No, you are not suffering from déjà vu. This is a semi-repost of art done last year. The fic is done and being posted today (yay!) so I took the opportunity to cringe at the stuff I did then and decided to try and salvage it. So while some of these things will look v. similar, some pieces are new or just completely redone.

Fic: Wend and Repeat (Until True) by [livejournal.com profile] novembersmith
Fandom: The Social Network
Pairing: Mark/Eduardo
Summary: In which Mark accidentally puts a claim on Eduardo's soul, loses Eduardo, and then goes to the Underworld to get him back. Includes meddling spirits, Eduardo as a captive, mute audience to Mark's recaps of their personal history, and absolutely no maenads.

Note about the art: One of the elements I played with was modern vs. antique. I wish I could tell you all about the traditional art I used, but truth be-told I simply did a Google Image search.

No, the post I made yesterday wasn't just to break up the string of big bang posts. It simply happened to work out that way.

This is the last big bang post you will see from me for awhile, as I am not currently lined up to do any more. Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] novembersmith for just being generally awesome and amazing and appreciative and wonderful and such as well as the mods for running an awesome challenge.

Third post in a row that is just big bang art. I swear I do exist besides that.

Anyway, here is art for the [livejournal.com profile] fledmusic's wonderful fic.

Fic: almost, finally, finally
Fandom: The Social Network
Pairing: Mark/Eduardo
Fic Rating: R
Summary: sequel to “these things get louder.” The first year of Mark and Eduardo's long-distance romance, featuring PDAs in formal wear, revelations about cookies, drama over Facebook info updates, and realizations that absence doesn't make the heart grow fonder quite so much as it makes the heart grow frustrated.

Notes: This is less fanart than fandesign. A cover, then quotes from the fic for each month of the year.

sometimes people warn for a wall of text. this is more like a wall of images )

Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] fledmusic for writing this awesome fic and to my darling chat for putting up with me making them tell me my stuff is pretty.

Also, if you do put this on tumblr for whatever reason you must credit and link back to either my lj or dw!
kristin: (music: runaway - unconventional couple)
Last SPN art post of the year! Thanks to [personal profile] sunspot for being so enthusiastic about working with me, even when I decided to try a new style.

Which leads me to a caveat: While I can design and can use shapes to create icons and logos in Illustrator, freehand work or even tracing is not my forte. Proceed with caution is all I am saying.

Fic: The Maiden Voyage of the S.S. Bad Touch
Author: [personal profile] sunspot
Fandom: Supernatural
Pairing(s): References to Sam/Ruby
Summary:
Take one demon and add an angel. Subtract their powers and strand far from humans. The math is conclusive. It's time to get off the island.

Even if it means paddling.

Once again I managed to snag the claim of a fellow fan artist, this time [livejournal.com profile] geckoholic, and feel very intimidated. Luckily she seems to like my interpretations of her fic.

Fic: Devil Man
Author: [livejournal.com profile] geckoholic
Fandoms: Supernatural
Pairing(s): Gen
Summary: S6 AU (sort of), goes off from canon roundabout halfway into Swan Song:
Michael didn't take Adam as his vessel for the final fight, so after the devil went off wearing Sam,Dean says yes as well. But the fight that followed got interrupted, for reasons neither Sam nor Dean remember. Both angels and demons seemingly packed up and left, and what's left behind is a world that got shaken by a bunch of natural disasters.

Two years later the brothers and Castiel still struggle with the aftermath of the apocalypse and
everything that led up to it when Sam starts to behave strangely. But Lucifer is gone . . Or is he?

Yes, this is my second post in a row that is big bang art. At least you get to enjoy the pretty (hopefully)?

This is the unique art attempted by [livejournal.com profile] attempt_unique for Unique.

*ahem*

I might have picked this fic for the coordinating title, but I am so glad I did. The Dexter voice is amazingly great, the fic is wonderful, and [livejournal.com profile] claudiapriscus was a joy to work with.

Fic: Unique Link to fic now up!
Author: [livejournal.com profile] claudiapriscus
Fandoms: Supernatural, Dexter
Pairing(s): Gen
Summary:
It's a prize Dexter can hardly resist: a notorious mass murder who has eluded the law time and time again - to say nothing of convincingly faking his death several times. Dexter intends to fix that. It'll stick this time: he'll see to it.

