Title: Artwork for Good Porches Make Good Neighbors
Author: zubeneschamali / zubenfic
Artist: dancing_adrift (yup, that’s me!)
Pairing: Jared/Jensen
Rating: PG (for art; fic is NC-17)
Medium: Corel Painter Essentials 5, pens/old Sharpie & scratch paper

Artist's Notes: This came about thanks to my Twitter TL being filled with awesome people. Zuben often lets us know when it's an interesting "National [Holi]day", and August 8th was "National Sneak Some Zucchini Onto Your Neighbor's Porch Day". That's just begging to have fic written about it, right? Thanks to a sort of self-feeding loop, there's now fic AND art. I'll regal you with more of the tale below, but first, you should really go read the fic!



Summary: Jensen's getting more and more aggravated at his neighbor. Can't the guy take a hint? Jensen simply doesn’t need any of the man's zucchini.

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.

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, there's been a lot of chatter lately about Disney's new production of Beauty and the Beast coming out soon (?). You know, the non-animated one with Emma Watson and that dude who was in the Hobbit, and Ian McKellan. That one.

There's been some fuss about the fact that the movie is going to include a gay character. *gasp!* Some people are ecstatic, others aren't super thrilled about the choices made, and some *ahem*bigots*ahem* are outright boycotting the movie. ANYhoo. I'm pretty sure every one of my followers on here at least have nothing against homosexual relationships, lol.

To get back to my point - Beauty and the Beast is my favorite [animated, classic] Disney movie. I'm not really sure how I feel about them 'remaking' it, but all the hubbub has been reminding me that there are some most excellent SPN/SPN RPF fics that have drawn inspiration from this great movie. I've listed the ones I know below. I highly recommend them all, so you should definitely read them, and show the authors (and one artist!) some love. And if you've got any similar recommendations, I'd love to hear of them!

Try the grey stuff, it's delicious!

Er, I mean, I hope you enjoy the recs! ♥

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.

Rating: G (for art; fic is NC-17)

Artist's Note: Created as part of the 2016 [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang challenge.

One of the aspects of this story that appealed to me right away was the Harry Potter vibes I got from the 'Artist's Summary' when it came time for artists to claim fic. A baby deposited on a doorstep to be cared for by an adoptive family? A child that grows up only to have a stranger reveal that they aren't quite as normal as they'd always thought? Yeah, that says HP to me, lol. And as soon as I read the first line of the fic - "On July 31st, in the early hours of the morning, a willow basket is placed on the porch of the Padaleckis' home." - and the date just *happened* to be Harry's birthday, I couldn't help but take inspiration from one of my favorite book series.

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.

If "reference used" is code for "I used an existing image and traced over it because my freehand wouldn't do the pretty justice," then... reference used. XP

Artist Notes: For Round 1 of [livejournal.com profile] quicky_bang. I had so so so much fun with this - my first art challenge!

HUGE THANKS TO:
Firstly, to [livejournal.com profile] alycat for writing such a sweet, hot fic that also had a lot of really awesome visual elements to it. (Hello, glittery Zanna!Jared?? In *leather*?? Who wouldn't love the chance to work with that??) Also, for your enthusiasm towards the sneak-peaks of the art I gave you, and for the constructive input (skinny-fied Jensen = size kink win!). It seriously means a lot that you were so awesome about me making art for your fic, especially since this is essentially my first time, and I don't really have the most sophisticated art programs to work with on my computer, lol. ((hugs)) You rock. I had so much fun making this for you <3

Secondly, to my creative team - my sounding board(s), my support system, and my dear friends - [livejournal.com profile] gluedwithgold and [livejournal.com profile] non_tiembo_mala for being there for me every step of the way. As always, your advice, ideas, and support are invaluable to me and absolutely appreciated. Love you ladies :)

And finally, to [livejournal.com profile] beelikej for setting up such an awesome challenge!! I'm so so so *psyched* that I could participate (and possibly be the first claim to post art???). Thank you for making it so easy! Your enthusiasm and encouragement have been so great! Keep up the awesome work! I'm definitely looking forward to future challenges :)

Okay. NOW, the moment you've all been waiting for (if you haven't read the fic yet, DO THAT FIRST) -

IT'S TIME FOR THE ART! :D )
