Author’s Note: A gift for [livejournal.com profile] peggy_lane as part of the 2016 [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_xmas exchange. Sorry to make you wait so long! I’m a chronic procrastinator. Trying to get better about that, but… :-/ Thank you to the mods also for their patience.

Fic is not [yet] fully beta’d, but thank you to [livejournal.com profile] non_tiembo_mala, [livejournal.com profile] gluedwithgold, [livejournal.com profile] alyndra and [livejournal.com profile] akintay for their varying levels of support during the inception and creation of this.

Merry [belated] Christmas to you all! I hope you like the fic. ♥

Title: Wireless Connection
Rating: G (PG-13 for Fic)
Fandom: Supernatural RPF
Pairing: Jensen/Jared
Characters: Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki

Summary: Art for Wireless Connection, written by the amazing [livejournal.com profile] lotrspnfangirl, and my second entry for the 2016 [livejournal.com profile] j2_reversebang!

Jared finds stress relief in Twitter as a second-year nursing student. Over summer break, he becomes friends with Jackles @profjackles, aka Jensen. He doesn't even know what Jensen looks like, but he can’t help from falling for the man he met online anyway. Their relationship changes unexpectedly when Jensen accepts a new job at Jared's university. Nursing school is not nearly as hard as discovering that the guy you've fallen for is actually your professor.

Another week gone by, another week of daily doodles! Remember that you can see new drawings first if you follow me on twitter, as I do post all doodles there daily :)

As this first one could sort of count as fanart (it's meant to be J2), I'll leave it above the cut. Hope you enjoy all the rest of my drawings too! Thanks for checking them out at least ^_^ ♥

Day 8 - "Fall Fairies"
This was drawn in honor of [livejournal.com profile] gluedwithgold's birthday, and it came from her prompt (something along the lines of "idk, fairies? Maybe fall? Ooh! Fall fairies!). I did 'cheat' a little on this one (outlined in pencil first); even so, ballpoint pen and not-so-fine-tipped Sharpies that bleed make for very frustrating tools. :sigh: I do enjoy the FallFairy!J2 concept though, so maybe I'll recreate this digitally someday ;)



MOAR ART :D )
And that concludes another week of arting from me! I hope you all have wonderful weekends, and I'll be back again next week with more! ♥

It all started with a journal... a wedding present from someone who doesn't really know me that well, and therefore thought that I would use a "My Favorite Moment of the Day" journal [for its intended purpose]. Heh. Yeah, no. Never let it be said that I'm not a bit of an ass, lol.



Anyhoo, I've decided to participate in Inktober! I post these daily to my twitter, but I've decided to post weekly summaries here, too, as suggested by the lovely [livejournal.com profile] amberdreams, who is also creating some fantastic drawings for this month-long 'challenge'. There's a ton of awesome art coming out of this, and I hope you enjoy my small contribution! :)
ALL THE ARTS )
And there you have it! My first week of Inktober drawings. I've already drawn and posted Day Eight (another birthday drawing, for [livejournal.com profile] gluedwithgold!), but you won't see it on LJ until next week ;) Until then, I'll see you on twitter (I hope!) :) ♥

HAI.

So, I'm discovering that, lately, my approach to LJ is just stopping by occasionally to create list-posts of everything I have on my fandom plate at the moment. Which, is a lot, lol.

FIRST though - I AM NOW MARRIED. MY WEDDING IS DONE, YAY! Haha. It was an awesome day, darn near perfect, and it was all around wonderful. I hope to share some pics and maybe some little stories from it soon, but I'll make that its own post. For now, have a FANDOM PROJECT UPDATE.
UPDATE )

So yeah! I'm keeping myself crazy busy as usual! But I'm having so much fun collaborating with fellow fans, and embracing my creative side, so I don't regret one bit of it :) We should have the rest of our wedding pics by the end of today, so hopefully I'll share some of those with you this weekend! Hope y'all are having a great day! ♥

Sooooooo. Hi. It's me again. Little organizational post to help Manda keep her life straight. Also, an update on things to look forward to from this blog! :D

AUGUST 6 - Claims Day for [livejournal.com profile] spn_cinema! I have a fic idea for one of my favorite movies I'd like to try claiming. I've already written the opening 'scene', so there's that at least. Might also try claiming art for same film? Not sure about that yet. Might be a bit tight schedule-wise, what with wedding planning and all that jazz. [Drafts: Sept. 5; Posting: Oct. 3]

AUGUST 11 - First day in Minneapolis with [livejournal.com profile] non_tiembo_mala, [livejournal.com profile] alyndra, and other lovely SPNFamily for MINNCON!!! OMG. SUPES EXCITES.