My first big bang post of the year, for [livejournal.com profile] thesocialbbang.

Creating art for this fic was so much fun, despite, or maybe because of, the limited time frame we had for this round. (See: my love of pinch hits, deadlines etc. Makes things exciting. I actually had these done within 48 hours of getting the fic.)

Hopefully it doesn't disappoint!

Fic: And I Will Hold On
Author: [livejournal.com profile] venus_aurea
Fandom: The Social Network
Pairing(s): Eduardo/Mark
Warning(s): deals with mental health issues
Summary: AU. When Mark mysteriously disappears one morning, Eduardo begins to question his own sanity and starts to see a therapist, hoping to figure out the puzzle of his relationship with Mark.

and now for the art! )

ETA: Fic is now up. Plus, now I have an appropriate icon.
kristin: (music: lupe is the cool)
People, why is my life so very boring? Please don't answer that, for I fear it would result in a vicious cycle of tediousness.

Instead, let's talk fannish happenings. And since I do so very much love lists, I am employing the trusty bullets.
  • The season of big bangs has commenced! Feel free to make dirty jokes about banging and big things as you please. This weekend I finished art for two claims, one for the first round of [livejournal.com profile] thesocialbbang and the other for [livejournal.com profile] sncross_bigbang. (Yes, I officially failed at writing for the latter, so claimed an awesome fic to make art for instead.)

    I also have two more fics in my possession in need of art (for [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang) for which I have plans and ideas. So many ideas! (And also, awesomely, lots and lots of time until they will be posted.)

  • Relatedly, lend me your ears! Or rather, lend me the thing you listen to with your ears, aka music! While putting together mixes I realized my music collection is in need of a good turnover. What are you listening to these days, oh wonderful circle of friends?

    I (obviously) have been listening to Lupe's new album. (You should have seen my face when Lasers leaked. It was like :DDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD. Only happier. And not actually an emoticon.) Sadly, it did not quite live up to my expectations, though truthfully that would have been very hard. But I still recommend it, as well as all of his past catalog.

  • This week marks the ending of most of the shows I follow. I am considering doing a roundup of this TV season and why I started/stopped/continued watching certain shows. However, I think I would need to break out my Teal Deer Crossing sign if I did that.

    I have been following the ongoing Upfronts, because, yes, I am that kind of a TV geek. I am super excited for Awake and Alcatraz, and kinda meh about all the other announced new shows so far. I have very mixed feelings about the fact that NBC declined to pick up Wonder Woman. Gimme fantastic female superheros, please and thank you. On the other hand, well, script, costume and David E. Kelly involvement all pointed to awful television territory.

  • Lastly. Here is my in-depth critique of this week's Doctor Who.

    no real spoilers )
kristin: (music: janelle smiling)
I suppose I should explain my absence from DW/LJ, seeing as I haven't posted in a month and a half. But really, it can all be explained away by the fact that while my real life isn't yet super busy, I am trying very hard to make it so.

Among things I have done in the meantime:

  • Earned money for my art and design skills. (Hopefully this won't be anything of note by this time next year, but for now I am letting myself be happy I have found a way to earn my keep doing something I love.)

  • Gone to an Erotic Reading Room at a bar. I found myself wondering what percentage of the people there were from fandom.

  • Signed up for writing in a big bang. I only have about 2k words written so far, but I think I can do this. I do not, however, think anyone else will want to read it. (For I am actually writing the Supernatural/The Wire crossover I started. The problem is the balance. All 2k words so far are from Michael's (The Wire) POV and the Winchesters have yet to make an appearance.)

  • Written three Supernatural drabbles. This was done entirely to qualify for Remix. I loved pinch hitting last year, but wanted to be able to play for real. The only fandom I qualified for was The Wire, which obviously didn't make their list. Therefore the drabbles. I was amused to find I had the same thought processes last year, which is why I only needed three new drabbles to get me to the minimum.

  • All my fic is up on AO3 now. Looking at it all assembled there makes me realize just how little I have written. There are a couple comment fics I need to clean up a bit and add, but as it stands now, I have only written 32 fics in all my years of fandom, 6 of which are drabbles. (Unsurprisingly, most of my writing has come out of Yuletide. 18 out of 32, in fact.)


