vid rec: Sweet Apocalypse
Action/Drama, AU; can be read as gen or McShep; Characters: Sheppard, McKay, supporting characters: Kolya, Elizabeth, Carson, WraithSummary:
Kolya is a bounty hunter working for the Wraith in exchange for a steady supply of Enzymes. John's next on the list. This is what happened...
Constructed Reality, very convincingly done. A cool, fun, atmosperic vid with great storytelling and pacing. I enjoyed watching it a lot; it was much like reading fic.
Page seven of The Long Way Home is inked, here's a little outtake. Not the funny kind of outtake... more like the 'guh, I'm an idiot' kind - I got carried away while inking and my thumbs tend to be on the vague side... just a few squiggly lines to indicate camera angle, balloon placement, not so much with the details. It didn't occur to me to check the script while inking, and when I finally did I noticed that the line in that panel has to go to Rodney. Ah, maybe I can find a home for my Shep someplace else.
It's amnesty month at sga_flashfic
, and though I didn't find the perfect prompt to give meaning to my poor, half-finished McShep gen picture, I did get an idea for another prompt which I really like. It's a kind of Atlantis/Sleepy Hollow pastiche and I see the scene crystal-clear before my inner eye. So if time allows, I'll try to squeeze that in somehow before I go back to the comic. It's just one panel after all, albeit a fairly large, complex one. Still, could be done in a day or two. Now I only have to find a day or two.
Once more I'm feeling this bizarre disconnect with the fandom because, once again, I quite enjoyed this week's Stargate episode (Infection), only to come online and find that most of the fandom (or at least my corner of it) is currently watching a different show than I am. I guess for the remainder of the season the only way to go is read the friends list heavily filtered on days following new episodes. I'm not making the mistake again of reading random reviews linked on the newsletter. Seriously, every time I see someone bash Keller
an angel loses its wings
I want to make Keller fanart. And I got enough ideas as it is.
(This mini-rant, by the way, was brought to you by LJ blacking out just as I was about to post.)
