nenya_kanadka: quality content: Gregory Peck with his shirt off (@ Gregory Peck shirtless)
I, er, maybe got a little carried away.

30 black & white icons from Gregory Peck's early career )

Also a thingy that I suppose one could use as a friends-only banner or one of those NaNoWriMo "You should be writing" inspirational graphics. (Once one had stopped wibbling in the corner, of course.)

nenya_kanadka: stick figure British navy officer perched on AO3 logo (@ AO3)
Does anyone know if it is the Done Thing to post sets of icons to AO3? Like would it count as fanart?

Usually I would never, but I'm thinking of a minuscule fandom that doesn't really have a comm on DW or a Tumblr community, but that does tend to like/use my icons when I make 'em. And wondering if that would be a centralized way for people to find them all at once.

(Obviously would also still crosspost new ones here.)

ETA: And now I have done.
nenya_kanadka: Martin Stein on a fiery glowing background (Firestorm Martin)
I got the most lovely pile of presents in my stocking! (Jump to what I wrote.)

Fic: Hornblower (smutty) and Third Doctor (fluffy) and origfic lesbian SPACE pirates! <3 And the most adorable tiny Mrs. F- drabble for [personal profile] the_comfortable_courtesan! SQUEEE.

And art, and recs (Janeway, and Seven of Nine, and origfic f/f) and 2048 games! (More Janeway, more Seven! With the best picture choices evar.)

And icons!

Mockingbird (comics) by [personal profile] tarlanx

Firestorm (Jax) by [personal profile] falcon_horus and a matching Firestorm (Martin) one by me

If any of that looks fun, my stocking is over here and you're welcome to the icons or the fic recs or whatever. :D

Fic what I wrote: I wrote two fics (and a recs list). [personal profile] muccamukk talked me into kittens. I said, "But I don't know what to write!" and she said (picture the world's most adorable grin), "KITTENS!"

So I wrote kittens.

Title: Artemis At Sea for [ profile] aqwt101
Fandom/Characters: Hornblower (TV miniseries); Hornblower/Bush, Styles
Rating/Word Count: 2600 words, gen/pre-slash
Summary: The ship's cat has kittens. Bush has opinions; Hornblower exhausts himself; Styles is given a heady commission. Started out meaning to be Hornblower vs kittens but ended up as Bush vs kittens. (Bush 0, kittens 2, ftr.)

Title: Tubbs, In Repose for [ profile] schneefink
Fandom/Characters: Steerswoman (Rosemary Kirstein)/Neko Atsume crossover (yes really); Rowan, Willam, hints of Rowan/Bel and Willam/Corvus
Rating/Word Count: 2600 words, gen
Summary: Rowan vs Willam's "wizard cats." Spoilers through the end of the currently-published series (The Language of Power). My recipient asked for Rowan and Willam mentoring each other. This may have ended up more tilted in the "Rowan discovers new weird shit" direction. :P

In theory, there were several other stockings I wanted to fill. Quite possibly someday I will write Cordelia Vorkosigan vs the Cetagandan Embassy's bioengineered gift kitten, or Breq vs...any kitten at all. (Mucca: "What the hell does Breq do with a kitten??" Me: "Exactly! :D :D")

I also put together a lesbian romance (origfic f/f) recs list, since I've been reading so many of those lately. (Sometimes I want romance, and specifically want lady-loving romance. Fandom usually fills my m/m needs, and while my het needs are specific I usually know where to go for those. But I've been on an f/f binge lately and have been delighted with many of the results.) I should probably copy & paste the whole recs list in here at some point--maybe after I've read the last couple on the list, and a few of the ones recced to me in my stocking. (Notably, there was exactly one book that appeared on both lists. Since I've been waiting for Romancing The Inventor to exist for a couple of years, I don't mind. :D)
nenya_kanadka: towsell-mowsell on a sopha (Comfortable Courtesan sopha)
Because our heroine is so very good at foiling the plots of the petty and vindictive enemies of her circle (most recently a plagiarizing poet):

Madame Nemesis is, as always, from [personal profile] the_comfortable_courtesan, a deeply delightful serialized historical novel. Other icons in the series may be found via my tags.
nenya_kanadka: Wonder Woman poster (kneeling with sword) (Power Girl grin)
Read a whole bunch of Power Girl before I left for town, and OMG I love her so much. :D I mean, I love Kryptonians in the first place, and I love her sense of humour, and I love her no-nonsense approach to everything from interdimensional identity angst to how people react to her big boobs. She's just so much FUN and so relatable. While punching evil in the face. SO GREAT.

