Title: Artwork for Breaking the Ice
Author: ashtraythief
Artist: dancing_adrift (yup, that’s me!)
Pairing: Jared/Jensen
Rating: PG-13 (for art; fic is NC-17)
Medium: Corel Painter Essentials 5, blood sweat & tears
Artist's Notes: Created as part of the 2017 SPN_J2_BigBang challenge. (My 2nd year!)



Summary: Jared has been harboring a crush on Jensen, the prince from the far north, ever since he was fourteen, so when his parents announce that they’ve chosen Jensen as his husband, Jared couldn’t be happier. But when Jensen arrives in Scayen, Jared realizes that there’s more to him than meets the eye — and even more that Jensen doesn’t want Jared to see. But it shouldn’t take much more than Jared’s sunny charm to melt Jensen’s icy facade, right? Except it isn’t so easy dealing with cultural differences and misunderstandings; sometimes it takes a lot of food, some good friends’ advice, a little kitten, and even a bit of magic to overcome a rocky start.

READ IT NOW ON AO3: BREAKING THE ICE

I know y’all are here to see some art - there’s A LOT below the cut, and you can see it all as you’re reading the fic, too, (which you should do anyway) - but I really need to thank some people first, because this wouldn’t have happened without them.

Jen (gluedwithgold) - I literally would not have been able to do this if not for you. You know all that you did, and I am eternally grateful. I love you!! And many thanks also to our Sammie (non_tiembo_mala) for being there every step of the way. I love you too!

ASH (ashtraythief) - omg, my amazing author. I’ve loved your fics for as long as I’ve known them, and now I got this INCREDIBLE opportunity to collaborate with you… fucking dream come true. We’ve talked about this. If you don’t know how much I love and admire you by now, then clearly I haven’t been irl-schmoopy enough ;) Would love to work with you again, absolutely any time, my dear. You kick ass :)

Anna (whispered_story) - my amazing author from last year and my friend and cheerleader ever since. Thank you, meine Schoene, for your everlasting enthusiasm and encouragement. Ich liebe dich :)

And, as ever, thank you to Wendy for running this challenge (so glad you do what you do!!), and thank you to all my fandom friends for the continued love and support.

ALRIGHT, LET’S SEE THE ART!!! :D

So, I can't believe I'm saying this, but I am DONE creating art for this year's Big Bang. ONE DAY before posting! I started and finished TWO pieces today, and I'm pretty damn psyched about it, considering how god-awful the last two days had been for arting :-/

ANYhoo, I figured I ought to do some sort of test post before I started attempting to put together my art masterpost (which is likely to be a MONSTER, ftr). So, assuming I do this correctly, please enjoy whatever random old art I put below the cut.

Dreamwidth does have cuts, right???

I am sitting here laughing at myself; I was so excited to make the move from LJ to DW after LJ changed its Terms of Service, and I saw how welcoming DW was... and then I've been sooooo absent. To be fair, I haven't posted anything on LJ either, just like I've said I wasn't going to. HOWEVER, since not every LJ user migrated to DW, I have still had some interacting there. Mainly, that means doing stuff for the upcoming SPN_J2_Big_Bang!

This is my second year participating in this Big Bang as an artist. Last year I collaborated with my good friend Anna (akintay/whispered_story) on the first part of her fantastic "The Dizzy Heights" series. This year, I'm super psyched to be working with the incredible ashtraythief, a longtime favorite author and now an awesome partner.

When I'm not working on art for BB (two pieces done so far, and plenty to go before our July 5th posting date!) or beta-ing fic for friends, I've decided that I want to learn German, so I've been working on that. Duolingo has been an amazing teacher/app. I'm really excited about how well it's been going! (Part of my reason for wanting to learn this particular language? Both the authors I mentioned above are German, and I talk to them both nearly every day; it only makes sense that I should know at least some of their language when they're so fluent in mine, right? lol)

Anyhoo, that's just a little update from me. I look forward to sharing in July with you all the art that I'll have made to go with Ash's fantastic J2 story. I can't wait for you guys to experience it too! Hope y'all are having an awesome week. :-*

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.
