My stocking is here.

I got book recs, podcast recs, short fics (timetraveler's tourist guide to Hannibal's crossing of the Alps, ZAMA IN SPACE), art (SPACE EXPLORER T-REX) and various other bits and bobs.

And now I wait for [community profile] fandomgiftbox .
dhampyresa: (Epic shit happening on the internet)
I DID IT

HOLY SHIT I DID THHE THING

IT'S OFFICIAL
dhampyresa: (Default)
My wrist really hurts lately and idk why. I'm hoping it's only temporary and not linked to the back pain. Anyway, going to go easy on posting, I suppose.

And so, I'm cancelling the giant post of all the books I read in 2016 and didn't talk about. Have part of it instead.


What did you finish reading

Cixi de Troy, by Christophe Arleston (scenario) et Olivier Vatine (art): This is a spin-off from Lanfeust de Troy, telling the story of Cixi between volumes 5 and 6 of that series. Same writer as the main series, different artist. A lot happens in quite a short time! I like Cixi a lot and tbh I'd been wanting to know more about that period of time where she was exclusive mistress to omnipotent tyrant by day and DRAGON RIDING VIGILANTE fighting said tyrant by night, which this comics trilogy is at least partly about, so yay! Also, pirates. Also also it makes it canon that Cixi is bi. Way back when I reviewed Mike Carey's Lucifer, I mentionned "it feature[d] the longest roadtrip I have read for someone to get an abortion that they cannot get through other means" -- this book is the basis of comparaison for that. In both cases the fact that outside magical forces prevent these women from seeking an abortion is treated as a violation, fyi. Anyway. I quite enjoyed the friendship between Cixi and her maid, and Cixi and her dragon.


What are you currently reading

A satirical newspaper that comes out on Wednesdays. I'm reading Le Canard Enchainé, Journal satirique paraissant le mercredi, because it's Wednesday and if I'm going to buy a fucking newspaper, I'll be damned if it's a newspaper that isn't independant.


Stuff finished in 2016

Mostly comics )


Stuff finished in 2017
Also mostly comics )


What are you reading next

In French: a book on Parisian folklore, a book of first-hand accounts of the Paris Commune (with an eye both to the general history and to writing a Rogue One AU) and a book on Brittany. Also, comics.

In English: fuck if I know, mate.

I finished watching Yuri On Ice this week-end. I started on Jan 1 (after spending Dec 31 neckdeep in a horror comic, lmao), so it took me about a week to go through all twelve 22 minute episodes. I watched it with a mix of French and English subtitles.

I was told/knew about three things going in: that it's about iceskating, that it's very cute and that the animation's very good. Two out of three wasn't that bad.

It is indeed about iceskating! It is in fact very cute!

The animation is not very good. There are places where it is really good -- the scene with Viktor crying in the hotel, for example (tears are really hard to do well) -- and for the most part the non-skating parts are quite good. And Viktor is generally very pretty. The skating parts, however, are not.

I'm not just talking about the fact that they reuse the same animation for every routine. I'm talking about the fact that it isn't even good animation. Honestly, towards the end I was watching the titular Yuri On Ice routine going "yep, there goes Yuuri's giraffe neck again". It's like the animators forget and/or didn't have the budget for basic anatomy and proportions, which is a shame in a series that relies SO HEAVILY on iceskating routines. The pair skating at the end was gorgeous! That was the kind of quality I expected through out.

The animation in the opening is AWESOME. I especially enjoy the inkbrush effect in the Yuuri and Yuri duo. My favourite part is Viktor's backwards crouching slide with hand outstretched, about 35s and 1m10s in.

I also could have done without the focus on Yuuri's weight in the first few episodes and Yuri calling him pig-names (specific insult varied depending on subs).

I did enjoy Yuri's Dramatic Guitar Riffs.

So yeah. That's Yuri On Ice. A very cute show in need of better animation.

Thank you for writing for me! I'm sure whatever you write me will be wonderful.

Feel free to poke around this journal or my Ao3 account (username: sevenofspade) if you want to. My letters tag is here.

I have five Do Not Wants: incest, rape, child abuse, character death and dysphoria. When these are canon, please don't focus on them. I would also prefer not to have to deal with people losing things important to them and toxic living arrangements, be that family or roomates. Thank you.

On the other hand, there are a lot of things I do want. Here’s a partial list. (I obviously don’t expect you to stick all of these in one story, that would be impossible.)

