RIGHT SO FIRST: INCEPTION FEN. INCEPTION FEN. LISTEN UP.

Okay, I know I rec [livejournal.com profile] wheres_walnut's art like, all the fucking time, like every time she posts art, I know I do that, I really do. I AM AWARE. But the thing is I do it because it is, every time, blow the fuck away good, and oh my god, you guys. She is doing an art WIP (an ART WIP!!!) over at the kinkmeme where Arthur & Eames are fellow commuters on the Metro North and, you guys, Jesus Christ. Look, I know fuck-all about art aside from WOW THAT'S SO GORGEOUS DJHASFJKSDF but the thing I always love love love about Walnut's art is how goddamn real it feels, her use of color to set the mood, this vivid expansive beyond-what-I-can-articulate scene she manages to build. Even if you are not in Inception fandom and this, to you, would be two random dudes on a train, GO LOOK. THEY WILL BE THE MOST BREATHTAKING TWO DUDES ON A TRAIN YOU'VE EVER SEEN.

/embarrassing Walnut (SORRY NUT, I CANNOT CONTAIN MY LOVE AT ALL).

And, ahahaha, okay, second: so, when I first started posting fanfiction, I said to myself, "Jizz. Jizz. You can feel free to pound out whatever nonsense you like, so long as--and this is very important--you never write fic set in or around Cleveland, Ohio." This is for a lot of reasons, the predominant one being that I grew up/live here and thus have deep fear of self insert, though there's also the fear that my unlikely but undeniable love for this place will grip me so furiously that I'll never be able to set anything anywhere else ever again. Whatever the reason, "Don't write fic about Ohio" has been the "TOUCH NOTHING BUT THE LAMP" of my fanfiction career, and I have observed the rule faithfully.

But, see, tonight [livejournal.com profile] sheafrotherdon posted this vid about Michigan and, because I grew up in Ohio, Michigan makes me think of University of Michigan makes me think of Muck Fichigan makes me think of the Ohio State Buckeyes makes me think of buckeye candy makes me think of my childhood makes me think of home, and so my brain...went there. It went there, and to continue the Aladdin analogy this idea is like that giant ruby and I am Abu and somewhere my common sense is screaming NO YOU ASSHOLE TOUCH NOTHING BUT THE LAMP DO NOT WRITE FIC ABOUT OHIO, but I. I can't help myself.


What is happening to me right now. For serious.


So under the cut are some random context-free snippets of Danny and Steve in Northeast Ohio because of [plot device I haven't worked out], in the hopes that it will get the fuck out of my system. This is not fanfiction, it is 1500 words of fucking about on the internet. THAT'S TOTALLY DIFFERENT. I'M NOT TOUCHING THE LAMP. IF I DON'T GIVE IT A TITLE IT'S NOT REAL. Oh god.

SO, SOME THINGS:

1. TSN RPS rec: Stay Awake When I'm Asleep, [livejournal.com profile] passe_simple, Andrew/Jesse, 36K. So, I am: not in this fandom, never going to be in this fandom, generally not even a fan of RPS (aside from [livejournal.com profile] robanybody's Scotty/Alex fics, which you should read if you haven't already, and which don't count, because I'm pretty sure [livejournal.com profile] robanybody is a member of the 5-0 cast and it's all real). And, actually, in this case I'm just going to go ahead and copy/paste the flailing review I wrote on my Delicious:

THIS IS THE BEST BABY!FIC EVER WRITTEN. NOTHING WILL EVER BE BETTER. I DON'T EVEN LIKE RPS. I DON'T EVEN LIKE *THE SOCIAL NETWORK*. Seriously this author, I will read anything she ever writes, I would read it if she wrote 500,000 words about paint drying, I WANT HER TO WRITE NOVELS AND NOVELS OF ORIGINAL FICTION SO I CAN BUY THEM ALL, OH MY MOTHERFUCKING GOD THIS IS THE BEST THING EVER.

...I mean. I liked it. A little. *cough*

2. H50 rec: You guys, [livejournal.com profile] dogeared just posted a ficlet that hits all my buttons. Seriously, I just--I mean, it's [livejournal.com profile] dogeared, so obviously the language is exquisite, but it's also the kind of thing you read and think wow, I feel good down to my toes, how did she manage to give me that in less than 500 words, what. Go forth. Be enriched. Trust me on this one.