Anyway, here are my rough drabbles that I wrote tonight. (And by drabble I do mean 100 words exactly a piece.)

Sleepwalking (100 words) by faviconkristin
Fandom: Supernatural
Rating: General Audiences
Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Castiel
Summary:

He had not found his father, yet. He had, however, found something.


Once (100 words) by faviconkristin
Fandom: Supernatural
Rating: General Audiences
Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Uriel (Supernatural)
Summary:

Once upon a time. That was how stories started now, he knew. Once upon a time, humanity was forced from the garden.


Or Something Like It (100 words) by faviconkristin
Fandom: Supernatural
Rating: General Audiences
Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Victor Henriksen
Summary:

Couldn’t cause a scene now, not when he was a ghost.



(I really like the share feature of AO3, by the way.)

These are the graphics I made for [personal profile] llwyden for the [livejournal.com profile] werewolfbigbang challenge. I offered to beta this fic awhile back, not knowing the fandom or characters, because LLwyden is an awesome friend. I ended up enjoying it and claiming it for nefarious purposes (aka to make art and a mix for it.) Also, I am posting these to my own journal contrary to challenge practices, but I think Llwyden and I will survive.

This art presented some interesting challenges, in that the fandom was a live action video game. (Something I had no clue existed.) This led to me doing things like screencapping YouTube walkthroughs and had to adapt my style to lower quality images. I had lots of fun experimenting to find a style that would work. But enough of that! On to the art! You can find the mix here.

Fic: Fade to Grey

These are the graphics I made for my second claim in the [livejournal.com profile] deancasbigbang big bang aka the Twilight Fusion of awesome.

Fic: Polar Night
Author: [livejournal.com profile] phate_phoenix
Pairing(s) Dean/Castiel, Highlight to read: Sam/Madison, Gabriel/Anna
Fic Warnings: Twilight fusion. Takes place after an AU S2 finale where Sam doesn't die and Dean doesn't sell his soul. Also takes place in an AR, where angels, demons, and werewolves are vastly different. Dramatically altered episodes: ‘Heart’ and ‘All Hell Breaks Loose Parts 1 and 2’

Summary: Months after the Yellow-Eyed Demon and Jake opened the Devil's Gate in Wyoming, Sam and Dean are tracking a series of vampire-related abductions across the western coast of the United States. Their hunt brings them to Forks, Washington: site of the latest disappearances. While there, Sam sees the one that got away, Dean meets a man whose entire family is hiding something, and they learn that vampires are the least of their problems.

I really enjoy making fanmixes, putting together songs to work with the fic as well as with each other. I really try to make each song serve a purpose, either musically or lyrically. This is an explanation of the songs I chose for [livejournal.com profile] phate_phoenix's fic Polar Night. Contains some spoilers for the fic. The rest of the art is here.

These are the graphics and fanmix I made for my first claim in the [livejournal.com profile] deancasbigbang big bang.

Fic: Burning the Days
Author: [livejournal.com profile] temporalranger
Pairing(s) Dean/Cas
Fic Warnings: references to Hell, light bloodplay, minor language
Summary: When Dean and Cas show up in time to stop Sam killing Lilith, Team Free Will are all set to settle back into a life of saving people and hunting things - but nothing's perfect. Dean's a jerk who can't keep it in his pants; Cas feels there's plenty of room in his for the both of them. Sam's sure you can't be fuckbuddies with an angel and he's going to prove it - just as soon as he finishes scouring his eyeballs with soap.


But when Cas becomes Heaven's Most Wanted and the cops figure out the boys aren't as dead as they should be, Dean and Cas may prove to be both more and less obtuse than expected.

I posted this a couple weeks ago when the art was due, but now I can share my [livejournal.com profile] deancasbigbang mini bang art with you all. It is here on dreamwidth or here on livejournal. I had a ton of fun with this, and [livejournal.com profile] spastic_visions was a dream to work with.
kristin: (the wire: bodie)
A couple days ago I got an email from the [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang mods that a fic had been posted, but the artist never posted their art. As I am helpless to ever say no (see the year I betaed 20+ fics for Yuletide) I agreed to pinch hit. This isn't my typical style, as it isn't a fic I would normally choose. But it was an interesting experience!

