swiftsnowmane: (Vaderkin - Twilight of the Apprentice)

for @jedifest'16 Top Picks challenge



The s2 finale of Star Wars: Rebels was *the* Star Wars event of the year for me, the catalyst that sent me hurtling back into a fandom that I had distanced myself from for a long time. This episode single-handedly rekindled my love for Star Wars at a very dark time when I’d thought I had lost it forever.

Nothing can ever capture the tumult of emotion and the intensity of feeling I experienced while watching the now-iconic confrontation between Ahsoka Tano and Darth Vader. My heart exploded; my soul ascended. The moment Ahsoka slices open Vader’s mask is etched upon my memory forevermore: Vader, brought to his knees, and the voice of Anakin Skywalker, calling out the name of his beloved former apprentice.

Nothing can replicate it, and nothing can ever compare to it. But these five incredible fanworks sure come close.

for @jedifest‘16 Top 5 Picks


Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader is one of my favourite fictional characters of all time, and thus it's no surprise that attempting to choose only five pieces for this list proved a rather...difficult challenge. In the end, I decided to try a more liminal approach. While both of his dual identities are fascinating in their own right (Vader, his tormented prison; Anakin, his True Self, and the identity that we all long for him to reclaim), when it comes to artistic depictions, I find that this character is often at his most visually compelling when the two intertwine.

The following are five pieces that I feel capture the intermingling of and/or inner conflict between Anakin and Vader. (These are but a taste of the many beautiful works of art I’ve encountered this year; for more, see the tag on my blog here.)

In loving memory of Carrie Fisher (1956-2016)

a gift from the incredible @master–burglar, to soothe our hearts and lift our spirits.

Thank you so much, my dear friend.

I could keep you safe by bubug


The illustrious bubug (Magdalena) has done it again! Already I am honoured to have this exquisite piece by her as the cover art for my Bethyl fanfiction, Between the Fire and the Sky. But now, at long last, I present this stunning illustration of one of my most beloved pairings, Sansa Stark and Sandor Clegane from George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire. Faithful representations of these characters as described in the book series (as opposed to the tv show) are becoming more and more rare these days, and so I tasked bubug with capturing my headcanon for them as closely as possible. This is intended to be a depiction of them together in a possible future reunion scenario. For a more thorough explanation of the symbolism and meaning behind this piece, see my post here.

Last night, the talented artist ruebella-b surprised me on tumblr with the sweetest gift: a beautiful Bethyl fan art. Everything about it is just so lovely. The tender poses, the elegiac mood. I know it might not seem like a big deal, but I'm deeply touched. It's things like this that make my day and help me believe once more that "there's still good people." :')

Many thanks again to dear ruebella-b for this most thoughtful and generous gift!

If there’s nothing to be done
If there’s no part to be played
If there’s no song to be sung
Take this voice, take these hands
I can’t use them anyway
Take this music and the memory
Of the muse from which it came
- 'If It's True', Hadestown


....in which I finally write RPF.

They didn’t look back by bubug


Beyond ecstatic to present this stunning illustration of Beth Greene and Daryl Dixon, commissioned for the cover of my Bethyl fanfiction, Between the Fire and the Sky. I wrote this entire story with the bubug's illustration style in mind, so this is my wildest dream come true.

Someone pinch me. Bethyl LIVES! :')