2. A question: Okay. Guys. Um.

It's [livejournal.com profile] iam_space's fault, because she said a thing and then another thing and whatever, I'm working on a ridiculous cracked out Hawaii 5-0/Princess Bride AU, I don't want to talk about it. Except that I do, sort of, want to talk about it, because I'm going to have to do POV shifts to tell this story, IT IS THE ONLY WAY I HAVE NO CHOICE, and, uh, I don't. Do that. Ever. So I am thinking of breaking it up into chapters except that like...it's a ridiculous crackfic what the hell...and I am thinking of just using pagebreaks except HOW DO I DIFFERENTIATE BETWEEN POV SHIFT PAGEBREAKS AND REGULAR PAGEBREAKS, THIS IS WHY I NEVER DO THIS.

So: a poll!


[Poll #1722233]

POLL OVER, THE END.
gyzym: (Hai girl hai)
1. LAST NIGHT THERE WAS A DUDE NAMED EAMES ON WHITE COLLAR. REALITY IS STILL A LITTLE HARD TO SORT OUT.

2. There will be much, much Steve/Danny fic tonight, I am finishing it up right now, IT IS COMING, YOU GUYS, IT IS COMING.

3. Apparently a member of my family signed me up for JDate? Which is deeply hilarious on a lot of levels, but especially when you consider that I spent today flirting with a guy who had, you know, visibly just celebrated Ash Wednesday. My money is on my aunt being the culprit, but only time will tell. I WILL SOLVE THIS MYSTERY IF IT KILLS ME.

4. Speaking of things that kill me, [livejournal.com profile] miznarrator made A FIFTY FUCKING SONG MIX OF AMAZING WOMEN ROCKING IT THE FUCK OUT. Seriously, just amazing, you guys, SO MUCH BRILLIANT MUSIC, check it out post-haste.

5. And finally, on the topic of awesome women who rock, a conversation that proves my little brother the rabid Beatles fan is the coolest eleven year old in the history of eleven year olds:

The Beatles' song "Get Back": *plays on the radio*
Burrito: Wasn't this song about George and Paul and Ringo being mad at Yoko Ono? That's why John's not singing in it, right?
Me: That's the story, anyway. It can be hard to know what's true with that kind of thing.
Burrito: But everyone blamed her for breaking up the Beatles, right?
Me: A lot of people did that, yeah.
Burrito: But she didn't...she didn't really do anything to them, did she? She just fell in love with John and he fell in love with her, and then people started hating her? And singing angry songs at her and stuff. I think that would suck.
Me: I think it probably did suck, little dude. I think it probably still sucks. But Yoko's a pretty awesome lady--she's a musician too, did you know that? And she does all kinds of stuff for charity, and even though she had some awful things happen to her--
Burrito: Like John dying, right?
Me: Yeah, like John dying. But you know, even though that happened, and even though there are still people that hate her, she donates time and money to help people, and to speak up for people who can't speak for themselves. I think that's pretty cool, you know?
Burrito: ...can we turn this song off? I don't really want to listen to it anymore.
Me: Yup.
Burrito: I think hating Yoko Ono for something she didn't do is really stupid.
Me: I think you're the smartest eleven year old ever.
Burrito: Well, I try.
gyzym: (AREDBLUSH DREW STEVE/DANNY)
RIGHT, SO THIS IS A POST CONTAINING STUFF AND THINGS BUT NO TERRIBLE SOUTH PARK JOKES? Sorry about that; I crack myself up at 3 in the morning. Mostly I'm trying to distract myself from the Hawaii 5-0 fic that is going to get finished tomorrow instead of tonight, because it's 15K already and the penultimate scene is like, the most important in the whole story, but my brain is too fried to write it properly right now.

So, first I have a rec, and that is: Don't Carry It All, by [livejournal.com profile] passe_simple/[livejournal.com profile] harriet_vane. It's...okay, wait a second guys, hear me out...it's Jesse Eisenberg/Andrew Garfield. As in, it's TSN RPS. BUT IT'S AN AU! AND IT DOESN'T...oh my god, you guys, this is seriously one of the best stories I have read in years, and I do not read in this fandom or have any interest in it AT ALL. It just, it reads exactly like original fiction, because really in many ways it is original fiction. Basically Jesse and Andrew are just regular guys and not celebrities, and they meet through eHarmony and it's just this gorgeous heartwrenchingly human story of two people falling in love despite (and kind of because of) their neuroses, and how easy it is to fuck something up in trying your hardest and just, god. Really, really worth the read, guys. Really a lot.

