New Rule! Weekend Fanworks Post 2/27/11  

Weekend Fanworks participation has been so low since we announced the rules. C’mon people—don’t be shy!

Anyway, I’m kicking off this weekend’s post with a new addendum to the rule: you can make personal fanwork recs in the fanworks post too. I’ll start with a little drabble that may not have gotten much attention because it wasn't posted in archive communities but it was well-written and powerful:

Rated G. Angsty as HELL.

Link: The Reason Why

( skilly_n_duff  is known for her artwork but she writes too. The above drabble was written before canon events changed stuffs but I just love the shock value of the piece and how every word works).

Now an art. My favorite from the Valentine Day’s rush on DeviantArt: 14.2 by Yuria-chu Ah, I love watercolors.

Now, go ahead, rec away, add links to your own artwork and feel free to ask members for suggestions to particular types of works you’d like to see or for links to those arts/fics you can’t find anymore in comments/subthreads to this post.

Aw...shucks, Debbie. Now I'm all blushy and stuff.
Going to get a few posts from me out of the way--

2 more drabbles

FIC REC: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6360558/1/Time_in_Seconds

Time in Seconds by ncfan is one of the best Bleach fics I have EVER read. It's a collection of drabbles (and by collection, I mean over 200) that she updates at least three times a week. Pairings/ratings shift from chapter to chapter but they are all outstanding.

You are so awesomely multi-talented! *looks up to you in awe*

I'm also excited you shared such a great fanfic writer with us! I look forward to reading more of their work. =D

IchiIshi & SadoIshi recs
Thanks for the reminder, Deb. I've been meaning to rec these fics:

First, some feel-good Ichigo/Ishida stories, which I was so excited to see:

“Waiting” by kiyala here: http://community.livejournal.com/shannys_corner/98952.html

“Feverish” by sainnis here: http://community.livejournal.com/ishi_ichi/350111.html

“A Void” by parvati4th here: http://parvati4th.livejournal.com/40672.html

Also, I've been meaning to rec imlikat's "The Suit" for awhile now. It's a fantastic, long, 10-chapter Sado/Ishida fic where a relationship forms believably, which is sweet without being saccharine or too fluffy, and which has a wonderful build-up to an appropriately romantic ending. Tender, awkward, hot virgin!smex FTW!

If you read and enjoy these, please leave the authors some comment-love.

Re: IchiIshi & SadoIshi recs

oh thank you so much, Neha! I second the recs on the IchiIshi--and yesss, I have imlikat's chapter fic on my list--her SadoIshi and SadoIshiHime art is THE most sincere and warm/good feeling healthy yum smex around lately <3 I'm so in love w/it.

recs + pimping
Splinter - (by the wonderful GeoFount) An unlikely Orihime pairing with sides of Uryu/Orihime and Ichigo/Orihime, if I remember correctly. Mostly it's a really prettily done Orihime exploration. It's definitely dark/sad, but it also has a silver lining of hope.

And as for my own pimping:

Birthday A different take on the Ulquiorra-rebirth scenario. Expect melancholy angstiness with a happy(ish) ending. (Also, since people seem to wonder: the numbers are dates so you can put the days 'in order' if you'd like, since the story isn't chronological.)

If anyone has some recs for any well-done character-centric what-if? fic, then I will love you forever!

These were posted on my own graphics community about a week or so ago, but this is the only place I've yet to post them. So, here they are. This also happens to be my last icon set for a while.

» 82 Bleach (30 manga, 48 anime [episode 308/309], 4 icontest)
» 07 Other (.hack//LoT, FLAT, Narutaru)

I will set the mirror up to face the blackened sky

I was coming here to post a link to my fanfic, but I was beat to the punch! <3 *shoots arrows of love at nehalenia and debbiechan*

I wanted to rec a fanartist, but I can't find her work anywhere but on y!gallery, sadly. I think she used to have more on LJ. But if you do have a y!gallery account, paperteacup does some lovely Ganju/Hanatarou, and she has a great, unigue style :)

Also, I bet someone here can help me with this! I was thinking about the link between Ichigo and Ishida regarding their mothers, and losing them when they were young. I know that this has been approached in fanfiction before, but I don't really know where to start looking. Can anyone point me in the direction of some fic that deals with this topic? Thanks!
_debbiechan_: ICHI ISHI EXISTENCE by ediblewoodwinds_debbiechan_ on February 28th, 2011 12:37 am (UTC)

Haven't seen the subject of Ichigo and Ishida losing their mothers in a fic but I did drabble about the mutual "important persons" loss in "Rain Dragon"--the loss for Ishida being Souken in this case. Just a drabble though.
Now that you've given me the idea about the moms I'll put it on my to-do list.

I've only dealt w/the subject of Ishida's mother in another very A/U fic sans Ichigo.
♀*La Muerte Chiquita*♀la_kalaka on February 28th, 2011 02:30 am (UTC)
Talking about links, there is another one. ANd it's the link between Chad and Ishida, since the granfathers of both were the biggest influences in both of them.


Gonna check about that IshiIchi link :D for now the only thing I got its this fic which theorize about Ishida's mum :3

I forgot to do this in last week's fanworks post, so I'm going to hop on this one!

First, some utterly shameless self-promotion:

Ichiruki: Fairytale Ending
by ~luculentquark on deviantART
(for the IR FC Us That's Not Us contest)


Ichiruki: Drowning Seaward
by ~luculentquark on deviantART

and a fic rec! This fic's a little older, but it's one of my favorite Bleach fics of all time. The Roots of Heaven is by hallowd, and it is, without exaggeration, genius. It's a very long fic, about 152k words according to fanfiction.net, but it's completed, and believe me, it's worth every minute.
Kylarakarenai on March 1st, 2011 04:56 pm (UTC)
Oh, bring.on the self-promotion. I love both those pictures -- I'm a sucker for Rukia wearing gorgeous stuff in her hair, and eeeeeeeeeeeeee~

* Bleach Drabbles #438 by la_kalaka

* IshiHime_Drabbles by Woily
A good bunch of well written IshiHime drabbles. Interesting takes and a lot of unexplored moments for this pairing. A Gold mine for the IshiHime fanbase

* Memories at Night by mountainclimber.
IchigoTatsuki one shot. A well written piece, I can guarantee that :D

* Moments of Dysfunction by ncfan
Ryuuken and Uryuu Drabbles, family stuff, nothing weird :P Very well written, bittersweet and touching. Ryuuken's POV

I join the 'shameless self promotion is shameless' group to promote my fic XD at my livejournal page xD The fact is that I'm ashamed... *fidgets with her hair* XDDDD

I'm sorry I don't have anything to contribute *this week*
I-I just wanted to say that this new rule is an awesome idea :$
