Why this piece is awesome: LeATHERMOUTH, aside from being one of the gazillion bands Frank is involved in, is somewhat notorious for having a casual yet v. dark aesthetic. I mean, the promo photos are something else.

Zaki-mizer certainly tips a hat to Frank's look (white t-shirt and pants) while also managing to capture the vibrancy and aggression that makes up a LM experience. Although we don't see Frank's face, it's easy to figure out that he's giving it his all, even to the point of be covered with neon pink blood. It might look like a simple piece, but, the longer you study it, the more it seems to come to live.

 We interrupt your regularly scheduled programming to bring a message from a fellow Dreamwidth Buffy comm.

Are thoughts of Halloween creeping up on you? It means Classic Recs is coming too!

Next week at midnight GMT on October 28 (6 PM EST in the U.S. on Oct 27) we’ll be holding our 11th annual Halloween celebration through all the time zones until midnight November 1. This means five days for you to bring your all-time favorite recs of fics, vids, graphics, anything and everything fandom has produced in all the Whedon fandoms! All time periods before 2017 are eligible for posting and, as always, crossover content is A-OK, so get those lists ready! 

We also want to alert anyone already familiar with us that following the movement of many people to Dreamwidth, either primarily or exclusively, we are encouraging posts to the [community profile] buffyversetop5 account here. So we hope to see names old and new here soon! Let us know if you have any questions.


Let's join in the rec party! Now we can all make lists of our 5 favorite Somethings from Seasonal Spuffy - or even  from other places - and share them on Dreamwidth! Yay! See you there this weekend. :)

Why this piece is awesome: Kimilog often throws us right into the middle of a scene with her Reese/Finch pieces, an unfinished moment, captured while the events are unfolding. In this case, it's a Reese/Finch kiss on a couch (in the library? at a safe house?), the papers Harold was working on still in the process of tumbling to the floor.

As Time Goes By

 
It's raining index posts! \o/[personal profile] slaymesoftly has harvested links to everything that was posted during the spring round. If you missed some of the round and meant to go through everything after the index post arrived, *this is your lucky month*.

And a fantastic round it was! As befits the theme, we had an especially rich variation of settings. Enjoy. :)

Please let me know if something of yours is in the wrong place or even disappeared during my struggle with DW formatting. If your WIP has new chapters elsewhere that I haven't linked to, feel free to message me or leave a comment here, so I can add the extra links.

WIPs and NC-17 entries are marked in the list.

Aquaman by Razzah (almost SFW)

[personal profile] mific posting in [community profile] fanart_recs
Fandom: Aquaman/DCU
Characters: Aquaman
Content Notes/Warnings: bare pecs and a delicious happy trail, so use your judgement about where to open it!
Medium: digital painting
Artist on DW/LJ: n/a
Artist Website/Gallery: Razzah on DA
Why this piece is awesome: Almost all the Aquaman art I'll be reccing is from after the current Momoa incarnation came out, but some, like this, date from the casting announcement before we got to see what costume DC were planning. I like the various fusions of old Aquaman details with the artists' imaginations that result, and this is a good example. It's also as hot as hell - wait for the pic to load then click through for the close up - it's worth it! (Those eyes, the pecs, the hairy belly, ulp).

Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: Mikey Way

Artist on DW/LJ: N/A

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

Why this piece is awesome: Because [tumblr.com profile] tcustodisart is THE artist to check out if you're a fan of Mikeyway. Their site is filled to the brims with Mikeyway throughout the MCR eras and beyond.

Deer Eyes is a good example of how well this artist can depict Mikeyway's occasionally haunting yet always sharp gaze. Surrounded by darker hues, your eyes can't help but focus on this Mikeyway: a little awkward and a little friendly. If anything, the doodle style enhances the overall vibe.

Medium: Black and red ink

Artist on DW/LJ: N/A

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

Why this piece is awesome: for one thing, it follows the red and black aesthetic of the art I recced previously. What really caught my eye about it, though, was that, for a simple portrait of a relaxed-looking Frank, there are certain touchtones. Among those, his penchant for wearing hats and 8948416854 layers of clothing. I also dig the geometric touches that enhance, rather than distract, from the overall piece.

Artist Website/Gallery: [deviantart.com profile] worrynet / [tumblr.com profile] touchedbymisha
Why this piece is awesome: The artist did review/reaction sketches for many episodes of the show (to find at their Deviantart POI gallery), which were always lots of fun and distinctive in style. I'm linking to this Team Machine picture - done in reaction to the show's PCA win - because it has all of the characters of Team Machine at once, which is pretty rare, and it shows well what's so fun about these little sketches.

Signup for round 23 is happening right now, and we're all looking forward to the new round. Meanwhile, thanks to [personal profile] slaymesoftly, there's an opportunity to look back as well! We know the School Hard event might have been confusing to navigate because of all the links to other sites... so we made you an index post that's ALL links. Enjoy!
None of the fics are WIPs; the NC-17 entry is marked as such. For entries that were posted on more than one site, the default links go to LiveJournal.

Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: Frank Iero/Gerard Way

Content Notes/Warnings: N/A

Medium: Color pens/markers

Artist on DW/LJ: N/A

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

Why this piece is awesome: Because it's a sweet/tender moment of kissage between Frank and Gerard that could be set in any AU. I love the nod to Gerard's often quirky shirts as well as Frank's tendency for wearing pants that have ripped knees. #LOL

Also, the palette (lots of reds, black, and greys) falls within the Revenge era aesthetic. And yet, between the gentle lines and the adorability factor of the kiss, what's creepy ends up being quite charming.

Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: Ray Toro

Content Notes/Warnings: N/A

Medium: Watercolor

Artist on DW/LJ: N/A

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

Why this piece is awesome: Because, like the artist said, Ray Toro deffo deserves more fanart, LOL!

One of the things I like about this piece is how kinetic it feels. This is Ray at his happiest: mid-playing his guitar onstage. Another thing I think is cool is how the artist depicted a stage light right behind Ray. Perhaps the artist wanted us to enjoy Ray's curls. Finally, although the majority of the palette come from a darker hue, there is a palpable vibrancy to both the subject (Ray) and the overall mood.
