ive got a handful of MR art requests on tumblr now, which im slowly working through on weekends. two more from this sunday:

[personal profile] toujours_nigel submitted alec + ralph, and ever since The Thousandth Man i havent been able to get the image of ralph in navy whites out of my head:


[personal profile] prancy called in for bunny & ralph, and there's even a fic to match!!! im in rapture:




anyway, feel free to request something here on dreamwidth as well! (so far ive got plenty of R/L wedding night asks, so rest assured that base is covered) 

maybe i should make it a twelve days of christmas or something? (or twelve days of ketchup, going by my latest requests...)

someone on tumblr requested the hair-stroking scene between R and L. course i had to oblige :)

ive been mostly messing around on twitter and tumblr these days, which has resulted in me being recruited for an attack on titan fanzine.

the final illustration is under wraps until the zine comes out, but i was so pleased with how the sketches came out that i had to post them somewhere. it's not renault-related at all, but a 15th century plate armour AU for some anime characters is probably...........tangentially....relevant...........!

(also, will someone let me know if i got his rank right? dont have my copy of TC to check, so had to improvise on the sleeves)

im always impressed by the sheer diversity of renault's Bad Mothers when it sounds like she only had one of them herself, but im even more impressed & endeared by hilary's staunch refusal to examine her own emotions. anyway, im only taking a breather to bang out some thoughts

just started on return to night and like, how does mary renault so accurately describe the frustrations of being in an oppressed group while semi-absolving/glossing over the actual source of oppression? im gonna kick david's ass

My friends and I are all hobby MBTI enthusiasts, and I recently talked one of them into reading TC. I told him that I'm fairly certain Laurie is an INFP, while he (on the strength of chapter 2 alone, mind)  maintains that Laurie is an INTJ. These are our *own* respective types. 

Here and there, I've also encountered fandom discussions of TC where I wonder if I've read the same book as the poster, our takeaways were so different. And of course there are the stories of people coming out in letters they wrote to Mary Renault.
