ansketil: (amadeus - the emperor & mozart)
So... coming off official hiatus! Hurrah! I might still be a bit flaky given how busy I am at the moment, but I had to come back. 

I've changed my mood theme and I'm thinking about changing my journal style too. I still love it - but it's been too long. In any case, to celebrate, here's another piece of Harry Potter fanart:

ansketil: (lord voldemort)
Breaking my hiatus to post the art I randomly did really late last night. Voldemort fanart inspired by Klimt's 'Medicine'.

(EDIT: Sorry, livejournal was being irritating and I accidentally posted this twice. Apologies to your f-lists.)

ansketil: (palpatine - all things)
Title: Three Syllables
Disclaimer: I do not own Star Wars and am just mucking about with Palpatine.
Rating: G
Word Count: A couple of paragraphs - :P
Characters: Palpatine
Summary: Some sacrifices cost more than others.
Author's Note: This was meant to be my "Ten Things Palpatine" for [livejournal.com profile] darth_eldritch, but instead it turned into this and I couldn't add anything else to it. A pleasant diversion while working on much longer stories. Just one of many possible explanations for the mystery that is Palpatine.

Ten Things Lucius Malfoy for [livejournal.com profile] aleysiasnape:

One:

Lucius Malfoy understood from a very young age that he was expected to uphold his family's honour and that this meant concealing his feelings and not crying at his mother's funeral. All his cousins watched with equally dry faces except little Cissy Black, who was bawling her eyes out, her blue eyes shimmering with fat tears, and he saw the despair he felt reflected in her. It seemed terrible that the only person weeping in a sea of stoic faces was his four year-old second cousin who had only met his mother twice. Lucius wasn't permitted to weep himself, standing in his stiff mourning robes under the cold gaze of his father... but he knew as he took the young girl's hand that it just might be all right to comfort someone else.

I still have to write those "10 Things" stories, and finish a segment for [livejournal.com profile] veronicaprof, but I just found this in my sketchbook and decided it was time to finish it. Art for[livejournal.com profile] zigsternenstaub's lovely AU tale, Things My Daughter Should Know After I've Died. She and I promised each other ages ago that if I managed to draw fem!Anakin and fem!Palpatine art, then she would write the sequel, or visa versa. Lady Anyel Palpatine was incredibly uncooperative, but eventually I got Her Excellency's lines right, while Jedi Anaka Skywalker was quite fun to draw. There you go, Ziggy!

Because that art tag needed more posts. Just a basic sketch of Lord Voldemort and Hermione Granger having a talk, for my fanfiction You Know Who? I haven't drawn Hermione before, and I'm not satisfied with her but meh, it's 12.29am - I'm only going to make her look worse if I keep going. I like Voldemort though - but I've drawn him before. He's starting to look about what I envision. More depth that my last attempt at him.

 Time for some icons! Because I've yet to find Voldemort colouring I really love and I haven't made any icons in a while. 16 Harry Potter and 5 Star Wars ones.

 ALEXIS V: THE ENCHANTED CASTLE
Disclaimer: As always, everything belongs to Mr. Lucas, and I am making no money.
Rating: R
Word Count: 5, 200
Warnings: Adult concepts and themes, slash, violence, fascism, the Emperor in sexual situations, relationship between a twenty year-old and a septuagenarian.
Summary: Palpatine comes to terms with his relationship with Alexis and Alexis takes a trip to Theed and meets a friend.
Characters: Palpatine and pretty much everyone you’d expect to see at the Imperial Court circa A New Hope, plus some OCs
Genre(s): Romance, tragedy, drama
Pairing(s): Palpatine/male!OC, Moteé/Pestage
Author's Note:  I maintain that the Emperor is allowed to make equine metaphors, as equestrian statues in Theed tell us there were once horses on Naboo. Thank you to [livejournal.com profile] zigsternenstaub for giving me a lot of help with this story and lending me Vader expertise. This chapter brings us quite close to the central themes of this tale. I did write out the scene with Vader but decided it distracted too much from the central story line, so Vader is going to get his limelight back on Coruscant. I'm so sorry, [livejournal.com profile] luminations, here's another long story you have to find time to comment on! ;)

Title: A Period of Rest
Disclaimer:
I own neither Vader nor Palpatine and I am not making any money. Sad, but true.
Rating:
PG
Summary:
Emperor Palpatine has been prescribed several days of rest.
Word Count:
Negligible
Characters: The Emperor and Lord Vader
Author's Note: The little bit of light-heartedness I so desperately needed today. *headdesk*
ansketil: (Joseph II (Amadeus))
Palpatine icons numbering eight in total. My icon-making skills are slowly improving, I think.
 
