While I wait patiently for my rarewomen assignment, I'll share a fic I wrote with you. It's just a little Carmen Sandiego character study that I wrote as a way of getting my fanfic groove back after so much stress. I was beginning to wonder if the well had run dry for me on this fandom, but nope. Well, let's just say i still have a lot of plotbunnies but not usually easily executed one-shots, so I decided to just write it.

While I'm on the subject of female criminal masterminds, let me give you my review of Queenpin by Megan Abbott

This book, it rocks )

In other news, I just finished Jacqueline Carey's newest book, Dark Currents! I liked it. So expect an extra special review post from me about it soon.

Just got back from my conference late last night and I'm playing catch up on the Fandom Snowflake Challenge! Luckily the Snowflake people are as chill as their name suggests and aren't too particular about late entries. So, allons-y!

Wow, my super talented fellow longtime Carmenfan Mirei just made six panels of manga depicting the opening scene of Blue Alert, the Carmen/Ivy NYR fic I wrote for [ profile] cheshireempress I'm stunned and amazed and just so honored. All my years in fandom (and granted some of them have been inactive...) and this is the first time anyone has ever made fanart of one of my stories. It's also really cute and very well done. That scene in particular is very well suited to manga/comic adaptation. Check them out over at Deviant Art.

I should also note that Mirei, in addition to being a generous and talented fanartist, is also the author of one of my all-time favorite Carmenfics, Sincerely. In a nutshell, this fic pretty much depicts the heartbeat of the show and why I find the relationship between Carmen and "her" detectives so compelling. (hey the show had a lot of range for a 90s kids cartoon, I swear!) 

My two favorite panels )
I really like how she did the backgrounds- it really looks like New York City. Plus i can't draw to save my life, so I'm always impressed by anything artistic.This really made my week. :D