General likes )

Feel free to take prompts in whichever direction you like! And if none of my prompts work for you, then write whatever you want -- I'll be happy with anything.


Campaign (Podcast) (Any of: Bacta/Rendezvous "Vous-Vous" Valentine, Bacta/Zevowc, Leenik Geelo & Avaa Arek, Leenik Geelo/Tryst Valentine, Lyntel'luroon & Bacta, Lyntel'luroon & Tamlin Jorun, Lyntel'luroon/Aava Arek, Lyntel'luroon/Bacta, Lyntel'luroon/Bacta/Rendezvous "Vous-Vous" Valentine, Lyntel'luroon/Grizelle Jorun, Lyntel'luroon/Original Female Character, Lyntel'luroon/Original Princess Character, Lyntel'luroon/Rendezvous "Vous-Vous" Valentine, Lyntel'luroon/Zara "Princess" Zoisite, Pepper Tupp & Pine Coneman, Sneak/Tubaik, Tamlin Jorun & Bacta, Tamlin Jorun & Tony Vornskr)

I LOVE THIS DYSFUNCTIONAL SPACE FAMILY WITH ALL MY HEART (Also, when Lyn got confirmed as canonically queer I texted a friend immediately -- she is is the queer alien Indiana Jones of my heart.)

Tamlin is THE CUTEST; and the Tamlin-narrated noir episodes are probably my favourites -- I have a very real weakness for noir. Bacta is very good at giving me clone feelings (and lol forever at the "I like your voice" exchange with Zevowk). Leenik's friendship with Avaa is endlessly charming. BASICALLY I LIKE EVERYONE IN THIS BAR


Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood & Manga (Greed (Ling) & Ling Yao (Manga), Paninya & Winry Rockbell (Manga), Winry Rockbell & Scar (Fullmetal Alchemist) (Manga) )

The relationship between Greed and Ling is fascinating and I would totally be up for fix-it, if that strikes your fancy. Tbh, I started shipping Winry/Paninya the moment Winry started gushing about the craft of Paninya's automail. Winry + Scar is the FMA relationship I wish we'd seen SO MUCH MORE of -- it's so complex and human and lovely.


Historical RPF (Hannibal Barca/Scipio Africanus)

I have a MASSIVE thing for enemies who care about and respect each other and those two hit it IN SPADES.

Feel free to have them meet at times they haven't (as far as we know) met, like after Cannae or Zama. Anything expanding on the meeting at Ephesus would also be brilliant. I am, always and forever, of the opinion that they both faked their own deaths to elope together. The AU in which they're both Roman! Or both Carthaginian! The AU in which they switch places. The AU in which it is a Pun-ic War (I LIKE PUNS). An AU in which the war goes differently -- maybe Rome surrenders after Cannae. Slavish devotion to historical accuracy not required! I'm looking for fic, not a research paper.


Locke & Key (Any of: Kinsey Locke & Jackie Veda, Kinsey Locke & Jordan Gates, Kinsey Locke/Dodge, Kinsey Locke/Jackie Veda, Kinsey Locke/Jordan Gates)

ALL THE FIX-IT FICS. So you know the part where Kinsey suggests going to prom with Jackie? YEAH. I'd love for Jordan and Kinsey to start their one good action a day club. Also I love the worldbuilding in this series.


Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016) (Jyn Erso/Mon Mothma (Rogue One) )

I've been shipping this since the first trailer. Mon's little smile when Jyn went "I rebel"! Anyway, what about a fix-it or maybe a canon-divergent AU. Undercover-as-Imperial!Jyn? Role reversal AU!


Star Wars: Rebels (Numa/Sabine Wren (Rebels) )

Femslash where they bond over explosions and have betrayed each other for their own goals in the past! Plus I think that there could be something really interesting made out of Numa's relationship with the clones (Boil & Waxer) and Sabine's Mandalorian origin. But mostly explosions and make-outs.


Star Wars: The Clone Wars (2008) - All Media Types (Padmé Amidala & Ahsoka Tano (Clone Wars), Padmé Amidala/Riyo Chuchi (Clone Wars), Plo Koon & CC-3636 | Wolffe (Clone Wars), Plo Koon/CC-3636 | Wolffe (Clone Wars), Riyo Chuchi/Ahsoka Tano (Clone Wars), Steela Gerrera/Ahsoka Tano (Clone Wars) )

I really enjoyed all the politics episodes in Clone Wars, and not just because they featured Padmé. I just enjoy fictional power games a lot. I love both Padmé and Riyo Chuchi a lot! Either/both of them (plus Ahsoka?) being friends and doing politics and/or investigating a crime would be cool. I really love Ahsoka too! Her and Steela would be an awesome couple -- maybe future fic circa Rogue One? The relationship between Plo Koon and Wolfee, be it shippy or gen, gets me right in the clone feelings.


