Molesworth: Hullo Clouds

Not my blog

I'm coming to realize just how many of my Livejournal friends don't know about my actual blog! My livejournal is just for art posts and fandom stuff. All else can be found at Cult of Lincoln. So now you know!

Dresden Files: Fuego!

Chromatic Dresden

A few months ago, a bunch of fandom folks created a meme for re-casting popular movies, tv shows, and books with actors of color. There's a huge bunch of them here, if you want to check them out!

Here's a handful of those we've picked for a Chromatic Dresden...Collapse )Keep the party going in the comments or using the #ChromaticDresden hashtag on Twitter!

Mistborn fanfic: Looking Out

Hurrah, Yuletide authors have been revealed! I can now say that I wrote the Mistborn fanfic "Looking Out" for alphabet26. It stars Spook before he was Spook and Kelsier while he was still becoming Kelsier. :D I had an absolute blast writing it! And as far as I'm aware, it's the first non-crossover Mistborn fic on the interwebs, which boggles the mind a bit. Yay for breaking new ground in fandom!

The fic I received was "A Castle Family Outing" by emmademarais. Give her love and comments, because she deserves all the praise and glee she can get!

Alera map is here!

The time is finally upon us! Check out the map I illustrated for Jim Butcher's First Lord's Fury, which hits stores November 24th. For those new to my mapsquee, FLF is the sixth book in the internationally bestselling fantasy series The Codex Alera. I'm so thrilled to be a part of it.

Download the map as desktop wallpaper in about every desktop size imaginable:


I'm eager to hear your thoughts. :D

Dear Yuletide Santa... (2009)

Dear yuletide Santa,

Hey, there! Thanks so much for signing up for this ficathon. I hope you enjoy working with my prompts. If they don't inspire you, don't worry. I'm sure I'll love whatever you create, and I want you to have as much fun as possible writing it! Feel free to throw anything and everything out the window if you're not enjoying yourself.

To begin, let me tell you a little about myself. I'm an unrepentant (yet hopefully not tinhatted) shipper who tends to orient towards canon and subtextual canon ships. I prefer not to read slash stories pairing characters who are canonically straight. Of course, these prompts lend themselves more to gen fics than shippy ones, but if for whatever reason you want to go a different direction, I felt inclined to throw that out there.

I enjoy reading fics from almost anywhere in the emotional spectrum, though I tend to shy away from soul-sucking angst-wallowing and excessive violence. Anyway, my prompts don't really lend themselves to soul-sucking angst-wallowing, so I think we're good on that count! Character-bashing is a major turn-off. I delight in seeing characters enjoying themselves and each other, and I dig banter and UST with a backhoe. "Competence porn" is always a treat.

Thanks again! I can't wait to see what you come up with.