Secondly, [livejournal.com profile] angelgazing, queen of my heart and all things brilliant, is HOSTING A MOTHERFUCKING HAWAII 5-0 CLICHE MEME. Fly over there as fast as your typing fingers can carry you, because, oh my god, all of the cliches are the best cliches, especially on a show where the leads are CANONICALLY FAKE MARRIED ♥ ♥ ♥

Thirdly, I have...um. Okay, so, sometimes [livejournal.com profile] two_if_by_sea and I bring out the worst in each other, right, and she linked me to this website you guys ALL HAVE TO GO TO called Better Book Titles. They give books better titles. It is the most hilarious thing of all time. NO, REALLY, LOOK:



BASICALLY, I SPENT LIKE AN HOUR TONIGHT LAUGHING UNTIL I CRIED. And when I, er, read the whole thing and got to the end we started retitling books ourselves because sometimes we're pretentious lit-nerd assholes? OR AT LEAST I AM, I CANNOT SPEAK FOR CATHY, SHE IS IN FACT A PEACH AND THIS IS NOT HER FAULT. And anyway, long story short, it somehow got around to plotting fucked up Nancy Drew porn and then I had to share it with everyone because there really is something wrong in my brain.

No, really, this conversation does get around to creepy Nancy Drew porn, kind of, ish )
gyzym: (Flowery neck)
THIS IS A POST RECCING VARIOUS THINGS THAT NEED RECCING, NATCH. (Sidenote: the other day my mother sent me a text with the word "natch" at the end, used correctly, and I was like, hey, where did you pick that up? "I made it up," she says. "It's an abbreviation for naturally!" WHAT EVEN.)

First and foremost, [livejournal.com profile] winterlive wrote Inception fic. It's called Get Lost, and it's 13K of Arthur genfic, and if you are one of those people who tends to read only within your pairing, I urge you--no, I implore you--to read this anyway. It is quite literally the best character study of Arthur I've ever encountered, and follows his journey across the country post-Inception as he ties up some loose ends and figures himself out. It's about growing up and going home again and not going home again and loss and strength and learning and who you end up being while you're not paying attention, and, oh, god, it's incredible. I just--you need to read this story, you guys. It's one of those that leaves you stunned and breathless at the end, that totally changes your viewpoint on the character while reinforcing it at the same time. SO. GOOD. Go forth and be amazed.

SECONDLY, [livejournal.com profile] angelgazing has made a post explaining what it is about Hawaii 5-0 that is so damnably addicting, because she's apparently not content with dragging just me into this fandom kicking and screaming. IT IS EXTREMELY COMPREHENSIVE AND VERY CONVINCING, but if anyone would like a quick and dirty summary of the show, my own is as follows:

-Steve's a ninja
-Danny's pissed
-THEY'RE SO MARRIED
-Jersey joke
-Hnnnnng Grace Park
-Hnnnnnng Daniel Dae Kim
-SERIOUSLY PLEASE JUST ADMIT THAT STEVE AND DANNY ARE MARRIED
-No understanding of or apparent concern about how laws actually work
-Jersey joke


I have had it confirmed by others that this is accurate. (Also over at [livejournal.com profile] angelgazing's journal is The Inception Anon Love Meme, which just fills me with warm fuzzies every time I look at it. ♥)

THIRDLY, [livejournal.com profile] emilianadarling, who is BEYOND AMAZING, did a podfic of my story Don't Feed Me, Seymour. For those of you keeping track at home, that was the one where Arthur is the worst cook ever--er, well, the one where Arthur is the worst cook ever that isn't part of domesticverse, I like that trope, okay??--and it is WAY, WAY, WAY BETTER as a podfic. [livejournal.com profile] emilianadarling's delivery is spot on and hilarious, and it's just awesome. I was grinning the whole way through in absolute joy and glee that anything I wrote could inspire something so fab. You guys should all check it out.

Finally, [livejournal.com profile] foxxcub's big bang is up, which, yes, I know that you know, and you probably think that I am biased because I beta read it, BUT WHATEVER. You still need to hightail it over to All the Rules to Break and read it at once. Serial killers and cops and the FBI and oh my god Arthur and Eames. The emotion is pitch perfect, the plot is a brilliant ride, do yourselves a favor and get over there post-haste.

