ae_match roundup

So, ae_match is over!

I am SUPER IMPRESSED by the hustle from both teams yesterday! At first I thought for sure Team Romance would come out on top because of their incredible lead in the first week, then Team Angst had a slow but sure comeback in the later weeks, and THEN Angst exploded all over the place yesterday and I thought for sure we were going to cinch it, and then Romance answered right back with a hustle of their own, and it was just fab. I honestly couldn't tell you who's my pick to win it, but all along I have been saying, without irony, that we're all winners from the upswing in amazing fanworks.

My hands-down favorite you-must-read-this rec from the fest is Quito, by [livejournal.com profile] starbolin, because not only is it scorching hot and leaves me breathless, but it does it in that particular way that [livejournal.com profile] starbolin does every time that makes me wonder if they were secretly sent here on a mission to fulfill my happiness.

My favorite submission for the other team (you filthy curs!) is Things Arthur Finds Fun by [livejournal.com profile] adelaide_rain. Every time I read it, my face splits into this goofy smile that will not go down for hours, it is like like the blue pill for smiles and I have facial priapism. The premise is kind of silly (Arthur likes roleplaying trashy romance-novel style), but it is done so sweetly and so self-aware of its silliness that it just works.

Art by me is over here: Murder Your Darlings and If We Turned Our Reactors to the Sun (pt. ii), and also these icons, because I love you, Team All The Crys.

I like everyone so much that I made you a macro:

And I know I said it in the party post, but I think we all owe a great thanks to [livejournal.com profile] foxxcub for organizing it, and to team leaders [livejournal.com profile] gelbwax, [livejournal.com profile] sparrow_hubris, and [livejournal.com profile] duckgirlie for their tireless work in keeping us organized; I know over on Team Angst things ran really swell, and the match as a whole was really well-managed and just a good idea all around. Cheers!

Behind the cut is art for Team Angst and [livejournal.com profile] ae_match! I was so, so lucky to have not one, but three talented authors sign on to write for my art, [livejournal.com profile] khasael, [livejournal.com profile] eternalsojourn, and [livejournal.com profile] hazelwine. You can read their fics on [livejournal.com profile] ae_match over here.

Image is whoooooahahohoho not safe for work. Also, not safe for people who can't handle blood. Or purported OTP stabbing. And insinuated character death. You know. There wasn't enough violence in my last picture, so, I'm making up for it.




i want to do terrible things to you )
