H/G Book 7 kiss

*pokes icon*

Hey all! So it stands to reason that as soon as I discover a "solution" for my internet woes, something has to squelch my excitement. The day after I discovered the Caribou Coffee, I started DTS training, thereby cutting my lunch hours just enough so I can't get there and back in time to have any internet time. *headdesk* The good news is that I should be all done with training by the middle of the week next week, so let's see if I can't get back some of that time lost. In the meantime, I figured no one would mind if I disable comments for this post seeing as a) I'm pimping fandom stuff relatively unrelated to this post and b) I'll have a head start in replying back to everyone from my last post. :)

And now, Teh Pimpage!

I'll keep this first one pretty simple and straightforward. Not just because I'm a host, not just because I'm organizing the next Artist's Corner segment, and not just because we're always getting down with our bad selves like Baryshnikov on speed, but you NEED to download Episode 22 of SpellCast (faspellcast). Okay, so maybe that's a strong word, but really, it's the first time all 5 of us are on at once, Joe has created perhaps the most amusing blooper reel at the end we've had yet, and because... well...

*cough* So yeah. At some point I'll have to take a moment to write about how absolutely shocked, stunned, and excited I am about that little bit of news. Have a listen, and do leave us your feedback - it makes us squee with delight, and it makes sure you have a fun show to listen to! :)

Next, some art news from the friendly folks at Prophecy! I totally love this idea... (Thank you, enelya_oronar):

And lastly, because it's been a very long and tough week, I want to pimp out and thank the following people for sharing the gift of their creativity and brightening my day:

* hp5freak wrote this amazing fic to go with my last art pic and positively made my week: "The Sneaky Boy"
* thekams wrote a drabble to accompany my last Harry/Draco commish, and it's totally brilliant: Read it here.

That said... have a wonderful week everyone. :) Especially nutnatz, xhannaxbethx, and gmth - Happy Birthday! :D

Commission for honeybean

Guys, I'm actually wicked nervous about this commish - it's my first Tom Riddle, and I drew it for the queen of Tom Riddle art (IMO), honeybean. She's a huge Tom fan, and draws him beautifully, and she came up with the idea for me to draw Tom's confrontation with his father, Tom Riddle, Sr. More interesting to me was her additional prompt that Tom, Jr. should not only look like his evil self, but maintain a vestige of the human being he once was - to look at his father in such a way as to connote not just hate, but the bitterness of abandonment. I LOVED this idea.

It was a tough order, but I did my best. :)

Title: My Filthy Muggle Father
Medium: Ink
Rating: PG because Voldemort's dad is about to be snuffed.
Characters: Tom Riddles Jr. and Sr.
Summary: "...[H]e murdered the Muggle man who had abandoned his witch mother, and, for good measure, his Muggle grandparents, thus obliterating the last of the unworthy Riddle line and revenging himself upon the father who never wanted him." - Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Chapter 17: A Sluggish Memory
Artist's Note: This is the breaking point for Tom, Jr. I think, so I tried to make him as monstrous as I could without losing the handsome features that were his trademark. I hope it worked. :)
