    I... am suddenly not sure if I'll be able to do my crazypants deal this year or not. I had fully planned to and then I got the death plague for a week and I was just too exhausted to do anything and I'm still freaking sick and... well, bleah, mostly. So, we'll see.

HOWEVER. Because of ashleigh_lin recommending the series, I gave Nabari no Ou a shot after I'd been eyeing it for ages and OMFG. I inhaled that series while I was sick. And now? GIMME FIC AND ART GIMME FIC AND ART GIMME FIC AND ART OMFG GIMME FIC AND ART. *___*

Final Fantasy XII: Too Drunk to Fuck by threewalls - This was a nice little piece that captured an interesting dynamic between Balthier and Fran. Generally, I'm not that fond of drunkfic, but this one works nicely well, showing how they're partners in even this, even when Balthier is too far out of it to get anywhere. It's short, but a nice little read this morning. (Balthier/Fran.)

NCIS: Protection by The Hoyden - So, Tammaiya pointed out that Hoyden had written Gibbs/DiNozzo fic this morning and, wow, did I totally rush right over to read it. It's wonderfully characterized, the author's Tony is so fantastic, he's got that energetic and upbeat personality without being hyper about it, his inner dialogue is really easy to hear Michael Weatherly's voice with and it's sharp, clever, and funny. I adore her Gibbs as well, he's exactly what he should be--he's a hardcore badass, yet you can't help liking him. And, really, the best thing about this fic--aside from the team discussing whether or not Gibbs wears a cup to work every day or not--is that the writing made me satisfied with this fandom again. ♥ (Gibbs/DiNozzo.)

- Gintama - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I was actually looking for Nabari no Ou fanart when I stumbled over this site and started randomly clicking through the gallery. There was this really beautiful illustration of Kagura and Sadaharu against a nature background that had the prettiest colors and I was just. Totally sold on the site. The rest of the site is very cute as well, I'm not really big on the pairing, but I like both Okita and Kagura as characters and the artist does amazing detail on their hair and clothes and the backgrounds that I couldn't not recommend it. Seriously, there's one of little baby Kagura near a forest while in a cute little rainslicker that's the most adorable thing I've seen all day omg. ♥ (Some Okita/Kagura.)

- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I was looking for more Nabari no Ou fanart and happened to stumble over this site instead. I wavered a little on it, not everything on the site is perfect, but there were enough that were either really cute or just flat-out gorgeous that I had to eventually cave. The artist is especially amazing at drawing Tsuna, the one of him in full Vongola wear is just stunning and worth the site alone for that one. But she's also got a cute one of Haru and Kyoko together, she's got a pretty one of Hibari, she's got a really hot Squalo illustration, a really beautiful Chrome one, and so forth. For a site that's pro-Mukuro/Tsuna, there was a really nice amount of the other characters and they were all really pretty! (Some Mukuro/Tsuna, some gen.)

- Nabari no Ou - [ Chinese Fanart Site ] - If there's a proper site for this artist, I would love to find it, rather than linking to this account, but neither I or ashleigh_lin (who linked me here in the first place) know where it is. I might not have linked here anyway, since I try to abide by the rules as much as I can, but--! SO GORGEOUS OMG. There are some stunning images found on these pages, the one of Yoite and Miharu in the forest is a personal favorite because the colors and details and everything about it are just so lush and beautiful. Even the sketches have the same amazing detail and beautiful quality where I feel like I could stare at each and every piece for an hour, there's just something so... slick and pretty about the style. I'm having a terrible time describing this artist's work, but it's probably my favorite site that I've seen so far in the Nabari fandom, it's absolutely worth visiting. ♥ (Some Yoite/Miharu.)

- Nabari no Ou - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I definitely wish there had been more art on this site, I think there was probably less than ten illustrations total, but! Nabari is kind of a small-ish fandom as far as I can tell and I really did like this site a lot. It took me about three clicks into the gallery to come to fall for the site, because there's a surprising amount of detail in her Miharu illustrations and the one where he's going all Shinra Banshou, the words starting to crawl up his skin is gorgeous for the beautiful colors and soft, clean lines of it. *__* There's also another gorgeous one of Yoite crying and a few of the rest of the cast and... there might not be a lot of art here, but what is here is absolutely worth your while. A very satisfying little site. ♥ (Maybe a smidge of Yoite/Miharu, but on the level of canon.)

