Rating: PG13 for some slight sexing; nothing that wasn't in the show though

Story: The Last First Two Steps by jengrrrl
Vid Notes: I didn't choose the song by lyrics, so I can post them if you'd like, but it was mostly by mood instead. i didn't choose the song, the song chose me. Anyway, this vid is meant to stray from canon by using footage from the show, so watch with as clean a slate as possible. Song by Say Hi and is downloadable here.

Four and a half minute vid over at idiotk1d

I hope I did that right.

Artist Notes: I really enjoyed drawing for this story, which was an intriguing look at what the future might hold for the Merlin cast. Thank you for the fic, suaine! I hope I've managed to do it justice.

This is also quite a bit larger than I realized (things always look small on my home laptop screen, and I was pretty tired last night), so I may come back and resize it a little after work today.

Story Buffy the Jedi Knight: The Sith Seduction by seriousfic. It's totally kick ass, go read it!
Artist Notes:
The moment I saw the fandom for my assignment I grinned with anticipation, and it was indeed a lot of fun to draw (and read :)) My notes got absurdly long-winded so I posted them to my lj but I want to point out here that I flat out copied or photoshopped the layout and a lot of the background from other people's pictures (I feel a bit bad for any praise I got based on people thinking I painted all of it!).

Fic: An Unlike Fashioning (Arthurian Legend)

Title: An Unlike Fashioning
Author: havocthecat
Fandom: Arthurian Legend (Urban Fantasy AU)
Pairings: Morgan La Fay/Nimue (secondary Elaine of Astolat/Gawaine)
Characters: Meg Benjamin/Morgan La Fay, Kerry Fitzgerald/Nimue, Anna Benjamin/Elaine of Astolat, Cameron Sadaka/Gawaine, Accolon, Annowre
Rating: NC-17
Word Count:: 17,344
Warnings: None
Spoilers: Is it even possible to warn for spoilers on something that's based on a Medieval legend?
Betas: cleo2584, wiliqueen, and triciabyrne1978. Have I mentioned I love my betas? Have I mentioned they were beyond helpful with the commentary and the nitpicking, as well as the positive feedback?

Summary: When Nimue talked King Arthur into beheading the sorceress Annowre, she forgot to make certain that Annowre wouldn't recover. That will sometimes happen. She also didn't think to keep Annowre away from Accolon, the ghost of her girlfriend's former (and murdered by King Arthur) lover. It's a thousand or so years later, Nimue and Morgain have new names and new lives, but Avalon and Camelot are about to re-manifest in the mortal world.

Nobody better go on a grail quest this time around, or Meg is going to make sure they suffer.

Artwork: An Unlike Fashioning by ilthit. It's completely and utterly perfect, and you should all go and compliment her. A lot. *squees quietly*

Word count: 15,951
Betas: latentfunction, present_pathos; also feedback fromskieswideopen

Summary: After Shepherd Book, after Miranda, after Wash... it seems to Inara as though the universe owes something to the crew of Serenity, some chance at happiness, or at least not any more misery. The universe itself might even agree, but the universe is populated with human beings who know nothing of what's owing to Serenity, and human beings don't concern themselves with the balance of the universe's scales.