OKAY, I'M OFF TO WORK ON THINGS that hopefully are not Hawaii 5-0 fic but probably will end up being Hawaii 5-0 fic anyway fml fml fml. I hope you all are having fantastic Thursdays :D
gyzym: (Flowery neck)
LOOK I HAD THINGS TO SAY AND SHIT TO DO, BUT EVERYTHING WAS PUT ON PAUSE WHEN [livejournal.com profile] onthecount DECIDED TO DRAW ANIMATED HIPSTER ARTHUR OH MY GOD.

Seriously I cannot get anything done but you guys all have to see this, it is so glorious on so many levels, THE WORLD NEEDS TO KNOW. ♥
gyzym: (Tom Hardy wants YOU)
EVERYONE STOP WHAT YOU ARE DOING AND CHECK THIS OUT AT ONCE.


[livejournal.com profile] harlequincepted[livejournal.com profile] harlequincepted[livejournal.com profile] harlequincepted[livejournal.com profile] harlequincepted


That's right, guys: an Inception Harlequin romance challenge, all for us. AND IT ISN'T EVEN MY BIRTHDAY. The hearts in my eyes, they are reaching epic proportions. I may need to be seen by a doctor.

From the comm:


There are three ways for you to participate:

- If you have a romance novel idea you want to write about/create art for, go for it! Let’s say you have that Nora Roberts’ book about the family of jewel thieves lying around in your attic, and you just can’t stop thinking how great it would be if it starred Ariadne and Yusuf. Have at it! Any genre of romance is fair game – contemporary, Regency, cowboys, paranormal… As long as it features sexy people falling in love, that’s fine!

- If you have your own "original" romance novel idea you’re dying to write, that’s cool, too! If you’ve been dying to write Arthur and Eames as rival scientists who fall in love (or rival bakery owners who fall in love, or rival evil counts who fall in love...), fantastic!

- OR if you’d like, we’ve collected some prompts! These are blurbs from the back of actual romance novels. You can use as much or as little of the prompt as you want. If, for example, the prompt is about a single mother of three who needs cash for an operation for the baby so she sleeps with her boss, and you want that to be Arthur and Eames minus the babies and operation, no problem! If you’d like to use one of the prompts listed below, drop a comment on this post and we’ll mark it as taken. (If they all get taken – eeee! – we’d be happy to go find more!)

THE RULES

♥ All Harlequin Challenge stories must be a minimum of 1,000 words. ART IS ALSO WELCOME!!

♥ When posting/linking your Harlequin Challenge story to the comm, please reference the prompt the story is based on OR the plot/romance novel summary you used.

♥ DEADLINE FOR CHALLENGE STORIES TO BE POSTED IS MARCH 6TH! AND VALENTINE'S DAY FALLS RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE! PERFECT TIME FOR ROMANCE FICS. :DDDDDDD


I am already working on a completely ridiculous COMPLETELY FUCKING RIDICULOUS story for this, because, um, it is the most awesome idea ever, basically. YOU GUYS SHOULD CHECK IT OUT: the post full of incredible prompts actually pulled from real romance novels ishere, or you guys can make like me and allow your brains to spin webs of brilliantly ludicrous cliches. EITHER WAY, I AM ALREADY STUPIDLY EXCITED TO SEE WHAT HAPPENS.

In conclusion: you know you want to do this. THIS IS SO HOT RIGHT NOW.

gyzym: (Red house)
So, uh, before I do anything else, I have AN ENTHUSIASTIC REC. The truly incredible [livejournal.com profile] wandrinparakeet did a fanmix for the domesticverse, and, just, YOU GUYS. This fanmix is just like. jdfdskf AMONG OTHER THINGS, ABOUT HALF OF THE SONGS ARE ON MY *PERSONAL* SOUNDTRACK FOR THAT VERSE, and the rest of them are INCREDIBLE, I've listened to nothing but this mix all day. I am just so flattered and so floored, and it really is some fabulous music, and she did gorgeous liner notes to go with and I am just. I AM A BALL OF LOVE. Trust me, GO DOWNLOAD IT.

And now for some information that I found extremely jarring, and some thinky thoughts about it!