Thank you again so much for writing for me!

A brief intro post, following this friending meme.

1. I'm French. Mostly this shows up when I talk about the stuff I read in French and my complete inability to wish luck on anyone.

2. I currently have a most terrible case of the Star Wars, so that's where most of my fannish energy is going these days. Both here and in general, I tend to be very into gen and plot, but I'll ship pretty much anything and everything. My favourite thing is friendship fic and I really like taking odd/ridiculous concepts and making them work.

3. I write.[archiveofourown.org profile] sevenofspade is my Ao3 username. I also write original fiction novels (sf/f).

4. I mod two fannish exchanges ([community profile] nightonficmountain and [community profile] history_exchange ). I have ideas for other fannish challenges.

5. I love history A LOT. My longest running OTP is either Hannibal Barca/Scipio Africanus (Second Punic War) or Yoko Tsuno/Khany (French comics). Currently I'm thinking a lot about the Paris Commune.

6. I like comics a lot. I use comics to mean the medium, not just superheroes, although do like those too.

7. Folklore and mythology are awesome. (I feel like I should point out upfront that I grew up with a different Arthurian tradition than the Anglophone one.)

8. I draw. I rarely post about it, but I do it daily.


Yup. That's me.

dhampyresa: (Default)
Let's start 2017 off in a positive way with a Pay It Forward meme. The first 6 people to comment (and more if I can manage it) will receive a surprise from me at some point in 2017 - anything from a book, a ticket, something home-grown or made, a postcard, absolutely any surprise! It will happen when the mood comes over me and I find something that I believe would suit you and make you happy.

(If you don't like surprises and would rather have something off a wishlist and/or some warning, let me know in your comment. The goal is to make you happy.)

If you can, post this in your own journal and pay it forward. Let's do more kind and loving things for each other in 2017, without any reason other than to make each other smile and show that we think of each other.
dhampyresa: (This is my life)
I wrote six fics for yuletide, including my assignment and a pinch-hit.

TO-DO LIST:
1. Try to find Angela's mother.
2. Try to locate the lost Furnace of the Hierophants.
3. Declare War on the Queendom of Heven.

Sera and Angela work on #2.

This was my assignment. I didn't start writing until late in the exchange period, because I was waiting for the letter to update. Especially since I regretting offering this fandom as soon as sign-ups closed, on account of not having a back-up plan in case of no prompt. I canon-reviewed and came up with semi-plotty (sort of shippy) gen post-canon fic. I have no idea if my recip is familiar with Fear Itself as an event (pro tip for people requesting franchises in exchanges: specify which parts you're familiar with), but hopefully the plot point in the fic that rests on that is explained well enough in text. I'm mostly happy with this fic, even if it's a bit rushed.

This was my pinch-hit. DHAMPYRESA, WRITING ABOUT THE SECOND PUNIC WAR? MORE LIKELY THAN YOU THINK! I only realised late that there's a thing in this that is similar to a scene in Mulan. Oops? Also featuring important science fact: Flour is an explosive substance.


Treats, in posting order.

Summary:

After Johnny Storm's rebellion, Stephen Strange and God-Emperor Doom had a talk.


I decided pretty early on that, by hook or by crook, there was going to be a Secret Wars fic in yuletide this year. Because Reasons. So I wrote this fic. I wish I could have written a Strange/Doom fic, because I couldn't find time to reread Triumph and Torment, which is where most of my Strange/Doom feelings come from. I'm quite happy with this, anyway. My recip had great prompts! I tried to use as much of them as I could.

It took me years, but I finally wrote some Yoko/Khany! This was really hard for me to write because writing fic for a canon in French is weird. But I did it and I quite like how this turned out. Femslash IN SPACE with some alien worldbuilding!

Gwen and the crew celebrate Pantsgiving.


Pretty much last minute treat -- you can tell because it draws on this year's holiday annual. Gwenpool is a great comic. A++, definitely reccomend. Team of misfits celebrates ridiculous holiday!


General note: I don't write treats I'm finished with my assignment in exchanges, which really fucked me over, time-wise, this year. Everything ended up kind of rushed, but I figured "rushed treat > no treat".

