07.19.17 - Kraglin & Nebula XD by CaptBexx (SFW)
I'm here to rec Guardians of the Galaxy this month! Most of my recs will contain spoilers for GotG2, though I'll try to avoid or cut anything REALLY spoilery in the description.

Fandom: Guardians of the Galaxy
Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: Nebula & Kraglin Obfonteri
Content Notes/Warnings: none
Medium: sketch
Artist on DW/LJ: n/a
Artist Website/Gallery: CaptBexx on Deviantart | CaptBexx on Tumblr
Why this piece is awesome: This is an energetic piece that focuses on a minor character interaction in the movie and takes it to a playful conclusion. The simple but expressive sketchy/cartoony style works beautifully for the light subject matter.

07.18.17 - "Diana yes!" by critter-of-habit (SFW)
Fandom: Wonder Woman
Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: Diana Prince + friends
Content Notes/Warnings: fluff!
Medium: digital painting
Artist on DW/LJ: n/a

Why this piece is awesome: I'll give you a heroic WW pic next (in fact there's one in this artist's art tumblr if you scroll down a few), but this one's pure fluff, in every respect. After the baby and the ice cream, I think we all know this is exactly what would happen. My title, as tumblr posts are often untitled, the site not having made that a natural part of posting.

Times-Dispatch’s Rachel Marsden wrote After months of gossip, speculation and fan fiction, U.S. President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin finally met in person for the first time at last week’s G-20 summit in Hamburg, Germany.

For The Brag, Nathan Jolly wrote that Joel McHale from Community, The Soup (and your fan fiction) is coming to Sydney

In ‘Much loved misfits’ in The Hans India: It is an easy task for writers to be fan fiction writers as there is no need to start from the ground up, people just borrow established characters and stories and add their own take and thoughts to it.

From Star Weekly: Julie Dollery used to juggle a job at IBM while writing fan fiction online. When she was made redundant, the 50-year-old Sanctuary Lakes resident used it as an opportunity to focus on her writing. She tells Charlene Macaulay about completing her first book, and her love of Wyndham.
