Various Recs 
02:29pm 08/10/2007

Back in September, I claimed the Sandman fandom for hidden_treasure, which means you have to post at least three fic recs, twelve being the maximum, and up to four additional non-fic recs. I thought I could link them all in one post, so I won't spam your flist. Of course, Sandman fandom is relatively small, so I apologize if a) you already know all of these stories or b) you've seen the cross-post on IJ's the_dreaming.

The fic recs:

Small Fish, by Fay (gen - Dream, Death)

Shades, by Nyarth (slash - The Corinthian)

Dreams, Absent by qwerty (gen - Lucien)

And the extras: two fan arts, one essay, and one 3D fanart.

The general Sandman tag on hidden_treasure is http://asylums.insanejournal.com/hidden_treasure/tag/the+sandman . I'm also still using my del.icio.us account for Sandman-related bookmarks and did set up a WordPress reccing blog yesterday (does that make me obsessive? Won't somebody smack some sense into me? *shifty eyes*).

I hope you enjoy the read, and please leave a comment if one of the links doesn't work! :)

[Fanart] To Kiss Away Your Tears 
11:06pm 08/09/2007
  My first American Gods fanart, the ifrit and Salim. =)

(At one point Salim realizes that he is crying, and the ifrit is kissing away his tears with burning lips)

  Here's a Desire fic I wrote up, beta-ed by the wonderful yubsie, in which Desire deals with the death of the first Despair.

  One day, blizzardseason challenged me with a Five Things meme. I obliged. Needless to say, crack hilarity ensued.

Two ficlets, one Sandman and KH/RPF crossover featuring Neil. Gen, G-PG, enough said.

Five things Delirium sometimes likes about Desire.

Four chance meetings between Demyx and Neil Gaiman, and one that ends rather better than expected.

  Borne of a multifandom snippet challenge, mydarkrosaline asked for some mild Dream/Desire, with the prompt of "soft places". I complied:

Fic Post: Temptation 
12:36am 05/06/2007
mood: cold
Fandom: Murder Mysteries
Title: Temptation
Rating: PG13 for...sexless sex?
Characters: Carasel/Saraquael, Lucifer/Azazel
Summary: It's not the fall that kills you.
A/N: This is an experiment on putting two different threads of a story together, since I needed to practice that for the NNoD. It's set to Murder Mysteries because rapunzelita is tres fantastique and introduced me to a very nice reader's theatre version of the short story. Murder Mysteries itself has always been one of my favorite short stories. Much thanks as always to marilla82 for the beta, and to monochromed for impromptu 'wtf checking'.

( How strange. Carasel was the first to love, but Lucifer was the first to shed tears. )

  This time I'm just linking stuff. Awesome stuff made by others. Namely:

1. kindkit wrote a ficlet, "Liminal". It's about Hob Gadling and Death, and the mood's all poignant and sad-stubborn-hopeful like it should be.

2. bluephlox drew a fancomic, "kind of inspired by the Dream Hunters", and it's awfully pretty, soft lines and stark contrasts. It has Daniel!Dream in it.

  As promised, here is the layout using the tarot card design for Desire. It didn't come out entirely like I wanted, but I'm pretty happy with it nonetheless. There are still a few tweaks I might want to make though.  


06:25am 12/05/2007
  Hey, I was wondering if anyone has a scan or knows where I could get one of the rejected Desire tarot card design (at least I think it was made for the tarot cards). It was in one of the academic-type books on Sandman. Any help would be awesome, I am thinking of trying to make an LJ layout around that image if I can find it.

Dream Doll and a Wallpaper 
11:42pm 27/01/2007

I'm certain some of you have seen these already, but then again, many others possibly haven't, and I want to spread Teh Pretteh.

1. [an Endless wallpaper]. Very colourful and heavily stylized. Personally, I'm not so fond of Desire here -- it's a pet peeve of mine that ze's shown as female most of the time, even though Desire being also male/both/neither is the point of it all -- and Destruction's white-ish hair and sunglasses distract me every time. On the other hand, I really like Death, with the uber-fluffy hair, and Delirium; so it evens out.

2. [Neil links to the most beautiful Dream doll I've ever seen]. The eyes. The cheekbones. The collarbones. Also, want. Guh. *brain function will be resumed shortly*

"Sandman Papers" Link 
10:41am 19/01/2007

In case you haven't seen it - Hebdomeros has a nice review of "The Sandman Papers" here.

I agree with it, mostly -- but I also wish the book hadn't focused so heavily on Shakespear. I'm not a fan of "A Midsummer Night's Dream", even in the Sandman I never quite got why everyone went nuts about it. Not that it's a bad story, but others impressed me far more, and I think that four out of twelve essays is a bit much.

I'd have liked more visual stuff, too. I mean, the essay about Daniel!Dream's clothing style was a step in the right direction. But Heb's right; it's a very... academic, text-based collection.

On the other hand, we get stuff like a look at feminine power in The Kindly Ones or queer language in Foxglove's and Hazel's relationship. You can't say they didn't try to include a broad range of subjects.

Fan Art (Morpheus)

Weird. I always thought my fannishness for with the Sandman comics started back in 2005, but today I found an old sketch from 2004, apparently drawn with a black biro on the back of a school paper. (Must have been the time when I still had to borrow single trades from a friend.)

  That's not a typo. Thought I'd share some pictures of this project early. I'm still working on some details but I like what I've got so far. Introducing the Corinthian dollfie project, based on 2.0's design from Kiernan's "Souvenirs" arc.
