current mood: blah
het_bigbang is finally live, so I can reveal to you the art for patriciatepes' wonderful canon-divergent Harry Potter fanfic, "Brave New World." If you're a fan of Hermione/Snape, you really *must* check it out. It's a great read.
Summary: Partially DH compliant, most AU. Voldemort arrived at Malfoy Manor quicker than expected, and like that, the war was over. Now, Hermione is Snape’s “assigned companion,” and as determined as ever to stop Voldemort and save her friends. But that’s hard to do in Voldemort’s new world…
For the art (originally posted on AO3), I made a cover image and an illustration (no spoilers). The main text used in "I tell you all my secrets." The art is PG, while the story is Mature. Enjoy!

I'm a bad blogger. You might have noticed this if you're on my flist. I seriously only seem to post when I have something to present. I rarely post anything personal. This is a problem I have when I try to post on my blog for my original fiction. I haven't updated it in...oh probably four years. And, before I stopped, most of my posts were just advertisements and release date announcements for short story anthologies featuring my works. So, a question for all my friends out there who keep a regular blog (that's not entirely about fandom): how do you come up with material to talk about? Do you ever feel nervous when writing about yourself or attempting to give advice?
On to the fun stuff...
The last piece I'm posting for the wipbigbang is a cover for the Afteriwake's Sherlock/Molly story "The Littlest Untruth." I originally posted the art and a link to a larger version HERE on AO3, but thought it would be fun to share on LJ as well. (Also this serves as a means to recommend Afteriwake's lovely story I guess.)
For the wipbigbang, I created art for captaintinymite's awesome Teen Wolf fic "The Route from Just Me to Three," which features a ship I adore, Lydia/Stiles/Derek.

The Route from Just Me to Three by Captaintinymite: AO3
After their run-in with Sebastien Valet left Stiles and Lydia with life threatening injuries, Stiles decides that enough isenough. He has to get out of Beacon Hills before it killes him. When he learns that he's been accepted to a university in new York City, and that Lydia will be attending Columbia, they both arrange to graduate high school a semester early thanks to sufficient credits.
Derek, who has kept in touch with both Stiles and Lydia since he high-tailed it (no pun intended) out of town, invites them to share his condo in Long Island with him, and they jump on the chance.
The only problem?
Stiles is desperately in love with Derek, and now...recent events have brought what he thought were long since dissolved feelings for Lydia to the surface. Confused and worried about hurting one of his closest friends, he suffers alone. Until one night of heavy drinking changes things.
What is he going to do?
Since I decided not to participate as an author in the wipbigbang this year, I chose to do artwork for three stories. All of them were lovely, and the authors were fun to work with. This first story was a Stargate Atlantis AU story by ca_pierson, featuring John/Rodney and adorable kiddos.
Link: Falling into Place
Summary: Staring up at the child welfare building, John barely feels the freezing wind as it bites at the bare skin of his neck.
He can still hear the voice of the officer who had called him. “Robbery” and “there was nothing the doctors could do” keep repeating over and over in his head. Nothing else stayed behind from what his phone claims was a ten minute conversation. It doesn’t really matter.
For the artwork, I used a few of those lovely Hubble space images in honor of Atlantis, even though the story itself is set on Earth. The silhouettes were created using images found online of random people, then edited slightly to fit the characters in the story a bit better. The ones in the "End" banner were make from Stargate Atlantis screencaps. The text is called "Bright Young things" (see, I do occasionally remember these things!)
Click on the images to see a slightly larger version.
Enjoy! And if it's your cup of tea, definitely check out Falling Into Place.
