current mood: blah
Anyhow, lately creating icons has become a fun way to procrastination when I'm supposed to be writing fics for two separate bangs. What's really messing with my head is the Teen Wolf Big Bang. I started with three solid ideas, all of them involving ships (which is rare for me, and, why, oh why couldn't I just go with a nice gen case-fic?):
(c.) Derek Hale/Chris Argent.
At first I was really feeling the Stiles/Lydia vibes because I'm always feeling that ship when I'm watching the show (dodges Moon Pies thrown by my Sterek and Stalia friends--I love them all, guys). But, for some reason, it just wasn't flowing, so I moved on to my second option of Scott/Allison/Stiles, basically in an canon divergent what-if-they-hooked-up season 2 re-write...And now I'm stuck on it too. So I can either force out more on it or give option C a try. Because I've been talking about the UST between Chris and Derek for ages, but I've only ever written one tiny one-shot for that extremely under-populated ship. Oh, and did I mention that draft 1 is due at the end of the month? Heehee. Yeah. I might have procrastinated too long on project to save it. But the minimum is only 15k, which I've managed easily in the past...
I have no clue if I'm asking for advice on this subject or just venting about my inability to make decisions. Ask my friends, it takes me ten minutes to pick out a snack at the vending machine.
Back to the whole point of me posting tonight...I'm actually posting a promo for a fun looking icon community:
So, yeah, that whole giant paragraph at the top was unintended, but there you go. Fic probs, am I right?
Story Link: Some Things are Brighter in the Dark
Story Summary: Dean Campbell had an alright life. Nothing really to complain about. Well... except the seizures, and the general sensation that something was wrong. But then he crashed the Impala, and two days later an innocuous man moved in across the hall and everything changed. It was intense how he felt about Cas, this blue-eyed mysterious guy that said the strangest things. Dean fell for him so hard it was borderline insane. As much as it terrified him, Dean gave into it... let himself be happy. Of course, that was when it happened, when something shattered the lie. The mystery of his life had been solved, but what would it cost him?
Here's the artwork.

I have mixed feelings about this batch of icons, but I couldn't help but sit down and watch the special edition cut of ALIENS on Blu-ray as I finished them up.
Maybe, possibly, hopefully, there's another fan of Ripley out there who might enjoy these.
(P.S. You don't know how hard it was to not use profanity in my text.)
( I can handle myselfCollapse )
Had fun making a quick batch for the females20in20 December round. I know the Christmas ones have almost arrived too late, but maybe I'll get a chance to use them next year. As usual, feel free to use these.

The recognition wasn’t instant, but the fear was. For a split second, he didn’t know why his whole body had frozen, his eyes widening, the hair on the back of his neck standing on end. Then it hit him, the moment before he swiveled around and saw the werewolf standing behind him. That was Peter Hale’s voice.
Peter locked-in-a-cage Hale.
Fight or flight. Logically, he knew he should choose one, but he couldn’t. The first thought to pass through his head slipped out of his mouth.
“Who let you out?”
I didn't get a chance to read many fics this month, and I have a long bookmarked lists of fics I want to read soon...But there was one fic I read at the beginning of this month that blew my socks off. I couldn't stop reading this story, and I was so sad when I finally reached the end, so, for one last "Rectober" rec, I obviously had to sing its praises.
This reccing challenge has been fun, and I'll definitely have to try and rec fic and art more often in the future.
