The challenge was to do something for a show we'd "just discovered." Mine is Doctor Who. Okay, okay, I know, I'm decades late. Here's to Series 8 and Clara, Madame Vastra, and Jenny!

For a challenge at [ profile] womenverse. This was cool, I'd never seen mood boards before. At first I was stumped, but thanks to [ profile] blue_sunflowers, it kind of popped. It's her creativity that inspired the Luna one; I admire how her suggestions were all adjectives, while the ones I came up with on my own were mostly nouns. That means something I think.

Guess who... )
catko: (BSG Starbuck)
Like fandoms? Like playing games, making art, writing stories? Like women???

Then join us at [ profile] womenverse, a creative landcomm focusing on our favorite females.

We came up with items that matched with women characters, then had to take pictures of ten of those items. Fortunately, I was able to take most of these shots without standing up from my desk. A few of them I had to go across the hall. None of them are the same as the ones used by the characters, though. Especially the phone, LOL. I also copied the full list of items and characters under the cut, because it's cool.

Pics here. Very workaday... )

At [ profile] womenverse, we submitted stock photos, then got them randomly assigned to us to make something with. I chose to do mini-mixes for mine. All artists are women or include women. Click for bigger!

catko: (Astrid Dawn)
For [ profile] womenverse, for two women characters randomly selected from fandoms I provided. I got Alt-Astrid from Fringe and Dawn from Buffy!

How They Met
Fandom: Fringe, Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Rating: G
Words: 441
Notes: This didn't quite get to the heart of what these two have in common, but I might get there sometime.

Dawn wound... )

I see both of these young women as sometimes feeling ostracized, different, left out. Major identity issues, right? But they also have strength and power and independence. So, here is a fanmix honoring that.

catko: (Castle Martha)
Fun challenge at [ profile] womenverse to interview a favorite character. I chose to use the so-named Proust Questionnaire as done by Vanity Fair magazine. I've always liked this short, sometimes profound, often silly, format.

The Proust Questionnaire: Martha Rodgers
Vanity Fair is thrilled that this month’s Proust Questionnaire Interview is with Martha Rodgers, currently appearing in the Matrix Theater’s production of The Winter’s Tale, and also mother to famed mystery writer, Richard Castle.

What is your... )

catko: (Elementary Joan)
For a challenge at [ profile] womenverse, to honor a character that only appears a few times. Ms. Hudson, from Elementary, is played by Candis Cayne, who was just featured in this week's Time Magazine piece on "transgender people who influenced American culture." Here's what Sherlock and Joan say about her--I meant to incorporate these into the cover, but couldn't quite do it. The songs celebrate her strength and her talents, and encourage her to keep being herself!

  • Sherlock: Miss Hudson is a fascinating woman. She has an Oxford don's knowledge of ancient Greek, but she's a complete autodidact. Well actually its a very fitting field of study for Ms. Hudson, considering she makes her living as something of a muse.

  • Joan: Are we fleeing from the scene of a murder because Miss Hudson and her boyfriend were up half the night yelling at each other?

  • Ms. Hudson: He said he wants me back. But…he just wants to stick me in some walk-up, giving me a clothing allowance.

  • Ms. Hudson (gesturing around the library): You start with the hard sciences on the north wall, and then you move clockwise around the room in descending order of academic rigor That way, Physics by Aristotle is as far away from You Can Learn Telepathy by Morton Zuckerman as possible...I have a touch of OCD. It seems to flare up after a breakup.

  • Watson: I like Ms. Hudson. You know, she's lost. She's just trying to figure herself out…I think it would be good if Ms. Hudson learned to take care of herself, that's all.

Songs! )
