Not actually dead!

I didn't mean to disappear, I swear it. Finals week was rough on me, because I hadn't been to school in so long I'd forgotten what is was like, and then my mother had a couple of medical things that needed doing, so we decided to take care of that while I'm on summer break.

Here, have some art recs:

Moments Between Waking by [personal profile] keelywolfe [The Hobbit; Bilbo/Thorin, adult]

This is part three of a series; if you haven't read the other two, they are pretty flawless. This one is also fantastic, and bonus points for a spot-on Balin cameo.

break me like a promise by [personal profile] honey_wheeler [Game of Thrones; Jon/Sansa, adult]

Most Jon/Sansa fics hinge on a Targaryen reveal, where they get married after Jon's true parentage is discovered and build a relationship while working through the weirdness from being raised as siblings. This takes it in a different direction; Jon and Sansa have been married a few years when they find out Jon is Ned Stark's bastard after all, and they have to decide how to move forward.

Feelings-wise, that first piece of Hobbit art is pretty rude, to the point that when I first saw it I screamed NOPE NOPE NOPE and tried to cover my monitor with my hands, despite how beautiful it is. I said on Tumblr last night that I don't think I'll live to see the third movie, because the fandom is going to kill me before time with a cleverly-deployed gifset about the heart and loyalty of Durin's sons, or whatever. I feel like that fanart has justified my predicitions, just bury me in black.

Insatiable by [livejournal.com profile] rewrites24 [Harry Potter; Remus/Sirius, Regulus/Remus/Sirius, adult]

Look, Regulus/Remus/Sirius is the crack OT3 of my soul. And no one ever writes it, which saddens me deeply, let me tell you. This is wonderful, and bonus points for it being Remus' idea. Well, the threesome is Sirius' idea. Regulus is Remus' idea.

For Those Who Cannot Sleep and And No Rest Shall Ye Find by [personal profile] keelywolfe [The Hobbit; Bilbo/Thorin, adult]

These are hot and angsty and sweet, and Bilbo is delightful.

Mine Over Kingdom and Treasure by [personal profile] victoriousscarf [The Hobbit; Fíli/Kíli, adult]

This is also hot and angsty and sweet, and it jabs my possessive/jealousy kink in all the right places.

The Lion and His Hound by [personal profile] queenklu [The Hobbit; Fíli/Kíli, Fíli/Kíli/Thorin, adult]

Things I never knew I wanted until I was in the middle of reading it: Kíli is basically a life-ruiner, and has no idea.

I bring recs, in the usual array of fandoms.

Ficses:

Where The Heart Has Been by [livejournal.com profile] youremyqueen [Game of Thrones; Jon/Stannis, adult]

Many ASOIAF fans -- myself included -- think Jon will survive the mutiny at the Wall, simply because the plot isn't finished with him yet. This fic basically presumes the opposite; Jon does survive, but the plot doesn't really care. He doesn't get the Wall back, or fly into the sun and become Azor Ahai, or bump into Dany and her dragons. He's just living, only he doesn't really know how to do that without some sort of duty driving him. Stannis is absolutely glorious in this; he has no time for Jon's shit, because his life has been a huge ball of suck since before Jon was born.

Tea and Anarchy by [livejournal.com profile] irisbleufic and [personal profile] eldanis [Good Omens; Aziraphale/Crowley, adult]

In which Aziraphale and Crowley retire to Jasmine Cottage and open a tea-house, and everything about it is perfect. The tea descriptions alone are worth the price of admission, never mind that every single word of this is fantastic.

Icebound by [personal profile] pherede [The Hobbit; Fíli/Kíli, adult]

So, one day I was browsing the Fíli/Kíli tag at AO3 thinking 'I hope there's hypothermia fic where the warming process results in frottage that's half desperate and half guilty,' and THEN THIS HAPPENED. It's everything I've ever wanted -- belivable hypothermia, smoking hot porn, beautiful language, and tons of emotion packed into a small space, and the underlying idea that Fíli followed Kíli into that crevasse in the first place because he intended to die with him, as it should be.

Also, two hilarious The Hobbit fics, both of the AU persuasion:

Love and Hate and Coffee in the Time of Smaug by [personal profile] themostepotente [Thorin/Thranduil, PG]

This is a coffee shop AU. Also, it's apparently all my fault. SORRY I'M NOT SORRY.

Loyalty, Honor, Heart by [personal profile] leupagus [Bilbo, Thorin, misc Dwarves, PG]

This is a College/Frat AU. I can't even explain it, except to say that it's so perfectly hilarious I just about died.

LET'S TALK ABOUT THE HOBBIT SHALL WE?

I know, I'm terribly behind the times. I've been waiting to make this post because I was supposed to see it again this afternoon, but my plans fell through, so. Review ahoy.

cut for nonsense )

In short, I loved it dearly. I can't wait for the other two movies, and I'm now slow-burning in my desire for PJ to get the rights to The Silmarillion. Even if they only did the exciting bits -- the creation, Fëanor and the Silmarils, the Fall of Gondolin, Thingol and Melian, Beren and Lúthien, the downfall of Númenor -- it would be about 12 hours worth of movie, and I'd still watch all of it.

The movie release has caused an uptick of Tolkien-related stuff on my dash, so I have some art recs for you.

Three Absolute Favorites:

Thorin, King Under the Bombur by [personal profile] humourlesspoppycock [Bofur, Bifur, Bombur, Thorin]

This is the dwarfpile I was denied in the movie. I have no regrets.

Oakenshield is just a toy to them by [personal profile] piiib [Thorin, Fíli, Kíli]

Allow me to do a bit more dork math here: At the start of the book, Thorin is 195, and his nephew's Fíli and Kíli are 82 and 77. He would've been about 40 in human years when they were toddlers, which has given me a soft spot for Thorin playing Grumpy Uncle to Fíli and Kíli as ridiculously adorable and round-faced dwarf children. TURNS OUT I AM ACTUALLY MADE OF MARSHMALLOW IN THE MIDDLE. WHO KNEW.

Durin Family by [personal profile] piiib [Thorin, Fíli, Kíli]

This is more Grumpy Uncle Thorin with Tiny Fíli and Tiny Kíli. SORRY I'M NOT SORRY.

Numerous Other Things, Also Awesome:

Thorin, My Lord, by [personal profile] piiib [Thorin, Kíli]

Bilbo keeping watch by [personal profile] berendoes [Bilbo, Thorin]

Glóin and family by [personal profile] bridgioto [Glóin, Glóin's wife, Gimli]

Total Bros by [personal profile] ravenclawsdiadem [Bilbo, Bofur]

Untitled by [personal profile] spader7 [Bilbo/Thorin, G]

Untitled by [personal profile] spader7 [Bilbo/Thorin, G]

Untitled by [personal profile] rad-i-cal [Bilbo/Thorin, G]

I came out of the movie kind of shipping Bilbo/Thorin, which was really unexpected. I ship LotR characters all over the place (Frodo is my fandom bicycle, no regrets), but I never really went there with The Hobbit, I think because I read it so young. I kind of want to search AO3 for fanfic, but I'm afraid it will hurt me in the childhood.
