Panta rhei

 I have mostly migrated to Tumblr, on account of how easy it is to post images there. I can be found under keire-ke. All of my fanfiction can be accessed on my AO3 account (I'm ashamed to admit I stopped posting fics here, and I have written some since the last post).

[ART] Epoch! [masterpost]

Title: Epoch!
Artist: keire_ke
Author: Pangea
X-Men Verse: XMFC AU
Characters/Pairings: Charles/Erik, Logan, Wade
Rating: genish (worksafe)
Warnings/Spoilers: liberties were taken with the dinosaur anatomy. Palaeontologists proceed with caution.

Summary: When Erik Lehnsherr decides to answer the sketchy job ad on the very last page of the Classifieds, meeting an insane billionaire who has no concept of reality and troubling memory loss is not at all what he expects. He also doesn't expect to meet Charles Xavier, who might actually be the love of his life if he could ever get around to admitting it to himself.

He also doesn't expect dinosaurs, but then again, who really does these days?

Onward to the fic!
Art also available on Tumblr.

Dinosaurs. Guys. Dinosaurs. :D

[ART] Virtues and Vices MASTERPOST

Title: Virtues and Vices
Artist: keire_ke
Author: amethystrose001
X-Men Verse: XMFC AU
Characters/Pairings: Charles/Erik, Moira
Rating: gen
Warnings/Spoilers: none

Summary: They say love knows no bounds. Soulmates are meant to be... Do all these legends also apply to immortal creatures, bred to fight against each other? What happens when lovers are bound with duties and honor? 

The leader of the Elite Seven, the highest ranking Archangel, Charles, senses a powerful Gifted on Earth, and immediately sets down to recruit her to Heaven before 'they' get a hold of her. But what happens when this seemingly simple mission brings him face to face with his old-friend-turned-nemesis, Erik, the Fallen angel, the Prince of Hell?

In which, every body is hell-bent (literally) on reuniting the unrequited lovers, the pretty little girl is not what she seems to be, and with an unsuspecting human is where it all began.


Thank you for this, hun, it was superfun working on the cutesy angel bits. :D 

Onward to the fic!

Star Trek

[[um. Hi! I'm not dead. Not even a little bit! I'm mostly on Tumblr these days, and AO3]]

Aside from some odd bouts of "dude, gravity does not work like that," "...this is a spaceship, build to withstand pressure from the INSIDE, not OUTSIDE," "guys, in space if you can see the nearest flying object you are, oh, 5,000 klicks too close" and last but not least "levelling large inhabited areas gets old pretty fast" I really liked this movie. I thought it made more sense than the first one, and was altogether awesome. :D Benedict Cumberbatch was fantastic, I could listen to him for hours. Especially with the evil plots and such.

That being said, can we talk about how Jim Kirk shouldn't be in charge of a vessel bigger than a dinghy, and even then only when a more competent person is indisposed?
Spoilers ahoy. )

The Host movie.

Stephenie Meyer is, I think, very talented when it comes to burying her admittedly excellent ideas in sub-par prose and non-existent plot. I say this, because she frequently takes the trouble to present an alternative take on the same events which end up being more exciting and evoke more genuine emotion than the entire story. Case in point the ending of Twilight, where the antagonist reminisces about this other vampire who was in love with a human girl and, when the antagonist became too much of a threat, turned her to keep her safe (newborn vampires being stronger than older ones). All of this took place in a psychiatric hospital, where she was treated for having premonitions. The Host has much the same problem: after an hour and a half of the heroine being helpful and more human than humans and special, we get to find out that the reason the antagonist is so devout to chasing her that she starts evolving past what her species determines she should be, is that her own host is still there, still fighting, and she wants to know how to defeat her. In about five minutes of screen time there is more drama than the protagonist(s) had in the entire movie.

I'm not going to get into the whole romance, because bleh, and the movie is very painful to watch, on account of extremely horrible dialogue. Think of any scene between Anakin and Padme in Star Wars, and then multiply it by, oh, seventeen. There is also the lazy ending and drawn-out everything, but even that could be made bearable if the dialogue wasn't written for people who were going to read the script, not see the movie.

Lastly, the movie deserves an award: they managed to find pants which don't flatter Diana Krueger.