   
ansketil: (linus - THESE HANDS)
Title: Down the Plot Hole
Disclaimer: I do not own Harry Potter. I am merely playing with Rowling's toys.
Warnings: Crude language and classical references.
Rating: PGR
Characters: Harry Potter, Lord Voldemort
Summary: Harry Potter mistakenly decides to go back in time and save the world! Fortunately, Lord Voldemort is there to prevent Harry destroying it in the process. Time-turner meta!fic - strictly canon compliant!
Author's Notes: This just randomly appeared in my head fully-formed, I suspect it's cause was discussing meta fanfiction with [livejournal.com profile] zigsternenstaub. It's about... why characters aren't allowed time-travel plots (except the one) in Harry Potter. Please, forgive me for Voldemort's classical references. Rowling herself quotes Aeschylus at the beginning of Deathly Hallows. I am referencing the great debate in Aristophanes' Frogs, where Aeschylus and Euripides are arguing who is the greater poet. Voldemort is concerned about the way villainous characters end up in Aeschylus' plays, as opposed to those of Euripides. I believe he'd like to see himself as a Medea. Wow, I've spent longer explaining it, than it features in the story! On with the action!

Title: Dark Liaisons II
Disclaimer: I do not own Les Liaisons Dangereuses or Star Wars.
Characters: Count Dooku, Palpatine, Padmé Amidala, Anakin Skywalker, and Obi-Wan Kenobi.
Rating: PG-13
Summary: Master Kenobi reports his progress and Anakin expresses his love.
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've always been very dissatisfied with how the Harry Potter films handled Lord Voldemort's appearance. So here is a drawing in watercolour pencils which tries to capture how I first imagined him to be, surrounded by lovely Avada Kedavra green. As always, it looks better viewed in its original size. :)  

 
ansketil: (Coruscant)
Title: Dark Liaisons I
Disclaimer: I do not own Les Liaisons Dangereuses or Star Wars.
Characters: Count Dooku, Palpatine, & Obi-Wan Kenobi (possibly more to follow). 
Rating: PG-13
Summary: Dooku has left the Jedi Order and receives a communique from Chancellor Palpatine.
Author's Note: I was rereading Les Liaisons Dangereuses and Labyrinth of Evil and the two sort of... collided. And this happened. I may write more if people like it.

Challenge 2011-06: Hate
Word Count: 100

Rating: PG-13

Title: Crash: Chapter One
Disclaimer: I do not own Star Wars and am not making any money with this story.
Rating: PGR
Warnings: None
Characters: Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Supreme Chancellor Palpatine. Oh, and Artoo, of course...
Summary: What if Anakin hadn't managed to land the Invisible Hand safely on Coruscant? What if the ship's crash had been fatal? And what if one of the passengers on that doomed ship had the power to save himself... a power he could not fully control?
Author's Note: For dramatic purposes, in this fanfiction neither Anakin, nor Obi-Wan have ever been to Korriban. [livejournal.com profile] wyncatastrophe  ordered me to write more fanfiction, so here it is. You may need to read the prologue again, I posted it so long ago. The characters aren't going to find out they're in a time-travel story for quite a while. This is probably to closest I've ever got to writing an adventure story, so I'm trying to mix the serious adventure with some comedy, the way the films do. Please tell me if the comedy works, as I'm not at all home in the adventure genre.

Title: You Know Who?
Disclaimer: I don't own Harry Potter and am making no money from this story. The characters belong to J. K. Rowling; I am just playing with them for my own amusement and hopefully those of others.
Rating: T
Characters: Hermione Granger, Lord Voldemort, plus the general cast of characters appearing in Deathly Hallows.
Pairing: Hermione/Voldemort (note: when it says Voldemort it means Voldemort, not Tom Riddle).
Summary: What would you do if you woke up with no memory, looking like a monster, stuck in a room with a giant snake? Well, Lord Voldemort is in exactly that situation when magic brings him to the home of Hermione Granger.
Author's Notes: The sixth chapter of the rewrite. Another big chunk of Deathly Hallows is in this chapter, again necessary for the story – for Voldemort's character development, to be precise. I always liked rereading this particular bit in the book, though, so hopefully all of you won't mind.

Author's Notes: The fifth chapter of the rewrite. I've basically resigned myself to linking you guys to the fanfiction.net version - which I hate doing! - just because livejournal requires me to go through and redo all my italics, and because of my fond love of italics, I just can't face doing it. Comment in this post, or at ff.net, as you prefer.
