Resistance selfie by akabeko
Resistance selfie
Still suffering from my art block (thus the atrocious colouring) but I'm also utterly in love with the new Star Wars movie so I wanted to at least draw some simple fan art for it... any here we are, the Light Side of the Force squad has found a piece of retro technology and is having fun with it :D

A Shipping Meme - 2015 version by akabeko
A Shipping Meme - 2015 version
A Shipping Meme - 2015 version

Just for fun I decided to draw a new version of the couples meme I filled out back in 2011 - quite a lot has changed since then and loads of new ships have joined my "fleet", so I thought it was time for an update.

Here we go:

The most favourite
This hasn't changed, actually: my all-time OTP is still the Bentley-driving demon and the book-loving angel trying to prevent Armageddon in Sir Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman's wonderful novel "Good Omens" - I still ship them so hard. 

The most recent: "Coliver"
The slightly asshole-y law student and the shy IT guy from ABC's crime show "How To Get Away With Murder". Second season starts tonight, I'm so excited (though I find the show itself only so-so, to be honest I only watch for the Coliver >///<)

The sweetest: "The Ponds"
The feisty Scottish lass who travels time and space with her not-so imaginary friend, and the brave and loyal nurse who waits for her for 2,000 years, from the BBC's "Doctor Who". They are absolute  sweethearts and I adore them.

The most passionate
The witty Edwardian girl with too many prejudices and the super rich, super socially awkward gentleman with too much pride. I love them in all incarnation (Jane Austen's original novel, movies, TV shows) but most of all in the 1995 BBC mini series with wet!Colin First :blush:

The most complicated: "Kalagang"
The German burglar with a problematic family and the Indian pharmacist marrying a man she doesn't love. 'Complicated' because they're telepatically and emotionally linked and meet when Wolfgang appears at Kala's wedding butt-naked... Netflix's sci-fi show"Sense8" is amazing :D

The most unexpected: "Nolly"
The actor and singer of 'Years & Years', actual sunshine despite a shitty past, and the DJ and violinist of 'Clean Bandit', nerdy and childish despite two Cambridge degrees. They met on tour in Oct 2014 and are adorable . 'Unexpected' because I never thought I'd ship real people but... yeah.

The funniest: "Herlito"
The slightly dramaqueen-y telenovela and action movie star and the art lover, talented cook and wresting fan, again from Netflix's "Sense8", which I'm slightly obsessed with at the moment and where I actually love all four canon couples from.

The most tragic: "Marmiike"
The passionate political activist and his brother-in-arms and best friend from the wonderful British comedy "Pride". The real people these characters are based on were never a couple, though.

Family
The socially awkward engineer and the no-nonsense microbiologist - they are the sweetest and for a while were the only reason I kept watching TBBT when it had lost its zing. I also ship Howard with Raj, btw, but more with Bernie (so the opposite of the Sirius/Remus/Tonks situation XD)

Best friends
The Malibu cheerleader who applies to Harward Law to win back her lousy ex, and the hard-working tutor who encourages her to study in earnest from the musical "Legally Blonde". They complete each other so wonderfully and I adore them. 

Extra pairing #1: "Everlark"
The socially awkward archer and the loyal baker from Suzanne Collins' dystopian YA trilogy "The Hunger Games" - I love them both in the novels and their movie version, and am looking forward to the last film~

Extra pairing #2
The promiscous L.A. party boy and the Mormon missionary from the 2003 low-budget indie gay romance "Latter Days". The film is my guilty pleasure and I regret nothing XD


Heh, I've only just noticed myself but it looks like I clearly have a type XDDDD (with straight couples, those where the girl is wearing the pants, and with gay couples, those with no heteronormative seme/uke roles) Also, I love socially awkward characters... wonder why that might be the case ^^;;

If anybody wants to introduce me to their current OTPs, please do, I'd love to get to know them!!

Volunteering by akabeko
Volunteering
In May this year, Austria hosted the 60th Eurovision Song Contest after fabulous Conchita had won last year’s competition in Copenhagen, and the Austrian national broadcaster ORF ‘employed’  800 volunteers to help stage the event.

I couldn’t miss such a great opportunity to experience up-close the “behind the scenes” of such a huge event, so I signed up and after a lengthy casting process involving interviews and English tests and translating French texts directly from the sheet, I was able to grab a spot among the lucky 800 and was assigned at the Press Center.

There, we had to assist the 2.000 accredited journalists, tell them where to find stuff/people, hand them their mail and promotion goodies, assign them time slots for interviews with the artists, pass the microphone during press conferences… it was extremely fun and exciting and I learned a lot about how television works, and we were even able to attend one of the shows (in my case, second semi finale) for free.

I cannot recommend volunteering enough – if you ever get the chance to be part of a event like the ESC, grab it with both hands, it’s amazing!!

…and as for this picture, I decided to draw a manga (or rather, collection of four-panel strips) about all the crazy stuff that happened at the Press Center during those two weeks, and this is the cover illustration~