I wonder if I can make a fusion of it. :D

[fic] The Pleasantness of Employment

Title: The Pleasantness of Employment
Author: [personal profile] keire_ke 
Artist: Rohnoc
Disclaimer: Written for entertainment, the only profit is priceless fun.
Word Count: 32k
Characters/Pairings: Erik Lehnsherr/Charles Xavier, past Erik/Magda, with Emma Frost
Warnings: Erik's potty mouth
Rating: Teen
Summary: Modern AU. It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single man in possession of two lively toddlers must be in want of a babysitter. This truth is so fixed in Erik's mind that when his children mysteriously turn up fed and entertained, he doesn't question where the care comes from, so long as it is continuous, or at least he doesn't question it until the caretaker turns out to be his handsome neighbour. Sadly, his attempts at romancing said neighbour are undermined by—no, never mind, it's easier to list things that don't undermine his romancing attempts, and those are the weather and meteor showers.
Author’s Notes: Thank you so much, Roh! :D

Writing: not even once.

You know the feeling when you get a cute, funny idea for a short story which just flows, and you type it all up and finish, copy and paste into a relevant box, hit send, and watch the kudos roll in, while you cheerfully move on and start to work on all your other project and exams?

Yeah, me neither. It began with this post right here. If you frequent XMFC-related Tumblrs you've probably seen it fifty-seven times. So I had the cute idea, I typed it up in its 1.2k glory, pasted it into Tumblr reblog box, hit send, then continued typing for no apparent reason. I'm now sitting on over 6k of a depressing Beauty and the Beast retelling in which almost everything that can go wrong goes wrong, but Erik is a sad, ineffectual stalker whose addiction everyone indulges out of fondness, and its innate hilarity.

It's also threatening to become an 18th century procedural, in which the murderer stalks the halls while the heroes attempt to escape with their lives, except the more I think about it the more sympathy I have for the murderer and his tragedy, and gaaargh, why is writing so hard?

[fic] Rayleigh Scattering (I hate you, give me my robot back)

Title: Rayleigh Scattering (I hate you, give me my robot back)
Rating: gen
Genre: science-fiction, crack undertones
Characters: Erik, Charles, David 7
Wordcount: 1.7 k
Warnings: none
Summary: Erik built robots, and he made the mistake of basing their physicality on himself, so it's natural that sooner or later he would come across one doing something so degrading he wouldn't be able to stand it. He was ready for that, he thought, but the things Xavier made David do boiled his blood.

Author’s Note: Possible prequel to this bit of Prometheus-related crack.

Erik Lensherr’s opinion of himself was high, and why shouldn’t it be? )

A very productive weekend

Because the 1st of November is All Hallows and we have that day free, and the next moron who tries to raise the "Help, I'm Catholic and oppressed" card they are getting bitchslapped. Among the things we did was: Skyfall and Hamlet, the latter featuring plenty of our soaps' stars. A production made all the more hilarious because my reaction to the casting of Hamlet (before I learned who it was) was "please don't let it be this guy" and of course it was. He turned out to be great, and my dislike of him is fairly irrational (he's just everywhere these days). The other reason the production was hilarious was that Claudius was vulnerable and bimboistic, while Gertrude was cut-throat and unapologetic, so the whole thing could be greatly improved by the cast being swapped there. Polonius rocked and the ambiguously gay duo, AKA Rosencratz and Guildenstern were fabulous.

Now, regarding Skyfall: I thought the issue is simple: if you're a Bond fan, you might not enjoy it a whole lot. If, however, you are meh about Bond, you will think, as I did, it was the best Bond ever. Very beautiful in terms of scenery, adorable in terms of Q (Q-tie, you can see what they did there!) and Bond flirting back at Javier Bardem - priceless. Spoilers to follow. )
I genuinely enjoyed the movie, as I rarely enjoyed Bond movies. And now I must go to find the adaptation of Tempest in which Helen Mirren is Prospero.

Also, on the productivity front, we cleaned the apartment. It is superclean!

Rolling on!

My god, Tumblr is a horrible, horrible place! *claws weakly*

Various arts, in order, something fiery, something funny, something in which Erik is a Disney Princess )

So I started watching Teen Wolf, I'm up to episode eight, and I have do ask: does Allison develop a personality? Anything? Ever? Because thus far she exists and that's the most you can say about her. You could replace her with a blowup doll and the emotional impact would be about the same. Everybody else is reasonably well-rounded! That, quite literally, everyone. The teachers. The vet. That guy we see for thirty seconds before he gets horribly murdered. The girlfriend though, she has the emotional range of a dying lobster. Sigh. It's even worse than Bella Swann in Twilight, she at least was a horrible person, topped the list of people I would never want to hang out with, ever, never contributed an opinion that wasn't "he was bee-ay-yuutiful" and she still has more personality. Can't they cut Allison's screen time and give it to Stiles instead? Or anybody, really - give it to Lydia, I like Lydia.

