ART: The Modern Witch’s Guide to Pining, Love & Other Natural Disasters

Challenge: spn_reversebang

Title: The Modern Witch’s Guide to Pining, Love & Other Natural Disasters
Author: d_claiborne
Fandom: Supernatural RPF
Pairing: Jared/Jensen
Summary: Jared Padalecki has a plethora of talents: he knows how to bake a mean blueberry pie, he knows how to run a successful business, and he knows how to befriend his customers. Plus, his piercings and punk hair make him look... well, kind of hot. In a world full of magic that's (allegedly) easy to navigate and handsome men like Jensen, though, he might still come up short.

My ramblings: Eee, this was so much fun to work on! So many awesome little elements for me to play with, I may have gotten too excited and spent too long on little things that no one is even going to notice and neglected some bigger picture stuff, whoops! *flaps hands* Thanks to d-claiborne for being oh so very much fun to chat and work with, for her patience with my sloooow arting and putting up with my babbly babbling, and most importantly for writing this fabulous sugary sweet fic for us all to sink our teeth into! YOU ARE MAGNIFICENT DID I MENTION THAT??

ART: The Seven Warriors

Challenge: spn_j2_bigbang

Title: The Seven Warriors
Author: crimsonepitaph
Fandom: Supernatural RPF
Pairing: Jared/Jensen
Summary: Jensen is a normal guy. Not terribly social, but he's fine going at it alone. At least until the afternoon his boss - 6'4, long hair, determined to save the world one software app at a time - calls him in for a meeting. Suddenly, Jensen finds himself inexplicably connected to an ancient legend - the myth of the Seven Warriors - by a mysteriously appearing tattoo. He struggles to figure out what the tattoo, the nuclear bomb exploding in his chest every time he gets close to his boss, and the motley crew of almost-strangers they gather have in common. Maybe that they all change Jensen's life forever…


My ramblings: Argh, I've been so sick. This is a hot mess, but you know what isn't?? CRIMSON'S FIC. <333 So much image-rich magnificence that I completely failed to get to, but please please don't let that deter you from reading! GO GO GO.

Challenge: spn_reversebang

Title: Music that Would Flow over My Bitter-Tainted, Trembling Lips
Author: whispered_story
Fandom: Supernatural
Pairing: Sam/Dean
Summary: Sam hasn't heard from Dean for weeks—ever since he left for Stanford. Then he finds an envelope with a mixtape in his mailbox. A series of texts, phone calls and a couple more mixtapes follow, and Sam's plan to finally get over Dean comes crashing down.

My ramblings: Eeeek, I was so lucky to get claimed by the fabulous whispered_story! And then even luckier when she decided to do Stanford-era Wincest! I've been sooo attached to pre- and early seasons fic lately--ALL THE NOSTALGIA \o/--and of course she knocked it outta the park. Thanks for writing this awesome story, A, and also your patience with my rambling and taking forever to do pretty much everything. <333

ART: Slipped Inside Your Left Front Pocket

Challenge: spn_j2_bigbang

Title: Slipped Inside Your Left Front Pocket
Author: oobydooby67 / compo67
Fandom: Supernatural RPF
Pairing: Jared/Jensen
Summary: Seven years ago, Jensen met singer, actress, and all-around legend Cher in a Manhattan lounge called Intime. After he played a set, she approached him, impressed, and they hit it off. With her guidance and connections, Jensen started to create a life outside of his job as a 911 dispatcher for the NYPD. He didn’t have to ask clubs to let him play; they started to call him to play for them.

Two years later, Jensen had to leave the city. He had to get out. And out meant back to Texas.

When his cabbie got lost on the way to LaGuardia, he wandered back to Intime. Cher offered him another place to go.
Jensen arrived on a remote island in the South Pacific five years ago and never left.

Life was as steady as the ocean and as slow as a turtle named Diego. Until Cher sent her nephew to the island as part of a creative restart.

Then everything changed--possibly for the better.

My ramblings: Agh, I'm the worst. My health has not been great lately and I did not get to do what I really wanted for this fic. I'm so so sorry for taking forever, C. I can't thank you enough for your patience & understanding. I hope we get a chance to work together again so I can try to do better. <3

Thanks to wendy for putting all this together and granting me that extension.

ART: The More You See (The Less You Know)

Challenge: spn_j2_bigbang

Title: The More You See (The Less You Know)
Author: zubeneschamali
Fandom: Supernatural RPF
Pairing: Jared/Jensen
Summary: Sequel to They're Advertising in the Skies (For People Like Us.) Jared is on the run from the powerful company that claims he's stolen their technology, although they were the ones who stole his life first. Jensen's on the run with him, determined to get to the North where he can do more to fight the corporate system than just poke at it the way he has been for years. First, though, they'll have to make it to the border through hazardous territory by trusting a network of strangers—and learning to trust each other.

