New Fandoms Are Scary, You Guys

So I haven't been around for a while, and mostly it's been due to my illustration course being a bit stressful and the band breakup and the stuff with Mikey changing the way I think about fandom. Basically I feel like it's stressing me out too much to continue being a fun release from everyday worries. So for the past few weeks I've taken a step back and concentrated on school and life for a while - and I let new fandoms in.

Snowflake Challenge - Day 14 and Day 15

Day 14

In your own space, write a love letter to Fandom in general, to a particular fandom, to a trope, a relationship, a character, or to your flist/circle/followers. Share you love and squee as loud as you want to. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

Day 15

In your own space, share a favorite memory about fandom: the first time you got into fandom, the last time a fanwork touched your heart, crazy times with fellow fans (whether on-line or off-line), a lovely comment you’ve received or have left for someone. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

I took a leaf out of 
[personal profile] argentumlupine 's book and made a podcast which sort od encompasses both days. Apologies in advance for rapid speed talking, hard-to-understand accent and no structure to my ranting whatsoever!

Love you, fandom! <333

Also, have a ridiculous little sketch which crosses over Bandom with Edward Scissorhands *waves hands* I don't know. Maybe I should post it over at
[community profile] bandom_meme .

So ridiculous )

Snowflake Challenge - Day 8

 Day 8
In your own space, talk about setting yourself a fannish goal. Big or small, it doesn't matter. Some examples: complete a bingo, sign up for a Big Bang, write that fic you've been thinking about for years, podfic that story that you love, make a fanmix for your fandom, post that bit of meta or reclist you keep putting off. Maybe resolve to be better at leaving feedback or answering comments. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

Snowflake Challenge - Day 7

 Day 7

In your own space, share something non-fannish about yourself. A passion or a hobby or a talent, something that people might not know about you. We are more than just our fandoms. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

Snowflake Challenge - Day One

In your own space, post a rec for at least three fanworks that you have created. It can be your favorite fanworks that you've created, or fanworks you feel no one ever saw, or fanworks you say would define you as a creator. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

I don't really talk my fanworks up that often, and I constantly compare them to other people's works, so I figured this would be good for me.

Two Industrial Loads on Hot

Fandom: Bandom (My Chemical Romance, Fall Out Boy, Cobra Starship, The Academy Is...)
Pairing: Frank Iero/Gerard Way, Frank Iero/Pete Wentz
Rating: Mature
Time: 19:22 minutes
Author's Summary:

Frank works the overnight shift at the laundromat, partially because it's easier to push prescription painkillers on the side in the middle of the night, but mostly because there are fewer disapproving old people around to tattle on him for playing The Floor Is Lava on the washing machines.

Three Fanarts, Old and New

So this is all bandom fanart that I sort of never got around to posting? Some of it's new, though. I'll post them in order of newest to oldest. These are pretty much SFW.

SFW, though it includes crossdressing. Click! )

Fic: Silly Office Romance Thing

Silly Office Romance Thing
Author: [personal profile] xojemmaxo 
Pairing: Frank/Mikey
Rating: R
Wordcount: 5576
Disclaimer: Don't own, don't sue.
Mikey's wasting away his life working a humdrum office job that was only meant to be temporary. Now he's stuck in a rut and he can't seem to find a good time to quit. Maybe Frank, the tiny tattooed receptionist who blows in, can finally put a stop to Mikey's excuses.

Influenced a fair bit by the British version of 'The Office'.

Podfic: Buzzed (written by synonomy)

Author: [livejournal.com profile]
Reader: [personal profile] xojemmaxo
Fandom: Bandom (My Chemical Romance)
Pairing: Frank/Gerard
Rating: Mature
40:16 mins
Author's Summary:

"You should," Frank gets out between snorts, "you should cut your hair."

"What?" Gerard wheezes.

"No, it's just - it's all stuck up." Frank shuffles forwards on his knees and then his hands are in Gerard's hair. Gerard's laughter dies down abruptly. Frank's fingers are surprisingly gentle on his scalp, ruffling it up, carding through it. "We'd probably have to wash it first, though," he says thoughtfully.

Reader's Notes: I've had my eye on this for ages now and I recorded it months ago, but it was just one of those podfics that I was never happy with. I re-edited last night and now I'm finally posting. \o/

Bandom_Meme Fill: Poison/Ghoul Sketch

Clicky! )

A little sketch I did for [personal profile] akamine_chan 's cute [community profile] bandom_meme prompt 'Party Poison/Fun Ghoul, kink: tenderness '. It's a kink-themed round at the moment, which sort of limits what I can draw as a lot of people are a bit squicked out by graphic, kinky drawings, so Aka's prompt was perfect. This is also a celebration of sorts ending my secondary schooling - now onto university!

Hope you enjoy!

Illustration for fangedfrerard challenge

So I finally finished my illustration for the [livejournal.com profile] fangedfrerard challenge! I drew a scene from [personal profile] akamine_chan 's amazing story burning up in the sun (seriously, go check it out!) and it was a lot of fun.
Here )is the illustration. I really hope you like it!

Illustration! Patrick/Mikey

Have some Autumny/Halloweeney goodness (There are pumpkins in the background, that makes it sort of Halloweeney, I guess)!

Basically I just wanted adorable boyfriends!Mikey and Patrick. Originally done for
[community profile] bandom_meme and realised I hadn't posted to my journal yet. Enjoy!

Bandom_meme Illustration!

I filled lucifuge5's prompt: "Touring is a total pain when you're a vampire nest."

This was a lot of fun to draw! I'm not exactly happy with the way it turned out (mostly it's the half-assed background) but the idea was great to work with. This is set sort of during early Revenge era. I messed around with canonical time frames a bit, I think.

I thought that if the band were vampires, they'd use an umbrella to stay out of the sun while they're outside. This picture makes no sense at all. If it were a fic, it would be crack.

Not many interesting things, but things! 

RL update: I've finally finished secondary school, officially! It feels great to never have another English class. Now all I have left is my exams and then it's (hopefully) off to uni!

I will have a little bit more free time for the next few weeks, so I can be more active in fandom. At the moment I've signed up for the 

[livejournal.com profile] fangedfrerard  fest/challenge for illustrating, so I'm really excited about that and it'll give me something to focus on besides revision. My brain will fry if I don't have a distraction.

I also signed up for [community profile] imadeathing but I've yet to choose a prompt - I think I will choose embroidery or needlework as I have a stupid big Mario Mushroom I should have finished a long time ago and I would like to get it finished over Christmas in time for the deadline. I'll probably also start about five other things because I just do that.

I'm still steadily editing what I have of various half-recorded podfics. I'm really wary of the sound quality changing as I stop/start recording, so I'm waiting for a long period of time in which I can just finish recording a whole bunch in one go.

I also drew some sketches! They're not illustrations for stories or anything, but at least I'm drawing. It's great to not have to draw things for school anymore.



Drawings! )

Also, I ordered a Smashing Pumpkins shirt from eBay and I'm really excited waiting for its arrival.

I hope everyone's okay! I've glanced a few podfics in my flist and I need to get around to listening and commenting. :D
