My brother really loves Sailor Moon, so he wanted to go as tuxedo mask at a con we recently went to. I tried to do a serious photoshoot with him, but he wouldn’t really stay still :/ He was a hit with the ladies though. 

goodbye friends I am dead

Say my name challenge redux, Sam Wilson edition

Hi Falcon fans! Just a friendly reminder that there are hundreds of Sams on AO3, so if you tag for just “Sam" in the freeforms (as in "Sam Angst"), your tag will probably disappear into the void and your wrangling team won’t notice. If you use "Sam Wilson" in your tag, you’re much more likely to get a canonical and to be able to filter by that tag in the future.

We’ve mentioned this issue with other characters in the past (such as Steve, Tony, Jane, Maria, and Bruce); this goes for most characters with common first names.

Also, a challenge! How fast can 3 people post works that tag for “Sam Wilson as Captain America”? :D

Stucky Book Club links?

Hi Steve/Bucky fans! If anyone has links to the original organizing post(s) for this challenge, could you drop them my way? Your wrangling team has been digging for days and found nothing we could take to the canonical bank. Google and Tumblr are not friends. :(

All help appreciated!

Look y’all, I’m not in Teen Wolf fandom anymore, I cop to that. BUT THIS is a total shit show. 

Fandom belongs to FANS and should not EVER be on a website that the powers that be create for their own purposes or in the control of a corporate sponsor (.mtv is not cute). Placing work on the website, ADMITTING to the desire to move fandom into an area where they have more control and removing the interaction fans have with each other to a space in which 1. you don’t hold the rights to your work and standards are set not by the community but the powers that be and 2. you’re removed from the traditions of fanspace is totally gross and inappropriate on their part. They aren’t the first ones to try this bullshit either, they’re just cloaking it in different words.

Please don’t fall for this and if you DO and are curious about it please carefully read the TOS for the site you are signing up for and learn about how they can and will use your content for profit in the future. Protect yourself, protect your community. Ultimately, it’s your choice but it should always be YOUR choice and YOUR experience and YOUR fandom. Bringing it out of the realm of fans, where you didn’t create the website, you didn’t make the rules, you can’t do whatever the fuck you want, is not okay. It’s not what fandom is about. Teen Wolf PTB aren’t PART of fandom. You are.

I was meant to be knitting or working on my Big Bang art but instead I accidentally drew Bucky, Peggy and little Steve. Not sure how or why but I liked the idea and the art worked and not much has been working of late.
I can see all sorts of problems with it now but I have many other thing to do so this will have to do.
Steve, Bucky and Peggy. Line art done in Paint Tool SAI and colouring done in Photoshop CS2 with my touch screen pen. I really miss my Wacom.
I was intending to draw pre serum Steve/Bucky porn. Hopefully that will be my next art.

Anonymous said: Is there a way to filter for Locked works while logged in? I like using the feeds but this means I will miss out on locked works unless I'm on the archive, correct?

ao3org:

Correct! To see what you might have missed, visit the fandom tag in question and put the following in the “Search within results” field:

          restricted:true

Many more search codes can be found in our tutorial, The “Search Within Results” Field and You, Pt. 1.