My ramblings: Ahhhhh, this is one of those fics where an artist reads it and gets bombarded with a thousand ideas and then despairs that they are not better at their jobs. Why can't I do all the things my brain imagines? WHY.

Thanks so much to Zuben for being patient with me—SO PATIENT—and for gifting all of us with her awesome writing talents! Now everyone make sure to go READ THIS THING. Or else. >:D

Summary: This is not The Bodyguard.

Jensen's a rockstar and Jared's in love with him. Misha's a bodyguard and there's a stalker threatening Jared, but this is not a movie.

My ramblings: Ahhh, it was so good to get back into this arting thing after 6 months of absolutely nothing artsy at all with something like this. I can't thank herminekurotowa for giving me such a fun fic to work with! Rockstar!Jensen and artist!Jared and bodyguard!Misha?! *♥ explodes* I wish I could've done more for you, lovely!

ART: Losing Ground (WIP)

Challenge: spn_j2_xmas

Title: Losing Ground
Fandom: Supernatural/Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Pairing/Characters: Dean & Faith (currently), Buffy & Sam (when complete). No pairing/gen.
Summary: The Winchesters have lost some ground with the monster they're hunting. Lucky for them, Buffy and Faith are also on the case.

My ramblings: Oh, man, gotaprettymouth, I'm going to have to start this thing off with about a thousand apologies. I'm sorry you got stuck with me, I'm so sorry for the lateness of this, and I am so, so, EPICALLY SORRY for the horribly incomplete state that it's in right now. D: This is just a couple snippets from a larger image, but I wanted to post something for you so you didn't have to start the new year off with no gift. I think I got a little too ambitious for my own good, what with how RL likes to trip me up at every opportunity and how slow I tend to be, but I was EXCITED for this one, darn it!

I went with your "knight in shining armor" and "Buffy crossover" likes. I also stalked your journal for a minute and saw you had a thing for Faith. :D BtVS was my intro to the wonderful world of fandom, and crossovers are one of my faaavorite things, so I was really eager to do something for that.

I'm sorry again it's not really done yet. I'm hoping to have the whole thing finished by the end of the week. In the meantime, I hope the holidays have been fantastic to you!

Thanks X a billion to the mods for the extension, and for running this thing.

ART: Awakening

Challenge: j2_reversebang

Title: Awakening
Author: blackrabbit42 & amberdreams
Fandom: Supernatural RPF
Pairing: Jared/Jensen
Summary: Jensen's job as Captain of Empress Danneel's Imperial Guard is a privileged position, if a little dull compared to being one of Overlord Misha's Minions. Jensen kind of likes dull, but his life is about to get a whole lot more interesting with the arrival of a new recruit, Ensign Padalecki.

My ramblings: Eeeee, it's heeeeere! I haven't gotten to read the finished version yet because I was busy running around like a crazy thing at the eleventh hour (what else is new), but if the draft was anything to go by, you guys don't wanna miss this! I had so much fun working on this, you have no idea. There were a thousand and one little medieval-type elements I wanted to cram into everything--choosing only a couple was hard. I need to do more fantasy/fairytale things!

My authors deserve a billion pounds of gratitude for dealing with me and my horrible last-minute ways; thank you both so so so much! ♥ Thanks also to the mod for granting us an extension, and giving us all another awesome challenge to play in. <333

ART: Coal And Ice

Challenge: spn_reversebang

Title: Coal And Ice
Author: daydreamdestiel
Fandom: Supernatural RPF
Pairing: Jared/Jensen, Jensen/Misha, Jared/Jensen/Misha
Summary: University didn't start with a bang for Jensen Ackles. It didn't start with fanfare and excitement and it didn't start with the one thing in the world he actually wanted: Jared Padalecki.

What it started with was a broken heart and boatload of depression. Without the one person he'd always been able to count on because Jared had gone to school in California and left him behind.

Convinced he'd never recover, Jensen barely made it through most days until a chance encounter at the campus bookstore led him to someone who helped him come gradually back to life. Misha was Jensen's second chance at happiness.

Until a twist of fate brought his first chance back into his life and forced Jensen to realize that he'd never really gotten over Jared. Not all the way. And he might never.

My ramblings: So, daydreamdestiel has gotta be the speediest speedster I have ever worked with, and all I can say for my slow-poke self is I'm sorry you got stuck with me, bud. XP I was so excited when I got the outline for this, it was like all of my dreams were coming true, and she did not disappoint on the delivery. You guuuuuys! She gave me lots of beautiful pining and h/c and A THREESOME!! What more could a girl ask for?? Thank you so much for putting up with me, A, for all your enthusiasm and encouragement, and for being such a superstar. <333

Thanks also to the mods, as always, for putting this whole thing together for all of us. You guys rock!

Everyone go read the J2M amazingness now, please & thank you! :D
