Title: A Cat May Look at a King
Gift for: [livejournal.com profile] oteap
Artist: [livejournal.com profile] chomiji
Rating: PG (in case someone is anxious about skeletons)
Fandom: Discworld
Warnings: nothing, really - it's mainly symbolic
Artist's Notes: mixed media (free-hand paper cutting in black rag writing paper and blue wrapping foil, over watercolor wash with salt sprinkled)
Summary: Death was definitely the oddest thing I've ever tried to cut out of a sheet of paper. Because I was including Greebo, I needed something to balance him, and one of Paul Kidby's illustrations suggested to me a kitten, whom I have given height to match Greebo's by perching on one of Death's iconic hourglasses.

Fandom: Discworld (The Amazing Maurice and his Educated Rodents)
Characters: Keith, Malicia, Maurice, Darktan, Nourishing, Sardines, Dangerous Beans, Peaches, Big Savings, and miscellaneous other rats
Warnings: none
Artist notes: You said you liked creatures and companions and pets, so I hope this fits the bill! The buildings in the background were taken (and highly messed with!) from a stock photo. I have a much huger-sized version I can send you after the reveal :)
Summary: After the end of the book, Bad Blintz isn't so bad. Maybe it's even the kind of place Maurice would like to retire (after a few more adventures...)

Title: Mirror of Worlds
Gift for: [livejournal.com profile] curtana
Artist: [livejournal.com profile] tingirl
Rating: G
Fandom: Discworld, Dark Tower
Warnings: n/a
Artist's Notes: Prompted by the frequent observation that Granny's status is not unlike that of a gunslinger in the Old West...I had intended this to be color, but sepia so fit the mood of both 'verses. I did have to think hard about which coven to go with, but Agnes and Susannah's mutual..affliction? ability?--sealed the deal.:)
Summary: The Tower has defenders in all worlds, even if they don't know it. In the world of the Turtle, where the doorways are sometimes thin, even a thing like tobacco smoke can sometimes slip through a door. Roland wouldn't have spent the whole afternoon at the Door. His group was intruding, offending the old woman with the gunslinger's gaze. And Susannah and the young woman acted as though they got along, but every word from them had a second meaning he couldn't catch, and it made him uneasy. But Eddie and the weird little woman would not stop talking until the song about improbably hedgehog was over. At least they got some cider to take along with them. Or something like cider, anyway. It was made from apples, the horrible little woman had said....

Title: Happy Hogswatch
Gift for: [livejournal.com profile] sleightofhand
Artist: [livejournal.com profile] coell
Rating: G
Fandom: Discworld
Characters: Death as Hogsfather
Artist notes: With such a huge canon to chose from, I let the season do my picking for me. Hope you enjoy photoshop silliness. I'm diggin' it -- I was tempted to print this out and use it for my holiday cards this year. ^_^
Summary: Excerpt from Hogsfather by Terry Pratchett:
"All right," said Susan, "I'm not stupid. You're saying humans need ... fantasies to make life bearable."

No. Humans need fantasy to be human. To be the place where the falling angel meets the rising ape.

"Tooth fairies? Hogfathers?"

Yes. As practice. You have to start out learning to believe the little lies.

"So we can believe the big ones?"

Yes. Justice. Mercy. Duty. That sort of thing.

"They're not the same at all!"

Take the universe and grind it down to the finest powder and sieve it through with the finest sieve and then show me one atom of justice, one molecule of mercy. And yet you act as if there were some sort of rightness in the universe by which it may be judged.

"Yes. But people have got to believe that or what's the point

Rating:: PG?
Fandom: Stardust and Discworld
Characters: Captain Shakespeare, Corporal Nobbs
Warnings: None
Artist notes: I fail at backgrounds...assume this is in Shakespeare's ship, I suppose
Summary: With two magical worlds, both of which have been shown to connect to other worlds... why couldn't the Watch and Shakespeare's crew run into each other? And it seems only natural that Shakespeare would encourage Nobby's interest in women's clothing... Here's our favorite pair of transvestites, trying on some pretty dresses.

Title: Granny Weatherwax's New Pet?
Gift for: [livejournal.com profile] tingirl
Artist: [livejournal.com profile] agirlnamedrage
Rating:: G
Fandom: Discworld (x-over with The Dark Crystal)
Characters: Granny Weatherwax, Nanny Ogg, Magrat Garlick, Greebo and Fizzgig
Artist notes: I love the Witches myself, and I love how both cuddly and feral Greebo and Fizzgig both are! I know that Kira owns Fizzgig in The Dark Crystal, and that Granny receives a kitten from Tiffany Aching in the future ("You"), but well. Imagine this happens in a place where there's a dimension rip, even before the coven changes. Created with pencil on tea-stained paper, and Photoshop CS2, with amateur skills. I hope you like it [personal profile] tingirl! ^___^
Summary: Granny's as unshakable as usual; Nanny's quite sure Greebo doesn't mean Granny's new adoptee any harm-- but Magrat is suspicious: is that really a cat? Greebo is... well, Greebo is Greebo.

Rating: G
Fandom: Discworld & House MD
Characters: Left to right: Chase, Death, Cameron, Rincewind, House,
Wilson, Cuddy, Quoth (the Raven), Foreman
Artist notes: This took far longer than it ought to have, with
illness and computer troubles and travelling. Still, it came out looking
pretty good. Yes, the ''wizzard' spelling is deliberate. This is the
closest I am able to get to humour, but the idea was humourous to me at
least. I enjoyed this idea. Reference for the House characters is from a
promoshot for said show. Hope you like!
Summary: Rincewind has fallen ill, but House and his team are there
to help. Even Death and Quoth has shown up to watch. (Basically just a
group picture!)
