So I've been away from the internet for a while. And while I was away I was drawing. I kind of have a thing for tattoos, and author [ profile] nia_kantorka wrote this little drabble called Ashes Left Behind that was really beautiful and got me all worked up and itching to draw. It's a really visual little fiction and I highly suggest reading it if you haven't already. Anyway, here's the drawing I did after being all inspired. It didn't turn out exactly how I wanted, but I like it well enough :)

Seriously, how can anybody not share this? I will reblog the death out of my own post about it on tumblr until someone gives in and reblogs it too. It's too stunning not to make the rounds on the internet. Please, go and leave some love at philharmony's original post or even better here on AO3. I'm so in awe. Thank you, philharmony! Thank you so much!!! ♥ ♥ ♥

Hey lovelies!

After I've been talking about it for more than 4 months, posting day has finally come.

Title: In Dreams We Share
Author: [ profile] nia_kantorka
Artist: dbananza/ dbza-art
Pairings: Loki/Tony Stark
Rating: NC-17 (explicit)

Warnings: canon typical torture, descriptions of past relationships (including het sex scenes), Pre-Avengers: Age of Ultron (Movie), Oral Sex, Anal Sex, switching implied, Hand Jobs

Summary: When Loki and Tony are hit by some accidental magic, they begin to share each other’s dreams and memories. What should have been a veritable disaster turned into an unforeseen opportunity along the way.

A big thank you to my brainstorming partner and first reader, [ profile] candamira, and to my fabulous beta, [ profile] gracerene, who put this story into shape though they had a million other fandom things to do! You both bore with endless Marvel universe chatter and my whining—that’s worth gold medals in patience and support. [ profile] anemonen, thank you for your help with the Norwegian phrases!

I’m so honored. The wonderful and talented dbananza claimed my first FrostIron story when it was only half finished, and fell in love with this Loki and Tony. Her artwork is one of the most stunning things I’ve ever seen. It was a blast to work and chat with her, and hope the latter won’t cease. Thank you very much, D.!!!

From both of us a big thanks to Plumadesatada for organising another (and our first) FrostIron Bang and answering all our questions!

And because D.'s art is so, so stunning I just have to show it off:

This is my 3rd and last rectober post because I'm busy at the moment.

There are two groups of multi-talented ones for me. The first group are those awesome people who create for more than one fandom on a regular basis, people in the second group use more than one medium for their creative outlet. And there are even a few who do both. With this post I want to honour some of them.

Title: An Aching Soul
Author/Artist: [ profile] writcraftfavicon Writcraft
Fandom: Harry Potter
Pairing(s) Harry/Draco
Rating: R
Word Count: 14,713
Warnings/Tags: Implied/Referenced Drug Addiction

Summary: I can’t help but wonder if Potter’s really as fine as he claims to be. There’s something strange about seeing the vanilla hero of the wizarding world eye-fucking someone across a crowded bar before slipping off into the shadows - Draco Malfoy escapes to the Muggle world to avoid his parents, memories of the war and Harry Potter. However, some things prove harder to escape than others as Draco realises when his favourite Muggle haunt is rudely invaded by a post-war Harry who is struggling to cope with grief, growing up and the battle with his inner demons.

Why I loved it: Tbh, I thought I've already recced it and didn't. Tsk. An Aching Soul has been my favourite of 2015's smooch fics. Yes, there have been plenty of great fics in the fest (I even loved my own fest entry), but this fic gripped me like no other. Even today I remember the feeling of awe when I had been sucked right into the story during its first paragraph. I love a good 1st person pov and being in this Draco's head was a treat. I loved how they both ached so much and only got better because of each other. They didn't even want to, yet it happened. This fic was a piece of great beauty and I feel lucky that I can re-read it whenever I want.

What I adore about Writcraft: She's wonderfully talented with words and creates art too. I adore how she uses pastel colours in a way that they lose all their clichéd innocence. Just take a look: It's a surprise. I had the pleasure to meet Writ in 2015 and she's as kind, generous and funny as her online presence.


Title: The Consort and Loki and his Raven
Author/Artist: [ profile] alby_mangrovesfavicon alby_mangroves
Fandom: Marvel Cinematic Universe (and lots of others fandoms)
Pairing(s) none, just Loki
Rating: Gen

Why I loved them: I might have said once or twice (cough) that I love Loki in all universes and all his forms. There is something wonderful about a God who can laugh about mischief and himself no matter how lost, lonely, or hurt he is. The funny thing, I don't find Tom Hiddleston that handsome with his normal hair colour and style. Yet I think he is the most stunning Loki ever. And I love how Alby captures his persona in fathomless eyes with hair that has a life of its own and...ah, idk, he just lives. And, yes, I have to admit, I'm a sucker for black-and-white-drawings.

What I adore about Alby_mangrove: I adore Alby's art since the first pic I've seen (it was a Merlin/Arthur pic) and I still think her one picture of Harry/Draco is one of the best ever. I'm sure my Steve/Bucky shipping friends know her faboulous pics of those two, but Alby also writes stories. I recced one last rectober. It's one of the stories I've re-read on more than one occasion even though I don't read that much Merlin/Arthur. I would love to see some art for her own story. Yes. Imo Alby's really an epitome of multi-talented!


Title: An Expected Journey
Author/Artist: favicon MarieJacquelyn
Fandom: The Hobbit
Pairing(s) Bilbo/Thorin, implied Dwalin/Nori
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 294,971
Warnings/Tags: each chapter has its tags and warnings, a general warning for temporary character death

Summary: “I just wish...”

“What do you wish?”

“I wish I could have changed it all.”

For years Bilbo has written about his adventures and told stories about his dealings with dwarves and dragons. To most it seemed like fanciful nonsense but to Bilbo it was all very real. A weight followed him home from his travels, one called regret. Now in his final moments Bilbo has a choice to make – go quietly into death’s embrace or go back again and face all the fear and pain for the chance to make things right?

Of course, change is a fickle thing and not everything can be done again as Bilbo is about to find out. In the end, it may not only be salvation that he’s fighting for.

Why I loved it: This fic has it all. A wonderful sense of humour, an epic adventure, time travel, great friendships, big love, so much hurt and angst, and deliciously awkward smut. It has some of the best plot twists ever (I could squeal for days over Smaug here). The author created their own banner and art of their characters (not specially for this fic). A sequel is currently being posted (8/12 chaps) and can't wait to read it when it's finished. I loved the story to pieces and it kept me up for hours and hours - all that though I'm not even a big Hobbit shipper. It was fabulous. :D

What I adore about MarieJacquelyn: One can always get me intruiged with a great sense of humour and the humour in the fic and on their tumblr is just wonderful. I have no clue about GuildWars2, but think the art for those characters (and the ones who took up a life on their own) is pretty impressive too. So, I became of fan just recently, but I'm looking forward to everything that's coming my way.


I wanted to add some more talents, but have gotten lost browsing their online profiles all over the internet. So, I keep them in mind for next year. Cheers, my friends. Enjoy your weekend!
