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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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

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

Fic: SLUG, or The Day Wyatt Hatfield Gave Up Hunting, Probably
Author: quickreaver
Fandom: Supernatural
Pairing: none/gen
Summary: When Wyatt Hatfield called Hunter Central for support, he didn't expect who showed up. THE Sam Winchester. And things just got weirder from there.

My ramblings: I AM NOT WORTHY BUT I DID IT ANYWAY. And, once again, not anywhere close to on time. I think the title/subject of this fic was appropriate for me, being the slowest slug ever and all, but, like. BAMF-y POWERS!SAM ON A MOTORCYCLE?! *points accusingly at fic* I'm sorry, I refuse to accept the blame for this.

Massive gratitude to quickreaver for being the chillest, most patient & encouraging person on the planet, for offering up such a fun and visually inspiring story--this Sam sings to my soul, like, A LOT; did I mention that??--and for allowing me to try to do it any kind of justice. <333

Thanks also to beelikej for running this challenge and letting me play, even though I suck at being fast; why must you tempt me so?

Title: Muse FM
Author: cleflink
Fandom: Supernatural RPF
Pairing: Jared/Jensen
Summary: Jared's job is boring, boring, boring. As a night security guard, he protects empty buildings by sitting on his ass and watching the security cameras while listening to a lot of talk radio. Not exactly the life he dreamed of for himself but hey, it's a living.

When he gets chosen for a new job babysitting the front desk at Muse FM radio station, Jared's mostly expecting more of the same. He's not expecting Jensen, the mysterious, hoodie-wearing host of Muse FM's overnight show, to catch his interest quite so thoroughly, or to be quite so difficult to figure out. He's not expecting so many unanswered questions about what, exactly, he's supposed to be protecting Jensen from. He's also not expecting to care so much about either of those things.

Oh, and he's definitely not expecting the monsters, either.

My ramblings: Endless gratitude to cleflink for being the most amazing, creative, inspiring, patient person on the planet. ♥ *kidnaps her* I was so so so so excited to work on this fic, but of course RL didn't just get busy, it blew the hell up. So, this art post is not done. I refuse to be done because I haven't finished VERY IMPORTANT THINGS yet. There's no law that says I can't keep giving her art forever -- I checked.

Anyway, while I work on being less of a failure, make sure to check out the fic. I don't think anyone needs me to tell them cleflink is a genius, but. CLEFLINK IS A GENIUS.

Read the thing!

Fandom: Supernatural RPF
Pairing: J2
Summary: Big things are coming soon to The Wayward Heart Band; then lead singer and guitarist Jensen discovers a box of abandoned kittens, and his personal future starts to look just as bright as his professional one.

My ramblings: First, thanks to the mods for running the best challenge ever. <333 Second and third and last, soooo much love to non_tiembo _mala for the all the rockin' J2-ness and KITTY CATSSS and being so fun to talk to and, most of all, for her patience. I'm probably more disappointed in myself for this than all the other times I didn't do enough/better, because I was so. freaking. excited. about the kitteny rock-n-roll visuals, and n_t_m was insanely cool to work with and totally chill about my madness—it shoulda coulda woulda been the most beautiful thing. *shakes fist at life and the passage of time and stuff*

Just. Please go read the adorable and sexy fic non_tiembo_mala wrote because she is perfect at her job. SHOO!

Ack, I am the worst at fandoming. I seem to recall a time when I could balance work and play so effortlessly and get so much shit done in a single day? How did I do it, it's a mystery.

Once again, family and health issues have sucked up all my time and energy. I don't want to get into details because I think the world is plenty depressing enough as it is right now, but, man, it feels like every time something comes up, other things think they have permission to start sucking too. >:C Ugh, LIFE. I don't like this game, I call do-over! *shoves game board off the table* *throws controller against the wall* *tries turning it off and then on again*

Anyway, I'm so so terribly behind in replying to comments (BUT PLEASE KNOW THAT I CHERISH THEM ALL, THEY ARE MY SUNSHINE WHEN SKIES ARE GRAY) and commenting on fic, art, and all that beautiful stuff. So I need to get on that.

Speaking of: DID EVERYONE SEE THE SAM/DEAN/DANNEEL MAGNIFICENCE THAT SALTANDBYRNE GAVE ME FOR XMAS??? It is hot and glorious and everything! Go looooook!

I managed to get a few things done myself for SPNJ2XMAS and J2 RBB. If you haven't read Universe Unbound by firesign10, or An Eye for the Future by dugindeep, you're missing out! Go fix that, would you? In the meantime, I'mma be over here conspiring with the delightful non_tiembo_mala for SPN RBB. *smooches everyone in this bar*

Also, I'm paying it forward. You get things, I get happy distractions, win/win. Don't you wanna?

Hello, hello, still kicking, I have updates and 'splaining to do, but for noooow. Saw this going around a little bit ago and I'm super late but I wanna do it anyway! Because FUN: we all need some.

Let's start 2017 off in a positive way with a Pay It Forward meme. The first 6 people to comment will receive a surprise from me at some point in 2017 — anything from a book, something home-grown or made, a postcard, absolutely any surprise! It will happen when the mood comes over me and I find something that I believe would suit you and make you happy.