Don't let me get started on the "romance" part. It's laughable.

Finally, Stiles needs better friends, as he is awesome and Scott is a complete asshole.

Gravity Falls is very enjoyable. :)

[click for bigger version on Tumblr - I hope it works, Photobucket hates me today]

At this point I don't think I can even pretend I'm kidding.

Praise be to this wonderful fandom, where no AU is too weird. XD (This is the Moomins, in case someone was wondering.)

In the long tradition of blaming people for my insanity, this one goes to [personal profile] katikat. :D

The things you learn

It turned out lately that my eyes aren't brown, like I thought all my life and jotted down in my papers when necessary. They are hazel, if that's what half murky green/half reddish brown is. Shocking! o.O

At first I doodled Moomins... )

Also available on my Tumblr.

I've seen a few movies this summer. In brief:

Prometheus was enabled by the protagonist deciding that having a PhD means they don't need their brains anymore. I paid for it twice and I don't regret a dime of that money though. Fassy snarked his way through and Noomi Rapace set a new standard in badassery. :D

Brave I'm ambivalent about. Loved the visuals, enjoyed the story, loved Queen Elinor, hated the dubbing, overall need to watch again.

Bourne Legacy I enjoyed in the cinema, then promptly forgot what was it about. It's repetitive, once you've seen the first three. As an added bonus, early on there is a clip which sister lovingly dubbed as "Watch Us Kill All Potential Characters Of Ethnic Origins."

I have also watched ~10 episodes of the Polish version of Don Mateo (in short, Catholic priest is bored, solves crimes, thereby frustrating police chief) and it's ridiculous to an insane degree, swathed in pink sugar frosting, but you can't stop watching.

Finally, cyclists should be financially responsible for the accidents they participate in if they were wearing headphones on the road. No exceptions.

[art] Petting Time

rating: worksafe

Petting your supervillain )

Omigosh, I actually did a decent background! o.O (reference was used, I’m nowhere near that good). In retrospect shading light surfaces is hard and Charles, amazingly, gets by on one wheel only. Good for you, Charles!

In my head this is the AU in which Erik is a firefighter and Charles is a university professor, who is out to teach his students that fire is dangerous. Together they have epic adventures in trolling!

Erik likes to sit on the floor, because that way his head is in petting reach of Charles and Erik loves having his head petted. :D

Also available on Tumblr, which I now have. Why is there an E missing from that name?

Cone of shame.

Momentous news: I got myself a Tumblr. *hangs head* I'm ashamed. It is very nifty for posting pictures and series of pictures (and potentially sharing them, too) though. Tumblr available here: Glory to the Ponystate!.

I don't blog or spam much, so expect the occasional art update only. :>

I finished Snuff. It was... okay. I miss the times when Vetinari was a smug bastard and Vimes was floundering for answers like a fish in a barrel full of other fish looking for a chicken. I think it tried too hard, though it was worth just to get to the end and have Sybil mention that a dwarf and a troll have apparently shacked up together. :D

Ha, so I had three hours off today and I went to see Prometheus (side note: weirdly enough, Chrome spellcheck includes Promethean, but not Prometheus) and hell, I loved it! It's absolutely lovely to watch (and I don't mean just Michael Fassbender, though he contributes a lot to the pretty), the script is simple, straightforward and doesn't fall into the dreadful "Supporting character #3, state your hobbies and familial relations, for the audience to gauge your chances of survival". Ugh, I hate that trope. Sure, the crew of the ship is apparently 17 in numbers (captions tell you so), and I can remember maybe six of those people, and even the I don't remember the names of the pilot and that other guy. It felt really nice and human, no show whatsoever. I know people complain that it doesn't really explain anything, but does it have to?

Here, let me spoil you: )

Bonus spoilers that I only now remembered. )

Can't remember anything else - suffice to say that a) forget you ever heard it's an Alien prequel, it's a totally different thing, with a few nods b) it's awesome. :D

Oh, and I got my diploma in biophysics. Well, passed the exam, for which I got a 5.0 (4.5 overall) on a scale of 2-5. WOOHOOO!
