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, non_tiembo_mala, and 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.

So, I just got this fancy box of colored pencils (the case doubles as a stand! Fancy!), as well as the stickers, photo, and cards in the background from the two lovely ladies in said photo, non_tiembo_mala and gluedwithgold. These are my main partners in fandom shenanigans (usually writing), and they are far too sweet to me. <3 <3 <3 Anyhoo, aside from the happiness of getting such an awesome package in the mail, I am pretty psyched to use colored pencils that aren't Roseart :shudders: or Crayola. I'm even thinking that their inaugural use will be for the next quicky_bang prompt I claim (which I'm hoping to do sometime next week!). Until that time, it's a weekend, by myself, during which I will hopefully be kicking ass and finishing writing my story for our first Selfie!Bang challenge. *squee!!* Hope y'all have fantastic weekends! <3
- 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 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, non_tiembo_mala, and 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 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