If you can, post this in your own journal and pay it forward. Let's do more kind and loving things for each other in 2017, without any reason other than to make each other smile and show that we think of each other.

If you're up for anything, please comment below and then PM me your contact info. Comments are NOT screened. If you'd rather receive something "virtual", then let me know in a comment.

Title: All the Way Home I'll Be Warm
Fandom: Supernatural
Pairing: Sam/Dean
Summary: After a hunt, and after warming up the old fashioned way, Dean is totally keeping watch right now, not falling asleep. Being stranded in a snowstorm in the middle of nowhere might be a bigger issue if Sam didn't run so hot.

My ramblings: Ahhhh, keep_waking_up, you deserve so much better than me. /o\ I can't apologize enough for how late this is! I mainly went with your prompt, "The backseat of a car," but I squeezed bits & pieces of other prompts in there as best I could. I hope you like it, and that your holidays are as wonderful as can be.

A million thank youuuus to the mods for the extension and patience. Also to amberdreams and lady_simoriah for the brainstorming help. The end result strayed pretty far from what we talked about but it was you two wonderful ladies who kickstarted my brain into storming all over the map when I was unsure of myself.

Fic: An Eye for the Future
Author: dugindeep
Fandom: Supernatural RPF
Pairing: J2
Summary: Jensen has spent the last decade living with visions of the future. He's saved the neighbor's kid falling off a balcony, an old purple-haired lady walking into a car accident, and a landscaper from losing a limb from a chainsaw. He's so accustomed to it that it's just a nuisance at this point.

What's he's not used to are his newest visions starring international tech guru Jared Padalecki. And he's certainly not used to being shot at, cooped up in a cabin alone with the guy, or returning to a forgotten past that may bring him love in the future. All three happen over the course of one week that drudges up the truth behind his visions and offers a second chance to save Jared.

My ramblings: WHAT CAN I SAY ABOUT THE PINCH-HITTING SUPERHERO THAT IS DUGINDEEP? ♥♥♥ *flails around dangerously* I can't thank her enough for not only working so hard and writing so much under a tighter deadline, but for spoiling me absolutely rotten with this fic. FAMOUS GENIUS JARED + GRUMPY PSYCHIC JENSEN! \o/ <33333! JEN!SEN! WITH! A! CANE! *dies* If fandom keeps spoiling me like this, I'mma be impossible. More impossible than I already am, I mean. I wish I wish I wish I'd been able to manage more in addition to the original prompt than slapping together a bunch of shapes and gradients in Inkscape. *kicks self lots and lots*

Thanks to the mod for acting so quickly on saving me from the partner-less abyss, and for running this thing. All the reversebangs \o/!

Oh, and hey, did I mention this fic is everything???

Fandom: Supernatural RPF
Pairing: J2
Summary: Jared loves being a dessert chef even if catering wedding showers doesn't do much for his love life. Of course, this is the first time he's met a maid of honour who isn't a girl.

My ramblings: What was I even doing signing up for Quicky Bang??? I am not quick. But I saw this story up for grabs and couldn't resist. COULD NOT DO IT. Not only because of who it was by, and you just know that's gonna be good, but because it was adorable and sticky sweet and I knew working on it would make me happy when skies were gray. And it did! It also made me hungry, oh man. So many sweets were consumed in the making of this art set & I regret nothing.

Fic: I Don't Care If I Never Get Back
Author: deirdre_c
Fandom: Supernatural RPF
Pairing: J2
Summary: When a stranger barges into Jensen’s apartment and insists he must take Jensen to a major league baseball game, Jensen’s first, second, and third impulses are to kick the guy out on his ass. But if he can just get past that third, Jensen may find he can make it home.

A magical baseball love story, based on the 1989 movie A Field of Dreams.

My ramblings: I LOVED WORKING ON THIS SO MUCH. Maybe too much, since I went through 3 different versions of cover concepts before finally being like OKAY. And then I ran out of time to do anything else. /o\ Though I'm not big on sports of any kind, Field of Dreams was one of my dad's favorite movies and I have such nostalgia over it--I'm sure plenty of ppl are right there with me. Add working with Dei to the mix, with her delightfully delicious writing, and I think I kinda tripped all over myself in my excitement. She knocked this fic so far out of the park, y'all! GO SEE.

Fic: Conversations with the Dead
Author: lennelle
Fandom: Supernatural
Pairing: None/gen
Summary: Sometimes, a parent might tuck in their child at night and find an empty bed in the morning.

In 1996, Sam Winchester vanished in an empty room. He reappeared two months later with missing hair, bruises and vacant eyes.

By 2000, Dean Winchester is a hunter in his own right. He travels to Minnesota where his brother now lives with Pastor Jim, a long-time friend of their father's. The thing is, John Winchester recently went into the house that ruined his youngest son and he never came back out. Thing is, Sam is the only person who knows what's in the house. Thing is, Sam Winchester hasn't spoken in four years.

My ramblings: So many thanks to my author, who has been super lovely to work with. She probably deserves a parade after getting stuck with flaky old me for her first ever challenge. *throws a marching band at her* As usual, there was supposed to be more art to go with the creepy deliciousness that is this fic. BUT ALAS. Time and I do not get along. The story will make up for my shortcomings, tho, so definitely go check that out.