The Year in Fic Meme! )
gyzym: (T.Hard w/ cig and skepticism)
First of all, MERRY/HAPPY, EVERYONE! Even for those of us for whom today is just a Saturday, albeit a Saturday when none of the stores are open :D

I was debating making a post about Chinese food and my family, but I have decided against it, largely because I had breakfast with my grandfather and my father and Burro&Burrito this morning, and it was literally SO MUCH LIKE AN EPISODE OF CURB THAT I HAD TO PINCH MYSELF. I can't even bear to relate it. There was arguing. And a few badly-landed penis jokes. And arguing. And a poor, hapless waiter who visibly regretted being employed at a Jewish deli. We tipped him heavily, but I doubt it eased the pain of having to listen to us very much.

Also also also someone wrote me an incredible Westing Game story for Yuletide!!! A Game of You, Theo/Turtle, and it's just excellent. EVERYONE WHO HAS EVER READ THE WESTING GAME SHOULD READ IT AT ONCE.

Now I am going to eat a piece of the amazing parve dobos tort the local Jewish bakery (ALSO OPEN CHRISTMAS DAY OH MY GOD BEST DISCOVERY OF MY LIFE) handily provided me this morning, and maybe take the plunge and watch the pilot of Hawaii 5-0, if I can find somewhere to...procure...it.

But first, a conversation about nothing at all that needs to be preserved for posterity anyway, even if it does make both me and Cathy sound more than a little bit like Pretentious Hipster Nerds....

YOU KNOW YOU WANT TO.
gyzym: (OMG TOM HARDY'S SMILE)
Okay look, [livejournal.com profile] angelgazing and I faffed about with some Oregon trail nonsense the other day, because we're crazy, and then THIS FANTASTIC AMAZING THING HAPPENED!

[livejournal.com profile] aredblush drew it. The Oregon Trail AU. She drew it, it is so beautiful and hilarious and oh my god Arthur and fdnsjkfdshfsbdhjfksd EVERYTHING IS AMAZING FOREVER. I CANNOT BEGIN TO EVEN EXPLAIN THE LEVEL OF ADORABLE/INCREDIBLE/FUCKING BRILLIANT. I LAUGHED. I CRIED. I LONGED FOR MY CHILDHOOD. I FELL IN LOVE WITH A SNAKE.

GO FORTH. BEHOLD THIS GLORY. You Have Died of Dysentery. EVEN THE NAME IS AWESOME.
gyzym: (jesus christ eames why you gotta be so f)
1) OH MY GOD YOU GUYS [livejournal.com profile] pennyplainknits made A PODFIC OF THE COFFEESHOP AU, and it is so so so so so so fucking excellent. I just. I can't possibly express my love clearly enough, but seriously, the podfic is WAY WAY WAY better than the actual fic, and everyone should be showering her with praise, because, oh my god, for serious amazingggggg.

2) The Inspiration Meme is still going strong and you guys are amazing and I am woefully behind on comments because, augh, REAL LIFE SOMETIMES HAPPENS TO ME, but dsfkjdskfjdsf so much win. A couple of random selections (but really GO READ EVERYTHING ALL THE POETRY ALL THE TIME):

A wonderful anon posted the poem Last Words, by Michael Symmons Roberts. Be warned, it is a piece about the 9/11 attacks and could definitely be triggery on that front, but just, god, so beautiful, so fucking heartwrenching. I cried, reading it, and have carried it with me all day.

[livejournal.com profile] earth_is_a_star posted Phillip Levine's You Can Have It, which I firmly believe everyone should read.

[livejournal.com profile] postcardmystery (who is, okay, one of my favorite authors ever and everyone should go read ALL OF HER FIC ESPECIALLY THE A/E FIGHT CLUB AU AND THE A/E WATCHMEN AU, THE END) wrote this gorgeous Siken inspired A/E story, which is just fucking excellent.

[livejournal.com profile] darchildre posted a number of poems, one of which is a Bill Holm piece that is truly exquisite.

[livejournal.com profile] snowdarkred wrote an adorable short A/E piece inspired by one of the gorgeous photos that's been posted.

[livejournal.com profile] chaoticallyclev posted some truly gorgeous original work, and [livejournal.com profile] illian did as well. SO AMAZING.

&hearts &hearts &hearts SO MUCH BEAUTIFUL STUFF REALLY YOU GUYS SHOULD JUST GO READ/VIEW ALL OF THE THINGS, THE END.

