Title: Unconventional Countess
Author: meridian_rose
Fandom: Black Sails
Pairing/Characters: Max/John Silver, Billy Bones, other characters appear
Rating: Teen
Length: 16,179
Summary: John Silver, the fraudulent Earl of Poole, awakes to find a beauty berating him - but he cannot recall the last three months of his life, nor having a wife. Max is clearly a most unsuitable consort, but then he's known as being an unconventional earl. Suspicious of Max's presence in his life, Silver struggles to regain his memories but it seems his heart remembers things his head does not.

Notes: Alternate Universe – Regency; biromantic Max, grey-a Silver, romantic nonsexual relationship

Artist Website/Gallery: [tumblr.com profile] witchboyiero

Why this piece is awesome: Expert cartoon-style drawing in this series of illustrations for a twitter account about MCR badfic. I also like how the inspirational tweets are placed to balance out the drawn portion. Any day now I'll stop reccing Frank/Gerard fancomics, but this one is hilarious. Features circa-2005 Revenge-era Gerard and Frank and Gerard's snake tongue going in one of Frank's ears and out the other.

Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: Lindsey Way
Content Notes/Warnings: none
Medium: traditional (markers)
Artist on DW/LJ: N/A
Artist Website/Gallery: [tumblr.com profile] ghostparachutes

Why this piece is awesome: There's a lot of delicious colorful art by ghostparachutes to love, but I picked this one because I have found so little high-quality art of Lynz. There are two pictures in the post I linked, but I especially like the portrait of Lynz playing her bass--the red bandana and matching bloody knees (and hands!), the guitar, the hair, and the dark cloudy background.

Why this piece is awesome: It's a cute shippy comic with pining! Specifically I love how expressive vampire!Gerard's face is, plus his tiny vampire fangs. I also like how no one's arms bend correctly, but their wavy appendages just add to the energy of the piece.

Why this piece is awesome: This is a brilliant mash-up, perfect for the character. Instead of the mask, the Winter Soldier is muzzled like Max in Fury Road, and he has Furiosa's prosthetic in place of his high tech arm. He's got this feral look, nicely emphasized by the smear of black grease framing his eye and that snarl. He looks like he's been through hell, and he's just gonna keep on going. Great piece.

I'm reccing Bandom art this month, but my main interest is My Chemical Romance so that's mostly what I'll be reccing.

Fandom: Bandom (MCR)
Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: Frank Iero & Gerard Way
Content Notes/Warnings: none
Medium: traditional (ink drawing with pencil and marker?)
Artist on DW/LJ: N/A
Artist Website/Gallery: [deviantart.com profile] knameiess / [tumblr.com profile] jerseymisery

Why this piece is awesome: This is a delightful short fancomic depicting a scene from a fanfic ("I Have Been All Things Unholy" by Bexless). I especially like Gerard's expression of innocent friendliness and the limited color palette. The artist has illustrated several scenes from the fic with the same simple, but energetic style. (ESPECIALLY THIS ONE, sorry I couldn't choose)

Mod Post: Rest of 2017

Hello all,

I have posted the themes for the challenges for the rest of the year. These deadlines are pretty sturdy, so there will be little room for extensions. Please, feel free to start getting those writing muscles flexed now! :)

Participation has been dwindling, which is to be expected between a long break of new episodes and summer, but as autumn approaches I hope we can pick things back up again. The amount of participation will always give me an idea of it's worth keeping this community open, especially after the holiday break. If anyone has any thoughts on this, let me know. If we could improve anything, like themes or deadlines or anything else, I'm open to suggestions.

I apologize for the delay of banners again. I have started on them. Who knew a screaming infant could dictate your free time! I should have those up this week, latest next week.

Your mod,
Paynesgrey

Fandom: Captain America, Wonder Woman
Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: Steve Rogers, Wonder Woman
Content Notes/Warnings: none
Medium: Digital drawing
Artist on DW/LJ: [deviantart.com profile] hamletroman
Artist Website/Gallery: Gallery at DeviantArt
Why this piece is awesome: The composition in this is really great. I love Steve's very determined face, getting ready to punch some Nazis. Diana is beautiful, strong, confident, and harkens back to Lynda Carter's portrayal. I also like the throwing of the tank imagery, which reminded me of that awesome moment in the Wonder Woman (2017) movie. These two make such an amazing team-up, and the artwork really does their characters justice. :)

Why this piece is awesome: It's a Hogwarts Avengers AU that really captures the essence of the characters if they were teenagers in a magical high school. I love Peggy as quidditch captain, strutting that confident attitude and pre-serum Steve gazing up at her all adoring-like. Perfect. *___*
