would anyone be interested in beta-ing a fic of mine? it's less than 2k of freeform outsider pov drabble re. lebanon, ks/the bunker and i just need someone to double-check the grammar and make sure it isn't too pretentious. aaand possibly also assistance with finding a suitable title, because i am terrible at that.

sooooooo......... yeah. if this seems like a thing you'd like to do, just pm me or drop me a comment and i will be forever grateful. as an added bonus, you'll probably feel much better about your own writing after looking this over!

(i'd post to the betas comm but i'd rather work with someone i already know, if there happen to be any takers!)

stealing this meme from amberdreams, because it's always a good time to post ficrecs :)

1. an old fic (posted at least three years ago)
2. a new fic (posted within the last six months)
3. a fic you wish had gotten more attention (less than 50 kudos on AO3 or less than 30 comments on LJ)
4. a genfic
5. a fic focused on a female character
6. a fic which made you see a character in a new light
7. a fic which made you ship something
8. a fic which inspired you to write
9. a fic with a particularly memorable line
10. wildcard

Read more...Collapse )

it was actually incredibly difficult to narrow it down to just one fic for each category, so now is a good time to mention that i've got a whole page of ficrecs here! (which...... really needs to be updated........)

Title: Dreams
Characters/Pairings: SamJess
Warnings: N/A
Notes: "I made this over three months ago and forgot to post it on LJ" should be my motto, and understood with every piece of art that I post. Anyway. I listen to too much Fleetwood Mac. Enjoy.

which of ur graphics do you like the most? — steeplechasers

(rich text editor isn't working for some reason so i hope everything here gets formatted properly HMMMM)

ooooh this is a tough one. there are graphics that appeal to me visually that took little to no skill to make, and others that, looking back, i could have made a liiiiittle better — but i had a lot of fun experimenting with new photoshop techniques in order to make them. so maybe i'll choose 1-2 of each because i'm an indecisive prick.

pretty, basic graphics:
- this sam one which was basically me screwing around with blending modes and then scrambling to find some *~*~profound quote~*~* to fill the space.
- this sam one which was probably the most elaborate surreal/collage piece i've ever done, although at the end of the day it's just cutting things out and laying them on top of one another, or messily tracing preexisting screencaps.

technically challenging/fun graphics:
- castiel in this photoset; i had the idea in my head for a long time to do something with the michelangelo quote and i'm still mehh about how the back of his head looks where it's coming out of the marble, but i probably had the most fun with this out of everything i've ever made
- jess in this photoset which was also lots of fun to make, but a pain in the ass to find the right debris stock images for. i later realized i could achieve the same effect with brushes and layer masks... womp womp. (also the physics of it is off, like, is she exploding/crumbling in zero gravity??? @self get your house in order)

tl;dr PHOTOSHOP IS FUN and i really need to make more dean graphics :|

first of all, i am SO SO SO SORRY that it took me this long to answer your questions — particularly madebyme_x, who was due an answer two days ago. it's been a long week, and a long (but not long enough) weekend, and that's my only crappy excuse. but if it's alright, i'm going to answer both questions in one post.


madebyme_x asked: Tell me about your favourite character(s) or OTP.

story_monger asked: You've just been given the power to add one amendment to the Constitution. What is your amendment?

(still taking questions if anyone has anything they'd like to ask!)

steeplechasers asked "why is samjess the best ever, in detail" so i guess we're just gonna jump straight into the deep end. HAPPY JULY, MOTHERFUCKERS.

this post kind of took a life of its own, which i guess when you consider the ship i'm writing about is not a surprise to anyone. so here's a quick breakdown of why i fucking love samjess, in order of simplest explanation to most long-winded and rambly:

(a) i love sam
(b) college nostalgia
(c) i can do (almost) whatever the fuck i want with them
(d) jess is so fucking important
(e) unreliable narration
(f) their relationship is more fucked up than fandom usually makes it out to be

detail, as requested, is under the cut.


some college thesis level shit up in hereCollapse )
and a bit of salt, sorryCollapse )



and that, my friends, is why samjess rocks my fucking socks.

ps: still taking questions for this meme so if you'd like to partake you can hmu here!

i feel like i've been extremely disconnected from spn lately and part of it is because of the new job and the commute that's draining all the energy out of me and part of it is orphan black + silicon valley + preacher commanding all my attention during the week(end) but i really really want to settle back into fandom once my summer shows have finished their current seasons. plus i've got three fic challenges for the late summer/fall that i should be working on, and it's been far too long since i've made any graphics/art.

also speaking of the new job it feels so weird to be making money again! but in a good way, obviously. like, i have a steady stream of income??? what??? i've been pining for a ps4 for months now, and now if i really want to i can actually buy myself a refurb + a couple games and still be relatively okay financially. after dog-walking and hustling for freelance work for the past nine months, a regular paycheck just... fucking blows my mind.

(also a regular client of mine is hinting that she's working on a big project. fingers and toes are all crossed that she'll have more work for me soon!)
