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.

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! ♥

...[livejournal.com profile] non_tiembo_mala, among much else, for staying up far too late with me, holding my hand until the very last sentence. Hope you got a good night's sleep! ♥
...[livejournal.com profile] gluedwithgold for the ongoing beta and for never being afraid to give the tough criticisms. I don't always like it, and I don't always listen, but I always appreciate you and your input ♥
...[livejournal.com profile] akintay for the cheerleading, and for helping pick me up when I wanted to fall apart. I hope you enjoy the ending ♥

...to the mods of [livejournal.com profile] spn_cinema for putting together such a fun challenge, and for enabling my procrastinating ways. I hope this is a worthy addition to your collection of fics!

...and last but not least, to readers (and fellow writers) like you! Some of you went out of your way to encourage me here, on twitter, and elsewhere during this process, and I appreciate it probably more than you may know. THANK YOU! ♥

Played a little more with my new art tablet tonight. This piece is based off the image that is currently serving as inspiration for a fanfic that [livejournal.com profile] gluedwithgold is writing (that I CANNOT WAIT for her to finish - goth!Jared and punk!Jensen college AU! *squee!!!*). I'm still relying on tracing to help me get the lines of Jensen's pretty face "right," but I had fun playing with colors and blending tools and whatnot myself. One of these days I'll finally get around to working on my second piece for the [livejournal.com profile] quicky_bang... but until then, I'm sure I'll keep having fun practicing ;) Enjoy! :)

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.

Title: Artwork for Bring Me a Dream
Author: [livejournal.com profile] alycat (also on AO3)
Pairing: Jared/Jensen
Rating: G
Medium: GIMP 2 (aka "Paint, with layers!" :D), with a little help from Picasa 3 for cropping and framing.
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!

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) -
