Forty-four icons from DC Universe Presents Arsenal! Gorgeous, gorgeous art by Ricken, which I hope is the launch of a full-time comics gig, and great Roy story by Joe Keatinge.

(Icons contain spoilers for this issue. Also note: bondage, violence, blood. None of these icons are animated. All SFW. As always, feel free to use and edit any icons.)

Image previews and rec text contain the following: underage characters in kinky and sexual situations, non-consenting characters, and incest; no other standard kink_bingo notes (self-harm/suicide) apply, but note that the images are NSFW and also contain violence, including blood and death.

if you can do a rec set in a mathematically connected way -- say, with 6, 12, and 18 recs togethers -- are you obliged to do so?

View Answers

yes, of course. these things must be balanced! arbitrary and unrelated numbers of things are just sloppy posting.

no, despite the leading nature of your question there is still nothing morally superior about numerical patterns.

Hello, dear yuletide writer (and other people who may wish to read on)!

You have awesome taste in Yuletide offers, and therefore I think you're pretty awesome already. Salutations! (If you're not here to offer me Yuletide stories, well, hello anyway! I probably still like you.)

This year, I'm repeating a request from earlier years (Full Moon ni Sasayaite | Until the Full Moon) and making three new ones (Sweet Bro and Hella Jeff, Mirabile - Janet Kagan, and American Vampire).

Here are my requests! )
Here's more about me! )
cmshaw: Homestuck: Roxy sips a classy martini under the words "Your breasts are an ocean" (Your breasts are an ocean)
Hopefully to no one's surprise, Homestuck as an interactive fiction game à la Colossal Cave (or, perhaps more famously, Zork (1977)) is pretty much just Homestuck: Now With A Thin Pretense Of Free Will.

You can play "John: 8e a gentleman" online here:
http://iplayif.com/?story=http://sphinx.mythic-beasts.com/~cmshaw/john--8e-a-gentleman.zblorb

Or, if you already have (or want to acquire) a z-machine interpreter then you can download the game file in either format: zblorb or z8.

And yes, it's possible to play through this game and win it. :)

And yes, if I spend this long on the motherfucking sylladex code, you'd better believe I will be making more of these Homestuck i-f games!

Taking a Fall: Illustrated fic by Team Dirk <3 Equius
This is an amazing story about Equius being gently yet firmly led to the admission that he really wants to be submissive to Dirk. It's sweet and caring and everything that's perfect about Dirk being the best top Equius could ask for.

Untitled: Art by Team Terezi <3 Vriska
Seven reversible heart cards for Vriska and Terezi, in different styles. I am amazed by the Queen of Hearts -- a card of Terezi as thrown together by Vriska while pretending she doesn't care -- and the Six of Hearts -- a card of Terezi upright and reversed, before and after the Thief's justice.

Untitled: Fic by Team Equius <3 Eridan
In which Eridan is a clever dickhead and Equius is a bit stodgy, and they both love it. What I really love about this one is how much they've grown up while still being so very recognizable from their teenaged selves.

Denudation: Illustrated Fic by Team Karkat <3 Sollux
And this one has two teenaged boys being so, so stupid in order to impress each other. Karkat and Sollux are definitely acting their age here.

never kissed goodbye (the love of our lives): Fic by Team Dave <3 Rose <3 Terezi
This one had some impressively laid out worldbuilding for a short story! And some impressive characterization built up, especially in how the threesome is so clear from the interactions between only two of the three.

The Chance to Abscond: Fic/Art by Team Grand Highblood <3< Summoner
It's the human troll side of the legendary revolutionary who, it turns out, really is all that and more. This is a love story about the politics and the people both, and it reads like the sexy part of a really fantastic adventure novel.

Untitled: Art by Team Sollux <> Terezi
Incredibly detailed art of Sollux and Terezi all dolled up for a casino night. They look highly dapper and pleased with themselves, as they always should.

And some brief mentions:
* Know when to fold, boys. (Art/watercolor: Eridan <3 Feferi <3 Sollux <3< Eridan) -- Adorable!
* Says the Dragon to the Mama Cat (Comic: Nepeta <3 Terezi) -- Also adorable!
* Game of Gods (Fic/Art: Jade <3 Rose) -- Gods as kids, kids as gods
* And somewhere in the darkness the gambler, he broke even (Illustrated Fic: Rose <3 Roxy) -- Brilliant, even though it didn't sell me on the <3
* seize the fucking day (Fic/Art: Dave <3 Rose) -- Beautiful and tragic
* How to Cheat at Cards for Fun and Profit (Fic/Art: Aradia <> Sollux) -- Shenanigans on fantastic display
* Good cards. Best deck. (Art: Jade <3 Karkat) -- Another cool set of cards
* Blight of my Life (Illustrated Fic: John <3 Karkat) -- Cool AU in which John & Karkat are exactly themselves anyway
* Untitled (Art: Meenah <3 Roxy) -- Yeah, they totally would
* In which Vriska and John are secret agents and infiltrate a casino on a mission that is originally supposed to be a scouting one, but turns into much more and concludes with the two of them becoming moirails (Art/Fic: John <> Vriska) -- Delightful caper!
cmshaw: Homestuck: Karkat shooshes and paps Gamzee (righteous pap and blessed shoosh)
