lost_spook: (Northanger reading)
I'm back! I'm very tired, so comments and posts will wait/be erratic until I'm not. In the meantime, I'm trying to get some Yuletide recs up before Reveal. I carefully bookmarked on AO3 as I read while away, so hopefully this should be a quiet, simple thing to do?

It's a fairly random first pass of the archive. I tend to read shorter fics, and also have a terrible habit (faced with the chocolate box that is Yuletide) of reading only one or two fics out of a fandom with several in it before skipping to the next shiny thing, but still, an overview of some things I've particularly enjoyed so far, in the hopes that others might enjoy them too:

19 Recs in Archer's Goon, The Avengers, Chalet School, Georgette Heyer (Devil's Cub, False Colours, Frederica), Dracula, Fionavar Tapestry, Forsyte Saga, The Highwayman, Honeysuckle Cottage, I Capture the Castle, Ngaio Marsh, Indiana Jones, Jane Eyre, Jane the Virgin, Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell, and Maid Marian )

More to come later today! (Hopefully! But definitely including my shiny Madness Treat when it does. \o/)

(I still have space for more topics if anyone hasn't left me one yet! The original post is here should you wish to.)

[profile] ramasi requested: Book-to-movie (or tv) adaptations you like? (Or didn't like, if you feel like ranting).

My first thought was that this was a very nice question, the second that this could be a very long post if I'm not careful. So I made myself choose 5 favourites, setting myself a rough guideline for inclusion - something along the lines of "it needs to be something I've watched at least twice and should be where I read the book first". (And then promptly broke that rule with my first choice, as you do.) (The pics in this post, btw, are my screencaps, excepting those for the first two, which I stole from Google.)

Excuse the spammage tonight, but I have decided that over the next few days, I will post all the uploaded but unposted icons I have. Some of them are now very old (but obviously I deleted anything I really didn't like). I kept thinking I would do more of each, but even if I do, they'll look different now, and it's getting silly.

This post contains all the non-text, non-DW ones. The text and DW will follow in due course.

Allo Allo [1 - 11]
Carry On Films [12 - 92]
I Capture the Castle, Inkheart, Inspector Alleyn [93 - 121]
Julia Sawalha - WDYTYA [122 - 132]

My NaArMaMo progress:

As you might have noticed from some previous posts, any gaps are where I did non-icon entries (and also my Big Finish icons, which I am saving for a proper post), and that's why it's a two-week update. Anyway, in these two weeks, I learnt how to use my scanner a bit more, made two texture sets and found out what some of the brushes on my image program actually do. (Yes, they can add sparkles!) Plus, I have admired some far more impressive art at [livejournal.com profile] naarmamo daily.

Icons and sparkles )

I had these hiding on my hard drive. I had intended to do some more, now that I can do less fuzzy icons, but never got round to it.