Oh gosh, just look at this lovely collection of art and fic, so gorgeously gathered in one pretty post. The [livejournal.com profile] quicky_bang popped my LJ comm/challenge cherry (how appropriate, no?), and it was fantastic preparation for my first [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang, which I just got to post today! (Check it out here!) I've had three opportunities now to work with three amazing authors, and I'm so looking forward to what LJ has next in store! :) Anyhoo, go check out the awesome art and fic below! ♥

Thank you, wonderful and generous authors for offering your short stories to play with. KUDOS to all the amazing artists who enthusiastically claimed those fics and created these cool pieces of fanart.
I love you all so much!

Title: Artwork for The Dizzy Heights of This Dreamed of World
(Also on AO3)
Author: [livejournal.com profile] akintay (whispered_story on AO3)
Artist: [livejournal.com profile] dancing_adrift
Pairing: Jared/Jensen
Rating: G (for art; fic is NC-17)
Medium: Corel Painter Essentials 5
Artist's Notes: Created as part of the 2016 [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang challenge - the whole reason I fully joined LJ in the first place!



THE DIZZY HEIGHTS OF THIS DREAMED OF WORLD | AO3

Summary: Jared is left on the Padaleckis' doorstep as a baby with no clues as to who he is or where he's come from. As he grows up with a life full of love and support from his adoptive family, he never loses the dreams of some far off place with green hills and meadows, a sprawling forest and gurgling stream. It's a beautiful and peaceful there, and every night Jared has his dream landscape all to himself—until he starts hearing a voice calling for him.
When a stranger on a motorcycle shows up on campus a few months later, Jared suddenly has a new reality to consider. Not only is he fae and betrothed to this man—who introduces himself as Jensen—Jared's also in mortal danger. Torn between wanting to keep living a normal life and figuring out who he really is, Jared reluctantly agrees to let Jensen prepare him for the danger up ahead and unearth his own fae powers. As time goes on, he starts to feel more and more drawn to Jensen and he comes to realize that they share a bond that reaches well beyond an arranged marriage.

Hello, LiveJournal! :) Feels like it's been a while. That's possibly due in part to the fact that I have been keeping insanely busy, both in real life and with making art for my [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang claim. We can probably write this off on account of this being my first Big Bang, but I may have seriously over-extended myself. Seriously, I am insane for the amount of art I am determined to do. I'm really pleased with how most of it's turned out so far, but I'm barely even half-way done and I have nine days before we post. I've already met the 'requirement' for BB posting, but I haven't met my *own*. I guess we'll just see how it goes, and cross that bridge when we come to it. My author (*waves at [livejournal.com profile] akintay*) has been more than amazing - so incredibly lucky I got her - but I'm still super afraid that I won't finish and it'll be this big letdown, lol. But I got a bunch of work done yesterday, and I'm going to keep plugging away at it right up until the final hour if I have to.

In semi-related news, I finally broke down and signed up for the [livejournal.com profile] spn_heatwave. I figure it'll be good to keep myself actively arting after BB is over, and this seems like a pretty chill way to do so. (On an unrelated note, does anyone else have the issue where LJ turns the word 'figure' - f i g u r e - into the word 'div' when it's viewed on the mobile app? Oddest problem I've ever seen, lol.) Anyhoo, as most of my BB art has been grayscale, I'm looking forward to creating something summery and *colorful* for the Heatwave comm/challenge thing. Also super psyched to see what other people create :) I've been seeing a lot of meanttobe art and fic postings lately, which is awesome also! Communities and challenges are definitely the reason to be on LJ, and I'm glad to be here :)

Talk to y'all again soon! :) <3

Hello! I figured, with so many exciting things happening in my fanart life right now, I should perhaps post a little update!

