstein
