I was hoping that someone was going to do a Firefly related one, to make a change..but no.
No worries though, I still got lucky in the one I picked, thanks Lynne!


So.. this is the summary I went for: J2

Five years after Supernatural ends, several of the actors make their way to a hotel in the wilds of Montana for a convention to celebrate it being ten years since the show started. But people change over time. Friendships have ended badly, secrets abound and nothing is as it seems on the surface. Jared and Jensen have to put aside the tensions between them and work together again when it turns out that hunters and demons are very real and the end of the world is almost upon them.

The story is Glowing Like the Metal on the Edge of a Knife by [livejournal.com profile] delanach.

I did this Jared/Jensen wallpaper as part of [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang, that I posted yesterday, but in the end went with a different version of it.

You are welcome to use, but please keep this one to personal desktop use only, thanks.

Not spoilery, but probably not something you'd want to view with someone looking over your shoulder ;-) )

So, that's me done. I've had good experiences with both of the stories, I did graphics for. Both Shannon and Kel have been lovely to work with. If you haven't already I hope you'll add them to your reading list.

Anyways I wanted to thank everyone that has looked at my graphics, supported, and encouraged me..honestly you lot gave me the confidence to try in the first place.

So it's been mainly eating, sleeping and drinking Big Bang for the last three months..I've no idea what to do with myself next..LOL!

xx.

The Truth I Seek by [livejournal.com profile] arianstarr

Summary: Jensen's life as he knows it is ripped to shreds in one brutal act of revenge. He is left struggling to put the pieces of himself back together while searching for a balance between who he was before and who he is now. Jared is forced to watch from the sidelines as Jensen fights against his personal demons, pushing everyone who loves him away until he has no one left. Will Jensen find his way back to Jared, or will the trauma divide them for good?




WARNING: GRAPHICS ARE VERY SPOILERY FOR THE STORY! ALSO THERE IS BARE SKIN, BUT NO BOY BITS IF YOU ARE VIEWING AT WORK.

I'm having a hellish week RL wise so slipping into make believe has been more than welcome.

And Hell Followed With Him by [livejournal.com profile] legoline.
GEN: Dean's gone to Hell, and Hell's come to Earth. After the apocalypse, Sam is the leader of some of the last remaining people who are continually caught in a struggle against the demons that walk amongst them. Castiel, burdened by a terrible secret, has gone into hiding among the humans. One day, four years after his deal was up, a battered Dean returns from Hell at the same time that suspicions begin that there is a mole in the camp. While Sam and Dean are too broken to find the courage to believe in the reality of what has happened, rumors of treason spread quickly across the camp. With the tension nearing a breaking point, Sam is suddenly faced with the possibility that his brother, who he once thought was gone to him forever, has returned and is bringing Hell with him.

An Issue of Consent by [livejournal.com profile] varkelton.
WINCEST: Sam has always needed Dean, but when a devastating attack leaves Sam cursed, that need is perverted into something he and Dean never expected. Dean will do whatever it takes to keep his brother safe, but will either one of them be able to live with the consequences?

See: Life by [livejournal.com profile] silentpoetry1.
J2: At the orders of his psychiatrist, Jensen is forced to leave the city and move in with his aunt in a remote and laid back country town. Out amongst the endless horizons and suffocating world, his Bipolar Disorder, questionable love of psychedelics, broken past, and his strange fear of and infatuation with them seems out of place. He is out of place. But all this may change when he meets a boy named Jared with startling jackal eyes, the type of person he never looked for, but perhaps he always needed. Jensen just needs to get out of his wrecked head first.

In Harm's Way by [livejournal.com profile] gatorgrrrl.
J2: Jared Padalecki is living a quiet life in San Antonio until one day he is snatched off the street by two men. Enter Tom Delaney, CIA spy. Only that's not his real name. His real name is Jensen Ackles, and he needs Jared's help. Jensen and his team have been tracking a man named Alain Laurent, a terrorist disguised as a legitimate businessman. Only, they haven't been able to get close enough to him to gather any useful intelligence. They know that Laurent and his partner, Rafiq Abdul-Aziz, are planning something big -- and possibly explosive. They just don't know what and they don't know when. But they know that time is running out. That's where Jared comes in. With a little manipulation, Jensen convinces Jared to help. To use himself as bait to lure Laurent into revealing his secrets. But nothing is ever that simple. As Jensen and Jared become more than just professional colleagues, the stakes become even higher. And when their mission takes an unexpected turn, Jensen must decide between love and duty, with devastating consequences.


While we are on the subject of Big Bang..I got my graphics finished yesterday, and something I've learn't.. I really, really suck at soundtrack listings! I probably suck at more than that, but that has kicked my arse...LOL!
apieceofcake: (Default)
So you all know that I'm doing the graphics for this one. I already know it doesn't suck because i got excited about doing graphics for the moment I read the first page of the draft, and I have read it through twice now..LOL!

Anyways [livejournal.com profile] arianstarr is looking for 1 or 2 people who would be willing to do the following:

>>I'm in need of 1-2 people willing to read through my big bang fic and provide some honest feedback about aspects like the plot as a whole, pacing, clarity, characterization, etc.

What I'm looking for:


1-2 readers willing to give honest, constructive feedback on the story in general and who won't be offended if I choose not to follow through on an aspect of that feedback.

Readers willing to read the story in entirety and give their feedback within what could turn out to be a fairly short window of time (as little as 5 days).

Readers who, barring something coming up on their end, will be able to follow through with the commitment of reading and giving feedback.

What I'm not looking for:

Those just wanting a chance to read the story early.

Those who feel that they may be likely to respond with only "wow, that was...< insert adjective here >!".

The Story:
Pairing: Jared/Jensen
Rating: NC-17
Approximate word count: 30,000
Characters: Jensen, Jared, and their respective families. Some OCs. Steve Carlson, Christian Kane, and mentions of Welling, Rosenbaum, Mack, and Kripke. Sadie and Harley.
Warnings: Explicit non-con and violence. The J's families (I know some people don't like fic that involves their families, so I felt I should warn for this).

Summary: Jensen's life as he knows it is ripped apart at the seams with one brutal act of revenge. He is left struggling to put the pieces of himself back together while searching for a balance between who he was before and the man he is now. Jared is forced to watch from the sidelines as Jensen fights to overcome his personal demons while pushing those who love him most further and further away. Will Jensen find his way back to Jared, or will the trauma divide them for good? <<


Our posting date is 28th July, so she is looking for people who can do this NEXT WEEK.

Is anyone able to help her out?
apieceofcake: (Reading)
So I'm grinning like a loon..

The Seahorse was one of my favourite Big Bang fics from last year so when I saw this was coming up I might have squee'd..LOL!

Sometimes though you worry that a sequel won't live up to expectations. Need not have worried though as I adorded this :-)

Palace of the Brine by [livejournal.com profile] memphis86.
It's been five years since Jared Padalecki had his daughter, Eve thanks to a little miracle from an Egyptian fertility god. Now he and his partner, Jensen Ackles are raising her together in San Francisco, along with her other father, Chad Michael Murray; and everything seems to be moving along fine. Jared's working as a college art professor, and Jensen is still at Grace's Heart hospital, a resident OB-GYN. But when Jared decides to try for miracle number two, it seems to stir up some rough waters for everyone around him. Is this a blessing in disguise, or has Jared really set off a curse this time?

If you're not sure that Mpreg is for you then these really are ideal fics to test the waters :-)

Dorsum ad Dorsum by [livejournal.com profile] kellifer_fic

Summary:
Seventeen years ago, a small family survives a terrible fire. Eleven years ago, the mother disappears, taking the youngest son with her. Over the intervening years, the oldest son watches their trail go cold and his father sink further and further into despondency. Now he hunts alone and will learn that the only thing worse than never finding his family...is finding them.




Spoilers for the story so you might want to read that first.. )

*wipes brow* the one with the early posting date, I've just got finshed and the link sent in :-)

The other one I've sent in the drafts as i have until July to complete that!

YAY! now I can go worry about Asylum!

I want to say a big thank you to all those who have commented on my thread on the Summer Love Meme, appreciate your lovely comments *huggles you* :-)

And sends huggles to all those on my flist and those that watch..sorry I couldn't comment on yours or keep up with your posts..hope to do better once everything settles down again somewhat after June 9th.

It turns out that the one I started doesn't post till July 28th, and the one I haven't...June 9th !!

As the drafts have to be in by June 1st and Asylum is before that ..that leaves me a little over a week to get ones for that done!

So I buckled down today and made a start, and what happens..power cut! Which meant that not only was the power out for a couple of hours I also lost what I was working on..argh!!!!!!!!!!!!

Tomorrow is Chloe's 4th birthday, so I doubt I'm gonna get time then..so..I'm really close to panicking! As there was me telling Kel not to panic..LOL!

Apologies for not being around/commenting. I do care, just time is not on my side at the moment.

Rating: Adult (Language)
Summary: “Something happened,” John says, gripping the wheel hard. “I need… I need to know what happened.”

Seventeen years ago, a small family survives a terrible fire. Eleven years ago, the mother disappears, taking the youngest son with her. Over the intervening years, the oldest son watches their trail go cold and his father sink further and further into despondency. Now he hunts alone and will learn that the only thing worse than never finding his family...is finding them.

*gulps* I'm excited but so bloody nervous..LOL! So we'll see how it goes ;-)
apieceofcake: (Bigbang)
So today is the day for claiming for Big Bang and I'm getting in a bit of a stew already! LOL! They aren't up yet..

How am I supposed to choose from a paragraph of summary..and then I might not like it..or they might think oh noes not her..or/and then I don't do the fic justice.

I'm knee twitching, leg banging here..LOL!

Doesn't help that I'm trying to book my rail ticket for Asylum and their system crashed..so that's not done either.

So I've finished the headers/blends for The Rapture..but now I don't know/ can't decide wether to do icons or not...

And I'm really late and way behind with comments, and feeling bad about that....

So I think I need to take a deep breath, get some lunch and take Chloe to the park before it rains..sounds like a plan!

I asked [livejournal.com profile] pekover if I could treat her J3 story Eventing Au as my Big Bang trial run.

I thought it would be good to do this because I know nothing about horses, or Eventing and I don't often read J3..but was captivated by this one from the first chapter :-)

I'd appreciate it if you'd take a couple of minutes to see what you think and constructive criticism is welcome!




Not dial-up friendly & big spoilers for the story so far )
apieceofcake: (Default)
This is how I spent my afternoon..and yes it did take that long because PSP crashed and I had to start again!

I'm getting a little nervous about bigbang and thought I could use some practice on blending more than just a couple of images on different layers. I'm gonna have to do these kinda graphics some more because I tend to make them over busy, but I am pleased at how they turned out.


Anyways these are sort of a prequel to [livejournal.com profile] pekover's J3 story Eventing AU which I'm enjoying.

Oh yes I did..



You all know how much I love reading the fics, and I see the great artwork that people make for them..and I think that that is something I'd like to do. But with my self confidence issues, I also look at them and think I'm not good enough.

I can't draw unless it's stick people, or trees..LOL, and I can't manip people to look like they are having sex on the table, or are nurses, indian braves etc which sometimes the fic calls for you to do..so I wasn't going to sign up this year either.
Then I saw a comment (sorry i can't remember whose it was), that they hoped more artists would sign up this year..and that even if the only thing you've done before was make icons..then give making a banner a go!

So I got to thinking..there are lots of things I can't do, but there are others I'm reasonably good at..peeps do ask me to do things..so I should stop being a chicken and sign up..which I promptly did before I could talk myself out of it again!

Anyone else in two minds whether to do it? Come on take the plunge ;-)

And unlike the writers, we don't have to worry about until May.
