Fic illustrations question
*Jared*
bt_kady
I'm working on a piece of artwork that I think would be a good illustration for a young hooker!Jensen and older client!Jared fic. Do any of you know of one that doesn't have art to go with it? Barring that, would any of you authors want to write a fic with that trope, and let me illustrate it for you? It would have been for good for the Reversebang but I only created it today, so I'm too late for it.

Here's what I have so far...

TeenHookerJensenOlderJared

If you guys have any ideas or suggestions, I'd love to hear them. I know I've read fics with this trope, but I can't recall any specifics.

Fandom help for an SPN family member (Cillab42)

bt_kady
cillab42 has posted about her situation on her LJ. You can help raise funds for her by making a direct donation here, participating in the auction, and/or spreading the word among your friends.

The auction started yesterday, November 20, and will run until November 29 (next Saturday). The last date for the auction is not the date by which you need to deliver your work. It's just the last date for people to bid on offers. You can talk to your winner and decide on the details/due date.

Auction page is here.

I've offered artwork, so if you'd like something from me, go take a look at the auction page. Please join us in helping a fellow SPNer.

Silly question, but...
Dean- Awkward
bt_kady
Does anyone know/has Jensen said how he got that scar on his chin? Only thing I've seen is someone asked him and he joked back, "What scar?" I figure I've probably missed a real answer from him.

Anyone? Buehler?

Question... (edited)
Dean- Awkward
bt_kady
If you came upon personal information about Jared, Jensen and/or their families, what would you do with it? Would it depend on what the information was? What is the dividing line for you, on what's sharable and what isn't?

If you decided to share, how widely would you share? Just one person, a few trusted people, or would you share widely online in the fandom?

You're probably wondering why I'm asking. If you want to know, PM me.


EDIT: This post is pretty much moot at this point. I got on LJ this morning and saw where a photo of Jensen's new house was posted, and as it came from the realtor's site, the address was listed, and it hadn't been marked out. This is what my questions referred to, in a way. The home addresses of the guys (as well as their parents and other family members) are all public record and can be found if you look. Having said that, why post the info online? Don't they deserve their privacy? It's one thing to have the information, but to broadcast it?

Jensen and Danni moving to Austin? (edited)
Jensen 09
bt_kady
I was told that Jensen and Danni are moving to Austin. Does anyone have more information/photos on this? I've tried Googling for it but my Google-fu isn't working today.

Edit: I found the photos. Someone did, as Kat said, post them on Tumblr. Gorgeous house and property, I have to say!

The Jester’s Mask

The stage is bare
The spotlight is dim
The laughter is silenced
How we will miss him

Behind the mask
Tears we did not see
Darkness we never knew
Now we pray you are free

For Robin

A bright light and brilliant talent has gone out for us with the death of Robin Williams. I am devastated by the loss, and I hope and pray that all the love the world felt for him will be a comfort for his family and all those who knew and loved him.

We don't know what he was going through to make him feel suicide was his only option, but I hope that he's at peace now.

No one can blame me for wanting to create something with the new photoshoot Jensen did for the Chinese Harper's Bazaar. Comments?

Posing a fanfic question
Bang head
bt_kady
I'm strictly in the SPN/J2 fandom so my question is for that. Does anyone actually read het fic, or is gen fic and slash all anyone wants? I ask because I'm close to finishing writing a teen Sam/OFC fic, and I wonder if I'd be wasting my time posting it here or at AO3 when it's complete. I've been posting it a chapter at a time at ff.net, but I know that site is basically passe these days, which is why I don't get much response there.

Do I even bother? Will any of you be interested in reading it?

Summary: Sam is shy, horny, and still a virgin. He's also smitten with a girl from school. Can he find the courage to make her his, and get rid of his cursed virgin status? Set circa 2000. Sam is aged 16/17. Sam/OFC, Dean, mention of John. NC17 for het teen sex.

Be honest with me, gang. I can take it.

Guys...what's wrong with this fandom?
season8gagreel-hug
bt_kady
I don't know why it has to happen to some of our best and brightest, but euclase has been bullied so much she's taken down all her artworks and deleted her accounts here, at Tumblr and at Deviantart. Bullies strike again. I don't know all the details, but it's enough to know that she's felt the need to leave. If you know her personally and have contact with her, please tell her she's got support, and not just other fans. I've seen Twitter posts from Kim Rhodes, Orlando Jones and Sebastian Roche who are also giving her support, and in fact, Kim wants to get in touch with her. If you can help them connect, please do so.

There's too many assholes in fandom who aren't content unless they are vomiting hate and wank, and God...it needs to STOP! Those of us who appreciate our fandom artists and all others who find themselves on the receiving end of bullies need to step up and do what we can to show them the love and support they need. I mean, if you can't say something nice, then just STFU and go away. We don't need that kind of evil lurking.

