So I hit Week 2 in TWEWY (and can I just say how phenomenal this port is? High price be damned; if you own an iPhone, you should own this game), and I couldn't help taking some screencaps...



Man, I love Joshua.

Obligatory Ship Flail:
- Everyone ships Sterek.
- Kaner and Tazer are adorbs.

On to the main point - so. I like making stuff. It's kind of my thing. Unfortunately, there aren't any good gift-giving holidays for a little while. Thus, I've decided to make my own up.

Alex Day! Or. Um. Something like that. Basically, I've decided that for my birthday this year (October 4), I want to give you guys things! I'll have fun, you'll get a present, it'll be streets ahead awesome all around. Okay? Okay?

Okay!

[Poll #1858454]

Once it's closer to the actual day, I'll ask for mailing addresses. For now, please just fill out the poll (seriously, I love making gifts - keep me busy!) and be happy. Sound good?

If you have any interest whatsoever in wingfic, you should cart yourself over here to A Crash Course in Falling. It's no secret that I'm a big fan of [livejournal.com profile] carolinecrane's stuff, and man, is this no exception. It's sweet and somehow realistic. And it deserves fanart. Cut for large images and story spoilers. )

So, uh, everyone has seen this, right? Because everyone really needs to.

Oh, and this. I submitted that question, yay!

I ♥ my ships: Teen Wolf edition, Blackhawks edition

Gut reaction, pick one: Dirty Dancing or Star Trek?

Holy crap, you guys. I made a Kane/Toews rec list. And it is HUGE.

Speaking of pairings I'm way too invested in, I encountered a Skyrim glitch the other day that actually worked in my favor. Many of the NPCs you meet in Skyrim you can marry if you're wearing the proper amulet and they're friends with you. For most of them, building a friendship is as easy as completing a quest related to them. The one character I had my eye on for a hubby, Quintus Navale, has two quests connected to him. I don't know why, but at some point I decided he was absolutely the one and only true love of my character. So when the game appeared to have glitched me out of obtaining his second quest (and thus removing my chance of marrying him), I was heartbroken.

I kept playing, though, and I bought a level-up perk that lets you invest in shops. Since Quintus is a shopkeeper, I figured I could at the very least show my platonic support of him. After I handed over 500 gold, though, a funny thing happened. I'd been wearing my Amulet of Mara for a while, just to see which characters were interested in me, and suddenly Quintus was one of them. Without ever getting his second quest. I don't know what flag got flipped incorrectly in the game or how, but investing in the shop turned him into a marriage prospect.

So I said I liked him. And we got married. And he's living in my house in Riften.

Seriously, I can't count the number of times I've had to reset because I sank into a mountain or a key item was knocked irretrievably behind a table or a quest item got stuck in my inventory... actually, that one's usually not fixable with resetting. I'm stuck with Finn's Lute and Pantea's Flute forever, it seems. Anyway, the point is, I'd never encountered a glitch I liked. Finally, the game's bugginess worked in my favor.

And yes, this means Nurelion's death never happened. He's still "asleep and dying" in The White Phial, while Quintus is baking me apple pies in Honeyside. Love it.

... I actually came close to crying with joy when I got to marry Quintus. I mean, I've sunk over 200 hours into my main character, and I'd been hoping to marry him for at least 150 of those. So. Happy.

Because I've been meaning to do this (and because I need to convert [livejournal.com profile] carolinecrane to the awesomeness), here's a few recent Kane/Toews fics I've loved, summarized in three words:

Tied If We Stay - TWITTER RUINS EVERYTHING
Your Daddy's Aim is True - MAGIC CUP BABY
Promise I'm Worthy (To Hold In Your Arms) - TEENAGE HOCKEY RIVALS
Tour de Force - SECRET NOVELIST KANER... okay, this is more than three words, but if you only read one fic, make it this. It's somehow insanely IC while also being awesome and adorable and hot. It's so good.

Ashley, Dave, and Chad draw amazing things. Seeing their stuff made me want to draw things. Less amazing, granted, because those three are wowzers, but still things. And so I did!

Comics: My Life is Not Interesting )
Fanart: Shirtless Boys Kissing and a Teenage Demon )

By the way, what's the commonly accepted behavior when it comes to fanart? Do you let the author know you drew some, or just leave it to float on the internet? Which path is less rude?

Okay, so. Crossroad Blues. You all need to read it. It's hockey RPF, but you really don't need any background information. It's also amazingly entertaining and well written and it involves demons, you guys. DEMONS. And it's AWESOME. It's not stupid or melodramatic, it's just epic. Seriously, go read it. Go. Go read, and then come back and flail with me. I love.

Still feel like drawing this morning - prompt me fandoms, please?
