Victory Dalek Poster, by Francesco Francavilla. Doctor Who. Gen.

For my second day of fannish love, I bring you - um. Robots who hate you? Sorry. That is just how I say "I love you," and Best Beloved will back me up on this if you ask her.

This art is so fabulous. I want this on a poster. I think it would look fetching on my wall. (Or imagine it hung up at your place of work! Think how much it would improve your days, if not necessarily your personnel evaluations.) But, really, the place for this art is on a postcard that you can attach to your dashboard.

See, I used to have a really long commute, and keep in mind that I live in Los Angeles, where people who have commutes that take under an hour are considered lucky to the point where they are sometimes shunned at parties. And so, like I imagine most people do on the freeway, I would fantasize about having a disintegration beam mounted on my car that I could use to target other drivers. (Don't fret. I had a totally fair system worked out to make sure I didn't disintegrate people just because I was in a bad mood. If I ever run for Keeper of the Universe, one of my slogans will be: "You can trust me with all the disintegration beams." Or maybe: "Only disintegrating the unworthy, since 1999." VOTE FOR ME.)

My point is, if I had had this on a postcard to stare at during times of total traffic stoppage that turned out to be caused by, say, some idiot not understanding how to do a zipper merge, I would have - um. Actually, probably fantasized about the disintegration beams even more.

But I would also have fantasized about being a Dalek. And I think, in the end, that's what fanart can bring to us: New horizons, new visions, new hopes. (It just so happen that this specific piece of fanart brings us visions and hopes of exterminating large swathes of humans and then doing the Dalek Beep of Victory. THAT IS MY HOPE FOR TODAY, OKAY? DON'T JUDGE.)

(And while I'm recommending things, let me recommend [community profile] fanart_recs, a community for, as you might possibly have guessed, fanart recs. I don't know if I got this one from there, but I do find a lot of great fanart there. So awesome!)
