Well, I managed to see last night's episode of Game of Thrones.

you're a pretty lad )


no, seriously, she was fucking fantastic )

other stuffs )

this cut contains my weekly quota of capslocks about theon greyjoy )

Onto fandom things -- over at [livejournal.com profile] asoiafkinkmeme, I have been lamenting the complete and total lack of Benjen fills. Evidently, the squeaky wheel gets the porn: [livejournal.com profile] honey_wheeler wrote some awesome Benjen/Catelyn last night, and [livejournal.com profile] workswithwords is writing me some Benjen/Qhorin right this very minute!

One thing [livejournal.com profile] workswithwords and I have discovered since the kink meme opened is that putting the various Stark men in random sexual situations can be difficult at times, because they always want to spend two or three paragraphs worrying about their honor, instead of doing something sensible like taking off their pants. Apparently, Benjen is not an exception to this rule.

chatty chatty bang bang )

I promised myself no more hysterical fangirl posts until I finished this fill I'm writing, but then I opened Tumblr and these pictures of Kit Harington and Richard Madden happened.

unbelievable flawlessness inside )

I got to watch Game of Thrones tonight! Some of it, anyway. By the time I found a decent live stream that wasn't buffering incessantly, the episode was already thirty minutes in, but I'm not complaining, because GAME OF THRONES.


capslocks )


proof )

Anyway, I pretty much loved it. Except, THEON. UGH. I would not have minded more Theon.

cut for excessive and faintly ridiculous fangirling )

Also, this:

I think I could, too. I definitely could read an entire book of Renly and Littlefinger trolling each other.

recs post!

Beautiful fanart I have looked at today, part 876987689609:

(Once again, all distressingly work safe)

Harry Potter

Lestrange by [personal profile] amarantbus [Bellatrix]

Best Person in the World by [personal profile] chashirskiy [Ron/Hermione]

James and Lily by [personal profile] adorelulu [James/Lily]

The Win by [personal profile] viria13 [James/Lily]

Look at Me by [personal profile] nami86 [Snape, Lily, Harry]

Hunger Games

Good and Safe by [personal profile] whatever_lu [Katniss, Rue]

Katniss by [personal profile] raviolillama [Katniss]

A Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones1

Lannister Gold by [personal profile] arkoniel [Jaime/Cersei]

Rhaegar and Lyanna by [personal profile] arkoniel [Rhaegar/Lyanna]

Lyanna Stark by [personal profile] riavel [Lyanna]

Robb Stark by [personal profile] thephoenixprod [Robb]

King in the North by [personal profile] riavel [Robb]

Beyond the Wall by [personal profile] evolvana [Jon, Ghost]

Ygritte by [personal profile] lilyhbp [Ygritte]

Ygritte by [personal profile] riavel [Ygritte]

Jon + Ygritte by [personal profile] monizc [Jon/Ygritte]

You Know Nothing, Jon Snow by [personal profile] marinelli [Jon/Ygritte]

My ASoiaF shipping tendencies are really in display in this one -- Jaime/Cersei and Rhaegar/Lyanna are probably in my top five. As far as Jon goes, I ship Jon/Robb pretty hard, and I also like Jon/Sam2, but I love, love, love Jon/Ygritte. She was probably one of my favorite characters in ASoS, and by the time that book was over, I desperately wanted to read/write an AU where they went looking for Grendel's children instead of leaving that cave.

cut for more A Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones waffle, complete with Jon Snow meaderings, totally batshit Targaryen theorizing, and also some potentially spoilerish stuff for A Dance with Dragons )

1 I stole the first two from [personal profile] themostepotente, but they are so utterly gorgeous I figured they deserved a second look.
2 I really think I'm a Fandom of One with this pairing, but I don't care. My love for these two is pure.
3 Ironic, I guess, since his grandmother was a Targaryen.

When I woke up this afternoon morning, I intended to clean my house and tidy up my [personal profile] hp_beholder fic, so of course I've spent most of the day eating junk food in my pajamas and blinking at shiny things on the internet.

Thusly, I come bearing fic recs.

Harry Potter:

An Unexpected Gift by [personal profile] bethbethbeth [Snape/McGonagall, PG13]

This is absolutely delightful. The tone is almost playful, but also perfectly sharp around the edges, and Snape and McGonagall's dynamic is spot on.

The Hunger Games:

the war outside our door keeps raging on by [personal profile] novelized [Finnick/Gale, adult]

This is exquisite. When I finished it, I was incoherent for a good five minutes. All I could do was wave my hands around and think yes. this. forever repeatedly.


I also have some art recs, because I've spent more time on Tumblr today that I'd like to admit. I'm still not sold on it as a functional, interactive fandom platform, but I've decided it isn't completely useless, in a it is what it is kind of way.

Harry Potter:

Remus Lupin by [personal profile] sikuriina [Remus]

Regulus Black by [personal profile] viria13 [Regulus]

Best Feeling of All by [personal profile] viria13 [Harry/Ginny]

Hagrid by [personal profile] lightnightrains [Hagrid]

Hunger Games:

Girl on Fire by [personal profile] patsie [Katniss]

Katniss by [personal profile] mshah123 [Katniss]

At the Count of Three by [personal profile] eldeivi [Peeta/Katniss]

Game of Thrones/A Song of Ice and Fire:

Catelyn by [personal profile] aniaem [Catelyn Stark]

Jon by [personal profile] aniaem [Jon Snow]

Ned by [personal profile] cpatio [Ned Stark]

The Hound by [personal profile] cpatio [Sandor Clegane]

The Hobbit/The Lord of the Rings:
