Okay, so that out of the way ... the gift I received was an amazing 'guilty pleasure' mini-masterpiece! It's no secret I like The Boys (be they Winchesters or J2) in darker incarnations. To that end, the entirely too brilliant tebtosca got my prompts in the draw and wrote this: Blood Runs Crazy
READ IT. IT IS BEAUTY OF THE DARKEST ORDER. And it's short but so, so potent. No excuses, go read. You heard me, GO.
Did you read it? Okay, good. Now, here's the little drawing I made for brutti_ma_buoni, under the cut. Sweetly NSFW, y'all, so hide your iPad/phone/monitor when you click. ;)

Inspiration for the poses was a photo by either Bruce Weber or an A&F ad campaign, I forget which. Drawn quickly in pencil then digitally colored. I tried not to belabor it, per the rules of the event, so it's not quite as polished as my usual fare. But yanno? That's refreshing sometimes! And heartening to know when pressed, you can crank out something half way decent. So thar it be!
I forgot the prompt for the art: it was "out behind the barn one summer", and features a young Jensen, Gen, and Jared. In my AU head canon, maybe they're home for summer break from college, and they find themselves drifting apart. Best friends, staring at forks in their roads. So ... yeah. Why not? Before they all meander off to responsible adulthood. ;)
