Leverage vid rec:
[livejournal.com profile] valawenel made a great Leverage Movie Trailer.
(If LJ is down watch on youtube.)
team vid, Eliot-centric; action/constructed reality; 4:00 min

I love well-done constructed reality-vids! Hard to believe this is her first fanvid - it does a great job of hinting at the larger story behind it, and it has that actual trailer feeling. I didn't read the story it was inspired by as I don't read much Eliot-centric fic but I'm thinking I might add it to my reading list now.

Here's a bit'o fanart I made for Leverage mini bingo: The many faces of Sophie Devereaux )

I have a head full of inspiration for traditional fanart but drawing any of that stuff would take too much time atm, considering I got almost no work done in the past three days and am not allowed any more goofing off until I do! It doesn't help that nothing much seems to be going on on the publishers' side, with the Easter holidays coming up.

(It also doesn't help that I somehow started to re-read a really cool, really long DS9 fic this morning...)

It's a tight race over on Fandom Steel Cage Match and Parker currently needs only 9 more votes to take the lead over Peggy Olson from Mad Men. I'm just sayin'...

Here, a vid with the best Parker moments. You can see it's a pretty long vid! That's a lot of great moments! And that's just season one!

I'm in Leverage withdrawal so I browsed youtube for vids and came across one of the funniest scenes...
aka The One Where Nate Stalls Sterling from The Maltese Falcon Job.
(fast forward to 1:00)
We used to play this game when we were kids. :D

And for something not fandom: An incredible, time-lapse vision of fireflies in the wild

Still no progress on my very random hippogriff pic but now I'm halfway through book three of The Hunger Games. Also got feedback for my cover art so I can start on the detailed sketches, which is good because I was getting slightly antsy.

Couple more character sketches from Leverage. (Sophie, Hardison, and Eliot (but that one's really a very quick, rough sketch)). For Sophie's I tried coloring directly on printouts of the pencils rather than inking it. Images behind the cut )

I scribbled around and ended up with a sketch of Parker teaching Hardison how to skateboard.
Skateboarding is all about balance so I bet Parker would be a natural at it. Sadly that doesn't fit any of my bingo cards even if I interpret the prompts really generously.

For the field 'Knives'
Characters: Sophie, Nate, and... someone else
Rating: PG-13, bit of violence

Another fill for the fashion history meme:
for [livejournal.com profile] cornerofmadness, Spike in a Zoot suit. larger pic under the cut )

And two more pics I still had in a folder but hadn't posted yet: Eliot, looking grumpy. And Nate with a hat, probably plotting something. Heh.

The Zombie Apocalypse Job by monkeytwin (Leverage)
team with some Nate/Sophie; minor crossover with SPN; PG-13; 6,973 words
Summary: Pretty much exactly as advertized.
reccer's note: Due to the format of this fic some of the chapters are very short; to get the entire story in one file go to the fanfic downloader at FLAG, enter the story ID (6566093) into the top field that says 'Source URL / ID' and pick your format of choice.

Nicely creepy and action-filled. The story covers a longer time frame, showing snapshots of events here and there, and it brings things to a satisfying end. I'd love to read an epic 100,000 words version of this apocafic but these glimpses are already very entertaining.

Bonus rec: Leverage - Season 1 Official Recap

Because I'm all filled with show-love and the sudden desire to pimp my show. If you've been interested in checking out Leverage, this trailer gives an idea what it's about. (Almost no major spoilers) The current season just finished, what better time to catch up. :o)

Finished watching the latest Leverage. Wow, is all I'm saying. I'm glad I was (mostly) unspoiled.

And speaking of, [personal profile] schneefink has a few interesting Leverage/Stargate crossover plotbunnies up for adoption. They practically beg to be written. Check it out: link

And 'cuz it's a bit late to write a fresh fic rec here's one of my favorite autocorrects.

youtube rec: Aldis Hodge presents THE HAND JOBS - Getting What You Want The LEVERAGE Way
Actor Aldis Hodge uses his skills from the TV show LEVERAGE to rip people off, get even and maybe, just maybe, get a pony.

notes: contains no spoilers for the show. But a fair amount of crack. Also, bad things happening to hastily scribbled cartoon bunnies.

Ta-daa, my [livejournal.com profile] leverage_bingo card. I still have an unfinished Fight Bingo line but I couldn't resist this one. As luck would have it I'm having a few days off now. :)

I'd planned to work on the rest of my Bingo line first, but this sketch was sitting there and inking and coloring it was too tempting...
