don't even get me started
( concerto for two violins in g minor | fic masterpost )

Italy, 1703. Arthur is an orphan with a hidden talent for the violin who is sent from his quiet but dull life in a small monastery to study music in Venice. A story about missing violins, lost ducal heirs, mysterious masked men, gondola chases, falling in love with your concert master, music, and finding your place in the world. (A love song to Vivaldi's Ring of Mystery.)

[ art | mix | fic on dw | fic on ao3 ]


Notes: This story, written for inception_bang, is one part homage to a great kid's story that I loved when I was younger and one part homage to Vivaldi himself, I guess, where homage means "implying he had a relationship with a student and was kind of disreputable." Oops! I apologize in advance to anyone particularly knowledgeable about Baroque history as I took a sort of A Knight's Tale approach to history here and that may drive you to distraction.

Profuse thank you's are due to a lot of people here. First and foremost, to [personal profile] juana_a who did the amazing art and equally amazing mix for this story and was generally a dream (ha ha) to collaborate with. To kick_back_80s for the much-needed beta! To [personal profile] dondarrion for being my cheerleader in chief as always! And to all my ladies (Aida, Haku, Kat, and Nelly) for keeping me from freaking out too badly and for teaching me how to spell Cobb's name canonically before I embarrassed myself on this, my first de-anoning in the fandom.

drive-by festivid recs!

screw you in the ear lie to me
I kind of expect that those of you interested in the relevant fandoms have probably seen these, but I really just have to rec both of these vids because they are both superbly done and (especially in the second case), I have had a bad habit of obsessively re-watching over the past two days.

In this corner: Karaoke Soul, Luther, Luther/Alice, with all the such a bad idea, just-barely-in-control, oh lord what am I doing, feeding each other's worst impulses that that entails. Creepy and dark and just the kind of vid that makes you shout WHY DO I SHIP THIS at yourself while gleefully hunkering down with popcorn to watch it again.

And in the other corner: Children's Work, Life, Dani+Charlie, AND OH MY GOD MY FEELINGS LET ME CUT OUT MY HEART AND SHOW THEM TO YOU. One of those instances where the amazing editing and the impeccable, unbearably perfect song choice combine to make a vid so good you want to claw your own face off. Dani Reese was always my favourite thing about Life, and this vid gets her completely and in a way that manages to be really insightful and heart-wrenching about her relationship with Charlie too.

no you are a brain strumpet
I'm finally starting to feel properly moved in on Dreamwidth so now is probably a good time to announce that I have officially moved to DW and will be using it as my primary journal from here on. Release 88 was just kind of the final straw for me. I'll keep crossposting and checking in with the LJ friends list, so I shouldn't lose track of those of you who aren't moving. And I'll be spending this week trying to track down and add all of you who are or already have! Feel free to add me as well. I'm still [personal profile] riko and thus very easy to find.

The only things I won't be keeping updated on LJ anymore are my RP journal (arcing), which I doubt anyone cared about anyway, and my fic scrap journal (treeing). You're welcome to come hang out at [community profile] treeing, though. I'll be importing all the old entries there too once community importing for free journals opens up.

I've changed my layout on LJ to something which will hopefully be accessible even on the custom comment page for people who still read my fic on LJ but if anyone ever has any sort of problem with it, please feel free to send me a PM, and I'll try to find a better option.

And now I promise that the next time I update, I will have actual content people care about. /off to wash dishes and eat egg tarts!

This is just to test out crossposting, mostly!

Merry Christmas Eve Day for all of you for whom that is a thing you recognize. See y'all in a few days to everyone else. :)

I'm not going to go into a big thing about LJ's new comment page design/loss of functionality because I think most people have said it better at this point. I'm going to go where my friends go, ultimately, though I have informed LJ that I will not be paying for any of my accounts until comment functionality is restored or they actually produce an S2 old-style comment page option, one which is hopefully not terribly broken and inaccessible the way current S2 styles are. I may start cross-posting from DW (where I'm also riko) to LJ, but that remains to be decided as I still have Issues with DW which prevent it from becoming a real alternative for me. FUN.

The most important thing was to let everyone know that I'll be looking into a more readable layout for this journal, so that custom comment pages can be turned on without making my fic inaccessible/unpleasant for reading, and that most of my stories are available on AO3 (where I'm once more riko!) in the meantime.

STAY STRONG EVERYONE.
