Snaggged from raloria.

Right Now I'm...

Feeling: Pretty good! I had a therapy session this morning (I see my therapist once a week) and it was a good one.
Wearing: denim capris and one of my J2 AKF shirts
Wishing: my financial situation was better. Being jobless sucks.
Missing: my mom. She's been gone four months.
Thinking: I need to get back to writing. I miss it.
Wondering: how I'm going to be able to pay bills this year until I see if I can get unemployment or disability.
Raving About: J2, as always!
Ranting About: being poor. It's stressful.
Fangirling/Drooling Over: yesterday's J2 and kids Father's day photo that Jensen tweeted.
Thankful For: my brother's support. He's been my rock since our mom died.
Planning: for a trip to Europe this fall. If everything works out, a friend wants to take me to Rome. We'll see.
Looking Forward To: said trip, assuming it happens.
Dreading: the heat of the summer. I loathe hot/humid weather!
Wanting: to get back to my writing. The muse isn't ready to come out play yet, though.
Hoping: my finances improve sooner rather than later.

I'm thrilled that I was able to art for etoile_etiolee's fic, Within You. She is a joy to work with, and I'd do it again in a heartbeat!

I claimed J2 #33. If this is your fic, CONTACT ME!!! I'm wanting to get the discussion going.

Update from my post yesterday...today has been a better day. No depression, so my bout of it probably isn't as serious as other people have, but I still plan to see what help I can get.

I claimed a fic for the SPN-J2 BB but haven't heard from my author yet. If my author will contact me asap, I'd love to talk with you and see what you're looking for.

On the personal front, today hasn't been the best of days. It's Mother's Day here in the USA, and since I lost my mom less than three months ago, it's been a rough day. I thnik I'm clinically depressed; I just haven't been diagnosed yet. I need to get something done though because I can't manage this way. I try to keep Jared and his Always Keep Fighting in mind, but sometimes it's easier said than done. I've been dealing with a lot in the past few months: lost my mom, lost my job, dealing with health issues of mine as well as my brother's, and renovations of my apartment. I'm not dealing with it all well.

I found four of my own fic, randomly selected by a bot it seems. I sent them an email, demanding they remove my fic, although that was before I read the very helpful instructions provided in the link above. Maybe I should send them another. OTW is on the case, hopefully that will help shut this shit down.

I'm fucking furious. Assholes making money of fanfic writers' free but very hard labour. Not to mention how it fucks with the whole "fair use" idea. Fuck you, assholes. Fuck you very hard in the ass with a barbed wire.

ETA: They haven't stolen any of mine, but I'm sure they have done so with other fanfic writers we know and love in this and other fandoms. They've stolen several fics by my bestie obsidianromance as well. Let's kick their ass, people.

Where's caring big brother Dean when you want/need him? Oh yeah...with Sammy. I've been under the weather this weekend with a cold, and since I figured I can't have Dean to take care of me, I'd let Sam have him. Just as it should be, I guess.

Happy Easter, gang!

A Twitter friend asked for art of J2 as cowboys, or more specifically, cowboy!Jensen teaching Jared how to horseback ride. This is what I came up with.

Once again, I come to my friends here to humbly ask for prayers and good wishes, this time for my mom. We've just been kicked in our heads with some worrisome news concerning her health, and it's probably going to be rough in the days and months ahead. I'm not going into details since it's about her and not myself, but prayers for my whole family would be greatly appreciated.

I won't be online as much while all this is going on, but I will check in as I can. Thanks ahead of time for your good thoughts. My mom appreciates it, and I do as well, more than you know. *hugs and love to you all*

It's been a few years ago, but a few friends and I worked on creating cards for our Winchester Arcana Tarot deck. Since then, a lot of new characters have been introduced on the show, so I'm wondering who would be interested in helping me create a new deck for all the old as well as new characters. I'm not sure yet if my fellow comm mods are still interested, but just in case they aren't, I'm looking for anyone who wasn''t involved in it back then but would like to be now.

I'm also looking for someone with HTML knowledge to help me maintain the old comm as well as a new one if this project gets up and running.

Please, gang, speak up if this sounds like something you'd like to help me with, and you have time for. It's a huge project - I'll warn you about that now. The one person who's interested (and who had this idea in the first place) suggests we shoot for an October 2015 deadline, around the time season 11 would premiere. I think that sounds doable. I just need a lot of help to get this underway. I kow some of the previous artists aren't at LJ anymore, so I'm looking for new artists who have joined the fandom in the last few years. Too, if anyone who arted for us the first time wants to do so again, you're all welcome to jump in again.

Last time, I was sent the finished cards, then I added decorative edging and banners with the name of the particular Tarot cards to give all the cards a continuity. This time I won't do that, but I think there needs to be something to give all the new cards a continuity. I'm looking for suggestions about that as well.

If you're interested, or have any ideas to suggest, feel free to email me. Kadysn at gmail dot com.

25th-Nov-2014 03:26 pm - Fic illustrations question
*Jared*
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.

Dean- Awkward
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?
7th-Sep-2014 06:03 pm - Question... (edited)
Dean- Awkward
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 09
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!

8th-Jul-2014 02:05 pm - Posing a fanfic question
Bang head
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.
27th-Jun-2014 08:05 pm - Guys...what's wrong with this fandom?
season8gagreel-hug
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.

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

6. Something for a minor 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!
7th-Jun-2014 08:49 pm - Taking a break...
Dean-bullshit
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.
