So we're all ready for the start of the Strike series this weekend are we?



Fabulous to have Tom Burke back on my screen, obviously. I saw the first ep at the BFI preview and it is excellent.

I read the books after finding out that Tom was going to be in it, so could picture him in the role while reading and he definitely did not disappoint in the actual ep. Interesting how, though Strike is described as much bigger than Tom, he somehow makes it work - he 'acts big' as the director said at the preview. Holliday Grainger also makes a fabulous Robin, exactly like I imagined her from the books.

Yay!

Why this piece is awesome: This is a series of garden-themed pictures that so far includes Pearl, Amethyst, Steven, Peridot, Lapis, and Connie. I love the concept, the colors, and the wealth of detail in each of these — Lapis's picture even has water dripping out of the bottoms of the pots. There's some great characterization (Amethyst's version of a "garden" made me laugh). My favorite is Peridot's, which makes wonderful use of light and captures Peridot's nervousness about being able to take proper care of all these tiny Earth life forms.

Show: SGA
Rec Category: 5 Things
Characters: Several hitherto unrecognised members of the expedition, Rodney McKay, John Sheppard, Jennifer Keller, et al.  
Categories: Gen
Warnings: Nil
Authors on DW: [personal profile] shaenie and [personal profile] fiercelydreamed
Authors' Website: See shaenie's DW, the AO3  for both (esp. for shaenie's works), and this is fiercelydreamed's site
Link: Five people who the press won't care about when the Stargate Program goes public (and the reasons why the Atlantis expedition wouldn't have made it without them) on AO3
Why This Must Be Read: This is the 3rd of three '5 Things' stories by fiercelydreamed and shaenie, and I'm reccing all of them, but this one has the links to stories I and II at the top. It's one of those lovely, inventive backstory fics, that tells us about the unsung heroes of Atlantis. 

You don't need to read them in order, but if you want to: Part I is called  Five Ancient Gadgets on Atlantis Rodney Would Absolutely Piss Himself with Glee if he Found (there's a small hint of McShep in this one), and Part II is called Five medical issues Jennifer Keller is really, really sick of treating - these contain what their titles say, and they're all great!

Why this piece is awesome: The notes under the art are great - Zyden imagines this as how Rocket would train up baby Groot - starting with a water pistol. I love the energy in the picture and their fierce expressions, even in play.

I had a wonderful day today. It was kinda weird with the eclipse and all, but everything came together in a spectacular way.

I am grateful for and love my days off.  I enjoy my days off, because they give me time to practice some "me" time. 

I am grateful for and love the fact that I am mediating again.  Especially as I am able to do it as part of my miracle morning, and before my brain engages fully with the day.

I am grateful for and love my kitten.  She's actually full grown now, but she's still my kitten.  I was meditating today during the peak of the eclipse, and she came in and sat with me with out nibbling on my ear phone cord. 

I am grateful for and love my home.   I love the windows open on cool nights.  I love the cats galloping up the hall.  I love that even on the first floor, I'm not on the ground.  I love the hardwood floors.  I love pretty much everything about my home.

I am grateful for and love the lessons I am learning, and the energy that is moving.   I planted some intents, and they are coming do. 

Who saw the eclipse?

Sam's already been host to a Tok'ra once. The second time should at least be a little easier. Of course, it's anything but.

Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: Bucky Barnes, Steve Rogers, Tony Stark
Content Notes/Warnings: none

Artist Website/Gallery: Denise's Original Art Blog
Why this piece is awesome: This is a Captain America/Star Wars: The Force Awakens crossover. The artist herself noted, "I kept thinking about Star Wars AU and had to add Bucky as a storm trooper, because guess who else broke their conditioning and escaped an evil organization?", which perfectly sums up why I think this piece works. I also love the casting of Steve as a Jedi, and Tony as a Resistance pilot.
Link: Bucky?! Who the hell's Bucky?
