It's SPN/J2 Big Bang time again, which means at at last I am free of deadlines. FREE, I tell you! Well, this particular deadline, at least. Remind me not to claim two stories next year, because that was dumb.

Anyway, this one is for the Supernatural gen story "We Are Legend," by [ profile] tru_faith_lost and [ profile] chocca2. I'll update with a link to it when they post tomorrow, but in the meantime, here's the artwork; click for the bigger versions:

[EDIT: The story is now live; you can find the master post here! And my fellow artist [ profile] xtinethepirate has more art for the story posted here! And today, I love exclamation points!]




Feel free to grab icons, like if you've been dying for a Dean-with-creepy-white-eyes icon all your life or something. Wooohoo!

Here's the story summary, in case you're wondering wtf is going on in this artwork. :D

They averted the Apocalypse, but getting Dean out of Lucifer's clutches wasn't the end of the brothers' nightmare--only the beginning. Now, Sam's a renegade. He has the power of the Four Horseman at his fingertips, but all he really wants is his big brother. Forever. And what Sammy wants, Sammy gets. Except Dean, still bearing the physical "scars" from his interlude with Lucifer, has plans of his own, and he won't back down, no matter what Sam throws at him. What he does, what they do to find each other crosses the line from creepy into downright macabre, but when have Winchesters ever done anything half-assed? This is Subject Two meets one determined sibling.

This is what happens when the Antichrist plays God.

Read We Are Legend

Okay, I finally got around to that Supernatural post. Hooray! Spoilers within up through SPN 4x21, "When the Levee Breaks"

My thoughts, let me show you them. )

In other news, the other day while listening to the classic rock station -- which is where I get my fix of "I'm totally cool like Dean Winchester when I drive down the road listening to this -- and they put on the Bad Company. You know the one. From that truly horrible sex scene I won't mention. Hearing the song again was like having a flashback to 'Nam, only with 100% less 'Nam. I had to change the station. And then I felt violated but the total suckiness of that song. Sorry, Bad Company. But it sucks and that sex scene just made it suck worse.

I've been contemplating lately that recent video -- I have no link, but I'm sure someone will provide? -- where somebody is interviewing Jensen, Jared and Misha and they all mention that Supernatural's female fans hate all the female characters. Which, you know... makes me sad, because they aren't wrong, but I also think that they tend to get a sampling of only angry people. You know, like how if you're working on the complaint line for your company, you start thinking everyone in the world hates you because that's all you ever hear. So I wondered if we should, I dunno... let them know their entire audience isn't misogynous? (Misogynistic? Misogynterrible?) (Don't get me wrong: I don't think it's just the audience that's rolling in the racism and misogyny. But maybe it wouldn't be so bad if they didn't think we all agreed with it?) I wouldn't say I'm proposing an entire campaign, but maybe we could send postcards telling them we're viewers and actually, we do like the female characters? And the black ones? And that we'd like the ones that are something other than black or white, too, if there were any. Really. What do you all think?

Additionally, I'm wondering if there are any fiction/art comms that focus on the minor characters, rather than Sam and Dean? Like a place just for stories about Bobby and Jo and Ellen and even original characters set within the greater Supernatural universe? And if there isn't, is maybe somebody more dedicated than me interested in starting one? (I'd do it, but I have a short attention span. I wouldn't want it to languish.)

Okay, so I owed [ profile] pentapus a story, and mostly this was written just so she'd illustrate it. It was sort of a straight barter. One of these days, there will be pictures of boys with horses. *waits patiently. Okay, not so patiently.*

To summarize: Castiel. Dean. Sam. Horses. That's about it. It's a little cracky. There's not much point. I hope it's entertaining and Dean isn't too deeply ridiculous. (I understand better now, though. Sometimes he just wants to be ridiculous. HE DOES.) Additionally, in case you were wondering, it's true that I am no longer capable of writing fic without horses in it. *headdesk*

It's not beta'ed. Please don't hold it against me. I didn't really want to send it to anyone for them to tell me how pointless it was. ;D