3) Okay, I know [livejournal.com profile] futureperfect already recced this one, but seriously, I am seconding the rec: [livejournal.com profile] shadesofbrixton's In Bocca Di Lupo. It's Inception/Alias crossover, and look, even if you've never watched Alias, even if you don't harbor a secret wounded unending passion for it that you never got over, even if you don't wake up in the night even now cursing J.J. Abrams, YOU SHOULD READ THIS FIC. GO GO GO.

4) I, um, signed up for Yuletide, which I had never done before, largely because despite a long time in various fandoms the name led me to believe that it was Christmas-themed, which, apparently, it does not have to be. *WAITS ON TENTERHOOKS FOR ASSIGNMENT*

5) LEBRON JAMES CONTINUES TO BE EVIL AND WILL ALWAYS BE EVIL, I AM NOT JUST LOOKING FOR AN EXCUSE TO USE THE "OH AND ALSO LEBRON IS A COCKSUCKER" TAG BECAUSE I AM STILL BITTER ALL THESE MONTHS LATER, WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT.
gyzym: (Tom Hardy wants YOU)
Okay so what this is, right, is ME POINTING TO ALL OF THE OH MY GOD WTF HOW SO AMAZING ART people have done to go with the coffee shop AU which, just, seriously, you guys. I do not deserve you. I DO NOT DESERVE YOU AT ALL FDFNDFJDNSFKLJSDNFJ. I said it to Aja last night and I meant it: I am so overwhelmed with love that I cannot even breathe.

1) [livejournal.com profile] sandrocks did this COMPLETELY GLORIOUS ARTWORK WITH ARTHUR AND EAMES AND FLOUR ASJDDSDKF. It is, seriously, so beautiful I could actually weep. And then she posted ANOTHER EQUALLY AMAZING PIECE in the comments and just. I just. Arthur is blushing and Eames and I just, I honest to god cannot even handle the amount of love.

2) [livejournal.com profile] pen_pistola drew this OH MY GOD SO ADORABLE scene with Eames and Arthur sharing coffee and brownies and I just. I cannot look at it without grinning, I want to write odes and sing terrible love songs completely off key to it and her and EVERY FANARTIST EVER, OKAY.

3) [livejournal.com profile] red_rahl drew CHIBI!ARTHUR AND CHIBI!EAMES WEARING THE BEANIEEEEEEEEE AND ARTHUR IS SITTING ON A MUFFIN AND EAMES IS LEANING ON GIANT COFFEE AND THE HEARTS IN MY EYES ARE ACTUALLY A MEDICAL CONDITION NOW, PEOPLE ARE STARING, AND THAT'S A LINK TO WHERE SHE POSTED IT IN THE COMMENTS OF THAT FIC BUT REST. ASSURED. THAT I WILL SWITCH IT TO A PERMALINK IF/WHEN SHE POSTS IT ELSEWHERE AND JUST JSFDFJSDKFDSKF.

4) [livejournal.com profile] jacquise, who is a barista in RL (and let's just take a moment, guys, to THANK ALL THE BARISTAS WHO KEEP US IN COFFEE, because for real they are the best people ever), ACTUALLY WENT TO WORK AND MADE ARTHUR'S LATTE. I just. I seriously did actually squee aloud when I saw it. Just, I just. Oh my fucking god, how did all of you fabulous people come to exist, was there some kind of like, did you just spring into existence to improve my life??????

5) [livejournal.com profile] xxdoublexx did DFDSKJFLSDFJKDSLFJ THIS AMAZING DRAFT THAT I CANNOT LINK YOU TOO BECAUSE SHE WENT AND LOCKED IT BECAUSE APPARENTLY "IT IS JUST A DRAFT" EVEN THOUGH IT IS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL DRAFT IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD. So this is basically a placeholder for the finished version.

ETA 11/5/10 OH MY GOD I AM THE LUCKIEST PERSON IN THE WORLD PEOPLE ARE STILL MAKING ART:

6) [livejournal.com profile] salvamisandwich drew THIS AMAZING VERSION OF THE HEAD MASSAGE SCENE. EAMES' APRON IS PAISLEY, YOU GUYS. It, just, and the expression on Eames' face and they both look so tired and it is JUST HOW I PICTURED IT BUT BETTER OH MY FUCKING GOD.