- Nabari no Ou - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - It took me a minute to figure out where the Nabari no Ou art was on this site, but it was totally worth the extra effort. The artist has these really lovely, shining colors that just about glow and combines them with nice, clean lines and often times a lot of detail to make these pieces that are just... really pretty. It might not be everyone's favorite style, the artist definitely goes with the canon style of skinny limbs and huge eyes, especially on Miharu, but they're gorgeous big, green eyes on him. *__* In the b&w images you can really see how pretty the artist's linework is and she really nails the canon style. I enjoyed this site a lot. *__* (Yoite/Miharu.)

- Nabari no Ou - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - Maybe I'm just easy on fandom right now since it's all new and shiny and everything, but I think it's also just that I'm quietly charmed by the cuteness of the art here. Plus, it's nice to see some Raikou/Gau after all the Yoite/Miharu that I've been seeing (not that I don't love them and seek them out first, mind <3) and there's even a little of the other characters. It's a lot of cute oekaki art, but some of them are really adorable--the chibi Raikou/Gau one where they're holding the oversized brush together? SUPER CUTE. There are even a couple of interesting ones of Shijima, which always makes me happy. XD (Some Raikou/Gau, some Yoite/Miharu.)

- Nabari no Ou - Pitapan [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I went a little back and forth on this site, there's not a lot of art here and not everything was my cup of tea. But there's one really fantastic illustration of Shijima that stuck with me while I was browsing the rest of the gallery and I couldn't quite let go of it. And the more I clicked, the more I realized that I was really kind of enjoying the girls on this site more than the illustrations of the guys, which is a rare thing in Nabari fandom, I suspect. So I wanted to recommend it just for the cool little illustrations of the girls and a nice little stop this afternoon. ♥ (No warnings/pairings.)

- Nabari no Ou - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - This is the other site that ashleigh_lin linked me to when getting me into Nabari no Ou and it's definitely one of my favorite sites from the fandom so far. The art starts out in a very solid style, clean lines and a good amount of detail and all that, but it quickly gets really pretty and you can see the artist grow and grow until she's doing gorgeous stuff. There's one of Yoite and Miharu sleeping against each other on the train that's just perfect, there's a fantastic one of Shijima leaping onto Kouichi's head that's gorgeously done, there's a bunch of really fantastic oekaki, there's a gorgeous one of Kouichi shedding feathers, there's a stunning one of Miharu and "yosei-san", there's-- well, there's a lot of really gorgeous art on this site. I love the colors that work perfectly with the artist's lines, I love how smooth everything is, I love how polished all of it is, I love how amazing each piece is. This is one of those must-see sites in the fandom that will spoil you for just about everything else. ♥♥♥ (Some Yoite/Miharu, some gen.)

- Tales of the Abyss - mon*o*crhome [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - You know, the Ion and Sync sites are not necessarily something that I would seek out on my own, but when they keep getting dumped into my lap like this, it's hard to complain. There's not a ton of art here, but the artist has some really cool and interesting illustrations to look at and you can really tell how much she likes the characters. Plus, her chibis are super adorable! So, it was just a nice, fun little stop this morning. (Maybe some Sync/Ion, but it could be gen, too.)

- Tales of the Abyss/Odin Sphere - B.T.Bing [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - This is a bit of an odd collection of art and I wasn't sure I was going to stick around at first, but about a third of the way into the site, the art got really interesting and really kinda pretty. Admittedly, I did start off as weak to the site because the first image I saw was a cute one of Luke/Tear, but then it was more about Sync or Ion or Jade/Luke, which were surprisingly detailed when I stopped to really look at them. The artist's Sync is especially fantastic to look at in the later images, whether super sharp lines or a cool stylized effect or just looking fantastic. There's only a handful of Odin Sphere illustrations, but! The first one is really pretty Oswald/Gwendolyn and then, about halfway through the gallery, there are more of them. *__* There's one of Oswald sitting in a chair with Gwendolyn draped over his lap and HI OTP FANART IT'S BEEN AWHILE I HAVE MISSED YOU. So. It's not a huge site, but it had some really great stuff on it. <3 (No real consistent themes for ToA, some Oswald/Gwendolyn and some gen for OS.)

- Yu-Gi-Oh! - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - Oh, shoot. I usually like to combine sites when I do a rec for them and I just recommended this site for the Tales of the Abyss art, but it wasn't until after I posted the rec and was poking around the rest of the galleries that I noticed there actually was kind of a whole lot of YGO art. And that it was really pretty a lot of times! The artist has this really slick style, everything looks like it shines and the lines of the art are so clean and it combines with this almost chibi-esque sort of style and there's a variety of characters covered and it just. It's a really great site for me! I especially love it when the artist takes on some lighter, airier colors, it makes everything in the images look softer and really kind of amazing. Her Kaiba and her Bakura are especially well done, I thought. *___* (Nothing I'm really going to warn for.)