(I've come to the conclusion after googling Power Girl cosplay the other night that if you're posing for cosplay pics as PG without a big grin on your face, or if you're playing her as a sex kitten because of the boob window, you're doin' it rong. I am pleased to note that most of the Power Girl cosplayers I found were doing it with enthusiasm and biceps and YAY. Excellent. :D)

Anyhow, there are icons!

Mixed set with 21 Power Girl icons by [ profile] tsunderes
Power Girl (10 icons), Thor, misc by [ profile] radarsparks
Two Power Girl in a bunch of DC icons by [ profile] perletwo_ljcozy

[ profile] capes_and_cowls seems to be a good source of DC icons generally. These all have a couple of Power Girl and stuff like Batgirl, Supergirl, and heroes I don't know:
Issue 21
Issue 23
Issue 24

My only problem now is that I want to use ALL of them, possibly on the same post. :D
nenya_kanadka: art of African woman in gold scarf (@ art - woman in gold)
Ran across these gorgeous icons while fiddling with Dreamwidth layouts tonight.

Diasporic African Art icons by [personal profile] arobynsung from art by two artists (listed as Muti and Keith Mallet) in two very different styles.

Gorgeous stuff.

(Meanwhile, I am ignoring the things I want to tweak about this current layout (Calling Card by [personal profile] bakesale) because my eyes are crossing. It's a really lovely layout, though very different from the previous one by [personal profile] rosecarmine that I've had for a year and a half, so I'm not sure if it's the change or the sleepiness that's making it look a bit wonky to me. I adore the purple, though. Mucca's faves are growing on me. (I like things because they are blue; Mucca likes them because they are purple.)

Off to watch some ridiculous TV instead.)
nenya_kanadka: Wonder Woman poster (kneeling with sword) ([fandom] Comfortable Courtesan list)
(Link contains spoiler for events some episodes back, but also NAMES. And the world's most adorable love scene.)

Josiah ♥ Eliza ♥ Clorinda!

Any other colour available upon request. Other [personal profile] the_comfortable_courtesan-related icons may be found via tags. :-)
nenya_kanadka: text exclaming "Oh, Sandy!" (Comfortable Courtesan Sandy)
Is what I would like to be doing with my lady, but recent events conspire against us.

But more Madame C- C- icons! Icons are calming cool.

And from a comment, for the OT3 shippers:

Previous entries may be found via tags.

(Have I mentioned that the first two sections of the serial are out as free e-books? Because they are.)
nenya_kanadka: Wonder Woman poster (kneeling with sword) (Default)
Because obviously the thing to do when one finally gets a chance with one's laptop while travelling is to spend a couple of hours making text icons. (What can I say? I find it soothing.)

From a recent episode (to [SPOILER] while plotting for the good of their friends, and incidentally having a cuddle: "O, you say I get into fusses but compared to Miss A-, I am Patience on a monument.")

I am Patience on a monument

And a common exclamation from the commentariat regarding Mr MacD-:
Oh, Sandy!

(Previous set is over here: "Epistolary mathematickal flirtation...and a wombatt!")
nenya_kanadka: Wonder Woman poster (kneeling with sword) (Default)
For those of you on my flist who are following along with [personal profile] oursin's historickal serial over at [personal profile] the_comfortable_courtesan/[ profile] madame_c_c, I bring icons in celebration of the latest twist in the fates of Miss G-- and Mr T--'s statistics-and-science-infused romance:

Feel free to take. Credit is great--but definitely make sure to point people towards Mme C--'s!
nenya_kanadka: Jupiter Jones in epic space wedding dress (Jupiter Ascending dress)
Somebody else has made some, right? Somewhere? Twenty minutes of googling last night didn't turn up anything. Thus a few of Jupiter in her swanky dress--chosen, admittedly, for the pretty pretty dress rather than for the scene itself--and please let me know in comments if you've seen more JA icons elsewhere!