Fic: Supanachuru*
Author: [livejournal.com profile] seraphim_grace
Pairing(s): Gen with references to Wincest fanworks
Rating: PG-13
Summary: The second gospel has appeared to the Winchesters via bootleg from Chuck: an anime.

*I realize I spell the title several different ways in the art. I was confused too, but apparently there are a few correct variations.

Fic: We All Fall Down (Ashes Ashes)
Author: [livejournal.com profile] spastic_visions
Pairing(s) Gen (none)
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: Character death (same seen in Swan Song)
Summary: In the days after the Apocalypse, angels fall by the dozens. No one notices. In the wake Lucifer's time on earth, a few falling stars aren't exactly news. But nearly ten years later, something is slowly wiping these newly human angels from existence. A reluctant Dean Winchester finds himself drawn forcibly back into the hunting world- a fallen angel of his own by his side.

[livejournal.com profile] tardis_bigbang was my first big bang challenge ever, last year. So I was delighted to do it again this year. You can find the art I did this year either embedded with the fics or here on the website or here on the feedback journal for the challenge. Go check it out!

This year I was assigned [livejournal.com profile] quean_of_swords's fic Noble Persuits. It is a delightful Donna-centric 10.2/Rose fic set in Pete's World. I had a lot of fun reading a making art for it. It also inspired my favorite piece I made for any challenge this year:

yes, that is an octopus holding a lantern )
Not my typical style, but it actually came out just how I pictured it which is very rare for me.

I also betaed two fabulous fics: Roll on Yesterday by [personal profile] the_afterlight and Rule 39 by [livejournal.com profile] hhertzof. This year we could collaborate with our authors, but I got permission from the mods to keep the art I did for them a secret. I would insert an evil laugh here, but it tends to come out as more of a giggle.

I also did a last minute bonus round for art and did a piece for Adventure of a Lifetime: Relationships by [livejournal.com profile] malicehaughton.

When I was pulling together links for this post I stumbled across the art I did for last year. And now I kinda want to kick younger me for signing up when I'd only been using Photoshop for 6 mo. (And I'm sure next year I will look back on all my work from this year thinking "why did you do this, younger self? you still haven't figured out using a tablet and your manips are highly unrealistic?) But at least I've improved. I try to emulate my beloved Kanye and try to be a doper person. (Seriously, there are few things in life I am more irrational about than Kanye. His twitter is doing nothing to quell my desire to be him when I grow up.)

Here is my art for the amazing Season Ticket on a One-Way Ride by [livejournal.com profile] darksilvercat. You should probably go read it before looking at any of the artwork, not only because it is awesome, but because there are spoilers within.

Fic Rating: NC-17
Pairings: Dean/Castiel
Summary:Before Castiel breaks Dean out of the green room in 4.22, he breaks Anna out of prison. With two angels on Team Free Will, the apocalypse takes a different course. Some things change, some things stay the same, and the world is going to Hell in a handbasket, but in the midst of it all, Dean finds a way to hold his family together. Warning: Character Death.

All images should be SFW (The one possible exception is noted below and won't be apparent unless you view the full-size version.) Click images to see them full-sized (dimensions are listed).

The fic this art was for was not completed. If you have questions about the content of the images, please ask and I will do my best to explain.

These are the graphics and fanmix I made for my first claim for [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang. Thanks to my #safespace friends for being awesome impromptu art betas and cheerleaders.

Fic: Nowhere Man & the Whiskey Girl
Art Rating: G
Fic Summary: Gabriel fell long before the birth of Christ - although that was his last official mission for the home that he had deserted. The fact that he was left more-or-less alone for the first few millenia cemented his belief that their Father really had no interest in his first children any more; Heaven was no longer the same, Michael was not the same, not after the Fall. So he slipped from Heaven, and met a Trickster one day in the south of France. Their years together lead to her exhaustion of the world, and once she leaves Gabriel is the most powerful Trickster in existence. Of course, that all goes to Hell when the Apocalypse starts, and Gabriel finds his loyalties torn between the family he still loves and the new life he has forged for himself on Earth.
