Omg... there are no words for the awesomeness... Although it does make me sad knowing that so many penguins died in the recent oil spill involving the shipwreck off the coast of New Zealand. Anyway, this tee/hoodie is currently sold out. I've requested a reprint and you should too! There is also this baroque Yoda tee. Ha - baroque curls - the only thing that could tempt me to wear that little green Jedi scum on my chest...



It kind of reminds me of this awesome The March of the Emperor spoof:



And while we're at it, the perfect Sith Lord penguin:

My f-list is getting too crazy and cluttered, but I've held off doing this for a while because I couldn't bear to. However, there are a lot of dead journals and journals of people who I don't really interact with any more - and it's spring here in Auckland and I'm too lazy for actual spring cleaning. If you find yourself de-friended and strenuously object - please comment below and I'll friend you again. :)

Edit: Cut is now complete.

Beta Editor: the lovely [livejournal.com profile] darth_eldritch
Author’s Notes: This was written for the [livejournal.com profile] hogwarts_elite "introduce a villain from another fandom" challenge and I'm finally posting it in my journal. The story mixes J.K. Rowling’s world with elements from the stories of H. P. Lovecraft and R. E. Howard, some of which later found their way into the Marvel universe. The villain I introduce is Father Set, accompanied by his children. Although I make use of Mythos lore in general, I particularly draw on The Nameless City and The Curse of Yig. It is not necessary to have read these stories in order to read this one, however. I was inspired by two drawings of Voldemort in Egypt by the amazing Lightpoint: In Search of Time and Bazaar. I must also recommend The Parselmouth, a fun website which renders words into “Parseltongue”. I had great fun getting the application to translate such phrases as: “Iä! Iä! Fhtagn! Tekeli-li!” into snake language. Creepily, the programme actually translates “Yig” into something frighteningly close to “Set”.

Title: Finishing the Bottle
Disclaimer: Own these characters, I do not. To G. Lucas they belong, yes.
Rating: NC-17
Warnings: Sexual content and fascism
Word Count: 7,100 approx.
Characters: Palpatine/Anakin
Summary: After being shocked by the feelings they have for one another, two people find each other unexpectedly through their secret lives.
Author's Note: I know I should be writing other things (like Alexis, I know!), but this one just came to me while reading Labyrinth of Evil and re-watching Attack of the Clones (it always amuses me when Anakin starts talking about what a good idea fascism is on his romantic picnic). It's also inspired by some ideas discussed with [livejournal.com profile] veronicaprof. I wanted to write something harking back to my older work with this pairing and just let go and write some erotica. I make no great claim to its artistic merit. This is my attempt at a sequel to the work of the gracious [livejournal.com profile] gizzi1213, who has generously given me permission to try my hand at something in the AU of her tale, The Lovers’ Wine. I hope it comes up to snuff. I usually don’t like to give Palpatine a first name, and when I do it’s my own invented name for him, but the original story was a gift for Wendy, so Palpatine’s private name is Dantius. His family name we never learn. Dedicated to everyone who has been begging me for sex between these two recently. You know who you are. You might also be interested to know the hilarious fact that if you type wine + play + kink into Google, the first thing that comes up are the lyrics to Good King Wenceslas. You might think that. I couldn’t possibly comment.
EDIT: Now with 75% less typos!

Here's my first piece of art for one of my favourite pairings: Voldemort/Harry. It's called Things Unsaid. I'm usually all about faces (as you will see below), so I wanted to try to tell a story with just bodies for a change. The colouring of this was absolutely ruined by scanning. Voldemort's pearly skin is too subtle for the scanner!
 

  

Below are three individual sketches that eventually turned the Harry Potter/Leo Tolstoy image pictured on the right, which I did for the [livejournal.com profile] hogwarts_elite "fandom mash-up" + Love and War themed challenge (tied for third place!).

This is the film I would make, set between Episode III and Episode IV:

Under the guidance of the Emperor, Darth Vader – once Anakin Skywalker – is learning what it is to be a Sith Lord. The peace of the new Empire is far from stable and many former Confederation star systems have yet to accept Palpatine’s rule. The political climate is fraught as many in the Imperial Senate struggle to reconcile themselves with the new system of government, Bail Organa among them.

Meanwhile, two Jedi padawans – their Masters slain in the Jedi Purge – can rely on no one but themselves in a galaxy now hostile to them – even the gambler who gives them passage to the Core, Calrissian, is more than he seems. And, despite the speed of Calrissian’s ship, a bounty-hunter called Fett is hot on their tracks, for they have something the galaxy would kill for: evidence Palpatine himself was responsible for the Clone Wars.

Queen Breha and her husband are walking the fine line between nurturing a fledgling Alliance against the Emperor and keeping the true identity of their daughter secret. Can they afford to help the young Jedi – especially when everything is on the line? And what will happen when Darth Vader, supervising the installation of Alderaan’s new governor – Wilhuff Tarkin – realises that all is not as it seems? The Galaxy has changed and nothing is certain. From the backstreets of Alderaan, to the wasted surface of Cato Nemoidia, to the scarlet corridors of the Imperial Senate, the air is thick with danger and no one is safe…

Title: The Forest Again
Word Count: 100
Rating: G

It’s a headlong, windborne rush of a journey – thought tumbling over thought with mile after mile – on footless, fleeting shadow. Harried by despair and driven onward by fear, crying out past fast-flying land and sea in a wordless shriek of thwarted fury.

Summer fills the forest, the same as when he’d left it: warm rocks, shallow streams, and a breeze rustling the leafy canopy. After coming so close, the sight dissolves his mind further into insanity. Eleven years. How many more? Will another even come? Is this to be my eternity?

He is not Lord Voldemort.

Voldemort would have won.

Author's Note: I was rereading Les Liaisons Dangereuses and Labyrinth of Evil and the two sort of... collided. In case people haven't realised, this is definitely an AU story. Things unfold slightly differently than in Attack of the Clones. I'm currently working on Alexis and You Know Who, but I desperately need to take myself somewhere else, so here is the next instalment of Star Wars letters.