FIRST: I did end up claiming another fic for [livejournal.com profile] quicky_bang! I have made much wonderful progress already making art for the short fic "Agora" by [livejournal.com profile] excoyote. It's an adorable story about collegeboy!Jensen discovering this tucked-away bookstore run by agoraphobic!Jared. Its super sweet - you should go give it a read, and know there is schmoopy art soon to be posted for it, right here, by me! :D (And, thanks to the magic of layers, though the story is only rated Mature, I'll have a little NSFW bonus art to share, too ;) So you can look forward to that as well!)

SECOND: The entire reason I really joined LiveJournal - - - [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang ART CLAIMS HAVE HAPPENED! AND PRETTY MUCH ALL MY HOPES AND DREAMS THAT POSSIBLY COULD HAVE COME TRUE DID! I had the incredible luck of snagging one of my absolute favorite authors and lovely friend [livejournal.com profile] akintay's fic, "The Dizzy Heights of This Dreamed of World." I read it the day she sent it to me, and believe you me when I say, "If you like J2 fics, you're gonna love it!" I'm biased, of course, but it really is a wonderful fantasy J2 AU, with tons of visual appeal for an over-eager artist like me. I'm really going to be making so much art for it (I can't help it, it's what I was inspired to do) - that you all are going to think me a brown-nosing jerk. I swear, that's not my intention, I just got really excited about the idea I had, and it just so happened to require me making lots of art. So it's keeping me very, very busy, and I'm having a blast, not only in the shear amount of time spent arting, but also in collaborating with such a great author and friend. I'm so very lucky to have snagged her, especially as a BB!virgin!! XP

On the note of BB art, I've been working primarily in Corel Painter Essentials 5 (the software that came with my drawing tablet, without which none of this would be anywhere near as easy), when before I had stuck pretty close to GIMP. Today, thanks to my friend [livejournal.com profile] gluedwithgold practically forcing me to look at some tutorials, I *finally* figured out layers in Corel, and it's pretty much changed my entire life. It is a whole world of difference, and it's going to make many of my future projects SO much easier. I made some awesome progress tonight, and I'm really, really happy with how it's all coming along.

So yeah! That's my "quick" update for y'all. Jury is still out as to whether or not I'll participate in [livejournal.com profile] spn_heatwave; the desire is still there, but I might be too wiped after QB (should be posted by Tuesday, May 17), and BB (posting schedule starts June 8th!). We will have to see! Anyhoo, lots of art coming from me on this journal in the next month, and I'm really excited about it, and I hope you are too. My next post will probably be the start of it! I'll see you then! <3

So, [livejournal.com profile] non_tiembo_mala, [livejournal.com profile] gluedwithgold, and I recently completed our own little fic-writing challenge over on AO3. Inspired by this picture that Jared Padalecki posted to facebook back in January, we all wrote fics (completely autonomously) and then posted them under in a collection. It was very challenging, firstly because we're not used to being able to rely on each other for help during any part of the writing process. Secondly, and more specifically for me, it was challenging because this is the longest fic I've ever written. I have some in the works that might end up being just as long, but my longest complete fic up to this point had only been 2.6K words - this one is over 16K! I've gotta say, I'm pretty damn proud of the progress I've made as a writer through this challenge. Anyhoo, without further ado, here are the fics! Each one is great in its own respect, and I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. And be sure to send some love if you like 'em! We all thank you for reading! <3

Title: Axl Rose Never Looked So Good (on AO3)
Rating: NC-17
Fandom: Supernatural RPF
Pairing: Jensen/Jared
Characters: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles (with appearances from: Richard Speight Jr., Rob Benedict, Danneel Harris, Aleks Paunovic, Tahmoh Penikett, Matt Cohen, Timothy Omundson, Gil McKinney, Osric Chau, & Misha Collins)
Word Count: ~ 16.5K Full Version on AO3
Disclaimer: Though based off real people, these characters and this story are in no way meant to be representative of fact. Fiction ftw.
Original Post Date: April 17, 2016 on AO3 (Only the first two scenes are below. To read the rest of the story, please visit my AO3 page. Thank you, and enjoy! :)

Summary: Jared and friends are biking through the Rockies on a multi-day road-trip for his 30th birthday. Jensen is the bartender at their last stop.