(I do regret that I couldn't finish the fic I had started for [personal profile] nomadicwriter in time for yuletide -- I have a finished draft now, but alas, too late, except for NYR --, but I burned out. Am still burned out, tbh. I wish [community profile] fandom_stocking had reveals mid-to-late January instead of early Jan.)

And if you're wondering whether I'm going to write fic for it in the style of a Norse saga (like I did for The Force Awakens)? The answer is yes. I might need to see it again first, but it's happening.

You know what? I'm also going to consider this one canon.



Speaking of Star Wars! I still haven't seen Rogue One.

Tbh, right now, between wanting to avoid spoilers and also wanting to WRITE ALL THE YULETIDE*, I'm staying away from the internet for the next while.

* I claimed a pinch-hit and also I have like five fics I want to finish and post so it is A LOT of yuletide.
dhampyresa: (A most terrible case of the Star Wars)
Tomorrow evening I'm might try to see Rogue One at the late night double feature picture show.

Then I'm going to wake up before dawn to go out of town for the week-end to visit family. See y'all on Monday.

dhampyresa: (SCIENCE SMASH)
When I posted Sea Change (Star Wars AotC canon-divergent AU) I mentionned that "this is the third fic I've written with a title from The Tempest, but the first one posted".

Here's one of those two other fics titled after quotes from Billy Shakes' Tempest. I wrote this originally in 2014 -- there was a discussion about people with the same name switching places, and so I started thinking about Hannibal Sefton and Hannibal Barca.

CURRENTLY AIRING SHOWS

Star Wars Rebels
: S03E10: MAUL!!!
I am endlessly entertained by Maul and I don't even know why. I'm really hoping we get to see him, Sabine and the darksaber interact (not necessarily all at once).
Also. Dude. WRITING IN BLOOD. Creepy. Quit it.


The Librarians: S03E04: The twist was quite well done, even though I guessed most of it ahead of time. I VASTLY prefer Jenkins to Flynn. And awwwwwwwwwwww the Library cares!


Legends of Tomorrow: S02E07: Have not caught up.


NOT CURRENTLY AIRING

Luke Cage: S1E010: No progress.

Miraculous Ladybug: S01E17 and S01E18: I was very surprised that the teenaged goth's supervillainous (semi-idealised?) villainous alter ego was wearing a bright hot oink tutu and heels, up until there was aline from someone else saying similar to "I don't know how much longer I stand to stay in this body" which huh. Okay. It makes some sort of sense now as a dysporia thing. *reads too much into things* Also, I was suprisingly into girl!Chat Noir/Ladybug. Show remains very cute.

Nirvana in Fire: E06: Have made no progress.


I am also watching the series finale of Person of Interest on TV. SPOILERS I am oddly disappointed that not everybody died -- idk, I was looking forward to some prime "heroic sacrifice falls, everybody dies" stuff. There was some heroic sacrifice but not all and it's just not the same, man. I might feel different if I was more attached to the characters. Then again, I might not. IDK OKAY. Apparently lately I can only enjoy two sorts of media: all of the tragedy and none of the tragedy. Very Specific Levels Of Sadness. Heh. There's always Rogue One, hopefully. END SPOILERS


And now I am writing ALL THE YULETIDE.

dhampyresa: Paris coat of arms: Gules, on waves of the sea in base a ship in full sail Argent, a chief Azure semé-de-lys Or (fluctuat nec mergitur)
I went to see Moana in 3D VF (ie: in French).

It was very cute! I enjoyed it greatly.

The animation was fantastic -- the CG for the water's amazing -- and I quite liked the songs, but my favourite thing about the movie was Vaiana/Moana. SHE IS THE CUTEST AND THE BEST. And her drive for the sea and to go beyond the horizon -- I feel you, girl.

[archiveofourown.org profile] isaakfvkampfer translated Five people on StarKiller Base who didn't listen to Anakin Skywalker (and one who did) into Chinese / 中文 as [Translation]弑星者基地上不愿听安走天说话的五人(还有个真听了).

I ran the the whole thing through google translate and my favourite thing is the way Anakin's "Way harsh, dude" became "This is a bit too much, man". (Also, if I understand the question in the ending notes properly, the answer is that it's not about Kylo Ren and it's never been about Kylo Ren -- it's always been about Anakin and his issues and Vader; Anakin is not the most reliable of narators.)
