So let me first start off by wishing a very, very happy birthday to madeof_stars, zorb, ehnel, themadams_lair, and the_ladys_opal. I know I'm not around as much, but just know that you're all extraordinary and special people, and I feel so lucky fandom brought us in contact! (C, you've got something coming in the mail, btw.)
Next, teh pimpage.
I don't do this nearly enough (although I think my flist might disagree), but there's some awesomeness happening over at SpellCast (or faspellcast, for us LJ types) and I have to pimp the show. We just found out that we're in the Top 5 Fandom Podcasts on iTunes, we have a really, REALLY huge announcement coming soon regarding the Los Angeles premier coming up, and though I've only been an official full-on host for a small amount of time compared to Sid, Zorb, Robert, and Josh, I can't tell you guys how hard we all work, especially our industrious editors, to put on a good show. We made lots of positive connections at Phoenix Rising, and I hope you'll join in and listen to us. The Podcast Play we put on with SpinnersCast in New Orleans was INCREDIBLE, with voice talents that literally shocked the socks off of me when we auditioned them.

And finally some art:
For the "Blades of Glory" enthusiast (okay, so I actually drew it for hill_, who *might* just love BoG more than I do!), I give you the Jimmy MacElroy Trading Card. I hosted it over on blades_of_glory because not everyone is slave to the glory that is "Blades" like I am. ;) So just click on the icon to see it. It's rated G.
And this one I'm almost tempted to ask someone to write a drabble for. When k8nkane asked for a Harry/Draco commish, I was a little apprehensive because, well, I generally don't think there's all that much to redeem about Draco's character. But hey, I'm up for a challenge, and this turned out to be one of my favorite commishes.
Title: "Three's a Crowd"
Rating: PG for H/D-ness
Characters: Harry, Draco, and Smokey the Cat (k8nkane's pet)
Medium: Colored Pencil/Ink
Summary: When Ty asked for her cat to be in the picture, this scenario was the first thing that came to mind. Harry obviously hit the hay first, stealin' all the pillows, and Smokey got comfortable... before Malfoy could get the chance to get comfy himself. ;) Probably not realistic or canonical, but it totally makes me smile.
Thanks, as always, for lookin'.
