SPN Masterlist, because this spot should not remain a mystery.

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...

Art AND a DollarForMYName! :D

Okay, so as a pretty committed fandom artist who occasionally writes, I seldom get art for my modest fics. Understandable. (There are myriad better writers!) But enter quicky_bang...


The lovely and hugely skillful dollarformyname snagged one of my favorite little fics, SLUG, or The Day Wyatt Hatfield Gave Up Hunting, Probably. I don't have the illustrations embedded into the fic yet, but you must pop over to dollarformyname's post, get you some serious eye candy, and leave her a GLORIOUS and well-deserved comment! Because this stuff right here? IT'S HAWWWWWT.

Little teaser, you can click to see the rest of the goodies:

Safe for work. DO ENJOY!

Freckle tutorial for Deb!

I'm trying to put out a few tutorials, and [personal profile] cassiopeia7 requested "freckles", so I have freckled! Click image to enlarge it. Also, if anyone needs some nice splatter brushes, CHECK THESE OUT. (I've played with 'em, and they're very good! Lotsa variety. They may be my new favorite. You need to be signed into DA to download them, but if you don't have an account, let me know.)

Hurricane Harvey Auctionreaver!

It ain't much, but I need to do something, however small, to help folks hurt by Harvey. My Paypal mad-money is depleted, so I'm going to offer up a SINGLE auction spot to the highest bidder. You can request either art or fic from me ... maybe even a little of both, if the price is right. It can be art for one of your own fics, a random portrait, it can be an iddy shortfic, a tutorial (though I already have plans to do a few of those for everyone), it can even be original art! I'm open to negotiation. Scope of handiwork will be commensurate with the $$$ of the winning bid. (I know I still owe folks a few commissions out there, but this one's proceeds will go entirely to Hurricane Harvey relief.)

Bidding will happen in the comments here at my Live Journal, and close at 11:59 pm (EDT) Friday, Sept. 1st. Once the highest bidder has won their booty, a donation in that amount needs to be made to the donator's hurricane-related charity of choice within a day. When I see a receipt, dated post-auction, I'm yours! (I trust y'all not to cheat, okay?)

Anonymous posting will be turned on, for folks without LJ accounts. Please leave your name and main journal URL in your bid. Due to personal scheduling, expect delivery in mid-November.

Opening bid will start at $25.00 AMD and increase in whole dollar increments.

What am I bid? :D

Back, and stuff!

I've been off gallivanting for a coupla weeks--first, up to the UP and then straight down to Disneyworld--and I'm DONE with driving for a while. At any rate, there were many adventures! Didn't see a bear up north (the hubs did, boooo), but I did see an eagle and a fox. And a charming little rose-breasted grosbeak that hung out by my friend's family cabin, off Lake Superior. It was a tad drizzly, which was perfect for "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald", that ran through my brain in a constant loop.

Then we made a beeline for Florida, and somewhere around Georgia, there was a suspicious wobble and we pulled over just in time to find that we'd lost FOUR lug nuts out of one tire. One valiant lug nut was keeping us from potentially dying, going 70 mphs, on a Georgia highway. We had just gotten new tires, and the mechanic had over-tightened the bolts, causing them to twist and weaken. My husband had BIG WORDS with Midas. Apart from that, the trip was busy and much fun! If anyone gets to Disneyworld, check out the new Pandora-land thingy and rides; pretty cool stuff. Glowy plants, riding those blue dragon critters--can you tell I don't know squat about the movie? Still, the whole fam enjoyed it.

Okay, SO! Now, to something that really tickled my heartspot: lennelle gifted me with the most wonderful portrait of Sam from my ficlet 'And She Was'. I swear, it's so, SO lovely ... both from an artistic and emotive front. I'll tease you here, but you MUST go to her journal and see the whole thing. It's just delicious.

Sam, post curse, for my fic 'And She Was'

(click image to be transported to the whole shebang!)

I can't express how really sweet it is to receive art. As a fan artist (primarily), I seldom get art done for my fics. [personal profile] beelikej cooked up a really excellent comm in The Quickie Bang, for which this art was done. Check out all of the comm's offerings! <3<3<3

Polling the peanut gallery

Time for my annual "Which stupid WIP should I pretend to work on during vacation?" I suspect it looks just like last year's quest...

1) The Wing!fic wherein J2 are of a winged race of humans but Jared has lost a wing and all hope, then Jensen shows up and sees a project in Jared. Oh, and Jensen might be a little bit psychic. Or something. (I swear it makes sense in my brain.) Set in a pioneer/homesteader sort of period, mid-1800's technology, with guns and farming and trapping and the like. Creative working title: Wing!fic

2) Fleshing out the universe (and trying to come up with some sort of grander plot) for A Slave in Winter. Fantasy slave!fic. Jared is an escaped slave with a secret (besides the fact he's an escaped slave), and Jensen is the local blacksmith Jared rescues. And highjinx ensue.

3) Home: a fic I started for a friend that would be nice to finish sometime before the show ends. (Which, well...) Cas is human and has been hunting with The Boys, but an injury puts an end to that and Dean buys a house for them all. Except that Sam isn't ready to settle down and leaves Dean and Cas to their own retirement. It should be easy, right? Naaaaah.

Only ONE choice, y'all. I need to finish some-damned-thing. (These are just the longer fics I've started; I don't even wanna think about all the shorties I've got lingering in bits and pieces.)