7) [livejournal.com profile] pearljamz drew ARTHUR AND EAMES AND ARTHUR'S LAPTOP and, you guys, for serious, the level of detail in this is stunning and the way they're looking at each other and Arthur, go at once, GO AT ONCE. AHHHHH ALL THIS BEAUTY IS SO OVERWHELMING I MAY FAINT.

8) [livejournal.com profile] sandrocks/[livejournal.com profile] onthecount PAINTED (DO YOU SEE THAT WORD, THAT WORD IS PAINTED, JUST IN CASE WE ARE NOT CLEAR THAT MEANS SHE PAINTED IT OH MY GOD OH MY GOD) a MOTHERFUCKING SMALL VICES BAKERY HOLIDAY CARD. I JUST. I CANNOT EVEN. I HAVE SURPASSED GLEE AND GONE INTO SOME KIND OF LIKE. STUNNED. AMAZED. FDSFJDSFDSFHDSJFDHSJFSDHF STATE.

9) leightonton over at deviantart drew ARAIDNE AND YUSUF AND ARTHUR AND EAMES and they are ALL so beautiful, all of them, every last one, but oh my god Ariadne especially. She, just, this whole thing, I seriously do know these are the most incoherent recs in the world but for serious, you guys, I am SO IN LOVE WITH EVERYTHING THAT I CANNOT EVEN EXPLAIN.

ETA 11/7/10: SERIOUSLY OH MY GOD WHAT HOW AM I SO LUCKY HOW IS THERE MORE:

10) [livejournal.com profile] xxdoublexx finished that draft I told you about, and also drew the scene with the BEER SINGING and and and and and THE MOST BEAUTIFUL DEPICTION OF THE SCENE WITH ARTHUR FREAKING OUT EVER EVER EVER, IT IS WAY BETTER THAN THE FIC AND IT WOULD BE A SHAME IF YOU MISSED IT. Seriously, it so gorgeous that I cannot even, you guys.

11) Guys. Guys. [livejournal.com profile] ravyn_ashling drew ARTHUR IN HIS OWN ADORABLE BEANIE, do I really need to say anything more than that?

12) [livejournal.com profile] norinoricat drew ARTHUR WITH THE BOX OF PASTRIES AND HE IS SO ADORABLE I CANNOT EVEN DSFJDSJFDSJFKDS.

SHOULD THERE BE MORE ART, I WILL BE ADDING LINKS HERE. IF I HAVE MISSED YOUR ART SOMEHOW, PLEASE TELL ME, ALTHOUGH BE PREPARED FOR ME TO JUST FALL OVER DEAD OF JOY. I SERIOUSLY DO THINK I AM GOING TO EXPIRE OF JOY. I LOVE YOU GUYS SO MUCH I CANNOT EVEN.

PLEASE TO BE SHOWERING ALL THE BRILLIANT, BEAUTIFUL ARTISTS WITH LOVE, Y/Y?

OKAY LOOK I RECOGNIZE THAT I AM BASICALLY JUST SHAMELESSLY SPAMMING YOU GUYS NOW BUT. BUT BUT BUT.

[livejournal.com profile] angelgazing wrote fic, and I just, I need you all to read it, okay? Because Arthur and Eames are at a fair and there are Ferris Wheels and A ZERO GRAVITY RIDE and deep fried beer and sunblock and just. Just. I have this thing, okay, about the way she does Arthur and Eames, about the way they are always such perfect assholes in love and there is so much JOY IN THIS FIC and HER ARTHUR VOICE and I laughed and I cooed and I SHRIEKED IN GLEE, OKAY.

I just, I mean, seriously. Even if you hate fairs and all happy things in the world, this fic is worth reading for the dialogue alone. THE DIALOGUE ALONE, YOU GUYS. OKAY, WELL, AND ALSO THE SHEER HILARITY. I mean, just, look, LOOK AT THIS BEAUTY:

"Fuck, fuck, you are demented," Eames tells him, shaking his head. He goes to take another step and falls into Arthur chest to chest, pushes him against the wall and holds him there with his weight. "My legs feel like jelly," he says, because he's an asshole who is never going to let Arthur forget the first time they slept together.

GO. GO FORTH AND ENRICH YOUR LIVES. GO FORTH ON MY WORD, FOR I WOULD NOT STEER YOU WRONG. DID I MENTION ABOUT THE DEEP-FRIED BEER? DID I MENTION ABOUT THE LOVE?

Ride On With the Lights On. Trust me.

