"A Monster By Any Other Name", chapter 38 is up!  

I have SO much art (not all fandom) that I've been neglect in posting, so I'm gonna try to start here, with one of my fave long-term fic projects:

“After Sam had been reading and re-reading the essays in the magazine for about a week, Dean finally said something.

“Doesn't that bother you?"”

Another illustration for the on-going (and brilliant) saga, “A Monster By Any Other Name”. This chapter was particular relevant to today’s atmosphere. It was purging. I’m so jazzed to see where Brosedshield and LaviniaLavender go from here!

Ach, his hands...*happysigh*

I'm afraid to pick up reading again. I'm such a wuss. :(

THIS WAS SUCH A GOOD CHAPTER. READ EEEEEET.

I decided I have to reread the whole thing. I'm on chapter 20 today, and dropping a comment here and there...I'm right back where I was when I first read it, emotionally. :)

OMG, did you start from the very beginning??
roxymissrose: sunroxymissrose on November 6th, 2017 03:49 am (UTC)
Yes! I've been reading for a couple of days! I was afraid to go through all the pain again, but you have to, you know? This story....so amazing.

Brilliant art for a brilliant fic!

I can't wait for the last chapter so I can start reading from the first one again :)))))

All the delicious hurt and tragedy in that first part ... *heart eyes*

AHHHHHHHH THANK YOU SO SO SO MUCH! I haven't fully expounded on my FEELINGS for this piece, but it is accurate to say there are HEARTS IN MY EYES.

To start, I just love the color palette -- so soft, he's lovingly drawn, and it matches my feelings for our Sam perfectly.

And then I get into details like his hair curling on his neck, the color in his face, and for some reason his knuckles make me very emotional. And I absolutely love that you included the hint of his tattoo and the tape covering the older one, omg. And his EYES! ::swoons::

This is such a beautiful tribute to our story and version of the character, and I will treasure it in an intense but non-creepy manner along with all your other arts for our story. <333

I love knuckles. I can't lie. Knobby bits. *cough*

(Go ahead, be creepy. I love creepy, hee!)

As always you knocked it out of the park! I love the peak of the Sam's tattoo, the lovely length and curl at the nape of the neck of Sam's hair, those lovely long fingers and the warmth of the colours you've used. I also love the softness of it, and how the edges sort of fade away into the background.

I need to catch up on this fic!!!

Yassss, you doooooo... :D

*gasps* I had no idea you'd made art for this??? *hearteyes*
I...may need to re-read it...I stopped keeping up with it a while ago, but I still think of it periodically. Seeing your gorgeous art for it though...I think I need to jump back into this world *swoons*

I think it would be interesting to go back and re-read from the beginning, binge-style. I often wonder how that alters our viewing experience when we binge TV shows, instead of taking time to dissect and mull over chapters/episodes, between consumption. I wonder if it would make us less angstsy about the canon, because we don't have an opportunity to hear/see people complaining? Or if we're unhappy with a particular portion, we can quickly keep reading or watching to see if it gets addressed. It's a fascinating, shifting time in creation...

That's interesting to think about! I've noticed this thing where people who have been watching SPN for a long time tend to dislike the newer seasons - I'm new(ish) to it - binged up to halfway through S10 - and while I do agree 1-5 are very cohesive story-wise, and are the best, I don't feel the later seasons are bad. So I wonder if binging has something to do with that perspective?

And I've also found I *despise* going on SM after a new episode, because any negativity just ruins my enjoyment.

Interesting things to think about!

I have a real love/hate relationship with SM, post-viewing, YES. If I dislike an episode, I hate to rain on anyone's parade (tho sometimes I still do, and for that, I apologize!), and if I've loved an episode, invariably there are folks who have no qualms about panning it. Lately, I've been giving the episode a second watch before I officially dive into critique. I definitely watch the show for different things than some fans. I try to remember which goggles any given person on my TL might be viewing the show through.

And in closing: S1-5 FOREVAH. ;)

ALL HAIL S1-5!!

I've re-read parts 1 & 2 now - guh. Just so much pain and love and healing and love and....guh!
I sometimes forget that I really enjoy darker stories. This one is SO hard to read at times, it's hurts so much - but then the upswing is so much MORE! *hearteyes*

so beautiful!
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffin: Black-eyed Samquickreaver on November 6th, 2017 01:32 am (UTC)
Thank YOU, sweetness! (You're always so, so nice. And I appreciate that more than you know. :D)

Weird - I can't see a picture here - what's cracking off?

I tried ages ago to get into that fic but couldn't make it work for me but I'm ready to applaud anything that gets you arting..
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffin: Black-eyed Samquickreaver on November 23rd, 2017 01:38 am (UTC)
I dunno what happened there; it USED to show! I fixed it. Thanks for the heads up, lady!
Amber: Bumamberdreams on November 23rd, 2017 09:01 am (UTC)
Yay! I can see it now - and it's nice to know it wasn't just me having some sort of weird glitch.

So - is this pencil and digital colouring/textures? It's very pretty with the warm glow and the grunginess. I see why folk are fixated on his left hand, that is rather lovely.
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffin: Black-eyed Samquickreaver on November 23rd, 2017 05:46 pm (UTC)
Exactly! Lemme dig up the original pencil for you...
