Ok everyone, scour your hard-drives! Due to my purchasing of a new computer, my other two are in various stages of not-togetherness, and I am currently unable to dig through my Jim Butcher folder and get what I need on my own. Google has become the bane of my existence, so I fall upon your mercy.

What I need: Cover art from all 5 books. Decent size. In an ideal world, I'd like the art for all of them to be the same size. (With title/author listed is perfectly fine).

What I need them for: To revamp the comm and make it all pretty (as much as I like the stripes).

If you can help, let me know, and I'll give you my e-mail address so you can send them to me.

Thanks in advance.

[livejournal.com profile] spark_force saved the day! I will attempt to make the new banner tonight and get things changed around this coming week.

I just stayed up WAY past my bedtime (considering I have to work tomorrow), to finish the book.

My reaction: Holy crap!

I have more to say, but all of it's spoilery, and as I mentioned, I should be sleeping.

Quick statement before I forget. HUGE SPOILERS!!! )

2 weeks until book 5 is released. For the first time since book 1, I've stayed completely spoiler free. Which is completely abnormal for me. :) I've not visited the forum, nor read the sample chapters.

I hope Princeps Fury sparks some good conversation with us here, as I know it's been fairly lacking.

Hey all! I absolutely love, love, Jim Butcher's work; had no idea this community was here! Anyway, I made a couple of wallpapers from the 'Academ's Fury' cover:




Hope you like 'em! =]

The announcement: "Starting Tuesday September 23rd and throughout the next several weeks, we'll be posting preview chapters of Princeps' Fury, with at least one new chapter every Tuesday for much of September and October (running from the Prologue to Chapter Five)."

The location: Find them here.

Since I don't want to hotlink and chew up Jim's bandwidth, here's the URL: http://www.jim-butcher.com/pics/princeps400.jpg

Hopefully a HiRes version will follow, along with a wallpaper from [livejournal.com profile] priscellie

I will attempt to make the PF icon with this version, but it may have to wait for the HiRes. I'll make a post here when it's finished.

A lot of people have been abandoning LJ for Insane Journal where fandom is concerned. I do have a journal there just in case things here get really out of hand. I was wondering though if I should open up a comm over there too.

We now know the title and tentative release date for Book 5. My information comes from Amazon.com, as I'm no longer active over on the Jim Butcher forums.

This is my first canvas painting for my school's art gallery. Gosh, it was messy and full of trial and errors for me.

The theme was to pick a quote or lyric and paint a picture of what it's significance means to myself. The quote I pick was from Captain's Fury.  I chose to draw Fade because he had a lot of shit happen to him. Haha, no kidding.

how are we supposed to discuss things without spoiling it for others? i mean there are things i want to talk about, but cant because it will spoil it for others who havent read it. i think we should mabye discuss things about the first 2 books or first 3, but i dont want to spoil anyones reading.

Hey, while I'm not exactly new, I've decided to make a post because I'm just twitching to discuss the series here.  Frankly, I'm a little daunted by the official forum, haha.

Not much of a first post...

I just want to have some fun the these 10 questions.

[identity profile] phantommizery.livejournal.com

Hey guys, thought id start with the 5 questions...

Why did you start reading the Codex of Alera? I was reading the dresden files and when i went to find a new series, i saw that Jim had made a new series, picked it up and havent put it down since. im only on Academs Fury.
Whats your favorite character?  Bernard, i have an uncle just like him.
If you could have a fury, what would it be? Wind of course. who doesnt want to be able to fly.
If you could take one item from our world to Alera what would it be? A fully loaded M1 with a scope.
Explain your LJ name. Its also my Xbox Live acount name. If you play COD 4 or Halo 3, add me.

It just dawned on me that I have not let anyone here know about my site changing. I finally have a new (and better) host for my graphics. And I am now able to use the Coppermine Gallery, so searching through all my icons and such is much easier now.

Here is a direct link to the Gallery as I'm sure none of you are interested in any of my other ramblings. :) Feel free to go and check it out as there is an album specifically for Jim Butcher, with all of my Codex icons in it. The Codex LJ banners are in the banner section. And eventually, I'm sure I will make the Captain's Fury one to go with the other three.

Yes...I am begging for you to go visit.

The new banner is up, though I'm not sure I really like it. I also re-did the community info and updated the interests a bit.

Hope everyone likes it.
