Snowflake Challenge, Day 12

In your own space, rec at least three fanworks that you think would make a good intro into XYZ fandom. Rec a fandom overview, a introductory picspam, stories that define and shape the fandom.


THIS POST IS ABOUT AIDAN TURNER'S FACE.

I'm pretty sure it qualifies as its own fandom at this point, and if it doesn't then it should, because he's basically hotter than the fucking sun. He played John Mitchell in Being Human and Kíli in The Hobbit. He was also in Desperate Romantics, which I haven't seen yet, but it's on my to-watch list, because I've been told he's naked through most of it.

I told [profile] irisparry the other day that I'd seen his face around Tumblr prior to The Hobbit, but I'd been actively avoiding Being Human and anything else he'd done because I knew that way lay madness. But then The Hobbit happened, and my love for Tolkien outweighed my sense of self-preservation, so.

everything about him is an outrage )

If you want even more of his perfect fucking face, check out [personal profile] fuckingyeahaidanturner and [personal profile] absolutelyaidanturner. There's also [personal profile] getinmypantsaidan, which hasn't updated in a year, but has 100 pages of archived posts.

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

you're a pretty lad )

YGRITTE YOU ARE A FLAWLESS, FLAWLESS INDIVIDUAL. ALSO AN EPIC TROLL. RENLY AND LITTLEFINGER HAVE NOTHING ON YOU.

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 )

shiny things.

I should be in bed, but I stayed up far too late last night, which screwed my sleeping scheduled.

Thusly, Tumblr. And thusly, picspam. With capslocks commentary.

Here, look at Gerard Way's face. You know you want to.

we all want to party when the funeral ends )

wow.

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 )

NGH. BOYS. STOP IT.

That awkward moment when...

...you realize half your OTP is also your fandom bicycle.

you must be tired, jon snow )

Here, have a picture of Richard Madden and Kit Harington looking super hot. Anyone with a Tumblr has probably seen it about 400 times by now, but I am posting it again anyway. Perhaps because I have a soft spot for plaid shirts and emo cardigans.

congratulations on your faces, boys )

I finished the archer's bows have broken pretty late last night -- I think I linked it on Tumblr sometime after 2:00 am, and shortly after that, I realized I need someone to keep me away from the Theon Greyjoy tag. I was kind of looking for .gifs of Alfie Allen having sex, but mostly what I found was PAIN IN MY HEART.

This post has been pretty useless so far, so. Have some recs:

every chorus was your name by [personal profile] honey_wheeler [ASoIaF/GoT; Jon/Sansa, NC17]

Remember my earlier conversation about Jon putting his face between a girl's legs? YEAH, OKAY. GUILTY AS CHARGED. Everything about this is delightful.

A Helping Hand by [personal profile] listedheart [Sirens; Ashey/Stuart, NC17]

If you haven't watched Sirens yet, you really should. It's only six episodes, during which everything is glorious and also Richard Madden is super hot. This fic was written for a porn battle, so it's mostly smut, but the smut is delicious.

A Friend in Need by [personal profile] listedheart [Sirens; Ashley/Stuart, NC17]

I think I've read this fic about five times in the last two days. I love it like burning. It's about Ashely and Stuart trying to navigate a Friends-with-Benefits relationship, even though Stuart has tons of issues and Ashley's pretty casual about sex in general. The peek into Stuart's ridiculous brain is wonderful, and everything Ashley does is hot. Bonus points for a spot-on Maxine cameo.

I've only been awake for three hours, but I would already like a do-over.

Highlights include an overly-religious mother, a teenage son who is completely out of touch with reality, an epileptic dog, the zit on the side of my nose that is making one entire side of my face throb, and the general misconception that I am the most qualified person to cook the ham.

I have nothing to say to any of that, except HERE IS A PICSPAM OF RICHARD MADDEN'S GLORIOUS FACE.

Highlights here include bedroom eyes, lip biting, .gifs of Richard breathing while shirtless, and also a video clip from that one episode in Sirens where he makes out with a guy in a church restroom.

flawlessness inside )

NGH.

Firstly, fic:

the ghost between your hands and mouth by [livejournal.com profile] lookinglassgirl [Katinss, Peeta, PG]

I haven't read much Hunger Games fic yet, because I just haven't had the time, but I somehow managed to find this yesterday, and it is fantastic. Beautifully stark and understated.

-

And now, art recs! All A Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones, and all distressingly work safe:


Jon Snow and Ghost by [personal profile] daviddeb [Jon]

Jon Snow by [personal profile] darkfong [Jon, Ghost]

Robb Stark and Grey Wind by [personal profile] daviddeb [Robb]

King in the North [personal profile] nami86 [Robb]

Ever Smiling by [personal profile] sorskc [Theon]

Winterfell Bath by [personal profile] mary-chan [Theon/Jeyne]

I think not, Greyjoy by [personal profile] gold-seven [Jon, Theon]

Jon Snow by [personal profile] darkfong [Jon, Ghost]

Jaime Lannister by [personal profile] noiry [Jaime]

Arya of House Stark by [personal profile] jekaa [Arya]

Lyanna Stark by [personal profile] dreambeing. [Lyanna]

Lord Robert Baratheon by [personal profile] awynt. [Robert]

King Robert by [personal profile] acazigot. [Robert]

While I have you here, look at the cutest .gif in the history of .gifs:

robb stark or gtfo )

I need to write some fic and also find a job, so of course I've spent most of the morning staring at Tumblr and trying to make a text icon that says jon snow knows nothing/except where to put it. Sadly, my photoshop skills fail terribly.

Remix fic has hit a snag. I need the current conversation to take a particular direction, but I can't seem to do it in a way that a) isn't bafflingly long-winded, or b) doesn't read something like Holy change of subject, Batman! or Look, a velociraptor!

*headdesk*

*flail*

NNNNGH.

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.

JON SNOW. OMFG. WHAT.

capslocks )

ROBB. OH. YOUR TERMS. FLAWLESS.

proof )

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

Good morning!

First I saw that [personal profile] snegurochka_lee is back from hiatus, and then I saw this glorious photo of Gerard and Mikey, which was taken for Illuminate Parkinsons.



UNF.

I love everything about this picture. Just, everything. I love Mikey's face, and I love Gerard's ridiculous blond hair. I love how they are standing in apparently Fanghorn Forest, and wearing, like, reindeer pajamas.