Let's support her, ok? As we're posting at Twitter, #WeSupportEuclase.

ETA: Note from Euclase...and this will end my part of the discussion.

Everyone, I am fine. I just needed a break. I regret having not come online sooner—before this all got entirely out hand.

I can’t believe the support you all have given me, but please don’t make assumptions without checking the facts: I didn’t delete anything on Tumblr or on Deviantart. My art is definitely still there, just hidden for now. I was not bullied off of the internet, only “tired of being bullied” in general. It’s something I’m used to but something I’m not always equipped to deal with, and occasionally I need a break. Hence the blankout.

I sincerely apologize for any drama this has caused. I never meant it to skyrocket like this. I ask you to please stop spamming my name to celebrities on Twitter, please stop blaming each other, and please don’t make hasty judgments. Fandom is full of so many wonderful people, and I am staggered by your kindness and humbled that I could help you all find a voice in a fight against bullying (and to support your fellow artists!), but I would appreciate it very much if you could do your best not to make things worse when your intentions are so good. I will see you soon.

Thank you again.

I fell in love with a new manip by travellerintime and showed it to my bestie platinumrosel, and between the three of us, I came up with this... (manip by Tess, ficlet by Kim and art by me.)

7 Days of Self Promo

The Days:
1. Something old
2. Something new
3. Something you made for someone else
4. Something you made just for yourself
5. Something for a major fandom/pairing/character

6. Something for a minor fandom/pairing/character
7. Something you're just really proud of


Rather than art this time, here's a link on one of my fics that I wrote myself, instead of doing it with my writing partner, platinumrosel. It took me a long time to get it written, but I'm pretty proud of it.

Supernatural fandom, Sam and Dean gen fic, from Sam's POV.

Hidden Blessings - A decision Sam made while at Stanford comes back to change his life. Dean's vow, "We take care of our own" takes new meaning for Sam. AU.

If you haven't read it yet, I'd love for you to do so and let me know what you think. Kudos are wonderful, but comments are even better!

Since I work all day tomorrow, I'll double post.

1. Something old
2. Something new
3. Something you made for someone else
4. Something you made just for yourself
5. Something for a major fandom/pairing/character

6. Something for a minor fandom/pairing/character
7. Something you're just really proud of


I wish I had something for this one. Anything I might have added would have been from a previous fandom I was in (Highlander) but that was before I was online. It was also before I was doing my graphic arts, and the fics I wrote were not put online after, and they also weren't nearly as good as I can do now. That was back in my "Mary Sue" days, and I'm not comfortable sharing them.

I'm gonna wrap this up (I'm cheating, I know) by giving my last example.

1. Something old
2. Something new
3. Something you made for someone else
4. Something you made just for yourself
5. Something for a major fandom/pairing/character

7. Something you're just really proud of


I know I've spoken of creations I'm proud of, but I wanted to show these examples. I'll explain each one as I go.

J2 Across Time-art

This one is obviously a Jensen manip. I am hoping to get a fic written for me (obsidianromance has promised me one!)
I created this earlier on in my "swapping heads" manip making, and I'm pleased with how well it turned out.

This is another manip I made hoping for a fic to come out of it, but I haven't been successful yet. The banner I made using it has been misplaced, but here's my attempt at creating Jared as a Confederate soldier

Jared-ConfedSoldier

Thanks for reading, gang!

Taking a break...
Dean-bullshit
bt_kady
I'm not a happy girl right now. I'm gonna take a break from doing fanart for fanfic writers (except for my darling obsidianromance) for a while. I'm not feeling appreciated, and I need to cool off before I resume doing my art (for free, mind you) on a regular basis.

All I'll say is this: doing fanart (no matter what kind - photo blends/manips or traditional) is every bit as worthy of credit as the fanfic it is created for. To be made to feel that my artist's credit is of lesser importance than the author's is not gonna fly with me. If that's how the author feels, then I'm not the artist for them. There are plenty of others in this fandom who can be asked.

I do my art for free because I love doing it, I love helping fellow fans of SPN, and the practice is good for me. Now, if someone wants to actually PAY me for my work, I would be willing to keep doing edits until my client is happy, and if fading out my credit is what they ask, then I'll consider it. NO WAY will anyone convince me what I do is not important.

Maybe I'm blowing this out of proportion, but I'm still pissed off.

I tend to make a lot of stuff for myself. I love taking photos of the guys when they were younger and manipping them together. I'm pretty proud of this piece:

I later used it for the banner for one of my favorite fandom author's J2 fic.

I have a LOT of examples for this one, since I art for a lot of fanfics. I'm just gonna choose one of my favorites.

I art for a lot of obsidianromance's fics. This is just one of them.

I was led to an online chibi maker, and I decided to play around with it to see if I could chibify some of the characters. So far, I've only done Sam, Dean, Castiel and Crowley, but I plan to make more. What do you think?
