Fandom: Sherlock Holmes
Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: Sherlock
Content Notes/Warnings: Contains Sherlock in an off-the-shoulder dress.
Medium: digital vector art
Artist on DW/LJ: n/a
Artist Website/Gallery: MARiKaArt on DA  and on tumblr
Why this piece is awesome: An amazing work - Sherlock as Lolita, looking extraordinarily debauched from his bloodshot eyes to his smudged lipstick to the chest hair and nipple peeking out the lacy neckline of his little black dress. The opposite of innocence. Check out Marika's other artworks, they're equally good.

Why this piece is awesome: This is one of the best Killjoys works I've seen in a long time. I love the way it feels like a slice-of-life/snapshot from a story. The composition and colours, and the slightly retro style are all wonderful and fits the motive perfectly.

Fandom: Sherlock Holmes
Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: Sherlock and John
Content Notes/Warnings: none
Medium: digital painting
Artist on DW/LJ: closed off account on LJ
Artist Website/Gallery: nope, sorry - closed-off account on DA and there's only one other piece of fanart on the andbutts tumblr that's tagged as such. But there's one other very cute young femlock piece saved on Mira's tumblr here.
Why this piece is awesome: Such a hoot - they're teenage girl detectives painted in a very Nancy Drew manner, with John as Sherlock's tough "greaser" girlfriend. I really like the monochrone colour, like an old book illustration.

Tell all the truth but tell it slant —
Success in Circuit lies
Too bright for our infirm Delight
The Truth's superb surprise
As Lightning to the Children eased
With explanation kind
The Truth must dazzle gradually
Or every man be blind —

AH, how poets sing and die!
Make one song and Heaven takes it;
Have one heart and Beauty breaks it;
Chatterton, Shelley, Keats and I—
Ah, how poets sing and die!

Why this piece is awesome: Not femlock this time, but a cross-dressed Sherlock. Taikova's painted a particularly muscular Sherlock here, which makes a great contrast with the lingere. Nicely fluid drawing style and a great likeness.

It's time for our regular reccer recruiting post, and to look ahead to the next month. So far we have four volunteer reccers who signed up for November with these fandoms:

* Bandom ([personal profile] lucifuge5)
* Doctor Who ([personal profile] turlough)
* Person of Interest ([personal profile] ceares)
* Star Trek: The Original Series ([personal profile] mific)

So we already have a few recs too look forward to in November, but it would of course be awesome if we had more recs. There is still plenty of opportunity for you to jump in and volunteer to rec next month (or to convince your friends to do some reccing). And many cheers for all of our members who volunteer to rec, especially if you rec regularly. Your valiant repeat efforts keep the comm alive.

Looking even further ahead so far NO reccer has volunteered for December, so that month definitely still needs some love (and recs! *g*) too. So please consider reccing in a fandom of your choice, whether small or huge, and comment on the sign-up post and volunteer for November, December or even further ahead if you are so well organized, that you know your fannish interests and time commitments in advance. It's only four recs as a minimum, and you can rec any genre or rating. Or promote us to your friends or in your favorite communities so others do the work.

Open Rec Posting

The monthly open reccing period for all members starts now and lasts until the end of October. If you are looking for something to inspire you, the prompt for this week is "Stormy", but that's totally optional for the recs. However they do still have to conform to the usual rec format and follow the rules for what is allowed to be recced here.

(Comments here are disabled, because I want to bundle volunteering in the sign-up post so that nothing gets lost, and you can see the list of claimed slots there too.)

 Here is consequence, folding its wings
on the fence. Here are your chances. After years
of moving whatever you do
from one place to another in the manner
that constitutes your work, you have to admit
you know what you think. About tonight
not so much fallen as struggling to its feet, gorgeous
in spite of what it's done to you. All
is forgiven. The loneliness composed on the road, after hours,
off-shift, out of it, or left behind, the vindictive
clairvoyance of local law enforcement, protracted
incidents represented by lacunae in your resume,
strategic negotiations pursuant to the project
of getting the fuck out of there, or making
the best of being stuck where you were,
in those rooms now creaking in a forest of outlived rooms
recalled as eras are recalled, their outmoded fixtures
and period costumes, motes afloat
in parallelograms of windowlight. Who are you?
What of you persists? Your life is built on intervals
the way a chord is, on changes that alter you
by thirds, by fifths, in silences the progression climbs
to where each song ends, and the next begins.

There's analysis of the poem here.

AFRAID? Of whom am I afraid?
Not death; for who is he?
The porter of my father’s lodge
As much abasheth me.

Of life? ‘T were odd I fear a thing
That comprehendeth me
In one or more existences
At Deity’s decree.

Of resurrection? Is the east
Afraid to trust the morn
With her fastidious forehead?
As soon impeach my crown!

Saadi held his Muse in awe,
She was his mistress and his law;
A twelvemonth he could silence hold,
Nor ran to speak till she him told;
He felt the flame, the fanning wings,
Nor offered words till they were things,
Glad when the solid mountain swims
In music and uplifting hymns.

Come live with me and be my love,
And we will all the pleasures prove
That valleys, groves, hills, and fields
Woods or steepy mountain yields

And we will sit upon the rocks,
Seeing the shepherds feed their flocks
By shallow rivers to whose falls
Melodious birds sing madrigals.

And I will make thee beds of roses
And a thousand fragrant posies,
A cap of flower, and a kirtle
Embroidered all with leaves of myrtle;

A gown made of the finest wool
Which from our pretty lambs we pull;
Fair lined slippers for the cold
With buckles of the purest gold;

A belt of straw and ivy buds,
With coral clasps and amber studs;
And if these pleasures may thee move,
Come live with me and be my love.

The shepherds' swains shall dance and sing
For thy delight each May morning:
If these delights thy mind may move,
Then live with me and be my love.
