This is a bit more fragmented than last week's post because it mainly consists of the plurks I made after watching the episode.

I basically copied this from my Tumblr, with a few minor edits, so this post is staying public.

There’s no image for this one because all I could find was pictures from the film (which I haven’t seen and don’t really want to, tbqh) and fanart.

In an attempt to actually live up to my resolution to use my livejournal more than once a month, I've decided to cross-post my responses to this meme. All of these posts are staying public because pretty much everyone can see them on my Tumblr anyway.

Here's some more information (taken from the community's user info) for those of you who are wondering what on earth this is all about:

Korra - WIP
by ~kirin2009 on deviantART

This is my first attempt at drawing Korra (last shown here). One of the fun things about AtLA fanart is that you can draw characters doing all kinds of OTT flashy moves that you’d never use in a real fight. Flying side kick + firebending = suddenly a lot more effective.

I had to sharpen this one a lot because my scanner is rather fond of eating my linework. Colours and a (simple) background will be added later. For now, I’m more interested in hearing about how to sort out her clothing folds and fix any anatomy errors that are still present. I think I find it easier to draw baggy clothes - it must be all those years of drawing Inuyasha fanart. :p

I'm making this post public for the sake of plugging this community.

[ profile] womenlovefest

Remember this post? Well, it turned out that the "We Love the Women that Fandom Hates" fest was so popular that the people who organised it couldn't keep up with all the sign-ups and decided to devote an entire community to it instead. Instead of sign-ups, every character has a post of her own and there, in comments, everyone posts links to what they've created.

I highly encourage you to join, if you haven't already.

Hopefully, I'll have more to post here soon, depending on how well I keep my New Year's resolutions. ;)

[ profile] thequestionclub has created a poll about the crossposting controversy, which has been linked to the news post concerning this feature by one of the LJ staff members. If you're interested in letting LJ's staff know how you feel about crossposting, go here to vote on the poll.

I found a link to this while I was lurking and thought it was a great idea. Fandom often has a tendency to focus on the negative where female characters are concerned, so it's always nice to see something that focuses on their positive aspects for a change.

Female Character Friending Meme

Sayo @ Deviantart

Sayo @ Paperdemon

So, it only took me four months to upload some actual artwork to my new DA account. And it's a scrap. Well done, self. ^^;

Anyhow, this is Sayo one of my (horror of horrors) original characters from an Inuyasha fanfic I've been working on for God knows how long, which will hopefully see the light of day before the end of this decade. Until I started on this story I was very reluctant to use OCs as anything other than minor/background characters in my fanfiction because there's so many pitfalls to avoid when it comes to OCs. However, in this story there was no way I could make a canon character the antagonist without making things *incredibly* contrived and I needed a cast of supporting characters who weren't just there to act as plot devices. None of them are romantically involved with any canon characters (except for a couple of one-sided crushes), so hopefully that'll get me out of Mary-Sue Hell for the time being. j/k

Cut for more babbling about my art... )

Hi, everyone!

I'm offering one fic of at least 1,000 words for the [ profile] help_haiti auctions. [ profile] help_haiti was created in the morning of January 13, 2010, as a place for fandomers to help raise money to help in the rescues, recoveries and rebuilding of Haiti following the tragic earthquake on January 12, 2010.

This is how it works:
1- Members of fandom put things up for auction: fic, art, icons, crafts, various interesting miscellany, etc.
2- You bid, and the highest bidder donates that amount of money to a Haiti-relevant aid organization or charity of their choice.

If you're interested in bidding on a fic by me (remember, you get to tell me what to write), please go to MY THREAD.

I'm offering fics for Avatar: the Last Airbender, Blade of the Immortal, Fullmetal Alchemist (Manga), Inuyasha, Mermaid Saga and One Piece. The auctions close on the the twentieth, and the fic will be delivered by Valentine's Day. Bids start at ten dollars.

If you've got the time, then be sure to take a look at some of the other auctions. There's an incredible variety of things on offer.

If you are reading this right now, you have more luxury than someone in Iran could ever hope for right now. If you are watching TV or a video on youtube, updating your status on Facebook, Tweeting, or even texting your friend, you are lucky. If you are safe in your home, and were able to sleep last night without the sounds of screaming from the rooftops, you need to know and understand what is happening to people just like you in Iran right now.

Cut for those who've already seen this on their Flists. If not, read on... )
