gwinna: (Vader - menacing)
I recced Star Wars fics (and one vid) at [livejournal.com profile] crack_van during the month of February. Unfortunately, even though I spent all day February 29th writing the last two recs I had planned, and actually did finish them before midnight, my posting access had already been taken away. :( Of course it was my own fault for procrastinating, but that doesn't make it any less annoying (it might even be more annoying). Oh well, I suppose I should look on the bright side: this means that the next time I sign up, I'll already have two recs written and ready to go.

Anyway, here are the links to my recs:

( Food Scandal by Malicean )

( Absolution by Leia Naberrie )

( VID REC: In the End by TinkleFilms )

( Dangerous History by MaraLSky )

Bonus Harry/Pansy fic that I recced during free flying month at [livejournal.com profile] crack_broom way back when:

Since I've started making icons on a more regular basis, I've created a community to post them in. The reason I'm not just posting them here is because I'll probably make icon posts more frequently than non-icon posts, so if I didn't separate them out people might start thinking this was an icon journal. And as I do still want to post about other, non-icon things here when the mood strikes me (even if that doesn't happen very often), my icons will be posted at [livejournal.com profile] galazygraphics, and this will remain my everything-except-graphics journal.

Anyway, there's not much there yet, but go check out [livejournal.com profile] galazygraphics!




Most of these icons haven't been posted yet, so think of this as a sneak preview of what's to come. :)
gwinna: (Palpatine - most evil)
So, I was rewatching the Star Wars prequels recently, and it occurred to me that I had never listened to the audio commentary for Revenge of the Sith. Accordingly I went and did so, and it was very interesting, but there was one thing George Lucas said which struck me as rather bizarre and incredible. I quote:

One of the issues in all of this is, that bad guys think they're good, and Lord Sidious thinks he's bringing peace to the galaxy, because there's so much corruption and confusion and chaos going on, and that now he's going to be able to straighten everything out, which may be true, but the price the galaxy's going to have to pay for it is way too much. -- George Lucas, RotS commentary


All I can say is, if that is what Lucas was trying to convey, he failed signally. I have never once considered that Palpatine might genuinely have wanted to bring peace to the galaxy. It never even occurred to me as a possible interpretation of his character. Nor have I ever come across such an interpretation in either fanfic or profic (admittedly I haven't read much profic, but since I like Palpatine I have read a decent amount of fanfic about him).

During the month of July I recced genfic at [livejournal.com profile] crack_broom. Linking to my recs here for reference purposes (and because I haven't posted anything in my journal for months).

( Mud, Blood & the Sound of Guns by chase glasslace )

( The Reason Most Squibs Have Cats by Phoebonica )

( When you read this, I'll be gone by trux )

( Black Family Fire by Loki Mischeif-Maker )
gwinna: (Clone Wars!Anakin)
For once I got to see an episode of the Clone Wars when it aired! So I thought I would write up my thoughts. And it really is just random thoughts, not a formal review.

~ While I was glad to see more Anakin/Padme interaction, I thought it was rather stilted and not very well done. I was a bit surprised that they had Anakin come right out and say that his love for Padme is more important to him than his duty to the Jedi Order and the galaxy so early on. Also, the set-up for Anakin's losing his lightsaber doesn't really make much sense. I thought that, though their marriage is a secret, Anakin and Padme are friends openly, and as such there's no need for Anakin to hide when Bail comes in. The way RotS makes it look, Anakin hangs out in Palpatine's office all the time; surely it wouldn't be strange for him to visit Padme as well. He could even have pretended he was there on official business. And there was plenty of time for Padme to slip Anakin his lightsaber. Or she could have left it on her desk when she left; Bail had already turned away.

more ramblings ahead )

I have decided to post a list of Naruto fanfiction recs, mostly for my own benefit. I haven't read as much Naruto fanfiction as I would like (and certainly haven't reviewed as many of these as I would like), but these are my personal favorite fics. In other words, this list is subjective.

The title and author of the fic will be followed by the characters or pairing involved and the rating. The stories are loosely organized into groups by character, but otherwise they are in no particular order. I list the rating as the author has listed it, so the rating system used will vary. Ratings of R/M or higher will be in red. If a story is incomplete, it will be marked as a WIP.

After reading this thread at the TFN message board, I've been thinking about what might happen later in the Clone Wars series, and what I'd like to see happen.

gwinna: (draco/hermione)
During the month of November I recced Draco/Hermione fics at [livejournal.com profile] crack_broom, a multi-ship Harry Potter rec community based on the multi-fandom rec community [livejournal.com profile] crack_van (both these comms are awesome places for finding good stories to read, by the way). I thought I would link to my recs here to prove that I do occasionally - well, very occasionally - post stuff on livejournal. *g*

I don't really love Draco/Hermione the way I used to, but I read tons and tons of amazing fics during my period of obsession, and it's nice to be able to tell people how amazing they are. Or at least a few of them.

( By the Way by provocative envy )

( Pure Blood by Marionette )

( Frost Blue by Incarnadine )

( The Chronicles of Draco Malfoy by zarah joyce )

Yay, I actually contributed something to fandom for once, instead of just lurking all the time the way I usually do.
