Icons preview:

From these:

Set 3: SGA Xfiles Merlin Due South YST/RW Naruto
Set 2: H50 Dr. Who Inception Temeraire Glee XMFC
Set 1: H50 Dr. Who Leverage SGA SPN Highlander

Most icons are from the multifandom prints, with some re-posts from past chibi icon posts to make this something of a masterpost of fannish chibi icons. If an older icon isn't on here it's because I looked at it and winced (old art, ouch) or because it already has its own special post.

The icons! )

Yeah, so I had a pretty awesome dream about an Xmen First Class AU. Great drama with a lot of politics and tension as it became more and more clear that Erik Lensherr, the darling of the high command, would be playing favorites for Charles Xavier, new recruit.

In one "scene", another recruit watches Erik's body language change as he passes Charles in the crowd. Somehow this had BIG negative implications for Erik's political standing with the Big Boss, which had so far been on the rise. That's not even counting the other looming threat -- that Erik wasn't quite human; he was something sinister and dangerous, and some of the people in the program knew.

Then I woke up and realized that the revelation was that Erik was a vampire hamster.


Characters were reading reference books and encyclopedias with pictures and diagrams -- of vampire hamsters. All while Erik, in his true form, lurked outside the building trying to reach Charles, but he couldn't enter because the program was housed in the building of a Catholic school, which somehow made it holy ground. (Yes, the two things I've done in the past week were watch True Blood and read Methos fic. How could you tell?)

So, epic drama, except. Vampire Hamster.

Pen: But Charles thinks he fits nicely in the curve between your neck and shoulder.
Pen: He's quite nice really. got even better when I realized that despite all the language about vampire hamsters, the photos in the encyclopedias were clearly of guinea pigs. I'm going to blame that on that Power Rangers fic I read four years ago (it had ninjas!). So.

So, here is some really sappy Charles/Erik. In my defense, I feel it is still less over the top than the movie, though maybe with more touching (at least in the absence of life-altering injuries).

5/6 line art pieces finished! Previous previews of line art: (note that these are unfinished; they will be revised a bit and colored) temeraire + laurence, arthur/eames, amy/rory, and kurt/blaine, in which Blaine's hair is an dragon, true facts.

Raven and Charles, T-minus 2 days to doctoral defense. [personal profile] ileliberte wanted blue!Raven and Charles as cuddling siblings. I'm a sucker for characters having relationships outside of their OTP, so that was a foregone conclusion, especially if it plays to my artistic strengths: cute and kinda dumb.

I have a bunch of prompts from the last few posts, but you're welcome to keep leaving more as I am really impulsive. :)

Three more things:
1. Charles Xavier and Erik Lensherr, again

A companion to the one with the elephant. In my defense, the logic behind this picture is a lot more obvious.

Also, totally unrelated, Dominic Cobbs crew definitely needs to try to incept Charles Xavier. Or they need to pull jobs on other people and spend months trying to figure out which of them this Xavier projection belongs to. I'm just saying.

3. (Unless you want me to keep drawing Charles and Erik and large mammals), would you give me some other prompts that I might draw without added exotic creatures, please? :D

Three things:
1. Charles Xavier and Erik Lensherr

Um, I was wondering if Charles could affect animals, since in a pseudo-scientific universe, rather than a magicky one, whatever signal he's giving off should hit other brains as well, but somehow this lead to Charles hugging an elephant. There was going to be Erik trying to metal bend an Indian Rhino, so you're lucky you got this one instead.

Charles and Erik kind of remind me of Duncan and Methos, in that they initially mistake each other for kindred spirits, but the longer they know each other, the more fundamental their differences become. Despite this, the chemistry between their characters is so strong as to be gravitational. You don't even need physical attraction in the mix to explain it. And lo, roughly ninety bajillion fics are written.

Hilariously, to me, Charles is definitely Methos in this scenario. Neither of them are really that similar to either Duncan or Methos, but when it comes to their relationship dynamic, it's Charles who is endlessly interested in things and people and who's less likely to call any crime totally unforgivable.

Saw Xmen, loved it, and the radio is playing a song whose repeating lyric is "I want to reconcile the violence in your heart." Oh, Erik.

Now I keep clicking on fics whose entire plot is that telepathy gives Charles a headache and that makes Erik sad. That is my life at this moment.
