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. ♥

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! ♥

I love you all so much!

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

Word Count: ~ 16.5K Full Version on AO3

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.

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

Title: Playlist for Bring Me a Dream
Author: [livejournal.com profile] alycat (also on AO3)
Medium: YouTube (??? lol)

Notes: Inspired by the fic Bring Me a Dream by [livejournal.com profile] alycat, for which I created art (check that out here) as part of Round 1 of the [livejournal.com profile] quicky_bang challenge.

So! If you've already seen my art post for [livejournal.com profile] alycat's fic Bring Me a Dream, you know that I kind of had a ridiculous amount of fun creating art for this challenge. Given that the story is titled after the song Mr. Sandman (and also taking into account the fact that I am a very musically inclined person and everything reminds me of a song (and vice versa)), it's not surprising that I started associating music with this fic. One song led to another...and soon I had a list of seven songs put together and I just said to myself, "Screw it. I'm making a playlist, too." So, without further ado!

Hellooooo LiveJournal! So, I've done a thing! Well...I'm working on doing a thing. Have you heard of this, this [livejournal.com profile] quicky_bang? Look, look at Dean's pretty naked back...and then click the link and check it out.

[livejournal.com profile] quicky_bang
Round 1: submit short stories until April 30th; create art before May 31st

*drools at the pretty*

*shakes herself out of it*

ANYhoo, I'm super excited about this for a lot of reasons. Probably the number one reason is that I've claimed a fic!, and I'm going to make some art!!! :D I'm lucky enough to get to draw something up for [livejournal.com profile] alycat's sexy J2 story inspired by the SPN episode "Just My Imagination". You can (and should!) check it out here ("Bring Me a Dream" - Jared is a glittery Zanna and it's awesome! :D).

Another reason I'm excited is that I went and submitted one of my own fics (see?) << That's just the prompt, but there's a link to the fic(s) there. I also recently cross-posted them here on LJ. It doesn't seem like many (any?) other fics are claimed yet, and I don't really expect much, but it'd be pretty damn cool if someone wanted to make art for one/both/either of my fics.

The final reason I'm excited (besides the inherent coolness of the collaboration that is a natural part of these sort of things) is because, all of the fics that are being submitted for art-claims, well, it's a built-in rec list! I've read a few already, and all of them have been great. If I get done with this first art claim fast enough, I'd be strongly tempted to claim another. Just sayin' ;) I'm really looking forward to seeing what all comes from this first round of the Quicky!Bang ^_^

I love this idea. Like, a lot. It sounds right up my alley, in fact. I don't know if LJ notifies when you're tagged in a post, but [livejournal.com profile] non_tiembo_mala and [livejournal.com profile] gluedwithgold should definitely check this out. I'm considering offering one of my fics up for "Seeking Art", and I'm *definitely* thinking of attempting to create art for someone else's fic. What an awesome opportunity to collaborate and be creative. <3

As I've mentioned, I do occasionally write fic (so far all SPN/SPN RPF). As I move forward with that, I'd like to start cross-posting my fics here. I already have several up on my AO3, but I learn best by doing, so I'm going to post them here too. That's the goal, at least. I'd appreciate any feedback on my fic-posting 'style' (and I'll gladly accept any tips/suggestions/advice to make it better), and, of course, I'd love to hear your thoughts on the story itself. This first one is also the first fic I ever wrote for SPN. I hope you enjoy it! Thank you for reading! <3

My first encounter with [livejournal.com profile] akintay was her fic "I Leave My Heart in the Dust Where You Walk", posted here on LJ. It was also one of the very first J2 fics I'd read, and it remains one of my very favorites to this day. I was *so* ecstatic when I found her on AO3 too (since, as a reader, that format was much more user-friendly feeling to me) - especially since it meant I now had so many more of her fics to discover (because, again, I did not understand LJ AT ALL, lol). And now, here I am, getting the absolute privilege to occasionally beta for her. This fic is the most recent one I had the pleasure of editing, and you all really should check it out. Also with some lovely artwork by [livejournal.com profile] vilabelle :)

*yells out into the terrifying abyss* "HELLO, LIVE JOURNAL!"

I have no barely any idea how to act in here, so please bear with me. I probably won't be very active, because will probably be more active than I'd thought; LJ has been pretty damn welcoming so far :) I'm pretty happy with the set-up I've got going between twitter and AO3, but I kind of really wanted to try my hand at submitting some art for a Big Bang, so I had to make my account official in order to do that. I think that's the first logical step at least...

So anyway, here I am. All my profile info is straight from twitter (because it seemed like the most comfortable way to dip my toes into the big, scary LJ, by logging in from that account), so take it for what you will (I added a bit; guess I can step out of my twitter shell after all ;)). To update it a bit [more]: I love Supernatural; I am a fairly recent fan (I started watching on Netflix a few months before season 10 first aired), but I am neck-deep in fandom now and I love that, too.

As I mentioned, I'm also on AO3. Mainly, I spend my time there reading, but I also beta for a few friends (mainly non_tiembo_mala, gluedwithgold, and sometimes whispered_story - all amazing authors; definitely check them out if you don't already know them) and occasionally post fic of my own.

I also like to draw/paint/sketch/whatever, but I rarely do in the interest of doing those other things. But I like to take opportunities when I can to flex those skills, try to keep them from getting too rusty. (For an example, check out the drawing I did for non_tiembo_mala's "Upon A Painted Ocean", here. You should also definitely read the story, because it's SO GOOD.) Thus, my motivation for joining, like, officially joining, LJ - to (I hope, if all goes well) participate as an artist contributor in the 2016 Big Bang. I'm going to go sign up now, so wish me luck!! (I'm gonna need it!)

Here's to you, Live Journal. Please be gentle with me - I'm new. ;)

Amanda aka @Dancing_Adrift
