Year Seven: the year Sam comes home without Pal
I failed miserably at posting a Christmas story, but at least I wrote something, and I'm feeling pretty good about that. I wrote a sort of timestamp to Non Timebo Mala, which if you haven't read, you should read it or this will make no sense. :)

Pairings/Characters: Sam/Dean, original characters
Rating: NC-17
Total Word Count: 8368
Summary: a 1920s AU *very* loosely based on the film, Public Enemy.
Notes/Warnings: abuse, dub-con, rape, harsh images, morally challenged Sam, troubled Dean. There are hints of abuse, physical and sexual, but nothing terribly graphic. The rating is for the overall fic—it varies according to update. For a large part of the fic, the boys are underage.

In this update, the abuse includes rape.

follows from Public Enemies Book One

nine (part one of two parts)

AN: Well, finally an update. We're probably going weird places, so bear with me. This is what happens when you throw your hands up and give in to the characters.

sempre fidele.

Remember Public Enemies?
I'm posting a decent chunk of update. It finally worked itself loose. My stars--the ending of this thing has changed so often in my mind! The only thing that hasn't changed is the last couple of paragraphs, but getting to them, boy-howdy! I figured out what Sam's going to do, the broad strokes anyway. That's half the battle right there. We'll get to the rest after we figure out how to get Dean out of jail. *koffkoff* Whut? I didn't say nothin'.

supahnatchul day!

Does anyone else look at old, old posts filled with replies from defunct journals and think, "I should gank their icons, damn, they're really fucking nice..."

Just me? Okay.

SpNHeatwave Summer Art Challenge

I surprised myself by wanting to participate in this challenge--I tend to keep low-key on my efforts. Something about this hit me at just the right time, and I figured why not? And it was fun, so much more fun than I expected! So, here is my color pencil and tech pen drawing of wee Sammy Winchester and a summer day at the lake.

Smile, Sammy,Collapse )

BB 2016
doogie on a unicorn
Aaaaaaand that's it, folks! BB is done. I've still got a ton of stories to read, so that's cool, and comments to leave for stories that I read but didn't have time to respond to.

My story this year wasn't too bad. It was the finish of an idea I had years ago, something that I pretty much wrote to one scene, as we do sometimes. I'm really glad that I finally completed it. I liked the idea very much, but in all the years before this, it never really seemed to gel for me. I'm still not totally sure it works the way I wanted it too, plus it was really hard writing this particular story strictly from one POV because so much was going on and so much necessarily was left up to the reader to explain to themselves--not always a bad thing, I think, as long as there's enough information to make the story clear.

Another thing that helped the story enormously was me being lucky enough to be chosen by cassiopeia7, an artist whose work I've admired (like crazy much! :D) for a long time. Every illustration she showed me inspired me to work harder on the story. No, really--I think it went from 20-some thousand to over 30 because of her, and I mean good words, lol!

Working with (and I hope always with) firesign10 makes the whole process easier for me. I trust her when she says something is good, and I'm on board with any changes like, 99% of the time. Me being me, sometimes I'm absolutely positive it's better the way *I* put it. No. It's not. ;D I'm not the best person to work with, and I know without a doubt she always pulls her punches with me because I am a whiny baby somewhat delicate flower. And I appreciate it!

So, no telling what the next year will bring, but I hope we'll be doing the BB again. I've got an idea....
