Howdy, y'all. Welcome to the virtual home of my Supernatural Infatuation™, artsy and writerly. Constructive criticism is highly encouraged for all the exploits I post here. Feel free to make icons, headers, art, stories, podfics, what have ya, as long as I'm credited somewhere even if it's teensy weensy! and you let me know where I can see it. (Collaborations are some of my very favorite things!) Carry on, my wayward babies...

sillie82, amberdreams and I were talking about memes and art and stuff, as we do, and we cooked up this opportunity for folks to to shine a little light on our fandom's artists: the ArtRec10 meme! Give us links to ten of your favorite pieces of SPN/RPF fandom artworks. Could be on LJ, tumblr, deviantart, wherever. We know there's lots of faves, but try to pick a few. Let's make today a little more beautiful! Couldn't we use that right now?

Topics may overlap — for instance, your h/c fill may be digital — but we'd like to see ten unique reccs, if you can manage it. Also, be sure to provide a link to the original art, so folks can leave love for the artist. If you choose to post the images, mind the image sizes and be sure to put it all under a cut.

1.) traditional - Cain, by sillie82, SFW, amazing pencil work!
2.) digital (handpainted/drawn via digital means) - Art for The Man in the Suit, by chomaisky, NFSW, so lusciously painted and tho there's nudity, it's not vulgar. It's elegant and stunning.
3.) Mixed Media - art for the RB 2015-15, Within My Reach, by beelikej, paper cut-outs and Photoshop, SFW, so meticulously executed and cute as hell.
4.) alternative media (paper cut-outs, stitchery, jewelry, cosplay) - This design by amberdreams, SFW, SO STINKIN' COOL. It really does make a gorgeous shirt.
5.) photomanip/graphics - Team Free Will + elements, by sorauwu(tumblr). SFW, tumblr is chock full of graphics and manips, so many of 'em pretty derned good. This is one.
6.) h/c - EVERYTHING by Ashlee at AskSamStuff(tumblr). Seriously. If you're a fan of Sam and h/c and adorable art, you can't go wrong with her entire repertoire! 99% SFW.
7.) horror - Boy!king Sam, by drawsshits (tumblr), SFW but there's a little blood, and thorns and batwings and golden eyes and ALL those tasty things!
8.) shmoop - Lil' Sam and Dean at Halloween, by hangsabove(tumblr), SFW, cute as a bug's ear. I recommend a stroll through all of her stuff!
9.) nsfw - Hellhoundsprey, omg. There's this series of fics and art -- the Fuckpig'verse -- that are so, SO naughty. It’s a "J2 AU made up of dirty thrash metal boys", but that's putting it lightly. It's all the things you may or may NOT have thought you wanted. (I read the fics peeking through my fingers!) The art fits the fics so perfectly, gritty and delicate at the same time, but the thing I never expected was the level of heart in this series, in these characters, despite their depravity . I particularly like this painting. NSFW, duh.
10.) WILD CARD! I envy the heck outta people who can make art this loose and stylized, and still recognizable and just plain killer. No, LITERALLY. Dean/Cas Mafia Au, by anobviousaside(tumblr). SFW.

ENJOY! And let's see YOUR recs...

SPN Review, 12.3, trick or treat? Or neither...

The week's episode had me neither gleeful nor gnashing my teeth. It kinda sat somewhere in the middle. So as per my usual, 13 little ponderings by way of a review. Be respectful when responding, y'all know the drill. :)

Patented Singer snap-zoom and...GO!Collapse )

Also, I have no idea where the title to this week's episode comes from (The Foundry). Anyone?

SPN Review, 12.2, return of the Dastardly Duo

First off, thanks to everyone who left me a one-word review, as requested! It helped me go into this prepared. Consequently, I think I enjoyed it more than I might have without warning. So kisses to y'all.

Was so busy this week, I almost didn't get a review in, but better late than never? Maybe?


There might've been a few more things I wanted to note, but I'm capping it at 13, for reasons. ;) Civil replies welcomed! You know the dealio...

S12, SPN Premier! All in the family...

This is a review of Supernatural, 12.1. Do I need to tell anyone there will be spoilers? ;) Yay, the show is back!

I feel I need to preface this with the comment that YES, I know the show isn't what it once was. (I made the mistake of watching the last three episodes of S3 before the premier of S12. Don't do this to yourself, folks.) On the heels of that, my feelings are that the acting is still fantastic, the writing waxes and wanes, but I feel the series as a whole has suffered from the network's request that they "lighten up the look". I miss the old grit and grunge and chiaroscuro, the long shadows and desaturated hues. It was such a hallmark of the show, added such gravitas. Please, network, can we do this again? No? Well, shucks.

Annnnywho, the episode at hand! I jotted down thoughts as they occurred to me, numbered for ease of reply, so that's what yer gettin'.

Opinionation under the cutCollapse )

All comments welcomed! Just be nice to each other. I reserve the right to shut down personal attacks and blatant character bashing. We don't all have to agree, but we can be civil, yeah? :D