Author's Note: This was written as part of the "Selfie!Bang" - a challenge in which I, [livejournal.com profile] non_tiembo_mala, and [livejournal.com profile] gluedwithgold each wrote a fic based off the prompt below. This was an interesting experience for us, because we often can be very involved in each others' writing, from concept to beta; this time, however, we wrote completely separately, so everything about our stories was a surprise when we finally posted. It was really fun to see the variations and similarities that occurred. Plus, for me, it really pushed me to write more. This is the longest fic I've ever written, by a LONG shot, and I'm pretty proud of myself for being able to accomplish that. Anyhoo, enough from me. The opening two scenes are below; if you want to read the rest, it's all available on AO3. Thanks for checking it out! <3

Prompt: Jared's post-hiatus hair/rockstar!selfie posted to social media on 01/13/16.

This [livejournal.com profile] spn_heatwave definitely sounds awesome. A huge part of me wants to participate, while another part of me is like, "Run away! You're nowhere near good enough!" lol. But I do want to practice making art more (because how else does one improve??), so this is so very tempting. Sign ups go through June 1st; perhaps I'll see how [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang and any other [livejournal.com profile] quicky_bangs go first, and then maybe I'll jump in to play? Regardless of if I take part or not, I'm very excited about this event. Check it out! :)

I'm having a hard time braining right now (I just submitted two job applications, and that always wipes me right out), but I still want to post an update re: several fandom things about which I am excited...so I am resorting to a bulleted list. And all items are "Bang!" related, so, well, that's cool, right? XP

  • I submitted art for a challenge!! :D - Not only my first art submission on LiveJournal, but also the first submission for Round 1 of the [livejournal.com profile] quicky_bang! Woohoo! *feels like she won something* XP I had so much fun with my first claim that I am seriously tempted to claim another. Artists don't seem to be claiming fics super fast, which I suppose is partially a result of this being the very first time this challenge has been issued. I'll give others (and myself) a little more time before claiming another, just to be fair.

  • I'm writing fic! - You might not be able to see anything at that link yet, but soon there should be three awesome fics there, all submissions for the first round of "Selfie!Bang." The Selfie!Bang is a little writing challenge between myself, [livejournal.com profile] non_tiembo_mala, and [livejournal.com profile] gluedwithgold in which we all write stories based off the same prompt. This is especially challenging for the three of us because we all are usually so involved in each others' writing (I beta for both, NTM and I collaborate a LOT, and GWG and I have actually co-written fic together) that it's tough to not have each other to rely on during the writing process. *giggles, because, 'process'* But that also makes it exciting, because it will be really interesting to see how we take the same idea and make it into our own unique fics. And it's an extra challenge for me because I'm pretty sure I'm the slowest writer ever, and definitely the least experienced, but I'm pretty pleased with what I have so far (which is, I believe, the most I've ever written by myself so far, too). So *that* is definitely something I need to finish before I think about claiming another fic for the Quicky_Bang, lol. (Due date is April 10th, so keep your eyes peeled if interested! :D)

  • Big Bang 2016 is ON! - I didn't mention it here, but I am officially signed up to claim a fic for the 2016 [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang challenge! *squees* I was reading over some of the teasers today, and it looks like there is a LOT of great stuff to look forward to. I'm so excited that I decided to leap off that particular cliff and sign up!!


With all that said, I've included the link to the Quicky_Bang below in case anyone is interested in checking out the fics waiting to be claimed. From what I've read so far, it's a pretty great group - lots of awesome opportunities for art! I hope to see as many fics claimed as possible by the end of April, and I can't wait to see the art that comes from it! <3
