He, in particular, and Granada Sherlock in general was as close to canon as we’re likely to ever get.
Help me prove a point
I have never reblogged anything faster.
Many fics are art, many books are crap.
Signups Now Open for the Sons of Gondor Trick or Treat Fiction/Art Exchange!
It’s that time of year again! Now’s the time to sign up for the Ninth Annual Sons of Gondor Trick or Treat Fic/Art Exchange.
This is our first year trying out the Archive of Our Own, so please bear with us as we navigate the bumps and kinks that come with learning a new system. Feedback is appreciated and encouraged, especially during the sign-up process.
This exchange is open to both fiction and artwork, FPF and RPF, slash (m/m and f/f), het and gen. Single-character pieces, pairings and groups (OT3+) are welcome. Our only requirement is that at least ONE of your requested characters is a son/daughter of Gondor, character or actor. (And if you’re only interested in FPF or RPF, not both, we can accommodate that too.)
Fics should be at least 500 words long, artwork at least a couple hours’ work.
Signups are currently open, and go through to Sun. Sept. 21, 11:59 pm Pacific Time. All fiction/art is due Oct. 24 (11:59 pm Pacific Time), and will be revealed on Oct. 31. Announcements and updates will be available at sons_of_gondor as the exchange progresses.
We’ve had a lot of fun in the past, and there’s plenty of room for everyone, from die-hard OTPers to people looking to scratch that really rare pairing itch. So no matter what turns your crank, be it Men with Men (or Women with Women, or Men with Women, or Men or Women alone, etc.), Men with Hobbits, with Elves, with Dwarves, Orcs or Ents, so long as one half of the (FPF or RPF) pairing is (loosely) Gondorian, you’re welcome in our pool.
So come on over and play with us! Please spread the word, and Happy Trick or Treating!
I’m so glad to see this great tradition continued!
Pairing: Gen - Dean, Jared, Richard, Graham and Cate
Warnings: Dean’s Bachelor Party
So areyougonnakeepthat and I have been writing this Aidan Turner/Dean O’Gorman professor AU (which you can find here—now completed!) Now taking requests because I’m lazy and doing a fitness challenge so… sometimes I’m not hella creative. Give me prompts. Anon is on so you can ask whatever.
You see, Dean and Aidan agreed that at their bachelor parties they could have one last Single Kiss. It could be anyone. Just a kiss. Just for fun. It wasn’t mandatory if either felt uncomfortable they didn’t have to and they trust each other enough that it’s not a big thing.
But you see, Rich finds out about this and… well… you try telling Rich to not compete for something like that.
Yay! I love this series so much!
The MacArthur Foundation awarded lesbian cartoonist Alison Bechdel one of its coveted Genius Grants. The only requirement of the $625,000 award is that Bechdel and the 20 other recipients continue doing the good work they were already doing.
So, hopefully this means Bechdel will continue doing revolutionary work related to film, family and culture. Her name was on everyone’s lips starting last…
"It’s a really rich period in history, where this giant opposition we had going for 10 years with the Nazis is gone, and we’re not completely positive what the rules are anymore," Markus said. "Who gets the scientists? Who gets the secrets? It’s all on the table. Everyone developed these skills in World War II. People became spies, people became murderers. And suddenly the war was over, and they came back, and it’s like, ‘Wow, I know how to do some shit. Now, what do I do with this?’ It’s nice to play with that assortment of characters. An office, basically full of people who just came back from the war. There’s no telling what any of them experienced last year."
"We have a tendency to think of history as this fixed thing," McFeely added. “‘Oh, that’s right. Good guys won, 1945. Then it was the ’50s.’ It’s just not the case. Everything was up for grabs for quite a while, and murky. We didn’t know we really won.""
Dear Markus & McFeely: No, please, make me more excited about where you’re taking this series. I insist. (Ohmygosh. If this is written half as well as I’m hoping it is…)
Very promising indeed!