SERIOUSLY. EVERYTHING IS COMING UP RAINBOWS. GO. LOOK. FEEL BETTER ABOUT THE WORLD FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE.

THAT IS ALL.

Okay, you guys, drop everything that you are doing at once and go read [livejournal.com profile] postcardmystery's sorry about the blood in your mouth {i wish it was mine}. It's an Arthur/Eames Fight Club AU and it's...just...it transcends description. I've been reading it in bits and pieces for days as she worked on it, and just hungering for more.

It reads like it's actually fucking Palahniuk. I am beginning to think she is actually Palahniuk. My love for Fight Club is unholy to begin with but she just takes it to a whole new...dkfsdjf. I apologize for my lack of coherence, but the elegance with which she takes the base material of both canons and weaves them together is...stunning. Starling. Otherworldly, even. No, really, look:

Arthur is Semtex wrapped in silk. Arthur is pearls over body armour. Arthur is the searing beauty of the atom bomb.

Arthur moves through dreamspace like the predator he is, slick and dark, all sharp lines and hard edges. Arthur kills like he has nothing to lose, because he hasn't.

Arthur doesn't have anything to lose awake or not.


Seriously, just. Just go read it, you guys. I do not even. Go.

THIS IS A POST ABOUT WEBCOMICS. BE WARNED.

Okay, so, there was this webcomic one time, right? And it was called Friendly Hostility and I read it OBSESSIVELY, because I was completely in love with the characters and the artwork and the dialogue and everything. I read it obsessively and then it ended, and the artist mentioned starting a new project and I, uh, kind of got busy and forgot about it. I had every intention of checking it out! I was going to be all over that shit! But I am easily distracted and I spend a lot of my internet time reading and writing fanfiction, and by the time FH ended most of my other favorite webcomics had ended too. As such, my morning "spend ten minutes clicking to check 12 different pages" ritual became a "spend two seconds reading the new Questionable Content" ritual, and my plans to get into this new comic fell off my radar screen.

BUT TODAY. OH, TODAY.

I got sick, which totally blows, and I was bouncing around the internet like you do, and I ended up at the main page for this comic called Other People's Business. And I was like, hmm, this art style looks very...familiar...OH MY GOD THIS IS THAT COMIC I MEANT TO GET INTO AND NEVER DID.

I spent two hours, guys. I read all of it, and it is so fucking good I cannot even. The artwork is glorious, the level of character development in each member of a huge ensemble cast is frankly ASTOUNDING considering the medium, and I am so full of joy and happiness that it totally makes up for this stupid 24-hour bug. I am excited for an update in a way I have not been since FH ended, and I recognize that this whole thing probably sounds fangirly and over the top, but YOU DO NOT UNDERSTAND MY JOY, OKAY??

EVERYONE GO READ IT. OTHER PEOPLE'S BUSINESS, RIGHT HERE. Seriously. It fucking rocks.

Oh my god, so, I got distracted by, uh, writing ridiculous crack and somehow forgot to POST AN ENTHUSIASTIC REC for [livejournal.com profile] jjgd's fabulous ARTHUR & EAMES & COBB PLAYING POKER ART. She drew it for me and I LOVE ITTTTT everybody CLICK AND COMMENT. CLICK BITCHES CLICKKKKKKKKK.

Uh, also, speaking of [livejournal.com profile] jjgd and ridiculous crack, we just had the following (admittedly paraphrased) conversation:

[livejournal.com profile] jjgd: Did you create the twitter btw?
[livejournal.com profile] gyzym: ...What twitter?
[livejournal.com profile] jjgd: The Shit Arthur Says twitter!
[livejournal.com profile] gyzym: THE WHAT NOW
[livejournal.com profile] jjgd: Yeah, I checked to see if there was one after I read the story.
[livejournal.com profile] gyzym: AND DISCOVERED THE ANSWER WAS YES???????

So, for the record, no I did not create it, but lolololol I AM VERY CURIOUS ABOUT WHO DID, AND MILDLY ANNOYED THAT IT DID NOT OCCUR TO ME TO DO SO, LOL. PLEASE TO ENLIGHTEN ME, INTERWEBZ! AND THE MYSTERY OF WHO DID IS SOLVED. Y'all should follow it, it's hilarious as shit.

In conclusion: SERIOUSLY EVERYONE GO LOOK AT THE ART.
