Why this piece is awesome: I accidentally stumbled on this, lost it and then happily found it again. This piece cause quite a stir in the H/D fandom, so much so that it became known as 'That Picture', so much so that when people realized that despite the caption, there was no fic that went with the picture, a whole fest sprang up, dedicated to correcting that. Look at it, and you can see why. It's a stunning work. Beautifully drawn,with a terrific use of light and shadow to create detail, it's also sensual and intense

If a human body has two-hundred-and-six bones
and thirty trillion cells, and each cell
has one hundred trillion atoms, if the spine
has thirty-three vertebrae—
                   if each atom
has a shadow—then the lilacs across the yard
are nebulae beginning to star.
If the fruit flies that settle on the orange
on the table rise
like the photons
                     from a bomb fire miles away,
my thoughts at the moment of explosion
are nails suspended
in a jar of honey.
                              I peel the orange
for you, spread the honey on your toast.
When our skin touches
our atoms touch, their shadows
merging into a shadow galaxy.
And if echoes are shadows
of sounds, if each hexagonal cell in the body
is a dark pool of jelly,
if within each cell
drones another cell—
                        The moment the bomb explodes
the man’s spine bends like its shadow
across the road.
The moment he loses his hearing
I think you are calling me
from across the house
because my ears start to ring.
From the kitchen window
                     I see the lilacs crackling like static
as if erasing, teleporting,
thousands of bees rising from the blossoms:
tiny flames in the sun.
I lick the knife   
and the honey pierces my tongue:
                       a nail made of light.
My body is wrapped in honey. When I step outside
                                  I become fire.

Why this piece is awesome: This is such a fun work. I love the idea of the Second Doctor being able to make even the most dangerous foe dance happily to his recorder. And the artist has really made all of them look like they're enjoying themselves. Even the Dalek!

Lying, thinking
Last night
How to find my soul a home
Where water is not thirsty
And bread loaf is not stone
I came up with one thing
And I don’t believe I’m wrong
That nobody,
But nobody
Can make it out here alone.

Alone, all alone
Nobody, but nobody
Can make it out here alone.

There are some millionaires
With money they can’t use
Their wives run round like banshees
Their children sing the blues
They’ve got expensive doctors
To cure their hearts of stone.
But nobody
No, nobody
Can make it out here alone.

Alone, all alone
Nobody, but nobody
Can make it out here alone.

Now if you listen closely
I’ll tell you what I know
Storm clouds are gathering
The wind is gonna blow
The race of man is suffering
And I can hear the moan,
‘Cause nobody,
But nobody
Can make it out here alone.

Alone, all alone
Nobody, but nobody
Can make it out here alone.

Why this piece is awesome: A very different take on Yoda, and I love it. In this he's ripped and feisty and it's a great reminder that before he was a chilled-out hermit he was a Jedi warrior. Sock it to those Sith, Yoda! (enlarge it to see every hair on his head)

Why this piece is awesome: Finishing up my recs with this amazing piece. This artist has done some amazing art for Supernatural and it was hard to pick but I settled on this because it is so lovingly detailed and has an element of nostalgia for the days when life was maybe not simple, but simpler for the Winchester boys.

Why this piece is awesome: This is an adorable portrait of Frank's reaction to a small dog. I love his big, sappy smile and the way he's hunching forward to get at eye level with the dog. And the rough brush strokes add to the feeling of a brief captured moment.

1.

Never physically abusive,
words and deeds ensured
that how I learned to write
was also how I learned to find peace

A daily challenge,
and space to breathe
both in one, and always told
part of me was dirty

Part always awful
wrong. gone off, happy
to be those, and other things,
part of me was mine

And every single
day there was time
not taken by the pain,
part peace and quiet.
